No. The Com-to-Com is exclusively visible *only* to the two people actually having a conversation to begin with. But if you're looking for privacy, yes, anyone can see the comments we're throwing back and forth to each other by looking at our subsequent pages, kind of like Youtube comments. That's how it was intended to begin with. If you want to have a private conversation, there's a PM system fairly implemented into MAL.

Well, it's only between the two people who actually have the conversations, so I'm not quite sure what your problem is.

I'd actually never heard of the rumor prior to this, but it's probably less likely to sell if we don't put a big name on it.

Regardless of Michael Bay's reputation, his stuff still sells - though it's hard to tell whether that's on the explosions or the trademarked names that were there to begin with. It'd still be an easier sell to a larger audience with his name behind it, whether it's crap or not.

So there's a rumor that Michael Bay is directing an Evangelion live-action movie.

And people are in uproar about it.

When do you get out?
Kiniest May 24, 2014 10:21 AM
I'm back. I got busy with school work, so I dropped a couple shows I wasn't interested in for the sake of catching up to the season.

Do you believe that intelligence is a measurable virtue?

Or that while human value is built upon subjectivity, the quality of things can still be measured by that human value?

DAME. DAME. DAME. DAME. DAME. DAME. DAME. DAME.

I got a charger handed to me.

Yes, it's got the furry lovechild in it.
I said you'd give out a 6 because I know your tastes well enough to assume that you'd appreciate how it fights against itself as a kid's show and brings up legitimately questionable themes such as divorce, suicidal depression, and domestic dispute. But you'll probably still be ticked off by its ultimate nature as a Digimon series. Maybe watch a bit of the first season, first, to see how different the narrative is.

Pay attention to that face. Much of that tone is reflected in the final arc.

I didn't really spend much time on those, just thought "how did I feel about this show" as I went along and accordingly finished them. Don't know why I put so much in for Tamers.

Edit: Late edit.
Kiniest May 4, 2014 1:26 AM
So, I just finished Digimon Tamers. Watch it. You'll give it a 6.

The sun is an ally against the cold of the winter, a time when you must feel the chill of the world all around your existence - your only friend being the warmth the sun can still provide, until you must go to sleep and become enveloped by that cold.

But then the sun betrays you, and the moon becomes your ally, becoming the only providing you relief from the arrogant sun that grows overconfident after you praise its warmth - you no longer desire its warmth, and wish to go back to the days of the cooler winds.

The season is changing, damn it's hot.
Kiniest Apr 22, 2014 5:32 PM
I feel like praising the moon, now.
Kiniest Apr 15, 2014 12:08 PM
Happy birthday. A prayer to the sun?
Kiniest Apr 12, 2014 6:38 PM
Well - that's pretty fair, then. But I feel like as opposed to pacing itself as it wishes, HxH just tells whatever story it wants within the same universe. The first episode isn't the greatest thing in the world, but you'll see as the show goes on why it's so good. Perhaps not until the Yorknew arc, or perhaps not until the Chimera Ant arc. Regardless, there are parts of the series that never cease to impress: the Chimera Ant arc is what really makes me call this show great. It takes everything we know about Killua and Gon, turns it upside down, puts both the villains and the heroes in lights that wouldn't have worked in a conventional anime series, and delivers what may possibly be one of the tensest and emotional rides in anime.

If you want me to give you a typical runthrough, here's how I felt as the show went on:
(Introduction) 1-3: Meh.
(Hunter Exam)4-23: Huh. This is fun to watch.
(Killua's Family)24-26: Boring.
(Heaven's Arena)26-40: Huh. This is fun to watch.
(Yorknew Part 1)40-50: Oh. Wow.
(Yorknew Part 2)51-58: Oh... wow.
(Greed Island)59-74: Huh. This is fun to watch.
(Chimera Ant Part 1)75-100: Shit, this is getting really interesting.
(Chimera Ant Part 2)101-Now: Holy fuck.

...to give you the most basic idea of how each arc feels.

Keep in mind the manga has ran since 1998 and only has 150 episodes at its most drawn out state. The man takes time to think about his story.

Regardless, Hunter x Hunter just goes where it wants to go - the Hunter Exam arc is an entirely different story compared to Chimera Ant. The characters and the setting are consistent, but rather than being a drawn out story, it's multiple different stories following the same characters in the same world.

There's a clear difference between turning your brain off in a show like Valvrave that intends to put human characters in a human setting and is as unintentionally absurd as possible and something that deals with a setting that's fairly illogical to begin with in and of itself.

Kill la Kill is a show *about* an insane world and its insane characters. Once the characters finish up with each other, the world becomes fairly standard. It doesn't need an anarchic narrative to be anarchic. I don't see your point there.

With your HxH comment, you're extremely unclear. If you don't want to watch it because of its shounen elements, or it isn't your thing, save yourself the trouble. I didn't really start liking HxH until the third episode or so, myself. But if you can't get into it by the end of the Hunter Exam arc, it's not for you. (Well, the Chimera Ant arc is the greatest part, but you probably won't get that far if you dislike it)

Now explain what you mean by "long shows have it easier than short ones". If you don't like something, say you don't like something. Don't be so cryptic.
