Anime can be just as addictive, you know.

Poor Myoopi. Sad

Hey guys, I wanted to let you know I finished my Nina costume! Here's a crappy cell phone pic of it:



Here's me wearing it at a convention a couple weekends ago:

Was that a clump of rice in Myoopi's bowl? I thought it ate castor sugar.

I love how Kevin wants Nina to go from one obsession back to another. Forget that game! Watch them DVDs!

*Edited: For does not equal forget.

This is the one that hits close to home for me. At one point I got obsessed playing Last Chaos a couple years back and ended up not watching anime for weeks. And I found I just happened to sleep in class everyday. So... I quit. Anime hyper
And once again I came back to the world of anime! Although, anime is so much more addicting than MMORPG's at times.

This is precisely why I don't have a new-gen console or WoW.

I hope Nina feeds Myoopi before doing anything else, hopefully Kevin kept an eye on him. Despite the great comic, the fact Nina neglected Myoopi to play a video game is quite unsettling to me.

If done in bulk quanity, anything can get addictive.

Name one time when it isn't.

MMORPGs have daily server maintenance, program/computer crashes, network lag/drops ... plenty of times where it tells you to just go outside or read a book (or twelve.) Anime hits the end of a DVD and reminds you to grab the next one over when you put it back on the shelf.

... ... Besides, Kevin has nothing to complain about, she is simply branching out to explore a new facet of the anime community. Namely collectors with too many other things they want to do that saps quality time away from marathoning anime DVDs. Or so I'm told *eyes dart side-to-side*

Great job on that costume there! Smile

MMORPGs...yeah, I don't play those. My time is already divided up enough as it is between work and anime. Even with the anime, I'm at present moment already watching up to 27 shows at once, at a rate of anywhere from 6 to 15 shows a day. (I just got in 12 different animes this month, shit was SO cash.)

No matter what, I guess any hobby can be addictive.

@SailorButterfly: Is your Myoopi "anatomically correct"?

In other (cruder) words, is he stuffed like a piñata?

To be honest... I want to play one of those games... but I'm scared... scared that I'll be just as addicted as Nina. That I'll abandoned everything... my fanfics, my friends, my fanfics, my family, my fanfics, my cat, my novel... did I mention my fanfics... seriously... I'm one of the most famous writer's on fanfiction.net... I'm not abandoning my fans... That and I can't abandon my novel (well 2nd novel)... I'm passed the half point, I can't abandoned it! Thank you Kevin for saving Nina! Thank you Kevin!

I can't help but feel that Kevin really did this for her own good. That "I Can Dance" comment actually creeped me out for a bit; it seemed as if Nina had started confusing her real persona with the GuildHammer avatar.

The reputation for WoW players is so pervarsive, at times I find myself thinking exactly this too. Except for the whole writing part...
