Report whither's Profile

For me, anime is just entertainment and should not be a chore to watch. I'll try pretty much anything, but I have no reservations about dropping shows at any point if I lose interest. One episode in, one episode from the end, doesn't matter.

Favourite things:
• Manipulative, ambitious, clever villains
• Machiavellian leaders / underdogs thirsting for power
• Tragic breakdowns / spiraling into insanity
• Intense, long-term, all-consuming rivalries
• Morally corrupt bishōnen... romantic himbos... sad, disheveled DILFs
• Well-executed fantasy / scifi world-building
• Wholesome found family shenanigans / chaotic ensemble casts
• Heists, espionage, and secret missions

Least favourite things:
• Damsels in distress (lack of agency) / useless heroes (angsty, indecisive, weak-willed)
• Haphazard / grotesque fan service
• Lazy storytelling, deus ex machina, and poorly explained convoluted lore
• Heavy reliance on atmosphere, mood, or aesthetic while the story itself is weak
• School settings, school children, petty school drama
• Sickening "cuteness" overdose, lollis, and extremely high pitched voices

Favourite manhua, webtoons, etc. not listed on MAL

Hello <3 Thank you for reaching out!! I'm so glad you're enjoying it! I was a bit worried, because even though I've read stuff with buff guys, I never did it consciously and could mostly remember yaoi with not so consensual stuff, so I did a bit of research to make sure I gave you something good! I hope they all work out <3 Happy New Year!

Incredibly based background art compilation in your profile.

Also, I notice you've also went down the CSM rabbit hole.

where have you watched Xi You Ji?

Hey, just noticed that you're also watching Link Click. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on it.

I realized I misread manhua as donghua, and the manhua of Da Li Si Rizhi is not on this website. Sorry for the confusion.

Oooh, I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts after you've finished! You had a very very interesting request among the other manga elf gifts and it was a lot of fun to write ^^
Thank you and Happy New Year to you as well~!!

Ah alright. Heard the movies are quite similar to the series except for few instances like Shirley so I'm assuming I can just watch the third movie without missing too much?

Imagine getting someone with the same appreciation for similar shows as a Secret Santa. Thanks for such a detailed response btw, honestly much appreciated! Unfortunately, with my finals so soon I wasn't able to watch much anime during the holidays so I can't really comment on the shows you send but I'm really looking forward to starting them throughout the next month (especially Gundam). I've been holding off on the Code Geass movie because I thought that the ending of S2 is still one of the best I've watched and didn't want it ruined so would you still recommend it?

Anyways hope you had a happy holiday season and a great year moving forward!

If you find something that matches at least one of your criteria, let me know. And it doesn't have to be a 10/10 show, even a 7/10 is good enough for me.

I see Kino no Tabi on your PTW list. I watched it recently and it's a thought-provoking series that explores various ethical and moral issues in society. What makes it unique for me is that it doesn't introduce an issue and spoon feed you the "right" answer, but it lets you think about it and form your own conclusions. ♡

I was away from MAL for 8 months so I just accepted your (old) friend request. Thanks. ♡

Nice to meet someone who has exactly the same "favorite things in anime" as me.

Yeah I guess I did respond pretty quickly. (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑
