Hey guys and gals! . Things to know about me?  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! 

Oh and, two last things. One, if I could, I would absolutely rename my "I'm not a fan of these characters" as "Wall of Hate." Thanks for encouraging me, shiftr. :p And two, what's the difference between your fancy made-to-fit background picture and mine? Mine's a screenshot. :P

What, SH? Cuz that garden show costs lots of moola.

No i haven't seen it yet. It's always nice when you find a gem that really gets your attention. Saddly there's so much anime and too little time. I just painfully completed Serial Experiments Lain, i just kept waiting for that moment where i was like. Okay this is a great anime, but in the end it was a bunch of almosts and could have been better scenes.

Ya, ya. Hey I'm watch SH now so be happy :P 3 episodes, subbed, uber quality if it still not good, well I tried.

I pretty much like any genre as long as it has an interesting plot to it; though as a general rule i skip Shoujo perhaps because the plots are rather repeatative. That and i'm not a romancey kind of girl. I enjoy Gore/Action/Seinen titles usually. A few of my favorites would have to be; Samurai Champloo, Berserk, but i also like things like Spirited Away, Paprika, ect.

As far as Blue Gender, i wouldn't really recomend it soley based on the time period it was made even though the animation is nice. It's pretty gorey the ending was rather vague and the characters can grate on you. I personally was rooting for the bad guy :P Though i said such harsh things i did enjoy it and then purchased it. If you like an out of the box plot, gore, and older animation stylings i'd say why not give it a go.
