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've had no problem with it, isn't impossible just not very plausible. I mean Geass and Death Note are full of things like that, I think I could name 5-6 more. But like I've said last 5 episodes make up for everything. In terms of people liking it its line NGE, some people love it others hate it. I met a guy (althrough he is hardcore emo so I don't count his taste as objective) hated it. And a Haruhi/slice of life fanboy. Serious anime watchers irl usually rate it 4, 4.5, 5 stars.

Story kind of crumbles on itself? What do you mean by that?

As for duality you still haven't seen the whole show, Lucy gets development later on.
