  1. I'm up for it. Will send my charas.
  2. I sent someone a link to [B]Weight[/B] by [B]Isis[/B] on Youtube earlier, and have since been trapped clicking between the tracks on [B]Oceanic[/B] in a totally random fashion. Isis seems to have that effect on me where once I start listening, I can't really pull myself away - their mood is so distinct and sort of magnetic. I still don't think there is a post-metal band that matches them yet.
  3. I have been completely obsessed with Entourage for the past few months. It's just so perfect - the characters are awesome, the plot is great, every episode is funderful, and there are plenty laugh-out-loud or 'yes!' moments throughout. As an aspiring moviemaker, it's very inspiring and exciting to see what I might think of as 'my future' played out on screen. I could go on about all of the characters, but man, Ari Gold really does steal the show sometimes. He's better than Dr. Cox and House combined when it comes to being a loveable hard@ss, and unlike them, he's closer to my own personality, which has kind of had me obsessed with the notion of 'being Ari Gold' XD
  4. When two characters won't stop yelling each-other's names. It literally infuriates me - NO real people call each-other's names back and forth like that, and why do they get to doing it SO many times at parts? It's rather unbelievable. My first experience with that was in .hack//Legend of the Twilight. However, the worst case was in Kurau: Phantom Memory wherein about 4 consecutive episodes consisted mostly of two characters calling each other's names, and I eventually dropped the whole show. It was very exacerbated by the fact that one of them was named 'kurisumasu.' "Kurau!" "Kurisumasu!"
  5. I recently played Uncharted: Drake's Fortune [URL="http://fuzakenna.com/2009/06/22/uncharted-drakes-fortune-review-digging-for-fun-and-striking-gold/"](you can read my review of it here[/URL]) which is easily one of my new alltime favorites, and in fact the first game I've EVER beaten to 100% completion. What really made the game for me was the large-scale shoot-outs where you really needed to strategize, conserve ammo, and figure out exactly what you were going to do in what order, especially on Crushing difficulty. I would love to continue playing, which is why I'm glad the second game is coming soon and will feature multiplayer :D Besides that, I played about halfway through Infamous, which is pretty okay, and have just started on Xenogears, which shows promise already.
  6. [quote name='Jabberwocky'][FONT="Palatino Linotype"]Human lust. We as humans need sex to further advance our race. Sex is normal. [/FONT][/QUOTE] For these exact reasons, I don't get why you say cheating is wrong, especially if you understand this. I just don't get it, other than for religious reasons, but if it's for religious reasons than cheating is wrong [I]for you[/I], and not flat-out.
  7. I was going to read the light novel Ballad of a Shinigami (the anime for which inspired the RP Shinigami Dance which has survived very well beyond me, lol.) I only read a few pages and already found myself unable to get into it. The translation is really boring and stiff, and it just doesn't seem fun to read at all. It already has to go back to the library, so I doubt I'll finish it. I've been doing my usual business of re-reading some of my favorite light novels and compilations (i.e. Boogiepop and Faust) with the hope of finally getting some blog posts made on the series, and volume 2 of Faust is apparently out now, which means I need it immediately. I infinitely recommend Faust to everyone, by the way. It's truly a must-read compilation.
  8. I'm listening to the [B][I]Le Portrait de Petit Cossette[/I][/B] OST right now. I have a headache, and for some reason Yuki Kajiura music always helps me when I have a headache. This is far from my favorite work by her, but there are some excellent tracks.
  9. Felt like taking some pics of me with my "magic box" that m grandma gave me full of money for my graduation, which was about a week ago :D As you can see, I've been playing around with image effects lately, lol [IMG]http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/MetalSonic700/MyPicture-1-2.jpg[/IMG] The Magic Box [IMG]http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/MetalSonic700/MyPicture-1-1.jpg[/IMG] Quite a bit of bread [IMG]http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/MetalSonic700/MyPicture-1.jpg[/IMG] Close it discretly
  10. I don't want to make a controversial statement, which I'm sure this will look like to some, but I think the 'stupidity' of cheating starts with the 'stupidity' of marriage. Personally, I don't really care for the idea of a singular relationship and the set of rules coming with it, I'd rather just maintain an independent existence that interacts with other people than try to basically combine lives with someone, because no matter how I look at it, that just doesn't work for me, nor most people, which is why so many people end up in bad relationships. I think that rather than one socially acceptable method of coupling, we should choose whatever kind of relationship lifestyle works for ourselves. But of course, marriage is something so traditional and ingrained into our beings and beliefs that it's hard to think this way. I admit that we don't live in a world where my ideal romance could easily exist, much less be socially acceptable enough that a politician could live that way.
  11. I just bought a whole ton of DVDs with money I got from my graduation, most of which are 90s OVAs and many of which are old Akiyuki Shinbo works. I also ordered all of Baccano which I will be forcing my parents to watch as soon as it comes in :D I most recently watched the 2-episode 1987 OVA Twilight Q which had an episode directed by the guy who did Ocean Waves which was decent, and an episode done by Mamoru Oshii, which was excellent, chalking up to another 'reason I barely don't hate Mamoru Oshii.' I also watched the first episode of Gun Frontier on ANN which was surprisingly fun, and am going to watch Space Symphony Maetel soon, mostly because Kikuko Inoue is in it as Emeraldas and she's coming to Otakon so I want to brush up on her roles, but it will also be a way to finally break into the Leijiverse.
