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.

@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.

.EPISODE 9 OF HARUHI WAS EPIC!!!
FMP REFERENCE FTW!!!!

@JoJo 10.

Good episode, but I dislike the new main character. I also feel as if his voice actor simply doesn't suit him. Most likely because I have watched tons of anime in which he played a main character, but never ever was it an overly muscled teenager.

Watched 2 episodes of Acchi Kocchi... sure is cute but the cute seems a little too contrived.  Also wondering how they can keep this up for 13 episodes...

What do you dislike about him? If it's because he's not a gentleman like Jonathon, then... well I don't think I'll say it since that would spoil every arc after Phantom Blood. Well for me it's quite fitting since I like how he carried his voice as a muscle-bound teenage Ripple user. Like I said before, he seem to be able to carry different roles quite adequately, at least from whatever few experience I've had with him (mostly Ikkyu from SZS and Hidenori from Nichibros). But maybe you're right, since you have more experience watching anime with him as MC. It's still to early I think.

By going for a bit of comedy interspersed in between the high-school romance.

It will just get cuter and cuter and cuter until your head explodes. .

I don't know what I don't like about him. I just don't like him.
It's not just the fact that he acts like a total dick in comparison to his grandaddy, but I just don't like him that's all. Maybe it will change.

Do it.

Marthoning the endless 8 is like a life achievement, and it takes quite some willpower to pull it off without cheating*
I did it, and after I was done I honestly felt like I had achieved something.


*cheating meaning doing other stuff at the same time. The anime has to be your center of attention during the span of the 8 episodes.

Yeah, the last moments of V 3 have some....holes in it. They try to fix the holes with some wordplay and faulty explanation though.

But that means other shows that he was fond of that were average would get a 5. I have a hard time doing that to my own anime.

Recently it's been hitting me hard (though I've always known it to some degree) just how stifling, trapped, and utterly oppressed academia and the current education system is. There is little to no free thought or creativity, just convention and mindless thought and action based on primitive beliefs, romantic fervor, and taking current outrageously violent and obsolete socio-political-economic-cultural conditions for granted as intrinsic states of nature. This is not a good environment for learning or science. If you try to do or say anything a little too intelligent or actually be an honest and open person, you are in need of "advisement," ostracized, or marked a failure. No one gives a flying frak about actually educating anyone. Almost no one has the ability to see things in any way other than that in which they've been told to see them. Almost no one really cares about using their knowledge and technology to actually solve problems, or trying to make the world a better place for everyone on this planet. 

 

It sickens me that pretty much everyone both attending and working at schools thinks the point of it all is to "go to school for the sole purpose of getting a "job" making someone else rich, get married and buy a house and car(s), buy stuff you don't need to impress people you don't like meanwhile people are starving and being killed everyday, have zero freedom and be in constant debt, have and raise kids which will probably end up being equally as oblivious as you because you have no idea how to educate them, die. " And you call that "success?" Well I don't want success!

 

And honestly, a degree in music doesn't get you Schiit. What's the point? Especially since I'd just end up being several thousand dollars in debt afterwards? Working in the music scene/industry doesn't require any degrees anyway. While I probably would learn plenty of useful things at school, it's nothing I can't learn elsewhere.

 

tl;dr. Sorry for the spontaneous rant. All I can say is: Don't let school interfere with your education. Gonna continue a little Toradora now and then off to bed...

This man here speaks the truth. My professor already told me that you are just paying for the degree of the school you got and the connections that school may be able to get you.

Though, there is a higher risk of unemployment since your employer do want proof of how "smart" you are. Unless you wanna start a business and know what to do with it, I'd say stick to achieve a "successful" life

I know....its so sad. That is the whole point I want to get to GA Tech. The paper the diploma is printed on is worth a quarter of a million basically.

Yeah, the education system is stupid... but that's the way it works now.

 

I have a pretty good reason to go to college, that is, the privilege use their resources and facilities free of charge.

I don't give a damn about getting a degree or a job as long as I can have fun doing what I want to do.

I plan on doing post-grad studies just because I can keep using the college resources for my own projects. biggrin.gif

Yeah their facilities will be cool.

Who can graduate in 4 years nowadays? I'm looking at two more years minimum from now to get a bachelor's.

 

In any case, I've got another quarter ahead at least. Already payed for parts of it. After that...I've got some serious thinking to do. My parent's will probably flip out if I propose this idea to them, haha.

 

Oyasumi.

I'm very hesitant about the music major as well. The economy for it right now doesn't seem too good. As in a degree really does stuff. I think the advice that it is not what you have but who you know applies more to this major than any other.

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.
This Pocky is made in Japan. It has been bought in Japan and taken here by personal luggage in airplane.
One of them has two packs of 12, and the other (expensive looking) one has 4 packs of 6.
It says ココア仕上げ, or 'cocoa finish'.
It also has some scary looking string of kanji I can't decipher without the use of a radical dictionary (for which I am too lazy).
Here's a picture:

Reaction too... what?
This
Wth?
For real dude, what do you even think of us? I honestly have no idea why we would react like you implied to that statement.
In fact, I truly feel offended. So here's a big f* you from me to you.
I love all of you guys, and I consider all of you close friends. I don't know where you got it in your head to think otherwise, Panda. Did you forget the fact that I was truly shocked and got depressed when Graphidz left for a while half a year ago?
This.
Except Uchuu Kyoudai gets priority.

It was a joke. And I am very sorry :(

 

 

I love all of you guys! You make my terrible days just so much better.

 

Honestly, I don't know what state of depression I would be in right now otherwise.

I see. Hopefully it's just this episode, because the only way JoJo's awesomeness can go now is up, UP, UP! If not there's a lot of other characters to potentially get hooked on.

Also bowei, make haibunyan link my post to the OP lololol.
