Hello. I'm Aurora. I've been into anime for about 9 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.

I recently started making youtube videos. These will mostly be video game and visual novel related videos on the PC. I can take certain types of requests to show playthroughs and battles, or special types of the above it will be up to me whether I carry through that request. It has to be within reason naturally, if it is I will try my best to do it when I can.

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. 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.


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.

11 Eyes 

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. 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:









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.

^_^ Hajimemashite.

I am not that great. My last couple recommendations did not turn out so great. As for if it's not on your list.. I think that mostly is up to you. It's easier for me when I can look through a want to watch list and see if there is something I have seen that is around the genres you like that you may be interested in. Since there are so many out there, ones that are not already in your list are difficult to choose and be close to what you may like. 

I don't know if that makes sense.

Before I had my huge want to watch list (Haha. ^_^) I used to go to the anime tab and click on the random anime that popped up if I didn't know what it was and the name/picture sounded interesting. Then I would read the description and it would be either added to my want to watch or I would try again because some day I will eventually watch it... just maybe not anytime soon.

Some Horror Anime: Ayakashi: Japanese Classice Horror, Aoi Bungaku Series,  Boogiepop Phantom, Ghost Hound, Kaidan Restaurant (is a light horror, for like kids.), Kurozuka, Mononoke, Requiem from the Darkness (Similar to Jigoku Shoujo), Pet Shop of Horrors. 

Bold (if it shows up bold), is what you might like better.. but in the end, you may hate all of them. So it won't hurt my feelings if you tell me so. ^_^ As for your other genres... hmmm.. that is somewhat difficult.. there are lots in the Fantasy genre.

Mystery... Apparenty, Wolf's Rain is mystery.

Detective Conan is a good one and I saw it's on your want to watch. I know it is still ongoing and it's REALLY long.. but yeah.

I liked Un-Go that aired this past season. It was interesting. ^_^

And.. that is as far as my mystery genre goes.. haha.

Anywho, yeah. I used to write lots of big replies as well. ^_^

I only have two classes. It's half online half on campus, but if individuals do not do their work on the online portion it makes it very difficult to do my part. Because the online part works just like an internet forum. You post your thread by the deadline specified by the teacher (usually 48 hours) and then you go and reply to other students threads by another specified deadline (usually 48 hours.) 

However, you get instances where you and one other person posted by the deadline.. and you have 2 hours left before the next deadline. I had already replied to the other student, but that left one reply left. Which learning wise, it isn't fair. Grade wise, it doesn't count against us if no one posted something for me to reply to and I had my initial post. 

So, just watching the "forum" so to speak, takes time because you try to make sure that there is something to write to and that you can understand it. If you can't understand it, you have to take the extra time to decipher it and then figure out how you are going to reply. 

So I take my dad's laptop to work with me and I check every now and then and during my free time (if I get any, which this week I didn't) I will work on my research papers or my essays.

I have fun at work every now and then. Haha. I have my days and it is rough. Especially with all these papers coming due and the discussion posts, I start to worry if I will have time. x.x 

OoOoOoOoOo nice. My weekends I have been using to write my research paper. Haha. Except.. I have to scratch it.. because I wrote it all wrong. Haha. And it's due next Thursday. x.x

Hope you have fun this weekend as well. I have to get ready to go to my other volunteer job now.

Hey! finally back on again

Completely on the same level with you about when an anime changes the manga creator's ideas. I believe the Elfen Lied anime differed quite a bit from the manga, but I haven't even finished that yet so I can't be one to judge.

How's the Haruhi manga? I've been wanting to get the show but can't find it anywhere, everyone seems to love it. heard the endless eight arc on the anime caused quite a controversy though

Laptop has been great! runs 1080p on youtube no lag, so i've nothing to complain about.

Been watching anything new?

Madoka says...

hehe as said before no worries, i never mind, i know longer messages can take more time to get round to sending as they of course take longer to write and think of replies and such :D                         

hehe dont get me started on one word replies, nothing is more iritating to me than typing lenghy stuff for a 'k' reply, it infuriates me, i mean ok i dont tell everyone but i make it obvious how much i dont like them, i just think 1 word replies are disreguarding all the effort we put into talking to them.                          

haha i do the same! i have my profile page open then the page of whom i am replying to so i can read then reply (think remembering all this would be hard ^^) and im the same i have like 30-50 tabs open all the time, even if i dont use them all its easier to access what i want if i will use them.

well when i confirm the person has the message (ie i get a reply) i delete the previous document, i dont always trust it just cus it says it posted the comment, wouldnt be a first time it says it did it but didnt. Wow 15GB for a 13 episode series o.o are they blu-ray rips or something? Commonly when i download stuff i look at 3GB for a full 24 episode series (sometimes it might be up to 5GB) but thats cause i use FLV and MKV over avi (avi are always massive and nothing much from them) but i know how it feels to not have space free, i used to be stuck at like 20 GB space, i eventually got a 1TB external though so im always good for space now ^^.

haha i like the idea of watch a episode and be quizzed on it ^^ i wouldnt expect a exam on characters or such... because it would mean you HAVE to watched it (lol would suck to force people to buy something they dont need) but i agree, and hey it could still be educational, you have to study and anaylse the episode you watch then your quizzed on how much attention you payed... i think its a great idea :D                                          

Ye i never seen to many anime movies, only watched the one from full metal alchemist and haruhi's... i think thats them all (might be another one or 2... depends if you count them 40-60min OVA one's). Shame i feel anime movies could be epic (better than the stuff we see in our countries ><)

Anime addict sounds like a complimant ^_^ im simular there, i have to update my list alot as i forget episode numbers fast, i sometimes will know its between 2 episodes (say i know its either 8 or 9) but it's a pain to go check the first one to find you seen it so i get kinda hooked on these sites.

lol i will be on the first flight to Otakutopia. As for Dating sims, i never tried a flash one so wouldnt know what there like, i like the full game ones as some go on with like 40-60 HOURS play time and never get boring, lots of events which are real gripping, i wish real life was more like them ¬__¬ be nice to walk into a school and meet like 4 random girl's who all seem to be awsome in one way or another and devlop a relationship with them by fun events and conversations (instead as you stated the reality of it where your lucky to find 1 half decent person ><). Dam games make me wish they was real.

