I MUST LEARN THE MELBOURNE SHUFFLE! IT IS MY NEW LIFE GOAL!
NYA!~~ Greetings! Anyway, there is not much to say about myself... I am basically all otaku with a splash of goth (interpret it however you wish). Read on if you truly want to discover more about me.
My dream is to one day write for an anime magazine (preferably in Japan) and then to become a professor of Japanese history, culture, and philosophy. I would love to write a book and run a class that deals with themes in anime, what we can learn about the modern world (specifically Japan) through anime, cross-cultural interaction through anime/manga, and generally discuss various facets of the medium itself in a sophisticated way.
If you have any free time, please read a few of my reviews and give me any criticism you may have- whether it be positive or negative. It would be greatly appreciated! I enjoy discussing stories and characters , so please feel free to reply to any of my posts or leave me a comment. I have sufficiently little of a real life, so I will almost certainly reply to you!
Hmmm, since MAL doesn't have any options for videogames, I'll just put down what games I'm currently playing here (not that anyone, besides myself, cares):
-Final Fantasy VI
Anime is life.
Besides anime, I also enjoy:
-Essentially anything Japanese
-Videogames (particularily RPGs)
Speaking of RPGs, here is a list of videogames I have played and what I would rate them (since I haven't found a site like MAL for videogames):
Final Fantasy I- 2
Final Fantasy II- 3
Final Fantasy III- 1
Final Fantasy VIII- 9
Final Fantasy X- 9
Final Fantasy X2- 1
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance- 5
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2- 6
Fire Emblem- 7
Fire Emblem Path of Radiance- 10
Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn- 10
Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon- 5
Fire Emblem The Sacred Stones- 5
Golden Sun- 7
Golden Sun The Lost Age- 8
Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga- 3
Paper Mario- 4
Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door- 5
Parasite Eve- 1
Skies Of Arcadia- 6
Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars- 8
Tales Of Symphonia- 5
The World Ends With You- 9
By the way, I only consider RPGs actual videogames, other genres are merely things to do
Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni- A gory and suspenseful ride into the mysteries of Hinamizawa. Superb, unparalleled juxtaposition between moe and gorefest all while actively engaging the viewer as s/he tries to piece together the many elaborate mysteries the anime brings up. And underneath this veil of bloodshed and horror lies an underlying theme about the importance of friendship and working as a team. Truly lovely.
Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni Kai A superb conclusion to the mysteries of Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni. While it is not as suspenseful, it makes up for it with points of the story that evoke strong emotions and ties up any and all loose ends in Higurashi's plot extremely effectively- only to leave the viewer with one more thing to think about- the ending. *awesome*
Neon Genesis Evangelion A classic. Apocalyptic prophecies, excellent portrayal of psychologically-distressed people living in a shallow, materialistic world, and a truly epic ending to top it all off. Everything comes to a stunning conclusion in both the TV series and movie, a truly ravishing ending that can be interpreted in endless ways by any and every one.
Anime that made a 9 on my list:
5 Centimeters Per Second A strong, emotional tale of romance, aging, and maturing. Even though it is rather depressing, it highlights some truly realistic aspects of life that many people will encounter while growing up and, in the process, teaches some truly valuable life lessons. Top-notch, beautiful animation serves as an exquisite backdrop to this beautiful anime.
-Welcome To The Club- Manian
-Victims As Friends- God Module
-Do You Wanna Balloon- Trance Generators
-Deeply Distrubed (Infected Mix)- Infected Mushroom
-Mutilation Is The Sincerest Form Of Flattery- Marilyn Manson
This is fun, TRY IT!
