Hello. I'm Aurora. I've been into anime for about 10 years. My 1st anime was pokemon but my "starter" anime I consider to be Naruto as that has gotten me into all animes. 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. This list will continue to change as I watch more anime, or my feelings toward anime I've watched before change as well as gain new perspectives.

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.

2. Elfen Lied- I enjoy the themes of Nature vs. Nurture that this Anime presents, and it really does a great job with showing the absolute worst that humans are capable of as well as the absolute best. The abilities of the Diclonius are also interesting.

Elfen Lied 

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.

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.

5. Yona of the Dawn- Will update with description soon.

Akatsuki No Yona

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

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 

Shion-Sama

Light

Lieselotte-Sama 

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.

Oh yeah, I've heard of Deadman Wonderland but I actually knew nothing about it lol. So there are lots of similarities with Mirai Nikki, then I should probably give it a look. I know one thing for sure though, the opening theme for Mirai Nikki is way better than the Deadman Wonderland opening in my opinion. (I randomly listen to anime songs on youtube from time to time and that song showe up a few times lol)

Inuyasha was definately a long anime. 167 episodes + the 26 for the final act and then the 4 movies. I know I've seen at least the first 3 movies but I honestly dont remember the 4th one. Elfen Lied....I had no idea what I was getting into when I started that show. I remember though I came home from school one night and watched the first episode and then I couldnt stop watching. Thats one of the few things that I've ever managed to watch in 1 day. I also think I stayed up way later than I wanted to because I had like 2 more episodes to watch or something lol :P  Just a great show (hmmmmm I love how I can refer to a show where limbs literally fly off as being great tehehe....although the kids beating up the dog when Lucy was a kid was depressing)

Haha its alright to not respond right away. I love your comment about being too addicted to an anime/game to talk to people :P thats awesome lol. I can tell you put a lot of thoughts into your responses, always nice to see what someone else who loves anime thinks. Lol....yeah I ussually respond pretty fast, although this week its been a bit faster than normal as its my spring break. Yippie for not having school for a week!! YAY!! lol....so I've been around without much to care about...so I sat around and took it easy...now I feel lazy....sadly school comes back with a vengance on Monday...right back into midterms and assignments...sigh :P Oh well....I guess having work to do will make the next episode of Mirai Nikki that much more enjoyable :D

Hmmmmm You started watching anime at 13. That sounds about right. I think I started watching Inuyasha back in grade 7 when I was 12/13ish. Other than that most the stuff I've watched has been in the last 3 years or so. Sometimes it scares me how much I can watch if I get on a role without noticing it lol.

Regretably I havent seen a lot in the same genre as Mirai Nikki. After watching it though I'm definately going to want to find something similar though thats for sure.

Yuki's personality change....yeah. At first I was completely thrown off by it im like WOAHHHHHH wait a second, who the heck is this guy???? (even though he was completely awesome but thats definately not how he'd usually be described) Then there was a scene with him and Yuno alone where he was all like "Did I do good, Did i do good??" kinda attitude. So really I dont think he changed that much. It seems now without his parents he is looking to Yuno (the one he can rely on for protection) to guide him and help him through. Most likely he is gonna have a nervous breakdown...but I kinda hope its one of the absolute psychotic kinda and not the this is just depressing kind if you know what I mean :P with this show more crazy=better hahaha :)

haha....now I feel crazy it took me like 4 attempts to enter in the right code at the bottom to send this reply :P

Sorry if I spam anyone's activity feeds with re-ratings. I'm just going through my lists and reevaluating how and what I really thought of each anime since I feel I've been too generous with ratings in the past. Less emotional bias. etc.

Ya that clifhanger is ridiculous....I`m actually trying so hard to refrain myself from reading the manga. I dont want to spoil the anime cuz im enjoying it episode by episode everyweek :O Your right! Today I was like oh hey thre Minene.....where did that chipmunk come from lol??? She is actually my favourite character without a doubt XD

Abnormal is weird/not normal, so it made me laugh..now i just wanna know who the heck is this crazy pink haired girl we've come to know O.o but hmmmmm random misc. anime to hold you over...that sounds about right. I should probably check out your anime list. You've got some ones on there I've never heard of, could be interesting :)
