    Congratulations! That's good to hear, although ironically now I've become slow with my VMs

    I've noticed that girls will pay more interest in me if I come off like an asshole in the way I tease or joke. I don't do it on purpose for that reaction. It's just how I am (though not in a mean way). It's not something that should be admired though. I don't think I should be liked for that reason >_> lol

    People who have suffered tend to be among the kindest, so it's no surprise that you're a good listener. You're able to be sympathetic and empathetic... I've just noticed how both of those have "pathetic" in the name... why?

    Yeah. I think I have the problem Sasuke did. You already know though, that I don't like to rely on others or put any trust in them. Had Sasuke done that, things would have probably been easier on him, though he might not be as strong as he is now. He wouldn't let anyone help him fight Itachi. He told Jiraiya and Naruto not to interfere. He wanted to take Itachi alone. Naruto almost went down that path until Itachi reminded him that one becomes Hokage by being acknowledged, not the other way around.

    Making it from scratch? Do you work with metal? That sounds cool :D

    Oh, so you haven't gotten to To LOVE-Ru Darkness yet? That explains it xD The ecchi is upped to severe levels, bordering on hentai sometimes, but it still keeps the other elements it's always had, so I don't focus on the ecchi a whole lot. Momo also becomes the main character, which is cool because she's by far my favorite in the series. Darkness ends after 12 episodes though, while the manga continues extensively beyond that. So much fanservice

    I've wanted to watch Deadman Wonderland, but I was told it wasn't popular in Japan and so it was cancelled, so it kinda has a horribly open/unresolved ending. I wonder if the manga was discontinued too? I hope not. It seemed so interesting

    Well I got through all the Monogatari episodes in a few days. I binge that shit Thee are more anime to add to the list, but as you can tell by my slowness with writing VM responses, I probably won't have it in me to write a bunch of anime summaries, especially since I've seen so many of them so long ago, it's hard to remember the plot fully lol. But Monogatari and Darker Than Black I highly recommend.

    And that's ok. I haven't been touching my VMs often lately, so you have nothing to apologize for. I do it purely out of lack of social drive, at least over the past 2 weeks lol.

    And to finish out my top 5 (because you're already watching To LOVE-Ru), is the Monogatari series.

    It's a hard anime series to name because each season has a different name. In order it's:

    Bakemonogatari
    Nisemonogatari
    Nekomonogatari (Kuro)
    Nekomonogatari (Shiro)
    Kabukimonogatari
    Hanamonogatari
    Otorimonogatari
    Onimonogatari
    Koimonogatari
    Tsukimonogatari
    Koyomimonogatari
    Owarimonogatari
    Zoku-Owarimonogatari

    There is also a movie coming out, called Kizumonogatari, which takes place before Nekomonogatari and Bakemonogatari.

    These titles all have one thing in common. Monogatari, which roughly means "story". Each one of these is a different story for a different character. The whole anime is centered around the paranormal. All the characters are being affected or troubled by supernatural creatures called oddities, which are all based on Japanese folklore and mythology. Some better known and some very obscure.

    In this, the series has a serious, action, and mysterious side to it. However it's also a harem ecchi, so it also has a quirky fanservice side, but it's less than To LOVE-Ru, and iirc there's no actual frontal nudity shown, not even for the girls' top halves, without some kind of strategic censoring.

    The series also has a lot of very well-timed and tasteful humor, making various references (some to "pop culture") and using clever word play and puns. The conversations are very stimulating and engaging, if not somewhat hard to keep up with.

    All the characters are very unique and quirky too, and it's hard not to love them to some degree. The story centers around the main character, Koyomi Araragi, and his relationships with the girls around him who have all been affected by these supernatural oddities to some degree, some being oddities themselves.

    On to the main character himself, Koyomi Araragi.







    Like I said before, Koyomi Araragi is probably the coolest most likeable character out there, at least as far as I've seen. The image spam was necessary, because there's lots of sides to Koyomi, which even those couldn't cover. Some people said my set looks like a wannabe Sasuke, but in reality Koyomi is everything Sasuke should want to be. He's a perfect healthy blend of Naruto's goofiness and sense of justice; Sasuke's coolness, looks, and seriousness, and Jiraiya's perverseness and charisma.

