Hello everyone!

I've been watching anime ever since I discovered Toonami on Cartoon Network at the turn of the millennium. It began with Dragon Ball Z and progressed to Naruto after that. In 2002 I watched Spirited Away, which I thought was the coolest thing ever! I watched the movie every time it came on TV, making me a lasting fan of Miyazaki's works. After this I got into watching One Piece and Naruto consistently until around 2007. After that I began expanding my anime horizons by ordering various shows off of Amazon.com.

I am a lover of books, movies, and philosophy. Having studied the elements of plot for many years, I find myself constantly critiquing anime as I watch them. In some ways, Japanese animation can have shallow, clichéd elements that quickly bore viewers. In other ways, it can engross viewers in ways that American shows--live-action or otherwise--cannot. It really depends on which show you're watching.

My favorite genres are fantasy, shounen, and drama. I have always loved fantasy stories; I love shounen, perhaps, because Dragon Ball Z was the first anime I ever watched; drama, because the heart of any plot is drama.

I can speak a little of three languages besides English: Japanese, French, and Spanish. The art of communication is definitely something I love.

I do my best to write reviews accurately; however, I have a tendency to think about what I would have done with a particular franchise. If this annoys you, my apologies.

May good fortune find you!

I didn't even pay much attention to the romance at the end of Phantom because it really didn't matter to me. I can see where people would dislike the change of location but it didn't really bother me as much as the problems with the characters ages, specifically Cal.

Overall I really enjoyed Phantom. I thought it was the perfect example of good dumb fun. I thought it was really good.

Not entirely sure. There are so many that I love. I'm quite partial to Ginji Amano or Train Heartnet, but then there's Ryusuke Minami.

Thanks, it's great to be welcomed!!  And yes, it is a great thing to be anime-and-manga-obsessed XD

Thanks for the observation. I've had quite a bit of time to build up that number. I'm actually quite surprised that the number was so high.
