    I'll just delete the thread and "reboot" it in the Anime/Manga section. Hopefully it will be much more at home there. Thought there would be no power today but we were lucky (glory be to the Power gods haha) so while it is still here, let me get to work :) here's hoping you're doing alright over there

    When I wanted to setup the thread for Counting Electric Sheep, I wasn't sure whether to put it up in the Anime/Manga section or in the Music & Entertainment I ended up going for the Music & Entertainment section since at the end of the day, it's music. But having gone through the A/M section I think maybe I should've gone there instead (^^!) *sigh* so do I "cut" the thread from the M/E section and "paste" it to the A/M section? Or I'll have to delete the whole thread and start from scratch over at A/M??

    Stupid power indeed /==./ this whole situation has turned us into night owls haha! The funny thing is if/when things get normal again, I wonder how long it will take to readjust...because you'll still have moments where you wonder if power will go or not. Just when you think it won't go, BAM, gone *face palm*

    Oh, alright no problem :) it'll be great to talk to her again and find out how she's been doing.

    Rooibos is the one that made an impact here, I don't know of any SA green tea brands though haha hopefully you've been lucky enough to find them. I don't mind green tea, it's just that there's usually just regular tea in the house (unless mom brings home a surprise box of ginger tea).

    I wouldn't blame you for not listening to regular music, given how a lot of the music out there these days (for many, many years) is garbage. Anime/video game music stays top quality, no matter from what years :) I spent the most time listening to the Pokemon video game OSTs while working on the story than any other OST before haha because there are specific themes that I was looking for that I think would go well with the various locations and characters. Now I can't stop those themes from randomly playing in my head haha the old man could come home from town and an Encounter theme starts! HELP!! So I'm curious to know, which anime/video game tracks do you like? Because guess what the theme for Counting Electric Sheep 4 is?? :D

    Speaking of it is, at long last - Pokemon: The Journey of Janice.

    Let's find out what people think of it :) I had fun working on it all these months.

    You're right about Brotherhood, normally you can just recommend it to someone and they don't even need to bother with the original. But I think the appreciation of Brotherhood is completed once you've watched both :) if it was a case where the original wasn't well done, then yeah we'd just pretend it never happened haha. Could the same thing be said about Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT I wonder...because while it would be easy to watch DBZ and then go straight for the newer series Dragon Ball Super, you miss out on some of the cool things from GT e.g. the Super Saiyan 4 form and the villains.

    lol, stupid power

    Fairy is on leave right now and has things happening, so she's just forgetting/being unable to reply for now, as she mentioned to me. dw, if she hasn't gotten back to you yet, she will when she can. ^^

    Rooibos is good, yes! Not my favorite though, I tend to enjoy green teas a bit more. Still need to finish the rooibos in our pantry haha. Never heard of the band though, but that's because I'm not crazy into music and only listen to anime/video game tracks from time to time. Probably one of the few who rarely listens to music, and can't listen when I'm doing other things since I'm an awful multitasker haha.

    What about you? Haha, are you as picky with anime/manga as you are with music, hmm?
    Not as much! I have lower standards there, I suppose. The original FMA was also very good, I won't lie, but since watching Brotherhood it's hard for me to see it in the same light since Brotherhood was just so...complete. Nothing can compete against Ready Steady Go though, such an iconic and catchy anime opening. <3

    This will be Take 2. Power went while I was responding to this yesterday morning haha. Weekends have been officially ruined.

    Sorry to say that no, Fairy hasn't communicated with me so I still don't know what's up :/

    I can understand wanting to do something now while you still got the chance :) not knowing if/when that chance will come again, so maybe in the end going to Kruger wasn't too bad haha I'm glad you're on the road to recovery. Tea is big here, PROBABLY because the country's a former British colony..? So you would be right at home here. Since you're in SA, I'll guess you've discovered brands like Five Roses? Or the popular Rooibos tea?

    Oh, I was definitely aiming for it to become a game from the very beginning :) to the point where I typed it in a similar style to the walkthroughs I've done for Pokemon Adventure Red Chapter Beta 14.5 and Pokemon Flora Sky (Complement Dex version). So it became part story, part "example of a walkthrough for the game version". Haha I'm no writer, much less of fan fiction but I think I can spin a decent story and this was just my attempt at doing that. Putting together all my experience from playing the official games and roms over the years to offer what I thought is something new. Because one thing I've become very critical about in games is the story and characters. We've talked about the recycling of the same plot again and again by many roms and I think in the later generations of the official games, the story and characters have gotten weaker. Grown to be less memorable. Doesn't matter that there's fancy new graphics and game mechanics if the story is rubbish haha. Am almost done reading through the story and making final sweeps...when I'm done I'll send you the link to it and I'll also drop it off by Launchpad. Hope people will dig it :D

    I believe Brotherhood pretty much covered the whole manga, while the first anime ended with a filler arc...but I think the first one is still worth watching because it was that good. Not sure about anime/manga from the romance or comedy categories haha hmm..maybe School Rumble, that is another early one I saw. Action, adventure, battle driven stuff, that's my jam. But I don't mind decent slice-of-life drama titles e.g. Bakuman (story of 2 friends who aim to publish their manga in Weekly Jump magazine. Done by the same team who created Death Note). What about you? Haha, are you as picky with anime/manga as you are with music, hmm?