    I also like him because he's like the one anime character I can "cosplay" as by just being myself. He dresses normally and we have almost identical hair styles (except my hair covers my right eye and I don't have a piece of hair sticking up that has its own vertebra). I have a ton of Koyomi reaction images on my tinypic because he has such a wide range of expressions and emotions.

    On top of that, he's a pimp and he both knows it and doesn't know it at the same time. All of the female cast (the more main ones anyway) to some degree are into him, including his sisters in an indirect way (though one technically isn't his sister). His "pimpness" and knowledge of it stems from his Jiraiya side, where although he is pure at his core (like Naruto), he will willingly do perverse things or mess with the others, and he doesn't hide the fact that he likes any attention that he enjoys. As the one gif shows, he can express his love for someone, though still honestly say he's committed to someone (though I'm not a huge fan of Senjogahara, his official gf).

    But at the same time, despite all of this, he can also be totally oblivious of someone's feelings towards him or obvious advances made on him.

    Aside from perverse/quirky antics, he also deals with these oddities that have been plaguing everyone. He himself is sort of an oddity. In Kizumonogatari, he was turned into a vampire when he tried to help a wounded blond vampire named Shinobu. The two fought and the end result was him being turned back into a human, though still 1/8 vampire, giving him some degree of super strength and super fast healing, under some conditions. The vampire he fought had most of her power ripped from her, to where she became only a shell of her former self in the form of a child. The two share a bond where they are not at full strength if they are separated for long, and neither can survive without the other. When she drinks his blood, she regains a portion of her lost power (as well as her adult appearance) and he also becomes more powerful.

    Because of his ability to heal, he's almost immortal no matter what kinds of beatings he receives, and boy does he take lots of beatings. When he fought his sister, Karen, an entire freeway was leveled.

    This is another series I'd like to see end in a harem, for the same reasons as To LOVE-Ru, but it probably won't and that's fine. The series is still ongoing. Season 3 is supposed to start airing as soon as New Years.

    Because this series has both a serious and a quirky side to it, I should probably use two videos to show both atmospheres/aspects of it.

    Serious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlMC6gEX3T8
    Quirky: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBeONoWGk0A

    On top of this, one of the arcs in Nisemonogatari - focusing on Koyomi's other sister, Tsukihi - has THE most disgustingly adorable opening ever. Platinum Disco because she can get "Platinum Mad!" (which Koyomi has pointed out to her that she's never used that phrase before lol).

    That's all I'll do for the anime list for now. That sums up my top 5. I think I should give you a bit of a break

    Third is Fullmetal Alchemist; more specifically Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

    This was my original favorite anime, the one that broke me from the idea that Naruto was the be all to end all series that couldn't be beat. It's a shortish 64 episode series, and it tells its story well.

    In the world of FMA, there is a science known as alchemy, which is performed in this series much in the way a magic spell is performed, with a transmutation circle drawn first, as sort of the "magic ritual". This lets the alchemist take any material and turn it into something else, and any shape too. Cannons can be made from seemingly nothing, and much more.

    But the #1 rule of alchemy is of equivalent exchange. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.

    Also, human transmutation to create a human body and bring people back from the dead is forbidden.

    The story is about the Elric brothers, Edward and Alphonse, and their journey to find the Philosopher's Stone, an alchemist's ultimate tool, for Ed to regain his lost arm and leg and Al to regain his lost body (Ed used his arm as a sacrifice to transfer Al's soul into a suit of armor), after their attempt to bring back their mother from the dead went terribly wrong. In that effort, Ed becomes a State Alchemist, which you could call an alchemist police or military force, and along the way they discover a plot much deeper and sinister, and with more people involved than they could imagine. Much deeper than simply the homunculus (which are all named after the 7 Deadly Sins) they've been battling.

    Ed is a lot like Naruto. He can be very loud, stubborn, confrontational with a hot head, and headstrong, but he's also more intelligent and mature. He has a very strong sense of justice and he's very good at chewing people out, much better than Naruto's tiresome Talk no Jutsus. They have the same Japanese voice actors, but his English voice actor, and the whole English dub in general, is one of the few dubs that are better than the subs. Edward's English voice sounds especially epic when he's yelling at someone.

