    Leaving it in is obviously the least amount of work they could possibly do. I see that it was released in 2006 in America as well. Right in the middle of the anime boom's height. I don't know why a Japanese opening would scare off American customers (or why game companies think it would, as the case may be), but maybe I'm just living in my little anime bubble. I don't know.

    Sounds like a respectable career to me.

    I just don't know about Skyrim. I don't even know why I don't like it. Maybe I'll see if I can't borrow it one of these days. I'm sure one of my friends have it, they were talking about it a whole lot for a while. I'm noticing that I'm even starting to dislike games I used to like, such as Metal Gear. Gaming is looking mighty grim for me.

    Shin Sekai Yori is really good. Really good. It's incredibly heavy though. Those episodes just hit me like a brick. You have to get in the right mindset going in to them. I'll easily say it's the most mature title this season. It reminds me a lot of Noein, which is high praise. For Sherlock, that's actually the longest episode I've ever heard of. That's feature-length, literally. Not that strange when you think about it, TV shows are becoming more and more like movies overall. Which is great. You know what the only two shows I'm currently not up to date on are? Chuuni and SAO. Yeah. I don't know why either. That's the theme of this post. Me not knowing stuff.

    I haven't been to all that many farms myself, but I do love animals, so it's a nice opportunity. I've no idea if he altered it in any way, I sort of doubt it, but who knows what sort of technical sorceries he's begun indulging in since last I saw him, right? You seem to know a lot about photography though, that's really cool. Now I'll expect your videos to be Nolan-level cinematography. Anything less will be met with disappointment and scorn!

    Karma was the same song they used for the anime, right? I liked that opening a lot. They just removed the vocals without even replacing them with a dub? How lazy is that? Obviously I'm for keeping the original first and foremost, but just stripping the vocals and leaving it like that seems like a last-minute solution. I tried to look into a few of my favorite JRPGs, and I couldn't find any alternations. Koudelka, Shadow Hearts I and II, FFX. None of them had vocalized openings to begin with as far as I could tell. None of them are very "conventionally anime" in their aesthetic or sensibilities though, vocalized openings might be more common in games such as the Tales series, which is practically swimming in anime...ness.

    I'll start editing Wikipedia to my advantage full-time.

    That package is lame. In fact, you get disqualified from the program and can't collect any more cool-points if you purchase it. It's there to weed out the squares. Man, everyone knows art is objective. That's why everyone agrees about the end of Evangelion and stuff. I guess I'll just pretend that I played any new games the last 5-6 years and agree with your Skyrim joke. That's totally what it's like. You nailed it!

    They heard I didn't like the show and obviously they were afraid that would impact sales. I really am enjoying myself more with it now, and that's awesome. I wanted to like it, and now I can. In fact, a lot of shows rose noticeably in quality this week: Jormungand, Kamisama Kiss and Sukitte Ii na yo. Maybe I'm just in a really good mood? Nah. That can't be it. I'm never in a good mood. I have not seen the Sherlock series, but now that you mention it I remember an acquaintance recommending it strongly to me about a year back I believe. Confirmation is nice, sounds like that's one to look out for. Might be a nice live-action slot for the dry winter, there's literally nothing else I want to see until the next installments of Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.

    Glad you liked it, there were a lot of funny and cute animals there. My father actually snapped that one, I don't know much about cameras, but it was a pretty big one. I'll definitely pass the positive feedback along though, I'm sure he'll be glad to hear it.

    I don't actually think any of the JRPGs I've played had a vocalized opening, so I've dodged that bullet. The few I've played with dubbed voice acting I've actually had little to no problems with either. I don't know how that's possible, you'd think I'd be hard to please with all that anime-watching under my belt. Guess I've just been getting lucky.

    Damn them for beating me to the punch! I still like spoilophobia better though.

    You do lose some every time you disagree with me, that's why you were getting shortchanged! They're slippery bastards. But once you accumulate 1000 of them, you're allowed to carry a pimp cane and smack random people upside their heads and get away with it.

    I watched episode 9 of Psycho-Pass yesterday. Damn. Were they listening in on our conversation? They suddenly start giving me exactly what I wanted. More Beethoven, more focus on the villain, and some alone-time with, and development for, Akane. It's almost eerie. I'm not going to look for any sort of rational explanation for this, I'm just going to enjoy it.

    P.S. I was at a farm yesterday. Check out this crazy cow. It doesn't show that well in the picture, but its head was enormous. And that's actually a female, despite its horns.

