  1. I think the major legal streaming sites provides the. In Crunchyroll for example you can turn off the subtitles. Naturally, you'll 'only' have access to their free titles if you are not subscribed though.
  2. I think the PS5 seems quite decent, especially because of the backwards compatibility. I wonder how many more console generations there will be, however. I'd expect them to run the games from a server in the future and just stream them. Maybe I'm just oversimplifying things though and games in the future will be too big to be streamed in any way.
  3. I wouldn't mind a few 'lighter' episodes (especially after the last couple of episodes), as long as there is something else there as well. Looks like there will be some training with Allmight, so I'm curious to see what they have in store.
  4. Hi there! Just let us know what you think of any anime by posting in a thread or creating your own! Plenty of otakus and weebs here
  5. Don't know if it's on Amazon Prime, but Promised Neverland might be something to look into
  6. Sounds like a great game, but I don't know who that is. Can you give us another hint?
  7. Maybe I am underestimating it, but I think one could pick up the language relatively fast, excluding a large part of the Kanji of course. That's not to say that you'd be talking about the stock market, Kant or artificial intelligence on Japanese television with what you can acquire in a year or so, but I think it would be enough for everyday life (you can always use your hands and feet). Like efaardvark, I am not one for visiting all the tourist stuff. That goes for anywhere I go. I am much more interested in how people live, their mindset and the culture in general. So a longer stay would be more fitting I guess. Still, I am kind of indecisive about it. While the language wouldn't be too much of a problem since I'd be working mostly in English, I am from a quite different culture to say the least Maybe something like a New Yorker (rather direct and 'rude' compared to others) going there. Also, @Wedgy there are lasers so that you look less like a Yakuza
  8. I didn't find a thread that was specifically about this, and was wondering, would you live in Japan? What if it would be only for a few years? Would you even consider living there much longer? I guess because of anime many here, including myself, have some interest in at least visiting Japan. There are many things which I saw in anime and Japan-related youtube channels that peaked my interest, and I would be curious to see. But living there seems like quite a different thing. I am not sure if I could adept to the rather strict adherence to laws and social norms (makes me sound like some kind of anarchist ) long-term. I guess I could get used to the rather insignificant things like having to separate waste in a strict way etc. A different thing seems to me to be the work ethics of it being the norm to work long hours with little to no overtime pay. It's difficult to say though since I assume that it is quite different in different places in Japan, depending on the region, job etc. The main reason I am considering this and asking about it is because it seems like I have a not completely negligible chance of working there for at least a couple of years, and am thinking if I should apply for it or not. So yeah, I would be interested in any kind of opinions you might have when it comes to living in Japan.
  9. Hi there! Social life? We don't have any Just kidding, there are plenty people here who enjoy talking about anime and anime theories! What are some of your favorite anime or some anime you are currently watching?
  10. That's gonna be my title 'Anime Forums Guide' Great to see that Wedgy knows you (there's some outstandingly major 'news' on her side as well which are not difficult to guess looking at her profile )
  11. I asked about this a while ago in this thread and Optic replied https://animeforums.net/topic/5841-vote-do-you-want-a-live-chat-box/ I think if you are being more active here again, there will be a solution for more real time interaction though
  12. Hi there! The more Naruto fans the better
  13. I played the first one excessively I also played Starcraft 2 but only the 'main campaign' and didn't get around to the new campaigns they release later. I hope to do so, but you'll have to ask me in almost a year from now because only then I'll hopefully have the time A starcraft movie on the other hand, now that would be something that would definitely peak my interest quite a bit! (also #TeamProtoss )
  14. Didn't know this before, but enjoyed it. I would rate this a 8/10. This one, when it comes to the soundtrack alone, I find interesting. Now and Then, Here and There, though it's probably not for everyone
  15. I get fidgety just reading this I would probably burst and enter some other plain consciousness if I drank this
  16. this is so random, which makes it so hilarious go giraffes! and homemade bread is fantastic!
  17. I don't think it's the best, but I thought of the recent anime Ancient Magus' Bride was a bit more interesting and, at least to me, quite different from the usual ones nowadays. Don't know, I felt that it all just works well in combination with the visuals etc. To me it kinda seems like a whole story packed into just over a minute. I guess if I were to make one myself, it would be similar to this I guess overall Neon Genesis Evangelion's has quite some backing among the anime fanbase generally
  18. This week's episode was a bit unexpected I think. I did expect Deku to fight Overhaul but, well, not in this way The fight was decent but I don't know, it somehow felt 'rushed' in a way. I didn't really get Eri's quirk. Apparently she can 'rewind' someone's development? What was the whole evolution stuff though? They'll probably use her quirk to restore the others I guess. I really enjoyed hearing more about Overhaul's and Eri's past! What I didn't get was if Overhaul 'temporarily disabled' the old man and why exactly. Curious to see how this goes though, since I expect that Overhaul won't simply be captured.
  19. I did play some stuff that might be considered horror, such as Resident Evil. That was more than a decade ago though. But I never really got the horror game vibe. When I was younger, it didn't really freak me out, and nowadays they do have some effect but I am not in the mood to be freaked out
  20. This year is going to be quite a piece of work. My current position is running out in September, which means that I have to find a new position. The one I had so far was alright all things considered but it just didn't pay enough. I am writing grants to create my own position but it's quite a hassle. I do have a secure, low-paying, alternative if neither of my grants get through, nor I find another adequate position, but I have been trying to avoid this for over a year. Regardless of which of those I get, I will (have to) move which I am looking forward to (since there are a huge number of problems with my current place), and hope I'll find something decent this time (with neighbors that are not out of their minds). Might be that I'll even move to another continent. Currently I am looking into stuff in Europe (France/Germany/UK), North America and even Japan (for something between two and five years). Japan is still rather far-fetched but it is an option and I'll have to look into how probable it is. It might be a great experience though. So yeah, it all depends on what kind of job I'll get Hopefully once I'm settled in, I'll have some time for anime and other stuff in the last quarter of the year.
  21. I just can't seem to find the time to read stuff besides for work. Something I have tried to do is to catch up more on non-Western literature. I did start reading some of Tolstoy but because I had too much on my hands I dropped it again. Once I get settled in with all the work stuff, I hope to continue it though What did you think of it? I'm considering reading this in the near future
  22. I've actually seen Prometheus. What did you think of it? And let me know how it compares to Covenant. Don't have any plans watching something in the near future though (might make an exception for Weathering With You )
