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

Heya,

They weren't used much, and didn't really fit with the V4 design. There's no plans to return them

Hi thanks for taking interest in my background sadly the background is not from anime anime but is an OC

I have seen the original nge series as well. I liked parts of it but overall it honestly didn't do it for me. 

It's not that I dislike anything in particular about mecha anime, is just that I don't like the overly boyish tones that mecha anime in general have (is also why I'm not big into fighting and shounen anime like yu yu hakusho and hunter x hunter - they are both legendary I know) 

As for Eureka Seven, reason for liking it is simple : despite having a mecha background, its not a mecha anime. It's a coming of age anime, even slice of life to an extent. Mecha is merely the medium through which the protagonist learns this

Sure :) I am not used to anime-planet and public comments yet. I guess it'll take a while.

Hi there, 

Great to hear from you. You're right, my profile does need updating haha although that said, other than my age, everything else in the is still spot on lol 

As for slice of life recommendations, have you tried Azumanga Daioh and Honey & Clover. Lovely Complex is another good one