    I highly doubt I'll get Discord, not because I dislike it...but because I had my social media fun and I guess I got tired of trying to keep up. FB was cool and hip for a couple of years, some of the online pals I made from there later on became real life friends. Everyone was into anime and manga, so there was always stuff to talk about...the jokes, the memes :) good times. Now people have scattered and life took over, as it always does haha I hardly use FB or Twitter for that matter. So I'm either offline or chatting with people on Whatsapp (yup, knowing that it is owned by FB now haha oh the irony..).

    Hahaha we didn't have much of a choice... @[email protected]; bf's conference date was slated for July 16-20 and it felt like such a waste to miss out on the safaris when we weren't sure when or if we'd ever go back to Kruger. Lots of cool sights and photos were had though and I don't regret going despite getting sick. :sweatdrop: Mostly cured now, yeah, thanks lots to tea drinking as you already have suggested! Am very big on tea. :3c (And I certainly hope you don't get sick omg.)

    If you ever get Discord or something you should let me know. Part of why I don't add many people to WhatsApp is because I almost never use it, while I've got Discord open pretty much all the time and do all my important communicating regarding the site and even some rl stuff (except family, they prefer SMS) through it.

    And if it's just a story at the moment and you're unsure whether you'll turn it into a game, I say go for Fan Fiction and Writing! The mods of it are listed near the header of the section at the top and they can help if you have questions, but yeah, stories go there. Otherwise if you do want to launch it as a game at some point and are looking for feedback on it as a game idea, try Launchpad o/

    (Brotherhood is freaking amazing)

    And yeah Fairy is a very cool person, she doesn't live too far from me when I'm in NYC aha. I can poke her for you for sure if she hasn't gotten back to you in the two days it took me to respond to this, lolol

    Under this season, I'm not sure if evening safaris are a good idea :/ I had hoped things would start warming up as we slowly move into July...but wow, there's been an upgrade in the chill these past few days haha doesn't matter if there's sunshine during the day. I'm sorry about you coming down with a cold, I would imagine any lemons that you may have in the house are now exclusively in your possession? If you're the type who doesn't mind tea, then you'd do well to have some in the meantime :) unless you're either already doing that or you've found better means to win the fight against the cold. I've been lucky enough not to have a cold (I've probably jinxed myself right there, ha) this winter...but the occasional runny nose. Made sure to be drinking lots of water, I guess that has helped. Otherwise I would've hijacked all the lemons!

    It's fine, better with real life people than not. I just choose to extend that to online people as well, but those whom I've come to trust enough. I'm not always going to have internet for the computer but I make sure to be reachable via phone. I don't just give out my number, I'm a private person and I enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with not being on various platforms, with a bunch of "friends" and followers who are only strangers at the end of the day, many of whom I will probably never meet in person. So you can delete the PM with my number then, can't have it just sitting there gathering dust haha.

    Despite the power cuts, I can give some good news - the story is finally done! Well, the version I've been writing on paper is done...what's left now is transferring to the Notepad document on the PC. Do I then bring it to you since you are an Admin here? Because my hope was I can pitch it here as an idea, with the hope that maybe I can find a rom creator or rom team who would like to help bring the story to life as a game for people to play :)

    Both are good titles :) Death Note is what I would call a "starter pack" anime/manga series, as in it's one of the early series I would recommend to someone new to anime and manga. Start them off with the likes of DN, Fullmetal Alchemist (original and then Brotherhood), then they step up to the Big 3 (Naruto, Bleach, One Piece) and they're off to the races. Let them discover the big bosses like Attack on Titan and One Punch Man on their own down the road haha

    One last thing, are you in touch with user Fairy? She was cool enough to be the first person here that I had great conversations with when I was new. But there was a point where she had to be away because of internet troubles. I responded to the last PM she sent me but I haven't heard from her since. I even sent her a public message on her profile, still nothing. If you can help and find out from her what's up, please do.

