    True that. It's important to keep an open mind, although that easier said than done at times.

    Luckily I've never been forced to sit through enough of something to forcibly change my mind. I don't think my mother will ever grow to like Saw-like movies either, but she might drift to where she tolerates violence and gore to a higher level.

    Thanks, indeed!

    Pink hair is nice. I have a propensity for green and blond hair personally, but I love every color of the rainbow. At least when it comes to anime hair.

    Looking forward to it. Played a little further, just got past the clock-tower and took a break there. That sliding-puzzle apple drove me off the wall. Sorry for the late answer, my computer broke down twice... old piece of junk. >-<

    Edit: I just had to mention Boardwalk Empire again. Yes, it is damn smooth! Steve Buscemi plays an amazing role, everything looks, sounds and feels like the 20s, and the writing is just top notch. One of the best television series I've ever seen. It deals with everything that was going on at the time. The prohibition era, racial tensions and the rise of the KKK, women's struggle to gain the right to vote, it's all there.

    Yeah. It's fine to compare, but to assume that it conforms to the same trends that are popular now isn't a good idea; at least watch it on its own merit.

    I think my mother is along the same lines. She's not big on violence and gore either, though my younger sisters "force" her to sit through horrible "horror" movies when they're there, so she's getting more used to it I guess. Some people just have different sensibilities, and a movie that's know for its "ultra-violence" won't appeal to them.

    Yeah, thanks. It was a good while ago, perhaps as much as a decade ago, and it's been quiet since, and with it being easier to catch as well, it's not a huge concern anymore, albeit an unpleasant through from time to time.

    Those are all great. Overall, I found season 2's characters quite a bit weaker than the first's, but it was still very enjoyable. Weird how they put almost exclusively normal (black and brown) colored hair girls in the second season, while the first tasted the rainbow. Never seen Shugo Chara, and from what I've seen, it looks pretty girly aesthetically, but there's nothing wrong with as far as I'm concerned. In fact, I'm usually more concerned that a show will go too far in the other direction; shoujo is generally preferable to shounen to me. It generally has better themes and less shallow stories.

    I was just playing some more now (why it took me some time to respond), and Simon just got murdered and I'm heading out to investigate.

    It's easy to feel that way, especially if you're looking it the show after being exposed to dozens of weak and boring male leads that seem to have become popular in recent years. It's a trivial mistake to confuse Shinji with one of them, and those do usually drag the show down.

    Thanks! While I love A Clockwork Orange, I think it's an absolutely brilliant film; it's not the sort of movie I expect everyone to enjoy, or even tolerate. The movie has two rape scenes, plenty of unpleasant violence and a plot that questions very serious issues not everyone is prepared to think about. I don't know if I'd recommend it to my mother either.

    Heh, good thing she was checking on you there, yeah. You're probably right about driving, but it's not something I'm going to start doing unless I really have to. If I get a job that I can't walk or take public transportation to, for instance. I had never heard the word thrombus before, I'm used to the Norwegian term for it, but it sounds correct that it has something do with thrombi. It's basically a condition where vein become clotted, which caused internal bleeding and other serious issues. I'm being imprecise because medical terms are not something I'm very familiar with in English, but essentially the veins clog. The Norwegian term literally translates to "blood-plug", as in the one in your sink. Thanks for your concern, she has recovered several years ago now, after the major surgery it was fixed, but there's always the chance that it'll happen again. At least now they'll know; last time the major complications were due to a huge misdiagnosis because of the rarity of the condition.

    Aye, there's little to dislike. In any other series, I'm sure she'd be the star of the show for me, but with Kami Nomi, especially the first season, I've got my hands full with Kanon and Elsie. I haven't heard her in that role, I think.

    I'm actually playing a little bit of Layton right now. Chasing after the white cat and finding myself at the inn right now. Boardwalk Empire is one of the few newer TV series that are just amazing. Huge budget, authentic 1920s feel, Steve Buscemi as a slick two-faced mayor/gangster. It's awesome.

    Haha no probs ^w^ BTW HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! (even though we don't celebrate it here )

    Yeah indeed it does... All of my friends are like "You Chinese, no speak?" (Ok a bit of overexaggerating ) But Japanese is somewhat easier, but either way, it also has its difficulties -.-

    Oh I see... Sounds like an excuse just to get money But I would say that it would be alright... Tablets... and movement... Don't get it

    Hehe yeah he indeed 'LOVES' his games... But... they're all dating sims... like BORING!!! Get some variation Keima!

    Wow we made a bloodsite Although Ayumi FTW!!! HAHAAH!!!
    Haha just sums up most of my genres at least ^^ Eh? How troublesome I'd better read those for your effort!! I'll get back on it of course!! Idolm@ster is one of them right? You watching Shana finale by any chance?

