On a personal level I'm rather uninteresting. I'm extremly lazy and unmotivated and am quietly proud of that fact resulting in a severe obsession with procrastination. I accept change and pressure with a shrug; everything tends to work out eventually, hence why procrastination works so well. I play video games, play soccer, sea kayak, scuba dive, volunteer, and watch anime. Spiders freak me out. I've never been to an anime convention but then I haven't really paid attention to whether or not any actually happen here. I've run out of random things to say about myself.

I generally prefer shounen, comedies, and action/adventures and can do without harems, yaoi, most mecha, and any anime with animal protagonists. I cut my anime teeth on Naruto, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh so forgive me if I don't dismiss popular animes as necessarily garbage like some anime snobs do. I have something of an affliction in that I find myself almost incapable of dropping an anime regardless of how much I dislike it so, if nothing else, I tend to end up with a full picture of the anime that I watch. In fact the only animes that I've "dropped" were ones where I happened to catch a few episodes on television and didn't bother following up. Knowing that I have trouble abandoning poor animes and moving on, I realize that I'll likely never finish my constantly growing list of "Want to Watch" anime, which, in part, makes me happy. I'm thoroughly enjoying anime at the moment and am thrilled to see the truly staggering library that is out there waiting for me.

At this phase in my anime experience my favorite anime has got to be Toradora!. I normally don't like romances (anime or otherwise) as they typically remind me of my own follies and drag up old, unwanted memories, but Toradora! is the first, and to date only, romance that has finished with me feeling better than when it started. No matter how jaded you have become Toradora! will have you believing that true love exists once more, as corny as that may sound. Simply put, watching Toradora! is one of those rare experiences that give you a new perspective and legitimately affects you in a deep and meaningful way.

As for my least favorite anime ever, that honor belongs to Hamtaro. I don't think a reason is really needed there. My least favorite anime that I haven't dropped? 07-Ghost. A decent first episode followed by 20 episodes of some yaoi emo walking around in a church capped off by 4 episodes of hectic nonsensical chaos and a finale that served more as a TV ad for the next season than as any sort of plot builder does not a good anime make. You'd think that'd be obvious, eh?

And in case I get some strange looks for my 5 star and 4.5 star scores for Nartuo / Shippuden and Bleach respectively, I must make it perfectly clear that those ratings exclude the huge amount of useless filler in both series. My justification for this is two-fold. First, in a completely self-serving manner, I did not want to give bad scores to either show as I am a huge fan of both. Second, there is no reason why anyone should be watching the filler anyways. I did because of my inexplicable need to finish everything I start that I mentioned before, but others should be able to just skip it. It adds nothing to the plot and exhibits some terrible scriptwriting and storytelling (except for maybe the Bount arc in Bleach which was passable). So if the filler exists outside the plot of a series, it hardly seems fair to include it in a rating of that series.

With respect to my reviews, I suppose I should I should add a caveat here. Sorry my reviews are bereft of humor, but I'm woefully unimaginative.

Honestly, I'm not bothered if you like it or not. Something always has someone that doesn't like it. But your review does seem to have a lack of valid reasons. I have watched anime I have not liked before, but I never considered them good or bad if I don't like the genre, unless the quality of it actually is bad(bad animation, story holes, lack of story, ect.)

hey there, having just looked at your preferences and your bio, I have to say go and watch Monster! it's the best thing you can do at this time. also don't knock mecha til you've tried it! I've always disliked mecha but then I tried Eureka 7, and got more adventurous and moved onto gundam. Really they're actually quite good generally (except for SEED DESTINY ugh...) but Eureka 7 is a good introductory show as it is fundamentally a romance and the mecha takes an important but secondary role. so yeah 2 shows you should move up your list :3 whether you choose to listen to a complete stranger or not :D
