Not sure how much you have kept up with things outside the thread, but this thing happened and IIRC you were a fan (*coughcough* and it didn't get any response when I first posted it here ;_;).

Last week I went to an anime convention again. It was awesome, never had three days pass by that quickly, I recon.

Deadlylover now has reason to be proud too, I guess. I went to a Japanese whisky tasting there, they had some pretty expensive bottles too. I'm not lying when I say that that had to be the best alcoholic beverage I ever tasted. Now I feel like drinking the stuff too, but I don't have any. :S

By the way, the stuff I liked the most (by a good margin) was a 1998 Nikka Coffey pure malt.





Just two more weeks and the summer vacation starts. Holy balls, can't even believe it. I'm so loaded with work that the time passes amazingly fast -- no time to think about anything. Haven't been watching any anime the past two months or so either. I imagine that spring season has almost ended, but I'm still at around ep 4 of most shows :P


Also, anything up? I can't imagine an entire month going by without anything notable happening.

I want one :(

Well it seems you recalled wrong, as I can't seem to recall saying anything of the sort. To be frank, I don't really care. tongue.gif

It could be yours for about the price of an AKG K701.
Definitely worth it too, sadly.

Now that I think about it, it may just be that you mentioned that some Dutch newspaper has their own Calvin & Hobbes strips being made by someone else that's not Bill Watterson, not that you are a fan. Oh well...

If you like Gainax's crazy style (like they did with FLCL) then you'll probably like this. So far it's better than Kill la Kill IMO. Similar kind of feel though.
Ok, thanks!

I'm not TOO into these kinda shows though sadly
Hmm, really? I see at least a few common themes between TTGL and code geass though.

Too quiet in here.
Get a job so you can get some headphone money!

Dunno, I kinda preferred Kill la Kill to Gurren Lagann.  Granted they both get kinda silly awesome in the last few episodes.   Of course Trigger is better than anything Gainax has coughed up since Gurren Lagann.
All the gained people left after Gurren Lagann and formed trigger though, so of course it's not gonna be as good!

Unless that was more than a month ago then you didn't miss that.

Not much really happens anymore since we're getting bombarded w/ more work as we all grow older.
That was way more than a month ago. And lmao, true Dat!!

Can't remember ever saying that either, but I might have, since it's indeed true.

Sorry to disappoint you.

Just checked. That was almost 2 years ago. Or more precisely in November 2012, so about a year and a half ago. :-P

No wonder I could mess up things a bit...

[EDIT]
And it was when we were talking about Yotsuba&, since authors of both share the fact that they don't want any merch or other forms of cashing in basing on the success of their work.

Well I was going to (for the amount of work you do it's a really good paying job) but then I forgot to fill out the registration forms, much less turn them in so I'm just sitting at home trying to learn to code (tbh I really don't like it) while my sister is working that job (since we were both supposed to sign up for it).

 

My bad. Don't pay too much attention to here anymore (although not many of us are).

My summer's gonna be pretty boring too, well most of it anyway. I'll be on vacation for a total of three weeks, but other than that I need an activity to fill up the time. I was thinking of self studying differential geometry, and I could learn some Japanese. But it's probably mostly going to be filled with sleeping, gaming and watching anime.

Let me clarify.  Gainax has put out crap since Gurren Lagann.  Medaka Box could have been better from what I can understand, Hanamaru Kindergarten... uhhh... wat, C3-Club would have been good for KyoAni but fell short of Gainax crazy, and finally we have this Mahou Shoujo Taisen.  

 

In essence... my love for Kill la Kill aside.  Shaft is master studio.  

 

EDIT: Mastery aside... I'm planning on watching the gatari series soon... any order to watch those in?

Fakku became a publisher, signed a deal with Wanimagazine. o_O

And yes, that includes physical copies.
