    So today I log on and for some reason I just started playing really well and I PASSED MY FIRST 5 STAR MAP!


    Not only that, I managed to FINALLY FC this beatmap that has tormented me since I got an osu account. It felt super gratifying (acc could have been better but I derped on one stream):


    That second map and song is great. I remember getting a 6x100 Hidden on that a while ago and not being able to repeat it

    Went from roughly 42k to 36k. Yay! ^_^


    I went to 42k. No more worrying about dipping back over 50k again.

    @Ceris "La-da-da my name's Ceris and I luuuv collectin' CARDS n' being da best!" - (REN's Ceris Video impersonation): Our differences in interests mean we don't encounter each other much on these forums anymore outside of the sporadic times I'm in the Anime thread, but I'm fond of our LL time together. Still think you're insane (godly?) for having endured (enjoyed?) LL for so long though.

    Started watching Konosuba after a friend irl recommended it to me. Holy shit this is hilarious and Megumin is such a best girl. I'm going to have a good time with this one I feel. Already plan on ordering the light novels as well.

    How did you not watch it when it aired? Konosuba is fantastic, can't wait for s2 and more Megumin!

    There was a "selection" that suggested "watch season2". Can't remember if it was the final episode or OVA but I suspect they were hoping for funding for another season.

    Yeah, funding is the problem. The DVD and BDs didn't sell very well for it, and it wouldn't be the first time this studio just dropped an anime like this, other example being Mondaiji-tachi, which also didn't sell well and hasn't been heard about anime wise in nearly 3 years.

    Finished My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy aka NouCome and the OVA. It was pretty good and quite amusing, though it just notches up another scar on my unresolved harem list, awaiting more seasons of more unresolution [sic].

    God I loved that anime, it was freaking hilarious. Pretty positive that's a one and done anime unfortunately.

    Holy crap 400. Congrats!

    Also remember that time when i said i'm gonna T2 this event? Disregard that pulizu :sachi:


    Forgot to reply to this after doing the math. This event is about 45% higher than usual for cutoffs. Not as bad as the worst event though, which was about 52% above the average cutoff (The Snow Umi event)

  7. Haven't SS'd anything in forever (Last time was October 29th on this






    Also, this felt so fucking satisfying, 5.72* song clear

    Everything goes rip at the end because I was afraid of failing.

    Most LN adaptations are mediocre, but they at least follow the storyline. Mahouka kinda doesn't, and it also adds a lot of pacing issues on top of that, which leads to it ending in the worst possible place. But I think the premise of the story itself is already a big enough flaw to not consider it a great show. You always know what's going to happen, you know Tatsuya will overpower his enemies every single time, and not in a One-punch Man kind of way.  Imagine Kirito, except overpowered in real life and with an even bigger harem, that's Tatsuya. But even worse is that Tatsuya basically has no emotions, he's just like "I'm prince charming and I can do literally anything", and it gets stale quickly, especially with the anime's pacing. And above all else, a majority of the show is attempting to explain why he's that awesome, and taking it very seriously, and it just doesn't work.

    Also in general it's just not a very fun anime to watch because the battles are really boring and have no polish to them. Most of them are over in 2 minutes because Tatsuya just overpowers everyone who was initially underestimating him (I'm not exaggerating, that's what happens every time). They literally build up all this tension and drama because they're "about to lose" and "what are they gonna do now!?" and then Tatsuya just steps in and people are still worried, and then he just wins and all that tension is gone. And just when you think it's about to get good, the anime ends.

    I mean, I guess you can find some enjoyment if you just like seeing overpowered characters, but Tatsuya is not a good way to bring that trope out in my opinion. I had way more fun watching Hagure Yuusha no Aesthetica because the protagonist in there exhibits charisma out of every pore of his body. Tatsuya is just a price charming with little to no personality.

    I think in this particular case the novels are vastly superior, if not only for the pacing. Yeah the premise is still iffy, but at least it's easier to put up with, but even then Mahouka's characters are just not that good.

    Pretty much every reason I dropped the anime. It was just boring.

    As part of my efforts to know all of the playable characters featured in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, I'm planning to knock out all related animes this summer

    HI2v82W.jpg (960×544)
    Asuna    Sword Art Online 
    Kirito    Sword Art Online
    Kirino Kosaka    Oreimo
    Kuroyukihime    Accel World 
    Mikoto Misaka    A Certain Magical Index/A Certain Scientific Railgun
    Miyuki Shiba    The Irregular at Magic High School
    Rentarō Satomi    Black Bullet
    Shana    Shakugan no Shana
    Shizuo Heiwajima    Durarara!!
    Taiga Aisaka    Toradora!
    Tomoka Minato    Ro-Kyu-Bu!
    Yukina Himeragi   Strike the Blood

    ^Bolded are the ones I don't know. Huh. I actually know alot \^_^/

    But anyways, I'm going with Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei / The Irregular at Magic High School

    You didn't know Kirino? I guess the hype behind her series ended a couple years ago, but I saw Kirino everywhere before. 

    Kaguya used a Miyuki avatar here at one point, I'm assuming you at least know of Durarara. Lastly, Loli Basketball is alright, if you're into lolis :makina:  It's a blast if you are. 

