Dunno really. Looking back, there are things I do miss, on the other hand, there are things I don't miss. The place did become more fun since all the more toxic people left to that other board, then again most of those people didn't post in the General Conversation section regardless, and General Conversation there and all its subforums were basically completely dead lol. Even the GD thread was kind of dead. The last new topic that was in the serious discussion/debate section was a topic I made iirc, and it was the only new topic that was made that year, everything else was like topics from 2015.

Yes, the ending to Mordor was pretty disappointing considering the buildup to it.

2TB, 2B, coincidence? But knowing how computers advance,Next computer I get might be 2TBs when its time to upgrade,lol.

lol. 2B aka Two Butt. I do like the creator of Nier's responses to the questions about 2B and such.:p  The future is robot waifus.

Yeah, like the game made you do a bunch of stuff to "prepare" for the final battle/epic climax to give you the impression something good was going to happen iirc. But then it just ended without a good falling action or conclusion given the "boss fight" was kinda just your converted orc captains vs 5 other orc captains and then a short battle with sauron and then that qte to finish everything. 

What I like is how the director said "he just really likes girls a lot" when asked why 2B wears high heels. Best response ever.

Speaking of 2Butts. There's even an entire subreddit called 2Booty, lol.

Indeed. Especially since certain games released recently have kind of surpassed that style by making that style upgraded. Spec Ops the Line almost didn't have multiplayer or trophies but top execs demanded it. Multiplayer isn't a big thing on my list for games though, besides maybe certain games. I have gradually enjoyed it over the years though. Doesn't mean I get to do it much since friends own different systems and games most of the time.

My parents had some, but we also had a variety of other things through auctions and yardsales. 

That's sometimes the case with Fallout or Mass Effect partners where your ally can often just kill people for you(especially Garrus with the right upgrades.). I also am fine with escort missions if the one being escorted has lots of health or is a smart AI.

That's a pretty cool idea. Kind of like a strategy game, but with 64 players. That would be quite the insane but fun game. I do like having AI partners since I enjoy modes but with internet being paid moreso and just being a solo kind of person, and training purposes, AI opponents would be welcome, especially if they can be the level of human players like some gaes are.

It seems like it. I'm not really impressed by cat people too much, but fox and dog people are a different story...lol. I would like to see more variety of the animal peoples.

The only game I play multiplayer now is Overwatch since I'm diamond ranked in that game. And I only play competitive with friends since solo queing is such a mess in that game.

I see, that's pretty cool :p

I remember running Garrus in every Mass Effect 2 mission just for that purpose of letting him take out everyone. "Firing a high impact shot" is thoroughly ingrained into my head. :p

Yeah I know right? It'd be a great strategy game. Plus a game with intelligent AI squadmates you can command would probably be closer to a real "tactical" shooter. I could imagine having smart AI to command would let us see more actual teamwork stuff done that resemble the things those game trailers like to pretend their games are about. It'd practically be a brand new refreshing genre of it's own since I don't think anyone has really actually tried that before. If they did, I certainly haven't heard of it (I can't possibly be the only person to have brainstormed this idea).

But then the top execs who decide what gets made and what doesn't are like, "nah let's just make another 3rd person cover based shooter with stealth elements or another WWII shooter on a US based perspective again lol". 

People seem hyped for WWII COD again. Dunno what you think, but I don't really trust Sledgehammer to make a good Call of Duty anyways. They'll probably find a way to mess up everything, and I don't mean just with those annoying supply drop microtransactions they put in every COD game after Advanced Warfare and beyond. 

In FFXIV 80% of the population is basically cat girls. I found the faces of the cat girls in that game to be kind of weird (hard to explain, maybe they were too wide + looked too much like actual cats). So I ended up just playing as a human character.

I do miss it at times since it was a place I posted a lot when I drifted from IGN for a bit and when I was pretty into Mario Kart Wii, and fics and other stuff. That stuff was a pretty great experience, even if there were some less than happy times.

I feel like I did nearly everything on the site at some point. Fics, graphics, reviews, debate, games,art,racing in tournaments, being a member and higher up in a clan, writing guides, etc.Even some minor things like having the sig that records visitors and having 100-200k, and showing up on some people's Mario Kart videos. Plus,I was the last person in the "Last person to post thread wins." Huzzah! But I hope a lot of that existed pretty well and helped a lot of people. I'm glad to meet the friends that I did. But currently you were the only two I consistently talked to in the later years of the site, and now you're here.

