noctisity (3 tuntia sitten) #29804411View spoilerHide spoilerMaybe within the next few years Otabek will be made since companies are starting to remember Yurio exists lol. (Or, you know, GSC could stop making alternative outfits for existing characters and make other characters instead lol.)
That sounds like a fun tournament to watch. Kind of reminds me of watching DDR competitions at arcades. And yeah, I'm not sure if Sony plans on making a new handheld anytime soon? So the price for the Vita kind of hasn't moved, but buying a used one isn't too bad. Really just depends on how much storage you want.
Oh no LOL. I feel like Monopoly is one of those games where everyone has a story which is why I thought it would be interesting as an anime lol.
By the way, happy birthday! :D


I just got the Idolish7 little sweets thingies!! They're adorable ;__; ahhhh~ I put them on my shelf next to my Yamato and Tamaki prize figures, ehehehe.

Also thank you~ My birthday is actually tomorrow but MFC is dumb and sent out announcements at midnight last night XD Not sure why, haha. Hoo boy I am gettin old. ~_~

I remember ages ago when a lot of the local anime conventions had DDR contests, lol. I miss that game. Hardly anyone in Japan plays it anymore, but it's still super popular here. I wish there were more rhythm games in the USA. They're best at arcades because you can have such large machines. I always feel like the home versions aren't as fun unless you have the arcade quality stuff (like one of the full metal dance pads rather than a crappy dance mat, etc).

Also I have no idea about more portable stuff coming out of Sony. I'm wondering if they're holding back on it because of how poorly the Vita did outside of Japan. I don't think there are any games coming out for it other than in Japan at this point. Nintendo kind of has the market cornered for portable gaming outside of Japan. Hell even within Japan I think, especially after the release of the Switch.

I mostly play PC games because I can't aim joysticks to save mine or my teammates lives. XD If I play any games that are portable it's been stuff like Ensemble Stars on my phone or Pokemon on DS or 2DS. I only want a Vita/PSP to be able to get some otome stuff...though I can't say I'd actually play it in public...Though if it's in Japanese the people around me wouldn't be able to read the screen anyway, lol!

heroizumi (1 päivää sitten) #29760036View spoilerHide spoilerI just really hope the GSC figures will be nice. And I hope they make an Otabek nendo and eventually a set of figures of Otabek and Yurio, lol! I'd love to have an Otabek on a motorcycle with Yurio hangin on. XDDD
Yeah, I have to agree that Japan does focus more on 1v1 stuff for tournaments. Japan is huge on fighting games, haha. I know I've seen some single player "tournaments" at my local game center too. It was a local gaming club (I think???) doing their Taiko no Tatsujin championship, haha. They had their members playing the same couple songs and seeing who had the best score (or something like that). I also agree about the Vita/PS4 thing though. I don't really want to get a Vita just to play Otome games since I already have a PS4, hahaha. Though I suppose getting a used one would be cheap. I'm pretty sure they're region free so getting one would be easy since no one in USA wants one, LOL!
I don't talk about Japanese people and Monopoly because my friend's 14 year old son completely destroyed me and another adult friend. I have too much shame. ;__;

noctisity (1 päivää sitten) #29758553View spoilerHide spoilerMy goodness, she doesn't seem like she would have been pleasant to be around for long. If someone is staying in another country as a guest, you'd think they would be more conscious about social expectations and cultural norms.
I can't say much about the Yuri figures since they don't have prototypes yet, but the Toy's Work Victor figure does leave a lot to be desired. The only thing I really like is the base, but it also doesn’t make that much sense because there wouldn't be that much ice near a rink lol.
Whenever I heard about gaming competitions in relation to Japan, they focus more on 1v1 fighting games. I know their PvP teams tend to be much weaker compared to other countries. And yeah I've noticed that mobile/handheld consoles seems to be much more popular in Japan, probably due to the fact they spend a lot of time commuting and it's more private to play on a handheld compared to a TV? (For example, I follow a lot of otome gaming news and companies are trying to expand to the PS4 instead of keeping everything on the Vita, but there are some arguments that it makes gameplay less immersive/private since everything is on a big screen. Personally I would like to see more PS4 otome games because I don't want to shell out money for a Vita. I've already had people walk in on me playing otome games on the PC anyway so LOLOL.)
I haven't seen Akagi yet, but Hikaru no Go does eventually ease off the supernatural element. I think that is what keeps it interesting at the beginning, but it's pretty much the only fantastical thing that actually happens since the series depicts go accurately.
Ohman, there are so many board games you could make an anime on LOL. Life would be pretty fun, as you mentioned, but I think Monopoly would be interesting as well (though I'm not sure how popular that is in Japan).