    Haha and they're so close by!! JAPAN QUIT BEING STINGY~~~

    What I find nice about the show is that you don't really need the symbolism. You can take it or leave it. It's has an interesting plot and good characters without needing to go all the way down the rabbit hole, unless you want to. Shinji being whiny is the one complaint against the show that I just find stupid. Everything else I leave up to subjectivity, but saying that the reason you don't like it because the kid is whiny is a bit silly. That's the point of the show, for two reasons. One is that he's a distraught 14 year old boy with father issues, no self-esteem and a bunch of other issues. Secondly, it's meant to show more realistically how it would really turn out if it happened like it does in so many mecha shows, and the world's fate was left in the hands of emotional, vexed teenagers. It's fine not to like that, but to say the show would have been better it it had been absent is missing the point.

    It's sort of like saying Clockwork Orange would have been better if only Alex wasn't such a douchebag.

    Ah, good thing luck was with you that day. It's very understandable you'd be uncomfortable driving after that, heck, I'm uncomfortable with driving now, completely without any bad experiences. I'm not a car person, though. I doubt I'll ever own one. I wouldn't call it a phobia, but I don't think I could ever be comfortable behind the wheel. About my mother's condition, it's apparently called "thrombus" in English. She has one of the world's rarest blood types, which predisposes her to it, and she's had it twice. She almost lost her leg the last time and has to have major surgery. An expert had to cancel his vacation and fly home to do the procedure. I'm still thankful for that.

    She is a cool lady, and her character design is very nice to look at. I've no knowledge of the manga, don't really read a lot of that, but yeah, Kanae Itou is always a joy to listen to. Such a recognizable and adorable voice.

    I haven't played much further yet, mostly due to finding out that Boardwalk Empire's second season had started. I've been out of the loop. But I think I'll play some more later today, now that you mention it.

    It's highly psychological, filled with symbolism, both religious and secular, and a plot that has high aspirations. A lot of people don't think it delivers, and that the symbolism and psychology is shallow or tacked on. Needless to say, I don't agree, but it doesn't bother me either.

    There's no point complaining I suppose, but it's good to get it out sometimes. My mother was in for something very serious, but they're both alive today, so I can't complain. Good thing nothing serious came off the car accident... I guess that's the only benefit of my family never having a car; no accidents.

    Ah, a lot of people go crazy for Ayumi. I like her too, but the series has so any awesome characters that she's sort of pushed to the side. I'll always love Elsie.

    A lot of people think it's pretentious. And there's the eternal complaints about Shinji being too whiny, which I think is completely missing the point of the series.

    Seems to be a lot of unfortunate happenings lately. No reason to feel guilty about it obviously, but I can imagine it's very depressing. I've had periods like that too, it doesn't feel good. I remember once when I was younger both of my parents were in the hospital at the same time.

    I'll try to think of something. That's a good choice for a rewatch, Kami Nomi is lovely and goes down easy.

    Yeah, I know roughly what to expect from it. Seen some artwork and whatnot. I'm watching Sailor Moon at the moment, albeit extremely slowly, and I expect they're somewhere in the same vein. (Although I've heard that Sailor Moon gets a little more serious later.) Evangelion's ending is questionable, I usually skip the last two episodes and watch End of Evangelion instead. Evangelion is my holy grail, but it's a very personal thing, and it's one of those shows I don't expect everyone to like, and can genuinely say I don't care if people hate. (And a lot of people do.)

    I'd pray if I were a praying man, but all I can do is hope for the best. Must be rough, hopefully you'll get some news about her soon.

    Thanks, you're very understanding.

    What I've seen has generally been good, but like I said, they're very few in number. I've seen and enjoyed Nanoha. At least the two first season, the third one was just alright. Madoka was great. Of course, it's to the mahou shoujo genre what Evangelion is to the mecha; the antithesis of all its genre traits.

    Wow, she was found in some bushes injured? That sounds horrible, I hope she's alright. It sounds like it could be traumatic, even if the injuries aren't lasting.

    I'm sure you're right about that, but it's hard to just let go of thought-patterns you're accustomed to.

    I hear ya, it looks like a lot of fun. I'm actually very inexperienced in the mahou shoujo genre, and eager to explore it, so it's a good choice indeed.

    Yes. I hate that thought. The fact that anyone you meet could be a psychotic killer or violent rapist is not a pleasant one. Can't let that sort of stuff get to you, or you'll end up in the ward, but it's scary stuff.

    You're right, I'm a bit hard on myself with that sort of stuff too, so if I think of something that I find just alright, I usually scrap it.
