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

I'm not sure what to say without spoiling it, so let me know when you finish watching the series then I will comment.

I look forward to discussing kara no kyoukai in detail with you after yu have finished it.(^_^)

I watched the orginial Evagallion. I am watching Garden of Sinners  ep 5 right now. I am about 1/2 way through the episode. Let me just say wow was I confused for the first half.

Yup, especially when your not being distracted by outdated animation :P

I watched both seasons over a few days a year ago.  I remember having a grimmace on my face but forcing my way through both seasons because I was hoping it to get better.

It's been too long to remember all of it, but I'm pretty sure it was around the time I was watching a lot of serious/dark shows like SE Lain, Elfen Leid, Bokurano, etc.  I guess I had the wrong expectations.  I'm pretty sure I gave it such a low score because I went in expecting one thing and got something completley different.

BTW, you would probably like Gunslinger Girl and Claymore.  Both are pretty close to SH in terms of theme and really good.

There won't be like any animation (cept for maybe a step forward or something minor) for like 2 minutes straight.
