Hello everyone!

I'm an Italian student, born 1991, currently studying Japanese and German at the University. Living my life as a would-be rock musician, lover of books, music, videogames, languages, politics, philosophy and, of course, anime. You could call me a long-time anime fan, but my conscious adventure into the territory started only in 2008.

I watched anime for my whole childhood, only I didn't know I was. I grew up with stuff like Dragon Ball, Heidi, Digimon, Lupin the Third, Captain Tsubasa, and so on, but I didn't know it was something from Japan called "anime". Sure, I could tell they were somehow different from Disney or Cartoon Network stuff, but that was it.

Time passed, I somehow found out about the word "anime". My brother-in-law and my sister would often tell me about the anime world THEY grew up with, and, strangely enough, I got nostalgic about the stuff I didn't watch but kind of knew about, like Mazinger Z, Grendeizer, Captain Harlock, and so on. So I started longing for that world I missed.

Then, something...curious happened. At that time, it was probably early 2008, the song "These are the days of our lives" by Queen struck me with the force of a thousand Rasengan. That is one POWERFUL song, it can make you nostalgic about ANYTHING. You'll want your childhood back when you hear it. Well, it made me nostalgic especially about what I had missed in my youth, and about the cartoons that made my childhood. At about the same time, I realised that everyone of them I still had fond memories of was an anime...so I kind of suddently realised that, with that nostalgia and huge fascination of mine, I already WAS an anime fan. So...I decided to throw myself in that world, with three goals: 1)To watch the series that made the 80's and '70's and that I had missed; 2)To watch and live again the series which made by childhood; 3)To watch what that "anime" thing has to offer nowadays.

I owe Freddie Mercury my time-consuming passion for anime and manga, basically.

I decided to start with the series that held (and still holds) the dearest place of the "Nostalgia Department" in my heart: Digimon Adventure. And that's how I discovered the wonderful world of FANSUB and the "Rule of Japanese Dub Supremacy". Italy, too, suffers the horrible phenomenon of censorship, poor scripts, and "let's-dumb-it-down-and-make-it-more-childish-for-kids" kind of adaptation. And then came Evangelion, Harlock, Naruto, and I went on from there.

Note that I'm not counting as "watched" the anime I saw in my childhood, so my "anime-life-o-meter" thingy counts only from 2008 on. Note also that my ratings are for the "general watching experience" I got, technical aspects are taken into account only to a certain extent.

Hello!  sothis is redesigning the anime-planet site, and plans to roll out an awesome new site design in July, we believe.

The blog pages are going away, and will be gone when the site redesign goes live. Your blog here will be removed from the site.

So, if want to keep the information posted in your blog, you will need to copy this information someplace else on the site. If you have any questions how or where to do this, please feel free to get back to me, and I will try to assist.

Hey now, I tried really really hard to be unbiased with grave of the fireflies lol I just couldnt for the life of me grow any emotional attachment to the characters. wasnt trying to be a hater haha I just like to write how I feel, and try and crack some jokes in my reviews. To be blunt, your right, I didnt know all the history about the movie. If I were to re-write the review, I'd give it a slightly better grade, but I still didnt enjoy it. To each his own though I suppose haha

Hello there!

Thanks for commenting on uhm... I think 2 of my reviews. The only thing I know about the Narutaru manga is that it's way more gruesome and way more conclusive when compared to the anime. As for Queen Emeraldas... hmm yeah it's probably correct to say that it's mainly something Leijiverse fans will enjoy. It's pretty mediocre in almost every way, but definitely entertaining so I'd definitely recommend it, seeing as it's only 4 episodes.
