@Doublethree100 Just so you know, your IRL name becomes highlighted in Google docs as you edit. Don't know if you care about this, but would advise using something like a saved file on your desktop to make updates, and copy/paste the edited version if you see it as an issue. I have no use for names, but became aware of this just moments ago when I read the list and saw you editing the Dragonball section of the list. Online identity does matter to some people though.

RE: Funimation and Crunchyroll Shared Anime
RE: Best Openings in Anime Tournament: Round 1 Match 50 Inuyasha VS Ergo Proxy
Neither of these would actually make it onto my playlist. I don't like the animation for Ergo Proxy as much either. If not for one detail, Grip would've gotten my vote, but they made the same irritating mistake with all the Inuyasha openings. Under no circumstances should background noise (swords clashing or water splashing) ever be put in the OP to interfere with the music!
RE: Best Openings in Anime Tournament: Round 1 Match 53: Working! VS Seraph of the End
Someone Else- 8
Just finished watching Wagnaria a couple days ago, and have to say it's not my favorite song from the series. However, the animation sequence manages to define the personalities of every main character in less than a minute and a half. It's a catchy song, and the lyrics work for the show, but not a great song.
With regards to Seraph, the only thing which really ever caught my attention with this OP was the dancing. I'm not sure why, but something about that animation seems different to the rest. Don't really care for the song though.

Saturday Morning Question- 5
You Raise me Up- 7
You Raise me Up is definitely an amazing song, and I'd never heard it before which I think added to the value. The vocal style is something you don't normally hear in Japanese music.
However, having said that, anyone that has paid much attention to my posts this past few months should easily know which song I couldn't help but sing along to. I won't call it an easy decision, but something about this song completely changes my mood.
RE: Best Openings in Anime Tournament: Round 1 Match 55: Barkamon VS My Hero Academia
Sora ni Utaeba- 6
Like both songs equally, but the animation has to be the deciding factor in this one. Even then, I think it's only because I'm familiar with MHA though. For some reason, Barakamon stayed on my "I'll watch it later" list for years, and just never made it to it. Familiarity with the characters and story, I think, are what gave it the emotional edge.
RE: "Content unavailable in your country" message on forum
Went through the better part of two days this week not being able to access the forum because of this issue. I'm not sure how it behaves for other users, but when it happens, no amount of tinkering, refreshing, or going to the previous page helps. When I try to go back, it simply gives the same message on any links I click. Likewise, if I refresh after going back a page, it simply loads the "content unavailable" page.
I initially thought that the issue could be because of the settings on my other laptop being set to Japanese locale and primary language. However, I bought another laptop about a month ago and have everything set to United States and English. With the exception of having IME for my projects, and the projects themselves, there's nothing which would indicate any location other than America. Haven't even switched any of my games or music from Japan over yet (project for tonight).
I have no idea what is causing it, but it definitely gets annoying when unable to get access for such a long period of time.

Haven't watched the series, and it may line-up perfectly (but I don't know), but the 1980's detective series music just doesn't do it for me.

Enjoyed watching Magus Bride, but it's one of the very few shows I've watched which I literally wrote down how long the songs were just so I could remember how far ahead I needed to skip. I normally, unless I can't stand them, watch the OP/ED of everything just for the sake of the music. Couldn't do that with either the first or second half of this series.

RE: Worst Anime You've Ever Watched!!
@darkmatterkakine I actually like the series for the exact reasons that you say you don't. However, I've also read the light novels, and can see the differences. In the original work, he's using his fiances in a similar fashion to assigning assault squads by the time he has seven of them.
If I had to make an actual complaint to the series, it would be that three of his fiances are 100% underage lolitas. He struggles with the idea of being engaged to the first "lolita bride", but after that it seems that he's ok with the idea of being engaged to characters that are going to have to wait MULTIPLE years before they can get married. Even then, it wasn't the "lolita factor" he struggled with coming to terms with. He accepted that part pretty quickly compared to coming to the realization that the legal marriage age was different. Even with a three year difference in the age before getting married providing A LOT of slack, he still has to wait years before marrying them.
I like the OP genre (the stronger the better as long as there is something of a challenge) of isekai, but don't think there should have been any realistic reason that a character (especially one that's supposed to be so noble and generous) should have been able to bring himself to accept such a thing regardless of cultural acceptance in a different world. When in Rome, there should still be aspects of yourself which you can't bring yourself to change regardless of what the Romans are doing.
