Was hooked up in 04. Although, I did inadvertently watch a little on tv at the kindergarten age during early 90s. Practically abandoned anime in april 08, stopped keeping a close watch during 12, but managed to get acquainted with oodles of titles anyway. Last time I counted, which was in 06, got 700-1000, and that's at least fair among my circles of acquaintance any day. I founded a club(several dozens of members, who gathered few times a week) back in my fan-days, in mid 05. Futhermore, I had continually supplied my own local server, packed with almost 3ters (riffled through all of em too).That was years before HD era came to modernize anime-world.

I am a big sports anime aficionado. Viewed all subbed and even some unsubbed sports shows :).I enjoy WMT, Ga-nime, Japan in the last war-series and almost any realistic and ripe titles as well. Gladly watch arthouse and avant-garde stuff too. I've never seriously learnt japanese; so don't really have much worth watching nowadays. Besides amv of course. That's why I mostly returned to cinema. Nevertheless, I still do prefer qualitative animation regardless of the country origin :).

Oh, I've been using AP since the middle of the 07 spring and it helped a lot back then ;). Shocked me, when I found out, that it's even older, than anidb :D. Founded around the middle of 01.

All my TOP5 intricate overviews are long time gone due to some site restoration. And I don't plan on reviving 'em.

Anime stats: Watched are watched. Finished, completely digested, stared at through and through, however you like to put it. I may rarely rewatch or rewind some, but that's just it.

Watching are some ongoing translations. Quite seldomly a title or so, of those, that I don't feel like finishing in one sitting. The important part here is, these ones are still alive!

Want to watch are mostly upcoming shows, but there may pass by some occasional subbed entries as well.

Stalled represent a speck of the bulk of my wishlist anime. I cannot finish any of these. All of 'em are far from ever getting near completion. Some are supposedly lost. Others can actually be found in raws, which I'm not exactly keen on. There is one more titbit at anidb, but I don't really store my full list anywhere anymore. That's too depressing, and can be easily guessed out without.

Dropped surprise me by the extremely low count, as I'm not that good at careful selection tbn, and usually try all kinds of shows. Even hentai and mecha (check out my genres) can make their appearance on my list. Yep, I won't ever plan on continuing these failings, or actually there can be exceptions even here.

Won't watch - the product of a long time gone random not marked anime titles button. This isn't the full list of anime, I wouldn't like to watch, but may be called the quick draft, I reckon. Most of the contents are ecchi, oldschool mecha or some shallow mainstream.

Everybody appears frantic about clarifying their TOP-denominations. So here goes:

5 (10)(95-99%) - in no way is this necessary some kind of ultimate masterpiece or any icon of perfection. Merely excellent.

4.5 (9) - jolly good.

4 (8) - good. Denotes the pantheon's end.

3.5 (7) - fine. Quite high still.

3 (6) - satisfactory. As the lowest positive mark, it often takes the lead, but due to the eventual sensation of satiation and the theory of the low quality production of the majority it's the next marks which have their way in the end.

2.5 (5) - quasi satisfactory. Appears below average, but got some strong points nonetheless.

2 (4) - bad. Some more or less decent or even arbitrarily quality stuff may still linger around.

1.5 (3) - sucks big time. Almost unwatchable.

1 (2) - el terrible. The pristine trash level.

0.5 (1)(15-01%) - the only ultimate mark imho. Worse than terrible; pure horror, in other words a totally stillborn product. The grandest achievement.

No matter how complex the process of rating may appear, in a nutshell, it's the synthesis between subjective and objective factors, with the balanced mark as the outcome. The idea and it's realization. The first and foremost condition here is the amount of totally watched, versus the real-life experience; simile at the core. To correlate I usually come from the 100point system. I almost never rate something I had watched a long time ago. I may also very rarely put up a grade by 0.5, while revising the list, and realizing, that there is a title, which managed to get so deep of an impression on me, that it won't fade away even after some years passing by. The Most of my current ratings 're outdated and half a star higher than they should be :D.

And this is my trifling supplementary profile: http://myanimelist.net/profile/Jet7 . I'm also jet7 at anidb, where I try to store untranslated stuff only.

You have a great list of anime.  I was curious why you dropped Major Season 4 and onward.

I watched a whole bunch of classics too of course. Not everything because I give new stuff priority but I'm always looking for old gems aswell. Any recomendations of the 80s?

I'm also watching Kingdom though I'm not sure why? The animation improved lately I guess, in the first episodes there was some gruesome CGI stuff going on. Those seldom moments keep it going, for some reason I never even considered droping it. 

Np telling me you didn't enjoyed Chihayafuru as much as I did. I'm not the type defending my favourite shows against all criticism or taking it personally. Taste is individual ^^ I said I'm rewatching atm so some aspects of the show don't make that deep an impact this time. Karuta seems slightly lame of a game this time around. I'm still very attached emotionally to the characters though, and the games are exciting. When Chihaya is angry I'm geting angry too, when she's crying my eyes get wet aswell. Lol - no idea why this show is draging me along like that, but that's really the reason it's one of my favourite shows :-D

I think I took sniveling Chihaya because I consider her a very strong character, but I think she's even beautiful in her weak moments :-P

Maybe you would like Kaiji which isn't sport per se but about gambling, which is very close to sports imo. Interesting high stake games, very thrillijng stuff. I wouldn't recommend the 2nd season but the first one is great stuff.

I think every season has it's good shows. I often can enjoy new animation more than old animation, so there was a lot for me to enjoy. I agree though that taste is an important trait and a good amount of crap shows were watched in the process of my approach. I wouldn't recommend anyone else to get into anime like this :/ It's tiresome but I ran out of good recommendations at one point and felt that I missed out on years of high quality seasons... XD

I never got into many games but really concentrated on a hand full of old classic titles like Baldur's Gate and Diablo 1. Played those until I literally knew the code by heart :P I can't get into new games that easily, Diablo 3 being the exception at the moment.

Because you like sports anime I would absolutely recommend Chihayafuru. It's not about romance at all, only friendship and although it's shojo the focus is very much on the sports aspect after the initial episodes. I'm re watching it at the moment and this show is really my favorite of all the shows I watched :P I'm so glad there will be a 2nd season :-) Let me know if you liked it, when you watch. I'm a bit biased sorry :P

You are right, I am in the process of filing. I did just join A-P after all XD Thanks for pointing out the errors in my profile; I put the two that weren't in stats, into stats now. I don't see where you're getting that I'm in the process of watching my top 1; Steins;Gate is at the top of my only custom list and it does say that I've watched the whole thing. (Though I'd happily watch it again ^_^)

To answer your question about my school, I am in a counselor education programme at university What about you? :).

Hey, thx for writing

Yeah last year was crazy. I started somewhere around 2 months. Summer 2011 was the first anime season I watched, from there going backwards watching pretty much everything till 2008. There wasn't much time for anything beside work, sleep and watching anime, often 35+ episodes a day XD

Unfortunately I'm never that ambitous with school or work,... before I was a lot into games which allways was a bit hard to arange with school :/

I'm not exactly runing out of titles though, there's still some shows I want to watch. I learned to anticipate where shows are going though and it's a lot easier to drop shows for me today. At the moment I have to concentrate on ongoign because of university. I also don't have the ambition to watch everything (anymore). I learned it the hard way, that you have to stick to the good shows if you want to enjoy anime XD

I do read scans from time to time, depending on if the manga is outstanding or I can't wait for a german physical release. I really prefer manga books though. My manga list is terribly out of date, but I pretty much own everythingh on it. Might update it sometime in the future because I bought lots of used (and new) manga lately, getting the collection close to 1k books :)

Take care