    Out of that list, I've watched all of SAO, OreImo, Accel World, Railgun, Black Bullet, Shana, Toradora. Saw S1 of Durarara and Ro-Kyu-Bu, first half of Mahouka, and only the first arc of Strike The Blood. 

    The best out of the ones  you bolded is definitely Durarara, though, I really loved OreImo (until the ending ONAs... why... why... just why.....)

  10. JP Only:

      • New cards will be added 4 times a month: 2 times for µ's, 2 times for Aqours
      • Events will alternate between µ's and Aqours
        • Each event will have 2 SRs instead as rewards
      • Songs will be added twice a month: mid-month for µs, end of month for Aqours
  11. I just search "star>5.0", hit random, and play whatever I feel like, Not caring about the difficulty (unless it goes above 5.6, then it's just too hard.)  I end up clearing a lot of 5.3-5.4 songs easily but I'll never ever FC anything because my consistency is just too trash. I'll miss some easier stuff but hit the cross screen jumps :amane:

    Speaking of hands, my left hand has been cramping up for some reason while playing, don't really know why. Doesn't even have to be hard stuff, it will cramp for what feels like no reason.

    I get so depressed looking at my rank. :( Oh well... Hopefully one day everything will pay off.

    I feel like that every day. I generally have 2-3x more plays than any of my friends that are higher rank than me. It just feels like no matter how much I play, my progress is just a snails pace if at all.

    I didn't like the anime too much either. I love SRPG, but that secretary kinda makes me afraid to try Noire's game.

    Is it because, since you love them, you don't want to see Neptunia make a bad one?

    I need to finish the anime still, only made it through epinside 7 so far. I believe that episode was taken directly from Re;Birth 3, so maybe I should compete that game before continuing... Still in Chapter 5 of that one.

    I thought the same a couple episodes ago, and I realized smth. It's pretty well thought out, cuz everything she says can also be traced back to the fact that she already met him once before the respawn, had all that mana-steal "joke" and stuff. It would be insane if she was the shaman, though...

    Or maybe it'll just be someone on town, since curses are supposed to be close range magic, and one thing Subaru and Rem have in common is that they both go to the town to shop, so it would make sense if Rem died this episode cuz the shaman decided to curse her instead of Subaru (since he didn't leave the mansion at all, this time). Unless he went to shop with Ram instead and  I'm remembering it wrong... which would be a "fruck me" moment.




    It was Rem he went with. I was starting to mix up Rem and Ram with having 1 week between episodes so I researched all the scenes with them in the past 3 episodes prior to this week. I noticed he spends more time with Ram over Rem, but earlier, it was Ram discussing with Roswaal about Subaru being a possible spy.

    Though useless info anyway since we know it was Ram as she was grieving over Rem's death.

    Oh. Noire has her own game, huh. 

    Yeah, I do play on PC. 

    I'll check that out, but I'm not really a fan of Noire. 

    I heard there was a light novel series. Wonder about that. 

    Noire game is a strategy RPG. Don't know anything else beyond that though. Don't care all that much about Noire other than Neptune's constant loner jabs at her, so never bothered looking into it.

    Okay, I knew Lantis was pathetic for creating the exact same story in the anime with the same cookie cutter characters, but I didn't think they would literally copy the Maki, Eli, and Nico BiBi group setup with the exact same characters and clothing style. This is seriously the most pathetic shit I have ever seen. This series is literally the Sakura series of visual novels - copy/paste everything for free money.

    At this point, the only saving grace for this new series is the fact that one of the VAs apparently speaks fluent English. That will be very interesting for international releases.

    Fans voted for that style of subunit and they delivered. Blame the fans who voted.

  17. Uhh.. humans... **googles**

    My favorite party member was Falcom, just purely off looks, didn't really care for the human characters much. I remember liking Financier in Rebirth 1 but don't remember much about it.

    Also, I should really get to doing Conquest some day. I've been saved at the beginning of it forever now while I slowly slowly slowly work on the final achievement of NepNep1. Currently at 20/100mil Credits :komari:

    But Miuna had the odds stacked against her from the get go, and then the show gave her the middle finger anyway.

    In fact, Manaka winning is why the show made me so upset, not because she was a shit character (although that's part of it I must admit) but because it felt like it nullified everything that had been built up before. It was like "yeah well I still have my undying love for Manaka anyway so fuck you". Out of all the girls in that show, Manaka had the thickest plot armor, and her winning solidified that fact.

    Imo the show would have been 10 times better had she stayed dead at the bottom of the ocean.

    The reason I hated the drama was because of how angsty it was on top of how safe the story plays it. Manaka winning was the demise of the whole show (on top of the often dragged out drama).



    Nosebleed is just too :salt: over the ending to like the series :sachi: 

    Everyone is correct, Miuna is best girl

    Also, Neptune is definitely much more normal in her HDD, but it seems like some of her quirks remain.


    That second screenshot, that scene made it into the anime, was episode 7 iirc. The last episode I watched so far :sachi: I need to get back to the anime as well as NepNep3. I'm in Chapter 5 still, I believe were splitting up helping the other nations.
