Oh, well they dick around a little more and then find some abandoned hostile and go inside. Nothing really spoilerish in there. I actually stopped watching the episode at this point, and I doubt I was more than 10 minutes through.

Unless you're devastated to learn this from me before watching them locate a building...in which case sorry.

My laptop fried itself a couple months ago. Most of the stuff was synced to the other computers in my house, so I didn't lose important stuff, but the pictures folder wasn't synced. I've basically stopped using the default picture folder since then in case something like that happens again.

We have a virtual back up, and I might be able to salvage stuff by downloading pictures one at a time, but I haven't tried, and it'd probably be a lot of work.

I have a grand total of six Selim pictures at the moment, 53 of Armin.

Alright then.

Most of my free time is, in fact, spent on the computer. I got into anime in 8th grade because of Naruto and expanded from there. FMA:B was one of the ones I saw early on, but it's still my favorite, and I own the whole manga series. Since I joined the board, I've been watching a lot more. I'm a junior in high school this year; my older brother is in college and my younger brother is in middle school, but neither of them watches anime. I'm on my school's tennis team; I'm in charge of a club at school called philosophiles (which I did not name, because the name sounds a little creepy.) I'm also in math league, science league, German and Chinese club, and I'm on the staff of our literary magazine Opus. I enjoy writing, with some dabbling in fanfiction, but I haven't written much of anything for any anime.

How about you? You want to tell me about yourself?

Then boring answer time!   
   
Infinity isn't a defined value yadda yadda yadda so attempting to add a defined and undefined value can't logically be done yadda yadda yadda like asking the value of 1/0 + 1. Without a value for 1/0 yadda yadda there's no point in making any changes with a definite value.   
   
Which reminds me I have to do math homework.   
   
Cool. lets do sum fuk.

Perfect! you'll be busy studying.

I thought Yasuna was a guy first, and now i'm attached to her, not my fault.
#44 to #43 - phantomrose (11/09/2012) [-]
You could probably pass her off as either (provided the person you're talking to doesn't recognize her) because she is pretty androgynous. If not, there's no shame in having a female mascot.

Btw, I've never lost a game of raep. It's not raep if you enjoy it.
#45 to #44 - acaivy (11/09/2012) [-]
She wears a skirt. And i don't even know why i like her, maybe because she's androgynous.

But girls don't raep haha.

1. I could've sworn I had added you by the time you wrote down the FMA episodes I should watch. Heads up on that: I'll just watch the whole series.

2. You're a girl? Why didnt I notice this?
#19 to #18 - phantomrose (10/29/2012) [-]
1. Cool! It won't be as good as Brotherhood, but it is by no means a bad series. I thought it was pretty awesome.

2. Totally fine. My mascot's male, so it's a little counter intuitive. Also, I figure most people don't know--and honestly it's not something I really care about. We're discussing anime and manga, so it's not like gender plays a big role, and Funnyjunk gets a stick its ass from time to time about girls on the site, so I've just kept myself separate from any of the shitstorming. I've never seen it happen on /anime/, but there are too many attention whores out there already. I'd rather just have people make judgements based on what I post and what not, gender aside.

Shit that sounds cheesy. Sorry.
#20 to #19 - sergejkarkarov (10/29/2012) [-]
1. I'm on episode 8, and I already think their version of the State Alchemist Exam was way better, and the Nina-feel-episodes were more developed. I expect it to be a good series, up to the point where they fuck up the homunculi.   
   
2. It's alright, I'm not prejudiced against it or anything, I just noticed it. And I really dont see why that's cheesy.

#21 to #20 - phantomrose (10/29/2012) [-]
Yeah, the earlier episodes of FMA had filler, but it's the only series I can think of which had enjoyable filler. I definitely thought the Nina bit was feelier since they spent so much time building up her character. Brotherhood's biggest shortcoming is rushing those episodes. Same with the state alchemist exam.

Episode 9 is a great episode. (I'm sure I mentioned this already) but it's in the manga, and pretty freaking awesome. It's still one of my favorite FMA episodes, maybe including Brotherhood.
#22 to #21 - sergejkarkarov (10/29/2012) [-]
I dont think they were rushed, I think they were trying to stay very close to the manga, and they did, except for the beginning.   
   
I'm not there yet, but as far as I remember that's the episode where that one guy is introduced, I forgot his name...

#23 to #22 - phantomrose (10/29/2012) [-]
It's actually a little more rushed than it appears which I guess it a good thing. They cut out two whole mini arcs--robbery on the train and the up coming episode 9. Also, the Brotherhood version of the Greed arc is very condensed. Ed's supposed to be away, Izumi is supposed to leave then come back to Greed's lair, Al has a whole, bad ass scene where he out maneuvers Greed's chimeras for a while, and Bradley is supposed to have a bigger role (involving screen time with Ed while Ed is away.)

