I think Kyon actually amplifies the awesomeness of the characters around him. I think what makes the series brilliant is it's basically what you'd get if you stuck a regular joe into your average anime. I mean, the show is pretty tropey, but it's how Kyon shatters the 4th wall by remarking upon how absurd everything is that elevates it

You're making me want to skip sleep and watch more. Terrible idea in the scheme of things, so I won't. Responsibilities are lame sometimes.

 

 

Before I head out for the night - I'm wanting to jump on a portable DAC/Amp. The FiiO E17 is most appealing so far. Are there any others that I should consider in the same price range ($100-150ish)?

Also, I hope you're watching in broadcast order cause the actual chronological order just sucks IMO. Makes the last Ep super anticlimactic

Yep, I sort all of my shows in Plex by TVDB broadcast order.

Why would a couple choose one of you folks to get married instead of going through the normal procedure?
Are you allowed to marry off gay couples (that depends on the state, right?)
And why did you join this...eh....church? Is holding marriages really that much fun? Tax benefits?

Oh and the last time I checked, the US really did not seem all that secular to me.

You sure German doesn't need any more FREEEDUUM?

 

Well there are a few. Some of them being principle, relationship, price, freedom.

 

Principle: The idea that marriage isn't a set idea that modern laws only allow exceptions to clergymen to make

Relationship: You want your brother/best friend to be your wedding officiant.

Price: Prices for most officiants range from $100-$500 depending on number of rehersals, how fancy etc. 

Freedom: Similar to principle but one in having the liberty of choice and in enjoying rights. And using those rights. 

 

Seem is the biggest word. I do want the U.S to be MORE secular as there are still lots of religion here. But despite what the arm chair revolutionaries online like to say, and what I rant about, and what media shows. The U.S functions very secularly. Most of its legal laws, procedures, and processes are secular with strict seperations. It's the ones that fell through the gap thanks to history and other political events that make the loudest noises.

Once you go Mac, you never go back. I would have gotten the Air 13" if it had an at least 1080p screen.

 

Yep, I was about to say "Mass Effect" while browsing through posts to quote, but it's been mentioned already.

My reaction when 12 episode anime's plot starts to get interesting at the end of the season

 

 

I also know this feel...it happens when I'm using my phone's WiFi tethering. The multi-quote button disappears from the bottom right corner.

Yeah HF.....making me sad

I don't know if you've noticed. But close to all seasonal favorites top MAL for a bit...and then slowly receed into its normalized place. The ranking isn't set in stone at all and is based on popularity. this happens all the time.

Have you heard of Kotetsu no Daibouken? It only got three episodes, then got cancelled. It's a much more extreme case of cutting the story short.

I remember when Shingeki no Kyojin was ranked #9 when only a few episodes were out. I guess MAL ratings are more aligned to a massive generalized Western audience. You'll find that pretty much all the top anime are all shounen action comedies; rarely will you find any ecchi slice of life anywhere near the top 100.

S5's fingerprint sensor is a joke. It works about 60% of the time. Even redoing it all, trying various scanning techniques etc.

This manga has to be the number two on the MAL manga list for a reason. The whole premise doesn't sound like something a lot of hype-train people would vote up.
I kind of have more faith in the Top Manga list than in the anime list.

 

 

Try HF's search function. I have been recommending this LN for the past few months
:D
 
I'm only 3/4 through Volume 1 and I can tell you one thing. 
 
It's topping MAL for a reason. 
 
 
It's not fantastic fantastic good. But imagine really hardcore book literature......LN'd into Japanese anime style stuff. 
 
If you have read Futrure Diary (Mirai Nikki). Then the back feel is similar. The difference being that this is much more mature (not in a sexual sense).
 
The below isn't a plot or story spoiler, but it could make it less enjoyable to read as you will not have it

Spoiler in the sense of immersion: (Click to show)
The series draws a lot of false hits often as a way to blend the world of surreal manga that has stories and content that at best are only medium serious and it uses it as satire for when it reveals just how much it really is making fun of your pre-defined idea. 

The best way to animate this in word sense are to imagine that you are watching Mahouka or some anime doing its usual anime 'oooo ahhh' ecchi stuff, some serious action stuff. And then everything freezes. Someone walks onto the screen. Smiles. And says 'You didn't really think that this is 'real' now did you?'. And tears the world down. 
 
 

 

Anyway. It's a very mature series and deals a lot with themes that are interesting.

 

I'm not sure you will enjoy it. It's very thick content. But it's hard to acknowledge the LN series as one of the modern forefronts of LN/Manga/Anime taking on thick deep literature in its home medium.

I've not heard of that anime, and by the looks of it (funny, I'm basing my opinion on MAL. Precisely what I just said was a terrible idea.), I'm not missing anything.

 

That's kind of to be expected though, right? MAL is an English site, after all. Most westerners grew up with shounen's, so naturally the majority of the population is going to gravitate towards them. MAL is biased accordingly. 

Yep, Android all the way!! Google could learn a thing or two from custom ROM devs.

 

Well, the three episodes that comprises the whole series only just set the scene, then BAM! The end.

 

Yep. They don't know what they're missing out on.

Now that you mention it, his narration was what made me enjoy Haruhi most of all. WHICH HYPE TRAIN DO I BOARD? Both. I choose both.

Kyon's narration in the very first episode makes me suspect that Haruhi isn't actually "god".

Not really. The event was still awesome. And although they didn't win, Dendi from Navi and Iceiceice from DK were fan favourites, they spent hours signing autographs and taking pictures. This is probably also the only year this Allstars line-up of DK will play in TI, 2 of them are retiring after this. Would have loved to get a group photo with them.

It is indeed. They really slow shipping aside, the GOs themselves are very capable and I actually sold most of my Amps and DACs(everything in my profile is practically gone) as I rarely use them after I got the GO450s. I'd suggest getting one from the for-sale forums here, less wait, more music.
