Hey guys and gals! In the past, I was a mathematics major, although I am currently taking a break from college. I enjoy anime, halo, reading, heavy metal, and ballroom dancing.

Although in the end, I believe every review and rating is subjective, I like to think a little bit before I rate most of the shows I've seen, and generally try to consider several different factors, although I don't have a set formula for doing so. I enjoy discussing different viewpoints about shows I've seen, with people I've met, since I think that most people have some constructive new perspectives to contribute to my thoughts about a show, whether their opinions are positive or negative.  

I am officially looking for new anime recommendations!  I need something fantastical, engrossing,preferably (although not necessarily) dark,  something I can become fully immersed in, something that makes me appreciate it both as a work of art and as an exercise in thought. Kara no Kyoukai left a big impression on me and, in terms of anime anyways, I haven't really moved past it since I saw it years ago. I've seen comedies, romances, dramas, and even some more fantasy/horror stuff since then, but none of it really left me satisfied. I have an ever growing list of shows that I want to watch, most of which seem mildly promising, but in the end I wonder how many more of them will be disappointments! Please, if you think you have something that I might enjoy, let me know! 

Characteristics in anime that I have a bias towards (descending order of importance):

-Seinen

-Action

-Science Fiction

-Suspense

-Mecha

Oh, yes, I'm afraid you're right. Hah, I've also come into contact with a lot of people who, for some debilitating reason, think they know as to what they're talking about when it comes to the regards of storytelling--when they obviously haven't put the least bit of thought into it. Don't get me wrong, to enjoy a story is completely fine, I have no problems with that; but to berate a perfectly good story simply due to it having aspects in which a person may feel uncomfortable with is completely ridiculous. I often find, in some cases, the better the story, the more some people tend to hate them--the more work an author puts into their presentations, the more some people fail to understand. Hah, I apologize if this turned into a rant, but I do feel quite strongly about the subject.

Though, I'm glad, and indefinitely respect, that you take the time to thoroughly think about what you watch. I can compare it to reading books. In a lot of cases, it's necessary to reread certain stories; if the story is felicitously written, be it an anime--book--or manga, it should be impossible to comprehend all of the aspects in which the writer had orginially put in, within the first experience of it. Yet, sadly some refuse to experience stories more than once. Oh well.

'Tis a good song! Also that is unfortunate but the same has been happening to me. Interesting topic, since bot Knk and Garden of Words each have a unique and amazing style of animation I can't say which is better. KnK's lighting is amazing I never get tired of that scene from Murder Study: Part 1 with the blood going down the street....man that looks awesome (I realize how psycopathic that sounded). By the way you really should join Hummingbird.

hey!

thats okay :) and i leave a lot of shows unrated (sorry about that) because i used to be a really tough rater before but now i'm a bit more lenient, and if i rate the shows i've watched now as well my ratings won't be consistent ://

like some would be rated extremely high compared to some others that are probably considered "better" but because i watched it later and i wasn't so picky with the ratings.. yeah. if you know what i mean.

thanks for the offer though! if you really wanna recommend me something have a look at my favourite genres on the side :)

or just any anime really i tend to watch all genres - if an anime is good and i haven't watched it/ don't hesitate to speak up!

P.S I actually haven't watched Asura but as for dark and hauntingly good anime etc. I heard it was good give me a shout if you've watched it~

Ahh, that is very true--isn't it? Hah, I suppose it's a true gauge which allows one to indicate as to how much they've studied that particular series. I'd assume this would also be pretty helpful for reviewers in terms of legitimacy to their opinion.

So, now, if one may have a disregarded opinion about a certain series, the discussion could go something to the account of: "Oh? So, that's what you think about (insert series). Well, I can tell you that I've studied it more thoroughly than yourself. Hah! I'd refer you to watch it again, kind person!"

Hah, and then the discussion is won in a very simple manner.
