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, 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 don't know about not being cliche. But I think this like some other similar series I watched has something that draws the viewer in. My husband said he wasn't going to watch it because it was too graphic but yet when I play an episode he is watching right a long with me. :) SO I think like SH, Blood +, Lunar Legend, and some other dark series as much as you might want to look a way while the killer is doing their deed you can't. The animation, story, artwork, music, and characters make you watch.

I guess this story like so many other great series does a great job of drawing in the viewer and making them part of the story and the events of the story. I am looking forward to seeing where the story goes in the coming episodes

maybe... I think she killed because she got pleasure from it. The scene where she smears the blood on her lips as if it were lipstick says a lot about the way she feels about killing. Or did feel about killing.

I never keep the same avatar unless it's on a forum I browse constantly :P. But yeah, don't worry my man I'll check ALL that stuff out very soon. Right now I'm in the process of building my anime archive for my new external HDD. Since I told you I bought it, I've downloaded over 150 Gigs of Anime :P.

Kara no kyoukai is one of the best animes i have ever seen. I have seen several times. The animation is amazing as wellas the story. The only other anime like it is lunar legends however it isn't as graphic.
