  1. Yesterday
  2. That's almost prophetic levels, at the very least it was some very good foreshadowing. What's you're rank in Clairvoyance?
  3. Temps got into the mid 50s today, so did what will probably be the last of the end of season yard work. Perfect timing as it started raining just as I was wrapping up. Now just hope we don’t get a lot of ice & snow this winter.

  4. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2021-12-05/golden-kamuy-anime-gets-4th-season-with-new-staff-studio/.180296 And I was just giving this series a plug on here earlier today. Damm, I’m good Just hope the new creative team keeps up the good work. Now if I could just get a 2nd season of Beautiful Bones
  5. Okay got two, depending on what you're looking for; If you're looking to rig and puppet a drawn 2d Character to make the animating easier, but have more control and animation quality than say stills try Dragon Bone its open source and free to use and learn. If you are looking for free drawing software there are lots and lots for IOS and Android however I've never used them, and I imagine free means ADS. Obviously photoshops a monthly subscription or annual subscription so again not a great choice and personally something I don't do. However if you want a good drawing software that isn't crap or so expensive you start selling you're organs on the side, I say get something like Clip Paint Studio or Manga Studios. Those are relatively cheep, and there lifetime access. So no worrying about a cut off point so long down the line, and there easy to use a lot easier than Photoshop and more advance than say something free. I think Manga Studios is cheaper than a triple A game so either ask for it for Christmas from someone or buy one less anime this season.
  6. Psycho Loli The lead would have to be criminally asymptomatic
  7. @MarathonGuy1337Welcome to the forums buddy, I'd recommend anime for you but I already know what you're watching and what you like. But who knows you might get some good suggestions from some of the other Forum members, that aren't dark serious anime for a change.
  8. Okay that sounds up my street, I have a love for anything to do with historical or myth so that sounds really cool. Plus an anime dealing to the repercussions of the Russo-Japanese war sounds far to intresting to pass up. Yeah, I know a couple guys who prefer more comedic, funny shows. So I'll yet them know about that defiantly.
  9. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here I first got into anime watching Star Blazers which was the Americanized version of the series Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is an update of. I also recognize Captain Tylor from my anime on VHS days So, you can probably tell I’ve been around anime for a lonnnnnggg time My tastes are pretty varied but my favorite genres are probably fantasy & supernatural. You can link to your MAL account on your profile page if you want. There’s also a topic where you can post it https://animeforums.net/topic/10601-post-your-anime-list/page/4/#comments though I kinda derailed it recently (sorry, I’m a bit of a rambler) Hope you decide to stick around.
  10. @MediaConsumesMe I think you might enjoy Golden Kamuy. It’s set in the early 1900’s. At the center of it is a search for a hidden fortune in gold stolen from the Ainu (the Japanese equivalent of Native Americans or Inuit). The mastermind behind the theft left a “map” of how to find the treasure tattooed on the bodies of convicts he was imprisoned with before they escaped. Different factions are searching for the treasure as a way of funding their ambitions. The central characters are a former Japanese soldier & a teenaged Ainu girl. There are actually some similarities to the classic westerns The Good, The Bad & The Ugly and True Grit. It’s definitely dark & violent. But alongside the action it also has a lot of character development for it’s cast plus it explores Ainu culture & historic events of the early 20th century (most notably repercussions of the Russo-Japanese war & attempted assassination of Russia’s Alexander II). However it frequently has very broad & crude/vulgar humor (kinda like Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure sense of humor). IMO the further you get into the series, the better it gets. Season 3 resolved the previous cliffhanger & provided a lot of insight into various characters motives & the truth of the original incident. But it’s not the conclusion. I don’t know how far along the manga is since I keep hoping for a season 4. Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun is at the opposite end of the spectrum & doesn’t really align with your current preference for dark anime. It’s largely comedic & cartoonish and probably PG rated. The MC is a 14 year old “nice guy” who’s struggled to support his deadbeat parents. Things seem to hit a new low when they actually sell him to a demon. Turns out the demon is just jealous of his peers bragging about their grandchildren all the time, so he wants to adopt Iruma & dote on him. But humans are considered illegal immigrants (and possibly a food delucacy ) in the netherworld, so he has to keep his identity secret. As comedic as it is, there are some story developments. Iruma is gradually learning to not be such a doormat & actually cone up with personal goals & ambitions. He seems to have a natural talent for gaining the trust of his classmates. His “grandfather” used to be the chief advisor to the former Demon King & the throne is currently vacant. The Demon Realm used to be a lot more chaotic & evil before the former King instituted reforms & there’s a faction that wants to put things back to how they used to be.
