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)

Figured I'd drop off a comment while I'm here.

Always nice to meet someone who agrees with you. It looks like you've seen a lot of the kind of shows I like, so if you ever feel like talking about one of 'em, hit me up. Nothing wrong can come of discussion between Higurashi fans. :p

Or if you'd rather talk about, like, physics, that can also be arranged, haha.

Nice to meet you either way~

Dennou coil's strong point was its setting. And let me tell you, I dont think anyone who saw the show wouldv'e hated the setting. I'm just not that much of a setting kind of guy.

I just recently started going over the first episodes of the new season in a new blog post, checkk it out if you feel like it. And if you do start mitsudomoe, skip the first three episodes, it takes them a while to get their bearings, so it starts out with some mainly gross out humor stuff. After that it becomes the best double entendre show ever. If you're into that.

Haha, yeah, I get what you mean. In my case the OP manga has moved me quite deeply in lots of occasions, but I've always thought that an anime plays with advantage against its manga since movement, color and most especially the music and voice acting play an incredibly important role at enhancing a scene's drama/thrill/emotion. If only the anime is done well, the experience far surpasses the manga. But I guess that's the difficult issue about it: doing things right with the anime - and Toei isn't pulling that off as of late.

Anyways, I absolutely understand what you're saying about not wanting to spoil the moments. Let's just hope Toei will live up to our expectations - or at least a part of them.
