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.

15k worth for a pc? not sure if he's got gold plated casing or whatever...but I can't see any pc being worth that much...he's prolly starving for days to build something like that...I can think of a million better ways to use 15k - and I've got a pretty high-end lappie here myself!

Never heard of OQO before but now I looked at it...doesn't seem all that great based on its specs while the prices leave a lot to be desired too...not to mention its basically copying a lot of functions off other brands which isn't too cool...that said, I haven't done much research into the UMPC market of late as I'm very very happy with my S9...so I'm sure a lot has changed in the industry in the mean time...Cowon def. has the best equalizer settings and the best sound quality as well...their interfaces are very weak though (I've customized my S9 as well)...Kindle's def. the best reader but only because the tablets haven't taken off yet...once they do, Kindle will be in deep deep trouble...as for PSP, its best in terms of specs...in terms of the gaming library, NDS wins hands down

PSP is a good replacement if you don't have an exclusive video player (S9 does that for me)...but its not an ideal video player by any means...that said, if you've got a big enough SD card then why not I suppose....I doubt playing games will be as easy as d/l'ing them unless you connect to PSN...and besides they are introducing a new format so I'm sure they'll market that loads too...Xperia Play unlike what many think (if I'm right) is NOT a PSP Phone...its just an android phone which can play some exclusive Sony titles...I doubt it'll be competing against the 3DS...rather its meant to be an extension of the Sony product line...just like iPhone and iPod Touch...not the same market despite doing mostly the same things

If I'm gonna be burning 300 bucks on a handheld then yes I'd rather get a jailbroken PS3 instead...now if the PSP 2 got modded then I'd have to rethink that thought

I just got a new laptop a few months ago and thing's an absolute beast so couldn't be happier there...my S9 works like a charm too (touch wood) so that's sorted...just leaves me with buying a new phone so that's my key investment for the near future...perhaps a tablet too...will wait for Motorola Xoom first though definitely

Crytek's giving up? I thought Crysis 2 was still unplayable at the max settings on the best of PC's...that said, its normal for technology to keep growing...it'll take time for the developers to catch up but don't think this race is gonna end anytime soon

Yes Sharp's retina isn't as good...or rather the retina is more or less the same but internally its not quite the same...S9 has a Corning Glass (i.e. it cannot be scratched or broken EVER...you can see youtube videos where they even use like drilling machines on the S9's screen but it can't even cause a dent) AMOLED screen...Apple's retina display is nowhere near that...so far there isn't a single PMP in the market with a better screen than a S9...its just not worth it given the costs (there were initial rumours that Cowon might be losing money on S9's given the cost of the screen)

4k res? I think you are looking too far ahead...until the day the costs of say a 50" screen fall to consumer levels (and there's a long way to go for that)...companies won't even bother extending res any further...its only gonna lead to more consumer complaints otherwise

I've never been a platformer guy...some of them are very decent like the Sly series on PS2 but I'e never been a big fan...people still love them though so they keep churning them all the time

Trust me, if we are talking about PS2 games, I can probably list like atleast 100 you haven't played...I have over 1000 PS2 games (and that's not even a close estimate...my exact count is probably nearing 2000)...and that includes practically all genres possible...so if you are looking for any genre in particular, I can easily list out the top names for the console...although my collection's in Thailand and not here (but I still remember most of them...that's how much I've played them)

Well I'm not sure what genre - or rather specific games - your interests lie in so its kinda futile for me to give any suggestions...that said, there's not a genre out there which isn't booming today so regardless of what kind of games you like, rest assured there's atleast one epic game (and most have been released quite recently) in that genre that you haven't played for sure...I can assure you this by the fact that I've grabbed over 1TB of PC games in like the last single month...and that's despite having like 3TB of PC games back home...the PC market is def soaring of late...and some of the games are absolutely fabulous!

