2016-08-01 01:19KrimzonStrikerSorry, had to add a separate post for my anime list, got long winded in my descriptions. You can just condense this back to a few comments in the previous post
Heard the same thing, definitely got to get back to that along with the rest of my previous list, I'm also tempted to add that Kiznaiver show to my 'to watch from spring' list as well. Also, freaking Sousei/Twin Stars is getting 50 episodes, making me think I've got no choice by to watch it now just to see some of my favorite moments from the manga animated.
Now as for my definite summer list, I've got:
Amaama to inazuma: Cute/relaxing slice of life to change the pace up. Manga's still ongoing though and is relatively low-priority for me.
ReLIF: I'm interested in the premise like you and have been skimming through the web manga, but since it's short at 13 episodes and the manga is ongoing with a possible downer ending given everyone from the MC's class is supposed to forget him after the experiment it'll round out my low priority list alongside Amaama.
Kono Bijutsu-bu ni wa Mondai ga Aru!: The manga's been on my to read list and fills my highschool comedy romance series needs. Plus it's about drawing/art, which should be interesting.
Masou Gakuen HxH: Fills my ecchi fantasy/scifi harem guilty pleasure quota, plus I like the silver haired chick who seems to be the frontrunner to win the MC.
Shokugeki S2: Obvious
Taboo Tattoo: the manga/story is actually pretty solid like, like high school Ghost in the Shell or Full!Metal Panic with deadly magic/physics bending powers instead of mechs/androids. You've got spies and international politics in an alternate history world that's a bit more engaging and visceral than say Mahouka was. Definitely recommend you check this series out at some point, anime or manga, and maybe buy the licensed volumes as well which I plan to do eventually.
I've got others on my maybe pile, Tales (which I really should watch the game before the anime I think), Qualidea Code whose character designs I like but will wait to see if its ending bombs before having it fill my serious high school magic combat needs, and finally Nejimaki which should fit right up my alley, smart male lead in a fictional historical world trying to navigate the political waters, but said male lead has a... vice that I find rather annoying and thus have put off reading the manga counterpart for awhile, also I don't like the art of the anime so much but we'll see if I can get over that at some point.
2016-08-01 01:16KrimzonStrikerYeah, that seems like a safe enough dish to start with. Yeah, but even if you have to aim smaller you should still be able to find a manageable enough pizza recipe on the web somewhere maybe. It's only worst on my end since my mom shops in the local Chinatown a lot and I have no idea which places she shops at, nor even some of the ingredients she uses cause she can't pronounce them in English, so I guess I'm going to have to say goodbye to a lot of my old staple dishes at some point Yeah, it kind of got shelved these last two weeks just cause I was in such a rush to finish my projects but HOPEFULLY after this week I'll really be able to devote myself to getting into better shape
Exactly, though once again I won't mind a different anime adaptation set in the U.C if they decide to go that route as well, and yes I'm still talking about 0081 <_< Oh yeah, definitely in agreement with you there, I've had a basic outline in my head for awhile but something always kept me from putting it to paper, happens with a lot of my stories, fan or original unfortunately Mind I throw some of those story ideas I have in my head to you? If someone else confirms they're solid I might be more confident in finally typing it up. You know I kept thinking the same but Thunderbolt keeps surprising me with how many people I was sure were dead but keep making it, we'll have to see but I'll let you know once the manga reaches its end anyway.
True, in the meantime I'm enjoying the dub more and more now that the cast has expanded with Naze's Turbines getting introduced.
Yup, glad it all worked out then. Well, based on their release schedule for all the previous series and their sequel/new seasons in the franchise they've been pretty good in getting a new series out within a time frame of 1, maybe 2 years at most so I'm pretty confident things will probably be ready by the end of 2017/early 2018.
