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. 

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

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 (or even three). I'm pickier now that I've watched more. Still, I don't change the star rating unless I've rewatched the show.

Favorite anime: Gungrave

Favorite genre: Sports anime.

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

My avatar is from Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle. I read the whole manga and watched the anime but the manga is far superior to the anime. The anime doesn't follow the plot of the manga and it has a lot of fillers. So if you ever get the chance I highly recommend the manga Tsubasa. =]

I haven’t watched Earl and Fairy yet but maybe once I'm done with all the great anime you recommended I'll watch it. =] I really like fantasy anime, it might be even my favorite genre.

Regarding Count of Monte Cristo, it has a very unique are style.

I was wandering what got you into reviewing anime or blogging about it?

Thanks, I hope you enjoy The Count of Mont Cristo. Now that you mention it, I must have read your blog about Hikaru No Go and Shion No Ou some time ago. Well it probably was back when I first finished Hikaru. Well anyway I am watching Shion No Ou right now and I really like it. So I now I have to thank you again. =]

I will definitely look into the other recommendation because we seem to have a lot of anime we both like.  I think I’ll be watching Gungrave after I finish the anime I’m watching now. As for Daughter of Twenty Faces, so far it’s getting better with each episode.

Oh yea I was going to ask you if your avatar is from Earl and Fairy? It’s pretty.

Well maybe I would find it easier to look at your custom lists but I think it would be kind of boring. Contrary to what you might think I really enjoyed reading your long comment. It gave me a good idea on what to look for when looking for an anime for you.

To tell you the truth I did found many similarities in terms of anime we watch. I also avoid anime that are slow paced and/or focus on ecchi I also don't like harems.

Now to recommend some anime. Two titles came to my mind as I was reading your comment, first a romance/drama called Rumbling Hearts or Kimi ga Nozomu Eien I think it's good but you might find it a little over dramatic.

Second, well I was going to say Hikaru No Go but I noticed you already watched it so I’ll go with Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo it’s loosely based on the novel The Count of Monte Cristo but I found it interasint.

That was a long comment oh well I’ll let you know if I find something else. How about you any other recommendations?

Yea I'm also watching Prince of Tennis anime and haven't read the manga. But the anime is really one of my favorites.

Well I started watching Daughter of Twenty Faces but I think it's too early to voice my opinion on it. I'll be sure to let you know once I finish it. Maybe some day I'll help you find an anime you'll enjoy but that might actually be a challenge considering I'm not sure what exactly you are looking for in an anime. But I'll be sure to keep a look out for anything interesting.

So what kind of anime do you like?

Hey!

Well I guess I'll start of by apologizing for the random comment. xD Anyway, I was randomly browsing Anime-Planet when I found you recent blog about Daughter of Twenty Faces. I wanted to watch that anime for a while now but after reading your short "review" of it, I'm going to go and finally watch it!

So thanks.

Oh yea I also noticed you like Prince of Tennis too.It's a great anime/manga isn't it?
