I'm 26 year old dude from Southern Finland. I mainly go by Fami and Shii.
I consider myself quite a video game enthusiast with a lot of my time involving video games in one way or another, whether it's listening to video game music, reading news, discussing, thinking, collecting or even playing some of them once in a while.

I've played video games throughout my whole life starting with NES, though I don't have many memories from back then besides watching my brother and father play Super Mario Bros. 3. Most of my early childhood gaming memories involved Super Nintendo and Sega Master Syster with Zelda, fighting games and platformers. I started taking gaming more seriously during fifth generation with games like Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy VII and my interest kept growing to my teen years with Playstation 2 until I had a burn out and only started slowly recovering quite far into seventh generation with Nintendo DS Lite and later Xbox 360. Now I'm more into gaming than ever before. My current main systems are Playstation 4 and Vita.

I used to be huge into anime (and all things Japan) as well, but the interest ended up fading away. But it's something that I've also started to pick up slowly again with shows like Attack on Titan and Space Dandy. The latter of which might very well be my new favorite anime. Some of my past favorites have been Trigun, GTO, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Dragon Ball Z, Hajime no Ippo, School Rumble and Neon Genesis Evangelion. I also used to read manga with my favorites being Ranma ½, Dragon Ball and Detective Conan. Naruto was the only long lasting series that I've been following lately, though that came to it's end. Nowadays I've also started to get more into western comics like Fables, Y: The Last Man, The Walking Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy among other superhero comics. I follow many western cartoons like Archer and South Park. I don't follow many "real" TV shows, but currently watching Better Call Saul. I'm a huge fan of Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. My favorite movie series is Star Wars.

I'm fueled by music, but I always had impossible time trying to describe my taste. Even when I really like few songs from some artist, I rarely get around looking more into their other stuff. Some of the few artists / bands I've looked bit more into are Pentatonix, Queen, Scatman John, The Silent Comedy and Voltaire. I also listen a lot of nerdy artists on Youtube, like my favorite, Gavin "Miracle of Sound" Dunne. If you want to know more about my taste, my profile's playlists has plenty of music I love. This playlist especially has many of my all-time favorite "real" songs. Here's some nerdy favorites and VG Music.

Some of my past obsessions have been mythology and folklore. As a kid The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Myths & Legends by Arthur Cotterell was my favorite book, my aunt's ex-husband had it and I would always read it and take notes when I visited them. Also used to love reading about all sorts of paranormal stuff, even though I never was a believer. I'm not very knowledgeable, but I love space and I'm an avid stargazer. I take lots of photos of moon and stars, even though my camera isn't great for that.

Favorite Quote(s):

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

― C.S. Lewis

No worries. I didn't even log on yesterday. ninja

Yeah, I could say that I enjoyed the second part of JoJo a lot more. I see. I've already seen Tokyo Ghoul in the past so I don't really need to be watching it on Toonami again.

Agreed. You've pretty much said what else needed to be said on the subject. The logic is rather weird when all anime characters aren't all Asian to begin with and people don't give out the same crap to them that white people get for playing PoC parts. It's certainly a bit hypocritical on their part. I'd like to believe that SJWs can't exactly pick sides when both sides happen to be doing it. But hey, screw logic, right?! There are plenty of characters in recent movies (Dr. Strange and the upcoming Black Adam movie) that have switched white characters with people who are different ethnicity. I don't have a problem with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson playing Black Adam or the guy who played Baron Mordo in Dr. Strange, but I do find it funny that people only care when a character is being whitewashed. Although I guess they only think that way because of that 'misrepresentation' malarkey that they also talk about. It really isn't worth trying to make sense out of all the SJW talk though.

Oh, I'm aware. I've already played Conquest and now all that's left is Birthright and Revelations. I might not end up playing Revelations digitally though because I don't want to support Nintendo of America because of their censorship decisions. We’ve already talked about the censorship in those games so we don't really need to bring it up again. I know where you stand and you know where I stand on the issue. To each their own! That said, the only time I’d probably be able to play all of Fates is if they brought out that Special Edition again with enough copies. At least enough copies to make it into the used market. It'd probably be like Konami trying to revive the Metal Gear/Solid franchise with Survive if Microsoft tried to bring Scalebound back out again. lol

I'm sure they have something planned for legendaries. I doubt they'd just drop them in the game like every other Pokémon. The chance of even finding one like that would most likely be super low.

