Well going to be interesting to see what you think as you are going to jumping in smack dab in the middle of an invasion arc. A quick summation to try and get you up to speed as to wtf is going on:

Code:
A giant invasion of neighbors began a few chapters ago, beginning with a massive number of trion soldiers (non-humanoid neighbors that are sort of the equivalent of robots). After several waves of trion soldiers, the humanoid neighbors in charge of the invasion managed to pinpoint their targets (C-ranked Border Agents) and they joined the battle to both ensure capture of their targets and to distract the most powerful members of Border. The last chapter ended with one of the humanoid neighbors with a black trigger (aka a completely broken weapon) engaging in combat against one of the top ranked Border teams with one member of the Border team seemingly able to predict his attacks due to that member's side effect (minor psychic power/enchanced sense that some people with high amounts of Trion have).

If you have any other questions feel free to ask them here and I'll do my best to help.

Ah, you should give World Trigger another shot if you didn't like it in the beginning. It got better and it is imo the second best series in Jump. At the very least it is better than Naruto and Bleach. The others....yeah those aren't that good.

Summary of the first few chapters of One-Punch Man: Office Worker saves a kid from a monster and decides he will become a superhero and spends several years training his body (using conventional methods) so hard that his hair falls out, and by the time the series starts he has become so powerful that he can finish all fights with a single punch. Then he meets Genos who is in awe of his strength and becomes his "disciple", then they join the superhero association. And I think that is about it in terms of important plot.

Well I'm glad I finished watching Agents of Shield because it suddenly got good in the last three or so episodes.

Code:
I don't get the last few minutes as I don't think that Ward is a traitor for a second, so I don't get why he would kill off five SHIELD agents just to go undercover with a guy who was already captured....maybe he used icer rounds and blood packets? I dunno.

Because I exist to solve the mysteries of the universe, and I cannot allow people to simply leave a mystery unsolved because they want to keep it a mystery. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!...or something like that.
35  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: April 09, 2014, 07:09:44 AM
To be fair,
Code:
the most boring character on the show just turned traitor (and the episode even featured a triple cross for what its worth). Not that I couldn't see the outcome coming from a mile away (and I definitely know that there's at least one more traitor running around at this point, but I suspect that they wont cash in that revelation until the next major confrontation since he's probably gonna take over the roster slot for the other traitor until he turns back as he's a 'double agent' all along while Mr. Replacement suddenly reveals that he was a double agent too),
but at least the show is trying to go somewhere with this.

Of course the real reason why shit's going down is because there's a movie to tie into now (and not as halfassedly as Thor 2).
Oh the most boring character does something mildly interesting. That is good to know that.....ummm huh. I'm not sure who the most boring character on the show is. It could literally be any character other than Coulson. And he is only discounted because he is interesting in the movies. I think that reaction is probably a good sign that I have no interest in the show at this point. I'll probably watch another episode despite that in the next week or so.

Dragon Age origins

Nothing to be ashamed there.
If you had said DA2 though...
Hey, I said DA2 on this very thread a few pages ago!  Aveline Vallen is a saint!  A SAINT!!!

A saint with the jaw of a man. You heard me !
So? I still enjoyed DA2 more than DAO. That's right I said it.

Anyone decided on who they'll go after first, based on the introductions and demo playthrough?  I'm thinking Fuuko, myself.  Not sure why besides the fact that she just seems so charmingly normal (relatively speaking, of course).  I guess I'm weird that I go for either the normal girls or the crazy ones (bonus points if they end up being both).
Ugh despite loving the game, I can't say any of the girls have really grabbed me yet. Out of the four that are available in the demo, I am thinking that Chloe might be the first one I go for. However I can't say that that is a strong preference.

Weekly Shonen Jump impressions before the scanlators release next Monday's issue.

One Piece
Code:
God damn it, I really wish that I had people to discuss One Piece with because this chapter was amazing. Dressrosa is in chaos, Donflamingo's plans are up in smoke, and Sabo is making his move. Oh and Kyrios beheaded Donflamingo. I don't actually think he is dead (either the body that was just beheaded is actually a puppet or he can use his strong power to reconnect lost limbs), but it was a great follow up scene where basically the events exactly duplicated what happened ten years ago with the set up.

World Trigger
Great chapter, more world building and some entertaining fights.

Naruto
Goddamn this arc is boring, can we just finish this series up already?

All You Need is Kill
Great chapter very emotional chapter, and I look forward to seeing where things go from here.

Dragonball One Shot
Really? This is something that needed to happen? *sigh* The TV special for Burdock was much more entertaining and this was way too Supermanny for my tastes.

Stealth Symphony
Most of the chapter was kind of meh, but I did greatly enjoy the exchange with Troma towards the end.
39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 08, 2014, 07:03:11 AM
Huh.  Not what I would have expected, to be honest.  Not that the option is unwelcome...

O.o Really? I'm curious as to why you wouldn't expect it. Considering the tone of the game, seemed like it was almost a forgone conclusion it would have that as an ending.

I don't even remember how long it's been since I posted here, last. I could look, but I like the mystery better. 
Bah, mysteries exist to be solved! The answer is a few days short of three years.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The official waifu thread on: April 07, 2014, 07:22:45 AM
I want Kevadu to be mine, but he resists all my attempts.  For the best, I'd probably just drag him around Japan mercilessly and convince him to start an XSeed-like company.
I'll volunteer to be your waifu (well husbando) Dice to save Kevadu. Although I will not be able to start and XSeed-like company.
42  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: April 07, 2014, 07:18:00 AM
Watched an episode of Agents of Shield recently (the train one) because I just learned from this thread that there were new episodes. I'm 3-4 episodes behind now....and I really don't care enough to try and catch up. The show just is not grabbing me. I may try and catch some more of the new episodes, but I dunno.
43  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: April 07, 2014, 07:15:24 AM
Playing DW8:XL and it really isn't doing anything for me right now. Not sure why it isn't either. Oh well, I'll keep playing it till Conception 2 comes out, then I'll put it on the backburner and platinum it later.

just beat FFII, so now I'll move on to current games in progress, well, one of Radiant Historia or Trails in the Sky. I can't decide.
I vote Radiant Historia.
44  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: So... Board Games? on: April 05, 2014, 07:55:27 AM
So two things of minor importance.

1. Today is International Table Top Game Day! So everyone go out and play board games with your friends or with total strangers! Because everyone is doing it!

2. Allegiance: A Realm Divided is a kickstarter for a board game (well maybe more of a card game) that I think looks amazing and needs support in order to get funded, so all of you go and give them your money!
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs you're ashamed to like? on: April 05, 2014, 06:27:37 AM
I can't really say there are any RPGs that I am ashamed to like. I mean my favorite RPG is Ar Tonelico and I will proudly proclaim that. If we are using the definition of poorly received games that I like, then I am another Dragon Age 2 fan. I greatly preferred it to DAO. I also kinda like Rogue Galaxy, only a little though. I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of any.

The closest thing to shame I feel from any games I play are eroge games which I just try to avoid to bringing up with most people. However since other people in the thread have admitted to liking some I see no harm in admitting I do occasionally play them.....can't recall any I particularly like that are considered bad atm though.

And Ranadiel- I too kinda liked Last Rebellion.  I stand by my review of it.  It had potential and could have been a good game, but ended up mediocre.  I've played worse.  
.....This is my first post in this thread. How the f did you get me confused with Arhkaos when I didn't even have a post near his? For the record, I am not ashamed to like Last Rebellion because I did not like it.