    Ed also has a special gift. He can perform alchemy without having to draw any transmutation circles. He only needs to clap his hands to make things happen.

    Though he has a personality somewhat like Naruto (though far more likable) and his hair is also blond, it's styled more like Sasuke and Itachi, VERY much like Itachi, with the split bangs in front and the hair tied down in the back.

    It also has one of the best OSTs ever, which is the song this video uses.

    Next is Attack on Titan, or Shingeki no Kyojin.

    I probably don't have to go too much into detail about the series, because it's so popular. Titans have overrun the world and the last remaining members of mankind have held themselves out within the confines of a region surrounded by layers of walls to keep the Titans out. This all crumbles down with the destruction of the outer wall, which sets the story in motion.

    From this crumbling wall, the lives of Eren, Mikasa, and Armin are changed forever.

    Mikasa is not only one of my favorite female characters, but one of my favorite characters period. She's such a strong badass, and her devotion to Eren is amazing. It's not like typical yandere girls, because she's actually VERY kuudere. But with Eren she has a bond that's inspiring. She's not only infatuated with him, but she's very loyal and protective, and stern and motherly. It's a mix of family, friendship, and romantic love. And her reasons are anything but superficial.

    On top of this, in the humans' quest to stop the Titans, they begin to learn more and more about the origins of these behemoths and discover that this whole thing goes deeper than they could have imagined.

    On top of the characters being awesome and memorable, the artwork and animation is breathtaking. This series is so good at playing with your emotions. Not only can it be very tear-jerking (such as Eren's mom telling him to run away and leave her to die, while then whispering "Don't leave me" into her hand so he can't hear her... I cry EVERY time I see that), but also during intense moments, you can be feeling upbeat and triumphant one second, and then IMMEDIATELY on the edge of your seat in horror and dread the next.

    In short. Not a single character in this series is safe. The impression is that there is NO plot shield. You don't know what's gonna happen or who's gonna die next.

    This is a good representation of AoT.

    Just saw your rep now The character in my set I'll be talking about soon. It's one of my top 5 favorite series and he's possibly my favorite character.

    Ok let's start with my #1 favorite anime. Darker Than Black. That's what my set used to be about.

    The series is based upon humans with special powers, like moving fast, summoning rain, causing things to freeze, producing deadly electric currents, energizing objects they touch, etc.. These are called Contractors. They feel no emotion. They only behave, think, and make rational decisions based on what is best for their own best interest and safety, making them easy agents to control. Contractors all have a "payment" they must partake in when using their power, such as having to kiss someone from the sex they're not attracted to, of having to vomit, or having to smoke even though they hate smoking, or having to cause themselves pain (like breaking a finger or cutting themselves), etc..

    The main character from Darker Than Black is named Li Shengshun.





    He's a very sweet and kindhearted Chinese college student, if also a bit clumsy. He's also very timid and shy, but he also comes across as loving and caring and will go out of his way to help others. He seems to be almost everywhere danger is and ready to help out. He also has a passionate obsession with stargazing and his physical features, especially his collarbones, have earned him the adoration/infatuation of a few girls in the series.

    Next we have Li's alternate persona, Hei.





    Hei is a Contractor himself. He is an agent for an agency called the Syndicate, who fights against other Contractors. When he's on duty, he wears a black trench coat and a white mask, which has earned him the title of "The Black Reaper". Hei's name means "black" in Chinese. He's called the Chinese Electric Batman by fans, because he's like Batman in many ways. Only the show is Darker Than Black, meaning darker than Hei. He is like Batman in the way he operates, coming and going mysteriously in a flash, and he's not the central focus of the story. On top of his Contractor powers, he's very highly skilled in hand-to-hand, mobility, and using his single grappling knife gadget.

    You could see Li Shengshun as Bruce Wayne and Hei/The Black Reaper as Batman.

