Hello Fellow Earth User... or whatever planet you might be from (being on that subject, Neptune is a pretty cool planet, right?)


I getting old here, been around for some time i guess, anyway, i love anime of course, always have and will, few media types can make me laugh and cry quite like a well written anime can. My favourite genre are probably romance and slice of life but i like most stuff really (especially a sad story!). I'm from the UK if it matters.

*WILL UPDATE THIS LATER!!! -last edit 01.01.2018

Top anime are:

1) Nagi no Asukara - Miuna is the best girl!!!!

2) Anohana

3) Tsuki ga Kirei

4) Hanasaku Iroha

5) Yuru Yuri

6) Something

 Okay these probably aren't my top but they are good enough!

UPDATE 2020:

Don't Judge my old reviews/ratings before 2017, i used to happily throw a kind 5 stars at anything and everything, same for reviews, i wrote/gave dumb and useless reviews, i have growns since 2011 (wow i been here almost 10 years!!!) and just can't be bothered to edit my history.


How i Rate shows (if you don't like it, i don't care):

5 stars - Highly entertainly, funny or interesting to watch ect

4 Stars - very good show, meeting the above standards to a lesser extent

3 Stars - Average show but likeable enough to watch, nothing new/special but still entertaining

2.5 Stars - I mentioned but score is it's generally a either average show which didn't appeal to me or it falls short of average but only slightly.

2 Stars - Boring or unappealing in  some way, generally i wouldn't have enjoyed the show and wouldn't recommend it

1 or less - Terrible show with either terrible trashy characters and a stupid plot in which it's more of a headache to watch than it's worth.

these scores are just my opinion of my level of enjoyment, genre's which don't appeal to me obviously wont score well despite they might be universally loved, it's just opinion baased. Again, ignore my older ratings, i was prone to give a "average" show i watched as one of my first anime's a 5 just because i liked it and it was new.


Side note:

NO BOOBS ALLOWED (they are but we say as such for Sakurako)

Hiya! It's been a little while. How have you been?

Hello Madoka,

No worries. I'm the same way. Meant to reply earlier, but have been focused with life. Almost a month ago, a close friend of mine passed away, so I have been dealing with the grief of that loss as well.

Yeah, I have been getting into some new Visual Novels lately and I remember the conversations we had about Aselia the Eternal and I think Seinarukana as well. Both games are classics and still some of my favorites. I enjoyed Seinarukana's gameplay a lot along with its characters even if the story does change around the background of how eternals operate compared to Aselia. Being able to travel to different worlds with a dimensional whale is a pretty fun ride.

For the VNs I'm into these days. Mainly have been a fan of the ones with dark/dread filled themes. Dead End Aegis last year was a major VN I read that was a psychologically very difficult and dread filled ride to get through. But it has 2 very cathardic endings that makes the dread pay off and see the main protagonist which I relate to a lot get a happy ending. Out of anyone she deserved the happy ending the most. And that in turn has gotten me into more VNs by Black Cyc such as Sadistic Blood and Gore Screaming Show. Both which also have been released in the last few years. Now I'm reading Tokyo Necro which has the best atmosphere and world building out of any Nitroplus VN I've read before. It also kinda feels like returning to my roots of reading VNs since Saya no Uta was one of the 1st VNs I read as well and getting that good Nitroplus experience.

On Violet Evergarden, yes it has a movie that pretty much serves for the series conclusion. There's also 2 ovas to watch aside from that, and one of them has one of the best songs and moments in the story, when the song "letter" is sung using lyrics from the letter Violet wrote. Absolutely! It easily is an anime I'll rewatch at least once every year. What was the saddest story to you? For me I think it was the soldier who tried to get home to his family and Maria who Violet was able to rescue long enough to get his feelings to write letters to his family. Though Ann's mother planning out letters to send to Ann on her birthday every year before dying is also a huge tearjerker episode. I cry just thinking about them, and it feels soul healing to think about them.

