Read your Nichijou review. Been a long time since I've watched that. Forgot why I thought it was so funny to me in many moments, but anyways, it's such a shame that you didn't like it, but that's fine. It's nice to hear about what people disliked about things that I like while trying to understand about how they feel.

Though I do want to point something out. You said that the fans of the show are like bronies and will attack anyone who doesn't worship it. Are you serious? I've never seen anyone do the sort of thing before (though I've never went to 4chan). That's pretty bad.

Also, you've said that many of the Japanese didn't like it. I've heard that many didn't even watch it or buy the DVD since it was during the time of the giant earthquake they've had over there. Rather surprising.

I'm not too up to speed with Metal Gear as a series given how convoluted the chronology is.

As far as the PS4 situation goes, there's a LOT of great games to be played - Persona 5, Nioh, Bloodborne, the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD remaster (they just came out with a remaster for XII as well), the list goes on and on. If you have PS Plus like I do, the free games you can get are pretty interesting. Last month, they had all 5 episodes of Life is Strange up for download. This month, it's Until Dawn.

Ayy LN, guess who's finally giving Persona 5 a rundown?

Whats your reasoning for why you think the 2003 FMA is better than Brotherhood?

Man, can you help me out? I remember seeing some old review of yours on some weird ass series. I don't remember many details, but there were, like, scientists who developed different beverages, and in order to decide which one is better, they turned the beverages into people and made them fight each other. Or something like that. What was this series called?

Eh, I don't have that much outrage built up toward the 2017 Berserk adaptation. There's no way a terrible adaptation can ruin Berserk, because Berserk is already shit tbh.

I really need to update my own Berserk review.

Did you loathe Holden Caulfield or just hated that the plot just ended without any closure? Saw that you gave it 1/5. Wrinkle in Time 2/5 nice though. First few chapters are great and then it goes into Sci-Fi junk.

Reading what? Also, did you add me on PSN yet? @phs_togusa

I love you.

I've been searching for some style to install to my anime list. I know CSS, but I'm too damn lazy to do it all myself. And I found a "Spice and Wolf" style! It's so adorable! ^_^

Hey, how do you feel about the Monster manga vs anime? Which should I check out first and if i read/watch it first is it worth my time to do the other later on?
phs_togusa Jun 26, 9:05 PM
Funny that you mentioned the Syrian civil war... (do note that while I detest Bashar al-Assad and Erdogan, they're better than having pure anarchy as a gateway to ISIL)





Idk man, I haven't been getting any joy out of anime as of late. Outside of rewatching classics like Golden Boy and JoJo, I've been losing my patience for a LOT of the shit I see.

Oh I've never heard of that :o how goes it?

I'm always glad to talk geopolitics my guy! I have a whole meme folder dedicated specifically for that subject. Israel as a country definitely is a sore spot for me. I'm not quick to support them, much to the chagrin of my Jewish friends. You mean to tell me that you have a right to dislocate hundreds of thousands of innocent people JUST because your people lived in that general region like 5,000 years ago? Fuck outta here with that bullshit. If that's the case, then anyone living in what is now Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir, Jammu, Ladakh, the Kashmir Valley, the Khyber Pakhtunwala, the FATA, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, and Haryana need to get the fuck out because all that land belongs to us Punjabis! Also a major sore spot for me is how Israel actively encourages Jewish people all over the globe to renounce their birth country's citizenship so that they can become Israelis. Haven't we learned from the dissolution of Yugoslavia that pan-ANYTHING never ends well? More to the point though, their adamant refusal to abide by the borders established at the end of the Six Day War in the 1960s does absolutely nothing to help their image. Also not helping their case is how they basically enact the second coming of apartheid by separating the Arab population from the Israeli side.

Given this though, I sure as hell don't support the Palestinians on the matter either. I believe everyone has the right to self-determination, but the whole situation in that part of the world is so fucked up to the point where both parties are guilty as sin. On the one hand, you have a Zionist agenda that's dedicated to perpetuating war after war for the sake of creating "Greater Israel" by using the USA as their hired muscle erstwhile perpetuating apartheid within their domain. On the other hand, you have a disenfranchised people that have become terrified or apathetic to the situation that they live in to the point where they turn a blind eye to extremists and terrorists who go to ridiculous lengths to target Israel erstwhile throwing countless innocent civilians under the bus.

Everyone involved with the Israeli government, Hamas, et al need to be captured, detained, and tried for war crimes in an international court.

hmmm yeah that's a possibility :O Wouldn't put it past him haha :D
