    The human condition has slowly devolved into something that seems to be petty and insincere. At most, people are fake...or put up a front when in public that causes everything around them to become unfocused and disjointed. Add to that the cellular phone and social media and it becomes even more exaggerated. To me it begins to feel artificial and wrong. Anime however (as stated by others) tends to use a real emotional drive to tell the story. Mind you, not all titles are like this, but those that are tend to create a connection between the viewer and itself. This is actually a great trait to have as a writer. To immerse the reader within the story and create a bond between their story, and the person. So when watching it, the even though its animation, it tends to feel, and be more real than the reality of the world around people. Therefore it's not strange that you feel this way when immersed in a anime story. It really is more real that real life. However I digress to say that you should not overly absorb yourself into anime with those feelings as a disconnect can occur in you from reality and fantasy causing you more psychological issues than you had prior. Trust me, I feel the same way. I am a person who seems cold, unemotional and detached from those around me in real life. I tend to be that way deliberately because I'm gauging and watching these people to sift out those that are more absorbed in themselves, and those that are fake or social media junkies. However when watching anime or talking about it I become a more open and friendly person because I have better feelings when watching anime than I do while engaging in societal social normalities. But I digress...I believe that if more people acted like the character presented in an anime, then maybe this world wouldn't be so disjointed and unsightly. JMHO
  2. So yeah, that was the same damn stupid question I got...sigh...but you beat me to it, anyway I slightly educated them and immediately swiped left. Cheers!

    Which monster-based anime was your favorite?

    So when I read the topic title I was like "Yeah, I've got one" but then saw you were talking about Pokemon type anime monsters and I went "Okay, so that won't work." BUT...and that's a big but, I would agree with you that Monster Rancher was the best. Don't get me wrong, Pokemon was alright but geared more for the younger generation and Digimon was just...meh...and I think it was the divergent humor that threw me as well. Of course Blue Dragon wasn't bad, but again, seemed to be geared more towards a younger audience. So I guess I became a settler with Monster Rancher instead. Cheers!

    My Hero Academia: Two Heros Movie

    So just peeped the MHA: Two Heros' Movie and was thrilled to no end that it was released in Theaters on a HUGE freaking screen. Only complaint...DON'T HAVE ANY because it was anime awesomeness. Ain't going to spoil it any (just because I'm cool that way) but curious as to who has seen it and what their overall impression of it was.

    My Hero Academia 3rd Season

    So far really diggin' the vibe this series is putting out there. Some minor flaws but easily overlooked, otherwise decent character development, world building and of course the awesomeness of the variety of quirks out there...come one, who doesn't wish they could blow sh*t up, kick some major ass, or be a frog...wait what? Lol. Question is who's going to see the movie on the 25th? Me, HELLZ YEAH! Can't wait as it's a week away. Awesome part of that, seeing more anime movies being released mainstream theaters which means a bigger audience and more exposure. Long live the anime! Cheers! PS: Worst hero...Best Jeanist, I mean really???

    Piercings and Tattoos?

    There are some artists who are still unique but they're unfortunately starting to get less and less. I've seen some parlors that still do "Freestyle" so I guess if I was to get a tat I would have to shop around before letting someone make a permanent mark on my skin. I will give a shoutout to "Sneakin' Deacon" (RIP) who was in my opinion the best tattoo artist there ever was. Most won't know him, that's kewl, just felt like this was a good place since we were talkin' the OG of tattooists. Cheers!

    Thoughts on Disneyland and Universal Studios

    Disney is that dark corporation that is becoming so large that it threatens to tear the very fabric of our universe. They are the Umbrella corporation that will develop the virus that turns us all into brain dead zombies suckling the teat of the giant mouse as we roam aimlessly through our lives having their garbage pumped wireless into our brains via the terminal that has been implanted there ever since birth. That...and they killed the Star Wars franchise...bleh... Therefore, the lesser of two evils has been chosen...Universal...the next wave.... That is all! One Fist! One Nation! 😎

    Piercings and Tattoos?

    Don't want to harsh critically too much but I find that piercing and tattoo are a great big turnoff and don't like them. Mostly because the art that tattoos use to represent was individual and unique. Now everyone with a taint of talent grabs a needle and gets to jabbing making the art not as unique or individual as it used to be. But that was back before everyone made it a trend and jumped on the wagon. As for piercings, don't like most of them. Ears and nose (Side not septum) are okay, anything else I don't like.

    In the mood to watch a Gundam series

    Yeah and I'm hoping like hell it is as awesome as it is in my mind! 👍
  10. What would really be dope (sorry running out of catchy slang so deciding to repopularize some old school stuff) is being able to wetwire a chip in your head that interacted with your synaptic functions to produce stimulation based off of digital pulse information being passed to it wirelessly through a headset. Though just a "chip" wouldn't suffice, however with the "shrinking" of microtechnology now happening, along with the tiny microprocessors being used in nanotechnology, yeah, may not be too far off. Though I doubt I will be around for it. That may be a blessing and/or a dissapointment.
  11. So yeah misunderstood the post by Reynard Fox. Anyway MAL'd it and still going to take a pass based on the synopsis and genre. Sorry, will have to take your word for it. But I will go ahead and give it 👍👍 because you liked it and I'll trust your judgement. 😁
  12. Don't think I've seen that title...but apparently from what your saying, probably a good thing I didn't. Thanks for the warning. 👍

    Psychological Anime

    Check out Monster...has a little elements of both psychological and mystery. A older title but worth the watch.
  15. Grimgar, just cause its iseki but then I would be torn with SAO and Accel World as well.
