Greetings, This is the Fullmetal Cowboy, or FullmetalCowboy24 if you prefer.

I have been reviewing anime since March of 2012 and I intend on reviewing more for many, many years to come. The first anime I ever seen was Pokemon, but my gateway to anime was Neon Genesis Evangelion. Which was one hell of a start, but for my first taste in anime. Evangelion was a series I will never forget... Enough of that. What sparked my interest in reviewing anime was because I go into detail about specific animes with my friends. After a few reviews, I grew fond of this hobby. Simple as that. My Anime reviews can be also found at MyAnimeList, Hummingbird, AniDB, and deviantART.

I also am planning on reviewing more than just anime, I am intending to make reviews of Literature, Comics, Manga, Films, Television, and Video Games. going over those mediums is still in development at this time...



UPCOMING 2015 Anime Review Layout: I will be posting reviews of New Anime once they are finished, however, they will be temporary once the American release comes (if there is one in time). I give my reviews "designated numbers" for the sake of memory. The upcoming reviews for the new anime will have the "2015 Anime" designated title and number. This may sound redundant, but the reasoning these 2015 Anime Reviews are going to be temporary is because I reside in the United States and we get the Original Japanese Audio Track and an English Dub Audio Track and I like to mention both as some other Americans like to do. That is just me, you can enjoy your anime however you like.



DUB/SUB Policy: I know tbat there do exist Spanish Dubs, German Dubs, French Dubs, and other languages. But the U.S. usually carries two languages in American releases of Anime. Japanese and English. That is my policy, if you want to comment dubs other than English, I am not stopping you at all on that.



Licensed Anime Policy: I also do tend to review Anime that have been licensed. The American Distribution of Anime has been quicker than ever before thanks to streaming sites such as CrunchyRoll, Hulu, etc... Before the 2015 Anime Review update, I usually only reviewed anime that have been released and contains a Dub (if there is one). I still hold up to this with my permanent reviews.  I did make a few exceptions and I suspect I will have to make some more exceptions along the way.



My Individuality as an Anime Reviewer: This is the one thing I am going to make crystal clear. My reviews are not meant to be taken as absolute fact. At the same time, I am being honest as much as possible whether you like it or not. I also take criticism fairly well, and I do like to hear other people's point of view if there is a differing opinion on something. This also applies to the Ratings/Scores that I give to the number of anime that I have reviewed and future reviews. I am not an amateur in this sort of thing since I have been an anime fan for over 10 years. I also am not an Elitist even though there are some Elitist tendencies on my reviews which I will state right now that whatever I say in my reviews is based on my own opinion and my own thoughts. I like to retain my individuality and I want to keep it that way



My stance towards other reviewers: Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, whether we like it or not. It may sound basic, but I do not go to someone's profile and talk s**t to him/her because of a review or favorite anime. You can call it "My self-code" if you want but I do not discriminate because of someone's opinion on something. The same applies to that person's ethnicity, gender, beliefs, and disability.



~ ***Anime Ratings*** ~


10 - If I score something a "10", it is not implied to be perfect and even though I would label Animes with a 10 to be a Masterpiece. The term "Masterpiece" does not have to be under the "10" rating. How I see the 10 rating is when something clicked in all areas even with a few minor hiccups. I rarely give out the "10" rating and its only reserved for the anime I feel deserved it.


The 9 Range - This is reserved for Animes that Did extremely well but do have a minor flaw. But Animes with such a rating have stood out for me and they are animes I find excellent

The 8 Range - This is reserved for Animes that have its flaws but still are very good.

The 7 Range - This is reserved for Animes that are still good but have some problems.

The 6 Range - This is reserved for Animes that are decent but not entirely recommended.

The 5 Range - This is reserved for Animes that are pretty average and animes under this scoring range are ones I would find difficult to re-watch.

The 4 Range - This is reserved for Animes that are not really good and chances are, I really did not like them. Some guilty pleasures do land here.

