    Well then, it's a good thing I'm using Masterpiece subs for this. :3

    That might be it, one of his Cinemassacre Monster Madness videos, I take it? Jaws 3D was just...so bad though. It went right past what's allowed to exist.

    Yeah, it was a very good role, rather liked the character. Considering how well she does, it's not a big surprise I temporarily even forgot it was her.

    With only 4 more and one being one of my favourites, it sounds like a good idea. You can then rest assured knowing that Chuunibyou is just starting for KyoAni. Loving that show so far. :3

    If it's a review for fun, then there are the ones I enjoy as well, but I will never let a review fully sway my decision into what I will and will not like. Guess I won't really be doing much criticizing as opposed to trying to make funnies.

    Yeah, I hope they can build it back up together. To be fair, it does have to live up to the enjoyable first two seasons, but even if this is a new telling altogether, it just feels so...off. At the very least, I hope he stops telling me to enjoy it at the beginning and end of every episode.

    Fair enough, I don't exactly go on it as much as I used to myself. Your statement means I need to work on my delivery. That's it, I'm dropping off a resume to Pizza Hut. I actually had plans to watch Aoi Bungaku at some point, and now I really should. It sounds quite fine.

    Oh? I actually think I've seen that at some point, but I'm not certain. As for Jaws, it certainly got worse as it went, even hitting the bottom of the barrel with Jaws 3D, where they used the worst CG ever witnessed for the shark. I think people are just bad at associating these facts.

    Mein Fuhrer, you always know what to say.

    Agreed, definitely agreed. I looked her up the other day and had a brain lapse- I temporarily forgot she was Suzuha in Steins;Gate. Faaaaantastic, absolutely wonderful.

    I agree, he just had another layer to him as a character too. Like, I had the feeling I wanted to know more of Oreki's character, and I could do with or without learning about Chitanda's.

    I generally enjoy those videos more, since regular reviews seem to follow the same patterns and I feel as if I've seen the same thing somewhere else. With videos like these though, it's always new since it's mostly a joke overall. :3

    I thought you'd agree. That qualm about Hayate, I said the EXACT same thing in my complaints. Like, if it's good, then you wouldn't have to say this. Do they know? -.-

    Oh trust me, stay away from anything political, religious or topical in the sense of personal preferences. I know that kills a ton of stuff in that forum, but stuff like "Photographs", "Laugh a Day" and even "My word, that's an interesting fact!" can yield some quite interesting posts. Burn the spider thread though. Do...do you see what I did there?

    Goooooood, good. I haven't even properly seen a Twilight movie, but people around me are probably trying to kill me, as they always bring up clips from it. Never really grew up with Frankenstein, but I have seen the original film and wondered why people got it so mixed up. The one that always hit me was when people called the Great Shark "Jaws". Like, that's the name of the film, but they never called it that.

    Shall we eventually find a fascist leader as well, while we're at it?

    I'd recommend them; unlike Nanoha's regular theme music (a mix of intense and melancholic tracks), these singles hold B and C-sides that are just really upbeat and cute. Sweet Darlin', Melody and Niji iro Balloon are amongst my favourites, but there are a few others too. This is coming from someone who wasn't exactly a huge fan of the overall series. It has merits, but I never kept any of the seasons.

    Yeah, I don't want to describe the situation as a "one-trick pony", but I think the glowing eyes suckered everyone in. When it appeared every episode in the same delivery, the character started to get a little boring (or as a better descriptor, formulaic). One could argue Oreki is similar, but to be honest, we've seen other ends of his tolerance spectrum a lot more.

    Oh don't worry, at some point I really plan to. With my shocking poor sense of comedy I even started writing a couple unfinished scripts and stuff. I'm honestly planning to not "review" in a formulaic sense, but to have that little...jump-cut friendly overview style focused on funnies. To best describe it, I'd probably point to one of JonTron's videos. This guy's everything I've come to love in a YouTube video, and he's got different styles of video as well. I think it does a good job getting people interested without being too biased.

