Hi, my name is...unimportant; I would like to keep some degree of anonimity! I have been watching anime since I was little however, it has only been a few years since I started "seriously" watching anime.

As a kid I did not know what anime was and I watched dubbed shounen on television thinking they were normal cartoons. In the last few years I have truly become an anime fan, expanding my horizons beyond the simpler shounen that aired on television. When I discovered that 4 Kids' dub of One Piece wasn't the only dubbed option and I could watch Funimation's dub (or even better, the sub!), I became curious of other possibilities. From there I discovered the wide selection of genres anime offered and the avaliabilty of shows online. Shounen, Shojo, Seinen, Horror, Romance, Harem, Fantasy, Mystery, Action, Adventure, Magical Girl, Ecchi, Drama, Slice-of-Life, Bishounen, Bishojo, Mecha, Supernatural; I have a taste for it all.

It is my philosophy that every anime deserves a chance, despite ratings and preconceived notions. I strive to finish all anime I start; I can decide after I finish something if I truly like it. This is because the ending to an anime can change my perspective on all previous episodes. This is not to say the ending trumps all--sometimes the journey is more important than the finale.

My goal is to watch as many anime from as many genres and decades as I can. I am slowly building my catalogue of anime and hope to add many more in years to come.

It's fairly simple really, no major faults with each individual anime, it's just that I don't think they'll bring me the amount of pleasure I'd like from investing the time into watching them. Yu Yu Hakusho is definitely similar to HxH in some aspects, but it's premise is just so vastly different and a bit too cheesy for me to be honest. Also, if we look at the recommendations based on similarity, HxH is the 5th listed while Bleach is the most listed recommendation. Known fact: I hate Bleach.

Regarding Cowboy Bebop (and Trigun for the same reasons): I simply don't like the western theme. I think the characters are all well thought of and well made in general, I also believe the premise of each anime has good potential. It's just how they made it. The best way I can put it is I think these series would be best watched with an Eng Dub. I think it's more fitting to watch as someting not made in Japan. 

I know I'm terrible at explaining, but that's what I can come up :P

That's awesome that you started Shiki (keep me updated!), and thanks for the recommendations ^___^

So I won't miss a single thing if I skip the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime? That certainly does make me waaaay more likely to watch FMA Brotherhood >.<

Monster sounds like something I'd like, especially since I've been on the lookout for a good horror anime. Sounds like it explores human moral, which should be interesting. I'll have to try this one sometime :3

I see, you have some really valid points there. The big cast is something I did initially overlook. The amount of time invested into gatehering a big mass like that and actually make it work as well as it did is something remarkable on it's own really. The pacing is also very fitting for a movie as you said, I'll agree entirely to that. I'm a fan of the slower types of pacing overall, so movies tend to be a big minus due to the obvious lack of time. 

I think the reason I couldn't grow to like it at all is cause of the cheesy and cliché aspect of it all however. Just like you described, it's a very light movie and isn't stimulating at all. The plot and ending was easily unmasked at the inital revelation of the characters, especially that fighting bunny character. 

But thanks, you gave me some good perspective to it that I hadn't considered before. I don't think I'll change the rating I gave it, but it's nice to see things from a different side every once in a while.
