    You can solo Arthas at lvl 90 with the right class. Death Knight I believe can solo him. Probably Paladin too. Well I like that more than the rather ridiculous 25 ppl to kill one man to be honest. Then it's more in line with WC3 with "heroes vs heroes" xD

    I guess he's like the "guardian of the earth" or something like that. He had a big role in the third expansion. I don't remember the details. I mean he left the Horde and all.

    Sure, but we had this discussion before.

    Yeah, just would prefer it as an actual solo game xD

    Yeah, seems like this guy called Med'an is the current Guardian, lulz.

    We had, but I still want it really badly One is still allowed to dream, even if it seems impossible.

Well in this case I would've preferred my imagination. Too little had happened in one year for me. Zero progress for Jintan as a character, not just his love life. I mean wtf the ending suggested he was finally moving on, going back to school and getting his life together. Now he still is a drop out it seems, while he doesn't seem to be emo, far from it, he still hasn't moved on. He's basically the exact same guy as before the series only not emo. It really annoyed me how the small hints dropped in the ending seemed to not be true at all. He didn't move on, go back to school and get his life together. He didn't build any form of a start of a relationship with Anaru. Nothing at all happened. Jintan and Anaru, mainly Jintan is my only real complaint. The others are more as expected. While Yukiatsu isn't dating Chiriko, they've both moved on/continued on with their life. They're obviously gonna get together sooner or later, and there's been progress for them, although slower than expected. They're just taking it super slow, lol. They only really lack officially dating. Ponpon is like expected, lol.

    The nice parts of the movie were parts like seeing how good friends they are now, even though it seems like they barely meet so it's a little odd. Seeing Menma's family having moved on etc.

    But it really made me cringe at the lack of any progress in the movie. The girls basically saying casually they'd "eventually say something" was so ... come on... Awkward moment with Anaru wanting to confess (again) at a reunion meant to focus on Menma, obviously bound to fail. Don't know what she was thinking, god the fail.

    The thing is Menma was what was kind of wrong with the group. While she bound them together she also made a tension within it. When Menma is still being too focused on there's always going to be that awkwardness of Jintan and Yukiatsu always thinking about her before the others. God...

    My point is the movie really didn't show too much in terms of progress for half the key characters, and didn't progress their lives at all either. It almost literally served no purpose but to provide fanservice, which kind of cheapened its value to me. The worst part is it left me really frustrated, kind of like the series. After finishing the movie at first I was like "ok, whatever, LOL!", then I thought some more about it and realized "yup, this is why it was frustrating". And then I got a little withdrawals and it's so annoying to hope the movie was going to provide SOME progress in their lives but provide almost zero. MEH. Guess I kind of liked it despite all the negativity rant (it really wasn't that bad, I'm just too much of a fanboy and it was kind of bad. YES IT WAS TERRIBLE. On a serious note it wasn't very good due to the reasons mentioned above about progress blablal....)

    Notice I'm not even talking about the flashbacks! A tl;dr I didn't mind them until sometime halfway through the movie, then I got really annoyed at they kept dragging out and I started to realize nothing REAL would happen in the movie as there would be too little time left. ----- SIGH ------

    [/rant]
    Kinda the opposite opinion I had. The only stuff I agree with is the romance between Jintan and Anaru, but way more focused on Anaru. Who is the one who's always loved Jintan? Anaru, not the other way around. I'm not sure what you expected from Jintan. Okay so Menma is gone and now I'm a good boy and start to go to school owning like a boss. Maybe I have that opinion because of how much the human mind was part of my education training, emotional scars don't vanish that easily nor does behaviour change that fast. He basically was a shut-in before the Menma case, now he goes to school somewhat regularly and is able to finish the class, I call that quite the achievement. No way he can change that drastically just like that. He's on a good way, probably just doesn't know what he really wants to do yet. He never was in love with Anaru either, while he basically never got over Menma (only some short time ago). Don't expect him to do anything in that direction, he's too focused on his everyday life atm, and like I said needs to find his own goal. Anaru needs to be more straightforward, then again she's always been more of a coward. A kind coward but still. She should do more, that pretty much was the only complaint I had with the movie.
    Agreed on Yukiatsu/Chiriko.

    To me how often they actually meet is a bit of a mystery, they never defined it that clearly. Doesn't sound like it's too often but then again, they each have their own stuff to deal with. At least it seems like they really are close friends now and behave like that, best example was the convo between Anaru and Chiriko on the phone. To me it became especially apparent there that they all don't try to hide their true personality any longer, like they were freed from their shackles. If anything, that was the achievement they all gained from the encounter with Menma, besides rebuilding their friendship.

    In any case, the movie was never supposed to show much progress, maybe you expected a bit too much from my words. I meant it in case regarding how they developed, something where we seem to mostly disagree xD All the important stuff was hinted at/shown glimpses of, so that already was more than I expected.
    Didn't mind the flashbacks either, besides one time I think. Outside of that one I am enough of a fanboy to enjoy/drown in the sad moments again. Like I said, I cried again when they parted with each other and Menma was writing those messages for them etc.
    So I got what I wanted (minus Anaru/Jintan romance/development) and am pleased with the movie.

    Hmm, to me sounds like we don't disagree that much in terms of the characters. Mostly on Jintan really. Not much Anaru could've done. Everyone else moved on much more easily than Jintan did. I guess it does make some sense that he's still that far back. Maybe I interpreted it too strongly as him still being a dropout. He is indeed going to finish the class so seems like I overhyped that aspect. I agree Anaru should be more direct. My main point about their duo is that nothing has really happened. It seems strange to me that Anaru whom confessed rather abruptly in the series still hasn't done anything. I mean the second time should be way easier when Jintan already knows how she feels. But they do seem to hang out although with others at the same time, like the karaoke event, so it's not 100% bad. The rest of the characters we agreed on.

