(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 :)

I appreciate is so much i made this special image JUST for you guys :) ok actually i just put alot of images together but it comes with lots of feeling from me, i really appreciate your time :)

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 :)

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

Ah I completely get you... Basically what I read from those five word people are "You're annoying" "I don't want to talk to you" and "Stop talking to me" ;3; I feel cold winds blowing through my room when I talk to those kinds of people...

I put effort into finding the exact emoticon to show my emotions so that the person I'm talking to doesn't take anything the wrong way xP

Woooo I see some lengthy comments down here xD

Noo! You can't tell me what to do :T ... but... I think... I guess I might stay as the prime minister, my people need me, you need me, and I have a feeling that the ways of the postmaster might corrupt me and make me a mean fighting, stick throwing, moo mooing monster, and I might accidentally kill you somehow O.O And we definitely cannot have that, can we? :P

O.O Maybe we should start posting SPOLIER ALERT on all of our messages in case those weird people who stalk our messages are in the middle of one of the many shows we talk about! I agree that Meiko is cuter, but calling her Meiko makes me sad because her mum calls her that and the parts with her mum make me sad T^T I really love how childish Menma is though, how she sort of doesn't understand somethings and is really stubborn, it's so cute xD

Wow hurry up and write this story I wanna read the story of you eating trees!! I can't imagine how you would get yourself into that kind of "unavoidable fate" but anyhow, it sounds like an amazing story!! :D

Anime characters who are short are adorable, people who are short are somewhat adorable, me being short is just weird (obviously I am not counted in this groups called "people" because I am actually a 3D hologram from the future, I'm guiding you on your journey for greatness!) 

I saw a fan art of Yui crying, I will find it and somehow send it to you or post it on my page or something and you will understand the trauma of seeing such a person cry!! T^T It's actually really depressing :P Adorable things are the best don't be ashamed! Love the adorable (at least you're not into crazy hentai stuff... unless... you're not right? O///O )

What if I turned you into a hamster instead of a dog? I've never seen a real life hamster before, but they look so cute online and you could just hold them in your hands, >:D I'll turn you into a hamster fufufu!

Well I guess I would like to have a ghost friend, okay I promise if I somehow die first (most probably because I'm an idiot, or did I already say that, oh well) I will be sure to tell you anything you want to know, and I won't take your things and I'll try to stop you from misplacing all of your things! In exchange please don't not die in a waving position if I ever put you in my fridge! O.O please that's so scary!!!! :S

I am descriptive! What do you think when I say "Penguin Place"? Do you think and place filled with penguins because that's what it was!! Kyaa~ You're so cute ^_^ Panda's surely talk fast, c'mon they're just pretending to be slow so we don't watch them so much, I know I wouldn't want anyone watching me as I go about my daily business so they go slow so people get bored more easy!  I-It's not like I really care all that much about the pandas s-so don't get the wrong idea about it, okay?

I-I'm not a tree no way would I be something so embarrassing! I'm the white rabbit, sheesh, who do you think I am?! You're already a tree you silly person, well I guess partly tree, you stick! That's what you get for eating trees you'll never be allowed to play one because you're silly and might eat yourself!! Also you shouldn't cry yourself to sleep about it, tree runs in your blood, you just have to believe in yourself! :P

No you're right! I actually think the same thing!! If there are too many he(s) then it therefore becomes a witch laugh and is no longer cute!! hehe I can't believe you think that too I just thought I was weird... though I've been thinking that a lot about most things you say :P

Why did you call him a pedophile, (I'm laughing heaps because I know you spell and say that word different to me so it's really entertaining my simple mind!) O.O if someone tries to moderate how much cake I eat I will most likely have to punish them! That's just plain rude >.> Wow, you were so mean, I collected them saving them from people like you! Though after a while I couldn't stand picking them up and they smell gross :/

Who erased your memory I wonder? *shifty eyes*

W-well I won't destroy it, b-but not for you so don't go getting the wrong ideas! Nee-san isn't as cool as me so she can't join your whale clan, plus she doesn't even know what noise a while makes... probably... well she might because she instincly moans all the time whenever someone asks her a question but... she'd got attitude, attitude that you don't need :T

Are whales your favourite sea animal by any chance? :P Nooo don't follow the path of teacherhood, become greater than all that is, you don't need smelly kids who probably haven't showed in years knowing the ways of the whale clan, we can only have worthy people!!

I guess it's probably where I'm from, because here cold weather is like below 20 degrees which probably to everyone else in the world isn't really that cold :P But the hottest it gets is like 45 (sometimes higher, and no air conditioning in our school... though I sorta hate air conditioning anyway but still!) soemtimes over 45 but not that much, Winter always goes too quickly T^T I hate autumn and spring because they don't know what they are, one day they're super cold the next they're super hot -___- make up your mind!! (I'm very offended by stupid things... as you can see xD )

I never said media was boring, I said studio arts is boring, I never even got to do media because I had a clash on my timetable and *retells a long story* ... and so she threw a cat and me and... wait this is another story... O.O I never said it was boring your eyes didn't work right to read my message right!! TT^TT  So I didn't know textiles was actually sewing, who could know that?! O////O w-why don't they just call it sewing? :( No we don't have that kind of a class, though I'll be sure to make everyone school have one when I'm prime minister, people must learn the ways to becoming an animal! As for the classes I do, O.O I didn't even put this in to the selection!! 20th Century History, Psychology, Studio arts (which is what I said was boring not Media!!! sheesh :P ) and Visual communications (which is also really boring but I'm good at it and being good at something is rare for me :P )