Well, as nice as showing those examiners up was it hopefully looks like Centrals going to finally get out the big guns in the next round, though we'll have to see, the E10 both former and current is still noticeably absent after all. Eh, it's one of these eternal questions about order/security versus freedom/creativity, even if you have some notable exceptions in skill it's the rebels example that's the problem because it could poison the well as it were from the standard Central wants to set for all chefs, period. I know, and I'll settle for some cute/interesting romantic development along the way if they save an official declaration of a relationship for the end, peeved as I am with that route a lot of the time. Yeah, I've tried to scour the internet for any spoilers/info but all I've found is the ones on the animesuki forum which say Alice sent Ryo to disrupt a cooking competition for the right to be engaged to her and he won handily, now no ones officially acknowledged they're engaged and the two of them don't seem to be aware of the implication but since Ryo did technically win, well... the implication is definitely there anyway. Probably, though I could also see him (and Erina) traveling around the world and learning more about food for awhile, like his dad before him along with being in keeping with Soma's mantra of wanting to explore the frontier and experience all the flavors out there going back to the first chapter. I hope so, I'm definitely noticed some glaring cuts/editing in the anime and can feel how rushed the episodes are becoming, though that they cut in stuff from the 2nd OVA episode into episode 5 makes me more optimistic they'll address the daycare chapter at some point. Yup, and why I'm jumping fully on board the Altair series for my fictional medieval politics/warfare needs.
Understandable, and what I generally like to do myself. I would advise that you set a minimum goal of chapter 19 for your run through of Altair as well, oh and use this link for chapter 19 itself though: http://kissmanga.com/Manga/Shoukoku-...r/019?id=93563 because for some damn reason the mangatraders.org link I sent you has a misplaced page for that chapter. I'd also advise reading chapter 35 on kissmanga as well, as they have a slightly more updated translation, otherwise stick to mangatraders for everything else as they have the better collection of scans for this series IMO. He's definitely a complicated guy, and someone to keep in mind of even as you read further and the cast of characters just starts to explode. Well, Cardcaptors has always been more mellow than Tsubasa, and given the current plotline it's not that dissimilar from the second Card Captor movie actually.
2016-07-30 02:10KrimzonStrikerOkay, well that was a lot of ball busting these last few days to get my project in but I did it and now I'm set for my new certificate and to finally get to my responses
Cool, let me know what your final impressions are when you reach the end, especially that added epilogue I mentioned I know, and I agree it worked as an ending though I always felt it was a shame there'd never be an opportunity for sequels for OS because of it, good as its spiritual successors in Murumasa and Dragon's Crown were in their own right. Well I hope things have cleared up for you via your schedule as I'll be sending over WOIAF via email to you now. Still trying to figure out what to do about Warcraft Chronicles though.
I'll keep it in mind as I mull over the decision, for now I'm going to worry about just managing to get the hardware to play any games first though. Probably not, though I'm a bit curious if you might get RPG worn out running through the gauntlet of XV, LG, P5, and now Horizon Speaking of have you figured out what you'll be doing about LG in October?
Yeah, though I'm still peeved they're not doing that for more games in the franchise like that prequel Meiji era version of the game, would have been fun to shake things up with a new cast of characters. It'll all depend on what new games developers decide to do on their own in terms of pushing the envelope for the Vita, and that could become more of an option the longer Nintendo keeps stalling in regards to their own handheld I would think.
Oh, of course they didn't use HD in the Remastered version, I mean it's not like that kind of thing isn't half the damn appeal/hope for rereleasing older games*sarcasm* <_< Yeah, once again not something either of us will probably get into no matter how many slapped together games they throw at us, but speaking of Batman at least Telltales new title got a trailer finally, looks like a very interesting combinations at the very least. Eh, well given they haven't perfected the gaming aspect I imagine we're still several years away before seeing any other applications for VR fit for mainstream consumption. Ah, found out it was just a official mod for Ark: Survival Evolved, still a cool concept though.