  12. I'm looking forward to almost everything that's airing this coming season, many for reasons already stated, but no one has mentioned the new[B] Space Adventure Cobra[/B] anime yet! It's one of my favorite old school anime, having been done by The Almighty [B]Osamu Dezaki[/B], and Madhouse who is doing the new one as well. It's sure to be a hell of a time!
  13. Jesus, this place must be really dead if no one's playing 55 Fiction :O [COLOR="DarkRed"][CENTER][B]No One Lives Forever[/B][/CENTER] He yanked his head right off his shoulders, like the pumpkin king himself, and the head in his hands grinned wildly, bemused, no doubt, at the shock that must have been written all over my face, and it spoke: "Danny boy, you worry too much! Just accept it, and enjoy yourself! No one lives forever!"[/COLOR]
  14. Last year I rickrolled upwards of 20 people. This year I will do what I can.
  15. As OB probably knows, I swear constantly both off and online. I'd say that people who 'don't like' or 'discourage' swear words piss me off more than almost any other kind of people. The depression hasn't really impacted my speech habits because if I cussed any more, there wouldn't be any regular words left, lol.
  16. [quote name='Rurouni922']Currently, I've been watching [b]Gunslinger Girl[/b] for the first time. I always thought it looked interesting, but some of my friends convinced me to actually watch the first episode a few days ago, saying how good it was, and so far I have to agree. I just finished episode eight, which is when they tell Angelica's story. Other then that, has anyone watched the second season? And is it as good as the first?[/QUOTE] The second season is unfortunately the worst thing in the history of time. I personally am a huge Gunslinger Girl fan, especially of the manga, and thought the first season was a perfect adaption of the first 2 graphic novels. Unfortunately the second season is 100% different and horrible. It's done by a different studio with new character designs and voice actors and none of the emotion from the first series is there. Pretty much every Gunslinger Girl fan blasted the show and dropped it. I dropped it in under 5 minutes it was so horrible. This is a real shame because the manga really picks up whre the first seaosn left off. I highly suggest reading the manga.
  17. It would definitely help if you told us some of what you've already read, since we don't know if we're just telling you stuff you already know. As for finding yaoi, uh... I'm no expert but here's a link to all of the yaoi manga rated 8 or above on MyAnimeList: [url]http://myanimelist.net/manga.php?q=&type=0&score=8&status=0&tag=&sm=0&sd=0&sy=0&em=0&ed=0&ey=0&c[]=a&c[]=b&c[]=c&gx=0&genre[]=33[/url]
  18. I'd go with Xam'd and ef since they are considerably better than anything else on that list, not that any of the others are bad. lol @damekko doubutsu
  19. Punk Daddy, I can tell you're quite experienced. 3 DVDs or less - do you care about the actual series length? Gunslinger Girl and Genshiken were both released on 3 DVDs (and re-released in smaller box-form) and either is buyable for under 30 bucks. Both are the utmost of excellent series - take it from a fellow vet ; )
  20. [quote name='Japan_86'].hack//SIGN forum - I remember Shy posting an episode synopsis every week for each episode of .hack//SIGN as it was being shown and each thread would be flooded with posts. I liked how everyone seemed to be in a tighter knit back then in the anime forum. I hope to gain more memories with the new Full Metal Alchemist forum as well as the same kind of atmosphere. .[/QUOTE] haha, this was my first real board on OB that I participated in. I remember being a member of the 'we hate B.T.' club XD.
  21. When I was 8-10 I wanted to design video games. For some reason, I had it in my head that if I sold a game idea to Nintendo they would give me exactly 2 million dollars. I created a game that was a unique twist on Zelda which I plotted out in the form of a strategy guide, drew maps for, and drew every enemy for. Good times.
  22. I don't remember this song from Higurashi at all... unless it was like the season 2 ending, which I may have skipped out of the excitement of finishing the show. I'd say it's pretty likely since it sounds like she says 'naku koro ni' in the song's chorus. I don't know the title, but I suggest watching Higurashi for yourself since it's an awesome show. The song's instrumental sounds a lot like something Yuki Kajiura, like the .hack//sign soundtrack.
  23. [quote name='botar15']I don't understand why you guys are missing the worst one of all time! It was Jungle De Ikou! It was about a chick with ungodly sized boobs that got bigger when she jumped and Jiggled them around in some retarded dance. It had no nude scenes, but was still horrible. It made me want to hate the creator so much. Dont get me wrong, I love big boobs, but not when an anime is solely based around them, wile trying not to seem like there basing the anime on those two Godzilla nokers! It's actually a disappointment to anime! Oh, and Evangelion is a good anime, sad, yet good. Sorry for the lack of retaliation, I know what ever I say will be shot down immediately, so why try. And with that, i'm going to watch more Evangelion.[/QUOTE] hahahaha, yes Jungle de Ikou was pretty bad, but I found it less outright terrible and more campy WTF. I mean, I wasn't really sure how to react. And it was dubbed when I saw it too XD. 90s had the budget for anything =_=.
  24. I moved on to newer, shinier forums : p
  25. I've been here for 7 years, though I guess I took the last yer off lol. I've been banned upwards of 5 times I think, and otherwise just chased out, haha. Those were 'the days' lol. Had many good times here with Premonition and all the people who were extremely kind to me in 2007 (Rachmaninoff, Indifference, SunfallE etc.). I remember way back when Dragon_Warrior was still pumping out stuff every other day and I wanted to be just like him... ah good stuff. There's been awkward times as well among others. OB saw me go through my whole early teen years and all the hormonal crap that came along with that, hahaha. The most fun I've ever had on OB had to be doing The Panopticoon, though. All my favorite OB members were there and I still consider the whole thing my most awesome project to date. It was huge, after all.
