Didn't expect a message from you so sudden considering you've been all over the place with Oreimo, back to school etc. Anyway...none the less.
There's not much to say regarding Oreimo, but there are some things that I wish to say, but can't think of anything at the moment. I'll write to you when it comes to me.
Well the Xbone is having Kingdom Hearts 3 and FFXV coming to the system, which I find weird since Sony's gaming consoles have been a stable for JRPGs. And also the fact that Japan mock the Xbone with a passion, to say the least. Tales of Destiny is a really great game, and worth playing if you have a PS2. If you still want to play Tales series games, when I come up to see you next year, I'll bring my PS3-4 and we'll both play. Plus, I'll share my experiences of JRPG's in person. Sound good?
I'll get a Steam account after I upgrade my computer because right now it's being used as a storage for my anime BDs. I still have this current gen games to complete and play. I'm 60% done, but I'm confident I can finish them from around the time the PS4 comes out. MS, well, they lost my trust. The reason why they took the DRMs, mandatory connect, 1 hour check in systems because to them it was profitable, fan feedback had nothing to do with it. Nobody won't even buy the system if they hadn't done that. At the end of the time, to me, they did it for themselves just to get money, and not for the fans. Quite the EA mentality they've got there.
I'm looking forward to this fall anime. Summer is okay, but I have hopes that Fall can make up for its shortcomings. Will update my fall list later.
Sure, look forward to our discussion on this upcoming con in the months to come. Let's get on Skype when it happens. I like sports, but I just don't like watching them. I've been go at it, but watching seems sort of brain dead to me. Sure I'd like to show off my fighting game skills to you and your friends at an anime convention or whatever, my last anime convention I went to was a couple of years ago, sorry that was an typo. I remember, but the painful memories are related to someone from my past. That's all.
I'm like that as well. Most people see me as nice, but I don't really believe so. I help people, but I don't really understand my own concept of "kindness". People say I'm easy to take advantage of, but I'm not really sure how I feel about that. I express emotion if it's "necessary" to. If something is funny, I laugh. If something angers me, I get mad. For smiling, it's a tough concept because my cheek muscles are oddly distorted to the point where I make a grin for no reason even if I'm not thinking of anything funny. My relations with my family isn't great, but I do love them regardless if I like it or not. I like speaking to my uncles, more than I do my mother and my father. My relationship with my mother is complicated, to say the least.
I'll check out the LN section for that info. Been to busy with other series to notice.
Well I think people miss those subtle changes due to the fact of how she perceived herself. Ie. Sister who's a bitchy obnoxious tsundere etc. There was more to her character as time goes on. Remember, it usually takes awhile for character development to be consistence in any form of medium. To suddenly change it drastically will sort of killed the pacing of the natural flow of the story, and Fushimi-sensei did a good job of not doing that. He kept Kirino's pacing while making her become the person she becomes from the beginning to its end. I like Kirino's character. Tsundere I don't mind, to name a few, and she's very likeable as a character despite the archtype that's accustomed to her personality and traits, and what seems to tick off alot of anime fans.
Well I was planning to finally reply to the big message last night, but the internet in my dorm room isn't working right now so I had to wait till today to find some wifi, anyway here it is!
I won't really touch upon the ending of Oreimo anymore, I feel like we discussed it enough in our little skype session, unless of course you actually want to keep talking about it then by all means prove me otherwise .
See, that is the main issue there, I don't have a PS3. I got the new consoles back when they were pretty young and both actually got JRPG localizations, but as we know now xbox has completely left the JRPG market and sony has a monopoly on it. I would love to try the tales games, I have thought about going back and trying out the two popular ones on the PS2 since that is a console I actually have. Well I am trying to be optimistic about the new games I guess, recently I have felt FF games have been very weak so I am hoping this new style will help rekindle the series. JRP's are like playing a anime except with less fan service.
If you are ever going to start playing computer games, get Steam. The games on there are the cheapest and they always have absurd sales like 80% off games, some of which are pretty new games. I will get a PS4 eventually as well, mainly for the JRPG reason listed above, but I am going to wait awhile, I have enough games to play on the current gen as is and the new benefits from the next gen aren't worth it right away. I am not really mad at MS, they has some different ideas, the whole download/share game idea wasn't bad its just they added a bunch of other stupid policies that mad no sense like the 1 hour check in, etc.
The fall has a lot of series that could be really good, or could all be really shit so its almost a knuckleball kind of season.
Yeah, I was planning on talking to you about it more in detail as we get closer to the time since there isn't much I can really play this far ahead. Lol its whatever, you a big fan of any sport or not really? Well we will have to try and change that! They have a game room there so you will have to go and show off your awesome Persona fighting skills . Also i think its contradicting to say you don't remember your last con but it brings back painful memories .
People say I am a nice guy but I don't really see myself as one, i like to think that I am just a average person who likes to be helpful if I can. I have never really understood what it means to be a "nice" guy anyway, its more just like nice means you are good to have around, which isn't a bad thing but that wording "nice guy" has always bugged me. Yeah, my mom tells me to smile more often, I usually only smile when I am laughing it seems, face must have got stuck this way like my parents always said it would . I kind of think that is how family is, they are the people you probably care for the most yet at the same time they are the people you can stand the least.
I forget at this time, but I believe their was a LN forum on this site and a couple months ago I thought I saw them talking about the last volume, hell it might already be out by now. I wonder if the HenNeko LN are done as well, I will have to check up on that as well, so behind in my LN knowledge.
Your view on Kirino seem pretty close to how I see it. I think they allowed her to develop fine, but the problem was that all the development were really subtle and unless you really watched carefully you are probably going to miss most of the subtle ones which help make her changes seem more realistic.
Thanks for the news, Soverence. I just got home from work and it's the best thing I've read all day. I really like their new illustrations (Well all their illustrations are cute and amazing!), and can't wait to see how Colorful will sound like.
I'm so psyched for the 3rd movie, thanks to this. Going to check the ticket sites new week to see if there are any tickets being sold in advanced. Don't want to miss this.
Oh yes, I still need to reply to you from the last VM. Give me a day, I hate new work schedule. Makes it so that I can't be on the forum as much.
Alright I'm all good to go! It's only a matter a time before the airing. It's so close that my chest is tightening and my anxiety won't go down. I think I'll go buy some snacks or play on the PS3 for a bit to help calm my nerves.
