Some of you might wonder if the huge wall text has suddenly disappeared. Fear not, I was getting kind sick and tired of it so I want to make an even bigger one!

My status and social life changed drastically since I've joined this site. Currently I am a student at International Relations and European Studies. I love world history, foreign languages, geography, literature, philosophy, economics, politics, diplomacy and security studies. No, I don't love maths, I am still a sane person after all. Well my hobbies: watching anime, reading manga (ofc), rock and metal music (can't live without it), football, basketball, ranting, etc.

Your biggest metalhead is here with new tastes, new fucking great metal bands to share with you mates (or at least with whoever is interested), here are some of the bands I am currently listening (if the list is too long, don't blame me, blame the bands for being too good to attract my ears, you have been warned):

Imi placea mult mai mult vechea introducere... o sa imi lipseasca mai ales partea de recomandari... si cred ca nu doar mie...

"Everybody that has a level of experience in anime can easily comprehend that most A-P reviews are shit."

I'm now less interested in helping you

What browser/OS, and what steps are you doing to link? (typing text, then clicking a button? just clicking the button? etc)

One point makes a whole load of difference. 6.5 is the upper end of average, while 7.5 is verging on being great. A 10 point scale is pretty compact so there has to be some variation between the marks. Nana (the anime series) is not a masterpiece at all - for a start, the first five episodes basically repeat the same action ad nauseum and I'm saying this as someone who adores the manga. No doubt it got better after I dropped it but the director made some pretty odd choices.

As a matter of fact, I commented on the Full Moon review because I thought it was a little OTT too, but then, that's a reviewing style. Reviewers are all different in the way they review and AirCommodore decided to take no prisoners on that one. He is, however, a fan of shoujo, if you read his profile. Besides, I think it's a little much to deride the whole site and the team of A-P reviewers because you don't agree with the way a couple of shows are reviewed. You're quite welcome to your opinion, of course - I just find it a bit staggering that you would call us all "incompetent" purely (as it's becoming apparent) because we see things differently to you.
