For my detailed thoughts on anime, check out my site, updated pretty frequently. Eventually I will have all of my current Completed list anime thoughts on my site- but that won't be for a while lol. Anyways, here it is: http://animehikarijake.blogspot.com/
I'm an anime fan who is starting to lose interest in anime. And life. That's not a suicidal thought (and if you wish that it was then you are a jackass. High five? Come at me, bro
), I just literally don't know what I'm doing with my life. But yeah... I like anime. I don't read much manga other than Berserk tbh. Uhh and I'll occasionally play video games and draw when I have spare time. I am also a sorta, kind-of fan of visual novels (mostly just TYPE-MOON and Key tho), but not so much anymore as they can't seem to hold my interest. If you have any VNs with great pacing and characters, then please, tell me about them!
I'm not all that interesting or fun in reality, but reality sucks so who cares (well, that's just my opinion... if you like reality, then good for you! I wish I had your life!! XD). Well, that and I very highly doubt I'll meet anyone from this site in reality in the first place, so it really doesn't matter... let me get to the point: I think (hope?) I'm a fairly okay guy on MAL, but not very much so in reality cause I'm shy as hell, and I'm not even sure why I brought that up in the first place, yadda yadda yadda, blah blah, I like anime, OH and gimme another five, mah boi
Heheheh... I am so off-topic...
If you like anime, and we have a decent anime compatibility (or even if we don't), and you would like to talk about anime with me (which I am always happy to do!), then feel free to drop a comment in my comments section!
Btw, dunno where to add this so I'll just put it here: in case you are wondering about my age, I'll say this: I am in high school. Maybe younger than you may think. I dunno lol
"The world is beautiful. Even if you’re full of tears and sadness, open your eyes. Do what you want to do. Be what you want to be. Find friends. Don’t be in a hurry to grow up. Take your time." ~ Ichinose Kotomi’s parents (Clannad)
"No matter how cold and distant people may become, on the inside something warm and precious always remains, something that never changes. To me, that’s what family is like." ~ Sakagami Tomoyo (Clannad)
"I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant... It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are." ~ Mewtwo (Pokemon: The First Movie)
''We do have a lot in common...Maybe if we started looking at what's the same, instead of always looking at what's different, well, who knows?'' ~ Meowth (Damn, Pokemon: The First Movie had some really meaningful quotes. Oh, how Pokemon has fallen...)
"If you're always worried about crushing the ants beneath you... you won't be able to walk." ~ Guts (Berserk)
"I'd forgotten. It's just a lump of iron I attached so I could beat up my enemies. She slipped right through. I guess even if you force back what was lost, it still won't be the way it was." ~ Guts (Berserk)
"I think you're right. I'm 'performing.' I want people to like me. I want to have friends. But I'm socially inept, so when I thought, 'What can I do to help myself?' the answer I got was, 'Let's try liking everyone.' That made it a little easier to perform." ~ Satoru Fujinuma (Erased)
“Often I wonder when it was that our schools forgot the true meaning of ‘study’, something which is now so often misunderstood by teachers and parents. Learning ought to be both stimulating and entertaining.” ~ Tatsuya Egawa (author of Golden Boy)
"You have grown strong, Shirou. ...No, that is wrong. You were strong from the start." ~ Saber (Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel Route)
"I was not wrong." ~ Emiya Shirou (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works Route)
"I shall grieve, and I shall weep. But I shall never regret." ~ Iskandar, King of Conquerors (Fate/Zero)
“To a hikikomori, winter is painful because everything feels cold, frozen over, and lonely. To a hikikomori, spring is also painful because everyone is in a good mood and therefore enviable. Summer, of course, is especially painful...” ~ Tatsuhiko Takimoto (author of Welcome to the N.H.K!)
