    Omg I made a signature! Yay! I gotta be honest, i felt so happy once i insert that code thingy and the signature appeared lol. I'm well aware that my signature is pretty basic and easy to to do, but still, its so cool! Aria's in it and its pretty! Since i made the effort to download photoshop and try to figure this thing out, maybe down the line I can make something more unique after spending some time playing around with it gradually. It still seems pretty intimidating [Photoshop], i've only ever used Lightroom for photography. I've always admired some of the signatures on fuwa and mal, but i think what motivated me to try it out was after I watched an episode of Aria [origination] today, and went emotionally bonkers and felt the need to express my love for this anime in some small way. Aria's always been quite special to me .

    You mean the comic? no i don't sorry, i took it of a reddit discussion [https://www.reddit.com/r/japan/comments/1d03v2/what_is_a_gaijin_hunter_exactly/] Okay found it, http://www.charismaman.com/. cheers!
  4. What Are You Watching: Movie and TV Show Edition

    No I have yet! I actually rewatched the original bladerunner in preparation to watch the new one, then i lost interest in watching the new one, for no reason at all . I really enjoyed re-watching the original though. Apart from the great script, the cinematography, costume design and production design were amazing. Also, the general ambience of the movie, that suffocation, clutter and congestion really pulled me, they really brought the bladerunner world and the state of it, to life. I think thats the thing with older movies, since they didn't have amazing cgi, every detail had to be given so much attention to help with the viewers immersion, just look at this movie and the original star wars. [i know you didn't ask me, i sort of went off on a tangent, gomen! ] I think i'll watch the new one this weekend, hope its interesting.

    @Dergonu "Office lady" and a "piano girl" [assuming that she said yes to you asking her out] lol, congrats on the experiences . Yeah i'll like to think that gaijin hunting is a myth, your situation seems more believable since randomly meeting someone and hitting it off for the night happens anywhere, that's just an organic connection. Rather that gaijin hunters pursuing their foreign prey with fervour just for the sake of them having foreign blood . Thanks for sharing! [i used up all my likes for today ].
  6. What Anime are you watching now?

    I've been watching Dragonball super recently, a lot of it. Dragonball got me into manga when i was a kid, i loved collecting the tanks monthly and placing them on my shelf side by side and watch the pictures on the sleeves connect [yes i loved the story too ]. I loved watching Goku grow, meeting new friends and characters, going on adventures and facing off against life and death situations. Dragonball will always have a special spot in my heart, it started it all. I've an adult now and i discover that a continuation? of the series with toriyama at helm with dragonball super. I never watched the dragonball anime's before this [i already read the manga and i wasn't interested in gt] so i was a bit uncertain of how it'll be. Turns out i'm enjoying it so far. I got used to goku and gohans voices pretty quickly [it was so bizarre in the beginning, they sound like they had their nuts in a vice honestly lol]. Sure there are flaws in the series, like the disjointed power ups and the downgrading of those power ups later [example, one moment those power ups can destroy the universe, 10 episodes later that point is forgotten and never explained] and the art could have been more polished. It didn't really matter too much to me though, since the sense of nostalgia was so sweet. I loved seeing these characters again, seeing vegeta be a tsundere, and how much he cares about his family [how dare you do that to my bulmaaaaaaaaa!, shielding trunks], seeing goku be his silly, selfish, battle obsessed self but having a number of sweet moments with his family [picolo mentioned to him that its okay for him to be a bit selfish since he put his life on the line for earth so much]. Bulma being her kickass self, scheming, commanding and having everyone wrapped around her finger lol. She's in most of the episodes which is fine since i enjoy her character. Gohan studying and working as a university assistant professor, leaving martial arts aside and being a full on happy family man. I mean i can say a lot more about what i liked about the other characters, but i'm getting sleepy . This anime isn't a masterpiece, but that wasn't its intention. For me, dragonball super offered nostalgia, with consistent characters [to how they were in the manga], humour, flashy battles and a simple direct story-line. The new characters like beerus, whiz, zeno [cho kawaii!] were fun and the expansion of the the dragonball universe was an interesting direction to go in. I'm not at the final saga yet[at ep 74] , so i'm guessing they'll probably go deeper into that later. I'm looking forward to it!
  7. @MaggieROBOT [i can't add anymore likes today, i'll like your blogpost tm , it was interesting]
  8. I love voice acting in VN's, it makes a difference for me. I like hearing the emotion of the characters, it makes them feel more 'real' rather than than say the emotions i allocate to characters when i'm reading a book. "I think" a characters feels a certain way, "I think" a character sounds this way. With voice acting, I know how they feel and sound instantly with the tones of their voice. Shikashi! if a story is really good, i don't care and i'll read it anyway . Haven't had a bad voice acting experience yet in all the VNs and anime i've viewed.
  9. I don't hate any of the personality types or archetypes, i dislike the way they're utilised or written out at times. Writers give power to the personality of characters, tsundere's can come of as endearing or obnoxious depending on their script. Osananajimi characters can be amazing if the connection between the characters are elaborated on and they story-line is given depth and emotion along with a character that can think for herself, an individual rather than existing for the sake of loving the target of her affections. However they are often written out merely to elaborate on the protagonist when he's young [personality, experiences etc] and used as some forlorn character needing the protagonist to figure it out [example]. So yeah, i don't have an issue with any of it [at least the ones i've personally experienced], just the writing and planning of these characters. The vast array of 'types' is interesting.
  10. What VNs do you hope are announced for localization in 2018?

    Nooooooooooooooo, i meant to say with or without .
  11. What VNs do you hope are announced for localization in 2018?

    Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm [with all the talk and drama that used to surround this VN , i'll always be a bit curious about it] ChuSinGura 46+1 [a relocalisation please, yeah supremely unlikely but one can hope] Soushuu Senshinkan Gakuen Hachimyoujin [cause i loved dies irae and would like to try something else from the writer] Evolimit [Cause i loved tokyo bable and would like to try something else from the writer] Gekkou no Carnevale [honestly, i can't remember why i put this VN in my wishlist lol, looks interesting] Hello Lady! [heard good things] Ourai no Gahkthun: Shining Night [man, i loved Gahkthun! , i always hoped they'll localize the fan disk] Sumaga [the rights to this being transferred to mangagamer somehow ] Any Eushully game 50+ hour game. I liked kamidori and long gameplay VNs in general. It doesn't even have to be Eushully actually, any decent gameplay VN with or with H-scenes is fine.
