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)

Happy Halloween to you as well!

It's good to hear that ya enjoyed 521 =) And Kino's Journey at the very least, probably won't disappoint or garner a low score.

Finally, I'm unemployed indefinitely, so I'm learning Japanese the AJATT way while I have the time (and then I'll continue the AJATT way, just I'll be limited). I think it's interesting as long as you make it interesting (like AJATT suggests). No one wants to learn a boring way and they end up learning slower and less that way. I found physics enjoyable in high school, so of course I got the highest grades. But I thought English courses were redundant, so I typically didn't do as hot in those.

Anyway, whatever you do, have fun =D

One more thing..

Check out "Kino no Tabi"/"Kino's Journey" if ya get the chance. Preferably check out the Japanese dub, as the English one is pretty shoddy in this instance. I can't be certain, but based on your good reviews of certain anime, I figure you'd probably like it. Not to mention that it's critically reviewed as around 8.8-9.5 by the staff here. And most others give it an 8-10.

Great Reviews!

Ah, I see (about what you thought of Eden of the East). I would say it's deserving of a second watch and to especially follow up with the movies, but that's clearly just an opinion.Man, if you've seen OP 521 yet, it's so epic. Waiting for Yonkou's a good idea, too, but I figured ~360-480p was good enough on onepieceofficial (luckily without commercials, too). I can't remember from our cbox conversations, but do you know any Japanese? I've started an immersion tactic that I got from AJATT (All Japanese All the Time) and so far it's probably helping. Everything from my OS, to my music, to my news-sources are all Japanese. The one area where I keep it English is keeping in touch with friends on Yonkou, Facebook, here, etc. Then I watch OP with subtitles just to get full enjoyment (although I have to watch everything else without them).Anyway, hit me up sometime again, if ya want, and just have fun no matter what ya do =)

Yeah I was also a litte bit disappointed by the previous arc, but that episode made all the waiting for a good episode worthwile. I totally don´t like franky's getup. Also Im very happy the mugiwara crew is back together.

Actually, I've been scared to watch it based on things I've read about it. I'm worried it will ruin my appreciation for the series. At some point in time, maybe I'll man up and watch it, and if it's good, then hurray. Otherwise, I'll just pretend it doesn't exist like the second season of Gunslinger Girl. :p
