(IM CURRENTLY EDITING MY PAGE SO PLEASE BARE WITH ME FOR NOW)

New Profile: Well i WAS updating my profile but now the new design is here, i have to update it again xD so first, no the banner isn't staying as it is i just put it there so it's not blank, and i will fix my layout so no it's no going to look so messy :) will be a week or so though, i am busy with work atm ._.

Hiya every, welcome to my profile, im Madoka and hope you like the page :) My bio can be found at the bottom, i have done a quick move around and will be featuring anime above myself because, it's what we want to see anyway. This is a new layout im working on so sorry if it's not as bright as my old one.

Featured highlight explanasion: below you will notice a new segment to my page (or not notice it's new if your new xD) i have named Featured Highlighted series, which will feature any series (new or old, likely not airing as they should be finished) which i have watched (normally recently but others might appear) which i recommend strongly, with reasons for such. Im hoping this will bring attention to series which deserve it and encourage me to work hard with my thinking hat, this section will be updated randomly, sometimes it could be weekly, others monthly, if i don't watch anything really great it might stay the same for a month (which then i will find a older one). It will normally feature a "Featured Highlight" series and sometimes a runner up "Runner up Highlight" (not always), and sometimes a Featured movie (not always).

Featured Highlight series Rank 1 Of This Month/Week (June 19+):
Suisei no Gargantia
Rated 5 Stars
Full Trailer (see bottom for Shorter TraileR)


Suisei no Gargantia is one amazing series which has slipped through my net for so long which is a little sad to learn but may i tell you now it is one amazing series. The series focuses on mech pilot Ledo and his Mech Chamber, The series is based in the future after humanity had left earth and is on the move in space fighting an enemy called the Avalon, After a battle with them Ledo helps buy time for his squad to evacuate by buying time, he is knocked by a blastwave through space and one day awakens to earth. Earth has re-evolved and now live on the oceans, Ledo must learn to merge the new cultures and understand earthlings with the help of Chamber.


Now i wont deny im a fan of space but you might be thinking "Mechs?" well i did at first, im not a mech fan, some of you might not like space either, well don't worry this isn't about space, it's a story of someone stranded on a planet, the story has some strong feelings as we follow Ledo, Chamber and Amy (the main person who makes him welcome on earth and helps him along, a friend). The story covers some sad moments as Ledo learns of the Avalon and tries to merge with earth. It's never easy to explain what makes a series great but i assure you this one is worth the time, remember im not a Mech fan and i loved it (it's not about Mech's by the way, Chamber is mainly a translater for Ledo to understand people, he does have plot points though), It's full of great writing, well written characters, interesting plot and lots happening, the general feel the series generates is one of which i might say is quite amazing.


I don't often throw a 5 star around now days but this for sure earned it, everyone time i finished a episode i couldn't wait for the next and was real sad to see the series end.

One of the best "Person in a strange world" genres i have watched in a long time!
Deserbes Rank 1 hands down.

EDIT This SPACE!!!

Here was full of content recently, it will be again shortly, i will slowly continue to update my profile page and rebuild this Segment!

So please don't bug me about it xD

Thanks for visiting my page :)

Thankyou For Visiting

Hope you like my choice for images, there is something for everyone there ;)

Recomendations:

This is just a quick note on how i recomend stuff and how i like to be different fro others in this area. It's common for people who recommend stuff to only do it because shared genre types or minor things. so someone might say "if you like romance you will enjoy this because it's got some high school romance" or "these two are alike because both share a love story between a xxx guy and a tsundere girl", or "you will like these two because they contain gore", i don't just do this but actually explain what is alike. I never recommend by genre alone and rare link two series just because they contain a killer or gore or whatever. So if two series Genre match i wont recommend unless they are alike.

Of course rec's have to be short so i try to keep it short, "you might like xxx series because xxx and yyy share a similar plot and develop in a similar fasion, both contain a focus on mystery solving or similar comedy" is the sort of thing (in short) to expect, of course a little more detail will be present, that's just a example so i can't say much.

So just remember, i rec by how similar a series is and what aspects are alike, not that ganre the series is or if it is gorey or not. To end here, thanks for reading my page and thanks if you have made use of any of my recs :)

omg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The thing happened where everything deleted and I am so freaking mad I could throw sticks at someone because it's taken me days!!

