Hello Fellow Earth User... or whatever planet you might be from (being on that subject, Neptune is a pretty cool planet, right?)

The Name is Madoka... well at least on this site, you can use my real name if you prefer (i wont post it here though because I'm a tease o.o... clearly), believe it or not, i love anime! Seriously though, i enjoy most genre, my favourite are quite large but vary from Slice of life, School life, Comedy and mystery. Mystery or detective type genre are great, i love the mix from casual to serious, i also love how the two blend, take Gosick, it starts quite casual, whilst the cases can be serious the tone the series takes is laid back but it quickly whips into an amazing series... It's not like i am forcing you to watch it or anything! As said, i love most genre, so just because it isn't a favourite doesn't mean i wont love it, heck some of my overall favourite series aren't always amoungst them genre, i am happy watching most stuff.

Character wise, i have unique tastes (apprently), I can be picky on characters, whilst i like more than dislike, i still find a bad character can and will ruin a Great series. My favourite characters usually are either the lets say spirtful type (not as in a spirit!) or in other words the energetic and playful type, apprently these aren't so popular but i love them, ever watched Little Busters!? Well if so, im talking about Haruka type characters (Neptune from Neptunia, Yui from angel beats ect). Otherwise, i like a lot, i wont deny i usually like cute loli characters just because they are adorable, yes my next one was i like cute characters :D Essentially if they aren't annoying or really plain, i will like them, some i even love just because their hair (i love pink and blue hair colours :D).

I am big on the forum here at AP, whilst i have been away for a month i like to discuss airing shows there so if you use the forum feel free to say hi sometime.

My favourite series overall is probably Yuru Yuri but let me be honest, there are so many contenders it is impossible to choose, so i will give it YY just because i love it and it's rewatch value is great but know i have many favourite like Nagi no Asukara, Gargantia, Gosick ect.

Well thanks for reading this pointless intorduction to me, in other news, I'm a random person who talks about anything from your favourite series to how much cold water makes me cold to how bad my foot itches right now *scratches*, but if you prefer i can be normal (somehow) as well. I live in the UK (England to be precise) so yes, im a British person *SHOCK*. Aside from anime, i love Japanese Culture and music, I'm huge on Japanese history and whilst not the best on knowledge questions i just love hearing about history and folke tales from Japan, my favourite JP music artist/band is Nano.Ripe (some will know them for doing OP/ED's for series like Hanasaku Iroha (another of my favourites) and Non non Biyori).


I will update with images sometime soon D:

One more thing, i am a huge sucker for a sad ending, now i could list of some sad series here and now but i can't do that as i don't want to throw spoilers your way (yes i know it's not a spoiler to say a series endings sad but it does give insight), now sad is vague, i like sad from lonliness to heartbreak to death of a character we grow attached to and also though it seems odd but even just to seeing a good series end like say GJ-bu were half a group graduate whilst splitting them from their club members, yes i know it's not sad but i think it a sad scenario as it is a upsetting thing to split friendships like that (it must be done right though, a normal graduation and all ends doesn't cut it). So yeah i like sad stuff!!! I-it's not like i'm a sad or lonely misserable person... i just think a series has more 'feeling' put into it and it helps us connect better, i like feeling them emotions flow okay! It's hard to explain .__.

Previous Avatars

If you are like me, you love something new, this applies to our profile pictures, i find myself change mine and then want another new one 3 days later, not because i dislike my current but because i found another great one. I feel bad sometimes dropping a cute/sad/funny ect image so quick so i decided from now (December 2014) i will log all my previously used pics here, so they are never lost in time. Sadly i can't revive many of my older ones before hand because i just don't have them anymore. Anyway so here are the pics from now onwards.

Kyaaa~ Penguin-sama I didn't think you noticed my lack of replying... (I was trying to be sneaking...) TT^TT I'm sorry!! Y-you were heartbroken? I guess it can't be helped, you probably missed me so much it was hard to enjoy your holiday!... speaking of... you were having fun on holidays while I've been hanging on to dear life with a few grotesque coughs and sneezes... it's not like I care what you do in your free time but... this is a little unfair :'( (you never told me more of these eggs on lolipops)

ahahaha a restraining order from school? I wish! My parents are making me go because you can only miss 5 classes a semester and if you miss over you fail on attendance... unless of course you catch up and I missed so many classes everyone thinks it's going to take me a billion trillion years to catch up (when in my own reality I'll just use magic to hypnotise everyone into thinking I have been there the entire time and make them think I got A's on all assignments >:D ) Of course you're already in my will! You will be recieving all of my anime DVDs and manga, however I would like to be burried with my plushies so I can take them to magical girl heaven (or hell which ever I end up in)

What is this 'real life' you speak of? I'm not so sure I understand what exactly you mean... and busy? You mean, you're a real life human being doing real life human being stuff.... this whole time I really thought you were a penguin!!!! You are so amazing, replying so suddenly I was so confused when I saw your reply I thought maybe I sent my message to the wrong person, but there is no mistaking your kind of comment ^_^

You are incredible at turning even the shortest messages into the longest messages. I could just write one word and you could write an essay on it (especially if the word was moo, I'm sure that'd be easy for you!)

A-anyway, I'm glad you're alive and not a zombie... not that I really care what you do with your life (please don't become a zombie!!!!!! TT^TT)

Okay I never did come back to reply did I?

Update of my life: I'm practically dying, you're probably off mooing all the time and I've been sick for the past 4 weeks and I've had to attend school in some of my sickest moments... just to let you know I'll probably never end up replying to that message because I'm still sad about it being deleted. TT^TT

I get the feeling you haven't been on in a while, it's not like I'm missing you I'm just wondering where you are and if you're even alive... which I'm hoping is a "Yes, I am alive" because otherwise I'll be quite sad... alrighty, just let me know when you're brought back from the dead/ out of jail/ out of your coma/ away from your kidnapper/ (other?)

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.
