Report Curlybrace101's Profile

I don't know what to put here

Hello all! My name is Curly, and I have been watching anime ever since I was a kid, but I've only been tracking it since 2020. My favorite genres are Drama, Avant garde, Mystery, Suspense and Horror. I also have an affinity for your industry standard battle Shounen, although Seinen is my preference of the five demographics. My favorite themes are Psychological, Adult Cast, Organized Crime, High Stakes Game, and Detective. I also love coming of age shows. I don't prefer isekai, harem, sports, or romance, but there will always be exceptions. I watch just about everything.

I am a 19 year old girl and a university student majoring in English. I speak English and some Spanish. I'm more positive than I am negative. I find I am much happier focusing on the good parts rather than the bad. No anime is perfect but I still dish out 10s if I feel the flaws don't detract enough from what makes it fantastic.

Besides anime I am also really into video games and animation from anywhere else in the world. I only recently started tracking manga on here, so it is not perfectly up-to-date.

Movies aren't included in my favorite anime anymore, but when they were, Kiki's Delivery Service and A Silent Voice were inlcuded

It won't let me put my rating system under a spoiler tag for some reason, so here it is:

10: This anime goes above and beyond to do something spectacular, and is particularly special. Any flaws it has aren't strong enough to detract from this
9: This show also goes above and beyond, but it isn't quite as spectacular as a 10, or has a glaring flaw I can't ignore
8: A really good show. Either I have no issues with it, and it was generally good, or it was otherwise very impressive but I took issue with something.
7: A good show. I probably had a few decent criticisms of it, but I still undeniably liked it
6: Mixed feelings. It did stuff I didn't like at all, but other stuff I also did like. I don't like it that much overall, but I still got something out of it
5: Same as 6, but I liked it less. This is kind of a complete neutral. The good and the bad balance out.
4: I did not like this. It had a few things going for it, but overall the bad stuff just ruined it
3: I can get very little out of this show, but maybe there were a few good things
2: This show is very bad, with maybe like one redeeming quality
1: Something about this made me so viscerally offended I cannot give it any points for any good it has.

I don't rate shows I feel I am ill equipped to rate, mainly if I didn't fully understand it or I watched it a long time ago. I also often do not rate specials/OVAs/etc

Some games I like!

My taste in games is varied. This top ten has been accumulating since my childhood. I was a Nintendo kid, then an RPGMaker kid, and now I'm an adventure game adult. Here's my backlogg'd if you're interested

Honorable mentions include Your Turn To Die, just about every famous RPGMaker horror game ever, the Five Night's at Freddy's series, a bunch of other Pokemon entries, Fran Bow, and Undertale

It's a very fun and well done game, I like it even though I usually don't play strategy games because I usually overthink my strategies. And when I lose a battle I feel like I threw hours of gameplay out of the window. Yeah, experience is priceless, but I still prefer roguelike style experience gaining where I'm forced to react quickly instead of standing for long minutes deciding what to do. (You might think I'd like real time strategy then. Well, no because there are too many factors to consider in them in a tight time frame.)

Steamworld Heist is actually on sale on Steam now, so yeah, if you want to try it it's a good time. (Don't worry though, because it's a 2015 game so it gets discounted every month basically.)

It's about steampunk cowboy robots (fueled by steam obviously) who try to get water by invading enemy spaceships. Oh and by the way the Earth is in pieces, literally. It exploded into a million shards.

My initial theory was that he is an AI. But in the archives I found Tom Kwan's name who is a scientist. K can be him. However, it's also possible that the mixture of the two is true, and he is an AI made by Tom Kwan. Also, I can't be sure if he is a male anyway. Metroid proven that.

(Okay, it was a bit of a cheating because the programmer wanted to give something extra to players who complete the game under a ridiculously low time. So we got that cutscene. Not like I played the original Metroid games.)

Understandable. I have a similar case with Steamworld Heist. I haven't finished it yet (I started it years ago lol) but when I do I'll probably let it be. It's a turn based strategy game with some skill involvement as you have to aim before shooting. And to make it harder the characters' hands shake and the pattern is random. So it's very good but also stressful, as the penalty for defeat is losing half of your money.

Back to VLR I have a theory about K's identity. One of the secret documents mentioned a person whose name's initial is K. I hope I'll eventually finish this game to see if I was right.

