(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 :)

The wait is worth it to get this awesome wall of text XD. Now its time for mine!

Alternate worlds overall are an interesting concept when done right. It seems like when exploring a critical choice point. For the Haruhi movie. I suppose that the reason is that she never went to Kyon's school, not having her god abilities at the time. Kozumi (if that's his name, could be wrong) didn't have a reason to transfer since he wasn't an Esper sent to keep an eye on Haruhi. There were other factors as well I imagine. 

Speaking of the Alternate Worlds concept. It reminded me of what Hanachirasu seems to be about. Apparantly similar to Seinarukana it was announced to be in progress, though not much else has been heard from it. Apparantly Japan not being nuked in WWII is what caused the alternate universe from what I've read. Since its from Nitroplus. I expect it to be pretty well written. Hopefully JASTUSA will post more news about upcoming VNs soon. Its always exciting when news is posted from them.

I am enjoying Steins;Gate from what I've read so far. What makes this VN interesting is how it has a "tips" page, which functions as a glossary of various science, otaku, and chunibyou terms. (I didn't even know what chunibyou meant until I read this VN which leads into another discussion about a particular anime which I'll talk about in another paragraph). It helps to make the game easier to understand. And its interesting how many real world references there are. It feels like a real life situation with a group discovering how to send up to 36 byte text messages to the past. It is interesting seeing the effects of time travel, though time travel is a difficult concept for me to understand, this game gives a theory that is easier to swallow than the traditional "time is a river" theory.

It is cool when an anime adapted from a VN takes most of its music as well, though it will normally be remixed, and sometimes the original or remix will sound slightly better. Though the intensity of the moment is always felt more in the original VN scene. It also feels strange to see a VN you've read be adapted to an anime. Its like it has a foreign feel even though its based on the same source.

I forget if I said this before or not, though its cool how most VNs will provide a soundtrack library in game so you can listen to the game's music at your leisure. Its disappointing when a game has great soundtrack yet doesn't have a way to listen to its soundtrack outside of the game. Sure you can pause the game at the area in most cases, though it isn't always possible to get to a specific area easily, and quickly.

Online games seem to be one of those things that are damaging the modern video game industry. Being online forces you to be at the mercy of the people managing the servers, and when they go down, you can't access your game. Or if your own internet goes down there's nothing that can be done to play. For multiplayer games it is nessacary since the internet is needed to allow several different computers to connect. But it becomes a huge hinderence when you just want to play single player.(which is pretty much the only type of game I'll play nowadays with a few exceptions). And as you said when the developers focus more on the multiplayer, they don't focus on the single player elements and story, characters by extension. Of course there are some series that have become all about the multiplayer, have a 2 hour campaign and are still $50-$60 (Not sure what games are priced like in other currencies, I've heard from Australia they're even more expensive than $60)

Elder Scrolls online indeed sounds lame. I'm guessing it is using the free-2-play model that many other mmos use. Even if you wanted to explore the whole game continent you'd be forced to interact with other players, and if you're just interested in playing single player, that's not an option. While the individual games can be very addictive, it feels strange that every side quest organization (like with the Thieves Guild/Mage's Guild) ends up with you becoming the leader of said organization. Its felt strange since I suppose I'm used to being a follower. Though I read about how the Dark Brotherhood ends up in Oblivion and it feels the same as in Skyrim. Its like they copy and pasted the story for that group to the next game.

Aside from rpgs and VNs I use Steam and GOG to get games for the  PC, from how I've used them they both have good strengths and weaknesses. Steam has many great indie games, and rpgs overall a good library for any type of game, though because of the DRM requires you to be online to use its features, it has an "offline mode" though it doesn't seem to be useable, and a few games use cloud storage which makes those games impossible to play while offline.

And GOG has a good library of retro old school games, but not as much in terms of "Anime Games" Through its anti-DRM policy allows you to play the games you get there offline, and backuped. They also give you bonuses for free with the game such as its artwork and soundtrack. It seems like there are an equal amount of good and bad reasons for using both.

In Seinarukana it looks amazing from the videos I've seen of it and what you've said. It looks like they save your characters' skills in a vault, and you pick 3 of those as the active skills for the character's category. Its better than how you had to delete a weak skill to replace with a stronger one. You can edit your character's moves outside of battle more easily. It also looks like you can change squads 3 and 4 to be All Rounder squads which will be useful early game when you likely don't have many party members. And not have to have Eternals to use them. It also appears they've increased the digit limit so a character's hp could go up to 999,999 which will help make the enemies in Super Hard Mode much stronger. It seems like these changes will allow room to develop cooler and more complex strategies which is always fun. If I somehow manage to find legitimate information on when the game will be released I'll let you know. Even though I'm not a fan of the social network sites like Twitter, I might check JAST's twitter page from time to time.

