I'm a busy student living in Seattle Washington. Anime and Video Games are both things I enjoy in varying quatities, but I also enjoy surfing, spelunking, hiking and anything else I can afford. My anime interests are usually exhausted in large quantities over short, segregated periods of time; however, even if I'm not presently watching anime I don't mind taking time to rate, discuss, or recommend series or movies. My love for anime started with the shounen and mecha genres but I've lately enjoyed romance, drama, comedy, and science fiction affiliated series. Even though my interests have broadened and my critiques harshened I still appreciate anything with a decent narrative and likeable characters. I especially appreciate anime with exceptional aspects that break my genre barriers and allow me to ignore those 'Ecchi", 'Magic Girl', and other tags that often raise a flag-of-avoidance. I'm always open to give and recieve recommendations so feel free to ask me any questions or leave any comments. Additionally, my favorite colors are red and light blue, and I like most edible food besides fish.

Personal Rating Scale:

0-2.5: Drop-worthy anime with too many nagging flaws to make up for whatever positive elements are present.

3.0: Mediocre anime with more positive than negative elements.

3.5-4.0: Anime that's an overall pleasure to watch.

4.5: My personal favorite series or movies that deserve top-ten positions.

5.0: It's hard for me to give anything a perfect score.

Hi, and thank you for you input into the character database.

You images are wonderful, but could you possibly resize them to the necessary 130x180 pixels for the upload? 9130x200 max) as it saves me a job of having to resize them!

The REALLY AWESOME class is a chemistry class (yay for science credits) [are there distribution requirements at the U?]. It was created by a professor who believes strongly in "science for the non-science individual". It's a class that you can either attend and do great and get an A, or you can blow it off and probably get a B+. Sort of what you want to make it. (I get anxious if I think I'm blowing something off, plus my GPA could use all the A's it can get... freshman year was not kind to me). But you learn about art conservation (cool) and how art materials are made. I think we spend a section learning how to make and possibly making paint. I also know there is a large part we spend manipulating metal with different chemicals and then make earrings and bracelets. So basically, this is like summer camp for credit. As a non-science major, I'm pretty excited. Plus I'm interested in art conservation anyway.

And you're right: I should have falcon-punched him. What a jerk. That's the problem with being an American female in Paris or Italy. One of the worst stories from Italy: I was on a really crowded bus with a friend (male) and this local was trying to do this weird 'accidental' rub up on me thing so my friend traded spots with me so I wasn't being molested and the guy stole his wallet and his passport. Lame. People suck.

About what did you write your history? (Or has babelfish failed me?)

I'm taking a weird mix of stuff because I didn't get into any of my 'Plan A' classes. So I'm taking Public Art, History of the Ottoman Empire, Myth & Religion in Traditional Societies, and Economics of Crime and Punishment. I've pretty much fulfilled the major requirements (I just need to take senior seminar next term) so I can just dink around and get credits in any department. I do still need to take some science classes though... blargh. I'm planning on taking some lame bio class online over the summer and then next year I'm going to take this REALLY AWESOME class (I've been promised a spot by the prof) called Chemistry of Art.

French, huh? I once got grouped by a French guy on a subway in Paris and I shouted "go away" (or something like it) in French, but that's about the extent of my knowledge in that area. There is a really cool modern art museum there called the Pompidou. It's neato. The structure itself is awesome. I suggest a visit if you get a chance. I'd go back, but I'd rather wait until I knew some French and maybe could speak with a less pronounced American accent... I am from Kansas after all. :-P

I'm really enjoying Atlas Shrugged, but it definitely is long. I'm only about a quarter into it though. Marathon reading, right? :-P I've only read a little bit of Hemingway (Old Man and the Sea [...yay highschool lit], Farewell to Arms, and some short stories though Hills Like White Elephants is the only one I distinctly remember). I did a lot of research about Martha Gellhorn (one of his wives) who was a war correspondent. Super interesting. You might consider looking at The Quiet American by Graham Greene or The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien.

Textbooks though? Boo. I read too much of those. I have around $5 worth of printing to read for tomorrow. Ugggggh. I like to read and I really like to learn, but I hate trying to slog through a veritable TON of reading in a short period of time. It takes the fun out of learning it.

What classes are you taking? Other than creative writing ones, I mean. :-)