heroizumi (3 päivää sitten) #29680442View spoilerHide spoilerThe only person she could have shared with was her boyfriend. Perhaps he had some but I know she was disliked by the neighbors because she played music rather loud and rarely took out her trash so passing by her door was like passing a dumpster. >.> I only know this because I had the misfortune of helping her clean up and throw out the trash before I was to move in. -___-
I was hoping the ToysWorks figures would somehow turn out okay too but they were even worse than Megahouse. Right now my hope is that Kotobukiya picks up more characters and GSC decides to do more as well. I have three Megahouse scales and they're rather nice so I'm sad the YoI ones just aren't looking as great. ~_~
Muwahahaha I have planted the seed of ice hockey XDD I just think it's one of those weird sports that isn't horrifically popular, but when you do find a Japanese person who likes it, they're really really deep in there. I went to an amateur match once and it was insane, haha.
I agree that it would be really cool to see an e-sports based anime series. It's just sad that e-sports don't seem to be as big in Japan as they are in the west and in South Korea. I think I've only met 2 or 3 PC gamers while I was in Japan, almost everyone is about console, and of course it's mostly PS4 for adults and Nintendo for kids.
Chess would be interesting for sure. I enjoyed Hikaru no Go and Akagi so I'd hope that a chess series would have a similar feeling to them. Admittedly Hikaru no Go had a supernatural element to it and Akagi was rather dark, haha.
Weirdly I think it would be really funny to see a comedy series of friends playing The Game of Life. It's actually a rather popular board game in Japan so I think it might work XDDD

noctisity (3 päivää sitten) #29678915View spoilerHide spoilerThat is very strange to be in school that long but not want to take it seriously (or that's the impression I get because paying for class but never showing up seems like a waste of time/money). There are a lot of people that disregard their dietary restrictions but that doesn't seem very wise. I wonder if she ended up sharing those snacks with other people before she left instead of eating it all herself.
The Megahouse Victor bothered me too. It's great seeing more new male figures being made, but as you mentioned, he looked way too shiny and the paint job conveys a material similar to latex which I doubt they were going for. There doesn't seem to be any issues with the Nendoroids at least. I was surprised to see Yuuri's at some American stores already.
An ice hockey anime wasn't something I realized I wanted lol. I think I would like to see an anime about e-sports (focusing on team-based game like Overwatch or a fighting game like Tekken) or chess. There are a lot of anime about characters in games, but nothing (that I'm aware of?) that focuses on the competitiveness of tournaments and how that impacts the player's RL. And then there are already anime about go and mahjong so I don't think chess would be too far out there, especially since the characters could come from all sorts of diverse backgrounds. I am surprised there isn't much anime focusing on Japanese sports. I didn't even know of Bamboo Blade or Yawara until you mentioned it. A lot series I've come across that focus on martial arts tend to add a fantastical element to it so it's no longer about the sport itself but about the magical powers that come from it.

heroizumi (3 päivää sitten) #29661646View spoilerHide spoilerI went to university with that teacher (she's older than me) and she was always kinda...weird? Like I can understand some stuff to a point, but she was in the Japanese program for 5 or 6 years and only made it to level 2. She barely came to class because she claimed she was sick.
When I met her again she was talking about how hard it was living in Japan as a diabetic because of how much white rice they eat. I understand that cuz my mom is diabetic as well. What I didn't get was that she wanted to hang out before she left and took me to one of the adult student's bakeries. She bought an entire cake and a few other things (cream puffs, pudding, etc). She was leaving in a few days so obviously she meant to eat it before then.....but she's diabetic so large amounts of sweets should be a no-no.....but not for her I guess. ~_~ She's just a weird person.
YoI will forever haunt me I think, lol! I ordered Kotobukiya's Coach Victor but I think both of the Megahouse ones look bad. Victor is too shiny and Yuuri's face seems off. I'm hoping Yurio will look okay though. And I have hope for GSC's scales of Victor and Yuuri. I've never seen a bad scale by them XD
I have to agree about the less than ordinary sports. I was rather pleased with All Out!! even though rugby isn't very popular here. I'd be interested in seeing a series about ice hockey to be honest. I watched a J-drama that was based around an ice hockey team and it was wonderful. I can only imagine the weird things that would come from some animated ice hockey. XD Any sports you think you'd like to come across an anime of? Also don't you think it's weird there aren't many sports series featuring Japanese sports? I can only really think of are Bamboo Blade (kendo) and Yawara. (judo) I'm sure there are more martial arts ones out there, but I feel like a lot of them will combine loads of styles like Ranma 1/2.