    I don't really buy the "was never supposed to show much progress". I mean we basically knew zero about the movie besides it being some content from 1 year later + major flashback content. There could've easily been progress here. Honestly to me it seemed a bit weak in terms of progress. The storytellers could've been a bit more generous IMO when they were going to give us an "epilogue" to begin with. At least some hints you know, especially towards Jintan/Anaru. The others are pretty much settled but we didn't even get a HINT of Jintan and Anaru's relationship being in development, just that Anaru liked the Jintan whom was in love with Menma and would MAYBE make her move sooner or later. Just a hint and I would've been way more satisfied really. Her almost confession could've been just that. She wouldn't have needed to confess, just make them touch and be comfortable with it or something or something. Or just have a decent moment up there just talking a bit.

    Well yeah, I'm with you :^) Though Anaru didn't really "confess", it was more like hinting at it heavily without ever saying it clearly. Like I said too much else happened and changed in Jintan's life, so if someone needs to make a move it's Anaru. I guess they didn't have the balls to give us something substantial lol, but I agree it would've been nice if they somehow hinted at them getting closer to each other. That Anaru did nothing even after a year is somewhat ridiculous, if you love someone you have to fight for him. The extremely little steps she's taking are not enough, by far. I guess it somehow fits her character, she probably still fears rejection from a Jintan who isn't over Menma completely, at least that's what I could see her imagine. After a year and the letter where she even told Menma her feelings it's time to move on though, so even if the confession failed they should've made her "Yeah I'm convinced now, gonna make my move soon" like what Tsuruko said. I assume they didn't have the courage to go for that, honoring/respecting the dead is such a huge deal in Japan. If you have somewhat conservative people working on the movie it almost makes sense.

    I think I already elaborated on that part in my earlier post. I think they gave us enoug hints regarding anything, besides Jintan/Anaru ofc. That's a disappointment, but does not make me think badly of the whole movie. They could've been a tad bit more generous in general, but like you mentioned too some producers simply prefer to only hint at things and leave the rest up for imagination. What they've shown was a good mix of that, so I'm satisfied (minus Anaru/Jintan again).

    Re: (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) BDC ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ノ

    Alright I'll just agree with most you said and enjoy the convo for what it was Maybe I'll rewatch the movie minus the flashbacks.

    It's going pretty good. I'm "done" yes, but I won't get my diploma before I finish ONE small (5pt) course ((courses are 5 or 10pt)). And no I did not fail the subject. In fact I got a B. tl;dr: I did a Master's course during my Bachelor because all the Bachelor courses sucked/were boring. Later on it got locked to my Bachelor's Degree, when the plan was to switch it with a course of choice that I'd take on my Master's. For 1 1/2 years everything was fine and the courses had "traded places" on my educational plan. Then in April my student advisor suddenly emails me and says "oh btw you won't get a diploma due to lacking 5pt" and I'm like "WTF??", then I got extremely mad as she basically fucked me over and there was no way to fix it. Believe me I went through the entire hierarchy and adminsitration. Fucking bureaucracy. So now I have to take a single course, because I "lack" 5pt, which I DO HAVE but I got 5pt at the WRONG degree. I got 300pt (what u need from 5 years), and 70 pts in my main profile (strategy and leadership), but 5 of those 70pts are at my Bachelor's degree and locked there, so yeah.

    That turned into the almost full story I guess. So now the plan is to apply for jobs. No one cares about that technicality. So I'm just applying as if I have a physical Master's Degree. All they'll see is I got 300pts and all the courses I need, as no one has a diploma already physically anyway. So I'm job hunting and I'm listed up for a 10pt subject this semester. It's a course I had before, but then as 5pt, since then it was increased to 10, so I get 5pt for free basically. No need to go to class, do assignments and all that shit, just do the exam in December and get free 5pt. Easy exam too.

    Otherwise I'm good, but that problem really consumed time, distracted me during my final weeks of thesis writing and pissed me off rather much. Still makes me annoyed but whatever. Taking that subject is easy as fuck anyway and like I said all I have to do is do jack shit until December and do an exam then I got what I need, so it's not that big of a deal, just an annoyance.

    Sounds like I said something wrong, or do you feel like we won't come to an agreement beyond this point?

    _____________

    Your rants are so refreshing :^)

    Sounds ridiculous, honestly. Almost something that could happen here easily too, sometimes you really have to wonder about a system that is so stiff that it leaves no room for flexbility.
    Well looks like it's not that much of a deal for you though, so that's good to hear. Good luck with the job hunting ofc! Any place you're specifically aiming to get into?

    A consulting job would be the best match. Of course I'd love a major big shot firm, like PwC or something, but those firms are incredibly hard to get into. I've sent applications though so I might be lucky, as long as I get an interview my chances are the same as everyone else more or less. I'm trying to get anything within big firms though, not necessarily consulting, as if I get into the corporation it's easier to change jobs within it later/promotions etc. Plus any experience is relevant really. Just need to get a foot in somewhere.

    Yeah it's really ridiculous. No one I've talked to really understand how it's not possible to fix. It's beyond me as well. Really stiff bureaucracy bullshit. Oh well.

    No you said nothing wrong. Just felt like we had voiced our respective opinions, plus my rant was long enough without another major section :^)

    What exactly would you in a consulting job? Something like counseling?

    Ofc, only go for the best Funnily enough I'm job-hunting right now too, shouldn't be too hard. Probably going to enjoy my time until October and then work hard

    Doesn't really matter in the end but yeah, stuff like that is so annoying. It's everywhere like that here in Germany.

    Indeed it was, nothing buts a fun wall of text
