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.

Your welcome! Naw I will openly admit I liked Durarara much better than Baccano. I guess a part of my opinion is based solely on bias, as I kind of hate the whole Mafia/America in the 1920-90's era or whenever they were in power. Durarara is also something many people who watch anime can relate to. Attempted suicides, high school dilemmas, and relations between friends. Keep up the blogs, we have very little good ones as it is on this website so seeing something worth reading in the blogs section is quite a treat haha.

glad you are enjoying it ^__^ it's been a while since anyone has really cared about these MM events honestly and it's nice to know some people still join in and have fun.

As for Macross... you can either go Chronological order if you are anal like that or you can go by air date. most people like to do it by air date (that's the one i'd suggest honestly) but each of the macross series are very independent of each other so you can watch them in any order you wish if you don't care about catching small minor tributes jumping from series to series that is. you'll notice them for sure going by air date.

Macross Plus is my absolute favourite of the entire franchise and in my top 5 anime of all time :)