Unrelated but I saw MRBean had a 16 or 17 hour 250+ race tournament for MKWii hacked tracks. I don't know if I'd be able to do that, but I do remember the time we all played Smash Bros Brawl forever.

Yes, I did enjoy the buildup and the battle was nice. First half finale was pretty great, facing human enemies. Second half finale was kind of soured by the QTE thing.Hopefully they fix that in the second game.

But yeah,I really like Platinum's characters. I also like Nier's creator's attitude about it. When he was asked about 2B's high heels, he went "I just like girls.". To be fair, Raiden wears high heels...come to think of it most of Platinum's protagonists seem to wear combat heels, even the guys. Razz. Also I realize now, that I typed that up without reading that you said the exact same thing but I also don't want to delete it now,lol.

He did mention that now he gets to drink and relax more. A few of the things he said and the fact he wears a mask makes me ponder of how I might be if I ever became a notable creator. I'd probably want to wear a cool mask.

Well,if I ever get a gaming PC, I'll have to add you. I recently got a shelf(almost like a movie store one), and it fit all my games,controllers, etc. Very happy. Might have to show how it looks. One day.

It's probably up there with "ENEMIES EVERYWHERE" and Harbringer's quotes.

Well, I've heard rumors that WWII might actually let you do that, lol. So the generic shoot game could possibly do that idea. But it seems like an idea that seems like some game has done it, but I can't recall which. It seems like a Rainbow Six or Ghost Recon feature. I mean the new one allows you to sync up shots/etc if you're playing alone. Maybe with can get smart AI with perfect butts.

Indeed, there's lots of those, but maybe sometimes we end up needing the generic games so we get those really great/unique ones.

Advanced Warfare's characters weren't bad but the story though.He goes against

Speaking of catgirls, but also butts.

No catgirls but all hail the penguin girls!

But Kemono Friends has cute designs,nice characters and an interesting story/backstory. Despite it's less than stellar animation. Also there was a penguin who fell in love with a cutout of one of Penguin girls. It knows that 2D>3D. Razz.  I have a few animes I want to binge watch with a friend, that is one of them. But I think it's because I like animals a lot and I recognize the animals.

I don't know why some days I just kind of feel....melancholy. I think sometimes it might be the weather, since here it's rained for what feels like a week with a break here and there.Sad But I do have a lot of good days too, I just seem to have some of these kind of days.Very Happy

Yeah, I like having a place to come to, especially a forum, since it feels like a lot of forums are dying out.

Indeed. I noticed it changed in the middle of posting a reply the other day, I saved it to draft and didn't post it til today,lol.

I am glad I saved all my fics here. I've also used it to save some of my stuff here. Maybe I should save those word docs with tons of images I've saved over a few years.

Also,how about Mario Kart 8 Switch? I haven't played it but the battle mode looks great, and they've added some fan favorites... pirat

Well yeah, general conversation was actually fun before 2013. At least we know this free forum isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Free Forum hosting sites seem to last forever, lol.

Oh yeah I remember that sig. The fact it got 200k in the span of years is pretty crazy given it's just a sig.

I basically have all the 2b related stuff saved already. I hope it's garnered enough mainstream popularity as a game character at this point by now that people will keep making more fanart of the character for a very long time.

And given how well Nier Automata sold, it's a pretty good testament that shows everyone else who plays games really likes girls as well. People should make more characters like 2B lol

Yeah, I ever become a notable creator or someone extremely important, I'd want a unique outfit to go along with it that'd look like something the protagonist of an RPG would wear.

You should definitely show us what that shelf looks like at some point. I have a lot of physical copies of games myself but never really put them up for display like some people do because in spite of how many I own I probably don't have enough to fill up an entire shelf.

You're probably thinking of that game by Gearbox called Brothers in Arms. It did take place in WWII and have AI squadmates to command. But the multiplayer of it wasn't very good in it's execution (the singleplayer was actually fun though).

Dunno if I said this before in the past or if I told someone else, but I'd rather we have a boots on the ground COD be based on a current ongoing conflict in real life. Like Syria or Ukraine or something. If the warmongers in the establishment and mainstream media really get US troops to invade Syria or something, we should at least get a video game out of it, lol.

I see, that show does seem like something people like a lot.

They're probably just days where nothing exciting/interesting happened in particular. I get those kinds of days too and I suppose it's just something that happens, neither good or bad.