Gadget Trial sounds interesting from the gameplay perspective. Even though I like having great story in games like in most RPGs I would still play it. Some of the classics like the Atari games, and Pac-Man I'll play just for the awesome gameplay. A strategy game similar to Aselia is worth it :) It sounds like it brings out that feeling of a military commander, it sort of reminds me of the Civilization games which I enjoy from time to time.

True the magic system is something I don't see very often. I always enjoy elemental magic using either the basic fire/water/wind/earth. Or Ice/Fire/Lightning/ Or something that adds Light and Darkness on top of it. Though I've never seen a blue/red/green/black system that represents water, ice/fire/earth, lighting/moon, darkness. It is pretty facinating. It doesn't nessacarly go into an elemental rock/paper/scissors like a game like pokemon does. Though it gives them specialties in the types of roles they perform. It also seems to have a mild effect on their personalities. Like with Aselia being quiet, and somewhat aloof in the beginning. The Green spirits like Esperia and Halion seem to be pretty nurturing and protective of their friends (suiting their defender and supporter specialities). Orpha is awesome. Its funny how she calls Yuuto Papa. And its admirable how she cares about her fellow spirits. She's really useful in hard mode now that she has more spells.

Challenging games certainly are more memorable than the easy ones. I don't remember many of the easy games I've played. The best experiences I've gotten from the harder games. I suppose the consequences of video games appealing to a wider audience is that it has to be easier so everyone can beat them, otherwise most people wouldn't even beat them. Though when playing on an easy mode it cheapens the experience. It feels like "I didn't really beat the game or defeat those enemies, they're weaker than they're supposed to be. I didn't fight that boss at its true strength." I wonder if because of these thoughts pretend easy mode doesn't exist and start at normal mode in all games then moving up to higher difficulties afterwords :D.

I love it when games use new game+ since you keep your current strength you don't feel weakened at all, yet can continue playing the game and story from the beginning sometimes with even harder challenges. Aselia handles this mechanic better than any other rpg I've seen before. It makes it feel like your character levels have meaning, since 30 is high leveled for normal mode and low leveled for hard mode. Bosses around level 25- 30 haven't felt very powerful until playing this game. The default difficulty being on normal mode feels very good, since the higher difficulties and challenges are unlocked on new game+. Its also fun to be able to see the things you've missed in the 1st playthrough. I didn't get Muller Sephis (I think that's the best trainer's name) until the 2nd playthrough. And I know how get her for the following playthroughs.

As for Mai Hime/Otome. It makes sense to me that both series take place in completely different universes. Since it isn't a simple matter of the characters from Mai Hime coming into a new universe in a different situation. The Otome counterparts were complete opposites in several cases such as Mashiro and Midori (I think her name was). Though I've heard from some places that Otome is in the same universe as Hime, with Mai in Otome being the one from Hime. I don't think any sense of rationality can explain the reasoning of how the characters from the Hime-verse even if their memories were erased had their personalties altered. If I remember from Hime, the Hime star was supposed to grant any wish if I remember? Though it was destroyed in the final battle with Mai and Mikoto. In the end it seems easier on the mind and enjoyment factor of the series to think of the Hime and Otome-verses as completely different and stand alone.

Arika is an interesting protagonist. It seems like she's the type that grows on you which she did. I think that by spending time with her it allowed the viewer to see how Arika is a good character past her initial annoying phase. Another great thing about the ending that despite Arika being the true princess, she hasn't had the proper training that is nessacary to rule a country and is better staying at the side of the ruler. While Mashiro wasn't the true princess and intially didn't care as much about the citizens grew to care more after being kicked out of her home and seeing what the citizens had to go through. This allowed her to be a better ruler. And lead the show to a satsfying ending.

Hopefully this flood of text will provide hours of entertainment XD. Just kidding.

