Yeah, I always kind of meant to watch .hack//SIGN, but I didn't get around to it at the time and heard it feels a little dated watching it now, so Shrug

It might feel a little dated, but the soundtrack was good and the "mystery" of it and how IRL was portrayed compared to the online space is still a really great way to do it.

Angolmois 1 seems like about exactly what I expected it to be, which is pretty much a good thing. If it doesn't land up being too much for me to keep up with, and it keeps being good, I'll keep watching.

Girls and their porn folders and staying up all night gaming, eh? :p

Probably a little less quick to admit to their porn folders, at any rate Uh-oh

Angolmois 2

Spoiler:

-Cool, I didn't know that Angolmois was referring to Nostradamus's prediction of the king who destroys the world, I was wondering what it meant. But I don't really get how they're trying to make it apply to the events of this show, since the Mongol invasions of Japan were in the late 1200s and Nostradamus wasn't born until 1503??! Unless it was some kind of retroactive prediction, which is usually called "history." Lurking/sketchy
-"what do you know, exile?" "Nothing. Except whether we're going to win or lose." That was a pretty badass answer, even if it gets him thrown out.
-the scene of all the locals in the market gathered round to help him get a picture of Tsushima's geography, and they've never seen it as a whole picture like that before. I like that they're being true to how big distances were and maps/geographical knowledge could be so limited and local and crucial, the way geography is important and somewhat obscure knowledge but also everyday life's experience and how the two fit together and how critical it all is to understanding how things are and what might happen
-the villagers' fears in contrast to the over-confident nobles just playing around
-his expression when he hears the sword was Minamoto Yoshitsune's
-7 days is a pretty long time to fight Mongols
-"Now I have to count on something I know I can't count on."
-ringing the massive bell
-All the info that Kuchii gets just from seeing the Mongol forces shoot a single volley of arrows
-it's disappointing seeing Mongol soldiers dropping from a single arrow, I guess the rank and file in a distant navy invasion don't get the badass silk shirts (or horses, for that matter) Sad Though I guess I'm not supposed to be rooting for them anyway Uh-oh
-BOMBS! (thanks, Obama China!)
-the old noble's body held aloft by the dozens of spears stabbing him right through

The characters are pretty generic in this so far, but I'm enjoying the historical/battle part.

If you cut her, snark bleeds out rofl

-"Now I have to count on something I know I can't count on."

Spoiler:

It just occurred to me that he could be completely lying but knows that the only way to buy time for everyone else is to have a dedicated defense of Tsushima and this is probably the only guy who could do it.

Angolmois 3

Spoiler:

-He's got the horses, and an actual plan!
-Princess came prepared for her father's death and ready to fight
-his grin while in the thick of the enemy troops
-shield-jumping Shiny/thrilled
-who is that?? (and what the fuck is the woman wearing?)
-that much risk to retrieve the lords' heads. Though, it really would be demoralizing to go out and face your leader's decapitated heads staring you down on your enemy's spears
-I like the little wildcats that keep running about
-I wouldn't have thought multiple wives would still be happening much in this time period, I wonder how accurate this is
-his family died while he was gone so it doesn't feel that they're dead
-gorilla guerilla fighting Nod
-the peasants joining the fight
-you'd think after the last battle the nobles would be at least starting to try and work together with the exiles, I'm finding the whole prideful nobles and arrogant but feisty tsundere princess is a little too cartoonish and overdone
-His cornered rat line was pretty badass, though
-"hmm, should I kill him or kiss him?" Yawn, maybe just skip it and let him fight the damn Mongols like you wanted him to do? Neutral
-I wrote out the exact quote and reaction about the watchman getting shot and then realized you'd already said it.
-BETRAYAL!!  

I'm finding the character stuff pretty cliched, I wish they'd stick to the fighting and strategy and badass lines more.

Chio-chan 5

Spoiler:

-her have-to-pee walk Laughing
-chipping away at her sanity points
-pee dripping into the toilet with a soft-focus, heavenly light and the expression of pure relief on her face rofl
-and then she realizes it's the men's toilet
-I full-body cringed when she sat down on the public toilet seat in her clothes Ewwww!
-WASH YOUR HANDS!!!
-the heroic fantasy music (didn't know it was from Naruto but it still got the message across) and chakras and REAL WALL HACK to safely get out of the men's room rofl
-SHE STRANGLES A DUDE WITH A HOSE-PIPE AND STEALS HIS CLOTHES JUST TO GET OUT OF THE FUCKING MEN'S ROOM rofl rofl rofl
-okay, thinks about doing it at least
-trap activated Laughing
-the trap is fake piss all over the floor rofl
-throwing I'm guessing urinal cakes? that somehow magically attracts a cat that attracts the girls in mini-skirts and causes the guys to stare so she can fling herself out the window unnoticed Laughing
-her entire ass waggling around right beside the face of the guy trying to catch a peek under the girls' skirts rofl
-she's saying she's stuck but you can clearly see the window frame is wide open all around her, they needed to make that a wayyyy smaller window, or put something for her to get stuck on /nitpick
-dives right into the scene and pretends it's her cat
-they're keeping the urinal cakes rofl
-the teacher's face when he realizes what the 'weird toy' Chio brought to school is
-Chio and Manana starting a random flower-whip vs. stick with plants on it fight right while the student is admiring how students from her school behave so properly, and then Manana drinks all the water in front of Chio and pours out the rest just to be mean
-"only those you can face hardships with, who will have your back in life or death situ-" "um, you don't have any friends, do you, Sempai?" rofl I love Manana
-the double magic power move with dragons in the background to introduce their proof of friendship
-and then they do a stupid friendship dance with meowing and arm-flapping they made up for gym class and it goes on and on and on, I have actual tears in my eyes (and then I accidentally wrote 'in my ears' instead of 'eyes')
-she has tears in her eyes too but not from laughing
-and they slink off awkwardly
-oh god, they're giving a middle-schooler advice to pursue the teacher because it's the teacher who'll get in trouble if anything happens, what the fuck, Manana

