about me


My name is Mel.

I'm old.

I am happily married and female. I enjoy pretending that I can write. I also enjoy writing & reading poetry, doodling digitally with a wacom tablet and pen and spend too much time chasing after the dream of being a photographer when I grow up. Or an artist. Or both.

I do not believe there ought to be a stigma about watching anime. It's story telling. Whether that story telling is in a book, a movie, an anime, or another form of media--all that matters is that we are all still telling stories. 

Some of them may be badly written and cheesy--and I will happily, unflinchingly point that out--but they are still stories. We should never be ashamed of our imagination.

I encourage the use and practice of writing out all words. Leet/Text speak or typing makes me cranky. At my age, I am cranky enough without help. That said, if you have any questions or comments, I don't bite. 

Disclaimer: If I write a review on your favorite anime which you dislike, please understand that that is not a personal attack on you. I would also appreciate not being personally attacked (example: You're stupid. Your face is stupid. You suck and you don't know anything and I bet you're ugly = attacking the reviewer, not the review.)

I personally urge you with all of my being to go ahead and write a positive review in retalliation instead, as well as a recommendation. This website can only grow through our participation. The more reviews, discussion and recommendations out there, the more we can find stories we may have been missing in our lives.

Glad to see you liked Xam'd. It's my favorite anime, but its fan base is so small...

Hi, I just stumbled across your profile! I'm not a native English speaker, so you'll have to put up with my english but I'll do my best :p. Wow, we have tastes that are almost opposites xD. I'm the kind of person with a pretty high tolerance, so I'll generally watch 10 eps of a series before even considering dropping it ^_^. That's one of the reasons I could put up with Naruto, One Piece and Rurouni Kenshin. If it gets freaking awesome later, I don't really care if it bores me in the beginning ;)! I had a hell of a difficult time struggling myself through the first 25 episodes of Blood+, though. I was really close to dropping it, but then at last it finally got interesting. Well I suppose it doesn't have a site average of 4 stars for nothing xD...

Your list seems interesting nonetheless. I also enjoyed Wolf's Rain and I'm planning on watching both Haibane renmei and Spice and Wolf.

Mmm. I meant vulgarity more in the sense of calling it two bit hooker, hussy, fungus covered toenail, followed by the "If i were _____then maybe i would enjoy this anime. Thus insulting anyone who enjoys it.  :P  Agree to Disagree i guess. You take care as well.
