The best way to describe me is an anime/video game nerd. Very typical I know but nevertheless that is who I am. By the way, the blog on OtakuElite is mostly for anime and video game reviews. My favorite animes are the following (in no particular order): Trigun, Wolf's rain, Cowboy Bebop, Ouran HighSchool, Tenchi Muyo, Code Geass, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Scry-ed, Samurai Champloo, & Project K(k for short). I am reading manga currently yet nothing comes to mind to talk about. Anyway message me if something interesting is going on in the anime community or video game community....please subcribe to me. :(

Replied to Burned out on anime
Ebel complex Is watching anime something one does when they have no life?  Well, maybe. I am very slowly watching episodes of both new and old Sailor Moon, although I care less for the new one. I had made a decision earlier this summer to stop taking part in any hype, especially within geek culture. Besides, I'd been all hyped up for the past two years just waiting for this new adaptation, all my energy is gone. I'll watch it when I'll watch it. I started Jojo's but didn't get past the first episode, not 'cause I don't like it, but because something happened and I was too lazy to continue...Very far behind on Naruto too. I'm also dealing with school now, and this summer I had this major inner crisis about my passion/interests and writing which involved not giving much a damn about the same old anime story lines and ecchi-ness.  I felt the same way about most anime this year, not giving a damn about the story-lines and ecchi-ness. There is only so much one could take before they go insane! Having the high-school setting, panty shots, naive characters, and cliff hangar endings are the norm for this century's anime. ramble, ramble, ramble. Anime use to be so good back in the day, blah blah blah blah. After October, I will not watch anime anymore. I have found myself not a fan of anime after so long. And, I feel now that anime is indeed for children at least the way anime is heading towards. Not saying it wasn't before but I just gave up with hoping for better anime. Anyway, I'm just going to throw away these old anime reviews I been drafting on & anime dvds. Drastic I know but I don't care anymore~ If anyone want some used anime dvds, let me know.

Created topic Burned out on anime
Ebel I have grown tired and old of watching anime this year. So far though, No Game No life, Irregular at magic high school, nozaki kun, tokyo ghoul, and akame ga kill have been the best anime I seen this year. However, I think most of the ongoing anime that I have listed are probably going to end on a cliff hangar. And you know me, I despise cliff hangars with a such a hatred that neither heaven nor hell shall contain my fury. Thus, I feel like just quitting watching anime all together this year and find something else to do. I probably will just read manga. Anyway, I wanted to ask if anyone else ever felt burned out of watching anime?

Ebel WestNyorai Ebel Thus far in this year, I learned greatly about myself and my enivronment. I'm not happy with living with my family, there's no love in a broken home. Also, it's been hard for me to change myself, my personality, my skill level, and feel happy. Whats possible for me is to have happiness but requires hard-work and being 100% committed to everything I do and everything I say. I been trying to change myself too quickly which end up making me confuse about my own darn feelings and what I want to be happy about in life. But, my dream of becoming a story teller has never changed; the objectives/goals to achieve that dream has changed. I need to leave my home, my old friends, my old ways, and old days to achieve the level of a story-teller. I need to move to Washington State, otherwise my dream and story will die with me in this endless cycle of hate and depression. The worst thing I have done to myself this year is to deny the dream I thought I gave up on: A family. A family that I can trust and share the harshness of reality and richness of reality. To that end, I believe a True Friend is like a family member: share the harshness of reality, share the richness of reality, share the burdens together of being alive in a screwed up society, and trust each other enough to not have to lie about our feelings to each other. It doesn't sound that complicated to begin with but I have apparently been asking too much of certain friends to meet these guidelines, but then whats the point in having friends then? Whats the point in having to lie about feelings or for that matter not being able to trust them? Friendship can be amazing as well as painful. I've had plenty of close friends in the past who over time grew apart from me. In part due to my own fault as I spent years isolating myself from society in fears of being who I am. Fears of rejection and heart ache. To be a truly great person you must learn to not only lean on your friends when needed but be able to stand strong and on your own two feet to be there for them when they're down. Sadly, the reality is you may need much more and will never be able to return the offer to have a shoulder to cry on. They may have a significant other or another love one they depend on. As is my case with almost all of my friends.  Life is lonely at times. Others may not understand what you are going through or the reasons behind it. Depression sucks. I deal with it myself. Even now as I fight to cure myself I face some form every day. Until you get to the point where you can put your problems to the side and find something more important in life you will always fall victim to the darkness of self doubt, fear, and loneliness. Remember friends are amazing. They can be there for you, but you have to be careful not to over burden them. They have needs as well and being there for you is a great way for them to fill many of their needs. People feel great about helping others. So if you're with friends try to show them how much you appreciate it. Try to talk about things that make you happy. It's hard. I know. But while your life may be full of sadness it's important to take time to forget about it from time to time. Be with your friends and have a fun time. Let them see the kind of person you really are deep down. Down beyond the depression. Trust me, once they come to love that shimmering light they will want to do whatever they can do help bring that shimmer into an explosive bust of happiness. Anyway, I don't want to rant. You should know you can always contact me if you need someone to listen. I understand depression since I deal with it every day. You can get through this. Don't lie, don't run. Fight. *hugs* I hope that helped.  Yup, you should also share some cookies with me if you have any!

