Did episode 3 of TWD. Everybody I like keeps dying.

I'm seeing people expressing concern that Link isn't a lady/that Zelda isn't the main character but like
maybe Link really is a lady and they just didn't reveal it yet, because that'd ruin the surprise
maybe it's part of a secret ending where if you get a high enough completion within a certain period of time
Link just rips his skin off and was Zelda the entire time and has inexplicably green hair.

If you are going to have a 1st person silent protag, it should be easy to just have create your own Link. I don't play many Zeldas but this one is looking quality. I'm guessing that with the 2nd screen this game will be better on the WiiU.

At 1st I'm like meh but then I realize I have to stop comparing every single lineup to Winter 2016. Summer 2016 looks like it could be decent. Read an issue of the manga, Handa-Kun will be good, but its no Barakamon. Mappa is doing Days so that could be at the least pretty too look at.

I held out from reading Orange and A Silent Voice because I knew the series and movie were coming out.

I'll give ReLife a shot.

Also looking forward to Kingsglaive and Tales. Have RE: Zero on the back burner for a rainy day.

Fall is shaping up nicely.

One more LoK related thing. Voltron starts on netflix today (all episodes released) and studio mir is animating it.

Wasn't a big Voltron fan growing up but it looks quite good. Might have to subscribe to netflix for a month

You actually summed up my feelings on LoK pretty well. Lots of cool ideas along with some mind-bogglingly weird ones, but the shiny animation on top really helps. They definitely went for some more mature themes in the show than TLA did, but I think people look on TLA more fondly because it kept things simple and did them pretty well, whereas LoK went for something more and had mixed results with it.

Best part of it for me was still the Avatar origin story. I would love to see a whole series animated like that.

-The series appears to wants to get really dark, but it can't becasue nickelodeon. However they finesse that constraint well and because you don't really expect it the deaths are a bit more shocking.

-Its also one of few western series that dabbles in greys and does it extremely well, which makes it ultimately disapointing when the writers suddenly abandon at the end for a good v. evil beatdown.

-there are other point/counterpoint moments in the series. Point: Teenagers with too much power and fame can occasionally be massive a-holes. REALISM! Also, you like ships? YOU GET ALL THE SHIPS!! Counterpoint: when 2 douchebags combine it creates some unstoppable weapon of story destruction. By the time this story is done I feel like I will never ship anyone in any story ever again. Jinora is a decent kid character and this was me when she initally blushed at Kai


-I just love when series have s--t just got real moments. So my fav episode was book 1 episode 6. As far has action scenes the fight on the top of the arena is every bit as good as Gintoki v. Jiricho, Ed vs Greed and episode 2 of Dimension W (Loser). The Okami inspired episodes were incredibly told and full of imagination and beautiful art.

-Dimension W is actually a good comparison to LoK. There are fantastic moments in Dimension W in which you feel like this the 2nd coming of Cowboy Bebop, but it never really quite gets there.

Oh man I have to give Persona another shot as well.
I really didn't like Persona 3. I feel into that Gaf hype again and was let down. After that I just skipped 4. But based solely on that trailer this game looks far more interesting in many ways.

You'll probably like 4.

I loved Persona 2's story (only played the PS1 version), its just the gameplay was so poor. You had to save like every 5th battle because it was so unbalanced plus you got a random battle after just a few steps (remembers the building on fire dungeon and knashes teeth in frustration).

Watched the 1st 2.5 seasons of Legend of Korra. Didn't know it was a sequal to Last Airbender but figured hell I'll watch 1st anyway.

And wow, there is so much there to unpack.  Its going to finish up in my top 20-25 of all time on the strength of the art and fight scenes and I defo think everybody should watch it. However its kind of weird too, I don't think I've ever been so disapointed in a animated series that I've enjoyed so much. The story is solid but the creators just made some head scratching choices in the writing that made me want to tear every follicle of hair out of my head because its an excellent series that feels like it should be one of the all time greatest if the writers would just stop getting in their own damn way or something.

One of the reasons why I went into healthcare was pretty much so I could wear scrubs and running shoes to work.

mostly long sleeve/t-shirts and jeans/shorts. I usually try to different when it comes to running shoes/socks. The brighter/gaudier the better. Currently wearing these

Thinking about trying out the Phantasy Star series.... not that I don't have stuff to play but I noticed them somewhere, I guess the first one is on the VC.

PS2 is my favorite of the series. Its about 40-50 hours long so not all that grindy, and IMO it has the best music and graphics of the 4. Story, while excellent is kind of sparce though. I think the whole script is about 8-10 pages long. It can be hard as hell without a map though.

PS3 is the easiest and the shortest, was a competent game but a step down from everything PS2 did.

PS4. I couldn't get into though will admit its the best place to start. I didn't play it until about 2005 so it suffered the chrono trigger, I played this thing way too late thing. I had also missed the sci-fi world of PS2.

Uh, about Hulu...

I'm in Europe, so CR is pretty much the only reliable streaming service when it comes to anime. Viewster has an okay selection but next to no aps.

still on as of june 1, hopefully it will stay that way
