PostSubject: Umm ... Hi?   21st August 2011, 12:28 pm

Well, I'm not so great at introductions, so ... I guess I'll just wing it. ^_^"

Sailor Moon was my first anime, at around the age of six. It was one of those Saturday-morning reruns, and also one of those days where they played two episodes in a row. Needless to say, it made a lasting impression since - nearly eleven full years later - I still enjoy the fandom as whole. Up to now I've seen every episode of the first three seasons dubbed, and about a quarter of the fourth season. The site I was watching it from got taken down, though, so I'm a bit at loss as to how to finally finish the series (although I'd particularly like to watch it english-subbed this time).

I've also been reading the manga, though, and am certainly enjoying it thus far (Volume 4 of the Tokyo Pop translation). Lately I've been sort of putting together a timeline that includes both versions of SM that I'm more familiar with, namely the anime and manga. And, off and on for the last couple of months, I've been developing an OC character that I've had in mind for a while. Lo and behold, her character as whole has expanded to the point of earning an entire story. ^^

Being an author, although admittedly with a bit of an ADHD muse, I'm juggling quite a few stories and novels - both original, and fan work. Seeing as my scope of preferences is broad indeed, so are the fandoms that I enjoy. [A list is included in the spoiler, if it should strike anyone's fancy.]
Spoiler:
 
My work is generally Fantasy in base genre, although I'm treading the waters a little with experimental Science Fiction ideas. The main sub-genres of fantasy that I've been using in the past few years are mostly Epic and Dark, although solid characterization - my specialty, really - is what makes the latter so powerful.
I dabble off and on in poetry and lyrical song writing, both of which sometimes show up in my stories.

But, this is starting to look awfully long for an introduction ... ^_^" I suppose I'll wrap it up by saying that I'm a major animal lover, and it seems to be some unwritten law of nature that we always get the quirky ones to be our extended family. *Laughs.*

Over and out,

Moonlight / SeleneHime.

Oh, that's definitely a nice selection. ^^ I haven't got any games since IV for the DS in Final Fantasy (my games are as follows: I & II: Dawn of Souls GBA, V GBA, III DS, IV DS). And I'd honestly have to say my favorites are IV and V. Very Happy

Welcome, my dear! Smile

You MUST watch the subbed anime when you can. You will be shocked at the changes. Quite amusing. The dialog is so much better as well. Heh. You should try downloading torrents from sailormooncenter.net. The links have been a bit wonky lately but generally they are an ideal place to find your subbed episodes. I am really excited to have you here! There is so much about the beautiful sailor moon world that you have yet to be introduced to. And this is the perfect place. Smile Don't be shy and do explore all there is here!

I adore final fantasy as well. Smile Have you ever played IX?

Thank you, Jupiter, I appreciate it. ^^

Hehe, well, I have seen one subbed episode before the copyright attack hit. And I would have to agree - The music is so much better in the original sub, although Usagi's first episode's worth of voice acting was a tad too high pitched for me. Hopefully it'll even out some, XD.

And, no, I unfortunately have not. Any and all of the PSX to PS2 games are on my wishlist for when I finally get the system. VIII, IX, and X look like the best out of all of them.

Try youtube or even typing the sailor moon episode number into google. That is how I find most of my videos. The final season subbed is great. So much going on. It is my favorite season, so I hope you find the episodes to enjoy it like I did.

Welcome to the forums.

Well, I'll give it a shot. And the final season does look fantastic, judging from season teasers and AMVs based in that time frame of the anime.

*Smiles.* Thank you, Yumi.

Welcome aboard, SeleneHime! I second Jupiter's recommendation regarding the subs, and sailormooncenter.net is the perfect place to go to find high quality translations of a good portion of the series. There are quite a large amount of files to be had, but it's well worth the wait and the hard drive space.

Looks like you really enjoy the RPG genre of video games. I used to play Pokemon way back in the day, but I never delved into the Final Fantasy series outside of following some of the stories through a few friends who played the games. I'm more into FPS games, usually ones produced by Valve (Half-Life, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead). But I definitely enjoyed some of the games you listed such as Legend of Zelda and Star Fox. Which Zelda games have you played thus far?

Once again, welcome to the forum!

Well, can't say I can download it. Does it offer ways to just watch it from the site? The computer I use technically isn't mine, but the family desktop, so ... ^_^"

Yeah, I'm a stickler for a good story, in any available form. For the Zelda series, I've played every game (not to say I've beaten them all, thanks to memory corruptions before the finish), except the Link's Awakening ones, and Wii versions on. That and the new Ocarina of Time 3DS. I don't have either of those systems, but they look like good games.

Thanks for the warm welcome, Spoon. ^^

(Out of curiosity, what is your favorite character in Death Note? Mine is probably Matsuda ... if I spelled his name right, XD. The rookie guy that ends up Punching Out Chtuhlu at the end of the series.)

Yeah! Matsuda is awesome. I love how he just flips at the end of the anime.

And btw, hi!! Smile

Hehe, me too. He's definitely the best 'normal' character on the entire show.

Thanks, Brit-chan. ^^

My favorite character from Death Note? Good question. I very much like Light as a character, but not at all as a person when he's using the Death Note. I'd say he's probably my favorite character because it's difficult to tell what actually makes him tick. The same goes for L, but I find it harder to relate to him. That's part of his charm, though.

I'm glad to know there are some Death Note fans around here! We'll have to make a shining new world... er, uh, thread sometime to talk about the series.

^^Agreed. I really liked the dynamic between L and Light. Its like I liked Light and almost wanted to root for him even though I knew it was wrong.

I'd be inclined to agree. Light, as a character, is indefinitely interesting. Throughout the series, you can see his motives growing progressively darker - as well as his tolerance. What started out as a potentially noble crusade goes to the gutter.

To be entirely honest, the sheer mind games of that work are enough to make me rewatch it more than once. Very Happy

Death Note is probably one of the only series where I wish I could have my memory wiped of it so I could experience it all over again.

Heh, if only, right?

So ... Not sure if I should post this in the Otaku Senshi board since my OC isn't complete, but I would like an opinion on something -
Should Sailor Sidus' garter act as "hammer space" for her Astral Lash (a chain), or should it be a weapon/shield itself?

You could post what you have done and ask for opinions, then edit as you get some. There are no rules that say you can't post an unfinished Otaku Senshi there and since I'm mod of that area anyway, I say go ahead make a full fledged post (even if she isn't totally complete) so we can have an area dedicated to talking about ideas for her. Smile

I'll probably divide her profile into sections since it's so long, to make it more reader friendly. (So far it's at about 5k in wordcount and still growing.)
