Hey ya'll!

Well, I'm just an amateur anime watcher, I'm new here, and I hope I'll have the chance to enjoy my stay here. (this was written 5 years ago, now I'm not so new lol)

My Top 5 Anime (outdated)

  1. Gunslinger Girl
  2. Death Note
  3. Cromartie High School
  4. Elfen Lied
  5. Planetes

I could say Gunslinger Girl kinda dragged me into this, as it was one of my first japanese animation experience. So it'll always stay as my favorite and special anime. After GG titles like Serial Experiments Lain, Paranoia Agent, Elfen Lied and then later Death Note completely made me a fan of this genre. If you haven't seen any of these.. lucky you!

I follow my simple how-much-was-I-entertained rating system. So if I gave Monster, for example, a low score it doesn't mean I think it's a bad anime. It's good, but I found it too slow, didn't like the ending, or any other elements which drags my entertainment level down decides how many stars it'll get. So basically my thoughts after I finish a show are more or less as follows:

3.5 and up - from good to very good, entertaining watch.
3 - average, ok.
2.5 - just plain mediocre.
2 and less - from bad to worst.

Well i finished the first season now, and it was amazing, loved every epiode! I watched the first episode of the second season too, but i was less impressed with its start, hopefully it picks up. Maan, i love K-On!! so much, i know a lot of people don't but it's pretty much the king of SoL's for me. 

My Baka account is sitting comfortable at 0.5, so i'm out of the danger zone at least, uploading is a pain in the arse though. Luckily 1080p's are freeleech or i'd be banned by now.

Hey man.

And i love Minami-ke, like absolutely love it. I laugh pretty much the whole way through every episode so far, and Kana is just tremendous. I love this type of SoL comedy though, i always have room for some *almost* plotless slice of life stuff! I've heard the second season isn't that great though, but that it picks up from there. I'm on episode 10 now so i'll have it finished soon then i'll move onto season 2.

Kaiji was awesome, but i accidentally transferred it to an external hard drive that i was filling for a friend of mines, so it's not on my computer anymore. And i don't fancy redownloading it and ruining my BakaBT seed ratio for no reason! I need to get that back though, so cheers for reminding me!

Glad you enjoyed it. I gave it a 4/5 in the end after some deliberation. It's not got a complicated story or chracters, but it's pure fun and it did what it set out to do very well indeed. The first 3 OVA's are out as well now by the way, so you might want to give them a go at some point.

And i still haven't watched any more SAO, i have so much stuff i actively want to watch at the moment that it keeps getting pushed to the side. Might pick it up again soon though.

I've never even heard of the hack// series before. Seems like there's a buttload of them though. I'll stick it on my WTW list and see what it's all about! 2002 though, it's be a long time since i watched anything from before 2006 that wasn't a Ghibli film or Dragonball!

That's exactly what i do, i always sit down with the intention of watching something then get sidetracked by a show someone else said was good. Yuru Yuri being the latest like that.

And Panzer was good good man, which really surprised me. It's definitely worth a watch. Let me know what you think of SAO as well, i watched the first episode but left it after that, figured i'd watch it all in one go at some point.
