As for Dark Shame, it is misforturne.

So, I had typed a mostly completed, very long, detailed response to our last overly long addition to the comment chain, when I stupidly deleted it while transferring data between computers. First world problems, man. I'll do my best to replicate my former magnum opus, even though by this point I don't even recall what I wrote.
It's such a depressing turn of events that your previous devotion and enjoyment of One Piece depreciated because of your fujoshi roommate. At the very least, you are now free to pursue your obsession once more. I cannot express enough my relief that Kise had never watched and thus couldn't taint any series I was/am passionate about. Honestly, while I'm usually not swayed by the obnoxious banterings of fujoshi and otaku, Kise probably would have killed my enjoyment of anything with her suffocating obsession.
I miss our perilous adventures through the cancerous slums of the internet. Next time I see you, we'll have to go touring again so I can introduce more disturbing things to you that you never asked for. I still maintain that the crayfish Aomine picture was not my fault. (僕は悪くない。) I do have to say though, even though I am NOT gay... (I hope you remember this), taking quizzes on which Narooto character you'd be stuck in a closet with for 7 minutes based on a color were blissful times indeed.
I don't think that anyone was delusional enough to think we were normal after all the crap we pulled at WAC. Just to name a few things:
Speaking bastardized Japanese everywhere, playing overly-violent video games (and Naruto) in the Student's Center, singing UtaPri's opening loudly outside at night, maintaining a firm realist position in World Politics, writing oral reports about stealing babies, killing Kise, Medaka Box, and Catherine, constantly talking about colors, being in the Llama's presence... period, animatedly discussing a farming video game, stealing honey mustard sauce, doing exhibitionist cooking, hoarding water bottles, laughing hysterically at Terra Nullius running like a T-Rex, playing P4 and Skyward Sword in East's basement, DARK SHAME, carrying crawfish (or, according to Sensei, a lobster) and scissors keychains, doing anything with the Gamer's Guild, drawing weeaboo stuff on our room's whiteboards, learning lewd/obscene Japanese terms in conversation hour, living off of bagels and popsicles, confusing the heck out of Kise with inside jokes and ERUERUFU. Etc, etc. I have to say though, I completely thought you were a fujoshi when I fist met you. I mean, c'mon, some of the first anime we discussed was KuroBasu, UtaPr, and Hetalia. Conversely, I thought Kise must have decent taste because we talked about 12 Kingdoms and Seirei no Moribito. OH, HOW WRONG I WAS.
I want to see your manga collection someday. I've always wanted lots of manga of my own, but due to the outrageous prices here in the US, the mistranslations, horrible typesetting, and my lack of a bookcase, I never indulged myself. I'm starting to buy some in Japanese, because I can mostly read them now and they make a good language learning tool.
I really do want to pick up OP again soon, and rather surprisingly, my backlog is slowly dwindling with continued effort. What I really need to do is stop picking up so many seasonal anime. By the way, since you're looking for a new anime to pick up for marathoning purposes, why not try Yu Yu Hakusho. While I don't particularly like it as much as I did HxH (they're both by Togashi), my childhood nostalgia prevents me from thinking ill of it. Unfortunately, though, whereas Naruto heavily copied HxH, Bleach copied many ideas from YYH, so in a lot of ways the initial plot may seem unoriginal. I assure you, though, the Dark Tournament Arc is great and really shows how great Togashi is at writing good tournament arcs.
じゃあ、ご褒美あげるよ。Just a preview though. I made it really small so as not to spoil you too much.
Also, when I saw this, I thought of you for some reason.
So, I bought my brother Fire Emblem Awakening for the 3DS for Christmas, and he's been too busy with work to play it so I have. It's really fun. Definitely worth the purchase, if you're looking for a good time-sucker. Of course, being the idiot I am, I started a file on normal mode, decided it was too easy, and promptly started a new file on lunatic mode. Well, it's certainly more challening, to say the least.
Surprisingly, to me anyway, Nyaruko and Imaizumi are fairly unpopular in Japan. Not because they're particularly disliked, but because there are apparently characters from rival teams that are more favored. By the way, what did you think of seaweed hair Senpai? Is it bad that now whenever I hear Showtaro Morikubo's voice, I just see Yosuke's repulsed face in my mind's eye? Even though I watched 6 seasons of him as Goro, stupid Yosuke seems to have made more of an impression.
Consider it the internet's seedy back alley - it's basically the shallowweb, but with more illegality. You can buy drugs, download CP, hire a hit man, etc. I don't recommend it because it's easy to click on the wrong link and get a bunch of illegal crap on your computer. Honestly though, the deepweb is like the worlds most over hyped theme park, you quickly realize theres probably nothing that spooky or crazy on there and if there is you're never gonna access it unless you already knew about it. Someday I'll have to sit you down and find some of the weirder things I've found on the internet for show and tell. Surprise, surprise, most of it's from Japan.
I wish I could have seen your One Piece obsession phase before it was snuffed out by Kise's aspergers... I mean enthusiasm. On second though, I probably wouldn't have ended up "seeing" you very much, considering you probably would have been holed up in your room with a blanket covering both yourself and your computer. I'm totally not suprised your room is drowning in One Piece merch. For the purpose of appearing like a normal, well-adjusted human being, my room looks pretty normal, with the only evidence of my unhealthy obsession with Chinese cartoons being some manga and anime BDs under my desk, although one coversation with me would probably dispel whatever illusion of normality held prior. So, how much anime and manga merch have you obtained over the years? More than what I already saw at WAC?
I have three major hurdles to overcome in watching One Piece. 1) It's still ongoing, and is probably only half-way done. 2) The pacing is glacial and I'd rather not have to wade through countless filler arcs between cannon material. 3) None of the characters individually really appeal to me. I could have maybe liked Sanji if they made him more composed and dropped the womanizer routine. It's not funny. Anyways, I really am going to marathon it someday when I've exhausted my backlog. I need to get some of this crap off my HDD.
No, no, no, no, I can see it now. Kise's watched Shingeki, but she spent almost the entirety of every even mildly violent scene cowering away from the screen, blanket raised to cover her vision and head tilted to the side, with eyes threatening tears. Therefore, she probably only truly "watched" a third of the show. Dude, I have seen some truly heinous fanart for Shingeki come out of Tumblr (as expected) and I bet she saves it with creepy file names addressing the characters as her "babies." I shudder at the thought.
I never know how I should feel about those cosplay cafes and the like. On one hand, it'd be fun to go just for the experience, but on the other hand, the second-hand embarrassment would probably kill me. I bet that Luffy cries himself to sleep every night from the shame.
Silly brother, you ARE Aomine (somehow?) so you better still like yourself. Shame you didn't sing Yura Yura instead.
What are you doing for Christmas? My brother and I are going to marathon Texhnolyze because I want to ruin his Christmas and send him into a depressed state for a few days like the first time I watched it. He only thinks he knows what he's in for. Also, I finished your picture a while ago... you don't want to know how long it took. Seriously, I must have watched 30 or more shows while completing that masochistic project. Do you want me to send it to you or try to give it to you in person sometime? Some of the inside jokes may require a reminder and you're proooobably gonna need a magnifying glass to read some of my handwriting.
I'll give you my tl;dr breakdown in another message cause this one's getting excessively long. Congratulations if you actually read the whole thing.
