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

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.

Hah, well do be sure to let me know if it picks up. I'd love to give it another watch if its worth it. I'm not sure if you've seen it, and I may have already recommended it, but Kemonozume is an amazing anime. Very interesting characters, at the very least of things that are interesting about it.

Hmm, ha, ha! I had to take a look after you mentioned the recounting. That is very funny--verily so. Hah, honestly there are probably other aspects of the site that could have had some work, but it's pretty cool, I suppose. If people now want to show how much they like a certain series, they are free to do so. Though, personally, I've never rewatched a series in its entirety. I probably will one day, but for some reason I just can't see myself doing that right now; unlike say: a book that I enjoyed would be easier for me to reread. I do have a few anime in mind that I'd like to see again, though. Kemonozume being one of them.

Indeed! I actually fixed mine and did it all the first night it was up but then everything randomly reset. I guess it had bugs...now i don't feel like redoing it. XD; I guess i'll just keep it around for when i rewatch shows in the future. Though I'm not going to make it so it ever shows up on my profile. I like that you can check if you want it disabled or not. XDDD Though when i originally recorded all my rewatching the months went from 3 to 6 or 7... /facepalm. Thanks! Normally i don't make a chart and go with the flow but i have a friend who decided to try watching everything this season with me so i went ahead and made one. Watch anything good recently??
