Haven’t commented in here in a long time, but I gotta say this is the most impressive Kongpanion I have seen.

Either you’re a slow reader or you actually read the flash text.

Neither. What I said was an exaggeration, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the dialogues are definitely faster than most anime out there.

Anyways, I finished first season of Silver Spoon. It’s such a well-made deconstruction of the agriculture industry. The themes aren’t fairly obscure, but it does bring out multiple interpretations on multiple issues that are more relevant to the real world. I don’t see that a lot in anime.

The animation is average at best and the characters are mostly cardboard cutouts, but that’s not very important in this particular show since it’s not plot-heavy. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a more realistic and mature SoL.

Topic: Off-topic / Why do people complain about things being overrated?

Overrated means that you enjoy it less than how the majority perceives the thing. Its popularity isn’t (or shouldn’t) be the reason that you’re not enjoying it. Of course, there are people out there that just wants to hate on things because they’re popular, but that’s another issue.

Watched the first two episodes of Silver Spoon, and it’s really freaking good. It’s a pretty mature SoL with a more accessible theme (goals and dreams). It’s similar to Space Brothers in that respect, but I think this show is a lot more entertaining. I don’t expect it to get any better, but it’s pretty likely that it will stay consistently good for the whole show. Looking forward to it!

Not to mention that I’m a sucker for anime with boarding school.

Originally posted by AmaneAkaike:

Feminism ain’t about equality, well-known feminist such as the ‘Femitheist Divine’ or ‘Big Red’ fought for female rights and they opress men. So yeah, ain’t about equality.

It is about equality. Those proclaimed “feminists” just don’t know how to be one.

Topic: Off-topic / Worst class you have for school

Worst as in having the worst teacher who fails at teaching, probably photography. She had no idea what she was doing and just gave out free A’s at the end of the semester because she can’t bother grading the photos.

That was last year. Most teachers in my school aren’t outright horrible like that photography teacher, so it should be fairly enjoyable/tolerable this year. If I have to choose, it would probably be English.

Sure, it’s okay. Who’s gonna punish you for it? The grudge police?

I would probably hate them for it, but I wouldn’t plot a revenge against them. Time usually cures this type of issues.

Welp, that wraps it up. We’re both right so long we’re using our own definition.

I’m not going to reply to part of your posts because it won’t get anywhere since we have different definition of personality.

Because motivation and reasoning are not characteristics or qualities.

Characteristic is any attribute that a person or thing possesses. I don’t see how motives and reasoning are not characteristics just because they’re not physically visible. They’re all part of him and makes up his personality.

This argument isn’t really going to work since I understand that there are different definition of the word. If we’re going by your definition, then yes, simple adjectives (optimistic, rash, etc) aren’t enough to represent a person’s beliefs. If we’re going by my definition of personality, then all those mental attributes do support certain beliefs.

I didn’t say he had no personality, I said he barely has one, yet still manages to represent utilitarianism well despite this.

That’s just rhetorical to me. I would even argue that he has one of the more in-depth personality in the show. He’s one of the few characters in the show that actually had a decent reason to participate in the war (explained in the flashback).

Personality “has to do” with all of this, but the actual definition of the word is that it’s a collection of characteristics or qualities. Yes, motivation and reasoning can influence personality, but that doesn’t make them part of personality itself.

Personality is made up of all those things. It doesn’t “influence” personality, it is part of the personality. If personality is “the collection of characteristics or qualities”, then the characteristics or qualities would be the things I listed. I don’t really see how you’re getting the idea that those things aren’t part of it. All those things are exactly what makes up personality.

He has almost no personality, but his character still makes a strong statement against Utilitarianism.

Not having emotion doesn’t mean he doesn’t have personality.

I disagree. Personality is what is directly observable about the character, while his method of reasoning falls beyond that.

Wikipedia’s definition: personality has to do with individual differences among people in behavior patterns, cognition and emotion.

Personality is the combination of motivation, reasoning, attitude, and other mental attributes. They’re all interrelated.
