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

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

Shaft cuts alot of corners in there animation because they have small budgets. Hence why alot of shows end up using far away shots or stills with people just talking. So I would be surprised if they used such a costly method like CGI in Madoka.

I don't think its CGI, Shaft doesn't have money for normal animation let alone fancy computer stuff.

It's been about a year so I don't even remember the ending.  I just remember not being happy at all while watching.  The end probably also affecting my rating.

I didn't like SH for the same reasons as Gai-rei, but ever more because of the fanservice.  Fanservice is fine and all, I like ecchi as much as the next guy, but if you're trying to watch a dark/serious show and they keep throwing some annoying cowgirls giant breasts in your face constantly it gets old quick.

The rest, story/etc, was pretty meh IMO, so the bad parts took an average 2.5/5 show and dropped it to almost nothing IMO.

Why did you like it so much?  At best it's a generic shounen with some fanservice thrown in.  There's plenty of dark shows out there that were far better.
