about me

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.

Dude, I love in Miami, the land of no basements. Your insults have too many holes, and therefore I give them an overall 5/10 for creativity.

That was pretty lame, but the "your sister was a chair' thing made me laugh so hard xD

After all, I only have 3 brothers and 0 sisters. I do wish I had an ice cream place nearby, though :(
