  1. Even though I'm not American I think they're okay. It's better than just asking, begging, or soliciting money. At least you get something in return. And hopefully the money does go to a good cause. I guess it can get annoying if they're too pushy. Are they pushy? Do they force you to buy or something like that?
  2. What a bummer. I was really looking forward to season 2. Now I'm on the fence. Well I guess the manga or webcomic is still there anyways. Might give those a try.
  3. I'm currently working on making a webtoon. So here's one of the panels. The main character waking up getting out of bed.
  4. Do you mean from season 1? It's been so long since I watched that and I can't remember. What happened again?
  5. It does look like very cheap metal (in the first pic / season 2). Like Genos used low quality parts for his arms. Like he got them from a junk yard. While the second pic his arms look more streamlined. Like it was made in a factory or in a laboratory by a professional. Basically they took more effort in season 1 to detail his robotic arms. I'm assuming the story is good though? Meaning it's still worth watching just for that?
  6. This pretty much sums it all up. Good job @Wedgy But yeah it seems Reddit was just built differently. With it's upvote downvote system that reminds me of Stack Overflow and would seem to be more suited to Question and Answer websites. And forums seem so ancient now. But they're still the best place to make friends online. Even on social media like Facebook. It's hard to meet new people because you wouldn't add a stranger. You would just add people you already know in real life. It is interesting though how everyone here on Anime Forums is a nice person. At least from what I've seen so far. I remember joining MAL and right away I experienced some racism. Although to be fair the mods there took action when I reported it. The main difference I noticed comparing Anime Forums to MAL is that here, people actually engage in conversation. They talk and then listen. On MAL, everyone just talked. No one listened. On a typical thread, people would just post their replies. No one read the replies of others so no conversation ever takes place.

    What gear do you need for astro photography? I think they're expensive right? I'm just curious. And wow!! You guys take beautiful photos. Some of you can be considered semi pros. I've always wanted to get into photography when I was young. I've always enjoyed things that were creative. So photography was a no brainer. I started with my mom's point and shoot camera. I was still a kid. I remember I even had friends who would make fun of me. They would look at the photos I took and would ask me, Why are you taking pictures of things? You should take photos of people? They didn't understand what photography was. They thought cameras were just for capturing events and people. A few years ago I decided to purchase a basic low end Canon DSLR. And that's when I really got into it more. I'm a hobbyist though. I don't shoot as much as I should.
  8. Is that picture of a smiling cat photoshopped? Or is that how a cat really smiles? 😄 But yeah welcome to the forums. Hope you have a good time hanging out here
  9. You're doing fine. Just be yourself and it will be all good. And why do people call you Tokyo? Just curious
  10. Oh wow so season 2 is really a disappointment? That sucks. After making us wait for this long. Didn't they say because a different studio made season 2? And they weren't given a big budget?
  11. Aside from the art style in which a previous posters have already discussed, I agree that the average episode length nowadays seem to be 13. When back in 2005 or so it was 24 - 26 episodes. So yeah anime has gotten shorter. And there are more anime released nowadays. I checked Wikipedia. And in 2018 there were 198 anime released. (Not counting OVAs or ONAs or movies) In 2005 there were 32 anime released. (Not counting OVAs or movies) Whether more anime released every year is good or bad I think is debatable.
  12. Oh man let me think for a bit, it was a long time ago. haha Dragon Ball is one. Me and my sister used to religiously watch that every time it aired on TV. Ghost Sweeper is one I have memories of. Yu Yu Hakusho and Flame of Recca were big hits here in my country. Mostly shows from the Ah My Goddess! Love Hina, Saber Marionette J, Magic Knight Rayearth era. Which is 90's? I think
  13. That's actually true. I realized it about an hour when I posted that. haha I just get the Harry Potter vibe whenever I see All Might and Deku. At least their relationship reminds me of Harry and Dumbledore. For sure there is some Harry Potter influence but just a portion of it. And now that I think about it, MHA is very typical shounen. A lot of reviewers have commented that as well. The usual from weak to strong main character. And it's not a bad thing. It's shounen executed well. But comparing MHA to OPM, OPM is like a breath of fresh air. How about 2nd seasons though? What do you think of OPM season 2? Compared to MHA season 2 or 3?
  14. He will definitely be missed. When I joined the forums he was the person who made me feel welcome. In fact he made sure everyone would feel welcome. I can also see that he puts a lot of time and effort into being a staff member and always did his best. Thank you Archie-kun. Hope to see you around again.
  15. What platform is Rondo of Blood? Coz Symphony is for the Playstation 1 right and Lament is for Playstation 2.
  16. As an older anime fan I also like One Punch Man more as I feel My Hero Academia's target audience are kids. And I don't know if a lot of people know this, but MHA is Harry Potter. At least for me. All Might is Dumbledore and he will eventually die. (I haven't read the manga so I can't confirm). Which will leave the burden of defeating evil to Harry who is Deku. Dumbledore was the strongest wizard and the only one who can beat Voldemort. All Might is the strongest hero and the only character the villains fear. And they are in Hogwarts, a school for heroes. And his Ron and Hermione are his classmates. And this is why MHA will have 4 or more seasons. Because Deku will mature and get stronger and graduate. Just like Harry. And so on. But I do like both shows. I just lean to One Punch Man a bit more.
  17. Yeah as @Vivi Hyuuga said watched a few episodes. You would know by then whether to continue or not. And it's okay if you still don't like it. Everyone is different. Wasn't the sub good enough??? haha But I would be interested to know as well. Maybe a sample is on You Tube.
  18. That is on paper right? And not digital? That makes it even more amazing. I would love to see you post coloring tutorials in the Tutorials section. I've always wanted to improve my coloring. 😄
  19. I actually wanted to work for them. I am currently looking for a new job and I came across a job opening from Toomics. Unfortunately it wasn't a remote position but an office-based position. And would require me to move. So I didn't apply. But yeah webtoons are awesome and seem to be all the rage now. In Asia at least. And I am currently making one as well.
  20. Yeah crazy isn't it? That anime has been around for 100+ years Anyone know of anime from around that time? You usually only hear about anime from the 70's or 80's. But beyond that I don't know. So I got into Anime as an impressionable youth from local TV. As a typical kid coming home from school wanting to watch cartoons. And a channel called AXN was showing them. Maybe 80% of that channel was anime. And it was dubbed. From there on out I was a fan.
  21. Until what part did you stop watching? I feel like if the first 3 or 4 episodes don't hook you then it really isn't for you. I felt the same way at first. I don't like volleyball. I don't watch it and I hated playing it during PE class. But after 2 episodes I was all in. Now whenever I catch a volleyball game on TV I stop and watch. Haikyuu helped me learn that volleyball is pretty amazing.
  22. Not surprising that it's gonna get another season. Considering it's so popular. I for one am looking forward to it.
  23. Why did your ex sell it? Like you were too old for anime or something? But I'm glad you came back to the fandom. If you really love it keep doing it. Regardless of age. 😉
  24. Jade Cocoon? Persona? Can you remember what the graphics looked like? Was it 2D (flat)? or 3D? Was it an RPG? Where you had allies? Or were you alone?
