Tropers / Oberyn

a.k.a. He-Who-Watches-Anime-And-Reads-Comics-And-Books-And-Such

Greetings, Topers! I am Oberyn! I am a seeker of entertaining anime, manga, books, comics, video games, e.t.c, as well as an avid troper and part-time reviewer.

So let me discuss some aspects of myself:

    open/close all folders 

    Favorite and Least Favorite Anime/Manga 


Least Favorite

  • Negima!: I debated putting this on the list. I admit, Negima (especially the manga) does a lot of things good, but there are some things that annoy me that I cannot help.
  • Death Note: NO! I do not consider Light a hero. Actually, I considered him an anti-hero...up until episode 2. That and...well...there's really not a heaping amount of likeable characters in it.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! GX,5Ds, Zexal: At least the original had a semblance of likeable plot. These three, in my opinion, where just to cash in on the card game.
  • Sports Mangas: Sorry, no detrament, I just find them boring.
  • Gundam Wing: I liked the story, the characters and such, it's just...Gundam stopped being fun after this. Because it introduced Yaoi Fangirls to the equation. (As you will see, I am all for gay rights and such. What annoys me is when people try to push shit one me, like obsessive, psychotic Yaoi Fangirls can and have).
  • Dragon Ball: Now I know I'll be crucified for this, but I don't, have not, nor ever will like Dragonball. I'm sorry. I couldn't stand the main character, the screaming, the rediculous power-ups, e.t.c. I do like the abridged series though. Go Team Four Star!
  • The End Of Evangelion: OH DEAD GOD IN HEAVEN! Now, let me get this straight, I like the series. But this! This is, in my opinion, a blatant middle finger to the fans.

Tropes That I Embrace:

  • Badass Bookworm: Not to be proud or anything, but a 3.5-3.6 GPA in a History major as well as Kempo (not a black belt...yet).
  • Berserk Button: "Stop Having Fun" Guys, People with innacurate info to back up their claims, and people who redicule others.
    • Another is when anime fans in the west try to act redicuously japanesse. It's fine to like anime and appreciate other cultures, but seriously?
  • Blade on a Stick: My preffered weapon in video games.
  • Celibate Hero: Completely against my will though.
  • Even the Lawful Neutral Has Standards: As admitted above, I'm not a strong fan of Negima!, but when I heard one of the Fan Dumb bashing it with very innacurate fact to back it up, I went balistic.
  • Kuudere
  • Lawful Neutral: The law is the law. Deal with it!
  • Superlative Dubbing: I am not one those that despise dubs. As long as you put effort into it, I appreciate them. Glad to see that this is being embraced more.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: 5'10'', dark complexion, and more snark than handsomness.
  • The '90s: A child of this age.
