こんにちは

 

So... you've stumbled over my profile, fancy that!
Good thing I prepared a quick "description of myself" for y'all then (kinda).

 

My name is not important nor is your will to click that Follow button.
But if you do click it please do it because you want to get to know me and not so you can brag about how many you follow, thanks!


Don't know how it is today, but back in the day television was the main factor for one's interest.
Well, at least for us youngsters who wanted to explore the fictional world, most of us.
For me it certainly was, and when I discovered Anime...the journey began!
You might be wondering what kind of anime I watched, so without further ado...


I've grown up with such shows as Basilisk, Berserk, Bleach, Digimon, Dragon Ball, Elfen Lied, Full Metal Panic!, Ghost In The Shell, Hellsing, Hunter X Hunter, InuYasha, Naruto, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ninja Scroll, One Piece, Pokémon, Rurouni Kenshin, Sailor Moon, Vampire Princess Miyu, Yu-Gi-Oh! and of course the Ghibli movies.
Even though I only saw a few episodes of each, it still acted as a nice gateway for me to the world of Anime and Manga.
And today, well...let's just say the guy discovered a new hobby after watching all of these shows and movies ^^


 

Well... I suppose that's it, you know what to do if you feel the need to get to know me!
Otherwise I wish you a safe trip to wherever you're going next on Anime-Planet!

 

さようなら

LonesomeRider says... Such a hard task, hurr durr... where to find the time?  Oh well, suppose I have to work on it slowly over time.

Truly the best approach overall.  Time is such a precious commodity - I never have enough time. No matter what it is I want to do, I find that the time allotted for that activity, no matter how much is given, is never enough.  There is some elastic property intrinsic in time so that the time needed for any given project is always smaller than the time spent doing said project.  These days, it almost seems like a mantra with me: So much anime to watch, so little time.

You've lots of guitar. I love guitar. Wish I could hear you play.

Re: Inuyasha - I'm doing a rewatch of that now. It's been years since I've actually watched it, but I used to love it so and thought the main premise and storylines so intriguing and well-thought out.  But then...  the show devolved into each episode being nothing more than defeat the shard demon of the day. And every fight with Naraku had him just disappear away unscathed. Never any truly near captures, no prolonged real true honest to goodness fighting. Battles with him were pointless.  He went from being one of the most scheming, conniving, truly-evil Machiavellian villains to ... a boring, predicatable, untouchable object of group hatred. And don't EVEN get me started on Kagome.  OMG, I hate her so much.  Sure, she's only 15 and so some immaturity is to be expected, but NO fifteen year old I know is as irresponsible and petty as she is.  Any time at all the show gives her a little growth and development, it snatches it away just a few seconds later.  Kagome is irritated: Sit boy.  Inuyasha doesn't do as she commands? Sit boy.  Kagome doesn't know what to do? Sit boy.  She is bored: Sit boy.  She lords the power of the beads of subjugation over Inuyasha like some petty tyrant. Never any discussion about why she slams his face and body into the dirt.  She just felt like it, so it's ok.

And then that ending.  THAT was an ending????? WTF!  Nothing, absolutely nothing, was resolved.  I hear The Final Act wraps up all the loose ends conclusively, so I'm rewatching the show to have it fresh in my mind for when I watch TFA, but truly ... making fans wait literally YEARS before releasing this?  What is up with that? 

Good luck watching Fullmetal Alchemist. It isn't the site's #1 anime for nothing, it really is a good show, and one of my favorites, and not just because of nostalgic familiiarity like Inuyasha, though it was one of the first shows I'd seen.  Watch them both, please. Although I agree that FMAB is actually better, the original FMA -did- follow the manga in the beginning and the setup and character introduction is done best there in the original anime.  Only when the anime started deviating from the manga and developing its own storyline (one sadly full of contradictions and unanswered plot holes) did it become something less.  That's the reason there was the outcry and then development of FMAB, which gets the story right, but which kind of skims through the beginning a bit because it was already done and done well in the original FMA tale.

To get the full FMA experience, see them both!  You just won't "feel" the Elric brothers and the story won't sink in as much without the depth one gets from being introduced via the first show.  That's why I always advocate seeing them both and not just skipping FMA and watching only FMAB.

Although, I rated these shows when I first joined Anime-Planet and I had yet to develop my current rating system that I use now to ensure consistency in my ratings, and I suspect that maybe, just maybe, when I do a rewatch of the two shows (and I -do- have this planned!) that I may end up giving FMAB my very first 5-star anime rating.  My current rating for both shows is 4.5 stars, and that's the highest rating I've ever given any anime to date.

LonesomeRider says... Sorry about that!  The original plan was to do something cool with my profile, but now (for many reasons) I went with something simple, oh well... at least it's done ^^   It's not the shiniest of things, but hopefully it gets the job done

I find that putting pressure on oneself to post something cool or something special invariably leads to that post taking too long to get posted. At least that's how it works for me!  Better to put up something "serviceable" and twak it later.  Ofc, then you risk getting stuck with something merely serviceable, like MY profile page. Ah well...   *grin*

Your new bio/profile more than gets the job done - I like it! So, you tell some things and keep our appetites whetted for more by obscuring other things. *smile* You are from Norway, and are a "multi-instrumentalist"  I'm intrigued! What instruments?

I also see you have listed as one of your favorites Inuyasha, which is the anime that got me hooked... but you don't have the site's most popular anime even listed as Watched yet. It's also a personal favorite of mine.  Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood One of my favorite viewing experiences. They were creating the first series, FMA, while the manga was still being written so while the first part of the series is very similar to the manga, the middle and ending are quite different.  Second series, Brotherhood, was created after the manga series was completed and follows the manga storyline much more closely. However, a lot of the first part of the story was more thoroughly covered in the first series. I recommend seeing them both, in chronological order.

Hello!!  Hope you are having fun here.  ^_^ Saw your post in the forums, so I thought I'd come over and check out your profile page.  Apparently, though, I've caught you in between profile updates, so I can't find out more about you yet!

Hello! Just leaving comments for folks who used to have twitter accounts linked to let you know about the new/much better version of the feature: http://www.anime-planet.com/forum/showthread.php?t=197818

We had to remove all previous twitter setups to activate the feature, so you may have noticed a 'lost twitter badge'. To re-set it up, just go to 'edit profile' and use the new 'sign in with twitter' button. Once you do, you can also opt-in (it's opt-out by default!) to automatically tweet when you do stuff on the site, like mark anime or add recommendations. If you just 'sign in' without opting in to any settings, it'll be just like before, and your feed will once again show on your profile homepage :)
