  3. 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!

  5. A quick front and back of Amelia's base design for my reference, a character from my visual novel. Constantly tweaking along the way.

  6. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.

  22. So far, not too bad. Ian is a Tropical Storm now, so wind and rain is picking up, but as of now here in Jacksonville, just some downed trees. Nothing major to report. Nervously optimistic.

  23. I didn't expect that there will be a new season of digi charat since i thought nobody knew this about this series except maybe some older anime fan. I also didn't expect a new gundam series and a new urusei yatsura which I have never watched the original. these are the three new sequel I'm hype about. Just watched the new op of spy x family and I'm so happy that bump of chicken made it because I love their march come in like a lion openings (same with this one). I guess I'm lucky since both gen hoshino and bump of chicken, who are two of my favorite musician, made a song for this anime. I'm also hype for chainsaw man and the eminance of shadow since i heard very food things about it. And I can totally confirm that eminance of shadow will be good since I read the manga and loved it.

  24. I'm doing my best. Luckily for me, I'm not where it's making landfall...but I am directly in it's path. It's expected to be downgraded to a Tropical Storm before it gets here. Good luck within bad luck.

  25. "My Roommate is a Cat" (Doukyonin was Hiza, Tokidoki Atama no ue) A SoL show from 2019, making it relatively recent compared to some other shows mentioned here, but something I still consider underviewed, or at least not talked about enough. It's also a pretty short watch, being 12 episodes like other seasonal shows. The show follows the story of of Subaru, a socially awkward man who has separated himself from the rest of the world, and... a cat. While being a SoL anime, it's also the growth story of Subaru, and his companionship with Haru, the cat. One thing I really like about the show is that it shows both the perspective of both Subaru (human) and Haru (cat). This bring really hilarious moments but also heartfelt and touching moments. It's not often you get to see an anime that's revolved around pets! MAL here for the show (the reviews on MAL do a much better job at explaining than I do) Also the opening song is one of my favorites of all time

  26. Here are my beloved children It's pretty obvious who they are, but I'll say it anyways. Kirito and Asuna (SAO), Sakura Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka (VOCALOID) and, ofc, Flareon (Pokémon). I also have some Pokémon stuff but I'm too lazy to take a picture

  27. 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.

  30. I've looked over my anime list, and it turns out I've watched just shy of half of the shows I've completed a second time. Which is pretty crazy, and that doesn't factor in shows I've rewatched more than once... which is Fate/Zero standing tall at five total watches, Steins;Gate coming in just under at 4, and Psycho Pass and Madoka Magica tying at third place at 3 total watches. I do usually watch a show solo and if I think it any good I usually watch through it again with my brother. Monster, Code Geass, Death Note, Ergo Proxy all got additional watches because of that. And I sat through Monster back to back. With the Netflix release announced (hoping that includes UK) I'm going to have to do a third watch through - maybe with some non-anime watchers to show them that anime has some good shows to offer.

  32. Most excited for Mob Psycho 100 III. For sequels, I'll be watching BNHA, SxF and Fumetsu no Anata e. I hope the new season of BNHA is better than the previous few.. For new series, Chainsaw Man and Bocchi the Rock. BtR seems similar to K-ON, so I think I'll enjoy it.

  33. 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.

  35. Shion is definitely the primary source of ecchi in that one. MC is a huge pervert, so I’d say yeah. Definitely Well “the apple doesn’t fall from the tree if you’ve seen her mom in the tv adaption, plus I seem to remember a good bit of implied lewdness with Peorth. If we’re talking ecchi in general without regards to any similarities, some nostalgic faves https://myanimelist.net/anime/366/AIKa (The original storyline at least has some similarities to Moonraker) https://myanimelist.net/anime/1082/Hikari_to_Mizu_no_Daphne https://myanimelist.net/anime/370/Burn_Up_Excess https://myanimelist.net/anime/6166/Asobi_ni_Iku_yo https://myanimelist.net/anime/241/Girls_Bravo__First_Season https://myanimelist.net/anime/4063/Sekirei https://myanimelist.net/anime/581/Honoo_no_Labyrinth And more recently https://myanimelist.net/anime/39463/Gleipnir

  37. I will certainly try to watch it sometime in the future. I'm sure AoT was/is popular for good reason. And I loved My Dress Up Darling! The first time I saw it was on my YT recommendations. It was a clip of the scene where Gojou was taking Marin's inseam measurement (if you've watched the show, you know which scene I'm referring to). I looked into where I could watch the show, and signed up for Funimation's free trial. Watched it through in about 2 days time. Yes, it was definitely a cute show. Almost made me want to try my hand at making cosplay outfits. Would love to see how the relationship between Marin and Gojou unfolds further. Spy x Family was undoubtedly my favorite series of the '22 spring season. I'm excited for October when they finally start airing the new episodes for the 2nd cour! I'll beat the door down to watch this show.... even if damaging my property doesn't help the situation.

  38. Alice 19th by Yu Watase is good. The basic premise is that words have real power, as Alice finds out when she wishes her older sister would disappear. Don't be fooled by the tone of the early chapters, the story gets darker as it progresses.

  41. 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.

  44. Just received these three DVD sets. Little Busters is a series I've thought about watching for several years, but various reviews, comments and YouTube clips had me wondering if it was a series I'd like, and the DVD sets were rather expensive and certainly more than I was prepared to pay for a series I might not like. Then I found an on-line shop doing a clearance offer, all three sets for £12 and free postage, it was an offer I couldn't refuse.
