About Archaeon














Yes, there is a club for The Geek Show here on MAL, and someday it will be used for more than just updates.

Firstly, my profile picture is of The Dude from the Coen Brother's movie "The Big Lebowski". It is not Jesus.

It's a bit dusty around here so I think it's time I did a bit of Spring cleaning.

I apologise for the lack of reviews. Life and work got in the way of writing for quite a while, but I should finally be more productive on that front very soon (barring any of my trademark pratfalls).

Anyway, my two year transitionary period is almost over so I'll try to be more active here on MAL. As ever I'm happy to talk about anime and manga with everyone - discussions are always welcome as long as they're rational, logical, coherent and preferably in english (I've nothing against other languages, I just don't speak them that well).

If you wish to have a go at me - either as a comment or as part of a discussion - then please be creative. You have an imagination so use it - there's no need for foul language. Creating a well-turned insult is an art that is sadly dying so please make an effort.

FRIENDS REQUESTS

I do not, and will never accept a random request from anyone. If you want me to accept you as a friend then we should have had at least one meaningful conversation. This does not include one or two comments on my profile, a short discussion about the weather, a chat about nothing in particular, etc.

And for those of you who miss the insults, here's a video to amuse you.

WARNING: do not watch this video if you're easily offended by any sort of criticism.



And remember - pizza is not a vegetable.

Are you a myanimelist Jesus?

I'd just like to say that I see you as one of the best reviewers on here. Thanks for putting out some rather great reviews.

You mention in your Tears to Tiara review that The Chronicles of Prydain is among your top ten fantasy books. As someone who grew up reading those novels I must ask, what are the others? I could do with recommendations for similar books since i find most mainstream fantasy titles quite off-putting to say the least.
Also your Tears to Tiara review is easily my favourite. It's extremely pleasant to see someone appreciating such an underrated anime.

I actually haven't heard about in detail anything you mentioned there, although I did look them up. Your knowledge about this stuff runs very deep.


I think there's a difference between naturally-placed... sex, or nudity, and something thrown in for titillation. The former, along with the depiction of mature and/or functional relationships, seems to be incredibly difficult for anime and video games in particular. I'm trying to think of some examples to make my point, and I'm at a total loss at the moment. Faye Valentine, I guess. She has sex appeal, but as I recall was never put into a position which drew specific attention to that for the point of appealing to the viewer. Essentially, if it isn't meant to be necessarily 'entertaining' or draw appeal, I wouldn't consider it 'fanservice', and wouldn't consider it an issue.


"Because of fear of failure, lack of revenue and more, studios are afraid of experimentation and original content - which is why we see so many manga and light novel adaptations. The sad part is that it doesn't have to be that way, but nothing will change until studios and manga publishers - especially the likes of Shounen Jump - begin to realise that anime and manga are a global market now, and becuse of the internet Japanese youths are far more worldly than they think. A fundamental change is long overdue, but Western media outlets unfortunately do littel to helpd bring tis about."


How long do you think it's going to be before we see this sort of change? This fall you mentioned after things reach some critical mass? And regardless of whether things do shift to become more welcome to experimentation, does that mean we'll see less sexualisation, when it's been proven to do so well? It seems like smaller studios would be the answer, like the music indies of the 80s and 90s, but with animation being so expensive, I don't think they're going to be popping up any time soon.


Feel free to 'drag on', if you like. I have no issues with walls of text. I like reading. (: I like to hear what you have to say, as well.

What's your take on fanservice? Some see it as an integral, or perhaps inseparable part of anime, for better or worse. I myself believe that it shouldn't be accepted as 'only natural', and that it can ruin otherwise wonderful shows. One of my favourites was irrevocably marred by fanservice, and it was a total shame. I have no issue with porn/hentai, or even ecchi stuff, so long as it doesn't make its way into 'serious' shows, or anything which wants to be taken seriously.


The only exception which I can think of would be Baka and Test, which I consider a well-done deconstruction of anime itself.

"Firstly, my profile picture is of The Dude from the Coen Brother's movie "The Big Lebowski". It is not Jesus."
It was due to this, that I was lead to see the Big Lebowski, which I came to enjoy alot, and found I had seen it before, when I was much younger.
Thanks, Dude. : ]

Private-Oneechan | 05-01-15, 7:54 PM
what made you give aria the origination a 10? is it that good?

ClinT- | 05-01-15, 8:51 AM
I think everything you said is very relative, however, tnx for answering.

KanadeSong | 04-30-15, 12:07 AM
I'll have to say that your reviews are quite well-written, despite the fact that I strongly disagree with many of them.

MatijaxD | 04-27-15, 3:07 PM
Love your reviews, keep up the good work!
I'm glad that you like Yowapeda, second season is even better so have fun.

ClinT- | 04-26-15, 5:48 PM
Soooooo, why did you think Code Geass deserves just a 6 ? Just asking.

Tsugunai | 04-25-15, 6:31 PM
your review of Ankoku Shinwa was pretty funny.
