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 always 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):



-Science Fiction



Studios I Love (Most of the time):


-Production I.G.



If I was told that only 10 anime are allowed to remain in the world, and the rest are to be thrown into the fire.... (in no particular order)

I also went into it critically, namely because of the hype, so I see what you mean. I agree, the premise is exciting. I rated it a 4/5 for many reasons. I enjoyed the sensation of trying to rationalize the mysteries of the show. The mid-episode explanations added to the world-building a bit; I think certain small details, such as the explanations of the titan anatomy, and the 3D maneuver gear added to the complexity of the universe, and a touch of realiity. However, I think the biggest contributing factor to my rating was the fact that this show made me very eager for a second season, moreso than most other shows i've watched. I agree, there are absolutely flaws in the show, pacing, characters, but I think that given the scope of the events, these are some of the compromises that had to be made in order to sustain the tense atmosphere throughout the shows entirety. But I am very glad that there was minimal comic relief and that it was devoid of moe themes. OK, I don't have a problem with moe in some cases :p But that is totally dependent on what themes or genres are being tackled. Admittedly, there are many ways that a second season can be catastrophic, but I won't dwell on those thoughts :p I haven't read the manga, althugh now it is definitely on my short list. As far as the email, take your time :) i hope you get better soon, and happy new year!
