...who the heck attacks bikes? Like, maybe that'd be a city problem, but then again, you'd think a city person would have more respect for a bike's importance as a necessary means of transportation...you'd think they'd just steal it instead...

Anyways, my face has been tight all day for some reason, so it kinda hurts to smile. I guess the attempts have been making my face look contorted or something, since people seem to think I'm in a bad mood or something despite feeling great today.

No, I agree, that looks screwed up, and that's because they almost look alike but the differences make it look really weird. Uncanny valley and all that.

Ugh...everybody acts like a fucking retard with things I can do and prove I can handle on a frequent basis. Yet when it comes to the things I need help with - more complex things that my ADD, anxiety, and general poor memory have proven to be a problem on a regular basis - then I'm apparently the mature adult who should know better.

In unrelated news, I left a bottle of juice in a backpack that I haven't used in two months...for two months. Nothing in or around the backpack was damaged, but now it smells awful...that also explains the terrible smell I had been smelling in and around my room this week.

Knowing Gundam X was one of the first to be confirmed as returning made my heart leap for Joy. It's my second favorite full Gundam series after the original.

...because maybe the Family thing and/or other aspects were more interesting to them? Because I seriously, didn't find the action segments to be nearly as focused on as they were in the Digimon movie, which is the only aspect of the Digimon Movie I remember and probably the only aspect worth remembering besides the gorgeous animation...it feels more like he took the same general set up as just a framing device and then built a different story where he focused on aspects that were glazed over in the previous movie...

Kinda like how I liked The Girl Who Leapt Through Time because it didn't dwell on all of the usual Time-Travel tropes. Instead it mostly used it to set up the characters and stories it wanted to tell, and mostly succeeded in telling them well as far as I'm concerned - maybe not entirely, I agree that it had some problems towards the end. But what it did well it did really well, and I don't begrudge it for what it didn't do because there are other movies I could go and watch where they do those things. [Note, upon further review, this paragraph doesn't seem to make sense in context to what Dice said, but fuck it, I'm leaving it here]

I actually felt like Summer Wars was a story about the family relationship and everything else was an extraneous plot element meant to provide emphasise and contextualize the conflicts going on within the family. I felt like they tied in well with the themes and didn't need them to be any more fleshed out than they were, because they simply weren't the point, unlike the Digimon movie where most of the ideas seem to be pulled from.

Just FYI, I didn't find Lightning hard to relate to. I just found her boring, especially compared to all of the far more interesting and likeable characters in the cast. I feel the ensemble wouldn't be complete without her, though, so I'm glad she was in the game.

...I can't believe I'm continuing the FFXIII tangent when there's a perfectly good Tales tangent right above it...;_;

FF9 and 12 are the only ones I'd want to go HD...and deep down I'd want FFXI to have a flat fee or something so I can play that at my leisure...

...I was gonna say something else more substantial, but I forgot what it was, so now this post is a "yay remakes" post. :T

Blah, guess I'll write it here:

I really gotta write more. I come up with lots of ideas for stories and run them through my head, but always forget to go the next step and actually write the stories down. This year I've been at least trying to get into the habit of writing notes down so I can keep everything straight, which helps, since I got about over 20 stories rattling around up there...including some really long ones...dunno if I'll ever even get to those...

Anyways, I guess my big goal for next year would be to finish writing at least one of my stories (poss. two since I have some short ones), along with the usual "draw more often" that's been my goal for the past 3 years and will probably be for many years to come since I can never really draw enough (but I'd like the output to be "substantial" sooner than later...).

I've played SaGa Frontier. It was the good kind of frustrating. I didn't even know frustration could be good before then. =P

But FF Legends II was pretty awesome, I really dug that one. Romancing SaGa also really seems like my bag.

Hoping the new one is better than Unlimited SaGa...

Edit: saw the Legend of Legacy trailer. All the random crap popping up in real time looks like it'd drive me insane very quickly...think I'll pass on that...

I've kept to Amagi brilliant Park and I've been satisfied; it's pretty damn funny.

I've also been watching a bunch of old Ghibli stuff.  Might post reactions to stuff soon enough.

Oh, the guy who did Summer Wars and Wolf Children has a new film announced:
Bakemono no Ko....  It's about a fuzzy beast.... I think director-sama is a furry ...fur sure.

And a pretty hardcore fur because I swear I've seen those character designs before...because I'm getting flashbacks to a bunch gay muscle kemono/Furry doujinshi I stumbled upon and couldn't get away from fast enough thanks a lot for have no filters e-hentai...now excuse me while I go huddle in a corner...

I'm holding out until July at the Earliest, but it's gonna be tough, I agree...

Urobuchi didn't write Psycho Pass 2 so not surprised it turned out to be a train wreck

Oh wow, you're totally right, Gen wasn't involved at all as far as I can tell. O_o I take back what I said, then.
1064  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: December 12, 2014, 11:53:36 AM
From what I've heard, Urobuchi went full-on troll for Psycho-Pass 2. I'm never a fan of being trolled. Disappointing, since I'd really like to see Psycho-Pass 1.

Anyways, I'm caught up (sort of, I'm a week behind because of Crunchyroll, but I'm at a decent stopping point) with World Trigger, which has been interesting, but really slow. Hopefully it gets the story rolling by the end of the season...

Also started Log Horizon cuz I was bored and that...also is sort of taking its time building things up. It's still interesting, but it hasn't quite grabbed me the way I hoped it would. I'll still watch some more, though.

EDIT 2: I watched more and I think I'm coming around now. I really like the characters and we're seeing more about how people are reacting to the "apocalypse". I especially like Shiroe, I can relate to him quite a bit, especially as far as online interaction goes (and we both took CAD...).

Some people like slow ass tank battle systems because it gives them time to think. An action RPG might feel a bit intimidating to someone who doesn't play games.

I agree with this. I loved Kingdom Hearts as the first RPG I got into...which I played after I worked my way through Devil May Cry 3. And I'm not talking about the Special Edition...
