Hello. I'm Aurora. I've been into anime for about 11 years. My 1st anime was pokemon but my "starter" anime I consider to be Naruto as that has gotten me into Anime overall. I mainly use this site to update my Anime list and keep track of what I'm watching.

[Will be updating my Profile here gradually overtime since a lot of it is old, from when I was a High Schooler/College Student which I am no longer. A lot of what I've said here may seem strange, and that is because I was a very different kind of person several years ago.)

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.

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.

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

Hm... On Wednesday I should be able to squeeze in an hours gameplay with you. I think I'll roll another Natasha, I liked the gunplay :3

Congrats on getting accepted into AnimeBytes :) I think I saw you mentioning not having enough space? I'd recommend buying a 1 or 2TB external for around 80-120 euro. Judging by your list you watch a lot more than I do, yet I've managed to fill around 850GB worth of anime alone.

The rules are easier than they look to follow, just keep your seeds active and you should be fine. You won't get banned for bad ratios and lots of hit and runs btw, just limited slots.

It's not a very list oriented site. Most members link to MAL or Anime-Planet to show off their lists.

Actually uploading new torrents is only really necessary if you want to hit new ranks (Power User, Torrent Master etc). Just chatting and seeding/leeching is enough to fully experience the site :)

Stryk3r117 Jan 16, 2012

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.

Madoka Jan 15, 2012

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 ^^)

Stryk3r117 Jan 15, 2012

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)
