  1. The rest of the parts for my computer upgrade have arrived. Now comes the fun bit of taking the computer apart and fitting all the new bits in.
  2. What happens when it rains cats and dogs? You have to be careful not to step in a poodle.
  3. The weather here is warm and sunny, long may it continue.
  4. In "Ef: A tale of Memories" one of the story arcs involves a guy who is working as a manga writer while also attending high school.. Although this is not the main focus of the series.
  5. One benefit is that I've learnt a lot about the history and culture of a country I'm never likely to be able to visit. I've had a few dark times over the past couple of years and watching anime has never failed to lift my spirits and been good for my mental well-being.
  6. I had all that last time I went to the cinema, plus a side order of a rug-rat kicking the back of my seat. Haven't been to the cinema since, and anyway the only surviving local cinema has no car park and is an unhandy distance from the public transport links which aren't good in the evenings. My town's local cinema was demolished decades ago, shame really because it was a nice looking building.
  7. Welcome to our AF world. Don't worry about being socially awkward you're among friends here and we all love anime & manga.
  8. Welcome to our world of anime chaos and confusion. Grab a cushion, or a chair if sitting on the floor isn't your thing, and make yourself at home.
  9. I've just started re-watching Sailor Moon series 1. This is @sunshine's fault for starting a topic elsewhere on AF which got me thinking that I hadn't watched it for a long time and perhaps it's time I did.
  10. A man was walking through the park one day when a gust of wind blew his hat off. Before he could retrieve it a dog dashed over and chewed up the hat. Seeing the owner of the dog the man complained to him that his dog had ruined his hat. The dog owner said "so what!" To which the man replied "Huh, so that's your attitude is it?" The dog owner replied, "No it was your at e chewed !"
  11. What a lovely spoon, and a beautiful tea set to go with it. My late mother collected souvenir and commemorative spoons and would have liked that spoon.
  12. My new motherboard, CPU & RAM have been delivered. For the avoidance of any doubt, the parts are for my computer not me. I'm not a cyborg.
  13. A man rushed into a hospital and said: "I've got to see a doctor". The nurse asked: "which doctor?" The man replied: "No, an ordinary one will do."
  14. I've just started watching Golden Time. A rather good slice of life series about a group of college students, which makes a nice change from series about high school students. It has an interesting cast of characters but what I find most interesting is the way the central storyline explores the relationship between memory and identity.
  15. I'm very happy that the second Violet Evergarden movie will be getting a UK Blu-Ray release at the end of September.
  16. My father passed away in 2015 and the first Father's Day without him was the hardest, although it never really gets any easier as the years go by. The same goes for Mother's Day. The best advice I was given was to pause and give thanks for all the love they gave me and all they meant to me and things they did for me, then move on with my life which is what they would want me to do. Crying a bit is OK too.
  17. I've now finished watching the second series of Magic Knight Rayearth. The build-up to the final battle is quite dramatic but I think the most touching scene is Hikaru's final confrontation with Nova. Overall I think the series benefits from having the creators of the manga involved in the anime, but I still think that the anime ending is better than the manga ending.
