  1. I am one the calmest people you'll ever meet. I've had customers nearly shout at me at work and I've kept my cool and never gotten angry. Put me in front of a video game however and you will see a side of me awaken that you couldn't believe existed. I don't what it is about those things but they bring something out of me lol.

  2. Thank you. As well as watching anime I've got a couple of hobbies that I can now spend more time on I'm also involved with my local church so I keep fairly busy and don't have time to get bored. I was fortunate to have a job I enjoyed doing, I did it for 48 years so I must have liked it . But I don't miss the daily commute into central London.

  5. Hi! Our travel plans have yet to be fully sorted as the process usually takes place later in the year to facilitate the large number of people taking part of this challenge and fundraising effort, all of us are set the same fundraising goal and our main focus at the moment is making sure we reach that goal to help MRF!

  10. No sweat dude, it's really good. I love how haunting the vocals sound with the raspy/whisper-like tone.

  12. I don't have a guitar but I'd be totally gutted if anything happened to the model railway I've spent the last 4 years building, many of the locos are scratchbuilt by me from plastic card and thus irreplaceable. So I understand your pain and distress.

  13. Really beside just enjoying my summer watching anime, reading manga, playing video games and doing other stuff I don’t really have any plan and probably won’t have any in the future. Just a nice and relaxing summer even thought I might also work.

  14. I feel that man, honestly. I love Fruits Basket, even the remake. 3gatsu no lion IS a great Anime, I think you would like it. If you are into a light yet heavy setting, the anime would be perfect for you.

  15. I keep hearing good things about March Comes in Like a Lion, will have to add it to my PTW list. The Fruits Basket remake (2019 - 2021) hit me in the feelz consistently over it’s run , frequently causing me to tear up or lay awake at night. Funny thing is the original didn’t do a thing for me, barely even remember it. While the difference is probably mainly due to the superior adaption, there’s also no denying things that have happened in my life in recent years have made me more sensitive to emotional & existential concerns. Of course that’s also why I try to balance out some of the heavier series (Made in Abyss, Attack on Titan, Vinland Saga) with lighter series (Yuru Camp, Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun) so I don’t get too depressed/brooding)

  16. The only Anime that got a tear out of me was Wolf's Rain. The OVA is bueatiful and moving. It defiently tugs at the old heart strings. Monster's ending was also really powerful. However afterwards I had a sensation of dread that no anime could ever live up to its brilliance.

  17. Must confess that despite being an anime aficionado for close to 4 decades, I never truly appreciated the appeal of catgirls until Princess Connect: Redive’s Karyl made her debut in 2020 (triumphant return in January 2022 woot! ) As you say, 2021 was a sparse year as far as debuts (though Show by Rock Stars saw the return of Cyan, Himiko & a couple other representatives). One notable debut though was Ghislane from Mushoku Tensei who was a significant supporting character in the 1st cour & made a pivotal reappearance in the 2nd that leaves little doubt we haven’t seen the last of her. While technically classified as a beast-person, the ears & tail are definitely feline. And it’s even more obvious when we met other members of her tribe in the 2nd cour. On the more incidental side, Saki from Platinum End recently debuted a catgirl inspired battlesuit And Rumble Garanndoll recently introduced Misa Kuroki , a reclusive hacker/gamer who goes by the online alias Werdcat & has a number of catlike mannerisms & her mecha is also a cat

  18. Glad to see that catgirl enjoyers are still out there. Stay cultured, my friend. Funny you should specifically mention oni for this. I've been watching Urusei Yatsura and it seems they did a decent job of adding humor to the oni characters while still preserving their folklore aspects. I'm totally on board with you about how gimmicky these types of characters can be though.

  19. For me a lot of the show’s appeal was it’s cast of characters you can’t help but grow attached to. I haven’t played the games, but am curious if you’ve seen the Steins Gate 0 anime or the movie (Load Region of Deja Vu) and if so what you thought of them. Also I understand the series Robitics Notes & Chaos Head take place in the same “universe”, though I haven’t watched either.

  20. One of the good things about being retired is that the whole year is effectively one long break. One of the bad things about being retired is that I no longer have the energy to do all things I'd like to do.

  21. What guitar strings you using? The case of your amp is unfortunate, but there's cheaper alternatives for guitar strings, some specifically made for beginners ergo they have a significantly lower price point. It seems to me you haven't changed your strings in years, which is already a no-go for most guitarists (ideal is a string change every 2 months or so, and that's being generous). Judging from what you've written, I'm also assuming that you're just starting out, cause as much as I understand being attached to your instrument, being crazy about rusted strings isn't something I've noticed in any guitar player I closely follow. Lastly, if you genuinely can't afford any brand of guitar strings, being able to play electric guitar is the last thing you should be worried about.
