about me

Hey guys and gals! In the past, I was a mathematics major, although I am currently taking a break from college. I enjoy anime, halo, reading, heavy metal, and ballroom dancing.

Although in the end, I believe every review and rating is subjective, I like to think a little bit before I rate most of the shows I've seen, and generally try to consider several different factors, although I don't have a set formula for doing so. I enjoy discussing different viewpoints about shows I've seen, with people I've met, since I think that most people have some constructive new perspectives to contribute to my thoughts about a show, whether their opinions are positive or negative.  

I am officially looking for new anime recommendations!  I need something fantastical, engrossing,preferably (although not necessarily) dark,  something I can become fully immersed in, something that makes me appreciate it both as a work of art and as an exercise in thought. Kara no Kyoukai left a big impression on me and, in terms of anime anyways, I haven't really moved past it since I saw it years ago. I've seen comedies, romances, dramas, and even some more fantasy/horror stuff since then, but none of it really left me satisfied. I have an ever growing list of shows that I want to watch, most of which seem mildly promising, but in the end I wonder how many more of them will be disappointments! Please, if you think you have something that I might enjoy, let me know!

Ive found two sites, the one with pictures is pretty interesting, i was actually tring to find THE picture ive got, that is screenshows between the series and similar scenes in movie, highlighting differences that might suggest it not being simply a remake

Whoops, forgot to talk about the Instrumentality stuff.

Have you seen the 2nd remake movie yet? It really gives off a feeling that it's "not just a retelling" because of various hints around the place.

The ones i can remember are:

The sea is blood red now, kind of like how at the end of End of Eva movie, the desolate world Shinji and Asuka are in is surrounded by a red sea.

The "angel" in the basement of NERV hq is different i think. I cant remember well, but i think in the series it was Lilith right? I think in the movie, Lilith's "corpse" is on the moon, while it's Adam that's in NERV hq. At least, design-wise, that's what they look like. I dont think they would swap the designs of them for no reason.

The angel dude (the one that was like a boy, forgot his name) says something at the end of the 2nd movie: "Shinji-kun... this time I will make you happy". What's he mean by "this time"?! And theres some other ones as well but i cant remember.

Try googling around there's lots of forums discussin it, though no one;s really sure what. But it's certainly a very interesting topic.

It depends on why you are going to school...It is kinda deep question you have to ask yourself,but some soul searching is good thing now and again.

Are you going because you are actually interested in what you studying or are you going because you want to make lots and lots of money in the end???

If you answered yes to the first one then I would pick English. With english you can teach, write, publish, or create. But realize that this path will not make you much money.

If you answered the yes to the second then you would want to do engineering, and will def want to go to graduate school to get the advanced degree. This path will yield higher pay out in the end but your class load will be really really heavy and will leave very little time for fun classes. 

Which path is right for you??? It totally depends on you. I chose my path after years of being lost in the sea of classes. I think I had 92 hours before I had an actual major. I wanted to work in medium that would allow me to be creative, artistic, and with people. I also knew what my strengths and weaknesses were.  So I studied Theater, Education, Journalism, and English. 

I also don't suggest following my educational career path. I spent 9 years in college. Which is an absurd amount of time.... I also don't suggest taking any ones advice when it comes to this decision. Because if it doesn't work out then that person is always going to be blamed for telling you what to do. Which is awful! In the end you will have decide what is best. :)

Heyhey ^.^

I lost my internet for the last 24 hours coz: (big rant follows:)

coz my internet company was gay and got some of their lines bought away by the big player in the market, so my area's net got real slow for hte last 3 months. So then we rang in like over 9000 times to sort it out, and yesterday they switched us over to a different network to get faster again. So i lost my net for 24 hours during the switchover. But now it's back and much better sometimes. Like before, i used to get about 300kbps on torrents. Then during the sad 3 months, i got only 200kbps if lucky. Now i "can" on some torrents, get up to 800-1000kbps at top speed. Really awesome. But some torrents are still going at 300kbps, which is good enough for me.

So yeah, that's why ive been off hte net for a day. It was REALLY scary to not have internet.... DX

 

Now, onto comments:

The season thing in japan works by dividing the year into 4 blocks, during which diff anime air. Most shows are "1 cour" which is 1 season, which is 12-13 episodes. So right now the stuff airing in Japan is the "Winter 2011" shows. The type of show isnt really influenced by the season, it's just when they happened to air.

Yeah i really like the gear and steam stuff in the Shakugan no Shana II op. That machinery imagery with the techno music was what really got to me.

Oooh! EvangelioN! And with your dad, lol i still find it awesome how he's into watching anime (detective stuff mostly though right?).

I've heard of those shows you recommended, and yeah, they all seem very good but alas there's SOOO much i want to watch, but a) i dont have enough data to download them b) im poor c) fucking uni d) im poor.     But regarding Gantz, it is just BADASS, or is there some "message" in there as well? Coz i heard it was mostly tits and blood and aliens getting sliced up. And there's that evil black ball robot thing. But is there some reason to explain all this death and carnage?

All things considered, it was a steal at $100 and works great and has great ratings. This is the one you want: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822186239 . It is reliable and has good looks.
