Finally someone that agrees with me on Gurren Lagann. It wasn't awful, but it was just too flawed.

Same here. Been a while since I last had the willpower to sit through 24eps of a new-ish series.
There's a lot of cute short manga getting anime adaptations next year, though. I'm currently reading Colors that's like if Calvin & Hobbes were three cute girls, Takagi-san and Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou. 2018 is looking so sweet so far, I gotta watch out for diabetes.

Hahaha, look at your anime list old girl! You should switch from photobucket to other image hosting.
P.S. love your reviews!!

Well, she makes good money, and even offered to pay my dental bills (if I'd known how things would work out I'd have taken the money), and a big part of my problem is I don't know anybody locally to actually be a good influence (dealing with family drives me fuckin' nuts, but that's all I have), so it was a symbiotic relationship before she went crazy. Really could have done a lot of good for each other (and did, before the baby-daddy started threatening her)
The specialists available to me on this fucking Obamacare bullshit aren't exactly special, so a sugarmama is really what I need right now, haha.
The hardest part, for me, is we were best friends--sex and affection can be easily replaced, but it's the conversations I was trying to hold onto.

Thank god you and I never got freaky. We can still hold a conversation without you freaking out over your feelings, haha. Don't think any woman has survived me this long.

I actually liked Kimi no Na wa, as I was expecting it to be terribly overrated. I'm disappointed in most of Shinkai's work, where this was an 8.5 for me. (think I rounded it up to a 9 on my list). The story was interesting and seemed fresh to me, it pulled a few surprises I really didn't see coming (despite some contrivances), and I actually cared about the main characters (even if nobody else). So it's not the second coming of Jesus some people make it out to be, but it was more enjoyable than all the mediocre crap I'm beyond sick of. (more into American TV lately--watching Hannibal and catching up on TWD)

Hey!
Are you watching Tsurezure Children?
It's a currently airing half-length (12min per ep) romantic comedy based on a 4koma about a handful of teenager couples doing cute couple things.
The synopsis makes it look like some dumb seasonal rom-com but it's pretty original and isn't filled with the usual cringe-worthy tropes. I actually started watching because of the staff involved in its production. Most of the female seiyuu cast did Love Lab together and I loved their chemistry, it is the first series Kaneko Hiraku (director) is leading that isn't some dumb ecchi, and Tenmon is doing the soundtrack (after years without composing for TV series).
You should give it a try if you haven't already. Guess it fits your style :)

Hey, sorry for the long delay, again. Really rough couple'a months.

"Sorry about your summer. What happened? Health or... I am almost afraid to ask. You better had not done something dumb though. I would have to thrash you."
Thrash away, haha. :P
Well, the health issues compounded on the life issues. I was already at my stress threshold. Still haven't gotten my surgeries, everything's been so hectic, and there's really nobody I can rely on.
Things with that woman who I agreed to move to Canada to help raise her kids just got really fucking crazy and I had to finally chase her off; brutally enough I felt like shit about it... and then had a mod remove the alt account she created on the ENTJ forum, presumably to stalk me. Sad thing is, BPD aside, she's the smartest woman I've ever met (152 IQ) and has my exact sense of humor, so I still miss the batshitcrazy rascal, haha.
Teaching my rabbit to do the Monty Python thing just to be safe.

So how was your summer? Hopefully drama-free.

Oh damn, moving so far sounds like an adventure. I can understand not wanting to separate your kids from what they're used to, but they're still young enough they probably haven't made any serious connections yet. (not many people actually still have friends from that age as adults, we change so much in our teens) If you think it would provide a better environment for them, I say go for it.

Haven't watched much anime--they made a second season of Shingeki no Kyojin after four years. How fucking often does that happen? Took over two decades for Berserk. What next, they finally going to finish Pandora Hearts?
Probably the only thing of note I've seen was Kimi no Na wa; I expected it to be as overrated as everything by Shinkai, but it was actually pretty good.

"You know what makes my head really explode? The moving away trope at the end of romance anime. I literally want to stab any author who uses this in their story in the throat."
But it's fairly common in Japan, and you've said you'd never do a long distance relationship, so you should be more sympathetic to it. :P But then, I don't watch many romances for it to have annoyed me yet. Would you prefer if a relationship is dissolved by amnesia? :D (actually, I think they did that in Ef, didn't they?)

Hah! I think I mentioned the non-binary thing to you once like a year ago, as I'd seen it on a couple profiles. I'm so old I had to look it up at the time. Seriously, it sounds like something an android would say. Far as I'm concerned, they should have male, female, and maybe hermaphrodite so the lucky kids who get peanut butter and chocolate don't have to pick a side. Or just leave it fucking blank if you don't want people knowing what you are, but made-up genders because you don't associate with your organs is fucking retarded. I don't associate with my liver. Gonna start referring to my race as non-mamallian so I don't get lumped in with humans.

Love your reviews! :D

Of course changing your list every time your taste changes is a waste of time, as it is constantly remolding itself. My point was more about making adjustments to exalt those which you consider best at current time. Chances are those will not drop very low in the future. Oh, you were/are a DJ? That's interesting, Was it just a hobby or a job?

Oh, that explains it. There's a lot of broken links of Photobucket in your profile and list so is hard to read anything there. I have a very simple profile so I don't have that type of problems lol.

I see. I try to not use high scores that often, that said I don't use the full scale either. But I get what you say, the more you watch the harsher you become. Maybe because you start to see the repeating tropes so much you don't enjoy them (if you ever did) and shows start to not impress you that much.

You can disable getting messages from strangers, if it annoys you that much. Hope you know that.

truuuuuuuuuuuuu
Valkeiser Aug 23, 7:54 AM
Fair enough. Updating scores to reflect one's current taste is hard, which is why I limit it to 1-8 scale and leave the top two for those I currently consider my top. Is the comment section you say the hidden one? I use tags for the time being as they're more accessible and help me remember my thoughts on a show. Is there any reason you don't like updating scores?

I can totally get that. I've never had too much time to watch anime or western shows for that matter, so I try to pick up things that I think I'll like or I'm st least curious about them.
Sonal1988 Aug 23, 7:20 AM
Same. There are people with 1k 'friends' on their lists and I'm like, why even bother adding people? Are they collectibles that you can show off to people you know?
"Besides I like mine small so I can actually find peoples profiles on my friend list."
Ditto!
Dunno about MAL's limits on messages or friend requests. Haha. Hell will freeze over when I'll learn to know of these stats by myself 😂
Sonal1988 Aug 22, 10:30 PM
"Have you been spying on me!!!"
Maybe ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

I kept getting random requests too, despite putting a disclaimer that I won't accept them. So...... I took off the friend request option as a massive FUCK YOU to everybody who didn't bother going thru my profile.
Valkeiser Aug 22, 4:57 PM
Thanks for answering!

Yeah, I did read your rating scale but as you said not many are consistent with them, so I was just trying to understand it better. I do get where you're coming from, your mean makes sense considering you use 6 as the 'average' score. My question was more about what you said, that most users consider ratings below 5 too harsh to give to a show, even if they didn't like it. Can't say I don't understand, as I was like that until my recent rescore, in which I wanted to stand out those few shows I consider above the rest. Of course that was easier on my case because I don't have many entries but it's still a hassle. In my opinion most works in any media are average and just a few stand out, so using 5 as the middle point a range from 4.5 (harsh) to 6.5 (soft) mean would be ideal.
Valkeiser Aug 22, 4:11 PM
Oh, I see. Any reason you use a 5-10 scale?