Aside from that, episode two skips over some conversation between Mustang and Hawkeye, (including the fact that they had gone to Resembool to recruit the Elric brothers, ages 40 and 41--the carriage driver quickly corrects them that Al and Ed are, in fact, 10 and 11. Mustang was not pleased.) Still, I guess these could be seen as picky differences. Didn't really take away from the story.

And yes, Yoki is introduced here!
#24 to #23 - sergejkarkarov (10/29/2012) [-]
*31 and 30, I just read that in my manga.

I hadn't before, but I just googled it. I like what I see--I really like it.

I've never been more certain than I am now that Danny Phantom would be an awesome anime.
#13 to #12 - sircool (10/24/2012) [-]
well, if you liked that check out these two links to two of his comics.

PPG focused one:
ppg.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=0

grim adventures focused one:
grim.snafu-comics.com/?comic_id=0

both have an ungodly amount of references to other shows, but they are blended in so well. I think you'd enjoy the grim one a little more, since clockwork and the evil future danny are kinda main characters.

Side note: If you want to keep the PPG one a happy story, don't read too much of the grim tales one.
#14 to #13 - phantomrose (10/24/2012) [-]
Thanks!

Who ever said I like happy?
#15 to #14 - sircool (10/24/2012) [-]
we'll i'm just saying if you had my tastes. I'm a sucker for a romance plot thats in taste, and this guy did it with the blossom x dexter thing. then it's sort've shot in grim tales.
#16 to #15 - phantomrose (10/24/2012) [-]
I see. I'm going to assume right now your mascot comes from this comic, no?

I do like romance, but I love off the wall angst even more. So by ruining that 'happy' aspect of the PPG story, I assumed you meant Grim Tales had a massive amount of PPG angst.
#17 to #16 - sircool (10/24/2012) [-]
actually, both take place in the same world, only grim tales in the far future. and by sad, i mean fucks up everything. mfw in my mind when i found out what happens, but still no answer as to how.

and yes, my mascot (whom today I just choose to use as reaction pics) is from the comic. Dexter, infact.

No problem, I love passing on the knowledge of a great series, and I'm glad to hear you survived the feels of that awesome show. I've never felt as much as I did from Clannad for oh so many reasons.
User avatar #3 to #2 - lizzarro (07/24/2012) [-]
I'm still trying to sort out the ending to afterstory though. I think I have a vague grasp of it but I'm still scratching my head.
User avatar #4 to #3 - phantomrose (07/24/2012) [-]
Yeah, it's a bit of a head scratcher. I do have to give them credit that it wasn't something they made up on spot, because the "ended world" and the myth about the lights had been going on for the whole series, so they planned that.

I can better understand WHY they ended it like they did, because Clannad is based on an interactive manga where you play as Tomoya and chose actions that lead down certain routes. In the manga version, you can actually chose any of his love interests, but if you go down the "Nagisa" route, you can get a couple endings. In one of them, Nagisa dies in childbirth just like the route in the series. In another ending, Nagisa survives and they have a happy life like in the final episodes. In the show Kotomi talked about "parallel universes" that her super-smart parents had been researching, and I figure that is the in-series version of these different routes. So in one universe, Tomoya watched Nagisa die beside him, spent five years in utter misery, and reconnected with Ushio just in time to see her die; in another, he lived a happy life as a father and husband. Given that there is a mesh of alternate universes and the myth about the wish-granting light, I feel almost like Tomoya built up enough "credit" (helping so many people find happiness through his selflessness, and therefore seeing the orbs of light) for his wish of living a happy life with his wife and child to be granted. Therefore, he was brought to the parallel universe where he could live out his wish.

Even if it's a bit contrived, I really like the ending. I can sleep better at night that way. If it ended with Ushio's death, I don't think I'd have gotten out of bed for a week.

Apologies for the long post...
User avatar #5 to #4 - lizzarro (07/24/2012) [-]
That does make more sense than anything I've really come across. The episode "Summary Under the Green Tree" kind of haphazardly sums up the series but it still left me confused.

Nagisa's death really didn't affect me as much as I thought it would, mainly because it was something they built up towards. However, I freaking lost it when Ushio just collapsed there in Tomoya's arms. Personally though, at the end of the original series I wasn't sure I liked Nagisa being Tomoyo's love interest. I actually liked the "alternate" Tomoya episode better (maybe because that's what I relate to most). I even liked the alternate Kyou chapter better. Maybe that's just the easy way out of all the feels.

