Hello, I'm the type that loves conversations, so leave a comment if you like!I take a few days to reply though :P  I'm a college student who lives in Austin, Texas and am originally from Scotland. I enjoy distance running, indie/alternative music, drawing, basketball and the NBA (my team is the Golden State Warriors) as well as talking with all sorts of people. I like all sorts of different anime, so let me know any recommendations you might have. I have smash brothers for the 3ds, and have been into the series since melee, so hmu for a match!

One of my favourite things about anime is the fact that 90% of the time I don't have high expectations, so I typically am surprised by how good most shows are. I'm also the sort who sees the positives in something, and give the benefit of the doubt. I may not enjoy everything, but if someone else found likeable aspects of a show, then I may take a second look. I believe talking about what you liked and enjoyed is better than talking about what you didn't, and is better for the human experience.

I see a lot of reviewers out there talking about how much they hate certain shows, characters, aspects, etc. Then they proceed to talk about why you shouldn't enjoy said series. The way I see it, if someone really liked/got a lot out of a certain series, then who are others to tell them they're wrong for doing so?

There's a lot of stuff on here, hope it doesn't slow your internet down!

Series will stay on this list until I've written a review on them, something I'm trying to make a habit out of now.

My ratings and my reviews of series may differ at times, this is because my ratings reflect how much I enjoyed a series, whereas my reviews will be more of a critical analysis of the aspects of said series

School Days is horrible, I mean there were some parts I liked and some aspects of the characters that I liked but I don't really think the show was all that enjoyable because all the characters were PSYCHO!!! I see that Kotonoha Katsura is in your favourites list which confuses me but I guess the show must have appealed to someone... unless you just like her. She's sweet at the start but then... well you know.

It was kinda shocking though I had never heard about the show before watching it so when the guy started cheating and the girls started killing... that was a HUGE shock!!

Yeah the manga version is probably prefered as it is the source material for one. But also without being too spoilerly the ending isn't very clear at the end and didn't feel satsifying. Even if I don't understand an ending if it is satsfying as a conclusion to a series then I'm fine with it. Brynhildr will be awesome. It has a great cast of characters that you get to know. But also a lot of tragedy :'(

Absolute yes! It is interesting how Ginoza became an enforcer and has come to accept his postion. A few of my predictions are that someone like Makishima will show up who can control their crime coefficient. And yes it seems likely that Kougami will appear again. Probably as an outlaw, but he'll help Akane's group with the trouble that will happen somehow, it seems likely.

I'm pretty excited about the Clannad vn getting an official localization released on steam. To expand my vn collection, and also to see how the other routes play out with the other characters.

Cool, sounds like a lot of stuff going on. I've pretty much been working, going to college, and gaming in the meantime.

Haha WHAT?! Shingeki is attack on titan lol. But yeah all of those are good if you like that genre haha 

Nice! There aren't really big spoilers, it's just small feeling spoilers, I also said that if you don't want to read it you shouldn't probably read any review haha

Yeah Okabe's the best haha and yeah, osts, not necessarily download them but yeah:P Some of them are really good. 

And dang it I fell asleep again! Haha sorry for the super late response.

“I find Symbolism very intriguing as well, often moreso when I'm aware of it, but can't quite pinpoint what is being symbolised haha”

:))) symbols are really neat, because they can mean many things at once, and it merely depends on the perspective what they do symbolize:)) it also is cool as symbols can be exchanged between individuals so that a specific (sort of “own”) language is produced, and those beings can understand each other by different means than those language is usually entitled to (in forms, and meanings of forms, that is). overall, creativity is good, makes the world so much more  interesting and fascinating : ] (*oh, and anime is one such symbolic language as well ^^ i make a note on that now, as i've already discussed the people who're against anime below :))

“Going to start Tokyo Ghoul this weekend!”

:)) i’m glad. i’ve gotta get onto it again too, as i haven’t seen any episodes since those first impressions i obtained back then. but i’m not in a hurry anyways, i tend to need more time for assimilating (and also doing) certain things so that some stuff are regularly being postponed in my day-to-day life, and that’s how it works for me anyways :]

gotta tell you, i got a bit scarred just now as i was trespassing those holy grounds of a general formu on hentai productions (out of general curiosity as to why there is no hentai on this site here, and what are the extents of hentai anyway.. well, gotta tell you, i obviously wasn’t quite cut out for what i came upon yet, so now i’m a bit distressed haha certainly it should’ve been so because i jumped to the topic which seemed most amusing to me, and it was named “Hentai that's traumatized you” hahah no surprise of my current emotional state, eh? :)) but overall it broadened my perspectives, i must say. and, boy, are there things i still haven’t experienced in life (and anime/manga)... i’m still not quite cut out for those stuff yet, i guess. my interests remained merely scientific ones, even after my acquaintance with the subject of this specific type of hentai productions. :))

“nerawareta gakuen”

oh, hope you enjoy it ^^ i happened to watch it again a few nights ago, and it was funny enough, but the mood was not set as it were the first time i’d seen it, so i couldn’t experience a tickling romantic excitement, and so instead i resorted to good old robots-oriented eve no jikan :)) it was much more suitable for the mood back then, i should tell ya. i also started out the place promised in our early days once more that same night, to lighten up my spirit (and it kind of worked - i got to turn it off half an hour into the film, and go to sleep, at around 4 a.m. or something. those times of anxiety are just upon me, i guess :)). it was really pleasing to me when i first saw it, and it’s a bit more boyish-romantic-like, not all so girly, so yeah, if it ever interests you, those graphics of it are cool, and i especially loved the ending (the show itself is quite intense for the most part, though, a bit dramatic, but so are all comix wave movies, as far as i'm aware :))

“Barakamon sounds like the type of series we could all do with watching between a few dramas, something to ease our muscles a bit then”

oh yeah, it sure is like that - light-hearted as they come :) i generally was entirely into that specific type of anime in the beginning, but then i steadily grew out of my shell. (after my hentai-forum experience, i am planning on reverting to those for the day, though, some ghibli-style things i found and am currently downloading, as to ease my mind a bit, to put it at rest, ‘cause that was a bit too much for my imagination at its current state - i’m really positive and delighted in general, it feels nice, and good, so i'd prefer sticking to that mood in general :)).

