'Erased' - That's definitely the most anticipated show this season for me personally. I can't wait to get around to it.
Ninjajake12 Jan 30, 2016 1:02 AM
PlatinumGames - They're hitting some super nostalgia right here! I swear, I'll lose my mind if they make a 'Johnny Quest', 'Captain Planet', or 'Thunder Cats' game next lol.

I only saw a few episodes of 'TMNT' myself. I don't think I played any of the older games either lol. But I still like 'TMNT' for some reason! Even though it wasn't as dear to me as it was to you, it's still pretty exciting. I'm just glad somebody is going ahead with projects like these. And they're actually decent games! 'Legend of Korra' turned out to be a bust for them, so it's good to hear they're rebounding with these cool, unique games.

I'm hoping for 'Captain Planet' next! Lol.
Ninjajake12 Jan 30, 2016 12:56 AM
Webtoons - Oh, thanks! That's pretty cool and handy! Yes! I wonder how far 'Girls of the Wild' has actually gotten. I've honestly forgotten a good portion of it, but can still remember the premise. Let me know how it is if/when you continue reading it.
Ninjajake12 Jan 30, 2016 12:54 AM
I saw 'The X-Files' premiering lol. I didn't actually watch it, but I had no idea it was coming back on. So is this a reboot, continuation,...?

Isn't this about Superman when he was younger, or something like that? I know it has a bunch of supernatural stuff in it, but wasn't sure if I was thinking of the right show or not.

JET Interview - Nope! It's a simple two-step process. You send in your application, and if you get through, you get an in-person interview. Then if you get past the interview, you're officially a JET. It sounds really simple, but it really isn't! Lol. It's such a long (and pricey) process. I'm kind of glad we went to Miami though. I had fun. It's the first time I've been there, and was kind of surprised by it. There are really small restaurants that we ate at. The first night was at a Sushi-Ceviche (Japanese-Peruvian) place that had maybe 6 tables altogether. Their ceviche was really good though (never had ceviche in my life before then). After the interview (the next day), we went to a small Japanese Yakitori place (next door to the Ceviche place), and got pork belly/chicken yakitori, ramen, curry chicken, and Asahi Black beer. I have some pics of both, so I'll post them on FB probably tomorrow and tag you in them. Everything was literally a block away from our hotel, which was nice. Plus, both places were surprisingly cheap and very accommodating.

Traveling - I sure did! Outside of being sick, bed-ridden, puking, and nauseous half the time lol. My phone is decent when it comes to photography lol. It's no slouch, but my dad has a better version, and that thing takes miraculous pictures! I also tend to shake a bit when holding the phone, so it's not like I'm making the situation better lol. But yeah, you can see all the pics on my Facebook page, so you can tell how I did. I guess I'm not the only one to take duplicates lol. I guess a lot of people do it too! I talked to my friend (who was seriously into photography a few years back), and he does the same thing. It's insurance!

Baking. Lol! That is quite the strange allergy, I have to be honest! I'm pretty glad that I don't have any food allergies. There may be foods that upset my stomach, but nothing that could kill me thankfully. I didn't know being allergic to milk is cool. I missed the memo! Maybe that's a Seattle thing? Lol. I actually don't like sweets either. But when I bake, I usually eat! Cake, Banana Bread...stuff like that, I'd eat. But nothing overly sweet either.
Ninjajake12 Jan 30, 2016 12:22 AM
Crunchyroll - That's what I've been recommending to them for years (on forums) lol. There's no reason to announce a title for regions who can't access it. It gives false hope to people who really want to see it (and are holding out hope it's a dual-simulcast). It's definitely click bait. Yeah! Nothing to say about this season...which is why I really haven't gotten around to any shows this season lol. No must-watch titles, and most titles I'm watching are continuations from last season. Manga app is good. They just need to fix their website format to make it essentially the same way. That can't be too hard to do, right? They can definitely be arrogant and somewhat antagonizing. But I tend to avoid attracting those type of people.

I see where you're coming from. The landscape has totally changed! Funimation used to be an underdog about 2-3 years ago, and now they seem to dictate most of the titles. CR got nothing but scraps this season, and it was similar a few seasons ago as well. If their new setup is as good as we think it is, they can't be considered underdogs anymore...I forbid you to say it lol. They charge for their apps?...We'll see what direction they choose to go with. The game thing still doesn't settle well with me...like you said, it's a money-grab and that grates my ears lol. They're gonna be crappy games too I'm sure. Let me know how those games are lol.
Ninjajake12 Jan 30, 2016 12:07 AM
'Making a Murderer' - To be (brutally) honest, those types of documentaries don't necessarily interest me. I'm not saying I'll never watch it, but it might take me some time to get around to it. It's been a looong time since I've even been on Netflix. I meant to watch 'Psycho Pass' a while back, and it just floated off my schedule. Perhaps this Summer! I'll have a lot more time to do stuff (than Winter break hopefully) and I might be able to watch it then.

