It's from fan art for a game called Kantai Collection.

Ik was niet echt zeker met welke game ik had moeten beginnen met de Shin Megami Tensei serie, maar blijkbaar is het net zoals Pokémon/Dragon Quest, als je er één gespeeld hebt heb je ze allemaal gespeeld. Het verschil in de Persona sub-serie wat ik zo ver weet ligt in de scheiding tussen dungeon-crawling en het onderhouden van het sociale leven van de MC. Zo kan je kiezen om bijvoorbeeld het ene dagdeel tijd door te brengen met party members en daardoor het dungeon crawlen wat makkelijker maken en bv s'avonds te vissen/lezen/werken. De dagen vliegen dan om, heb al eens een game over gehad omdat ik te lang bezig was met dat socializen ipv de dungeons te doen, daar zit namelijk een time limit aan. :') De dungeon crawling is ook wel leuk, het voelt een beetje als Pokémon. Je hebt verschillende 'arcanas' oftewel types en je kan 2 verschillende arcanas combineren om 1 nieuwe te vormen. Bijvoorbeeld Pikachu + Pidgeot = Zapdos :p

Ik hoop dat Your Name ook in Pathé Groningen komt, het zou zeker vet zijn als hij uberhaupt hier in de Nederlandse bios wordt vertoond. Ik heb hem ook nog niet gezien en nog geen spoilers o.i.d. ervan gelezen. Wie weet als er genoeg mensen heen gaan komen er wel meer anime films hier. Ik weet nog dat ik vroeger de Pokémon films in de bios had gekeken, maar zo'n groot succes waren die ook weer niet. :p

Ik heb de trailer van Ghost in the Shell een tijd terug in de bios gezien, die ogen van Batou zagen er zo cartoony uit. XD Ik herkende wel een paar scenes vanuit de anime film maar ik heb Stand Alone Complex etc. niet gezien en waarschijnlijk hebben ze alles door elkaar heen gehaald. :p

Ik heb nog steeds geen Netflix, aangezien ik zo weinig live action series/films kijk. Als ik het wel doe koop ik ze meestal op dvd, hou er wel van om een collectie te hebben. Heb trouwens nog steeds niet het nieuwe seizoen van Game of Thrones gezien, ik loop 2 seizoenen achter. D: Had gehoord dat Ed Sheeran een cameo had gemaakt haha.

Medabots en Digimon, jij weet de goede shit. Ik keek vroeger ook Super Big. :') Het eerste seizoen van Digimon was best wel goed, de art viel alleen wat tegen (Tja, Toei) maar ik vond de designs van Digimon altijd wel vetter dan die van Pokémon. Tentomon/Kabuterimon for life. Ik had laatst nog Digimon World voor de PS1 gekocht, leuke nostalgische jRPG. Alleen zitten er een aantal bugs in in beiden de NTSC en PAL versies waardoor de game soms gewoon onspeelbaar wordt. Gelukkig ben ik die in mijn playthrough niet tegengekomen. :D

De subbed versie van Medabot kijkt wel lekker weg, de humor zou niet passen op de Engelse/Nederlandse buis. :p Het is een beetje Robattle-of-the-week nu maar er komen aan het eind nog een aantal story arcs had ik begrepen.

Ik heb laatst trouwens Lupin III The Castle of Cagliostro gekeken. Wat een geweldige film was dat zeg. Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar. De eerste helft van de eerste Lupin serie viel mij nogal tegen, maar de 2e helft bracht het voor mij terug naar een hoger niveau. Waarschijnlijk omdat Hayao Miyazaki daarin een bijdrage had geleverd.

Zo heb je weer wat te lezen. xD

Uhu, toen ik nog op school zat kon ik nog lurken. Tijdens mijn werk kan ik dat beter niet doen. :P En de vrije tijd die ik heb besteed ik liever ergens anders aan. Zoals Persona 4 voor de PS2. :p

Ik zag dat Therockbro het in de club comments nog had over een release van een animefilm die hier in november in NL te zien is in Pathé (Your Name). Ben er wel benieuwd en ga er misschien wel heen. Live-action films zoals Ghost in the Shell hoef ik niet te zien. xD De Death Note film is schijnbaar ook niet zo'n succes geweest. Niet zo'n enorme verrassing. De creativiteit is ver te zoeken in Hollywood. >.> (Emoji movie *kots*)

Ik kijk momenteel Medabots, heb het vroeger nooit echt gevolgd op TV, alleen af en toe een aflevering gezien.