    Better but sick..again.....had stomach flu 1.5 weeks ago and now down with a cold. alas ;_; Kruger was quite cold, I brought a jacket but that wasn't enough to protect me from getting sick at our evening safari, lol. Bluh power cuts.

    Yeah, I guess the way I do things is different than some. @[email protected] I use WhatsApp very exclusively for people I know irl since I don't like giving out my phone number unless it's people I'm close with irl, when I can already chat with online friends via Twitter and Discord. We can always stick to PC chatting too, I'm already slow enough with responding myself so it's no big deal to me if we take days or even weeks to answer a previous message aha.

    hnnng I love me some Noragami and Death Note

    Net returned but the powercuts continue /==./ *sigh* so we're not out of the woods yet. Like today, I'm expecting a powercut in the afternoon...then power will return much later. I hope you are doing much, MUCH better than this haha.

    I'm not sure how you'd get confused haha but okay. I don't have Discord, hence why I gave you my number. All the people I stay in touch with, whether they are real life friends or online friends, I give them my number because I don't have time for Discord and company (Twitter, FB etc). If I didn't consider you a friend, I wouldn't have brought up Whatsapp at all.

    Ohh, THAT Musica! Sorry (^^!) I guess I read that as an anime title haha. She was cool yes, I hope she's still okay at this point in the story. The last chapter I read was 115, anything could've happened between then and the current chapter. I'm confident her arc will be covered in Season 2, maybe it will go even as far as the Goldy Pond arc and the action that whole arc had. Keeping each season at 12 episodes would be a good idea I think, to give time for the manga to move and the anime crew will have enough source material to work with. Not having to rely on filler haha that certainly brings back a lot of memories.

    Speaking of sequels....well, here is CSE 3! A.k.a Counting Electric Sheep San (Death & the Anime Strawberry Mix) :D bonus points to anyone who gets the "Death & the Strawberry" reference haha *whispers* it's a nod to the title of Bleach manga Volume 1 - The Death & the Strawberry. I liked the ending, had a little fun with the 2 themes. Just waiting for the hardcore Digimon fans to come knocking at my door hehe...any day now.

    hellloo how are you, glad you got your net back

    yeah PC has been much faster with speeds since we moved, glad we made the move. :> and like I said via PM, I don't use whatsapp much at all and when I do, I prefer it be for family/co-workers/irl people, otherwise I will get confused haha. If you have discord though, we can always use that. :thumbsup:

    Musica is a character from Promised Neverland! I would like to see season 2 animate her and the rest of the new characters, would be awesome.

    and ya @ sequel \o/

    This time it's my turn to apologise for the delay haha I had back to back power cuts last week & no internet at home. Wasn't at work too until today, only to see that the site will be down starting today /==./ wow. Am hoping to get internet back this week. While the site is down, I'm thinking of giving you my number so that we can stay in touch via Whatsapp if you happen to have it. I'll PM you the number.

    Those people are right :D VERY different, because there's a whole other world waiting for them beyond the comfort of that house. I think it kept the story fresh and added more depth to it. I caught up in the manga until several months ago when I heard that it was entering the final arc, so I thought I'd just wait until the manga ended then jump back in. But I think there's been over 20 chapters out since then so I'm now thinking of catching up. Reading 3 chapters per week maybe? :) take your time with the manga, if you're patient enough you could just wait until it ends...or catch up by reading a couple of chapters per week.

    Sure :) any feedback on the tracks will be helpful, requests as you sharing the set with other anime fans would be awesome. Any artists (you included) who would like to have their art featured as the cover art for future sets are welcome too. Good news is I've recorded & uploaded the sequel :D I got the link right here haha that is, if you're interested..?

    Musica? I haven't heard of that one. Is it one of the classics or a recent anime?
  13. Sheep
    July 5th, 2019 12:51 AM
    I'm going to relisten to the tracks today and let you know, and take another listen to the Tag song also <3 TPN is just amazing overall. Some people say it becomes a little too different with the next season/after they escape from the house, but I actually love the wide range of characters and atmospheres they've introduced, even if I'm nowhere near caught up with the manga. Musica in particular has been a favorite of mine :3c

    You are welcome :) and agreed, The Promised Neverland is fantastic. I picked up the manga when it started and once the anime was announced I really hoped it would be well done. Glad to see that it was! That song Tag is my favourite, as short as it is haha of course it's from the training the children were doing in preparation for the big escape. What did you think of the other songs? I just went in blind, since I had no idea what kind of anime you're into, or which anime you've watched and I gambled my way through :D any fellow anime fans among your pals, you can share it with them too. If Counting Electric Sheep becomes a regular thing, I'll be taking requests

    dang you hit the nail on the head
    I've listened to this song on repeat so many times I lost count, it's amazing! great series too
