I was going to put some chibi gif.'s here, but who needs that when you can have a wall of egotistical text !?!

First of all, why am I here?  Why I like Lists. I tend to have a habit of making lists.  Lists, lists and more lists while procrastinating in my spare time.  Also being nosy and seeing my life go by so Anime Planet was the perfect place.

Moving on...  I do like to give referencess to other medias on my reviews or just recomending word of mouth, since I feel anime can be a standars media/art form and shouldn't be separated from others such as books.

On anime being individual I would rate things rather oddly.  What appeals most to me is music and background animation (aesthetics, for art's sake!). After that would be script writing and character development followed by story and so on. Shows that make you think like Evangelion, Lain or Paranoia Agent.  Anime is an art forum like others.  Although it is restricted to only be written by japanese accounts, it can still teach us of our past and our human nature.

Hobbies: Piano/Keyboard (Jazz and lowgrade Classical),   Cycling (living near city/mountains/sea is an oportunity not missed),  Roleplay (Dungeons & Dragons and Dark Heresy),  Reading (only read for 5% of my spare time but love it none the less),  Absorbing all human knowledge.

Favorite Musicians:  Jordan Rudess, Yoko Kanno, Igor Stravinsky, Oscar Peterson, King Crimson

Favorite BooksHerman Hesse: Sidartha, Osamu Tezuka: Buddha, Mo Yan: Big Brests And Wide Hips, Variouse Sources: 1000 Nights And 1 Night , Haruki Murakami: A Hard Boiled Wonderland And The End of The World

Favorite Civilizations:  Ottoman Empire, Holy Roman Empire, Napoleonic Empire, Wei/Shu/Wu Dynasty, Globalization

Favorite Movies:  Princess Mononoke, Magnolia, Ikiru, Citizen Kane, Lawrence Of Arabia

Favorite Albums:  Pain Of Salvation: Be,  Igor Stravinsky: The Firebird,  John Coltrane: Blue Train, Ottorion Resphigi: Sinfonia Drammatica,  Ayreon: The Human Equation

Well, as you know, I'm quite often online, so it's odd that you haven't seen me there. :O  I googled this Ron Hubbard and found out that he has created his own church. At that instant I understood that I'm dealing with a sharlatan.

Now that I think about it, you might be right! I believed one of his pets got sick, I just couldn't recall which one. And it's true that Amedio the little monkey was much more of a character than the donkey. I'm sorry about the confusion, and for inducing into error!! o////o

Btw does that line "Keep it cheesy, keep it safe" refer to a quote from LOTR (by Gandalf), "Keep it secret! Keep it safe!"? :)

I like to chat with people on facebook, that's why I use it often. Nice new header photo btw. I like Glenn Miller too ;)  What religious texts though? Btw have you seen anime "Natsume Yuujinchou"? It's my current anime. If you haven't seen then I advise, if you have then I would like to know your opinion. It's a slow-pace anime though, with not too much action.

Don't worry, I don't mind at all.

I wouldn't be surprised if it were the first anime you've ever watched, since it was one of my first too. I assume you meant donkey and not monkey. If so, I believe that happens, although I'm not exactly sure anymore since it has been so long...
