I'm nonplussed about the bigotry. I'm nonplussed about the posturing and threats to involve a lawyer. What I can't get is, like, QR codes on homework assignments. I can't think right now. I don't understand anything. I just want to buy some land and raise donkeys/minicows and not talk to people.

Mom I won't let my son be a part of these barbarian practices !!!
Teacher Madam, Islam is a religion that has nothing to do with terrorists.
Mom: Islam?? I was talking about scanning QR codes.

After some heavy drinking, you wake up in your car and there's a hobo sleeping in there with you and you're like What? but then your cellphone rings and it's that girl you like from the cabaret club you own telling you they need you at work. So you grab a cab because you're way too drunk to drive and go there. You manage the place for a couple of thousands of years kicking out the ugly girls throughout the ages and only keeping the ones you trained personally which are the real beauties. Then, at some point someone calls you and says that your car isn't where you parked it anymore and you're like WTF? Dude, where's my car? You go look for your car and you find that the hobo is driving it around and you're like get the fuck out of my car you fucking hobo and then he's like nanana I'm one with it lololol so you get some dude to go buy some MickyD to tempt the hobo out of the car and it works somewhat. Then you decide it's time to get your car back but GODFUCKENDAMNIT, there was a girl in the car which is the descendant of the girl who had the bizarro keys to the car. They're bizarro keys because instead of starting the car, they stop it. So you're now stuck in the car, with the bizarro keys in the ignition which will stop the engine and then the Hobo jumps back into the car, pushes the girl out, closes the door and teabags you while the bizarro keys in the ignition turn off the engine and the car goes to sleep. Then the battery dies because the hobo left the lights on all this time and the doors are electric so you're stuck in the fucking car with the fucking hobo hoping that one day lightning strikes the hood and recharges the battery and the electric doors can open again.

Add-on: Looking at the story from Witsuarunemitea's point of view makes Hakuoro the real bad guy =/

I got the Blue-rays myself and they look incredible. I know it's not the first time I bring it up, but they really put some serious effort and it shows.

  • What's the deal with Niwe?  Out of all the enemies they fought he's probably the one I understand the least.  Is he just crazy or what?  What was he even fighting for?  He's got this massive country and all he wants to do is provoke Hakuroro.  Like, get a hobby or something.

Niwe was manipulated by Dii (Witsuarunemitea Dark) into fighting with Hakuoro. As a warrior, Niwe was peerless and bored of it. You can assume that he was offered to fight a god should he manage to awaken it. For Niwe, that was the bargain of a lifetime.

  • What the heck is Hakuoro anyway?  I sort of get it and sort of don't...that was all over the place.

Hakuoro is Iceman aka Witsuarunemitea. Witsuarunemitea is THE god. He controls all races and throughout history has lead them to evolve.
In the past, he led humans to their pinnacle and then went to sleep. His avatar was Iceman at that moment.
Later, through wars, the world became a barren wasteland where humans can't even live outside bunkers.
The research team was cloning Iceman (aka God) + human DNA (which somehow made animal people?? God is a furry) in order to make a race that could live outside. As they researched God, it started to awaken and the project was going to be aborted and Iceman frozen again (who knows what God would do if awoken). Mizushima (the one who killed past Hakuoro) killed everyone and allowed the research subjects to escape the facility and he also let Iceman awaken.
Now, Hakuoro when shot somehow became a part of Iceman aka Witsuarunemitea.
As Witsuarunemitea awoke, he basically saw that he needed to resume his work as God and again lead the creatures of the world to evolve. In order to do so, he separated from the part of himself that was contaminated by past Hakuoro and let that one sleep.
Then Witsuarunemitea Dark (since Hakuoro is refered to Light) evolved the world to it's present state, swapping between avatars throughout the ages. One important part of Witsuarunemitea's view on evolution is Darwinism and as such, he tends to force conflict to strengthen the playing field.
At some point, thousands of years later, Hakuoro awakens as Iceman's body with Hakuoro's consciousness.

TLDR: Hakuoro is the mind of his past self in an old avatar that God possessed at some point before. You can assume that some of the powers of god still linger in there but Hakuoro doesn't really have an idea how to use them as opposed to Dii which is the current avatar of god and thus possesses the mind of god too.

I thought that the jokes in YuruYuri would have gone stale by now, but that last part actually made me laugh out loud.
Well played YuruYuri. Well played.

Me? Yes.

Sorry, can't help you then.

EDIT: not because you're American, but because Americans have no health and safety mandates for work.

Are you American?

Well, the good thing with Persona games is that if you don't like the character, just use some other character instead and ignore her S-link.
On the other hand, if you don't care and are happy with her being promoted sex appeal (should that be the case; still willing to give benefit of the doubt for now), you can user her and even pair her up with the other girls.

Idiot sets fire to his house and fails at stopping it while everything is streamed from a webcam.

After-effects include a giant leap in extinguisher sales on Amazon.jp

The new Master of Orion won't have tactical combat or ship designing.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I just lost all interest in this reboot.

Dick jokes aside, the first episode of the new Utawarerumono was great.

GTA V is crap. I don't even need to play it to tell you that.

New Utawarerumono

Tales of Phantasia - I recently realized that I own Tales of: Phantasia, Destiny, Eternia (in Destiny II form), Symphonia, Legendia, The Abyss, Vesperia, Graces f and Xillia and I've only ever beaten the one (Eternia).  Worse off, I've never even opened Abyss, Graces f or Xillia.  

I've resolved to rectify this atrocity with the quickness.
Wait, do you own the GBA version?  If so, stop!  Phantasia is an awesome game but the GBA version is a garbage port!  


They had to simplify the game's battle system so much that it ends up being way too easy.
It's so easy, someone beat the game, no problem, with a group of lvl 1,1,3,9 (starting levels)

The biggest thing is the complete removal of hit animation avoidance. This boss normally cannot be dazed or even enter 'hit animation' by attacks, but look at the GBA version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9br2F0csnrU
You can keep any enemy perma-stunned. Even the last boss.

If that's not enough, the game is horrendously slow due to the low power of the GBA.

I'd recommend the GATE manga to anyone that likes the anime.
While not terrible, the anime isn't that great. It's very dry and feels more like they are trying to 'check' plot elements from the novel off a checklist.
The manga does a better job at pretty much everything.
