My name's Jesse. I'm strange, extremely socially awkward and an ex-cynic. Putting anything but ketchup on burgers is heresy. My hobbies are always changing, so there's sometimes long lulls in my anime watching.

Here's a cool picture of Hank Hill:

I rate animes based on how much I enjoyed them. Aspects such as animation, characters, audio, etc. mean nothing if I didn't enjoy it overall. By far, what I care about most is the plot. Also, I tend to research animes before watching them, as to avoid turds. Once upon a time I went and saw a movie called Dream House in theaters -- This taught me the importance of reviews. However, the side-effect of this is that most of my ratings will always be above the 6/10 threshold.

I noticed that the sheer amount of choices in my life was paralyzing me with procrastination, thus I devised a system for choosing activities. This obviously also relates to anime, so if you suffer from a similar first world problem, please keep reading:

Select five anime that you've been meaning to watch for awhile and put them on a list. Upon doing this, use a list randomizer (I recommend random.org) to select which one you will watch. Upon finishing the chosen anime, you need to put a new anime onto your list to bring the total to five again; this is very important, as it keeps the choices random and not expected. Keep repeating this cycle, and you'll slowly but surely tackle the backlog! Everything you put on your list will eventually be chosen. I recommend choosing shorter anime with this system, as being locked into a large time commitment via a random number generator may be a little daunting and discouraging.

Baki the Grappler...hum, never heard of it o.O but I won't watch it then xP

an anime that I dropped really soon too was jigoku shoujo, it's a story episodic anime, I hate those kind of animes :\ that's also the reason why I can't watch Gintama even though everybody loves it...

Last Exile, I think I've heard of it but I never searched for it so I don't know what kind of story it is and I never saw any image of it o.O but I'll consider search for it when I don't know what to watch ^^

yeah I know x)

 

oh it happened the same to me with Inuyasha, but I really dropped at episode 34 or 35, around that, I don't like forcing myself to watch anime when I don't like it, anime is supposed to entertain me, not the contrary, that's the way I think so when the anime is big and I don't like it I simply drop it, if the anime is around 12 or 13 episodes then I try to finish it x)

Steins;gate is in my top 5 ^^ I really liked it :)

 

oh I started Victorian Romance Emma, meh, it isn't bad but I was expecting something better, I'm glad it only has 13 episodes ^^

I was thinking in starting Kanon but the art is so not attractive >.< everytime I think of that art it makes me not wanting to watch it although a lot of people have told me to watch it, but once I finish Victorian Romance I'll definitely start Kanon ^^
