Did anyone see the locking spree that happened on Head-Fi? There were like 4 threads in Sound Science locked all at once and then that poor Gary with his DAC comparison.... that thread got really messy haha.
The SS section of HF is a serious mess.

I dropped teh new Last Exile really fast....
Enter the Geek Force forums for all yo sound science needs. tongue.gif

Gintama is sooooo loooong! Highly unlikely that I will tackle it anytime soon.

You people really need to remind me to watch Tatami Galaxy even though I don't like how it looks.
Kthxbai.

I'm not entirely convinced that this is happening because of their moe campaign.
At least I hope that people are not that stupid to get themselves lured into the army just because of some 2D girls :/

I just watched an episode of Hyouka.
Because it's glorious and I love it.

Quiet some time passed since I watched this anime the last time and I'm save to say that I've only recently stumbled upon another show that actually looks better.
Which would be Fate/Zero.
All the backgrounds in Hyouka are so so well made, I'm almost feeling like watching a movie instead of a normal series.
KyoAni really went above and beyond with the visuals.
Some shows I watched had a more interesting art style, but only Fate/Zero actually LOOKED better.

That's just one reason why it is my second favorite anime :)

Get yourself a coffee, take a walk outside or just do something to get your head clear and then write this sentence again :)

I know and have read a bit about the current war-hawks in Japan's regime. Basically what is happening is that a few war hawks(ok not a few, they are getting stronger and more well known every year) are using current unstable conflicts(North Korea, Senkaku, China Rising, Non-Japanese fishing in their area, Russia right above them etc)and regimes as a way to develop a 'real' military.

 

Anyway, I can not think of a worse niche of volunteers to get for a military that the war hawks want :D But seriously, I'd be pretty pissed....a bit if I were them. I mean, having a lot more applications is awesome. Especially for an ALL volunteer force like the JSDF. 

 

As of right now, the JSDF does not use/market itself to be a Defense force, but mainly a peace-keeping force. Most of its advertisement posters show the JSDF members helping in domestic issues. Basically, ads that, in America would feature the Coast Guard, Salvation Army, and some other green-eco groups. Couple that with its restrictive constitutional policy on what the JSDF is and what it can do, along with the current state of mind of the Japanese people towards what they believe the SDF should do, and their anti-war outlook. And I gota say. Sucks for them war-hawks in the government.

 

So yeah, MORE APPLICATIONS! :D Bring MOAR MOE TO THE WORLD my fellow comrades!

Which army doesn't? :/

I honestly don't know much about the JSDF, but if this is true what you are saying there than....MOAR MOE TO THE WORLD!
If people get their buttocks of their couches to build some dams or help grannys cross the street just because of some 2D girls, then I'm totally fine with it :P

Not which army doesn't, but most militaries with budgets exceeding, say 100billion a year or are of UNSC typically show military help. From what I understand, most JSDF ads show no weapons, and daisy's and all that fun flowery stuff.

 

True? You can look up the data. Yes, its all volunteer. Yes, its national constituion doesn't allow it to be a full 'military' (no military is allowed by constitution, only a minimal self defense force). Yes, most people in Japan like the SDF as a SDF and not as a military, yes, there are war hawks that are using current instability to make sdf more military like. 

 

Despite what most would think, Japan SDF, France, most EU countries, USA and what not don't actually contribute to U.N peacekeeping operations or forces. 

India

Pakistan

China

 

lead in U.N forces and operations world wide. I was blown away by this. I was expecting those 3 to be dead last...you know, considering that past U.N actions weren't so nice towards them.

 

India loves high tech weapons from Russia, they like Russia. They like cheap rockets and explosives from China, and Chinese money/trade

Pakistan loves all things Chinese. Their biggest (and basically only real) ally is China

 

So yeah, I was not expecting countries with such an alliance to lead in U.N operations, especially considering how badly the U.N was to them :/

True true. I guess this is the same place that pooped out the Sonico anime this season.

 

Will this finally replace touhou as the massively doujin-able thing??? :O

Well the doujin market is based on the love for a thing, or the market for a thing.

Right now kantai collection just has both... specially how it's somewhat more mainstream than a lot of other stuff like Idolm@ster web browser game equivalent. I guess.

 

Touhou is just too big, not sure about it replacing it.

Heck Touhou dominates a big chunk of Comiket and is also the star of Reitaisai so yeah.

While we can agree that Touhou has a bit more backbone to it, with stories (extremely weird sometimes... ever see their dialogues?) and specially music.

I actually started/trying the game. It's pretty fun but I'm absolutely terribad. Add me if you like: kalbee

 

Really don't like camping games though. Whenever I play any FPS and the match turns into a camp game, I just do wtv or essentially RQ. Not my type of stuff, I like running and shooting.

What's the right distance from the screen again?

Distance to equivalent sized screen till human eye's technical specs (for someone with perfect vision) to see pixels. A screen that big on FHD probably still can see pixels... but really, as long as it doesn't look absolutely fantastically terrible I don't see a problem.

 

Aside from the fact that huge screens are huge. I fear neck pains.

 

> 3 meters from television. Doesn't anime teach you this enough?

Kankore talk..

Congratulations!!!

Of course having focus would be better, as for what to train for each class, I think its better to check a wiki like this for final stats list if you aren't doing so. And also composition of team is depends on your ideal style and enemy you're fighting.. Basically Senkan+Kuubo is the simplest and easiest way unless enemy has submarines. Currently my main team is composed of like 3 (Destroyer+Keijun) + 2 (Kuubo) + 1 (Juujun or a Kongou type Senkan, because they are of fast speed type unlike all other Senkan).

 

Played WoT for a while (you know, I like GnP..), and found the system to be quite time consuming orz..

So there is a new episode?!

 

:D

And my absence from this thread (and HF) is completely due to playing kancolle like an idiot at times.

According to my cousin I already got a few really rare ships that most people spend months to get.

I guess, including Shimakaze, Hiryuu, Kumano

Meanwhile still never found Fubuki. I started with Inazuma and keep getting Miyuki... only to find out Inazuma rammed and sunk Miyuki during practice IRL xD

Lately just leveling up the ships.

 

Super time consuming :S

Don't know why but it hurts my eyes.
