I am not chii, but I am her friend ;) <3

Hello and welcome to my profile! It's been a while, and lately I've been playing catchup with all the great anime that's been coming out in that couple of years. I still don't spend nearly as much time on anime as I used to but I have been able to sit down to a few viewing sprees which is nice.

So, who is this Otaku108 person? Just some random person in the USA which doesn't tell you much I know. I try to write reviews on some of the shows that leave an indelible impression on me, be it positive or negative. I've been very bad about adding recs thou, and for that I'm sorry Sothis lol. I also try to respond to questions or comments on any of my stuff so that's always much appreciated even if you're not of the same opinion on my reiviews.

Right now the shows that I've enjoyed most lately have definitely been Log Horizon, Fractale, and probably Golden Time. Still plenty more I'm going to watch soon so be on the look out for possible future reviews!

Thank you for visiting!

A bit about my ratings/star "system" from worst to best:

0.5 Stars: Something about this title has irked me to the point that I will actively steer people away from it. Usually incest or death(s) of the main character(s) gives me that reaction.

1.0 Stars: Ultimately bad but I leave it up to others to make their own choices about, after all, everyone is different.

1.5 Stars: Also ultimately bad but had at least one redeeming value to it that made me recognize it as... "consumable".

2.0 Stars: Not very bad, but nothing noteworthy or worth revisiting later.

2.5 Stars: Decent, I enjoyed watching/reading but I wasn't overly impressed, I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone however. Might come back to it again years down the line.

3.0 Stars: I enjoyed it, there was probably something about it that stuck in my head but it also lacked something important and so I would probably only recommend it to people that specifically enjoy the same type of materials. Higher chance of me wanting to watch/read it again.

3.5 Stars: This was entertaining, I probably laughed a lot, got some sort of strong feeling from it and would probably revisit it again somewhere down the road more than once. I would also recommend this to someone if they also liked similar titles.

4.0 Stars: This was a noteworthy title, I enjoyed it thoroughly and will definitely watch/read it again. I probably will recommend it to just about anyone that enjoys the genres it's a part of. I've probably seen/read it more than once already.

4.5 Stars: Near perfection, I enjoyed this so much that I couldn't wait to talk to someone about it, sadly there was just this one thing that made it not quite worthy of 5 stars. It would get a recommendation to almost any anime/manga fan. And again, I've more than likely seen/read it more than once or twice at this

5.0 Stars: Perfection in my eyes, this was such an awesome, unique or heart string strummer also having found nothing serious to gripe about or it was just -that damned good- that I could overlook any obvious flaws it might have had that it got the last 0.5th of a star. This was either dead on my type of anime/manga or it just surprised me so much that I felt it deserved the praise. Some titles I might not recommend to people because they are so geared towards my own specific likes and dislikes that I'm not really sure how much someone else would like it. I've undoubtedly seen and read this title multiple times and will do so again at a later date.

I can see why you'd put a limit of 5-10 favorites on DVDs since everything on your list is available on DVD save for Denno Coil. Well, and technically InuYasha Final, if you wanted to include that in InuYasha, but I'm not familiar with Viz re-releasing InuYasha in a more condensed form than the season sets so that would be a pricey pickup anyways (especially if it's out of print.)

If you're ever undecided on the DVD vs Blu-ray for series you start to collect, perhaps actually seeing them would be helpful. I haven't acquired the blu-ray versions of any of the titles on your list (Moribito and Ouran are available) but I have pre-ordered next week's Twelve Kingdoms Part 1 blu-ray release.

I've made attempts to narrow down some of my favorite of favorites in the past and managed to narrow it down to 20 series (which jumped up to 21 when Brotherhood was simply too spectacular to not put on there.) I went ahead and edited my Favorite Anime list with these titles. Make of it what you will since I'm not claiming that these titles are inherently superior.

Just a bit lethargic from the smoke and worried about what I should do with my anime DVD collection if any of those fires get too close to home. Otherwise, intrigued by this event happening so close.

You've actually watched a good amount of stuff. More than I'm actually used to seeing by people contacting me out of the blue (but those are mostly Youtube users so it's probably expected.) Do you also happen to collect any anime on DVD/blu-ray?

Thanks for your kind words. It's always nice when someone who disagrees nevertheless acknowledges that he can understand where I'm coming from. Nice to see that there's still reasonable folks on the Internet ;)

Other Moribito fans actually had similar reactions to yours. Ie. they thought my review was good even if a bit harsher than usual. It just so happens that they too disagreed about that one part. Funnily enough.