A few other hidden gems I discovered since we last talked are Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina and Lost Song. Have tried a few other anime, but none of them have really done it for me to get super invested. I worry if my standards for anime have gotten super high due to how incredible Violet Evergarden was, but Wandering Witch & Lost Song have gotten close to giving a similar feeling that makes an anime feel like a Masterpiece, though they don't quite reach it. It is still saying a lot since Violet to me is now the new Platinum Standard of Anime, while these 2 are Gold Standard so they're still pretty fantastic. Have been debating if I want to add one of them to my top 5 or not. They are absolutely in the top 20.

Wandering Witch for the world it creates, the animation is also some of the best I've ever seen, and the spell casting is incredible. Some of the best magic battles I've seen outside of Harry Potter. Then for Lost Song, it has a few characters that can change the enviornment or heal using their ability to sing. And some crazy stuff happens in there is all I'll say incase you haven't seen it yet. It has given me another fantastic soundtrack to listen to.

Another friend has recommended Tokyo Revengers, Spy X Family, and Bocchi the Rock to me, so I might check out some of those eventually. Do you double recommend any of them?

For other JRPGs, the main one I've been into for the most part is The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Series. I started with the Trails in the Sky games and there's 1 huge story that continues throughout several series of games. It feels incredibly epic and there isn't much else like it that I'm aware of. Though now that Trails from Zero & Azure have come out, I've switched to playing those since the arcs for those games take place between Sky and Cold Steel.

Then I've been jumping between several other JRPGs including Shin Megami Tensei V, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and Mary Skelter: Nightmares. Those are the main ones. Haven't finished any of them, though i've got solid playthroughs running in each.

What VNs and/or JRPGs have you been into recently if you've played any recently?

That's cool that you've also got a Steam Deck. I saw that Utawarerumono is compatible with the deck, and I've wanted to play the VNs for it since I loved the anime a lot and have heard it satisfies a similar niche that Aselia the Eternal & Seinarukana do.

Always glad to hear from you! No matter how long between replies. Glad to hear you're doing well. I'm still active enough where I'll get to replies. Even if it also takes a few months. XD

Hi Madoka, thanks for the comment and for following me back, it's nice to meet you too.

Well, you made some interesting points indeed. I am trying to update my profile but it took me such a very long time to think the ideas and find the images 'cause I haven't touched it since a few months ago. Anyways, I'm happy we have similar interests in common.

Also, sorry for the awaited response. I am having a great week, then I'll see you around~!

Hello Madoka. Hope that you have been doing well. Its crazy how long it has been and how the years fly by, but I was thinking about you as I returned here to make major updates to my profile and anime list and the long conversations we had years ago, and would certainly enjoy having new ones!

Think its fair to say our interests and tastes in anime have both changed and evolved over the years as we've seen more and changed as people.

Haven't kept up with a lot of recent anime as my new way of anime typically involves straming services such as Netflix or Hulu while I'm eating a meal. As a result I only see 1-2 episodes a day typically unless I'm in a binging mood. Generally am unable to watch a ton at once like I used to now that I'm a working adult rather than a young high school/college student that I was almost a decade ago.

I saw on your profile that you have a new rating system and that many of your past ratings are outdated from how you feel now. I understand that feeling. There are a lot of anime I thought were amazing years ago that I look back on, while many of them are still good, they aren't quite as amazing as I remembered from back then. 11 Eyes and Madoka Magica are prime examples for me. While still very enjoyable, now I more easily see a few flaws in them that prevent them from being full masterpieces in my eyes.

The anime that set a new standard for me and motivated me to adjust my entire rating system to account for it was Violet Evergarden. It dethroned Elfen Lied on my top 5 list as the #1 anime for me after Elfen Lied held that position for roughly a decade. I recall you also enjoy great emotional journeys such as Clannad and Angel Beats. Violet Evergarden will certainly not disappoint in that regard if you haven't seen it yet. I highly recommend it.

Other than that, I've also still read a lot of VNs and have been playing games in free time. Mostly JRPGs.

If Nagi no Asukura is still your number 1 favorite anime, what are the things you enjoy most about it? I'm curious to hear about that.
