PS: This is the music/Levi's theme. Only 3mil views. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jqSy8E9JLQ

I know, I know: still no msg. It's coming. Can't do line breaks where typing at the mo. You watching S2 of Shingeki reminded me that you haven't watched the best part of the anime: Levi's 'No Regrets' backstory. Way better than the manga spinoff it adapts and has an OVA-onry piece of music that stays with you. I didn't like Levi until I heard him cry in despair, liek. Also: I watched a YT vid that showed manga fight between Levi and Beast Titan, btw. Baseball pitching...

Hey, just fyi, I haven't forgotten to reply. Your 'dun expect reply until May' made me lazy, and my Windows Tablet (I type using bed/TV nowadays) died at start of May. Will deffo send message back your way soon..ish.

I came to show you the amazingly epic (music, omg) Reiner AoT S2 reveal but I see you've seen it already. So, I'll share what I've been enjoying: ep6 casual Reiner chitchat WTF reactions on YT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ibIR6ZVTQY&t=4m40s

Nice about me

Came here from Shingeki no Kyojin's review and since,you are still reading it.It's good enough..i guess

-Just passing by
AironicallyHuman Mar 2, 9:01 PM
Huh, you liked Gantz: O(gasm) more than I expected given how they did a 'if you're new to Gantz' first half. Can understand why you'd go high tho given the eye-candy/fanservice. That was the last time the manga wasn't shite: the Osaka 100p alien.

This reply deffo counts as late given I said a few days over a week ago. Gone 4AM UK time as usual, but I'll try.

I honestly don't know how I'd handle that transition to a 'fulfilling, normal adult life' where I'd balance education with work and have no time for anything else. The thought of becoming a cog in a machine with no purpose beyond continued survival scared me. Naturally that would've been my path had I not run away from school but I've never thought I'd be any happier with that lifestyle. I do get how you'd come to cherish wasting those few precious hours each day on important tasks such as monging on Reddit/the internet--you come to value pointless time wasting things when time limited. Think everyone experiences that in some form or another.

The thoughts you type of - that your fragile facade will eventually be eroded as pressure mounts and the general fear of existing around others but not being one of them is a core theme of No Longer Human / what my username is a play on, as it happens. Some people do seem to have either a natural stupidity that makes them insensitive to such things or they simply have the mental strength required to just push on. They get a release from stress by socialising, parting and all the rest. But for introverts that want to enjoy their own time, that time being limited and needing to hide stress around others makes life very different. My manchild existence is to avoid that, as much as anything. The fact you're enduring, even, at least means you have more about you than me.

$165 per month, even the £ exchange rate wasn't a joke, would still be a farcical amount. You ain't got much choice but to be depressed/anxious for that amount! In the UK you only have to pay a minimal sum towards your medication, or are even fully covered depending on benefits. But the NHS is breaking down to the point patience now have quotas and, rather than the health of people being prioritised, you get given 5min appointments to mention one problem at most then shown the door. So, the other side of the expensive coin ain't ideal, either.

That was a pretty cool girl from your dad: helping to cover the cost of seeing your girlfriend. Have you made a date for when you next fly over, in-between work/studying? I know my words over not relying on someone too much were meaningless: I have a friend (male, rather than female) I've typed to on the internet daily to for around a decade. I can't just tell myself not to lean on that friendship to cope, in case we stop talking or whatever. Whether its love or friendship dependence, there's no off switch for that kinda thing when you're a lonely sod. But, yeah: whilst telling someone depressed to always expect the worst is retarded, when you're emotionally vulnerable, all you can do is expect the worst so you aren't totally crushed. But, heyho: I'm sure you'll be fine if you and your girl have gone as far as to discuss the subject/understand each other.

Well, one day, be sure to watch Vikings and fall in love with Travis Fimmel's eyes. His performance compares to Walter White, tho you may have seen him before in Son's of Anarchy. I ain't watched that so I just saw Travis Fimmel=Ragnar. I haven't watched Twin Peaks, tho I did try an episode in ages past, but I have played a game called Deadly Premonition that has a cult following and was inspired by its cheesy mystery-weirdness surrounding murders. Iirc, second season it was cancelled/goes to shit. As for the books you mentioned, I shall look them up on the internet to get a better idea tomorrow/see how they compare to Game of Thrones as far as premises go. George artin does strike me as a guy that just got lucky by drawing people in with what seemed like unflinching 'kill main character off' medieval brutality. Ofc, it was only later people realised the REAL main characters have plot armour.

