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.

 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?

Manga Achievements:

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

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!

Well, there isn't much to say about the first one. As long as you keep moving, you will get better. As long as you keep that in mind, what others think about it starts to matter less, or thats how it works for me.

The second one depends entirely on what kind of person you are. Basically, give everyone you want to meet a chance, since there's more to everyone than what first meets the eye. Maybe it's because I'm fairly open about my own issues and whatnot, but people open up easier if you want to talk and listen to them seriously.

Have you released / put online any of your stories btw? I'd love to read some of them ^_^

Haha, you must do what you want ^_^ I was stubborn enough as well to push through the shitload of filler :), but be prepared for a lot of mediocrity and vicious attacks on your will of perseverance ;)!

In fact, i have been writing fantasy stories too, since about my 11th. My younger brother is a huge fan, but I've almost completely stopped writing the past few years. It might be a good idea to pick it up again in due time... :D

Ciao!
