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.

oh, it's ok, don't worry x)

really? I actually liked the tale of memories, tale of melodies wasn't so good though but I still liked it. Lobotomize yourself with a spoon? xD do you mean by that that you hated it?

yeah, I already finished Romeo X Juliet, I think it was really great until episode 13 or 14, from there on the story isn't so interesting, I think that the fact that it had fantasy kind of made me loose the interest, it would be better without so much fantasy >.< I'm ok with the flying horses though xD

I agree, I really cried a lot with the after story, but I also cried with other animes such as Code Geass R2, ano hana, among others x)

I also cried with manga, especially with Watashitachi no shiawase na jikan, have you heard of it?

Steins;gate is good in every episode, so don't worry, even the 1st episodes are really nice to watch, and the characters are all amazing, I love them all *.*

 

oh, I didn't enjoy the 1st season of Clannad but the after story was really nice ^^