Hey! I didn't make much progress, but played a bit of VLR today. And the Pantry room melts my brain. I only got the secret password so far. I had to check the game Wiki though because
I didn't find the escape code yet, I'm trying to figure out how can I put the water from the beaker into the containers. If I have to.

Well, it didn't have the WHOA factor I had the first time I watched Higurashi. I felt the ending of the first two arcs so far to be really really anticlimatic, with a feeling of "wait is THAT all? IS THAT ALL? I really needed more intrigue! You cannot leave me like that. I am confused but not enough like when I watched S1" I feel like Gou lacks something, and the fact that GOU had the potential to show more of the time loop Rika had but instead went to the safe territory showing what we saw in S1 with some variation, it is something that for me isn't very exciting.

But hey, I have hopes in the next arc when Rika and Satoko are teens, maybe my score could rise there, but so far S3 seems pretty weak.

Actually, I only said disappointing because many people think so. For me, it was more unexpected. Which isn't a bad thing.

Same. There are good romances, but very good ones are quite rare. So far Steins;Gate is the peak for me. One of the few anime that moved me. But be prepared, if you ever start watching it, you'll understand nothing until around ep 4-5, and episode 12 is where it gets serious. Also, the special episode is important. It fills the hole after the ending.
tinshard Nov 29, 7:40 AM
You finished Monster! How was it? Personally I found the final act at the town very exciting, even if the ending is a bit disappointing/confusing.

I see you're watching Nana. Is it good? It looks similar to Monster in terms of length and pace.

I definitely intend on checking out the visual novel, I've added it to my Steam <3 there's nothing I love more than a franchise with a tonne of lore and adjacent media! thanks for the Umineko shout, I saw it recommended on Steam. I'm so excited to delve deeper into this universe, it's so compelling!
velveteenvamp Nov 17, 4:54 AM
I am, finally! I've been wanting to for a while but couldn't find any time. :(

I am absolutely loving it so far! I can definitely see it becoming a fave: it ticks all of my boxes. I'm also happy to learn that it's part of a wider franchise and that there's a wealth of media to explore. I *love* things that seem cute but aren't, I love horror, gore, mysteries... it has all of that in spades! I have a day off today so I'm going to watch more and I'm so excited about it <3

Oh yeah, I adored Monster. I used to watch one episode per day before school each morning. It was great seeing the story play out in soap opera format, and it was so beautiful and thrilling.
Ultimate_Dude Nov 5, 7:01 AM
REALLY? I guess I straight up forgot about that one, since I've ALSO seen Monster and it DEFINITELY fits lol.
Ultimate_Dude Nov 4, 1:17 PM
Oh wow, I've never gotten a comment on my profile before! I actually completely agree; I'm not sure how I forgot about Ergo Proxy. I haven't seen NieA, but that one make sense too. All the ABe shows had the same vibe

Affinity says the opposite, but affinity behaves weirdly. We do have similar scores for many titles and both like suspense.

It's not so unpopular, many people on Steam say the same.

Definitely! So far I only been in the first AB room. I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out to ally or betray. I took into account many factors.

It was the first AB room, so the game expected me to ally. My partner said to betray. Maybe the game wanted to trick me into ally just to laugh in my face for my naivety. Or the opposite, it wanted me to betray to make me feel guilty. Then I thought about the scoring. If I ally, I take a huge risk. If I betray, I also take risk.

Finally I made up my mind and... Made the wrong decision.

I absolutely love it. I'm a fan of platformers in general and Cave Story got me hooked. I yet to try the multiplayer version, I downloaded it, joined the Discord server too, but didn't have the patience to try it because it sounds like a nightmare to get it work.

As for your question, I like surfing other people's profiles. And I not only search for matching anime and manga but also look at their friend list. I've found KirbyCoded's profile and you were the only person on his list, so that's how I found you.

And I forgot to mention last time I like 999 too. I have the Steam version, got all the endings on the first game and on my way with VLR. I really appreciate they put in hard mode, it was really annoying to get hints every time I exited a puzzle to check something. It felt like the game thinks I'm dumb.
tinshard Oct 27, 3:13 PM
Yes! I knew it! Cave Story! I discovered the game on Epic Games and it's just incredible. A true labor of love. I replayed it countless times, got the true ending, and now playing the randomizer with custom presets. I also played the Android port and even the TI calculator version on original hardware.
It’s time to ditch the text file.
