Some of you might wonder if the huge wall text has suddenly disappeared. Fear not, I was getting kind sick and tired of it so I want to make an even bigger one!

My status and social life changed drastically since I've joined this site. Currently I am a student at International Relations and European Studies. I love world history, foreign languages, geography, literature, philosophy, economics, politics, diplomacy and security studies. No, I don't love maths, I am still a sane person after all. Well my hobbies: watching anime, reading manga (ofc), rock and metal music (can't live without it), football, basketball, ranting, etc.

Your biggest metalhead is here with new tastes, new fucking great metal bands to share with you mates (or at least with whoever is interested), here are some of the bands I am currently listening (if the list is too long, don't blame me, blame the bands for being too good to attract my ears, you have been warned):

Thank you for offering me help =D

You are the first that I encounter who believes that Anette suits Nightwish more than Tarja =O

I still recommend Sharon Den Adel in her absolutely fantastic Black Symphony performance.. You watch that and let me know please =D 

I knew about Myrath and Orphaned Land and I am actually ridiculously excited that Myrath turned out to be known and loved in Europe ! All love from Tunisia =D

I stambled upon your profile while looking for Witch Hunter Robin reviews. I am impressed with the long playlist you have up there. I scrolled down to see if Within Temptation is included since it is my fav and YES it is ! Sharon Den Adel , is not on your top 25 favorite female vocalists and Annete Olzon is ?? Man.. u_u

Apocalyptica, After Forever, Blind Guardian , Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, , Tristania , Type O Negative, Nightwish, Nox Arcana, ow HOLD ON A SECOND!! How come you know MYRATH ? *__*

I did not think it is known outside our country..Well unless you are Tunisian like myself, I find it really stunningly awesome !

Tell me please, have you been enlightened about Visual Kei?? Your playlist is so cool that it should also include X-Japan, Phantasmagoria, Malice Mizer, Dir En Grey, Megalomania ,Versailles, Manterou Opera..ect...

Consider it as a music recommendation =D

By the way , I am new here and it has been a pleasure being introduced to your likes and reviews !

"Culmea este ca ceea ce le-a lipsit la seriile mentionate de tine, si de mine mai sus, e chiar povestea, asa ca daca tu consideri ca ele sunt peste Nana din punct de vedere al povestii... no comment."

Pai exact asta am zis si eu dar cred ca trebuia sa pun fraza intr-o alta ordine. Si nu am zis de Nana ca e superficial. 

Am vazut lista cu noul sezon anime. Am gasit 20 de animeuri interesante la care o sa ma uit. Pur si simplu m-am uitat la imaginea postata la fiecare anime. Nu am citit despre ce e vorba. Pur si simplu imaginea ma facut sa ma hotarasc la ce ma uit. Asa sunt eu in materie de anime. Extrem de superficial. In mod sigur, pana se termina sezonul ca sa pot incepe sa il vad, aflu detalii despre fiecare in parte. Dar pana acum, metoda mea nu prea a dat gres.

Eu nu vreau ca americanii sa se bage in industria anime. Am vrut sa zic ca Americanii si Europenii se uita in principal la animeuri cu story puternic, sau in orice caz, asa cum iti plac tie. Asta vor. Dar in Japonia, e putin diferit. Daca ar asculta producatorii Japonezi de ce ar vrea sa vada restul lumii, ai avea animeuri extraordinare dupa gustul tau. Dar nu fac asta. Repet, americanii si europenii nu exista pentru Japonezi. Cred ca ultimul sondaj arata ca 90% din japonezi nu vor straini in tara. Asta spune multe. Deci o sa vezi in general animeurile de duzina, la care ma uit eu, impreuna cu majoritatea japoneza.

Si cum nici eu nu apreciez ce vezi tu, nici tu nu apreciezi ce vad eu. Sa vazut in posturile uriase pe care le scriem :)

Nu ca eu nu as aprecia o poveste bine facuta in animeuri. Dimpotriva. Dar in general, nu gasesc ceea ce caut. Nu ma uit la animeuri cara contin prea multa violenta. Ia uitate pe lista ta de animerui care ti-au placut si nu contin violenta... nu prea gasesti. Ce am cu violenta? Am un dezgust fata de ele de cand am incercat sa vad Elfen Lied (e printre favoritele tale). Nu apare pe lista mea de vazut sau dropped, pentru ca am sters absolut tot ce era legat de acest anime din minte.

In alta ordine de idei, nu cred ca ai facut cunostinta cu john. Daca gasesti ceva interesant in articolele lui sa iti dai cu parerea si pe la mine:
