  1. About Overlord...I love it but it feels like it is lacking the 'game' aspect of it. Don't get me wrong, the New World is not a game but I am expecting some sort of feel that Ainz is still living in a game. I want him to encounter at least one player from YGGDRASIL (or maybe from a totally different game) and not just some small flashback scenes. Atm, I believe if Overlord didn't have anything to do with YGGDRASIL, it would still be the same. To sum up, I'd like to see more YGGDRASIL stuff (players, lore, areas etc) in Overlord not just 'levels and a few OP items/skills', but yeah, I just want to say my opinion so far about Overlord. ^^
  2. I like both traditional and modern culture but I would go for modern. I'm kind of a futurist that loves seeing countries develop rapidly, specifically in technology. I love seeing buildings lit up during the night (which you can see in Japan and other developed countries) as it gives me a sense of Japan's prosperity and achievement considering how much damage they took from World War 2 and natural disasters. Buildings such as the Dentsu building and Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower are quite eye-catching at night. However, I would like Japan's modern culture to implement eco-friendly buildings/areas as I do believe global warming should be taken in consideration lol. In terms of society, I would say (by no means to be rude) I prefer when Japanese were strong and fierce, a sense of pride in them, not saying they don't now but it is not as powerful as it once was. Even though they were doing really bad things in WW2, I'm inspired how they are loyal and gave honor to their country, even during the Edo period. In the end, everyone evolves and they do have more freedom now ^^ Food-wise, traditional>modern hands down. Just by comparing the traditional food to the modern food from youtube videos, I can tell which would taste the best, but im just biased hehe. Edit: In terms of trends such as fashion, work life etc, it is kind of even depending on what trend. I prefer modern fashion such as techwear and hyperbeast but do like the traditional kimono types. As for work life, i don't know about the 15th century but at the moment, modern Japan seems to be very stressful for most adults working there

    Anime Reviews

    I don't really do reviews on MAL (I just give star ratings), however if i was reviewing an anime or a manga, I would finish it first then review it. I will not give an anime a review if i dropped it because it would be too biased and can put off many potential viewers. I would only go to reddit, see a thread that has the anime's episode discussion and give my take on it. Personally, reviewers should give a review once they have finished the last episode of the anime or read all the chapters of the manga. I don't know about MAL's review system but I think it lets people edit their review? So, they may do a review on a couple of episodes then edit it again to give feedback on the latest episode etc. I honestly don't rely on reviews to know if the anime is good or not. For instance, (I may get hate for this lol) I looked up on SAO's MAL reviews and a significant portion of it were bad. However, that didn't stop me from watching it, after a couple of episodes I just got hooked to it. SAO is now one of my favorite animes. It all comes to personal preference. Anyways, I can see why people would look at the reviews but if the review is only for the first couple of episodes, don't bother reading it. Only read people's reviews if they have completed watching all of the episodes. In addition, if you are looking for an ongoing anime's review, then you can read 'unfinished' reviews however, I would suggest watching the anime yourself first and if you don't seem interested within the first 4 episodes, drop it. Then again, the anime may be good on the later episodes so if I was you, I would then look at the reviews for the later episodes and if it interests me I would give it another chance. On a side note: I rely on genres to know if it interests me or not because I'm 95% sure that a genre that I hate will just make me drop the anime. TL;DR: Finish the anime first, then review. Not the other way round. Hope it helps ^^
  4. Nice drawing ^^ However, if you really want to improve your drawing skills, try drawing real life objects/people. I know most artists says this but it really comes down to practice and whats better than learning off a reference I would suggest using a reference instead of creating your own OC (Original Character) and practice the perspective/proportions ^^. Here are two illustrations my cousin did using Photoshop: The first pic was from 2016 i believe and the other pic was from late 2017 (He stopped practicing for a while due to studies). He told me that he is laying off on anime/manga style until he 'masters' proportion/perspective. On a side note: He used a reference from google for his 2017 drawing. Hope it helps and Good luck improving! EDIT: shoutout to my cousin @ArkreiZ ! for allowing me to upload this (I told him to make an AF account too hehe)
  5. Hmm...I don't know if it fits to your liking but here are some: Drifters Hellsing Jormungand Gintama Hope it helps ^^
  6. Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo Yahari Ore no Seishun... (as Neptvne wrote) Toradora Shigatsu wa Kimi Uso I'm not really into Romance but here are some that I can remember at the top of my head that I have watched (recommend) or my friends loved ^^
  7. I'm currently rewatching Ballroom e Youkoso (love the music and plot ^^) and OniAi (nostalgic reasons and the fanservice heh). That's pretty much it, there are too many good animes in this season so it can be overwhelming to rewatch finished + ongoing animes at the same time.
  8. Thank you for the warm welcome . A beautiful character in my perspective, is the physical look of the character (personality comes second lol), even if she is an antagonist I'll still like her because of her looks. Idk why but as soon as I see a beautiful female character, my instincts says, "I hope nothing happens to her". Sorry about being harsh on 'ugly' characters, i see them as 'they let themselves go' if you know what I mean lol. Instinctively, I don't feel anything when something happens to them, that's why I thought that 'I don't care' about them. I can see why the straight female audience would cry over a handsome guy dying, it is the same for me with female characters but i dont cry, only get depressed. If the 'beautiful character' did do something really (and I mean really really) horrible, then that would be an exception and I could say that they deserved it (to die).
  9. Thank you , yes i do believe we humans get too attached to characters which subsequently make us more vulnerable to feeling sad when something bad happens to them. For instance, animes like Akame Ga Kill and Juuni Taisen, even though their character development werent that in depth, I still get attached to them after knowing what they have experienced (I had to keep pausing every time a character i like dies...sad T_T). Hehe true, fanworks/fanart do help me feel better but knowing that it isn't official still makes me a bit depressed...
  10. Thank you , yes, I too like stuff staying the same or even better. I'm also with you on the feeling of having lost something, I guess being possessive can have negative effects on the person ;/
  11. Looking for yuri/shoujo ai mangas that has a tsundere girl. Preferably with a sadistic/teasing girl, meaning she will constantly tease the tsundere character which will try to resist. It can be nsfw (hentai) or not. Also, no gore, vore etc of that kind (keep it a bit clean lol) and definitely no NTR unless it is a good one (had to drop Netsuzou Trap). mangas that i read so far: citrus, Zenryaku, Yuri no Sono yori, hana to hoshi, blue drop and touch me NSFW mangas that i read: Slave proclamation, nao kichi, Bishoujo Vampire ni Bonyuu Drink Bar ni Sareru Hanashi and the usual kill la kill/Oreimo (ayase x kirino) doujinshi. Thanks, FriendlyP.
  12. Hey guys, this is my first post. As the title states, i always have this problem: whenever I see a beautiful female character die or lose her beauty in an anime/manga, i get depressed. Therefore, i want to know if anyone has experienced this and if so, how did you overcome it. idk why but hurts to see it, I keep telling myself, "its not real, its just an anime/manga" or "she is human, she will get old and lose her beauty eventually" , but its not working for me. Having this problem made me unable to continue an anime series, to name a few; overlord, blood C and Sekirei. This does not apply to only female leads/MCs but also side characters. I hate to admit that i feel like a white knight but i dont think that can apply to me since im a girl? (maybe it does now that i think about it) I am an open lesbian, so this maybe one of the reasons why i cannot stand it. Anyways i just want to express my feelings and to know if anyone has any tips on overcoming this problem because i do not want to keep dropping animes/mangas due to this... Edit: On a side note, when i see an ugly female character die, i literally do not care for some reason lol Thanks, FriendlyP.
