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)
