about me

Hi, Madoka here :)

I'm one of them helpful type people who like to be of use, so if you need to know anything about the site or just want help finding a new series to watch, i will help in anyway i can (can't promise for the new series though lol). My personal preferences in series are quite large, im a big fan of slice of life, school life, comedy and pretty much any dectective type series (Gosick,Kamisama no Memo-chou  ect). That being said i watch most genres like action, sci-fi, horror and well just... anything. Only genre i don't put effort into is sport, not my thing, i usually find them quite boring.

I love talking so if you need help witn anything, watched a series i have seen and want to discuss it, want to just chat about anything from anime to what you plan to have for dinner, whatever, just leave me a message and i will try to reply within the week.
Im a big fan of the forum here so drop by if you wish to join us, we are very friendly people and love to talk. (I Especially hang out in the "currently airing series" section).

I don't have much more to say so here are some series i like, this isn't a top list of favourites or anything, i have too many series i could never choose favourites from, so it's just a random list of some series i have really enjoyed in some way or another:

Random list:
(Here is the random list with some personal comment, i used to write a lot more but to be spacious i kept it shorter). Remember these aren't favourites per-say, they are deffinetly some great series and amoungst some i love but not all assured are favourites, i tried to cover 1 series of at least the main genres...

Don't feel obligated to read this list, i keep adding to it so it gets longer but im trying to shorten it.


Yuruyuri is actually a series which is a favourite of mine, i love the style of comedy and the characyers are great, it's a great example of SOL/SL series. The comedy never feels to old and you find yourself attached to characters quite easily, i never find any episode feeling like it was made as a filler and i find it all so enjoyable. It also features my favourite soundtrack :)

Hanasaku Iroha

This is another great series, Some people have overlooked it but it's quite a well told story. It is actually quite serious, though it does have it's laid back side as well, the story tactles similar events which could happen in reality as Ohana gets a dose of reality, she is forced out of dreamworld to tactle hard working and sad results, life isn't always a matter of work hard for results, and this series shows that, With great OP(s)/ED(s) mostly done by Nano.RIPE (my favourite JP band) it's a great series for sure!

Darker Than Black (Kuro no Keiyakuya)

A series more in the supernatural/action genre set, The series to me is very well done, People gained abilities after a certain gate appeared on the earth, certain people it was pretty random but now these people are silently hunted down and commonly accused of crimes they don't commit which brings in lots of action, of course many use the powers for bad anyway. The story is actually very well told with lots of detail and the second of the series is quite more serious of i found it to be quite sad at times, but non the less a very enjoyable watch indeed.

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai (Ano Hana)

First let me say this is a series not to be taken lightly, it was a well written masterpiece of art and i think if you haven't seen it you should asap. The series tackles grief and how it effects people over time from childhood right through into later life. I think it is a good idea to have some tissue ready for the eyes as it's a real sad story and i can't speak for others but i was a victim of tears to this series, a amazing watch and strongly suggested to try.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai

Now normally i link to the first season but i choose the second in this case. Higurashi is a great series in the horror genre, it's not scarey as it is gorey, and though the first season is great it is split into indivual parts, though these all link and the second season explains it i found the second season to be something else, it is great and full of constant consistent plot, it keeps you watching for hours, gore and horror aside the story line for me was just amazing.

If you like visual novels, like me know... I love them :D i played a few, not loads but the numbers are adding up, if you enjoy them, let me know i love talking about them D:

Now ima Add Random image of Nagato >:D

(thats pretty dam awsome) anyways i love 'The Disapearance of Haruhi Suzumiya', Yes the real reason Nagoto is sitting here so nicely is because it's my favourite movie ^_^


Like Music? Me Too :D Add My Last.Fm or just see if i have any music taste alike you? Or heck come by and just say hi or see what music i got on at that second ^^

My Last.Fm page



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 ;)


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 :)

