In high school, me and my friends were big into manga. I did a whole bunch of autistic shit and acted like a total prick to sound smarter than everyone else. For example, I called certain manga and characters by their romaji names, like Beruseruku and Gattsu, to sound more authentic.

Found out later that one of them was a lot more educated than me on the topic all along and he eventually called me out on ALL my bullshit in front of everyone else.

Well technical things like VA information and what anime they're in aren't really discussion of manga and anime.

I can never really understand the naming conventions that anime/japenese people have.
It seems that some times a character has 3 different names - First, last and nickname (or shortening). So I usually just name them something like 'wheelbarrow' or 'hairclip' or whatever.

Gattsu sounds cooler than Guts though.

That's a pretty good sell. I fully intend to watch and and already have the first season on my hard drive. I just haven't been in the right mood yet. Not sure when I will but I get the feeling nothing is going to compare and that's probably part of why I haven't yet.

Do you introduce yourself by your last name? Do you address similar age girls as Miss such and such? Honest questions, I don't, It didn't happen in school and now none of my work mates do either. I don't think anyone would recognise it if we were called by our middle names.
I don't think I've been addressed by my last name alone since I did cadets during school.

I'll get around to it eventually. Just from being here I've had the entire series spoiled already though.

>>100946114
because MMOs are only fun in concept, in execution it is the only game genre that is objectively BAD, mostly due to tech limitations

I love couples in anime. I guess you could say I'm a shipper.

I still haven't seen LoGH because the length of it scares me off.

I hate all slice of life anime. If it's chill and relaxed, I'm going to hate it and stop watching. It bores me, and my mind wanders. I've never been able to finish a pure slice of life anime.

I also find anime comedy fucking terrible. It never makes me laugh. I laughed once - end of the first episode of that Daily Lives of Highschool Boys show - and that was it. I didn't even finish watching that show, and it was the one anime to make me laugh. So yeah, I can't watch comedy shows and I can't watch slice of life. I think with comedy, the disconnect comes from the cultural differences and mostly the language. It's a hell of a lot funnier if I'm not reading subtitles to find out the joke.

Since there's a bit of MMO talk in here:

I had a problem. I possibly still do have a problem. I've been addicted for upwards of 8 years to an MMO. That's off and on. I would stop playing, then it would drag me back in. Every single fucking time. And it sucks the life out of me. I've quit for about 3 months now, hopefully it doesn't drag me back in again.

I've forgotten more anime than the majority of the world has seen. Unfortunately, I never watch anime as it comes out, instead watch anime in marathons after an entire season has aired.

if you weren't hooked by the first episode, then you probably won't like it.

I have a problem with getting interested in many shows, but only feel like following one or two shows weekly each season. I tell myself to marathon the other shows when the season ends, but when the new season starts the shows feel old to me and I get interested in the new shows for the next season instead and they end up in my already enormous backlog.

for me it's: "just watch it for the mecha /a/non!"
fuck that, the knightframes are the most boring and uninspired mecha design i've ever seen even Boss Borot looks cooler
also the politics aspect are kinda lame and sort of added for serious plot reason only.