Nope. I've never seen the need in having one. I did see a picture with the line-up of the tournament fighters in Dragon Ball Super so that did seem interesting. I finished watching the second part of JoJo with Joseph Joestar and Toonami has now put Tokyo Ghoul up in its place. The second season of Attack on Titan is also on Toonami, but I've only ever seen one episode of the first season. I need to watch more. Bungou Stray Dogs seems interesting.

I see. (Not much else to say here about GitS.)

I have heard that most of the cast in Fullmetal Alchemist happen to be European. (Excluding the Xingese and Ishval, of course. Basically anyone with different colored skin/facial features.) I knew that it didn't take place in Japan but I really didn't put much thought into it when watching the original series back in the day as a kid. People are just going to automatically assume "Oh, it's an anime so they must all be Asian" even if they clearly might be a different ethnicity that isn’t Asian. Another series Code Geass takes place in Britannia and I imagine most of them are European as well. They also have their fair share of different ethnicities in the series. Although people are just going to see any of the characters and think "Oh, they're in an anime so they've all totally gotta be Asian as well!". Take Sword Art Online for example, even though this character is clearly African-American, people would probably be dense enough to believe that he should be portrayed as Asian even when he clearly isn't. Unless they actually know that he's supposed to be African-American in the source material. I imagine it might have a lot to do with the art style of the anime as well but the place the series takes place in should tell a person the ethnicity of the characters unless proven otherwise. With all that said, Europeans playing Asians would be interesting to see.

I have no idea. It certainly isn't worth watching without the fanservice at least to me. Especially since the censorship is intrusive and distracting.

Yes, but I'm mostly just into Asian mobile games (Japanese, Korean, etc.) much like I am in real life with video games. With the occasional western mobile game that interests me. I still can't see the point in playing games like Game of War or Mobile Strike though. I'm also still not big into paying microtransactions especially with games I know that I won't enjoy or play for very long. That doesn't sound too good. I couldn't stand a phone that gets as hot as lava. I still need to play Fire Emblem: Birthright and I'm looking forward to Echoes. I only know about the Fate series in passing but the new game piqued my interest. I imagine that Microsoft is just protecting the trademark/IP, but here's a short article about it.

It’s definitely sad but I wouldn't be surprised if people are just done playing Pokémon Go. A lot of people might come back when they finally add trading in or player vs player battling however that'll work. They're also supposed to be looking into changing up how gyms work and whether or not people will be able to change Pokémon moves. Haha. There's talk that they might put legendaries in national parks, but I don't think that they'd make them region exclusive.

Whoops! I meant to say that I've actually seen the third OVA of Ghost In The Shell: Arise and now only have one left to watch. I thought Funimation Streaming only had three but they actually have four.

Part 1/2

I see. I'd probably say that I'll continue to watch all of them but some have piqued my interest way more than others. I know that I'll definitely continue to watch Masamune-Kun's Revenge, Guilty Crown, The Silver Guardian, Akashic Records of b*****d Magic Instructor, Luck & Logic, Gintama, Fuuka and Maken-Ki. The others I've only seen either one or two episodes of so I can't really make a decision on them right now. People only care when a PoC character is being whitewashed. Even if the character in an anime is a different ethnicity (meaning not Asian) they don't really care because they automatically assume that they're always going to be Asian unless it's clearly like a black person in an anime or something.

Nope, I haven't. I did finally watch the second OVA of Ghost in the Shell: Arise though. I only have one more to watch and then I'm done. I'll probably watch the Ghost in the Shell movie when it hits Netflix or if I can rent it digitally on Amazon or Google Play. I'm glad to hear that it didn't turn out to be horrible though.

I know, right?! I guess you can chalk it up to the new rating systems and guidelines being stricter or something. It seems like they were less strict back in the day or maybe that’s just me. But I still don't see why they'd pick up a series like this if they knew that they're going to have to censor the content. Toonami finally got to the part where Frieza is resurrected in Dragon Ball Super over here. I also found an anime movie that I plan on checking out called ‘K: Missing Kings’. It's a sort of movie sequel to the anime series ‘K/Project K’. It's a series that I would highly recommend since it happens to be on Netflix. They also have a second season but it' isn't dubbed yet as far as I'm aware. The Magi series is also great on Netflix but a lot of it is left open-ended so I’m hoping they make more of it.

