Hello! and welcome to my profile!

I am Raux, for about a year before joining, I had stumbled across this website while trying to find some recommendations of good Anime to see. I found this site to be the most informative I could find, and shortly after joining i began to write my own reviews. Although i do not pop them out like rabbits, every review that i write is given hours of consideration and many rough drafts. I am not fast at these. I don't quite enjoy writing reviews about Anime's that i do not like. Yet even though i don't like it, I realize it's benefit, it shows you what you like and what you do not like. I give this website credit for giving me a way to increase my writing skills, and for developing my judgement in art. The friends I have made here I hope to have for a long while.

I love stories, Anime has some great ones. I was prejudice against Anime for a while because, like the cursed twilight saga, it obtains some wierd followers that make your skin itch just being around them. As I've grown, I've realized, there are people who I make itchy, and it's a poor reason to judge. There is beauty, as well as deformation in this artform. But in the end it comes down to this. I loves me a good story!

Here is my rating system, for those of you that are interested. first and foremost. My review rating system and my star rating system are totally different.

With my reviews, I am logically analysing everything I see, the progression of story, the feel of the score, the appeal of the animation. Although I will express my personal feelings of it, I try not to let personal preference completely hinder my judgement.

Review ratings:

10 - Hasn't happened, just like perfection, it is a goal that i always shoot for, but will fall short of. It's a method of motivation 

9.5 - Best of Best I've ever seen. if someone argues with me about a 9.5 in person, I will very likely start raising voice as if defending a family member. These are stories I feel have changed me and affected me for the better, down to my core.

9 - Amazing, if it were a person, I'd have it raise my own child in my stead if I were dead.

8 - a great watch, a few problems, but overall it affected me very emotionally and was a very well-built artistic machine

7 - Give it a watch, it'll be awesome

6 - You bored? this will entertain you

5 - Good stuff, but only needed in small doses

4 - not really good

3- pretty bad

2 - Terrible

1 - .......why did anybody spend money on this? people really thought this was good enough to make?

0 -  Just ignore it, like that annoying guy in class who seriously ate paper during class to see if anyone would talk to him about it. 

As for my star rating, the method is quite simple. 

5 stars - I freaked out hard core while watching it

4 stars - I freaked out a lot

3 stars - pretty good, definitely needed to eat something while I was watching it.

2 stars - not going to lie, I could have fallen asleep while watching this

1 stars - haha, I definetely fell asleep, my dreams were more entertaining

0 stars - hated it. hate hate hate

Favorite Anime - ok, I have something called my pedestal, only three are allowed on the top at one time. and they all share first place.

Note: the positions are going to change as more Animes are viewed, and as my preferences and tastes develop.

       Steins;gate, Anohana, and Clannad (imagine it on a throne of gold, these shows deserve it)

No, it was the scene where Iwasawa was playing her last song "my song". It was so god damn beautiful. And the ending was great too! And yeah, Vampire Knight is largely a fangirl oriented show from my research. Like, I know alot of guys who enjoy Twilight (not myself, but I won't bash the series. To each their own), but alot of people say only girls can girl into the storyline of Vampire Knight. Wasn't really written for a typical male mindset to enjoy? That means nothing of course, and I hope it gets better for you! I'm watching a series now called Gosick, and it's pretty (go)sick man! Fuck that joke was bad... but really, it's pretty cool. Feels episodic at times? But the plot is starting to poke through more, and a review I read said the ending wraps up the plot points beautifully.

I actually recall enjoyIng her voice. It was the little blonde friend that put me on edge. So damn irritating. But for what it's worth, everything I've ever told me after story is a masterpiece... And if you're speaking so highly of it... I'll give it a try. I'm currently out of anything too great to watch, so hopefully this saves me :) And yeah, Im not the kind of guy to easily cry, but I only have in 2 titles. Wolves Rain when I was younger, and Angel Beats recently. But those were moreso tears of joy haha. I hope I get Clannad. Love being that move by something, you know? As a guy, we don't get private moments like that too often, haha.

Clannad? I'm trying SO HARD to get into it, but I just can't :[ You see, it's a difficult situation for me, because I have heard that it is one of the greatest animes ever created, and have never heard a bad word from people who know anime (I'm sure alot of petty people out there hate it solely based on the fact that it's slice-of-lifey or whatever, but their opinions are overly biased and are moot.) The problem with Clannad is that I'm watching it on Netflix, and the english voice acting is... well... I'm sorry to be offensive, but I can only describe it as an abortion. Just... so awful. (It doesn't help matters that I finally got my Girlfriend to watch Spice and Wolf with me. One of my all time favorites :])