Hahaha the english definitions of the things you say are so funny xD But I wouldn't want to be the only giraffe with a short neck because everyone would pick on me!! T^T

O.O I'm confused, *scrolls through old message* Okay well... I'm the smartest human girl on this planet so I'm sure I know best and running really fast at the start of a race is not a good idea because then people will expect you to come first, one time we had to run like 4 ks and it was a full on race and it was the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to me ever! I only ran when people could see me and walked the rest of the ways but they all said I'm really slow because it took me like 40 minutes to finish >.< Though I got out of it because some girl was faking an asthma attack so I fake helped her (see I'm so smart, getting out of things is my specialty!)

Don't be mean! I'm trying really hard to convince him, I've even used the "if you're not gonna do it I won't wear my maid outfit" I think it's starting to work because he usually listens to everything I say because I am going to be prime minister! :D

N-no I won't let you have him! I know more about him I've been watching him all year... y-you can't just come in and take the only precious thing away from me... H-Hitler-sama he's only using you! He only wants the cake! T^T Please let me come to your house too! That's not fair if Hitler-kun and the cow gets to go and not me :'( You're so mean!

I love characters like Chiaki, how she acts codly towards Kana but Kana knows that she loves her, Haruka kind of scares me sometimes hehe, kyaa~ don't do it! Don't fall into the ways of Hosaka or you might freeze, you said you don't like winter right? And even in summer you can get cold? So don't strip your shirt off or you might die!! (I'm not even joking!!) 

Why are you being so mean and keeping Hitler-kun all to yourself, and ditching me? I thought we were friends! T^T

I don't understand why people have favourite colours, months, days or numbers, but I have a favourite times table so I accept that I am weird. Just in case you wanted to know my favourite times table is 7x8 beause I could never remember it so I just put it as my favourite and now I can remember it easily :D

Kyahaha I am an evil genius? Yay! At least someone actually recognises my smarts and not just myself :P

I can't remember what "it" is so I googled something, I didn't find it entertaining and you're laughing at me, are you bullying me? Are you a bully too? :'(

MY LAPTOP DID DIE right after the old message sent (thank god), but I managed to bring him/her/it back to life!

You don't eat them stickers! Don't you know what I'm talking about?! You must! You have to know or they whales won't appreciate you! Scratch 'n' sniff stickers, they're cool but weird and smell, yes, a bit like death, like maybe a dead apple if you have a apple smelling one... well not an apple smelling a sticker, a sticker that smells like an apple. Do you understand? :P

You should get a penguin cosplay! hahaha that would be so entertaining, I've been getting a lot of random stuff off the internet beause I recently found out that I have a quite a lot of money (better waste it now before someone tries to get me saving for university!!)

Well I guess I was a bit weird when I was a kid, but I'm an okay person now... well at least I don't make dinosaurs fight ot the death anymore >.<

You know you should give that cow a second chance, maybe it was just having a bad day and wanted to kill something, maybe he/she was trying to avenge his/her borhters and sisters and when you rose your hand he/she realised you did not in fact kill his/her brothers/sisters she he/she stopped and decided to pretend to be a good cow so you wouldn't kill him/her. Or maybe it was just a crazy cow?

Right, well when you figure out why it would be good to pretend to be a girl tell me :P

How do I know you're the real deal O.o You know, I have a lot of long losts, like I have a half brother, WHAAAAT?! I never knew that until last year, he's like 23 maybe, which is weird, how have I never met this man?! When I find him he better buy me losts of presents to pay back all the birthdays he's missed! Or just some cake would be okay, I imagine him to be like me for some reason, someone who eats cake and watches anime all day :P I bet it's not true, I don't want to meet anyone who doesn't like anime so... maybe I should go searching for him!

Yes, yes, I am Christ, please don't ignore me the way Christ from Angel Beats was ignored... that would be depressing! :P Christie Christie-Lee Christie is my real name yes, though you probably shouldn't spread the word, people will try and abuse my name and make me unfit to be prime minister :(

All I can imagine is the cow from adventure time staring at Finn and Jake while they sleep, please penguin-sama don't turn into a creepy cow like that! Oh wait... I just googled it and it's a horse now a cow, so it's fine, be a cow if you really want to xD

Noooo! I hate zombies they're the only things that scare me in horror movies!!! T^T Penguin-sama don't be a zombie, release your inner ghost to become one, I'll even build a time machine and stop my fan club from throwing sticks at you if I have to! :'(

So cute~ waiiiiit.... do you think I'm mean?! Aww! I knew I should hide my dark side :(

You and your amazing mooing, you're so cool penguin-sama! ^_^ 

*I'm not cool enough to have two messages so I'm replying to the second in this one*

Don't apologise for late replies!!! Seriously, i-it's not like I just sit around refreshing the page and wondering what you're doing... a-and I-I'm busy too you know with umm... future prime minister stuff and umm... stuff so yeah, d-don't think I'm waiting around for it every day... O////O
