  1. If you rearrange the letters of “Postmen” you get a really annoyed postman.
  2. I've only seen YouTube clips from the recent crop of isekai anime, but why do they all appear to be set in a video game based on the Middle Ages? It wasn't always like that, Vision of Escaflowne, Magic Knight Rayearth and Fushigi Yugi are all very different from each other. Although they're all quite old now and come from the time before isekai was called isekai.
  3. Today I finished Clannad and started on Clannad After Story. Both parts are one of those series that have you laughing one minute and crying the next.
  4. Looks a nice powerful machine. But a bit light on RAM and storage.
  5. Sometimes I think we are, other times I'm not so sure.
  6. So we have a case of temporal displacement. Actually, I've just spotted a displacement of another sort which u could say changes the meaning of my comment.
  7. It's a good series and one of those that has you wanting a second series, but at the same time it's clear that the story has ended and there is going to be no more to it.
  8. I don't think the series is quite a bad as two of the MAL reviewers make it out to be. The artwork and animation are good quality and the story is interesting if a little weird, and a bit silly, at times.
  9. One of the characters in This Ugly Yet Beautiful World says much the same thing, and the statement forms the whole plot behind the anime series.
  10. Well, seeing as it's Sunday I had a cooked lunch. Steak pie, roast potatoes, Brussels sprouts and Yorkshire pudding. Followed by ice cream.
  11. I spent a huge chunk of today watching the TV coverage of the coronation of King Charles III at Westminster Abbey, the traditional place for coronations since 1066. The procession after the service was amazing and even though I've seen royal processions before I'm always impressed by the Household Cavalry in their traditional uniforms.

  12. Ok, so these two are underage to be anyone's waifu and in my case they'd be granddaughterfu. (I think I'm allowed to post two because they're granddaughterfu not waifu)
  13. I've just started my annual re-watch of Clannad & Clannad After Story. It's still my favourite anime series and I've lost count of how many times I've watched it over the past 14 years.
  14. Suki na Ko ga Megane wo Wasureta (The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses). I found a version of the trailer with English subtitles.
  15. Last night I re-watched the Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions movie which is great fun. I always like it when the movie of a TV series provides a continuation/closure to the series rather than trying to condense 5 or 10 hours of story into 90 minutes.
  16. That sounds interesting, Babylon 5 was one of my favourite TV shows. I've got a large B5 poster on my bedroom wall and models of Babylon 5 and a Starfury in my living room. Somewhere in the loft I've also got all 5 seasons on VHS, but I doubt either of the two VHS players I've got still work.
  17. It that case. May the Forth Be With You.
  18. Each to their own indeed, we all like different series, but we all like anime. That one appeared in my YouTube feed yesterday, as you say it's too cute. But on the other hand I'm not averse to a bit of cute, and word is that CR has it so I might just give it a watch.
  19. I'm currently re-watching the second series of Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions. I always enjoy watching this anime because it has such a great cast of characters and the interactions between them are often hilarious, but underneath the craziness there is serious aspect that acts to prevent the series descending into total silliness.
  20. I guess the governor had better not come to the UK because we have a traditional form of entertainment called Pantomime where the the leading lady is always played by a man in drag, known as a Pantomime Dame. Pantomimes are very popular, especially at Christmas time.
  21. Ah, that old chat-up line put down: Guy: "Where have you been all my life?" Girl: "I wasn't born for most of it !"
  22. A man went into a shop and complained to the shopkeeper that the watch he'd bought from him in a sale lost 15 minutes every hour. The shopkeeper looked at him and replied, "didn't you see the sign that says, Sale offer 25% off".
  23. It is indeed a really good anime. I like humour as Makoto's attempts to change things go wrong and how the story changes when she realises the serious nature of her actions.
