  1. Which one do you prefer as Main Character? I personally think the amount of MC's with heroic, righteous traits are common to the point you could fill an ocean, whereas MC's with evil intentions and dark schemes can be counted in one's hand. Surprisingly, most of these MC's with a wicked, shrewd and evil personality tend to be loved by the crowd. Death Note, Code Geass and Saga of Tanya the Evil (Youjo Senki) are a few to name. Why do you think is it so? Third and last question is, Why are there less anime with an evil MC? Any recommendations are warmly appreciated! If you know any Anti-Hero anime you think deserves praise, feel free to mention it.

    The Night Sky really is beautiful while the moon is shining in it's full glory
  3. Let's say there was potential (although the male MC looks like Kirito) but it went all down the drain with those loli quarrels and magic fights. I really don't know if this was just a coincidence but for the KyotoAni Fire to take place while they were working on Fire Force...is pretty upsetting and saddening. Well, I read the manga of Fire Force in beforehand and decided to drop the series at episode 2. If the second cur is good enough then feel free to mention me here @Ohiotaku
  4. The Photography Club will be hosting seasonal events where you can post pictures for the specific season. What comes into your mind when you think of Fall? Do you think of flying a kite while the trees gradually lose their leafs? Or is it pumpkins? Halloween? Rain? There are numerous amount of things you could have in mind but do you capture those precious moments of Fall? If you do then feel free to share them right here. I will be starting with this one as it's common but yet unique to only Fall.
  5. You can't really compare Japan to a country like USA or other western countries. Anime industry had little to no changes in terms of work conditions within all these years, thus it's hardly possible to change it now, all of a sudden. Take for example, game developers (who share some similarities as animators in japan), it's a job solely driven by passion. If you really wanted to make a good living out of coding, wouldn't you work in a job-field with a better salary and with the assurance of staying in the company for another couple years. Job contracts for game devs usually go for as long as the project lasts. It was also mentioned and explained in the video why a change is difficult to be made - watch from here on wards. I have found this on reddit and can agree upon many points he stated below:
  6. What is your take on this video below? Do you think Animators deserve more recognition about their work as well as have a better work condition? Is being an animator in Japan the least paid job and how it's compared to an animator living outside of Japan? Share your thoughts below...
  7. Ah, guess what happened after a couple minutes of taking this picture? It suddenly started to rain and I came back home soaked in water.
  8. I feel like Special 7 will be good enough to watch, especially with the introduction of a new villain we could see in the end of the first episode. Don't really have much to add concerning Fairy Gone, plot-wise it's a joke but the idea of being possessed by animal like creatures possessed by fairies is something uncommon and unique that I wouldn't mind the bad plot. Most likely, I won't have the time to watch Granblue 2nd Season. Not necessarily an anime i've been looking forward to watch since the first season was merely good enough as a way of passing time when you got nothing else to watch. No clue about Assassin Pride so I will give it 3 episode. (anime cover didn't really impress me)
  9. I laid my eyes upon Radiant 2nd Season, Ahiru no Sora, Fairy Gone 2nd Season & Special 7. Also can't wait for the third season of Psycho Pass that will be airing in 2 weeks. If you are curious about a full list of anime going to be released this fall then be sure to check this website. https://anichart.net/Fall-2019
  10. It's raining currently and my bike ends up getting wet again. (happened last week) I put a bag around the saddle to keep it dry. Unfortunately, there is no place with a roof nearby where I could put it down until the rain is over.
  11. If you are living in a place where daily life goes by pretty quick then you've probably experienced quite a handful of beautiful, weird and fascinating moments. Did you ever think of standing still and capturing the moment of your life and share it with others? Could be anything, really. Maybe a cappuccino you are enjoying or a cake you just baked. Whatever it is, share it here. Let's start with this one right here!
  12. I've gotten into photography recently and knowingly some of you around the forum share the same passion - founded the photography club. Surely, some of you are confused and aware of the club having had a different name and focus which was primarily on Light Novel. What happened to the Light Novel Club, you may ask? My interests have shifted over the years as well as activity wise. A Club doesn't last long if you don't keep it active as the leader/founder. It's the same even in anime, once a club has no members or produce results, it will close down and be replaced by another club. Frankly speaking - I reached the limit of creating clubs so I had to resort to closing down the Light Novel Club. Anyways! Welcome to the Photography Club!
  13. I will have to say that the 10th episode was visually the best so far and in general the best episode to date, partly due to Askeladd showing a tiny bit of his real self that really makes him to my favorite character in Vinland Saga. I really wish Thorfinn would try to comprehend the wisdom Askeladd shared with him.
  14. What type of anime hairstyle do you like? Feel free to name the character and post pictures of it and why do you like it. Is it a hairstyle you have yourself, perhaps? Comment below and let's find out if there are any similarities in how we choose our favorite hairstyle in anime. To start things off: Mikoto from K Project and Luculia from Violet Evergarden. I like Mikoto's hairstyle because it reflects his character and him as the Red King, looks also like a lion-mane. I honestly don't have a single clue about female hairstyles but Luculia's hairstyle looks pretty unique from my perspective. Mikoto Suoh Luculia Marlborough
  15. Haven't seen this one yet but it feels to be not the type of anime I would watch. Just Because
  16. It may seem somewhat unreasonable to talk in high regards of him after the last couple episodes but the Fire Pillar aka Kyojuro is my second favorite Pillar after Giyu.

