Why is it in almost every manga or anime there is a time skip? Couldn't the writers think of something to happen?


Everyone has a pervert in them. Mine is just on the outside.

As much as that's a pretty decent question we could probably discuss, I'm too busy laughing at how awesome your name is.

Terrible quality because I foolishly deleted Lovers.

Because no other medium ever uses time skip, and because a story has to tell, to detail, everything that happens. Basic narratology.

What you just said sounds like a reason against timeskips.

Sarcasm also an alien concept? What I meant is, that every work does that; there's no point in telling all events in linear fashion.

After watching the first three episodes of Akagi, I'm really impressed. He seems to be in control of EVERYTHING.

Oh my god, was that a mistake!? No, Akagi doesn't make mistakes, yo.

It's pretty stylish, well written and one of the most unique shows there is.

So yeah, it'd be a great watch.

A must-read article about the One Piece 403 leak and the Funi/Toei response.

I saw a guy walking around the grocery store with a Lucky Star shirt on.

Second gig is good so far. I'll probably be getting the last two volumes from Netflix today. If not, then they will almost definitely be here tomorrow. I'm only in the middle of the fourth disc, though. I think I want to just keep watching anime series for a while. I usually rent movies most of the time and then start a series on occasion, but I might just keep going through more shows.

I just finished 2nd Gig. At the end of the last episode, I just said to myself "she fucking killed him!"

SPOILER

I'm referring to Gohda.

So, I'll probably watch Solid State Society today. I'm pretty sure it's on the DVR down here. I'm not sure which series to watch next. There are a couple I may "acquire" and there are some sitting on my Netflix queue.

That one looks interesting to me. I almost started watching it a while ago, but something distracted me. dunno what.

Meta-level hikikomoriness; not even posting on online forums out of fear of social events?

The series won't let you down. Only the ending though since it ends and leaves you wanting more, so much more.

man, i've not seen that image in ages.

and matt, you'll have to contend with me. Haman is my waifu.

FMA: Brotherhood is rather nice for a rehash. it's moving along at a good pace. now to wait out until the next chapter of Berserk is released.

and i read a few pages back what you said Kouga. yes, i have a massive hard on for gundam. always have, always will. speaking of, anyone else seen pictures of the full scale gundam they built in Odaiba, Japan?

Probably the best Gundam-related thing ever done. It's a shame that it'll be dismantled on August.

indeed. if i had the money i'd go over there JUST to see it in person. hopefully they are just moving and not dismantling it for good. it would be quite the shame if they were to dismantle it and sell it for scrap.

So, am I the only person in the world who thinks the dub for GTO is not so good? Dagon from Mogulus insists that I'm the only person ever who thinks so and who thinks that Steve Blum was a poor choice for Onizuka, and that Blum isn't great in everything.

Darker Than Black is pretty good. The soundtrack is good, too.