Yes,it is pretty nice to have somewhere to go to. It's especially nice that the two people I mainly talked to via VMs happened to also be signed up for this site.

Yes, lol. That was pretty cool.

I think it has. I hope for that with stories and characters I like, especially lewder stuff, but it doesn't always work out that way.

I'd probably want some sort of mask, probably something to do with penguins...or foxes...or both. Maybe see how eccentric I could get with it,lol.

Indeed, I'm really happy with it. I'll have to get one of the pictures onto something to share it eventually. But my week has been busy, but positive.  With taking in scrap, helping to move the new dryer in (our old one broke), cutting the grass and vacuuming the rooms a bit, and going to the flea market/pawn shop. Got some wiimotes there for a good price and they work!

Maybe. But I thought i saw a comment on COD about that. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Well, it would certainly mix things up if we got some other conflicts. Vietnam doesn't have many, and even when it shows up it's treated as a background thing to some larger plot. Yes,lol. We need a new war, for the movies and the games we can make from it. pirat

The animation isn't really that great though, but it seems like a pleasant story and I enjoy the character designs.

On the subject of animals,I could've actually worked in an exotic animal place my dad's friend owned, which would've been great since he knew my dad,my great aunt lived nearby and my cousin worked there before. He had issues with drunk workers/workers demanding too much/not being reliable,despite living on the premises. So I'm sure I'd have been a pretty reliable worker with none of those issues and a strong work ethic,and skills with animals. Sadly though he had to sell all the animals a few years ago(before I had graduated),so that was a bummer. Maybe if things had gone a different way, I'd probably have some years under my belt there and maybe be a bit more established in the world...My luck with places closing down when I show interest in working somewhere or something conspiring against me. Volunteering worked out though. But I do have quite a lot of skills and a drive, so where ever I end up, I know I'll do good.

Maybe. I have had quite the positive week or two since I wrote that, since I've been kind of busy, but I've been in a mostly positive mood,maybe because my mind isn't wandering with nothing to do. And I have a weekend vacation/trip with family to look forward to.

I still feel that not much is happening in life. A pretty uneventful summer, but that's alright. Did get to go to Niagra Falls this summer and that was great. I'm pretty burnt out on the news, and people. Last month had a lot of company and it was tiring. As for the news, you can see why I'd be,lol. I suppose I've had an apathetic feeling for a while. Just felt like it hit harder for a bit of time.

Played Legend of the Dark Witch,Muramasa, Zone Of Enders 1 and 2,MGSV and Tales of Symphonia. I beat all but the last three... I got Muramasa for a few dollars and it's the best I ever spent. I just really loved the game, and watching Genroku Legends. Hell, I'm even doing post game stuff and going for other endings by fighting the final boss again, and doing the lairs. It's been kind of rare for me to continue with that kind of stuff once I complete a game. I should share the backlog post/review I had made for it. I am a bit more relaxed in what I play now.

I also watched a couple animes with a friend. Overlord,FLCL,Redline, Gundam Wing, Inferno Cop. Also a few lets plays and streamers. Makes me want to get some of em. We have watched a lot of clips of other animes though, ones we should probably watch.


Acchi Kocchi is pretty wholesome.

Just kinda checkin in since there hasn't been activity in a few months.

Yeah, I wish I could say I've been checking in lately. It's kind of been slipping my mind.  History kinda repeated itself for this summer. I ended up playing games nearly everyday. I ended up joining a clan that plays Overwatch and stuff (I felt I might as well since for the past couple of years I found myself on their teamspeak server pretty often because a lot of people I play with are in that clan). Speaking of streamers though, I played a lot of that game popular with streamers called PUBG. It was kinda fun to play with people for a while, but I think I'm kind of burnt out from it already. The only other game I was playing was Divinity Original Sin 1, I was kinda replaying it except this time with coop with someone (cause I never did that before). The sequel Divinity Original sin 2 actually comes out in 5 days, I really want to get that game. Not nearly as many games or backlog cleared up or visiting Niagara Falls as you did over your summer . But I guess I had fun, for what it's worth.

The stuff I did after summer was over on the other hand, maybe it's a bit more interesting. Would you believe me if I said I was in Berlin right now? I kinda wanted to study abroad before I graduated college, so now I'm here for the next three months. lol. I even met up with two friends I knew on steam since 2010 irl, lol.