    Well there is a lot going on currently over in Syria which does warrant some attention. Although honestly, I hope the U.S. doesn't go and get directly involved again if things start going bad, we need to stop acting like the world police. Space news has fallen out of interest of the main stream media once the shuttle program finally came to an end. Hmm I am just fine with the set of silly/immature jokes I currently have at my disposal thank you very much . Hmm, well as I know it Black Holes destroy / remove matter and White Holes create / insert matter, but what you said could be true as well.

    Yeah, that might have worked out to be a better amount of episodes, maybe even just one more to make it 13 would have been adequate as well. Yeah, at this point its pretty much done so they have to move forward as planned. Reading stuff on the forums though I was glad to read that all the characters actually still play a major part in the final two episodes, I was afraid that they might focus too much on Rikka and Yuuta, leaving everyone else to only play minor parts.

    I can see that. The main reason I watch anime is for the interesting stories, plots, and characters that really stand out, but even so I like for a change of pace every once in awhile. I enjoy a good comedy or parody anime to get me to laugh and sit back and enjoy the ride.

    The characters are just your typical moe genre girls for the most part, which let me make this clear, I have no problem with moe style girls, just mainly what some animes do with them. K-ON felt like a show that was trying to cater to all the possible factions of moe lovers more then it was trying to make a actually fun show. They are a very happy and fun loving bunch to watch, but they are not interesting at all besides that. The characters kind of remind me of the first time you see a clown, (lets assume we both love clowns, make this comparison easier xD) when they do the dance and squirt water on you with the fake flower, they can usually get you to laugh or at least smile. Now imagine that same clown follows you around for a month doing the same jokes throughout the day, it would probably get old pretty quickly. The genre itself is not bad, its just that K-ON is in my opinion a terrible example for it.

    I think the reason why people don't seem to realize it anymore is because U.S. citizens seem to be getting less and less trustworthy of those in power and because of it are getting further detached from them. Meaning we kind of see this sneaking in to get information okay because well, they are probably lying to us anyway so we will do what we have to to get the information we need. Most important documents have multiple digital and hard copies, can never be too safe right?

    It goes up to 200? Goodbye sleep indeed! That's pretty cool about the singer doing both the English and Japanese version of the song. I know I've seen that somewhere else, but I can't put my finger on it right now. I guess there Ef A Tale of Memories, but that's not entirely the same thing. I'm a little surprised there even is an English version, you'd think most people who would play blatantly anime-themed JRPGs wouldn't mind a Japanese opening.

    Probably true. I'm a little spoiler-phobic. (Spoilophobic?)

    That Micheal Jackson thing is so strange I still have trouble believing it. But hearing the music, it does lend credence to it, I have to admit. It works shockingly well. That's an old-school device. About as technologically advanced as the one I currently use though. At least mine is smaller now. Bringing the Sonic CD CD (wow, what a horrible phrase) everywhere gives you massive cool points in my book.

    Another whole week of waiting? That's not cool. Way not cool.

    I don't know how hard that is to achieve, but even just completing an entire JRPG is a task unto itself. Animated scenes like that are a nice bonus, especially for anime fans!

    You never know! Well, I never know. I think that I'm just not a fan of that urban vice and crime theme in a game setting. I like a lot of those kinds of movies, but there's something that doesn't click with me when you put it into a game.

    Awesome. That track is just insane. I love it as well. But that level can drive me nuts! I had forgotten about that soundtrack thing! I had it for the PC version way back when. Long, long before I had my own computer.

    Right. Beer is good for smart-making. In your brain. That's why it tastes so bad, don'tchu know? All healthy things taste bad.

    I was going to ask whether you got the part or not, but I ended up reading the latest blog post before replying and found out for myself. Too bad about that. There's always Monday! And music. And Vesperia.

    Yeah, they still have news on it but I feel that space news has not been so main stream for the media as it use to be. More dense then your mom Oooo! But seriously it is so weird to think about it, how something could possibly be that massive and just destroy matter. I like to think that the theory of white holes is true as well, because then it makes more sense but who knows.

    Hmm, I think I would have liked it less if the showed moved at a pace totally similar to this episode, besides the fact it wouldn't have made sense to do so since nothing really goes on early on except comedy and some minor development points which are still done in a comedic way. It gets some leeway to move more sporadically because it is approaching the climax, but I just felt like this episode crammed too much into too little. Not to say it was a terrible episode, just average compared to the other episodes before it. <- well I don't totally agree with this guys review, he hits home on a lot of my feelings about the show. I don't like judging a show before seeing it but based on the synopsis and who is making it, it leans toward a K-ONess style that I will probably avoid. I am open to most genre's as well, but the show has to be interesting which K-ON just wasn't to me.

    I think they kind of died down once all the 4chan twelve year olds started calling themselves members of anonymous. Its hard to keep a group together when there is no leader and no one knows each other. I mainly use the prepaid cards to buy stuff online, one exception is for my league of legends account. Well there is always a risk, it is still safe enough that I am willing to use it. Yeah, hard copies really aren't going to be lost or destroyed in one person's lifetime.

