I see. It seems as though you have 'disappeared' and is no longer active on this site.

I am sorry for the inconvenience. I wasn't feeling very well when I left this site temporarily.

I found out that most of the bizzare things existed in the world of Mushishi are often taken from traditional folktales, philosophies, myths, cultures and superstitious belief in Japan and projected it through mushi in a sense that it emphasized it's core message aka 'moral lesson' upon the relationship between human and nature. I believed you have heard before about people talked about their near death experience when they saw 'whiteness' and of crossing an unknown bridge. In a sense, it is believed to be connected between the living and the dead. By walking to the other side of it, it mean your spirit had left your body, thus you have departed to the afterlife. It used 'kouki' to represent as such. Ginko embodied both the elements of yin and yang throughout his lifetime. He jokingly mocked that he will someday 'disappeared' when he talked to Tanyuu, seemingly foreshadowed the similar fate he may shared with his master, the same person who saved him by telling him to close one of his eyes when they were being consumed by the darkness.

Let's get straight to the point. I enjoyed the analogy made through the human and nature relationship such that it took advantage of it's atmosphere and surrounding to emphasized on it's core message aka 'life lesson'. Most of them are very metaphorical and symbolic such that it can be looked at the other way round through characters' interaction. The production values on Zoku Shou S1 was phenomenal, to the point it felt so real. Some of the best atmosphere in audiovisual medium I ever watched. It was very detailed of it's background, surreal, yet grounded in reality, such that it felt eerie to the point I was drawn into it. It is hard to imagine a series about life can be this enthralling, yet it never felt forceful in delivering some of the best human interaction I had ever seen in anime, despite that they were rather forgettable, notably in using similar designs as such. However, people of similar looks do exist in real life, so it is very reflective of our world, such that we could often relate to certain things we have experienced in our life. We forget about the characters. That's because both 'we' and the characters move on in life as well. I love Ginko too. Despite what appeared to be a very considerate and compassionate man, turned out to be the biggest swindler who ripped off the doctor of his money, just because he can't see the mushi. I love their relationship, for someone who treasures little things and have interest in trading. When Ginko bargained about high quality collection and tried to convince the doctor, I laughed my ass off. It was this brief moment I was so drawn into their relationship, such that I wanted to see them interact with each other again. By the way, Ginko can be hilarious too. I love the scene when he appeared from out of nowhere inside the mud, surprised a man, and casually said "I'm not anyone suspicious". xD

I love more Mushishi too. However, I like that it ended too. That's because it makes me treasure it even more than before. :)

How do you update your list without being active on this site?

How is life? It seems that you have exposed yourself to the real world judging from the lack of activeness in this site nowadays.

Mind sharing your feelings/thoughts about Mushishi?

Only a handful of people actually completed Tetris the Grandmaster 3. All of them were Japanese, except for one American which got into the news. A real accomplishment.

Yeah, eye contacts are hard for me too, especially how you basically have to put your finger on your eyeball. Also, having eye contact with another person can be hard at first too. ;) Well, I guess you won't feel comfortable talking to me until we have about 5 hours worth of conversations. :P

Oh okay, I thought you were gonna say "well yeah, we usually complete calculus courses roughly by age 12, your friend is behind by a few years". xD Hmm, maybe the stereotype is from Polish people committing crimes in other countries? Or confusing all eastern Europeans for Russians? People watch too many movies with bad Polish stereotypes?

So what do you think should be done about it? Should health care and universities not be "free" so they are valued more? You don't really need to go to university to be "smart" anyway. Most things I've learned were on my own. I did take Japanese 101 in college, although I never moved up from there due to higher classes not being a requirement. I think of the best ways to learn Japanese is to watch a Japanese show or movie without subtitles. Plus, talking to someone else who speaks the language is better yet.