  11. I've heard of most of those, but what is Golden Kanuy and Iruma-kun about? I don't think I've ever seen nor heard of those shows. What are they about?
  12. decided to go with a facial hair motif Star Blazers, Cowboy Bebop, MHA Vinland Saga, Fate Zero, Golden Kamuy Demon Slayer, Iruma-kun, FMAB
  13. I've never play one, I got Fate Stay Night but I didn't enable the Hentai scenes. My opinions sort of indifferent to people who like it. I really know very little about those types of games, in fact Fate is the only game I know that contains 'hentai scenes', which I found out when I learned when I looked into Saber's concept phase. So I don't know if Fate is even a good comparison to a full blown Hentai game. As most the game from my knowledge is just reading, a couple choices and then... Hentai scenes.
  14. I didn't list mine either, so were both guilty of that over sight ha ha; Row 1: Parasyte, Legend of the Galactic Heroes: The New Thesis, Steins Gate Row 2: Monster, Psycho Pass, Ergo Proxy Row 3: Fate Zero, Berserk and Wolfs Rain
  15. Cannot love Monster enough. I'd say it's definitely in my top 3, up there with Cowboy Bebop and Megalo Box 2: Nomad. Mushishi is something I like to relax to, I wouldn't call it a nostalgic show on its own but it often reminds me of some warm, good memories growing up. Yeah, I'm a huge fan of the Lupin franchise; love the anime and I'm still trying to find all of the movies. Sorry about not listing the anime themselves, sometimes I get distracted by my dogs and forget what I'm doing. Row 1: Nana, Monster, Lupin the 3rd (though I gotta say that Part 1 is my favorite out of the series). Row 2: Mushishi, The Big O, Mononoke. Row 3: Kids on the Slope, Cowboy Bebop, Megalo Box 2: Nomad.
  16. I recently just found out about the forum from a friend. Since I'm into anime I figured it be great to meet some like mind fellow men/women of culture and find out about any cool new or retro shows from other people with a similar interest. Basically I got into anime a few years back when going to college, watching a a couple different shows. Such as Space Battleship Yamato 2199, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Toradora! among a few others but got more into anime during the lock-down situation. I'm now into all sorts of anime; be them modern or retro, science fiction or slice of life, serious or comedic, long running or a short OVA. Looking forward to any suggestions for what to watch next! I can post a link to MyAnimeList if anyone's interested in any shows I've got under my belt so just ask and I'll post it. Peace.
  17. Nice, right before the pandemic I went to an Evanescence concert, still good. Will always love the Killers! One of my favorites! SMT always has the best OSTs. That guitar is incredibly sexy.~ If anyone is interested in Japanese City Pop or Funky Jazz I recommend this listening set. It's been in my favs for a while now but I don't remember if I shared it before or not.
  18. Nice, Monster is an epic choice. Mushi-shi I haven't finished yet but so far I've really enjoyed it. I also see Cowboy Beebop and one of the Lupin shows (or movies). I have no idea what the other shows are.
  19. Sorry. Ha, yeah this film is really bad. But in a good way; the moment when an anime spontaneously without warning breaks into doing a footloose AMV you know its something terribly special.
  20. I remember this. Looks like I have to watch it all over again.
  21. The OG and Prequel Star Wars films alongside the first three Indie films are really nostalgic for me. Then there's the first two Terminators, Predator and a bunch of Arnold Schwarzenegger other films like Total Recall, Kindergarden Cop, Commando and that one were he's trying get the toy for his son on Christmas. No idea why his films are the epitome of my childhood movies.
  22. Last week
  23. There are lots, but the first few that come to mind are mostly Ghibli. Some classics like Totoro or Spirited Away. Kiki's and Castle in the Sky and Whisper of the Heart are a few others that I've watched several times over the years. Getting away from the "G" and in a more "nostalgic" vein there's stuff like Wizards that takes me back to my middle/high school days.
  24. I showed a friend an anime called Cipher. It highly regarded as one of the worst anime ever created. I was in stiches in the end as he sat angry and confused over the twenty minutes he'd never get back. Best part is its on youtube so anyone can watch the Room of Anime if they want.
  25. So many to choose, damn. Okay some honourable mentions have to go to Monster, Steins Gate, Madoka Magica Rebellion, Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works second opening and Ergo Proxy. However my number 1 all-time favourite as got to be. Psycho Pass season 1 opening 2. The choose of song, presentation, and themes present are 10/10
  26. Just used the git hub link, its really simple to use turns out, all you got to do is click on one of the empty tabs and then choose one of the three search engines, click either manga, anime or character and then type in the name for what you're looking for. I'll upload my test and the links already posted in my early comment.