    I am not sure if that is true, I think it is possible right now for us to reach mars, but for anyone who goes it is a one way trip. I know there was a private company that was working on plans for a Mars colony about a year ago and was looking for people willing to make the one way trip, not sure if they ever made any moves forward with that. Also last week I guess NASA discovered the second biggest black hole known to man, it has 17 billions times the mass of our Sun ... that is heavy.

    As you said, we got a glimpse of things to come. This episode was a set-up as much as it was a tease. Compared to the other episodes this one felt really sporadic and changed tones every 4 minutes. (starting off with drama/romance friend talk, 4 min later comedy, 4 min later romance, 4 min later serious development, 4 min later comedy, 4 min later drama, 4 min later cliffhanger) Well we see some of this in earlier episodes, it doesn't happen no where near as much as it did in this episode and it brought down the whole experience for me. It felt rushed, like they needed to make a lot happen really fast and lacked pacing. Personally, I am not a big fan of the moe school life genre, Chuunibyou is a exception I found. Stuff like K-ON honestly is really bad so I have no interest in Tamako Market.

    Well Anonymous hasn't really done anything in awhile and even when they did stuff it wasn't that big of a deal usually. But I get what you mean, sensitive data should not be stored on a computer where people can get to it without you even knowing. Like when the Playstation Network was hacked a year or two ago and they stole like 100,00 people's credit card informations, that was a big deal. Having a back up hard copy is a pretty good idea usually.

    Ten hours already? (And that's when you wrote that comment, who knows what ungodly amounts of hours have been spent by now!) You're focused. Maybe even fanatical! Maybe it's just that damn good of a game. I prefer you being crazy though, that has more fun implications.

    Didn't watch the second one, I'm still sort of vary of even vague spoilers. You know, in case I end up liking the game! Don't give me that look. Okay, fine, I deserve it. I don't really have extensive experience with any of the games you cite, although I know enough about them to not be interested. Not saying they're bad of course, just not for me.

    Maybe I could find some more I liked if I bothered to search through the ocean of mediocrity out there. But as for now, I've no need. If I want to play Sonic, those 5 more than suffice. Got a nice Sonic collection game for PS2 which has all of them... except for Sonic CD. That's just cruel. It's probably my favorite. That and 2. But I could play through 2 in my sleep, it was the first, and for quite a while only, Genesis game. As you can imagine, I played that one a lot. Got it down to where I could get Super Sonic at the beginning of the Aquatic Ruin Zone. Good times. Now I can't beat those special stages at all though. Sonic 2 has the best music of the series easily as well. I had to turn some of it on right now in fact. How did they even make stuff like this and the Megaman X soundtracks back then with such limited technology? I don't even know. It's better than the vast majority of million dollar, ultra-high tech stuff that gets released today. That isn't just nostalgia speaking either. Most of the stuff I liked as a kid sucked, and I acknowledge that readily.

    Not that I'm some great prognosticator anyway, but I really don't have any idea what you'll think of the show. I'd be interested to hear if you ever do end up watching it.

    That's a good one too! If you ask me, Barney is doing a much better job keeping kids away from alcohol than any PSA ever could. Then again, I'm sure Homer is drawing in a few, so that evens it out.

    That's how you get by in life, man. Take something away from every experience, especially your mistakes. But that's a tired truism at this point.

    Excellent. Dare I say: Man: 1, Machine 0? No Skynet for us in the near future.

    Yeah, a lot of modern technology is based on information that NASA has found well exploring space. Its weird to try and comprehend just how massive the universe actually is, I think walking across my city is a long distance, so trying to imagine the size of the whole universe is hard.

    Yeah, KyoAni sticks with what they know for the most part that is for sure. Dekomori was great in it as always but I really don't have a overall opinion on this episode yet, this episode seems to be setting up for the ending run so depending on how the ending goes will change my opinion on this episode. The comic content of the episode was entertaining as always, that is something that has remained fairly consistent in this series. The drama as I said, I have no opinion till its sorta out, its like we saw the opening to a play, not going to judge till I have seen the whole act.

    They store basically all their information on the internet, the assumption society has is that they internet is here to stay and is basically the future of all information and data storage/sharing (it probably is unless something more efficient comes out which I can't even imagine what could be more efficient). It sounds nice and as someone who loves books I would like to agree, but I can't. Books can be destroyed by fire,water,time just like computers so they really don't serve any better purpose in long term storage. I will agree though, reading a book is a nice change of pace from sitting in front of a computer and there is a nice feel to flipping through the pages of a book for sure.
