Hello there, folks. I'm twenty-five years old, an aspiring game designer, and was the administrator of one of the last standing Outlaw Star fan sites, Outlaw Star UK, which unfortunately closed some time ago. However, it continues to exist on Facebook, so please do visit.

I don't really know what to write in these bios, but I'd be glad to talk on here or make some new friends.

Ranma 1/2 was my first manga.  I own the first twenty-some episodes on DVD but haven't gotten around to it. I have so much stuff to watch both anime and non-anime and I usually have to take big breaks after watching a lot of anime because I get sick and tired of everything I watch.

My SAO review was written as my hundredth review for my website where I was asked to destroy it as hard as possible. And thus I tried. But  part two was too entertaining. So destruction failed.

You are the 12457th person who doesn't get the obvious.

"Why are you so negative?"

I'm not negative, I'm simply demanding. After watching a lot of series, it happens on its own.

"If you rate the vast majority of anime negatively, why do you bother watching it? Think about it for a minute."

Champ I have thought about it for years and there are several good reasons I do it.

1. I like anime so watch anime.

2. If I like a show then it must have a huge gap to the score from a show I don't like.

3. I won't know if I dislike a show if I don't watch it.

4. I won't appreciate anime I like if I don't watch anime I hate.

5. I watch anything I want to watch.

6. 90% of everything is shit, so I'm very objective and rate 90% of everything with low scores.

"Some reviewers have to review absolute stinkers, but they're usually doing it because it's their job; their profession. In your case... well, why?"

Because I am a real fan. I do it even if I am not paid to do it and I am being objective on top of being demanding. Better than being a casual fanboy who deifies crap. Those creeps have ruined the anime industry.

"I can only imagine it making you miserable. Especially given the near-six months you've spent wasting your time."

Six months? I am watching anime since I was 7 and it has filled my life with joy. That does not mean I'm going soft on it since 90% of them are crap.

Oh my, dear sir, it seems you have invoked a battle of wits that has no place happening in the first place. *sigh* I only I wish I had better things to do than respond but alas I must now defend my honor *rolls eyes* :3

Okay here we go (because I have nothing better to do:

1) My argument that it's bad is based on my 21 year old self.

:D

2) I agreed with you that kids liked it because I liked it as a child.

:)

3) My agreement that I liked it too doesn't void my opinion that I now think it's pretty lame because that's an opinion based on an age difference of approximately eleven years.

:3

4) I don't know this Adric knave personally so I had nothing to do with his 0.5 rating but please send your complaints to him personally since I had nothing to do with it.

XD

5) I actually believe Hayao Miyazaki's films are better for kids than Pokemon although if we're talking about series specifically and not anime in general then I will have to agree there's nothing better out there at the moment.

^^"

6) If you reread my comment and reread your deductions you'll find that most of them should be directed at this Adric chap. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with him I'm just a Cheshire cat making a own random comment as I was passing through the other day (or week? Never on long enough to remember).

:D

Peace,

cheshirecat3 ^__^"
