"Dying people lie too. Wish they'd worked less, been nicer, opened orphanages for kittens. If you really want to do something, you do it. You don't save it for a sound bite." ~ Gregory House
Hey there! If you have clicked this page, that means you are awesome! haha...
Hello! I am Ratnesh Rastogi from India and you can call me House if my Indian name is a bit difficult to pronounce. I am just your everyday avid anime/TV Show/ Movie viewer who has a knack for writing reviews. I do not have a specific genre that I like in anime, whether it be action, or fantasy, or psychological or even a shoujo or a josei demographic. As long as it is fun, I'm in. But still if I have to put my finger on it, I would go with Psychological, Thriller, Philosophical and Slice of Life.
When I watch an anime I like to go with the flow/pace that the anime presents. So, you wouldn't see me talking about the pacing too often. Also, I think that creating an anime takes a tremendous amount of effort and every anime is a work of art, so you won't see me saying things like "This show is crap" unless I am absolutely frustrated and raged out or got trolled into watching it.
I don't call myself a critic, or ever try to be one [Insert Birdman critic rant here]. And the most important thing to me in an anime is not the story or the characters or the animation, it is the fun. After all, that's how it's supposed to be.
"...modern day man. They trade all their life to try to get money, only to spend all of their money to try to get their life back. Not only that, they spend all their time so anxious about what's going to happen next that they never experience now. And they live everyday as if they're never going to die, only to die and never really lived." ~ Dalai Lama
I enjoy philosophy, classical music as well as rap, hip-hop and a little bit of electronic music. I also do a little bit of bodybuilding (not professionally) because I like the way the pump feels and of course having a good physique and being healthy feels darn good. I am bit of an introvert and sometimes get a little bitchy and hard to talk to, but I am trying my best to connect to as many people as I can. I respect every opinion as long as you don't try to shove it in my face. As I said that I like writing, so you can expect some long ass text walls as answers or replies. If you have no problem with that, then we're cool!
I like to believe that life is much broader than just having a degree, a job, a family and living an average life. I believe that we should evolve as a person and help everyone around us evolve into becoming the stronger version of themselves (yeah, I watch Elliot Hulse). Of course I'm not out here to change the world or anything, I just want to do whatever I can to make my life beautiful. I believe that we should just enjoy our lives. We're all gonna die someday, so how about you live in the moment and enjoy the present.
I really hate it when people say stuff like "you must suffer to achieve something" or "work now and play later." I believe that you don't have to "suffer" to achieve something, you just have to work hard. There is a difference between putting all of your mind body and soul into something and suffering. Also, work and play should be the same thing. And the best way to do that is to love what you do.
Okay, this is turning into a lecture now so I'll just stop. (I might even make a whole series of posts on this someday)

For now this blog is mainly going to be about anime, but I do plan to include a lot of other things as well (like games, TV Shows, or movies or content that I make with my friends). So, if you like what I do here and want to talk to me, just drop a comment at my post or contact me via the Contact Us page (my email is House@TheYorouzoya.com) and I will get back to you. If you have a suggestion for me or is there a giant bug on my page that I don't know about, anything you can help me with, I would love it.