Oh good, since you also have parents, I can narrow down your species. You are not a clone nor A.I. Nor are you Anakin Skywalker who only had a mom. Lol. We haven't talked to each other yet due to our location, not knowing of each other's existence, your lack of eye contact, possible resistance to commenting, space, time, location, and most importantly, destiny.

Interesting, I have never met someone who has surfed on a bed before, let alone doing it while on MAL. Do you perhaps have a water bed?

Yeah, GreenSoap is not only a swell guy, but he's spending months working on showing me his video game collection, just for me! :D Plus, he's working on some amazing Hunter x Hunter youtube video, YEARS IN THE MAKING! :O There are some theories from the GreenSoap fan community that he's just being lazy, but I figured that he's such a hardcore HxH fan that he's living the same work ethic as Togashi, so he can really understand what the series is all about.

Washington you say? Did you look at a map or something? Are you sure it's not Alaska, the Canadian state? ;) Washington state really is a beautiful state, some people mistake the mountains for the Swiss Alps, it's that good. Although culturally I don't find it as interesting as the east coast states. The beaches are nice too, but they aren't always warm. It's more so the scenery and atmosphere that makes them great. What I don't like about Washington and basically all the other coast states (California, Oregon, Florida, New York, and so on) is the fake elitism that's here. I should note that I'm only talking about the major cities like Seattle or NYC. The middle of the states are usually okay. Americans in the big cities the coast give the country a bad rap. They think they know everything and preach to the rest of us how to run our lives. They basically believe that people in "fly-over country" are all dumb rednecks who can't think for themselves. Meanwhile most of them probably can't change a tire or name who the 2nd President was. But if you come to America and avoid those kinds of people, you will likely meet some of the most geniue people ever. Not left wingers or right wingers, just normal people who want to live life, and those people are what make America great. I think I would like to move out of Washington state because it's very expensive to live here, although I don't know where yet. Poland is probably cheaper lol.

You should check out Tetris the Grandmaster series, the speed of it is absolutely insane. In fact, if you get at a high enough level, all the blocks become invisible! O_O

Yeah I've been to a lot of conventions, I even met some voice actors. No joke, the entire FMA cast panel high fived me, although that's not too hard of an accomplishment if you stand near the door they are leaving. xD

To you, what makes talking to someone online different than in real life? If I came up to you randomly and said the same exact things I've said so far, you probably wouldn't like it. Why do you think that is? That's a question I think everyone should think about.

Memories and Escaflowne are separate entities, although they came out a year apart from each other and have the same composer. Btw Escaflowne was done by Sunrise, so the same crew who did Cowboy Bebop worked on it. Although I think you gave Cowboy Bebop a 5?

That's interesting. I've heard many mixed things about Poland. In real life every Pole I met was nice to me, even quite intellgent. By intellgent I mean being the best in my small town at the local chess league, and finishing calculus classes at age 14. (I'm not sure if that's normal in Poland but here that's considered smart). Anyway, it seems that Poland kinda has a bad reputation here and in Western Europe because of their crime levels and being a former eastern bloc country. I've heard both ways that Poland is full of crime, while at the same time "is the best country to raise a child due to safeness" so I'm not actually sure about that. I would like to visit someday though.

I highly doubt that the health care and public universities are actually "free". Don't you have for it via taxes? I highly doubt that the doctors and teachers work for free. Also if everyone can just go to a university for free then what is the point of it? Wouldn't that just make it high school 2.0? ...and if everyone goes to university doesn't that defeat the purpose of going to one, because you go to gain skills specific for a career, and to be ahead of everyone else competing for your career? But everyone goes to university. So you're not ahead. So you probably have to go to an even higher education just to get ahead. Why not just teach this stuff in high school? xD I'm just thinking about what's going through my mind, trying to figure out how the system works over there.