I can't believe the postman forgot the mail!! oh wait a minute... nice try but I won't be fooled by that again xD (If you don't understand neither do I so don't worry :P )

It has begun, I thank you for the medal, I'd like to also thank my mum and my dad for yelling at me to not play anime to loudly, and for my siblings for mocking me as I tried to recreate a dance I had seen from Lucky Star, unsuccessfully I might add since I am only one being. I'd also like to mention that what has begun is that my sister, well one of the two that has been watching anime, has decided to join me in watching anime in Japanese, I know that this is crucial stage because she is not properly appreciating Nagi no Asukara, she complains that the subtitles move to quickly and I think this will improve her reading, so not only is anime damn cool. It helps you learn to read... and sort of learn a bit of Japanese!

On the other hand my other sister told me that one of my favourite shows is stupid and boring because she doesn't like it in Japanese.... well fine then... I don't care.... I.... don't.... *hides in corner and cries* TT^TT

You actually sort of reminded me of dog fighting, I don't know why but I imagine two little dogs (my sister) fighting stupidly over some food another dog (probably me) already ate and you just standing laughing.... well.... I don't know how relevant this is but whenenver people use dogs to explain stuff it sinks into my brain easier... njot as easily as if they used cats... jesus what am I even talking about, I am wasting your precious life, do you realise that, right now you're reading this wondering when it will end and your life is getting closer and closer to ending... wow. o.o I'm sorry for slowly killing you xD

.... I want some cheesecake too, you're mean, I hope Hitler tried to steal it from you! T^T 

Wow I assign voices too! Sometimes I just copy voices I've heard on TV like for you, you have a really deep voice, not like Batman's voice though... actually I've never seen Batman I've only ever heard people trying to be Batman, you might sound like Batman :o Still not making sense... heheh well when I type I am alsways saying heaps of words while I'm typing words from ages ago so I have to stop and re-say everything and that's why I have a squillion typos! :3 I don't talk really fast outside of my head (wrong way to say that xD) so maybe you're a mind reader!! :D

Wait... so you're sharing this cheesecake? I take back the Hitler thing!! ^_^ Imagine if someone did read out messages *shifty eyes* then one day intercepted and wrote to me and you and soon made us hate each other somehow (this is never going to happen... but just say it does) then one day we both realise "wait... that lie never even made sense in the first place" then that person doesn't drink his/her tea but virtually throws it on us to virtually escape and we're virtually bruning while she/he is virtually escaping into thin air and we're just left looking like a couple of sopping wet muppets. I think I have trust issues xD

This is my third week back at school and my teachers are still waiting for holiday homework... every class I go to I just want to steal someone's lunch money so I can go to real prison and be seperated from that hell. otherwise I just wish a demon would pop up out of the ground and I'd acidentally sign a contract with it and we'd go on protecting the earth... sort of, well protecting the earth the way a demon would. ^_^ This actually sort of sounds really fun and I'm getting really exciting only to be disappointed haha, but that's life isn't it! :P

You better globally be not offended or you're going to prison! Sorry I don't make the rules I just enforce them.... haha oh wait, I make AND enforce the rules, hehe I am supreme, you are to not be offended or I will have you imprisoned for 20 years- life! >:) Only joking, you wouldn't last in prison, or would you, hmm... maybe a fight to the death, if you win then you get to live if you loose... well you're dead xD Only joking, I'm not that insane... I don't think :P I swear I meant it as a compliment, though some people get mad if I call them cute, being called cute is like the ultimate compliment from me since cute things are my favourite things in the whole entire universe... wait does that make it weird for me to call someoen cute, I don't really know. *Brain explodes* To write cutely is an art you must master at a young age, and I think that it is a natural talent for you, because you have impressed me right from the start! You're a natural born, cute-writing-person which is now a really big thing since I a pretend prime minister!

!!!! My sister said the exact same thing to me!! Except it was with this face -____- but still I say that's the same thing! Haha that's pretty funny, now every tiem I see these faces I just imagine a whale's tale behind it ^_^

... Oh my gosh sorry I didn't mean to crush your dreams TT^TT 

O.O The only time a teacher has ever chased a student is when this boy in my year shoved me into her, except I think there may have been other times but I've only seen it once (or maybe I only remember this one because it involves me hehe) but she had a coffee and it spilt all over me and her and she wanted him to apologise but this boy kept running so she chased him, grabbed him and made him apologise. I don't think he got in trouble but I'm pretty sure she doesn't work at my school anymore xD Coffee hurts though :PI am laughing so much though, a teacher chasing a student, and someone who questions students when they leave? hahaha that's hilarious, I write fake notes and pretend I have free periods all the time, though when I fail school I'll feel like a muppet. xD I skipped out on PE all the time, is PE not the most pointless class, if someone is fat PE at school is not going to fix that, maybe the theory side of it might, but embarrassing kids in front of their classmates only makes them resent school, and forcing fragile people like me to do PE only makes me even more lazy. (I'm not really fragile but teachers at my school tend to think that xD For some reason everyone believes everything I say, I could lie to anyone and they'd think I'm telling the truth!)