Giants is ok but not my type lol...its nothing like SoTC though...it has more in common with GodZilla than the former...its a typical action game...SoTC on the other hand isn't just about the action...infact it hardly has any action...its all about the environment, the story and the puzzles (yes I said puzzles!)...its not a platformer, its not a rpg and its not an action game...yet its all of them and more...if you haven't played it before then you have no idea what you are missing...and if you have indeed played it but you don't like it...well then all I can say is tough luck for you!

If you think modern games are trie and insipid then obviously you haven't been looking at the right games...like I said, its all about finding the hidden gems...I can't suggest you anything as I'm not sure of your tastes...but I'm telling you again, there's way too many classics that you are missing out on nowadays

I'm not a reader so mentioning books and novels won't lead to much discussion with me lol...that said, virtual reality (otherwise called augmented reality) is booming BIG time...and its only a matter of time where you'll see yourself quite literally within the games...oh and I don't mean the likes of Kinect or Second Life...those will be obsolete before you know it...its just a matter of time ^^

That def sounds like me...also more often than not, the def. of "best" varies...in this case, I can def. tell you, Apple is NOT the best...not even close to it

Also you are highly mistaken about Archos...Archos isn't so much about the software as it is about hardware (including but not limited to the screen)...and in that criteria, the company still remains unbeatable...A Q5 is not a replacement for a PSP (and vice versa)...if you are using both to serve the same purpose then you naturally don't realize what the products are/were made for...that said, Cowon's a good company...I only wish they experimented more with their hardware (their software - not their API/GUI - is top notch)

The new PSP already supports previous PSP games...only thing it will not support would be the UMD games...which would hurt a lot of PSP faithful no doubt...Also none of the handhelds have ever been cross-platformed...A DS isn't meant to play emulators (let alone other consoles) and the same goes for PSP...the reason it can is all due to homebrew

iPad would be a good competitor to Kindle for an e-reader...that said I would wait a while longer...next gen updates are coming for all of these models (and more)

When a 5" screen supports full-HD, it means the device must be outrageously powerful...its not a LED tv but its just as bloody powerful...also the PSP2 was expected to be loaded...but yeah, its well past anyone's imaginations...also you are mistake if you think any of these portable gadgets are more powerful than a typical PC nowadays...sure the tech is upgrading all the time...but these techs are still coming via PC's i.e. PCs remain unbeatable

Sharp's retina display isn't the same as Apple's...Apple has a patent on it which gets infringed upon all the time (and hence, free money for Apple via suing)

I think you are quite mistaken when you compare resolution against the panel...nowadays most things are full-HD and even that by itself is too much for a 5" screen (things would be hardly readable with such a high resolution on such a small screen)...on the other hand, the panel itself will define how good the quality of the screen is...the best we have so far in the model would be AMOLED which is still extremely rare (the Cowon S9 has it - the screen is amazing to say the least)...the next best would indeed be OLED and its certainly taking over the market rapidly...LED's and LCD's are fast becoming obsolete (esp. the former) and aren't really looked forward to in top-end products very much including the new PSP...we recently met up with some OLED manufacturers as part of the course so I know quite a bit about the technology but let's leave that for another day

The price will def. be the killer...I suspect 50 bucks higher than a 3DS which means the numbers might 300 bucks...for me that's way too expensive when I could just as well get a PS3 for that price

Mario and open world? No chance...you'll never see Nintendo experiment with their mascot and flagship products...too much risk of alienating fans...the best you'll get (and you've already got) is Mario Galaxy...again not open world but def. incredible

Castlevania's awesome...the new one for PS3 (forgot the name) is quite a change in the series (for the good) and ofcourse if you like this series, you may wanna try Devil May Cry or Onimusha as well...good stuff

Pyschonauts is great but I'm not too big a fan of platformers as they make me dizzy...that said, there's tons of platformers/adventure games you can sink your teeth into - such as Dreamfall, Beyond Good & Evil and so on and so forth...there's no limit to good games out there trust me

I'll look for a list of Russian developers for your comfort...just don't have the time or patience right now lol...but yes, I love my rpg's and I can safely say, I know quite a lot about them too ^^