Well as I said, I don't we've got anything to really fear based on what we've seen, if it's not good which I still think it has the potential to be then it'll at least be average, which should more than allow for the other aspects of the game to shine through as you said, but honestly based on what we've seen so far I really don't think Horizon won't at least be on the Tomb Raider reboot level story wise, and that's not even factoring the unique setting the former has going for it. Agreed, though I once didn't mind so much as I was hungry to devour any new lore and insight into Aloey's world, but I understand it's not for everyone so will settle for less comments in that case.
Oh wow, they're really pricing 2.8 as if it were a full game? Definitely youtube then.
Yeah, well like I said I hope said trend will include 0081 at some point <_< Hey, you've got a long road ahead of you and if the opportunity to play it isn't available now then I'm sure one will come in the future at some point.
Understood, do what you think works for you in the end.
Regarding Rebels you can't believe how happy this makes me, including the new book and seeing how this Thrawn is incorporated I'm now also hopefully we might end up with an in cannon scenario where Thrawn lives since I think it was said somewhere that this Thrawn definitely has his own agenda in regards to working for the Empire, so I'm crossing my fingers that Thrawn does an Empire of the Hand scenario and abandons ship prior to Return of the Jedi. Regardless the 3rd season of Rebels is looking sweet, Ezra's leveled up which helps his character development tremendously, and I cannot wait for Fall now
2016-07-21 14:53KrimzonStrikerHey, no problem you take care of what you need to do, and honestly I'm a bit busy myself trying to finish these projects by their due date next week for my coding classes. And my condolences for your loss, I've faced a similar feeling after going to see my grandmother in China before she passed away soon after. I'll forward to hearing from you when you're ready.
2016-07-13 20:24KrimzonStrikerEA: I still don't know if I'm a fan of how glossy all the skin textures are but as previously state they're getting better in adding more life/flush at least. I agree they weren't very good but I'm a story completionist at heart and would like it if they just wrapped the FU stuff up already, mostly so we can move on. Well I've always liked the gameplay of TF, but now it feels like there's a real stake in the franchise with this story mode. I'm of the same mindset as you, at the very least TF2 will be a compelling youtube watch now.
Beths: Well as I said I don't know anything about the Prey series to really care if it's a reboot or not, just have to see when it comes out if it goes down well. Huh, I might have miscontrued stuff after that gameinformer article discussion we had about Dishonored 2, but as you said at the least it's something to watch videos of when it comes out. Cool that Corvo finally got a VA btw.
MS: Exactly, this just shows they didn't have more concrete things to announce They could have just given a release date at most, not devote an entire section of their conference for it. But it's their showcase, I can't believe they didn't verify/go over the demos beforehand, Sony surely did after all given their orchestra coordination. Moving on from MS then.
US: Maybe, but I'm not just not into the whole Anonymous storyline angle. That I can agree, hopefully Southpark and For Honor shake things up enough for them going forward. The new Steep game looks pretty cool too even if I'm not into sports in general at least this shakes that field up a little as well.
Sony: There definitely similarities but the setting/storyline will showcase plenty of differences between this and LoU I think such as the magic and all, for one thing you can actually level up your kid to make him useful Cool, should be a fun fall all around between LG and XV in that case You might be right but you got to give him credit for being the pioneer, and this Detriot game might be the one that lets him take back the title of best in this genre. I'm fine with not, definitely in no rush to see the result of whatever Kojima was smoking that day after that trailer <_< Understandable.
Nin: Same, but I think it just shows how deprived Nintendo is right now that they did it this way. I'm not saying I dislike it, it's just weird for me to look at right now, especially after the remastered Twilight Princess. It'd be a hard title to avoid, I'd revisit that thought after looking at your schedule and when it's released, worst case it shits on the shelf for you to come back to at some point, lord knows the next LoZ won't be out for some time after this one.
