about me

In business since 2001, been watching periodically since then. Or reading. Especially longer titles. Will try out pretty much anything save for series revolving around same-sex relationships, either of them.

Favorite themes: redemption, atonement, mental problems not played for comedy, romances that have flaws and faults (most preferably for both parties) but work through it anyway, people doing the right thing even when the world is not idealistic, happy endings.

Least favorite themes: tsunderes, inflexible, one-dimensional reactions, an unmovable status quo, otherwise sensible characters turning dumber than bricks when love is concerned, characters whose personality you can guess just by looking at them and actually be correct, schadenfreude comedy when inflicted on undeserving targets.

An odd obsession with: Rei Ayanami, Lily Shiraishi, Lotte the Witch.

Ratings based on absolutely nothing aside from personal opinion, mostly from their plot and characters since I'm rather bad at spotting differences in animation or sound quality.

Disliked:

0.5 - Hated it enough to wonder why it even exists.

1.0 - Everything about it was loathsome. Agony to watch.

1.5 - Still firmly hated, but I can go through an episode without repeated checking of the time in hopes it'll be over soon.

2.0 - It had good ideas, but someone screwed up in the production big time and the result is a major disappointment.

Eh: 

2.5 - Unremarkable. Could watch without problems, but won't probably remember anything afterwards. Or, in one exception, absolutely loved one half of the series and hated the other half just as much.

3.0 - Alright. Not anything to write home about, but I don't regret watching it, either. Has at least some likable qualities. Could recommend them to people who just want something to watch.

Liked:

3.5 - Basically, a good series, but it also had some annoying quality I just couldn't ignore which took away from the enjoyment. Or it just wasn't good enough. Still, could recommend these to people who like similar works.

4.0 - Solid. A good series through and through, could recommend them to most people. Also, since I vastly prefer happy endings, most depressing series don't rank higher than this.

4.5 - Enjoyed just about every minute. In addition to having its plot and characters together, the series also had something that appealed to me personally. 

5.0 - Mostly the same as 4.5 but also had some kind of peak moment that stuck to my memory. These are the ones I still remember years later.

Ah cool, so you're a cosplayer too? I'm a bit of a rookie myself, only did those two costumes so far but you gotta start somewhere I guess ^^ Do you have any pics of your cosplay?

Yep I know a couple from the forums, at least those who have their location visible... And I don't know about anime-planet members, but at least some people from other countries will probably visit Animecon, after all it is one of the largest cons in Scandinavia, I think.

I'm getting pretty excited myself, and stressed too since I'm one of those "plan, plan, plan" people :P Can't help it really, I'll have plenty of time to relax after the con, haha :D

Hellou! You've seen me in a con? Really? That's cool, yeah I did Rena last year in 3 different cons I think. This year I was Sa-chan from Gintama in Bakacon. Are you coming to Animecon in couple of weeks? I'll be there as well, as Sa-chan. I think it could be nice to have some sort of an Anime-Planet meeting in Animecon, though I don't know how many people would come...
