Hi,

My anime odyssey began May 2008. Friend of mine gave me a few eps of Elfen Lied. I din't know it back then, but now I know he was giving me a drug. So now I am hooked thanks to my friend. ^^ I love anime for beautiful stories, originality and emotions. Western movies and shows are a bit dull these days, but still I do enjoy some classics (mainly hong kong action movies - Jackie! , good sci-fi - Space Odyssey). Anime has replaced modern live action movies for me and I am glad it has.

I still consider books to be the best medium for telling a story. I am a bit sad about the young generation who generally doesn't know what a good book has to offer. SF & F is my genre of choice (Asimov, Sapkowski, Card, Herbert etc.), but I enjoy a book of any genre if it is good (Murakami etc.). I especially like classics written or translated to old English and Nordic sagas and poetry (viking mythology, yay!). Plus occasional haiku (Basho, Santoka, Issa).

I love music. There are quite a few anime OSTs I have in my collection, Yoko Kanno and Yuki Kajiura being my favourite composers. Sakamoto Ryuichi is my non-anime choice (Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence). I hate confining myself to one genre, but most of the bands I listen to play metal (to name a few : Blind Guardian, Sabaton, Amon Amarth...). I still think that a live performance of Bard's Song by Blind Guardian (check it on youtube) is the ultimate musical experience ^^.

As for the anime, I can watch pretty much anything, only ecchi isn't on the top of my list. I love philosophical stuff and good action shows. My rating system is a bit askew, 3 stars means a show I have enjoyed. I have done this in order to distinguish between the very best (4 and 5 stars). If you have any recs, I would love to hear them!

どうぞよろしくおねがいします。

Hey there! Lol, sorry for not replying for the last 4 days coz i was being too lazy =P But yeah, Im back now~!! XD

How'd your exams goal? I hope you did well :) Oh btw, what grade/year are you? Myself, im in Form 7 so next year ill be in Uni (if everything goes well hopefully XD)

Btw, I looked at your profile and it seems you've seen Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan but you didnt like it - i saw it yesternight and personally, i thought it was awesome. Was there any particular reason why u didnt like it? Im guessing all the random gore moments probably didnt appeal to everyone. Oh well, everyone has different tastes of course.

Btw, were you watching any of the recent shows that just ended like last week? Stuff like: K-On!, Tayutama, Hatsukoi Limited etc...? What'd u think about them ( if you watch any of them...)

So, what're you watching recently??

Are you watching the second season of Haruhi? Man, that last episod (4/14) was so SHIT!! It was a bloody copy-pasta!! wTF!!#! XS

Anyways, talk to you again soon~!! (actually this time !! XD)

Cya~

Anyways, WOW you love anime OSTs tooo! SWEEEEEEET!!!

But who's Yuki Kajiura and Yoko Kanno>? Im dunno much of about the actual artists, i only know when i love the song xD

But yeah , i recently added to my profile a lil list of songs i REALLY loved (from anime intros and outros). You like any of them too? And do you have any really awesome one to recommned? On that note, i actually watched most of the first season of Shakugan no Shana just because of the epic intro!!! XD Yeah, i didnt actually like the show that much (did you?) but the intro was just too awesome that i think i *kinda* liked the show.. :)

Well talk to you laterz~
