Short and quick:
Should I first watch Chaos;Head or Guilty Crown? :P

I'm slow and lazy with my anime watching. I want to watch the more exciting one first.

I haven't watched it but I've heard that Chaos;Head is a very bad adaptation which is evident even to non VN players (in contrast to Steins;Gate) but I am watching Guilty Crown and I can say that it's only worth watching for it's impressive production values and little else. It is exciting if you turn your brain off a bit but it hasn't finished airing so it'll be a while if you still want to watch Chaos;Head. I'd go with Chaos;Head first.

I actually just watched Chaos;Head a week ago and will definitely agree completely with the above that it is a bad adaptation and this is clear to someone who has not played the VN. There's some pretty huge plot points left totally unexplained and development for many of the characters is seriously rushed. (The stories for some of the girls were so poorly resolved that I think they'd have been better off not even including them at all. I also ended up really hating the female lead and I get the feeling that I wasn't supposed to because there was more to her story that they either didn't tell or got wrong.)

I know nothing about Guilty Crown but I don't think Chaos;Head should be a high priority.

Thanks for the responses Haak and RWBladewing.

I'm gonna watch Guilty Crown, then if I can get my hands on the VN for Chaos;Head (unlikely), I'll watch the anime first, and then the VN. But if not, I might just not watch it at all.

I'm sad that it's not close to par with Steins;Gate, which anime review sites also show a significant rating difference.

USPS does end-destination delivery for UPS, so I don't imagine that they'd mind UPS packaging. Even if it weren't UPS packing, as far as I know they don't care about the packaging type - just make sure that there are no bar codes or address labels from previous shipments.

If you're really worried about it and it's possible for you to do so, you could always swing by your post office or stop your mailman/woman and ask them. Otherwise, I'd just go ahead and ship it that way.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

You should have said so, then. You only mentioned JRPGs, not VNs.

Even so those are all all anticipated titles which I have already known. Japan releases much more than that I believe.

Alright I've got another question regarding Japanese.

Again a question from Muv-Luv.

There's a scene during the Yokohama base incident where Tskuyomi orders her subordinates to ready their swords and to charge.

She says something along the lines of "A-Shotai, war cry!! Charge!"

But the word she used for charge has me puzzled. It sounded like "tsuzuke", would this be right? I thought she should have said something like "kougeki kaishi" or just "ike!"

I've seen some drawings of human characters with huge heads and proportionally very small bodies. What is that called and why do I hate it without knowing what it really is?

I remember hearing once that it has its roots in the concept of the sensory homunculus.

That's all I know...

Yeah it sounds like chibi.

Before we actually decide on "chibi" as the closest term, if the faces have exaggerated features of real people, then the term is "caricature." Of course, caricature is a general case of exaggerating body features in an object. However, in this case, I'm assuming it'd be a "Super Deformation" or a specific style of caricature.

BTW, all links are to Wikipedia.
