  5. It might seem werid, but I'm often forgiving of older shows - such as Fate Stay Night by Studio Deen. Whilst it doesn't hold a candle to Fate Zero, UBW or HF by Ufotable got a show made in 2006 it still very well made. Obviously if somthing was trash in its time, it can still be trash today. Such as Mars of Destruction or Cipher. Those are god awful. And not just cause there old.

  6. One of my problems is wanting to settle down. Did not expect to be feeling this way at least not until much later. XD I still talk to my closest friends but when I went to university outside of the city we drifted apart. Came back to finish school closer to home but I can't shake the homesickness. Thanks man, anime forums might be a small website but the users are open and genuine.

  7. When I was little I wanted to be a vet and foxes were my favorite animal. As it was a childhood dream I went with Kit to relate my early youth to it.

  9. Mine is from Otaku no Video. The founder of Gainax chose it for himself(otaking) after being made fun of for being an otaku..."If I'm going to be made fun of for being an otaku, then I will be the otaku of all otaku...Otaking!" The 66 was tacked on after I met "American Otaking" Steve Pearl at a con and we had an epic trivia contest...he beat me, of course, but not after many rounds...he said I was the 66th or so person he met as passionate and informed about anime in America as himself...lives is because I am returning to the fandom after a long hiatus(life).

  10. Please, don’t even joke about something like that I know you worry about sounding like you’re complaining, so things must be really bad to open up about it. I’m glad to hear your family is looking after & supporting you in the midst of all this. I wish I had something inspirational or deep to say, but it seems like I always come up short when it counts. That bad jokes & rambles are all I have a talent for. Keeping you in thought & prayers though. In the hope that something lighter may take your mind off things: For a brief period of time my family did (more dogs than people )3 or 4 at a time was the norm though. All shelter dogs or strays. Which makes not having any at all since early this year feel strange. First time since I was 3 years old. I should definitely stock some of those. At the risk of TMI, I’ m rather hirsute with the exception of the top of my head. Which makes removing any sort of bandage something that requires gritting my teeth. Embarrassing to admit but I actually missed removing an Echo pad on my back where I couldn’t reach/see once & didn’t realize till it came off in the shower a couple days later Please get some rest & whatever help you need. And check in when you can

  11. Been doing my best to catch up but honestly I'm having a crap time. Collecting medical bracelets like the latest fashion. My health jumped into the deep end after a mistake with my second Pfizer vaccine. Now I'm just trying to endure and doing my best to survive. My mother rushed me to the ER recently when I passed out right in front of her. The last few months I've been fighting the good fight, trying to hold out because I wasn't able to get back to my Cardio doctor until December. In ER I remember the electrocardiogram buzzing off, my mother getting pretty hysterical and then... nothing. I woke up in another room and saw my father (at this point I thought I was dead ). Apparently they rolled me out doing CPR after I lost consciousness a second time. Almost scared my mother to her death. Was in the hospital for three days until I was stabilized enough to go home. They still haven't found the issue, although they're leaning towards heart/artery related. My appointment for the Cardio is still set for December. Though I've been taking way too many painkillers trying to keep the pain away. I'm sooo exhausted. Lots of pain and spasms on my left shoulder and neck. Endless headaches. Especially when I try to lay down and rest. I'm actually really scared. Trying my best to keep my mind busy. I hope everything will be okay... At least I know I'm going to be billed out the butt for surviving this round. No but really, if you're ever in an Echo pickle, ask for some of these. It helps not to peel your skin off when the Echo pads come off. Would of loved to have known that after the EKG. I've been doing my best to keep my mother from worrying but I'm definitely failing. She's got extrasensory powers that let her know I'm sneaking around the house, it's freaking me out. It's nice to be in the old home again and my younger sis is sticking around. I miss my babies though (I've got five dogs ). They're staying with my brother, he's probably secretly upset about that. No sane person has five dogs, I know. If I suddenly don't log in for like a year, please pour me a glass.

  13. Me, too! I loved it when I was young! I remember searching for a hard copy of it for a long time, and finally finding it at like a Game Stop in a neon green VHS case XD Then finally it came out on DVD. I was stoked :3 There was so much thought put into the world, right down to the music! It's impressive how large of a world was created Such amazing work, and all hand made.

  17. One of my favorite songs. Hi Rockey, how are you? Any current songs that you're listening to? Pretty much my favorite VG track. Especially if you know about the character's tragic story. Gets me every time.

  24. @Soramee_ I know my MAL scoring system doesn’t align with most peoples. The general opinion on MAL is if you rate something lower than 7, it’s not really worth your time. But for me, a 6 series may have obvious or persistent flaws, but still manages to be entertaining/enjoyable. And I’m extremely stingy when it comes to 9s & 10s. It’s kind of hard for me to score shows that feel dated or clearly aren’t high quality, but I still like them alot. I’ve been trying to tweak my scores a bit recently.

