Thanks for stopping by my profile.

Katrina here. . . well mostly most days ;) A little about me. . .

I live in sunny California with my husband and my cats. I love shoes, Asian Kung Fu Generation ( well music in general but they are my fav), Making stuff with my own hands and of course anime! I am a HUGE Ghibli/Miyazaki fan! I'm digging some of the stuff that Shaft is putting out as well as Madhouse and hold a very special place in my heart for the following animes:

Ouran High School Host Club

12 Kingdoms

Spirited Away

Honey and Clover

Samurai Champloo

Wagnaria!! (Working!!)

Durarara!!

Arakawa Under the Bridge

Saiunkoku Monagatari

K

Attach on Titan

Bleach

My Neighbor Totoro

My Bride is a Mermaid

Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei

My first anime I watched purely by accident.

I had asked my dad if he could give me my VHS (dates me I know) of Jem and the Holograms only to put the tape in a find that he had taped over my "Twilight in Paris" episode with Akira.

My emotions went from anger over my lost recording to: down right confusion on the plot of the story, enthrallment at the animation style that I had never seem before, and then at the end a sense of wonder (still laced with a heavy dose of wth did I just watch though).

That was when my horizons grew a bit, the year was 1992 and I was 10 years old. I watched that movie again and I still have the same feeling I did the first time. . .

WTH did I just watch?!?!

I can't really say I know everything about everything when it comes to anime. . . but I consider myself far from a newb! Thanks again for stopping by and reading. . . I would love to hear your suggestions I am always open to them! :)

My Rating Scale for Anime and Manga:

1-2 (Written Review) or 0 to 1.5 Stars (Rated not Reviewed):

Utter and complete garbage that is lacking in ALL major areas i.e.; plot structure, creativity and uniqueness of story line, character development, theme, animation or musicality. An UN-WATCHABLE or UN-READABLE anger inducing time-suck! Beware!

3-5 (Written Review) or 2 Stars (Rated not Reviewed):

Semi-watchable. Will leave you very unsatisfied and more than likely angry. Missing at least four of the six major elements. You will probably leave this unfinished.

6-7 (Written Review) or 2.5 to 3 Stars (Rated not Reviewed):

Decent yet forgettable. Lacking in at least three of the six areas, but, not terrible enough to not watch all the way through. Generally starts off well and ends unsatisfactorily.

8 (Written Review) or 3.5 Stars (Rated not Reviewed) :

Very well done. Has almost all of the right elements. Lacking in one to two of the six major areas. Worth watching and purchasing for your collection.

9 (Written Review) or 4 to 4.5 Stars (Rated not Reviewed):

Nearly perfect. A must have for your collection. Missing perfection generally by only one element (plot).

10 (Written Review) or 5 Stars (Rated not Reviewed):

Perfection. Not missing a single element. If you don't own this a piece of your heart will die. Does not EVER get old. Reaches beyond expectations. A classic. Wins over the hearts of non-enthusiast. Leaves you craving for more.

I'll check out Kuragehime! Thnx!

Hmm.... Good recommendations.... Theres Angel Beats! and Kanon 2006 (also made by Key which makes it AWESOME! I personally like Angel Beats! more though...). If you want some supernatural/magic action, I'd recommend Kuroshitsuji, 07-Ghost, and Jigoku Shoujo. (None of these are Shoujo animes though!) If you liked Detective Conan, then I'd recommend Gosick. (I love it since it has more romance than Detective Conan and it's A LOT shorter! It's still going on though...) If you liked Toradora, you'll probably like Shakugan no Shana. It was awesome to me and I plan on watching the second season soon!

I personally really loved Rozen Maiden and Read or Die (TV) (aka R.O.D.) since I saw them when I was like... 8 or 9. I still LOVE them! (If you're gonna watch Read or Die, I'd recommend watching the OVA first. That shows you how everything started...)

Well, thats A LOT! I hope you'll like some of these recommendations! Although they may keep you busy for a while... You take care too!

thanks for the reply lol :D.

Watching an Anime based on its OP, hrm i dont think i've done that one before lol :P Though i do have some OP's on my mp3 player, like tengen toppa's haha :D.

Haha yah i loved Kimi kiss, I was watching it when it frist came out, so only 1 episode a week, and during that time i was watching 6 other shows, but i found myself wanting to see nexts week episode for kimikiss a million times more than the others! I say give it 5 episodes or so, youll know by then if you really want to watch it lol.

My-hime, use to be my number 1 anime, but then tengen toppa came around lol :P. My-hime does start off pretty slow so i can see why one would stop watching, i almost stoped watching myself, but omg it got sooooo good lol.

Oh you never finished code geass, thats a little strange cus that show catchs your attention form episode 1 and never lets it go lol. I've converted a lot of non-anime watchers over to anime with that show haahaha.

Ah and i think ill pick up Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei, i heard a lot about it before i quit watching anime a few years ago, I generally like to start my day of anime off with 1 eipsode of some funny anime so woot :D And your review seemed pretty cool also btw.

But i gotta finish Gundam 00, only got like 5 episodes left woot!
