 Cell saga is my favorite DBZ story arc.  

Just re-watched the whole frieza saga after well over a decade with no DBZ in my life. moving onto cell this evening... I am guily as charged sir!

I also love Sailor Moon and am vocal about it. I love it so much I've planned on getting a sailor moon tattoo for a long time now. Darian is the man, and sailor mars was my first (and only) cartoon crush. As a child I was disheartened by the fact I couldn't really marry ms. mars someday.

I consider Outlaw Star, Chobits, Slayers and Moon Phase to rank amongst my more favored guilty pleasures for various reasons. Moon phase was just too adorable to resist!

just got around to watching the first 2 eps of attack on titan. gotta say, in my opinion, they seemed to have handled turning this into an anime REAL well! I thought I would be somewhat disapointed because of how much I am enjoying the manga but I'm happy to report that is not the case at all. Although I do have to agree with Dice about the awkward blood bath/rain animation at the end of episode 1... for such a beautifully done episode, what an excruciatingly terrible way to convey a blood splatter... really bugged me brief as it was...

while i'm still very early on in both the manga and (obviously) the show I can't believe how engrossing the material is.

in other news, I reported a few posts ago I decided to watch some dbz after the recent crossover eps left me fiending for some goku in my life. i heard such horrible things about the newer "kai" re-release of the series but I must disagree. kai kicks ass in this DBZ fans opinion. end of story! kai will be how I indulge the re-watching of some of this dated classic for sure. waaaaay faster pace = waaaaaay better DBZ to me! But in all honesty, nostalgic value aside, holy crud is this just a bad freakin' show... don't get me wrong, subjectively I love it... objectively speaking though I really can't understand how it fostered the acclaim it has... its just... bad...

EDIT: Shit.  Xillia has me worried in that I really don't think a battle system is going to make me as happy as the pinacle that Graces reached.  Made worse by the glaring flaws in Xillia's battle system from the get-go.

That is my biggest concern as well. I LOVED the graces F battle system. Going back to something more abyss-ish will really feel like de-evolvotion  to a certain extent.

Kinda torn about the CE. Not that it isn't fantastic, because it certainly is, but I have enough crap just lying around that I don't know if a Milla statue would get any use at all. To be perfectly honest, the only collector's bonus item that I've gotten any real mileage out of is that mousepad from Agarest War 1, and I use it proudly to this day.

I still use my agarest mousepad too!!

I'm with you on the Avengers Klyde.

They are lame.

Yea, I can't explain it really. I know western-comic-heroes sort of fit with my taste of over the top and fantastic fiction but I have hated most any I've been exposed to since I was a little kid. Before I had any idea what anime was, while other kids were all into there super-heroes, I was too busy with voltron, ronin warriors and sailor moon.... man you really are NOT the cool kid in the lunch line when you are sporting a sailor moon thermos in contrast to all the spiderman, batman and super hero beverage containers.

None the less... heeeeeeeerrre is ze' hulk!

Trying to convince my GF to buy Soul Hackers, but she only likes RPGs in medieval settings. Boooooo. 


That is exactly what I used to say-LoL

No joke, it really was SMT/Persona that changed that. Fantasy/Medieval may still be my typically favorite flavor but I'll take these twisted sci-jpop-punk-modern-fantastic settings any day!!

Thats right... Sci-Jpop-punk-modern-fantastic is how I'm (boldly) classifying it! Sticklers for proper genre placement hold your tongues!!

Klyde, when I finally hit that massive lotto jackpot I secretly yearn to win, I am so getting my tattoo done by you.

It doesn't have to be a massive jackpot D, in all honesty if your project was geeky enough to entice me you would probably just have to pay travel expenses and I would only charge you the cost of materials for the tattooing.

And with that said... last night was many many hours of drawing a geeky tattoo that DID NOT entice me... bitter sweet for me as the project and client are cool but I freakin' HATE super heroes... and while batman is one thing (no hate for the b-man, just no love) I really can't take the avengers... well now I have full avengers back-piece that I will be working on for the better part of the next year. Starting with hulk.... *groan*
683  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: April 13, 2013, 08:30:35 PM
you're amazing klyde.  its awesome you can make that even without the batman love.

Your too kind Dice. Thank you.

In truth I'm just so OCD with my tattoo work I pour that effort into everything.

Case and point, here is what happens when someone comes to me for something "simple and small" like two bows (well it started out simple and small, I swear!!)

Got Soul Hackers.

I like how visually pleasing hacking is.

You get everything early! Phooey on you!! I'm jealous enough waiting for the rest of Attack on Titan to come in the mail-LoL

The clan/Atma symbols from DDS are a great choice, they're very iconic but subtle.


(You can see it by her collar bone.)

Oooo boy... maybe the mongoose was right and i'd best wait to play DDS before making the decision... I would really like to sport the symbol done just like that in the same spot if I dig the game and character.

Man, I really am gonna be playing nothing but SMT stuff for the rest of this year... that was a joke before but now I'm not so sure.

Even here, when I write about it here, I know most of you don't really give a damn, and I'm honestly just stroking my own ego, but I can't stop doing it anyway. I feel a need to talk about it, but know I shouldn't really. Basically, I'm sorry for always bragging about my feats, especially if it comes off as bragging. I'll try to cut back on it some...

Dude in terms of posting stuff that nobody cares about, you're never going to beat me :P
Well, I always pegged your ramblings as simply humorous anecdotes more or less, a joke about real events. Plus, you're random about what you write, so it always comes off as something new. My shit's getting tires, I feel.

