haha hello :)
brianez Apr 5, 2015 7:55 AM
That's good to hear! Yes, interesting material and especially good instructors will do that to you. Good luck on your finals! Sounds like you've got a good grip on everything.


Wow, so dating has made you broke? Or is that just the general condition of your wallet. Sounds like it's a good thing you guys don't go to the same uni so you can focus on work? And as they say distance makes the heart grow fonder


Wow, you remembered? Yeah, I've been doing better lately, thanks for asking. Some stressors are now gone and I've been working a lot on managing my time better and being on a schedule. I've a natural propensity for being disorganized and all over the place especially when I have a lot to do, so I have to ground myself every once in a while.


I'm waiting to marathon KnB s3 too! And same with Jojo s3, except I'm a lot less excited for that one. Lately my focus has been on the newly airing anime. I always get really excited and giddy every three months when a new season of anime premieres, then after a few weeks the excitement will ware off, I'll drop most of the shows,and start focusing on older anime. It's a lovely cycle

Hey! How's it going? I haven't talked to you in a while
brianez Jan 3, 2015 11:17 AM
Lol, there's nothing wrong with that. It just means you really like anime. I personally use anime as a way to relax and de-stress myself during chaotic times, and as a way to cure boredom when I have nothing to do, so I'm always watching stuff haha. But good luck to you, I hope you're able to focus and get a lot done academically, and spend quality time with new gf ^^

Right now I'm trying to get through Zeta (Camille wtf?!) so I can move on to other Gundam series that I'm more interested in. Besides my gundam saga, just trying to finish up shows and cut down the number of things I am watching. At one point I got over excited and started like 20 different series, which is too much.

Also just finished watching Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal which was so good I don't want to watch anything else right now. The last time this happened was after I watched Berserk two years ago. It's depressing, after seeing something really good, 90% of the other stuff you're watching doesn't seem worth it. Have any shows ever made you feel like that?

We are trying to revive the MAL Book Club. It would be nice if you can drop by sometimes.

(not the admin, just a volunteer)
brianez Dec 30, 2014 8:09 PM
Yep, I'd almost even say better later than earlier, considering maturity,but maybe that's just what us late bloomers say to comfort ourselves haha.

Oh, that's interesting. Yeah I definitely want to check that one out now. Any new shows you're watching?
brianez Dec 27, 2014 12:05 AM
Yep, I managed to learn a bit about Japanese history as well. The first emperor?! Yeah! So he's a main character in the show? I wonder how much they deviate from his actual life. Anime always gets really wonky when it comes to adapting from other people/stories/figures. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, in fact it often turns out really good and interesting, like Magi for example. Canon wise it's a hot mess, but story wise it's brilliant.


Lol, just saw your announcement here on your profile page. Is it true (about the new girlfriend)? If so, congratulations!
brianez Dec 19, 2014 1:54 PM
Hmm I can't give much advice on majors, but from what I know comp sci is a really good one and it's high in demand so if you like it go for it, and good luck! I was an East Asian studies major with an emphasis on language and history, so I can speak Chinese. I miss uni, it went by pretty fast.

Are you interested in watching Cross Ange? If you liked Valvrave, then you might find this one interesting. They have a lot of similarities imo, and they're both dismissed pretty quickly because of their campy (or in this case sexual) elements. I've been enjoying the heck out of that show and talking about Valvrave makes me think about it.
brianez Dec 16, 2014 6:31 PM
Thanks! I'm hoping everything works out soon too. Ah, well that encourages me to keep it on my PTW list, I'll get around to it one day. That's interesting that you're into genetic modification. It honestly kind of freaks me out. Besides wishing we could lower the incidence of diseases or debilitating traits, I haven't given it much thought.

So you're in uni? I just graduated a few months ago. Do you already know what you plan to study? Just noticing you have Valvrave in your favorites.....you're a good person. Love that show
brianez Dec 15, 2014 5:41 PM
Well I'm doing fine overall, but I'm going through a really stressful time right now and have some anxiety (even though that's totally not like me). All's good though.

Thanks! Yeah I've contemplated Kingdom for a long time now, but that cg scares me. I'll give it another shot one day when I'm ready for it. My list is comparatively small and there are so many shows that still really want to watch, so I have to pace myself. I've only seen 6 episodes of MSG and so far so good, but I need to watch more to really form an impression. But thanks, I'll keep that in mind and check it out if I do enjoy MSG.

Yep Magi season 2 was really awesome. The first season was good, but left quite a lot to be desired, so I was really surprised when I enjoyed the sequel as much as I did. On a side note, I see you have Yamato Kira as one of your favorites. What do you like about his character? He was never one of my favorites, but I found him to be likeable enough (contrary to all the hate), and I identified with his character a lot too, especially at the beginning when he's been thrust into the war and is stressed and confused with a bit of angst.
brianez Dec 14, 2014 5:31 PM
Hi :) How's it going? I was wondering what anime your signature is taken from.

Also I see you're an infj. I'm an infp :P very different but I've always found infj's to be interesting

Also, I noticed you have Densetsu Kyojin Ideon: Sesshoku Hen (also known as The Ideon: A Contact) on your list. Just want to highlight that it's basically a recap of the original 38 episode series, made so viewers could understand what was going on in the ultimate conclusion "Densetsu Kyojin Ideon: Hatsudou Hen" (The Ideon: Be Invoked).


The result is what you'd expect when you try to cram that many episodes into a 90 minute movie; the pacing is too fast and it's difficult to connect with the characters.
SightScreen Dec 2, 2014 9:18 PM
Sorry for the late reply.

There are a number of subtle links & references in Space Runaway Ideon that suggest it's a prequel to the Universal Century Timeline, although it would pre-date it by millions, possibly billions of years.

Tomino also penned a One-Shot Gundam Manga (forget what it was called) that strongly hints that the events of Ideon did take place long before the original Mobile Suit Gundam.

There's nothing concrete though, so I may have been drawing a long bow by including it in the U.C. Timeline. Having watched 'Space Runaway Ideon' and 'The Ideon: Be Invoked' myself, I can't help but think they're connected to the Universal Century Timeline, mainly because of the ending in Be Invoked (which I'm not spoiling), although that's just my interpretation.

Yeah I was talking with Jizzy about that and we both thought the OST was Kanno's at first--sounds reminiscent of her, but not quite. That track you posted sounds like it could have been taken from one of my favorite ost's, Gits 2nd Gig--love it. I'm on ep 10 and it was fantastic--Jin's development. The D-1 battles are playing second fiddle to story and characters so I'm liking this. Apparently the second half gets really intense...