    Oh god. Did you know there's a recent "spiders" thread in the general chat too? I am NOT clicking that.

    Aren't you talking about the Jacob fanboys? Because that totally already exists, and it's a bigger beast than the Frankenstein monster. Speaking of that, isn't it strange how people call it "Frankenstein" when that was the doctor's name? Same thing with Jaws.

    Young'un, we live in an age of monetary deficiencies; holding back on a potential investment means suicide! I'm not the bad guy here.

    Tamura Yukari's fantastic. Last thing I really loved from her were all the singles she did for Nanoha- really cute. She just sounds so...so...sinister with that laugh. How did she even develop that?

    Strange thing for me was...I really liked Chitanda at the start, and she's the only one who slowly got stale for me. She's definitely got surprise moments for sure, but she kinda felt like the one out of place when all she did was "get curious". Out of the four, she's kinda dropped around the lower parts for me. The interactions between everyone always stayed good though.

    That's alright, just wanted to make sure. Come to think of it, I'm really only on there daily because of Game Grumps anymore. If I ever get around to investing into a good microphone, I'll get to doing uploading. Fixed the MAL problem, thanks for the info. Speaking of MAL, I must've been very bored or something, as I completely rewrote my "About Me" on my account, and now it sounds like a drunk wrote it. Good.

    Something about that "^^" is scary. Admit it, you're breeding a tarantula army and are planning to invade my house soon, aren't you?

    Nail in the coffin, more like.

    Are...aren't those all the same thing? If they aren't, then my whole life has been one big lie.

    I'm patenting them, more like. I need to make my living somehow, so I might as well do it at the expense of others.

    Definitely, definitely. Not even kidding, Lemon-chan has become one of my all time favourite characters. How can one character be so cute, sinister and lovable all at the same time?

    Right, I recently finished that so I recall seeing it. Hyouka definitely is a special series, and while the excitement died amongst the fanbase, I still very much liked it. It's not exactly K-ON-esque in the way that one character (specifically Yui) could run a damned show by themselves and still be mindlessly amusing, but the interactions between all of the characters is what makes all of them likable. Oh, and howdy back on @MAL! Is there a specific reason MAL refuses to let me see your list at all? Also, there was another fellow with the name "Echoes" in his username on YouTube; I wracked my brain figuring out you weren't the new subscriber to my YouTube. @.@ Why is internet so confuzzling.

    We all have those moments, to be more precise. You should see me should a giant spider come along; that'll be quite the treat for anyone around. Y'know, the ones who have to carry out my unconscious body.

    Alongside YouTube commenters and 4chan members, right?

    Will do, Captain. Any other groups I should ridicule while I'm at it?

    Like I said, don't expect too much, it just did better than the first. "Ten-hundred" shall now be a descriptor and valid rating.

    Finished Ano Natsu entirely today; it was just too good. Just misses the mark of being on AnoHana's level, but damn it comes so close. Might have a look at Twins sometime.

    Oh wow, that's a hell of a coincidence indeed. I had a similar one where I just finished Chihayafuru and then Karuta appeared in the next episode of Hyouka. Nowhere near as obscure, but still. Mayaka is definitely my favourite still, and let me tell you, the series strikes back again on the second last episode. You'll know which it is for sure.

    It's been forever since I watched it, and for good reason. That damn movie scared me as a child.

    Yup, it's just THAT good. The commercial writers shake their heads in shame at their own scripts after reading them.

    Majority of French people here are separatists, so if they find me they'll just form a Bloc Quebecois and try to leave.

    Agreed, first episode felt really off. I'm giving it my safety rule, and the second episode is definitely better. Nowhere near as enjoyable as the original series, but it's still a lot better than the first episode. I would catch Jojo's Bizarre Adventure if my list wasn't so damn full this season.

    Oh really? Never really got around to watching those, especially after the mixed opinions I heard. Lemon-chan needs appear everywhere though; I love that crazy girl.

    I've been watching "Return to Oz", if you know what I mean.