Hmm, something I'll definitely consider checking out then. Hopefully GR2 does it's predeccsor well in that case, it looks interesting in any event. If you say so regarding Zodiac, XII just wasn't one of my favorites in general to be honest, now THAT had dull characters in comparison to X. I figured, but I've been patient enough as is and at least I have reason to hope in regards to TWEWY, lord knows Nintendo would love to have something like that to fill up it's conference versus riding Zelda to death <_< Ah, you're correct, sucks but I'll look forward to seeing VIIR at PSX regardless in any case, not going to let it being episodic stop me if waiting over a decade didn't.
Hey, I'm feeling the same sweat over these issues too, but we just got to hope there's still enough time to get this sorted out by this point. That's good in most respects, a patch show's that they are semi-aware at least even as they push forward, along with a way to address potential problems in the future hopefully. I don't either, but I just have to believe they aren't THAT moronic/oblivious to risk it anyway. Alright, good point, especially when we're so near release day, but we'll just have to see. I thought you would, and based on what the new trailers showed I'm feeling a bit better about the combat as well given we saw those combos with the party memberes that I kept mentioning, which I hope will address some of the issues had about controlling/coordinating them.
I share the same sentiments, maybe Nier will get me over my Drakengard hangups after all, but I'll wait and see. Have a lot of other games to investigate before I deal with that one.
2016-07-13 14:52KrimzonStrikerMoving all the RWBY stuff here, but first was there any word on how long the new season is? Everything else from RTX looks good so far, I'm generally okay with the new animation style if it makes things easier for them now that Monty's gone, though it reminds me of our conversations on Legend of Zelda: BotW all over again based on the style we've seen so far. And I figured any time skip couldn't be that large, it should take that years on end to reach Haven and no way RT was just going to skip RNJR's arrival/investigation. As for specific characters it looks like Yang still hasn't fully recovered psychologically just yet, hopefully that's fixed this Volume, and based on the Q and A on how Jaune's innocence has died I'm also hopeful we get to see him really step up now. Also, you seem to have gotten your wish about seeing Semblance's evolve, based on Ruby's showcase in the trailer it seems like she can now disassemble completely into her petals and come back together however she wants given that three way split against the Gorilla or that hurricane cage, was very cool to see and can't wait for the others to show off their own potential evolution's as well.
Also, I know you weren't that impressed but you should see some of these new episodes of RWBY Chibi, they're getting much better/funnier in my opinion
Well I'll hopefully find out myself soon enough, was able to get 3 out of 4 days of passes for comic-con which should be enough time for me to talk to RT. Well yes, but BB's a SERIOUS kind of convoluted mess that I can actually care about story wise
Well chapter 83 came out, and boy did Isayama take all our discussions on the need for a strategist to screw us over with this latest dilemma, which will have lasting consequences with either choice between Eren and Levi, while ALSO screwing us out of our need for information from the prisoners. That basement had better have SOMETHING to make this all worthwhile now <_< Also our talks regarding Zeke's connection to Grisha seemed to be spot on, but whether they elaborate further remains to be seen. Man, between this, me reading Arslan novel spoilers, and catching up on the Freezing manga finally, with it's Evangaleion-esque plotline, manga readings become pretty depressing lately. I need something more lighter/feel good right now
And comes at a good time in order to shake the Marvel movie universe up a bit. I hope so, as I said I really enjoy his character as a villain. I understand the difficulties but they've got an opportunity to try given that they have spared him, I can only imagine they have some kind of plans for Zemo in the future regardless. Yeah, best not to dwell on the failure of F4, moving on.
Well, one way is the one with Legion where they've been expanding/elaborating on the existing storyline, answering a lot of longstanding questions while raising new possibilities because of it. Based on the description it sounds like it'll work well with Zahn's approach then. Well, check it out for yourself here. Very pretty, and as I said I really think it's something you should take a look at in terms of learning more about the story and world.
