Sometimes you won’t see a new post for awhile on 24FPS – but this is very much a still active blog that hasn’t been abandoned. I just don’t like forcing out posts just to say I made one. So please follow if you like my stuff – there will always be something new at some point.
Last “about me” update (barely one, but still) 11/30/2020
24 Frames Per Second has been around for a long time now and originated as a now-defunct forum/blog/booru under the name 2DComplex run by me and my brother way back in the early 2000s, with only the blog (run just by me) living on still almost multiple decades later. Much of the history has gone missing – primarily thanks to GoDaddy deleting it all due to a glitch in their auto-pay system leading them to believe a payment hadn’t gone through, not contacting me, and wiping everything; 8+ years worth of content gone in a moment.
The content of the blog is self explanatory; anime, games, and nowadays movies as well! My writing style is full of offensive and crude language as well as an abuse of dashes and CAPS which I use instead of italics or bolding text because I think it looks better. The word choices I make in terms of profanity or non-PC stuff is due to the fact that language was created by man as a tool to get across information as clearly as possible rather than designed to make you look “intelligent”. Emotion, intent, and meaning are a lot more clear and quick when you say something is “fucking retarded” instead of “quintessentially declared by one such as myself to be of a lower quality and standard than I would prefer or expect”. I’m not here to impress you with how I sound, but to put my feelings and thoughts out there.
If you’d like to contact me, just do it in the comments.
I’ve been into anime since I was eleven or so, although I never really got into things like DBZ – I was more of a fan of Sailor Moon, CCS, YuYu Hakusho, Slayers, a load of stuff that the video store slowly started getting (on VHS!) like Bubblegum Crisis and whatever else aired on TV like the movies on the Sci-Fi channel every weekend. I never became one of those types who thinks it matters or that any years of anime are better than another or that seeing more makes you a ‘superior’ fan- instead, being into anime so long has made my tastes really varied and open to anything and anybody. What I like or dislike anime-wise is entirely a show-to-show type of situation rather than based on random variables like if it has ‘enough moe’ or ‘enough blood and tits’ or any other dumb shit. Though I do have a big problem with people who follow the idea that they actively refuse to try shows out of their ‘comfort zone’ or who only watch old or “manly” anime. It’s all just pure ignorance and only serves to hinder the potential of the medium for them – anime should be enjoyed and you should not lock yourself out of certain content because of something as stupid as “it looks cutesy”.
My favorite studio is JC Staff, which I come off as a huge fanboy of when simply defending it for it’s factual historical impact on the industry and it being a powerhouse of masterpieces people take it as such. Luckily it’s died down drastically recently, but all the same here’s a list to back up the fact they are the best thing to ever happen to the industry: http://pastebin.com/nHDs03yy
I’m also a pretty big collector, not just figures and other merch, but I own a lot of DVDs, BDs, manga, doujin (all clean! I’m pure!), and even visual novels. Actually, I’m pretty pointlessly proud of my VN collection because a lot of them are rather rare or even just impossible to find ones (even in Japan), and almost all first limited edition versions.
My favorite game of all time is Star Ocean 2 (albeit I hate every game that came after it and what they did to the overall canon) followed directly by the Xenosaga trilogy (2 might be terrible, but it’s necessary), third favorite would be Trails in the Sky – and some other extremely close favorites would include the likes of the Atelier and Tales franchises. I’m also very fond of the Yakuza series and STALKER. I play western games as well, and the past couple of years loads of VRChat.
On a more personal level, I suffer from agoraphobia, autism, panic disorder, and social anxiety, so that might give some insight to why I come off the way I do. I avoid participating in the anime fan community in all forms; forums, other anime blogs, youtube, etc – as I really just can’t stand other fans so don’t expect me to know any references to said community or care about the opinions of anyone else in it, however I will totally have a discussion in the comments of my own blog of course and I appreciate any genuine comments left for me! I also am not “phobic” of any sort of person; I dislike a lot of people, a lot of groups, a lot of various things – but hatred, disdain, or even simple dislike is not a phobia, not a fear, but what they are stated as (hatred, disdain, or dislike). If you are going to “call me out” for something, make sure to do so about something that’s actually true.
