I am sure that I will be, a bunch of my friends still need to see it so I will probably be watching it with them around the same time I would assume. Yeah, I have seen that some camrip versions are out already, will probably be awhile before anything of good quality comes around. Yeah, it really was good, it sucks that there was no theater in your area that was showing it.
Yeah, my backlog has been getting bigger as well, I have had so much work to do for college, although I will be done for winter break soon so I will probably be using that time to work and catch up on anime. Yeah, I waste too much time rewatching stuff I feel, I should actually get around to watching new series I think. Laptops are pretty nice, I have only ever had a laptop, I need to get a desktop so I can play some more games on it that I can't play on my laptop. What kind of a laptop did you get?
I am sure that you will be able to keep it up till then, and I mean at least if you know a lot of work is coming in for your team there is no way your job is in any danger (well, unless you do something stupid that is ).
Well I said earlier in this message how my backlog is looking, which is longer and longer . As for college life, my social life is going really good, my anime club is finished for the semester but it was really fun and I feel like it went really well. I am going to try to change some things up for it next semester, I feel like the club members are a little too distant from each other so I am going to try and change that if I can so it is a little more friendly of a environment.
My grades are kind of eh this semester, I choose a bad semester to be unmotivated in my school work since all my classes are starting to get harder now. Have to try harder next semester in order to make up for the drop my GPA is most probably going to be taking.
Roger that, I hope you're still interested by then. I see some camrips are already out... but I'm going to hold out for a much better version months later rather than submit to watching a terrible quality version of a great movie. On the big screen in a theater is still the best option though (not to mention also legal), and for that I admit I am quite envious of all of you who were able to have that experience.
Hmm. I'm doing... not so well regarding my anime and manga backlogs which have been piling up on me recently. Though my recent level of activity in that area has really dropped considerably (see: my MAL history), I'd like to say I have no intention of giving up the fight any time soon! I just need to find that sweet spot in my schedule for all the stuff I (still) enjoy... at least I'm able to watch one episode during lunch break on some days, and I really should make the most of my weekends too. Two months of saving up money from work has allowed me to buy my first laptop (I've been a desktop fanboy ever since I grew to like computers) which should also allow me to watch anime/read manga when out of town.
This then leads me to office life: December is pretty manageable so far, but January is when a large amount of work is expected to come in for my team. I'm a bit envious of my other teammates who are now using up their vacation leaves in time for the December holidays. I don't have paid leaves yet since I'm still a probationary employee, but that should change in mid-January when after 6 months of employment I finally become a regular employee; assuming I can keep it up until then, of course.
Enough about me for now, how about you? How's your anime backlog and college life going?
It most certainly will be, once you get a chance to see it you better come and discuss with me in the future! Yeah, now that quite a good amount of people have seen the movie avoiding the spoilers will probably be even more difficult, I personally read the spoilers myself before seeing the movie, couldn't help myself . As I said though, I am sure that you will enjoy this movie very much, it was just too good for you not to!
Anyhow how have you been anyhow? Hows the office life been treating you?
Well, I'm glad to know you enjoyed it - it gives me hope that my several month long wait will be rewarded when I finally get to watch it. Thankfully I haven't encountered any spoilers yet so far, though now that the movies have already shown in many locations worldwide, it's going to be a bigger challenge to avoid them all.
Hmm really? For some reason I am not that surprised actually. It sounds weird but I had a feeling that the anime would get a sub par treatment. I can usually get over occasional bad art and CG usage (I mean I got through all of Attack on Titan) so that shouldn't be too much of a problem to me. Yeah I wouldn't expect them to really change any of the characters too much but I am glad to get confirmation that they are all the same.
Ha, must be someone else that I know on here then, hard to keep track on everyone sometimes. Yeah, it will be a good movie but not good enough to go to another country to try and see it . Yeah, It will eventually get posted online for everyone to see I am sure but that is probably at least a year away from now. There is a lot of supposed spoilers already floating around but I mean this early on its hard to tell if any of them are true or they are all just troll spoilers based upon what has been show in all of the previews so far.