This show's so ridiculous, but at the same time I relate to the characters way more than any more normal show in some ways, they're so much more like real people being stupid and embarrassing and terrible human beings, and their friendship hits some button that most fictional friendships don't in the way you know why they're friends because they feed into each other's weirdness

Angolmois 4
Spoiler:

-the tear trickling down the guy's face, and then just the sound of his body hitting the floor
-Pointy-teeth catches an arrow in his fucking teeth and bites it off before just slashing through the entire shield wall and everyone in it, the Mongols probably shouldn't have broken his bottle Uh-oh
-The commander accurately estimates the number of attackers just from the sound
-Kuchii thinks of the man who betrayed them saying his wife and child's names with his dying breath, and gives the order to retreat instead of saving the hostages :/
-mysterious mountain allies!
-"If you are worthy, perhaps you'll see them someday." Iiiinteresting.
-Faced with the scary Mongol Vice-Marshal, Pointy-teeth picks his nose Laughing
-Vice-Marshal furious at Kuchii stopping his kill, calling him a weed not knowing he's the wolf he's looking for until he cuts off his hair Shiny/thrilled
-matching scars, now they can be best nemeses!
-they way they just show the Marshal one feature at at time, never the whole person; wide-open eyes in the darkness, a too-wide smile Nod
-here, Princess, let me pull down your kimono and slap some spit-grass on you
-their romance is suuuuuuuper-boring
-giving the kid being bullied his traitor father's katana and telling him he was brave, and giving him something to fight for by telling him to take his revenge someday. Heartwarming, in a fucked-up way. But I do love a good 'respect for one's enemies and appreciating the tragedy of having to kill each other' thing.
-smoke rising as they approach the capital, that's not good
-yep, it's completely in flames

Japanese revenge-honour is so hardcore. I remember an episode of Gatchaman (sorta 1960s Power Rangers) where some girl's scientist dad got killed by the bad guys, she was along on whatever mission to get those bad guys, the Gatchaman Phoenix mech had them lined up with their missiles, Ken the Eagle told her to press the button to take revenge for her father, she froze, he grabs her hand and mashes it down on the button, firing the missiles and killing the bad guys, she collapses in a sobbing heap and Ken the Eagle solemnly and firmly told her that now her father and her ancestors can rest easy because she's avenged them. I was sitting there going like "THIS WAS A CHILDREN'S SHOW, WHERE'S THE LESSON THAT REVENGE ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING, WHAT THE FUCK JAPAN?"

Shit's pretty awesome tbh Lurking/sketchy

Spoiler:

- RIP Granny Sad
- Cool, a fight on a cliff corner
- "I came by to learn some shogi" as his face is covered in blood Shiny/thrilled
- Man, they even show the old dude's head just plopping off.
- OLD-TIME GRENADES
- "Is anyone here?" *slices through neck*
- "A general doesn't worry about the meaning of a battle in the middle of a fight. That's the job of a poet." Nod

I love the setting and the action and the tactics but often at a loss for comments, I'm finding it easy to enjoy the show but don't really feel the need to comment on a lot Laughing

EB. One Piece

Continuing 1. My Hero Academia Season 3
C2. Captain Tsubasa 2018
C3. Layton Mystery Detective Agency

1. Black Clover (Continuing but not listed)
2. Shingeki No Kyojin/Attack on Titan Season 3
3. Gegege no Kitarou (Continuing)
4. Chio-chan (Weird Hilarious adventures walking to school)
5. Angolmais (MONGOLS)
6. High Score Girl (1990s Japanese arcade scene)
7. Seven Sense of the ReUnion (Online MMO where a dead girl is somehow still alive)
8. Tsukomogami Kashimasu (Spirit Objects)
9. Sirius The Jaeger (Vampire Shit)
9. Muhyo to Roshi (Exorcism Detectives)

Dropped Sirius the Jaeger for Muhyo to Roshi, which I guess started last week. Sirius was well-animated, good sound effects, good action, but nothing happening when action wasn't going on. Muhyo to Roshi has a lesser style and animation but has more yokai excorcism/story stuff that I like instead.
