  1. I'm not a fan of "recap movies", in fact they're one of my pet dislikes. The main problems I have with them is that in compressing the storyline a lot, if not most, of the motivations behind the character's actions is lost and more annoyingly there are sometimes changes to the storyline. Although these things probably only bother those who have seen the original TV series. I have the same misgivings about "films of the book", especially when it's a film of a book I have read and have a very good knowledge of the story.
  2. Bright, sunny, very little cloud and 25c what's not to like.
  3. A man went into a bar and while admiring the waitress's uniform he commented that the sign outside said "topless bar". The waitress looked at him and replied "wait until it rains"
  4. I'm currently watching the second series of Magic Knight Rayearth. While both series are very good I think the second series is the better of the two, mainly because it has more of an on-going storyline and less "monster of the week".
  5. Dogs cannot operate MRI units. But Cats-can.
  6. The mechanic told me my car had a flat battery. So I asked him what shape it should be.
  7. You're never too old to watch anime. For myself I find I enjoy anime more now I'm older.
  8. It's what you do if you're family. It was a small repayment for everything they had done for me over so many many years.
  9. I lived with my parents, although in the final years of their lives it would be more correct to say that they lived with me as both were disabled and couldn't have lived on their own so I was their primary carer.
  10. I've just finished the first season of Magic Knight Rayearth it's a really good story and has one of the best dramatic soundtracks. MKR is one of only three series that I have two copies of. I bought the series when it first came out and then bought the 15th Anniversary box sets which are a much better release both in quality and disk authoring.
  11. Yes, the "Unread Content" option is very useful.
  12. I agree with you about Chibi Usa in series 3, she's not quite so annoying and it's quite funny when her attacks lack range and power. What really annoyed me about series 4 was that at the end of series 3 Sailor Moon's character had grown and she'd matured quite a bit, but at the start of 4 she was back to where she was in series 1 and all her character development was wiped out. Actually, a lot of things annoyed me about series 4 but that's one of my main annoyances. Yes, Sailor Saturn trumps all when it comes to power and that Silence Glaive of hers looks a fearsome weapon.
  13. So, I have to pick 3 favourites. That's difficult because they are all interesting characters and have their good points. First place I've already declared and goes to Sailor Mercury, for reasons already given. Second place goes to Sailor Pluto because she's so elegant and composed and whatever happens she never seems to panic. After much thought third place goes to Sailor Saturn. I like the mystery that surrounds her and there's clearly more going on in her mind than she lets on about. The one I dislike most is Chibi Usa, she's such an annoying character, especially in series 4, which I've only watched once and regretted doing so!
  14. A nice hot cup of decaf tea and a chocolate biscuit. I really should cut down on the amount of chocolate I eat. Actually, I really should cut down on the amount of chocolate I buy, then I wouldn't be tempted to eat so much of it. But I like chocolate!!
  15. They probably thought Sailor Mercury was useless because she didn't have a dramatic and flashy attack, she used her brains rather than brawn. Funny you should mention Magic Knight Rayearth as it's one of my favourites and I'm currently watching the first series (again). Card Captor Sakura is also one of my favourites, I like Madoka Magica but it's not on my favourites list.
  16. Of course a lot of us like Sailor Mercury. She's smart, elegant and sensible, she is also cute.
  17. Thinking about interactions between users. Quite a few years back I was an active user of CB radio and had many good chats with people via that medium, but of course it needed everyone to be on at the same time. Zoom meetings have the same problem, not everyone is available at the same time and whatever date/time you choose someone can't make it. That's where I find text based forums so valuable as people can log in read and post messages whenever it is convenient for them something that is even more important on our forum where we're in different countries it's and different time zones, at the time I'm writing this it's 22:00 on Thursday evening here in London and it's 07:00 on Friday morning in Melbourn. Going back to the original question at the start of this topic it occurred to me that if we read a post we agree with it's very easy, too easy perhaps, just to click the "Like" button without saying what we like about the post and I think that doing so would liven up the discussion on the forum, of course it's not always appropriate or necessary every time. These are just a few random thoughts before I go to bed.
  18. Welcome to the friendly chaos that is the Anime Forum. While I wouldn't describe myself as a "Moonie" I do like the series and have seen most of the original series several times. My favourite member of the team is Mercury and I have a figure model of her on the shelf over my desk.
