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...

It's mostly professional reviewers that I have that reaction to. I enjoy reading your reviews, and I've found other reviews here or on MAL that I liked too.

For graduation presents I got gifts of money from a lot of my family members and I'm planning on spending it (not all of it though) next time I go to Little Tokyo, which is this little Japanese neighborhood in Los Angeles. It has great stores, and this really huge anime store that I love. I plan on buying Princess Mononoke and maybe Gurren Lagann, and more FMA plush characters (I own this random Ed one I bought last time, but he looks lonely lol.)

Is your MAL username the same as the one on here?

Nothing wrong with liking MLP, I'm not a huge fan of it but it's a fun series to watch (and I love Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie!) I'm watching Batman the Animated Series right now...I've always wanted to get into comics but it's so hard to find places to start and I heard a good place to pick up with Batman is the animated series (or the Christopher Nolan movies.) I love Doctor Who, I watch it all the time with my sister (she's the true Whovian.)

I really, really want to watch the LOTR movies. I tried picking up Fellowship of the Ring (book) but I lost motivation. I think if I saw the movies first and enjoyed them I would read the series. I just watched Pulp Fiction the other day and I loved it. It's probably one of my new favorite movies. I don't normally go on many movie sites though, and I'm not a big fan of movie critics (I only ever read Roger Ebert, actually.) I feel like many reviewers (of movies, anime, book, whatever) write their reviews in such a clinical, detached fashion; they mechanically throw out phrases about how great or bad whatever they're reviewing was, but you never get the sense from them that they actually enjoy the medium they're talking about. Also, they nitpick just for the sake of finding fault because of course quality can't be perfect and god forbid they rate their actual enjoyment level. I think that's why I read Ebert though, he always seemed like he was just there for a good movie and if he enjoyed it, he said exactly why, or vice versa.

Anyways, I'm almost out of school (graduation in a week) so I'm going to have plenty of time now to catch up with all these anime series I want to watch or have stalled.

I hope that Mike and Bryan (the creators) continue to make other series; Avatar is one of my favorite shows, ever. I thought that the art was one area were the Legend of Korra improved on the older series; the art was a lot better in quality (even thought Avatar was well-animated) and the character anatomy was more realistic and better I thought. My problems with Korra (series not character) was the love triangle subplot and the ending, I wish they had managed to keep Amon as a villain because his storyline was interesting.

I haven't been watching as much anime lately...I'm waiting until my summer break begins to finish all the shows I've been watching/wanting to watch. Lately I've been watching Arrested Development which is a great show, have you ever seen it? Have you seen any great shows or movies lately?

I just used paint :3 Nothing fancy.  All you have to do is copy a picture, crop if needed and then add your text to the blank space.

Wind Waker is fun at parts, but there's a lot of sailing and it was a kind of confusing (I've only played it with my friends, I don't actually own it.) The sailing is boring though. I'm not a huge video game person, though; besides Zelda the only games I like are the Sims and the Civilization games though that's probably because I enjoy creating virtual worlds.

As for my favorite voice actors, for seiyuus I like Mamoru Miyano, Norio Wakamoto, Romi Park, Aya Hirano, and Rie Kugimiya. I've also liked Jun Fukuyuma in the roles I've seen him in, but I haven't watched as many shows in Japanese. In English I like a lot of the same ones you named but I would have to say my favorite voice actors are Steve Blum, Vic Mignogna, and Laura Bailey.

Random question, have you ever seen Avatar the Last Airbender or the Legend of Korra (the sequel series)? If you haven't you should try them out, they're very anime-inspired and they're great, though Avatar is better. Anyways the creators are huge anime fans (especially of Cowboy Bebop, they always drop nods to the series and others in the show) and they got Steve Blum to voice the villain of the Legend of Korra and he did a great job.