Ebel I been working since the beginning of the month in Retail for stocking but hoping to get a job right now doing night stocking/cashier for the money. My original plan was to obtain enough money this summer to move to Washington State but I had to set it back until October 2015 or February 2016 to move. In the meantime I am training myself to be better with PHP and Javascript to mess around with code until I go to Washington State to study for Game Design/Animation.

Created topic Seasons in Anime
Ebel Hi guys I have a question! Its super duper important! Or is it? Here goes: certain anime have seasons which includes maybe a second or third season. However, on otakuelite.com do we declare a separate entry for that season if it has a particular name? For instance, Mushishi has a second season called Mushishi Zuko. Offically, Mushishi Zuko is consider the continuation of mushishi in its episodic form but it has a different tittle; therefore it deserves its own entry. Now, consider this: Silver Spoon only had one season but declared there would be a second season. The next season is techically called Silver Spoon 2 or in this case Silver Spoon 2014. My question though, lies in the fact should we declare another separate entry for the second season of Silver Spoon 2 [aka Silver spoon 2014]? Also, Break blade orginally had only 6 short movies that lasted about 51 minutes. However, the anime company made a tv series that aired 12 episodes with about the same animation but contained more scenes than the 6 short movies; does that mean break blade [2014] deserve its own entry?

Ebel Sounds like a comedy anime, but the better question is how much comedy did the anime had? like was it comedy it would occasionally have a joke or comedy where it happens like every 4-5 minutes?

Added anime entry for Break Blade (2014)
Break Blade (2014) On the continent of Cruzon, people are born with a unique ability. This unique ability allows people to control quartz which power machines and pilot golems. People call this unique ability "Magic". Those that cannot control quarts are called an un-sorcercor. Rygatt Arrow is one of these people but in his case, it gives him the ability to control the unique ancient golem.