Where am I from? That's quite the fascinating question. I guess I should look at my location, or point of origin. I came from my parents, who came from their parents. who came from their parents, and so on through the generations to the genesis of mankind. Some debate whether we evolved or were just created by a higher being but I wasn't actually there so I don't know the answer to that. If you mean where am I from on this website, I am from AbhLeaderKrelian, who's page is clickable via the name. If you are asking at what location am I writing this from, the answer to that would be my "bedroom". I don't always write from here but it seems to be common for most MAL users to write from a bedroom. Although for better or for worse they do not write from my bedroom. I usually write these messages while sitting down at my desk (although I'm not sitting on the desk, I sit on a chair next to the desk) or if I'm feeling in a state of relaxment, whether mentally or physically, I sit on my bed, although I've found that it takes longer to write replies out when doing so. (Like this one!) If you are asking where I found you, the answer is I saw your comment on GreenSoap's page, who is a real cool dude. Why was I on GreenSoap's page? Because I ran out of soap and needed more. You probably are pondering as to why I wrote so much for such a simple question, I guess I should really tell you...

AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Well, I live in the USA, though funny enough the closest major city to me is Vancouver, Canada.

Do any of those answer your question? ^^

and yes I've been to Europe, so I know what it's like there.

I dislike the moblie version of Tetris because the controls are horrendous. Probably the best all around version of the game right now is Puyo Puyo Tetris, which is the closest thing we're getting to a Tetris anime lol.

The convention was fun! I've been to different conventions since 2011, and some are hit or miss. The best thing about the convention is meeting other anime fans and even becoming friends with them. They can be super busy though if it's a popular convention, so if you ever go to one, be sure to come early! You can also buy anime merch and video games. Are there any big anime conventions in Poland?

Escaflowne felt more like a fantasy to me. It is a science fiction story but the world of Gaia seems closer to a fairy tale than something from Star Wars. I already said so in the last comment, but Memories really is amazing as well, and it's a 3 episode movie which Yoko Kanno also did the music for. There's a song called Chorale that sounds right out of Cowboy Bebop.

Btw, what's it like to live in Poland? Do you like it and how does it compare to other European countries? I know it's more affordable to live in compared to western European countries.
AbhLeaderKrelian Aug 13, 1:04 AM
Lol... I knew that! ;) Or did I? Maybe I just suddenly wanted to change the topic to a different anime? Eh? xD

It seems that all the Bleach fans hate at what the series has become... it doesn't even remove the stains off my clothes anymore! How else am I going to clean the Naruto off my One Piece?

Have I seen any Gems? Well, I was playing Columns on the Sega Genesis, but those disappear! ;_; (but that's the point of the game lol)

I went to an anime convention recently and rewatched the first few episodes of Escaflowne and watched all 3 parts of Memories from 1995. I didn't see either on your list and I highly recommend both! Yoko Kanno did music for both.

I would recommend some manga but you may not like it cause it's manga...
AbhLeaderKrelian Aug 12, 3:00 PM
Oh okay, I think it's beautifully done. ^^

Mononoke is probably my favorite Ghibli movie.

So what anime/manga are you into right now? It seems you didn't like Bleach too much! xD
AbhLeaderKrelian Aug 12, 2:43 PM
Who is your profile picture? Was it drawn by Yoshitaka Amano?
GreenSoap Aug 12, 6:46 AM
yes!
GreenSoap Aug 3, 5:48 PM
idk maybe. I'm very selective with the kinda Jap music I listen to now, like I can't really handle a lot of anime openings anymore, idk why but a many of them got kinda cringey for me. Have you ever had that? o:

Btw, we should play more Smite together again ^^
hysterical_ Jul 31, 9:39 AM
It is very depending on the series. I find that I tend to skip them only if they do not serve any purpose of being considered as an opening and ending themes from how it set up the overall mood for me to get myself into. It is important for me to be in a right mood before getting into the main story. Opening and ending themes are, for the most part, served for that very purpose.
hysterical_ Jul 29, 12:03 AM
When you watch anime, do you skip the opening and ending themes?
