Hi there, folks! I've been an anime fan since I stumbled across Naruto in 2009. I've since found that I actually enjoy genres besides action. I'm particularly fond of sports anime. (Like Kurobas, not the drama-filled Free!) That said, my favorite anime is Gungrave, an action-filled mafia sci-fi delight.

My star ratings are subjective. This shows most obviously when an anime is technically good, but offends or bores me. Also, I'm harsher with my ratings than I was in my first year or two, so something I gave 5 stars in 2010 might now only be 4 stars (or even 3). And sometimes the difference between 4.5 and 5 stars might just be my mood that day.

Other Places to Find Me:

Beneath the Tangles, where I write about anime and my Christian faith. Yes, really. We like to talk about anime, manga, visual novels, and religion at BtT—sometimes all in the same post. I met the founder here in the Anime-Planet forums way back in 2011, and that connection led to me joining the website four years later. ^_^

Hello!  sothis is redesigning the anime-planet site, and plans to roll out an awesome new site design in July, we believe. The blog feature is not part of the new design, and it is going away.  More information about this here:  Announcement: the blog feature is being deprecated topic link.  (Be sure to check out the new site design when it goes live!)

This blog page is going away, and will be gone when the site redesign goes live. Your blog here will be removed from the site.

So, if want to keep the information posted in your blog, you will need to copy this information someplace else on the site. If you have any questions how or where to do this, please feel free to get back to me, and I will try to assist.

It's pas midnight here, so i want to thank you for the book you wrote on my profile miss Annalyn. Mayb i will fall asleep faster this way.

Nah i'am joking, thanks for replying back :). 

I never finished reading the entire thread. As it's 54 pages long haha. I think after finishing my last response there, i kinda went away and never looked back cause of some important things happening in my life back then. Excuse me if i didn't respond to you after that. But i hoped the thread helped you on your paper :).

When i asked you how you were doing with your religion i was not expecting for you to say that you abandoned it by the way. The way you responded in the thread already convinced me you are a true belie(b)ver. And i would not have a chance to convince you. But i enjoy these conversations and i also enjoy to listen how others think. Its quite interesting.                                                                                I respect you for holding your ground. Everyone goes through a hard time now and then. I'am glad your faith helped you with that. Thats one thing that i envie, faith can give you strenght in some moments of your life. For example, the brother of a friend of mine died.  And it really made her depressed, but she always says that she will meet him after when her own life ends. Ofcourse i have a hard time believing that and thats what it makes it even harder. Because if a family member of mine dies, i just know i will never be able to see/meet or talk with that person.

Anyways that might be a little offtopic :P.

So christian college and a minor in bible huh? Well whatever suits your interest. But don't you worry, ill be here to throw some interesting scientific facts at you now and then. I'am studying for a medical degree. I always found the human body very interesting. There are lot of pictures arround where you can see a close-up of neurons and the universe. And how similar they look. You could not even compare human cells to planet earth. As the universe is so big, it makes Earth way smaller then one single cell we have on our arm.

Though a living cell in an human body has a purpose. Cant say that about our planet and everyone living on it. But for some reason every living creature protects itself and wants to live. So there must be something. But i just dont think its all just so we can enter Heaven and live in a paradise. 

What do you think the purpose is?

There is a lot to say and discuss, i see iam not being really organized with my typing. Sorry for that. 

To answer the 'Have you been giving the topic more thought' question. Yes i kinda think about it now and then. But i don't really talk about it with anyone else or something like that. As most people i know are atheist or weak believers. So you will be the person i come to if i wanna learn more.

Glad you are having fun at school and doing oke :).