Monkey, *nod* *nod* hmm... since I was little I always wanted to be the monkey because monkeys were my favourite animal (sort of like in Fruits Basket Toohru wanted to be the cat) but then when I found out I wasn't a lame Rat like my sister (which she's really confused about that because she thinks she's an Ox and she's thought that for ages and now she's all confused) anyways, I'm not really much like the tiger, I don't even really think I'm worthy of being the tiger, wow super depressing or what? xD Yeah I think her name was Kisa? And she was in love with that sheep boy! ^_^ 

Wait... I just read about Tiger zodiac stuff and most of it is true except all the fearsome stuff because I'm not like that :P Well now that that's all cleared up, moving on to the next paragraph (replying like this takes so long but you're so funny!! :D )

I think that humans are angry beings, cross dressers or not, all the people stressed out because they obviously haven't ever watched anime and don't know how to relax! Silly beings! Cross dressers would feel more appreciation for the stares if they just stared at anime more! :P

fith on the agenda, get Hitler to shave his mustache, it wouldn't at all be cute if he got cake stuck in it! *shivers* Imagine if Hitler only stole that cake so you would come back for it and so you'd become his friend. Or maybe he was so lonely that he stole it to try and get people to share it with him but everyone hated him because he stole it... :'( Aww now you're starting to make me sad, no Hitler is a baddie... baddie.... ahhh!!

Y-you've seen Minami-ke? .... *starry eyes* I hand over my supreme rulership to you sensei, do you best at training all these incompetant fools, you are well equipt with your knowlege, please teach them well! *sob* (actually maybe I might just continue with my idea of you being vice prime minister because I still need to make more rules up!) I LOVE minami-ke, Chiaki was my favourite character but I wish I could be really energetic and crazy like Kana! Oh my gosh after I watched that I started calling my older sister Haruka-nee-sama and she thought I was swearing at her so I got banned from saying it! TT^TT How absolutely hilariously tragic is my life?! hahaa :D

Oh my gosh I am like that around my family too!! But I think it's because I rarely see my cousins and when I do my parents try and battle to see who's children are the best then they realise I am their child and they give up xD

Only 21.32% of people smell bad? Really? I hope I'm not in that percentage! *sniff sniff* I think I'm safe for now xD I think there might be more than that, surely, mahybe like 21.34% xD

People who don't listen to me about anime are seriously dumb heads because I am a qualified genius, my friend made me a certificate and everything, she also made me one for graduating anime dream school (this is back when I was 13 but it still counts!!!) so she's just a dumby! xDI love Japanese voices, even if I can't understand what they're saying, they're way cuter than the English ones, Americans quite often ruin anime which is sort of sad because that means less people watch it which makes it hella expensive. I keept saying hella and I would never say that out loud so lets just ignore those slip ups xD

An angel? Me? Oh no not really! I'm sure there must be other girls that hate it! The only time I will ever voluntarily go shopping is if we're going to the city and that's only so I can go to this shop called Minotaur which is literally the greatest thing Australia has to offer! But then I only spend about half an hour there staring at stuff and I want to go home so usually I just pay heaps for postage and get it delivered xDWhat confuses me more than "the joys of shopping" is "the joys of window shopping" that is even more ridiculous!! My friends do it all the time and I usually make up some excuse to get out of that circle because it's so boring and excerise is like the devils work! It's close to being as bad as school itself! *gasp* :3

Well here is how I think people invent this word;

*sitting around wishing for a better life* "I should be a cool kid!" *thinks really really hard until blue in the face* "Well this'll do" *types the devils word into some social media site* "I'm gonna be popular!!" *sends it and everything thinks this is cool but really they are all confused losers who have no life and who obviously have no life since they're all saying they only live once as an excuse, my excuse is "I do what I want. But that wouldn't make a cool # saying would it? -_____- what am I even blabbing on about? Gahh! It just makes me so mad!! sorry xD

Well... she did try to be cuter, remember and she totally scared her brother xD Sher should have searched that up on the internet instead of searching whatever it was she searched. But i like that she kept her skirt long and didn't change herself because that's a bad lesson that I, as prime minister, don't want my citizens learning xD 

Now you've left me wanting cheesecake TT^TT You better share with me next time! Well I have completed this in about 45 minutes so I beat you :P hahaha!

