    Uggh, been pretty exhausted with my training session to be a tutor this week Dann, also had to take care of quite a few forms/applications so I'll see what I can do about getting a response tomorrow afternoon/evening. Hold off on any new responses, and instead just edit your older post below me if anything important comes out in the mean time.

    Edit: Good lord, they want me to do MORE training sessions on top of all this last minute scrambling on my part to get the necessary documents in time. I'll have to push this to Thursday or so Dann

    Thanks, between you and me I'm hoping some job offers come through over others but we'll see, at least I got one position secured even if it is only a part-time gig for one year. If I have some time next Friday I can go over those with you and see where you might be able to improve it, though I'm only just starting to consciously try to shorten my cover letters, but I'll do what I can if you need it

    Still some things to wrap up (like where the heck Eizan is, are Soma and Kuga going to have a match or not, what will this meeting with Eiishi Tsukasa result in) even before we jump into that interesting tangle. Erina's been due for some serious development for awhile though, so looking forward to talking more about it with you, along with next week's chapter

    No it's fine. I'm pretty swamped myself right now, I'm getting processed for a tutoring position while also applying for various other posts and attending other information sessions. It's going to be a pretty busy for me next week so take your time.

    Please do, as you said the latest developments from this chapter are very interesting.

    I think I'm losing track of things, was this conversation regarding cellphones about the LOGH remake? Cause I can't find my post that you responded to regarding it but I'll try to improvise. I suppose that's true though LOGH could justify that somewhat given they were from the early 90's, and that they use a lot of antiquated/retroactive technology. Still one hopes they figure out how to take that into consideration in said remake. But yeah, other series were a bit off putting, at least Sunrise seemed to slowly begin adapting that idea going back to 00, though UC could justify it somewhat given Minovsky particles. Just have to see how Iron-Blooded Orphans handles it.

    Mostly likely, I mean the second season did only end this year. We'll look to see if anything new for Build or in general comes out from Sunrise next year.

    Damn straight. It DOES seem like they're moving closer to releasing the other episodes though, they're finally reairing that premiere for Season 2 of SW:Rebels so we'll see. Nick hasn't been much better as well, the Kung Fu Panda series has completely disappeared, while Ninja Turtles seems to be in hiatus. I can only pray KFP finishes its third season once the third movie comes out.

    Hah, don't remind me, honestly they need to get their heads out of their butts and just license this mess to someone who knows what they're doing like Funimation. I for one can do without Seed but I understand the frustration with the delays regarding the other series/franchises. We'll just have to hope for the best, but if they're going to charge that much they should have done some kind of bundle package with all the episodes if only to get the price down based on bulk purchase.

    Edit: Eh, I haven't seen anyone dispute whether the Code Geass Uncut ending was legit, so I'll just take it for granted, I think it always made sense just based on that whole C.C raising her voice for someone to hear, but people will continue to interpret the ending how they please. For me, I'm satisfied seeing my view vindicated regardless of it counting or not after being cut.

    Moving the RWBY Stuff here. They've released the Jap Dub online, saw it, loved it, thought the VA's matched well. I wonder how much RT licensed that for? Ah well, should do great in Japan regardless

    Sounds like a nice scene, and HAH to the fish for Blake Hmm regarding Weiss, the Schnee Company just concluded a development project with the Atlas military for the Paladins so I can't imagine they're doing that badly regardless of the Dust robberies by Torchwick and the White Fang. Given Winter is there and how... questionable their attitudes have been hinted as, the cutting Weiss off thing would fit better. Good on Pyrrha, and Jaune wanted to join them for food I take it? If so, he sure knows how to mooch

    Yeah, they leaked that scene on youtube, was a bit grainy but it looked cool. Most of the concept art for that scene was also available so I have the gist for the arena/rules and the opponents regardless. Still, not surprised by how recent they completed that clip given that they only started production around the beginning of July.

