Hello! Glad to know you are still around man!

I see, thats lovely to hear. Im glad you liked it that much. I should try it sometime but ufff, lazy. Particulary with stuff as long as that.
I'll try it sometime tho. Thats for sure.

I know I know. I wanna play so much more stuff but sooo busy. Uff, its a pain. A real pain.

Oh wow! Thats fantastic. Damn man, thats something I did not expect. And yes, I been there. Its a lovely place. I think you are gonna love it. I loved staying in the Andes. Lovely place. Uff, tell me how preps are going.

I don't usually do clubs, but you know, I've ALWAYS thought, "Man, I should really start a cicada club, but I doubt anybody would join it."
I'll join under the condition you make me admin. That way I can overcompensate my feelings of inadequacy by power tripping with imagined cyber-relevance and lording over people on the internet where I can't get my ass kicked for being a douchebag.

It's not off the table. Only reason I checked back in here was I was depressed again.
Gee. Aren't I just a ray of fucking sunshine?
Like a self help booklet written by Tim Burton.
Foreword by Denis Leary.
I'd actually given up on MAL; you and Skadi had been gone so long last time I checked I didn't think you'd return. I feel stupid, seeing I could have been basking in your Bobness months ago.
I was in daily communication with somebody who was keeping me afloat, but she decided to jump on the Abandonment Band Wagon that seems to be in vogue the last couple years. I would have been more patient waiting for her to fit me in, except I'd just sent her a gift, and the fact she couldn't even be bothered to send a terse "thank you" in a week set me off.
So now I have to transfer that relationship onto you.
Now send me selfies and song clips and let me bathe you.

(Yeah, now that you're a legal adult, it's not as funny... but hopefully just as disturbing)

Yes, I got four or five PMs, so maybe they fixed PMs when they renovated MAL. I actually thought, "hm, either they fixed PMs, or he's been actually sending me a quote a day for several months, and they're all getting eaten."
Explains why Skadi is absent again, though. If they fixed PMs, she's getting twenty a day asking what her avatar is from.
Strange nobody asks me that. :D
It's such a great show!

"Not "dark" as in the dark of your basement, where you're currently dwelling you handicapped Aborigine fuck."
I laughed my ass off at that entire segment.
No matter how down in the dumps I am, your verbal abuse always lifts me up.
The fuck?!
And that was close, except you're not stupid or passive aggressive enough to pass as an average working white American. I suggest spending more time in the MAL forums to better understand the common mindset. :P
I actually found a scene in GTA V which perfectly sums up my general reaction to MAL.

Haha. Was the debate as hysterical as I envision it?
I find this year's election to be the most blatantly parodial one yet. Like the government is trying to deliberately demonstrate how retarded democracy is.
And actually, people vote for Trump because the alternative is Hillary. Frankly, it's a lose/lose situation no matter how you look at it. The benefit of Trump is that he's upfront and honest about being pure evil. Hillary does a really shitty job of hiding it. If she could at least pull a Little Finger and make herself seem somewhat sincere about her "good intentions" it wouldn't be so bad.
At least with Trump, we know what he's plotting. It's a choice between Senator Palpatine and Emperor Palpatine, really. Either way, we're sure to wind up with a power hungry dictator.
Still better than mob rule, though.

Oh, and really, Trump was inevitable ever since Arnold got into politics. Nietzsche predicted over a century ago that the future upper class would be actors. Why not an attention whore who built his reputation on being exaggeratedly rude and making a televised spectacle out of firing people. Americans don't want to be governed. We want to be entertained.
Even if at our own expense.

I barely remember any Shinkai works, but if memory serves, I could imagine the common themes of separation as a parable for death, even if not intentionally written as such. (fun fact: breakups and job-loss often follow the grieving cycle for coping with death. So Shinkai should start making movies about unemployment... it's where my avatar comes from)
I still never even finished Clannad. I've heard about After Story though. Completely ridiculous. :P Maybe if I wish upon a star hard enough all my problems will go away. School Days is far more realistic!

