Ah you have found the sporadic musings of my profile.

I, like many other anime watchers, was introduced to japanese anime at around the age of 7 when I discovered the series of Card Captor Sakura, Pokemon, Digimon, Yugioh and Dragon Ball Z. At the time, I thought these series to be masterpieces. Little did I know that the power and force of these series could not compare to the greatness of some of the other series I was to watch in the future. Naruto and Bleach became the series that hooked me into Anime and Japanese culture as a whole. However, I later dropped the series for better series that I deemed more my type. It was the series, Death Note, that ultimately led me to my obsession with the psychological genre. I've watched many psychological animes that explore themes of exestentialism, enlightenment ideals and neo-freudian beliefs. My favorite anime series of all time is Monster. Since that series, I've watched many other series such as Texhnolyze, Ergo Proxy and Shiki as well as many more.

I've recently started watching currently airing animes as to experience the otaku culture as it airs and be able to channel the true feelings of the anime as its creators would have wished it to be had there been no DVD or Blu-Ray version.

Psychological and philisophical themes exsist in every anime, it is simply a matter of finding the hidden symbolism that each anime contains.

A little blurb about me. I'm 17 and college bound next year. I live in NYC and love japanese culture. I'm a straight female so ecchi animes don't really appeal to me.

=)

Really? That gives me some hope for the Clannad series i was originally not looking foward to watching it at all. It was probably one of the last ones on my list. What made you enjoy it?

hey thx for the positive feed back on the TTGL "review" and the comment! Your profile says you're into pscyological stuffs... hmm try Lain (Serial Experiments Lain), or Elfin Lied. They have decent plot/story cohetion while still giving you a kind of OMG WTF just happened kind of momments. You probably wouldn't like my views on Death Note thou... I couldn't even finish it the frist attempt at it.

anyway, thanks again for your input and comments, cheers!

Yea! I started reading the monster manga and i really like it. Ergo Proxy freaked me out in a good way (the scene where he was in her mirror or whatever) xD i can't remember why i stopped i gotta get on it and yes. I love Ghost in the Shell. I haven't finished the Second season yet but the first season ends so freaking epically. XD I loooove Batou. <3 He's adorable. Hehe Not to mention i like strong female protagonists. Too many of them in animes are bitchy or whiney, i love it when theres actually a girl who can take care of themselves.

^_^ I'm really glad it helped you out. Haha i figured i would include that since i had to do quiet a big of research myself before watching it xD; Also you have a pretty great collection of watched anime. I've been meaning to finish Monster and Ergo Proxy >< i  can't remember what would have caused me to stall them.
