Hi! ^^ I just happened upon this site one day, thought it was cool, saved the link, and then--as usual with me--totally forgot about it. >_< BUT, I recently was looking through my list of favorites and re-stumbled upon this place and decided to make an account before I forgot again. XD

I guess there isn't really that much to say about me. I like anime, manga, movies, shows, books--pretty much anywhere a story can be told, I'm there. I'm a writer, stories are, quite literally, my life. I'm currently working on two books and hope to have one in good shape to start sending it to publishers by the end of the year/early next.

I look forward to meeting you all! I've never been a part of an anime focused site because the ones I've seen are cesspools...Finding this one was a Godsend!

Thanks! ^^

Let's see...

Favorite games: Mother 3, Kingdom Hearts series, Metal Gear Solid 2, Cave Story, and Psychonauts are probably my top favorites.

Favorite anime:...that's a lot harder. All I know is that FLCL is on top, no other anime comes close to that work of art. Others would be: Hunter X Hunter (that is my favorite manga for sure), Soul Eater, Trigun, Welcome to the NHK, and a whole lot of others I can't think of right now. XD

love the art style in FCL! I'm not a huge fan of the story lol but the art is pretty amazing, I like Soul eater too :)

Thanks for the warm welcoming, guys! ^^

@Makachop: Aw, you HAVE to play Cave Story! It's the greatest. Do you have a Wii or a DSi/3DS? It's on all of those systems, too.

@Panda: Kingdom Hearts is indeed awesome!

@Nami: I'm sorry you have a bad memory as well (and you too, Topaz). :( My favorite anime is by far FLCL, unless that doesn't count as a series because of how short it is? XD If so, Soul Eater would probably be my favorite. As for manga, Hunter X Hunter hands down. In my opinion, HxH is the best the shonen genre has to offer.

XD It's alright. It's hereditary. ^^;

I've never seen FLCL, so I don't know.. but sure, it counts!! :D it's an anime ya? :3 Soul Eater, I liked it for a second. There was just too much perv-ville stuff in it >> I didn't want to finish after that (Besides, D. Gray Man is like Soul Eater without all the perv.) I've never read Hunter x Hunter, unfortunately, the art/story didn't look intriguing to me. ^^; I go for Rurouni Kenshin when I think of Shonen. ^^ But, I'm varied and like a ton of different things (even when people are weirded out)

O.o so, who is your favorite band?

@Makachop: Oh, okay! Make sure you play it, Cave Story is a masterpiece that everyone should experience. ^^

@Nami: Well, FLCL is only six episodes long, calling it a series might be a bit of a stretch for some people. XD You should really watch it! It's short and is amazing. It is sort of perverted, but everything that's there has a reason behind it. It's the best modern coming of age story ever told, IMO.

As for Soul Eater...how far did you get? At the beginning it is overly perverted and I didn't like it either. I watched two episodes and gave up on it. However, once I saw that it was on Netflix I decided to give it another chance and fell in love with it. As it goes on the perverted stuff goes away rather quickly, only popping up a little bit here an there. You should give it another try! D.Gray Man is cool, too. ^^ I need to watch more of that...I got a little bit past the vampire guy and stopped for some reason.

People don't tend to like HxH's art so I can't fault you for thinking that. XD Personally, I love the art. I don't know why, but I like the messiness of it. And the story is not HxH's main focus but the characters and the intelligence of shonen cliches. Gon is hands down the best character I've seen in any anime and manga. You know how in most Shonen the main character gets beat down, trains a lot, beats the bad guy, and the cycle repeats? That doesn't happen with Gon. Gon hardly ever wins, I can count his victories on my hands but I've long ago lost track of his failures. But he never gives up, he always gets on his feet, learns something from the loss and keeps on going. I can keep on singing HxH's praises for AGES, so I'll just stop there. XD Give it a try, if you can get past the slow start you'll find lovable characters and fight scenes smarter than any the genre has to offer.

Favorite band...Arcade Fire is probably my favorite, I think. What about you? :3

O-o Wow, that's rather short. But, interesting. XD I'll definitely have to look into it (if I ever get the time to watch anime anymore, which I rarely do these days). ^^; ah, the perverted thing gets me, but I can look past it if the story/characters are alright. Though, if it's heavily perverted, I get annoyed fast (Love Hina for example)

Hrm, I read the manga and it was perverted to the second book. Though the characters were interesting and the storyline is promising, I can't handle that sort of thing. I get annoyed fast and it really ruins the story for me. I don't mind it when it's done tastefully (which it can be, overly-done, it's just crude) I'll think about it. ^^ You should consider reading the Manga instead for D. Gray Man. I can't, personally, stand the anime. The voices are crap and the animation is weird. D. Gray Man's Manga art is STUNNING and totally blows your freakin' mind. The action is done well so you can tell what's going on. I love Allen in the Manga and hate that they gave him a squeaky voice... >> so annoying.

Haha, its your taste. ^^ Its what you like, I like things that other people, generally, don't like for art or whatever. XD Yeah, the cliches get annoying (though so do Shojo, but Shojo is pretty fun) Gon gets beat up huh? That's a nice change. :D I may check it out if it breaks down the cliches. I've heard it's really good. I usually flip to the middle of the book to see if its any good, I'll see. ^^

Never heard of Arcade of Fire. What sort of genre are they? XD Oh man, my favorite band? I couldn't possible say. I listen to a great deal of music, not all of it is one genre (in fact, most of it isn't) But, I guess for now my favorite bands are Owl City and Newsboys. Just for now. I have tons of music, and favorite songs can change on a dime, same with bands. XD; I'm rather indecisive. XD;

How about hobbies? Whadd'ya like to do, besides watch anime? XD

Hmm...I haven't seen Love Hina so I can't compare it to that, but I don't think FLCL is *too* perverted. What you have to understand is, in FLCL, EVERYTHING that is said or happens has meaning behind it. The appeal of the show is looking underneath all the crazy stuff and finding the real message behind it all. It's only six episodes long, it won't waste too much of your time if you end up not liking it! XD

I know what you mean about pervy stuff ruining some anime...Highschool of the Dead is probably the best example I can think of. It has all the makings of a great zombie story but the fan service is EVERYWHERE; it's really distracting. >_<

Second volume, huh? I think you stopped right when that stuff stopped being so prevalent, but I'm not sure because I mostly only watched the anime.

I have read some of the D.Gray Man manga and I agree, it is a lot better! I just never got around to buying them...Heh, I liked Allen's voice in the anime. XD Have you heard the English dub? He has a deeper voice--that I don't like that much--so you might like it better.

HxH is VERY good, yes. It just takes a while for it to get going...once it does though, it continues to get better and better and never stops.

Wikipedia says Arcade Fire is indie/art rock so I'll go with that. XD Owl City is cool! I've never heard of Newsboys before.

I like to read, play video games, watch movies, and write. Those are pretty much my only hobbies. XD Writing might not count though, I'm a lot more serious with it than just a hobby.