I've heard talk of the game lately. I played a lot of co op on a few games with one of my friends. I guess I'm mostly a solo person when it comes to gaming, except for one or two people I enjoy co-op with. Well,outside of online matches on Mario Kart but I haven't played it lately. With online going to being "paid" on all three providers and the lack of couch multiplayer, I might sink back into my solo experience. I kind of already have.

I did beat ZOE1,got stuck in ZOE2, beat MGSV(I didn't really have much fun),and beat MGR(lots of fun). Got frustrated in Armstrong's fight due to controller issues but I fixed em. Also played a few demos like Odin Sphere. Oh, I did pick up Persona 4 Arena/Kameo/Never Dead/Tekken 6/Tekken Tag, Tekken 6 was ok, Persona 4 Arena was fine and TT2 was a game I'd rented in the past. I always have fun with the Tag games. 3 Dollars this summer is the key number for the most part, except for the one 5 dollar game. Some of the games gave me a reason to plug my 360 back in now that I can just swap HDMI cables. I did buy a few 25 cent games at the local flea market for PS1/PS2.

Anime wise, I've watched some Acchi Kocchi. Very wholesome to watch an episode before bed sometimes. I did see a bit of Luluco and one fox one from China. I might watch Kill La Kill since I just finished Rising and it's creeping into my dreams. Oh,and johnawesome finished his Persona 5 LP mostly, I really like the characters and story. SBFs playing Policenauts makes me think about the vision of the future people in the past had. Hopefully we get a space colony eventually.

Germany? That's pretty cool. I wouldn't mind going abroad somewhere. If I ever hit the lottery I wouldn't mind buying a ranch in Australia or something, and a few homes in other countries. Razz . Been entering PCH for a year. My friend's been entering for like 5-6 years, hope they win and send me some cash. :p

I'm a pretty shy person. I'd probably feel like hiding my face if I met someone I knew online. :p But since one lives in Hawaii I'd really love to go there just to go there. Do a FF roadtrip across the country meeting online friends would be great though.

Speaking of abroad, I've been kind of worried about what's going in North Korea due to having friends and family in the hotzone. I was a bit worried earlier when it looked like hurricane was gonna hit the east coast but now I'm not since it avoided them. NK's still an issue tho. Volition did have that contest to win a trip to Seoul but that would probably worry my mom if I had won it.

In the past few years I've learned a ton, had a lot of cool experiences, met some cool people, played lots of games, watched lots of tv/anime/movies/youtube,volunteered,got a lot of things done in those regards. I guess in other regards I've kind of neglected due to being busy or not really being excited about them.

I'm thinking of leaving IGN once my VIP there expires. I really haven't spent serious time there in a while and mostly everyone's on discord or other sites. It's just not really that fun anymore and I think I spend too much time lurking/leaving it open on another tab. Forums feel like they're a dying art with social media/reddit around and that's kind of a bummer.

Oh, I guess related to friends and stuff, I made a cameo in a Mystery Dungeon comic from two friends. I'll have to find it some time later.

Happy birthday!

Made progress in Tekken 6,but hit a wall with Alisa...what a hard boss she is. I beat RDR Undead Nightmares, and tried to play with a friend but was unable to do much with the multiplayer due to it being glitchy/etc. I moved onto Bayonetta after that, and had trouble with it due to dodge not working...it was due to the wired controller thing,so I switched to a normal controller. Man, what frustrating game,but I did like the references to old games and such.

For much of November,I played Nier Automata after finding it for $20. The inside box art thing is cool too. But anyways,I have to say I really enjoyed the game. Combat was very refined version of Platinum's combat. The story and characters were pretty good,and I had fun doing sidequests...but man does it make it more heartbreaking when route C rolls around. The soundtrack in the game is fantastic and definitely deserved it's award for it. I ended up putting 100 hours into the game,something I was not expecting to do, but I ended up 100%ing it basically, as well as platinuming it. The [E]nding was definitely something unique, words of encouragement from around the world, getting the request for help, and eventually sacrificing my file. I pondered if I'd have been willing to let go of it...but I'm glad I did. So,if you ever see someone that marked their location from Pluto and mentioning something like "Been through hard times myself,you can do it!",then that's me. Just an overall great experience that I wouldn't have minded if I'd have paid more money for.

