Other than anime my favourite TV shows are The Old Simpsons, Chuck, Sherlock, IT Crowd, Monk, Peep Show, Inbetweeners, Father Ted, Black Adder and Black Books, basically all British comedies.

My favourite video game series are Age of Empires, Alan Wake, Assassin's Creed, Half-Life, Mafia, Max Payne, Metal Gear, Need For Speed Portal and The Sims.

I don't have any favourite books as I read only non-fiction literature and I don't read manga.

The first anime I've watched were shitty ones like Pokemon, Shaman King and Naruto, and I wasn't interested in anime but then I've seen Soul Eater and Death note and became an anime fan in about 2009.

I think there are basically 3 kinds of anime (or movies and series in general):

1. Sad anime, which appeal to your emotions and really move you and make you feel for the characters.

2. Funny anime which either make you laugh (all stupid moe and ecchi anime which I find unfunny also belong here) or you never get bored watchig them.

3. Smart anime which make you think and contain some more depth than usual.(I consider these the most valuable)

(IMO there shouldn't be more than 2 point difference between story and overall rating, the story is always the most important thing, then characters and entertainment value. I don't care about sound and animation very much as long as it is watchable, but it can still have influence on overall score)

I like Gigguk for his style of comedy. Same with Demolition D. Demo is actually somewhat informative and enjoyable. Then there's that dude who dresses up and has the ponytail that has a ton of subscribers despite being a crap critic. And then there's that list one you mentioned that steals footage from streaming sites...the guy said he's seen thousands of anime and puts Hunter x Hunter and High School DxD and SAO on a best of all time list. 

I hate his attitude toward newer anime because it's all unfounded and the majority of old stuff is crap. Seriously, I love nineties style animation and anime and I will overrate shows that are from the nineties because they're cheesy and personally enjoyable but I say that in my reviews instead of calling anime fans of this generation a bunch of losers. Seriously, my fucking dad is ten years older than this guy and he'll sit down and watch newer anime with less complaints; and he's a total oldfag. In fact, it was once I got into anime that he finally sat down and started watching some of the good stuff from this generation. It's not that older stuff is better, I think it's mostly that the sci-fi genre has died out and been replaced with slice-of-life and ecchi and comedy, some of which I enjoy. I'm hardpressed to find a really good modern anime but I find some enjoyment out of some of them. I even kind of liked SAO II, even if it was a giant wreck. But a lot of newer shows like Tokyo Ghoul and Akame ga Kill and even Kill la Kill I found to be lacking in nearly every department. So I can understand certain complaints about the most popular anime tending to be bad, but saying newer anime in general are bad is unwarranted and just begging to be ridiculed. 

And going on 4chan and Reddit with that attitude is fucking stupid. They'll eat you alive. I tend to stay away from those sort of boards specifically because the discussions get too heated and finding a general consensus on anything is never going to happen, meaning the bulk of intelligent discussion is usually torn apart by someone who doesn't like something. Yeah, I can see Rori going on 4chan. That's hilarious. 

I want to know what he does with his life to have seen as many anime as he has at his age. Like, I'm sure he only watches a few episodes of most of the shows her reviews and says he's watched the whole thing. Either that or he's never seen the sun in his life. Like, I understand being passionate about anime because it's my hobby and what I enjoy, but his passion seems to be in telling everyone how shit they are, making fun of the culture, and being as huge a prick as possible in the interest of generating views and getting attention. 

Personally I've been working on doing my own Youtube series for reviews of anime. I don't know how to format it yet but I'm trying to get together the most informative anime review show I can that doesn't give in to the fandoms nor popular opinion. I like to think of myself as a snob but when something is entertaining, I'm sorry but even if it is universally considered garbage, you have to say it.

Welcome back! As far as good recent anime, good luck. Fate/Unlimited Blade Works was excellent to me but that's about all I can recommend from last year. 

As far as Rori I could care less. I used to talk to him back in the day but he's too strong a personality for me. I could care less how much anime you watch or how many reviews you write or how much you say you know anime, there's a thing called humility and just because you're a snob doesn't mean you need to write unwarranted rants about things you don't understand as well as complain about the people who watch certain anime. It's unprofessional and kind of rude. It's why he was banned from commenting on the site, he treats everyone with a dissenting opinion as a "pleb" and can't seem to understand that the amount of anime you've watched and reviewed does not make your taste better than anyone elses. 

Sorry, I've gotten to be more involved in anime critique and discussion and I hate people who can't accept "plebs" as they're called. Everyone has different tastes and reviews, to me, are meant to be a helpful opinion to help someone figure out if a show is right for them or not. Not vitriole about how awful the person who likes it is.

Hello!  sothis is redesigning the anime-planet site, and plans to roll out an awesome new site design in July, we believe. The blog feature is not part of the new design, and it is going away.  More information about this here:  Announcement: the blog feature is being deprecated topic link.  (Be sure to check out the new site design when it goes live!)

The blog pages are going away, and will be gone when the site redesign goes live. Your blog here will be removed from the site.

So, if want to keep the information posted in your blog, you will need to copy this information someplace else on the site. If you have any questions how or where to do this, please feel free to get back to me, and I will try to assist.
