Wait: "Tacticslion" is an anime?! And it's naked?! I have such mixed feelings, right now...


(For real, though, I've never heard of it. I'll need to see if it's on Netflix.)

It had a limited theater run early this month. I can't wait for it to hit shelves.

To the best of my knowledge, the series Ghost Hunt had no fanservice whatsoever.

EDIT: Be aware, that my guesses are made as of episode three. So, it's almost (but really it's not) cheating if it's someone I haven't met, yet!

Also, I get four guesses, because "There" isn't a number! ;P

that's right! It's Chiho!

I will not list the things I want to do Chiho.

Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay.

I don't care what points it may have lost.

TDiaPT! gained all that back and more for the casual Legend of Zelda animated series references in EP4! AHAHAHAHAHAH~!

the cheesecake in you're under arrest was for fans of police uniforms.

Quiet amounts in tytania,which I need on dvd.

Considerable amount in rideback(upskirt shots).

No cheesecake in a false gundam series is why it is a false gundam series.

... okay, either these voice actors or the dub translators are extremely skilled nerds:

I have to admit: Chiho is feistier than her character archetype would normally suggest (as she's normally so wistful); it is definitely a bonus that she's not a Tsundre (I think that's what it's called? When they're hateful/spiteful/cruel, 'cause they just wov <character> so much?) in characterization either. Feisty, yes, but earnest and open. That's a nice, relatively rare trait from the anime I've seen (at least in people given a "positive" take).

E6: re: the internet, "It's like a series of <magic> tubes!"

Dang it. Well, now I know someone working on it is roughly my age... XD

So I just finished episode one of The Devil is a Part-Timer!, and, while I really shouldn't be by now (because, Japan*), I was actually surprised both with how seriously the opening took itself, and how it's sussed itself out.

Though it feels pretty trope-y - and I'm pretty sure that (by now) I can anime-guess where things are headed, over-all, with maybe, like, a degree of error or two - it's still a fun first episode (well, first episode and about ~5 minutes into the second).

Anyone else seen it? What do they think?

* To be fair, this isn't Japanese - not by a long shot. The trope of, "<Entity> from <Mythic Place> ending up in modern day <our country>!" is super-common. I find it less common in our current suite of films, but it certainly is present here, too - just look at Marvel's Thor or Superman for relatively recent ones. Beyond that, it makes sense - the filmmakers wish to express a culture both they and the audience are familiar with, and exploring the fish-out-of-water stories when the metaphorical "fish" is foreign to your basic tenets permits situational and social humor at their interface with what is, to you, a very common element of life (simultaneously parodying that aspect, and also potentially allowing you to appreciate it more). But it does seem a bit more common in anime, at present. Truth be told, with the way it started off, I expected something a lot more like I Couldn't Become a Hero,
so I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job
-style system with a fantasy world, but made modern and mundane - nope, it's a good ol' fashioned "BOOP: modern Japan!" story.

I love that show! It's one of my favorites. The fish out of water aspect is very humorous (the fast food rivalry later on is especially amusing), but what I really love is the constant subversion of expectations regarding who is good and who is evil. Which is right in my wheelhouse, since I love to play with those tropes myself. :)

I mostly enjoy Emi's consistent, "Wait, wat." - it makes total sense, and I'm personally still a bit emotionally* suspicious about Mao's "quick" transition from the person he was to the one he is now (because it was surprisingly quick),

* This is different from logically. I'm doubtful that the anime will turn him back into senior psychopants. Also, no, I don't
know how to make an "eniae"/"n with squiggly mark over it" (nor do I know how to spell it phonetically in English) so, enjoy being superior, captain yesterday and/or everyone fluent in typing Spanish!

It's 3 PM here in Pittsburgh, and it's raining really hard. So hard, that I'm writing-off this scan tour. If it were Winter, it would be a blizzard with white-out conditions. The type of weather Freehold would revel in. Glad I just made some hot tea.

this is the dub or the sub? Because dubbies are NOTORIOUS for sticking in things that don't belong and calling it creative license.

Is there a SFW version called Sexual Hunter Peaceful Protest?

Bank holiday today, so I woke up late, cleaned the house, then went to HEMA (since it was on in the afternoon as opposed to the evening). It was alright; I managed to do a half-decent job of fighting someone with a longsword using sword & buckler, which doesn't often happen. Then I ate fish & chips, went home and read LOTR.

Well, unfortunately it looks like we're headed down the road to ugliness with my family.

Not only have they demanded that we bring in a property manager who will bring the rent "up to market", but they want ME to do all the legwork, interviews, vetting, and so forth of said manager.

So pretty much, "Hey, NobodysHome! We want to do something that you consider morally reprehensible! And oh, by the way, we want YOU to do all the legwork to help us do it!"

My first response was overly polite: "Would you like to give me some suggestions as to who I should interview?"

But honestly, in spite of my cheerful and generous nature, we're reaching the point of bridge-burning here, where I tell them exactly what I think of their plans, and where they can stick 'em.

Worst-case scenario is that we end up selling the house and alienating my family, so I walk away with a couple hundred grand and no more family.

I'd rather keep my family, but man, are they being a$$hats right now...

NH, that's rough. You've got my sympathies. But I've got no experience with this kind of situation, so I can't offer any advice. Sorry.

I walked into the theater with no information about the plot. Which was glorious.


I'm avoiding it, but just pointing out that I now know about it.

Here's hoping I'll remember!

LOL. *I* am the one in danger of legal action against me for charging too little rent for all these years, but I have the family's signatures on every lease since the place was first rented.

So I think I'm on pretty sound footing:
"NobodysHome, why did you charge your tenants such ludicrously low rent?"
"Because I felt it was the right thing to do, and notice that my family signed off on every single lease renewal throughout my tenants' tenancy, so it's not like they didn't know what I was charging. If anything, it was THEIR lack of concern that allowed the rent to stay so low for so long..."

As it is, all I want to do is hand off the property to a property manager and forget it exists. It's just that my family wants ME to interview a bunch of property managers to find the "best" one for the job. And h*** if I'm going to spend hours of my already-precious-little free time doing THEIR dirty work for them.

I have a former acquaintance who may still be a property manager. I shot him an e-mail. Job done.

Okay, but, like, why is this a thing?

As in: why, on this entire earth, would you be in legal trouble for not charging "enough" money?

"Enough" by what standard?

Who declares something "enough" and why is that the lower limit you could charge?

Since when is this ever a thing?

This is fundamentally baffling to me.
