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. 

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. 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!!

Madoka 

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.

Alright great! Downloaded Rusty Hearts now. What time do you normally play at? It'll have to be a set time since you're from the US and I'm from Ireland =/

As for Anime Bytes, it's a private tracker. They're currently taking applications and it should be very easy to fill out for anyone who watches anime :)

It doesn't have a great list feature so most people just link to Anime-Planet or MAL. It's great for downloading anime imo, it's got a lot uploaded like anime series, manga, artbooks and visual novels. I use it to get most of my stuff ^_^

The community there is also nice imo, I spend a lot of time talking in IRC and in the general chit-chat thread.

haha no worries i know long replies can take some time ^^ i spent over a hour on some before xD i never mind ^^

Ye words a life saver as it never will allow to loose work, (even if word crashed it auto saves it) but sometimes i write part a reply if i got say 15mins free then save it and go back to it another day, so its quite handy for these replies :D i also sypaphise with her loosing alot it a pain, i know how it feels forgetting half you write and its just draining to even try re writing it, poor sensei. i hate when a game sever goes down, not for maintanence but some bug or something, thats annoying xD

haha gaming with a teacher is something i wouldnt mind trying :D i never really socialy interacted much with teachers so would be interesting to know if its even possible.

im the same, im really focused on updating anime lists, even if it means leaving comments for the next day, i have a thing i just have to update the lists. (i think im a AP addict lol)

omg i love that name "Otakutopia" its awsome!!! i agree let konata rule earth and change its name to Otakutopia :D I imagine the world will be well fun and people will be better off. The world would probberly become something outa one her dating sim games xD i wouldnt mind, japanese visual novel dating sim's are actually fun (i thought that dating sims would be crap and for loosers but there real fun) so i could live with her changes :D

ye i heard about the Teen Titans thing and was thinking wth is going on there. Sounds like its going from anime to anything and judging what you and striker said the admins are pure overloads, throwing weight around, sad to see this happened but i dont blame you if thats there attitude. ohwell on the bright side it will give you some more time, even if its just a extra 20-30mins for a anime episode or something :D

haha sorry if you didnt want a fast reply like this, its actually 3am (coming on 4) but i saw i had some new comments so figured i'd send replies before bed, good night and hope you enjoy school tomorrow (well suppose thats impossible but you know what i mean ^^)

Ah well I'll miss seeing you on the site and I'm sure other people will as well :(

In the end, I think I'll leave as well. Most of the friends I've made on the site have left, or are becoming people I'd rather not talk to anymore =\. If there's one good thing I think I've gotten from ELF though it's that I've met some great people there, so hopefully I'll be able to stay in contact with them via Skype, Facebook or here.

I guess that's why I was also referring everyone to Animebytes as well... I spend a lot of time there and it'd be great if I could get everyone in.

Now, on a less serious note, do you still play Rusty Hearts? I think I might start a character on the American servers so I could play with you and maybe bring a couple of friends as well :)

(Typing on the iPhone is a pain in the ass xD)

I know what you mean, adding Avatar was bad enough, but now Teen Titans is just ridiculous. I honestly don't care if Pico likes it or whatever. If that was justification to add it to an anime site, I may as well add Stargate SG-1.

Also, Pico's reaction to Commi was definitely ridiculous. Completely uncalled to reply like that. It feels like they don't value their own members at all. Members who offered opinions which were contradictory to that of Kira's and Pico's were simply insulted and told to get lost >.>

Hell, even as a moderator my word felt worthless. My duty wasn't to moderate, or help the site, it was to shut up and agree with anything upper staff said. No matter how detrimental it was to the website and the community.

I don't even want my mod status back at this rate. The only reason I've been staying for the last few weeks is because of the community, the great thing ELF/NYA has. And the thing Kira and Pico are slowly killing. It's frustrating seeing this happen slowly =/

ye i try to keep replies within a week, i think i managed this in about 5 days which is kinda late for me but as i said last night i was kinda busy so my appologies there                          

and lol very good choosen clip for the idea xD i was wondering when i saw a youtube link what part of lucky star it was then it hit me xD i hate it when things like that happen, and you loose a uber long reply, i write alot of replies in word now and then paste em in, only problem is for some reason it doesnt always insert the line space in anime planet so i have to revise my reply adding the paragraphs again                             

 haha i will give heads up, never pay attention to if it says im online ^^ it will say im online all day every day (cept when im in bed) as i have firefox load all my last open tabs (which is like 30 lol) when i start it up, and anime planet is one of then... and i never log out so whilst ever my computer is on it says im online, doesnt mean im here as i leave my computer on most days doing something or another, just a heads up as i know some have questioned me on it before :P but don't worry i always get back to people ;) Good to know though now your ok with replies and such, i used to get a bit annoyed thinking people was being rude blanking me and what not but i came to see alot are howi am now, a little occupied and need some time xD alot do log in just to update there watching list and such and leave comments till later, i dont mind that either :D                              

Nah our equilvalent to that AP thingy would probberly be HE in colleges, the uncreative intials for "higher education" (seeming college its self is higher education its dumb) but basically it lets you take university courses in college. And i know, how amazing would it be if for your final year exam things you had a paper which was just all about the anime world and anime of the such, i think by the time limit you will have 50 pages front and back covered with a perfect score sitting in your lap xD                    

