Not dead yet, though there are times it would be preferable.
Pretty sure I'm immortal at this rate. Won't believe otherwise until somebody proves it.

So how is Der Bob? See any worthwhile anime in a while? I haven't even checked what was airing the last few seasons. Inuyashiki was okay, but nothing spectacular, second season of Arslan bored me quickly, and I tried a few series that all have the same goddamn trope of somebody dying and being reborn into a fantasy world.
I've always complained fantasy is underused in anime, but why the fuck does it require a tie-in to modern Japan to be popular? Fuckin' xenophobes. I thought this trend was overplayed in the 90s and now it's making a comeback. Throw in that SAO popularized the trend of boringly overpowered protagonists and suffice to say... I've been sticking with Western television/movies lately.
Has the highschool/loli craze at least died down yet?
Any recommendations?

Also added Misuboshi to my plan to read now hehe.

So I actually exported to Anilist for all of 2 mins, before I decided I hate the UI. Probably could have taken the time to get used to it, but fuck it, lists came back to MAL soon after. It's like having a retarded son you can't leave alone. Can't relate? Me neither.

So I was actually going to include my thoughts on the Busters in my last email, then realized I'm retarded and you haven't watched Die at that point and deleted it. Reading your comment I had to double check if I did ended up sending it. I will always love the OVA boom, as it gave birth to so many passion projects. Even among gold, Gunbuster shone at the time despite its adherence to classic mecha tropes. Even the pseudo-science had its charm (though they went a bit too far up their own ass in the science specials). On the other hand, later Gainax, and early Trigger, had a style that shaped every show they put out, which made them distinct and not at the same time, and Diebuster was a victim of its time. Definitely not a negative, but its main allure remains its iconic predecessor. There is almost a dichotomy between the fanbases of Gun/DieBuster, so I'm glad you were able to enjoy both.

So what's next on your cultural appreciation journey?

OVA is the best way to experience them. Aside from improved audio/visual, the movies are mostly-cut-and-sometimes-paste jobs. Looking at the runtimes should convince you. Can't think of any compilations worth watching over originals actually.

Love to read more in-depth on what you thought of the Busters after you finish them. I always push them as part of the mecha starter pack, and it's pretty well received by people who claim to hate mecha, but Gunbuster (less so her sister) actually adheres fairly well to the "real robot" formula. It's undoubtedly a landmark for Gainax though.

I'm not really about the production side of things, but I should really migrate; the only thing MAL has gotten better at over these years is serving me ads.

Mostly following seasonals. Been picking up old hobbies like diddling plastic girls and robots, so haven't been mass-binging older series like I used to. But at this point I've probably seen the majority of what I'd feel worth consuming. Honestly though, I think recent seasons have been pretty exceptional, relatively. Besides all the sequels I'm following, Hinamatsuri and Hisone to Maso-tan are top of my list currently. Last season had some prime CGDCT. Mitsuboshi Colors, which I see you're reading, was the favorite. On the other hand most of these are comedies, and there's a decline in shit I can enjoy taking seriously. Which is fine, other media generally hit that spot better for me.

Good luck. From experience, it's never inopportune to bust out some Cream Lemon trivia to impress that upper management.

This is (literally) the first time I open the forums in months and here's already a familiar avatar.
Sup, my regards to the fam.

Literally my first post in weeks and already graced with my favorite xbobx. Your forum presence is greatly missed. Thankfully there's nothing else to be missed in the forum, so easy deal. Must have been years since our last conversation. Making bank with that ME degree? Drop me some lines whenever you stealth in man, bring some meaning to MALife.

clannad is garbage and nobody with a sound mind should give it 10/10. Take off nostalgia lenses before you write reviews

hiya and yep its been a while~ forever even xD and in the meantime I've learned how to write like a dweeb

hmmm this site is more than just anime listing (for me)!! there's still the card stuff lol. I'm busy with all that fluff and stuff, and procrastinating on anything. also got my own workload to do...
and I see. I did get a mention I suppose xD

Akatsuki? it's been on my ptw ever seen before MAL lol. Inuyasha hmm.. never seen those famous oldies. I'm more for the oldies that are unheard of, since I'm not sure I like trudging through ancient animation for a plotline I alrdy know haha

"We won't laugh until we get the money, we won't cry until we go bankrupt." This may be years old, but this quote from your "Spice and Wolf" review has me stunned. I've never heard it before, but I can relate to it, so thank you. :)

But does a belated reply to a belated reply of a belated reply still make everything fine?

I used to like scrolling through Amazon user reviews, hence ending up typing a few for games. The harsh criticism of customers is more reliable than the paid for reviews of critics. And whilst I don't know about blogs related to Amazon reviews, I did once come across a story about an actual serial killer that reviewed items, such as shovels, locks, handcuffs and the like, giving accurate opinions on their usefulness through experience. Sometimes troll reviews... aren't. Still darkly comical that that people would upvote his reviews, mind.

All I know of Brazil is, going on City of God /Fast & Furious and Max Payne 3, the slums would not be an ideal place to go on holiday. Or send gifts via the postal service there. Customs in the UK are a nightmare: I think it's anything declared over £16 in terms of DVDs/games and whatnot get a fee, so hafta pay import fees in advance or get a retailer that lies on label. Still better than Brazil, I wager.

About Chrno, I do remember how the anime ended, if only because it was somewhere between deep - suggesting Aion was God testing people - or trolling. It makes sense my memories would be cloudy over the brother/alien aspect if it was all in the final volume, which I only read once. Your description of the plot with Aion/Chrno having a human mother and Aion's rebellion against the elders being a response of his mistreatment rather than him being as evilll as the anime suggested. How come Chrno still, iirc, killed Aion off-page in the manga? To stop him as he'd gone too far by then?

Ah, I should've known it was another RT series given her art style so similar in terms of heroines. I SEE KYOUKO EVERYWHERE. Never got around to trying Inuyasha, despite owning first season on DVD. I suppose the shounen-ish looking male lead didn't appeal to me. My affection for Takahashi is a bit all over the place: I adore her more grounded, titles like MI, her one-shots that got an anthology anime and Mermaid Forest. But I hated Ranma 1/2 and found UY too random. Also didn't like her newer series, Rinne. I will always love her distinctive, charming artwork, though.

Anyway, sorry for taking so long for getting back to you. Dedicated I am not. How has anime/life/existence been going for you?

Actually, I think we met in like 2012 when I first joined, when you were still a bright eyed high school teen; so congratulations for keeping my interest longer than most. I'm usually glaring/throwing daggers at people after knowing them more than a week, haha.
Congratulations on surviving through the education system. Soon you can begin the blessed path of being an embittered working adult.

Oh shit, I'd forgotten about Nanoha. I was going to watch that a couple years ago after Princess Tutu. Actually at your recommendation, I believe.
Ugh. Don't even ask. 2018 still has the vestiges of 2017 clinging to it like a hungry walker. But thankfully my medical procedures are finally underway after many many setbacks. I get to spend the next few months being poked and prodded by digestive system experts.

Thanks for updating your Kannagi review all these years!
