  1. I watched the first season of A Certain Magical Index and almost all of A Certain Scientific Railgun recently

    They're both very good (though I could do without the fanservice involving middle schoolers)

      Crow the BOOLET

      I've watched all of Railgun first before watching Index and it was an interesting experience. Yeah I'm slowly watching Season 1 of Index but I thought it was interesting seeing things through Mikoto's side of things and somethings were a lot more dramatic due to me not seeing the big picture, namely the destruction of the Tree Diagram.

      I do have mixed feelings about it though, mostly because it has the same problems I have with the entire shonen genre. I'm not a fan of well the fanservice; I feel like they gave Mikoto shorts just so they can get away with all the upskirt shots as well as giving an excuse to "identify" the Sisters. Its also very long and still ongoing, with the series constantly introducing new characters without establishing its own, leaving a lot of characters in the dust. And I really don't like Touma because he's preachy as fuck.

      However what keeps me going with this series is the characters, the setting, and the creative use of powers. Mikoto Misaka is by far my favorite character in the series mostly due to her character and powers. Long story short I feel like Mikoto is more of a person than a character due to her quirks in her personality. She's also very creative with her powers, constantly innovating to get the upper hand despite just having electric powers. I also really love Kuroko and Accelerator for being fun characters, though the latter freaked me out at first. Its just the science side is just so interesting and I love watching what happens.

      tl;dr It reminds me of Jojo in a good way

      I think Mikoto's shorts work more as an anti fanservice thing, honestly, since she's usually flying around and doing backflips and such with her electricity, hehe. I think it's a good design choice

      As for Touma I kinda have a thing for somewhat generic shonen protagonists, so I'm kind of a fan of his. I don't actually think there's any main character in it that I don't like, but that's usually the case for whatever I watch anyways

      I heard that watching Railgun before Index was recommended because watching Index first "ruins the emotional aspect of the Sisters arc", but I still felt the emotional weight of Railgun's version, and I thought Touma's refusal to fight Mikoto and his battle with Accelerator was better in Railgun. So if I'd watched Railgun first I probably would've been disappointed in Index's version

      ...I sure am rambling now huh, ehehe

      Side note, I'm watching the dub and I like the voices :D

  3. look, I'm just saying, Mercedes Fire Emblem looks soft and that hugging her would probably feel very cozy and warm

      You're just saying that because of the Exhibitionist Mercedes  meme.

      Hubert is my favourite 3H character. I care him.

      I was not aware of the Mercedes meme actually, I only knew about her support where she mentioned she forgot to put her clothes on once, hehe

      Hubert is p good too. My favorite is Bernadetta

  4. Trails of Cold Steel III is being ported to the Switch, which is really cool, but if they aren't porting the first two that may be a problem. It's a very story heavy game and you kinda need to play the first two to understand what's going on.

    But if anyone owns a PS4 and a Switch I recommend the whole trilogy, hehe.

  5. Ah, December. I was finally able to update my icon to a more festive version!

  6. Anyone else ever so slightly annoyed (but not too annoyed) that all of Sonic's lines in Smash 4 and Ultimate are just ripped from other games

    And since Roger never did any tsk-ing or surfacing from water lines, they just used Jason Griffith's old ones from Brawl

      The fact that "You're too slow" isn't a thing anymore is the worst part

  7. I wish I had MONEY but to have MONEY I need to have DRAWING AND ADVERTISING SKILLS for COMMISSIONS

  13. I don't really mind criticism towards the new Pokemon games, but I do think some people (not necessarily here as I haven't been following the topic on this forum) may have had too high of an expectation? This is Pokemon's first console game, but a bunch of people on Twitter seemed to want some giant, open world BotW styled game. And, maybe it's just me, but Pokemon never really seemed to be a AAA series. Which never bothered me! I liked Diamond, White, Y and Sun. But it hasn't ever struck me as anything more than just a fun game series.

      It's a couple of things.

       

      1) Game Freak's statements have made people skeptical. Specifically saying that they're working on animations 

      2) For better or worse, people put tons of emotional value on being able to transfer their Pokemon from game to game; not having that feature was inevitably going to be controversial.

       

      3) Game Freak has had a history of cutting content from their games, so this was kind of the straw that broke the camel's back.

       

      The game looks fine mind you, but I think people are just really burnt on how they've been handling the series and its lack of innovation in recent years.
