YO thanks for accepting the random FR. Just stumbled upon your profile and found your taste in anime appealing. Gintama as #1 ayy? Makes me wanna finally resume watching it, it's been on-hold for me for well over a year. I only this past September came back onto MAL after like a year hiatus. Also I see u like Miyazaki u should watch Majo no Takkyuubin it was the first Ghibli I was as a kid I didn't even know it was anime or what anime was at the time. Also idk if you've gotten into any Isao Takahata
(RIP) works but Akage no Anne is one of my all time fav series, also love his Ghibli films Omoide Poroporo, Hotaru no Haka and Kaguya-hime no Monogatari.

Sorry for the super late reply. Its hard to break it down to just a few but I mostly like Hip-Hop as a genre the most.

MF DOOM is definitely my favorite rapper and I also like. Aesop Rock, OutKast, Killer Mike, Pharcyde, CunninLynguists, ATCQ, Jeru the Damaja, pretty much everyone from TDE, Action Bronson, Redman, Camp Lo, Cannibal Ox, Eightball and MJG, Common, De La Soul, Danny Brown, and on and on it goes.

I like Industrial sounding stuff too. Really have grown to like Death Grips, Dalek, and especially Coil.

I also like Creedance Cleerwater Revival, Janelle Monae, D'Angelo, GY!BE, My Bloody Valentine, Nuetral Milk Hotel, Tame Impala, Spirtualized, Queens of the Stone Age amongst many other groups

There's my RYM which is a lot more in depth if you're interested.

I can say that looking at your profile it looks like we have very similar music tastes

Ah, sry for the late response.

I found Ultra Heaven to be a rather engaging read. It was all-around enjoyable for the most part, but as a whole I'm not sure whether I actually "like" it or not. For me it is not very memorable and unfortunately doesn't leave that much of an impact. Conceptually, it is "interesting" to say the least, and in regards to presentation, it's extremely avant garde when it comes down to it. I don't know if I'm really into it though. :)

thanks very much, i really the artwork you got for your tiles.

Any anime that you think will be good next season?
Konakana Jul 18, 2017 7:46 PM
Same :)

Yeah, it looks like we both share some favorites. When I write analysis, it's usually just a constant stream of ideas, the connections, symbols, patterns and things I notice and try to write down. My analyses are never really "complete" as I just update them once in a while as my thoughts change and I notice more. Usually it takes a bit of motivation to actually get me to write something for a series, but once I get into it, I guess I can write some interesting stuff. I wrote something for Erin because I didn't think anyone else had really broken it up the way I did yet and it was fun to piece together, and I wrote something for Texhnolyze because I had already explained it to a good number of people and wanted to demonstrate how I think it's optimistic to some degree. I hope to cover more titles eventually, though I usually like to try and know them extremely well before doing so.

As for my scores, I was trying to loosen them up a bit as they had been consistently strict in the past. I usually remove all of them once in a while to re-score. My mean score had always been on the lower end previously because I purposefully limited my higher scores so I would only have a certain number of higher scores. If I decided I would only have ten 9s for example, then if an eleventh 9 came along, I would have to move one down to an 8. This way my list had helped to truly emphasize the titles I valued. I was considering removing the limitation so right now, my scores are a bit looser.

Lol, after re-reading Nausicaa a while back, it shot up to the top of my list. I definitely regard it as the greatest thing I have encountered in the entirely of anime and manga thus far, and I doubt that anything here will surpass it anytime soon. If you haven't already, and are very much interested in the series, then I have collected some links that can help truly decipher how great the saga is. Absolutely solid across the board in its story, characterization, artwork, world building, scale and scope and incredible thematic exploration touching upon everything from war to religion to politics to environmentalism to nihilism and philosophy and etc, coupled with being densely layered and open to interpretation regarding the ending and such allows me to regard it as nothing other than the very best.

