Balsa from Seirei no Moribito, my second favorite female character (only loses to Senjougahara, but Senjougahara is no warrior character...XP)

Just Anime » Contructing an Anime Vice Must-See List?

@sickVisionz: I liked the idea! I'm kind of a statistics fan, so I think it'd be pretty interesting to see the most voted animes (and the least voted as well...XP)

Just Anime » What's Basilisk like?

The Kouga and the Iga clan are in peace after many hundred years fighting.  
The current shogun, after seeing a representative of each clan fight each other, becomes afraid of their power and in order to get rid of such fearsome creatures, resolves to use them to decide his political issue on the choice of a successor to his post.
Each clan representing one candidate to be the next shogun, and the war starts once again. The best 10 fighters from each clan shall battle to death refueling a hate that was only pretended to be forgotten.   
However, unknowing that the war has begun once again, the successors of each clan: Kouga Gennosuke and Oboro Iga are living their happiest days in love with each other, blessed by ignorance.
 
The stage set, the story starts focusing on the characters and their fights. Fights that happen with the other clan, among their own clans or even with their inner selves. The plot advances in a very dark tone, blended with action and romance all of it in the right amount, making for a perfect combination, if I may say.
 
The art in Basilisk is outstanding. The best I've seen so far and the same goes for the music. The way one complements the other and both complement and enhance every single minute of the anime is unparalleled. The characters design and sceneries are really beautiful. Also, I must confess, I was driven to tears more than once while watching it, and much of this was due to the powerful work of Nakagawa Kou behind the soundtrack composition, although there's a lot of credit to the voice actors/actresses, who were brilliant, as well. 
 
It's really easy to get mixed feelings towards some characters in Basilisk, which proves just how well built and developed they are. They go through inner conflicts, have their own thoughts and act for their own reasons. Some of them really surprised me, which, considering the constant cliches we have in so many shows out there, was another quite welcome characteristic of this show. 
 
I've watched Basilisk 6 years ago, and I can assuredly say it's beautiful and moving from beginning to end. I can still remember quite vividly the impressions, emotions, music, art and story of the anime. A feat that very few achieved and, although I wish for otherwise, even less will in the future.  
 
10/10

Just Anime » Contructing an Anime Vice Must-See List?

Well, I'll try just selecting the ones I believe to be "mandatory" in the genres I can remember. More like a "watch this first if you've never watched anything on this genre". I know most animes can fit in more than one genre, but I'll focus on the primary one.
 
Comedy: Excel Saga 
Drama: Clannad: After Story 
Slice Of Life: Honey & Clover  
Romance: Nana (Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien if you prefer a finished one)
Action: Saint Seiya 
Horror: Aoi Bungaku Series 
Mystery: Monster 
Supernatural: Ghost Hound 
Sci-fi: Lain 
 
And these are the ones I can remember for now = ]

Just Anime » Not your Favorite Anime, But Your First

I think the first one I've ever watched was Pokemon o.o 
But the one that really got me into animes was Inu Yasha. At the time I thought it was really good...XD I still have some respect for it, since it was the one that opened the doors to the world of animes to me!XP

Just Anime » Anime you couldn't keep watching/walked away from

It's reaaaaaly rare for me to drop an anime, even if it's really lame. (I sometimes have the sweet illusion that it can get better) but there were some which were just unbearable. 
 
Shakugan no Shana (2nd season) 
Bleach 
Naruto  (even though I love the manga, the fillers were just too much) 
Claymore 
D. Gray Man 
Tsukuyomi Moon Phase 
He Is My Master 
Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni 
 
And those are the ones I can remember now...o.o

Off-Topic » What Are You Listening Too?

I'm a huge metal fan, specially trash metal,. However, lately I've been in a kind of different musical phase...XD I've been very keen on trip hop and noir rock. I often say that trip hop is the kind of music to raise the ideal mood, if you know what I mean...XD Noir rock has a certain melancholic aura which pleases me a lot. The band I've been listening to, Elysian Fields, has a vocalist with an amazing voice! She also takes part in a trip hop project from 2001, called Lovage. To be blunt: Jennifer Charles' vocals = eargasms!XD
