Author has written 10 stories for Higurashi/Umineko series, Tales of Symphonia, Persona Series, Code Geass, and Fate/stay night.

Was formerly The Azure Crow

Welcome. Whatever story or one-shot happened to bring you here, I hope you found it worthwhile. That's kinda what I'm aiming at.


Welcome to Profile v3.0. Consider this the 'phase 2' of this account. What does that mean? What makes you think it has to have any meaning?

About:

Gender- Male

Age- Over 18. That should be sufficient, methinks.

Interests- Reading, Writing (kinda obvious, I think), Reading/Watching Manga/Anime, playing video games, playing Visual Novels as well, card games (not on motorcycles, mind you), etc. Also appreciate hockey, of all the sports there are.

Favorite Genre(s)- Fantasy/Horror. Second favorite being a deconstruction of pretty much any genre, but mainly of those I especially hate (anime-wise being magical girl and slice of life).

Favorite Anime (In Descending Order)-
Code Geass
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Evangelion
Serial Experiments Lain
Durarara!
Madoka (For reasons mentioned above)
Attack on Titan (would be ranked much higher if not for the quality of the anime itself)
Lucky Star (the only decent slice of life in my book)

Favorite Games (In Descending Order)-
Dark Souls/Bloodborne
Persona 3
Kingdom Hearts
Shin Megami Tensei 3
Metal Gear Solid 3
Baroque (PS2/Wii)
Megaman Zero

Favorite Visual Novels/Light Novels (In No Particular Order, These Are All Awesome)-
Welcome to the NHK
Haruhi Disappearance (if there's any one thing you expose yourself to from this series, it better be this)
.Hack GU Light Novels
Fate/Stay Night
Tsukihime
Kagetsu Tohya
Another
Umineko No Naku Koro Ni
Sekien No Inganock
Steins;Gate
Steins;Gate Linear Bounded Phenogram
Forest
Dangan Ronpa
Kara No Shoujo
Higanbana No Saku Yoru Ni, The First Night
Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni

I could go on but I won't.


What to Expect from My Writing:

Trolling. Lots and lots of trolling. At least if I'm writing for When they Cry. Also symbolism. Not necessarily Gainax level (because I don't think anyone can even attempt to replicate Gainax symbolism), but you get the idea. Also bad endings, or at the very least bittersweet. And (possibly) deconstructions of- or at least huge twists on- mostly everything I write. Except for When they Cry. Because that series is twisted enough as it is. Anyway, you've been warned.

For the most part you'll be reading Mind Screws, and quite a few of them. I do, however, have some less convoluted stuff in the works.


Current Goings On (aka The Part That May Be Interesting):

Completed Projects-
Cicadas, Volume I: Case of the End Dreamer
Cicadas, Volume II: Dirge of the Furthest Future


In Progress (And Their Estimated Length)-
Fate for Pigs (100-200k)
A King's Crossing (100-200k)

Purgatorio (On Hiatus, Permanent or Otherwise)-
Persona: Reverse Rebirth (200-300k)


No Promises, But For Now In the Works (And Their Estimated Length) (Now With Cryptic Titles So You Won't Know Exactly What's Being Planned)-
Symphonia Part 3 If People Ask Nicely (5-10k)


And that's everything I have to say about that.