'Star Wars' - Yeah, that's what I'm going to do. Just out of respect for the series and all that. I've heard mixed things about 7. But it can be hard to tell the difference between elitists and legitimate criticism. You know, because some people go bat*hit crazy when anyone tinkers with their favorite franchise.

'Fairy Tail Zero' - Have you broken yet!? Well, have you!? Lol. I actually haven't seen the most recent few episodes, so I'm not that far either. But I plan to watch it tonight or tomorrow after catching up on 'Gintama' and 'Mr. Osomatsu' (boom, segue).

'Mr. Osomatsu' - So, that clip is REALLY off-putting. It's a gag anime for sure, but it's also a comedy about living with 5 identical brothers. I guess I can relate since I had two brothers, but I also think the comedy is good without that background. That's also one of the very few times they use crude humor in that context (the titan you-know-what) lol. I actually recommend something outside of Episode 1 for you. I'd suggest any episode between 2-5 or episode 9. There are more normal episodes, trust me lol. It's deceptive because it's not all about potty humor and parodies. But I'll let you decide for yourself lol.

'Academia' - I can't wait until April either! I haven't been this hyped about a show in a very long time.

'Ajin' - Ohh, that explains it. I was kind of confused when I first read it. I wonder why the author left and where he went. Seems weird he would just leave in the middle of a serialization. Speaking of, I read a tiny bit of 'Ajin'. But since it's only 30-35 chapters and not finished yet, I decided to wait. I decided to read 'Wagatsuma-san is My Wife' instead. And man...it's looong. Every chapter is around 25-35 pages or more. He has a real knack for comedy and character awareness.

'Dagashi Kashi' - One of the ones I need to watch this season! Maybe I'll get around to it! I keep saying that, but other things continue to get in my way lol.

'She and Her Cat' - That's impossible! This can't possibly be a coincidence! The author must have read our conversation and he knew it was a brilliant idea.

Ninjajake12 Jan 29, 2016 11:48 PM
'Drakengard 3' - Oh really? I actually never saw the final boss in the game. I only saw about 3-4 of the bosses (most of the sisters), but that's about it. By the time I got back to my friend's house, he had already beat the game. Agh! I hate when boss battles rely on rhythm games! It can get really annoying and frustrating doing it over and over again.
...
Ok, after watching the video, F that noise! Lol. The angles aren't even fair! You have to be on-point because even though they look similar to the last set, the angle messes up your timing.

Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me if 'Nier' and 'Drakengard' are in the same universe. Seeing gameplay from both games, I can tell the style and atmosphere are very similar to each other.

'Valkyria Chronicles' - Yeah, it's definitely the art. I never get tired of it either lol. Oh, that's right. I forgot all about the DLC. That's pretty nice to have!

VR - I don't know...I find it hard growing with any gaming section. It'd be hard just to find the space to use it. That's why I think it will run into the same problems as the Kinect and Playstation Move. I think it's for a really small niche, and it may take 5+ years for it to actually catch on. But by that time, technology will have already advanced past VR. The only demos I've seen of VR was that Knight fighting game, and Minecraft. Otherwise, I don't really know what it brings to console or PC gamers.

Ninjajake12 Jan 26, 2016 10:58 PM
Wow. Is this starting to get ridiculous or what? America is supposed to be the center of freedom of speech, and yet no one can publish a game with themes like "petting girls" or "drugging"(which is WAY more than a stretch)...like really?

Ninjajake12 Jan 23, 2016 12:01 AM
You should go for it!

Hmm, though it is a visual novel. Honestly, I don't think I've played anything quite like that just yet. I wonder how much story it adds to the anime.
Ninjajake12 Jan 21, 2016 3:45 AM
'Silent Voice' - Loved it up until the end. Honestly, I'm really unsatisfied with the ending. It's not that it disappointed me, or that I'm angry about it, but...It just left me wanting sooo much more. I hope some sort of epilogue series or sequel will eventually be drawn, because I really want to see Ishida and Nishimiya talk to Hirose and Shimada now that everyone's older. Of course, I also want to see how everyone's life is after graduation. Then there's the fact that no confessions were made...by anyone. So that's a huge bummer (even if we know what the pairings would be). It just felt somewhat abrupt and aloof compared to everything else that's happened. Still one of the most intriguing and addicting reads I've done in a while (I feel like I'm saying that a lot more these days...maybe I'm just reading better stuff lol). But aghhh...that ending!

