Russian-born Canadian who's gradually evolved into a self-aware fanboy. Now a moderator of the Characters and People sections of Anime-Planet, as well as the Anime and Manga Tac Committee. It requires serious mental effort for me to not rate everything at 4's and 5's, but I seem to be holding out so far.

I'm a nerd of various flavours, including books and music. And anime, oddly enough. Started out by watching stuff on AdultSwim way back when. Then I learned there was more to life than bad dubs (which I never watch anymore, really). I have some Japanese learning software that I just recently started actually using.

If you have any questions feel free to ask. I'm generally fairly open about most things, and try to be nice when I feel I can :3


Ratings

"What did this bring to my day?" / "What did this bring to my life?"

0.5: Speak of this again and there will be nought but pain. Either I couldn't find anything of worth in this production, or it was outright offensive to me in some fashion.

1.0: It didn't make me want to erase the previous 20 minutes from my mind. Let's not discuss it further than that if we don't need to.

1.5: Too many things went wrong to salvage the worthwhile pieces. "Would I recommend this?" I can't imagine doing so.

2.0: Lots of things went wrong, or there was a smaller number of critical flaws. "Would I recommend this?" Only under very specific circumstances.

2.5: It has problems, sure, but it still made me smile, or think. Below average. "Would I recommend this?" If it came up in context.

3.0: It made me smile, or think. It had problems, but it made me smile AND think. Above average. "Would I recommend this?" If it crossed my mind. "Could I have written this better?" Probably.

3.5: Good all-round experience, or strong enough in its core factors that it overcomes its flaws. "Would I recommend this?" Almost certainly. "Could I have written this better?" Maybe.

4.0: Excellent work all round. Maybe a little rough around the edges, or gets mired in its concepts by the end, but still innovative/dramatic/enjoyable. "Would I recommend this?" To anyone who will listen. "Could I have written this better?" Probably not.

4.5: One of the best experiences I've had with anime. Did the very best it could with what it had.

5.0: One of my all-time favourites. Accomplished something truly special in my eyes; some sort of filmographic alchemy may have been at work.

I have a wierd rating sistem... I admit. In theory 5 and 4.5 star anime are the only ones I consider worth of mention...

But the fact is I watched a shit load of anime... there is a big difference between us on that matter...

Well I miss a lot of things, deny being probably the most crutial.

I gave NGE 5/5 since it really is my favourite anime... though I reviewed is as 8.5... and I believe I was somewhat objective... though I wrote it while ago when my writing skills were quite low... could redo it sometime soon.

I must say that I find your rating to be quite wierd if anything (yep stalked your anus). Never saw a person who gets Evangelion and votes it low... though I can understand why you did. I guess I just apreciate some things more... or something like that... dunno. 

Rated FCLC 4.5... high five bro!

one player CAN'T... TYPO SORRY... though it is not only that, I really detest whole sistem in general. Lack of balance, terrible mechanics, downright retarded unoriginal heroes, servers, community and a lot of others....

I gave up on League a long time ago, mainly because of sistem. I hate the games where 1 player can win solo... no matter how fat you get, no matter how much more income or what not you have... you can barely take on 2 of them. In Dota... problem solved *trollface*

Being bad is not a bad thing, I know a guy that can pretty much do everything himself if he forces himself to pick something he knows how to play. Though I play pretty bad myself... I am a mere shadow of myself from year ago when me and my boy were 3500 elo machines on speed. Darer was such a marvelous port... fuck you hackers I say...
