Hi, I'm DMB 1. Welcome to my profile. Currently W.I.P:
Considerate la vostra semenza:
|~ Ulysses's speech, in The Divine Comedy: Inferno, Canto XXVI|
The verses that I support, am neutral about or oppose. It usually depends on my personal experiences on them (or sometimes, from the lack of them), and on my personal tastes.
Verses I support:
- Doki Doki Literature Club!: A neat little video game, that while at first may seem like any other dating simulator, it becomes a 4th wall breaking/psychological horror madness. I admit, after playing it for the first couple of times, it kind of loses its touch, but it still has a good "villain", and even the side characters have a bit of a hidden side, the music is absolutely great, and the easter eggs are always nice to find... And creepy...
- DOOM: I really liked playing Doom 1 and Doom 2 when I was 4 to 6 years old with my dad, and those were very nice games. I even played the 2016 game, and it was just as good.
- Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball GT: ... How clichè, I know. While the series has never stuck on to me, I enjoy Dragon Ball Z and even GT, but I haven't watched/read the original Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball Super, however, is a huge drop in quality...
- Godzilla (Universe): One of my favorite movie series ever. I'm really attached to Godzilla as a character (or better, characters), and while some movies, in terms of quality, can be from mediocre to bad, or just... Weird [...], others are just great.
- JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Great anime/manga. While Part 1 may not be appreciable by all, and when I first watched it, I didn't really understand why people found this anime to be so good, Part 2 just blew me away. Part 3 is pretty good too, but I don't like Per 4 as much. Part 5 seems to be very cool though, or maybe I'm just biased because it takes place in Italy. The characters are good too, and I have my own opinion on them. There are some of them that people like but I dislike, while others that people dislike, but I like. The music is fantastic.
- Konosuba!: Actually an Isekaa anime that I like. It's very funny and entertaining, and always manages to cheer me up, but despite being so light-hearted, it still has some suspenseful moments. My favorite character has to be the protagonist, Satou Kazuma, because of his personality and attitude, which heavily contrasts with that of the female cast, and so adds up to the humorous factor during character interactions.
- Marvel Cinematic Universe: A good movie series with go characters, good action scenes, and interesting plots overall. I really like to watch its movies with my friends whenever a new installment of the series comes out at the cinema.
- Monster Musume:... I mean, it's obviously another harem Ecchi anime, but with mythological creatures instead of normal girls, but for what it is, it isn't bad at all: the girls have their own unique personality, their own stories and chapters based exclusively on one of them each, and them being monsters opens the possibilities to make tons of jokes, and sometimes even arcs. The protagonist, while still being your average emotionless harem protagonist
and having those damn embarrassed white eyes 96% of the times, isn't so bad either. Another thing I really like about it is that at the end of the manga volumes, there are those little encyclopedic pages with information about the girls and their species (as well as their sizes), which remind me a lot of when I was a child, when I loved to read animal encyclopedia, something that I like to do even to this day. And obviously, the plot is good.
- MonsterVerse: The Kaiju Cinematic Universe, basically, and I like it. It has good special effects, entertaining action scenes, and it is building an interesting world of its own, and it does respect the various Kaiju characters, such as Godzilla and Kong, while still, differentiating them from their other incarnations. My main problem though is that the human characters are pretty forgettable most of the time, and I hope they can fix this problem. I'm looking forward to Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters.
- Ninjago: One of the most memorable cartoons of my childhood, and making profiles for its characters was actually one of the things that kept me on the Wiki. While I don't think it's nearly as good as I thought as a child, it's still decent, and I manage to enjoy it even to these days.
- Shin Megami Tensei: While I'm very new to the series, and I've played only 1 or 2 games, I'm really interested in going further: the RPG elements are nice, and music kicks ass and the stories of the games seem to be good too. What really pushed me into starting to follow the series, was the overall Demon them, in fact, I've always been fascinated by mythologies, religious cultures, as well as their deities, demons and other creatures, including Abrahamic/Christian lore.
- Team Fortress 2: A really good FPS game, with numerous playstyles, funny characters, and many
hatsweapons for each classes to choose from, and it never gets old. I do recommend it: it's F2P.
- The Real World: Well, I could I not support the verse where I actually live in? To be honest, I'm more so amazed how cool the concept of a Composite Human really is, and its success in Versus Threads. Debating battles that include real-life animals and prehistoric creatures is fun too, especially because I really like those two.
- Yu-Gi-Oh!: A card game that I somewhat like. I "joined" at the Xyz era, hence why the only anime of the bunch I fully watched as of right now is ZEXAL (which isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be), but later dropped it. Despite the tremendous power-creeps that the game is subjected to time to time, I still happen to come back to it every once in a while, to see what's the new "meta", and I enjoy discussions about the game's current overall state, as well as some deck-builds and plays. I also still follow YouTubers like Rank10YGO [Rata], who are very entertaining.
Verses I'm neutral on:
- Nasuverse: Well... I'm not really into the Fate series. It's very long, and difficult to catch up to. I've watched "Unlimited Blade Works" (and yes, I do know that I should have begun with the original Fate/Stay Night, but UBW has an Italian dub, so screw you), and I have very mixed feelings about it: the idea of historical (and mythological) figures coming back to life (with sometimes different genders) to participate to a tournament always seemed a bit odd even to me, the 48 minutes long episodes were dreadful, and the ending made no damn sense. I'm not gonna play "Fate: Grand Order" because I can't even find it in the Play Store, and from what I know, I would have to spend a lot of time playing it to get the go of it, so probably no the best option for me. I am starting to watch Fate/Zero, but even if I watch all the animes, I don't think that I will get into this verse very well. But hey, as long as there are good waifus, there's still hope...
- Nintendo: I've legit never owned a Nintendo game or console, and I've played only few Nintendo games ever in my life, and for a few minutes each AT BEST, and the ones I played never left such a good impression on me. Needless to say, I'm not a fan of games like Mario Bros, Pokémon or the Legend of Zelda, nor do I care about them in any particular way, but I don't necessarily hate them, hence why I'm neutral on the company and the verse/s. Though, I watched a considerable amount of episodes of most of the Pokémon animes and... They've all felt like pointless filler of a neverending toy commercial.
- Sonic the Hedgehog (The Universe): The Sonic Series is one of those that people have very mixed opinions about, but most of them agree that it definitely isn't in its best shape: some games have bad gameplay, others have bad stories and portrayal of the characters, others have both. While the only games I've played of the series were Sonic Unleashed (the Wii/PS2 version) and Sonic Rivals 1 and 2. Unleashed had a very good story and was fun (though at times it was particularly tedious), and the two Rivals games weren't bad either. Looking at the rest of the franchise from an outsider's perspective, I don't think that some things are as bad as people make them out to be, and I especially disagree with people saying that "Sonic should have just been Classic Sonic", or "Modern Sonic is bad", and it's even shown by games that tried to bring Classic Sonic back, but failed (Generations and most importantly Forces). What worries me the most is Sega, which has no idea where to take the franchise and the character of Sonic himself, and has to use cheap fanservice to (try to) please the fans, which ends up not being what they want, and making things even worse. And that new Sonic Movie coming out doesn't seem to be any better...
- Touhou Project: This franchise looks overall interesting and I would like to give it a shot, but frankly I have no idea where to start from and I kind of just suck at those types of games. Staying neutral for now.
