  1. Sadly, no. It's the first I've ever heard of it. Looks pretty interesting. Skip Beat

    Whats Your Favourite ShoujoAi/Yuri Anime?

    Utena is a great story, but it's not the easiest series to fall into. I have found myself unable to watch it on a continuous basis in the least. But I do love the characters and a lot of the story premise. I just wish it was an easier series to be drawn into, for me.

    Manga vs Anime

    This is a very good point. It's not really a choice to pick between them, because although they contain the same story, like @Persona said, things do get left out when taking a piece of literature, either graphic or text, changes are made to fit the budget and time allotted for a serial or film production. Personal experience, Shijou Saikyou no Deshi: Kenichi dropped the last two thirds of the story from production and cut off after the final episode of the first complete story arc. I was disappointed because I had also picked up reading the manga and knew that there was more content and the story was only getting deeper and more interesting, to me, at that point. They made attempts at a later time to fill out the series, but never completed it and some of the additional episodes/OVAs/short films, left out a lot of content that made the manga interesting so, that is something I easily picked up on. Another case in point, the conclusion to the Fairy Tail anime skips about at least a full volume's worth of content that was in the manga at the very beginning, the episode that's supposed to follow the finale of the second series. I wasn't even able to get more than 5 minutes into the episode and haven't watched the new series at all because I was so disappointed that they skipped a really good mini-arc. While I do understand WHY they cut/change content, doesn't always make the anime or manga better than what it's based on.

    Do you play a musical instrument?

    While I was in K-12 I played the Viola from 3rd grade until I graduated HS. I honestly love classical music when I'm feeling lost or confused. It's an amazing way to re-center oneself. Even though I was a miserably bad player. I picked up Guitar in the 11th grade and I find it really fun to do once in a while. I try to learn songs I played on the Viola on the guitar and often succeed at getting some of the melodies down. I found a way to transcribe the music I've learned onto multiple instruments by mostly using the tones of the notes. I'm far from perfect at it though. I learned how to read all three clefs used in the basic setup of Orchestra's I've been in. I can read treble clef: guitar/piano/violin, alto clef: viola, bass clef: Cello/Upright Bass/Piano. I love all of the theory courses I took in the time from when I was 16 until I was 20. Not many, but I learned alot.

    what type of occupation do you have ?!

    Income is only marginally better. So far I've made like $400 in the two weeks I've been actually working.

    It's now in the lower 20s maybe upper teens in some areas here. And around a half a foot of snow too. Had family pictures last night too. Just glad it wasn't anywhere near 0 degrees. Really sucks when you've got some sort of infection in your respiratory system.

    Do you watch the same anime series more then once?

    I've actually been REALLY tempted to start my 3rd go through of Gurren Lagann. I really haven't spent time on that one much. I have been trying to also re-watch Slayers again, but for some reason can't seem to get into it.

    what type of occupation do you have ?!

    Used to be a professional pet sitter, now I am a package handler at one of the major shipping corporations.
  11. I originally found myself liking the first season the most, but when I started re-watching it, I wasn't able to enjoy it as much as I had the first couple of times. I started seeing ALL of the flaws all at once. Not a fun experience. I can't seem to focus on one anime at a time right now.

    It's been flip flopping somewhat here. It gets warm, then a frigid front rolls through and it is crazy how cold the wind feels, yet it refuses to snow.

    Damn thing has been stuck in my head since Tuesday. Really good song though. Forgot to add this one.

    Your Lie in April

    Most recommended anime for anyone that wants to cry. That simple. This story is simply beautiful, yet heart-wrenching. The music is lovely and very easy to listen to. I adore the animation and the arts style; simply gorgeous. I cannot say enough about this amazing series. Please go watch it.