Are you going to watch the movie? It's a real downer that it's being made into a film and not a TV anime. On one hand, a film probably fits it much better...but on the other hand, an anime can expand on these characters and give the story more time to develop compared to a film. There's also the problem of anime films not being available in America compared to a TV anime which likely would have been licensed.
Ninjajake12 Jan 21, 2016 3:36 AM
About to link-dump some stuff on you lol.

'Funimation' - Honestly, I'm not sure what they're trying to do. The remodeling/updating of their streaming service was good news. But now it just sounds like they're stretching themselves to markets they don't belong. What business does Funimation even have to be in the mobile-game market? It just doesn't really make sense to me personally. I mean, of course they want to add another competency compared to its rivals, but this feels more like a distraction than an additional selling point. I'm also wondering how the heck they're able to make games based off of their streaming shows...are mobile games included in the licensing deals they signed? Is Crunchyroll able to do the same with their licenses? Just a weird combination to me.

'Ajin' - Hmm, interesting. So I wonder if he's giving up normal manga for good, or if he's simply drawing ero manga as a side job. I haven't read it yet, but I plan to do so next after 'Silent Voice' (which I'll finish tonight). Your thoughts?

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2016-01-18/ajin-manga-creator-plans-to-return-to-ero-manga-roots/.97713

'Valkyria Chronicles' - Honestly, with this cel-shaded art style, I can't tell the difference between the remastered version and the original version lol. Either way, the art still holds up well! I wonder if they'll add extra features to the remastered version...that'd be cool.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2016-01-18/valkyria-chronicles-remaster-story-video-streamed/.97664

Tsuyu and Mineta in color! I really like Tsuyu's costume.

'Dagashi Kashi' - I know this is because of the anime, but wow. This has the potential to be one of the most popular slice-of-life titles in recent memory. Can't wait to watch it.

It's definitely a crazy time/week!

'Making A Murderer' - I've heard of it (it's impossible not to lol). Not sure it's my kind of show...what exactly is it about?

'Star Wars' - Nope, haven't seen it yet! So here's the thing with me and 'Star Wars'. I know many aspects/details of the original movies, but I've never watched them in full. So before I move on to watch the newest one, I was planning on watching the old ones first, which would likely be way after the new one leaves theaters. I know I don't have to watch the originals to understand the new one, but I still feel like it's better that way. I was never a huge fan of 'Star Wars' in the first place like many of my friends are, but I'd still like to properly watch everything (outside of the crappy ones) before seeing the new one.

'Love Riron' - So many good theories! I'll likely forget all of them, but the 'Home Field Advantage' and 'Away Field' theories were great. There was the one that says you should move really fast before a girl actually comes to her senses. And the very first one was saying 'must be tough' to start a conversation. All of them were so great, with a hint of truth to them lol. Maybe it's more of a biography of the mangaka than anything, where he's Aiya. I do appreciate no love triangle...and I also liked both of the girls and their realistic hobbies (playing Monster Hunter). It was a straight-up good romance story. Kind of wish we got some sort of epilogue after they got into a relationship, but that's ok.

'Fairy Tail Zero' - I think it works either way...whether you binge it or not. I think I'll watch weekly, only because I don't want it piling up on me lol. I've done that with a few other shows and now I've got a huge pile to dig myself out of. It's really cute thus far, and it's got a pretty good story. I think I'm going to call it now, that you'll break down and start watching it a few weeks from now lol. It's not like I don't have faith in you waiting...but I don't think you'll resist the temptation after seeing the thumbnails lol.

JET interview - Nope, not a phone interview! It's one thing they make very clear. So in your application, you have to choose a location from around the nation to interview and depart from (if you get in)...it's conducted at the Japanese Consulate. The locations are: Anchorage, Denver, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Detroit, Honolulu, Miami, Nashville, New York, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, Houston, San Francisco, and D.C (Phoenix/Salt Lake City are interview-only locations and have to fly from another another of the listed cities).

So Miami and Atlanta were the closest to me. Atlanta is about an 8-9 hour drive from my home. Miami is about a 5 hour drive from my home. So I chose Miami since it's the closest city to me (thankfully there's one in Florida...other states aren't so lucky). So we have to go all the way down to Miami on a weekday and stay the night (because doing everything in one day would be too stressful) for a 20 minute interview lol. Some people are lucky enough to live close to the cities. It's a shame they don't have one in Tampa or Orlando...but oh well. So yeah, it'll be quite the adventure next Tuesday-Wednesday (10 days from now). I'll let you know how it goes after I get it done lol.

