Anime made my world go round .. and it hasn't stoppend since ^^

Favortie Anime:

I love romance .. either drama or comedy .. I'm a total sucker for the lovey dovey stuff. I heart feel-good anime. Not really an epocalyptic, action, supernatural, alien, heroes, fantasy, fighting anime watcher - but Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon, Avatar (**thats not an anime!!!*) etc. are everyone's childhood classics ^^.

What makes me dislike an anime:

The ending is what will make or break an anime for me... in general it goes like this: Open endings, tragic endings, pure comedy with no plot or story, I hated all the characters' decisions, no one ended up with anyone/ unrequitted love, and the guy who loved one girl and for no apparent reason -half way through the show decides to love another one. I will most likely drop any anime that I find out is heading in that direction... I can't tolerate the heartbreak T_T.

Manga:

Started reading them after watching an awesome anime that had no second season ^^ *ahem Nana. Now I always read them to get to the end of an unfinished anime ... and also because there's just so much good manga out there that may never see the light of animation. I prefer completed ones, because I hate waiting months for the translations ^^ ... or when the author gets sick and the story never sees its end T.T

My Ratings:

I rate pretty high compared to most people... I think - and thats because 1- I really did enjoy all those animes. I'm fairly easily entertained in the romance comedy genre - so if I don't rate high or drop its because there wasn't enough romance. And 2, I don't usually watch shows I think i won't like - so I avoid a lot of anime I would have voted negatively in the first place.

3 stars for me means "the anime was ok or average, just maybe not my style"... 4 means it was "good" ... and 5 means "I will watch that anime more than once"... 2 is "bad" and 1 is "what the hell was that".

And Finally:

Pl leave recommendations .. I am always looking for new ones to watch ^^. P.S. I love Korean and Taiwanese dramas - so feel free to ask me recs on that as well.

Yea well, Holidays were like they usually are, I just hung out with a few friends and got pretty drunk lol.

Aye, you told me your internet connection was really slow, I must say I love that it takes three minutes per episode when I download!

If you are going to watch Clannad, you'd definately have to stack up on some backup animes. First season is great, second season is even greater. I love the series, even though it's a true roller coaster indeed.

I know how you feel, I've been at that point for a long time. I rarely find animes that I really really enjoy. I feel like I've watched everything that's out there. I browse AniDB.net and different anime forums for one or two hours per day. When I do find one that's good it makes me jump up and down in joy.

I personally think Kimi ni Todoke is quite good, even though monologues can last forever sometimes. Shoujo, Seinen and Josei romance are my favorites to be honest, as they're often more mature and there's a lot less comedy in them. I'm quite the comedy-hater actually.

I was going to ask you if you hade any recommendations :(

As far as the piano goes, I just don't play a lot, and I'm quite busy in real life at the moment.

Yours sincerely,

Ryuuk

Hi there

Well, Peru has a very rich mixture of cultures and, of course, languages. It's great that you are able to study and travel, although I can see how it could affect your bengali learning, there's no better way to learn a new language that being exposed to it all the time. One curious thing is that my mother tongue (Spanish) is what I use better to "feel" when I read or speak, since all my Japanese-learning material is in English I expected to associate the Japanese characters to English words, but when I remember some words I remember them in Spanish,guess because the basic concept behind is still in Spanish in my mind :) . Perhaps that's why it's difficult to talk with my fiancée in English (we tried to do it for a while so we can both practice) in the end we mix Spanish and English from time to time (not French because I can't understand her well yet).

When I was watching Nana I realized that sometimes in the beginning of each episode when Nana speaks, it's like she was remembering, narrating past events, just as if she was alone in her present, so I was expecting the series to separate them and (hopefully) reunite them again in the end, but it's only my guessing. I'll keep watching the remaining episodes to see how it goes with the story, since you read the manga (which is usually more advanced than the anime) you may have a better idea of where the plot is going, anyway I hope the writer recovers and give us a ending for the story, I'm not necessarily aiming for a happy one since this is a very original work so I will be happy just with the end the writer decides.

What I enjoyed the most in the animation was the surprise expressions and clever remarks from time to time, also the pet-behavior of hachiko, and of course the first opening song goes to my favorite list.

See you around

Hi, Merry Christmas.

About learning japanese...I'm learning it with a combination of websites and applications. Sites like WWWJDIC which is just great, also some kanji training program loaded in my cellphone so I can check it while riding the bus and in my free time; of course along with the motivation of being able to understand the book 5 of Wolf & Spice which is being translated in the bakatsuki site (my gratitude to them) but I just can't wait for them to get there.

I'm glad to know that you also speak Italian, it sounds very cool in the movies and, as you said, there are parts which are pretty much understandable. The grammar and the language particularities had to be quite interesting, and it seems like you are going to be in touch with yet another language (bengali), wonder what it will be more like in grammar. Besides Spanish,english and my current attempts in japanese I've been in touch with Aymara (my grandmother speaked to me only in aymara when I was a child and both my parents are fluent in it, even so I can barely understand it due to lack of practice), quechua (which is another strong language here in Peru - the official language from the old Inca empire) and a very little French (only because I signed myself up in a 2-months course along with my fiancee). Anyways it's very fun for me just to know what a word means in another language.

Having said that, feel free to ask any question about spanish. I'll be more than glad to be of help to you.(Habiendo dicho aquello, sientete libre de hacerme cualquier consulta referente al español. Estare más que contento de serte util) 

By the way, I'm about to finish NANA. and it keeps surprising me with each new development, which is what I like the most in a serie: being impredictable. Good choice with this one and thank you for including it on your list.

See you..

Torrents aren't slower, they're pretty fast for me atleast.

Yes, I just finished watching REC, I stalled it quite a long time ago, but finished it recently. To be honest I didn't even know there was a tenth episode.

And aye, that's something I created a long time. Also, yes - that's me playing the piano, but I don't play a lot nowadays unfortunately.

Love,

Ryuuk
