    It took me awhile to really pick one since there are so many characters on the show, but my favorite character is Eijiro Kirishima AKA Red Riot. Second to Midoriya I think Kirishima is the strongest person in the class strength wise and he's done something not many people have been able to do, become friends with Bakugo.

    Hey, I'm just a 23 years old female who resides in California. I've joined previous communities like MyAnimeList before, but it's been awhile since I've jumped back into meeting others. My favorite anime do happen to include mainstream series like One Piece, Gintama, Hunter x Hunter, and others. However, I particularly like series that are more Slice of Life. Aside from anime, I do like to read manga as well as manwha. In terms of what I have been enjoying this season I so far have found myself looking forward to Beastars, Houkago Saikoro Club, Mairimashita! Iruma-kun, Hoshiai no Sora, Ascendence of a Bookworm, Kono Oto Tomare! 2, and Watashi, Nouryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne!. Others I've been watching from last season include Dr. Stone and Vinland Saga. Feel free to leave me a message as I'm always glad to meet and make new friends. (That and I'm bad at taking the initiative myself.) Thanks to all who bothered reading this!

    Just found a place that has "Science Fiction and Fantasy", and "Sword and Sorcery" genres. WTF?? Why bother to have two separate categories if there's no meaningful separation? "Science Fiction" IS NOT the same thing as "Fantasy", and it is annoying as heck to have to dig through the one to find the other! No name or link because I don't want to risk sending them any clicks.

    Hello all. I already knows some basics about how to draw body male and female, foreshortening, perspective, cloth folds and shadows. I wonder how should I improve from here? I still need to memorize some basic designs and poses maybe I should start copying practice on some poses? Maybe I need to improve my drawing lines? Thank you.

    Didn't see one of these so I thought I'd make one! Pretty much if you're looking for specific pokemon on Sword/Shield or have a pokemon that is up for grabs just post it below!

    Local used bookstores and anime conventions. Most of what is on ebay is pirated. You could always wait for a rerelease as well. Happens a lot these days.

    Unfortunately it seems increasingly rare for Netflix & Crunchyroll to make their “exclusive” titles available on discs. Guess it’s their way of exercising control. I personally would love to own copies of Konosuba, Yuru Camp, Little Witch Academia & A Place Further than the Universe.

    I've just used Amazon lately. No good place for English dubs really it seems. I've been trying to find an English dub BD now for weeks of Fate/Apocrypha, and no luck anywhere though...bummer.

    That’s the tricky part Amazon, maybe? I primarily use Righrstuf since they have both a pre-order & recent additions link on the home page. While I believe they ship internationally, pretty sure their listings are just region 1

    Welcome aboard. "Intense High School Weeb" - sounds like an amazing occupation. Good choice on the favorite topic, though...Hetalia hurts my head. If you have any questions, feel free to holler.

    I'm 'reading' (audiobooking) my first book in what feels like forever. I heard about 'Unfollow' from an interview with its author Megan Phelps-Roper- yes, that Phelps-Roper- on TDPS podcast and I've never been sucked into a book so fascinating. It's a memoir in which she opens up about her life growing up in the Westboro Baptist Church, and how she subsequently left the church and by extension her family. I'm always interested in the stories of people who have escaped cults, and at first that's what I thought this was. But the more I learn about the family's origins and Megan's recollections of her childhood, I'm seeing a slightly different framing of it all (though I still find their messages highly revulsive.) If you're looking for a new book to pick up, I'm recommending this one!

    I know my favorite series are kind of typical. Hello! What are your top favorite series? Cool I get you. I'm like that with series every season since the first episodes aren't always impactful and there are series that you have to keep watching to see if they get any better or interesting. It's probably best that you wait until they're done airing Dr. Stone. Hopefully, you'll like it when you start it. I personally think it's a pretty solid series from watching it thus far. You have premium membership with Crunchyroll? Planetes was a series I had a hard time determining if it was a serious or comical type of series because of how some episodes there would be dangerous or dark situations which would either be treated lightheartedly like it was a joke, but on the other hand there were others were it was serious. (Like that one episode where Hoshino was being chased by the ninja tenants and along the way he looked like he was crushed by those metal beams.) On the other hand, it got much darker later on in the series with Hoshino's obsession with space going out of control. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the series though. I was very happy with the Tanabe and Hoshino coupling. I have yet to pick up Ghost in the Shell. I have it added to my plan to watch list, but it's not often that I'm in the mood for series with that kind of heavy tone to them. I always do get around to watching them though so hopefully sometime soon I can try picking it up. I only know general info about things like Star Wars and Star Trek. I have watched the movies of Star Wars and random episodes of Star Trek, but they aren't things that have ever compelled me to watch them to be honest. I can see why you may see series and such in a more critical light if you what you know is that diverse. Handwavium?