Veel plezier met je Aria rewatch. :3 Vraag gerust als je nog een keer wat zoekt.

Yooo o/ Ik check eigenlijk alleen nog maar voor de wekelijkse song of the week in de holland club en soms vergeet ik ook gewoon te voten. x) en wanneer ik een anime/manga heb afgemaakt update ik dat, maar niet echt per episode/chapter.

Ik heb ep1 van EnterTheBlog geupload naar mega, ik stuur je de link via PM. Was wel even zoeken hoe ik die URL weer moest krijgen. :p

Hisashiburi~ :3

Hm, ik download bijna nooit anime, en als ik dat al doe dan verwijder ik hem erna meteen weer. HDDs groeien niet aan bomen xD
Dus ik heb die helaas niet op mijn pc staan. Maar kan het kloppen dat dat een 480p versie is? Daar lijkt het tenminste op als ik het zo zie.
TechnoforeverRIP Jun 28, 2017 10:06 AM
I like the early 90s, but not so much the late 90s. The late 90s in my opinion was when anime started to collapse. This was when anime becomes very crappy and animation styles took a downturn. That was when I stopped watching new anime because I was so dissapointed. Also, this was also when the modern anime culture formed which is something I don't like. Moe was also formed. So, I really hate late 90s stuff. I do like early 90s anime though. In fact the last year of good anime was 1996.
TechnoforeverRIP Jun 26, 2017 1:17 PM
So you like late 90's anime?
TechnoforeverRIP Jun 7, 2017 9:41 PM
The reason I can remember this well is because I have photographic memory. Also, the reason why I know I was watching anime and knowing it was Japanese anime was due to my parents reminding me that what I'm watching was anime and my brother. Most people in east Asia can recognize anime immediately unlike in Europe and the West. North Korea is the only exception. I forgot to mention, before Southern Vietnam became a communist country, anime was widely broadcasted and manga was popular. This was during the 60s and 70s. Anime and manga has been around in South Vietnam since the 1950s so its definitely isn't unusual there This is why my anime fandom was already pretty solid as a child. In fact, I remember seeing an anime picture as a 3 year old.

On occasion, I would watch anime made today like Macross Frontier or the new Ghost in the Shell series, but I don't feel the magic like before. It's probably because the new art style is too weird for me. The theme for modern anime is different as well. No more unlimited sci-fi action and mecha like the 80's. I love cyberpunk, mecha, and sci fi the most. Also, I don't have put effort into anime today like before. No more going home after school to wait for my favorite anime at the right time or waking up early for it. Also, no more sneaking to TV middle of the night to watch adult like anime. Today, all I need is an iphone and an internet. Anime was really something you have to earn and fight for before. That's one thing I like about 80s-90s.

You can comment all you want, we Vietnamese aren't too strict about people talking crap about our country. In fact, we insult our own country at times too. You'll be surprised at Vietnamese communities. Also, we would know if its intentional, we aren't like the Japanese or the Chinese, we are much more chill. In fact the boat people Vietnamese in America insults everything about Vietnam and forgets about their country, they can get pretty annoying. They keep wanting to topple the government even though it is getting better by the year and its stable. Personally, I wouldn't get too mad unless its serious insults. I do however, find some of the insults from the extreme anti-communist quite ridiculous, even as a person who likes democracy.

