^ Made by me. =D

[[God, I seriously need to renew this profile description]]

 

I don't really have much to say about myself.

I'm a nineteen-year-old Spanish student who really likes anime and manga, but especially anime. I began, as the vast majority, watching series such as Dragon Ball or Slayers.

One Piece is the anime that actually introduced me in the depths of this ''universe''. I love everything about it, but it's not just nostalgia, it keeps getting better and better as more chapters are released, and everyone realizes that, both old and new fans! All of you, folks, read One Piece. Now.

My favorite genres are Action, Comedy and Horror, both Shonen and Seinen. But I'll watch pretty much anything as long as it looks interesting. I even watch some ecchi and the like every so often when I want something brainless to relax and let my senses go numb, even though I usually get the opposite effect since 98% of ecchi anime gets SO on my nerves. Oh, and I do HATE Yaoi and similar stuff, so anything but that, please.

My favorite videogame is Tales of Symphonia and I like music groups such as Rise Against or Sonata Arctica (some Japanese ones, too).

Several things I like in my anime:

-Huge, expansive worlds you can lose yourself in, lots of memorable locations and characters.

-A dark atmosphere, deathly serious mood, hostile places, corrupt people.

-Violence and gore of all sorts (justified and appropiate, not just 'because').

-A romance that's sweet without being fluffy.

-Randomness in comedies, lots of it.

-Thrills and shocking moments.

-Good characterisation.

My rating criteria:

0,5:

I totally hated the anime, there was absolutely nothing remarkable (in a positive sort of way) or that could have at least stopped my yawns. Rare disasters such as Itsudatte my Santa or Sleeping with Hinako lurk on this side of my anime list.

1,0:

This was shit with some things that were not SO extremely bad, but yet shitty things no matter how I see it. Ippatsu! Juuden-chan might be an example of this level of awfulness.

1,5:

Still sucking a lot, but at least I did not want the producers to die horribly... Not much.

2,0:

A pretty bad anime that could have been passable or decent if a bunch of things were different. For instance, Asura Cryin' or Tales of Eternia.

2,5:

I barely enjoyed the series and I would not recommend it to anyone whom I had a minimal steem, but oh well... An approved is still an approved. It was not terrible or unbearable, just awfully average and unsubstantial.

3,0:

^How I feel whenever I finish one of these...

There were several things I liked about it, but the whole thing didn't manage to leave a deep impression. However, a 3 is something fairly recommendable if the genre of the anime is compatible with the person.

3,5: It's a good series, nothing more and nothing less. I liked it and there weren't many things to dislike about the story, the characters or the production itself. See it if you think it matches your tastes. I have to say, I give lots of 3.5's as of late, but their value is pretty different depending on the series. Irohanihoheto has a really low one, while Bamboo Blade's is a lot higher and it saddens me not to be able to score it better... The four stars barrier is just too hard.

4,0:

From this point onward there are the series I really liked. A 4/5 is for me an anime everyone should give a shot to - they might like it a lot or dislike it instead, but it's still a must-watch in my opinion. I loved these anime, unlike with previous scores there isn't really much to criticize, and most would have a 4.5 if only they were better-polished jewels (Tatami Galaxy, Legend of the Galactic Heroes or Texhnolyze come to mind).

4,5: These are considered by me either masterpieces (Monster) or just anime I enjoyed to the fullest (Needless). Truly excellent works: the people responsible should be proud of themselves. 

5,0: Only a few shows have ever gotten a perfect score from me. A five stars rating means I love every single aspect of these shows, and to lengths no other anime could ever hope to reach. Currently here: Gintama, Kaiji, Attack on Titan.

(Although One Piece remains my very favorite thing in this manganime world, I deducted half a star to the animated counterpart because it's just not up to the proper level anymore)

Now in just one word:

0.5 -> Vomit ; 1.0 -> Shit

1.5 -> Failure ; 2.0 -> Bad

2.5 -> Tolerable ; 3.0 -> Enjoyable

3.5 -> Nice ; 4.0 -> Amazing

4.5 -> Excellent ; 5.0 -> Unsurpassable

Then I’m glad I can cross that one out. Pheewww. And I doubt I’ll be seeing Samumenco in near future. After I catch up with HxH, current season, and finish Bubblegum Crisis, I’ll probably start Needless or Fantastic Children. And even then my GameCube emulator is constantly whispering: “Twilight Princess!!” :I Too bad, Samumenco, too bad. Hopefully one day in never ever future.

I’m definitely pumped up for some Yuasa anime, just now when I recently completed all of his works with Kemonozume, which is a great example how simple, almost archetypical premise can be made into almost unique experience by brilliant execution. My hopes are up. :D

And yeah… that one looks very skippable… and I’m baffled by Madhouse’s terrible streak. I started to read the premise and the moment I read “an ordinary high school boy” my eyes rolled. I’m seriously losing faith in Madhouse, and some other studios, like Gainax. Just looking at their two upcoming anime… ughhh. I seriously have no idea why they started adapting these kinds of anime… probably finances or smth. No matter how generic that shit is, it still sells.

I've heard about guillotine gorila and similar kind of barf that occured, for some weird reason. It kind of makde my faith in good old notiminA crumble... I didn't even try Galilei Donna. I heard that one was sporofying as growing grass. 

I shouls probably just catch up on it for the sake of not having to do DTAB of it... ughhh. Future generations are fucked. Then again, it's either that or 20 latest episodes of HxH... hmmm...

Ah, Samumenco. I dropped it on episode 1... I had a hunch it could become my weekly nightmare fuel supplier... and I'm actually not so glad I was right (apparently)... it could have been anime Kick-Ass by its premise... buuuut... 

Oh, fine. Have your deafness. I can imagine it's probably because you accidently put scalpels in your ears while drunk. :3
