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.

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

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.

Hello!

About the buddy group for Kuuchuu Buranko, so you thought you could start after Friday? Should we start right on Saturday, then? I have an insanely busy week in school right now, so it'd be only appropriate to watch some mindfuuuu- to cool my brains on the weekend xD

What about the eps, how many/day? I was thinking maybe 2/day, since I doubt that next week will be any easier in school... But with that amount per day we should be done in less than a week.

And I'm writing in English because I can't think in Finnish right now, haha :D Weird...

Hey, Yeah I know what you mean about them being user based so I guess it really is subjective, I guess what my issue was, was that I dont think that Yaoi, Yuri and Shoujo should ever cross in recommendations, i.e dont recommend a yuri manga/anime on a yaoi manga/anime and vis versa, same with recommending a shoujo on either a yuri or yaoi, I just feel if someone wants a recommendation for those three things they dont really fit well together, since if someone watched Princess Princess (yaoi) and then someone recommended Strawberry Panic! (yuri) to me that doesnt really seem like a recommendation that someone that watched Princess Princess would like, I mean if a gay man was watching yaoi I think he'd be seriously turned off if someone told him he'd like Strawberry Panic! only to realize its women and vis vera right? XD but that could just be me lol

 

XD yeah I am figuring out how the list thing works XD cuz I thought it was a good way to keep some tabies on my favs ect, I know what you mean about Eureka Seven, I find that it fits well into alot of different catagories that it did well in, it would be hard for me to just stick it under one thing and leave it there XD PS I saw your one list for manga and ZOMG FREAKING <3 Liar Game, I even downloaded the Asian drama to watch to see if it did the manga justice XD and Spiral man Ilove that too XD I'm hunting down the anime to watch to see if it does the manga justice or not, so far its ok but not awesome like the manga.

hey ^__^ I have another n00b question >///< I found two or three different fourms where I could put my question and not sure witch one I should so thought I'd ask you am avoid accidently posting in the wrong thread....again XD... its about the recommendations function for both the anime and manga...I've noticed that there are ALOT of bad or maybe a better word is incorrect? recommendations for most of the Yaoi and Yuri currently avaliable on Anime-Planet, my question is, is there anyway to report or ask that some recommendations be removed due to the fact there incorrect or no? also I <3 your custom list section, and I so agree about Eureka 7 being up there for emotional impact ^__^

Ha, it seems that old habits are hard to break. As for rating anime for how much you like them: that's basically how I do as well, I have no set criteria or anything. The only thing is that they're in relation to each other and the gaps are smaller between the high ratings than the bottom ones.

 

I don't remember praising Toshokan Sensou but I really enjoyed it so it's possible that I did. And it's fun to hear that someone else likes the stuff that I and Serpico go on and on about.