I haven't really been playing much in the way of video games lately. I've mainly just been playing mobile games like Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag, Injustice 2, Fire Emblem: Heroes, Pokémon Duel, etc. I'm waiting for the Nintendo Switch to get even more games before I even think about getting one. I'd most likely get a PS4 first before I got a Nintendo Switch though. Did you hear that Microsoft can't make their minds up about Scalebound? It's rumored that they've apparently trademarked the title and are in talks with another developer that isn't Platinum Games. That pretty much defeats the whole purpose though. I'm surprised Nintendo hasn't done much in the way of cracking down on all these third party Amiibo devices, but then again, I'm not going to criticize those who use them considering how crappy Nintendo has been with supplying pretty much anything they make nowadays. I'm looking forward to playing Mary Skelter (,which is coming over uncensored YAY!) Tokyo Xanadu, and Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star all on the PS4/PS Vita. The last one is already out. I just haven’t purchased it yet.

Part 2/2

Yeah, I've been out there for the last three weekly events they've had in Pokémon GO. Water Festival, (Water-type) Bloom Festival, (Grass-type) and now Adventure Week (Rock-type event.) I really wish they would stay consistent with all the event bonuses they do though. Lower distances to walk with buddy Pokémon, double experience, double stardust, double candy, etc. I don't know who has a big enough battery in their smartphone to be able to last through '6' hour lures during some of these events they do though. I think people would need an external battery/power pack just to keep going since the app is a major battery killer even with the 'battery saver' option checked on in the game options. I'm actually very close to getting a Tyranitar and a Forretress myself. I still have plenty of Gen 2 Pokemon and even a few Gen 1 Pokémon to collect/evovle. In fact, the only starter I have fully evolved is a Pikachu into a Raichu. lol The only people playing over here are either driving around in their cars or are spoofing their gps coordinates to make it so they can visit different locations without actually having to be there. Luckily Niantic is finally cracking down on GPS spoofers and all the bots that plague the game now. I see plenty of spoofers/bots and similar names in gyms now. I usually play by myself unless my brother has a day off from work or something. I did join up with my brother’s friends to play the game awhile one time back which was fun. This summer is also supposed to be legendary according to the market manager of Pokemon GO. Which might mean that they’ll finally roll out legendary Pokémon. I just hope I won’t have to travel far just to get one or even all of them.

Indeed. I've been doing good. I've really just been playing Persona 5 (I'm only 50-65+ hours into the game so I can't really tell you right now if the game and story will turn out to be as memorable as Persona 3 or Persona 4 was but so far it has been rather enjoyable. I can say that the combat is fast-paced and incredibly fun. I also decided against getting the 'Take My Heart Edition' mostly because Amazon couldn't decide if their stock had a defect or not. Turns out that the stock didn't have a defect when Atlus commented on the situation but I still just wanted to play the game and not have to deal with a product being cancelled or not cancelled.) The other thing I've been doing is just watching anime occasionally. Masamune-Kun's Revenge, The Silver Guardian, Akashic Records of b*****d Magic Instructor, Tenchi Muyo: War On Geminar, Clockwork Planet, Luck & Logic, Gintama, Guilty Crown, KADO: The Right Answer, Fuuka and Maken-Ki. I've only watched a couple episodes of each series except for a select few of them.

I was trying to watch this super fanservice anime series called Seven Mortal Sins, but it turns out that Funimation Streaming decided to get the censored version despite having shown other series like Air Gear or Maken-Ki that fully show boobs. (Though I do remember Air Gear censorsing genitals in that series in at least one scene. There could be more since I'm still watching it but it still showed off boobs.) The whole point to Seven Mortal Sins is the fanservice and the story is mostly just an afterthought. The censorship isn't even done well, by the way. It's all streaks of white/purple lights and the occasional pentagram that takes up a good part of the screen just to cover up a woman's genitals. If Funimation Streaming is going to show a series like this they should just show it uncensored especially considering that they have shown old series that aren't afraid to show nudity at least when it comes to boobs. The whole point to a series like this is the fanservice and I'll never understand why they feel the need to cover it up. emotion_facepalm And this isn't just me being a pervert. ninja My Hero Academia also seems to have have gotten a second season which I might start watching soon.

That's about it for me. How have you been?