Yeah, what you described for North Korea sounds like Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge regime. In fact during the late 70s, Cambodia was the best friend of North Korea. There are also rumors that North Korean learned some of the cruel execution and torture techniques from the Khmer Rouge and apply it to their camps. If you are curious, look up the Khmer Rouge and their atrocities. It's a bit worse than North Korea. Cambodia in the late 70s was the world's most terrible and evil place. Even animals are killed for fun there in cruel ways. In fact that was how child soldiers are trained. North Korea does this a lot too with animals btw, they probably torture and killed their dogs after those dogs eat the victims alive. The Khmer Rouge also committed massacres in Vietnam border villages such as Ba Chuc where people are killed without a shot. The massacres pisses the Vietnamese soo much that they invaded Cambodia and overthrew the Khmer Rouge and replace it with a Soviet backed government which is in reality very peaceful and nice. Not a lot of oppression during the aftermath. In fact the Vietnamese were helping the Cambodians rebuild their country. Like North Korea, KR Cambodia was backed by China, so after we overthrew the KR, the Chinese attacked us from the North. Fortunately we kicked them out, this war lasted from 1979-1990. But, only people in the North are affected by the war with China. South Vietnam was not affected at all, we do occasionally have indigenous resistance groups but they are too small to cause problems. Not only Vietnam was attacked by China, but most Western countries condemn Vietnam for their invasion of Cambodia which was stupid and they also put up an embargo just for the invasion. This embargo made Vietnam very poor. But we didn't care we just kept Cambodia until it was positive that the KR won't come back again. Without that Vietnamese invasion, Cambodia would not exist today. So Vietnam is a hero.

This is why I feel South Korea should learn from Vietnam and do the same. I feel that South Korea should invade North Korea no matter what and not wait too long. The longer the wait the more dangerous and the more people die and torture. I know for sure China will attack, but they aren't unstoppable as many people think. Vietnam has beat them in 1979-1990 without any foreign assistance besides buying Eastern Bloc arms. The Chinese were humiliated in this war. Their large army is not well trained and experienced. The North Korean army shouldn't be a problem, since in my experience, countries that tends to torture and kill people for fun are usually the weakest and most cowardly. The Khmer Rouge were running away and retreating very quickly as soon as the Vietnamese started to invade. I feel North Koreans would probably do the same. Also, Vietnamese hates China and I personally hate their government for supporting regimes like North Korea and the Khmer Rouge.

If you want to learn about the Khmer Rouge there is google, and there is the film called "Killing Fields" and there is a movie about the Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia which I don't think you can understand since its all in Vietnamese.

Sorry for the rambling, its just that North Korea makes me a bit mad just like when I heard about the Khmer Rouge from family friends who were officers during the Cambodian invasion and occupation. So I have really strong feelings for this issue.

About Japan, Vietnam is good friends with them and love them for the aid money they send and the anime and manga they exported to us. However, we feel that they are hard to understand since the culture difference is too big even though we are both East Asians. Even I tend to find them odd. I can guarantee that Viets and Japanese can easily get into arguments due to the huge cultural difference. For example, we never understand why the Japanese work too much with little breaks or why they see women as inferior. Also their education system is too hard to bear.

True, I have a lot of attachments to anime when it comes to animation. In fact, I chose anime over Disney as a kid because anime was prettier in my opinion. Now, it is the only type of animation I would watch since I was exposed to it at a really young age. I tend to see the people who see Naruto when they were young as babies, since they are really young imo. Also, they don't have to work as hard for anime like us older gen fans. Just getting to see anime on TV is a big excitement already. Also, once that episode is done its done, there's no coming back to that episode. Unless you buy the tapes for it of course, but it can be expensive back then. I'm aware that today's anime is for a new demographics. It used to be mostly sci-fi and some romance. I remember enjoying cyberpunk, mecha, and spaceship battles. I don't see that anymore these days. Soo sad. I'm a big sci-fi fan. Also, animation was soo beautiful back then.

The future is not how I thought it was back when I was young. I used to think in 2017, we'll be having cyborgs walking in the streets and cars would look futuristic. I thought it would be like Bubblegum Crisis in a way, but sadly its not. I also used to think we'll have the first colony on the moon by this year. I don't know, but technology is going in odd directions.

Don't worry, English isn't my first language either. I don't even speak it at home and with many friends and family. I wasn't a decent English speaker until I became a teenager. So I can understand and I do get incoherent at times too. In fact my English has a bit of Vietnamese accent still.

