  1. Continuing hot and sunny with temperatures expected to rise to 31 C next week.
  2. Welcome to the forum, I hope you'll enjoy being a member.
  3. Firstly, welcome to the forum, sounds like you'll fit right in. Secondly, Like you I like talking about anime and often watch YouTube videos about it. Unlike you none of my friends watch anime* and most probably don't know what it is and those that do most likely think it's all Pokemon. *Well, that's not strictly true, I do have one friend who watches anime but he only does so when we meet up and as we live quite a distance apart and he is very busy with work we only mange it a couple of times a year. So this forum is the only place I can talk about anime.
  4. Very warm and sunny, and expected to get hotter in the coming week.
  5. Welcome to the forum. You don't have to be crazy to be a member, but it helps!
  6. Welcome aboard and make yourself at home.
  7. An odd job man knocked on the door of a house and asked if there any jobs he could do. The householder said yes, you can paint the porch round the back. A few hours later the odd job man knocked on the door again and said I've done what you asked, but I think you should know that it's a Lamborghini not a Porsche.
  8. I must be very near the 90% mark as well, and that's likely to increase because my favourite TV programme ends this week.
  9. These two I did some years ago. Went to an anime con just so I could visit the dealers room. Travelled into central London once a month to visit a certain Sci-Fi shop just to see what anime stuff I could get. (this might not sound too weebish, but NO ONE in their right mind travels to Tottenham Court Road tube station in the evening rush hour) More recently I watch between 5 and 6 anime episodes a day. Now that might sound a lot, but I watch them while eating my lunch and evening meal and 3 episodes is about 1 hour 15 minutes and just the right length for lunch time and dinner time. I used to watch TV, but the programmes that are on at lunch time and early evening are a bit dull and boring.
  10. I know what you mean. I remember DOS and loading Atari games from tape.. Beep..beep..beep.. 20 minutes later ...beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep........LOAD ERROR!! Now we can load programs in seconds. CD's and DVD's seemed a really hi-tech step forward when they came out, actually I still prefer having a physical CD or DVD to play or alternatively an MP3 or MP4 to play rather than stream something of the 'Net. But what really made me think we were in the future happened at the start of the Lockdowns in 2020 when we all discovered Zoom. WOW! I could see and talk to 20 people in real time. No fancy and expensive studio facilities required, just a device that had a camera, screen and Internet access.
  11. I'm no good at picking up languages, but I've picked up a few random words and phrases from watching subbed anime, none of which would enable me to have any sort of sensible conversation with a Japanese person! Although sometimes when watching anime I read the subtitles and think "that's not quite what the character said", most of the time the translation isn't wrong it's just the American term for the subject rather than the Japanese term. I guess I notice these more because I'm in England and we have different words for things. It's often said that America and Britain are two nations divided by a common language! When I was at work a guy asked me where the bathroom was, I nearly directed him to the shower room then I realised he had an American accent and he actually wanted the toilets.
  12. So what if I don’t know what apocalypse means? It’s not the end of the world.
  13. Looks like being another warm and sunny day. The weather man says it's going to continue like this for several days.
  14. And in a couple of years time if anyone tells you that as a teenager you're too old to watch anime tell them that you're never too old to watch anime and that you know people in their 50's & 60's who watch it.
  15. Just started Sailor Moon R. The thing that puzzles me about the first arc is, if you're a couple of aliens who've arrived on Earth to steal people's energy, why would you enrol and attend the local school where your lack of knowledge of everyday things is going to make you stand out?
  16. Ah, I missed the announcement of the Macross 7 release. I saw the series years and years ago but I was always given to believe that it would never be released due to licencing issues with the songs, if I recall correctly the songs were not sung by the character's voice actors but were sung by a separate group and they owned the rights to the songs. Something like that anyway, it was a long time ago. Would I buy the Macross 7 release? Well, I guess that would depend on the price. I certainly wouldn't be prepared to pay what I paid for the Animeigo box set of the original Macross series.
  17. I read on Anime News Network that Macross Frontier and Macross Delta are going to be released on Blu-Ray in the US as box sets. I saw episode 1 of Frontier a few years ago and wasn't all that impressed but I know nothing about Delta. Not that the release will make much difference to me here in the UK, the sets are likely to be expensive and it's not as easy to get US releases here as it once was. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2022-07-01/macross-frontier-macross-delta-anime-offered-on-home-video-outside-japan/.187277
  18. I'm not quite sure about the "Waifu" thing, but here are some of my favourite characters. Ideally I'd prefer Nagisa in the centre, but the Minmay photo makes a strong centre image and gives the whole grid a much more balanced layout.
  19. Why do astronauts use linux? Because you can’t open windows in space.