I think I'm gonna take a break from gaming for a bit and work on some stuff. Since I do have Tales of Symphonia to tackle, and Fallout 4. I might also finally tackle Mass Effect 3, and some other games next year. Been watching some games on youtube as well, and they all sound pretty cool. Blue Omen certainly looked like an interesting indie game. Xenoblade 2 looked kinda cool.

Anyways,life has been an up and down kind of thing. However,one really good thing to happen in my life, is the fact I got a new bed! As well as new furniture set! And finally got to try out the quilt set I got as a gift! My old bed was kinda crappy but it was free...but it was pretty bad on my back and arms. This one is a nice,new,larger,soft, warm bed. Plus the set had 2 bonus pillows. Getting some pretty solid sleep. I do like to have a nap sometimes on it as well.

With the winter, it's just been really nice to turn on the heater, and hide under the covers. Time to relax.

Well, it's been a while since I checked in too. I haven't been here for Christmas or New Years, so it's good to know both of you seem to be doing fine and are still around, lol. (My cousin is studying graduate school in Sweden, lol. Dunno if I mentioned that before since I hardly ever see my cousin, lol xD.) I got back from Germany from studying and I did lot of other stuff the last month. On one hand I'm kind of happy since that means I don't have to do anything for a little bit since I've basically finished school and my BA in Econ. But on the other hand I'm kinda bummed out since now I don't really know what to do and I'm worried about what I'll have to/going to do come next year since I can't just stay at home forever.

This last month I beat Dark Souls 3. I got it and cooped it together with two people, and later I did those bosses by myself in the NG+. I have this paper full of tallies for how many tries it took me to beat each boss. I kind of did it so it felt like I was making progress on learning how to kill each boss and by doing that it was less frustrating to die to it. Plus then I could also say it took me 31 tries to kill for example the Nameless King in that game (which it did). Also did end up getting Divinity Original Sin 2 and finished it with those same people. It was one of the best RPGs I played in a while.

One game I really want to play this month is Trails of Cold Steel Part 2, which comes out in about a week and also I want to play FFXV. I know I could have played both of those on the PS4 a long time ago but still, I can't wait to play them, lol (maybe I should have just bought a PS4 Pro when I was still in Germany and brought it back home with me, lol).

I also watched a whole bunch of anime like Food Wars, Kill la Kill, and also Konosuba. I can see why everyone likes Megumin so much now. lol

Cool. Trying to help my mom with getting stuff sent overseas to some family, it's...a few months late but getting it all together and such hasn't been too easy.

Heh,I've made no progress on co-op games(well,Borderlands Pre Sequel). I did however play Just Cause 3's DLC and it was pretty damn fantastic. It cost me 8 bucks when it's normally 24.I also finished Ada's campaign in RE4, and beat Blaster Master Blasting Again for PS1...that game started off fine, but the 2nd revisit of one of the world's really dragged on because it was a maze, filled with 7 bosses, numerous mini bosses, and other annoying stuff. Then basically the final Boss. So effectively I fought like 9-10 bosses in a row.counting the previous world's boss.

I bought Lightning Returns. And decided to start FF8(tho I'm missing disc 3), I can't start FF7(missing disc 1). So I've debated on buying 7 on another platform...I wonder if I could play the same save file on PS3..hm. But a friend's clocked 70 hours..on disc 1, and suffered at the golden saucer, and other places..so that sounds daunting. and FF13 is 3 games. I do also have Symphonia to play.

I finished Baccano,a short one called "I Can't Understand What My Husband's Saying." and Season 1 of Highschool DxD. Killing Bites and Overlord Season 2 have been interesting. That's some good official art.

Megumin is great. I really like all the characters.

Shipping stuff overseas can be expensive. My mom and I tried to send Blue Mountain Koana coffee to someone in Germany and the UPS dude said it would cost $100+ in shipping. Might as well just have given the dude the money to his bank account so he could order the stuff himself instead.

When it comes to Resident Evil. I also beat RES5 coop with an irl friend I knew since high school. I found it kind of hard because I was always short on ammo in that game and we couldn't just buy more ammo inbetween missions (even though we could buy new guns).

It's a shame the more recent Resident Evil games don't have real coop. For example Revelations 1 and 2 only had "coop" in that fake raid/mercenaries mode thingy. And that felt more like some kind of mmorpg as opposed to a real coop survival horror/action feel. I don't understand the decision making behind not including coop in the story mode because in nearly every mission in those games your partner was always next to you (the newest RES game is even just single player only). Far Cry 3 and 4 pulled this kind of stunt too with its coop, they only let you coop in free roam mode and not the story mode.