Sorry I have been M.I.A lately, the war to get my siblings into anime is a rough one, but I think I am winning, I share a bedroom with my sister and cousin and my cousin has now completed Chobits and Fruitsbasket, she refuses to watch them in Japanese but at least this is a start, my sister has finished fruits basket and is watching Nagi no Asukara, I am so proud of myself right now! Another of my many sisters has gotten back into anime with The World God Only Knows, I don't really know how I made this happen, my mum's pretty mad about it but who cares?! (I'm worried I may regret this decision because my sisters are really competitive so they'll be fighting about who's seen what first.... oh well!)

But really 1000x sorry, it's been like 12 days since your message and like 7 since I read it! (sorry I had to work and I read it then didn't have time to reply)

Also Happy late Easter, do you celebrate easter? I don't know if it's rude to wish someone a happy Easter if you don't celebrate it, hmm... anyway, I hope you had a good day, unless it was like any ordinary day, then I wish all of your days have been super good! I'm talking really fast in my head so if this stuff starts to not make sense just laugh at my stupidity and solve the puzzle!

Okay now to actually replying to your message:

You probably need some sort of inbox refresher so all your emails don't run away! Imagine if they went to hide in someone elses email inbox and someone opens their email to find that you have a comment from me, haha that would be pretty funny!

How do your holidays work? We have two weeks now (I must return to school tomorrow... haven't completed the homework, I really shouldn't be on here but I didn't want to completely forget about you!) then two weeks after about 8 weeks of school, then another 9-11 weeks of school 2 weeks and 6 weeks at the end of the year! :D 6 week vacation is literally the best thing ever, except in the last few days when you realise that school does exist and you didn't just dream about that horrid place D:

You know, for some reason, don't be offended by this... actually I can't really tell you what to be offended by or not, but once I'm prime minister of my country I will make sure no one will be offended by this and it will go global and you'll have to not be offended. ANYWAY, what I was going to say is that, well in a way, you're sort of cute, the way that you write I mean... O///O

I wanted to be a police officer for a while... but I don't think I could tell people that I've found their kids/parents/siblings/friends/any other relations dead, I couldn't deal wirth it, too much pressure and... T^T just the thought of it makes me sad!

Maybe you should join me in kicking evil people's butts with awesome stick throwing skills, I'm somewhat of a hero around here :p

Wow you've really thought a lot about school, high school is sort of good because the administration office is so dumb, I write a note and sign it with some random signature and they sign me out, it doesn't effect my attendance and I get to leave school and do whatever I want, it's pretty good, usually I just walk home because my parents both work pretty late xD and in primary school you had to wait in the office for someone to pick you up, stupid! I used to wish i went to a boarding school, like how lame is that!? It was just an idea to leave my parents but you would literally never be allowed to leave school! O.O that's terrifying!

Are you still a stick? I don't know why but I just started thinking about Chinese Zodiacs, so what animal are you? I'm the Tiger ^_^ The animal you are determines what character from Fruits basket you are, that's why I'm curious :p

Cross dressers are annoying because they make me want to stare at them out of confusion but they get offended when I stare, seriously, if it's that offensive don't dress like that and I won't stare! Gosh! Wow... I sound really mean right now, but it's the truth, one time I was looking at a cross dress and he said "I bet you don't stare at regular girls" and I just started laughing because if they're pretty I would stare at them xD He/she got all angry and walked off, seriously though I don't see what the big deal of being stared at is, though if someone stares at me I'll throw sticks at them! >:D

Cake day is in the process of being made! haha if I was friends with Hitler I'd make him not kill people, because he actually did a few good deeds in Germany, you know, before killing all those Jews T^T Bad Hitler! No killing! :'( He stole your cake!? What if he steals my cake? Nooooo I don't want to be friends with a cake thief!! :(

You wrote a really long message! I'm not even half done yet! :D

When I become prime minister of my country I am going to make sure anyone who starts talking about world problems or their own issues is locked in their house with no escape and fruits basket on repeat because that person could learn a thing of two from Toohru and her non self absorbedness (can't think of the word for that at the moment) Then they'll have to watch Minami-Ke on repeat because Kana's love for manga and her laziness is a good example!

