I have loved anime since before I knew what anime was. I don't have the time to watch as much as I'd like to, but anime is something that I intend to grow old watching. In my opinion anime is one pf the best forms of storytelling. I plan to watch anime with my kids (when I have them :p).
Anyway some infos about me:
Animes I watch: pretty much everything if it is interesting. I don't like Ecchi, mostly if its sexist because I'm a feminist, but if there is fan service for both men AND women, I'm ok with it then. I don't like reverse Harems too, because 99% of those animes are about a undecided whiny and/or tsundere girl that can't do a danm thing for herself but ask for help and watch as a bunch of overall nice guys get screwed and killed for her. Reverse harem is NOT feminism, and I find ridiculous when people say it is. It would be only if the girl saved the guys arses (not in the last scene of the last episode), then picked the one she wanted(I'd watch that for sure). Also I don't really like moe, I think moe shows what japanese guys wish girls were like, but women are not like that and never will be. Depending on the moe it's ok, but some of them are just F*cking annoying (young and adult women behaving like a five year old...yeah, that's attractive ¬¬°).
Animes I won't watch: Not many. The only stuff I won't watch are animes somehow offensive to my personal values. Besides that, I'll pretty much give it a go at any style and genre.
Stalled: I intend to finish every anime I started.
Dropped: There are only 2 animes I could NOT finish. The worst of them is Antique Bakery. Ok, I LOVE yaoi, I really do...but I f*cking hated this anime. It felt slow, pointless, plotless and the main character Ono (I think this is his name) probably is the yaoi character I hate the most ever. I kept watching for seven episodes because I kind of liked the other characters but the (so called) story began to get more and more centered on freaking Ono. At that poit the only thing that would keep me watching was to see him explode,but I found that unlikely...so I gave up (for the first time ever).
My reviews: I just started writing reviews. The main reason I started doing it is because sometimes I forget if I watched an anime and what I thought of it. So it is something I do basically to keep track of what I watched and what I thought of it :p
Other reviews: I'm sorry I don't read any. I just don't like going to watch an anime with preconceived ideas that are not even mine to begin with. The most I do is read sinopses and recs.
Characters I ESPECIALLY want dead: Ono (Antique Bakery); Miaka (Fushigi Yuugi); Sakura (Naruto e Naruto Shipuuden); Rukia e Hinamori (Bleach); Cagali (Gundam seed); Kagome (Inuyasha); Kishimoto (Gantz...already dead \o/); Lambo, Reborn, Haru e Kyoko (Katekyo hitman Reborn);
Characters I ESPECIALLY love:
Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece) - I freaking love him, no other character makes me laugh as hard as him.
Kurono Kei (GANTZ) - The badass among badasses...also one of the best done character development OF ALL TIME (of course I'm talking about the manga)
Nara Shikamaru - I honestly would like the anime Naruto more if it was called SHIKAMARU. If Konoha was a democracy I vote Shikamaru for Hokage.
Ewon Jung (Totally Captivated) - This is a manhwa (??) character. He is the best uke ever on my favorite yaoi story ever.
Nico Robin (One piece) - what really set Robin apart for me from other female anime characters was how desperately she fought for her live and once she was freed (Ennies Lobby arc), even if she was all battered, bruised, abused, she didn't run while other people fought to protect her (cough...Rukia, Miaka, Kagome...cough). She got back in the fight, if they died they would die together (plus she is smart and kicks ass).
Ikari Shinji (Neon genesis Evangelion)- I think this character is a masterpiece in terms of characterization and complexity. He is the most human character I have ever seen on Anime.It is like he is a living, breathing 14 year old boy. He goes through all the fases a human would really go through on his situation: denial, cowardice, fear, numbness, bravery, despair, guilt, lust, friendship, trauma, pain, strengh. It is all there, plain to see. I think the reason a lot of people don't like Shinji is because he shows us what human being is really like...and it is not always pretty.
