    This is also a great thing to do if you have roommates.

    Whenever my roommates in college had a big test the next day, they would stay up all night strung out on Adderall and clean the apartment from top to bottom as their study breaks. It was like having a live-in pair of maids.

    New Nasu entry, talks about this a bit.

    Also we can add Guilty Gear Xrd onto the list of videogames that he's been playing.

    Pretty much what we've been saying, it's been quite a while since things were occult mystery themed like during old Type-Moon era.

    (also it took me years to realize that the shorthand 型月 is pronounced "Type-Moon", ahahaha)

    Interested in seeing Sanda's take on this. I've never read his stuff, if we don't count Red Dragon which wasn't really writing.

    今回のダークホースは間違いなく「エルメロイの事件簿」です。
    lol Nasu forgot the II. I wonder if he's agreeing with Christemo.

That's only what I think, but if you try making reading a habit, even more if you're dissatisfied with the current situation, then I'm fairly certain you'll be able to end up appreciating it, as naive as it can seem.
    There are also some additional factors that aren't necessarily present since you're most likely interested about the content of these books (and DDD really is a thing) so maybe you can use your curiosity to go through the medium issue at first, then finally grow accustomed to it.
    No, it really doesn't work like that with me, unfortunately. Like, I'm a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings, and have watched each of the movies like 10 times, but when I tried reading the first of the three books after having watched the first movie once, it bored me out of my mind, and it was a constant struggle to get through. I forced myself through the whole thing anyway, just so my friends couldn't say I didn't give it a chance/stick it out etc, but it's not something I have done a lot, and it's not something I'd want to do again. I've never read the other two books (or The Hobbit for that matter). I read Silmarillion though, since there (understandably) is no movie, and I wanted to know about all that stuff.

    Also, although I don't like reading books and novels, I have actually read a bunch of famous books, since I (paradoxically enough) took several literature courses as part of my English degree. Everything from Victorian literature like Jane Eyre, to fantasy novels like Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass), to teenage novels like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, to modernist literature like all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's most famous works, which I wrote my final paper on.

    "The world is just another word for the things you value around you, right? That's something I've had since I was born. If you tell me to rule such a world, I already rule it."

    This doesn't prove anything about your particular ability to read books since you just described the natural human reaction to trying to read Tolkien's writing.

    The Hobbit's better than The Lord of the Rings anyway.

    Man getting an English degree when you hate books sounds like a life choice on par with becoming a doctor with hemophobia

    Wish I could read and enjoy light novels...Apocrypha, Strange Fake, and now this...I'm missing out on all the good stuff (I'm not counting FZ and KnK, since their anime adaptations are more than good enough for me, and I don't care about Fire Girl. I can't even remember what DDD is anymore, so I guess I don't care about that one either. )...But due to a nonexistent imagination, and maybe a lack of patience, I don't know, I can't enjoy anything that mostly consists only of text. I'll fairly quickly either get super tired and almost fall asleep, or I'll get so frustrated, bored, and impatient that I'll feel like punching something. Visual novels are fine since they have sprites, QG's, backgrounds and other art, as well as things like music, effects, and, oftentimes, voices and other things. Manga is also fine because it's drawings with text. Text and only text though, I can't handle...It either does nothing for me, or it drives me crazy...I hate that I was made this way though...

    Too many illiterates these times. *sighs*

    Oh hey...Waver finally gets a purple haired lady.

    His planned meeting with amnesaic Loli Assassin was canceled in Fate/Zero, good to see a spiritual successor of sorts.
