Hello and welcome to my page! How or why you found this random hole in the wall doesn’t really matter, nor does this text I typed either, but hey I might as well go give this old bio a new look again. I am a first year college student on the West coast of the US. I have no current or actual hobbies, at least in my mind, other than philosophy.
I do not consider my obsessive watching of anime or my gaming a hobby but more like something to do. It’s not like I never had a life at some point nor like to say that I don’t have one (terms such as living life are so broad and diverse, it is subjective, not objective), but it’s just all become complicated in the way I live so I just do what feels the most stable at this point in my life, at least for now. Books, anime, gaming are all I really tend to do for now but that’s going to all change soon enough. Nothing can remain the same for a long time, especially a concept or lifestyle.
But I’ll save that bit for another time as for now I want to continue typing. As for the main topic of anime, I have a few interests in certain categories however all of them must have some form of emotion! Humans are unique in the sense we can connect emotionally to each other with/without an actual person being currently present. The emotion itself is real and that is what matters, for without love, nothing can be seen. I’m talking about actual love, not the overdramatic type that claims it can overcome anything; it is a feeling, not a pwr-up invincibility star. Humans can overcome challenges but not emotion.
As for my viewing habits on anime, I usually rate based on good it presented itself or, at the least, if it managed to hit on spots for its aimed type or uniqueness. Most of my ratings have been in line with the calculated average that the A-P community already has so I don't think I overly rate too many things too often. However, if an anime had a fair psychological impact or at least provided with a story beyond the story, allowed or encouraged some form of thought, I usually give it a better rating than the average. If the anime in question can find an interesting balance of plot vs. characters, then it's worth a good shot and I'll watch it. However most of what I watch is really just based on the mood or, I can admit shamelessly, the artwork.
One last think I'd like to jot down as I go to bed is that I absolutely love symbolism in stories, be it anime or western. Symbolism gives the story depth, conveys feelings, and shares ideas beyond what can be seen allowing the story to be appreciated so much more. An example would be the short story, By the Waters of Babylon. A story that can teach is always worth reading time and time again in my view.
Also a cat is always fine too.
Oh and heres some music for you to enjoy =3
