Background: Boring info about me, so read at your own risk!
Well I guess I'll start off by saying that I'm sarcastic, overly opinionated, realistic, very straight to the point, and I have an extremely dark sense of humor. The first animes that I finished were Read or Die, and Cyborg: 009, but it wasn't until Naruto started playing on Toonami that I started getting into the whole anime deal. Ever since, I've been watching shows of all genres, and have seen over 300 different animes. As of now, I'm a huge fan of all Type-Moon works (especially Fate and Tsukihime), and I generally love the Moe genre (sadly). That's about everything you need to know, but if for what ever reason you'd like to know more, just ask me! Oh... and one more thing: People need to STOP supporting fan-subs, they are RUINING the anime industry! Either watch your shows on sites like Crunchyroll, or just buy them... Seriously...
Ratings: My Ratings are based mainly on my enjoyment of the series. Complexity and quality do play a role in it, but my enjoyment has the biggest impact.
In this section I'll list what the ratings mean to me and I'll give at least two examples of shows that fit the criteria. Note: I only rate shows with full numbers (meaning no 2.5 or 3.5 ratings), this way I can more easily differentiate shows I like vs. those I don't. Also remember that just because I gave a show a bad rating (3 or lower), it doesn't necessarily mean that I don't like it, it just means that it wasn't as good as other shows...
5 - It was perfection in my eyes, this is the reason why I love anime. It takes a lot to get this score, so when I do rate something with a 5, take note.
4 - I really enjoyed the show, but because of little annoyances, or lack of depth, I couldn't in good faith give it a 5. These shows were good, maybe even great, but they were not amazing. While not perfect, these series should still not be overlooked. I recommend each show with a score of 4 or above.
3 - If it was just a little better at presenting itself it could have been more than what it was. These shows have a lot of wasted potential and it's a shame, because they were enjoyable for the most part.
2 - These shows must have taken some serious thinking to come up with (sarcasm). Almost no redeeming qualities are present, and the series themselves are easily forgotten. While very mediocre in quality, the show itself isn't terrible. If I wasn't experienced in anime, I would enjoy these shows. Luckily I know better...
1 - An utter atrocity of a show, either through the ground-breaking stupidity of the characters, or the unoriginality/lack of anything that could be considered plot. Whoever made these shows should be ashamed of themselves. Only people who are new to anime, or intense weaboos would enjoy these series.

Favorite Bands: Most people would say my taste in music is bad, but then again, fuck them.
Favorite (non-animated) Movies: I don't usually enjoy movies, they tend to be too short to have any meaningful development. With that said, these are my favorites.
Favorite T.V. Shows: The non-animated kind... DERRRRR

What I think about those who claim "Nihilism isn't a bad thing":
LASTLY) (Just because I hate subjectivity that much) I can prove you, and any other existentialist that insists 'reality is subjective' indisputably wrong without so much as one word in the argument by simply striking you all in the face with a brick. (Think about it.) In addition, you all prove yourselves wrong by eating a sandwich. The existentialist proves reality is objective by attempting to convince me that reality is subjective, after all, if reality truly is subjective, then it doesn't matter whether I know it or not, does it? At this point, you 'win' this argument by -- never -- speaking -- another -- word -- in -- this -- argument.
