Lately I've been trying to branch out of my anime watching, mostly with moe shows? Why? Well I'm honestly getting a little tired of moe. It's just become so overused that most moe shows I've watched just feel very repetitive and the same. I've mostly been succesful finding great shows that aren't moe, but I still come across others that have moe-ish designs. But they're still great since they have great storytelling and characters and aren't based souly on how cutesy and moe it can be. Which brings me to two shows that I would like to talk about.

I started watching Higurashi: When They Cry for Halloween time and I'm actually really loving it so far. I know a lot of my close friends who praised it like no tomorrow and now I can definitely see why. It's a great look into what paranoia can do to people, and it's arguably considered the greatest horror anime of all time.

Next is an anime that I've already seen, but I'm actually having second thoughts about, Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Now I've once said that I didn't like the show since I found it way too dark and depressing for my taste. But after watching other animes since then that can get really dark when they want to be, I realized how hypocritical I was being. Sometimes we need dark and gritty storytelling to balance out the lighthearted safe nature of slice of life shows. It just makes for more engaging and entertaining shows. And I can safely say that Puella Magi Madoka Magica is indeed a masterpiece on a critical level, and I would even consider it a favorite anime now. It be low on the list sure, but it's still on more or less.

So that's my feelings on Moe now. I can tolerate it as long as it does something new and unique to it, and if not, I won't consider it anything too special. *cough* K-On! *cough*



United States
Hi, I'm an aspiring artist and writer. I'm hoping to start a manga-esque graphic novel series about the lives of people with Aspergers Syndrome.

Here are some 10 random facts about me.

1. I have aspergers syndrome. But don't worry, I don't use it to excuse being a jerk, which I'm usually not.
2. I have a Christian background, but I consider myself more spiritual than religious these days.
3. I don't judge people for their race, belief, sexuality, etc. Just only on their behavior.
4. One series that I'm planning on making a manga-esque comic series is centered around people with certain disorders, mainly autism. And you can find most of the characters I created in my gallery.
5. My old username was "haruhiandkanonfan917", but this was back when I was hugely obsessed with those two animes, and I wasn't really creative with usernames. Now my username is based off my hair style and my anime fandom, and the 917 is based off my birthday.
6. I have my fetishes, but they're more moderate and normal compared to ones that are just gross or obscure.
7. I also love different kinds of animation besides anime. Like hand-drawn, stop motion, computer animation and more. One other art form I love is puppetry, mainly with Jim Henson.
8. My mentality was pretty different in 2011, but nowadays I'm more calm and respectful.
9. Aside from two titles, I'm not that into modern cartoons. Mainly because they either suck or don't interest me. Or the fact I rarely watch TV these days.
10. If you wanna do an Art Trade or Request, wait till I make a journal taking them. But unless I'm going through an art block, you can ask for one anytime.
