Hey there. I'm Aurora. I've been into anime for about 8 years. My 1st anime was pokemon but my "starter" anime I consider to be Naruto as that has gotten me into all animes. and yea. Some may consider me quiet. But I can still talk with anyone as long as they're nice and respectful.

If you want to know more about me feel free to ask. I'll probally want to know more about you in exchange. I'll tell you simple things, but I will never say anything too personal like my "real name" even if you tell me yours so do not ask please.

Typically I don't have a particular favorite genre. Generally they involve an element of fantasy and psychological part. As long as the anime can hold my interest and allow me to connect with at least 1 of the main characters, I can watch almost any anime.

Here are some of my top favorite animes of all time. Keep in mind I love many animes and the ones I mention here are only around 5% of all the anime I love lol. Its just impossible to mention all of them in this profile description. It would also get boring for you to read possibly.

1. Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni- I basically watched this anime right after Elfen Lied since I've heard people compare this to Elfen Lied. It starts out innocent and cute and quickly gets creepy and brutal. You wouldn't believe this to be a horror anime from watching the 1st 2 episodes! This show also has a lot of characters I like which is important. Beyond the betrayal and paranoia present in this show, it holds great themes such as friendship and overcoming fate. And presents a mystery. It is mostly a debate between whether Oyashiro-sama's curse is actually a curse or caused by humans who want us to think it's Oyashiro-sama's curse. A similar theme is present in the sister series Umineko which is also just as good as Higurashi.

Higurashi 

Higurashi

2. Brynhildr in the Darkness- Seeing as this was done by the creator of Elfen Lied, I had to see this. It is a sister of Elfen Lied with the same relationship as with Higurashi and Umineko. However the characters really stick out at you strongly, even more so than Elfen Lied. And they make you want to see them survive and life the "normal" life they couldn't live before. The Protagonist Ryouta is great. He has an ability called Photographic Memory which I refer to as Perfect Memory and has been haunted because he believes he caused his childhood friend's death. And he is unable to forget it and has avoided further relationships. This changes when a character who looks similar to his childhood friend appears, and it turns out she is a fugitive from an organization because she is a Witch with special powers. More of these witches eventually come in and Ryouta wants to help them survive against this organization and find out if aliens exist. It is painful to see the characters go through pain and near death experiences and you will want to see them survive regardless of the odds of certain torture and death.

Brynhildr

3. 11 Eyes- Got to say I really enjoyed this anime. It was one of those rare ones where there wasn't a single main/secondary character I disliked. Allow me to rant about its good points. Characters are taken to an parallel dimension (which is always a fun thing) and they fight Larves and a group called the Black Knights. They don't know why they are fighting. There is also a girl imprisioned in a crystal named Lisette. Without spoiling too much I will say she is my main favorite character from this show and one of my most favored characters of all time in anime on the par with Lucy (Elfen Lied), Light Yagami, and Shion Sonozaki. You will find out why if you've seen/ plan to watch this show. Also with Yuka in this show I love her too! She recieves a lot of dislike but she is still a great character. I can understand her actions at many points. (I also have a thing for Yandere action (Gasai Yuno!)) Another thing is is brilliant music. Lots of organ epicness which make this show 100x better than it already is.

4. Psycho Pass- This anime is true art. It is a sci-fi that takes place in a 1984 similar type of world. A person's potential to commit crime can be quantified and visualized. Even just thinking about a crime is enough to get you branded a latent criminal for the rest of your life. This is Japan ruled by the Sibyl System. The protagonist Akane Tsunemori is a new inspector who's job it is to track down criminals. With her are enforcers, who are latent criminals themselves, and track down other criminals while being watched by the inspectors. Their guns are sentient, they will only work if a target's crime coefficient is high enough. Opposing the Sibyl System is antagonist Shogo Makishima who seeks to bring people's free wills back. This is sort of a law vs chaos type of anime written by Gen Urobuchi (same person who wrote Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, another great anime). The next generation Death Note. And has you decide which is the better of the 2 trying to make the world better. It is perfection, or as close to perfection as one can get.

Psycho Pass

5. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica- Watching this show 2 times I've almost forgotten how awesome this show is. This is not your typical Sailor Moon Magical Superhero show. It is more like Higurashi combined with Claymore dealing with Magical girls. Similar to Higurashi in how it starts out somehow innocent but by episode 3 it takes a turn for the very dark horror that's familiar with shows like Higurashi and Shadow Star. It takes the concept of Magical Girl and twists it into a very horrifying story. It's perfecto! It goes without saying Homura is my favorite character from here (won't say why thou) Without spoiling too much (if I can help it) If you've seen Claymore you know how the female warriors who fight Yoma(demons) turn into Yoma themselves someday? Something similar happens here. Thou I may've said too much. Either way you have to watch it if you haven't seen it already. Aurora Commands you to!!

