about me

Im a student from Finland, who really loves to occasionally delve deep into games, movies, animes and mangas. Currently, im studying information technology in Vaasa University of Applied Sciences. Expected to graduate as an engineer in around 2012 (hopefully).

My Interests:

Games: I'm very broad minded when asked about my interests. I play a lot of games - both on the PC and on my PS3. World of Warcraft is one of the key elements of my gaming persona, but as it happens I tend to get bored of it quite often and thus my gameplay is more casual than most.

My favorite game series: Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, Civilization, Gran Turismo.

My favorite games on PS3: Dark Souls, GT5, MGS4, Batman: Arkham City

Anime: Of course. Why wouldn't it be. Anime has always been very important in my life. Sometimes its my only solace in this harsh reality and sometimes it serves as a catalyst to various events in my life.

My first ever anime was Silverfang (Ginga Nagareboshi Gin). I can't remember how old I was at the time, but I remember it was dubbed in finnish (awful dubbing) and cut so it was suitable for children (all bloody scenes were removed). It left me and a lot of other people such a lasting impression that to this day, I get goosebumbs just listening its soundtrack.

The anime that officially made me an anime fan was Inuyasha. Before Inuyasha, I had watched Final Fantasy Unlimited due to the fact that I was trying to find everything Final Fantasy related. That didn't spark the anime love (even though I liked it very much at the time), but when I watched Inuyasha I was so engaged with the series that when it ended I had to find more.

AMV's: I love watching AMV's every now and then. I don't actively search for them anymore, but I do occasionally watch some. I made some AMV's during my naruto frenzy, but these days I no longer have the time for them.

Movies: I watch a lot of movies. Not so much now as I did before I started school again. Before I would buy 2-3 DVDs a week. Nowadays its more like 3-4 a month. But even though I watch less, I still love watching them and I seem to have the ability to fully immerse myself in the movie experience. Maybe that is why I like a lot of films that many people would consider horrible. My favorite genres are psychological thrillers and science fiction.

Fantasy and Rolegames: I have always been fascinated by magic, the occult and mythologies. More so, I have always loved everything related to fantasy. Be it fantasy art, books, cardgames, boardgames, what ever. And yet, I have never actually joined a roleplaying game.

Writing: I love to write. Doesn't really matter what I write, as long as I understand the subject matter and have extensive knowledge about it. I write some fantasy literature to my own amusement, hoping that someday I could get something published. The problem with my writing is that I'm never really content about my writings, but occasionally I do manage to write something that I'm happy with. Sometimes when I write, I get completely lost in the world I'm creating and that feeling alone makes me want to write again and again. The only thing that prohibits me from writing is my lazyness. I always find something else to do, such as playing games and watching anime or TV.

Other Stuff:

Zodiac Sign: Libra

Chinese Zodiac: Dog (Weirdly, my favourite character in Fruits Basket is Sohma Shigure. Go figure)

Favourite Animal: Cat or Wolf (I love cats, but I also love anything related to wolves)

Favourite Color: Blue

Favorite Music: Game/Movie/Anime Soundtracks, Alternative and/or Melodic music (Nightwish, Linkin Park, Dead by April etc)

Hello!  sothis is redesigning the anime-planet site, and plans to roll out an awesome new site design in July, we believe. The blog feature is not part of the new design, and it is going away.  More information about this here:  Announcement: the blog feature is being deprecated topic link.  (Be sure to check out the new site design when it goes live!)

The blog pages are going away, and will be gone when the site redesign goes live. Your blog here will be removed from the site.

So, if want to keep the information posted in your blog, you will need to copy this information someplace else on the site. If you have any questions how or where to do this, please feel free to get back to me, and I will try to assist.

(For instance, your blogs posting your thoughts and commentary on anime you watched can be moved to the anime's Discussion topic in the site’s Forum or to a Review of the anime on the title’s Main Details page.)

I'll be honest. At that point, I was pretty peeved at Goro as well. But maybe 5 episodes later or so, they all join the team and he helps teach them baseball, they become a great team, and they go against Kaido, the strongest school. It's worth picking up if teamwork was your main complaint.

Anyway, like I said, you've enlightened me on there being 2 more series that I should really check out. It'll be exciting to see more =)

That is a good point. You almost remind me of the character Miyazaki. One of his partners in high school at Seishuu. Goro was always happy when any of his teammates were doing their best, whether they helped him win the game or whether they were accidentally troublesome.

I think baseball itself is the issue there. Even though it is a team sport, having an amazing pitcher can be the difference between victory and defeat. You usually don't see baseball games with scores like 24-30 or anything. The fielders are pretty much just there in case the pitcher messes up. Having good sluggers doesn't do much. So I mean, Goro's not really at fault even if he does think the game relies on only him doing well.

And I dunno how far you watched, but the fielders are really important, too, in some later games because either Goro isn't pitching or Goro isn't pitching extremely well.

Maybe it's just because I was in marching band (which is kinda like a sport, especially in the physical and mental workout and the competitiveness), that I can understand that there actually is good character development in sports anime. It's not always the same as a shounen where a friend dies and it's like he was stolen from the main character, but still.

Goro may seem like an egotistical asshole, but I think that's an unfair impression of him. He's more about the spirit; that's key, it's really everything in a competitive setting. I really wish we could've had someone as strong and charismatic as him in our band so we could go to State Finals more than we did.

Hikaru no Go was really awesome, though, I'll definitely agree. I got a Go program on my computer just because it got me a bit interested.

Regardless, I'll try out those other big baseball anime and let ya know what I think.
