I'm yet again surprised by how little women are playing LoL at pro level.
None in Worlds again. Nearly none in the LCS/LCK/LPL/LMS and it was only temps until they managed to get the seeds.

Something tells me a lot of female players would be too turned off by the toxic League community to play it competitively until they reach pro status. Just a hunch.

Apartment is cold. Heat doesn't get turned on for another couple of weeks so dang. Couldn't sleep well /at all/ last night 'cause of this. Stayed up till like 3AM shivering and having disturbing... not-quite-dreams. Ended up watching youtube on my 3DS for awhile to knock myself out.

Yeah, same. I mean, my dreams are weird enough already, but last night I spent the entire (~4 hour) night pointing out how weird the dream was while I was still dreaming. "Who is this? What is that? what am I? Why is this happening?" Those parts are the only bits I remember in detail, along with a mental image of some kind of...dog...person...thing....ugh...that was probably from an obscure RPG Maker game, now that I think about it.

Damnit Marty, you sold me. I'm downloading the demo, at least.

I know the art in the Refine version was changed to keep it more in line with Princess Maker 4, but mostly just the ones related to the characters, I think.

EDIT: Wait, it came out a week early? What?

LoL Worlds starting just now.
They got Chips and Noi again to comment on the French stream.

Oh, World Championship. I thought you were talking about an MMO League of Legends spin-off for a second there, and I had to do a double-take...

^Okay, yeah, that all sounds too messed up for my tastes. Now I'm very glad I dropped it like a rock halfway through episode...actually, I think I didn't even finish the first episode before I saw the writing on the wall and bailed. I was expecting something a lot more upbeat when I saw the initial trailers, though I guess they were meant to fake you out so the gutpunch would really hit where it hurts...

Anyways, First season of Iron-Blooded Orphans: done. Ready for season 2.

I think he mean that when you read those titles he highlighted with red boxes together as a single sentence, they're sound hilarious. And/or disturbing as hell.

...or at least, that's how I interpretted it. Maybe I'm weird. It wouldn't be the first time.

I had a dream last night where my mind implanted the members of Class VII into famous moments during the actual French Revolution. I found this strange since, obvious plot correlations aside, I haven't studied the French Revolution since it was a required part of the curriculum in junior high.

So I guess they were equally frustrating experiences, no?

Had nothing to play so I picked this up with GCU.
What on earth is GCU? I keep trying to think of games but I'm drawing a huge blank.

I thought he meant some kind of store credit, like Gamestop, or maybe one of those UK stores. I'm still curious either way, though.

^Too many vowels for my brain to handle.

As for who I voted for, it was the Nunya-Biiswaks ticket.  

Looking this up was the most horrifying experience I've ever had. There's some messed up stuff on the internet. And I never did find those candidates, are you sure you're spelling their names right?

Great, now I had to try a bunch of different languages for that Sailor Moon opening...and yeah, Cantonese actually worked well there. Granted, even the Japanese doesn't seem to work as well as it probably should, IMO. The song always came off as a "music box with lyrics", and some of the inflections try to mimic, but the effect feels forced and it kind of loses its...'sing-song-iness', for lack of a better word. At least in spots. The Contonese and English nailed it at almost every spot, though, but then English seemed to emphasis the guitar more, so I think the Cantonese version is the best one I've heard so far. I'm gonna have to check the italian version next.

EDIT: There is no "italian version", they actually made original songs for each season's opening. They aren't bad, either, but they're definitely different. Same with the Brazilian version (or whatever language they use, I can't spell it, and I keep hitting the wrong keys), except it's actually pretty bad.

France didn't even try...

13 episodes total.

Batch #3 is 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13

...Goddamnit...
13  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: September 23, 2016, 09:40:30 PM
It's at least a 4-parter, though, right? Then again, I got so confused when it was still in production...

Princess Maker 2 Refined coming to steam Oct. 3rd.

I am excited. So excited that I flew off the handle when I saw the broken engrish intro text scroll, not realizing that they otherwise farmed out a fan-translation (possibly the one I had been following, since that has now disappeared completely). The rest of trailer and screens they've shown are fine. This game is really ****ing good, and I also kinda hope they release one or more of the sequels (at least PM3, since that sounds like they beefed it up in a number of ways, while still retaining the awesome adventure mode that I know for a fact aren't in 4 & 5).

I just watched Shin Sekai Yori episode 8

"Two years have passed since the camping incident and the relationship between the friends have changed dramatically."

-understatement of the century.

I love that series, despite the fact that watching it is like being punched in the gut over and over again.

Oh hey, I still remember looking forward to that series with bated breath. That was a miistake and a half, thanks to those "gut-punches" you mentioned. Granted, that whole anime season turned out to be one big disappointment one way or another...