"If they cut off your arms you can always buy one of the Stephen Hawking thingies."
You do realize that guy is just a brain dead patsy, and Stephen Hawking is actually a super computer AI programmed into the chair, right?
And no, if I lose the use of my arms completely, Trump is going to either have me deported or used for tinder.
Ikusagami Sep 24, 3:23 AM
Loved the quote spam PMs. I do it with Napoleon and Nietzsche, but people just find that pretentious. lol. Yours were more poetic.
Oh wait, I do Red vs Blue and Breaking Bad, too... but that just makes me a nerd.
Now... "Say my name."
Ikusagami Sep 22, 5:03 AM
I'm part Native American and I grew up adhering to Bushido. I'm ALWAYS suicidal!
And poking fun at it is equivalent to racism, jackass.
What next, gonna make fun of my drinking and my casinos?
But yeah, been through some heavy emo stages lately, I must confess. I was in pretty bad shape even before I fucked up my arms, so not really ashamed of it. It's more a desire to ragequit at a shitty game than a "woe is me" at not being able to win.

"Satan loves his lewd Momo figmas."
I always thought Satan was more a Slice of Life kinda guy.

"So what you can't use a damn arm? Jamie Lannister also can't but he still fucks his sister and commands armies;"
Yeah, that's how he copes. I'm not getting any rewards for my suffering. lol

"A T-Rex never needed arms to be the dominant species;"
You realize they were just overcompensating out of perpetual frustration because they couldn't masturbate, right?

And dude. I missed your sense of humor. Glad I checked back in.
But yeah, watching shit gets boring after a while when you're an active person.
I cope by drinking. And netflix has been sending me TWO WHOLE DVDS A WEEK! And sometimes, one of them isn't even broken! It really staves off the boredom. (The government has deemed fit to give me $200 a month for food [yes, I am now one of those charity leeches I despise], but they don't have an internet welfare plan. Bastards. Internet is OBVIOUSLY more important than food)
Oh, and I can play video games again, to some extent, so long as I wear a wrist brace, though once I get surgeries (need three of them) the depressive boredom will return. The hardest thing, for me, is living in isolation. I live in the armpit of America, so staying cooped up indoors is actually preferable to venturing out with the hicks. Now if I hear banjo music, I don't have the strength to fight back.

I was actually suffering depression LONG before people started stabbing me in the back. I just did a better job of ignoring it. It's an ethics thing. I always said people who have no raison d'etre should just kill themselves rather than get in the way of real people. If I excluded myself, I'd be a hypocrite. (I would gladly sacrifice myself that Lord Trump may be apotheosized, and grow more powerful from devouring my soul!)

But at least I have medical insurance, now, even if next to nobody takes it. Maybe in a year or two I can actually have a life again.
So how the hell have you been? Still living la vida loli?

And yes, I hate what they've done to MAL. But making needless superficial changes and getting the masses to recognize it as improvement is the American Way!

Glad you liked it. We need more Jinrui love on this site. I'm always shocked by how little it's mentioned in.. well, anywhere. Which is even more surprising considering that everyone I shoved the show down their throat watched it either love it or have a positive opinion on it (7+). Then again, I'm also happy it's not that well-known and slightly under people's radar because I fear it'll turn into some Texhnolyze meme because most of the people I know that are fond of the show fall into the "elitist" category. And then people would bash it just because and I'd fight everyone of them.... and this took a weird turn.

Anyway, yes the staff was great, from the VAs to the director and Romeo is a boss. That ED by Masumi Ito was great too, it's one of the best things about the show, the symbolism and the art style, how it's animated, how it shows the rise and fall of civilizations, and last but not least, Watashi slipping on banana peel xD. I always tear up a bit when I hear it. Actually I just burst into tears like a little girl because it reminds of how great the show was and that I'll probably never experience something like it. The show was put together so well with it's non-chronological order, definitely, it was nice but also shocking to start with a short hair Watashi.

