about me

I'm an adult who is young at heart. I walk boldly into the "teen" sections of nearby libraries to pick up manga. This world is dark enough already without my entertainment choices all being full of violence and pain. There's nothing wrong with wanting some sunshine in my life, with cheering for the hero, or with sighing over the impossible romance. I embrace the pure, vibrant spirit of youth...

Which means that my tastes and favorites aren't ever likely to grow up. Sorry for anyone who hoped I'd move into more mature territory one day. XP

I use exactly 200 words in my anime and manga reviews, which is enough to be helpful, but too few to be dull. (Hopefully.) I'd love it if you read a few and let me know what you think! ^_^ The exceptions are long-running series, one shots, and any other misfits I encounter.

After realizing that the more anime I watch the more pointless my old rating system became, I asked Sunagan if I could steal hers. Because she's awesome, she consented. ^_^ I added 1 and 0.5 stars because I didn't want to change the way I had rated the worst shows thus far.

  • ½ star = so atrocious that slitting my wrists seemed like a merciful alternative (1-1.5/10)
  • 1 star = bad, tasteless, boring and unremarkable. not atrocious, though (2-2.5/10)
  • 1½ stars = just on the border of acceptable/unacceptableness (3-3.5/10)
  • 2 stars =  below average, but not in danger of failing yet. (4-4.5/10)
  • 2½ stars = passable, but average anime. I did enjoy this moderately. (5-5.5/10)
  • 3 stars = average, but with something that makes it stand out a bit. (6-6.5/10)
  • 3½ stars = very enjoyable with special moments among the usual fun levels (7-7.5/10)
  • 4 stars = a great series with some minor flaws, it did greatly impress me (8-8.5/10)
  • 4½ stars = fantastic + incredibly addicting, engraved in my memory forever (8.5-9/10)
  • 5 stars = masterpiece (9.5-10/10)

 I've started compiling my most noteworthy anime achievements.  These are feats that I don't recommend, because they left me reeling for a while. Don't expect the list to grow longer any time soon. After all, if these were easy, they would really be achievements, now would they?

Anime Achievements:

  • 50 episodes of Naruto filler in 48 hours- May 6-7, 2010
  • Finished watching all 85 episodes of Naruto filler without growing to hate the franchise- June 11, 2010

Manga Achievements:

  • I shall have to redo my manga marathon. It really is a shame; I think I was up to maybe 500 pages?

I should also challenge myself to do something else that's impressive. Hmmm...

Aaaahhhh but you know a lot of people started out hating one piece ^_^... It took me til ep 50 til i could tolerate the art style and until further til i even started to like it... I was sooo close to dropping it all the time til ep 37 or so.. My one piece love had the rockiest start i ever had with anime ^_^. I can say only one thing: show perseverance and you will be rewarded xD!

Haha, lol at the inuyasha comment ^_^... It's funny but the more anime i watch the more i recognize when looking at other people's watching lists, like Toradora and stuff like that (*aware of the total obviousness and uselessness of this comment*). You seem to be doing well with naruto... I always thought bleach was about the closest you could get to naruto, so once you're fed up with naruto you do have somewhere else to go ^_^... *totally loving shounen and drooling over naruto, bleach, one piece and hajime no ippo*...

Hi! How are you doing at the moment ;)? If I'm not mistaken you have updated your profile recently, nice! Haha, I think there are indeed a lot of people on AP who will happily call themselves otaku (including me, although even I went through a fase of denial first... I'm particularly obsessed with anime and japanese, not with the calligraphy and flower arranging stuff, hehe) ^_^!

I've tried to update my profile too, and it's getting really nice although it's so long that i fear nobody will have the courage to read it anymore, meh! Anyway, i have two good recommendations for you :)! Clannad and Clannad After Story both have romance, drama, and some mystery/fantasy elements to it. Clannad After Story was the first anime to seriously make me cry...

Oh, and I see you've got inuyasha stalled xD. In fact i rushed through the series till about ep 100, then i got extremely bored and waited 2 month until i could get myself to slowly keep watching until it got interesting again around 135 (LOL). I know how you feel xD.

Ciao!