  25. Hey there! My name is Hazel. I'm looking to make some new friends who also like anime. I'll list some facts about myself I'm 22, I use She/Her pronouns, and some of my favourite anime are My Hero Academia, Fairy Tail, Trigun, and Inuyasha! I really want to make some new friends, so, if you'd like to talk about anime or animals, that'd be a good start point for me! I'm kind of shy and try not to trust people too easily, so I'm not great at making the first move when talking to people. I also am not very good at holding a conversation on my own, so sorry if that's a problem... I hope I meet some new good friends! Let's all have a good time!

  32. @Ohayotaku I feel so dumb after posting personal experiences like this. Yet it's the only place I can share my feelings on something this concerning, without making my family worry too much. AF is truly my secret lair away. That's exactly what an inspirational pick-me-up reads like. "I'm here for you." There's no easy way to read about someone's troubles and know exactly what to say. Not all of the time, not when it's something of this nature. I'd never want to bear down on someone like that. That you commented at all is enough. I'm the one with the extra talent for bad jokes. If I can't turn the morbid into an ironic giggle than the old gal has truly run out of steam. I think dogs are an important part of life in general! Oh no, I'm so sorry. I bet it does feel strange. I love surrounding myself with them but I know I'm going to be heartbroken when the time comes. Again, that is. I lost two from old age and have never forgotten. But to have had them in the family at all was a blessing! My legs are immune to such teeth gritting. I've trained all my life in the secret arts of waxing. Ah-hem, aside from a teeny bit of Winter slack. Yay, Echo buddies. I was so drained when I came home on the first ER visit, that I went to bed with all of them still stuck on me. Thank you for the smiles, Oh-Oh. I'm really determined to get past this, I do not like being on the sidelines. Too restless and there's a lot of things that simply need doing. Alas, I've been resting. I fear the wrath of my family more than anything.

  42. I'd say the movies that make me feel the most nostalgic are: 1. Aristocats (1970) This was always one of my favourite movies as a kid and I still just absolutely love it today. The art is beautiful, the music is just wonderful, the characters are just absolutely charming and the story is incredibly fun. 2. Treasure Planet (2002) This was definitely another one of my absolute favourite movies growing up because it was such an original concept with breathtaking art and an intense plot! I also feel like I had/have a strange "I-can-relate" view towards Jim even though my life is pretty much the opposite of his ... I'm still not totally sure why, he's just a very relatable character to me and I can sympathies with him a lot. 3. Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001) I really loved these old Disney movies when I was younger and Atlantis had that original feel about it as well which I loved. Again, the art for this movie was also beautiful and, having re-watched it recently, I can say that I still love it and the characters. and, 4. Grave of the Fireflies (1988) I haven't seen this movie in a while but I remember watching it multiple times when I was younger and crying every time. It's such a beautiful, heart wrenching tale that was like nothing I'd ever seen before (it was the first ever animated Japanese film I'd ever seen at the time) and I absolutely loved it even though it made me so incredibly sad. Some movies that make me feel good are: 1. Donnie Darko (2001) I have to say this is my favourite movie of all time (I just love everything about it, honestly) and it makes me feel weirdly "seen" due to the fact that I feel like Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal), especially in the therapy scenes, captures some of the exact same expressions and mannerism I displayed during my therapy sessions as well ... especially the nervous, crooked half smile that's barely there but somehow still very noticeable because it's just hardly keeping back tears. I also liked seeing a character who expressed resentment and disgust with those around him quite often and who was downright apathetic at points due to his different views on things but was still caring and sweet too. It was just absolutely wonderful to see a character I could look at and say, "He's like me." at times because, although his issues are (obviously) completely different than mine, I felt like I was seeing an honest portrayal of things I've felt for a long time ... I also just love the absolutely creepy and unsettling tone that always transitions so seamlessly into the film at every turn. The music used for these scenes is absolutely wonderful and enhances each scene so beautifully. I also just adore how the movie screws with your mind, unsettles you and makes you laugh so easily ... it's just such a beautiful film to watch that it always makes me feel good and I have so many quotes from it that I don't think I'll ever quite forget. and, 2. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989) + Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) Honestly, I'm not really one for comedy movies and usually find them quite boring, predictable and over-saturated with jokes I've heard a million times before. However, I do have to say that for some reason I absolutely adored these movies. Having watched them quite recently with a friend of mine who'd told me they were great I went into them expecting nothing that special (however, I knew I was at least going to like them a little bit since I absolutely adore Keanu Reeves) but, quite shockingly, I found them genuinely entertaining and they had me laughing harder than I've laughed in a good long while. Now, usually I hate movies that have little logic and are just full of jokes to make up for it but alas, the complete lack of any logic whatsoever within these films made me love them that much more, which surprised even me. In the end, these movies were an absolute joy to watch and had me laughing even after they were done so I definitely have to put them on my list of movies that make me feel good since it's so rare for any comedy movies to do little more than make me exhale in a somewhat humored manner.