Something I find incredibly interesting about Nausicaa is with one of its ideas. I feel that the idea in Nausicaa of “transcending intention” as with the Ohmu being the foundations of the new forest and becoming more than seedbeds in attaining intelligence and compassion, the mold which had resided within the Dorok scientists' containers, going beyond what they had intended it to do in ravaging their lands, Ohma, built as an artificial death god for destruction, becoming more than such as he transcends his intention into a "fine person" by the end of the story, the modified humans, initially planned as tools to bring about the revival of the ancients, betraying the plan and going beyond their programming, and of course the entire of ecosystem of the Sea of Corruption, the Crypt and ancients being unable to predict the degree in which it would evolve, actually applies not only to life in its entirety, but even interpretations of storytelling as a whole. What is interesting to note is how, while Nausicaa herself isn’t especially concerned with religion, she still gets religious interpretation applied onto her in the story such as her fulfilling a prophecy or being hailed as a messiah and such. The characters in the series interpret her journey in various ways and I think that this extends to how the “reader” interprets the series themselves. Even if Miyazaki himself, did not specifically “intend” for his story to fulfill certain meaning that an interpreter may lay upon it, it does not mean that series itself cannot transcend this intention. This would apply not only to this series in particular actually, but to literature as a whole, the meaning of a work transcending what the author had intended it to be. Even for Miyazaki himself, Nausicaa seems to have transcended his intentions, sending him off on his own personal journey, changing his values and philosophies and such. At first it was intended to be just a girl and a valley and the threat of war, yet the series transcends this to become a sweeping epic and laying upon a grand thesis concerning life in its entirety. In writing the series, Miyazaki himself even changed, writing himself out of Marxism and gaining different perspectives of the world around him, something he did not intend to do and in this way, the series goes beyond what it was intended to do. I find the potential spiritual ties to the story to be particularly interesting, whether Miyazaki consciously intended them or not. Pertaining to Christianity, the 7 Days of Fire kind of paralleling the 7 Days of Creation in bible, except in this sense, it is ironic because yes, the new world was created within these 7 days, yet the foundation is laid at the cost of the destruction of the old world. Also, the obvious potential link to the Garden of Eden with the garden in the series, except rather than committing sin and being forcefully kicked out Eden as humanity did, Nausicaa consciously chooses to live with the suffering. Also, it may be a stretch, but relating to the story of Noah’s Ark in which God sent waves to batter the lands and cleanse the world to bring upon a new world, this can kind of be seen with the Crypt, the ancients essentially acting as “God” in a sense, the Ohmu’s stampede form the Daikaishou which means “Great Tidal Wave” to assist in spreading the forest and accelerating the purification process. The Ark that Noah builds was supposed to carry over humanity and species to the next world and this can be seen in the Crypt in a sense, essentially a tomb to bring various species and technology into the New World. It is ironic in Nausicaa though because she ends up denying a second chance for the ancients however. Also, Nausicaa’s name meaning, “Burner of Ships,” taking this story into account, if by “Ship” we mean the Ark as in Noah’s Ark, then Nausicaa’s name would literally mean the "Burner of the Crypt," describing the ending of the manga. While Nausicaa can obviously parallel messianic figures like Jesus Christ himself in a sense, she can also kind of go hand in hand with the Buddha’s development, essentially both of them being born into “nobility,” eventually later leaving their kingdoms and becoming more aware of the vast pain and suffering of the world, and attaining “enlightenment” or an epiphany under a tree, although in the case of Nausicaa, it’s not simply a tree, but an entire forest. Anyhow, whether Miyazaki intended all of this or not, I find it funny how part of the focus of Nausicaa is the idea of “transcending intention,” which describes how reader can look upon the series and conjure interpretations which may transcend what Miyazaki himself may have or have not intended. Through such interpretation in itself, the series evolves beyond what may have been planned. So in a sense, Nausicaa even speaks its themes, not only within the context of life and its own story, but in its entire structure and for the interpretation of literature in itself. In this way, the series transcends was it was supposed to be, literally. :)

I have more written out regarding Nausicaa as I was planning to submit a "review" for it, but recently I had been thinking about stopping because I want to forget everything I uncovered about it and rediscover it, hopefully learning even more the next time.
