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.

Yah, it has been cold--reminds me of when I lived on the east coast. Over the quarter I've been keeping up with Kimi ni Todoke, Nyan Koi, and Darker than Black: Ryuusei no Gemini; now that my finals have ended, I've been hitting up some dramas (Orange Days, Iljimae, Seventh Day), but I do have a mile-long list of things to finish/catch up in over break. >.< I was also looking at the list of anime airing this winter, and nothing really caught my eye except the latest season of Nodame Cantabile.

I really enjoyed Spice and Wolf, both seasons. I like that although Horo is an "ears character," she has a deeper and more complex personality than is usually given to that sort of character. What did you think of it?

I-84?? I thought you were in Seattle?  Is home somewhere else?  Well, south somewhere evidently, but that seems like a long drive.  You're at the U, aren't you?

I have to fly back to my parents' house. :-( My car is rear wheel drive and has absolutely no hope of making through Snoqualmie Pass (I'm coming from Walla Walla and arriving on the East Side).

One of my housemates is a psych major... She's more interested in learning development/babies thankfully so I don't get examined too frequently.  It's a good thing, too, or she might find my dark side.

Darker tastes? I have a dark side? Well, I guess just don't tell anybody...

I just watched Junjou Romantica (1 & 2) and Skip Beat.  (Finals are coming. I have to spend a lot of time avoiding work now.)  I'm not sure I would recommend Junjou Romantica (I had an issue with one of the couples... one of the partners would say 'no' all of the time and was ignored every single time... sort of bothered me).  It was entertaining while I was watching it, but I haven't thought about it since I finished the last episode.  Skip Beat was fun and I'm looking forward to the rest of it to come out!  Currently, only the first session has been made.

I signed up for a free two week trial of RentAnime.com (netflix but for anime) and I supposedly had Berserk sent to me, but it's been a week and it still hasn't arrived. :-/ Not planning on continuing with that service...
