What to write in a bio... I've never been able to do this properly.

I'm a IT college student from the Netherlands, studying on the HvA in Amsterdam, who spends too much of his free time watching anime, browsing A-P and playing instruments. I'm a bum by nature, although I've been trying to become a bit more active lately (or rather, I have to if I want to reach my goals :P)

A little bit about myself. I love lots of things: Music, playing guitar / bassguitar / piano (/singinglulz) on my amateur level, sports, the human mind, philosophy, art, literature, movies, series, anime, manga, basically every medium to tell stories, sweet things, salt things, bitter things (especially in the form of cholocate), kiwi's, mangos, curry (the last two being an exceptional combination), sushi, pancakes, pizza and the zillion other things I could mention here.

Music is my biggest obsession though. I listen to almost every genre, from Metal to Indie / Altrock to Classical, there's a genre for every mood, DeathCore & friends being the exception, in which case I don't even hate the music itself, but the grunting T_T

 

P.A.A.S. Blog

P.A.A.S. is a blog I'm running with Sunagan, my girlfriend (whom I met through A-P, fun fact). We're currently too busy to keep the blog up-to-date, but we're keeping it in case we're feeling like continuing it at a later date. My little description:

Do you know that state of bafflement and emptiness after finishing something amazing? That's what P.A.A.S. blog, or Post Awesome Anime Syndrome is all about. Sunagan is the main writer of this blog, posting about her thoughts on anime-related matters and P.A.A.S.-moments. I'll occasionally be posting blogs here as well, namely for VN Reviews. Click that link, give it a read and don't forget to comment!

My favorite and hated genres

The reason I haven't filled out my Fav / Least fav genres, is because I don't really have an "all-time favorite" genre, and there are always exceptions to Least Favorite Genres.

If I had to say, my favorite "genre" would probably be mindf*ck series, but that's not recognized as a genre here. I'll just list my general favorites / least favorites here, but by no means do I limit myself into watching these genres.

Favorites: Mindf*ck, Psychological, Comedy, Random, Drama, Romance

Least Favorite: Harem, although there's a fine line here. I really can't go listing harem as Least Favorite Genre, with Clannad so high in my top list, and while usually liking Kanon2006, Air and alike. The sort of harem I dislike are the Love Hina / Rosario to Vampire Capu2 sort of harems. The ones where the male lead and one of the girls have a crush on each other and thus go superakward / hostile against each other (...), not to mention ZERO plot progression, or such a boring plot you forget about it halfway in.

Wow! I saw your signature on the forums and clicked here...every single one of your top fifteen is on my 'to watch' list, except ToraDora. How odd is that? You have awesome taste, at any rate! Just wanted to drop by and post that. :)

 

Take care!

Yes, Gintama is pretty light mostly, but there is some really deep parts. When you get to know the characters you will most likely begin to laught at things that other people would miss, because you just know the characters so well and they have real personalities that grow during the series.

Another interesting thing behind gintamas humor is that it is based on the fact trhat they live in really difficult times but still try to survive and live everyday to the fullest. This isn't mentioned everywhere, but it is quite sad.

The first season should give a good picture on the series, altought it gets better over time. As usual, first episodes are not the best ones.