Guess that'll do for now, anyway. Sorry for usual delay and hope you feel better than when you sent the last msg. If you need another Gantz booster tho, read Inuyashiki. Getting an anime later this year but it's Oku does his entertaining weirdness thing we both loved in Gantz.

Heya. Will get to your message in coming days (4AM UK time when I came on) but, just in case you still have Netflix/babes and don't know, that amazing looking CG adaptation of the Gantz Osaka arc is exclusively available via Netflix atm. With your med cost woes not sure if you're still subbed but thought I'd mention. They do some shitty edits, making Kato a first-timer (kinda) and removed some charas, but the Osaka aliens + Osaka team are awesome. Hopefully it'll cheer you up.

PS: Watch in Japanese. The Eng dub is like they got a bunch of asians to speak Engrish.

Herro came across your profile from your Himizu review.

I was snooping through your manga list, and you should *really* read Oyasumi Punpun. It has everything you like in manga - artwork is wonderful http://imgur.com/6pFzhc9, story is extremely depressing in a realistic way, and it's by the same author as Nijigahara Holograph and Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae; Punpun is widely considered his best work.

I usually don't go out of my way to recommend people stuff (I know it's pretty annoying for a stranger to tell you to invest a couple hours of your life into something, 'believe me, it's soooo good'), but given your list I just can't help but push this manga.
AironicallyHuman Jan 4, 6:29 PM
Thanks, I was hoping you'd be understanding given the whole two years thing. I never... dealt with my last dog as a puppy (/lazy arsehole), so having my sleep pattern adjusted and babysitting was a rather unwelcome surprise when already low. The lesson: never do I want a child. Ever.
My new dog doesn't read quite as much of a pain as your sister's but he'll cry pitifully if left in his cage. 2016 was just a shitty year: nan died at start of it over the course of 2-3 weeks, then my dog towards end. And the older I get, the more I seem able to understand how so many members fade from existence on MAL as years pass: loss of passion for everything I once held affection for. That could just be depression, mind you.

...Oh, and a belated happy xmas / new year, by the way. I now have a Windows Tablet can can type using my TV. Did you get anything useful, or just junk?

You paint a lovable picture of the family dog you had. I'd be worried about a dog getting its eyes scratched if it tried to referee a fight between two cats. Never owned a cat myself - my mom hates them - so I'd instead get Princess to go up the garden by saying "CATSSSSS!", and predictably she'd dart out. Eating specific underwear reads strangely perverted but, as my new dog shows, destroying things is fun for young dogs. He ate thru a Christmas decoration wire when I left him downstairs/likes ripping paper. I'm not sure if the sudden nature of your pets end was a good or a bad thing: in our case, Princess had always been finicky with food and started eating less and less. Still fine in herself. Before we knew it was a tumour, I stupidly told her off/threatened to hit her, thinking she was just seeking attention over her food. We took her backforth to vets over a number of weeks. Then, suddenly, after being left at vets, she seemed... drugged when she came back. We assumed they'd give her a sedative. Turns out she was bleeding internally and had a massive tumour that ruptured. Left a lot of regrets over what could have been done different.

...ANYWAY: good to know that, at worst, the author of Shingeki was just stalling with the non-titan arc and it does pick-up again, with the quest to reach Eren's basement from sodding ch1 FINALLY going somewhere. I glanced at a random chapter and saw that Erwin died, and Armin took over fully... or sumat. I'd actually like to know why those giant titans reside in the walls/how and all the rest. I'd basically given up on ever receiving answers. I don't know if you've seen it, btw, but the S2 anime trailer came out recently--looking forward to that Reiner vs. Eren MMA fight. Seeing the best of the manga before the human vs. human bollox should motivate me to get back into manga. Maybe.

The Count of Monte Cristo is definitely long-winded, with a lot of chapters that weren't required (the Italian gangster character backstory), and it was never explained how Edmond transitioned into a master swordsman/shooter. But I felt, reading it for the first time, it had aged wonderfully as far as exploring the rights and wrongs of vengeance, what true justice is and psychological suffering. I couldn't get past the slow, overly descriptive start of Les Mis but with Monte Cristo I couldn't put it down. My situation is unusual in the sense I saw a barebones, artsy version (Gankutsuou), then was able to bridge the gaps that left; such as the entire first 300 pages/prison part.
As for Game of Thrones: I think I did type to you about that, years ago: those last few books are nowhere near as good as what came before, but they are worth reading. Arrianne - one of the best characters - was totally cut in what the TV series butchered into the Sand Snake TV shite. And Jamie's character arc is waaay different: he's off to see Lady Stoneheart unwittingly via Brianne where books left of, having given up on Cersei.

