I'm enjoying Sydney while I'm here! But does anyone have any recommendations for things to do in Melbourne?
Contact Australian tropers to hang out with.
That made me remember Ironypus. Saiga is posting regularly, but man, he did not post for a while.
I guess either real-life happened or he just got bored of this site.
I went through a bunch of Naruto Shippuden endings and now I have the urge to buy myself a Jitensha.
Koide! always koide!
God, I love whenever people post here. It's really quite in this thread.
And a Naruto related post, to boot!
I'm reminded that I never watched Shippuden episodes. I didn't even finished the manga, only reading up to the beginning of the final arc.
The final arc is really long.
I sometimes think about binging the whole series but the length is kind of intimidating.
I dropped One Piece for the same reason.
I dropped both series for entirely different reasons! The war arc in Naruto was just ridiculousnote The last stuff I remember reading was Obito being saved by Madara and then going WOOOO OAOAAAH OOOO for the whole chapter while he beat up mooks and failed to save gen 0 Sakura and all I could think of was Billy Joel's For The Longest Time, which made it impossible to take anything seriously anymore while in One Piece the story never actually progresses at all. Oda seriously needs an editor.
But I guess the real reason for both is just that they're booooring.
Sounds like you need to find yourself some good old isekai anime!
But I pretty much don't watch anime anymore!
I read some isekai light novels, though. The trashiest one that I can't bring myself to hate is The Death Mage Who Doesn't Want A Fourth Time. It's just so dumb but I still read every chapter that comes out.
I finished Naruto and Bleach, even though I wasn't fully happy with the final arcs.
I dropped One Piece because the world just keeps expanding and even if it's slowly reaching its end, I just don't have the patience for its payoffs. I'll still keep generally abreast of what's happening from time to time, basically checking if they're still on Namek. As for why I reached my breaking point, After joining the crew, Jinbe immediately got Put on a Bus (chapter 902) and hasn't been seen in 16 months (currently chapter is 953). According to Tekking101's math, it has been 5 real world years since the full active crew (Jinbe hadn't officially joined yet) was together, or over 250 chapters, over 1/4 of the series. WTF, Oda.
I basically catch up on Attack on Titan's manga every 6 months. It's a monthly manga that will probably be over by the end of this year or next year.
I still need to finish reading JJBA arc 6 Stone Ocean, and Cromartie High School. I'll likely finish watching Monster Musume in the next month when I'm bored some evening. It's a nice, sweet series, but I need to know that the manga will go for the Marry Them All ending before I start it. Otherwise, the anime has And the Adventure Continues / No Ending, I think, which I'm happy with.
I mean I was still entertained by Naruto all the way to the end even though Madara got an unsatisfying end and the endgame went from war to.... "And then aliens".
The only manga that I'm really reading is Attack on Titan and Vinland Saga but I'm trying to catch up on Berserk too, I guess.

The series I've dropped most recently was Black Clover, because it was just awful, boring, and forgettable.
The only shonen that has caught my attention is My Hero Academia and Iím still annoyed that the show tells you what the ending is within the first 3 episodes
I don't think "shonen protagonist succeeds at becoming the very best, like no one ever was" really constitutes a spoiler, you know?
As far as currently-running shonen goes, Demon Slayer actually got me to like and sympathize with a villain who was introduced going all "bluh bluh social Darwinism the weak don't deserve to live."
Never heard of Demon Slayer, is that a Jump title?
Don't worry, all of the narrations about future events are blatant lies

Yeah, it's Shonen Jump. It's really good too.
But I don't want to know that immediately. It could very well be something else that happens to MC. There's always the chance that something else happens to MC.
@Saiga Not sure whether you're teasing me or not. I've only watched up to episode 4 atm.

Ribbing the series, not you.
He's teasing, but it's true.
Wow, I just realized why Spider-Man: Homecoming is titled that, and I honestly feel pretty stupid it took me so long.
Because of the code word to activate the Winter Soldier, obviously.
I just saw the Dora The Explorer movie, and really liked it. If it's still in theaters where you guys are, show it some love!
Almost six years later since I "finished" the first draft of my very first novel, The Cemetery Girl, (I'd call this a slice of black romantic comedy campus life story)I finally completed the first edit and truly finished the story.
There were a lot of plot threads that went nowhere and the last couple of chapters were really rushed, barely qualifying as endings. Also, it was cringeworthy in hoe pretentious and rambling it got. Fun fact, the first draft clocked around 120k words/270 Word pages, but the revised version is only 65k words/180 pages.
It got me thinking: how the hell was the first draft twice as long but still somehow managed to be incomplete and actually tell less story?
By finishing this story, I mean I produced a manuscript that I can take to a publisher or a literary agent. Of course, the chances are they will make me go through at least a couple more revisions.
But goddamn it, I wrote a novel and I'm gonna get this published by the end of this year!
Fuck yeah, I feel like I achieved something.
Random Trivia: This being my first proper story, this has a couple of firsts, such as my very first moe character I created.
Amusingly enough, many characters went through big overhaul but that moe character (who happened to be MC's little sister) is the only one who remained mostly the same.
In a very American(-ish) story, albeit with fair bit of diversity, she's basically an anime character, being an uniform-wearing high school girl. And before you even ask, no, she doesn't have a crush on her big brother or anything, being a lesbian and all.
Hey, congratulations! That's more books than most people will ever finish writing.
