The only thing I remember from the first FSN anime is this gem:

Not to mention how hard it is for some overweight people just to go to the gym. Not because of laziness, but the fear of being judged and mocked just for trying. How sad a thought is that? We live in in such a prejudiced and intolerant society that we seek to put people down while they try to fix the thing we are putting them down for. It seems very damned if you do damned if you don't, to me.

I don't know about the U.S./Europe, but I know we have some gyms here in Montreal for overweight people only.

@Annubis: I guess we just fundamentally disagree about what social healthcare is for then. I think we both know how fruitless even trying to debate that issue is, so I won't bother.

Well, I kind of agree with you so there's actually no real debate to be had. My whole comment about people costing extra money is just to point out that there are repercussions to 'fat life' and I think it's damning that some people won't try to better their health when the possibility exists as opposed to others who do not have such an option. I can't think of a single downside to everyone trying to be healthier - either personal or as a society.
Still, anyone sick/hurt needs to get treated, no matter how they ended up needing treatment.

That's what social healthcare systems are for, yes, even those disgusting fat people we all seem to abhor so much. An obese person at 50 has to suffer the indignant shrill cries of 19 year olds in regards to healthcare cost. Who do you think has paid more taxes in that regard?

I prefer to think that social healthcare is for people like one of my friend who has several health problems (genetic/glandular) which he cannot do anything about except to though it up + pills + injections.
He is skin and bones and constantly sick to the point of being declared unable to work and he receives money from the government to live.
His own view on his life is that he probably would be lucky to hit 40.

How many more versions of FSN must they do before the inevitable FSN:Genderswap-everyone-version?
I'd watch that.

Essentially robbing global (or local) economies isn't just limited to the obese. You must have quite a long list of people to hate.. Or you just hate one particular aforementioned group of people.

Also applies to smokers, people that eat badly all the time, etc.
Anyone that raises the bill due to their own personal unhealthy lifestyle.

I'm also a water drinker, but a poutine needs a carbonated drink for easier digestion.

You (in the general sense) like being overweight? Well, keep up the good work, fella.

You (in the general sense) like being overweight and increase your odds of costing money to our global healthcare which I foot my part of the bill? Well F-you.

The aspartame arguements remind me of the violent video game arguements. How many times have independant research groups "performed a study" on violent video games and the associated effects they have on children and their developmental understanding of right amd wrong and the like? How many times have we all rolled our eyes at said results, knowing full well they're more or less funded by "soccer moms" who just need a war to wage?

The FDA says aspartame is fine in its current rate of consumption, and I'm fine with that answer.

Well, in my case I weight 135 and I don't have any problem with blood sugar.
No real reason to chance on some weird thing my body can't even digest when I can have the real thing without any issue.

I take 7-Up usually. Not sure about content, but it tastes a lot less sweet than other colas.
Canada Dry ginger ale is also good.

A shoehorned love story. etc etc. etc.

Dude... there was a prologue dedicated JUST to how they met. o_o

I'd also argue it was one of the rare games that DIDN'T just make it a normal love story; for one, Lenneth was leading the reigns on it than some magical RPG waif getting doe-eyed for her hero.

Take Lucian out (or replace him with literally any random person in the prologue) and it's exactly the same game.  He's exists for sappy "pull on heart strings" apeal.

If you send away Lucian and don't go for the A ending or keep him in your party, wouldn't there be no love story?
I don't remember how this would go in-game.

I'm just throwing it out there that a lot of people do the diet soft drink solution because of the huge amount of sugar they're trying to avoid in a regular soft drink. In an odd turn of events, I personally just prefer the taste now, diet pepsi is far less....sugary tasting than regular pepsi.

I don't believe in aspartame myself. That stuff can't be good for you.

Fucking finally!

Assuming it keeps the date, it'll beat Bleach in knowing when to give it up.

Don't worry, the anime still needs to catch up and there will be some movies.
You won't run out of Naruto yet.

I just tried and its DOUBLE bullshit. You get a point multiplier based on score and rank.
Meaning someone with good cards can get way more points than someone with less good cards.

I couldn't get first place even once =( my cards suck.

How'd you even get an idolized SR, anyway?  Just dumb luck?  Seems to me the odds of getting two of the same SR are way too small...

Incredible hyper dumb luck. I got BOTH on the same 11 recruit.

I'm watching the P4A:U story on Youtube and god damn is it wordy for no reason.

Leveling my idolized SR Eri is pretty damn eternal...
Makes me wonder how long an idolized UR would take.