As for my favorite moments from the show, I'm totally with you about the time paradog arc. It was brilliant, though I'd also lean towards the school arc, and the finale more, because, one reason why I really loved this anime and Watashi a lot was because I could relate so much to it, especially in the end about the school because I experienced something sort of similar to Watashi's during my last highschool years and I just happened to stumble upon this show during that time, which made me so happy. I've never felt such an emotional connection to a fictional character like I did to Watashi, which is why she'll always be my all time favorite. I did write my thoughts on the last two episodes in simulwatch thread and why I felt that way in case you're interested. I admit my post about the last two episodes was messy af and poorly articulated. Though I can't help but get emotional and enthusiastic whenever I re-watch that arc, no matter how many times I watched it Actually, I just suck at properly explaining myself sometimes and like to make up excuses. It hits me in all the right spots I just don't know what to do anymore lol.

As for the novels not being translated, yes it's a shame. I'd do anything to read them. Which brings me to a something a friend of mine jokingly said when I told him the same thing. He said "if you'd do anything then why not learn japanese and import the novels". And I'm actually thinking about it. Maybe after I finish Uni or during it, idk, while it does seem like a far-fetched dumb goal but it's something I definitely plan on doing in my life. It'll probably take a long time, I also have doubts that I'll even commit to it, but I wanna try anyway, just not sure when. Also learning the superior weeb language would be cool I guess.
Okashi Sep 14, 5:23 PM
Thanks! And I believe I missed yours too anyway, so we're cool :p
and nice doggo

Really glad you started Humanity has Declined. You won't regret it. And yes, Mai did a perfect job with Watashi, the nonchalant cynical tone of her was spot on.

Needless to say, I would really love to hear your opinion on the show once you're done watching it.

This job search is brutal. Make sure to interview for internships if possible your 3rd / 2nd year and start looking for jobs by the start of your 4th year!
Anyways, how goes life? How goes anime? Why ask both when they mean the same thing?
Well... I say that not having watched much anime recently, but it's the thought that counts!

What manga is that profile picture? !
Soul-Master Jul 11, 10:53 PM
Damn, now thats good. How is the VN going? Tell me when you show up next.
Better late than never but... CONGRATS ON BEATING TROLLCAGE. Not many can pride on that achievement, so I welcome you with open arms to the group hehehe.

Good to hear you been well. I been busy but will probably be more free now.
Hhahaa, I still am but I decreased my pace and may soon be retiring. I don't really have many more people that I want to interview, the club needs freshly motivated officers. Maybe you should become one hahaaha.

I'm glad you liked it. A bit cliché indeed, but I definitely found it to be a fun film.

I hadn't given much thought to where they were actually.

'Still anticipating (and hoping you'll like) The Princess and the Pilot. :3

Right? I fucking hate the ever more prolific x-ray shit. Had a discussion with someone a while back on the worth of their existence, which I argue is none.

Don't think I recommended anything to you. I enjoyed Patema Inverted though. Overall interesting concept, faux-physics and all, marred by the central conflict turned silly by a shitlolvillain. Think the story would have benefited from being a series, but TV doesn't seem to be Yoshiura's thing, and the constraints would no doubt affect his strongest qualities in art and direction.

Back on a lewder subject, how are you doing? Think last I heard you were getting crushed by academia.
QuattroVaginas Jul 7, 4:12 PM
You probably haven't noticed, but my manga list is populated only by the ever tasteful Shintaro Kago; that is to say, I haven't read much (enough that I feel the need to add and keep track of them) h-manga/doujin other than a few more ubiquitous or acclaimed titles. My Zweihander, aptly fan-dubbed, leaves me with no method for the flipping of pages, or for the more technologically inclined, the clicking of mice or the tapping of glass. Thus I prefer the more hands-free experience. And who doesn't enjoy the dulcet composition of short-winded ieedamehayakukimochi followed by a sustained iku, finest of Japanese poetry? That GOP dude, probably.

Netoraserare is one I've been meaning to check out since the adaptation was absolutely unremarkable. So much that I can't remember if I liked/disliked it. A shame because otherwise, the studio had a decent track record, including what I reckon is the best mahou shoujo YTD. But yes, should the libido requires, I may consider its qualifications for my binders of women, which isn't nearly as formidable as you may think.

I have been watching anime for 17 years and it is very difficult for me to find something new. But, yes, I haven’t seen Sketchbook yet. You can’t even imagine how I appreciate recommendations. Thanks, man! I guess I should inspect your anime/manga lists soon.
