    The emoji didn't load for me. My bad.

    As for travel restrictions, I dunno about the rest of the world but, the U.S. did do that.

    I do live in Europe so we most likely got a different point of view.

    You should really read the article I posted a few posts up.  You have little to nothing to worry about.

    I thought the emoji as well as the way I worded it would indicate that this was meant to be sarcastic.

     There's another saying too: "you can put yourself in someone else's shoes, but that doesn't mean you have the same information."

    You can take precautions regardless of whether you have enough information. For example, restricting travel to/from China until further notice.

  3. I'm really worried about what is to come...because I got only 4 rolls of toilet paper left. What to do when they are all used up? I really am worried...🤭 

    As we all know the corona virus was also just a topic people made fun of on the internet until things really took a turn to the worse and it amazes me how ignorant some people actually are to call it a hoax or pure nonsense and claim it was made up by the government so they could justify their doing. (for example travel restrictions, lockdowns etc..)

    If I ever had to write on a topic such as the corona virus (Covid-19) outbreak in 2020 in the future and were asked to sum it up in one word then it would be: underestimation. Not just from the people on the internet but also from the politicians of the respective countries for taking measures way too late. Well, as the saying goes...we learn through mistakes.

    I can't help but facepalm on the fact that people started to steal toilet paper from one another. I consider myself lucky to be able to wittness this all with my own eyes because I realize how dangerous it is if humans actually fall into panic. If this panic were to spread like the corona virus in a rapid speed...

  4. I went to the Library and then took a little detour to the lake of ducks, goose and big metallic whale. (It's a place quite important to me as I usually come here to calm down from the everyday stress and take a breather and have great childhood memories with friends of here)

  5. It's like a whistle but rebellious and boundless with no fear, at times whispering in our ear, so clear yet sometimes far away but also near. 

    What is it?




  6. Every now and then...grey clouds appear and the sun disappear(s) thus the sky full of sorrow and grief shed a tear.

    Another word to call the tear(s) of the sky?

    What is Solo Leveling all about?




    Since a portal connecting our world to a world full of monsters and creatures of all kinds appeared, some people have acquired powers and the ability to hunt them: they are called hunters. The protagonist of the story, Sung Jin-Woo, is the weakest of the rank E hunters and barely stronger than a normal human. He is nicknamed by his fellow hunters as "the weakest". One day, he and other hunters find themselves trapped in an extremely dangerous dungeon, and only a few of them survive and manage to escape. Sung Jin-Woo himself hardly survives and is the only one who completes all the trials in this dungeon. He then turns into a "player" who can now see an interface showing him quests. Will he succeed in becoming the most powerful hunter?

    Apparently its pretty popular among manga readers so what you guys think? What is your general opinion concerning manhwa? 



  8. I've had a quite interesting conversation with an acquaintance of mine who exclaimed Demon Slayer to be the best anime of 2019 even going as far to claim it's the best anime overall. We obviously had differing views and opinions on things hence I highly recommended him to watch Vinland Saga as well as Dororo. If we go by statistics like the one on MAL - it's ratings are at the top and even old renowned anime have been pushed back on the list. To be bluntly honest, Demon Slayer's hype is partly justified but it was just people giving it too much credits. The 19 episode of Demon Slayer (fight with rui) was not inferior nor superior to for instance Attack on Titan 3rd Season (kenny's squad vs levi). 

    But this is merely my opinion, perhaps reading the manga too far ahead had an impact towards my view on Demon Slayer. I missed out on Fire Force due to lack of time but will probably wait for a 2nd season so I can binge watch it in one-go.

    My favorite best anime in 2019 are listed in a similar order to @Ohiotaku list but Dororo is on second place and Demon Slayer on third. Vinland Saga did not disappoint me at all. Unfortunately, I did not watch Dr.Stone and also dropped Reincarnation as a Slime.

    Other than that there are still a couple other remarkable mentions such as Neverland and Shield Hero as well as Attack on Titan 3rd Season. Diamond no Ace 3rd Season and Black Clover are both long-term series which had been airing throughout the whole 2019, thus included in the list.

  9. 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.

    Assassins Pride

    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

  11. 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.

  12. 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:


    It's been that way from the very start. During the production of Astro Boy, Osamu Tezuka really couldn't afford to pay his animators very much. The budget was just too low and the profit too small. This basically set a precedent for the entire industry and now the suffering of animators has basically become ingrained into the industry. If you try to be the studio that makes a change, then you'll probably just bankrupt yourself (unless you're Kyoani). It really doesn't help that Japan has a culture of "suck it up and work harder", either.
