You say as if I'm doing a talk show or something lol! Not that I don't appreciate it though
It's pretty much like a show and tell session. Only that thing I don't have to show

MOURETSU Space Diary: Entry №2

One of the reasons why I like Mouretsu Space Pirates back when it aired live was the meld of old technology aesthetic with sci-fi elements such as this pocket watch:

1080p image warning

I find it fascinating at how it does it; it's so much easier to have all the gadgets and data bolted or strapped to your forearm through some sort of wrist computer or at least a smartphone-esque communicator but they decided to make use of something that's rarely used even in our Real Life.

Another aspect that I like about the anime is the authenticity of the science behind, or at least from what this sci-fi lover and aviation engineer is perceiving. Sure there's some weird physics applied, like how the training space dingy can fly with a design like that (in the anime) or how the space shuttle can just do a vertical takeoff and fly straight away with a bulky, albeit still aerodynamically sound fuselage without a ventral thruster below it, but all in all they are kind of balanced by the somewhat authentic space physics.

1080p image warning

As anyone with a basic understanding of physics in space, there's no air resistance, so the basic science of aerodynamic will not apply in this case. They include thrusters such as shown above for the ships to manouver in space. This is also shown on spacecrafts much smaller than a ship that size. Even up to the docking umbilical bridges they use for boarding action is included with little decelerating thrusters. Small details and attention to authenticity like this is why I love shows that put the effort into it.

At this point in the series, around ep. 6 or so, the complexity, while not really deep in any sense, seem to ramp up a bit into a more serious tone. Sure there's still the SoL part of the show, but it's not too much of the focus for the series, and seem to focus on more how the characters develop in lieu of showing more of the universe of the series. This is another trap that I think they are smart enough to avoid, being that they are not focusing on cute girls doing cute pirating, but they take themselves serious enough to warrant believing in the universe. Sure it's not really true pirating in the sense that most expect, but they still do a decent enough job at bending around the in-show universe to make it convincing.

Also I like the yuri undertone of the series too, so any yuri seekers should also try a bit of the show too, at least for a few episodes, if you're wary to spend time on a 2-cour series (2 seasons' worth of episodes, usually numbering up to 20+ episodes). And since this is a mostly-female cast, it should provide ample fodder for more yuri goodness. But if you're expecting ecchi yuri action then you'd mostly be disappointed, at least up to this point. I don't foresee it becoming ecchi anytime soon too.

Progress: episode 8.

Haha, well I'm in a good mood, so idea just came out like breathing. Maybe just bring your T50RP and show a bit of pictures of more affordable gear, and go from there? And just expend a bit why you're going to this length for good audio production.
post #46834 of 111324
I thought of bringing you gear. But I just don't know what to talk about headphones. IMO, CIEMs have more non technical stuff on talk about.
Amy ideas what to talk about headphones? Not given from graph is allowed. Sound sign ok I think
post #46835 of 111324
I've ran out of ideas, so I guess you could wait for someone else to chime in. I'd also suggest that you take any advice from bowei with quadruple the caution and thought you'll give from others. wink.gif
post #46836 of 111324
Well, if I can't get enough ideas, CIEMs it is then
It's a short presentation. Like 5 minutes or so

Decided I'm done effing around with my MAL... I've already worked on this for over 10 hours....

Feel kinda bad for using part of other people's codes too, but I really don't feel like spending more time on this.....

Made some mochi, apple and banana fritters, and oliebollen (fried dough with raisins). This gon' be good.

LOL I hope nobody mind that I am posting my marathon diary here. It's better I think to record my thoughts incrementally and so fresh about it too. Even if somebody does mind it, I don't care LOL. I'll just continue posting.
This one will be spoiler-bound so just skip the whole post IMO if you care about the storyline.



MOURETSU Space Diary: Entry №3

The Serenity arc is chock full of sci-fi trope, especially when they finally found and went into the generation ship of the Serenity royal family lineage. A generation ship is itself a concept of space travel, aimed at sustaining generations of population inside its small nation-like interior when travelling from star system to star system in the absence of a faster-than-light travel method. Basically it's kind of like a space-travelling, one-way Noah's arc. Of course, directly connecting to the generation ship trope would be the gene banks of various organism such as livestock and humans. In this arc, they also show a few plausible ways of mobility in zero gravity condition in a near-vacuum atmosphere: using similar concept, I assume, to how the Dyson bladeless fans work.

Story-wise, this arc focuses on the political struggle of the Serenity royal lineage between two sisters: Gruier and Grunhilde. Without going too deep into it up to the point of telling it wholly here, I'll say that it's somewhat interesting for me, just because that it expands more about the in-show universe. I like lore like this and the narration of the lore at the start of each episode is something that I like since the beginning of the show's airing. In this arc, it's also shown how Marika develops from and aloof and air-headed high-school freshman into a capable captain. There's still some rough edges here and there, but with the help of her crew, she managed to overcome most problems. The progression feel a bit swift IMO, but it doesn't felt like it was rushed just to cram this whole arc in a 12-episode season.

The highlight of the arc is of course what they find in the generation ship itself: an artificial womb designed for the continuation of the Serenity lineage. That is to say that the Serenity lineage is custom-built, genetically, to be the perfect ruling family. But, I guess I'll just stop here for now.

Progress: Episode 12
