Like I'm sure I could get used to recognizing and reproducing it if I worked hard to get more acclimated at it, but dear lord I look at a band score and cry half the time.



Can you do Bulgarian rhythm? It's 2+2+3. I find it easy. I'm just good with rhythms for some reason.

Sight read? ..................hell no lol. If I worked on it, sure, I could get it down pretty sharply. I'm not a very intuitive learner and I don't pick up things instantly but I can get the down pretty pretty good when I am given some time to put it in my head. That's when I tend to find things easy. I don't struggle too much after day one of receiving music from instructors. Part of that is just not being lazy darthsmile.gif

I threw them at my teammate once and he thought I threw semen. lol

And if you want to know how I am at swimming, I don't like to praise myself but I'm actually pretty good for my age. I'm on the small side. I place 2nd or 3rd when it comes to breaststroke (awkward name and no I don't swim fast because of the name). Some people on the team leave a bit and then come back which is why I'm in 2nd or 3rd. One person is on a high school swim team which pushes me up to 2nd. Once she comes back, I'll be back in 3rd.

What kind of time are you achieving? I can't do any thing over 100m well, other than 200m IM which is always needed for some reason...

Of course I lose quality like hell but I don't do it for quality reasons tongue.gif

That is what I used to do too.
In my opinion, Kanon Original has the worst graphics ever, and the face of a main character and himself are driving me insane, lol.

My artwork was submitted, but it will cost me extra $100 for full color printing.

Sigh, Uni is getting really busy so I'll be a bit inactive in this thread.

 

In other news, I really like Haiyore! Nyarlko-san.

post #4581 of 137487

Ahh, I hate my life right now! I want to go to uni so I can live alone!! Unfortunately that won't be happening for another few years.

High School > Uni for anime fans. You'll know once you get there. You have so much less free time if you want good grades.

post #4583 of 137487

Oh, I couldn't reduce my top 2011 list to 10 without feeling bad for leaving off some so I extended it to my top 20. With a brief not for each of them.

 

 

 

20. Fractale - God dammit this could of been much better given time to flesh it out

 

19. Idolm@ster - When it wasn't being all stupid with drama, it was a genuinely fun show

 

18. Denpa Onna - This one took me by surprise and was pretty awesome, but eventually it evened out in quality and the freshness left.

 

17. Mayo Chiki - Another show that was surprisingly good for how terrible it could of been and I'm glad I saw who directed it, giving me incentive to watch.

 

16. Persona 4 - Put this on hold a bit early but it was pretty good when I did watch it.

 

15. Hanasaku Iroha - An anime that grasps you with both art and it's characters and I very much appreciated it's style.

 

14. Gundam Age - I am a bit blinded by gundam fandom but I do enjoy the new Age and it's ambition the span of time it is rumored to cover.

 

13. The World God Only Knows II - A favorite of mine from 2010, I was quite pleased with the second season and want a third pretty badly :)

 

12. Kimi ni Todoke 2nd Season - I thought they could of made this a bit better but regardless, KNT was still great rom com and the characters, once again, brought it to the table.

 

11. Ikoku Meiro no Croisee - The SoL show I think went highly unnoticed. Gotta love the art direction and the way Ikoku was handled overall.

 

 

 

Now the top 10.

 

 

10. Ano Hana - Now all the angst hating people out there will probably get a kick out of this reaching my top 10 but I don't care, I genuinely had love for the show. Sure, some of the drama was just a bit too over the top for me even and even the angst was too strong at times but when all was said and done, I think the show was handled correctly overall. Maybe I could complain about the general plot a bit but I think when it came to it, the emotion hit hard and all the secondary parts of the anime(animation, music, etc.) were actually really great.

 

9. Guilty Crown - *sigh* What could of been...oh well, Guilty Crown was still a top 10 anime for me this year. I've stated my opinions about it enough in this topic but I'll just keep it brief and say despite all the serious faults it has, I still enjoyed it so much and can say I will recommend it because despite what people say, a lot of them still loved watching GC. And isn't that what it's about most?

