Shootin' the Breeze / Re: What brand of pet food do you use?
« on: January 23, 2019, 11:06:16 PM »
Been working with a lady for the last 4 years once a month. She sells raw meat, since she believes is better for dogs and cats. Mostly is ground meat of beef, chicken, Turkey, and lamb. Also, some tripe, enzymes and fish.
Interesting! To my knowledge, this kind of food is called BARF in the market. Raw meat can be good for animals but I heard it's very hard to formulate a proper nutritional balance with it.

I know on average, costumers spend $200 a month to feed their pets.
In my own experience, it's not that surprising. :zodd: But the prices of pet food are a rip off, considering the quality and the ingredients. :puck:
I've thought about getting into the pet food/accessory business before actually. I have many ideas...

Well that's a brand we don't have here, it has a cool name. We have Purina though. What about the prices? Is Taste of the Wild an expensive one? Is it more expensive than Purina? I kinda want to know the differences in prices of pet food in your part of the world.
Taste of the Wild (TOW) is available here in Europe. I think it's more expensive than Purina products except Purina Pro Plan.
Supposing we have five pricing levels (1:vey high, 2: high, 3: middle, 4: low, 5: very low), TOW belongs to 3.
But this rating is based on the European market.

My dog eats Royal Canin, the German Shepherd Adult type (because she is one). She used to eat another brand when she was younger but I can't remember the name.

I'm from Argentina, and we have the same brands you mentioned, and many more I'm sure. These brands are from USA, right? Are these brands in most countries around the world? Now I wonder if there is a brand of pet food here that only exists here. I never questioned myself this, this is new.

Royal Canin is French but owned by Mars Inc. (US company). Mars also owns Sheba and Whiskas. Hill's is American (and owned by Colgate), Orijen is Canadian, Purina is a US company but is the property of Nestlé (Swiss group). Like for humans food, most pet food brands are owned by a few giant companies. But I've heard that most wet food is produced in Thailand by subcontractors.

I don't know much about dogs. I especially wonder how many kibbles they consume for a month. My cat consumes around 1,3 kg per month.

I have a cat who is very elegant and smart. :guts: He's been eating Royal Canin kibbles since he was young. I've tried other brands but they were all refused.
When I ask people around me, the most popular pet food brand seems to be Purina. That has made me curious to know what brands are popular around the world.

Miura's comment:
As for my figure shelf*, it was filled with S.I.C. Shôwa Rider in the blink of an eye. Finished with a Hot Toys Hulkbuster. \(^o^)/

*It usually refers to two or more shelves on the wall in Japanese.

In my opinion, it's not good to show interest for this novel, unless you want to see it happen again.
It's already selling pretty well. Japanese readers seem to be moderately satisfied with it in general, and many are expecting that more are to come, unfortunately...
Asian people are familiar with this kind of merchandising when movies, manga and the like are successful.

I have the book of course but I decided not to read it. I just checked the end out of curiosity.

Anime Asylum / Re: 2016 Berserk TV series: Episode 1
« on: July 01, 2016, 09:15:54 PM »
Watching the episode, my first impression was that they made the same mistake as the movies: misinterpreting Guts!
I feel like they're depicting Kenshiro (from Hokuto no Ken) instead of Guts. In Japanese, there's a word pronounced "fukashi". It's typically used for a man who does everything in an overly dramatic fashion, which is not how Guts is at all.
Getting the details wrong, using crappy CG... these don't matter much when our main hero is fucked to begin with. :rickert:

The gag with the Tapasa made my day! How could we have ever expected them to be so funny?
The scene with the two of them crouching in the stable is my favorite in this episode.
Maybe Daiba will get to talk to them in the next episode?
I can't still believe we'll have new episodes every month!  :guts:

Great post! It's a fresh approach to Berserk. As a woman, I can only tell roses, lilies, tulips, carnations....  :farnese:
I appreciate your insight.

