...As much as I would like to play Disgaea even once...
Seriously though, I'm hearing how comic books stores are shutting down or gonna be and that kinda scares me because comic books stores don't just have comic books to sell.
If this is truly as serious as people who actually care about the comic book stores think and say then this kinda worries me. Why? I honestly don't have much to say except I've only stepped into one once in my entire life.
Is there any way CB stores to survive even without CBs... I know this probably sounds stupid but..
I'd say if they don't need to pay for store rent, they probably can survive.
Aka going online.
Well, if you want the store to be open, I guess selling sode items? Here, most bookstore actually doubles as stationery stores, and in the past 2 (?) years books/novels sales are pretty much non-existent.
Sometimes I would look at novels if I go to a bookstore, but it seems it's just not popular anymore.
By comparison, I'd say the real solution is to attract more people to read.
In the course of my absence (or scarcity) , I lost all data to my FGO account. Had to uninstall it.
I then picked up Magia Record. Had to uninstall that one too in order to make room for a bank account app.
I lost these games but I gained something ultimately more important. Work experience. I now work in fast food hell and welcome it's meaty embrace. I started in October and I felt like ending myself at first (jokingt). I sucked it up and did it for the school fees I could use the money for. I ended up getting use to it all and having a loving and fun bunch of employees REALLY helped me stay in the job.
So yeah. Good bye Quetz. Good by Gorgon. Good bye Siegfried. Good bye Helena Blavatsky. And good bye my level 100 CuAlter... *cringes in terrible pain*
Damn that hurts. But hey, no pain no gain, right? Now hopefully I can get a better phone with even more space so I can eventually get back into FGO. Because there is NO DAMN WAY I'M MISSING A FREE CHRISTMAS QUETZ! HAPPY NEW YEAR YOU FOOLS!!! <D
Posting this before the day ends because MAN was it busy today at Wendy's.
Just want to say how thankful I am once again for finding this Wiki and it's community. For FINALLY getting a job (it's Wendy's) and learning that grinding working in fast food is no freaking joke. Sure, there are tougher jobs out there but this being one of the basic jobs that young kids can go for is pretty crazy, lol. But they need it and so do I.
Shoulda went job searching when I was 16 instead but I didn't know any better or my parents never urged it at that time.
But that doesn't matter anymore. Because now I'm here. 23 years old, employed, and attending college (in some sense). Found a volunteer job at my college and it somewhat relates to my major (digital media). Also found that there's a video game development club at my college and I finally have a place to introduce my card game idea (after cleaning it up some more). All I need to do now is take my drivers test late this month and pass it this time... And maybe I can finally say hey, things are finally really looking up for me.
Love you all and I hope this wiki continues on for a very long time.
I'm not even THAT far into fighting games in terms of skill and time investment. I even came upon this whole Evo event on the final day with the final Smash round and all... But thanks to a friend of mine, I've learned that this Evo may very well be one of the hypest Evo events known to toastkind...

Of course not all of these things showed up on evo all at once (I think it was a bit more spread out) but ME learning all of this in the span of one night was... NOT HEALTHY.
> The original series broke me and then taped me back together in an small way. I understand and accept Shinji and will try to learn from his mistakes. I love Kowaru, Rei, Asuka, and Misato all in that order. I also love and understand almost all of the other Nerv characters within the series. Not so much Ritsuko though. I understand her (somewhat?) but she is too cold and dumb. But at the same time I think I dislike her because I might be a small mirror of her in some aspects. Kaji is like a more beastial Kowaru to Misato and practically every grown woman's Shinji in some weird way. I love hime because he seems to be the only one (along with some others) who has his core values in check and isn't depressed or crazy. Or at least that is how he is presented within the series.
> Then there are the movies, Death & Rebirth along with End of Evangelion. The first provided a good runback on the series to catch one up to speed before the second and smaller half of the movie, which showed Asuka's and the animation studio(s) greatest moments. The second movie did exactly what the original series did to me (stated in the first paragraph). It's funny how Shinji and Rei (Correction, I mean Asuka. Put Rei by accident because Oedipus complex is too stonk) are actually more perfect for each other than with anyone else. It's perfectly sad...
>REBUILD. ................................From 1.0 to 2.0 to 3.0............................................. Where. The truck. Do I. Begin?
This at first I thought was gonna be a complete remake of the original story but I completely didn't know the real conext and or purpose of these movies. Peeps here and there in any comment section were going on and on about how this is a remake/ reboot/ redo or whatever and here I am thinking what the hell was that at the end of 1.0? Surely this must be either an canon alt universe or even a straight up continuation! Either way I've got some MASSIVE THINGS TO LET OUT.
-Who and why is Mari existing? I do love her but not as much as a character. If anything, she's more of an overly anime-girl-like doll! I love her but I question her existence!!!
-ALL OF IT. EVERYTHING. IT'S ALL FAN SERVICE! AND I DON'T MEAN THE CENSORED KIND!! Not really all of it but there's an air of GREAT change to the characters, making them seem more to characters anime mainstreamers who shut off their brains to power fantasies all the time would LOVE. NO OFFENSE to said anime mainstreamers but there are peeps who literally PRAISE these movies -- WHICH IS FINE-- but while calling the original either " Too depressed! You people must LOVE depression to love the original" or "Too weak! The main character is such a cat's meow!" (And it's funnily sad because some peeps still call Rebuild Shinji a cat's meow EVEN THOUGH HE'S SLIGHTLY MORE ACTIVE THAN THE ORIGINAL. People only want to consume more in the end it seems. The movies and the development of the characters are all rushed a bit and that made the events of 2.0---while rather epic--NOT completely able to make me feel a sense of TRUE LOVE CONQUERS ALL CUZ I'M AN ANIME PROTAG! Because it was made to not work! SHINJI. WAS MADE. TO NOT. WORK. But what did they do? It's like anti main protag miracle powers at work!
