  1. Agreed, I see it as a step in the right direction. From where we are now, going straight to full electric would be too far of a stretch for most people. There's not enough will to make that leap. HEV as you say is a more incremental middle ground and certainly more realistic if we are speaking short-term. Long-term, who knows? More research can develop substantially more efficient energy, and as efaardvark pointed out what we have today will look like stone age technology compared to what may emerge in the future. It's all an exciting concept to me.
  2. I would love to invest in an electric or hybrid vehicle when charging stations are installed in my region! Everyone seems to have great experiences with them. My Edge (which I bought last October after @The History Kid talked me into it, shout out to him) also needs a bath. My driveway is under a tree and it gets frequently targeted by birdie-butts.
  3. This thread is making me very hungry. My breakfast has been the same for about a month. I think I might be having a phase? Two fried eggs, one slice of toast with hummus spread, and my morning tea to get me moving. I haven't gotten tired of it yet, surprisingly.
  4. Welcome Ayu! We have lots of art enthusiasts here. @Xyro, @Nyxnine,and @XII360 come immediately to mind, but there are plenty other very talented hands around! I would love to see some of your work.
  5. Yeah that's what I'm seeing too. I was hoping they wouldn't repeat the Miroku thing. But we do have newer animes like 7DS with that juvenile 'gag' present, so I'm well aware it's not a dead trope.
  6. Please please don't let this fall prey to ecchi tropes. I love seeing women in lead roles but when it happens with anime, there's always a 50/50 chance they become needlessly sexualised to the point some only watch "for the plot." I'll be watching this when it reaches my region, I hope they treat the original series with due respect and make this a worthwhile standalone.
  7. Welcome Celes! What are some anime series you like? Are you currently watching anything?
  8. I'm absolutely smitten with the Handmaid's Tale. I tried watching it a couple years back when it was beginning, but I had to read the books first to really understand what was going on. I'm almost caught up. I'm sad that season four isn't anywhere in the near future.
  9. I generally prefer a dub where I can find it. For me having to read subtitles incurs a sort of disconnect between what is being said and the tone it's being said in (perhaps thanks to putting more focus on the act of reading and trying to absorb the visual at the same time.) This is also me speaking as a habitual multitasker who is nearly unable to simple sit down and watch something- I need to be folding laundry or getting something productive accomplished. But, speaking to the broader debate, when the question is subjective in nature it's important to remember we're not going to come to
  10. I was way off the mark. I'm glad I asked.>o<
  11. So this is going to drive me crazy if I don't ask: how does one pronounce Ruthisian?
  12. I think you could pull off Tyki?
  13. Yeah that one is a head-scratcher. But it's much preferred over outright refusal to wear one. I see videos shared online all the time, adults acting like toddlers when asked to wear a mask. Saw one with a 60-something planting her butt on the floor like a tempermemtal two-year-old and refusing to move until the manager came to kick her out.
  14. Has anyone seen this? I enjoyed it as a concept but I found the MC a bit of a letdown. I understand she acted her age-- willing to lose her sense of self over a boy she liked. But it wasn't relatable in any way. The way she was up in his face at school was obnoxious. He could have been polite about letting her down. But instead he just bullies her more. And likewise she was unwilling to take a hint. These characters have zero chemistry. The ending was terrible. I don't think it sent a healthy message. There was opportunity for so much more depth and sympathy for the characters
  15. Having worn a mask all day every day for the past six months or so, I can confirm its basically part of my face now. When I go to get my license renewed, I'll be wearing it in my photo ID.
  16. If there's pineapple there had best be jalepeños to balance the flavour. Otherwise no thank you.
  17. Was going to say this, but was beaten to the punch. In my experience, if I consume anything too fast, be it an anime, or a docuseries or a book, I find myself burned out much quicker than if I just slow down and enjoy it. It gives me something to look forward to. I haven't even finished the Handmaid's Tale TV series because I only allow myself to watch it when I fold laundry on Thursday nights (my most hated chore, btw.) But by doing that, I'm not only able to enjoy and appreciate it more, but eventually I will reach the end and have to find something new to fill that void, until it, too
  18. I'm sorry to hear But happy to see you back in any case. Old faces are always a joy as much as the newer ones.
  19. I can say this year has been-- in spite of being completely overwhelmed at times-- overall going in a good direction for me. I've starting picking up more and more books. This year so far I've consumed 28 and counting, alternating and trying out new genres which I didn't expect I'd like (legal drama? Yesss!) My relationship with my mom is in the trash but I'm still going to therapy and learning how to let go of toxic family and friends. Our home search hasn't turned up with results yet, but the market is competitive and we have a shortage of houses here. We remain vigilant, and I'm keeping my
    There's two questions about Ryuk and apples, maybe you can have another in its place? And the answer to question 2 is rather unclear. His name *is* Lawliet... But it's also L. First name L, last name Lawliet.

  21. Welcome! I like cats, too, mines just a jerk. Also, your pfp amuses me. See you around!
  22. Why is SpongeBob so angry?
  23. Her own backstory definitely is not an excuse for her-- I'm just pointing out this is a sad situation that happens in real life and Akito is doing a damn good job in portraying it.
