In business since 2001, been watching periodically since then. Or reading. Especially longer titles. Will try out pretty much anything, although I don't really seek out series revolving around same-sex relationships.

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.

Ratings based on absolutely nothing aside from personal opinion but are mostly about writing and characters since I'm not very good at spotting differences in animation or sound quality.


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 or at least some kind of potential, but screwed up with something else badly enough to result in a disappointment in the end.


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.


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.

Mahoraba was the first manga that really made me appreciate everything that wasn't top shonen manga. It opened up so many doors to manga like Midori Days and Host Club. I've read other works from Kojima, just wish he could finish them but I know he has had things happen in his personal life that has inhibited his work.

:O I love Aria to death; most peaceful anime/manga in existence.

Hola citizen of Finland! Strangly enough I descovered your profile because you loved Akira KOJIMA. Pretty awesome profile you got going here; stop by mine if you want to chat it up sometime.

Would it be alright if we postpone the Funny Pets Fun Time for Christmas, or right at the beginning of the holidays? It'll be a Christmas gift of sorts.

Did you ever finish Kuuchuu Buranko? Just wondering what I should do with it, I got stuck at ep 6 or something because I underestimated the power of school :/

If you've already watched it, that's cool, I'll call the group closed and watch it sometime later myself. Or we can pick up where we left off with it ^_^

I saw Chaos;Head a long time ago so I couldn’t remember where it was from.
