  1. Past hour
  2. DragonBall Z, my opinion. You can check a lot of boxes here. Idiot and single-minded MC. Inability to create tension because you know he can't lose. And if he loses he can't stay dead. In fact nobody seems to stay dead. There's no permanent consequences ever because their solution for everything is "we'll just ask the magic dragon to fix it." The times we see an attempt made at humour, it's low-hanging fruit at best. The villains either turn into the good guys eventually or they never learn, and no matter what everyone is obsessed with power. They put such a focus on increasing this power and never ending competition to set a new ceiling and then act shocked when they manage to raise it for the 300th time. It is perhaps one of the dumbest anime I have ever watched and yet it's somehow iconic and loved worldwide. There's just something about it.
  3. To be fair, alcohol can in fact be a poison when you consider its long-term effects on your liver and the way it affects your brain, blood, and heart.
  4. Found myself nodding my head at just about everything here. Trying to execute a character that is afraid of confrontation and just wants to please everyone almost certainly results in an irritating one. Presented with option A and B, they try too hard to think outside and find an option C when the choice appears to be too hard to make, and this often comes across as a narrative choice. The writers are trying too desperately to make them more relatable somehow, but on focusing on their hangup to make a tough call they end up doing exactly the opposite. You know what real people do? They make mistakes. Real people make real, stupid, sometimes selfish and short-sighted mistakes. I love using FMA as an example of an anime with well-written characters. No matter what your feelings are about FMA, you have to admit that it boasts some really believable characters because they have their flaws, they make their mistakes, and sometimes they're just flat out wrong about them. Their actions have consequences and resonate with their peers and environment both positively and negatively. Having a character flat out avoid taking any action that can potentially pull them out of a hero trope is just lazy writing. If you have the same exact character you started a story with by the end of the plot's resolution, then you've utterly failed your audience.
  5. That would have to be Japan, I really like the culture, they've got a lot of amazing places I'd like to visit and experience How about you?
  6. Skawhirls are evil, stealing my foods >< lol I'm not sure, traveling to me is the most exciting thing. Just seeing new places. If you could travel anywhere in the world right now where would you go?
  7. Today
  8. I hear ferret's are fun, and squirrels too I've not ridden a motorcycle before What's the most exciting thing you've done before?
  9. I'd want a sugar glider or a marmoset. I don't know how exotic they are, but they aren't common pets I suppose. Or a ferret. I'd settle for a ferret. Have you ever ridden on a motorcycle?
  10. I've never sky dived before, but my outlook on life is life may as well be enjoyed, sometimes this requires taking risks, so as long as it's done safely of course, I mean I'm not a maniac or something, lmao I've never actually thought about having an exotic pet before, would likely require a lot of upkeep and I'm more of an adventurous minded individual How about you?
  11. That's almost terrifying but I still think I'd have to try it lol. Are there any exotic pets you would want to have?
  12. 🤣 Best virtual karaoke ever! And now with world-ending music!
  13. That'll happen. But I find things are actually pretty decently priced at comicons. Wanna go swim with some sharks with me? lol
  14. Little Friends (Switch) Downloaded this game simply because it reminded me of Nintendogs for the original Nintendo DS and honestly I was hoping it was. It's vaguely similar but very lacking to say the least. Still, it's enjoyable for what it is. The Sims 4 (PC) Been into building homes lately and uploading them to the gallery. Didn't play very much with any of my sim families though. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Switch) Played a little of this during the nasty line of storms I've been having. More to keep the anxiety at bay than anything else.
  15. I haven't, it's something I really should do I'm just worried I might end up breaking the bank when I do go 😂
  16. I have as Mimi from Digimon, Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter and as Hinata Hyuga. Have you ever been to a comicon at all?
  17. Sky Wall, instead of Sky Fall, it's a story about a brick wall floating in the sky and no one can understand why
  18. Kazuto Kirigaya I've never actually cosplayed before, but it's something I'd like to do Have you ever cosplayed before?
  19. I'm glad I didn't start reading this thread before I went to sleep last night, lol
  20. Sakura Haruno or Asuna Yuki. And who would you be?
  21. My favorite wrestler theme song was always Edge's intro song: Or if I was going to use one that hasn't been used before, probably "Scream" by Thousand Foot Krutch.
  22. If you were going to cosplay, which character would you choose?
  23. Tell them to not worry, I wasn't spooning some d00d, but the d00d got the wrong idea and wanted to be spooned, but I declined as I'm not like that, lol
  24. Question why they do when they was caught spooning before some d00ds
  25. Thank you for your recommendations. Baccano seems very good. I'll probably watch it after I finish Durarara.