I tend to write detailed answers since I have photographic memory and big knowledge on certain things. This means that once I remember something I don't forget it unless its something little. So my knowledge is quite big than usual. Not bragging.

BannoBunka_snork Jun 7, 2017 1:33 PM
hehe, pretty much my thoughts.

But well, the drop in art/animation quality is regrettable, but since I expected it to be so, It did not hit me too hard. I mean, they had to churn out an episode each week, probably lower budget, too. And had the quality stayed the same, then I would have heard of the franchise much sooner, MUCH more, I assume.

It reminded me how I liked really much to read "crime stories" that revolved not so much about the crime in question, but were more a vehicle to show a society, a part of society, more on the slice of life side than on the "whodunit" side. I abandoned that only because it was so difficult to find them back then (pre-internet).

For the TV series, I watched two episodes so far and do not totally dislike it. Plus it trolled me really nicely on its first episode, where for a moment I thought "oh noes, now it gets a darn fanservice/ ecchi comedy now? Why? Bouncing boobs already with just few minutes in?"
I can appreciate being trolled that way.
Now maybe I wait a while before I continue, just so that I won't miss the OVA's art that much ...

so long - snork

Longer episodic anime with good ending is typical of anime when I was a child. Its pretty common back then up until the late 90s. I don't know about anime now since I stopped following latest anime after '96. That was when anime took a huge downfall. In fact, almost every anime I watch on broadcasted TV was like that back then. I remember those shows coming on at 16:00 on normal days and on Saturday mornings and nights. Also, there is anime in early mornings too which started at like 6:00 in the morning. The 80s-mid 90s were definitely the golden age of anime. I'm quite use to long episodic anime since I grew up on them.

Gundam in my opinion is more like real world politics and battles in a way. So I can understand the poor endings since there is rarely a good ending in real life wars. In fact, Tomino was trying to replicate WWII mecha style, that's what he said in one interview. The main message in Gundam is war is bad. So its not too focused on good story like Macross. The main focus is a realistic war story.

What I said about Vietnam was during the 80's, which was definitely bad for most people since Vietnam was following the ways of USSR at the time. Even with all of this censorship, poverty, and strictness, you can still be rich which makes Vietnam the 2nd nicest communist country after Yugoslavia. You just have to have a few connections with a few officials and do some unusual gold business. That's why my family got by well and why some of my family members spent shorter time in reeducation camp. Its also why some family members got a pass on having manga and anime. Luckily for us, we don't have to come to America the way of the boat people which is extremely deadly. In the late 70s-80s, Vietnam is more relaxed compare to their communist counterparts. The neighboring country of Cambodia has the Khmer Rouge, which killed 20% of their own people without firing a gun. Another neighbor in Laos is trying to wipe out the Hmong population. Then you got North Korea which is much worse than North Korea today, they are like Khmer Rouge. Also, China, which killed many. So at least Vietnam government doesn't go on a large scale killing spree like most communist countries. But still, plenty of people end up in jail, but not as many as other communist countries. Also the jail more nicer than North Korea but its still pretty bad. At least, in Vietnam, if you get executed, its a shot in the the head, painless death. In North Korea, if you get executed, its a slow death that involves using a sharp leaf to slit throat and oh in North Korea, it takes 3 days to behead a dissident in public. So in the 80s, many Vietnamese hat their government at the same time felt a little lucky that Vietnam isn't as cruel as Cambodia and North Korea. Also, 80s Vietnam allowed some religious freedom, this is not common with communist countries too. Most communist countries banned all forms of religion, only atheism is allowed. Also, there's no heavy secret police crackdowns like many communist countries. All in all Vietnam is pretty bad at the time, but at least you don't have to worry about being killed for no reason. But you still have the economic problems and famine to worry about.

