Once again I find myself re-writing this introduction. Each time it happens I find myself even further up on the Otaku-ladder with my preferences changed. This time I seem to prefer darker shoujo, even if I fear I've already seen the very best in Revolutionary Girl Utena, Rose of Versailles and Oniisama E. Other than that I'm always up for something artsy or mindfuck-ish but use lighthearted fluff in-between to create something I can fall back on.

I'm a 17 year old boy from Sweden who loves his anime but also movies, music, books, spending time with friends, traveling and studying Japanese (Still a beginner but making progress). I guess the anime part is the only relevant thing over here though. Basically I feel like nothing I'll ever see will be able to top my favourite show (Revolutionary Girl Utena) but I still spend lots of time searching for anything that might; if you have any recommendations feel free to bring them on! I sometimes watch things just because they're obscure as hell and hard to find... that's it for me I guess. I love discussing anime though, as well as talking to random people so write a comment if you feel like it!

Random anime that mean something to me and why:

Revolutionary Girl Utena:

This one doesn't have any significance to me other than "It's everything I could ever want from an anime". The symbolism makes for great re-watch value; the characterization is subtle and absolutely mindblowing; the music is amazing, animation beautiful and the entire thing is just bizarre enough to completely sweep me off my feet.

Wandering Son:

I don't identify as transgendered, but nonetheless, it makes me happy just thinking about this show. It tackles the topic head-on whilst using the situation of the main character not for humour nor as an insignificant plot device but simply to tell an amazing story. A lof of transgendered characters in fiction (as well as LBGT in general) tend to be more or less offensive, or at least unappealing in one way or another. This is not the case here and I love it.

Spirited Away:

Nostalgia. I watched this with my friends when I was 7 and re-discovered it at age 15. Without Spirited Away I wouldn't be an anime fan today. I kind of feel like I'm giving it too much credit but I just can't find any reason not to love it!

Princess Mononoke:

Environmental movies... those words combined send chills down my spine. Why? Because they're generally made by people with a "nature is awesome humanity sucks" mentality who refuse to be openminded for even a second. Princess Mononoke though remains completely unbiased and emphasizes virtues and flaws of humanity and nature alike. That alone is praiseworthy in my eyes. But it's also beautifully animated and magnificently told. If an attempt was made to objecitvely decide which Ghibli movie is the best (which of course is impossible) I still feel like this one would win.

Hi. So..... Ummm.... I wanted to say hi. I LOVE the Miazaki  movies, well most of them. I hope we can be friends. Howls Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away Are definitely my favorite Miazaki movies. I also love Shiki, and Another. Have an amazing day or something. Please answer back.

Recently watched Princess Mononoke, and I agree with you, very unbias but still so powerful. That film was something else altogether, changed my outlook on the world a bit, i'd like to think

Hello!  sothis is redesigning the anime-planet site, and plans to roll out an awesome new site design in July, we believe. The blog feature is not part of the new design, and it is going away.  More information about this here:  Announcement: the blog feature is being deprecated topic link.  (Be sure to check out the new site design when it goes live!)

The blog pages are going away, and will be gone when the site redesign goes live. Your blog here will be removed from the site.

So, if want to keep the information posted in your blog, you will need to copy this information someplace else on the site. If you have any questions how or where to do this, please feel free to get back to me, and I will try to assist.

(For instance, your lists of Over-rated and Under-rated anime could be posted as Discussion topics in the site's Forum to elicit commentary from other members here.)

Yo! It's been a while, huh?

Last time we've talked you told me to write my own review, even if I didn't knew where to start, remember? Well, I still don't have enough words to write a review, but I've risked writing a little recommendation, wadaya think?

Ps: I was reading your bio again today, and I've found out that you didn't update your age in there yet, you're now eighteen, right?