Ye keep anime reviews you new watched or favorites, i could review alot of my favorites listed bt truth is no matter how much i love em unless im willing to rewatch it just for a review it will never be top notch. Im thinking of reviewing strike witches though ^^                    

lol konata as a god xD the image doesnt work, it would be epic... though i imagine she'd never get work done xD ... ... .. The new god of the world: Click Me to See GOD LOL epic xD i would love a otaku like god though o.o imagine what doors would open up to us.                        

 lol i know ;) it says it in the books and on the anime when its op is finishing, actually im registered on haruhism's website lol to be fair she is technically a god, just doesnt know it is all ^^                         

I watch the series mixed, the 2009 make of haruhi was the additional episodes claimed to be 'season 2' but basically they just slide in, so i just have them in order, ye the endless 8 is a pain, everyone says its terrible and all, i wont deny it got annoying to see the same things 8 times over but some episodes was enjoyable in it, i did sympathise with nagato though, reliving a summer over 15 thousand times... ouch, must have been terrible.                                 

well i dunno how they see it works, i mean most western countries follow when you die you go to heaven or hell... personally i dont belive in such things but im happy with others doing so as it helps live by good standards (i just dont like it stops you living freely as it forces rules on you). But the ting with reincarnation... i dunno if there are rules that you could be horrible and get a good life next or be good and get it bad but i dont think they ever elaberate does it apply outside homeland, so if i die would i be able to be born in france, germany, america, japan, china ect but its a interesting point i wouldnt mind knowing, i would do what ever it takes to get life in japan ^^ hehe the meeting place, some anime producing company xD                Self teaching is good and simple seeming you set yourself the stuff, the negative is if you get tired you have no one to say 'get to work' and also a problem as you rely on textbooks and net to review if its correct, but otherwise it is pretty nice :D I agree with you though, in some classes which can be tough you just loose interest but the'd be alot more enjoyable with a person you can get on with sat with ya, its something i dont understamd there though, why do some teachers split friend groups up, some do work better with a friend than on there own in my opinion...             

It's a shame to hear you had to deal with that, i dont think them sorta projects are fair, they commonly have them and if you question them as i did once they just say its to help with confidence and to help you speak clearly to people... thats a lie though, i told them all it does is put non-confident on the spot and make em misserable... try telling them that though, apparntly they know best, but it's good its all over and done with now though right :)                

I wish they would stop bullies, it reminded me reading that of someone i knew, he was this kid who was in a wheel chair his whole life, in school (talking when we was juniors...) he was picked on by everyone, not just called names though i mean they would try taunting him out his chair take his chair away and laugh at him crawl around, he did anything and everything to fit in but was picked on his whole life, he ended up having a heart attack all but the other year in a shop where some bullies was bothering him still and he sadly died, he died at about 16 or 17 and i find it sad because he was bullied his whole life, meaning he lived a misserable life where he was never accepted anywhere and so he ended up dying misserable, i thought it was a sad thing really... the worst side is half these bullies just didnt care, they didnt care they caused him to die (his heart attack was triggered via stress) and that was awful, it's as you said, why is nothing being done, they get to mingle into good honest people and destory there life's (or at least there childhood through there teens sometimes further on) and its all a game to them... it not fair really.               

i agree ap is kinda a otaku's facebook :D it could in ways be seen as social networking, its purpose is a anime list but the chat is kinda growing as members meet one another and talk more. I think it's good as unlike sites where you might meet new people, its hard to start a convo with some random people, and honestly i just dont want to if that person might be 'scum' but on ap or ELF for that there's always some common ground, everyone knows you like anime if your here so its just finding common interest in them and you got a convo going, normally to find most people here are nice ^^ i havent seeen many bad types :D i agree i wish it was more private, so it was done vis messaging as someone might read your comments who you dont want to, fortunatly i just think if someone is sad enough to read my long long comments i send to people then they must be dumb as 90% of it wont make sense to them ^^ so either they really wanna be friends or they wouldnt waste there time, sometimes the comments thing is good, you find a few new people through comments but i prefer messaging privatly at least with some stuff (like our convo's =] )           

20,000 characters in words, well there isnt a number, it depends on word lengh i guess, obviously words like 'because' uses 7 characters where as some words like 'yes' are less than half at 3 but some words might be longer at 12 and so forth, suppose it depends on how you speak, real smart people who use mass interlect in words probberly dont know how to not use uber long words :D honestly i doubt there is one, well there must be one but i doubt it's one which you will find, one big enough to claim a whole profile page maybe :P    

 And thankyou, i didnt know whether to keep my Avatar or not, i liked this one but felt it looks out of place but i do sorta love it, i do agree with that, we probberly do have simular interest for avatars style ^^ i generally do use differant one's accross sites, one alone makes you easier to find and all but using several lets you be creative in choice (and if you really want to have some but cant decide which one you can have em all this way ^^)     

Changing site name, go to This Link and post your request there, just be sure to read the rules in the first post (it only a few lines nothing long ^^) my post was used for a example (ironicly enough :D) for changing names to already taken names and is now page one (though the origonal was deleted as they get deleted once they done your request it's simple really, but if you need any help with it let me know ^^ also i dont mind how you address me :D i never minded my old user name honestly, i just really felt like i liked the name Madoka alot so i figured i would try for it. 

Once again sorry for late reply ;)