    However, unlike Li, Hei is ruthless, cold, uncaring, and violent. He's as kuudere as kuudere can get. He will often lead people on to use them for the purpose of accomplishing his missions. Hei/Li is a very complex character and you're often left guessing which one is the real one, or which persona is his actual true self. This makes the series very interesting and leaving you to want to watch more as each episode reveals more and yet leaves more unanswered questions.

    The list of series for DTB in order are:
    Darker Than Black
    Darker Than Black OVA
    Darker Than Black: Gemini of the Meteor

    And here's the video that got me into wanting to watch it in the first place.

    Lol geez even when you have a break you're still busy, huh? xD

    For me it's not so much having emotions, but caring too much that's always been a weakness, when everything goes wrong. It's funny because people seem to tend to take interest in me when I have that "I don't care" attitude, for whatever reason, but then when I start caring, they stop. Does seem like I'm better of genuinely not giving a shit. At least, no one's given me a reason not to

    It keeps growing lol. Hypoglycemia is low blood sugar. Nystagmus is a side-to-side vibration/shaking in the eyes that causes vision to shake and feel like everything is shaking around you. Mitral Valve is a faulty valve in the heart that causes skipped beats and sometimes stops the heart for a second (once mine stopped for 3). Hypotension is low blood pressure/circulation. Anemia is a deficiency in Vitamin B12, for me because my body can't absorb it through food or drinks. And Insomnia is, well the reason I'm up now at midnight, having woken up twice in the last 4 hours despite falling asleep at 8 exhausted out of my mind I know what Gaara feels like Yeah I've had really bad depression in the past. Bad enough that if I hadn't run away from home years ago and brought the problems to the surface, I'd probably be dead one way or another. I'm really good at talking with people who have problems or feel depressed because I've been there, though I generally don't like to be around depression because though I can avoid it, I'm also susceptible to it. I guess you'd say it's like a vampire trying to curb its urges or something lol. I think depression is normal, as long as you can find a way out of it. Everyone deserves to let themselves be weak and reach that low point now and then. Trying to be strong for too long isn't good.

    I still can't believe how nasty I sounded to that person, someone I used to be shy around too. Though like you said, she did give me a valid reason. Even here I'm usually not serious when I post on the forums, but I'll lay it down sometimes. Hard to say what makes us break out of our shell. Not everyone who's merely friendly or weird can do it, even though those two traits make it easier.

    What are you insinuating? I totally did Well now I only have the one, because it's not going to be breaking anymore ever, but I used to keep half a dozen on me at a time

    Really? O.o That is strange because it's usually the type to appeal to guys lol. Then again I've seen a few who like the series. Some even agreeing with what I had to say about Momo, agreeing that she's one of THE BEST, if not THE best yandere type characters ever, so I guess girls can enjoy it too, which just goes to show there's more going for it than just fanservice. The stories and characters are all really fleshed out and loveable. I care about them all. It's one of the only harem series I want to end in a harem, because like I said I want them all to be happy in the end Also it makes me think of the poor treatment Kishi gave Sakura's character. All characters kinda got shafted and were only written two-dimensionally, but Sakura was supposed to be one of the MAIN THREE. It got me thinking about Saki, the writer of To LOVE-Ru. If only Saki could have written Naruto. He's good at writing characters, especially the 3 pink-haired females. Sakura can fall under both tsundere and yandere (towards Naruto and Sasuke respectively), well Nana and Momo are twin sisters, and Nana is tsundere while Momo is yandere, and I know Saki could have done her character more justice. It just makes me disappointed in Kishimoto >_>

    It's REALLY funny you ask me about more recommendations and about my suggestions, then mention about watching Guilty Crown All of the series I've mentioned so far are from my top 16 anime list, which is here http://www.narutoforums.com/showpost...30&postcount=9

    Among the anime on that list is Guilty Crown, which to my knowledge I haven't mentioned to you yet, but you just happened to stumble across that one too

    Well actually I wanted to picture Neji animalistically ravishing Tenten day-in-day-out, but she's still alive so

    I think I'll talk about all the anime I listed in that linked post above each in a separate VM. You don't have to reply to those ones, but I don't want to make this one VM look REALLY long and I want each one to have a separate VM.
