Hey, there)

Oh, don't worry about replying too late. Same here, I am kinda late replier)
Did you play something worthy lately? I cannot find a good game with a meaningful plot for a long time)) Everything is so generic and cliche.

I enjoyed the Annihilation film very much. I love Natalie Portman and many moments very creep as fuck. You remember the scene with a camera and the clone? I screamed like a crazy! Book is different in plot (spoiler: there was no adultery in book) but the atmosphere is pretty much the same.

Well, Chekhov is okay. I am mostly not into Russian literature (except Dostoevsky). Strugatsky books are really good. Especially the late ones, when they become completely disillusioned with communism. I also recommend Stalker by Tarkovsky. These are totally different works. Plot, atmosphere, narrative are loosely connected. Yet, to my mind, both are masterpieces.

Thanks for the rec) I am reading 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' right now, so I guess drug theme is the topic of the month. And I've also read Ultra Heaven. It is so insane! Have very 90s feeling in it. I lost the track somewhere near the end, and I think the author did as well XDDD

China Miéville also sounds good! I was supposed to read him for about a hundred years ago. My book pile is bigger and bigger, as usual)

I saw Shadow House in your favorites and gave it a try. It's good! I got completely no idea where it is going to end. Will it be sad, or happy, or mind-blowing, I still have no idea and that's perfect)

Kono Manga ga Sugoi provides a pretty good benchmark. Thanks to it, I got to know Shingeki no Kyojin. I read it in January 2011, just as scans were released. I still think I was one of the first international readers haha)) I even uploaded some of its key characters here on MAL.)

Borges is amazing! And in general I prefer short stories over 1000-pages books.


Oh, I kinda have a very diverse taste) I love sci-fi stories, strange fiction, mysteries, I do love good non-fiction. If it's good, I also read young adult and business literature.

Stuff that I mostly don't like is postmodernism, award-nominated authors. 90% of Nobel and Booker staff is pretentious shit, though that's just my opinion.
Classics is ok, but sometimes it's too biased with prejudices. Like, last year I tried to read Lovecraft, and his stories were so freaking racist I JUST CANT. I love American classics - Up the Down Staircase, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Outsiders, anything J. D. Salinger.

If I could recommend just one book - it would be Annihilation. Please read it, it is MINDBLOWING. I never read anything like it. The film is also good by the way, yet it's totally different.

Night Film by Marisha Pessl is awesome.

I love Expanse series books, that's the most realistic sci-fi created.

I love the books of Strugatsky brothers. I am very critical of any USSR cultural legacy. But those guys are bloody geniuses. Their Roadside Picnic was incredible.

Other favorites: Neuromancer, City of Stars, The Book Thief, In the Night's Garden, The City of Dreaming Books (this one was recommended by my good friend on MAL, who did disappear from here for some reason).
I also love everything by Terry Pratchett. Whenever I have difficult times, I re-read his books and life seems not as shitty.

Sorry for the long babble, I just love talking on books.)))

If you have any other recs, I'd be happy to hear them)))

Thank you very much. I will try both of your suggestions. If I must give you a suggestion to read, did you read "In miso soup" by Ryu Murakami?

I just bought it as it has real good reviews at good reads. You can try it. I will read it after finishing Headhunters by Jo Nesbo. You can read that too. BTW, thanks again for suggesting me.
Edaniel Feb 26, 5:25 AM
Yeah, it seems like the number of English scanlation group is steadily declining. I remember like in 2013 I had plenty of favorite translators, frequently checked their pages and new manga there. Now there are so few. And especially interesting (indie) manga is disappearing. Of course, Shounen Jump titles are always gonna be translated, but what about fresh new manga? Nope. Every year I watch the list of winners of Kono Manga ga Sugoi, and only few of them are translated(

I highly recommend reading 'If on a winter's night a traveler' by Italo Calvino. I mostly do not like postmodernism stories, but this one was really good))

I have a bit of a vice versa situation. Now I read a lot more than I used to. I read a lot in public transport while commuting to work/studies, or during lunch breaks at work. But I don't have a possibility to read manga or watch anime not at home.
Edaniel Feb 23, 2:28 AM
I thought Ultra Heaven's on hold, so I didn't wanna start till it ends. But if you say it's finished, it'd give it a try. Thanx a lot!)

Oh, unfortunately, I don't have any link for reading & and Metamorphose no Engawa in English, since I read them online in Russian :( I read like 90% of time in English, but the are rare cases when translation in Ukrainian/Russian are quicker and I grab the chance.

I see you plan to watch Michiko to Hatchin. A brilliant decision! I love it so much. I need to rewatch it too))

BTW, your book list seems good! (Italo Calvino is love) Do you have Goodreads profile?
Edaniel Feb 19, 4:31 AM
Hi there!
Nice to meet you!)

You have a really good taste in manga. Totally in love with your list!

Have you read something good recently? Any manga recs?)
Height Feb 14, 12:27 PM
I only read Machida-kun the other day, actually. I even wrote a review on it if you want to check it out. And yeah, Cross Game is amazing. Adachi is one of favourite mangaka, 2nd after Mizukami for me. And no worries, glad to make new friends with similar interests ^^
Height Feb 11, 6:09 AM
Thanks for the friend request ^^

I did enjoy Breath of Fire III and IV. I thought they were both equally very good. X-2 was a weird game. It had a good combat system and some interesting ideas but it was a bit of a cash grab. It was a way to use lots of assets from Final Fantasy X to cut costs but still be able to charge money for a full price game.

Kaijuu no Kodomo looks very pretty. I hadn't heard of that movie. Very unique art style.
patchworkpants Feb 6, 4:33 PM
Aw man. That's a shame. I think I've only gotten to the actual ending once. I have played through the entire game till disc 3 at least three times. The story content basically ends at the end of disc 2 and then all there is left is side stuff and the big end area leading to the end bosses so I tended to just stop playing there. All the major plot twists/reveals happen on disc 2. Except Aerith dying.

I like VIII and IX a lot too but VIII has a very broken combat system and to me IX has a weaker story (but still very good). VII is the closest to perfect to me. Some people say VI is the best and I did enjoy it but it didn't feel quite as epic to me as the PSX ones. Everything felt a bit less fleshed out.

Have you played any of the others?

I really want to watch the Made in Abyss movie sequel more than anything at the mo but the English version isn't out yet and I think the Japanese one is still at the cinema. Do you know how it usually works with movie releases like that for western release? Do they ever go to cinema or will it be a straight to DVD/download thing?

I've never been a position where an anime I like has a second series/movie sequel coming out. Most of the ones I watched were one and done or they were older and had already finished.