 

8. Fate/Zero - From animation to story, Fate/Zero is just a rock solid anime. I can't say I have any real qualms with anything it did. The second season is coming along as well and started off with a bang. This looks like a series that while I may not first remember in the future, I'll look back on and remember that it was a great experience to watch.

 

7. Bakuman 2 - I am a huge Bakuman fan and the 2nd season was a great add on to the series for me. It was just as good...no, it was better than the first and with the third coming out in october, the series will only get stronger.

 

6. Hourou Musuko - Hourou Musuko is an anime that I think could be something that will take awhile for us fans to see again. Something that seriously deals with an issue that is controversial and out there like gender identity without using it as an excuse to chalk up the dough and hook in the Otakus. Beautiful visuals and wonderful directing are also prevalent here and I can't say enough about the story in and of itself. Another anime that shouldn't be looked over from 2011

 

5. Mawaru Penguindrum - I have not had the opportunity to finish this anime up, but I can say it is one of the shining stars of 2011 as far as how unique it was. You talk about refreshing? Mawaru is right in the encyclopedia next to that word and if you didn't get a chance to check it out, you are truly missing a good one. One of the quirkiest things out there today while still maintaining depth with layers to be uncovered as well as hidden gems within itself that will make you think about references the creator has thrown in. Mawaru is truly one of 2012's best.

 

4. Madoka - I am not going to lie, I am not a big fan of this series but regardless of that, it deserves the respect for doing something out there and completely from out of nowhere. One of the better original anime to come out recently, Madoka takes an old genre and flips it like it never has been done before with an experience that will be remembered for years to come.

 

3. Nichijou - Oh Nichijou, you really brought a lot to the table when it comes to comedy and anime. Seldom do I find one funny and almost never stylish. You manage to take both of those and put them into overdrive and not just for 12 episodes, you managed for 26. After a bit of Lukewarm reception from the OVA, this series stomped onto the anime field and has spawned a strong fanbase and it personally became one of my favorite comedy anime ever.

 

2. Usagi Drop - Well, a lot can be said about many a show in the top 10 but only Usagi Drop and my number 1 came close to a 10/10 rating from me. The SoL genre is easy to establish but hard to execute to it's fullest potential in my opinion and Usagi Drop damn near did that. It's one fault is that length wise, it is way too light and it needed more time to sprawl out and finish itself. Hopefully a second season can get dropped on us but for now, I find that Usagi Drop took the SoL genre and put out some of the highest degree of quality to the aspects that best make it up.

 

1. Chihayafuru - From start to finish, Chihayafuru was great. Pacing, Directing, and the plot were all just great. It was hard to believe how good it was at some points because usually shows that are dealing with two fronts like it is get lost in which way to go that would properly fit within itself. Not getting lost in it's own world trying to satisfy both sides, Chihayafuru just did what was best for the anime and focus on what it was actually about and not try to shoo in other minor stuff. Chihayafuru is probably one of...no, it IS one of the best sports anime out there and I find it to be the best anime of 2011.

Eh, I find if you just stick to currently airing stuff and don't go nuts on the amount of shows you watch, then you can deal. Otherwise you're asking for LOTS of trouble...

Um.. never used Audacity, but I used to mess with songs using logic pro.

How much do they cost total?

LOL, I still find VLC the best player out there...

Every other player has worse renders and not to mention its the ONLY player that can natively play 10-bit encodes.
And for me, its the only player that can play 1080P vids smoothly without using 100% CPU, other players will either have a messed up image or audio not in sync or both.

@B-Dawk20 Your top list is interesting. I never try to put my anime in a top list, but only give them some titles. Like right now without thinking and analyzing my impressions my top (year is not taken into account) will be Angel Beats!(Epic Anime in 13 Episodes), Code Geass (Epic Anime), and Clannad (Epic Dramatic Anime).
You should defenitely watch Madoka! Dog Days is quite okay, but it's truly like a good fairytale for kids with a good end.

@b1o2r3i4s5 $625 - the Miracle. $250-350 - reshelling and custom artwork. Quite a big amount of money, but I put a trigger on the Miracle right now because I can afford it.

I am fine with Media Classic Player + MadVR
