@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

Gintama (as if that wasn't obvious enough already). I'm fully caught up with the old episodes, so I must heatedly wait for the new ones.

Or rewatch it. I could do that, but I don't have very good history with rewatching anime.

I'm currently watching One Piece and I'm enjoying it. Naruto was good until it got REALLY complicated in Shippuden.

What is Samurai Champloo about?
Hey everyone! If you're a KH or FF fan, please come to Castle Oblivion to discuss things about them!

Literally just started Robotics:Notes

I wonder how it will turn out. I have the first 10 episodes downloaded, and have extremely slow internet here at home, so lets hope I don't enjoy it too much and watch all 10 too quickly and end up wanting more...

lol, that's some unfortunate logic you have to follow... "I hope I don't like it so I don't feel bad about not being able to get more quickly" XD

Fairy Tail will probably be on a break for some while (details are shady but it'll probably be back in a few weeks) SO I'll only be watching Naruto and One Piece for my weekly anime dose... it might be time to pick up something new though ._. so many suggestions have been given and yet when it comes down to it idk what I'd watch XD meh, if I really care I'll figure it out eventually

also I stopped watching Naruto SD: Lee Sidestory or whatever the crap it's called, it got too boring and repetitive :|

It is unfortunate haha, but nothing worse than watching something amazing, and not having the next episode to watch...

Fairy Tail were changing animation studio was it? Or did I mishear?

Definitely watch Fate/Zero. The first episode is all exposition and is an hour long, but don't let that colour your opinion of the show, it gets faster and better. The first episode is just for exposition and explaining the whole show.

oh gosh

then I'll need to watch it when I'm in a patient mood lol

there's also like Code Geass and a bunch of other bandwagon shows ><

With Fairy Tail, I didn't hear that, my understanding was that the anime is too close to the manga so they're taking a bit of a break and changing the TV schedule and just showing re-runs and the such, and that they'll be back in a month or a little later or something. Then again I didn't really do TOO much research, just a quick google search or two, I don't care all that much, though I kind of hope they don't change the animators since I like the animation style of Fairy Tail, it's kind of one of the few reasons I like it, the quality of the animations is high IMO compared to like... well, One Piece (those lazy freaking animators for OP, urgh >_<')

Thats why I never watched One Piece, when I saw the earliest incarnation of it with it's sluggish animation and pastel colouring. I vowed to never watch it.

I have only ever read the manga, and I own most of the books from 1 - 64 with a few gaps of about 20 books missing maybe. I love it, but could never watch it.

Code Geass is completely worth it as well, it's one of those shows where you'll watch 2 episodes thinking that will be enough, and then suddenly it's 4am and you've watched all 25 in one night...

WATCH CODE GEASS.

Right now, I'm watching Gundam SEED. Little over halfway through it, and I'm really enjoying it.

I think Angel Beats is a bit schyzophrenic when it comes to execution, half an episode spent on somebodies harrowing past, the other half spent trying to catch a giant fish.

Yeah, the pacing of the show was pretty bad. It was originally supposed to be a 26 episode series but it got cut in half. Still think the show is great though.

Hmm, It was meant to be 26 episodes eh? I didn't know that, I think that would have given the show the pacing it deserved, or it might have dragged it out too long. We'll never know. Either way, a fine show, the side characters made it, especially Tenshi, I really hated the main guy

I seem to hear rather inconsistent reports about the episode count.

Sometimes people say it was supposed to be 24, sometimes 26, some people claim there was no such initial plan, and I never bother to check.

I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

Psycho-pass.

Let's just say that three things sold me.
1) The fact that, once I'm done with it, I can claim I legally own it via ordering through Funimation (2014 sale date)
2) This post:
QUOTE (Seraphinox @ Mar 25 2013, 02:30 PM)
Psycho Pass
Genre: Crime, Psychological, Philosophical, Detective

Fascinating show that just finished airing a few days ago. Interesting plot with a lot to say about our perceptions of society and what we believe. Story revolves around a police unit in the future who are agents of Sybil, a system that uses scans and mental check-ups to determine whether people are dagerous to society or not. Things go tits-up when people who are unaffected by the judgings of Sybil show up and are seemingly immune to the law.

Go watch it

3) The fact that the development held 2 tenants clear to it, both of which I love: The outright refusal of use of moe as development and the close holding of psychological writers to it (one key writer worked in both Evangleion and Madoka. I haven't taken time to watch Madoka, but I know how key psychology is in both)

I finished it yesterday myself, I had no idea a key writer from Madoka/Eva worked on it, so thats where a lot of the Monologues come out of, I see the resemblance now, even in the overall themes. You already bought it via Funimation? Nice haha

Glad that my recommendation got somebody to watch it biggrin.gif

Haven't bought it yet, but today Funimation mentioned they'd sell it in NA in 2014. Because I, as someone who wants to stand on the side of companies, would require owning something if I see it, this is basically the green light for me.

Of course, yes, that does mean that I've already bought it...in the sense that the second I hit "play" on any video that my friends have sent me as a compilation of it, I'll be buying it.