Yes, that is a clear-cut sign to spam me with messages! Lol. But feel free. I'll try to get back to them ASAP.
Ninjajake12 Jan 16, 2016 2:07 PM
Hey, long time no talk! Just a few short updates. I've been reading manga/watching anime more lately, so I have more things to talk about.

'Love Riron/Theory' - I really enjoyed it. Every time I thought I might stop reading, the art and comedy drew me back in. Maybe a little too straightforward regarding the relationship, but that's fine with me. I wasn't expecting Aiya to get a backstory like he did, so that was nice. Again, the comedy was really enjoyable and the facial expressions were priceless! I'd give it an 8/10 or so.

'Fairy Tail Zero' - I'm really enjoying this change of pace (and characters). Mavis is such a delight to watch, and Zera (voiced by Kana) is so cute as well. Excellent voice acting, and I can't wait to see where the story goes from here.

'Silent Voice' - Still loving it. It verges a little too much into melodrama, but I'm perfectly fine with that. I like how every character has some depth to them, even the new ones (Mashiba, Nagatsuka). I'm about 10 chapters away from finishing it, and will likely be done in the next few days. Admittedly, things got really awkward and kind of hard to read after they decided to make a movie, but it hasn't stopped me yet. Though the inconsistent characters do feel...off. Sometimes they're nice, and other times they're super b*****...especially Kawai and Nagatsuka. But other than that, it's really moved its way into one of my top manga. It's nice to read a story like this from time to time.

'Mr. Osomatsu' - I'm not recommending you watch this, but you should watch the 1st episode. It's stuffed with so many parodies ('AOT', 'Love Live', 'Bleach', 'Naruto', etc) that it's really hilarious. I love that they make fun of today's anime differences compared to the 60's and 70's. Unfortunately, its first episode got taken down from Crunchyroll and off the air due to copyright infringement (which I think is a load of bull). So you'd have to watch it 'illegally' even though it's actually licensed and perfectly legal. I'm pretty angry about it to be honest, that I had to visit another site to watch it. That's why I'm watching it/marathonning it now, because who knows when another episode will be taken down or modified. But I felt less guilty since it was originally on CR and got forced to take it down. Anyways, I recommend watching the first episode. I think you might enjoy it. The rest of the series, you probably wouldn't since it's mostly a comedy. But I kind of see why everyone was making a huge deal out of it. Here;s the Titan parody clip from the first episode (as you know I'm a fan of parodies, so I support this episode lol). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmKrSquSHc8 I also highly recommend you give the first part of the third episode a watch. It's a 'Saw' parody, and it's hilarious.

My interview for the JET will be in less than two weeks. Pretty nervous, yet excited. So with me practicing for that and with my first week of class, I'll be a bit busy the next few weeks. But I think I'll still be able to fit in a few shows here and there. I actually just started 'Actually I Am' (something you wouldn't enjoy) a few days ago.
Ninjajake12 Jan 10, 2016 10:58 PM
I genuinely hate when they announce titles like that. I've always been a proponent of region-specific announcements. If it's available in North Africa and the Middle East, then post the announcement in those respective languages on their portal. I don't see the reason it's being announced on the English site. Doesn't surprise me Scott did it lol. A frustrating article posted by a frustrating writer.

It's fine. It's fair game. I'm not going to deny anything you've said about CR. All of the deficiencies you've listed are legitimate weaknesses of Crunchyroll. I don't know if/when they'll drop flash, but hopefully it will be sooner rather than later. This season is somewhat of a laughingstock. Outside of 'Erased', 'Active Raid', 'Garokawa', and 'Myriad Colors', the rest of their titles are givens ('Gate S2') or nonsense shows. I will say that the CR Manga mobile app is really good. I'm beyond pleased with it. Now if they could do that to their main site, that'd be so much better. Now I just read manga on my phone instead of on my computer, even though the screen is about 1/20 smaller lol.

Hmm, I think I might have to disagree with you about Funimation being the underdog lol. I think you get that feeling from the CR community, whom can be pretty arrogant about the service CR provides. I've also been known to defend CR when people complain about them (well, it's more like whining than complaining). But I've always seen both as equal rivals. Maybe 2-3 years ago, Funimation was a major underdog...but over the past 1-2 years, they've easily been a major player trading blows with CR every season.

Funimation finally got the clue and decided to update their website. Hopefully they're fixing the right things, and not making unnecessary changes or additions. They need to focus on performance and not bells and whistles...which is something I feel like might happen. Sure, they'll increase their streaming range and compatibility...but will it matter if the streaming service still stinks? One thing that has always annoyed me is the clutter on their website...it's terrible. They need to clean it up and streamline it, and I'll be satisfied (and more inclined to use their site!). It will be very interesting to see what these new changes bring!
