*Hentai themed anime/manga not counted on AP.

*MAL counts re-watches.

*MAL allows better profile customisation.

*MAL allows users to discuss individual epiosdes/chapters.

*Roriconfan not banned on MAL (that alone should convince everybody!) Well fuck, he is now.

A digital version trumps no version, but there's something unpleasant about reading books on a screen. Well, regardless, it's hardly a bad place to start out with Vonnegut, even if it's not the one that makes all those "best books" lists like Slaughterhouse-five. Are you familiar with Goodreads, by the way? It's a site kind of like this one, but for books. But the real benefit of it is that it takes the books you've read and the ratings you've given, and then recommends further reading. The recommendations are rather decent there. You might appreciate it.

I seem to be the only person in the major to have not encountered Hume at some point, but Descartes, well, I respect the line of thought he started, but his proposed proof of God is so flawed I wonder if it was only inserted out of political pressure. Further, thinkers like Spinoza took that ball and went in more interesting directions with it. But I've seen entire lecture periods get swallowed up in discussing single sentences from the works of these individuals, so this is likely not an ideal place to get too far into these matters (for multiple reasons). But if you enjoy Epicurus, perhaps you'd respond well to the metaphyiscs of Ralph Waldo Emerson. True, he doesn't have the same historical import as a Presocratic, but it's certainly of interest. And a less dry read than, say, Pierce. Although if you're going contemporary, there's always feminist epistemology which seems like Socrates' "What is knowledge" expanded, modernized and contextualized. Although I suppose I'm biased towards suggesting that field since it's the one that recreated that same "world turned upside-down" feeling the Theaetetus did. I can suggest some figures from that field, if your'e interested. You almost make me not want to graduate yet since you remind me there is still so much I am yet to be exposed to while still under the tutelage of professors well versed in their subjects. After all, there was only time to get to one class on Asian literature, and that focused on texts like the Kojiki and The Tale of Genji rather than much in the way of philosophy as the texts you mentioned.

I've no idea what's been put out in Poland, but Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt does at least have a region 2 DVD release, so it's possible that shop might have it. Considering that our scores on anime seem so convergent, I'd advise priortizing that when considering your budget for this. True, it's not the BD release, but modern anime tends to upscale pretty well on a BD player like a PS3. Or they might not have it at all, rendering this moot. But enjoy the glut. Once you get a few episodes into a marathon of a series, it gets much easier to just keep going. Provided you like the series, of course. Before you know it, a few hours have passed and you're almost done with a season of something.

I don't read books unless they were recommended to me, or if they are just something everyone should read (Russian realism stuff like Ana Karenjina).

As for what I would recommend... lets see.... Brave New World, the best dystopian society book ever IMO, Animal Farm, my favorite book, has a million brilliant thoughts and a shitload of symbolism, Hyperion, an excellent scifi/fantasy and possibly Peridio Street Station.

The title that most immediately comes to mind is Cat's Cradle, but outside of that it's hard to pin down a work that's "about religion" rather than "also about" it. And if you're extending it out to that, then it really covers a number of titles to the point of nearly listing his bibliography. Although, to be fair, my local library is missing a few titles of his, so it's possible one of those is a title that focuses largely on religion, or that it's in one of his myriad short stories published in magazines and elsewhere. You could also check some of his nonfiction essay collections, although that'd really get you more of his humanistic views in general rather than much in the way of commentary on religion.

Ah. Would you mind elaborating upon which philosophers? Or at least the general school of thought? Majoring in philosophy necessitates that I be exposed to a decent number of philosophers, but getting a handle on Heraclitus, Hobbes, Harding and Baudrillard is also time consuming enough that it hampers both the time and mental energy to seek too many outside of those academically perscribed. While certainly interesting (the more I learn in the field of epistemology the less I feel I might ever be able to answer Socrates' inquiry in the Theaetetus which initially irked me some years ago), it's far from exhaustive of the field. So I'm curious what you consider worth looking into.

Ah. Part of that's just the result of a new season, so a few of those will probably get dropped within the next few weeks (I pick up almost every new show in a season). Two of those are shorts, which really isn't that demanding. So it's probably only around 6 or 7 full series for the season, ultimately, or just one a day. The rest are just things I can watch whenever. Which, admittedly, still leaves 20-30 series. But you can't really fall behind on finished shows, so there's no real pressure. I mean, I've been in the process of watching Mawaru Penguindrum for around 1.5 years now, although that's an extreme case. But it's only 24 minutes, usually, for an episode of a given anime, and you can watch an entire cour in around five hours. When you look at it like that, it's really not so demanding. It's not even unreasonable to watch an entire series in a day. Once I realized that, I went from usually watching no more than five or so shows at a time like you currently are, to this basically insatiable appetite. After all, once I watch the latest episode(s) of the ongoing series I'm watching, there's nothing until the next show airs an episode, which could be days later. Something's gotta fill the gap. Once you get used to it, it's not as daunting as it initally seems. Otherwise it'd be quite the struggle to finish series like LOGH or Urusei Yatsura.
