  1. I really love Love Stage!! and Hitorijime My Hero. They're both super cute so I highly recommend these
  2. It's beautiful! How old is your tattoo?
  3. I will agree that P4G had one of the best plots of any game I have ever played ^^ Oooh SMT IV. I haven't actually finished that one yet, but it's on the books. I'm a fan of Devil Survivor personally. Are you generally a fan of strategy-based games too?
  4. It certainly is ^^ Which was your favorite in the Persona/SMT series?
  5. For tips, every one had really good tips and I really don't have anything more to add. Just congratulations on the new place!!! But @Beocat, I love this tip. Amazing and really really important!!
  6. Ahhhhh I am so excited to watch Season 3!! I'll take your advice and watch High Speed first tho
  7. I also try and get a look at other people's tattoos, but sometimes it is pretty awkward to get caught staring lol ^^;
  8. Hey there! Yep, I would even go as far to say that I spend more time gaming than I do watching anime. I have lots of games that I love and have lots of time invested in, but the current game has to be Persona 5. I played it last year, but recently went back to take advantage of NG+ and explore the stuff I couldn't get in the first playthrough.
  9. I have a couple of friends who watch anime and read manga irl. ^^ Aside from my best friend, I met most of my friends who watch anime in college where it was arguably easier to pick which crowd you wanted to be around. That and I think that people generally get along well with people that are similar to them or share certain interests. @anime4eva Sure, I am always open to make friends or to just talk about anything!
  10. Hmmm. I guess I tend to like more modern animes or ones that are drawn in a more modern style. Animations that are HD and smooth are beautiful to me and usually serve to elevate my whole experience. Subjectively, I am not too into older styles like Sailor Moon or Inuyasha, but those that I watched during childhood are still enjoyable to me just because of the nostalgia factor. I still love YuGiOh for example. Idk, I guess the bottom line for me is that if the art is attractive to me, I tend to watch it but am open to watching older ones that are tried and true.
  11. Hmm... this one hits home for me. I am usually quite shy and a little awkward when people first meet me irl so it was tough for me to make friends quickly in school like other people could. I have never really introduced myself to others first with the intention of being friends because as chipper and lively as I may be online, I am definitely not super confident or anything in person. I'd describe myself as quirky, sarcastic, and talkative to those close to me, and polite and quiet to those who don't. In your scenario, I would probably portray myself as a jokester because it is close to how I am when I am with people who actually know me. I don't really see the point in hiding my true self just to make people like me and it is an empty existence for me if I do that. But if I was lonely and wanted to make some conversation with others, this is how I would do it instead of hiding away behind my phone. In 1st year (freshman year in high school), it would take a lot of courage for me to speak out but as I grew older and went to college, I just became more content to pick who I talk to carefully and toe the line of how much of my personality should come out. It is natural to be "different" around different friends, but the way you portray yourself should still be true to who you are - just to varying degrees. No one is going to like you 100%, but it's those who can like you despite the things that they don't like that are worth keeping in your life. Does what I just typed even make sense? Maybe... maybe not. Well. I typed it all out soooooooo I will just leave it here. Yep. ^^;
  12. Thanks! This is the best way for me also personally I seriously respect people who have them for other reasons tho... I just like the aesthetic on others also haha ^^ Hahah, details details ^^ Seems really nice to have that openness about you two in work My environment isn't too big of a deal and I've grown a thicker skin since then. ^^ I really like your way of looking at others' perceptions! Really positive thinking and more power to you! Oh my... T^T Hopefully it doesn't happen too often Agreed! Serious respect to the artist and client also... creativity on a complex medium and it's collaborative in most cases which makes it cool. Happy to hear your thoughts!! ^^
  13. Man, I really appreciate this thoughtful response (My day has been terrible so far and this made me legitimately happy). I have really enjoyed reading everyone's response on this topic, but my sentiment on tattoos and piercings most closely echoes yours. I honestly really love tattoos. I think they're beautiful and individual. Even if the design is not as 'original', the combination of the tattoo, other tattoos the person may have, and the person themselves make for a cool story. I personally find it amazing that you were on the path to become a tattoo artist!! (Honestly would love to talk to you about that if you are open to it) I also never thought about how nice it is to just have that interaction with your artist. Really can make or break the whole experience. I'm also in a STEM-related field and I will admit that at times, I have not had the most 'welcome' reception. That's a whole other topic tho. I digress. I love piercings also along with tattoos. Personally, all of mine have memories attached to them and I wouldn't trade them for anything. ^^ Anyway, rant over. Thanks again for your thoughts! This was really interesting to read! Hahah, your coworker must have been really surprised! ^^ Kind of neat that you are surrounded by people with tattoos tho. I can't say I am in the same environment which made me curious as to what others thought about this topic. T^T Do you also feel pain when someone stubs their toe or gets a paper cut? I cringe when I see that because I personally can imagine the pain associated with those (also because I hate paper cuts... they really hurt). Sorry, know you said you wouldn't go into it, but I am just curious because I can relate with empathy pain, but not necessarily piercing pain
  14. The medical complications is certainly true in some cases and some of my friends have had some bad experiences with them (infections, rejection, etc.). I really like customization and accessories so I think that it why piercings are generally attractive to me. I use it mostly to have some sense of self expression ^^ Yeah, I do generally agree that someone should be well-informed and not be drunk when they make the decision to get inked. (But sometimes that is kind of a funny story and may hold some nice memories for that person). Thanks for sharing! It was nice getting to hear your thoughts
  15. Awesome! I don't have any tattoos, but I also have 9 piercings. ^^ Thanks for the post! Ah, I see. Thanks for the comment! Interesting! Face piercings seem to be the least accepted so it is nice to see a different perspective. Cool to hear from you! Interesting POV ^^ It is definitely inconvenient to have piercings at times haha. Really good to hear from you! I like unfiltered comments, so it is cool to hear yours also! Tattooing is certainly becoming more "accepted" or popular so it does make sense that some art may not be as original. But I'd also like to think that there is still some cool art being made out there ^^ Thanks for your perspective! Cool cool. Thanks for your view! ^^ I like that you acknowledge that everyone has their own tastes and I enjoyed reading your thoughts! ^^
  16. Just curious on your opinion or perception of them! ^^
  17. Hey there! Looks like you're new around here :) Welcome to AF~!

