The further back we go I regress in the amount of stuff I've watched but here's mine:

2012: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
2013: Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio
2014: Amagi Brilliant Park
2015: Death Parade
2016: Re: Zero
2017: Youjo Senki

and I will point out that for some of these there were multiple ones I wanted to put but ultimately went with the ones that I felt left the bigger impression on me

Animation / AOTY: A Look Back
« Last post by tormaid on 2017-04-27 10:42:18 »
So, there is this thing going around that finally made it to anime twitter the other day when Miles from Crunchyroll posted this:


A few of us in Facebook chat got into it and posted our own lists, but I wanted to make a single spot to do that where everybody can see them, so I made this thread. So, with that, here is my list:

2012: Shinsekai Yori
2013: Nagi no Asukara
2014: Fate/Stay Night UBW
2015: Hibike! Euphonium
2016: Re:Zero
2017: Legend of the Galactic Heroes

There is no reason you can't go back further than five years, either, or include movies, so get creative with it!

So bwbScram and I were telling people about this at Littlejohn's a while back, but couldn't find the review for whatever reason.

It's one of the reviews for Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton, VA.

Not quite 30 seconds but, eh, close enough.

This is an abomination.

It's an old meme, but there's just so many anime inside-jokes that it's a must watch.

I hate it when people perpetuate false information... I guess this is a reminder to always triple-check compatibility. 

As an aside, I had some kind of driver issue with my basic scrub webcam/mic that chipmunked me and rendered me completely unintelligible (one of the more frustrating yet hilarious software issues I've had) so someone gifted me a Blue Snowball mic, and it's by far the nicest USB mic I've ever used. The sound quality is noticeably improved from before, even just in game chat. (Maybe I'll get noticed on Twitch now lol ^^; )

:^)

The mic issue was super weird though... Must be a Windows 10 thing, though, since it works on your sister's computer fine, right?

I've recently started making batches of miso soup to save for a quick breakfast. You can make the quick & easy kind or go all #effort on it and do it the real and proper way, which is surprisingly rewarding. The finished soup only keeps 2-3 days FYI.

The full recipe is here.

The quick recipe is here. (Makes soup FULL of greens; I'd add half as much for a more traditional broth-y soup.)

About the ingredients:

  • You can use any kind of miso; it's at most supermarkets. Red (aka) is more strongly flavored than white (shiro); I use awase miso, which is both together. It keeps for a long time, basically until you see mold or if it dries out too much.
  • You can soak the wakame beforehand in warm or cold water, or just pour the soup over it; there are different schools of thought on this but it doesn't seem to make too much of a difference.
  • You can add dashi broth or not, but I think it enhances the flavor. I use little dashi sachets that I got at the fish market on West Main; just simmer for 5 mins and you have broth. The instructions on all the ones I found are in Japanese, but they should be easy to follow with a little Google Translate (or send me a pic and I can help).
  • Firm tofu seems to work the best IMO.

For an alternative recipe you can use mushrooms, potatoes, seaweed, onion, shrimp, fish, clams, and/or sliced daikon (according to wiki). They usually try to follow the seasons and mix contrasting ingredients, like floating/sinking or mild/strongly flavored. In a pinch I have made carrot and onion miso soup and it was not bad at all.

Or you can just use the instant packets; I won't judge you. :P
