Nope. I'm happy with my current speed biggrin.gif

 

What I'm NOT happy with is my external HDDs. USB 2.0 is a real beaoch.

(read is 2x faster because I'm running RAID 1 for data redundancy. PROTECT ALL TEH ANIMU!! tongue.gif)

Hehe already done molester man (on chapter 21.5, actually). I'm more interested in reading stuff that explores the complexity of the relationships between the characters.

 

I've been following Maigo Scans, so I've been reading O/A since the beginning. I'll check out the other ones. I haven't been this interested in reading since Grade 10.

Going to take back all the negative things I've said about Robotics;Notes. Something about this show that I find undeniably entertaining. Mainly Frau I'm sure. 

 

Finally after 20 episodes I can forgive it for the 18 episodes of only foreshadowing and no reveals.

Lol, I like your rhyming... That would be atominator99.

Niceu! I haven't gotten a full ride yet, so still I carry on in applying for colleges...

I think I had an account there at one point... It probably got deleted for being inactive though :(

LOL, it wasn't that bad of a movie! Then again, it wasn't great..

NEW 911!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Lol

Hmm, go watch some top gear... See how you like that :D

fI'm sure a couple people on here can recommend specific episodes. I'm too lazy to do so right now...

I never said anything about a full ride....i no get full ride

Well...complexity of relationships ehh?
 
Nozoki Ana
Nana to Kaoru
Velvet Kiss
 
explore...a different side of a relationship.
 
 
I's and White Album are the typical ones. Suzuka is also palpable

@mbamg, from my list, Onani master kurosawa is the same with molester man, only with more NSFW in the earlier chapters. Nothing explicit mind you, but it's something that can make someone looking over your shoulder to raise their eyebrow and question whether to report you in or not.
Psycho Pass 20 (Click to show)
I have to say Sibyl (the council of brains) is kind of stupid for leaving the granary guarded just like that using the old school way and not using cymatic scanners. Look at what happens now. You might say "hurr Makishima is a variable durr". Well, "they" (Sibyl, council of brains) predicted, nay, are certain that variables will arise and they know this could happen. And yet they in their hubris chose to ignore it and hope that whoever is that variable will join Sibyl and control Japan. Sure, I guess in all those 20-ish years (Ginoza's dad, the old Enfoncer is a detective before SIbyl and Ginoza is old enough by that time to remember how his dad broke down and ruin their family. And Ginoza I would assume is in his late 20s if not already in his 30s) all those variables do accept Sibyl's offer to become brains in jars, but even then... they should've had at least Plan D or something.

Also Akane-chan is so damn kakkoi this week.

He already read both of them if I remember correctly.

 

The show of course has to be flawed...if it wasn't, we wouldnt have an interesting show. 

 

pp 20! (Click to show)

 

 

In terms of ideologies and their ideals, I am still with the Sibyl System, but of course, if everything was perfect, we wouldnt have the show

 

Akane chan? She is...but her logic fails her at times. But of course, that is just her, a character who doesn't need logic. She goes by her heart which itself is admirable. Characters have to be like her of course. If everyone realized what they hell they were saying or talking about, we wouldn't be able to enjoy anything.

 

When Sibyl shut her up about her ideals. I was like -damn right!-

PP 20 cont (Click to show)
In a sense, that stupidity by Sibyl shows that they are, in the end, still human and still prone to irrational and obvious-in-hindsight errors. Besides, Akane is being more human than most other female characters in a looooong time IMO.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I believe in the ideals of the Sibyl System. But to make a show a show. You need to make it faulty.

 

They of course are making those errors. In reality, calculating the risk of exposing their system to Akane and Makishima would have been done well in advance with REAL security measures and what not.

 

Faults are needed to make a show interesting. I just wish that I can love the Sibyl System a bit more but sadly, the faults also make the show interesting

 

I think that while I can rant on all day about how ___ shouldn't have happened in a more truer realization of this world because of ____ and ____ but it all relates back to how if that was true. We wouldn't have an anime to watch at all.

I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm implying that's the genius of the show. Make Sibyl too perfect and Gen-chan will have do a Deus Ex Machina. Which I hate a lot. This, on the other hand, is perfect.

I wasn't either. I wanted to talk about the show and was just doing a rant out to space on why I like it, but also don't like how Sibyl is protrayed a bit..incorrectly.

 

I'm ok with Deus Ex Machina type of endings or happenings. The ones that built up to one and artfully work it in are fine with me. But when they add some ex nihilo crap to it and super man comes flying out of nowhere, then I have a problem

The thing is, Psycho pass hasn't been building up itself to allow Deus Ex Machina, and honestly if Gen-chan were to pull one, I will be very mad. I mean, his previous original work, Madoka, pulled one but it makes sense, kind of. This one... doesn't. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I mean the hyperoats thing is done slightly weird (lol hidden BBS discussing about how to topple Sibyl) but in the end, it's not done in away that they are spoonfeeding the audience directly, but in a more subtle way.

Deus ex machina in Madoka? Sure, why not. In Gurren Lagann (not his work I know, but that has so many in it). The f do I care since it's pretty over the top and it doesn't take itself hypercerial. In Symphogear? Yeah I'm mad but then it's more because it's a wasted potential of original IP. I'm trying to think of other deus ex machina that I hate, but since I usually will ragequit and try my hard to forget it, I can't lol.

What do yo like about Sibyl btw, and what were you hoping it to be? Because like I said a while back with Gen the Butcher's style, once he showed what he's doing, his move is kind of straight-forward until he pulls another WTF that makes sense somehow.

Like in Saya no Uta.
