  1. What as a manga reader, I was slightly sad at Koe no Katachi being what it is. I mean, it's great as a movie, but it could have been so much more as a 1-cour. But then again, Yamada Naoka is way better at directing movies than she is at directing series...I I suppose for a movie, that was close to the best they could have done. Yuzuru best char for me.
  2. o7, I watched Kimi no Na Wa in theatres yesterday too. 10/10 Shinkai's best work. Has officially overthrown 5cm/s as top anime for me. Good old 5cm/s, you lasted 10 years, not bad. I actually have a Mitsuha key chain that I got from a Gacha machine in Akihabara last week. I hope Koe no Katachi impresses me as well in May, because I spent 8000 yen buying the key frames to that movie at the KyoAni store in Kyoto.
  3. ya GuP was pretty good, it got me into playing a tanks game after that, only to realize almost 2 years later that said game was utter cancer.
  4. Can confirm mother's Rosario was best SAO arc. By a pretty significant margin too imo. Haven't watched ordinal scale yet, tickets were sold out in Toronto when I checked to buy them. I did buy my tickets to Kimi no Na Wa. I may be extremely tired as I watch it tho, as I literally get back from a 2 week trip to Nippon a couple hours before the movie starts. Shame they only have a couple showings...
  5. White Album 2 is a dum anime where dum kuudere wins but tbh, my fav girls almost never win cuz I tend to like the childhood friend type, oh well. My first few 2 series were School Rumble and this show called Saikano. Will never forget both those shows, i think Saikano is the show that got me into the whole sad anime stuff. Still don't think it's a bad show. And school rumble is awesome, i mean.. who can't love tenma? XD
  6. Hi I haven't played tanks in like 2-3 years, but from what I remember... - south is pretty garbage cuz you get shot at from north ledge with very little counterplay. - as a platoon, you can have your heavy push the low ground on the north side, with a sniping guy at the back just playing out of the vision circle. Your 3rd tank is usually just playing behind your heavy, looking in the opposite direction and generally just looking scary and making it less appealing for the enemy to want to swarm your heavy. Ofc, both your heavy can be a little clever and poke in increments, just to see
  7. I work for a bank doing some mathy stuff :$. And yea, I do typesetting for Impatient Scans. Currently working on Yona and Skip Beat. Tho i'm not helping on the most recent chapter as I am in a diff city without my computer hehe. Also 0 games in recent, much congratulations, you have beaten the game
  8. I'm good ^_^, watching le animus and not needing to work cuz of holidays, everything is daijobu atm :). u?
  9. omg i forgot about this - looking forward to it! I remember being slightly disappointed at the different animation in season 2, but then quickly switched to "OMG S2 SO GUD". My impression of season 1 was that it was pretty good but nothing special though... dude, i had the "Theme of King JJ" playing on repeat all day at work the next day. Yuri on Ice has such good music. History Maker is probably my fav OP of the season, at least based on the music. Some other OPs have nicer animation. Kind of a disappointing season overall for me, only really g
  10. Hi I agree with silen's ratings, at least on the shows I'm watching. Also Tanaka-kun was awesome. Bye for another while. Edit: read akatsuki no yona manga, cuz I help scanlate it now.
  11. Original article by @KraftLawrence You load into Ruinberg in your Leopard 1. Easy, you think to yourself. I know where to go – field! Two minutes later, you find your tank in smolders. Your teammates, nowhere to be found, are all in town. What went wrong? You’re a Leo. Field does seem like the natural choice. I see this happen all the time in non-unicum players. The problem is that you skipped over steps in your thought process. What’s important is not what your initial deployment is, but rather what your plan is and what advantage you want to abuse to win the game. An initial deploy
  12. Original article by @KraftLawrence Let’s start with a game. This is called the 30 circles game. To set up the game, you take a pen and paper, and you draw 30 circles, 5 rows of 6. Then, the game is that you have 60 seconds to fill in as many circles as possible. There are a few conditions though. First, you can’t cheat. After 60 seconds are up, you must be an honorabru gamer and put your pen down. Second, each circle must have something different in it. See picture below. Someone drew a character from Mario, music notes, etc. You get the idea. When you’re ready, set up a timer and be
  13. Original article by @KraftLawrence Understanding Game Flow So here’s the situation. You’re an up-and-coming tanker, watching the superunicums stream. You’re trying to learn from them. You turn on sela’s stream and while learning to “eatdix”, you’re also seeing how all of his decisions make sense. “Oh look he’s pushing.” “Oh look he’s flexing to the other flank.” “Oh look he’s defending the base.” It all makes sense to you. Excited and erect, you load up that pub game, eager to eatdix in your WT Pz.IV or what other OP tank you have. But you can’t achieve the same results. Your te
  14. u better be getting some favors from her if you're making that kind of deal
  15. haikyuu yachi arc was 10/10, training arc probably 9 or so i thought noragami aragoto was extremely strong too this season, bishamon arc in particular. rest was pretty meh. I had higher expectations for both OP-man, Sakurakou, and Utaware going in, and I'm feeling rather disappointed. Utaware is picking up the pace now though (at least as of ep 12). K ~ Return of Kings and Owari no Seraph S2 were both good sequels to their respective first seasons, but both are average shows in the end. edit: owarimonogatari was also really good too. didn't think i'd enjoy the new
  16. Top 5 anime that ended in 2015 (in no particular order): death parade shirobako shigatsu wa kimi no uso yahari ore no seishun rabukome wa machigatteiru zoku hibike! euphonium honorable mentions to: noragami aragoto owarimonogatari saenai heroine no sodatekata akatsuki no yona akagami no shirayukihime working!!! zzz need to update my mal for past 2 seasons, o well. sometime soon(tm).
  17. Hi the person in my avatar is also called Rin, and she's pretty top tier!
  18. can confirm sakurakou-san is awesome. it's actually my 2nd fav show this season behind Itsuwari no Kamen, i'd say tied with Haikyuu, and just ahead of K: Return of Kings. One Punch started out really funny, but the same sort of humor has already gotten old for me by the 3rd ep. I don't know if it even passed the 3-episode test for me tbh. Owarimonogatari also dropped. @dia ya i'm watching that, I like it - tho I think sakurakou-san is the better mystery this season. Subete F has more popular source material though, that's for sure. ..and that covers all the new shows i'm watching this season
  19. watched AoT live action movie yesterday (part1) definitely not going to see part 2.
  20. the 2 mysteries this season both look really good, having just watched ep 1. Also, must hype Itsuwari no Kamen! This would probably the one show i'd watch if I only had time for 1 show per week.
  21. i mean, hanamonogatari still had that "monogatari" feel to it, which is the main reason i watch the franchise anyways - even tho kanbaru is probably one of the lesser interesting characters.
  22. platinum disco #1 marshmallow justice #2 .... big gap staple stable or renai circulation #3
  23. Since Fall2015 is almost upon us, I'm going to do my like.... n'th rewatch of Utawarerumono. I don't think I've watched it in the last 5 years, but I must've seen it at least 10 times in total. At some point, I actually knew all the lines the characters were going to say b4 they were going to say it. This is in celebration of it finally getting a sequel, Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen. If you're a fan of epic fantasy genre, I'd recommend watching it.
  24. i thought Ranpo Kitan was entertaining enough. Not "good" per se, but I was never bored. Kobayashi is a weird, yet extremely interesting character. Definitely most "out-there" character in recent years. I also liked Akechi's backstory, and thought he was an easy character to cheer for. But yeah, the show definitely wasn't a mystery show, and grossed me out most of the time. But I dropped so many shows this season, and this was not one of them.