Really hating life right now, I copied it so I thought it's be find but what was the thing I copied after that let's see;

HINAGIKU KATSURA

At least she's cute :T

You could never understand the pain I feel right now, it's like my heart just ripped in two and Hinagiku Katsura tried to fix it but she's just making it worse and I'll never be able to view her the same, and you'll never know the amazingness that my inner tsundere was today, this is such a sorry day.

I will get back to you with a reply... it's probably going to be a few more days though because I'm in utter dispair.

I feel like Yuno seeing her love with another girl *crawls under bed and cried for infinity*

I'll be back with a reply later, T^T

Ja ne, Penguin-sama

Right here's the 2nd half, sorry it took so long.

I was leaving off talking about Seinarukana I believe. Yeah, the magic system looks different, though I imagine anything that changed will be easy to adapt to as we have been trained in Aselia's system already. Pretty much every change so far looks awesome. There is something that's confused me though. I've heard people saying that Euphoria is a Law Eternal which goes against all logic and reasoning that we've experienced. I can't see how Euphoria would defect from Yuuto and Aselia to join Temorin and Takios and people like them. We'll hopefully get the full story behind it once the game has been localized. Sadly I haven't heard any further news about it.

I rewatched Psycho-Pass recently, to freshen up my understanding of it a little more. I feel great that I was able to know about more of the references to philosophers the show makes. I've thought this before but the people like Makishima who are classified as criminally asymptomatic and who run the Sibyl System are more than likely sociopaths. I forget if I said it before but I'll say it here. As the dominator is able to tell how likely the victim will commit what he thinks of as a crime. Most people when they commit a crime or tell a lie, they know deep down that what they're doing is wrong, and feel some type of guilt over it, which may be the thing that the Psycho-Pass detects. Though a sociopath is able to say a truth and lie without feeling any kind of distinction between the two. And by extention doesn't feel guilt for commiting crimes. I've tried understanding what it is the psycho pass is able to correctly analyze about a person's psychological state, though 1 out of 2,000,000 people can't have this determined. And I can't imagine it being anything other than that 1 person being a sociopath. That sounds close to the real life statistic to how many people are sociopaths.

True about RTS some Turn Based Strategies are complex enough that I automate the less relevant units to do boring mundane tasks while I focus on the major pieces like the bishop, queen, and rook. Trying to tell every worker, combat unit what to do at the same time is very complex. I remember when I was younger that RTS games were the hardest types of games to play, seeing that there's no time to think though a long term plan, and doing what works best in the short term.

Guides certainly make games easier, they are able to tell you instantly how to solve a complex puzzle of some type when you're completely stuck. Though a guide itself can't give you the skills required to beat a certain part of a game. I am guilty of using guides when there is a very complicated part of a game that I've spent hours trying to figure out and just can't get it. For most of the game a guide isn't nessacary, though there are parts where its very tough to figure out. Though even when you know what to do, it doesn't mean you'll be able to do it in certain types of games. In Bullet Hell games in particular, you can see many videos of people doing no-death runs, but it won't mean the skill can be easily replicated. 

It is good to play games like Aselia where there isn't really a guide to find in the first place. It comes with a guide to help you on choosing the routes you want and where to find the dragons and stuff, but it doesn't tell you how to beat the bosses or dragons, all of that must be figured out by the player. With most games these days there's normally a video walkthrough on youtube or a guide for it. Including you I know only 2 people who have even heard of Aselia. It may be because not many people know what visual novels are about. Though hopefully with games like Steins;Gate, a few vns that are out on steam, they'll get a little more popular. Speaking of which, it looks like Higurashi is coming onto steam, so more people will be able to read the vn that inspired the anime.

It is a bad thing that there are characters that are too forgiving. It seems like they think forgiving people who have commited terrible wrongs against them and many others makes them better people, but it feels like you're letting the bad person "win" by forgiving them and moving on. It doesn't mean that protagonists need to be jerks who are badmouths, though the antihero type of character like Light, Lelouch, Clare, and others to be more interesting because they don't just forgive people who have commited various wrongs. 

