  1. So yeah, this might be something of a hot take, but I don't think Demon Slayer was good at all. I don't mind it going for a simple plot, and there were some things I found interesting, but it's a major flaw when 80% of the anime's storytelling comes from internal monologues. Not only is it lazy since it requires little to no planning, but it fails to fully utilize its assets as an anime. I wouldn't mind it as much if it was kept to a minimum, but they packed so much into every episode that it severely impacted my enjoyment of the series. There is so much information that anime is able to convey compared to something like a book, so it makes no sense for Demon Slayer to restrict itself to the degree it has been. Anime can benefit from a variety of techniques such as facial expressions, meaningful dialogue, camera zooms, sound direction, atmosphere, and various other aspects that are unique to the medium. But no, Demon Slayer decided to hamfist almost everything with monologues and poorly timed flashbacks. It's a shame too; I really wanted to like this anime. The animation is stunning, but no matter how much you dress up garbage, it's still garbage. I probably would've enjoyed this more as a picture book than I did as an anime. Other than the animation, I have absolutely no respect for what this anime does. Hell, even that one awesome fight scene on episode 19 was bogged down by this. 4/10
  2. I was mulling it over for a while, and I decided to just give up on the daily grind and wait for content patches. The story content itself is not difficult enough to justify the endgame grind, and the abyss requires more commitment than its worth.
  3. It might be better that you don't. I was super into this game when I started, but now that I'm caught up on all the fresh content, it feels like a chore. And now that I'm fully invested in the game's combat mechanics, I'm hard debating whether or not I should wait for another content patch before going at it again. This game has gotten me so invested in the character/equipment combat dynamics that I want to experiment with all of them, but progression is aggravatingly timegated once you've explored everything.
  4. Yo this is the most hype AMV I've seen in a long time.
  5. Okay, I just realized it's my dark mode addon causing the issues. Thought it might've been a site issue. I'll just switch to a theme with native dark mode and turn the addon off for this site. Thanks!
  6. Yeah, everything just looks kinda jumbled. I'm on FF 82.0 64-bit and running Windows 10.
  7. Pokemon fans got hit with a nostalgia bomb.
  8. Okay, so I saw this post on reddit after looking up some guides , and now I immediately regret a few of the statements I made in this forum. I shouldn't have bragged about my Venti pull. I got caught up in the moment and I unintentionally promoted unhealthy consumerism. If anyone here has any sort of gambling tendency, I sincerely apologize for that. The game's gacha rates might be more generous than FGO's, but that comes with its own slew of issues. They're not doing it to make the game more fair and enjoyable, but to encourage awful spending habits by conditioning the player. I always wanted to downplay the gacha pushback because people were making shit arguments to attack it (and I still think they're shit), but thankfully I did run into the one logical argument as to why the system they have in place is actually worse than FGO. The fact that I still love this game is something that bothers me somewhat. I know that I don't have to keep playing this game, but I'm already so invested that I can't pull myself away. I want to build more characters so I can experiment with their skill sets; I want to progress further in the abyss so I can earn more primo gems and get more characters to tinker with; and I want to experience that same high that I got after pulling Venti (I'm literally chasing the dragon at this point). Because of this, I am already feeling the effects of the game's conditioning. I would most definitely want to start off with the monthly primo gems, and I might not have much resistance at all if a generous sale happens to come up (I've fallen for this in Granblue Fantasy and FGO). I would really want to support a game like this too, except I don't want to support this kind of monetization. Personally, I would value the game at $60 and would happily buy it at this price if there were no MTX, but now that I realize what this game is doing, I won't give it a dime. The game is fun, but the monetization is just as scummy as any other gacha game. Anyways, just thought I'd share my two cents. TL;DR: The gacha system is more scummy than you might think.
  9. Huh, I see. I haven't encountered a book that drew me in with the use of complex writing as opposed to engaging storytelling. I'm pretty sure I won't get that experience from the English TL of Dies Irae due to its frequent misuse of advanced terminology.
  10. Do even native speakers struggle to read stuff like this? Seems like it'd be a major hassle to read. I don't remember any off the top of my head, but I remember running into a few English novels where I constantly needed to look up words, and I usually hate them, lol.
  11. Idk if I'd go so far as to call it a shit game, but I really wish it wasn't f2p. There is still a lot of HQ content that isn't hindered by the game's major flaws. You can make a really solid team with guaranteed characters by the time you reach AR 20, and getting a good 5-star character is not that hard thanks to the pity rule and the small pool of characters (which I would argue is better than any other gacha). I would also argue that the writing, the production values, and the exploration mechanics lend a lot to the game's overall enjoyability. The only thing I would criticize about the game's main story content is that the characters don't really leave a strong impression on me. I do also have a thing for resource management and progression strategies, but I know that's not a thing for everybody since it can break immersion. There are a lot of things I wish the game would do better, though. I don't like the idea of Barbara only being easily attainable to people who join early (although Noelle is fine as a healer), co-op needs a lot of work, and there should be an inclusion of non-restricted repeatable content for people who don't wanna wait for the next content patch.
  12. Mine would be Agents of Shield. It has a lot of interesting scenarios and fun superhero stuff that are enough to keep me engaged. The characters are also pretty relatable (even when they aren't in the main cast). I do still tune in to western TV shows once in a while since my Mom and I share a Netflix account. I still very much prefer anime, though.
  13. omfg yes this is awesome I can't believe I actually got him iwegfhbiqwnfpoiiwbghfqpwh
  14. Woah, nice, Keqing! She's wouldn't be my first choice for a 5-star roll, but I definitely wouldn't mind having her in place of Razor.
  15. Really? I thought it was supposed to be cross-platform and international.
