Hi there, folks! I've been an anime fan since I discovered Naruto in 2009. I've since found that I actually enjoy genres besides action.

Favorite anime: Gungrave

Favorite genre: Sports anime. Yes, I know Gungrave is not a sports anime.

Profile pic: Lydia from Earl and Fairy

Background: A family of dango. The two big ones are based on Nagisa and Tomoya from Clannad.

I spend much of my spare time aniblogging, watching anime, and otherwise hanging out in the aniblogosphere. But I also like to write about other subjects, run, hike, and battle with Grandma for the highest Bejeweled score. 

I'm a college student, and I working during the summer.

I mostly blog about anime. However, on occasion, I'll also write on other topics. Last summer, I got in the habit of posting every Thursday (now Friday), and guess what? I've actually kept it up, with a few exceptions due to homework. 

My star ratings are rather subjective. This shows most obviously when an anime is technically good, but offends or bores me. Also, I'm harsher with my star ratings than I was in my first year or two, so something I rated five stars in 2010 might now only be four stars. I'm pickier now that I've watched more. Still, I don't change the star rating unless I've rewatched the show.

Hey again! =]

I wanted to get back to you about finishing Daughter of Twenty Faces. I really liked it and it was a good watch. I'm kind of surprised I haven’t watched it earlier, oh well. So again thanks for the recommendation.

So what are you up to in terms of anime?

Thanks for your comment on my Toriko review!

I'm glad you enjoyed it in the right frame of mind, because it's definitely a fun little ride if you let it sweep you away. Of course, with a more in-depth adaptation coming, we all have a another chance to experience his culinary quest. IN THE FACE!

Yes, do let me know if you ever get a chance to finish Durarara and maybe you can even write a short review on it. =]

Oh yea I'm continuing watching Daughter of Twenty Faces. I think I'm on episode 8 and I'm really enjoying the story and characters. It really surpassed my expectations. Thanks for the recommendation.

Regarding the Count of Monte Cristo, I think I know where you are coming from. It's not the most relaxing anime out there. Plus the art might be... distracting.

So you are a fan of Naruto? I have watched a lot of it but I haven't started shippuden yet.

Well I'm glad you gave The Count of Monte Cristo a try. It is very unique which might not appeal to some people but I found it to be very interesting.

Oh yea another unique anime came to my mind it's called Samurai Champloo, it's an action oriented anime.  I thought you might like it because it is an action adventure. One thing that you might not like is that it is very episodic.

I agree with what you said about reviewing. They are time consuming and you do have to analyze everything in an anime (this reason might me the worst because it takes fun away from watching the anime). I also try to review but with no luck because of those things. Believe it or not I have never made a blog. Oh well

If you really enjoy it then good luck with becoming an official site reviewer. =]

I also noticed you are watching Durarara!!. When I once started watching it I dropped it before the first episode was done. So how do you like it? Do you think I should come back to it?