    Hey, is that me over there? I gotta admit I do look delicious.
  18. I should do more biking now since the weather is rather refreshing with the cold wind blowing in my face.

      You may be able to come across a good used bike @Illusion of Terra I have a habit of finding nice ones all the time that people abandon at thrift stores. But I do live in a vacation town, so perhaps that may have something to do with it.

      @Muco I love riding mountain bike trails around here! Its so much fun, but I'm definitely out of shape and I can tell when I'm on one. Challenging, but I also love doing jumps over the outdoor obstacle course. You have one near you?

    3. Muco


      @Seshi Unfortunately, we don't have any mountains nearby but we do have huge forests and the roads are rather rocky here. You have to be wary of the sludge in this season since raining will be a common thing but this makes it more challenging and exciting to take out your bike and ride it in the forest. There is also a road that leads to a lookout tower from which you can look upon the trees and even see a glimpse of the lake.

      We don’t have mountains close by either, they just call it mountain biking when you’re on a “mountain bike” and going on a trail here designed to mimic a mountain path. It’s fun, there’s cliffs you can fall off of if you’re not careful, but it wouldn’t be like falling off an actual mountain 😁

    Post your Sky View

    I liked the ocean one from @Beocat and the one taken atop the hill by @efaardvark. I wonder how it would look like if it were to be taken at night, with all the stars shining. Lately, I had the idea of visiting the Television tower (highest building of the city) and take a picture of the sunset. Will probably do it soon as this thread lacks beautiful sunsets/sunrises. @Beocat @efaardvark @Seshi Let's see who can catch the most beautiful sunset, are you in? Anybody is welcome to participate.
  20. The Sky is a rather vast place far of reach for some of us. I've seen some astounding sky views in my life and my mood tends to be easily influenced by the sky. Did you ever look up on the sky and thought about putting it on camera? Any favorite place where you like to look up on the sky, for example at nights or sun dawns? It could be your childhood hangout place or just from the balcony of your apartment, while you reminisce about the past. Whatever it is - Feel free to share your current view of the sky. Of course, you can do this with just your smartphone or any other device of your choice. (I believe the quality of the camera in smartphone's are quite capable of these days) I will be starting with the first one, taken from my balcony. As you see, some of the last sun rays of the day are hidden away by the clouds.
  21. I agree with several anime listed here. Made in Abyss (around when Nanachi is introduced) and Wolf Children (was thinking about adding this to the picture above tbh) have a really great story that can bring down a tear or two. Ghibli Movies tend to be very emotional and can leave you with an empty feeling afterwards, whether you burst with joy or break into tears is something you make up in your mind yourself. Wolf Rain is also a must-watch and a great addition to the list of tearjerkers but it might be not everyone's cup of tea.
  22. After watching Bunny Girl Senpai for 4 episodes - I have had the urge desire to try shoko sticks with energy drink as reference to the third episode. Honestly the anime cover was what kept me away from watching it until now but this was in the recommendation page of Just Because so I had to give it a chance. Just to find out that it has nothing to do with bunny girls. A little disappointment...okno.

      The problem with the seasonal ones is not many people watch a lot of series as they air. Participation on the  annual ones is usually higher because it allows more time to watch and a bigger pool of candidates.

      I think the members came up with it because they felt CR’s “official” awards show was  too commercial/main stream. Case in point: CR “official” anime of the year 2018 was Devilman Crybaby (a Netflix series no less 🤣). The form based one was A Place Further than the Universe. Hard to imagine a bigger style gap.

    3. Muco


      I think the pretext of seasonal topics should be to give the people who are watching less anime a hint of what anime to take into consideration. It's actually a good transition into the annual threads but that's just my 2 cents on this. Unless there is no or a small amount of participation.

      I have "A Place Further than the Universe" on my watch-list but haven't gotten around watching it yet.

    4. Seshi


      @Muco If you’re interested we can work on this together for and “end of year” awards 

  23. Don't click this spoiler unless you are up with the latest episode of Demon Slayer.