noctisity (3 päivää sitten) #29651950View spoilerHide spoilerWait, so the teacher gave away everything she bought too? That seems kind of ridiculous. I realize there's nothing to do about it now since it's been years, but there should have been some sort of fine for leaving the place empty since someone else was going to move in after.
Sounds like you will be stuck collecting YoI for awhile because they're not going to let up lol. Are you collecting any of the scale figures?
I find that the "weird sports" seem to be the most interesting. Like that's how I came across Yowapeda and Ping Pong. Not that more mainstreams sports aren't as good or anything, it's just... for example there are many soccer and baseball anime. I like learning about new sports so it's not usually introducing a lot of new things to me sports-wise lol.
I see some Ippo figures for sale once in awhile, but they're always made of resin. They sure look nice, but seems very fragile.

heroizumi (7 päivää sitten) #29478492View spoilerHide spoilerI don't know what that teacher was doing. She gave everything that was in the apartment to her boyfriend and then moved back to the USA. I doubt he needed it because he was older and owned his own house. Like...she didn't even leave hangers behind. The people at my school were angry because it was unfair to me. I didn't bring enough to purchase everything because I didn't think I needed to. ~_~ A lot of the people in the office ended up finding things they didn't need at home to donate to the apartment.
I do remember seeing some of the figures up for sale again but I'm still caught up in Yuri on Ice so I've hardly been looking at other stuff XD
I've heard of Ping Pong but I've never checked it out, ahaha. It's another one of the weird sports series XDD
I remember seeing stuff about Hajime no Ippo while I was in high school but I dismissed it because I was like "boxing...why would you want to watch an anime series about that???" but 2-3 years ago my friend highly recommended it. It was 1000000% worth it. Too bad the figures totally went crazy in price. ;__; I have one little Miyata and pray that one day they'll release more figures. I'd love to have some more Ippo stuff. I discovered it was cheaper buying animation cels than it was to get Ippo figures. XD That is weird idea for sure, but yeah XD

noctisity (8 päivää sitten) #29466666View spoilerHide spoilerThat sounds like quite an experience. Did you ever have much time to visit larger cities? And I can see why that teacher would want to take the furniture/appliances she spent money on but would have been nice if she had left the old stuff in a storage somewhere. Are you still teaching nowadays or using Japanese in your current job?
I think some of the older Slam Dunk figures are getting re-released this month? Although perhaps pre-orders would be closed now. But hopefully they'll be easier to track down since there will be more in the market.
Ice skating and dancing are just as rigorous as other sports so never really get why people criticize them as not "real" sports. I guess since there's not one team facing off against another? Unfortunately I still have not seen Hajime no Ippo although I know it's highly regarded. Have you watched Ping Pong? It's a bit… quirky compared to other sports series, but honestly one of my favorites. It was kind of one of those shows I watched on a whim and ended up being a surprise gem.

heroizumi (9 päivää sitten) #29427036View spoilerHide spoilerI keep looking at A3 and telling myself no XD
There's too much crap I'm already collecting, I don't need another!! But art looks so nice ;__;
I lived in Japan on two different occasions. The first time was my study abroad while I was still learning Japanese in university. That time was about 10 months. I'd gone to Japan the summer prior with my university and knew that if I wanted to get better I'd definitely have to study abroad.
The second time was for work after I graduated. I spent 3 and a half months in Choshi, Chiba working at a university, then I spent about 3 years and a few months teaching at a language school in Gifu City, Gifu. Both of these places are fairly middle of nowhere, hahaha.
The issue was that my apartment in Gifu was supposed to be "fully furnished" but when I got there, the teacher who'd lived there before me had thrown everything out and bought her own stuff...which she took with her. I never even had a TV because I couldn't afford to get one. I just ended up pirating stuff the whole time. ~_~
Yep! I've seen both Eyeshield 21 and Slam Dunk! I can't say I was that big of a fan of Eyeshield, but Slam Dunk is great! I really want to get the figures of everyone but the only person who seems to be selling them here on MFC only ships within Europe ;__;
I think my favorite sports series are Hajime no Ippo, Yuri on Ice, Haikyuu, Touch and Ballroom e Yokoso XD Definitely a wide range of sports. Some people might argue that YoI and Ballroom aren't "real" sports...but I disagree lol I'd think of those, the most borderline is Touch because it focuses a lot more on the characters than on the sport itself. XD
