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 think this one will end up getting almost a 5. I really think it paints a dark and twisted picture of the world.

I think you would the darkness and the distrubing story of Lunar Lengends. Like Garden of Sinners you just never expect it to be that way. Never. However I do think Garden of sinners takes the cake for the most bloody and graphic anime I have seen in a while.  I really enjoy the girty city that she lives and the room with the tvs where they all hang out. I think it really talks about what it is that they do. Clearly they run some sort of detective agency out of this small space and get the leads on their cases from the television. I also enjoy the communication or lack there of between the characters. They all seem to know what they need to do and do it. I think this series is a good mix of great art, a dark hauntly beatiful music and mystery to keep it interesting. I plan on watching the next episode tonight. (hopefully)

I think he is telling her that he will be by her side to help make sure she never kills like she did in the past. He is clearly the narrator of the series, and going back and looking at the events of the past. Why? Is the question I have. Why is he going back and reliving the horrible things she has done. After the first murders turned his stomach. Clearly down the road we are going to get to see something happen to Shiki. I though the 3rd episode was not as good as the second one. When I watched the second one I was shocked when she wanted to kill him and even more shocked at him stalking her with out fear. To me the 3rd episode was laking. Although the girl character was interesting. To feel nothing for so long and then to feel intense pain. To kill because it allowed her to feel. I think this episode was way darker than the previous ones because besides murder you had rape, beating a woman, and you got to see all of it.
