I'm just your average opinionated otaku is all.

Feel free to contact me anytime about anything. If you want to discuss an anime, or a manga or something entirely unrelated, just go for it.

I consider 2.5 stars to be average, and I don't rate things I haven't finished. While my standards are always shifting and developing, my manga ratings are particularly provisional until I have a firmer grasp of what a 10 out of 10 manga is to me.

Neither my school library, nor my local library had "Cat's Cradle" so I purchased the digital version. Seems like I'll have to push anime away for a few days and prepare tea and cookies. I will surely have a look on Vonnegut's other books and try to hunt down these short stories you've mentioned.

My favourite philosophers would have to be Epicurus, Socrates, David Hume, Rene Descartes and Friedrich Nietzsche. They caused me to have many restless nights. It was only weeks ago that I read Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" and Miyamoto Mushahi's "The Book of Five Rings". What splendid minds these men wielded! I once came across a fascinating book about the non-existence of the self (better than Hume's who also that such a view). However, I strongly doubt the book was published outside of country of my origin.

Ah, I see. It took me almost two years to watch HOTD. I am ashamed of that fact... It is not due to the time it took, rather the fact I watched such an awful title. A shop nearby is shutting down and all of their DVDs are on sale... Seems like I will too be watching 50 anime at once.

I've heard of some works by Vonnegut regarding religion. Do you know their titles? I'd like to have a read. My bookshelfs are becoming dominated by fantasy and sci-fi, just months ago they were purely philosophical!

Wow, you're watching so many titles at the moment. Currently I'm watching five and I find it  to be too much!

Hi, by your name I assume you're an Isaac Asmimov fan too! I always feel heart-broken upon mentioning his name in a conversation, I hear "who's that?". I compared our anime ratings, in most cases they're the same!

Listing is all right, but the recommendation database was a huge boon to me when I was first getting into anime. Even now, I keep stumbling on weird artsy stuff that I probablt wouldn't have found otherwise.

Heh, I watched Eiken with a group of friends. It was a good laugh, so I cut it a bit more slack than usual. Just a bit.

Let's see, for manga A Drunken Dream is one of my favorite books on my shelf, but I'm a huge sucker for old shoujo in general and Moto Hagio in particular. Twin Spica is also fabulous- it made me cry in a public library, if you're into that sort of thing. However, it just went out of print in English, and I'm not sure how easy it is to find online. Yotsuba's a safe bet, too. Everyone loves Yotsuba.
