  1. Commission of a paranoid monster hunter named Faust! Had a lot of fun with how the posing came out on this one, for sure.

  2. Figured I'd set me up a place to post some of my art here. I've been getting a few commissions here and there that I've been pretty proud of. First a full character sheet for a saucy aasimar monk!

  4. What do I look for and what catches my eye. Well a good plot and storyline that is both believable and consistent is important, it doesn't really matter how impossible or implausible it is in real life, as long as it's written and presented in a way that is believable. Another important factor is well developed characters that you can 'connect' with so that you actually care about what happens to them. High quality artwork and animation for both the characters and the backgrounds is a big plus as is a good soundtrack because music often plays as big a part in setting the tone of a scene as the visuals.

  8. Early in the series Yui was discussing joining the Light Music Club with some of her friends, perhaps that's one of them spying on Yui to see if she really will join up. Just my guess, which could be wrong.

  11. I would describe myself as being more into Synthwave or Progressive Rock/Metal. Even now, I would say that I still have a soft spot in my heart for metal though. At one point, it was indeed my favorite music genre. Some old school metal from back in the day when Wrestling still had great gimmicks. Most people in my generation never knew that Barry Darsow was once known as Smash. Although still choreographed and scripted, sports entertainment used to have a certain style about it. Nowadays...bland.

  13. Kaguya-sama is one of my more recent favorites. And it's not that old a series. They finished up season 3 just this past spring. I love how Miyuki and Kaguya both are some of the smartest people on earth, yet when it comes to romance, they are hopelessly clueless and too prideful, and their attempts to make a move usually backfire on them in some way. And I'm right there with you on being behind on anime. It's looking like that will be a perpetual thing in my case. When AoT first came out, I was in college at the time, and I had several friends that were WAY WAY WAY too into it. As in 'beyond obsessed' into it. Don't get me wrong, if you're really into something, then by all means, go nuts. I totally respect that. But for me, excessive fanboying/girling over anything kinda kills my interest in it. It's a bit like hearing a song over and over and over again to the point you get sick and tired of hearing it, regardless of how good the song might be. I had also stopped actively watching anime in general back then. I had that uphill battle in front of me on top of the rabid fanning out. I allowed those circumstances to skewer my view of AoT. I plan to revisit it sometime in the future and give it a proper chance to watch. It's on my list.... but, as with the other titles on the list, when I finally fire it up is anyone's guess. My Dress-Up Darling was one of the first shows I watched when recently getting back to anime, and it was a great reintroduction. That, Spy x Family, Overlord and Kaguya-sama.

  14. Okay, I KNOW I’m so many years late but recently I decided to sit down and watch Attack on Titans. I don’t know why at first when it came out it didn’t call my attention. Probably because I was only 12 at the time & I was attracted to other genres. But, now that I’m watching it, it’s sooooo good. Currently in season 3, this season seems like a bit of a mess to me because it has so many character’s lives incorporated into the season but obviously they all have a connection to the titans so it’s unraveling slowly. An anime I was watching before this one that I really recommend is called My Dress-Up Darling, it’s such a good romcom anime. It made me feel fuzzy watching it the whole time. Nothing beats a good romance anime.

  17. my school also has a pretty moderate manga collection ranging from boarding school Juliet to goblin slayer. I think there is almost all of the one piece manga. even I was surprised when I saw manga in the school library.

  18. Your school library has manga? When I was at school the library only had encyclopedias, history books, text books and similar research and reference books. When I attended college on a day-release scheme from work the library there had a decent collection of Sc-Fi novels, but no graphic novels, comics or similar reading matter. Come to think of it, the only thing I gained from attending college was a love of reading Sci-Fi. I totally failed the exams I took, which wasn't a surprise as I was only there for six months and missed the first half of the courses. After that I was too old for the day-release scheme.

  21. Welcome to the forum. So what do I think anime is missing? Aside from a handful of underused premises and themes, not really a whole lot. There are quite a number that I liked that I believe could have been written to be even better. There is certainly never a shortage of pretty girls, although I think it would be nice to see more tall women with ripped figures. With that being said, I do think that the trend toward fan service has come at the expense of the plot development of many anime - to the point where the cleavage being shown becomes more important than the story itself is; I think this is unfortunate.

  27. I’m looking forward to the FINAL final season next year Picked up Call of the Night again and got current on it. The twists of the most recent episode are likely to keep me engaged enough to finish the cour, but the biggest obstacle to my enjoyment remains Ko (the male lead). A couple episodes prior a character accused him of “talking out of his ass “ and I think it sums up his character perfectly for me Way more annoying to me than Shinji from Evangelion or Thorfinn from Vinland Saga.

  31. ^That's so strange, as in, my dad loved to tunelessly hum to like alt rock (he was a baby boomer freak, born 1951, so it was great that he actually loved a lot of the stuff that my sis and I grew up with XD). The Police were great. Lots of songs that were both played, and not played on the radio :3 Fantastic band.

  32. I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my dad earlier this year as well. He always loved Elton John and The Beatles. He was completely tone-deaf, and had no sense of timing or rhythm, but he'd attempt to sing Roxanne by The Police as loud as he could when it came on. Didn't care one bit if he was off-key, his goal was to entertain those around him, and he often succeeded at it. If you ever wanna talk, feel free to PM me. This one's for you, dad.

  36. When a game becomes popular enough to be made into an anime it is initially aimed at those who have played the game, but its actual audience is going to be far wider especially if it's shown on TV and that's where backstory development becomes important. Without backstory it's difficult to understand the motivations of the characters. Indeed I think there is a good case for saying that as the anime is going to have a wider audience more effort should be placed on the production of the anime than the game and that involves not only backstory but filling in any plot holes that exist in the original game. Also, in an anime time needs to be given to properly introduce each main character, if the viewer has played the game they'll know who the person is, but those who haven't won't have a clue who the new character is, actually I think this applies to all anime series not just game based ones. An anime series is by definition a fixed storyline and so a game based anime should follow the primary route and include as many of the side routes as possible while avoiding contradictions with the main route. Merging the various routes into one seamless storyline that flows smoothly is not an easy task. Kyoto Animation managed this very well with Kanon and Clannad and while each girl's backstory isn't usually revealed until it's her turn to be centre stage there have often been hints of their past earlier in the story. Sadly the creators of the first series of Little Busters didn't quite manage to pull this off.

  37. Not really a new video as such but, pretty cool. If I am ever over there, I'll definitely have to check this place out. The idea of Dromaeosaurid ( "Raptor" ) hotel clerks is just a streak of brilliance. That is just awesome.

Did you know the first French fries weren't actually cooked in France? They were cooked in Greece. Which came first? I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon. I'll let you know.
