Russian-born Canadian who's gradually evolved into a self-aware fanboy. Now a moderator of the Characters and People sections of Anime-Planet. 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.

HOHOHO... wrong my friend. It's not extintion, it's renewal. Since every human can return to his original existing state (regain bodies) and emerge from LCL ocean. If you want I can explain and show solid proofs and of course a lot of quoting... want to test mah Eva knowledge... many tried...

Umm, I'm not so sure if we are speaking of the same thing but Evangelion generaly has an open ending. Even when everything ends (EoE), ending is still open, like Durarara! for instance. Everything IS complete but world still moves on... though hardly *trollface*.

Whoa, whoa... did you just think that I sad that original Evangelion series has inomplete plot... well somewhat yes. What made you conclude that ridiculous assumption, my son. I only said that EoE is bonus content for various things (including plot), but it is still finisher and ultimately the climaxt of franchise, which none the less also happened in Congratulation, in rather different way but still same. Hardcore Eva nerd speaking btw.