Ok, that was Vietnam when I was little. Today, Vietnam is much much different in a good way. Vietnam doesn't do wide-scale anime and manga ban like before. In fact many anime and manga are allowed. Anime is getting popular there and even hentai is becoming legal for the first time recently. There's even an anime cafe in Vietnam today with anime conventions too. It is soo popular that people are beginning to draw anime with Vietnamese culture in it. So today, anime and manga is doing good there. A correction, it wasn't a channel that was banned, I think it was one anime that was banned, for some odd reason that I don't know of. But the majority of anime aren't banned there like in the past. So big improvement, Vietnam is now closer to the ways of the Western world. Everything is ok in terms of freedoms there as long as you don't make fun of officials (which gets you a big fine) or blogging negatively about the government ( this leads to 5 years in jail). Also, never say crap about Ho Chi Minh. I don't know the punishment but its possibly prison. Basically basic human rights are ok, but political freedom still doesn't exist. The punishment is much lighter than in the past. I still wouldn't want to live there because of the high corruption and poverty rates.

I think Saudi Arabia is much worse than Vietnam, even worse than 80s Vietnam. For one, Saudi Arabia has no women rights. Vietnam sees women as equally as men. So gender was never an issue in Vietnam even in ancient times. Vietnam is a matriarchal society before and is egalitarian during communist era. Vietnam right now has religious freedom (not 100% since officials still observed catholic masses), Saudis will have Christians killed. Also, Vietnam doesn't executed a lot of people like the Saudis. In fact, if the Vietnamese knew about the Saudis, they would see them as barbaric and strict. Also, about women rights, Vietnam sees Japan gender discrimination as deeply concerning. This is one thing many Vietnamese hate about Japan. This is also the trait of our enemy country China.

Just to let you know, Vietnam was once a democratic country before 1975, it was as democratic as modern day Japan and it was also almost as rich as Japan too. It was called South Vietnam back then. That's why many Vietnamese are pissed off at the government until today.

As for anime clubs, yes there were anime clubs back when I was a kid, but it wasn't as widespread as today. The clubs were only known in big cities in the US. Even in those clubs, there weren't as many participants as today. There was also an anime convention too, but my parents wouldn't take me to one at the time. I only heard about these clubs through the older students in my school at the time, mostly 8th graders. I was only a 2nd grader at the time. Another fact is that I was living in a 25,000 people city at the time, the clubs are in big cities but it would take an hour to get there. Because I have busy parents, I sadly never had the chance to participate in these clubs directly. Also, the clubs are consisted of mostly high school and college students, I would be too young to be in there. Although they don't mind, but it would look weird with one small child and a group of high schoolers and adults. So basically, I just joined in with a group of much older students at school to talk about anime. And yes, it was a small group. Anime was really new in America at the time, so there definitely isn't a strong fanbase back then like today. Most people in the US wouldn't know what anime is at the time. However, my parents kinda knew, since my older brother had illegal copies of them back in Vietnam and those were not subbed or dubbed obviously. Classmates my age at the time would be too oblivious to anime and manga so I never really talked to them much. Anime that were brought up in clubs back then would be Bubblegum Crisis, Macross, Appleseed, Gunbuster, Urusei Yatsura, and Gall Force. I remember my parents renting these tapes for me. There weren't many anime broadcasted at the time in US channels. However, I can watch anime using French channels. My French was definitely better than today, lol. The French channels have channels that is only dedicated to anime at the time, so I got to see a few. I have been an anime fan since I was 5 so I knew anime and experienced it too well. Not to mention I played anime games even before that. I feel bad for you for learning about anime in 2013, since real anime was dead for a while by then. You can use my list to find good anime.


By the way, VHS and LDs are tough and strong. Most of my tapes have been around since I was a child and its still functioning well as it was brand new. MY VHS player is extremely old and its still working well. I don't even clean them for years, that's how strong they are. Right now, they are all in a box since I'm currently doing Pharmacy school to get a better job. Pretty soon, we will have holographic TV and even flat screen TV will be outdated. Our iphones will be outdated too since it will be replaced with internet glasses. The 80s will be seen as ancient time and I will be seen as some old guy. Funny how things turn as time goes by, I used to make fun of the 70s and my parents era the 50s a lot. I used to be the one who was into everything new and be hateful towards things before the 80s. Now, I'm becoming like my parents back then, odd.

