Welcome. You've stumbled upon my profile. That sucks, because I'm not all that interesting.

Please call me Karasu. I've been hooked on anime for as long as I can remember, but what truly sold me was the premiere of Inuyasha on television in 2002. Toonami also had a hand in sparking my interests in the medium, introducing me to a number of great shows. I like to think my tastes are simple; I'll give anything a try, but I truly appreciate shows with vast, engaging characters and fun, intricate, or meaningful stories. I like to be able to feel the passion and hard work from the creators. I do have genres or themes I'm partial to; fantasy, shounen, historical, horror, action/adventure, shoujo/josei, and anything relating to feudal Japan, mythology, or youkai. I also dabble in manga, but do excuse my manga list; it's often poorly managed and neglected. 

Aside from anime, I'm an avid gamer. I play on both console and PC. As with anime, I'm open to most things, but I'm all for games with a story to tell. When I'm not spending my time on anime or gaming, I enjoy reading, writing, and recently, drawing and coloring. I'm slowly studying Japanese, along with various mythologies, and I'm a big fan of a band called the GazettE.

I'm married to Itachi Uchiha. I'm also a moderator for the anime and character databases here on Anime-Planet. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to ask. :)

Found and watched one more anime not present on Anime-Planet:

I'm sorry that I probably overload you with all these requests, but I just want to help expand the database.

Thank you for adding Chiryokumaru: I finally could post my review for it :)

However, I noticed that Anime-Planet misses Kanojo ga Kanji wo Suki na Riyuu - another web short (or more exactly, a series of two web shorts) created by Studio 4C to promote Japan Kanji Aptitude Test, just like Chiryokumaru:

I think it should be added too and connected with the Chiryokumaru entry, because it was made by the same studio and for exactly the same purpose.

Well, I'm glad that I could help a bit :)

Since you apparently don't mind that, I'll leave some new requests here. Before I write anything else, I'm sorry that this comment will probably look like a Chinese wall of text, but I just want to provide as much information as possible so that a correct decision could be made.

Change request:

Currently, this music video is tagged as Studio 4C's work. However, it's studio Gonzo's work according to English and Japanese wikipedia,

and it also has a page on the studio's site. The page is almost empty at the moment, but the very fact of its existence proves that Gonzo took part in making the video:

I should note that I've read several blogs and articles, including one article on ANN, stating that it's Studio 4C's work. However, their official page and both English and Japanese wiki pages don't have a credit for this video. So, it may be either a common mistake, or Studio 4C was somehow involved, but it probably wasn't a major involvement (maybe they just did in-between animation, or digital colouring, or some other secondary job for the video).

Also, I should mention that Kazuto Nakazawa was a co-director for this video according to his Japanese wiki page:

and the English wiki page for Breaking the Habit I've already provided above, but he doesn't have any credit for this video at the moment.

Addition requests:

1) Chiryokumaru - a web short by Studio 4C:

2) Delete Beach - a short Japanese/Norwegian co-production animated by Studio 4C:

The movie was already screened at festivals in Norway and Germany:

3) Curly - a web short directed by Tetsuro Kodama and animated by studio Echoes:

I should note that none of their works have been added to Anime-Planet so far:

Lol, thank you very much.

Hi, Karasu.

I want to make two anime requests, but since the forum registration is blocked for now, I'll leave them here, so that you, sothis, or whoever else responsible could handle them.

Change request:

Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight was not animated by Madhouse - it was animated by AIC according to numerous sources including English and Japanese wikipedia. Madhouse did the animation only for the Record of Lodoss War OVA.

Addition request:

Chains & Rings music video by studio Production I.G:

The singer is Russian, but the anime staff is entirely Japanese.

P.S. Sorry if I'm doing it wrong when leaving the requests here - I'm doing that only because I can't post in the forums at the moment.