On a related note: the overly depressing quotes on my profile are from a famous novel. A sort of semi-fictional suicide note in novel format, written before the author, Osamu Dazai, committed suicide. World famous and has had a fair few adaptations, including one done by Madhouse, with Death Note's art style: Aoi Bungaku. A collection of adaptations of the most famous of JP novels. /random

I think you should respect yourself for enduring with university failures. If it were me and I'd struggled with studying and ultimately had to go back home, I would've given up, mentally scarred and sure any other attempts would be meaningless. I get you were pushed by your parents but you found your own motivation in the end and are now on course to reach your goal. Must feel at least a little satisfying, boring or not. That was my problem during my school years, btw: I never knew what I wanted from life, or put better I never wanted anything. I was bad at memorisation, I didn't care about what was being taught and I just wanted to escape. Maybe I'm just a lazy sod.

It sounds almost like the plot of a 2chan love story like Train Man - your romance - but when it reads so sappy, it has to be true. I've only ever seen forum threads where depressed/lonely sods get laughed at or ignored, but I'm happy for you that reddit proved so life changing. I once made a thread on a random religious forum asking for someone to talk to and was told God would save me. He still hasn't. Kunt. About your 8hr phone call: I can't even imagine how a conversation could last that long without awkward, self conscious silences. You're either very smooth or just made for each other, as you suggest. BUT, as happy you are and I hope you remain, you should never put all your eggs in one baskets, as the saying goes. I can understand you cutting old weed smoking friends / anime losers outta your life but, if you become totally dependent and sumat goes amiss, the anxiety would be crushing. Just sayin'.

You weren't kidding that Mangastream don't have any manga. I use MangaHere, myself... or rather I use an app on my tablet, and that lets you pick from various manga reading websites. Tablets are a godsend for manga. Not that I read much anymore. The author of Happiness' best work is Aku Hana: goes from stupid to relatably traumatic. Happiness I stiill can't make my mind up on: already seems to have ran out of ideas and gone with a 1D villain and lots of sudden murder/death, tho I did like the Nao chapter.

Thar'll hafta do. Reply to what you want and ignore what you don't. Best way to deal with long msgs, I find. I kinda missed our exchanges as well, so if you want someone to type to every now and then, you know where my MAL page is. No worries if you're too busy or whatever.

PS: Do you watch Vikings? No doubt you do. You watched every Yank show it seemed, way back. Travis Fimmel is amazong. Fills a void Game of Thrones leaves.
AironicallyHuman Dec 18, 2016 11:09 AM
Sorry for not replying yet. Meant to when I updated my list back in November but we had a Westie puppy to replace our old dog - my mom needing sumat to fill the void - and that's left me with surprisingly limited time right when we started typing again. Puppies are a lot like babies/needy fuckers. And I've been going thru the worst bout of depression I've dealt with, which has left me unmotivated to do anything and made it hard for me to type/talk/stuff. My bad.

I will try to reply for real before xmas - an unwanted gift, tho I wager you'll be busy with your girlfriend - but, for now, since Gantz Osaka not on the net afaik, here's a teaser for another manga of Oku's that's getting an adaptation by a studio with money: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8vbrApdqwY

How old was your old dog/what breed, btw, and how did he pass away? It's hard to deal with losing a pet you've had for so many years. Esp when year started with my nan dying. OH WELL, shit happens. The worst is over now, I hope. ANYWAY: will get back to you soon with anime/manga talk. Hope it's still going good for you with your girlfriend and stuff.
AironicallyHuman Oct 23, 2016 6:40 PM
Thought it best not to respond on same day after so long / your two year warning, then cba to even update my list properly. First world problems. Hello again.

I still occasionally use this website, although I'm not quite sure as to why. Way past the point of caring about sharing and anime/manga loses its charm after the first... few 100 or so. Old habits die hard, I guess. But, out of polite interest, does Shingeki ever get semi-interesting again after the whole human internal warfare bollox? It started losing me after the Reiner fight, sad to say. Felt like the author was spinning his wheels to make more $$$$. And no-one important/toung dies. NARUTTOOOO

Books without pictures? Unless it's the Count of Monte Cristo or Game of Thrones, I doubt anything could entice me. And that required me watching the anime/TV show to be aware they might be of interest. I'd take reading many pages of text over working in a fast food joint, mind you. Fast-paced, sweaty, unrewarding work with people ready to be arsey over their orders/pressure. I think I'd prefer stacking shelves or working in a warehouse.

