I am doing alright, not a lot is going on as people are pretty busy atm. Feel free to drop in again when you are free, though ;)

Hey Tommy, how's it going?

Merry Christmas.

Hey there, thanks for the kind words!

Maybe Sound! Euphonium? And perhaps Kekkai Sensen as well. I fear if I wrote a Fate review the community would eat me alive. Surprised they didn't do moreso with the Dungeon one!

PS: Nice taste ;)

I read that Shirobako's second season most likely won't come up because PA Works never do sequels or something. It is a very sad information

I think they are going well. I passed the proficiency exam -YAY!!!!- and now I will change my department to Philosophy. What about yours? And what happened to your novel?

Visually it's great, the animation is solid and they made the backgrounds look like a three-dimensional space. It's like Coppelion if the character designs didn't look like total garbage.

The character writing for Kumiko is pretty unimpeachable, I think, and for me drama is pretty much synonymous with good character writing, so I don't buy that the show doesn't have any drama or stakes.

It actually makes good points about the meaning of commitment. If people accuse it of "yuri-bait" I'd say it's probably just because they overplay some of the moments between Kumiko and Reina. All the big scenes between them are heavily stylized anyway.

Overall, I think it's a very good show, and anyone who didn't like the first three episodes based on a lack of stakes should at least acknowledge that the first three episodes are about the characters trying to decide if they're mature enough to accept stakes in their lives.

Yeah it has been a while Tommy.

Well, I remember the first days I saw Shirobako's MAL score. I thought that it would not be a good serie to watch so I omited it from my plan to watch list. But when it ended, its score shocked me a lot like Shinsekai Yori did. I was full of relish and joy while I was watching that. It was -somewhat- realistic :D I mean, it has cute girls doing cute things stuff as well but it did not lower my joy that much! I really do wish a second season. For instance, a second season about the seiyuu girl?

Well it's difficult to pick the best girl in the cast, they were all good, but if I had to pick one it would be Yumi. She was just the kind of character that I like (not to mention glasses make me week at the knees) and was an overall very nice additional character to the cast. Her specific highlight being the trouble she went through being the character designer in the second half, which I sympathized with enormously.

>So glad you enjoyed it though <33 Always feels good to see people watch someone that we all overlooked. One of my favourites last/this(?) year.

I understand the sentiment. This is why I am always recommending stuff. :D

>And no, only accepting bad shows 3:<
>Joking. Since I did go on about Shirobako I will go download it straight away and start it soon. I've been meaning to watch Ie Naki Ko, let alone more Dezaki.

That's alright. I felt that everyone else in the club would give you something bad and horrible to watch. So I thought may as well be nice. Besides I don't try to encourage people to watch bad anime. However, there is a reason why I recommended "Ie Naki Ko" specifically, with this in mind. You will probably figure out why when you start it.

Thankyou for the Shirobako recommendation.

Now, because you gave me a good rec. I'll be nice and give you a good recommendation (that has an additional lethal dose of torture added in, just for good measure and to make up for that masochistic side you seem to desire).

Ie Naki Ko

I sure hope so. Well, from what I've seen and read about the UK, I don't think our countries are all that different. (do not expect to see people wearing wooden shoes or windmills with tulips fields all around). The only other countries I've been to are Germany, Spain, France, Luxembourg and Belgium.

I feel honored! Since you like Ziggy a lot I would stick with his early '70s work for now. I think you would like Aladdin Sane, Hunky Dory and Diamond Dogs a lot. They're all great concept albums and contain some of his best material. While Aladdin Sane is my favorite of the three, I think Hunky Dory is the most accessible one for you.

No problem, and that's really good to hear! Thanks a lot, but I'm not quite sure about my exams though since I feel as if I ruined German and economics, but I'll see. My dad will rent a villa somewhere in the Netherlands. We won't go outside of the country this year because of family issues. I see. Good luck with your remaining weeks at college.

That's awesome! He's one of my favorite artists. I love those songs, especially Five Years. Have you listened to any other albums besides "The Rise And Fall Of...."?
killmeee May 31, 2015 10:41 PM
Ohh I see. Hope things get better for you. I am actually doing much better than before. I have four months of summer break ahead of me, since I just finished my final exams. I don't have any more troubles or whatsoever on my head and can just focus on the stuff I enjoy doing the most.

I saw The Dear Hunter play live last week! Besides that, I've been listening to mostly Japanese Indie Rock, and the last Arch Enemy album. Oh, I've been working a lot lately, so I've just been listening to Bright Eyes at work a lot... when I can. Here are some artists I've been listening to:

Yoshida Youhei Group
Koochewsen (I also wrote about this band)
TK from Rin Toshite Shigure

What about you?
