about me

Greetings all, welcome to my profile, I have updated this once again.

Grew up with a love for science fiction and fantasy, which eventually led me to anime. I tend to prefer thought-provoking shows with dark and tragic elements. Shows with elements a bit left of centre or slightly odd tend to catch my attention.

A reason I got really into anime is the way some stories are told. Shows like Neon Genesis Evangelion have ambiguity which leaves it up to the viewer to decide certain things. In Ghost in the Shell, I enjoyed pondering the notion of identity and cyborgs. Are they human beings if parts of them are robotic? Are cyborgs human if they have a soul? So it's these things, combined with the joy of escaping reality that drew me into the world of anime.

That being said, I am also open-minded and don't mind romance and slice of shows on the odd occasion. I like to spend time researching shows I might like, hence why I'm on Anime-Planet. The recommendations aspect I find very helpful.

I rate a show purely on how much I enjoyed it.

Yeah, it sounds really good from what I've heard. I actually ordered the CD earlier today. I never really listened to them until recently because I typically stick to the extreme metal genres. I heard the vocalist is new, and I think he does a great job.

Have you listened to Iced Earth's new album? I was thinking about getting it.

Thanks, this was my last Evangelion amv (at least until 3.0 comes out). I like that song too. Out of the Electro/Idustrial music I own this is one of my favorites. I have no idea when my next amv will be finished. But it won't be as exciting as this one (I will try to focus on the "flow" of the video).

So I have had a free weekend and finished another Amv. Dunno if you're still interested but here you go:

Berserk manga is much better than the anime. The problem is that the anime leaves out lots of stuff. Some of it is important to understand what's going on later in the manga. So if you want to pick it up you'd have to start from the beginning again. (Well one good thing about mangas is that you can just click through the parts you already know.) Like the anime the manga starts with an anticipation but drags it on a lot more. So just read it and don't give up on it too fast. It will be worth it.

Lately school kept me busy and it's only getting worse. I had hardly time to edit and I'm already very slow to begin with. There will be more to come, I'll just to it at my own pace.
