Oh my gosh hello!!!!! =D
Lillliaaaaa! How are you, lady?
Eh, not much. I stayed up till 4 this morning playing TP so now I'm not too awake, but it was totally worth it.
No, we're birth month buddies. Big difference.
How's it going?
Your birthday is three days after mine omg.
I hope I made a good case for [I]Utena[/I], 'cause I adore it. Definitely check out those free episodes that the localization company has put on YouTube so you can get a feel for it. I should note that very little gets explained until about 2/3rds of the way through.
Ah, well, [I]Utena[/I] is written/directed by the director of the first five seasons of [I]Sailor Moon[/I].
Also, [I]Sailor Moon[/I] is getting a new anime adaptation, for some reason.
Huh, had never even heard of that one. Neat!
For shorter stuff you should look into Miyazaki's movies ([I]Princess Mononoke, Kiki's Delivery Service, Laputa, Spirited Away[/I], etc.) 'cause they're gorgeously animated and lots of fun to watch.
Angels...I can think of two off the top of my head (not counting ones with "angel" in the title that lack any actual angels):
[I]D. N. Angel[/I], which I don't know a huge amount about (kid is a thief and ends up posessed by an angel. He's in love with one girl, who is in love with his angel alter-ego, who is in turn in love with the girl's sister, who is in love with the non-posessed kid).
[I]Haibane Renmei[/I], which is about a girl who wakes up inside a cocoon with amnesia. She turns out to be in a fairly normal town, only where some of the residents have wings and halos and who have various restrictions placed on what they can do. Very slow-paced.
Out of curiosity, what anime, if any, have you seen?
You are indeed terrible and should go sit in a corner and cry.
I know this feel. People who spread white supremacy in the name of the Asatru and misuse symbolism, [I]makes me physically ill.[/I] Like...omg. (Thats actually A Problem(tm) with the faith im involved in and most modern heathens just dont tolerate it. But thats what makes it into the media and ewww ewwww ewwww. RAGE!)
I have a [I]problem[/I] with religious intolerance of any sort. *glares at ISIS* So im not gonna put up with it on any angle.
If you want to check out [I]Utena[/I] then you can get the entire series (36-ish episodes) in very very nice box sets ([url=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004S7G6A4/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p74_d6_i3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1898QJEQHRJZXQZS5EV8&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846]first[/url], [url=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004YCKK28/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p74_d6_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1898QJEQHRJZXQZS5EV8&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846]second[/url], [url=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005I4HO66/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p74_d6_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1898QJEQHRJZXQZS5EV8&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846]third[/url]) with remastered animation and art books and such for not all that much (the complete set will apparently set you back $100-and-a-bit) and you can get all of [I]Princess Tutu[/I] [url=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005DR64QY/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p74_d6_i4?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1898QJEQHRJZXQZS5EV8&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846]for $30 or so[/url].
The localizer of [I]Utena[/I] has also [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TQFlVcPyUA]put the first couple of episodes up on YouTube[/url] (they seem to have both sub and dub. I don't know anything about the quality of the dub, being generally a sub person) so you can get a feel for it.
See, I'm, like, [I]the[/I] drug dealer for artistic anime. You may never have any free time ever again.
WE'Z GOTTA STICK TOGETHER IN THE FACE OF NEGATIVE NANCIES!
[I]Princess Tutu[/I] definitely wins the "So much better than the name makes it sound" award. It's also fairly short, with the two seasons totaling 26 episodes.
Its whole basis is German fairy tales and ballet, combined with lots of fourth-wall breaking stuff, all woven together in unexpected ways.
[I]Utena[/I] is...is...um...It takes an in-depth (albeit largely allegorical) look at teenage romance and relationships and dresses all that up in chivalric sword fighting. It's older, so doesn't look as good as some more modern stuff, and it's aggressively weird (though most of the weird is actually metaphorical). It also doesn't sugar-coat anything, with every relationship it looks at being flawed in some way and with characters manipulating and betraying each other all the time. That said, it also has lots of humour (the final 1/3rd features lots of incredibly bishonen men posing shirtless on sports cars in incredibly over-the-top ways for no actual reason, fer example), and does lots of mood whiplash.
It's a classic for a reason. Very good; Exceedingly unique.
Not really comedies, but you might like [I]Princess Tutu[/I] and [I]Revolutionary Girl Utena[/I]. [I]Princess Tutu[/I]'s first season is not-bad, but it's its second season where it gets really good. [I]Utena[/I] is...it's a thing. An excellent thing, but also a very weird thing.
Hahahaha, Breeze u cray.
Just get drunk then, because everything tastes great when drunk.
I will need to find it at some point.
Wait, why did you get free ice cream for that?
Yeah the ice cream isn't too good, but it's free. And I'm willing to be less judgmental of free stuff.
Yeah. I had a rocky road in Sweden and I think they used hazelnuts? It's more of a Swedish thing (the hazelnuts) I think but daaaamn was it delicious. Don't think we have a Thrifty's here D:
But you know what the best kind of ice cream is?
FREE ICE CREAM.
I don't know if you have Jason's Deli out there, but we have it here and they have free ice cream for their customers. Best thing ever.
Oh yesss yes. Rocky Road? I mean I love chocolate as a base but if you add stuff to it it just gets amazing.
I don't like fruitier stuff as much (i.e. strawberry) but chocolate is the gift of the gods.
I think all people do. Anyone who doesn't is alien.
What is your FAVOURITE FLAVOR FLAV?
Breeze Wheeze Ice Cream Supreme.
IT HAS BEEN DONE
It's pretty fun. I've revived the Zelda Universe Challenge Quiz, and it should be fun.
That's pretty awesome. I've just recently become a Community Coordinator.
How long did you moderate those sections?
I'm great. Yourself? And weren't you a moderator at one point?