Some others worth mentioning are:

Naruto- Not the 1st anime I watched but it was the anime that got me into anime

Angel Beats- This anime was awesome for being unique and set in a world after death where people can imagine and summon weapons and fight without worrying about death. The character of Tenshi is also facinating, you'll love her if you watch the show.

Inuyasha- A very good anime. It has about something for everyone. 2 Tsunderes who have a relationship that builds throughout the show. And the protagonists and the other groups of anti-heroes are bound by the hatred of a common enemy. Naraku, a hanyo just like Inuyasha. It is the best 100+ ep anime out there with minimal filler. 

Death Note- 3rd anime I think. It showed me there was more to anime than just the typical Shounen plot/fights. There's the awesome Mental/psychological battles. A key thing is that I personally agree with Light's ideals he worked hard to make the world a better place. That's not something that can be considered "evil" as some think of him. Clearly because of this I hated the ending and hated the 2nd season as a whole. The show didn't feel the same after the 1st season.

Mirai Nikki A survival game with the main tool being a Diary (cell phone/scroll) that can see into the future. It is similar to Fate/SN and The Hunger Games with the survival game aspect. Thou what really makes it interesting are the characters of Yuno Gasai and Minene Uryu. They bring awesome qualities to the show and are fun characters to watch.

Code Geass- Like Death Note but a little more physical action lol. Can't help but wonder if I got my insane obsession with eyes and psychology from this anime? O_O

D. Gray Man- I have respect for this anime even though its shounen it shows deeper meaning and emotions than typical Shounen animes. Allen Walker is fun to watch. Also has a pretty kick ass villian. Who has an interesting personality.

3x3 Eyes- Normally this anime would be on my top 5. Even above Elfen Lied if I see the whole series. Thou the manga series I found out is about 40 volumes long and the anime ova only covers an 1/8th of that. While the Elfen Lied Anime at least covered 1/2th of the manga. It is a very interesting series from what I've seen so far and thought I should mention it. I even heard it inspired part of Elfen Lied which would automatically ensure a place on my top 5.

Jigoku Shoujo- Similar to Death Note dealing in a dark atmopshere. Every episode seeing Enma Ai-san take requests to send people to hell is interesting, especially since 90% of the time the recipiants of the curse are total bastards which makes it even more satisfying. It also has a very great Soundtrack.

Some anime characters I really love:

Lucy

Lucy-Sama

Shion

Light

Liselotte

I'm afraid I have to put up a collection of Yuki-Onna pictures They're my favorite type of Youkai so you know. I must!

 Yuki Onna

There are manyy other characters I love as well. These are the main ones which have sparked special moments in their animes And hold a special place of respect for Aurora.

I also read visual novels, I don't have a very big collection right now, but I forsee my collection growing in the future. My favorites for now include:

Yumina the Ethereal- This is the main 1st visual novel I've bought. It has a fantastic and unique story with memorable characters, it also has some rpg elements that make it even more interesting. There isn't really a genre you can classify this story in as it seems to be one of those that have a little of everything.

Saya No Uta/Song of Saya- Being a fan of Madoka Magica, Psycho-Pass, and Fate/Zero, it follows that a visual novel I would have to have would come from the writer of the series mentioned above. Gen Urobuchi! It was a great story of course and similar to Umineko, it really messed with my head planting questions such as "what is reality". While it is difficult to make sense of these questions, they are interesting to think about.

Video Games are another hobby of mine. I can't count how many I've played though the series that have stood out most to me throughout my life include:

Metroid Series- Pretty much my 1st official video game series I really started playing it deserves a mention. I've played video games before with my friends but from 1st owning a Gameboy Advance I've been hooked to the Metroid series for forever basically. I love pretty much all the games before Other M. With Metroid Prime 2: Echoes being my favorite. Super Metroid/Metroid Prime also coming close. I would consider Metroid to be the best creation of Nintendo for having incredible gameplay (in both 3rd& 1st person) interesting aliens, along with a great overall story that slowly pans out. 3 great things that make for a great game.

