      You need to.

      I absolutely 'love' the FMA Brotherhood OP.

      Oh yeah, the episode itself was good but...

      The OP ITSELF has SO much promise. :D

      Bummer the ED doesn't release until... *cry* the 29th. ;-;

      Anyways, I've learned my lesson, I'ma just watch it in the afternoon on sundays from now on... The feed on keyhole is unreliable and often can need a reload... Which is a pain watching it live.

      From now at least until say... New Haruhi episodes premier and/or whenever Umineko starts (crossing fingers for this summer) I'll be keeping with the new image and title.

      Liked it, what little bit came in well...

      ED and OP have great music, but the OP has the superior animation, ED is too... cutesy for me.

      Preview for next week is LOTS of promise of a great reworking of the 'introduction' so to speak.

      Expect subs in the 12-3 pm timeframe, provided there are GOOD speed subbers out there. Don't expect animesuki to have them, it's technically licensed. Try Tokyo Toshokan or Mininova.

      Oh yeah and just to say I also called it, there's been info released concerning the Haruhi reairing... There's gonna be 28 episodes instead of just 12. So, look forward to new Haruhi content. :D

      It was today, on a day that should have been enjoyable and while it was, it could be better.

      On the first note, two pain in the ass things happened (kind of a getting bad news out of the way first thing...):
      -Mother left car lights on and battery died, didn't find out until AFTER getting out of Eva and wasted 1 hour trying to get service (luckily, the guy was nice, quick and efficient, she gave him a tip even though she didn't have to)
      -The evening had two horrors, terribly thick fog and the discovery my keyboard had soda spilled on it (The former was more scary, the latter annoying BUT good, as my aunt will be putting funds forward for a new one soon)

      But above all, I was reminded why I enjoy anime in small or solitary viewings:

      The audience.

      Sweet jesus christ, even the fans themselves made this suck. From the elitist club member, to the jackass/cocky/immature fans, you had everything today, INCLUDING newbie tourists who knew nothing and/or didn't really care for it.

      I dunno what bothered me the most... The idiots triggering laughter at inappropriate moments during Eva 1.0 (And seriously, I could have cared less had they not been laughing at OBVIOUSLY SERIOUS TIMES), the jackass making commentary to himself every 3 minutes during The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, or just the general lack of an authentic anime feel (which a guest speaker who'd written culture phenomenon focused books somewhat repaired, he REALLY does get the culture and like me, thought that Leapt was an amazing film), the experience COULD have been better.

      I promise you, I enjoyed myself but... It just got killed one too many times.

      And the annoying part? You hear less chatter/noise in REGULAR movies that are MUCH lower in quality of material. How the fuck can the audience of say Cloverfield be better than a fucking audience for Eva 1.0?!

      And the aforementioned commentary guy proceeded to clap during what he thought was the end of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. I didn't get to shout at him directly, but I waved my arm back at him, attempting to get him to shut up.

      It wasn't worth bothering with further, as I realized how much further of a jerk he was when we overheared him say, "Well, you may have lied about there being boobs in this movie, but I still liked it."

      UGH.

      This is what's painful about being an 'aware' fan of ANYTHING. You know the stereotypes of your culture/hobby and are able to avoid them, but you can never escape them completely. Don't be this person. Either watch anime with small groups, select friends or BY YOURSELF for the best experience. AVOID LARGE CROWS.

      However, here's hopes Tekkoshocon will provide a more enjoyable, fun and good experience. It's at an ACTUAL CONVENTION CENTER AFTER ALL.

      And we spent very little cash on this trip so I may get closer to the 125-175 dollar spending range for tekko. I won't go into detail for what I'll be looking for but... Clannad, Little Busters, Umineko and Koihime Muso are at the top of my list.

      If I could find an artbook for KM... Or maybe something more detailed, maybe say a pricey figure for Aisha/Kan'u, I'd like that.

      What I'd REALLY kill for... Is an actual copy of the FVE of Clannad. That way I could legitimately use the translation patches and play the game. :3

      No big announcement on the KyoAni Key adaptations sadly...

      They announced a new anime that I couldn't recognize, but it appears it'll be a comedy series... Or a slice of life series, not sure just which...

      Very little I could gather but I'm pretty much 100% certain I saw the same characters used in the uper left corner of the screen for 'announcement'.

      And it supposedly premiers april second... Guess that might degrade my suspicion for Haruhi season 2 starting this season too...

      www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=10562

      Here's what they announced... And most people on the anisuki clannad forum... aren't pleased.