Fifth college? I do remember your A) lack of motivation/credits and - I tink - B) study woe but you'll have to educate me in how you could go through four before this. I'd have given up after the first. I know you say you don't know how it happened, btw, but srsly: how does a college dropout manage to hook up with a medical student in Europe? HOW!? Did the essays we exchange about anime/manga make you strangely seductive on MSN/whatever kids use these days? Got to be pretty serious if you're flying around to meet each other, even after losing your v-card. Congrats man. The fact you have something to drive you onwards and get thru college/not suicide is sumat to be happy about.

I share your feelings about the whole 'WHY OSAKA' Gantz: O situation. Maybe they just really wanted to add 'O' to the title. It was very draggy in the manga but maybe the plan in the anime is to condense it to focus on the badarse mechasuit vs. reviving/unkillable/transforming alien... thing. That I remember fondly...ish. But, yeah: I'd much rather see that arc where Kurono was trying to protect Tae and Izumi killed her. Or the Dinosaurs. Or the Buddha arc. Or anything else before Gantz went to shit, rly. I stopped reading once aliens invaded/Tae kidnapped and there were multiple Kuronos, btw. What a load of shite... oh, and the liveaction movies don't get any better: just much worse. Second one is an original story (since Gantz manga too much of a disaster) where that... guy that got run over with Kurono at very start/died during Buddha arc comes back as an alien and the vampires fight the Gantz team on a train and there are no alien battles. Fuck knows.

This reminds me: Ajin. My last recommendation before you sodded off, Tokyo Ghoul, was shite. Too shounen/shitty. Ajin is like the successor to Gantz in a few key ways: the black comedy writing in death-filled situations and that air of 'only something like a JP guy disguising himself as a black man could happen in Gantz' the series had. V1 of Ajin was wrote by different person, then artist took over writing and it became crazy. Really sexy inked art and a blast to read. I don't do the whole rec thing now, and I know you've lost interest in new stuff, but Happiness...

...how did you come to try Happines, btw? Nao having sex and killing raised my interest.

PS: Read from this page to understand why I'm suggesting Ajin, plz--http://mangafox.me/manga/ajin/v04/c019/14.html
PS2: If you can stomach some fluid CG far away from Gantz O.... https://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=777398
PS3: Farewell, until we type again. Good luck with life/European girl.
AironicallyHuman Oct 10, 2016 9:24 AM
Popped on to remind you about one of YT links for Boruto I think you missed/forgot about--10min movie extra, titled 'The Day Naruto Become Hokage'. https://myanimelist.net/anime/32365/Boruto__Naruto_the_Movie_-_Naruto_ga_Hokage_ni_Natta_Hi

I rated movie same as you/7/10 and the extra 8/10. Naruto suffering from the comical woe of being a father and managing to miss his big day, after 700 chapter. Oo YT in full: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4grWudT_nqo

Hope you got a kick out of seeing bearded Shikamaru and seeing his kid fearing mama Temari + the chunnin exam fight in particular. Some nice fanservice. Loved the end tag-team fight,typing of.

Will respond properly next time I update list. For now, I'll just say I'll let you know when Gantz O on net. I share your feelings over random arc choice since dinosaur arc was the last one to really entertain. At least it'll be a flashy way to say goodbye to series and ain't a liveaction shitfest.
AironicallyHuman Oct 7, 2016 7:28 PM
You just so happened to message me on my latest infrequent 'MAL update batch' login. Yay? Much of my long-winded passion gone now, you'll be glad to know.

Glad you got a girlfriend and focused on her rather than internet randoms and manga listing. Any sane male would/should. And good to know I timed my 'accept nothingness/despair, muhahaha' rambling perfectly! I take it you did the e-romance thing given she's in Europe?

It's been so long since we typed that the once unknown Shingeki lost my interest, as Gantz did when we still ping-pong'd. Only your #1 review remains. The lesson: never fall in love with a badly drawn manga.

Anyway, don't wanna respond properly yet; just a quickie. Mainly wanna share these Boruto vids in case you download full movie (I never finished manga, btw: finished story via Storm series game adaptation. Then, Boruto.):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yM6OBHJo6QE <-- Start of movie. The choreography once fight started proper made my Jap's eye cry.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eQpBuB3u38 <-- Movie extra, in full. Even Naruto gets worn down by marriage/kids.
Torrent: https://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=829576

Just in case you cba when bored. Nice way to end the saga/closure.
