Eh? Legend of the Twilight is available on Hulu and Funimation.com, and the latter is even selling the DVD set for $30...which isn't bad for Anime. RightStuf might have it for cheaper, though.

Then again, .Hack Roots is selling for the same price, and that has 14 more episodes, so I guess that wasn't the best deal...

I tried reading xkcd, but honestly? It's up there with Penny Arcade where only about 1 in every 4 strips are ever funny, and the rest are either way too full of extremely in-joke material, or are just plain weird. It's just that when it's good, it's really good...

That said, Penny Arcade was at least a bit better between 2002-2006. Then it was 1/3 of the strips that were great, and the weird ones were memorably weird.

I feel like Sum 41 gets a bad rep because they started out as a "Me-Too" pop-punk band back when the fad was starting to wane. Their early stuff is just stupid to listen to, tbh. But by Underclass Hero, they really started getting their act together, and Screaming Bloody Murder was phenomenal, and really showed their growth and maturation when compared to their first two albums.

I seriously have to read the exact wording of that bill, because there's no freakin' way that could be constitutional if it blatantly allows discrimination. Senate Bill "Religious freedom" 101, correct?

EDIT: http://iga.in.gov/legislative/2015/bills/senate/101#digest-heading

^That one? I'm no lawyer, but that has to be one of the most vague bills I've seen in some time. I can't even tell what it does and does not enforce, and judging from the second sentence, it sounds like...the Government doesn't really have to persue 'certain actions' unless the government feels it is within their best interest. I'm glad people are protesting this, because it is obviously set up to be abused in a multitude of ways.

No, I'd dislike that. Regouista sucks because everyone's an idiot and nothing anybody does makes one iota of sense, even within the context of the series. There's a lot of inconsistancy to the stupidity, too, as well as conflicting tones. While Tomino's shows are weird, they'd ground themselves somewhere, and they'd usually have a lot of attention to small details and made sure everything flowed consistantly within their set universe. But a lot of his stuff stopped working around 1996. I'll admit that Reconguista isn't as outright bad as Brain Powerd, and it's not like I was expecting a return to form, either - all signs seemed to point to Tomino trying to do Overman King Gainer all over again, but this time hopefully better...it wasn't.

Was up all Monday night in a group editting session on Google Drive, fixing a story I had written late Sunday Night. Was good fun, but I ended up sleeping most of Tuesday, and I was afraid that it would screw up my sleep cycle...it didn't. Even after sleeping most of the day, I was still exhausted by 11 PM and slept all night. Pretty soundly, too. I had a pleasant dream about Agent D. watching a clip from Space Dandy and going "this is pretty neat, I think I could get into this show!" to boot. He looked like the Sorceress from Dragon's Crown with a mustache, though. :S

I read the whole article and it sounds more like they're just having a hard time developing for the PS4, and that they decided to strengthen their content delivery plan during development. While the features sound reassuring, hearing that "Every solution we came up with seemed to create more problems than it solved, so it has really been one step forward, two steps back the whole way” is very worrying...though I guess that may just be a part of the programming side, which wouldn't be unusual, especially for new hardware.

Most long-running game studios started out rough, actually. I think it's only in the last 15 years where you have to hit the ground running or risk losing the public. Telltale is by far a better company than when it started, for example. Square started out making crappy MSX ports. Bethesda made games like Where's Waldo? and Home Alone for the NES. If a modern company was to make games like those, they could kiss their careers and/or self-respect good-bye.

See, if I had gotten Type-0 when I was messing with Etrian Odyssey Untold two weeks ago, I would've loved having a bunch of stuff thrown at me, because that's what I wanted Untold to do...and it wasn't doing it, so I didn't enjoy it...

In other news, I purchased Goldeneye on eBay for $21, which unfortunately is actually a good deal for that game. It's supposed to arrive by the 27th, which is my birthday, so...happy birthday to me. =P

I liked Dunbine. =( Okay, his Pre-Gundam stuff I couldn't get into, but I genuinely enjoyed everything he put out until Post-Victory Gundam...in fact, I only liked 3 of his shows after that, and the ones that weren't Turn A Gundam could've been better.

Tomino...just...Tomino.

Also, while I kinda just found this band, Acid Black Cherry had a fantastic first Album, with a surprising amount of variation and fun and that I'm just not getting from their later albums. Of course, time will tell whether or not the later stuff will grow on me, but I went from almost immediately loving just about every song in Black List, to...not really caring for any of the songs in L...
