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 really have been super busy and gotten a upper respiratory infection as a result of being super busy and super dehydrated as result of being sick. (SO much so that my body temp dropped.) Needless to say I was not at work Tuesday or Wednesday. (Not enough energy or strength.) But I am up and feel mostly better. Still have a cough that sounds like I smoked 2 packs a day for 20 years but other than that I feel good. ( The little kids said I sounded evil when I was laughing because when I laugh I cough.)

Normally I work 7-3 Monday-Friday. Travel with my husband to class on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. On M, W, Th I am online from about 5:30-8 at his school, and then again from 9:30ish to 10ish. On Tuesdays I am online from about 4-10ish. Thursdays is an early day, I am online from about 5ish to 7ish. Friday his school doesn't really have any place for me to hang out so I am not usually online until after 9:30 when we get home. Saturdays and Sundays I tutor. I tutor from 10-2 on Saturday and 2-5 on Sunday. So I am online from 7am when I get up to about 45 minutes til have to be at work. :) Hope this helps.

Yei, i have just begun princess tutu, a friend of mine told me it is epic, so i am trying to watch this mahou shoujo. ANd i am still watching the currently running episodes of the season.

What about you?

Ya I am though I don't mean to say K-On! is a bad show its amazing and deserves the popularity it gets, its just THE moe show with no attempts at any real plot.

Movie is "The Vanishment of Haruhi Susumiya", I don't beleive in the perfect score, but holy fuck that got close. It's gets a 9.95 because I didn't like the song that played during the end credits :)

Sig is from Candy Boy, the best "pure" yuri show I've seen. Which isn't say much since most of them suck.... :( Still defintly worth a watch and the episodes are less than 10 minutes each though don't expect much "Action", its only PG.

If you got an email but didnt see a comment that was my attempt and failure to try to respond on my phone.

Sorry it took me so long to get back. I had work today 7-3, and then I take my husband an hour away to college. So I don't usually get to check my email until later in the day on Friday. (My Fridays are kinda crazy.)

I really dislike magic themed shows, but I think the magic in show is needed because it does really explain the epicness of what Shiki is going through and lets the viewer know hey her world is very very different from my own world. I think it really adds. Plus you finially get to see some one else in group do something other than Shiki.
