I am as always amazed at how such a huge voice acting industry as Japan's fails to have a single actor that speaks proper English.

Okay, I think there is like one or two of them, but you sure don't see them often.

The English in Squid Girl was good and some in BECK. Some of that in BECK was also hilarious though.

I was gonna give them credit for getting the pronunciations understandable, but then they ballsed up their own subtitles.

"Nobody calls me baka around here", one of my favourite animu lines of all time.

The video I linked is pretty much the only I've seen of that squid girl series.

Oh, and a bunch of dujinshis. But that's a different story.

Why do I think Netto will mind the least?

>[HorribleSubs] Naruto SD - Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden - 16 [720p].mkv
The best time of the week is here, although I doubt PC is cool enough to enjoy Rock Lee.

I thought you didn't watch airing shows? Aside from Yuru Yuri

You know, since I've only read the first six volumes of Naruto, I probably wouldn't get any of the jokes. So yeah.

Yeah, I was missing out on /a/ threads so I decided that watching stuff that doesn't have plot would be fine. Chitose Get You, Moyashimon Returns Yuru Yuri ♪♪, Joshiraku, Fairy Tail and eugh, any of the other random things I might pick up.

I'm still waiting for a new Guilty Crown or Star Driver to appear to enjoy weekly, at first I thought it was going to be SAO but after reading it I don't think so. Well, unless they majorly screw it up. *wonders how they'll edit around chapter 16.5* To any of you that have read it, that caught me off guard. I thought this was shounen.

Speaking of rapiers, and my boredom.

...


This is gonna get me in trouble, isn't it.
TBH, I prefer Archers and Snipers. I'm so totally a camper. So Sinon is beast from GGO. And lulz is that DonDon? XD hope that's in ALO so I can get revived.

Also the heck? I have an Ahoage? XD

Spoiler:


MOFO with a Hecate II.

Told you it was a pretty great light novel. It might feel fragmentary, but the author plans to retcon the whole thing and rewrite a chronological adaptation from Floor 1-74 in SAO: Progressive.

Ch. 16.5 is the epitome of vanilla, plus how stable relationships should be. ROTFL.

But sadly real life can't have such perfect relationships. ;;

It did feel very fragmented indeed. I presume he was literally throwing everything out and hoping something stuck, I really hope the rest of the volumes have a bit more flow and description. I like the world he's created but I was only absorbed into it during that final segment.

Fights weren't overly impressive but I expect they'll look better than they read. Characters are neither good nor bad, Kirito had a few good moments but meh. Asuna....has nice design I guess.

As for chapter 16.5, I thought they were going to evade it actually and tbh if I was writing I probably would. Yes he took the more realistic option but I'm a bit of a romancehag. Then again it moved on the relationship and made for a nice and light couple of chapters afterwards. I've read that loads of other girls get introduced, I desperately hope he doesn't do an Araragi and go after them all....although from what I read in the first 25 chapters I'm guessing he will.

Excuse this ramble, I've been awake over 24 hours now.

I agree, this series was one of those "Cellphone Novels" that became popular a decade ago when this was published, so the author was probably throwing around MMO ideas he had during the time. The latter arcs are much more coherent. ALO is short, but still straightforward

I dunno, it's pretty rare to have an Ace to be an outright protagonist. Sure he has his "growing up moments" but that's part of the story. xD
Asuna...has one of those "rich girl pressures" background, so it shows...

I'd just have to say...he'll start looking like someone with a one-track mind in terms of relationships...it's the girls that gravitate towards him that it turns to a one-sided thing "with understanding" among the various parties. It get's parodied later on in "There is but one ultimate way" with the "Kirito Kataomoi Alliance" LOL. XP

3. That number screw up was my bad in that very post. I was actually talking about a certain someone's doodle. I had to run away without fixing the number because I had other things I needed to do on my break.

I'm pretty sure upon meeting him I wouldn't stab Netto in the... uh... wherever the hell you have me stabbing him.

Unless, of course, we met in a PvP video game. Though knowing me I'd one-button spam some hax move. only reason I win at any fighting game ever, really

One annoying thing about Stunky is that ability called Aftermath:



Hey, if you knock me out with a direct attack that makes contact, I'll damage your Pokemon!

Yeah, they are such quirky Pokemon, interesting type combo, even gets Flamethrower upon evolving even though IT'S NOT EVEN A FIRE-TYPE!

The use of Fire moves and Explosion is what makes me feel the Stunky line is so weird. That and Aftermath too...

Use of flamethrower and explosion sort of makes sense if we imagine the Stunky family is filled with toxic gas, in the same way as Koffing is.
Certain gases, like Methane, which I'd assume Stunkys and Koffings are producing constantly, are easily combustible. And if they're combustible an explosion isn't far fetched either.
