You guys are missing the point.  Days are shorter in the winter and there's nothing you can do to your clocks to change that.  The motivation behind DST was more along the line that if you didn't do it the sun would rise really early in the summer, so you might as well move things by an hour and have more light in the evening.

Not that I support the practice, mind you, but that was the thought behind it.  Again winter is standard time, it's changed for the summer.

I don't mind DST, but that's probably thanks to the country I live in. No DST means sun setting before 4 PM in winter. Okay, the transition is still not fun, but I manage by adjusting my sleep schedule two weeks in advance.

But winter is standard time.  It's the summer that's 'savings' time.

I seriously don't know how people became fans of One Man Punch with the original art.

To be fair I don't think OPM really got popular until after it was remade.

Great, now I had to google "MGTOW" too.  I don't like the profile google is building on me now...

I should just remain oblivious.

^ Seen all of the above.

This is why I don't normally ask for recommendations...

I had to google 'MRA' because I had no idea what you guys were talking about...

What makes you say that? They didn't do that with SC, and the full-voice version of that was already out.

Actually, no it wasn't.  SC Evolution didn't come out until December 10, 2015 in Japan.  English release was October 29.

And I believe even the non-Evolution versions of Zero and Ao still had voice acting.  Just not as much.

As for the bullet points, it's the same vague bullshit as every other time. If they were honest they'd stop trying to smokescreen it every time.

Your bizarre inability to accept reality does not mean that Xseed is being dishonest.  Frankly they've been extremely upfront about this stuff from the start.

And don't try to pretend you wouldn't be bitching and moaning if they didn't release SC on PSP.

Oh for the love of...

You should have noticed the ship you were on was sinking.  The signs weren't subtle.  Frankly it's a small miracle they supported a PSP game even this long.

But if you're really concerned about having clear data from the previous games, you can just download a save file from the intertubes.  Maybe it's not 'your' data but no one will ever have to know.  Clear data only unlocks a handful of things in these games anyway.  Mass Effect it ain't.

If you haven't seen any of it yet, Dog Days

Of course I've seen it!  Who do you think I am?
(But seriously I got kind of bored with that show after the first season.  There is such a thing as too much fluff...)

Lighthearted? How about Humanity Has Declined. It's got a bit of an Atelier feel. Okay, more like Atelier on acid. It's insane in a cute, mellow way and fully aware of it.

Now there's a suggestion I didn't expect.  I've heard of the show before but never watched it.  I thought it was supposed to be more weird than anything.

I imported Zero and Ao (Evolution versions) already because I figured they would never be localized.  Though I still haven't gotten around to actually playing them though...

It does kind of make me wonder what Xseed would do about voice acting if they did actually pick those up though.  I mean, the TitS games didn't really have it (OK there were 'battle voices' but that was it) so they didn't have much to worry about, but Zero and Ao (especially the Evolution versions) are positively loaded with it, and they seem much too niche to make reproducing that in English even remotely feasible.  But Xseed don't seem to be big fans of subtitle-only releases, plus there are going to be licensing issues with the VAs...

I really need some more lighthearted anime to watch...a lot of the time I just want something silly and fun to relax with after work.  Not everything has to be grimdark.

But look at what am I watching now.  Erased is great but it can be seriously depressing.  Gate is completely ridiculous but not on purpose.  It tries oh so hard to be serious.  Durarara has always been a mix but the latest episodes have definitely gotten darker as it starts to finally wrap up.  Gundam is Gundam.  Even Utawarerumono has gotten pretty gloomy despite acting like a slice-of-life show for the whole first season.

There is Konosuba which is definitely lighthearted, but it's only one show and I read the novels before so I already know what happens...

Yeah, I need more.

Nice boat.

As disgusting as the KKK is I don't think attacking them with an angry mob was the appropriate response...

I'll let you know how I react to people trying to flirt with me as soon as I'm in that situation...

...'cause that's like, never actually happened.

Briggs Meyers is total BS though...