"I don't want to regret anything. I want to make all the tragedies that happened into meaningful things by believing that my path is right." ~ Emiya Shirou (Fate/stay night)
"That's right! I admired his desire to save people because it was beautiful! But none of that feeling is my own! What else can you call it but hypocrisy?! I was driven by my obsessive need to help someone. I kept running, neither noticing the pain nor how wrong I was! But it's all a fake. Such hypocrisy can not save anything. No, first of all, I didn't even know what I wanted to save!" ~ Archer (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works route)
"The world isn't perfect. But it's there for us, doing the best it can. That's what makes it so damn beautiful." ~ Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist)
"I'd kind of like to become a really weird pianist." ~ Arima Kousei (Your lie in April)
"Someday my memories will fade... and her voice, her actions, I might forget them as well, but I will always remember that I loved Saber." ~ Emiya Shirou (Fate/stay night: Fate Route)
"True, I've given up on the real world, however I haven't given up on myself. The world doesn't get to decide whether my life is boring, fun, or ordinary because that's my decision to make. As long as I have the will, nothing is impossible." ~ Keima Katsuragi (The World God Only Knows)
"Hey, I'm totally an adult! I bitch and whine, lie through my teeth, and do things that are unfair." - Hachiman Hikigaya (Oregairu/SNAFU)
"I’m the one who deserved to be hit! Not you! I’m a coward! I’m dishonest! I’m sneaky! And a wimp!" ~ Shinji Ikari (NGE)
"And there you go. You heard her, Iri. Our Heroic Spirit thinks a battlefield to be something better than Hell. What a joke. It's Hell itself. There is no hope on a battlefield. There is nothing but unspeakable despair. Just a crime we call victory, paid for by the pain of the defeated. But humanity has never recognized this truth. And the reason is that, in every era, a dazzling hero has blinded the people with their legends, and kept them from seeing the evil of bloodshed. True human nature has not advanced a step beyond the Stone Age." ~ Emiya Kiritsugu (Fate/Zero)
"A sword is a weapon. The art of swordsmanship is learning how to kill. That is the truth. What Miss Kaoru says is sweet and innocent talk that only those whose hands have never been stained with the blood of men can believe. But, to tell you the truth, I much prefer Miss Kaoru’s sweet and innocent talk over the truth. Indeed I do." ~ Himura Kenshin (Rurouni Kenshin)
"Upon researching the concept of demons, I believe that, among all life, humans are the closest thing to it. " ~ Migi (Parasyte -the maxim-)
*conversation from End of Evangelion* Shinji: "But you're not me. You don’t know what I have to go through. You don’t understand!" Misato: "So fucking what if I’m not you?! That doesn’t mean its okay for you to give up! If you do, I’ll never forgive you as long as I live. God knows I’m not perfect either. I’ve made tons of stupid mistakes and later I regretted them. And I’ve done it over and over again, thousands of times. A cycle of hollow joy and vicious self-hatred. But even so, every time I learned something about myself. Please, Shinji. You’ve got to pilot Eva and settle this once and for all. For your own sake. Find out why you came here. Why you exist at all. Answer your own questions. And when you’ve found your answers, come back to me. I’ll be waiting for you. Promise me." Shinji: "...Yes."

Some of my favorite Non-Anime Quotes
"Unless. Unless you get up and do something about it and follow your passion to the full. Let nothing stop you. If you fail at your passion it's because you were afraid to try again. Keep trying. Get up when you fall. You will never have a great career, unless you are willing to sacrifice a bit of sleep, a bit of safety and security that you currently have. Fuck what society tells you and follow your passion." Comment by 'its2in0the1numbers1' on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKHTawgyKWQ
"You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love." ~ Jim Carrey
Donkey: Hey, what's your problem, Shrek, what you got against the whole world anyway, huh?
Shrek: Look, I'm not the one with the problem, okay? It's the world that seems to have a problem with ME! People take one look at me and go "Aargh! Help! Run! A big stupid ugly ogre!" They judge me before they even know me - that's why I'm better off alone...
Donkey: You know, Shrek... when we first met, I didn't think you were a big, stupid, ugly ogre.
Shrek: Yeah, I know.
Malcolm Crowe: [after realizing the time has come for him to move on] I think I can go now. Just needed to do a couple of things. I needed to help someone; I think I did. And I needed to tell you something: You were never second, ever. I love you. You sleep now. Everything will be different in the morning.