For haruhi i suppose it depends how she responds to it, i mean surly she must relise things in her life seem to ironicly turn in her favor alot so it cant be all to supprising (though i guess we are talking 'god' status.) But a haruhi made world would be creepy, she belives in fun things which is cool but i imagine creepy over grown dinosaurs everywhere when i let her be in charge xD my weird way of thinking but it never leaves xD

The thing which bugs me most about haruhi 2009 is the box set, you have to buy it seperate from season 1 which means you can never put a disc in and watch through in order as to do that you would need to be changing discs every episode or 2 which would be a pain, and i agree it leaves you feeling a bit cheated, i mean i dont mind buying it but (not even a complete boxset sucks for one) the thing is though is as you said 8 episodes are endless eight, then 2 or 3 for filming so it cuts it short, not like i didnt mind the filming ones though, i guess i will get the haruhi finished though via books, i real all haruhi light novels as there real good (and you cant get cheated for easy ^^)

Ye with religion i just say i dont belive in them end off, if someone hates me for that then they clearly not worth having as a friend, any my friends which might have any slight belifes dont mind as i just say i dont belive and leave it at that, dont hurt anyone and leave them to it, my policy around it :) Politics are same, i just leave it all blank, say nothing much leave it as nothing much and no one can complain then :D

Well its possible both are correct, some words of japanese dont have a real english translation but have several meaning depending on where and how its used. Some words change meaning when used with other words and sometimes it just has several meanings, one simple example of this is how japanese use numbers, to say above 10 you say 10 (juu) which the other number following (juu ichi = 11) but some numbers cant be used in this way, i think 300 is one, (normally hundred is Hayaku, so it would be san hayaku, but you dont say that, some rule makes it become byaku, not sure if it is 300 but its one of them xD but the point is hayaku means other stuff from hundred in sentances and 'san' being a method of addressing it changes the word completly, japanese is kinda weird for that. As for its meaning, im not entirly sure but if you know its kangi or kana i could find out (ironicly enough i gots my japanese dictionary right besides me ^^ but it doesnt translate romaji to english, only kanji/kana to english and english to romanji/kanji/kana)

So are the psychology classes fun? o.o see these are the stuff we never got taught to much in, normally its just thrown into one class or another and thats it. I like to just do what ever MR/Miss 'leader' tells me to if it means not dealing with the grouped stuff ^^

ye i find typing is nicer there. Speaking something to someone you dont know and probberly never will know isnt always to bad but it still feels uncomfertable and can be embarrasing, typing if you make a mistake and someone resents you for it then Mr blanky blank doesnt matter you can hit 'block' or something and never deal with them again :D i love the internet, the advancement of socialising there (kinda weird sounding but ohwell).

Ai teachers make no sense to me, i see it unless there in our shoes who are they to say what will help us build confidense? teachers think they know everything >< it's as you said, you need good friends to get anywhere with confidence.

The simple side to it is its them people who make us need Hell Girl in this world, she'd give em trouble :D and show them what there worth. Ai but hey killing them over in your head is fun hehe, i used to enjoy thinking painful methods for them to die in, like slowly shreading there skin away using one them sand belters and then pouring salt into there open flesh as a machine slowly streches there legs and arms till they snap... ye i probberly taken it to far, but thats how i used to work, i had alot of fun though as i would just randomly laugh when thinking of it and people thought i went insane (ahem maybe i had issues xD)

i totally agree! Bullying should be a crime, in my eyes it is one anyways but i agree, why are people arrested for self defence? its not fair... i known some people been inprissoned when some drunk came into there house waving a gun round and cause they hit the drunk with a bat over the head to protect there kid's they got in trouble, why is that fair? :(

Ye its good to see it brightly about ELF on that one, you got some good stuff from it so its not to bad to leave. Unfortunatly for Pico i doubt he will have a new generation on its way though, anime specfic forums (about one anime alone) arn't ever the most popular or better wording, they die quickly so they depend on some loyal active users and people to spread the word, well he lost his loyal members by showing them what he thinks of them and so he's down one big one already, chance of refferals is slim hense loosing you guys so its kinda in the gutter for him, yes its not 1 anime specfic now but you cant just change the name on something to make it right, he needs people to join, if everyone is leaving its doubtfull many will join and there will probberly sadly come the end to what WAS a good site.

Ye PM would be nice, as you said its not to bad here so speaking publicly is cool 2, but there's always some private stuff you dont want everyone knowing, i actually just forget its private alot, i assume no one else will read my essay comments anyways :D it is nice here how not everything as you said needs sugar coating, ok some bits and bobs will but in generall your free to speak freely here :D

haha for the top six thing i know what you mean about decreasing the meaning, i just find it hard to move clannad afterstory of but if i do i know i will end up not wanting to hit kanon off and so on, its a shame to abuse the top 5 style one but 6 is only one more... and its better than 10 xD