      Madworld is wayyyyyyy too fucking violent.

      Sometimes, I think there's REALLY a line to draw and...

      I mean, this shit is worse than anything out there. There's no humor or cleverness like say No More Heroes, the plot is very thing, the black and white gets annoying, the soundtrack has shitty rap music and it feels like they're cussing because 'lol, I sayd cok' kind of reasoning...

      I don't mind violence, really, I don't but... When I play this game, it feels dirty and unpleasant.

      Cool but... Not a 'good' kind of cool.

      That and the originality wears off FAST.

      Let me be honest people, you're not missing out by not getting this game. If you're looking for a new game and have something ELSE besides the Wii well...

      Resident Evil 5 is the way to go.

      Oh God am I slow at FFXII. I've got 20 hours soaked into it and I've just gotten back to town after getting my first esper (vagueness for not spoiling to others!). I just like grinding in this game, can't really explain why. So a good 5 hours of that time is probably just grinding.

      Heh, no it's not just you. But I have a serious lack of good FFXII images.

      I understand completely, I liked the series but it's not my favorite, and I wouldn't say it's the best anime I've ever seen. It's just decent.

    • Airwaffle

      12 years ago

      Yeah, it's kinda lonely out here. My real move was actually delayed since they shipped me out to Livermore 3 weeks after I started. I've only just unpacked last weekend and the furniture is slowly trickling in. I only just met some more people to hang out with on Saturday too. The warm glow of a new flat panel TV will help me fill the void in my life.

      Currently, I have no PS2. So, I'd need something to fill in that void. Also, if I see that the prices are insane on e-bay, I can flip it and pocket the money. I will definitely be getting a Wii though. I also have enough space set up so that I can play it. I still need a couch though.

    • Alana_Elric

      Honestly, never played FFVII so I'm going to ignore that comment there.

      Secondly, really, I've heard that the whole plotline of it sorta falls through towards the end, in that there's no character development and it's just bland (which, is actually surprising to me, but considering they have the same designers in as there were in FFIX, I don't blame them, considering the setting was kinda bland, but at least then, the characters had a CHANGE by the end of it) And politics hasn't been a topic that the FF anthology has touched in a long while (I mean whole story wise, not just here and there, and while you can say that FFVIII had it, that game was just confusing as hell anyways, so really, I don't count that)

      But honestly, I've heard it's not really worth the hype they're giving it, but that's me. I may buy it later out of curiousity, but my money is better spent elsewhere at the moment.

      Farming isn't too bad, if you're used to just grinding which I'm assuming you are since you play RPGs a lot, then it's just fairly time consuming, because you have to find something that sells for a decent amount of cash. Mage is fun. I had a white mage, it's kinda tough to farm as a mage only because then you have to rest a lot for mana, but it's doable. And it's VERY important to have pretty much every spell, though you can skip out on some.

      I wish you could just play a trial, because really that's the best way to decide with FFXI.

    • TPR

      12 years ago

      AHA! Awesome! Thanks Phil.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      Believe me, it's definitely worse time-wise. Especially if you're going to be playing 3-5 hours a day. I would play for maybe 2-3 hours a day and I got nowhere fast, while my friends who were allowed more time passed me up because every hour counts. You can't just grind up like people do in WoW.

      If you read any review site that compares the MMOs, they'll say FFXI is the MMO to play for people who really want to spend time on the game. Since there's so much more to do on just one character, it takes a while. There are some quests that you absolutely have to do in order to get gear that if you don't have you'll have problems finding parties, and you always have to keep your gear and spells if you're a mage up to you level, which means you have to spend a decent amount of time farming.

      Not trying to say that it's a bad game, just saying that you really do have to want to dedicate a lot of time to it.

    • Mendaa

      12 years ago

      Unless you're willing to soak a lot of time into a single game, I'd say steer clear of FFXI. As much as I love it, it really takes a lot of dedication, and relies heavily on making static parties (same people on a fixed schedule) that tend to lead to a lot of drama. Also, every 5 minutes is a smoke break.

      But it's a great game if you have the time to dedicate to it.

      It was apperantly the official Kanon manga, it was pretty good, and it just had the kind of story that I love. That's to be expected though.

      Eh, I still kinda want to watch it, and it won't really ruin anything for me, I already know the story from reading the manga I think.

      More importantly, I just finished downloading a set of 10 tracks from Kanon and Air on piano that are gorgeous. Mmm, I only recognise the air ones and maybe one or two from Kanon, but that'll change when I finish the series =P
