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.

I think Whispers in the dark is the worst out of the three. It's still awesome though. And yes metal and Claymore Amvs like each other. Dead End by In Flames would fit it perfectly. I'm surprised nobody has done that one yet. Maybe I should try it...

btw, do you know Nostromo? His Amvs are godlike.

I've tried watching Tiger & Bunny on ANN to support Siren but I don't like how they stream. I'm loving it so far so I'm definitely considering buying Tiger & Bunny. Siren are a much better company then Madman so I wanna give them all the support I can.

Haven't got around to seeing Karnivool yet but they're a local band so they play alot of shows in my area.

Hey man thanks for the welcome.

Star Driver is an anime I enjoyed alot. It's not the best but I found it incredibly entertaining. Good to find a fellow fan!

I see that you're an Australian like me. Karnivool is pretty awesome, what do you think of Birds of Tokyo? Have you seen them play live before?
