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.

I....can't stand twincest ._. Being a twin myself, the thought scares me. Luckily there wasn't many chapters *shivers* (was reading it just to pass through some old submissions)

If that Shoujo has anything to do with mr. brother, I'd rather not. However, if it's yuri... then I might even put it a bit higher on my list... which doesn't mean much, tbh.

Yo dawg Sasami was not my cup of tea. I can’t really appreciate a show that’s aimless comedy and waifu porn when I don’t find it funny and I didn’t like its assets, if you get what I mean. If I don’t like that, there’s about no reason whatsoever for me to follow it. If I muster some strength to watch it till the end, I might even rate it properly. As it is now; 2 episodes of something I didn’t like in any way… no way I’m rating it higher. Besides, it’s fucking Shaft. Everything they made is comedy/waifu pron. I got sick of it already. Actually, it’s not like they ever tired to involve some sort of coherent plot… oh wait, Madoka. My bad.

 Life? Pfff. Pretty shit I must say. I’m studying for my life deciding exams while getting distracted at every corner of the internet. You know, fan fic, A-P, Reddit… stuff. Every time I open a book a notification pops up and fucks me over. I’m coping with it of course, but man; I’d kill for a bit more focused brain. At least I got psychology covered, so I’m good atm. Well, they all start in May, so I’m probably overreacting, but still…

 So, watched anything good lately? :3