I'm not sure about 80s artists coming together to make cel animation again. I know that many of them has died and some dying. So you cannot rely on them, since they will very sadly be extinct by the next decade or so. This makes me sad. It is up to the children who were living at the time and pass it on to the next generation. This is mainly why I'm drawing 80's anime, to bring it alive again. My future goal is to make a manga using 80s style and to make cel animation. You have to pass on tradition to the next generation otherwise that tradition will be extinct. The talented people of the 80's cannot live long, so it is up to us 80s kids to continue the tradition and to pass it on. We are an endangered species, I never thought this would happen before. If the 80's is dead, rebuild it with all your efforts, don't wish time to go back, it never will. That's how I see it. The same goes for music too.

There should be plenty of 80s anime art books on ebay. Thats where I got them


TechnoforeverRIP May 29, 2017 4:52 PM
Gundam ZZ isn't too bad like Gundam fans say. Its alright at first however it gets really good in later episodes. I think it was after 20. Gundam ZZ just have a slow start that's all. Personally, I think the series and ova for Gundam is good, especially the UC timeline. Just ignore the extra stories though. Also, Victory Gundam is just rediculous.

I remember Robotech pretty well when it was broadcasted. It was good at the time since I knew very little about anime back then. I only picked up on Macross when early internet begin and from various stores in Chinatown.

Just to let you know, Hanoi Vietnam means my heritage not where I'm living right now (I'm French Vietnamese). In fact, if I was in Vietnam during the time Robotech broadcasted, it would've not been allowed to enter the country since its anti-revolutionary material. In fact, any anime was anti-revolutionary material and it was illegal to own any anime at the time (no you won't be executed, but you go to jail). The only movies and shows that were allowed to enter Vietnam back then was from the USSR, Eastern Bloc, and locally made shows/movies about communism. Also, there was only one or two channels on TV, both of which is all propaganda crap, kinda like TV in North Korea today. Poverty and inflation was really high back then due to extra wars with China and the occupation of Cambodia. Even with the harsh communist dictatorship going on, a few people can still get anime and manga from the black market and through bribing. In fact, I remember seeing my relative's Japanese game collections at the time, one of them is Red Photon Zillion with a Sega system included. These things are as illegal as cocaine in Western countries.

This is a long time ago, Vietnam is obviously much more freer today and it is much more successful thanks to the reforms in the late 80s and the fall of the USSR. So starting in the early 1990s, Vietnam started to have dubbed and subbed anime just like the US. Anime was even broadcasted too. Although the censorship and ban was worse than US, but at least not too bad like 80s. I've been living in the US for a long long time so shipping isn't a problem. I do know that shipping is a big hassle in Vietnam, since customs there are ridiculously harsh and certain anime and manga are on their black list. They just ban an entire anime channel recently because it contains, anti-communist elements. Anime is controlled by the Ministry of Public Security, so some anime are allowed and some are not unlike in US and Europe. These people are paranoid about any references to democracy.

Oh, I still do collect VHS and LDs, mostly VHS since the LD machine was long gone. These VHS brings me back to my childhood. Not only do I have VHS tapes, I also have cassette tapes, Vinyls, and cassette players for music. A lot of these has been with me since I was a child. Looking back, I'm amazed how time goes by so fast. It feels like the 80s was yesterday and now we are in the future. Sometimes, I wish the 80s gets revived somehow. Those times were better as I remembered. I miss talking about the latest anime or manga to people and have conversation about how awesome they are.

I use a few online tutorials, as I have only started drawing 5 years ago. BTW, I started out just like you. I use to have no idea to draw anything besides bad stick figures. No one expects me to know how to draw. In fact, I failed every art class I took in my life, not only that I hated art class more than anything. What I did is basically read online tutorials, constant practice, and have strong dedication. The main thing is, I didn't give up and keep going. I didn't take any classes at all. I taught myself. In fact, I'm still trying to improve today. Hopefully major improvements come after 4 more years when I have more time and money. Right now, I'm using anime and manga art books from the 80s to practice. I also use anime magazines from the 1980s.

