So, I've been here for a little while but haven't felt like I had much to say about myself. I'm finally attempting to try writing reviews for mangas that lack a review, or have a review that is biased. I have a few reviews up already. If I do more, they'll likely be sporadic.

When I add Sailor Moon characters, the images are usually from here: http://soul-hunter.com/sailormoon/ It's not easy to find Sailor Moon episodes/clips legally posted online, which is where I usually use pics from. This site allows people to post pictures on their personal pages, they just want credit for the effort they took to get the pictures. The ones I use are from specific episodes/movies, and are a lot easier to get here than searching down an episode, when they usually rarely even have a decent picture of the characters within the episodes. So... hopefully that's okay to do on here.

Ahaha, you're already ahead of me about the DVDs then. I've been waiting to get all of them at once from Rightstuf's online store, since I get free shipping that way. I haven't seen any of the extras, so I'm really looking forward to those.

I remember seeing President Aria and wondering what the heck he was supposed to be. ^^; Once I got past that he was lightly amusing, which describes most of the show while I'm at it.

Akari, Alicia, Alice. Those are my favourite three, and in that order. It's easy to develop an attachment to all of them, but these are my clear favourites. As for episodes...hmm. I don't want to spoil anything, but I don't remember which ones you'd have watched already! ARIA doesn't exactly lend itself to linear narrative progression. xP

My favourites are really the ones where other people notice how amazing Akari is. Akari's speed when rowing backwards, when she's first introduced to Alice, when Alice and Aika follow her around to see how she makes friends (the puppet-show episode). I'm pretty sure you haven't gotten there, but also an episode where she works with other undine trainees (not Aika or Alice). And yes, the ending of Origination is beautiful, but I'll keep my mouth shut.

If I could drop a side note, I also really appreciate the way the opening theme songs are part of the actual episode. Gives us a slow, calm start to adjust to the mood, without any awkward transitions.

Stepping on shadows = something I totally did when I was younger. >_> ARIA's slow for a lot of people, but I find it's usually love it or hate it. That episode in Animation where the 3 Fairies sit around the fire and chat about how they met? That kind of bittersweet memory, where your dreams as you grow up distance you from childhood friends, is something completely relatable.

And I think by now I have proven that I enjoy gushing about ARIA as much as you do, so we're even. Friend-adding returned. xP

Oh man, on your first run-through? I remember mine - I ended up marathoning all three seasons over the course of a couple days. I was lucky finals for school had just ended. Akari is honestly the only character I would unashamedly call myself a fanboy for.

Speaking of owning anime, by the way, this is a sweet time for Aria fans - Rightstuf is releasing the final DVD set, Aria the Origination March 16! I'm going to order everything from Animation up to Origination once it's out. I own just about no anime, but this I can't pass up.

This is patently random, but I hereby declare you win awesome points for being a fellow ARIA fan. Aria the Natural, no less! xD

Welcome to the moderation team!

Your descriptions seem to be a pretty good starting point, but could use some (minor) work on flow. I responded to the Alice CARROLL thread in "Character Submissions" with the changes I'd have made. Given that you already have a feel for what goes into a description, if we just work on your aethetics a touch, you should be able to become description-enabled soon.

Thanks for the hard work,

ThePatches

Got it finally but am at work so i can't respond on my AP mail...

You've been added and should now see the subforum for moderation. make sure you read the threads in there closely (the 'how to add' is a little out of date but will be updated today). Points to keep in mind for sure are the 130x180 up to 130x200 requirement for images, and the stuff about titles is important. But yeah, check back in the how to add thread later today for specifics, and more guidance on how to respond to submissions ^_^
