Been watching anime on and off since 1999 (but only started watching really avidly again at the beginning of 2012). Had a big re-introduction in the autumn of 2006 but I cover that in my blog.
I dont have any particularly favourite genres, I will give any series a go as long as its good :)
My other love is gaming. I am a big retro gamer and collector with nearly 500 different titles across 20+ consoles :)
I would also like to start an anime DVD collection, but with publishers in Europe being about as competent as a sloth with disorientation sickness, they are making it difficult >_>
Thanks for visiting! :)
I use my anime ratings (out of 5 stars) as an accurate impression of my opinion of said series/movie/etc. So here's a chart to what each rating means to me:
0.5-1 star = Less entertaining than going to a 4-hour lecture on staplers.
1.5-2 stars = Very fleeting moments of entertainment, but mostly sub-par.
2.5-3 stars = Neither overly good or bad. Painfully average
3.5-4 stars = Worth watching, but has minor areas to improve.
4.5 stars = Exemplary, but just missing that one thing that pushes it into the realms of legendary status.
5 stars = A masterpiece.