*shrug* I still enjoyed the series immensely.
User avatar #6 to #5 - phantomrose (07/24/2012) [-]
Personally I think I cried more over Nagisa's death (which is saying a lot, because I cried like a bitch over little Ushio), but actually the reason for that is because I DIDN'T see Nagisa's death coming.

I don't care much for shipping, and I don't really mind if people like different ships more than the ones I like, so I respect that you like Kyou and Tomoyo. However, I will say NagisaxTomoya was the first ship I ever truly adored. I get why some people wouldn't like it, but I adore the mutual bettering of each other that went on. I love Tomoya helping Nagisa gain her confidence, and Nagisa giving Tomoya a reason to go on day by day. So her death really got to me.

Going into Clannad, I knew that it supposedly had a lot of feels, they were mostly in "Afterstory", and it was something about the main character and his child connecting. (I had seen the jpeg of Tomoya and Ushio hugging in the flowers). I never heard anything about the mother. It took a couple days to watch all of Afterstory, (so the comic kind of lies there) and I stopped for the night after we learn Nagisa's pregnant. It occured to me the next day that I hadn't seen any pictures or discussion of Nagisa with Ushio, and I thought, "Hm, what if she doesn't survive?" But I brushed it off, because I had no real evidence to support it. When it did happen though, crap I just broke down, because I really really didn't think they were going to do it.

I was in tears for three straight episodes after her death, because all the happiness I felt for Tomoya finding a reason to live, and the whole "life isn't as bad as I thought" feel-good attitude they built up just got shattered.

But damn, I cried like a baby over Ushio's death too, because (again) I didn't expect them to kill her off right then and there. What monster has a five year old die in the snow like that?

Just EVERYTHING about that series got me...The feels are potentially lethal.

Shipping? I'm not quite familiar with that term, I mean I gathered context clues and everything but that's still the first I've heard of it. I downloaded both series as well as the motion picture and the alternate episodes were in there as well. Don't get me wrong I loved the main series but it was just so damn hard not to think of Nagisa as so much younger than Tomoyo even though she is older than him. I'm just sort of split about how I feel overall.

I agree though, after Nagisa's death I felt terrible for Tomoyo in the 5 years after just sort of living on a hollow life. I had figured something would happen to Nagisa when they started talking about the complications in her pregnancy.

Still, after Tomoyo started to reconnect with Ushio I thought that the bad feels were finally over and these were all going to be feely feels and that Tomoyo is going to raise Ushio. I couldn't finish the episode with Ushio's death in one sitting. I paused it and left the room because all those good feels they built up over the last 3 episodes they just strip away.

All that said the overall catharsis effect of watching it is really soothing in the end. Like all that emotion just leaves you feeling all smooth (pic related). I'd be lying if I said I haven't been humming "Big Dango Family" since I started the series.

Shipping is essentially supporting a pairing (whether it happens or not) in a show/book/whatever. As in, "I ship Tomoya and Nagisa" or "I ship Ty Lee and Sokka" (I don't actually, just an example for the picture). Usually these things can break down into huge shitstorms between people who are REALLY into shipping (I remember many a storm between "Kataang" shippers and "Zutara" shippers at the end of the series.) Usually I'm just fine with whatever shipping the creators chose for a series, but TomoyaxNagisa was the first pairing I really FELT for.

But the ending...wow. It takes a lot for a series to build up so much love and hope in its plot, just to rip it all away in a few minutes. But to do it TWICE. with the SAME character. God, poor Tomoya...I can't even.

The catharsis is beautiful in this series. I'll admit I have a total soft spot for super-tragedy in a show, the more suffering the better, because the emotions make me feel pretty hard. I've seen plenty of shows where the back story is, "I have no mom--she died when I was young." And it makes me feel bad for the character, especially if they have flashbacks to the diceased/missing mother (Katara*cough*Zuko*cough*Sokka*cough*). But Clannad didn't just make me feel, it made me UNDERSTAND. I mean, there's only so much emotional connection and understanding you can put into a 1-2 episode backstory. They built 2 whole seasons on the hope and love between these two characters, that when they went into "backstory mode" with Ushio asking about Nagisa on the train, I UNDERSTOOD (and of course broke down sobbing when Tomoya teared up). That's what makes Clannad the master of feels.

...Now you've got me humming it too...god dammit

ah, ok, I remember the whole "who-Katara-should-have-ended-up-with" fiasco. I've just never heard the term shipping that I can remember (key word being remember). Don't get me wrong, after watching the entire second season and seeing things unfold the way they did I'm not sure I would change a thing. The whole relationship triad was just an errant thought.

Btw...
