  1. This is a saying in technology that basically means, poor input will always lead to poor output. That a computer only gives out what you put in. But I find this applies to humans too. Especially in terms of creativity. Creators are consumers, but not all consumers are creators. Before you make something you need ideas. So how do you get ideas? The easiest way is to consume media. If you want to make anime but have no ideas whatsoever, watch anime. If you want to make a game but have no ideas, play games. Eventually inspiration will strike and the ideas will come. C
  2. To anyone who has made something or attempted to make something, you know this feeling too well. "Can I really do this? Who am I kidding? I don't know what I'm doing." I dabble in a lot of things. From web development, video editing, animation, web comics, making games, photography etc. But I never called myself a web developer, video editor, animator, artist, game developer, photographer. Because I never really felt I was one. I thought since I was a beginner and not as good as others, I shouldn't call myself a (insert title here). As it would be insulting to
  3. That is crazy.... This is my first time hearing of such a thing. If you don't mind me asking, how is day to day life? How is it different to that of a normal person. And back to visual novels, yeah I really want to like them. I think they're something special and as you said they are their own unique medium. I do find it weird how JRPG also means visual novel. In Japan I think. Where we see JRPG as games like Final Fantasy. I guess you do play a role in a visual novel. So role-play. But every game lets you play a role. Hmmm.....
  4. Don't get me wrong, I WANT TO LIKE visual novels. And I've tried many times in the past to get into them. I pick one up and play or read it. Then I quit as I get bored. Then years pass and I try again. Only to end up bored again. Maybe you're playing crappy (or hentai) ones? My latest attempt into liking visual novels was Doki Doki Literature Club. So no. Doki Doki is hyped up for a reason. It's really good. I gave it a try. But I got bored and quit before reaching the good stuff. I kind of regret quitting early though. SPOILER WARNING.... Maybe because you don't like reading?
  5. I'm editing my comment as the issue has already been solved by the mods.
  6. Aside from my webtoon, (mentioned in a past blog post here.) I am also working on a visual novel game called Super Detectives (working title). I stress the "game" as I want it to have some gameplay and not just be a book. And here is the synopsis: For previous readers of old my blog, (which is now abandoned) this sounds familiar. The story was taken from a discontinued project of mine with the same name. Which was supposed to be a motion manga. However, I realized a emi-animated manga is quite a big challenge. And now is not the time for something that difficult. So I dec
  7. Single Since Birth is a webtoon that is currently uploaded to Webtoons.com (https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/single-since-birth/list?title_no=401158) Here is the synopsis: I was on You Tube one day when I saw a video that caught my eye. The title read, What happened to the man who married a hologram? The groom in the thumbnail seemed familiar. Then I remembered a news article in the past about a Japanese man who married an anime character. Turns out, it was the same guy. So I got curious and clicked on the video. I got pretty emotional aft
  8. I think creating a new blog is currently the best way. So it's okay. Thank you for the help and we can consider this issue closed.
  9. When was that screenshot taken? Was it recent? I have the Report Entry only.
  10. I don't think there is a way to delete blog posts and blogs? Or can an admin delete them for me? I want to re-do my AF blog here but keep the blog title.
  11. Space Dandy Rage of Bahamut: Genesis
  12. Finished with the plot for my murder-mystery serial killer visual novel. Not done with writing though as I have to finish the plot for my webtoon now. Working on multiple projects isn't usually recommended but it is darn fun.

  13. Thank you for the shout out. But yes that is pretty varied. Some of those shows aren't on my website at all. But just to add to the above recommendations: The Vision of Escaflowne Golden Time Honey and Clover Touch Maison Ikkoku Sword Art Online Kids on the Slope
  14. Started watching mystery videos on You Tube. I need some ideas so I can come up with a good mystery story. Unfortunately, I also came across some creepy real-life mysteries.... 😬



      Oh man, I am also trying to write a mystery book. I would recommend watching some mystery anime to inspire, currently I am trying to find some good ones for myself I haven't already seen but Higurashi is imo the greatest mystery anime ever; you should watch that if you haven't already, it's sure to get the creative juices pumping. 

      I want my mystery book to be based around the historical Unit 731. Some real disturbing stuff. Anyway, gl.

      You're writing a book? How many pages is it gonna be? That's way harder. Mine is only a story for a visual novel.

      But yeah I've started consuming some mystery media for a week now. I now have nightmares. 😆



      Oh, I'm writing like 8 books. A lot I know, lol. I've written multiple chapters for some and only outlines for others but I aim for 150 pages minimum on every book I write. If they end up multiple hundreds of pages that's fine by me but no less than 150. 

  15. It's funny as we watched that movie at home. Really enjoyed it. Then a few weeks later, learned that it won best picture at the Oscars. Then I listened to a podcast about the director. And decided to watch his other films. They are excellent as well. I recently watched Mother (2009). There is a movie with the same name so I added the year.
  16. I guess you should start with genres that other You Tubers tend to overlook. But has enough appeal. Because if you pick a popular (but crowded) genre, you would be competing with already established channels. So try a niche genre.
  17. Just curious. How does the Crunchyroll award works? How do shows get nominated? And how does a show win? Is it like based on popularity?
  18. Maybe share a couple of them in this thread. So we can all watch it. Or will it be against the rules?
  19. I guess spending time with my girlfriend. Although we spend time regularly. So Valentines feels like a normal date for us. With more people outside, restaurants being full, movie theaters being full, and so on. You seem to have good friends. As they give you gifts on Valentines. Wish mine were like that too.
  20. I've heard of it. It seems to be very big now. I've seen a few videos too. But no I don't use it. What is the appeal though?
  21. Overlord Grimgar: Ashes and Illusions No Game, No Life That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Accel World
  22. This one is 2007. Maybe check out the PV on You Tube to see if you like the animation. Baccano! This is 2010. Reborn! This is 2012 Arcana Famiglia
  23. So I was finally able to stop procrastinating and get stuff done. And here is 30+ seconds of my animated webcomic. 30 seconds is a lot of work for an animator. Although this isn't full animation just limited animation. And to be honest this is the easy part. It gets harder from here. It also feels weird as I don't know where to categorize it. It's a motion comic. But it's not Marvel or DC. There are no super heroes here. It's not a web anime series as it's not 100% animated. It's not a web manga either as it's colored and has some animation. It's not a webtoon as most
  24. Wasn't there a game where you can do this? It was on PC I think. Where you can fuse creatures and get a new one?
