  1. Trolling, The HMN Crew, and You

    Ninja's by Plk_Lesiak. Yeah, for people actually trying to have a discussion only to have that discussion drowned out by those who are bored and want to just be disruptive, it's incredibly annoying. That's why there's a chatter forum made specifically to fuck around (go at it, not judging) in. But again like Plk_Lesiak said there's an element of mucking around in every discussion, and it's all about where the line is drawn. I'm very happy with where the mods currently have the line, to be honest
  2. The "care" thing? It's not so much an editing problem as it is a "english is different in different parts of the world" problem. Check out this video
  3. Bloody Yanks in Yankland butchering the language
  4. I actually rarely hear "care" used in this way. It should be "mind" if you want to be picky about it. The reply will usually be either "I don't mind" or "no". "Care" means something slightly different and I wouldn't use it in this context, but that's being incredibly picky about it.
  5. Anybody playing Re;lord?

    One of the fun things about reading fiction is we get to "know" people with many different viewpoints. It has the benefit of increasing our understanding and our empathy. And for a long time this was just something said with nothing behind it, so it's good that studies are starting to observe the same thing, psychological study though, so take it with a grain of salt ohohoho : The study, conducted by Kingston University in London, found that readers were more likely to act in a socially acceptable manner compared to those who preferred watching television. Instead, TV lovers came across as less friendly and less understanding of others’ views. But, no ordinary book will do because it turns out the type of literature you choose also has a huge impact on your emotional intelligence. The study revealed that fiction fans showed more positive social behaviour while readers of drama and romance novels were found to be the most empathic. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/people-who-read-books-are-nicer-kingston-university-study-fiction-a7721096.html So when fiction helps us delve into the minds of people who we don't usually associate with, that's an excellent result. That being said the writing becomes terrible when people with certain viewpoints get inserted into a novel for the sole purpose of being knocked down. Often their views are painted as superficial or wrong or backward, and the superior views win out easily. This sort of horrible writing is often called "stop pushing your bloody agenda" and tends to become annoying (depending on your viewpoint obviously). That being said, a right wing nationalist protagonist who likes to scream "sieg heil Zaalrant"? I expect either sillyness or some kind of agenda pushing from that. But you've convinced me to give it a whirl
  6. Becoming a Teacher: Design my Lesson Plans

    2) Study ancient salt statues 3) Encourage everyone to be salty about salt statues 4) Get class to make new statues from all the salt produced 5) Sell statues for $$$ and keep all money for yourself 6) Get accused of "exploitation of labour" 7) Receive incredibly unfair trial 8 ) Get sentenced to life in prison 9) Write salty memoirs
  7. Moe

    As someone who's a big fan of healing slice of life (Iyashikei), I really don't like it. Ever since K-On, the focus on "cute girls doing cute things" often takes away from world building and character building and leaves a shallow shell of a show. So there's been this sudden explosion of healing slice of life, but most of it is moe crap. The best piece of Iyashikei I've come across is Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou and that was definitely not moe.
  8. Spring 2018 Anime Discussion

    Heh ... ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Does anyone here wistfully look back at the conversations they enjoyed while waiting for trains to pass and think "I'm having so much fun right now I wish I could stay in this moment forever"? Well apparently you're not the only weirdo living among us because Fumikiri Jikan airs on the 10th. Based on the not very popular at all manga, this anime will showcase the boring conversations young women have as they wait at railroad crossings (because the "conversations" young men have usually involves a mean prank quickly followed by the terrified screams of the pranker as he gets hurled into the path of the train). But seriously I'm a little curious. A boring premise doesn't always mean a boring show, and it'll be interesting to see how they handle it.
  9. Anime with an adult couple

    Oh crap, thanks for reminding me. I've been meaning to watch this anime forever and never got around to it People keep telling me it's amazing :3 _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Ah My Goddess: An oldy but a goody. When a college student accidentally phones the Goddess help line, a flippant wish means that she now has to stay by his side forever. A slow and romantic slice of life with Goddessy and demonic antics. It's one of my favourites. Couple featured is Keichii Morisato and Belldandy EDIT: A few people have called AMG a harem, but Keiichi only has eyes for Belldandy so I don't see why :S.
  10. I am the Latest

    Welcome to Fuwa. That knife of yours looks really quite sharp, so I'll be standing over here behind @mitchhamilton ... just in case
  11. Anime with an adult couple

    The Great Passage - Based off the award winning novel, this action packed anime details the trials and tribulations of compiling a dictionary ... also featuring an adult relationship sub-plot between Majime Mitsuya and Hayashi Kaguya.
  12. Looking for a good VN with an edgelord mc

    When I think of "edgy" I tend to think of being passive-aggressive in a provocative way, like being incredibly sarcastic. Or just being plain contrarian (everybody likes Naruto so I'll say it's crap to be edgy). An edgeLORD is someone who is Lord of all edges, so naturally somebody who hoards pointy things to the point of absurdity who engages in this behaviour all the time. FSN protagonist is so not an edgelord
  13. Kino's Journey 2017

    The quality is also inconsistent. 2017 episode 1 was okay, episode 2 was quite bad (it doesn't help that the same story existed in 2003 but done much better).
