Me:


Engineer, science enthusiast, walking compendium of useless information, AMV maker, hardcore geek.

Here's one of my AMVs. My channels are NeoBattousaiGX (inactive), CyberdarkVenom, and Kiripro (Kiripro2008 in the url).


Why I Love Anime:

It's a fantastic art form. It's not just cartoons. It's cartoons with significant depth that other kinds just don't pull off. For the most part it's the most realistic type of cartoon, albeit exaggerated in certain ways. Most cartoons use some kind of flat, tubey or bizarrely jagged style, giving people impossible body types, while most anime characters look like functional human beings. Even girls with gag-boobs like Shizuka from Highschool of the Dead or Naga from Slayers. :P

Also, anime is more of a story-telling medium than a simple entertainment medium. They often have stories and characters that allow a person to get invested more deeply than other types of animation. It's a lot easier to care about what happens to say, Tomoya Okazaki (Clannad), than it is to care about what happens to pretty much any given cartoon character.

My Anime Buying Policy:

I only buy the animes I really like, and only if they're available for a reasonable price. I'm very "try before I buy" to avoid wasting money. Pirate or stream first, buy later. If the show just isn't available, then I'm just going to pirate it. Their fault for not selling their product where willing consumers exist.

Dub or Sub?:

I prefer dubs for convenience, but if a dub is unfaithful to the original, has awful casting, both, or the show just isn't dubbed, then I'll watch it subbed. I'm just terrible about watching subbed anime in a timely manner. I can bang out a dub in one sitting while listening to it and doing something else if it's a short series, but subbed might take a few weeks just because of the attention it requires.

Top 10:

I had to leave out a few favorites that I really wanted to include, but...

  1. Sword Art Online
  2. Slayers
  3. Rurouni Kenshin
  4. Hellsing Ultimate
  5. High School of the Dead
  6. High School DxD
  7. Good Luck Girl
  8. B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time
  9. Rosario + Vampire
  10. Clannad (& After Story)

Corpse Princess? Lol is it really that terrible!? A friend got me one of those free mini posters from Comic Con last year of that exact series. Looked interesting haha No EV training!? It gets tedious :/ I'm mainly doing it to see how well I can be, and also so I can start Soul Silver with a badass team with perfect IV's, EV's, and nature. :3 Apparently Serebii.net has their own Pokemon League, you get badges to show off on the forum! Roflmooooooo yeah made a cow sound Oh ye, I bought a Sega Dreamcast a year or two ago though it did not come with an AV cable. Just recently I aquired one, and the game Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver. This was my face when the Dreamcast was broken: http://myfacewhen.com/63/

Dang my Victini's IVs for speed and special attack are top tier! xD I just HAD to EV train him not just for that, but because a friend of mine said something "...with my super powerful Victini!" He had no intention of competitive play...nor do I...though those words compelled me to make mine better than his ;-; I'm competitive at heart >_< Yeah I feel ya xD Though I'm on the brink of passing out and it's 2AM (yay for autocorrect) I'll have to come back and lurk some moar! MOAR MOOOOAAAARRRRR

Hell yeah, Zekrom looks so legit on the cover. I've finally caught Victini after lurking the neighborhood for a half hour trying to get a wifi signal. I named it "Ichigo" rofl :D

Lul I suppose I have the balls xD I just view existence as, well, how an existentialist would... so to speak. My mindset is like no matter where I'm at in the present, I know I am on the right track, regardless of how terrible the situation is. That's just a fraction of it. My view on life --no, existence-- is interesting. Atleast I find it to be. :3 I don't know of any written words to describe my view/beliefs, though philosophical existentialism seems to be the closest thing, if not dead-on. (I haven't yet studied it, only read some basic ideas) Oh! This might sound strange/not make sense (lol) but that chunk of rambling doesn't only influence(???) the firefighting thing, but is also the reasoning for the love of the Kingdom Hearts series (among other things) despite me never playing it.

 

Thanks :3 So what's new with you? Anything as of late..?I pulled a double-shift today at work, woot woot

WALL OF TEXT

 

Awesome :D

Which version do you prefer? I heard Black had a better area/story or something. I chose white soley on instinct lol It just felt right xD

 

Not sure if I did, but any who I moved to back to Alabama. I love the humidity so much.

Right now I landed another job at the Pizza Hut here. It's awesome, only like 8 minutes away by car. Not to mention a Barns and Noble, Gamestop, Target, Best Buy, Starbucks, Walmart, and my bank are all in the same lot >w< It's pretty convenient.

 

LOLPSP What is that nonsense!? Haha, those 3DS's do indeed look beast. I had a dude at GS to show me his on launch, it was pretty sic. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I don't have the cash to buy one at the moment. I spent close to 600 bucks on the drive here. Nevada to Alabama. It was mostly buying new tires and gas (gas wasnt too much, close to $300 maybe less)

 

Oh but never fear! I shall aquire that legit new handheld eventually. These are my new goals:

Train as a Firefighter (gonna need to look into that soon)Save a bunch of monies, possibly buy a PS2 (Or PS3...yeah, I'll buy a PS3)BUY 3DS

The sole reason on getting a PS3 is because I bought Kingdom Hearts I, II, and CoM (PS2 titles) and the fact that they (EFFIN BETTER) will make Kingdom Hearts III for it. They are already making one for the 3DS (win!) and have two on the DS (double win!) but sadly, they also have one for the PSP (loss.... </3) [it doesn't really matter about that one, it's a prequel to the entire series, no biggie.]

Did I mention I've never played a Kingdom Hearts game or Final Fantasy game ever? well besides like 5 minutes of KH2 and FF:CC but that hardly counts.

Ahhhh...why did I buy these games all of the sudden? I was in Hot Topic and saw a KH shirt. I totally bought it. XD

 

I have a computer to use finally, that's the reason for this mammoth wall of text lol!