    I do have the movie on file, that's not a bad idea. You know what they say about fanscripting a piece of genius..."you can do it!" Okay, I'll do it. I'll do all of it.

    You won't even support a war against France? How dare you. I guess the war would be over too quickly to lose all of your money.

    It's been great fun; Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is something I didn't even consider, but I'm glad I'm going through it. It's closer to the original story of Hayate, so while it pays homage to certain moments from the originals, it's just kinda...meh. I'm hoping they prove me wrong, because right now it's more of a drama with comedic moments. I have a feeling Robotics;Notes will be the equalizer between those two.

    Loving Ano Natsu, it's wonderful. The instant Kai was on the screen, the hair made me shout "Jintan!". It's going to be near impossible to top my favourite character though, Lemon-chan. :3

    You forget, we're not celebrities. We'll probably drop the soap right in the middle of a pile of naked crime lords.

    Right right, you're catching on! Another is that Coke and Alka Seltzer in your mouth at the same time is actually good fun, no matter what anyone says.

    Not just Rosebud, but how the camera positioning slowly gets more and more warped as the film goes on, reflecting how the protagonist is supposed to be feeling. I miss that movie.

    George Bush also liked to throw money at the concept of war, are you for that as well?

    Boy oh boy, have I been catching a lot of stuff. I'll list below so it's more concise, but there's definitely quite a few you should check out this time:

    Shinsekai Yori- Set in a very unique world and involves paranormal activities. Quite enjoyable so far.

    K - It's a visual spectacle. Plot's just getting warmed up, but it seems like it could be quite fascinating. Character designs are all really fresh, so it's nice to see.

    Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun - It's shoujo, and it's good shoujo. Looks like another "Chihayafuru-esque" feeling, but sad to say it doesn't feature a cool strategy game. But hey, it's all about the character interactions, right?

    Little Busters! - Oh-ho-ho, the big one I've been waiting for. It's lovely to hear the game's dynamic soundtrack and the revamped opening, and it's good to see the characters again. Episode 1 was decent at best however, as they used a lot of cutaways and slides to...probably lower initial costs? Test the waters? Not sure. Still, it's Little Busters, and what started as a visual novel doesn't need a spectacle to tell its story anyways. Gonna be looking forward to this for a while.

    Hayate no Gotoku: Can't Take My Eyes Off You - I can definitely take my eyes off of this series...until next week. Off the bat, it's a brand new story separate from the original two series, and as such I have to value it on its own merits. Problem is, it just doesn't really have any. The backgrounds look a lot more detailed, but it's all just bland and straight to the face. Character designs bother me, and the serious lack of comedy makes it hard to transition between the last season (although it's not supposed to be linked). Don't know for sure yet, but this is a sleeper at the moment.

    Sword Art Online - Gotta keep going, y'know? It's just an overall enjoyable series, so I'm glad it's still got another half to go. Being trapped in a video game and having to finish it with the constant risk of dying for real is interesting.

    Kokoro Connect - Okay, it'll have to wait for the BD episodes to finish, but I really liked this series. Five friends experiencing phenomena that mess with their regular lives and emotions intrigued me, and it's good they kept with it.

    Plus I'm still planning to watch Psycho-Pass and Robotics;Notes (the parallel equivalence of Steins;Gate). Oh, and I got through S1 of Rinne no Lagrange, getting to the second. AND I'm going through Ano Natsu de Matteru; I'm actually liking it almost as much as Ano Hana.

    Yeah, I'd wager SWAT and bomb control would be after us not long after. Screw the conscience, I don't wanna go to jail! They...they don't even have TV!

    I read too far into everything. How else do you think I discovered the secrets of the universe?

    Very much agreed. Some of the greatest pieces of media to ever exist thrive through clever uses of speaking with imagery. Citizen Kane's a great one that comes to mind.

    Switch to channel 4, that's always safe. It's the one Souma, Lelouch and President Bush used.

    *gasp* Y...you can't! They'll find you with that many!

    P.S. Which series have you lined up for the Fall season? I've got so many this time, it's mad!