    Pokemon Sword (Switch) Started playing this at like 10PM last night. So far the game is pretty adorable. I don't understand how people (who haven't even played the game) are saying the graphics are that of the 3DS. Understandably they will never be as good as PC, PS4 or Xbox but Sword and Shield are definitely a lot better than the DS ones. Anyway, I'm enjoying it and cannot wait to be done with work so I can binge play it more, lol.

    Which one do you prefer as Main Character? I personally think the amount of MC's with heroic, righteous traits are common to the point you could fill an ocean, whereas MC's with evil intentions and dark schemes can be counted in one's hand. Surprisingly, most of these MC's with a wicked, shrewd and evil personality tend to be loved by the crowd. Death Note, Code Geass and Saga of Tanya the Evil (Youjo Senki) are a few to name. Why do you think is it so? Third and last question is, Why are there less anime with an evil MC? Any recommendations are warmly appreciated! If you know any Anti-Hero anime you think deserves praise, feel free to mention it.

    So yeah “heroic” doesn’t really seem to fit (though personally I think Chise is supposed to be the actual protagonist).

    Playing Pokemon Sword, its already better then lets go. Glad they got rid of the motion controls. Such a pain catching mons with the motion controls. Its back to get the pokemon down to low HP then catch them.

    I am displeased. It is way too early to be this cold.

    Heroes are easier to write. Their intentions, motivation, and morals are straightforward and typically not very complex. The story presents a problem and the hero is created to solve that problem. Anti heroes however are very different. An anti hero has intentions and motivations that are separate from the problem and that they will continue to pursue despite the presence of the problem. They aren't made to solve the problem but rather circumstances generally will force them to deal with it in their own way. This doesn't make all of them necessarily evil, but in my opinion preoccupied instead. Good or bad, they have other pursuits on the brain. Evil characters however as a MC typically have to have "good" characters in their "party" (harem, friends, group, whatever) to tone them down enough for most people to like them and to make them more relatable to the masses. I like both heroes and anti-heroes. Some stories work better with one as opposed to the other.

    I think heroic characters can sometimes come across as being unrealistic/unrelateable since they are so cliche. And in some cases even self righteous. On the other hand making a character truly amoral or evil can make them unlikeable. For series with anti hero MCs, Ains al Goown from Overlord is the most extreme example I can think of with the possible exception of Light from Death Note. I think Emiya Kiritsugu from Fate Zero might qualify, though he doesn’t seem all that bad compared to some of the characters. Finally I’ll mention Askeladd from Vinlsnd Saga. While not the MC he’s by far the series’ most interesting character & definitely more likable than Thorfinn. He cones across as more of a cynical opportunist than a truly evil person.

    Let Go Pop the champagnes And roll out the chains Fire in my veins Hold a gun to my brains And go! If three is a crowd we're waging war tonight Riot in the streets under flickering candle light And no one can stop us, no matter how bright For we see the world through touch not sight So if anyone dares to interrupt our delight This vision of vampiric gluttony will sure ignite Fire in the halls, who would dare fight? Listen to the calls and come, take flight Let go! It's an epiphany, the way we live One day at a time is all we give No regrets brings no need to forgive So we live in lust and in lust we outlive In this castle we drink blood: our own, another's, unknown But if you do not wish to taste it, you can give up your throne Take solace in the knowledge you are safe, both blood and bone For when you give up your commanding and assertive tone The power you'll feel under another is just the stepping stone Let go! Too many delicacies to list in word alone, my boy Come, take joy in knowing you can be our eternal toy With words sealed within our throats we surely enjoy Every minute, every moment every second we employ For pain, for pleasure, the line between we doth destroy And if you wish to join us ... I could use a whipping boy Lust is ever lasting and in this castle we adore it Adorn it in blood covered jewels that glow when moonlit For we riot in the midnight hours when God himself has quit When candle light is all we have to see each misfit Eternally clothed in the roles of submissive and dominate For who can hear those preaching the holy writ? Holy water hath no power if it cannot stop the hypocrite So in the dark and wicked hours we all, in some way, submit To our masters, to our lovers, to the lustful acts we commit For no one has ever escaped this moonlit candle pit Wherein we all indulge on the blood where our hearts split Let go!

    Maybe 3. It'd disappear up its own rear end, be made almost entirely of plastic, and would be the epitome of irony. Also, you wouldn't be allowed in because it'd be walled off from the rest of the world.

    I’d actually been expecting them to try and more with him since he’s the only character who really seems to get along with Bakugo I was actually amused at the villain with the blades sticking out of his hands complaining about how useless his quirk is, since it’s basically the same as Wolverine (though I guess it’s not that badass without the healing factor & indestructible skeleton) ) Also how Fat Gum was basically Blob (guess it’s my former X-men fanaticism resurfacing )

    I resemble that remark.. or at least my garage does.