    Well, more open world was the sense I got when they presented this whole Andromeda concept in the first place, but we'll see. It wouldn't be THAT big a departure I don't think either, maybe a more modern and updated take on Mass Effect 1 will suffice where we can actually visit and explore uninhabited worlds. Cool cool, and yeah Emhyr isn't the nicest guy but he's probably the best ruler for the world out there currently. I personally never was all that fond of Ashley but at least she had more life/spunk then Kaiden. I don't know, I didn't think you were necessarily ever INSANE in Dragon Age Inquisition, maybe a selfish-greedy, ambitious prick but there was a core reasoning behind some of the more paranoid decisions. All I'm saying is that Mass Effect can do a lot worse in revamping its morality system than taking a page out of the Witcher or how DA has evolved, it actually felt like they were getting a bit closer to balancing it out in 3 actually.

    I thought you would. While Inside Out was a nice change of pace, I can't wait for the Frozen 2 movie from Pixar now Yeah, probably shouldn't expect too much until the prove otherwise. Ah good to hear, and expected because as you say the PS systems seem to sell the most regarding the Tales series (and most JRPG's I've come to believe). Hopefully it works out and vindicates that faith both ways for Sony and Square when FFXV and FFVII-Remake do come out. Definitely agree, the worst thing that can happen is to be forgotten, casual fans lose interest while the hardcore lose faith, so hopefully only newer and better things are on the horizon and they've scheduled their releases accordingly.

    True, I certainly don't mind though I guess I'm still ambivalent given they canceled out all my favorite Star Wars spin-off books as non-canon <_< Guess, so, hope it works out for Boba but for now let's just see what this movie brings us instead. God yes, they'll be hard pressed to match characters like Thrawn in any setting, much less one that's had DECADES to grow beyond the original trilogy. We'll see what happens I guess.

    No doubt, P4 didn't get an adaptation for a LONG time and I don't expect anything less from P5, and you're right that it'll only happen provided P5 manages to match the popularity to justify it given all the spin-offs they keep making for P4

    Edit: Moving your TOR comment here, good on Bioware for realizing that's where the real, if any appeal for the game lies now. And yeah, my damn laptop probably could never handle it, just have to suffice on youtube videos until I can afford to finally buy a decent gaming PC

    Understandable, my main problem is that I'm completely dependent on the wikia for information exclusive to Japan like the Light novel stories and what have you. And anyway most of the new characters the last actually didn't do much so don't worry about it. I'll let you know if anything interesting happens in Central Fiction Until more news pops up though let's move on.

    This last month was good in terms of building up the operation, getting some respite for character redevelopment and helping to confirm their goals/mindset. Not much more to add then that. You're likely right, probably a lab too in order to develop his dosage of Titan serum, which he seemed to do out of local resources since he came to the Walls with nothing on him. I certainly would think so, I can't see anyway Grisha could justify giving Eren the power versus simply doing it himself, it's way too unpredictable and risky otherwise if he couldn't guarantee Eren could somehow access it, which Eren HAS done on a few occasions, disproving Reiss' accusations on that level at least. Anyway, I hope that is the case with Historia, I think she really could be a good queen if she gets to chance to assert herself but we'll have to see about that later. It'd be a convoluted kind of science if any is given Dann, like how Mahouka explains the physics of magic etc. Anyway, I'm also curious on some other characters, like what happened to Ymir etc since it doesn't look like Reiner, Bert, or Ape man have gone further then Wall Maria. All questions I suppose we'll get answers to starting next month hopefully. I don't know if I agree with that, I feel like the only way to make progress is if we finally go beyond the territories of the Wall and take the offensive to the Shifters or something, help us further understand what exactly is going on etc. No shame if you forgot, I ended up re-watching a bit of the series this year once the dubs finished airing on Toonami, still good we wrapped up that loose end with Keith finally Well we really HAVEN'T seen them work together beyond Bert and Reiner, that temporary alliance with Ymir almost screwed them over for example, so we'll see, the Survey Corp is going to need every advantage to take Reiner, Bert, and Ape-man on.

