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。

Hey, thanks for the comment.  The books are pure magic.  I re-read the series almost every year and I get a different interpertation every time.

Please don't take that comment too harshly as critique, it's just the way I go into these kind of series, blogs are supposed to display your thoughts. But well, it's not like I'm a big FLCL fan either. I really enjoyed it, but it doesn't comes near my toplist.

Great top 5 btw, 2 anime I really enjoyed (GotF / GitS), 1 I still am enjoying (Kino's Journey) and 2 that are very high on my WtW list :P

Just realised that Ill never get in all the animes Ive seen, too many hours in front of the tv.. :P

anyway, Ive tried to whatch Lain a few times since everybody tells me its so deep and philosofical, and every time I get boored. it could be that it gets better and a bit deeper a few episodes into the series but for me it feels as if they are just trying to make it feel philosofical when its actually just a slow-paced anime with some mysticism put in to ckeep the audience hanging.

Im probably wrong and I hope that I will whatch the whole anime some day, but for the moment Ive stoped trying.
