about me

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。

perhaps, but it is not in a matter of speaking for you to like but only acknowledge its presents.  expanding your views in and out of many things helps you gain a great understanding and preparation for what you may and may not expect.  Staying in the bubble of yourself in essence makes your reactions to obstacles, trials and expectations either too low or too high.  I found that the many of things in/out, good/bad, hard/easy, off/on and even yes/no much more or less then it seems when you have plenty of views and understanding as you can gain.  Even now i wonder, think and try to understand what it is i can do to help now and future then just watch from the side.  Much like our conversation can be seen as a means of assistance or hindrance.  Constructive or destructive, what you may gain from this can be far more then i may have foreseen.  I will say that i am not here to be destructive or belittle, i am only answering to your silent question.

agreed, as for the gaps in-between generations, it is quite disturbing but not alarming.  If you were to research the different generations and study their charatersists, you would find it quite informative and explains the differences and the reasons for them, but at the same time, they do repeat in a cycle in this linar time.  Although it is reasonalble to classifiy your generation as Generation Y, also known as Millennials or Generation X.  I found out that i fall in the start of this generation.

i do enjoy read as well, as for the stats, that took total nearly 20 years.  Whhen one asks where do they have time for such things, it is most often that people find the means for things they wish the most for, good ro bad.  Not to be rude, but i do beleive you are still a kid yourself.  Like you said, a good book often tells more then movies or tv can offer, but remember japanes animation like books can offer nearly endless story lines that movies or tv can show and even a good book can offer.  It is the viewers mind and soul that can define the power of anything.

Hey~

I knew it, everywhere in the world, the internet is cheaper and faster than in NZ, lol. Oh well. At least the scenery is nice, ^.^.

Yeah, in fact, i just talked to this other guy here on A-P who's in the US, and we figured out that his speeds are 5 times faster than mine, lol. He gets 1.25megabytes per second. I was like, damn... if only i had that fast speeds and unlimited data usage like you guys, then id have tonnes of anime by now, lol. But actually, you're probably right. If i had such awesome speeds and unlimited data use, i prob will stop collecting on my HD. I mean, i could just access it easily from the net then, instead of having to waiting for ages like i do these days.

So for you, does it like like 5-10 mins to download a new episode of some relatively new show? Like for me, downloading a 300mb ep would take, 20mins to half an hour if its fast, but since your speeds like 800kbs, it must take only about 6mins?

And, shit, Tony Jaa's is name spelt "Jaa"!? Lol, i always thought it was Jar (which looks kinda dumb now that i think about it, haha)

And i just looked him up on Wiki and now i know the names of the movies ive seen of him ^^

Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior

Tom-Yum-Goong

Personally i liked Tom-Yum-Goong better. (you havent seen it yet aye?) I loved the part where he gets the femur bones of an elephant and wields them like clubs just wasting people up. Great stuff.

And wow, i didnt know there was an Ong Bak 2!? Lol, i guess ill have to download it sometime soon ^^. And look! Theres gonna be Ong Bak 3 as well (this year apparently!)

This bit off Wiki sounds intriguing: "Moreover, in Ong Bak 3 Tien's legs and arms will be damaged by torture and require Jaa's character to "fight with some sort of boneless action." Wow, just wow... O.O

Its gonna be great XD

Cya later
