“The world isn’t so complicated. Walk forward and you’ll find the future. Turn back and you’ll find your memories. Cut off a piece and you’ve got a story. This is just one small part of one such tale.”
The Definitive Description: I've been a pretty big anime fan for the past few years now, I grew up on shows like Dragon Ball Z, which despite being fairly miserable I still love unconditionally. My real love for anime didn't start until a few years back though, when I first watched Clannad, after that I had a fix for anime, trying to find something to measure up, and though I haven't found anything that has had the same impact as Clannad did, I'm still continuing to look, and enjoying plenty of other anime along the way. Now I tend to have anime fixes throughout the year, in which I'll watch a ton of anime in a short period of time, then I'll get burned out and won't watch much anime for a few months, rinse and repeat. As for my tastes in anime, well that's really all over the board, I tend to avoid long-running shows like Bleach, Naruto etc. Really the ideal length for me is about 24 episodes, though if it's a really good anime I don't mind going into the early triple digits.
Reviews: I have several up, though I'm still trying to figure out how I want to go about writing them, I'm not overly impressed with any of my current ones. Feel free to check them out and give me some feedback.

1. Spike Spiegel
2. Isaac & Miria (You can't have one without the other)
4. Furude Rika
5. Kiryuin Satsuki
5 Stars -The anime was top of the line. Whether it's due to the plot or the characters it was simply amazing. This rating is reserved for my top five and a few others, and as a general rule I have no big problems with any aspect of the show. It's also worth noting that I don't really like rating things 5/5 or 10/10, I tend to reserve such ratings for my top 5 anime, and little else.
4 - 4.5 Stars - The anime was great, however it likely didn't merit five stars because of some big problem I had with an aspect of the show, such as the ending, a bad arc, or a really annoying character.
3 - 3.5 Stars - The anime was good, it may have had some big problems or it just didn't do anything that really impressed me. Overall it was worth watching through once, but it doesn't amount do much more than that.
2 - 2.5 Stars - The show was bad, it wasn't worth watching due to a number of glaring errors throughout. It lacked a great plot or characters and in all likelihood it had a less than satisfying ending.
1 - 1.5 Stars - It was misery, if I made it through this anime it wasn't because it was any good, it was because I was testing my endurance.
0.5 Stars - Mother of God...
Interests not pertaining to anime:
Sleeping - It's a passion.
Bacon - I really love bacon.
SNES - Can't beat the old stuff. FFVI - Still my favorite game.
Dota 2 - I must be a masochist to enjoy being a part of this gaming community.
Boston Legal - Possibly the greatest show ever made. Denny Crane.
Studying endlessly - I'm a grad student now and sometimes it seems like all I do is read, sleep and eat.
A Song of Ice and Fire - George R.R. Martin is kind of the man, love the Song of Ice and Fire as well as the Game of Thrones show. However, much to my dismay I've become that guy who complains about how the show isn't as good as the books.
True Detective - One of the best shows I've seen on tv in years, and it's hard to beat those Rust Cohle quotes.
