Hey guys and gals! At long last, I'm finally about to finish my degree in Mathematical Sciences, which means I'll largely be absent from ap.com and anime watching this semester. But if there's something that catches your attention on my page, please feel free to message me, and I'll reply at a leisurely pace. 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, one last thing. 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

Before the weird demon mask showed up, it was a cool OP really neat song. But I have to confess, I loathe Mecha so it could be epic and I still would't like it :P

You pick and I will watch.

You got to finish Howl's Moving Castle and then watch Spirted Away. So good and so interesting.

Are you talking about shikabane hime??? If so I watched on Hulu so I watched both kuro and aka.

Sorry i didnt respond. I ment to respond after your last message but i got caught up with work and planning next 2 years abroad. I am fine thanks, how about you?

I see you are watching clanned. I really enjoyed watching that more than i thought. Some parts of it were better than other but overall i really enjoyed. If you do like clanned then i suggest you watch H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~. It get sort of slow in the middle but the last ep's really brings it all together.

I dont really know what type of genre you like, also any anime spefic series you like?

i was just reading so of the other comments and i have to agree with bunnylovesanime. i have saw all 4 of those animes and they are great.

Hey hey! Nah, my internet's not gone crazy again (well actually there is a slight problem with the bill for it, but im fixing that by chatting angrily to the ISP company, i'll get it fixed eventually)

I just havent been on as much as i wish i could because my exam for Summer School Jap is coming up next monday and i've been making up for the study i've neglected recently due to a terribly addictive substance called @NiMe. Dangerous stuff, it melts your brain with moe, and questions your morality with awesome antiheros that kill good guys. But seriously, ive been watching too much anime and looking up too much anime news lately i'm starting to forget stuff we learned in class last week, lol.

So yeah, I wont be on here as much for this week, till Monday, when my exam takes place. I'll be all good then for the next 2 weeks before REAL UNI starts on the 28th :\

But yeah i need to download ShiHime Akai and Kuro (forgot which one's first, Akai?) And then i can watch it during those 2 weeks. Well, it might take 1 day a season if i get into my EPIC MODE, lols.

And thank you very much for so kindly praising my ramblings as "well-composed and energetic". I can somewhat understand the energy emanating from my speech because my DNA is made of anime, but well-composed? You're too kind :)

And i really enjoy talking to you too~! (>^.^)> Hope i can watch ShiHime soon so i bask in the reflected glory of your favourite show! But first, TESUTO TESUTO!!! (well more like EXAMU EXAMU, but that doesnt sound right)

Ciao~!