Sadist doing their thing is cool, except, I dunno, maybe there are different stages of sadistness, I'm not interesting in the ones who constantly obsess with death and stuff, I like the ones who are always mean to people and... I dunno if I remember someone I like who is a sadist I'll tell you because my brain is still running a million miles every second! :D

I used to be really shy and someone just saying "hi" to me would make me feel sick, I used to sit in the library at morning and afternoon break, then I met two girls who are my friends, I'm still not sure if I actually like them, it's been 4 years and I'm sort of a normal person but they're always complainigng so they have sort of scared me away from having friends with their useless nonsense that they splutter. So I think I'm sort of nervous and shy around new people but I'd never get to know anyone because 73% of all people are useless. Don't worry, anyone on this site in not in that 73% (plus I have tried to get my friends into anime for 4 years and they still won't listen to me, the this guy who is friends with one of my friends' brother told my friend to watch anime and now she watches it and always laughs if I haven't seen the pervy things she's been watching and even just talking about it like this makes me mad because she always used to say that anime is stupid and she'd never watch it in japanese because she's not japanese and that's stupid and "what's with their eyes they look retarded" which I yelled at her only for using the word "retarded" because that is seriously a bad word to use! >:( does this sound stupid? I'm probably one of those complainer types T^T I don't want to be this way!)

Online shopping is literally the best thing ever, I hate going clothes shopping, or, any type of shopping (unless it's me going to an anime store then straight home because that is fine with me) but my mum just buys all my clothes online and gets them delivered, I don't really need much clothes though, just a couple pairs of pyjamas and my school uniform, since I only leave the house to go to school xD

Hahaha he probably just thought you were really bad with punctuation! :P My mum is one of those peopel that Googles everything, then she says it, like lately she's been saying Yolo and I don't know about you but anyone who says that needs to be shipped off in the Titanic! -___- 

Oh my god I'm laughing so much, I'm not completely disturbed like Kuroki must be.... pfft that was such a good show, seriously, I loved it so much though I was cringeing half of the time :P Would you really hug her? Even if she had her hair up in twintails and was wear glasses and pulling that weird face? Haha I think I'd like to be friends with her, she'd be a little more normal, plus she has a super cute friend from middle school! ^_^

It's finally over, you can now do a super happy dance and return to whatever it was you were doing! Again sorry this took so long xD

Ah yes, the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. It was a very awesome movie indeed. The "alternate world" type of situation is pretty fun to analyze and we got to see new sides to the characters. Keeping an open mind about what type of movie gets created is important as well. It seems like people sometimes fall into a trap where they expect a type of ending to happen based on what they want to see, and when it differs from that prediction, they think it wasn't as good a movie it seems like. Letting the creator guide the story and accepting it is important to do. Like you said, whatever happens with the new Psycho Pass movie and second season. I'll accept it.

That is true. It does seem like a strange question I would ask. I can't think of any anime where I thought the filler was good enough to stand up alongside the canon. The extensive thriller seen in shows like Naruto/Bleach is a clear example to even people who haven't seen the anime or just part of it shows how damaging it can be to a show. Personally I'd rather that they just went off air until the manga went further ahead and then resume where they left off 3-6 months where they were. Watching other anime during that time is a good solution to wait out the hiatus. Though there is the type of filler in Gunslinger Girl where they extend on the backstory of Elsa. While in the manga it was only a small arc. And didn't have much detail on her. It deviates from the manga naturally by adding something, though I didn't mind it (I did see the anime before the manga and didn't know it was filler at the time so maybe that's a factor). It did seem to add more to her character though which isn't entirely a bad thing, and the important points about the character remained intact in the anime.

2 out of 3 people dislike it? Wow. I wonder if those people just don't like slice of life in general or not. I could see that if someone doesn't like the genre then its hard to connect with that type of thing. Anyways, it is inspirational overall since Ohana seems to have a strong will to get through difficult relationship, and work issues. 

I got the Steins;Gate VN recently to get the limited edition preorder bonuses. And it is very good. I planned to see the anime at somepoint since it is related to Chaos;Head and done by Nitroplus. Though I never got around to it. Playing the source material is more exciting though since I'll get to see the different endings. Even though it doesn't have gameplay, I expect it to take at least 50 hours until I finish the 1st playthrough.