Saturday night we went to a restaurant and while walking to the table we were assigned, I didn't realize the floor was wet, slipped and my brow hit a bar stool and was knocked out for a few seconds.

I had a similar experience long ago, slipped on a wet floor and got hurt pretty bad. I hope you get better soon!
I do appreciate your Guts-like spirit. :guts:
10 grams of Elf Powder have been prescribed for you! :puck:

Character Cove / Re: Berserk Dads
« on: July 08, 2015, 01:49:20 PM »
Here's my addition: Ganishka's father. He showed up just a few times but it was enough to see his fear about his son. I think he knew Ganishka would harm him eventually. At that time, everybody could be a threat to kings.

Anyway, there aren't many good dads in Berserk. Godot is the best, and Foss is also a good father. The count and the viscount were evil but nice with their child at the same time. Gambino and Guts' relationship is the one that's always bothered me. But I decided to think Guts might not have been able to meet the Band of the Falcon if he had stayed with Gambino. Ironically, Gambino's harshness made Guts stronger, I guess.

Miura's comment is as follows:

At the time of the cradle of the second ancient civilization, warriors of the tribe who believe in "V8" have "steering wheels", ride on "vehicles" and fight over "gas (high-octane)"... This is a "neo-ancient vehicle civilization".
If humankind doesn't fall, it will be talked about in the future.
By pondering on the near future after the collapse of civilization, the dawn of a new civilization is pictured.

Character Cove / Re: Berserk Moms
« on: May 10, 2015, 04:51:42 PM »
This is a really good approach to Berserk. :ubik:
I often think about "Berserk Dads". I think it can be a good counterpart to this thread, and there is a lot to discuss.
I want to add Ganishka's mother to the list, who tried to kill him to put his brother on the throne.
To me Farnese' mother was interesting. Yeah, she's definitely a neglectful mother but she knows her daughter better than anybody else.
I think many noble ladies were like her historically.
Personally I wonder how Schierke would be if she became a mother. Would she raise her child as a witch or wizard? :ganishka:

Character Cove / Casca's love for Guts
« on: April 16, 2015, 02:53:08 PM »
There are several scenes where Casca shows her love for Guts. I think she's quite daring about it. Even more direct than Guts. But in the manga the two never say "I love you" : I think it's the Japanese way.
In what scene do you feel Casca's love for Guts the most?
For me, it's when she told Guts to leave after she decided to stay to take care of Griffith.
She wanted to leave with Guts but couldn't abandon Griffith to his fate. But while she was willing to sacrifice her life, she didn't want Guts to sacrifice his, even though she'd clearly be miserable.

Character Cove / Re: Chich and the language of flowers
« on: April 13, 2015, 11:29:06 AM »
Oh, it's a really interesting find. I think Miura took the flower language into account.
I also wanted very much to believe Chich survived in whatever form. But sadly, she's dead. Life is harsh. :rickert: She just had this desperate desire to be with her comrades, and it foresaw what would happen to Guts soon afterward.

« on: February 17, 2015, 07:23:19 PM »
Could I ask you to explain what you mean by this? Why is Casca not ideal because she is "too devoted" and why is that a negative trait? I am not saying that being devoted is bad but based on what you have said here you seem to be implying that it is not good. Like it would appeal to men but not women.

I think my post is self-explanatory. As a role model for women, or someone the female reader can identify with, she could be seen as lacking independence/ambition for herself.

I enjoyed you ladies' talk. And it was nice to hear a new voice (O-blessed-king-of-longing's) too.

I'd like to propose you to focus on the characters' mentality. This is one of women's specialty, isn't it?
I mean pychologically and from a woman's perspective. For example, Casca is considered to be a perfect woman to men. But for women, she might not be as ideal because she's just so devoted. Rather, an independent woman like Luca might be more appreciated. These kinds of things.

For me, the best woman in Berserk is Schierke. If she were 10 years older, I think she'd be a good alternate choice for Guts. :schierke:
