  1. Read it quite a while ago and loved it (What's it been, like 3 years now?). I re-play the summer vacation area a lot since I loved when the MC starts coming out of her shell. From that one screenshot, it looks like the translation's very good, too.
  2. 蜜壺 is a fairly commonly used innuendo in Japanese, and honestly, it doesn't read so bad in Japanese. When I hear "honey pot" I generally think of the computing kind.
  3. 無言の土下座 Orz

    1. TsukiBaka


      Glas to see you around :) *pats back*

  4. I am still here. Just... Give me a bit longer while I muster motivation for the last bit.

    1. Seiso Senshi

      *kick* Hello? Somebody home? :mare:Your counter stopped moving

  5. Shino from Haruka ni Aogi, Uruwashi no. The story of a girl who has to break out of the shell she so cherished in order to protect it, only to realize maybe the world outside isn't all bad.
  6. I have no problem with Louise. If anything, it's Kaito I dislike. And it's not even that, since I tend to end up liking characters that frustrate me; the writing was just so terrible in the first volume, I have a hard time wanting to reach for the second.
  7. I have no idea, lol. I like coming up with gimmicks, but I don't always have a story to fill it with. Perhaps it would be easier for them to be able to remember everything that happened. Then it could be in kinetic novel form from the view point of the MC as he reminisces over the previous runs as he comes across the various challenges in his final run. Or perhaps he doesn't remember, but each run leaves behind a memento which he happens upon. He doesn't realize what it is, but the readers are shown in a flashback what the memento entails. Or, or, maybe it could be a back and forth between the
  8. Started Seinen by Ishida Ira. I feel like there was something of a mysterious? mood to the beginning of Shounen, which I liked, but that isn't really there any more, perhaps due to Midou Shizuka no longer being a major player in the story (at least, not yet).
  9. Zero no Tsukaima, the series whose author is dead, right? I see they recently decided to continue the series with another author... I'm surprised anyone can get invested in that series. I hear a lot of good stuff about it, but vol 1 was terrible enough that I had trouble finishing it.
  10. Well, this trilogy is fairly abnormal among "light" novels. It's supposedly the series that became inspiration for Demonbane, etc.
  11. Yes, includes a lot of light novels, though I can't really think of anything with art that suggestive. Manga, on the other hand... I may decide to leave behind Koe de Oshigoto, if that's the case. >_>
  12. My problem here is that no one seems to ever go into detail regarding the retcon. It all ways seems to be "there was a retcon, thus it sucked", and never says where the retcon happened. I would read over the whole of Meikyuu and Rakuen again to check, but I don't have the games on me right now O_o
  13. Yeah, one of the things you always hear about when it comes to Michiru is that "premise so bad, they had to retcon her". Once again, I'll offer the other side of the argument that 1) I myself never saw any retcon and 2) no one discussing the game in Japanese seem to ever mention there being a retcon.
  14. I think you may be misinformed. Last time I did a quick search for Michiru in Japanese, I found 0 mention of any retcons, and 0 complaints about the "pseudoscience". These opinions, from what I've seen, seem to only come from people who only played the English version, and I myself remember no retconning in Meikyuu. I also dare say that Michiru is the most popular girl among the crowd in Japan, supported by the fact that she's the only character to have a spin-off title in her name. *In fact, in a popularity poll, she was 2nd behind (who else) Kazuki.
  15. Finished Gate side story 2. About done with Jinrui 5. Next up, either Jinrui 6, wherever I left off with Irregular at Magic High School, Hakomari 2, or something else entirely. My backlog on LNs only ever seem to grow, as I buy them at a faster rate than I read them >_>
  16. I need some way to ship all the manga/books I bought back to the US. (I haven't counted recently, but last I checked, I had >600 vol and that was about half a year ago). What, in your experience, would be the best way to accomplish this?
  17. Unrelatedly, do you read Light Novels? I'd like to see what you think of The Keios Hexa Trilogy (Black Rod, Blood Jacket, Blightlights Holyland).
  18. Mimi wo Sumaseba (Whispers of the Heart) is not by Miyazaki, it's by Yoshifumi Kondo (animation director on most pre-1995 Ghibli movies and long collaborator of Miyazaki and Takahata; sadly he died a premature death in 1998 before making any other movie, despite being thought of as 'the next Miyazaki'). I do wholeheartedly recommend everyone to watch it though. I think you'd like it Tiago, it has romance and it's relatively light-hearted. And also extremely beautiful. I meant to say Miyazaki/Ghibli. It's close enough >_> Technically, it's not all wrong since Miyazaki did have a lot to do
  19. Why you haven't yet watched everything Miyazaki is beyond me. He's the go-to for anyone looking into anime films. A few of his that has yet to be mentioned: Whispers of the Heart (also occasionally known as Valley of the Heart, If You Listen Closely, etc.) and the recent Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises). I know you said no, but I have to second The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. And since you don't have either that or Summer Wars under your belt, I imagine you don't have Sennen Joyuu (Millennium Actress) either. I just watched Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda today and I liked it, so I'd recommend that
  20. OP - Butter-fly for Digimon Adventures, maybe? ED - Secret Base for Anohana. Took me 14 years to come back to Japan. Lyric is relevant.
  21. My point is that they're already gone, and I didn't even realize Such is the ephemerality of the cicada T.T
  22. 耳年増 is definitely a common stereotype in Japanese media. Personally, I've never really cared. I'm almost surprised to find people seem to be more often against the all-virgins thing, as I personally find the "first time" thing rather desirable. Not to mention it makes NTR that much more satisfying.
  23. As loud as they are, I honestly don't find them at all annoying. To such point that I didn't realize I had stopped hearing them until I read this topic -.-
  24. Finished vol 1-14 of Kimi to Boku. Can a couple freaking get together already -.- Disappointed in the art style change over time. It starts looking suspiciously similar to Hourou Musuko's art, and I don't like it. Don't get me wrong; I liked Hourou Musuko and don't mind the art there, just the style is unnerving when applied here. Finished vol 3 of Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san. It spent 4 consecutive flash pages showing the MC crying over ramen. 4. That's 8 pages of a girl crying. Over ramen.
  25. Personally, I can't quite empathize, but I know plenty of people who like songs they can't understand the lyrics to, so I imagine it's supposed to be pretty normal.
