Why do you even bother keeping someone away from SAO? I kept my friend away to save her some time from raging because I knew from what I've watched that it wouldn't be in her tastes, not just because of a massive hate(which I am not lacking btw) for the thing. What's your reason?

They are all good but it never reaches S1 levels of good. The material for S2 (which is technically S...4?) is better but it's compressed to fuck, while Nise is stretched out.

At least Nise features best character.

Generally organised religion isn't that good. Spirituality is one thing but regions seem to mainly be a way of controlling people. That said, people can find a ways to be religious and not be controlled by the close minded mindset lots of religious groups seem to encourage.

It's the taste that matters more than presentation and you can garnish pretty much anything.

In my experience green onions can garnish anything, although for curry you might want to use parsley instead. Or possibly basil.

Why do you hate SAO so much?

Kirito, Asuna, and Yui are quite boring, but aside from being over-hyped and having lame villains after season 1, I can't think of anything that would warrant such stalwart derision.

I mean, you're on a forum about a eroge, so you can't tell me that what bothers you is that multiple girls are interested in the MC.

Because it's popular, and the hipster inside each of us says popular=bad.

It's enjoyable, the high production value sure helps, but the problem is most villains and the main character are, as you said, boring. So you can't really get invested in the story about characters you do not care about.
Well, at least I can't, but I doubt I am the only one.

I giggle at how bad it is. Maybe it's because I rarely watch things on a whim and read reviews ect before I watch stuff so most of the stuff I've watched is pretty good an I still haven't seen loads of things that I should've watched but haven't.

It sounds like you mostly just watch what's been cherry picked for you at this point.

The story makes sense unto itself, I've read and watched it a few times. It can be pretty silly at times and has it's glaring flaws, but seriously, SAO is genuinely above average when it comes to anime.

And DEENight isn't bad, really it isn't. It's not a great adaptation, but it's still enjoyable by itself.
Music is great, animation (while inconsistent) had moments where it truly shined and the finale was amazing.

What's the point in watching anime that isn't very good?

The point is that you're letting someone else decide what is and what isn't good for you to watch, based on some metric of good that they have.

Basically, you're letting your taste be decided by popular opinion

That's basically the point.

Basically, you should at least try a great variety of things, and decide what you like best based on which ones you actually like rather than based on which ones get popular praise.

Else nobody would like niche media in general

francobull3
January 3rd, 2015, 08:55 PM
Exactly! So a damning review of something doesn't automatically make something bad. Think about God Hand, the PS2 game. IGN gave it an INCREDIBLY low score, but the game is hella fun! So reviews aren't something you should really base your judgement on.

I'm watching noragami on the recommendation of this girl and yes it's good but not great (I haven't seen a single review) and I would rather spend my time an anime that is guaranteed to be good because a large number of people thought it so. I went through a period where I didn't watch any anime and when I did find something by myself it wasn't very good (claymore was meh) but I watched knk on a whim and I remembered anime was awesome but I was at a loss of what to watch next. I watched a to 25 anime you should watch video and watched a lot of stuff on there that I really enjoyed. (higurashi,cowboy bebop, eva,ghost in the shell) I really liked monster and I can't even remember why I watched that probably because it was said to be similar to death note. I got bakemonogatari on blu ray for free and I looked into it a bit then watched the actual series and I really enjoyed it.

Man, that is some of the worst advice ever if he's actually in the shitter instead of attention whoring. Dude's sad because of some reason that's making it impossible to have fun. "Doing something fun" when he can't have fun just makes him feel shittier, since there is the discord with his surface rationale that's saying he's supposed to be having fun and with the underlying issues making it not so. Figure out the cause of the depression, find help to attack the source or mend the wound if necessary, and then move on. The first two in this sequence will require a lot of fucking trying, but that's obvious, since it's producing urges opposite of default impulses of survival.

why would I need to? I single spill, a quick chug...

Painful, probably slow, but at least it'll end.

hehehe.

I fell asleep last night after almost cutting myself and asking for a reason not to kill myself. The next day I get permission to work with toxins and a long talk about death not being a sad thing, how it can be preferable if life isn't worth going through anymore.

i don't even know.

It's not my country's that's a problem Viz, it's life.

Purposely? ALmost. Accidentally? Yes.

Still, death is becoming less and less scary the more I think about it.

I don't know.

Gonna go eat some pancakes.

you should probably look for help beyond internet porn game forums

all people can do here is pat you on your back or getting annoyed at what can be perceived as attention whoring, its not really a place for any kind of substantial talk

ur 17 though, a lot of people feel like hammered shit at your age. i cant judge your situation (again, internet porn forum, not professional help center) but especially if youre younger shit tends to look a lot more hopeless than it actually is in hindsight, so dont do anything dumb

Meh
January 7th, 2015, 04:33 AM
yeah. I'm not looking for help really, just a place to vent.

them pancakes was nice.

maybe you should though

not get institutionalized or shit but maybe talk to a councilor, doctor, a hotline, anything with somebody who has an idea what they are doing

but yeah meh is obviously at the point where he needs help if hes having suicidal thoughts

not much internet can do since when youre in that mindset youll tend to rationalize all of the negative

On another note we got our fencing jackets today. I had to swap with a classmate because she ordered a size to large for her(XL) so I was told to swap(mine was L). Then the time came to put on the jackets and I found the XL to small for me. So I had to wait for them to get a larger size. So I missed the 5 minutes we had to practice with each other. So I didn't get to hit anyone.

I was disappointed.

Way better than before if you ask me.

I thankfully never did. I mean I had depressive episodes and shit but you gotta look really hard to find a human that didn't have those.

I knew a few people well that did though. It's not a good idea. People will get really awkward around you even if you stopped a long time ago, because even if you do it cleanly with a razor and not with a nail clipping scissor or a screw driver (yes people did that shit) you're going to have those scars for a long, long time.

Not like you can talk anybody out of it with rational arguments though. It's not rational behavior.

Well, in a country where depression is automatically considered as a sign of attention whoring because it doesn't really care about psychiatric conditions until they start behaving extremely erratic, talking to nerds in a porn forum is better because the other option is either pill-pushing or nothing at all.

He actually doesn't know. He got two warnings for one post and then just got banned and he's trying to find the reason but not coming up with anything.

the ban reason fyi is "Flaming, insulting language, and continuing improper behavior after being specifically warned to stop. THIS IS YOUR FIRST STRIKE"

I don't really understand it either as I looked through his last posts and I don't think they're that bad. So I went to ask him myself, after looking through his post history, in case some of his posts got deleted because they were that bad but he doesn't really know much else either except for when he got the warning.