-EVERYONE IN THE LAST SCENES OF 2.0 ALL THE WAY TO THE END OF 3.0 ARE IDIOTS! There are things that could have been AVOIDED if a certain main character got a certain INFODUMP he deserved! But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, BLAME IT ALL ON HIS IDIOCY, NOT OURS. Mind you, Rebuild Shinji is an utter FOOL! BUT! He was FOOL of a TOOL. A tool not equal to OG Shinji, OG Shinji was a sad tool since his birth and it wasn't even his fault, almost none of it. But REBUILD SHINJI.... HE. IS. A. FOOL. And I HATE REBUILD MISATO and all you who seen the rebuilds know why! AND I HATE REBUILD RITSUKO'S HAIR!!!!!
-Kowaru deserved none of this. But it's fine, as he himself said...
-I wanna kick the butternutts outta Gendo! He's worse than Gut's dad! WORSE I SAY! WORSE-- Okay maybe just on the same level but damn it!
EVEN SO! I still found the Rebuild movies VERY enjoyable because it gives a different take on the series ( even with how massive a rapid bleeding worm enfested womb 3.0 seems to be) and I ENJOYED it. Would I call it better than the original? HAHAHHAAHAHAHA!!! HELL NO! That things great for eye-candy with animation like that, brutha! But I won't call it an absolute trash field either. It's... fun and different in it's own right. BUT NOT BETTER! Trust me when I say If you watch the original you won't feel a speck of true sadness in the Rebuild movies. Maybe for one character but that's it! And not exactly because the movie isn't sad enough but because the original is by LEAPS AND BOUNDS sadder!
From what I gathered, trash fans pestered the director into making the rebuilds? If so, they all can just butter right off to their caves, the selfish, self-centered, scum-sucking, star-stranglers.
I'm never drinking orange soda again. But I'm only lying to myself because I know my favourite orange soda is down there in the pantry...waiting for me. I'm so flubbed up...
Anyways, I loved the series! If you wanna talk about how I feel about specific stuff, go right ahead because I require conversations with others to continue living! Remember to keep calm and just let the 3rd impact happen! ^^
I have a full cupboard of absolut vodka I've been given because "Awkward pause*...I thought you'd like it !"
Anyway back on topic, I'm hoping Lapis and Peridot get some time to shine and we get a few scenes checking in on beach city overall post timeskip. Also i saw a thumbnail for the poster and i just couldn't help but think it looked like the all mighty corporate mouse of the big D was trying to crush the Gems. Gave me a few good laughs
I am kinda half hoping this is a setup to a new storyline. I’m remembering Venture Brothers and how they used a TV special to get a clean end to the plots that were there since season 1 to then just do a soft reboot in the seasons after with a new setting and new plots.
Indeed. I’d rather the series end on a high note rather than get more seasons just because fans demanded it. The show lives by its tight and interesting storytelling that it’ll be a stain on its legacy if at the end it threw it out the window.
Besides, considering the time slots it’s been given and the fact that many still don’t know it still airs, it probably gets terrible ratings. But I know the merch sells like crazy, so it makes the money it needs to!
It's an interesting discussion considering a certain HBO series that went bad, but I can say for things like game of thrones or Voltron even with bad endings...I can still say overall I enjoyed the series for what they were.
But I can understand different opinions on that matter, either way we can all agree that I hope this movie isn't just to quickly wrap things up
The funny thing is, is that they don’t even need to wrap things up. It was rushed but the last few episodes did that, especially the last part of the final one. Like, there’s literally no plot thread left dangling there, really.
There's still the fact that gem home world is dying (of resources) and that's one of the reasons why they go take over other planets. War on other worlds should still be going on, I believe.
What I expect and what I believe should make the most sense would be the introduction of a new alien threat, a force that will make the earth gems fight together with home world gems. It's up to the writers to allow the enemy to be not completely evil and have their reasons and such.
But before all of that, there's still gem home world aristocrats and earth gems getting along. Massive reconstruction of the gem home world social order. Do all that, then new alien threat.
The first thing that came to mind literally just now is snail-like goo people. This is die to that Hoseki no Kuni episode. XP
I mean, sure? But like, the book has to end at some point, so to speak. If we’re gonna be nitpicking here, then the only way this whole thing can have a clean and clear end is with everyone dying lol. There’s still always stuff left at the end otherwise.
My point is, is that we never got detailed looks at any of that stuff. I mean, sure that can be added in with the theoretical future seasons, but like, the line is going to be drawn someone. My point was, was that it could have been at the end of the last episode and that was the first time that line could have been there and fans would have been okay.
CN had a Steven Universe celebration where they marathoned fan favorite episodes and in the ad breaks they put in the Comic-Con trailer and interviews with fans at CC about what they like about the show it was nice.
They also had Zach Callison talk about the show and he...looks like a Steven Universe fan with those pink highlights in his hair lol. It was adorable.
Yeah, I liked it but I do agree. While they made it clear more fights were to come, there wasn’t really any character development. It came off as a resolution to the main plot, really. Well, that and as a way to get more fans as it actually is a decent starting point for those who don’t mind spoilers to the main plot.
The songs were definitely amazing and the6 need to release that soundtrack already!
