Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. Anime Winter List of 2019/2020

    Railgun T is definitely going on my to-watch list this season. The anime has been nothing but great so far–especially with the last season making my top 5–so no reason for me not to. I imagine Somali to Mori no Kamisama would be somewhat similar to UchiMusume, but with the roles in reverse. Definitely does not hurt to have Satelight's budget for this series, either. They did a bang up job with the PV. A friend recommended Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun for the upcoming season. I notice there's been a bit more variation in artstyle with shounen lately, and thankfully this one does it tastefully (I don't really care for the art in Dr. Stone or Promised Neverland). I'm hearing good things about the source material too, so there's that. Lerche has been putting out good anime lately, too. Getting some pleasantly creepy vibes from the PV. And that pretty much does it for my 3. I am also interested in Boku no Tonari ni Ankoku Hankaishin ga Imasu, but I think 3's a good number for me. If something manages to flop, I'll likely switch to this.
  2. Fall 2019 Anime Discussion

    Alright, so, we're halfway through the season now, so I'll just leave a quick update here. Mairimashita Iruma-kun - Last time I commented on this anime, I only watched the first episode, and I'm impressed with how much it improved in the second episode and continued to maintain its enjoyability throughout. The characters are endearing, the scenario writing is on-point, and there are no annoying gags that bog things down. It's not quite the best comedy anime I've watched, but it's definitely up there! I'm really interested in seeing how things develop with Azazel, lol. Dr. Stone - Still watching this from last season, and it hasn't lost my interest at all yet. I like how the story is able to incorporate elements of scientific development with elements of battle shounen without making a complete mess of it. And seriously, if I had watched this anime as a kid, I might've been more motivated to pay better attention in science class, lol. Hero Aca 4 - The anime isn't doing anything different from what it usually does, and I am absolutely okay with this. What makes MHA so damn fun to watch is that it takes a simple story and loads it with emotions. For this season, it seems that MHA is quickly setting things up with a heroine whose situation is already pulling on my heartstrings. This is gonna be a real tearjerker. Yeah, it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I started falling behind after episode 6, and decided to just not catch up, lol. No one in the anime club I joined seems to like it that much, either.
  3. Fall 2019 Anime Discussion

    Oh hey, you're watching this too! I thought I'd be the first to bring it up here, but it seems you beat me to it, lol. Iruma is kinda like cross between the protagonist in Rosario+Vampire (human in a monster school) and Hayate no Gotoku (unlucky chap who gets sold off by his parents), which I thought was a hilarious mix. So far I really like the dynamics of this anime; the art is tasteful and the humor is quite fun, too. I'm glad I gave this anime a shot. And of course, I'll be watching the 4th season of Boku no Hype Academia. Last season ended with an absolute bang, so my anticipation for the rest of this season is going to be up there. Nothing terribly exciting so far, but I do like where things are going.
  4. Arunaru not working anymore with mangagamer

    I have mixed feelings on this. I am aware that this market isn't particularly lucrative, and it could be one of those cases where investing more in labor may be a risky move. I don't know if I'd consider this exploitation either, or at least not on the level of companies like Valve or Amazon. Plus, passion jobs typically don't pay well unless you're self-employed (and even that requires tremendous effort). You work a job you love to death at the expense of everything else. It's not a work philosophy I would advocate for because life is just too miserable when you don't make that much, but the choice is there. Still, not even $10k a year? Even if it was for a passion job, that's a pretty embarrassing salary. I can see why anyone would regret it after a while.
  5. Fuwanovel Confessions

    My issue is that I would frequently post stuff for the sole purpose of getting responses from people, because in my mind, getting those responses was like a kind of social acceptance I was lacking IRL. That would be further compounded by the notifications which make it so easy to keep track of them. The red color of the notification makes things even worse because it's better at drawing attention than any other color. It's the reason Facebook switched from blue notifications to red. Keeping busy is a good way to mitigate this behavior, especially if it's urgent. Urgent activities are difficult to ignore, and can make it easier to step away from the more trivial matters. Like buttons can also be problematic. It was bad enough when people left low-quality comments saying things like "nice post" and whatever, but when Facebook introduced the like system, it became even more convenient to leave low-quality feedback and move on to the next post (while also de-cluttering comments for more diversity). Additionally, this provided a useful metric to contribute to the platform's engineered addiction since it allowed it to more reasonably curate content in news feeds. It also created a certain ecosystem for which people become dependent on likes, even though it doesn't sufficiently fulfill our social needs.
  6. Fuwanovel Confessions

    Confession: Hello, everybody. I'm back from my month-long break from the interwebs. It was something I decided to do after reading Digital Minimalism and deciding to adopt a more focused lifestyle that doesn't involve compulsively browsing the internet, and so far it's going well! I'm able to engage in more productive activities to cope with anxiety, I'm learning how to avoid information overload, and I'm not allowing myself to be manipulated by new-generation technology. For the longest time I've been relying too heavily on quick fix life hacks to get my life together, and the book I read suggested that it's not enough to tackle the issues of hyper-connectivity. I need to establish a philosophy on tech so that I can maintain a greater lifestyle balance, and the book has some excellent advice in regards to that. One of those tips involved taking a 1-month hiatus from all optional technology so that I can practice better judgment for when I reintroduce them into my life. So far, I've decided to drop facebook entirely. I don't feel particularly close to anyone there except for my family, and I can just call them when I need to talk to them. I'm going to strictly limit my use of YouTube to educational use only. I've decided I don't want to use Discord anymore either (sorry, @mitchhamilton!); I just can't bring myself to use it moderately. I am going to restrict my time on Fuwanovel to 30 minutes and turn off all notifications as well. If I'm expecting replies to something, I'll just go directly to the thread. The issue with notifications is that they invoke addictive tendencies for me, and I just don't want to deal with them anymore. That said, I've gotten so much emotional support here that I just can't bring myself to leave completely. I wouldn't have even gone to therapy if it weren't for this very thread, and it was thanks to therapy that I even managed to start college at all. I still love the community here too. It wasn't hard to decide that I needed this forum in my life, even if it does seem a little odd for a minimalist, lol. Anyways, I'm happy to finally be back here. I missed you guys! (And that's it for my 30 minutes, lol. I'll be back on tomorrow~)

  11. Prettiest school uniforms in VNs?

    I think my favorite is in Chrono Clock, but that might just be because of how cute Miu looks in it.

  13. Birthday thread

    Thank you very much, everybody.
  14. I think my heart skipped a beat. Thanks again for the art compilation!
  15. Yeah, I feel ya on Accel World. As far as production standards go, it blew SAO (at least the earlier series) completely out of the park and was a joy to watch. It's the first series that comes to mind when I think of anime that need a continuation. Unfortunately, it's seems like Sunrise is mostly focusing on Gundam and Love Live nowadays. It's probably not gonna happen. Yakusoku no Neverland - This anime has a mean cliffhanger ending. If I weren't a big fan of manga in general, I'd have probably read its source material by now. I'm still considering it, actually. I'd say 90% of Madhouse's anime need continuations... Kokoro Connect - One can dream, right? Made in Abyss - I was highly invested in this series by the end of it, but the ending was not the least bit satisfying. Panty and Stocking - Not that I have a real craving for this, but I'd definitely like to watch more just for the lulz. Binbougami ga - This anime was so funny it actually hurt a little, lol. I would seriously love to see a sequel series for this.
