I'm just some guy that loves anime, manga, and video games. I also really got into movies when I got my part-time job at a movie theater in very late August 2012. I really like learning more about how anime works, particularly the production and how well certain stuff does, the Blu-ray/DVD sales, as well as the light novel/manga boosts the source material can get (as the discs aren't the only thing that matter in most instances). I'm also a member of the GLORIOUS PHYSICAL MEDIA MASTER RACE and vastly prefer to own my media physically. Streams are nice for trying out a show, it's how I consume most of my anime these days, but they don't last and are usually not as of high-quality (and with simulcasts, are the TV version). I want something tangible (preferably a nice premium release) and to support the industry more.

I got into anime November 2008 when I was 14. I had watched anime casually when I caught it on TV since I was a kid on places like Kids WB, Cartoon Network and their Toonami programming block. When Toonami got cancelled I became rather sad and frustrated at the cancellation of the programming block in September 2008. Soon after I kept hearing talk about this anime called Bleach and tried it on [adult swim] starting with episode 87.

I quickly fell in love with Bleach which ended up becoming my gateway anime, and I still think well of it to this day, just not as much back when I was new to the anime fandom. I started watching more and more anime on [adult swim] such as Code Geass, Death Note, Cowboy Bebop, The Big O II, InuYasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, and later started to get into more shows not on [adult swim] like Suzuka, Shakugan no Shana, Karin, Lucky*Star, School Rumble, and quickly ended up becoming an otaku. Anime is now my biggest passion, surpassing video games which for the longest time was my biggest passion.

Note: Everything I have in "Want to Watch" isn't everything I want to watch. The mostly complete list of that can be found on my AniDB list.

How I rate:

5. Masterpiece
4.5. Excellent/Amazing
4. Very good/fairly good
3.5. Good
3. Decent
2.5. Mediocre
2. Bad
1.5. Really bad
1. How can one make something this bad?
0.5. Bad beyond belief, completely incompetent

Note: I don't rate off purely enjoyment as I've found that "Enjoyable=/=Good" and "Not enjoyable=/=Bad". Of course I usually enjoy good shows, and find nothing but pain through the bad. My scores are based off of how I feel the quality of the show is overall. My enjoyment score is fairly close to the overall the majority of the time. Also, I do not take art, animation, or sound into my scoring much as I tend to value characters and story more. You can have fantastic visuals, but if there's nothing helping to support that, the show usually falls apart.

Feel free to ask me what I thought about a show if the score isn't enough for you.  You can also look here for shows I feel are bad/mediocre that I at least decently liked.

Crap now I have to lower all my scores by 1 (just kidding, the guy is just very strict)

There is nothing as awesome as SE Lain but you could try the inferior but equally interesting Technolyze, Zegapain, Ergo Proxy.

Besides being my greatest rival for the throne of the best reviewer of all times? Just that he is a very mature and self-controlled guy with his own radio show and a way of writing that manages to appeal even to those who disagree. He is too generous with the scores though; he almost never goes bellow 6.

Time loops are in fashion now in the videogame era but they sure try a lot harder to make each one very different. Haruhi was the laziest of them all.

I think time loops are a cool concept but making them almost identical and about people who don't even care to change something is just a pain in the ass. The movie is better for having some mystery and Haruhi not being present all the time.

I understand how it is important for Haruhi to create the endless eight but at the same time I have seen something ten times better in the Beautiful Dreamer movie.

Make bold the most important sentence of each paragraph.