An anime/manga that does well with the "thou shall not kill" code is Rurouni Kenshin however. It was the pre-meiji era (I forget the exact name of the era), but anyhow. Kenshin killed many people as Hitokiri Battousai and it appears to be because of this that he took the vow to not kill as he didn't feel like he had the right to kill all those people. And he's extremely strong so he can defeat opponents easily with his sakabato while not killing them, but he has to be careful as the bloodlust in him can still emerge if he faces an opponent close to him in strength.

See that you're redesigning your profile, that's a good idea. Most of the stuff on my profile is from 2 years ago when I first made this account, it could use an update. When the site gets a redesign coming soon, that may be a good time to become "reborn".

With the alternate ending ovas, I just thought about Clannad's ovas, from my understanding, they took the routes for Kyou and Tomoyo and shortened them to work in ova format. The way Clannad does it seems to work for some reason now that I think about it. Though the way that you're talking about doesn't work. In the end anime is a linear journey due to the way episodes work. Visual Novels incorporate the choices which allow the multiple endings to be integrated easily. It would be cool to see an anime which gave you a choice or two like a visual novel and that would influence the rest of the journey and ending. Allowing for more reasons to rewatch a show. I wonder if it would be considered a visual novel in that case, though it would have more emphasis on the visual part in the case of anime form.

Yeah, it sucks when things are misspelled or grammar is improper, somehow it sort of breaks the immersion the visual novel has over you. In the case of a visual novel its more important to have the story be understood as the story is the primary strength of the vn with gameplay (if its in there like with Aselia/Utawarerumono) being secondary. though in the case of these companys like Mangagamer and JAST, I think I understand. It sounds like they don't have a lot of staff which makes it harder to proofread throughout 60 hours of text not even including the different routes the game can take, and choices a player makes. And its easy to make errors in programming which explains how games overall go through a massive phase of bug testing. Taking this into account and also how they're the only companies I know that can officially localize vns, I am fine with this. As long as I can understand the story and get the same joy that the people who've also playe the vn in Japan have already experienced with the visual novel.

It is another story when things are misspelled in common conversation on the internet especially in youtube comments. Somehow it always shocks me how badly people misspell things and inconsistant grammar. Its one thing if english is a second language to them where it is understandable that a few words would be misspelled and not have perfect grammar, but even then its easier to understand than some of these other people's. Though in cases where english is a first language there isn't really much of an excuse. Sure there will still be an occasional misspelling on a tricky word, I misspell words occasionally, though comments shouldn't look something like this "lol why there red colrz they're plz" (This is a made up comment to illusrate my frustration with comments like these) Very hard to understand. I know I shouldn't read youtube comments as I know I'll get mad eventually, though against all logic and reason I still do... >_< Time to travel to a better world again, before I lose my mind again trying to understand this one.

Anyhow, back on topic. Interesting that Remember 11 has a similar tips/vocab system as Steins;Gate. Especially in a medical game that is important, as the vast amount of medical terms for all the 100 billion diseases, and problems with the body can happen, aren't known to most people. It allows the authors/developers to use complex words to allow greater immersion to the medical/science words while still giving "normal people" like us the ability to understand them.

It is indeed shocking how much space modern games use. I can't seem to recall if I've installed games using more than 1-3 GB In the case of a visual novel being larger than that, it is understandable to think that it would be a great 60+ hour masterpiece. I seem to remember Aselia/Yumina the Ethereal being 1-2 GB for the whole game to install and they're both 60+ epics. Imaginning a novel bigger than that, I would think that the story can still be finished in 60+ hours, but would have many more routes from anywhere to 10-20. A friend of mine mentioned that there was a game with visual novel elements with 38 endings, forget the name. But yeah, considering how most of what I've gotten from games is indie, the games have been short and inexpensive. and not more than a few hundred megabytes. The next big game purchase I plan to get is Seinarukana which I expect to cost around $40-$50, not much else interests me except for a potential new remake of a dungeon crawler series made by Atlus that I enjoy called Etrian Odyssey.

This will be half of my reply, I'm also sorry for being later with this than before, my sleep and eating patterns have been messed up adapting to the new summer hours at work. I will finish this hopefully sometime in the next few days. Luckily there seems to be a little more news from JAST that Hanachirasu is on its way. This will make it quicker for Seinarukana to come out. Speaking of the game I found a piece of its soundtrack used in one of the final bosses which is a rearrangement of the Aselia the Eternal opening. Its pretty epic and escalates the hype I already have for this game. Here's the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BrKZheQRIM