The 3 Range - this is reserved for Anime that are weak and often not worth the recommendation.

The 2 Range - This is reserved for Anime that I find really bad. Any anime that lands here really failed. But are not even that close to being viewed as an abomination

The 1 Range - I don't have an anime in this label yet, but if one does, I would see it as awful that it is "so bad it's not good"

The 0 Range - I don't have any anime in this category yet, but if one does. any anime under this category are what I would view some of the worst

0 Rating? If any anime I review ever gets one, I would regard it as a "Master Piece of s**t"



What do I like in an anime?: Anything that has good storytelling, and great characters. If it is heavy with style, it depends.


What do I not like in an Anime: Any distracting fanservice, or anything that is out of focus.



That was all I had to say for my Bio, thank you for your time. Have a great day...

Hey! Sorry about the late reply. I've tried reading the Game of Throne books (A Song of Ice and Fire) but I stopped awhile ago, maybe I'll try them again. I've heard of the Wheel of Time books, that seems like a lot of time commitment.

Sorry about the basketball games. For Valentine's Day all I did was go to a party my college's anime club threw and it was great, mostly because we sang karaoke and played Cards Against Humanity. Since then I've just been busy with school. My spring break is next week though so I'm excited about that.

Happy belated birthday! I've never seen the Lord of the Rings movies or the Hobbit ones, but my sister went to go see the Desolation of Smaug and she really enjoyed it, so much that she began reading the books. I've heard good things about how Peter Jackson adapted the books - I mean, they're massive, so people of course get angry about how much is left out (or in the case of the Hobbit movies I guess, stretched out), but he's bringing them to a wider audience in a way that has for the most part been pretty acclaimed. Wish I could say the same for the Harry Potter movies...

Ah, a Seahawks fan. So you enjoyed the Super Bowl. I'm a Niners fan so I was unhappy, but man was that a blow-out. I mean, I kind of expected Seattle to win (though I kind of hoped they wouldn't - since we're rivals and all), but I did not expect them to so thoroughly destroy Denver. I remember the last Super Bowl they played in vaguely, I remember wanting them to win that (I wasn't a Niners fan or really a football fan at all at the time, so I just went with who my family was rooting for.) I'm glad your year has been good! Have you started any anime (or books or tv shows) interesting lately?

Oh I see, I hate getting home improvements. I remember when my family put in wood floors all throughout the upstairs, it was a nightmare.

I haven't seen Space Dandy either and from the comments I've seen on it, I don't know how it would measure up to Watanabe's other works. Some people said they loved it because of the throwback style, others thought it was stupid and silly. I'll still give it a shot, though. I did like however that they aired it here at the same time as in Japan, if this works well enough I think it would be good to continue it. They need more anime like this on Toonami, too - I mean, it's supposed to be an introduction of sorts for new anime viewers, and I really don't think fanservice-heavy or more 'otaku' oriented stuff like Tenchi Muyo or Sword Art Online is doing that. There's a reason they used to air stuff like Bebop, Outlaw Star, FMA, Ghost in the Shell, and Trigun.

Thanks, my new year was great, though I just started classes again. How about you?

It's great to hear from you and it sounds like you had a great Christmas! I mostly just got comics and a few nonfiction books I wanted to read, plus a few gift cards. It was a good holiday. For gift-giving I bought my sister a shirt she had wanted but I buy her so much throughout the year (and she owed me money anyways) so it was something small this year. In anime club at my college we had a gift-giving party and I bought the 3-in-1 volume of Fullmetal Alchemist and got the first volume of the Madoka manga (but I almost got a Homura plushie, very sad when I didn't.)

I hear you, sometimes it gets to be a lot to squeeze in anime watching, I was like that when I was worrying over starting college. Since it's break though I've been watching more, I've really wanted to get into some older series. Are you by any chance going to watch Space Dandy, the new anime by Shinichiro Watanabe? It's airing on Toonami before it gets to Japan (probably because his style is more popular among American fans) and it sounds interesting.
