Hi there! I'm a not-so-normal girl living in Seattle, WA. I work for a software company as a writer of developer documentation, but my background is computer science and programming. In my spare time I enjoy console RPGs such as my obsession, Dragon Quest (or old school PC ones such as Ultima aka best games ever, or Sierra adventure classics), anime (duh!), sci fi, movies, my cats, and various other nerd things.

I created the Anime-Planet site many years ago, as a simple hub for a community. It has grown so much since then, and I'm proud to call myself its creator and admin. Please enjoy your stay here!

----------------

My anime list stats and uses:

Watched: as it should be used, this means I've seen the entire series.

Watching: Either am currently watching or plan on continuing at some point soon

Stalled: I mark things as stalled when I either can't continue (no more episodes available), or plan on finishing eventually - just not right now.

Dropped: I don't plan on finishing this anime.

Oh geez, I'm so sorry for getting to this a week later! I know I'm bad but I am really bad. But a week, man I'm on fire.

Cross-recs, definite yes. For the ones you listed:

Survival: God yes.

Horror: Guilty pleasure.

High Stakes Games: HHHNNNGGGGHHHH

For manga, definitely, Anime is more hit or miss with how long I take to watch stuff but for manga it's a better batting average. Reading speed varies, but already caught up with one series over 2 days with 80 chapters (Terra Formars style where it's "Oh crap, it's... what? 3 AM? And I'm still reading? Man, screw sleep. I'll power through because people are punching the heads off jacked up mutant steroid cockmanroaches") and already have one or two recs in mind for it.

Last time you recced me something, it was Terra Formars, which was Commando levels of manly awesome. And I see the cover of Green Worldz and I'm just squinting at it, asking if that's a giant shiv, but then I look closer and see it's a chainsaw thing. Final statement: "heh, and I wanted to sleep tonight." Since it's plants, guessing it's less about kickboxing heads off and more plant grooming stuff, like what they do with woodchippers and chainsawing foliage.

Final thing: I am glad I reread that because I totally misread it and now know what you mean by cross-rec. Which I considered for a second and the conclusion I came to is a resounding, definite, yes.

I thought that was a greenworldz exclusive question earlier.

As for what's similar to (AoT) http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110904172810/muvluv/images/6/6f/Betasize.png

I would have just linked you that if i read that properly earlier, but as for the rest mainly some spoilerific things.

Isayama Hajime somewhat got his idea of the 3d gear from the mechanics behind tsf's (the mecha) and if you're open minded enough you should be able to spot a large handfull of similarities like mr. clean levi, humanities first victory, the tree in the chapter (to you in 2000 years) followed by see you later and eren in tears. Mikasa's name is also a direct reference to two muv-luv character's name's you should catch on quick, but that's just me getting warmed up.

The only other things i can say is squad similarities, character similarities and plot similarities here and there.

Oh and.. "People die if they're killed."

Both SST animes were alright.

http://www.anime-planet.com/users/StormVanguard/anime?l=s&page=6 As you can see from my score.

I think the main problem i had with the 1988 ova was the aliens felt a bit underwhelming aside from that the story didn't seem bad at all and honestly the artstyle was quite charming for its time as well. Invasion feels like they jacked SST with a dose of adrenillian honesty it's nothing special but you can't beat the rule of cool.

Both combined could have been something good.
