Alright, those guys and gals who watch anime in this lounge, listen the fuck up!

You should totally check out Gurren Lagann, this anime is fucking rad. Very seldom I force myself to watch anime, because I never was a fan, but after watching Death Note and now this, I'm considering to take up more animes. So yeah. Check it out and you won't regret it.

I've spent 1 month, 2 weeks, 5 days, 19 hours, and 14 minutes of my life watching Anime... Give or take.
If Death Note and Gurren Lagann were not in there somewhere, I don't think I could rightly call myself an otaku.

Hint:
They're in there.
Yes, I'm aware I have no life.

"weeaboo" is a western term for western people who are obsessed with anime and japan
"otaku" is a japanese term for anybody who is obsessed with anything, but particularly anime/manga/games

christ i look like the biggest weeaboo for writing that

Weeaboo carries a somewhat insulting definition here in the west, as it's more or less used as you here people use the word "Wigger". But instead portrays someone that tries their hardest to be japanese instead of black.

Otaku carries negative connotations over in Japan mostly due to the "Otaku Murders", which gave anime/manga/gaming otaku a very bad reputation (Calling someone in Japan an Otaku would be considered a major insult)... A lot like how games and music is blamed here for school killings and such, except it's a fair bit more extreme in Japan in regards to "Otaku".. Although recently the word has been losing a little bit of it's kick, and isn't nearly as negative a term as it used to be.

In the west though, people use the term proudly as a badge portraying their enjoyment of Anime/Manga/Games, and doesn't carry anywhere near the amount of negative meaning.

I got yo back midi.

Can you recommend me anything else then? I was considering Code Geass, but the dub on my language seems to be kinda crappy and the length concerns me - it seems to be a very long anime.

I actually dropped Code Geass before I even finished the first episode... something about that one just rubbed me the wrong way... I've heard it's good... guess it just wasn't for me.

My first and biggest suggestion though would be Steins;Gate. Freaking awesome series. Time travel and the Butterfly Effect thereafter is the central theme... and it's pulled off brilliantly. Very powerful show.

You should try Code Geass again sometime. I watched a few episodes, but the dub on my language, like I said, sounded terrible. It's a pretty cool story though, which I'll try to revisit sometime later.

Speaking of the series you mentioned, what's the length?

Can't make any promises... But I have gone back and watched stuff I had originally dropped before... so I can't say I flat out won't ever give it another chance.

And Steins;Gate is 24 episodes of pure awesomeness. Starts out very light humored and full of comedy, but around the half way point it starts to turn serious. Suspense, tears, twists, laughs... Show has it all, and does all of them really well.

Which is amazing considering the anime was an adaptation of an eroge... Derp... But seriously, don't let that scare you away, Steins;Gate is by far one of the best animes you will ever watch... I've watched around 180 different series'... and Steins;Gate is by far my favorite.

I like Japan, but I really cant stand most animes, does that make me some freak?

I do LIKE some animes like Ghost In The Shell (Yoko Kanno inspires me) and Afro Samurai (Samuel L Jackson makes everything awesome) but I cant say the same about most animes.

Lots of work

I'll just leave this little rant here because I feel like venting. Sorry guys.

So yeah, ever since I started sixth form, daily I get up to 12 hours of Maths homework due the next day and often have to stay up till midnight (sometimes up to 4:00 AM) at the very least to finish it all in time. That's not mentioning tests, homework from other subjects, my piano teacher expecting me to practise piano for at least one hour a day and annual exams coming up. I know Maths is a demanding subject but I never expected it to be enough to deprive me of sleep and nearly all of my free time.

Summer won't be fun either. The Maths teacher has given us 22 past papers to work out for summer. Each past paper has 10 questions. Each question takes roughly four A4 pages of work, give or take. So yeah I've basically got 880 pages of Maths work to do. Not only that but I also have a massive programming project which will take thousands and thousands of lines of code, an extremely retarded but demanding Systems of Knowledge project, lots of music theory homework and any other homework the other teachers plan on giving me. FML.

Alright, back to doing Maths homework.

Move to the states. With the kind of crazy ass work and knowledge you've gotten from Malta, you could basically own up everyone here and pretty much take over the world.

My brother had a similar experience doing engineering. He had to write up a design spec from a CPU and apperently it was 3 thousand pages long, but then with that he got to design computer chips for homing missles which is pretty badass.

I've been working about 16 hours a day for the last 3 weeks so I know the feeling though. Aren't you getting paid for going to school there?

An Otaku in the West is someone who finds immense pleasure in learning about Japan, their culture and particularly in viewing manga and anime. To be a true otaku one must also find pleasure in Japanese animated pornography, which is referred to in the West as, "hentai" (this word meaning 'pervert' in Japanese). They are basically nerds or geeks.

Then there are weeaboos... These people aren't actually the same thing as otaku. They're usually obnoxious and most are teenage girls. These people... Want to be Japanese. Some say that they think they were Japanese in their previous life, believe in the Shinto religion, or that they know how to speak Japanese when they only know a few phrases. They're delusionary and wicked, pretty much a currupted idiot who wants to be an otaku, but really isn't. Therefore, otaku don't enjoy being associated with these people.

You pulled this from Fox News or something didn't you? I'm a total otaku. Anyone that's seen my profile can tell you that. But I don't enjoy Hentai. By no means does being an otaku (Which in western culture refers to a fandom for anime/manga/gaming) require that you enjoy animated porn.

My birthday is June 1st, guys. :)

Happy early birthday.

Just finished watching the final part of Hatfields & McCoys on the History channel. Deep stuff... They did a good job reenacting everything that happened. I was hooked for three nights straight O_O
