About Riptos

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.

My Current Champion Pool

My Mains are probably:

I'm a fan of the Touhou games as well, I picked them up a year or three ago in college and they are fiendishly hard for an old dude such as myself. I honestly dont know how people do it so perfectly on those Youtube videos I see online.

For anyone who is interested, my Youtube account is .

I'm always happy to add friends and hopefully pick up some subs for my Anime OST's and the odd Gameplay videos I have on my channel.

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 =)

I very much enjoyed your School Days character discussion. Other than the fact that I still think Sekai should have known at least a little that there was a chance of him betraying her. Other than that, I find no faults in your analysis. Setsuna was my favorite anime character too, haven't played the game but I have been meaning to.

Well to each their own. The reason it deserves a 1 in my mind, is because of the lack of characterization for any character and a plot that isn't fully used up to its potential. It instead opted for a generic harem that didn't even manage to do that right. Out of curiosity, what other animes would you say is a real howler? Also nice boat.

True, especially since none of the comic book characters have ever made a proper appearance in any other show or game since (Sonic Spinball aside). It really surprises me that so many people didn't think the show aged well, when you compare it to such series as the Super Mario Brother's Super Show, it out classes it by leaps and bounds.

Tails huh? Well I can say this for sure, that although we both seem to be long time Sonic fans, we seem to be the polar opposites when it comes to opinions on the cast. Guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. XD

Oh gosh, Sonic 06, I even enjoyed the much less hyped Sonic Riders more than that game. The production and story were pretty okay, say for a few plot holes here and there, but since they rushed it out to meet a deadline, really showed. They almost killed it like they did with Sonic X-treme on the Saturn. :(

Since you seem to enjoy the comics, have you been reading the "Sonic: Super Special" editions?

When it comes to Sonic Heroes though, sometimes I feel like I am the only person on the planet who actually liked that game. It did have it's fair share of glitches, but what I did love about it, was how in concentrated more on gameplay than it did on story. 3D Sonic games at that time, hadn't really don't that.

So what are your thoughts on Sonic Boom (TV Show and games)?

Oh and I'm sure you've heard the news!

This makes me so happy! :')

Hey there, thanks for the comment. And yes I have seen SatAM. In fact to this day it still leaves me with a bitter feeling as it got cancelled before we got a second season. Would have loved to see what they were going to do with Metal Sonic (and Snively) as the new enemy. At least that's what I heard those glowing red eyes belonged to.

Awww come on dude! It's all about Amy! Ha! Truthfully though I know Sally has a cult following among Sonic fan, but I can't help but like Amy's determination. She can get naggy at times, which is why so many Sonic fans seem to dislike her, but I love how she doesn't play the damsel in distress and can hold her own.

Nice to meet a fellow old school Sonic fan by the way, don't see that on MAL much.

What makes G-Senjou such a good VN? I was planning on playing that or Cross Channel for my next VN..

midnightblade | 07-06-14, 3:23 PM
Thanks for replying to my Muv Luv thread. Feel free to post spoilers with spoiler tag or on my profile!!

Sumika was really cute though. I even liked her in the Extra world too, she has a charming funny/sweet personality and she was the source of a lot of comedic moments in Extra.. Her stuff from Alternative is really sad

HaXXspetten | 06-25-14, 9:58 AM
it's a worthwile tradeoff that everyone needs to do at some point

How is Soul Eater Not so far? I'm only about 6 episodes away from completing the Soul Eater Blu Ray, but I'm trying to decide if NOT is worth watching though.
