  1. That looks very promising, thanks for that information. Hopefully Crunchyroll will have both movies at some point in the not too distant future.
  2. Monopoly was at one time the game my family played when we all got together every Christmas. It was eventually banned because it caused too many heated arguments, especially when someone built hotels on Mayfair and Park Lane with the deliberate intention of bankrupting everyone else.
  3. If there was a way of doing it I'd happily send you some of our cold weather.
  4. The closest I've been to a forum without rules were Usenet News Groups. The majority of which have no moderators, and yes there were trolls, but curiously, at least in the groups I was in, the members had a common agreement on what was acceptable behaviour. Trolls, sock puppets and the like were quickly called out and the error of their ways explained to them, if they persisted everyone just ignored them and eventually they got bored and went away.
  5. Well said. That's the best way to honour the memory of a loved one. With that attitude your sister would be proud of you.
  6. This is so true. When a family member passes away you eventually get used to them not being there, but you never stop missing them.
  7. Today I finished watching Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai. With a title like that I wasn't sure what I would be getting, and what I got was a highly watchable and enjoyable series. The individual story arcs were, well, a bit weird, and while there was a a touch of humour in them the incidents were all treated in a serious way, which was an approach I liked. Out of all the story arcs I thought Kaede's was the most hard hitting and Sakuta's reactions when he realised he'd 'lost' the sister he'd known for the past two years were really well handled and presented.
  8. I agree with that 100%. In fact I've got loads of my late parent's collections and stuff, most of which I have no use for, but I'll never get rid of it.
  9. Someone once said "Collect things because you like them and they have a meaning for you. Don't collect things because they might be worth something in the future, because most likely they won't be."
  10. I went through several "collecting" things phases too. I built up quite a nice collection of small model cars and vans but stopped buying them when the manufacturer put the prices up too much, I was also running out of space to display and store them. Each year the Royal Mint produces a collectors set of the year's new coins and I collected those for a while until they changed the contents of the sets so they didn't include the "specials" that made the sets interesting. One of the other things I collected was NASA mission patches, I found a mail order company here in the UK that sold them, and I have all the Apollo and Shuttle crew patches as well as a few mission payload patches. Then there's the army of Daleks and it's probably best not to go into my collections of Sci-Fi and anime related stuff.. . And yeah, you've guessed it, my house is full of what some would call "clutter" there's models, ornaments and assorted nick-naks everywhere. Hey! but the house looks lived in!
  11. My favourite hobbies are photography and railways, two which go together nicely. I'll photograph anything I find interesting, but I prefer to photograph railway subjects, preferably steam locomotives and especially Great Western Railway locomotives. I also like model railways and my current layout is a 009 narrow gauge railway based on a Welsh slate line.
  12. It's not just you, I've noticed that that happens as well.
  13. I usually enjoy a series more second, or third, time round because I often spot lots of little details that I missed first time around.
  14. There's no way that I'm going to spend £££'s on buying DVD's and Blu-Rays and only watching them once! So just about every anime I own has been watched at least twice, and some much more than twice, and the few that haven't been watched twice because they're too new will eventually get watched again! There are a few however that I regularly watch at least once every year such as Clannad, The Place Promised in Our Early Years and Laputa Castle in the Sky actually some of those might get watched more than once a year . Other candidates for regular re-watches include Kanon, Magic Knight Rayearth, Love Chunibyo & Other Delusions, Starship Operators and Gunslinger Girl. I do know all that jazz. Up until 5 years ago I had very little time to watch anime, but now I'm retired and living on my own I'm making up for it.
  15. I saw a photo of that a while back, it looked quite impressive.
  16. Today I started watching Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai. It seems a curious title for an unusual series and I'm not quite sure what to make of it, but the artwork and animation are good and I suppose there's not many series that mention Laplace's Demon and Schrodinger's cat. It'll be interesting to see how the story plays out.
  17. Yes, four books. 1, Lords of the Middle Dark 2, Pirates of the Thunder 3, Warriors of the Storm 4. Masks Of The Martyrs
  18. "Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement." ~ Gandalf (The Fellowship of the Ring: chapter 2)
  19. Have you read Jack L Chalker's four volume Sci-Fi story Rings of the Master? It's about an AI system that was tasked with protecting its creators and decides that the best way to do that is to rule them and ruthlessly control their lives. The story follows a group of people who discover that there are five gold rings that are the keys to disabling the AI system, but the AI doesn't want them to do this and is hunting them down. It's not a bad story, but in my view it's overlong and contains much unnecessary filler, however the ending and how to use the rings is quite well thought out.
  20. I enjoyed Weathering With You as well and I've watched it several times. But I still feel that the whole sub-plot with the police was really a bit of filler and that the film would have been better and the storyline stronger without it.
