Anime & Manga
- Rose of Versailles: A classic shoujo anime taking place before during the French Revolution. There's plenty of political and human drama to keep things moving, while all of the drama used remains believible. Currently on hold at 35 episodes so that I can make it my 200th entry on MAL.
- Princess Tutu: Another shoujo anime. This time one about guitar ninjas... ...I mean ballet dancing magical girls. Anyway, it is a great fairytale anime, so please watch it.
- Haibane Renmei: A slow-paced fantasy anime with a great atmosphere, created by Yoshitoshi Abe of Serial Experiments Lain (another one of my favourites) fame.
- Fancy Lala: Another mahou shoujo anime, but this one is more light-hearted that Princess Tutu, and can pretty much be considered a Slice of Life anime in terms of pacing and content. My main reason for liking this anime is because of its great cast, especially the main character, Miho Shinohara, who is unique and quirky, yet totally believable at the same time.
- My Neighbor Totoro: In my opinion, this is the only movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki that really lives up to it's billing as a classic masterpiece, although Only Yesterday, directed by Isao Takahata, is another great Ghibli movie. Anyways, Totoro is a classic pick-me-up movie with top-drawer animation and music.
- Angel's Egg: My other favourite anime movie, because I am weird and like movies which are extremely slow-paced and make next to no sense. Thankfully, this movie has some of the best artwork I have seen for a pre-90's anime, which is further supported by a unique atmosphere that makes this anime one of a kind.
- The Music Of Marie: An short (2 volumes. 16 chapters), but great fantasy manga with some great Clock Punk artwork and an interesting aetting, with some Mind Screw added in for good measure. The characters aren't the greatest, but the other aspects of this manga more than make up for it.
My Favourite Tropes
- Boobs of Steel: Subverted if the female in question isn't human or has superpowers, but otherwise applies normally
- Breast Expansion
- Buxom Is Better, most of the time, anyway.
- Creepy Child, moreso with girls.
- Cyber Punk
- High Octane Nightmare Fuel
- Hot Mom
- Kuudere: Out of the "dere" archetypes which are often found in anime, these are easily my favourites.
- Mind Screw
- Most Common Superpower: Subverted, so to speak. While I like large breasts on non-superpowered women, I find superpowered lolis to be hotter than their older and more well-endowed counterparts.
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant
- What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?
- Widget Series
Tropes that apply to this troper:
- Cake Eater
- Deadpan Snarker:
- Lolicon, but only when the loli is a Creepy Child and/or Reality Warper, preferably a sadistic one.
- Nightmare Fetishist: This shouldn't be any surprise to anyone who has looked at my favourite tropes.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Chocolate Raisins, seeing as lasagne is already taken.
