    I usually use the scanlations, but if there are some manga out there that I can buy, like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei or Omamori Himari, I'll buy it. I usually have up all the change I get some errands buying stuff for my parents. Which reminds me, I still have to get the other two volumes of Another. Buying manga in Japanese that I can barely read. *shrugs*, it is good to have something physical.

    I agree. I love actually having a book to read.

    The reason I don't like Ebooks, I'd rather have paper to touch. I only use an Ipad for manga cus it is portable.

    I personally hate Ebooks... Reminds me too much of Fahrenheit 451. Haha. And I'll have to start reading some when I have time. I'll probably pick it up over the summer when I'll have nothing to do.

    Speaking of Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury's grandson was in my mighschool. teddy. Boy he was a total Limp Prock/Asshole. Fun to mess with, even if he was two years older then me and my friends.

    On one hand, that's absolutely awesome, on the other, my meager faith in humanity is now gone.

    This is depressing. Very much so.

    On the bright side, YAY PEOPLE! I've been sitting on here for a couple of hours waiting on someone to show up! XD

    On the down side, I have to go to sleep. Q.Q
    I need mental function for tomorrow.

    I've watched over 350+ anime series and I'm pretty much the anime pro. Don't f*ckin step 2 me or u will get fu*kin wrecked, bro.

    In all seriousness though, I'm sitting next to my bookshelf of anime and I just might vomit from all the bad series that are on here. But I keep them there. For laughs.

    Also all of you should watch Nichijou, it's great.

    So, I just found this today. I've only really started it, but my mind has been fucked so many times, it's scary. I haven't finished it, so I can't really judge, but so far, it's been interesting.

    I got 3 or 4 chapters in, and I realized I was just going between pity and "what the fuck? Why?"

    The secret is that it is all pentatonic. The major pentatonic scale tends to mesh well with anything.

    Here's a few damn good fanfics I've read:

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5834947/1/Aeon_Entelechy_Evangelion

    (Neon Genesis Evangelion/Cthulhutech RPG cross over-Wierd anime with damn good tabletop game)

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3654039/1/Tiberium-Wars

    (Hands down, one of the BEST fanfics I have EVER read about ANYTHING. A C&C 3 fanfic, which is a incredible game that many RTSs should be judged by. The guy writing this is absolute gold. The one in a million fanfic author who is far better at what he writes than the official novelization, which I purchased, ever could be.)


    Meanwhile, here's a few really cool/interesting Youtube LP's or recordings that I like, including channels:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ2rhoUi1Bo&noredirect=1

    (By a guy named PrinceofMacedon, he is an arrogant, self-centered prick, and is also the finest player of the Total War series, by far, that I have ever seen. His annoying ego aside, he's an incredible resource for how to play the tactical side of the game and makes excellent recordings of multiplayer games. He has over 2000 Rome Total War recordings I think, and dozens of Empire and Medieval 2 recordings. He's entertaining as hell. )

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5z40IADwws

    (The only man who records Dune 2000 games that I have ever seen. No commentary, just pointless, 20min+ battles of win and awesome. Fun to watch, not too hard on download times, and he has over 100 videos I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of. And does many other games, but I haven't looked at those)

    http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?442845-In-defense-of-Freedom-a-USA-Kaiserreich-AAR

    (One of the Coolest and most entertaining AARs of any game I have ever read. It's about a Hearts of Iron 2 mod known as Kaiserreich. I've never played the game. No novel style, he just commentates on what he does each turn, is cool and in the spirit of things, and provides HUNDREDS of pictures giving a real feel and style to what you should be thinking about when reading it. LOTS AND LOTS of in game screen shots. Long, over 70 forum pages.)



    And yes, when not haunting the forums of Indie VNs, this is indeed what I do in my spare time. Comb the dusty halls of TvTropes for anything that looks even remotely interesting, illegally download it or find it in the internet, and enjoy it. Call me a lurker, 'cause it's what I most certainly am.
