Is it just me, or does anyone else feel that the quality of anime is going down these days? Winter 2014 season I still haven't found more than a handful of anything really worth watching (only watching Strike the Blood, Nagi no Asukara, Noragami, Engaged to the Unidentified)

Quality is down, and profits are slowly rising again back to 2006 levels.

 

2006 was the year with the most original anime EVER launched and had about 3X more anime in the entire year airing than right now due to profits and amazing increase of the anime market. 2007 and 2008 slowed down a bit and then Murican stock market and BOOM. 

 

In the comming years since then, a few companies went under etc

 

I read his explanation

 

His quote and sentiment is taken out of context.

 

The real sentiment he was trying to drive is the one we talk about a lot. Where the 'paying' market is currently creating the paradox of a problem. Not that Otaku's and their piss poor stastes are wrong, but that they do pose some...hardships

I am pretty sure that the winter season is normally quite 'light' in comparison to the spring and summer seasons. On that note, I am enjoying quite a few shows from this season (Space Dandy, Noragami, Saki, Engaged, and more) as well as several from last season (Tokyo Ravens (highly recommended), Kill la Kill, Log Horizon, Strike the Blood, and more). In the end, I'm not really disappointed yet. I think I was more disappointed in most of the single cour shows from last season that ended up being letdowns (Kyoukai no Kanata and Coppelion).

Just got my Mac running

 

I'm a bit unsatisfied with the speed test

 

I've been reading that some Mac's have issues utilizing the Samsung EVO 840 properly due to its controller.

 

I'm getting only 200MB/s by 250MB/s (read) as opposed to the 400MB/s I could

 

I'll be trying out Windows installation tmmrw to see if that will spice things up

Does the Macbook Pro have a SATA 3.0 6GBPS connection?

My USB 3.0 hard drive can get speeds up to 5 Gb/s. I highly doubt that I'll ever get close to that number.

I assume you have never watched hentai on a public screening at a convention? ;-) Many of those can be watched for their comedy factor, whether it means what happens in it, or just the quality.

That reminds me, on one of the conventions there was no hentai night planned, so some people just brought their laptops, sat in a corner of DDR/Stepmania room and... started to watch hentai. Before you know it, the corner was filled with people. :-D
Oh and next day the hentai people took over the room and made a more normal screening early in the morning, for a few hours.

Nope, I haven't. I haven't been to a convention yet either though. I'll probably do that at Sakura-con.

There are soooo many hentai you can watch just for the comedy factor alone. What I meant in the above statement was for "good" H if you know what I mean. ;)

 

LOL, brilliant!

So I had a conversation over on another forum about IEMs vs. Headphones... I thought I'd post my concise pro/con list and see if anyone else had anything to add to it:

 

Pros:
- Isolation: Some IEMs isolate better than earplugs. Because of this, sometimes it's easier to hear micro details if there's any background noise in your envrionment.

- Portability: No over the ear or on-ear headphones will ever be as small and portable as IEMs

- Listen while you sleep? I personally don't do this but if you get IEMs that fit flush into your ear you can theoretically use them to listen to music while sleeping.

Cons:
- Harder to get good tonal balance: It seems a good majority of IEMs on the market have really harsh and painful treble or no treble at all, and bass that's either nonexistent or overbearing. Finding a good balance in between is more difficult than full size headphones and much harder than with speakers for the price.

- Maintenance: You have to clean the earwax off the tips and oil off the bodies every so often. It could also be said these aren't as sanitary and can be somewhat awkward to share with other depending on how much of a germaphobe you are.

- Lower Build Quality?: Some would argue that IEMs are easier to break, whether it be running them over or the cable losing connection somewhere between the connector and the earpiece itself. I mostly believe this, except it's also a matter of how well you treat your gear, and generally IEMs get a bit more abuse than your average over the ear full size headphone

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For all these reasons, some people never use IEMs because they don't sound as good or they're afraid they'll break, or people are forced to use them because they listen on the go and can't carry around a set of full size cans, or they are in noisy environments where they won't get the most out of full size cans. In the end, the choice is up to you.

IEMs 4 life!

 


I'm browsing through the adult section of MangaGamer right now...some of the titles here are beyond amazing xD

 

post #106260 of 149605
@mech Wouldn't say that point to be due to lower build quality but more of the size and form of the 2 items in question. As you said, IEMs tend to get abused more, as such, even a well built pair would wear down pretty fast if not taken care of.
