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

275 pound standing military press today. Quite proud of myself!

Tried 285...less proud of that.

I can't find the designated sarcasm font to tell you what a slacker you are.

17 hours holiday pay unlocked! off til saturday, tendonitis in foot healed can start running again. Nothing but training, anime and VGs for the rest of the week.
Should just do what my gympals do.



"...that's it? Jeez, try real weight".

I usually proceed to get incredibly flustered and try somethimg stupid...which ends in a minor injury...such as the wrist strain I gave myself when I deadlifted 525 a couple weeks ago.

I found out when you get older and push yourself, things in your body break. Last year I literally broke my pelvis running and was sidelined for 6 months.

and 525 goddamn, I remember when I thought I was hot @#$% in highschool when I benched 150lb.

@I mean really that only means you can lift 2 of me in each arm, slacker@ (searches fruitlessly for sarcasm font)

I try to support legitimate streaming sites.  Really, I do.  But Funimation's site is so bad I can't stand to watch anything on it...videos don't always load, some of their tabs don't even work, everything is so poorly organized, it takes far more clicks than should be necessary to do anything, every click is accompanied by excruciatingly long load times...

Get your fucking shit together, Funimation.  I may end up just going back to piracy...

Now that my PS3 is older CR barely functions on it except for 480p stuff.  It works OK on the WiiU but still lags and on computers I can only watch 720p. Funi still mostly works on my PS3 and streams well on my Chromebook. I keep it because its cheap and because its $49/year used to be 1.5 DVDs back in the day. Hulu is admittedly by far the best streaming site.

I used to have anime network, and remembering them streaming well (no game console apps to my knowledge) but their selection sucks.

I avoided all the trailers/previews for this game before it came out but now that its almost complete I checked a few out. Not sure if this has been posted yet but the japanese story trailer is amazing. I prefer dubs in video games but damn the japanese VAs sound amazing. I know that licence fees for VAs over there cost a bunch but I wish some games would include them as say free DLC with a preorder or for a small fee.

^ I don't think you CAN find that outfit.  The shirt's just a slight variation on one of the "Tee" models, but that skirt with stockings... I don't think you can get that as a separate piece of gear.
Where do you even see her in the game? Never seen that NPC before.

NPC from Hope's 2nd affinity mission.