Created blog entry Negima!
Ebel Animation studios: Shaft, Gansis Episodes: 26 Genre(s): Romance, Comedy, Magic Synopsis: "Negi Springfield is a student from a magic school who is continuing his education/training as an English teacher in an all-girls school. While there, he has to keep his magic background a secret, which isn't easy when you get such a bunch of variable personalities to keep an eye out for." (taken from otakuelite.com) Where to watch:  Youtube:Funimation   ***This review contains spoilers, please read at your own risk***   The English voice actor Negi Springfield has the same voice actor,Greg Ayres, who vocied for Karou in Ouran Highschool Host Club and Kyoki in Beck. With that said, I really hate his voice. And I will totally murder this guy if I met him in real life because his voice really sucks for the characters he plays. Plus, I feel like I want to break my monitor every time I hear his voice. Okay my rant is over. Sorry about that guys. I just get a bit worked up on Greg Ayres.   Anyway, the rest of the English voice cast did fine. However, the Japanese sub version is a whole lot better. In fact, I will strongly suggest you watch this series in Japanese sub. Otherwise, you will go crazy and, start talking about how you got your scar and how much you want the philosopher stone to restore your body.   I can't really say what the best parts of the comedy in the anime were. I would say though, that there is very mild sexual themes evident in the anime. Also its hard for me to judge this anime's comedy when I really hate little kids, extremely hate them.  So, I am not keen at all for the middle school female children in the anime along with Negima as a main character.   Moving along, the plot wasn't that bad. It felt very interesting, especially the elements of magic. Furthermore, those elements of magic are the basis for most if not all of the comedic scenes in the anime. There were other elements of the anime such as the harem that they really try to push for. And I would like to say this is one of the few I seen that feel genuinely unique. I am saying that alot lately but this is a really good anime for a magic-based anime.   Like all old manga-based anime though, the manga was still ongoing at the time of the anime production. Therefore the ending to the anime was not really related to the manga entirely.  Plus, there are still many parts of the manga that could have been put into the anime such as the journey to the magical world. I forgot to mention though that the anime try to follow the original plot but then went on its own plot. Similar to the way full metal alchemist did when it caught up to the manga.   Overall     Well, it certainly feels unique I'll give Negima! that. However, I can't really say I enjoyed it since I hate kids. I just really hate them. Sorry if you are a kid and you are reading this review, I don't like you ( if you are under 15 years old because I can't swear to you).   With 31 girl characters, its really hard for this anime to make each female character feel unique for Negi's harem plan. Keep in mind that all the girl characters have your typical personality from every possible stereotype in the realm of anime. Although you will most be seeing Asuna and Nodoka try to hook up with Negima. The other female characters will try to win him over, in time.   By the way, it is not Negima's intention at all to have a girlfriend in the anime. In fact, the only thing he is looking for in the school is a magical partner. A magical partner is sort of like a knight or tank that the wizard try to use buffs and give powers to. Other than that, he simply wants to work as a teacher.   If you like harems and you want a male child main character then this is the anime for you. Also expect a lot of magical based comedy that involves middle school girls.   Animation: 3/5 Story: 4/5 Sound: 3/5 Characters: 4/5 Comedy: 4/5 Overall: 4/5   I'm sure you guys know by now to check out theawesome for his last review. This is also my last review as part of the rom com. Hope you enjoy it because  this is a great comedy anime.

Created blog entry Princess Lover
Ebel Synposis: "Arima Teppei lost his parents in a traffic accident. His grandfather Isshin adopted him by force and ordered him to succeed the head of Arima Group Corporation. At Shuuhou Gakuen, a high school only for wealthly students, Teppei's new life as a celebrity starts." (taken from otakuelite.com)   Teppi is not your average guy, he wields a sword and knows kendo. To top it off, he is the grandson of the richest person in the world, sounds exciting right?   Wrong! Princess Lover is not exciting, it is far from it! In fact, stay away from this boring anime to watch something else. Something with a little more class and a better plotline!   -sigh- I wish I didn't watched this anime in the first place. To be honest, I felt nothing was interesting about the entire show. Also, didn't find it that bad to watch as well. Mhmm, I guess I would describe this show as pretty average.   I also felt that the show was confused about what it was trying to do. For instance, some of the scenes were funny then romantic and finally serious all in one episode. However, it wasn't serious enough nor funny nor ecchi enough to make me feel hatred or happy about Princess Lover.   In fact, this is one of the few anime that I truly feel neutral about. It could also be that Princess Lover was only about 12 episodes long that make it feel like an average anime and it probably could have build up to something better. Furthermore, I would also wager that the manga was a lot better in saying what it wanted to be. Now that I think about it, the manga had more ecchi and funny scenes in comparison to the anime.   One thing I do understand about this anime is the fact that it is a harem. All of the scenes, story, characters, and plot make this anime feel like a harem. I'm also positive this is another reason why this anime felt so average because the character Teppi didn't choose anyone and was passive aggresive about the women-expect he wasn't passive when it comes to fighting.   There also wasn't anything about the animation or plot that makes it unique. Again, this anime felt pretty average which made it hard for me to review this because I didn't find anything bad or good about Princess Lover.   Overall: 3/5 - Average, if there is ever a season 2, lets hope it is longer because it would certainly be better in whatever it was trying to accomplish.    With that said, I don't really know what to recommend to people to watch since this anime was very bad in trying to be funny, romantic, and serious.   However, you could try out Ouran Highschool Host club for a funny reverse harem or you could watch MM! for a perverted ecchi experience.    No pictures in this review due to me reaching my limit in imageshack. I'm trying to find another picture hosting site by the next review. Also expect the next review to be a lot longer and more wordy. Check out theawsome.