Cool stuff, combined with other trailers I'm feeling a bit better after the E3 fiasco now. Same here, it'd be a shame not to see these as DLC at some point. Was that in the video you linked to me, cause I only recall Lightning's gun sword in that video. Regarding Kingsglaive good reviews at least don't HURT, though like you I'm not taking anything at face value anymore, but it at least corresponds with my own impression from the previews that Kingsglaive will be good, hopefully we'll see for ourselves soon though. Brotherhood is at least pushing on rather smoothly, with nice recaps on how all the boys relationships developed (you need to check out Prompto in episode 2 if you already haven't ), though I'm looking forward to episode 4 the most with Ignis since I find him the most interesting of Noctis' group. Oh sure, tell me about Hooded man, I've been very curious about him in general, glad we at least confirmed he's in the game in any event.
Cool, keep me posted as you progress on both those fronts, would like your final thoughts once you're done with OS:L and initial ones for GoT.
Alright, I'll keep said new Voltron in mind then. Trust me, you don't WANT to remember that nonsense <_<
2016-07-10 23:21KrimzonStrikerI'm honestly probably not that much better as I don't really practice to get the steps to stick, hopefully that changes before I really do need to cook for myself Not hard depending on what kind of pizza you make, though the high end versions are almost always out of reach just cause households don't have the right ovens for it. Yeah, though I doubt I'll ever be able to look up some of the cooking methods my mom's developed over years through sheer experience and experimentation on the web, but I'll make do the best I can. We'll see if I can remember that now that my schedule's opened up for me to go to the gym a bit more. Me neither, but at least I learned what few drinks/wines I do like and as we've said it's a good conversation starter, like how others pick up sports and such.
I agree, though we'll have to see if they make such an announcement after Loum is finished, right now they can still get away with the excuse of 'it's still just a prequel' after all. Yeah, makes me keep thinking I should write this U.C Gundam alternate fanfiction I have in my head where Sayla went with Char to Axis instead of back to White Base, encouraging him to take on more responsibility right from the start and so on. Well I saw the compilation movie version, interesting that they left it open ended at the same point in the manga. I won't say Thunderbolt is my favorite but what makes it intriguing for me is that it continues immediately AFTER the One Year War, which makes me curious to see how Daryl and Fleming's battle will end exactly under those circumstances.
You can see that for yourself at some point. That is always the risk with Gundam series, especially recently, but I'm willing to give the new blood in IBO's staff the chance to break that pattern hopefully.
Huh, wouldn't have guessed that based on what little I've seen of Hunter but I'll take your word for it. Moving on then.
Well, let's just appreciate the fact that you are near the one known city in Texas that does support your interests at least. Or that could just be an exception, like how Microsoft is in Seattle instead of Silicon Valley, if no one you've talked to has confirmed otherwise best just take their word for it I think given they live there. Glad to hear it, and hope everything was okay with your grandfather. Well let's just hope you're right and they do have a new series in mind for after IBO 2nd season.
We'll have to see if that's the case in the next trial, for now as of the 173 and 174 I expect the other rebels to have passed the first trial as easily as Soma's group, so I'm eager to see if you're right and if things will get more interesting in the next set of trials this week. Gah, don't jinx it, I'd actually like see Soma and Erina's relationship take form as it were rather than end it just as they finally make it official <_< Had forgotten about that, good catch, though I wonder what Soma's, and Kurokiba's since he and Alice are technically engaged according to the Light Novels, place will be if they ever did marry into that family while Alice and Erina are busy with the school/business. Edit: Cute ErinaxSoma moment in 175, it's still rather slow going but at least we're making progress there Yeah, I heard and you can see it in the new episodes how rushed they are because of it, I'm not happy about it but they're covering the essentials enough that I think they could pull it off in 13, and I hope they'll still have the kid daycare chapter they skipped in an OVA at some point. Least it's not the same garbage as with Arslan which only has 8 episodes for it's 2nd season Thinking of even dropping that series after the Pars liberation arc is done, Tanaka is going back to his LOGH method of killing all the main characters off in the second half of the novels from what I've heard
Yeah, give it some time, it starts out pretty slow as the story builds the world/universe but trust me things get much more interesting once you get into the 10-20ish chapter range of the story and the stakes start rising. While I can't comment on Halil Pasha, our MC Mahmut's guardian, I will instead redirect you to pay attention to Zaganos Pasha instead, Mahmut's dark haired counterpart and leader of the war hawk party of Turkyie, his relationship with Mahmut gets very interesting as the story progresses. Indeed, slow progress right now cause CC:CCA is a monthly but I hope Syaoran can take on a greater role in the magical side of things with Sakura this time around.