“I know just how you feel about the Death Note experience! I had a lot of trouble rooting for one side. Interesting about how the show affected you once you got to that last scene, I agree it was very compelling.”

well, what did you think in the end? like, how can you describe it? for me, i had an amusing “real-life” experience that made me realize that in an imaginary situation things tend to be a bit different that in a “life-blood” one: so the story is that here we have that very obscene politician (i mean he's not the only one, but he is really damn rude, man, like a stupid asshole whom you just wanna kick in the butt, when you observe him in the parliament sessions that i'd seen myself :)), who is completely corrupt, looks like a pig, and is rude (in a way which angers (or at least disgusts) many people from the public, including me haha i guess you could already tell :))) in the parliament. i got those impressions of him last summer seeing one parliament session on tv, and then a month later huge protests against him began, and lasted for months, it was very lively on the streets, full of intellectuals, artists and people in general. but anyways, he remained in the government even after those protests. so, in a sense, i feel about him as like he’s a criminal, because he is a money-hungry son of a ****, who is acting all mighty in this game of “politics” going on on people’s tv screens and in those (currently devoid of reasonable existence) public buildings, decorated with marble and velvet.

and then in about june, or may this year while i was preparing to have lunch or something, i misheard on the news “the murder of D.P. (this politician’s name)”, and was really shocked. a chill went through my body. i mean, i don’t like the guy, obviously, but killing him to me seemed going too far, like an act of terror of a sort. so i guess then i had my insight on what difference “reality” (the physical side of it) may have. not that i still don’t find kira to be like i found him while watching the show, but i realized also that the fact that that was fictional had eased my mind to a great extent, and i don’t mind that happening, and having to experience those things on the level of imagination, and then discuss them, as they are nevertheless quite “real” experiences to the mind, and i don’t feel the need for them to be manifested in the physical for me to have to be put in the situation with the kira frustration i mentioned in my previous comment - i simply enjoy having that in a fictional, imagination-broadening anime variant. :) that’s about my personal story, it was a really intriguing experience (that with the politician), and after i’d heard he was actually not harmed (he had merely received threats for getting murdered, or something of that sort - not that this is ncie in itself, though, but it's kind of a normal thing for our politicians out here, and it didn't seem like e particularly "serious" one either), i was relieved.

“and I think it's wonderful that you can enjoy and be happy about all sorts of stuff, if many others could feel this way more often, the world might be a better place”

oh yeah, i’m hoping for that too :) and working on it, more or less ^^ so it’s all good ;)) (oh, and sorry for being all so depressing today, with those stories of mine, but... well, i got a few blows and i’m just sorting them out the usual way - blabbering about ‘em :))

“I feel like there's some people that will be stuck in their ways, and unless they are close friends, I shouldn't really try to change their opinion.”

yeah, it’s a pity when someone is just so blind to the opportunities this world provides, but truly not all are ready to be “enlightened” ;)) hahaha sorry, i finished it off jokingly (i so very much enjoy doing that most of the time :3), but i really do mean that :)) letting it pass is the wisest thing to do, as there’s nothing for you to defend out there, and enjoying it is so much better than fighting over something :)) those people are stuck in their own paths and are most likely waiting for something to quite literally “hit” them, so that they could convert to a more open-minded perspective on life, but yeah, “so are all who live to see such times” (haha, i don’t know why i’m spraying LoTR lines everywhere these days :D must be in some lotr-dimension partly at the present moment haha okay, sorry, i'll stop now :))

“I much prefer talking with someone about it all like this!”

:3 yep, me too. quite a bit. and i generally like appreciation more than “hate-speech”, although i revere criticism as well, since being critical is not "hate", but is reasoning for improvements that can be made, and expressing hopes of betterment of certain traits (of animes, let’s say). i like doing that im my anime tumblr blog, although it may seem quite cocky, but hey, that’s how i feel and i feel like expressing my viewpoints, so i don’t mind any possible opinions on what i tend to do.

i also was very repulsed by some posts i saw in the forum here, that were about voice actors who were “everywhere”, in every show, and those people who commented were of opinion those actors “sucked”, and were annoying. that’s ridiculous, and overall there is so much tension in the general world we live in that why would you want to inflict that even on anime - the land of imagination and fun. really… that’s not a thing i would advocate (not that i don’t see why those people do it (obviously out of having low self-esteem that stands in their way of fully embracing life and enjoying it to the maximum), but i still don’t find it reasonable or appealing.) so yeah, that’s what we’re here to do anyway - to enjoy ourselves and share our enjoyment with others ^^ i’m glad you think that way yourself, and it’s really pleasant conversing with you. thanks :))

“Thank you, have a wonderful week as well okay? :)”

^^ (<--- ureshii) bye-bye, and have a great time with what you do ^^
