    What's up everyone, Mango here. I kinda suck at intros but here goes...I would say i'm just another newcomer looking for a place to call home, make friends, discuss anime/manga and anything and everything related to otaku culture. Looking forward to my time on here

    Well...we can't have a turnout for everything I spose. Ha! We'll try some of these more elaborate contests another time. Meanwhile, since we did have one entry, that means we did hold and maintain the part two of the contest. Congrats @Rini Akemi. This is where I make a "your check is in the mail" joke - but since it's a gift card, and it's instant and electronic - yeah. There's a dad joke here, but I seriously can't even. Till next...well, later this year folks!

    Greetings. Perhaps we may be well acquainted later; perhaps we have a few similar interests. Welcome.

    @Seshi I think I saw a few early episodes of Psycho-Pass. Didn't seem like my kind of thing and some of the underlying science parts are .. dubious but I'll spend a little more time with it. Maybe they explain things better later in the series. @Tv-Crimes Ergo Proxy was close. As with psycho-pass some of the science part is questionable though. Not a bad anime, but in terms of SF and this thread I'd like it "harder".

    Good evening guys and gals, I've been looking for a community to share my experiences of different anime and get some nice new recommendations. I'm very friendly and would love to hear from you on recommendations and maybe chat it up a bit. Thank you.

    Well, I've started up a new Sim on Sims4 since I got the GetFamous expansion pack on sale. I'm an awful person....even my husband thinks I'm terrible. So, I made her a starving actress wannabe....noticed that vacant lot in the valley looked like it really was missing some burning barrels... I ended up having her dump 10k on it (mind you she only started with 20k), then instead of even trying to build a house, I dropped a tent, cooler, campfire and camping chairs down and then built a little 3x3 shack to hold her valuables (like a computer). To solve the bathroom problem, I put an outdoor showerhead on the backside of the shack and a toilet...then threw up some dividers and a few trees behind it all to hide it... a clothesline and laundry bucket completed the scene... It actually looks like it belongs on that huge lot. I'd throw up a screenshot but everytime I try to attach one tonight I get an error message. Anyways, I feel bad that's she's so poor...her bills are only ~$300 and she's only got around 72 dollars to her name but eventually she'll ascend to fame and leave all this behind...right? Still, I put the poor girl in a tent...and she doesn't even have indoor plumbing.... >_> Yep, I'm a terrible person. That said, her lack of belongings and comfort at home has me sending her out into town for things...so she's not a shut-in like most of my Sims end up being at least! There's that, right? LOL....silver linings.

    I think, as far as I understood you, this could also tie in, or rather is directly related with the prominent 'elitism' in the anime community. While anyone can say that someone else's fav. show is trash or what not, there definitely are very, very hardcore elitists who seem to be on a quest to desperately find the anime that they can say is perfect in every whatsoever (whatever that's supposed to mean...) while they try 'enlighten' everyone that everything else is trash. They're usually not that hypocritical because they are pretty clear on what they think is 'objectively good' animation, characters, story, etc... and are usually fairly consistent about it, however I think their premise, that they, through whatever divine intervention, know what is good and what is not, is simply fallacious. While the idea of discussing anime and somehow deducing what can be considered good (not what people have to like but of what we can say that it has good writing and what not) is important, these elitists seem to have done that by themselves rather than as part of the community and just split the community unnecessarily.

    I don't know that I'd call any of these "controversies." A controversy implies malicious intent or questionable means and methodology. I think this is more of a preference thing. The biggest problems that divide the anime community is self-division, superiority complexes, and double standards. Self-division, basically because you have different thoughts and opinions on a different series or franchise, even down to characters. Which leads to the superiority complex (which ties into what serge was saying) with people insisting that their opinion is superior to another. Likewise, that can be taken into various other series. I don't believe that any one franchise has a more toxic fandom than another. They all seem to suck or rock about the same. Most of the people who practice this superiority trait then also impose double standards, but in anime - especially North America - there are two folds of double standards there. The first comes in the form of the fans that point out technical flaw in a series they don't find as "entertaining" to them as their own preference. Yet, they ignore the technical flaws of their own and make excuses for it. The second comes from the industry, and it's honestly my biggest pet peeve. I believe almost every single voice actor and actress I've seen on Twitter touting about various social justice of some form and totally omit that stance when dealing with characters in their own line of work. These people are nothing short of hypocrites. At any rate, those are my big three things that are damaging the industry.

    Now that I think of it, I really want to record more music and make a YouTube channel as well, maybe a sound cloud. I have all the gear and equipment I need (except for cameras, but I want to focus on audio production anyway and not video). Between work and school, I barely ever even feel like going to the gym, much less actually recording.

    What movies have you seen recently, new or old? We most recently watched Monsters University, before that we watched Prometheus. Soon we'll watch Alien: Covenant and all of the Star Wars stuff. The last movie we saw in theatres was Joker, awhile ago now.

    @Ohiotaku FURABA FOR LIFE, I waited 18 years, 18 painful years before they made a proper anime of this amazing, hearwarming, heartwrenching, tear jerking, brilliant story to happen. And the first season was so so so good. I live and breath for this anime. I cannot wait for april.

    Horror games: love em, hate em, can't get enough? I've always wanted to enjoy horror games, but they always freak me out way too much, which is a shame. Soooo, I don't really play them! I like reading horror, but so far I haven't been able to muster up the courage to actually play horror games haha. Do you have any favourite games from the horror genre? As for me, the only ones I've really even tried are Silent Hill and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The atmosphere and fog is what creeps me the heck out!!

    I'll carefully throw Ergo proxy in here. I wasn't sure at first if i should or not but seeing as it is one of my favorite animes and it is sci-fi but just like Seshi said, you be the judge when it comes down to the science part. If i had to describe it it without giving away anything, i'd say it's like mixing philosophy with cyberpunk. Also, thumbs up for the Psycho Pass recommendetion. It's perhaps closer to what you're looking for than Ergo Proxy

    Personally? NO I don’t read or speak the language. I don’t like Asian food. While I have some casual curiosity about the culture & philosophy, it really doesn’t line up with my personal beliefs. Even when it comes to otaku interests, a lot of it is too extreme and/or weird over there. About the only things outside of anime/manga/vgs that intrigue me would be folklore/mythology and that’s more about the past than the present. Also don’t like big crowded cities so the population density also be a problem. Rural areas might be nice to visit, but probably only a week max. All in all I’m happy with things as they are.

    I don't think it's the best, but I thought of the recent anime Ancient Magus' Bride was a bit more interesting and, at least to me, quite different from the usual ones nowadays. Don't know, I felt that it all just works well in combination with the visuals etc. To me it kinda seems like a whole story packed into just over a minute. I guess if I were to make one myself, it would be similar to this I guess overall Neon Genesis Evangelion's has quite some backing among the anime fanbase generally

    I do enjoy the play style of other Zelda games, much prefer them actually. I find with BOTW it’s the same problem I have with a lot of other games, it’s too big/open for me. And I just don’t find the open world concept fun. I’m strange and like things to be quite linear haha. However, while I don’t like playing those games myself, I do really enjoy watching my boyfriend play them!

    If we understand how the rest of the world was acting at the time of Hitler's rise to power, then it's easy to see that the Holocaust may have been inevitable. Whether that would be in the form of how it manifested in history is a question - but it was likely to have occurred. The most significant reason for this is simply because the world was looking for people to blame, reason behind turmoil, and a light to look to. They were also looking at things like eugenics. The best example of this is when World War II actually started in 1931, it wasn't by the Germans, but rather the Japanese that had already been trying to exile western and Slavic influence from Asia. They also insisted that the Japanese race of Asians were superior to all other Asians, similar to how the Germans believed the Aryans were the superior race of Europeans. With that in mind, it is easy to see that it was highly likely that the Holocaust would have manifested in some form with eventuality. I just can't attest to what it might look like - it wouldn't be good either way.

    Baccanno! (Horror/Comedy) Squid Girl Actually watched My Bride is a Mermaid but found the comedy dry and repetitive. Ended up giving the set to my best friend. I think she found it pretty amusing, so it definitely comes down to personal tastes on that one.

    I don't have a top five, but I'd like to add the concept of "filler." Some people like it, because it gives them something to watch while waiting for the story, or they might think it adds the characters and their personalities. Others hate it because it doesn't progress the plot and or it is really not even referenced later in the series. I can give or take it. If it's fun, I'll enjoy it. Or if it does give insight into the characters, that's cool. If it's just Oh, and the obligatory beach episode. This may fall under the "fan service" umbrella, though XD

    Just saw Rise of Skywalker and despite my skepticism, was reasonably happy with how it all turned out. At least now I can break my ties to the franchise on a positive note. I think it’s hilarious how for the last 2 movies the opinions for the critics & the audience are pretty much the opposite. Some reassurance that the public at large isn’t buying into the industry’s bs about the type of movies they should enjoy.

    I just beat Crush in Spyro 2. I'm currently playing it on an emulator, and playing the game takes me back to a better time in the late 90's and early 2000's.

    Pet is the anime I'm anticipating the most. The producers of this anime are Twin Engine, they have produced great shows this year like Dororo, Vinland saga and Babylon. So I have high expectations for Pet.

    Since you’re enjoying Claymore, you might also like Dororo. Ushio & Tora is another supernatural shonen series. Both are recent updates of older series.

    @zeno-wannabe Yes, I think Yuu Yuu Hakusho would be exactly what you're looking for. Glad you are enjoying claymore, it's one of my faves.

    This happens to be one of the few movies I own on DVD. I will have to rewatch it to say mich more than I agree that the story was unique for its genre, offering some different elements than commonly seen among the samurai genre. I enjoyed it.

    Yo, I'm awesomedude20, as you can clearly read next to this post. I'm your anime curator! Technically! Waiting on the Anime tab to get some work done. AAAANYWAYS, being the anime curator, naturally, I know anime stuff. Feel free to ask for recs, I kinda live for that sorta thing, though entirely expect to get Senki Zesshou Symphogear, like you shouldn't even be surprised. But yeah, hope to meet folks around the forum and whatnot!