I'll let you know once I finally finish Kabenari off in any case, and when that's done I can finally finalize my To Watch list for this summer and the finished stuff from the spring which I will share with you next time. Have you settled on what you're watching this summer as well?
2016-07-07 21:11KrimzonStrikerHah! Sweet timing, glad it worked out for you As long as you're happy with it that's fine, plus the convenience of playing OS:L on the go is nice too. That's been my own impression and most people who've played it have shared that same sentiment online, I'm very happy for the series, only thing I could wish more would be a real spin-off prequel or alternate story where we could avoid the apocalypse, cause if I'm honest I'd prefer Erion to be here versus our world Well it's up to you, and lord knows you deserve a break after how hectic your schedule's been, so enjoy it. And hey along with the handhelds you can also catch up on anime/manga and the Game of Thrones/ASOIAF series, plenty of other things to fill your free time I imagine
That does actually seem rather tempting, especially when I get frustrated with longer versions though once again I have my concerns on the need to grind to make up for it, but used occasionally and I can definitely see some advantages now. Well, cross the February bridge when it gets here. It should be nice change of pace for you this year, though I will bring up the Last Guardian in our E3 post later.
Same here, I'm sure that'll be fun like all cleaning up tasks are, digital or otherwise <_< Hah, true that, I used to think 8GB's was now we got ones in the 20's and beyond, should probably pick one of those up myself now that I think about it
Suppose that's true, but at least we'll potentially go out with a new Phoneix Wright game which I'm looking forward to if nothing else for the reunion with Maya finally Eh, I don't think the Vita's reached it's limit, I actually don't think it's reached it's full potential and hopefully that gives time for other developers to explore options with it in the near future *cough* Valkyria Chronicles 3 *cough*
Well that's what I mean in that there were very minor as far as complaints go for IX (speaking of you seen the Remastered version?) which I feel applies to what was said about X as well, but moving on. Yeah it doesn't matter to us (though REVII VR might be interesting as a horror experience for those who're into that), some stuff might be interesting like what Rocksteady does with it's Batman title and piloting an X-Wing would be cool but nothing to really grab me or demonstrate the technology is viable as a mainstream thing just yet. Yeah, there was this one title especially where you take control of various animals from bugs to dinosaurs doing all kinds of survival things like hunting or raising your young etc that seems really interesting from PC, will have to look up more information on that at some point.
While the dialogue doesn't blow one away at this point I think most people were rather impressed with the strong/confident portrayal of Aloey which I think will help sell the game whatever certain Japanese executives think about female main characters for box office games <_< as I said I'm not expecting anything award winning in terms of character interactions/dialogue but that doesn't mean it won't be adequate to bridge the story/rest of the game. While I definitely think they can cut down on the amount of comments it'll still be necessary for introductory gameplay elements and to break up long dry spells of exploring in the open world while also giving better insight in Aloey, so I was never as perturbed about them as others even if they were excessive at times. Well between those two and For Honor I don't see many other opportunities for people to try and horn in on Feb. now but as you say we'll see.
Ah, youtube it is then, and yeah, don't break the bank for something that's relatively short in that case.
Huh, interesting, not a series I'm going to to look in to but good to know if it ever becomes a trend for Gundam games in general in America.
Well it's fine if that's how you feel, thought I'd bring it up since your summer schedule seems freer before XV but do whatever makes sense for you. Despite being extremely buggy I like the game as a good time sink, so whenever you can get to it on your own time and dime is fine.