Shin Megami Tensei series- by chance I discovered this game at a local gamestore, for only $20 this proved to be one of the best game purchases I ever made. I played SMT: Devil Survivor seeing as RPGs are awesome this one was a classic awesome rpg. I think it to be better than pokemon or any other rpg I've played before. To call it my favorite RPG would be an understatement. You get to control and fight demons YES!! DEMONS!! and choose different routes. The ending and enemies change depending on which path you take which is normally either a Law (totalitarian) or Chaos (Anarchy) path. 2 extremes. There is Neutral as well, but being in the middle of things may not suit me as much. My type of game. Thanks to a facination with demons and rpgs. I've gotten other games in the series such as Strange Journey and Devil Survivor 2. Plan to get more in the future. All the games in this series I've played so far have proven to be quite difficult of course being very fun as well. had the 3 games for several months and I've only beaten Devil Survivor so far. Close to beating Strange Journey but wow its difficult. On the final boss now but can't beat it due to being severely underleveled and not having good enough moves to counter the 1 hit kos the boss throws at you.

Hehe no worries, trust me i know how busy it gets around these times. It is quite amazing how far through the year we are now though, i mean it's October... though even that doesn't feel right as right now as of writing this reply it's the 21st, meaning we are creeping on november. Time really does fly.

Yeah i brought Planetarium as well, couldn't resist it. I have actually played it before though but i brought it more for supporting the western release of visual novels in general. It's still a great game, though do take to mind this was keys first ever visual novel project so don't be too judgemental in comparisons to later things like Rewrite, Little busters or Clannad xD On that note i think Clannad is now licensed as well. Just waiting on Kanon and Air and the old guys are done, then it's just Little busters and Rewrite to go (own JP versions of little busters and rewrite, and Rewrite harvest festa... i loved it THAT much, it is my favourite game after all ^.^... very expensive for them all though).

Well one benefit of waiting on games like Aselia was, unless you played the JP version or fan sub, you never releasied how great it was so the wait wasn't as painful as say awaiting a certain game from the same series/franchise xD But yeah i think JAST are due a update, i think i said before but im sure it can't be THAT much work to have someone check some of their works in progress, upcoming titles and other titles they have stuff happening with, make a small report on them with some comments and throw it out there, would do wonders for some people *ahem*

I think i mentioned it last time but anyway that fan sub who work with JAST so have Seinarukana at 100% finished so im hoping it might be one of them titles which will "slip out" with JAST some time soon, they must have gone all out though as only a few months ago it was still only being worked on, i know it was said they was making fast work but heck im not complaining, i just want to buy it asap xD

Congratz on getting through Sargios :) Yeah sounds right though, very tough to survive, Sword IV/V always is hard to have people able to take it and live, and honestly even when they live they commonly have little HP to the point you question if they will live another turn from anything. Suppose in a respect that does make Blue spirits hardest to fend against which is odd considering Reds usually are the problem, through if i remember well one doesn't trust a red and kills them asap anyway. I agree though, super hard will be too hard, when i played it i failed a lot and ended playing hard more to grind some levels, just instead i focused heavily on leveling only a handful of spirits (the ones i plan to lead or more accurately "survive" super hard). This way made it possible to progress in super hard mode and level the stragglers quickly on the way, only down side here is, your teams rely heavily on them set players. But yeah they are either way very over powered on Super hard, honestly it will takes weeks of playing to get it down. i played hard several times for the level grind and then spent a mass of time loading in super hard due to having to think of better stratergies and plans of movement (some parts took hours to eliminate a few sets of spirits).

Glad if the screen shots was in any way helpful :) Yes Tokimi is one i forget to mention a lot, with her being more end game and as you mentioned quite pricey but of course she does come wielding decent power, i guess it is supposed to represent her position in the story, as really she hardly strikes you as someone who would be easy to kill xD I can't actually remember her specialities too well if im honest but i know for sure she was strong and worth using.I just loaded my data and her lv86 stats are, Attack 500%, Defence 469%, Resist 389 - considering this she is heavily balanced but in large ways. Looking at the mains stats otherwise they usually are strong in one stat, average in another and poor in the final so she plays out quite well.

Yeah i was curious of the other girl with Vivio a lot, i see lots of pictures of them together so i can't wait to learn who she is. I am also very excited for the series, though i imagine some of the cast will not be as big (i don't see it casting Nanoha and Fate aside of course considering they are the iconic characters that built the great series) but with is following Vivio i find it will likely focus more on "her crowd" if you follow. Anyway needless to say im very curious for the series, partly as yourself to see how things went with Nanoha and Vivio in raising and just general communication between them but also i will just be happy to see another great series for a great anime return. I always was a great fan of the series and really love Nanoha/fate which is always a great thing (main characters creating a great impression helps enjoy the show that much more).Either way my hopes for this one are high :D

Oh, you watching Psycho-Pass 2 yet? i just done the second episode (rather wait and be a episode behind whilst using good subs). Anyway i admit i wasn't all to impressed with the first episode, it didn't really get into it or anything but the second was great, really enjoyed it and got right back that feeling the series had going for it with the first, looking good thus far. I have high hopes that's for sure.

Your right on this seasons anime though, i am watching a lot more than i normally do, honestly there is 4 or 6 series every day, it might not sound much to some but trying to fit that in isn't easy, especially if i want to play a new game or something as well. Not sure why i ended up watching so many if im honest, none really jumped out at me as being great by descriptions but yet im watching loads and honestly most have been quite enjoyable thus far.

Haha i know the feeling with money, try to tell yourself not to buy for x period of time and you still can't resist (doesn't help with so many good sales)either way though know your not alone here, i keep buying new anime and then find i don't have money for a game i want or whatever (tears to tiara 2 comes out soon, i must have it!). I keep saying to myself "don't buy anything this month so we can save" and i still end up spending on a handful of new anime.

I suppose it's one thing i missed about school/college, it had a bit more time for anime, i mean we all can make time i guess (i do have a few hours before im tired) but i find i always need another 2 or 3 hours xD The sad reality of the world i guess, work = time but sadly is something we need as well (not want :D).

Been looking into trips to Japan recently actually (my constant spending doesn't help here), it's a shame as it's so expensive to travel there from over here (a lot cheaper from where you are ^.^) but i still want to go. Not sure when though, probably not next year but the year after. But then there is time of year, Summer is of course the most expensive but the best for weather (and longer daylight so more time outside exploring the culture) whilst of course Autumn/Winter get cheaper but it's freezing but there are some neat festivals and im a big fan of how they light up streets a lot with decorations and such come end year (November/December). The choices .__.

Anyway, sorry for the late reply, i said i wouldn't be here for the week, and this week has been rather busy so been having troubles but got some time now ^.^

Also wanted to say, I was thinking of series I could possibly recommend, and you might really enjoy Aldnoah Zero! It's mecha, and I haven't really seen any other mechas, but it's really well-done and though they're all over, the plot really focuses on the story more and it's pretty absorbing. As it amps up it gets better, and there's a season two coming out next year so yeah! haha

Yeah, the whole gang from the opening are here now. Hmm, well I actually like the group as whole quite a bit. I think they're pretty well conveyed. Kana's pretty funny and compliments everyone well and doesn't appear pitiful if you know what i mean. She's actually pretty strongly done and isn't really a hindrance, though you expect someone in her situation to be in an anime. Kotori and Kuroha are distinctive in their own ways, and I really like Ryouta too, he's actually unique for a main male character(well he comes off that way at least). He's not a stereotypical wimp, nor the stereotypical "characterless hero" type either! But my favourite is definitely Kazumi. Even if she is a super-tease, she's pretty clever and I really like the way she talks, it's fits her character+ability well.

Brynhildr does seem to swap between silly nature and serious quite a lot, but I like it's style. It fits after a few episodes, and even if it's not as strictly seperated and as impactful as Elfen Lied is on the majority, all the twists and turns and nasty turn turn the shock value up to make up for it. The enemy harnest girls don't seem as much a threat as new Elfen Lied girls were, but everything else about the series I really like. Since the two are by the same author I've been comparing them a lot haha.. Oh I finished Elfen Lied too, last week! It was soooo good.

aahh seriously these are all out there? Forgive me if you've sent me help or anything before, but do you have links you could suggest? I'm pretty hopeless at finding these things by myself.

I know just what you mean! Two years in and I don't have too much of a clue looking into the future, so I suppose I'll take things as they come. And yes lifeguarding is pretty much exactly as you imagined! Thanks, I hope so too :)

Till next time! I have a lot of comments to reply to that I keep forgetting about hahahah

Hiya, sorry i wont be able to reply to your message for just over a week as i will be away and not have internet, so just thought i would let you know before hand ^.^ Will reply as soon as i return though. Oh just one thing quick,Seinarukana has been marked 100% by the fansub group who provide to JAST, not sure if it's just a typo or not but noticed when i checked it's all marked as done so maybe in the next few months something might be more official. anyway i will go into details on that next week with my main reply, seeya then and have a good week ^.^