There is a story about my art journey on my deviantart and also, see my first attempt at drawing anime. That crappy drawing took me 5 hours back then, seriously I was that bad before lol.

TechnoforeverRIP May 28, 2017 11:12 AM
I've seen every Gundam series up until Victory Gundam. Its good if you're into real life war stories otherwise its a bit dull and complex. Robotech and Macross are two completely different anime. There is no similarities between the two storylines. Robotech is just a bunch of random footages from several different anime mixed together to form a story. This is why I think Robotech is a big failure in my opinion since if you notice, the mixing will not make any sense since scenes are changed too frequently. They even failed with the Minmay ending. I hate Robotech with a passion, Harmony Gold ruined my childhood with utter crap stories. In my opinion Robotech is like a really bad crossover fanfic turned into an anime.

My suggestion is to watch Macross and all the other anime that made up Robotech seperately. Look at them as different anime since in the real Japanese version, which I have seen them all, have no connections to one another. They all have different writers and manga artists. They are all different universes. There is no footage of Orguss in Robotech btw. Robotech is basically Southern Cross, Mospeada, Macross, and Megazone 23 in the movie version. Now if you are into Robotech Sentinels, the entire anime is made from scratch.

Out of all of the anime that made up Robotech, I suggest following the Macross saga. The other ones aren't as good and deep. The Macross Saga is a complex universe with lots of interesting things. In fact a lot more interesting than that Robotech BS. Also, the Macross saga is authentic. I forgot to say after Flashback 2012 check out Macross:DYRL, its pretty good even though its a spinoff of the series and its not canon.

I only download certain anime if its not available on stream since I don't like too much gb on my computer. Besides watching anime online I also watch anime on VHS and Laserdisc. In fact I like watching anime on VHS and Laserdisc more than online since it has better experience. Also its how I used to watch anime before modern internet existed. Nothing beats watching anime on an 80s TV set like in the 80s. I also read physical copies of manga too and using online only when the series have too much volumes or when its no longer available. I like old school way of watching anime better. Also, back when I was little, anime was in English or French dubs, even subs don't exist until a bit later. For obvious reasons Vietnamese language my native language is not available in anime or manga until today.

As for Stop!! Hibari Kun, I watched raw after 8 episodes, since I don't speak or understand any Japanese, I can understand a little bit through body languages and tone of voice. I speak English, Vietnamese, and some French.

I already posted parts of my Macross fanfic online on deviantart. I'm done with the introduction and Chapter 1, those are posted already. However, I would not recommend reading them until you finish the Macross series and Flashback 2012. Also, you need to understand the ending and Minmay really well too before reading since this fanfic is immediately after Flashback 2012. Not to mention, I try to make it fit into Macross canon as possible. Not only did I post my fanfic, I also posted some promotional drawings for my fanfic too. The profile picture I'm using right now is a drawing I did for my fanfic.

Once I'm done with this fanfic, I'm planning on making a manga out of it too. But you won't see any parts of the manga until 4 more years. I need to improve my drawing skills and improve my life first by finish pharmacy school.

All of my drawings are here if you want to see them including some Macross ones: http://sailorsniper.deviantart.com/
and please dont read the fanfic until you finish Macross and FB 2012.

Yeah, I agree with you on that I've found a lot of good music through AMV's and also Gaming edits CS:GO and CoD, if it weren't for edits on Youtube I probably wouldn't of found most of the music I listen to today :P

Thanks I appreciate it, And yeah I had a old channel in which was mainly CS:GO/CoD but I didn't think my old subs would want to see a AMV in their feed so I decided to make a new one, And yeah right now I'll probably just make AMVs to practice on and to learn Sony Vegas better and not upload publicly till I'm happy with it and look for people that wouldn't mind giving Constructive Criticism to help me improve, And yeah Photoshop can require a lot of patience if you're working on something big or detailed, I mostly just use it to resize images or to make stuff for MAL or YT so I don't put much effort into that kind of stuff ^^