Yeah, we are a small group, only around 15-20 people and we don't get that much of a budget but its not like I really need a big budget anyway. We are a part of the Gaming Society we have on campus so that helps us get more people for sure. Yeah that probably would be interesting but not exactly what you want.
Yeah, its nice to find someone you can talk to about your interests at work for sure. It doesn't really shock me that most of the people aren't really that big into anime, we are kind of a small niche culture I would say.
They are all interesting series, although Pupa still hasn't aired yet and I haven't heard anything else about it .
On Unbreakable Machine-Doll: as a fellow fan of the manga, I'd say I'm not that impressed so far due to a few kinks (subpar art at times and more frequent use of CG than I'd like to see), but I still find it enjoyable overall. The characters are also what I expect them to be, so go for it if you haven't yet to see Raishin and the girls in action.
As for my location, I'm afraid you might have confused me with someone else since I'm not living in Canada, but in Southeast Asia. The only country in this region that is showing the movie is Singapore, but I am not living in Singapore either. This is why I'm not as excited about the movie as I would normally be, and now I would have to be extra careful not to spoil myself now that it has begun showing in parts of the world.
I'm a little envious that you have an anime club in college, since I doubt one would have been approved as an officially sanctioned organization in mine back when I was still there. The closest thing there was a Japan Studies org, but it was not exactly what I was looking for.
On the other hand, I'm happy there is at least one guy in my team in the office who is pretty updated with the kinds of anime I watch, so I now have someone to talk to about those. Most of the other people there who know anime only know the usual long-running action series that I avoid (apart from a few of my fellow former trainees who I shared some anime with).
Thanks for the small list of titles - I think I'll pick up Nagi no Asukara, look up some more info on Galilei Donna and keep an eye on Pupa.
Yeah, about four months in fact . Well I am sure that was kind of to be expected since you have to put more effort into work and it takes up a lot of time. People usually say that programming jobs are tiring due to the long hours that you usually have to work. I haven't been watching much anime either, I have had classwork and club work to do so I haven't had much free time and even if I do I usually end up using it to do something with my friends, not sitting by myself watching anime.
I need to give Unbreakable Machine-Doll a try, I have read the manga as well and I found it to be pretty entertaining. I wasn't really a fan of Valvrave, it might have to do with the fact that I am just not really that big of a fan of Mecha's but it seemed dull to me. I feel the same way about most of them right now, I have tried the first episode of a bunch but none of them have really struck me as you should keep watching this material. You live in Canada don't you? or am I thinking of someone else? I already got my tickets for the airing of it since I live in the U.S. and they are doing a pretty big amount of screening for it here. Well I will tell you at least if its good or turns out to be a disappointment from my perspective if that helps at all (probably not but its the thought that counts xD).
I have been enjoying college for the most part, a couple of my classes have been doing pretty bad but besides those everything else is going pretty damn good actually. I have been enjoying running the anime club this year on my campus as well as just hanging with people so I can't complain.
Umm if I had to suggest a couple things from this season, Galilei Donna has got my interests at least somewhat during the first episode although it was a little scattered in what was going on. Nagi No Asukara is another one that keep my interest and finally Pupa is something I actually really want to see but it hasn't started airing yet for whatever reason so I don't know what is going on with that.
Hey, it really has been a long while since we last talked. On the work side of things, I think I may be enjoying things a bit too well... or may have adjusted a bit too much... I haven't been watching as much anime, reading as much manga or playing as much games as I used to back then; even though I'd still love to do so if given the chance. Weekdays seem to be more tiring than usual for me so I usually end up failing to use my free time after work for the good stuff at home.
Compared to my picks last season (which I took a while to finish after landing the job), I only have a couple of sure picks: Unbreakable Machine-Doll (because I'm already a fan of the novels' manga version) and Valvrave the Liberator 2nd cour ("Irritainment", but a sequel is a sequel ). I don't find a lot of the new titles on offer that appealing, but it can still change. Under normal circumstances, I'd be VERY excited for the third Madoka Movie. But the fact that the first two movies did not air in my country means I can fully expect the third not to show either, so I've resigned myself to waiting for about a year again until I can finally enjoy the new addition to the saga.
How about you? Enjoying college lately? What about picks for the current season? I might just pick up more titles from you.
