      "High concept" is not a fancy way to say "highbrow."

        I most often hear highbrow defining humor and I hear High-concept talking about plotlines (books, games and such)

        @arnexks They can both be applied to the same things (humor, plots, speeches, paintings, etc), but we tend to hear people say something is "high concept" when they want to say that something it particularly heady or intellectual or cleverly subtle, except it means the opposite: a message that's really easily conveyed and understood.

        Fun fact.

      I don't know anything about Vampire: The Masquerade, but it (apparently) knows I'm a Malkavian. So...now I have to look that up. Thanks.

        It is one great RPG. One of the best fully voice-acted games I have ever played. A bit short though and it most definitely did not age like fine wine. But I love it nonetheless.

        @Madoka Heh, it didn't. It's a spinoff.

        They're all spinoffs, basically. Which is probably the first thing to understand. And...well, I can go into it a little more, if you're actually interested. Because it's actually mostly a pretty good franchise. Loathe though I am to admit it.

        I had forgotten that s2 had 2 parts... so Fate/kaleid actually has 4 seasons. Funny. I'm interested to see what you will think of 3drei and the vow in the snow movie, since they're quite different from the others.

        @Nekus Oo, something to look forward to, then. (Which I'm saying both sincerely and sarcastically. Because I have no idea if I should be worried or excited.)

        I did S2 pt2 in one sitting, so I'm taking a little bit of a breather. But I'll be back at it soon enough.

      I have only just now heard of the "anime 3x3." I think it's stupid. And of course I'm going to ignore my work and make one, right now.

        @arnexks That you think this? I assume not.

        That Faye isn't a good character until she gets her backstory reveal? I would argue that you're wrong, yeah.

        Same! The show was so good. At least falcon and the winter soldier's on.

        @TeddytheBear Yeah, I didn't think I was going to like it, and then...I mean, you saw it. It was really, really good.

        I have a lot of issues with Falcon and Winter Soldier, from a storytelling perspective, so I'm not loving it as a "replacement" for WandaVision.

        Plus, this one doesn't have Elizabeth Olsen. So.

        I just dropped the DEEN Fate after 3 episodes, it was so mediocre and boring, it made me realise I didn't like anime that much anymore and I took a break.

        @Oceanwithwaves Ha! Oh no! I mean, yeah, it's garbage. I would never deny that.

        Try Fate Zero. If you can't get into that, the franchise is definitely not worth injuring yourself with.

        @Hayane There's a lot to criticize, but the only thing that really bothers me--and bothers me worse than there not seeming to be a plot, 7 episodes in--is this Joan of Arc/homunculus nonsense, the undoubted importance of which I find more worrisome than Jack the Ripper being a loli in a thong.

        But...in for penny, as they say...

      Today, I bought Fate statues, and I don't hate myself as much as I should. Which worries me. But not as much as it should. Which worries me.

        @interregnum: Ooh, what sort of kinky Fate figures did you get? Now I'm really curious. :P You could link the listing here if you're so inclined- or not, lol.

        @Akishima Oh! Of course! Um, yeah, I can do that. I'll give it a go later today.

        And, actually, I didn't get the "kinky" one, even though I wanted to so very, very badly.

        @interregnum: How disappointing- there's so many great sexy Fate figures. I have yet to buy a Saber- I want to, but deciding among probably hundreds of figures is so hard.

      Only Inio Asano could do a flashback in his dour, nihilistic tale of futility that is even more dour and nihilistic than his main storyline.

      When you feel like the fan-favorite girl who loses in the love triangle, remember: your show's not popular enough for a DVD release anyway.
