    I know hello and goodbye, and that's basically about it. Haha..

    I wasn't trying to be mean but their fascination with almost underage looking animated girls. I find that amusing.

    Japan likes to push every boundary, and that's one of the reasons I love them. As for their art style, there are so many you can't really pin it down to just one kind. The "underage looking animated girls" thing has a number of different perspectives. Usually, they represent innocence, trust, structure, and all of the positives we would hope to find in a civilized society.

    This is wholly from my very white and male point of view (so take it with a grain of salt), but Japanese people look much younger than their ages, at least to these eyes. A 40 year old Japanese man or woman may look 20 to me, so I don't really look at it as some kind of perversion, not that you're alluding to such. They just look young. Plus, a lot of manga in Japan centers around school, probably because it represents the culture, structure, and discipline I mentioned earlier.

    In the case of Rosario+Vampire, they attend a private school, which could be high school or college, I can't quite remember. Regardless, my favorite character is Mizori, though Moka (the lead character) is all kinds of sweet but badass, because she's a vampire, and has all these great abilities she uses to beat the *yay* out of monsters. It's a fun show, though it is an adult show, so, you know, keep that in mind if you decide to check it out.

    Yup. I just stumbled upon it the other day while trying to find a good one of Rey. I liked it because it matches the default Win10 colors.


    It's not proper R+V without a panty shot.[/QUOTE]

    Hey @Coco Pops 1967, HE'S BEING IRONIC! Or more specifically, irony as deflection from his own, uh, involvement. ;)

    Current one for me as I found a bug in my game that gave me one extra item..... I seem to be the only one anywhere that has had this happen as well. Yay for me.

    Low Earth Orbit.

    The view is looking down at the surface of the Earth, through the cupola windows on the International Space Station. Seen holding a camera is Italian astronaut Sam Cristoforetti, who took lots of nifty pictures from there.
