Hello, i go by Aria.
I’ve seen every Key anime, though i haven’t really touched the games (money problems, and the time required is intimidating on a lot of them). I came across Kazamatsuri from googling discussions about CLANNAD - Hikari Mimamoru Sakamichi de.
I’m a theoretical physicist, metaphysicist, and philosopher. Self taught. I have a lot of huge scientific and fiction based projects on the go, and spend my downtime (and slump time) with anime and the like. While i wouldn’t call myself a diehard Key fan, stories like Clannad are very dear to me. Clannad changed me as a person when i first saw it; it told me many profound things like “explaining the world with the most beautiful words” and even just putting the lives of everyone into perspective. Everyone has their own troubles, and are usually victims of circumstance, i’m not convinced there really is any “evil” anywhere.
Before getting into life and spending time studying, i used to watch a lot of anime… I mean it, just look at my MAL… I still watch a fair bit. I consider myself a semi-expert on akiba culture (making me an honorary akiba-kei), and am well studied in psychology and tropes; i do a lot of fiction study in the things i watch/read, mainly because i seek inspiration and learning of how to articulate details in my own story.
If i might say, i’m pretty impressed with this very modern forum UI (tired of all the ancient board code around lol).
Well, you probably didn’t expect an intro like that, but that’s too bad, cuz i’m here! Haha.
