Well I never go back on my promises...
The fact that a jew has a 卐 avatar is quite...paradoxical xD
jesus what is this said:
Okay, onto not america-y comics, how excited are you for Bakuman season 2 or are you not a big a fan as I thought? Or not totally into it like me where you watch both the anime and manga? Also other favorite mangas?
I don't watch anime. I don't have the time or patience to, and watching an episode halfway through and being interrupted really irks me. It's also easier for me to get really absorbed when I'm reading something. I look up clips of really sweet fight scenes from fighty manga I read because, let's face it, fights are cooler in motion. I love Bakuman, but that's one series I can't even begin to understand the appeal of having an anime for. The manga is so dialogue-driven with Mashiro and Takagi sitting and talking and gesticulating that unless they took a LOT of creative liberties, I would probably think it's a boring pile of shit.
I read Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Bakuman, Soul Eater, and Hunter x Hunter regularly. I have read Shaman King twice through, Uzumaki twice through, Death Note thrice through, the Gurren Lagann manga through chapter whatever the equivalent of episode 8 is, Gurren Lagann High School once (it sucked), ummmm Dragon Ball I read once or twice, the Majin Cat guy thing that Toriyama wrote twice, Ruruoni Kenshin like 9 times, Yu Yu Hakusho like 5 times, uhhh I read whatever of Samurai DeepermKyo there was on OneManga before it went down last year. O, and I read FMA like 8 times too, ofc. Love the FMA. There may be others I'm forgetting. I like rereading things because you can look for minute details and pay more attention to motifs, thematic ideas, etc without having to worry about how fucking sweet the fights are or how freakish the ending will be. You can really focus on the elements that make it a good story and come away with a better opinion on its quality and make connections that you might miss otherwise. Immersing yourself in something's canon it wonderful.
how can you even stomach looking at this username said:
Also what would be a better username for me I mean I feel not so good about my username now :<

did you look up gundam porn yet?
No, nor do I plan to, but if that was like a real anime I'd watch the shit out of it as long as there were no titanic robodicks. That would be a nightmare, I expect.
So I don't seem like a totally one-dimensional comicbook freak I will forgo saying Arkham Asylum.
Knights of the Old Republic 1&2 are awesome RPGs for Star Wars nerds who don't care about the Death Star seeming like an archaic piece of shit, or the modern Sith Lords look more like shit lrods. HK-47 is also a classic.
The Sims series and Spore and other sandboxy games also get a mention. I never get sick of them forever, and even when I do taking a break for a week or a month will renew my excitement.
Nuzlocking is also something I love too, but if you can't get into it emotionally and you are just playing to win and not to make cool stories, you're missing the point. If you ever feel the need to bend a rule, it's not for you imo
JEEZ this is a really long list, but also I like fighting games with characters I know. For this reason, I liked Brawl because I could be Charizard, MK v DC because I could be Supes/Bats/GL. I wanna play MvC3 but I haven't gotten to. I would be Magneto/Doctor Doom/Dormammu/Captain America/IRON MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!/Thor/Spidey just from a quick lookover of the character list.
Favourite Book written by Stephanie Meyer?
I actually wanted to read or see Twilight to see what everyone is so up in arms about (other than the sparkles which if it's true I agree are dumb) but never got around to it. The commercials for the halfnaked werewolves gangraping bony-looking-and-not-especially-attractive girl kind of turned me off from it, but maybe one day I will get it out from the library and see what the fuss is all about.
I, too, enjoy rigorous laughter.
You seem to be a man of the comic book, recently started reading those
Only recently. When I was a small boy I loved comics, but I kind of lost interest in 9th grade and stopped reading them. I read some graphic novels when they were in the library, but that was about all. I have been immersing myself in DC's post-Infinite Crisis and post-Final Crisis canon and when that has nothing left for me, I will immerse myself in Marvel. I read Silver Surfer: Requiem and really liked it, so I think I will see what my old friend Norrin has been up to. I've been reading them over my computer, but I wanna buy some more GNs. The last batch I purchased was a few weeks ago, namely Superman: For Tomorrow (gr8), Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds (I love Superboy-Prime \o/), and Silver Surfer: Requiem. There's something special about the smell of a freshly-purchased comicbook, and I'm a compulsive buyer so when I go into the comic store I'm leaving with either a stack of comics or Magic: the Gathering cards, and these days the comics are turning out to be cheaper x: $10 for a fucking Inkmoth Nexus...not even Mythic...
What do you think about the idea of an Avengers movie, and do you think DC should make a Justice League one?
Avengers movie is gonna blow, calling it right now. It has Thor in it and Loki is gonna be the main villain. Iron Man, Hulk, and Captain America all had cool films, but Thor's blew and Loki sucked shit as they made him. Unless they totally undermine the tone of Thor's movie, it will be ungood. I say ungood because I will still probably go see it in theatres multiple times and don't want to admit to seeing a film I knew would suck in advance several times.
A Justice League movie is on the way, totally distinct from the current GL movie and the Dark Knight series, and also from the new Superman: Man of Steel film that is coming out. I do not have high hopes for it based on how the Lantern was handled and how Superman Returns was (it blew). Then again, Nolan is onboard and I loved the Dark Knight, but thought Batman Begins blew. I think DC has trouble doing first movies because they don't really know how to translate the huge mythology to the silver screen without confusing the shit out of most viewers. Marvel knows not to cram too much in ever since Spiderman 3 and X3, even though I liked X3. DC wants the entire Universe compressed into the one movie just in case they don't get a sequel. But, once that's out of the way, their sequels kick ass because they don't need to establish anything. That's part of why Nolan's Dark Knight was so great. He already blew like 70% of the basic characterization load in Batman Begins so he was able to spend more time on the Joker's character and Harvey Dent's descent. We already know Bruce, we know what motivates him, we know how he operates. Marvel's Iron Man, which I consider the analogue in terms of quality/iconic...ness, is still not fully characterized despite having two movies. It's a totally different narrative style that is probably more effective overall, but makes it hard to beat an individual movie as well-done as the Dark Knight. Iron Man 2 still stumbles around trying to elaborate on Tony while all these new characters show up. War Machine and Vanko would have ultimately been the most developed guys if Iron Man was done like Batman.
I hope that was coherent. There is more I want to say probably, but I gotta think some more. I usually develop my thoughts as I write which is why all my answers are so tangential and why I have answered nonquestions.
oh and i need to post another joke and ask an almost serious question i guess
1: emotre sage patrik lives forever

i actually have been meaning to ask why you chose to be an english major for the longest time even though you've probably said some shit on irc a few times/probably in this thread!
Because I like being an unemployed drain on society :D
Honestly, I like reading and writing. That's all. I picked something I think I like, and if I like something else I will change.
also i've been really liking charge beam porygon since like umm the murkrow metagame where everyone had him and let me trace prankster onto gon, but he's mos def not as good right now without that!
I DONT GIVE A FUCK
originally I typoed I DONT GICK A FUVE lol
I wrote a Smog article about it

what is the full and complete history of LC?
But that's only the metagame and I don't think anyone really gives a fuck. We started out in a thread on Smogon where eric and Mr Happy were posting sets in their barely-coherent english until they tried getting it onto Smogon. They were summarily shot down and moved to their own forum, LCF, the mission statement of which was to get LC content on Smogon.
I joined a few days afterwards from Serebii. They showed my the CaP server, and I joined the Smogon to submit a concept for CaP 5 but I don't think I was activated in time ): but yeah
My first post was a post in a LC thread by RicePidgeonKKM and my second a LC warstory that was archived, which put Little Cup out there and renewed interest. eric and the other nigs kept slowly working on the analyses. HeYsUp showed up after I posted my second LC warstory, which was also archived and made me two for two. 100% of mine are archived o;
Yeah so heysup fought with SDS all the time and eric helped him but SDS and CIM hated HYU and eric was too nice. Then, SDS, matty, em, and aldaron helped us get a little, tiny, minisubforum in C&C. Aldy got Gen modded in LC and Gen got the Stark LC forum, which lead to the current tier subforums. Gen and SDS fought all the time and it was terrible I pretty much resigned from the LC Staff at that point. All LC policy was discussed in the channel #lcmods, and Gen and SDS just argued and called each other dickholes all the time. They were both my friends and both were supposed to be team-mates, so I told them they were both being dickheads and left. eric got modded somewhere in the middle of all the tussling.
Then, Gen quit because of all the fighting and he had a Sara Strimple to fuck <:
I got his mods because I played the most and I had tried to keep the staff together and I was friends with most of the LC guys. I got Project Mods and a ladybug. eric and SDS began to bicker as SDS had done. I quietly went about my business. It didn’t matter that they weren’t doing much and were distracted by their BLIND RAGE. It was terrible. HeYsUp got modded later too. Eventually, SDS got demodded for being an asshole, but to this day I do not think it was warranted but whatevs x:
At this point, LC was on Smogon, but was not a “respected” metagame. It still isn’t because you’re all assholes and I’m butthurt etc etc whatever. I took the initiative to run LC’s first suspect test because people were bitching about Missy because LC is full of bitches like OU. It got banned, whatever.
Then like I don’t even care about finishing this story darkie I think literally 0 people give a shit about the history of lc………………
