  1. Hi everyone, I would like to formally announce @Myouya as our new Community Manager for AF. In the coming days we will be looking at focusing heavily on rejuvenating the core forum discussion sections, features, as well as reviewing Clubs and Blogs. To achieve this the extra features such as the Gallery and Anime Database have been disabled, they may come back at a later revamp but for now the main focus is on the main discussion topics. It's obvious AF has had a slump in activity and a big part of that is due to my absence arising from personal and work circumstances within the last 3 years, I sincerely apologise for this. I'm happy to report that those circumstances have changed this year and I am excited to help rejuvenate AF. In the coming days a new Moderator team will also be recruited. Thank you, for your ongoing support to AF.

  4. Hey there, and thanks for the suggestions. Will definitely check those out. I see Azumanga Daioh in your favorites. I liked that one a lot too. I did think Inuyasha looked cool.

  6. Welcome to AF, it's good to have you with us. Pull up a cushion, or a chair if sitting on the floor isn't your thing, and make yourself at home.

  7. One has to live somewhere so you'll be paying for housing one way or the other. Supply and demand being what it is, sharing the planet with 8 billion other people who also need a place to sleep will likely be expensive no matter how you go about it. If the question is "to buy or to rent?" then I too think it is mostly to have something that is yours, to do with as you like. From a purely financial angle renting is perceived as ultimately a lot more expensive. The theory is that renting goes on forever while buying & owning at least gives one a chance to ultimately "escape slavery to the system" or "reward yourself for good behavior" or some such. Historically speaking the equity one has in ownership actually is a good method of storing value without actually "investing" in a specific currency, at least as long as one does not buy a house that winds up being on an earthquake fault or in a war zone. Of course entropy and politics being what they are maintenance and other expenses as landowner are often just as bad as renting so the idea of finally paying off a mortgage to live big usually doesn't work out quite as well as hoped. (Take it from one who is responsible for maintenance on an older house in a high-cost area. It is paid for in the sense that the bank signed the deed over long ago, but taxes and maintenance costs are a non-trivial and never-ending budget item.) There's a component of cultural traditions too. Especially in places that are relatively new to and skeptical of the whole idea of banking and credit physical things like real estate, gold, artwork, etc. are often still a culturally preferred method of storing wealth. Owning a house containing a lot of bling is pretty much the definition of social success there and a house being the most expensive investment most people ever make renting puts one on a lower social level than owning in the minds of many. Finally there's the George Carlin angle. Consumption and consumerism requires buying stuff. Owning a lot of stuff means you need a place to store your stuff. The more stuff you have the bigger and more expensive your place to store your stuff needs to be.

  8. Welcome, hope you enjoy it here Slayers, Slayers Next & Slayers Try were among the earliest series I bought on VHS back in the 90s. I think That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime has a similar tone with quite a bit of humor, but also willing to go into darker territory with the bigger storyline & villains. As far as purely comedic (like the Slayers OVAs/Movies/Specials)I think Rune Soldier & Konosuba are pretty good matches. I’ve been focusing on simulcast anime for about 5 years now, but am also currently watching Monster & would like to make progress on the original Inuyasha. Personal faves are in my profile & sig. If you have specific genres you’d like recommendations on, feel free to ask. Hope you decide to stick around.
