    i gave up around chapter 200 and something at the bit where
    Spoiler:
    Show
    some new guys in suits appeared and one of them started banging this alien chick :rofl2: :facepalm2:
    it just got sillier and sillier :no:
    lol, I remember that. It had an amazing concept but the guy just completely messed it up. I think like sword art, they had an amazing start but skipped like 50 floor or something? I really wish they did it another way.

    totally agree the whole concept is amazing when put it into context. it is actually loosely based off a real internet time travel forum ! john titor actually exists ( when in the fact there is someone who claimed to be from the future) and the organisation sern is real but is really called sern.

    The author of the LNs is redoing the first arc of the series as he felt he squandered the potential of the first world of Sword Art Online. I think it's called SAO Progressive?

    I know, that's what makes it so epic!

    No, light novels aren't really my thing. I might buy the Log Horizon ones though because I want a way to support the franchise as it's one of my favourites.

    Is it for pre-order? I just saw it on amazon for 10 quid. I don't understand such high prices when stuff like a space odyssey 2001 is much cheaper for like literally 1p plus postage. I guess it's cause it from japan and import and other fees adds up, also as it's no way as popular as some of the other books. I wish they made a good price novels here, I would 100% buy them ALL!

    Light novels are really expensive because they have to translate an entire novel as opposed to just the dialogue like they do for manga so that's why I try and avoid LNs. Plus I can get manga for a good price because my local comic store has 3 for 2 on all manga so it's usually less than £5 per volume. It's pretty much the one time that an actual shop is a lot cheaper than Amazon.

    Oh, I guess I will visit a local comic store too. Pretty rare to find them around, in this day and age, especially in the UK.

    Steins:gate is amazing, it's based of the Visual novel. I will tell you now, the japanese voice acting is what I consider one of the best of all time, and although I haven't watched the dub, I super highly recommend the sub. The voice actor is absolutely amazing in japanese.

    It's an anime on a whole new level to sword art online lol. Much more tension with less action. I think it's one of those animes where you may actually have to think rather than just sit brain dead and just watch.
    Couldnt agree more, steins;gate is fantastic and in a whole other world. Anyone who hasn't seen it should watch it right now, it's that good. Also I think the dub done a rather impressive job and sounded great overall.

    Indeed! I think I'm actually enjoying it more second-time around, possibly because the week's gap between episodes first time around made it harder to keep track of everything that was going on. Hope you like it/are already enjoying it as much.

    I'm hoping to finish the first of my TSR Secret Santa series (Sukitte Ii na Yo) tomorrow, then it'll be on to Kaze no Stigma.

    You are super active on this forum lol. But how'd you rewatch a series? I only ever rewatched guilty crown because I really enjoyed it for some reason lol, but yeah how'd you not get bored of remembering it all happen again?

    Someone has to be. :p:

    I'm mostly rewatching series from my own Top 50 list, so it helps that they're all shows I really like. :yes: But I haven't watched some of them in 5-8 years, and even if I remember most of the main plot points, there are other small things that I might have forgotten about. Or even overlooked entirely - I'm currently rewatching Durarara!!, and there was a small, easily missed reference to Kino no Tabi in the 5th episode. Chances are I wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't also rewatched Kino no Tabi a couple of weeks ago. :zomg:

    It also helps to remind myself every now and then what it feels like to watch a truly great anime series, just to make sure I don't overrate anything that's currently airing. :p:
