I like the way you think, next step would be to move to Japan and reign supreme there!

... Because that's totally what people who have just met on the internet do, right?

Definitely. And then we might as well reign supreme everywhere.

Totally. I expect nothing less. :p

Yeah, we can totally do that while we are at it. Just a little side-quest to kill some time: like "Hey Hazel, I'm kinda hungry. Do you know any good fish and chips place where they don't quite overcook the meal? Cuz I hate those. By the way, do you want to take over the world with basketballs?" :P

Exactly. The perfect plan. On that note, I do actually know some great fish and chips places (and now I'm hungry)

I'm on board with taking over the world. :p

So you do! Lead the way and we can enjoy some of the best food in the world (so I heard, I haven't had the pleasure of having it just yet) before destroying that very same world. We are so clever.

Can we top it off with English chocolate? Can we? :D

Sounds ideal! Oh my, I must introduce you to the wonders. We are the most intellectual beings to grace the Earth.

Of course, of course. I will treat you to a wide variety. :D

I'm mad at you because you decided to wait until 2016 to join. Bad person :P!

Oh dear, that would be so cool! I can quite picture the whole thing as being super serious in our own way (so it would be a clown show on disguise xD) with you telling me to choose wisely between sauces and whatnot (I'll pay for your drink if you put a Mr Miyagi voice while doing it xD) :D

Absolutely, we saw the wheel, put it sideways and invented the roulette :P

Same here but hey, good things come to those who wait! ;)

Oh, definitely. We'd think it's a matter of life and death, as it should be. Sauces are important. (Hahaha, yes, perfect! I'll do it! xD)

Absolutely!

Well, after eleven days of sharing boards with you, I can safely say: where's my ban hammer? :P

No, really, I completely agree. I didn't think I would be enjoying this conversation and just having you around this much, but here I'm. Thanks for joining this forum :)

Now, let's go back to being complete idiots xD

I'll have to repay you with some of my own food! Bet you haven't had an asado (Argentine BBQ. It's just too good) yet. Don't eat in like a week, you are going to need that space if you want to enjoy it all :D

You double-crosser! :P

Ahh, I'm glad to hear that and same here! I'm having a blast, it's great getting to know you, and everyone else!

Yes!

Oh gosh. You had me at food, anyway. My mouth is watering at the sound of it. I'd leave so much room for it.

Oh totally, I'm the very definition of that. But, being Hazel, you kind of outrank me xD How dare you? :P

Thanks! I'm glad you are having fun (that's kind of our main goal here).

:D

Niiiice, I will be buying the ingredients then (let me do the math real quick: food for two, so I should buy an entire cow. Sounds about right :D).

I like your confidence. :p Exactly!

Dang. This will be a feast to remember, then. :D

Of course I'm confident, that's how I react around my friends ;)

I know, right? Hope you don't have anything to do for the next two days; there's gonna be so much to eat, heat, and eat again :D

Nice. ;)

I sure don't, and if I do, I'm cancelling plans. I've got eating to do.

I know, right? SCREW social-life, work and obligations. Just let me eat, damn it :P

Hey, going back on-topic for a while (don't worry, we will continue to derail this thread immediately afterwards :P): What do you think of Akashi? The animè made SUCH a big deal of him, hiding him in shadows and putting him as a silhouette for more than a season, just building up the expectations and letting the "unknown surprise" factor play along -quite effectively, I may add-.

But then he just played a few games on Season 3 and, while he was scary and the like, he wasn't quite what I was expecting. I think that Murasakibara actually had a better use of his -equally as limited- screentime regarding character development.

Don't get me wrong, the last game against Seirin and the whole arc explaining his backstory redeemed him a LOT, but still. I feel like they could have done something better with him.