It sucks when people say things like that. It makes it clear that they didn't do their research on the shows. I'm always suprised at how ignorant people can be when they spout out this or that thing being a ripoff. Whenever there's a new show that I'm watching, I feel the need to research it almost instantly. By a simple visit to wikipedia I'll instantly become informed about any adaptations, spinoffs, sequels, and the source material. The date it came out and the creators. Its as if some people don't do this when they watch anime. I love Kanon and Clannad as well. They were made by the same people. That already makes them similar. Though that doesn't make Clannad a ripoff of Kanon. I actually like to see the similarities between works along with the differences. The similarities between creations give a sense of comfort when you're going to watch a show made by the same creators of a show you already love. I plan to continue watching it looking at the characters as their own individuals. It's an awesome cast. They also all have a unique personality which makes each of them memorable in their own right.

That scene with Nayuki's alarm clocks all going off made me laugh very hard. Especially since she still wouldn't wake up lol.

That is good to know. Whether I try or not I somehow manage to find out spoilers to many anime I watch before I finish them. I searched up "Kanon Makoto" and one of the suggestions that came up had the spoiler. I have to mentally prepare myself for the arcs to come. I'm still recovering from watching Angel Beats again.

An uguu alarm!!! That's an awesome alarm to have!!! Until now, I couldn't imagine how any phone alarm could have a pleasant sound.

I suppose people who aren't into mahou shoujos wouldn't enjoy it much based on the 1st few episodes of the 1st season. Its interesting how Madoka and Nanoha's target audience were young men like us. Maybe that's part of the reason I also enjoyed them so much. Nanoha makes friendship look much cooler in how she is able to reach out to her opponents while fighting them. There really isn't a single "evil" character I can think of in the show. Fate was able to recover very well because of Nanoha after Fate's mom rejected her. The scene in ep 13 of season 1 was very touching since they officially become friends then. There's also the 2nd season where Hayate goes through a lot. It felt very sad when Reinforce had to sacrifice herself.

It is true that Dark anime has a certain appeal to it. I can't seem to get enough of Higurashi, Claymore, and 11 Eyes. Though that doesn't mean that Light anime isn't as good. Light anime hold the potential to entertain and provoke deep thought as much as Dark anime. Key's works, Haruhi, Love Hina, and Negima are all awesome works, as well as anime/manga that I continue to think about on a regular basis. It seems to me that Light anime instill a larger sense of hope than Dark anime. While Dark anime doesn't make you feel despair they seem to not have as many positive feelings that go along with it. I guess there's a lot more tragedy in Dark anime. But in the end both types seem to have a hopeful message. What do you think defines a Light and Dark anime?

Kanon is pretty good. It feels like it has a few elements similar to Clannad which is awesome (seeing that they're the same creators). Its got great laughs and I love all the characters.(which I'll bet is nessacary as Key's works can have some very sad parts in them)

My bad habit of finding out spoilers for a show I watch still remains. I accidentally found out what happens to Makoto. Though I don't know how/why it happens. That part will remain unspoiled luckily. Its cute how many of them have a type of verbal tic like "~uguu" and "~auu"

I also saw Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha recently. All 3 seasons and the 2 movies. Very good anime. Its interesting to see how Nanoha goes to great lengths to befriend her opponents. Its also cool how they use magic. With their devices speaking english, and the magic circles that appear.

Hello Madoka,

Its been awhile. Wondering how you're doing. A lot has happened I'd guess since we last talked. 

I rewatched Angel Beats recently to reremember the great feelings I got from the show. I also heard its getting a visual novel this year. Its motivated me to want to watch more of the anime made by Key. Kanon is probably the next Key anime I'll watch would you recommend watching the 2002 version or the 2006 version 1st it looks like?

Hope everything's well. Even though its been awhile I'm still thinking about my friends on here.

Great Reviews!

Jul 25, 2013

I've read some of your reviews and enjoy them thus far.  According to your profile, you have not watched Sword Art Online. There is quite a controversy over that anime with people ranking it 0/10 and 10/10.  Wanted to know if you ever came across that anime and if you do, I look forward to reading your review about it. Thanks!
