Messiah, honestly I fucking hate all this. It has really affected my life on TAY and my enjoyment of this place that has been my online home for about 2.5 years now. Until now, I've never been called an idiot or anything by a TAY person and I've never had anyone have it out for me. I've been in a funk all afternoon… » 9/17/14 5:55pm Wednesday 5:55pm

Not in the middle of, but they've yanked thins in my queue. One of my favorite moves, The Last Mistress, used to be on there. It's really hard to find online, and I think my older brother took my DVD. » 9/17/14 11:31am Wednesday 11:31am

I find the weird way guys put me on a pedestal for gaming to be really insulting, not flattering. It's my activity and interest that I love and I hate being treated like my gaming exists to be attractive to men.

Paradise Kiss : Ani-TAY Retro Review

I started watching Paradise Kiss, an adaption of beloved artist Ai Yazawa's josei manga, with somewhat academic motives. As I'm doing a senior project on Japanese street fashion and Lolita, I wanted to see how the show explored the fashion subculture. I got that and so much more with this emotional coming of age… » 9/15/14 9:00am Monday 9:00am

Shin Sekai Yori and Kiddy Grade were like that for me. The first started out incredibly oblique and slow, and the second almost lost me with all the fan service and episodic nature of the plot for the first 6 or 7 episodes. » 9/14/14 10:15am Sunday 10:15am

I do want to play some stuff this weekend - some Radiant Historia and then not sure what else. I doubt Dyram is up for starting a new Tales already! Other than that we're probably going to finish Paradise Kiss. » 9/12/14 10:04am 9/12/14 10:04am
