@Uchuu Kyoudai 36
Why are you doing this to me? Why are you sketching extremely realistic tragic life stories behind main characters? Stop making me feel depressed.

I can't stop watching you either, since your amazingness is worth the melancholy.

Agree with Jgray. What is it? Is it very important that you won't even crop it?

One does not crop album covers. Though I'm considering it.
Hmm....

Still a bit mad though.

I also like TJ better than her solo works. That playful and jazzy style of TJ is simply amazing.
It's sad they broke up indeed, but it's not the end of the world either.

Cropped.

I feel sad that the other band members are not on the picture, but now it's more recognizable at least.

That's what all the IB teachers tell you son, but in truth it will just be the first half a year. The IB syllabus is larger than most other school systems', so it will undoubtedly cover some university theory. However, the advantage will only last for about half a year.
I agree with you that IB is a much better preparation for university than other school systems (like my local one, for example), but it's not some holy grail. It also does not have a heavier workload than university as some people claim. It's just that most people doing IB don't know how to plan ahead correctly, while in university most people DO learn that. It just seems as if IB has a high workload to most people, but it really is not that bad at all as long as you keep breathing and just do the frigging work you're supposed to.
Engineering expects much more personal initiative and working hours than natural sciences and math do. For some the personal initiative part is very difficult, while for others the difficulty of the subject matter itself is what makes the natural sciences and math too difficult for some.
I don't have to do jack sh*t at home, but I do have to pay very good attention at lectures and make good notes.

What reaction were you expecting...?

 

Haha, certainly the IB does not have a huge work load at all!
I can still spend hours everyday watching anime and playing VN,

and the only reason I've had to pull allnighters on homework is because I started the work past midnight. biggrin.gif

 

The difference is that the things I've had to do in uni is in my field of interest and I'd do those thing even if I'm not told to.

It doesn't feel like "hard work" even if I do them for hours and hours.

I learned this when I took several summer courses in a uni, including electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science courses.

The final project I've had to do in the CS course took me 20-something hours (because my group members didn't do jack) but it was FUN!

As for the Engg courses, they were a bit of a joke for me... mainly because my knowledge in the area is well beyond the course content. (and they're 1st year level courses...)

100023145 a special number?

Oh yeah, I get something like 30 credits, but TBH I'm in no rush to graduate.

Gonna burn in my AD700 (I know some of you believe/not believe in burn in, but I do, so don't waste your time bothered about it) before I try listening again

Well, last message for this whole week. Gonna be busy preparing for assignments, midterm, etc.

Yeah I know. That's why when my kid bro is going to whatever PC Fair there will be, I'll ask for him to get me another one, provided that he's not duped. Actually I might not tbh...

Good luck on your allwhatevers!
Best OP/ED post is done. Here's a sneak peak:

This season is coming to a close. Not the best one I could think of, but not the worst too. But this is not a post about what I think is the best of the season (of the anime I watch/follow, and I’m not going to judge the ones I don’t watch, despite the urge to do it), it’s about the music.

To me, the OP and ED of an anime is almost as important as the main parts of an anime; I’d say that it’s at least 30% as important as an engaging plot or an interesting background of an anime. I’ll also do this is two sections: purely by sound, where I enjoy listening to it; and by animation, where I even keep watching the OP/ED and not leave the anime in the background while I check out Head-Fi for the umpteenth time that minute. It goes to say that this is all IMO.

Before I go on though, I will list what I’m watching from this season, to give you some expectations:

  • Girls und Panzer
  • JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (2012)
  • Jormungand: Perfect Order
  • Magi
  • Psycho-Pass
  • Robotics;Notes
  • Shinsekai yori

OP/ED by music.
This is kind of hard for me to choose actually, since from among the 7 shows that I’m truly watching, most of them have gripping songs to match the feel of the show, but also does it best without the frequent context of the source. Despite that, I tried, and the best OP are from ...
Now for ED, this is quite a different beast. For starters, JJBA’s ED is a cut of an old song by Yes called Roundabout. Thanks to it, I now have another awesome band to hunt its music for. But for this post, I can’t consider it since I’m focusing more on how it’s born from the anime.

So for the best ED song goes to ...
OP/ED by animation.
A different beast altogether, this is where I’ll just sit staring at the song in utter admiration. So for the best OP animation goes to...
This is a tosser between two great ED IMO. After mulling about this way too much in my head, I just have to give it to ...

Sorry, I want views too, as inconsequential as it might be to me. tongue.gif

Everyone should change their avatars to that of Shiina Ringo / Tokyo Jihen.
Although they have broken up for almost a year now, so it's a bit late.

I don't not like it.  Just very little exposure to it.  Bowei once tried to get me into it (bless his little Panda heart), but alas I was too busy at the time to expand my leisure activity schedule.

Wait what, 1 year? FFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't care about artists, so that's why I never knew

@jgray
just get it yourself on the safe side. Just in case he doesn't accidentally buys a fake one, with nuts and bolts to go with

Thanks!

Dammit need to get out now! Stop being so entertaining!!!

Last note:
I've fallen in love with the mobile version of head-fi.
It runs like an app BUT in a browser!
It can keep the multi-quote to tje next page!
The top part changes to head-fi logo when you are scrolled to the top most page and changes to the thread topic if you scroll down, in a browser!

And on episode 8 of Haruhi. Really enjoyong it!
Until Friday then!
Although they have broken up for almost a year now, so it's a bit late.

All of that, and easier accessability than the way we are doing. Crunchyroll is a great place to start, since it's streaming and all. I think there's a section of anime in Netflix and Hulu too, and PSN Plus if you have it. All those are just from the top of my head, and I don't even live in the USA. Wish I do though, since that way I can support legal translation, however bad sometimes they are.
