  1. I've just finished watching To Heart, a nice little feel-good slice of life series.
  2. It's dull, overcast, cold and raining and it's been like that for a couple of days now.
  3. I want to re-watch "I want to eat your pancreas" again, but it has such a gut-wrenchingly sad ending that I keep putting it off. I also want to watch "Little Busters" again. I wasn't too impressed with it first time round, so it'll be interesting to see what I think of it second time round.
  4. In one of the places I worked someone put something in the microwave that they perhaps shouldn't have done. Not only did it stink the room out the resulting smoke set the fire alarms off. Immediate evacuation of entire building and when I got into the street I saw two fire tenders and a unit with a turntable escape ladder approaching the place at great speed with all their lights on and sirens screaming. It livened up a boring afternoon but It would be an understatement to say that the person responsible was not popular.
  5. No, I'm not scared of clowns. I tend to be more annoyed and irritated by their silly antics. Apparently a fear of clowns is called Coulrophobia. I just thought I'd leave that bit of trivia here.
  6. I had a look at this as I thought it might be interesting, then decided I didn't have a spare three and a half hours to watch it. Some people really need to remember that less is more.
  7. Some tourists were asked what they thought of Switzerland, they said it was a very nice country to visit and the flag was a big plus.
  8. I've now finished this and found it to be quite a good Sci-Fi mecha action series with a varied cast of well developed characters who you soon get to know and like. It also has what must be a contender for the most impractical mecha design. It also has a very short operational time limit for each mission. Too short to my mind for what they achieve during each mission.
  9. Welcome to AF. Pull up a cushion, or a chair if sitting on the floor isn't your thing, and make yourself at home.
  10. That's one of Murphy's Laws. As soon as you buy a new piece of kit a newer model will be announced the next day! But if you hold off and wait for a newer model it doesn't get released for months, if not years!!
  11. That's an impressive haul of loot.
  12. The whole idea of wearing contact lenses really creeps me out. And as for Augmented Reality I have enough trouble with Ordinary Reality.
  13. This morning it's overcast, cold and raining hard. I knew it was a cold morning because when I got out of bed I found the central heating had kicked in, and it's set not to do that until the temp goes below 15C. I'm hoping the rain stops by lunchtime as I've got to go out this afternoon.
  14. I generally don't have a problem opening gifts in front of people. If someone gives me a gift in a public place I would thank them and take it home and open it there. If the person has come to my house, or I've gone to theirs, for a meal or something then I would have no problem opening the gift while they watched, my friends would probably expect me to do that. If it was a Christmas or birthday gift then if it wasn't Christmas Day or my birthday I'd leave it unopened until the appropriate day. My grandmother was the family matriarch and decreed that on Christmas Day the family must all get together and part of the ritual was the gift exchange after Christmas lunch. All the gifts were piled up in a heap and someone would be appointed to be "Santa" and distribute them. The person would then have to open their gift, thank the giver and display it to everyone before the next gift was given out. Depending on the gift that could get embarrassing. This no longer happens of course.
  15. Currently watching Sky Girls. I haven't watched it for so long that I've forgotten most of the story so it's almost like watching it for the first time.
  16. Welcome aboard. Pull up a cushion, or a chair if you prefer, and make yourself at home.
  17. Yes. There are both dub and sub versions on the DVDs
  18. Zagato from Magic Knight Rayearth is an interesting antagonist. From the very first episode he is presented as the chief bad guy who has kidnapped Princess Emeraude and is holding her against her will and his intension is to kill the three girls Emeraude has summoned before they can become Magic Knights. But it's also possible to flip things around and see him as the good guy because his aim is to protect Emeraude because he knows the task that the Magic Knights are summoned to perform.
  19. Shuji (Saikano) is a great protagonist, he finds out that his girlfriend has become a living weapons system and is no longer completely human, but he still loves her, cares for her and treats her as a normal person.