There is abso-freakin'-lutely nothing wrong with posting meaningless crap or stroking our egos. Hell, if we don't do the stoking who will!??

On that note I love D's "log of strength"... I do my anaerobic training vicariously through his posts-LoL

And Mesh, you make me feel like "I'm not the only one" with a great deal of your "ramblings". Ramble on my friend.

And lastly here is my contribution to the meaningless and unimportant
This was really fun to get to do even though I am not a batman fan by any means.

Ahhhhh you lucky folk (dice and kevadu) are making me jealous! I have to order (and wait) for everything after volume 2 of AoT!!! (manga availability in my area is pretty poor) and I'm already hooked...

In other (current) anime/manga related business I watched the first ep of Gargantia today and can safely say I'll be tuning into the rest of that. The pretty space battle that kicked stuff off was a wee bit too much sci-fi-flash for my taste (a subjective matter) but everything else seemed reeeeeal promising.

Good golly guys, I gotta say. After having suffered through all of Persona Trinity Souls, subs don't seem troublesome at all to me now. I actually wonder why I really had a problem with em in the first place...

Lastly.... THAT FREAKIN' DBZxTORIKOxONE PIECE crap totally made me crave DBZ! LoL! For the first time in like 15 years I decided to re-watch some. Nostalgia at its finest, rivaled only by sailor moon for me... I love it.
687  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: April 13, 2013, 02:43:49 PM
I would wait until you play all the SMT's before you decide. The games are very symbol heavy and you may find a favorite later on.

More then likely the best advice ^^

I've got Devil Survivor (most of 1 and all of 2), Devil Summoner 2 and Digital Devil Saga (1 and 2) to go before I will have gotten through all the SMT stuff on my agenda (and of course everything that comes out between now and then).

On a completely unrelated note I am pleased as punch to report P2 EP is treating me just right! Really happy to see the difficulty was adjusted to provide (somewhat) of a challenge in combat in contrast to IS. I really can't believe these games were developed so close to one another, as EP is really striking me a step up.

EDIT: I never use guides or faqs... never even check em to see what I've missed after I'm done really.. having just looked up Mara from P3 because I had no recollection of such I am beginning to wonder just how much hidden or optional stuff I have missed out on. I am starting to feel like a second run through of some games may be necessary for me (waaaaay down the line).

And lastly.... I'm not even kidding about the tattoo... anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Magatama or the pressturn icon.  Something iconic definitely.  cj_iwakura would probably have good ideas.

I like the idea of the press turn icon to be honest. I'd get that. Or, there's lots of symbols everywhere, like in Digital Devil Saga - the Embryon etc. all have symbols.

I wish I could get Klyde to do tattooes for me. He'd totally understand when I ask for totally geeky ones like this. ;)

I think I am leaning pretty heavily toward the press turn icon, it would fit around my elbow nicely... the only problem is I can't tattoo my own elbow (obviously) and that means I gotta find another artist to do it... that means I gotta wait! Oh well, good things to come I suppose.




Well in that case, go minimalist, not something tacky looking like that One Piece thing.




Also, I recorded some of OG Soul Hackers the other day(as well as Devil Summoner 1/Raidou 2) if there's any interest.

http://www.twitch.tv/cj_iwakura/b/390070348

I completely agree on the one piece tattoo and appreciate you for entertaining my question in spite of your personal feelings on the matter.

I love so many of the symbols from the games, but with details like they sport I would need to use a large area to render something like and make it look good. The symbol you have posted would require at least a full shoulder blade or better to look and age appropriately.

Cellular migration of pigment (tattoos spreading and looking nasty the older you get) is only a concern if you cram details too close togeather. Regardless I thank you again

And double- thank you for getting me a wee bit more excited for tuesday/monday midnight as well!! :)

Woo-hoo my pre-order is in! If I have a good week business wise I am totally grabbing a second one of these to keep sealed. Bamco is really knocking it out of the park with their LE's (ni no's was awesome, exclusiveness and availability aside).

great suggestions guys!

That is precisely the direction I am thinking. I just haven't arrived at "the one" yet...

Well, I'll steal this from another thread...



And suggest you do something similar, but with Mara.

I don't have the arm space left for that-LoL

And Mara....? Seriously?? Isn't/wasn't mara the blob-like thing in Nocturne?.... That would be a tattoo I would love to do and throw in my portfolio but I don't think I would want to wear that one...LoL

I'm not fond of tattoos, so I'm the wrong person to ask. Obviousness of the permanency aside, it also puts ink into your bloodstream. That doesn't sit well with me.

Unless someone is tattooing waaaaaay wrong no ink gets in your blood. You would have to go sub-dermal for that to happen. The pigment is left in the third to fifth layers of the skin. Now the liquid which remains does leave your body via plasma and blood but is comprised of safer substances in regard to your body than crap most people eat on a daily basis. Mind you that is taking for granted you are getting tattooed by a responsible artist. There are PLENTY of risks involved if proper practices are not adhered to, equipment or ink is of poor quality, or plain and simple (the scariest scenario of all) the artist is just an idiot and working somewhere without regulation.

As for the permanence, well I actually hear you on that note... Although I'm a tattoo artist, for years I didn't have many tattoos at all. Now after doing it for nearly a decade I just see things differently. There is nothing I can't cover-up and removal is such an accessible option they don't even really seem permanent to me any longer.

Tattoos have just become a matter of fun for me. I don't take them seriously unless they are on my clients-LoL

Soooooo, with that said, lets forget I'm asking about tattoos here and let me just ask you what you feel is some of the most iconic imagery from the SMT franchise.....
