Oh my God.

The New Testament of Sister New Devil... What the fuck did I watch D:

Like, it was manageable at first, but episode three... Nah, that's too much. But I can understand why some people would like it, because it's literally porn.

I think I'll just stick with Kuroku this season.

The series is very much focused on its erotic aspects.

I literally forced myself through vol 1, and discarded both it and vol 2.

I never read vol 2.

Glad I decided against that series.  I love sweetARMS, but not even they can make me watch porn.  But the BD releases with have "extra content." ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

 

SO far I am really enjoying:

Kantai Collection

Absolute Duo

Yuri Kuma Arashi

The Rolling Girls

Koufuku Graffiti 

Assassination Classroom

Death Parade

Saenai Heroine 

Durarara!!x2

Aldnoah Zero

 

And continuing from last season:

Parasyte

Shigatsu

Seven Deadly Sins

Cross Ange

Log Horizon 2

 

So 15 shows so far.  Not a bad haul for the season of sequels.  Also picking up the Blade Dance novels since most, if not all are translated into English. Any advice on picking up Japanese, Story?  Any learning software you could recommend?  I would like to pick it up along with German and Spanish.

But you played Grisaia, right?

Won't read/watch porn but will play Adult VNs.

I mean, I'm more or less the same way, but just thought it was rather weird how it works out like that.

 

Asking a semi-native Japanese speaker for Japanese-learning software is probably not the best idea.

The only one I even know of is Rosetta Stone, and I've heard mixed review about it.

I generally just hold down the enter button and skip through the H-scenes.  Did the same thing with Fate/Stay Night.  The H-scenes just took away from the story IMO.  

 

And I was just wondering what you considered the best way to learn.  I was looking at Rosetta Stone, but that gets really expensive really quick.

Agreed! They are by far the least interesting part of a VN.

 

Yeah, sorry, not going to be much help to you.

I'm sure you can find some free materials online, and if you ever need help, I'd be willing, but as far as actual programs go, I have no clue.

I'm not really watching too many shows at the moment.

 

Log Horizon 2, Parasyte and Your Lie In April are carried on from last season. Dragon Ball Kai 2014 and Yugioh Arc-V are continued as well.

 

Aside from that, Kuroku's Basketball 3 and World Break are the only ones I'm watching from this season. I tried a few others but just couldn't get into them. And I don't even get World Break.

 

Yugioh Arc-V is quickly making its name as the best Yugioh series, in my opinion. The original Yugioh was great, but only as a kid. It actually makes no sense and the pacing was soooo sloooow. GX was my favourite, but started off quite badly. Plus there were so many irrelevant duellists. 5Ds was more serious and the duelling was much better, but I didn't really watch it. ZeXaL was just awful. I tried my best but it was so childish. But Arc-V has seriously improved. All the duellists seem competent, and you never know if you'll be seeing Fusion, Synchro or Xyz, which is actually really awesome. Maybe you'll see a mix of them as well. Considering the cards are being released alongside current sets shows that the cards in the anime are actually good enough for real life. Yeah, sometimes you get stupid situations where some character negates effect damage or something, but that's really it.  Akaba Reiji is a boss, too.

 

It's still quite childish though, and some characters are annoying, but the duels themselves are actually fun to watch. That's the most important part, in my opinion.

Resurrection time! Cause I need to pass the time somehow...

 

Is it me or is Mai Kawakami from Myriad Colors Phantom World the best-looking anime character of all time?

Haikyuu and Arc V are still my favourite airing shows.

I also finally finished watching Yamada and the Seven Witches and My Love Story. Both were pretty fun. My Love Story was better.

And this season, I'm already quite into Aokana: Four Rhythm Across the Blue.

I'm also watching Durarara for the first time. It's a work of art, although since they changed the opening theme I haven't been as hooked.

I'm guessing you're referring to the sequels with the latter bit?

Not 100% sure. I'm on like episode 18. I don't know if that's season 1 or 2.

Newest show I've started watching is Erased. Cool premise and looks really promising from the first two episodes.

Erased sucks. In a really good way. Why are they forcing me to live through these cliffhangers... My heart can't take much more.

And finally caught up with Durarara!!, so it'll be interesting to see where that takes us.
