I'm not expert, but unless the water was disinfected using chlorine or chloramine, or has salts, it should be fine for the fish. Although they do say bacteria can grow in it after bottling, so it's best to open the bottle and let it sit for a while before giving it to the fish.
...But if they're somehow managing to live in a tiny fish bowl like the one the teacher was in, I doubt they'd be that picky about ph levels and what not.

How quick people are to forget. It's funny to think some things can be such massively popular hits one day, only to quickly fall into obscurity the next. I truly can not remember the last time I saw anyone so much as mention evangelion, where as it used to be all anyone could talk about for the longest time. Likewise it's hard to look back and believe something like k-on or lucky star was once a massive hit. I guess without new material to hold people's interest, this is doomed to hit everything sooner or latter. Just seems a bit sad to think about.

>How quick people are to forget
I don't know that online places you frequent besides this one, but Evangelion (and many other not-current-year) series have constant talk, even more so in active image boards (than say, specific community forums). I think the rule of thumb is very simple in this case: If it ever was massively popular, then it will retain that popularity forever; you can still find occasional discussion on ever older series like Lupin and even ancient stuff like Mazinger. Series like "Saber Marionette" stopped being go-to topics after moe anime became commonplace, same with others like "Oh! My Goddess".

What's up with the /b/-tier replies though?

Is... is this a serious post? It gets mentioned and referenced so incredibly frequently that I've grown outright sick of anything to do with it, despite loving it during its original run.

Wow, I just gave my opinion. I think you need to chill, there's no reason for that kind of talk.
>> No. 28060 [Edit]
Saber Marionette and OMG are still quintessential. I mean, Saber Marionette even discusses moe instead of just having it there, and OMG is definitely a high point and a tie-in to other nerdy and intellectual shit that correlates with liking moe. Maybe it's that people who consume moe are quickly bored, and the best works aren't discussed at the expense of newer ones. Look at us, we have an active thread for fucking Tooru the Magic Dragon Maid, but threads with topics are either inactive or stupid.

Then again, in person things are different. The common ground everyone shares is usually the classics (at least from mid-nineties onward) and it's easy to dive into an in-depth conversation of these works. I guess you can't really go "exactly! and even more, it's like this and that, too" here when you have to wait days for a response, if you get any. Do we even have a population of active and good conversants here? At least three or four are required to get anything going.

I didn't see K-on as interesting to begin with. The girls are cute but... I guess it ultimately lacked the depth of, say, Azumanga or Lucky Star. Speaking of Asumanga, do you guys remember Masamune Shirow? That guy put out some lasting masterpieces. Depth everywhere you step to the extent that reading his works is like walking in a swamp, at least until the third or fourth time. The latest anime with substance I remember was Cross Ange, and that was terribly articulated. Anime like that will be easily forgotten since nobody even picked it up when it aired. Kill la Kill is the latest really good anime, and it still gets content and discussion. The latter should get even better now that the edgemasters and perverts are looking for their next fix away from klk.

Airsoft doesn't have plastic caps. That's for toy guns that don't shoot.

It's next to impossible to get one legally, though.

In the US, airsoft guns must be sold with orange caps. Once you own it you're free to remove them.

Similar to my nation.
Were there a social stigma towards firearms, in Japan, I doubt highly-accurate replicas, such as Airsoft, would be as successful as it is.
The law is the law; most governments don't make it easy to get a firearm, Japan is more pedantic about it.

Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

Well, there's Sakura, a character that appears in the sequel, and zoken, another character that appears in the sequel, and then there is a character that didn't exist or was ever mentioned sequel at all. It's not hard to guess what the conclusion of the story was going to have to be.

To make things worse, the writers first thought up the ideas for fights and then half-assed the rest of the story to set the stage for those fights.
>> No. 27993 [Edit]
Yeah I get the "because prequel" aspect, just seems like they could have written that a bit better. Like you said it seems half-assed. I haven't read the original work but Kariya seems really poorly established in the anime for such a tragic character, and even for someone who's Japanese they seem a little too eager to kill themselves. I'd like to think just about anyone else would have tried to find an alternate solution before selling their soul to the devil.
>> No. 28020 [Edit]
Having seen it for the first time myself last month I can't say I get what it's all about. It felt like a long version of 'The Ant and the Grasshopper', focused on the Grasshopper. If the boy had any brains he would've stayed at his aunt's place while helping out a bit. Instead he chose to ignore reality and fool around all day while the country was in a terrible state and he knew he has noone to rely on but himself (by his own choice). Too bad he got his sister caught up in that shit.

It's not like it was a story of some country hit by a massive famine, where everybody just dies out of hunger. Sure, times were really tough, but with the resources they had at hand they could've survived without even being malnuornished. One of the final scenes, where the rich girls move into the villa across of their riverside hideout and listen to some music shows that the resources weren't that scarce. It's not even the difference between the bourgeois and the poor that you see there. It's the difference between ants and grasshoppers.

As such everything that happened in the movie was just desserts and it didn't make me feel much. There are many depressing movies and TV anime where bad things happen to good people for little reason and it's just hard to watch. This wasn't a 'bad things happen to good people' movie. It was a 'dumb people reap what they sow' one.

Whelp, I was surprised to see this was a full length anime, not some half or even 3 minute deal as I assumed it would be.
The animation is absolutely atrocious, but I found myself getting used to it after a while.
Been a while since I watched a MMD style anime like this (or whatever the hell was used to animate this) so isn't my first rodeo, and as such it wasn't a deal breaker for me. To an extent I agree, many of the characters are cute, but some have pretty retarded looking designs that seem like they were half assed and/or created by someone who was drunk. Blatant budget/quality issues aside, it's not without it's charm. It's hard to nail down the appeal, but I suppose you could say it's very quaint.
Also, the grade of Japanese used in this is so simplistic combined with such a simple premise that subs are really unnecessary.
I also kinda like the idea of exploring how humans relate to other animals in the wild and how they would naturally function in the ecosystem without technology. Growing up I'd always see animals with sharp claws, incredible speeds, camouflage, toxins and all sorts of special traits, and it would make me wonder what nature gave humans in that respect. we're slow, weak, and have no natural weapons after all. For the longest time I was convinced it was our intelligence and ingenuity that was what made us special, then I saw the transformers movies and tossed that idea out the window. Kidding aside it was nice to see them touch on that, and demonstrate the issues with energy conservation and efficient heat distribution that would allow prehistoric man to chase down prey that would literately get tired of running from their hunters and collapse, allowing humans to walk right up to them for the kill.

I see the art director from Tesagure! Bukatsumono (TATSUKI) is credited as the director for this, neato!

I wouldn't have guessed however that Serval's VA was a complete noob with only one previous credit. They're not half bad at all.
What's also surprising is Kaban(bag)'s VA being Uchida, Aya (Minami, Kotori), They've done a few low budget works before but still...
