about me

I live in the (currently) snow shrouded land of Michigan. If only snow was as inspiring and romantic as Norman Rockwell would have us believe.

I love anime, which should go without saying here! I'm also huge into RPG's, if you couldn't tell from my avatar (a screenshot of my character from Final Fantasy 11 Online). I play as Chocobits on the Queztalcoatl server if you ever wanna drop me a tell.

IRL I do IT work. I don't have a degree yet, but it's a goal as soon as I get my finances situated. I recently got my CompTIA A+ certification and I'm studying for/working toward more certs.

I'm also studying Japanese but I rarely have the time or gumption to make any serious progress. Most of the JP I know is just common (and melodramatic!) phrases used in anime that have been pounded into my head after hundreds of views (Yurusenai!!!!!!!!!!!).

I don't really have a favorite anime genre. The ones I've seen the most of and would like to see more of are mostly ecchi/panty-shot/harem. It's all the better if those have a shounen or magical girl type plot. I'm not in it so much for the fan service; I just love the character interactions and the painfully obvious plot devices and awkward build-up to the impossibly compromising situations that these shows offer. If only people walked in on each other more often in real life. The world would be a more peaceful (and embarassing) place!

Better late than never, hmm?

To answer your question about why I decide not to watch so much, I have to go with All of the Above. Yes, there are studios I don't like (Gainax), Yes, there are genres I really don't like (Sports, Yaoi, Shoujo-ai, ecchi is a strong dislike but can be tolerated if everything else makes up for it), and Yes, there are adaptations I don't like too. There's also franchises in general that I don't like, such as Bleach.

Only two things get an immediate Won't Watch; a genre I really don't like or being produced before I was born. In the case of genres, I have to hear really good things from a trustable source to even consider giving it a chance. If it was made before I was born, I'll probably never consider watching it. Period.

On the topic of franchises, I try to be fair and give it a chance to impress me. Bleach failed horribly at this, like Naruto did. So now I avoid the franchise. Any Bleach-related thing I see gets an automatic Do Not Want. Sure, it may have gotten better since I loathed it, but I like to see the whole picture or none at all. I don't skip in books to the good parts; I like to read the entire story. Same goes for anime; I will either watch it through to the end or drop it and never touch it again. If I can't get through the beginning, nuts to the end.

But some I just refuse to watch from the start, because I'm pretty sure I won't be interested enough to watch to the end. I'm looking at you, Gundam.

And now that I've remembered that I have this account, that list is probably going to start growing again at a rapid rate.

''Women are exempt from this judgment because this show really is a shoujo trying to disguise itself as a shounen.'' ... What? Erm, could you please elaborate on this? I really want to know how you came to that conclusion.
