I just finished the anime and manga of Akame Ga Kill! I don't want to read Zero or the contiuation anime, as it is most likely caving to the audience. I need other things to watch or read now, beyond what I am already reading.
Yeah, it is, but I don't actually read science fiction or much genre fiction in general so I'm not someone to have those discussions with. I used to have people here read Borges, who I would recommend to anyone, but he's very challenging. Goethe's The Sorrows of Young Werther is short and good, very influential work.
Oh, but if you recommend Borges then that must mean you enjoy magic realism, isn't it? Isabel Allende, Gabriel García Márquez, Juan Rulfo or Julio Cortázar, to name a few sublime writers of the genre in the iberoamerican ambit.
Is Borges still your favorite author, Beatrice? I read most of his works, but fell in line with Italo Calvino who took a more postmodern- multi-dimensional narrative. I have to say that Toni Morrison is by far my favorite and most read author, which covers some magical realism (Beloved). Goethe hasn't been on my list much, probably even less than Melville.
Yeah, but in regards to Borges and his peers, the ones you mention, I've arrived to and escaped from him through recommendations and other authors, like Schopenhauer or some detective fiction, which he breaks apart incredibly.
Borges is not my favorite (Ovid followed by Lucretius are), but I like him a lot. Goethe is one of the most important and excellent artists in the western tradition, I'd say far more important than anyone any of us have named minus perhaps Ovid, who was a major influence for Shakespeare and Dante among countless others. In regards to Toni Morrison I've only read Jazz five years ago and it was okay. I read a lot more poetry than actual novels.
As I mentioned earlier, I have an Arthurian heart, so I tend to stick with traditional romances, Arthurian Romances, french romances, etc. It is my main area of study, along with genre theory. When it comes to the Western Tradition, the textual nature of it extends beyond just the major influences of Goethe, Shakespeare, Ovid. And the more interesting works of the Western Tradition extend into Literary Theory and forms of interpretation, at least where I stand in contention with how I interact with it.
H.P. Lovecraft is an author I have been getting more into, but mostly his detective stories since they play games with the genre and parallel with his idea of the supernatural, weird fiction, and abject novels. It is what I am currently trying to understand, so "The Lurking Fear" is a big continuum for me.
Though, I have been getting back into C. S. Lewis because of his Allegory of Love collection of essays. I tend to read a lot more works that relate to literature/poetry than novels/books themselves, now. I am still reading Umineko, just trying to find the Graphic Novels locally is tough.

ARMS is getting a rep in Smash, but the character in question won't be announced till June (which is when it'll come out too).
Hold on, so that means Assist Trophies still have the chance of being introduced as playable characters?! There is hope for Midna and Waluigi!

New archetype in Casual Multiples is out! Ever wanted a gimmicky lockdown deck that loves equip spells, and slowly torturing your opponent? Well now you have one! Introducing the "Chaotic" archetype, it's fresh, new, and ready for some criticism!

So unless you're working or getting food, you will either be fined $1000 or serve 6 months jail time for not being at home. Senate is still working to overturn the decision of that Negative Nancy so we can have our money.
Suggestion on how to change somebody's mind: Put them in a cage with Brock Lesnar and lock it until they see things your way.

Just 100% Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and as went to fight the final boss again, since it doesn't count it if you don't it seems, it crashes, which seems about right from my experience with this game. Yeah, this game is a glitchy mess, from game crashes to slowdown, to freezing randomly for a few seconds, to getting stuck in the wall and falling through the game world, to assets not loading right away, to the camera not being able to catch up with you. I love this game, but man the glitches.

Overall a good (and somewhat predictable banlist). My only complains are: The ban on destrudo, Mali again at 2 (WHY dammit) and no hits on Elpy, the later is weird considering we will have REDMD without errata
Also a semi limit (minimum) of oviraptor would ve been nice
Like I said for the OCG banlist, TCG also needs to make up its damn mind about Malicious.