It seems like Visual Novels in general have extremely epic music in them. Even when compared to anime/video game music. I'm not sure why that is, though it is easy to be addicted to the sound gallery after finishing the game and just listening to the music there.

FPS games and DLC always seem to go hand in hand these days. I used to play a couple of FPS games back then, but I stopped playing them a long time ago. I don't think my dislike of them is because of what the gameplay itself is about, but it seems like FPS represents always online multiplayer and short campaign gameplay (which should be single player as the normal game) which brings nasty players into the game. As well as exploiting the customers through disc locked content like you said. If a game managed to put in great story elements in a fantasy world in a FPS, I might enjoy such a game. But FPS games as they are now represent a lot about the modern gaming industry which I dislike. Fantasy and RPGs are where its at. It feels fun to develop your character(s) and experience a great story and world.

I think I read a little bit about that story when I was researching the message boards about Aselia. Sounds like similar to Demonbane, it got stuck in development hell. They haven't said much about it it seems like. I read a post on the message boards that the progress of games as of Feb 4 2014, that Seinarukana "Translation is mostly done. Extensive Testing on the Horizon" My guess is that means the game has to go through beta testing, to make sure that the english words run smoothly, throughout all possible routes and scenarios, and the battle system works properly. Since they've released Steins;Gate, hopefully that means they'll focus on the other games more from this point. Demonbane was apparantly delayed for several years, though when I found Jast, I was able to get it so I didn't experience that wait. 

Even if Seinarukana takes another year or so to come out. I'm sure the wait will be worth it. Better late than never. Just the throught of playing another game similar to Aselia is exciting. I can't think of any games that have a system similar to Aselia's.

My guess is that Super Hard is identified by red save files, since normal = white, hard = blue, and clear data = yellow. I would like to see more details about my save files though. Since I'll normally make new save files for a boss fight or event I enjoyed, and aside from the chapter, I can't remember why I made the file. My guess is that technical limitations back around 2001 made it difficult to make a big save file system.

It is fun when new game + mode increases the difficulty to match the endgame characters. You know that you're much stronger, but your enemies have also gotten stronger than you to keep the challenge going. I was going to try and get SS ranks again like I did in my 2nd playthrough, though it isn't practical with the enemies as they are now. Incinerate is pretty devastating to many of my squads that I have to sacrifice offense to block it. And if I want to get a good rank like S or A I can't spend too much time training. Lucikly Orpha knows Incinerate as well now. And Leap Attack IV/Heaven's Sword isn't too bad for the etrangers and green spririts. Though I imagine Fury II is coming around the corner which will bring much pain lol.

Hm, that is strange that you're missing a Kaori cg. Which one are you missing? It looks like I got all of them assuming there aren't anymore hidden ones that go to the same slot. I might have an idea on which one is an optional scene.

Yup, there is no justification behind Makishima's crimes. He represents the opposite of what the Sibyl System is. And Kougami to an extent I suppose. It makes it harder to relate to antagonists that don't have justification. In an anime like Higurashi, it was mostly clear why everyone of the characters who went on a killing spree did what they did. Even without taking Hinamizawa syndrome into account. I can't see it in Makishima, which makes the characters seem like completely different type of people.

It is true that Shun is a bastard. It felt good to think I would be killing him in the Sargios capital. Though I suppose the main thing that relates Shun to Yuuto is how they both love Kaori. Their love manifested in very different forms. Since Shun's was the type of twisted love. Attacking her when he wants to "protect her". Though he was being consumed by his sword throughout the whole game so its tough to say whether his actions by that point belonged more to Shun or to 'Oath' When he is completely consumed by his sword near the end though he almost seems pitable, despite all the horrible things he's done all for "saving the world". It was like Shun died when Shun the Ruling Sword emerged. They felt like completely different characters. Shun is a tricky character, I do dislike him, but at the same time, its almost like I feel sorry for him. I'm not sure what I mean by that.

It also seems like you've seen Mai-Hime and Mai-Otome according to your anime list. They were pretty awesome, they were both similar in terms of the character (apperances) and story. Though they had their own elements that stood out. I think the main reason I watched them was that I found out Yuki Kajiura composed the soundtrack in them. Though it is also one of the cool mahou shoujo shows out there like Nanoha and Madoka. It felt hard to get into Mai-Otome at first since I wasn't sure about the new protagonist, and how they had Mashiro's personality take a total 180 degree turn. Though they grew on me it seemed like. I'll discuss more details in my next reply.
