About me... not much to tell, really.

I love pasta, screamo, and RPG's.

I have rather eclectic tastes in most things, particularly food and music, and try not to exclude anything based on how odd it may seem at first.

I'm a dog person, not because I hate cats, but simply because they don't tend to jump on your head until you wake up (true story, that).

I enjoy researching and collecting knives and firearms, not because I'm some kind of Rambo-wannabe freak, but rather because I find them aesthetically pleasing. I know, weird.

I am just as likely to watch something like Hellsing as I am to watch Kare Kano; again with the eclectic taste thing.

I like anime with strong female leads, not as some adolescent male reverse power-fantasy figure, but because it's a wonderfully empowering symbol of what women can accomplish; I also recognize that this has somewhat become the de facto standard of both anime and video games, and that it could lead to the dilution and ultimate cheapening of the image, becoming instead a vulgar cash-in without a meaningful exploration of the archetype. (Phew, that was a mouthfull.)

Anyway, that's about all I can think of right now to sum myself up, and if you actually read all of this, I'm shocked and flattered.

Thanks for your comment on my Aoi Hana review! ^_^

I realize that I am probably overly harsh on the show, but I felt that it was too abbreviated and the amount of love I hear for the manga seems to jibe with that overall feeling.

THAT SAID, I am really eager to get to Wandering Son, since by all accounts it's a better attempt at adapting a long and nuanced story into a short series.

Aw shucks! I haven't gotten around to Uncivilized Planet or Revolutionist, but I recently downloaded Freesia, and am pretty excited to start (eventually). It seems like it will be less gratuitous/more serious than most of his oeuvre. At least I hope...

(Tropical Citron was pretty ok too)

Haven't read the manga, but the anime was terrible. I will look into reading it when I get the chance though.

No problem ^_^ feel free to bug me anytime

Feel free to get back to me if you do decide to play them. I tried it out and wasn't that impressed (probably because I'm not used to VN's) but perhaps it gets better.

Thanks a lot! When I first saw it I was like "Oh my god! Destiny!" so I immediately switched. As I've said before I still love your avatar! It was from a visual novel, wasn't it? Have you played the Higurashi visual novels?

Sorry, you gave me a compliment and I attack you with questions xD
