Hi all, I paid the server bill for the month so the site can be archived, sorry for the mess, didn't realize there'd be such an uproar. The site's in read-only mode. Happy archiving. Here's a link to a user-made PULL discord server: https://discord.gg/vZFEm75
Rehabilitation is the best way to treat criminals in most cases, there's probably no limit to how severe the crime must be for them to not be eligible for it. When you fight with fire, only more evil and chaos are born out of it.
People on dating shows are among the most self-centered, arrogant assholes I've ever seen. Imo romance should never be a priority in a relationship. Trust and empathy always come first, romance can blossom later once the first two things have significantly developed. Relationship based on the need to be loved and lusted all the time is nothing but shallow, selfish and fragile. It's fake as hell. This is also why I can almost never get behind fandom ships where the main focus is how gay the characters are for each other. Ships are only interesting when they explore the dynamics between two characters and show their personal struggles that affect them to a certain degree AND the things they do to overcome them for each other's sake.
My interaction with fandoms has made me grow bitter and jaded towards people. I really, really hate double standards. One of the last straws was when I posted a fanart of unpopular male villain in a subreddit, then the first comments were all saying that they want to kill him. Can we please not do this shit? Take your hate elsewhere ffs. Fanart is created to celebrate a character, the artist puts in love and effort into it to draw a character they like. Insulting a character in a post that features said character in a positive manner is practically the same as insulting the author/artist. One of the things the Asian fandom does far better than the West is they know when to shut the fuck up if they have nothing nice or constructive to say. Even I can tell many Chinese fans dislike this character, yet they aren't so quick to lash out and are polite and constructive about it. God, sometimes I fucking hate how loudmouthed Westerners are.
While I know this sentence might actually be pretty innocent, when someone says 'x looks like a top tier waifu material' I can't help but think they sound like a creep with little interaction with real women. I wish we can we go back to an era where saying a character looks cute and hot is still the norm.
I have several complaints myself. The lack of character background for Cathy and Eddie is disappointing, especially the latter was quite interesting. The manga is by far still the best adaptation because of this, not to mention Episode.0 is a thing and highly recommended to anyone who enjoys the story. If there's anything they could have done more than a straight adaptation is to add bits of the prequel to explain several obscure plot points and character motivation, although that's tricky to do as it has nothing to do with the MCs and requires more episodes and that means higher budget. They also omitted the part where Zack explained his mother was the one who put him in that illegal orphanage, I thought it was kinda important.Danny's psychotic tendencies were overexaggerated at times, kinda gets annoying.
So far Magia Record anime doesn't feel like it urges you to play the game to understand the plot, rather it encourages you to play the game for liking the story and characters. For the most part, the anime did a good job at explaining various plot points without telling too much or too little. The game on the other hand, due to its medium has a tendency for excess of silly moments, flow of events coming roughly together or feeling abrupt and characters acting overly tropey because it's a gacha game. You're far better off following the anime and putting the game on hold.
Late to the party, but I legit enjoyed Satsuriku no Tenshi anime and it doesn't feel low-effort despite the visible limited budget. As someone who has watched the game playthrough many years ago and know the ending, the adaptation doesn't make me any less emotional about it. 8/10
...The way her right thigh reflects the light makes it look like it's made out of glass. Good thing she's sitting because there's no way she can stand with those thighs. The hair on the ground is poorly rendered too, in fact I'm not sure why Sakimi has the character sitting on top of it when the rest of her hair is behind her back, but it sure looks gross.
Sounds like the latter, combined with being extremely thin-skinned and an attention whore. She absolutely can't stand opposing stances that she uses every chance she gets to antagonize people instead of leaving them alone. When people call her out on it, she'll 'take a break' and superficially reinvent herself. She gets back to her old habits as soon as a group of people voice an opinion that opposes hers, rinse and repeat.
You’re missing the point here. Sakimi’s art has been getting objectively worse compared to her works from a few years ago. The wack anatomy is just one part of it, her skills have regressed in every way possible, whether it’s anatomy, coloring, pose, background, etc. Since she has an established style AND used her past works as a cover to promote her patreon, I think it’s more than fair for us to criticize her for it. Style is never an excuse for poorly drawn art, even more so when said artist has drawn professionally for a long time and possesses an extensive knowledge of drawing that is very apparent in her works, only to get rid of those in exchange of pumping out hentai anatomy pin-ups for a quick buck.
I’m pretty excited for the MagiReco anime, it looks like they’re putting more effort into it than your usual gacha game anime adaptation. Plus I gotta see Inu Curry’s art and Shaft’s animation, both are good combination.
The first pic's shading is very much unfinished that everything looks unreal, especially when you look at how the clothes press against the skin. Not sure what that string is than a random visual noise. I'm dying Tsuyu's gigantic lower half is much more noticeable when it's placed directly above her head, it's thrice the size of it. Ochako's hair shouldn't press against Tsuyu's boobs like that. What's with her hazy hair on the back? It looks like Sakimi's unfinished attempt at lengthening her hair that she forgot to crop out. There's no reason for Himiko to salivate against Ochako's side boob. Third pic is arguably better technique wise but dear Sakimi pussy juice doesn't work like that. The way the green-haired girl's hair falls is unnatural, her face looks extra hazy as well.
I know everyone has watched hentai and some of us enjoy it to a certain degree, but is this really necessary? Is being a hentai loving ethot a loveable quirk to Aria now?? At the very least she could have put it in DM or her private Discord, ugh.
