I joined Anime-Planet because I always found it difficult to find people with similar tastes who could recommend an anime that I would likely enjoy. Hopefully, there will be some people who share my preferences in anime and will find some of my recommendations and reviews helpful.

Here is some information about the kind of reviewer I am, as well as the kind of anime I am likely to enjoy or dislike.

As a rule, I do not review animes that I have yet to finish viewing in its entirety. I also wait a minimum of one month before writing a review, so as to let the anime fully settle in my mind. I consider myself rather strict with ratings, and I to penalize heavily for sloppiness and poor execution. In general, I am not a fan of Chibi-styled anime, nor do I watch horror anime. I have very little tolerance for fillers, and the general polish and finishing of an anime factors heavily into my reviews. I tend to prefer anime which requires thought and/or interpretation, though I am not averse to a simple hack-n-slash type of anime, as long as it is done properly.

As far as recommendations are concerned, I always try to recommend up or along the quality chain. You will never find me recommending an anime I think is worse than the one to which my recommendation is being referenced.

At present, 5 Centimeters per Second is my favourite anime, with a rating of 9.0. Any anime I rate above 5.0 I consider above average, and would probably be worth your time. The anime which comprise my top 5 list are not necessarily the ones I consider to be the best, but rather those which have provided me with the most enjoyment.

I read your nodame cantible review and was pretty impressed. Its one of my favorite animes and definitely the only one I have found that does pretty good justice to classical music, but I think your marked it up a bit to high especially on the animation category.

Have you seen Elfen Lied?
