  2. Winter 2019 Anime Discussion

    Okay, this season actually does interest me a little, so I'll add a couple more. Yakusoku no Neverland didn't disappoint at all. The end of the first episode was very engaging, and it has a nice feel to it overall. I don't like the character designs at all, though. Watching Domestic na Kanojo too... Yeah, I got baited by the damn OP, lol. The writing is awfully contrived at the start, but I am willing to forgive that if the story is at least able to build on it in a meaningful way. Plus, the first episode was classy af, so I don't think it'll be that much of a struggle to keep watching.

    That's good to hear. I'm happy for ya. How does Ghandi's saying go now? "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty." There are still a lot of good people in the world. Ya know, I'm beginning to think that even financial freedom (in the short term I mean) won't do much to help resolve issues like this. Apparently it takes a lot of hard word, planning, and commitment to achieve a comfortable lifestyle, so you may very well find yourself stuck in this kind of rut until retirement. But it's not all doom and gloom; I have come across several strategies to make life a little less unbearable through various self improvement techniques. One of the more promising guides I've come across recently is the Tamed Course on Improvement Pill's Youtube channel. His videos are packed with insightful details on personal development, and he's really good about backing up his ideas with hard science. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE_vQWWxgaiH1Xcri6_WJDZnC_XezkyAO The only thing I disagree with him on is that silly NoFap or NNN nonsense that's been going around lately. Granted, he is the first sane person I've come across who buys into something like this, but I still don't. He even admits in his own video that there's not much science to go off of, and his evidence is purely anecdotal.

    Lise's route in Symphonic Rain comes to mind... It's not a bizarre work by any means, but the ending will definitely inspire strong, negative emotions.

    As much as I'd like to, I'm still a bit hesitant to watch anything this season. But I would like to point out that there is a Tezuka adaption this season. Dororo has a pretty solid rating right off the bat too, so it might be worth looking into. Edit: Ah, screw it, it's been too long since I enjoyed a good samurai anime. No regrets picking it up at all though; this is a damn good anime.
  6. Peria Chronicles - upcoming anime mmo.

    Mmm, I'm not sure if this'll be my kind of game based on my previous experience with Nexon's Mabinogi. That game was very pretty, and even had a few interesting gameplay ideas like the Compose skill, but the skill grinding pretty much ruined it for me (and this was back when I was more tolerant of grinding mechanics). I'll keep my eyes on it for the time being, but I'm not expecting much.

    Been a while since I posted anything from Pixiv. Here's an adorable Mashu art to make up for that. https://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=83739
  8. When does Dies Irae get good?

    I'm kinda with you on the SoL scenes. It's not that I didn't expect them at all, but due to months of anticipation and elevated expectations from its opening scenes, I felt extremely drained after that initial shift. But you know, that's kinda my fault for letting my expectations get the better of me; and now that I think about it, I was being way too harsh with my standards. And now that I know what to expect going in, I think I'll be able to put in a little more effort into reading further.

    Man, f2p games are so expensive.

    Confession: Today I decided on a New Year resolution that I feel fairly comfortable with. I wasn't planning to have any this year, but then my therapist suggested that I make it my goal to stop being hard on myself. With it being a strong source of anxiety for me, I think it might be worth pursuing this new line of thought and making it my primary focus for 2019. Even though I wasn't quite able to reach my weight-loss goal, I did lose a substantial amount of weight (58 pounds) and I'm about 15 pounds away from getting out of obesity. And since I've already developed the habit of working out every day, and I won't have that much more weight to lose before I'm in a semi-comfortable range, I think I can leave this as a secondary focus. I'm gonna aim to be a little more outgoing this year too. So far the only thing I've really done in college is go to class and get good grades. I did have some interaction with one of my coding professors and came up with a few ideas on how to improve my employability, but I've yet to actually do anything to get me in the right direction. That definitely needs to change if I want to stand out a little more to potential employers. Overall, 2018 was a phenomenal year for me. It was probably the greatest period of growth I've experienced in my whole life, and I'm excited to see how things turn out for me this year.
  11. My top five visual novels for 2018 that I read.

    I haven't finished any of the VNs I started this year. I am a good ways into Symphonic Rain though, and I would say it's definitely at the top my list. From what I've read so far, this VN is surprisingly depressing for a nakige. It definitely distinguishes itself from standard-fare nakige in terms of character direction, but it ultimately delivers the tear-jerking experience I cherish so much in this genre. Oh and this is just from finishing one route. I haven't even gotten to Al Fine, which seems to be the most popular.

    Yeah, that was my main draw to the series when I watched a Wisecrack review breaking down the anime's philosophy. It does look pretty interesting.
