    It says that I can't take this quiz and that it is not ready to be played yet?
  1. Hope it's not due to something really bad! I always knew Archiekun as an admin, ever since I joined, and he did a fantastic job! Actually he was one of the first people I saw here on Anime Forums. Best of luck Archiekun!
  2. I'll go with excellence. Can't stand to hear it anymore, overused and often used to force people to work overtime or on weekends. What "normal" job would you least likely want to do, in a situation in which you absolutely had to it? ("normal" being something that is legal and not something like drug dealer or hitman)
  3. Try and somehow get some wires, solar panels and a boat to move to a deserted island! Would you still work if all of a sudden you were to become a billionaire?
  4. English native speakers, what exactly does "accommodations" include? I'm going to a conference and they offered to cover my "accommodations". I know that this means the place where I stay, but does it include travel as well?

      Maybe we should demand more accommodations, through persuasion. 🤣

      you can make smileys in italics as well 😂 never knew! But I don't want to use the velociraptor this time 😂

      actually it doesn't matter because my university will cover the travel, so in the end it's always just a thing of which university/country pays for what. as long as I don't have to pay for it, I don't care too much which university covers what 🙃

      That’s good the university will cover it.

      🤣 velociraptor is certainly a option, but not the only one. It is one of the more peaceful methods. 🤣

      Of course, those methods are reserved for only the most deserving. 🤣

  5. @Ryan Dave Jimenez Yeah I think this one from 1917 is the oldest one that is still available. Doesn't really look too much like modern day anime. I think what we would consider anime nowadays started around in the 50s/60s
  6. If there is anyone who knows that straight away it would be great. If not:
  7. I was wondering when his next movie would come out. Definitely going to watch it if I ever get the chance. From the trailer I suspect that it will be as great as his other movies ("exited" is an understatement 😂). I honestly think that Shinkai created anime on a completely new level. It is comparable, but in a very different way, from what Miyazaki/Ghibli did. I couldn't even compare Shinkai's works to most other anime. Since I've studied some literature/literary theory and enjoy symbolism on many levels, I thoroughly enjoy most of Shinkai's movies (which coincidentally is also one of the reasons why I think Naruto is one of the greatest anime but that's another story). They are the types of movies which you can, or have to, watch multiple times to actually get everything. If you are just looking for action you'll find it boring, but if you want something that really makes you think, these movies are the way to go. I would even go so far as to say that they are comparable to great works in the literary canon. The only thing is that I don't know Japanese and suspect that I'm missing a lot that is encoded via language in the movies.
  8. Quite the heavy episode. (are spoiler tags still wanted here?) Now that I know the story, I don't think I could have blamed Raphtalia for seriously hurting that scumbag Idol Rabier. He even tried to kill her after she spared his life. But what the heck was that whole dinosaur squashing him part? Seemed a bit uninspired. Raphtalia really had a difficult life but at least she got to see some of her old villagers again. I liked that there was at least some upside to this, even with the whole Rifana tragedy.
  9. @King_Sama Yeah, but being rude is the standard in some parts of Europe 😂 I usually assume that whoever they are replying to or whatever they are reading might be important, so I don't know, I'd personally feel a bit strange telling them off since I don't know what they are doing.
  10. I'd like to add one thing to what @HanaApril has said about being cautious. I don't know where the forum server is located (Australia?), but I've heard of cases in the EU where people got sued for distribution of child pornography regarding hentai. Now, I don't know how widespread that particular theme is, but if you decide to include a hentai section you might want to check the legal status and if some hentai is regarded as child pornography under whatever jurisdiction this forum is. This might be far-fetched and overly cautious but it's just what came to mind when reading the posts here.
  11. @King_Sama I have a friend who grew up in Rome and is a huge AC fan. He told me that he was surprised at how much Rome in one of the AC was actually like Rome and that he could actually use what he knew about Rome in the game to navigate. Haven't played AC games myself yet but I might give it a shot if I ever find the time, especially now that there are collections for the PS4 out.
  12. I'm not usually in this corner of the woods, but regarding the phone thing I'd like to chime in (or rant). It's really difficult nowadays to talk to people normally for more than a few minutes. Their attention is always divided between checking their phone and the conversation. I suppose to them it seems like a shorter time, but while they are reading their latest whatsapp text I'm sitting there waiting until they are finished. I wouldn't mind if people could actually do both at the same time or if after reading they could simply continue the train of thought they had, but most people can't. And ignoring sound notifications even if the conversation is interesting for both, seems to be too difficult for most. I never had a smartphone (yeah I know that's uncommon) so I can't check my own messages while they check theirs. But then again, I don't think it's too much of a conversation if everyone is checking their phones every few seconds. When I take my time to talk to someone, I actually take my time for them and not try to get multiple things done. This turned into much more of a rant than I'd thought 😂
  13. I'd be interested in what reason she has. If it is because of something related to this I understand the reasoning, otherwise I'd be interested in what other reason she might have.
  14. I was wondering what happened to this thread. Are you still doing the watch 5 episodes a week? I didn't have the time up until now, but caught up to episode 5. I enjoyed it so far, really mellow as a whole, story music and art style. And on top of it, it has a lot to do with cats, that's an automatic plus!
