Mic Check...1...2...

Postby Giant_Robot_Hug » Thu May 14, 2015 10:19 am

Hello everybody!

Recently found the Otaku Spirit podcast, and I'm so happy that I did. I have been listening to several anime podcasts over the past couple years, and have found myself tired of the rampant negativity. This podcast has been a breath of fresh air, and I'm pleased to find that there are still people out there who actually seem to like anime. From what I have seen, the hosts, and this community have a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to being a part of it!

I wont go on a long exposition about myself, but I have been watching anime since the days of Dragonball Z, Gundam Wing and Sailor Moon on Toonami. I can probably thank Chobits for hooking me into anime as a genre however. I really enjoy a good Slice of Life, and probably cry way too easily when I watch them. I enjoy tactical JRPG's like Fire Emblem, FF Tactics, and Valkyria Chronicles, and I'm interested in visual novels, but have not been sure where to get started.

If anyone has any questions, I will be happy to answer them. I'm really looking forward to getting to know you all, and thanks for having me!

Not to plug the knight or anything, but he has a great thread in the gaming section all about visual novels. Feel free to pop over there and ask him some good places to start. I recently finished the Fruit of Grisaia visual novel, and I'd really recommend that.

Now for the fun questions~
  • What's your favourite female anime hair colour?
  • What's your opinion on tsunderes?

Once again, I hope you enjoy your time here, because we're excited to have you!~

Oh yes, I think Anohana may hold the record for most tears shed.

Silver in theory, but I tend to like the characters with black hair. Tsunderes are the most wonderful and majestic of all. Thank you for the suggestion, ill have to check that thread out.

Tori wrote:What do you think about comic relief characters?


Generally, I would say that I like them. But an annoying one can ruin a show.

Logan wrote:What are some of your favorite shows?

Some of my favorites are FMA Brotherhood, Shin Sekai Yori, Steins;Gate, and Madoka Magica. My list of favorite shows is always changing, and I can never seem to settle on a #1.

#1 female is Gokou Ruri (Kuroneko). #1 male is tougher, Okabe Rintarou off the top of my head.
