  1. I wish you a Very Happy Birthday. But however high the number of candles on your birthday cake* always remember that age is just a number and while growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional. * I've had to give up putting candles on my birthday cakes, at my age the number needed would be a serious fire hazard.
  2. Today I finished watching Sing "Yesterday" For Me which is quite a good little Slice of Life series. The story revolves around four main characters, two guys and two girls who have a slightly complicated relationship with each other, the two guys want the same girl, while both the girls want the same guy, it's a sort double love triangle which leads to some awkward moments for all of them. Ultimately the story is about one of the guys and one of the girls trying to decide between which relationship they think they want and the one they really want. The story is well told and I enjoyed watching it but I felt that the ending was a bit rushed.
  3. I'm reading a book about anti-gravity. It's impossible to put down!
  4. It's not been too bad here over the past couple of days. We're still getting quite bit of rain, but we're also getting some bright sunny spells. It's still a bit on the cold side but nowhere near as cold as it has been.
  5. The ED from The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten.
  6. Here's one for the older photographers here: Boy: "Dad, who is Len?" Dad: "I don't know son, why do you ask?" Boy: "Well mum says you've had Len's cap on all day."
  7. That's why I bought the laser, it was an expensive purchase at the time, but it's saved me a fortune in buying ink as the toner cartridges last me between 18 months to 2 years. I do have a colour ink jet, but it's rarely used as I don't need to print much in colour.
  8. Welcome to the forum. Pull up a cushion, or a chair if sitting on the floor isn't your thing, and make yourself at home.
  9. I can sort of understand that. Most home use colour printers are ink jets, and full colour pictures use a lot of ink, and the ink can be quite expensive!
  10. It's a laser printer that only prints in monochrome, otherwise called black & white, rather than full colour.
  11. Quite a few of my friends don't know how to connect their computers to their printers, in fact a lot of them don't even own a printer! One of my friends regularly asks me to print stuff for them, fortunately my mono laser is very cheap to run.
  12. This evening I finished watching Tomo-chan is a Girl. An amusing series about a tomboy who suddenly realises that the boy she likes doesn't see her as a girl, which is not really surprising seeing how violent she can be. So she sets out to try and get him to see her as a girl, aided and sometimes hindered, by her to school friends. Overall it's a fun series to watch.
  13. Ah, I see where I made my mistake, I tried to apply logic to an anime genre where logic doesn't apply.
  14. OK, first up would be Magic Knight Rayearth the anime of the first series follows the manga fairly well, the story line of the anime of the second series is far better than the manga. The anime of the original Cardcaptor Sakura follows the manga quite closely, although the cards are collected in a slightly different order but I think the manga version of who Sakura's father was is better and makes more sense than the anime version. There are some differences between the anime and manga versions of Gunslinger Girl and Saikano both are good but I can't really decide which version I prefer. It's been a while since I watched the anime and read the manga of Fushigi Yugi, but from memory I think the anime follows the manga quite well. Video Girl Ai and Please Save My Earth both suffer from the same problem in that the anime only covers the first few chapters of a much longer anime. The Video Girl Ai anime follows the manga storyline quite well and ends at a convenient break point in the manga storyline. The anime of Please Save My Earth on the other hand tries to present an overview of the whole story and ends up as a bit of a confusing mess. Both anime are only 6 episodes each, the creators of the VGA anime made a good choice to stop at a convenient point in the story, the creators of the PSME anime had a problem in that there's no really convenient break point in the story which runs for 21 volumes. VGA has 13 volumes and both manga series are worth reading. In my view the anime of 3x3 Eyes does quite a good job of presenting the first few chapters of what is a rather long and rambling manga, it's been too long since I watched the anime and read the manga, so I can't say definitely which I prefer, but I suspect it's the anime version. I found that the anime versions of Chobits and Angelic Layer followed the manga versions quite well although there are slight differences in the endings. The Chobits manga tries to tie the two series together but I don't think it works very well. I hope this helps. The usual disclaimer applies, these are my views and opinions, other peoples mileage may vary.
  15. So this evening I finished After School Dice Club. This is a curious little series, on the one hand it's Cute Girls Playing Board Games and on the other hand it's the story of how a very shy lonely girl finds a group of friends and discovers a whole new world of fun. The two themes run nicely together and along with the decent artwork and animation the series is interesting and good fun to watch.
  16. I'm not a great fan of isakai so I'm unlikely to watch the series, but the big question is what use would a smartphone be in another world? I mean, without the network to support it and a compatible power supply to recharge it it would soon just be a useless ornament. Or am I just being to serious and logical?
