Copper for the internet... yeah, that's pretty bad, lol. I hope that your next government goes with fibre networks.
And yeah, seems to be a lot of earthquakes lately. I hope that settles down. I look forward to reading more of your take on the current anime season whenever you get a chance to watch more of what you're following.
And if it seems like I'm being quiet about anime the last few days, the Kyushu earthquakes affecting the airings of the titles I chose to continue with happened. The fact they got hit twice is chilling. Apparently one also happened in Ecuador today - makes me feel fortunate I live in a place natural disasters don't happen in for the greater part.
We're headed for an early election in Australia in the very near future. And those are rare. Malcolm Turnbull has continued to earn the wrath of increasingly more disgruntled Australians for the internet plan from hell, for screwing with health funding, for trying to end superannuation, some international relations that have degraded. Abbott was responsible for a lot more but amusingly he's trying to derail Turnbull in revenge for being ousted by him.
In 2013, it looked like Labor were on the verge of political irrelevance after being a minority government in their second term. Yet the Liberals, after losing the seemingly unlosable election of 2010, may have trumped that with how they have gone from the one the middle class wanted to the ones that people are disgusted with. That usually takes more than one term. But Labor are looking set to be back in charge. I'm hoping they will change the internet plans to the original fibre networks they proposed years ago. The Liberals refuse to replace it and insist we will be staying on copper...COPPER....
Justin Trudeau is smart and charismatic. His father, Pierre, is probably Canada's smartest and most influential Prime Minister ever. It's definitely good to have effective and respected leadership on the world stage right now. It's particularly good to have leadership that gets computers and new technologies.
Apparently your current Prime Minister, Trudeau, is really impressing people internationally and most recently with his knowledge on quantum computers. Sounds like you might have a rare case of a worthy leader.
Again, thanks for that chat a couple of days ago. I needed it at the time.
I don't have issues with people overall liking those final episodes. You did, Kanon did, thundrakkon did. But the three of you were still able to admit there were flaws within them and that things could have been done better. Some people are just living in denial and using the fact both the director and the author were figuring out ways to do conclusions at the time to justify the issues found within the final episodes.
As I've said countless times (but hey, those dominating the thread never bother to listen), the fact things are different isn't my issue. The fact the director threw the character development/meaning of several characters out the window and re-did things in the hope of making it more like a thriller - that is what irks me. Erased's strength has always been its characters and the human aspects of those involved. The thriller aspect has been its biggest weakness - because heck, we always knew who the villain was. Removing the why altogether, as we discussed the other day, is a big deal. Some other people I've spoken to and shown the manga to - they understood. One of the biggest complaints about how things turned out is that Yashiro was a weak villain, particularly in the final episodes. Well...Chapter 31 and 32 say otherwise...but the residents of Mount Pious are out to prevent people from being able to find out. Good thing PMs exist.
But meh. I've moved on. I've got Orange and ReLIFE in July to look forward to. Kana Hanazawa as Naho in Orange....that pairing is going to a dream come true.