At least they said there'll be story mode coop in Far Cry 5, but they then said only the hosts progress will be saved. So that's awkward. It must be funny to have to play through every part twice in the same session. I had to do it three times in DS3 cause everyone's story/boss progress was independent of everyone else's, so I know how tedious that would be. I don't get why you'd even impose this type of restriction on people. If only I had majored computer science in college instead. I would use those skills to become a modder that would mod coop into a lot of the fun games I think deserve coop. Like say... Sleeping Dogs or MGSV. Someone could just mod the Quiet and the Ocelot characters from the MGO part of MGSV and put them in as controllable characters for the real game. I guess with hard work it'd be possible. Someone had made coop mods for Morrowind and Skyrim

70 hours? I guess he got stuck on the part where Cloud and his friends got dumped in the desert below the Golden Saucer I guess. I forgot how you got out of there, I think it was beating a chocobo race or something. I for one got stuck in the part with the temple in Disc 1 and just grinded to level 50 to beat the Demon's Gate boss there. The rest of the game was easy because I was overleveled for the enemies that came after that part.

Didn't know what Baccano is until you mentioned it. I did watch High School DxD though cause some friend told me to watch it. I didn't even realize he was joking so he was surprised when I came back a week later and told him I watched all 3 seasons. On that note I liked S1 of High School DxD, but didn't really like S2 or S3 of it. I'm ok with Harem types of anime but that Asia Argento girl showed up too much and was in every scene basically and I didn't like her character in particular since she was really whiny.



I like everyone too. Lalatina Darkness and Aqua are hilarious. I would also totally make this gif of Megumin my new signature on mkwii.com... if it were still around.

Yes, that's what we were thinking about when thinking of buying an NES Classic or SNES Classic, that it'd be easier to just give money to buy it.

I did beat it with a friend too. I went from Easy the first time to Pro Mode the next, and we beat Mercs. Also RE6 normal and pro modes. Later on we did play the DLC for 5. Saints Row 3/4 were fun co-op games. But yeah,I didn't know Rev 1 n 2 didn't have co-op. I'm a rare co-op person, but I do enjoy it with certain people. I'm kind of a picky person that doesn't play with randoms too often. But I do think I make a pretty good teammate.

I'd have totally bought MGSV way sooner if it had had co-op like that. It's a missed opportunity to not make the AI partners,or send Kaz out. There's Mass Effect modders working on it. Peace Walker was disappointing since everyone looked the same, and special characters couldn't go out. So it wasn't like "have kaz" go out and help or something. Monster Hunter missions were fun, a friend and I beat every single mission. They're a guru at the game.

A few people on a board I was on wanted to make a game, but there was no direction so it was kind of disappointing that it didn't really go anywhere. I'd love to be part of a cool team project. I'm versatile in everything except for coding so I can sorta be any role I guess.

Yes, as well as grinding for the Omnislash. He went on a revenge trip to defeat the giant serpent and it was pretty funny when they described it because they destroyed it because they were so overleveled. Now they're focusing on the Ruby and Emerald weapons, the insane superbosses. I got Lightning Returns a couple weeks ago, and I might buy the others in the series soon. I have 7 and 8...bu they're missing a disc each...no idea why. 10 didn't work either. That's actually how I ended up with Symphonia. But on the game, they're at 90 hours and disc 2. I did draw some artwork based on the dream they had, as well as some based on their frustration.

said friend wrote:
A) Where the fuck do I go? multiple times that problem arose in the game. B) Needed to level grind to fight a major enemy/boss. C) Needed to look up the solution to a puzzle that didn't make it obvious how to solve it.D) The golden saucer in general was absolute shit,fuck that place.


It was a nifty one. One odder one I guess I've watched a bit of is Chobits, where he finds an android girl in the trash and decides to keep her,lol. It's a world where PCs are androids. That I started last year tho and watch an episode here and there. I don't normally buy manga,but I did see Konosuba, and Chobits at the Barnes and Noble. And a store had a blu ray of Yu Yu Hakusho, but it expensive, like everything else in the store.  I have been meaning to watch  Kill La Kill. I did watch Inferno Cop and that was an adventure. I might check out Darling, and that Space Patrol one they made.

I've also been back into drawing and I'm really happy to. 3DS hinge broke, so I'm drawing a bit more on paper again. I've thought of getting a vita.