    1. XII360

      wanted to say that, but i felt shy, since he followed me xD

      thanks for the follow tho ;o

  18. Okay, that is fair. I will give the abridged Yugi some style points ^^ You are forgiven since you didn't insult the amazing Seto Kaiba.
  19. How... how dare you?! T^T YGO was my childhood so maybe I have a soft spot for this anime, but I did watch almost all of the episodes. I say 'almost all' because I am actually not sure if I missed any and don't want to check lol. I will say that the abridged series is really funny and I really enjoyed it also tho For the general question, I usually don't watch too many abridged series unless I really really enjoyed the unabridged anime ^^ For most animes, I definitely prefer subbed over dubbed because I am a purist and I think that the voices are the best in Japanese. The mouth animations also line up the best However, I do like the dubbed version of YGO because I grew up with it and it is kind of weird to get used to their Japanese VAs.
  20. I remember the days of trading pokemon with my friends in grade school ^^ Fun times. I was never really that lucky with getting any foil cards, but I was happy with the ones I had For me, I was a huge fan of YuGiOh. I was always excited to watch it on TV and watch re-runs when I came home from school ^^ I still watch it sometimes, but not as much. The nostalgia factor is there tho
  21. No worries Hahah I like the way you chose to describe it ^^ Interesting.
  22. Just curious if any of you have taken the D&D character alignment test and if so, what are you? I took this one (http://easydamus.com/alignmenttest.html) and am Chaotic Neutral, which I do think is pretty accurate to some degree.
  23. Hahah, I like it too ^^ Name your next kitty that
