    A 12 hour sex marathon, according to Momoka? Huh.

    TL;DR:
    spend a couple days/week learning hiragana/katakana
    use one of the many resources for learning grammar
    use one of the many guides for learning kanji (some go radicals, others mnemonics, others vocab)
    use anki for vocab/kanji
    lots of reading practice

    Just keep with it and don't be a lazy bastard like some people (me).

I don't want to say my my gripe because it'd be a big spoiler... what episode are you on?
    I don't think much of TTGL myself. It has some good parts (Kamina actually dying and the later revolt against the government), but ultimately it relies on raw excess to carry it. Excess emotion, excess manliness, excess scale of events. The fact that it is so shamelessly excessive holds an appeal to many people, but to me it seemed more like glitz designed to cover what was in actuality a pedestrian series.

    I'm still terrified it will be too short to cover everything sufficiently, but at least it's a longer movie.

    I disagree with your assessment. While I'll be honest I haven't seen the Japanese versions of Hellsing or Black Lagoon, I have a difficult time imagining how the Japanese of those series would be superior; to a native English speaker their use of accents and idioms makes them far better than the Japanese original. And this isn't even covering some of the gold standards of dubs such as Cowboy Bebop.

    I don't know what the series is about or what is supposed to be happening, but lying naked under the sky has a different feeling/implication than under a blanket. That said, I know that's not your main point anyway.

    It's from Cross Ange, and nudity definitely fits that situation well. I'm just complaining about the halfassed way that anime handled nudity in the "uncensored" version - to such extent that the censored version actually looks more natural. It's weird to see anime so shameless with its excessive fanservice shy from showing nipples in the BD release.

    I know I tend to binge watch shows. I get pretty turned off if things haven't notably progressed within the first few episodes. 3 for 13 episode seasons, 6 for 20+.
    I don't mind non action shows at all, just usually the synopsis of the story needs to sound interesting or the art needs to look good enough to get me to be more than just mildly interested.

    Fuuka seeing as truck-kun is around chapter 37, will they even get there? I can't imagine it being more then 12 episodes.
    Figures they would make the first image they show/link something out of character from most of the manga lol
    Will def be interesting in how they adapt it too, if they aren't fucking spot on with the music it's going to fail hard no matter what.

    Very good news

    I doubt I'll be able to read those SSY novels at a decent clip, but I really wanted them anyways just to have them.
    Recently during a sale I got all of the Sankarea manga, very happy with the purchase

    Which, amusingly, also features MC who gets revived after death.

    Well, I'm now officially unemployed. Have appointments and interviews already booked for later next week so I at least have some time to catch up on the animus.

    Also, on my way to work this morning, I went past a Mr. Mime and couldn't go get it. I feel like a tiny piece of me died inside.
