    It's not like we need Crunchyroll anyway. Well except for Horriblesubs and AnimeUltima to rip from them. :laugh:


    Well, there are even more simulcasts now for Crunchyroll, so they had to get money somewhere I guess...

    The forums sucks. Supposedly an anti-spam feature so that spambots won't be able to post if they have multiple tabs open of TPC links, yet still fails miserably. And hampers legitimate users in the forums to boot. Besides the need to always copy-paste, the site still loads too slowly. Very slowly.

    @entropy13: haha indeed, i actually find myself doing copy paste even in this site lol.
    few years back, there was also this Filipino site for animu discussion, tried to join in (was invited somewhere) but the level of otaku-ness is way too extreme for me, discussing naruto/bleach/one-piece all day long and comparing their lives and likeness to them and even deeper (i like to watch and draw anime stuff but wtf), can't really describe it with words lol and i even found some super emo people there.

    I was a regular of a forum that started as such, ichiraku.org (around 2006). But the forum was eventually "expanded" and it became more like an "online community." It ended abruptly in 2010 though (the admin/site owner announced he would be stopping the payment for hosting). Most of us are in college now, others are working now. We had a reunion last Saturday (Pizza Day and Bowling Day combined - we had these two annually before as separate events) , we discussed current anime, drawing, DDR, GF, DM, someone brought his Nendoroid-like figures (forgot what they were called, but they were made by Banpresto) etc.

    And there are plans of an outing this summer.


    I have no such problems with posting in TPU however. TBH I'm quite comfortable with vBulletin forums because that's usually the forum system used by the forums I am a regular of. Although the first one is actually the website of Phoenix Rising, a clan for Kings of Chaos. 2003 iirc. lol

    You obviously fail to see their charm we the lovers of cute things do, we are not lolicon, we just love small and cute things, thats all...

    Anyone watches Chihayafuru??
    Ep 14 was great...

    OH ma Gaud!!
    I just watched daily life of high school boys, and some bad bug must have hit me...
    I thought this would be another cute boys doing cute things sort of thing, instead its stupid boys doing stupid things...
    By the last spot when Tadatsuki or whatever his name enters the scene and throws the punch line (literally), tears and droll as i rolled on the floor laughing my ass off...
    This is so good!!

    Internet is soooo f**king slow. I still haven't finished downloading the first Inu X Boku SS ep. And obviously I can't start on Amagami SS+'s 2nd ep yet.

    No difference between the two. They would both reach around 20KB/s max.

    When the internet is "good" though, torrent speeds (at least 50KB/s) outstrips direct downloads (50KB/s max).


    I've watched the 2nd Amagami SS+ ep now. It's 2 eps per girl since it's a different girl in the next ep (Rihoko).

    Well speeds improved so I was able to watch the 2nd eps of several shows (as well as Fairy Tail's 113th ep). Right now I'm getting True Tears, and rewatching them. Considering the barely enough number of seeds, this is actually taking quite a while. 5th ep in 3 days? lol
