My name is Mel.
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.
