When you follow leads to their conclusion, only the truth remains. That is the end result of using Logic.
Miles Edgeworth, Ace Attorney Investigations
By thinking critically, answers become new questions, thoughts become reality, and what was once only a possibility can become the truth. This holds true to many forms in life, entertainment included. This will be my personal blog where I ponder certain aspects of anime, tokusatsu, and general life and how things are related. Due to the nature of being a scientist I tend to require evidence before being able to conclude something, but sometimes you have to think philosophically when there is no evidence.
While we may not know the absolute correct possibilities behind everything, being able to understand how things have occurred helps us to realize why certain aspects are important. I shall delve into the history as well as the cultural implications of actions that have occurred and use those to base my posts.
I can’t promise that I can make posts on a regular schedule. Life doesn’t always allow for structure and thus neither can I abide by a structure. I hope to continually update this as much as possible, but I warn that it’s likely there will be some downtime.
This blog will also play host to a few personal posts where I look at favorites and analyze why they are favorites to me. I hope that inspires you to think why do you like something so much. In fact, the entire purpose of this is to create thoughts and inspire people to question and ponder more in everyday life.
One other avenue of this blog is to post reviews of Japanese Blu-Ray/DVDs to give people who are thinking about importing some pictures/thoughts about sets that I’ve imported so they can make a better judgement on any purchase. When I started importing, there were very few resources available and I wish to somewhat fill in that gap with the shows I’m importing so that others can have an idea of what a Japanese release looks like.
Here is my final list of my top 10 favorite characters as of August 2012. Since there’s little suspense at who’s my favorite, I’m going in ascending order instead of descending. I’m also using novel characters, but their posts contain novel spoilers.
2:Sasaki (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
3:Satone Shichimiya (Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!)
4:Ruiko Saten (A Certain Scientific Railgun)
5:Taiga Aisaka (Toradora!)
6:Hisa Takei (Saki)
7:Mikuru Asahina (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
8:Kotomi Ichinose (Clannad/Clannad~After Story~)
9:Ryuji Takasu (Toradora!)
10:Haruhi Suzumiya (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
Favorite TV Anime:
No need to make posts as you can easily tell my favorite shows by the JP BD imports:
1: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya JP DVDs/Haruhi-chan BD/TV series BD/JP movie BD/US movie BD/novel fanbook translation/basics to Koizumimegax
2: Toradora!: NA DVD Volume 1/Volume 2/JP BD-Box
3: Clannad/Clannad~After Story~ NA DVD/JP BD (After Story)- NA DVD/JP BD
4: Hanasaku Iroha JP BD Volumes 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9 – Final Thoughts

6: Saki JP BD-Box/“Mahjong is fun” (debating DVD set if I can find it at a decent price)
And I can’t call anything else a “favorite.” If I can’t write a diatribe about the series, then I can’t call it one of my favorite series (and yes, these are series, not single seasons depending on format).
