Well it's finally time to edit the old profile again.
I'm a slightly older anime fan than the average member here but I have a fondness for mostly new/newish anime. By that I mean generally Post 2000 art/story style. I suppose you could say I'm a sucker for the moe trap that most anime producers are taking full advantage of these days.
I like romance anime, especially if that is compounded with a good plot. I am always looking for something to make me cry and feel human which for all intents and purposes is how I remember sometimes. My favourites list will attest to that at the moment. I strongly believe that the best drama and romance writer is Jun Maeda and I hope he comes back to work on his next project soon.
Also I like harem anime, yes I'm sure that has made some of you click off the page but hear me out. I dont like ALL harem anime, there has to feel like there is some likable characters in there and at least a semi strong protaganist which of course I understand doesnt happen alot. However the genre can be done really well. I'd argue things like Kanon and Clannad may not be a harem per se as it looks like there is no romantic potential with alot of routes taken but some people would disagree. I believe that harem anime should take Amagami SS's example and give each girl some screen time as the protaganist takes their heart. I think it's a great idea as it stops people like myself (I admit it) getting a bit butthurt when cliche characters get picked just because they were seen first by the lead. Also a big fan of loli characters as I'm sure my favourite characters will attest to. Nothing quite like a bit of DFC in anime, I can't get enough of it if the character is sufficiently moe or well developed (Character wise, not chest wise lol)
I've been playing Visual Novels for the last few years as well. I have played alot of the Key games though with the exception of Little Busters, I watched the anime adaptions first. However at the turn of 2012 I finally played Little Busters and I really feel the game has changed the way I look at my friends. Anime has directed my life in small ways in the past, though nothing has affected me as much as this game has. Recently I have been playing through an even newer Key work in the shape of Rewrite and it has proven to be fantastic as well. An adaption of that a few years down the line could be an absolute winner if done properly.
I still play regular games on the PC via Steam so if you want to see an old guy get pummeled by 12 year olds on Call of Duty or something, feel free to ask me for my Steam ID. I play games such as Civilisation V, Counterstrike: GO, Red Alert 3, Supreme Commander 2 and Command and Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath. (Yes the geek factor keeps rising lol)
My current big thing at the moment is League of Legends. It's good for me simply because I don't have to grind on it constantly in order to progress in the game like most things. You can go on for one game and not really lose out over the people who spend whole days playing it.
Well I'm sure I have bored you enough, if you have read this far, drop a comment or two and I'll have a chat with you. Always happy to get more friends on here, especially ones with good Anime Compatability =)