    Okay, now that you're done with Mahouka I can understand why Build Fighters Try next, I'm actually working on that myself. Finishing Yamato 2199 I approve. But for the love of god PLEASE don't watch the Macross Frontier series, though that's mostly the RankaxAlto fan in me screaming, if you have to then save yourself some time by just watching the movie version instead Arslan I think you can wait on, it's not even finished yet (plus I'm a bit worried about pacing so you might want to hold off until I can give you an all clear they managed to avoid some abrupt anime only ending) Hmm, really? I found a couple of torrents for Utawarerumono on my first google search. Well, anyway you can see the series, both subbed and dubbed, on Kissanime. I think Kissanime even lets you download the episodes if you signup with them (if you don't want to give away your e-mail then just use 10minutemail.com, it sets up a temporary proxy e-mail that is deleted after 10 minutes)

    Yeah, just got it last night. Looks great. Thanks again!

    Also, going to be working on the posts today. Hopefully I get everything done by tonight this time.

    Well, the last chapter was interesting, great to see how everyone came together, made it more realistic that they were able to overcome the situation. I do wonder if this is going to count as a defeat though since Soma relied on so many other prominent figures, enough that they could also potentially claim a shokugeki against Kuga if he's inclined to even offer it. At the same time there's still one day left, who knows what reverses of fortune could take place, so now that it's winding down let's see how it all ends. Still curious what Eizan is doing.

    Speaking of him it was great to see him fully introduced last week. Very cool the Sugita's the VA after his roles as for Ragna from BB or Kyon from Haruhi. I was worried he was channeling too much Ragna in the beginning but he managed to de-age his voice back to Kyon and thus sound like a High schooler splendidly this last episode. I'm curious/worried though on if they'll even be able to get through the preliminaries with only 6 episodes left, and one of them being devoted to Akira's introduction etc.

    Edit: Not much to add for this weeks episode, other then Akira and Jun's VA were spot on and it was a bit of a shame they cut the table tennis scene

    Yes, the visual aspect was always appreciated on my part, getting to see everything in action, and I suppose I should be grateful they adapted Madan to begin with. Anyway if they do get a sequel I imagine we'll cover those issues a little bit more, if only in more supplementary material like the Madan-chu shorts. I give it a little more time before I stop checking, about 3 years, when the series still has material that can be further adapted anyway. it's not like with say Utawarerumono which got its sequel only after they announced a new game was also being released for the series this year as well. So incorporating the new information now that you've finished Mahouka, all I will say is that further world-building, the politics of the family, the character expansion or Tatsuya and Miyuki by exploring their backstory all occur in the later novels and would have addressed at least some of those issues you had, so I imagine you might enjoy the second season a tad bit more. AND they'll be more Mayumi hints... though the majority would probably need a third season to cover as well As for the side character's, it really depends, some of them don't shine until the later portions of the series as well but they all have their own interesting backstory while helping to keep the mood a little lighter. Take that whole tension with Erika and Mari I keep mentioning, did you finally pick up on that? But another big reason so many of them are featured is based on how their interactions influence and affect Tatsuya, helping him grow a little out of his shell. Eh, I don't quite agree, as much as Mahouka bogs us down in the details DTB just kind of felt like it hand-waved a lot of the mechanics/science involved. But as I said the really in depth character exploration won't occur It's mostly the paranoid nature and cutthroat world of espionage, I felt a lot of those same vibes in Ghost but that's understandable given the extreme pressures of that kind of world, it's not something I would ascribe as xenophobic since I don't think we can apply that to the general population, Japan is actually fairly neutral on the world stage in Mahouka but their advanced magic users makes them targeted by the bigger super powers.

    Edit: Oh, quick answers to your more recent post. Regarding the Mahouka CG dancing thing I notice more and more anime companies doing that whenever they depict large crowds moving, like soliders during a big battle, so it's probably some kind of cost saving maneuver.

    Yeah, Mahouka is in a state of flux now as of the latest volume, just have to see how things develop but I'm still planting my flag on the MayumixTatsuya ship

    Okay, much appreciated then. It's cool, I already have their signature on my other poster, and provided they come to New York I should be able to get their signature then anyway.
