I like to go fast. I also do the Plightcast every now and then.
PS: It's strange to me that you guys capitalize my name, considering I don't.

And now to make my escape!
I just saw an ad for this:
FROM THE MASTERMINDS THAT BROUGHT YOU IKKI TOUSEN
They’re even more samey than UVERworld.
I liked their Soul Eater jams though.
What, the hat? But it looks so baller!
Shounen characters are revealing themselves in this very thread! Dreams really can come true…
Oh, you’re Luffy? What a twist!
They did at least two OPs for Code Geass, I know that much.
I thought was Luffy’s crew.
I was wondering the same thing. Man you’d think they would have a box set out by now.
That’s only because there isn’t a hate button for the polls.
Now that’s just grasping at straws, buddy.
Air Gear and Murder Princess come to mind.
How does one learn to jump that high?
You would probably like Back-On, then.
Uverworld sounds the same to me with almost every song they do. But I don’t really think their music is bad, and OP3 had good visuals.
OP4 is just okay. I really liked the first three, especially the first one. All three of them fit with the mood of the show at the time they’re being shown really well.
Depends on the kit. Master Grades and beyond for example, definitely. High Grades, not always.
But a kit at the same price as a figure for the same thing would probably be more detailed, at least from a sculpting and gimmick perspective. Out of the box a figure will beat a kit every time in painting and detailing however because you’re supposed to do the extra legwork on kits yourself in that area. Though I suppose you could detail figures too if you really wanted to.
I agree about Saya. They have her grow and develop over the course of the series, but it often doesn’t feel like it because she remains ineffective against most of her adversaries and still still struggles to make decisive calls. She is almost inarguably a better fighter and more mature character at the end then she is at the beginning, but has just as much trouble fighting Amshel as she did fighting Karl way back in the beginning.
Netflix is how I watched it.
You got double-busted zombie. They took down the video AND your gif.
Oh, and I really liked 3/4 of the OPs.
I have kind of a fascination with 20th century movies, I think because I just find that whole past century very interesting from a historical perspective. My mom used to leave TCM (and soaps) on all day long so we’d end up watching some together.
Oh, I don’t mind them when they’re explicitly musicals to begin with.
I don’t know what this means. Do you want it to be a stage play or something?
Finally finished Blood+ last night. Great show. It’s very uncommon for me to take up 50+ episode shows that aren’t Gundam-related, but I’m glad I invested the time in this one. Unlike a lot of anime of or surpassing that length it felt like one long saga rather than a collection of arcs. From beginning to end, each episode builds directly on top of the previous one. Characters mature and develop, but they do so incrementally and over a realistic amount of time. The relationship between Saya and Haji was explored and fleshed out wonderfully, and ultimately became the highlight of the show for me. Characters who seemed tangential at first (like Kai and Riku, and even some of Diva’s chevaliers) become not only core to the plot in a meaningful way but their roles in the story morph over time. With the sole exception of Mao, who I’ll get to in a moment.
Some complaints. I don’t think it needed to be 50 episodes. It is that long because it’s paced a littler slower than I think it needed to be. There are things that take up entire episodes that didn’t need to. The first half especially is a bit meandering. I also don’t think they did a good job justifying and fleshing out Saya’s devotion to her mission. I can’t go too deep into that one because of spoilers, but even while recognizing Kai’s [successful] attempts at other avenues, Saya still believes almost till the very end that ultimately her solution is the only one that can work.
Mao was an awkward character from beginning to end. First she’s this lovestruck girl who steals hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash just to follow Kai’s trail; to me that didn’t fit with her personality, and her relationship with Kai was never portrayed to be that deep. Eventually, even she realizes how silly this is. Then she becomes a tagalong gal who only occasionally has something meaningful to contribute to the show and will never win the Kai bowl for reasons that were ambiguous to me.
Finally, I don’t understand why Moses had to die.
Overall though, great show.
Sound of Music, that is my jam. We watched that in 6th grade, it was awesome.
That you don’t like musicals?
Considering Kira and Lacus regularly top character polls to this day and SEED did very well financially, I assume by this you mean ‘great.’
well, less fun, since you don’t get to assemble them yourself.
That depends on your definition of fun. Kits aren’t as durable as figures generally, so all you can expect to do with them after assembly is pose them. Figures are built for play, so if that’s your thing they would actually be the more ‘fun’ option.
