In the Year FC 60, much of mankind inhabits space colonies which orbit the Earth. Dominance over the colonies is decided once every four years by a large tournament in which each nation sends a single representative to fight the others with a giant robot called a Gundam. Domon Kashuu is selected to represent Neo-Japan in one of these tournaments, but he fights less to ensure his nation's victory than to find his brother, who has been blamed for the deaths of Domon's parents and the disappearance of a very dangerous weapon, the Devil Gundam.
If you haven't already, go watch Dennou Coil, aka Cyber Coil. It is kind of a fun sci fi about a bunch of kids and the fun they get into while wearing augmented reality glasses.
In the real world we're not quite there, yet. Augmented reality in the real world is bounded by things like Pokemon Go and StarChart on smartphones, and Microsoft's HoloLens is still pretty bulky and expensive. Nowhere near the nearly-invisible glasses they wear in Dennou Coil. If you've never seen MSFT's 2015 E3 Hololens minecraft demo you should. Microsoft obviously wants us to go there. They've just announced their Minecraft Earth app (below), which to me looks like a portal, both in a marketing sense and a gaming sense. Clearly - to me anyway - the plan is to get people using the app to build content and attach it to the real world so that when things like Hololens get cheap enough there will already be a rich environment to work with.

Yuuko joins her grandmother's "investigation agency" comprised of children equipped with virtual tools and powerful metatags. She quickly crosses paths with Yuuko Amasawa, an expert hacker of the virtual environment, as Amasawa relentlessly seeks to "unlock" the mystery of a computer virus that emerges from an inaccessible corrupted space.

Season 2 has been over for a couple of weeks and I am heartbroken. This series really spoke to me on an emotional level and has quickly become one of my favorites. I'm hoping it gets comfirmed for a third season.
Feel free to leave your thoughts on the anime below. I've been itching to discuss it with someone.
This poem came about when I mindlessly fell for someone that turned out to be very toxic. Also, I'm new and have no idea if I'm going about posting this in the right way? 😆
Evil in White
Catching the twilight hour within your hair
Was enough to divest me bare
Nothing from my lips can fashion you in gold
Yet it seems a constant lambency to which I behold
Wild as the wind, restless and vexed
Walking on a garden green, where surely I am hexed
A flower in your current, that tumbles from her vine
For cordial rivers sweep within you, a blue serpentine
There are no stars that fall tonight
They are your gilded crown of might
I am descrying through pellucid jade
At an azure dancer whispering to the glade
With all this power set within your eyes
For me, the least surprise,
was the eternity of the skies
If there was wisdom beating in this heart
I would not be tempted to impart
The velvet in your lonely words
Cut divinity into thirds
Looming now a profound fear
An intoxicating verdict my dear
My weakness resting on each excuse
Where even the sun might you seduce
When the amber rays swell to a coral rush
Swaying on a majestic horizon with a blush
Just to kiss you softly with a breeze
I am now but on my knees
With your name clawing from my chest
Permitting me to a feverish protest
I am reduced to the fiend of you
Falling on the blade of your fallacious virtue
Have your roots slither deep and coil tight
Should have known that evil comes dressed in white
I’m trying to find a anime show my buddy was watching in 2013. I can’t find it anywhere as I don’t know the name. I’ve googled shows etc and no luck. The show was about upper class men and under class men. It was mainly a female cast from I recall with male characters as well. The scene I remember is upper class men picking on an underclass men in a fight scene. It looked as if they were in a school basement arena of some sort. The upperclassmen were fighting one underclassmen and calling her by that name. In the scene her clothes were torn off from an attack a bit and when she was huddled down she unlocked some secret potential she had and became a great fighter I think. They were all shocked and it looked like a good anime with the fight scene and what not. Take in mind I saw this in 2013 on his laptop and he had it downloaded to his hard drive so I can’t tell you how old it really is but if anyone can spout out titles or guesses at what they think it may be it will be greatly appreciated. Also this anime was dubbed so if that helps at all.