Anna Crowe: [in her sleep] Good night, Malcolm...
Malcolm Crowe: Good night, sweetheart.
"Peter? I know things have been difficult lately and I'm sorry about that. I think I know what you're feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you've been living with so many unresolved things. Well, take it from an old man. Those things send us down a road... they make us who we are. And if anyone's destined for greatness, it's you, son. You owe the world your gifts. You just have to figure out how to use them and know that wherever they take you, we'll always be here. So, come on home, Peter. You're my hero... and I love you!" ~ Ben Parker (The Amazing Spiderman)
*conversation at end of The Amazing Spiderman*
Teacher: "Mr. Parker! Tardy again?"
Peter Parker: "Sorry Miss Ritter! It won't happen again, I promise."
Teacher: "Don't make promises you can't keep."
Peter Parker (whispering to Gwen): "Yeah but those are the best kind."
"What if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended? What if a child aspired to something greater? You were the embodiment of that belief Kal." ~ Jor-El (Man of Steel)
*conversation in Man of Steel*
Lois Lane: "What's the 'S' stand for?"
Superman: "It's not an 'S.' On my world it means 'hope.'"
Lois Lane: [smiles] "Well, here it's an 'S.' How about... Super-"
[interrupted by Dr. Hamilton]
"So... I see you received the free ticket I sent you. I'm glad. I did so want you to be here. You see it doesn't matter if you catch me and send me back to the asylum... Gordon's been driven mad. I've proved my point. I've demonstrated there's no difference between me and everyone else! All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day. You had a bad day once, am I right? I know I am. I can tell. You had a bad day and everything changed. Why else would you dress up as a flying rat? You had a bad day, and it drove you as crazy as everybody else... Only you won't admit it! You have to keep pretending that life makes sense, that there's some point to all this struggling! God you make me want to puke. I mean, what is it with you? What made you what you are? Girlfriend killed by the mob, maybe? Brother carved up by some mugger? Something like that, I bet. Something like that... Something like that happened to me, you know. I... I'm not exactly sure what it was. Sometimes I remember it one way, sometimes another... If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice! Ha ha ha! But my point is... My point is, I went crazy. When I saw what a black, awful joke the world was, I went crazy as a coot! I admit it! Why can't you? I mean, you're not unintelligent! You must see the reality of the situation. Do you know how many times we've come close to world war three over a flock of geese on a computer screen? Do you know what triggered the last world war? An argument over how many telegraph poles Germany owed its war debt creditors! Telegraph poles! Ha ha ha ha HA! It's all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for... it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?" ~ The Joker (Batman: The Killing Joke)
"You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." ~ Harvey Dent (The Dark Knight)
“You thought we could be decent men in an indecent time. But you were wrong. The world is cruel, and the only morality in a cruel world is chance.
[holds up his coin]
Unbiased. Unprejudiced. Fair.” ~ Two-Face (The Dark Knight)
"I took Gotham's white knight and I brought him down to our level. It wasn't hard. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push!" ~ Joker (The Dark Knight)
"He's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight." ~ Lt. James Gordon (The Dark Knight)
"Don't talk like one of them, you're not! Even if you'd like to be. To them, you're just a freak, like me. They need you right now. But when they don't, they'll cast you out, like a leper. See, their morals, their code... it's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you, when the chips are down, these... these civilized people? They'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster, I'm just ahead of the curve." ~ Joker (The Dark Knight)
"You want to know how I did it? This is how I did it, Anton: I never saved anything for the swim back." ~ Vincent (from Gattaca)
"I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won't tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn't change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have." (from the book Perks of Being a Wallflower. I haven't read it, but I love that quote.)
"Get away from her, you *bitch!*" ~ Ripley (Aliens)
"Well, Clarice - have the lambs stopped screaming?" ~ Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs)
"Get busy living, or get busy dying." ~ Andy Dufresne (The Shawshank Redemption)
"[in letter to Red] Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." ~ Andy Dufresne (The Shawshank Redemption)
