Hello, welcome to: How to make your profile as cancerous as possible 101
N O O T N O O T I am the juice of my acid.
SHAFT is my body, and drugs are my blood.
I have created over a thousand seizures.
Unknown to DVD sales.
Nor known to stream on time.
Have withstood food to create many anime.
Yet, those hands will never hold money.
So as I pray, “UNLIMITED SHAFT WORKS”
-Some Shaft fanboy on crack
Lazyass finnish university student who enjoys consumes anime and manga from time to time. I love science and math, especially interested in astrophysics, psychology and all that shit. I have a little bit of hipster inside me who collects vinyl records (check RYM profile for reference) and drinks way too much craft beer. Devout member of the Church of Madoka.
I rewatch series I love which greatly increases my days watched stat as I mark them all. I have a habit of rating everything as I'm watching it, so something that I've only seen couple episodes of may have a lower score than one might expect. It may take a lot of time to pick up a series marked as "on-hold" again, or it may even change to dropped. Series marked as dropped aren't necessarily there forever, it depends on the reason I dropped it. Favorite entries are limited to one "best" entry per franchise, but I must love the entire franchise for it to become a favorite.
If someone were to ask me for a "trapped in a video game"-story, I honestly would recommend Spy Kids 3D before SAO.
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Puella Magi Madoka Magica. The messages are extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics and metaphysics, most of the philosophical undertones will go
over a typical viewer's head. There's also Kyubey's objective outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - their personal philosophy draws heavily from Friedrich Nietzsche's ethics, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of this show, to realize that it's not just an entertaining and edgy show - it says something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Madoka Magica truly ARE idiots - of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the implications of Madoka's ascend to Godhood, which itself is a cryptic reference to the old German legend of Johann Georg Faust. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Gen Urobuchi's genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a Madoka Kaname dakimakura. And no you cannot see it. It's for the Homura cosplayers' eyes only - And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.
The only bad thing about Madoka Magica is how it popularized the misuse of the word "deconstruction".
Oh, and the animation errors, but those got fixed in the movies.
