I now have a blog (took me forever to sit down and actually create one). Come on by to see my thoughts on some anime I am currently watching as well as some of my reviews from this site!

Also if it's not too much to ask for, please visit my bandcamp page. I pretty much put all my free time (other than posting on my blog) into making music so just you listening to a song would be awesome.

Hello! I am the essence of awesome. I write and record music in my spare time which you can view here and also review game related stuff over at 1up. I also (if you cannot tell by my membership here) enjoy many forms of Japan's culture such as anime and manga. I will make sure to give reviews to some anime/manga that need to be talked about. Also, I am always up for a convo about pretty much anything so shoot me a comment sometime and if you know of any great romance/slice of life/ school life anime/manga please let me know! I hope that my reviews will help you find a great work of art to read/watch!

Rating Scale:

(0.0-3.9/10) Poop

(4.0-4.9/10) Poor

(5.0-5.9/10) Passable

(6.0-6.9/10) Average

(7.0-7.9/10) Good

(8.0-8.4/10) Great

(8.5-9.4/10) Amazing

(9.5-9.9/10) Unfathomable/He could go all the way

(10/10) Masterpiece

(I do average the four components together in order to reach an overall score. This will make it near impossible for me to review something with a total score of 10/10 but a man can dream.)

The amount of stars something receives correlates only to how much I enjoyed the show. For an anime that keeps me interested from start to finsh will receive something like 3/5. If it keeps me interested and has a very likable cast, it receives a 4/5. If the anime has the complete package of what I like, it receives 5/5. Something that I gave 5*'s to might get a 8/10 or less if I think some tech area was lacking. I review anime/manga on a non-biased mindset so that you get a good picture of what you are getting yourself into.

Good job on the review and I was able to learn through you writing your own opinion so thank you for that.

As for why I like characters like Accelerator well in his case he actually does go through a huge redemption path and while he killed a lot of the sisters early in the series he ends up being even more protective of them than Misaka is and he wanted power to be left alone at first...However that isn't really what he wanted or needed as he needed someone to provide him with company that wasn't some moron trying to fight him or use him but someone he could chat to as a friend and Last order and the sisters eventually do this for him.

However I like characters in general to how well they fit into their role there are a couple of exceptions where the character just annoys me too much like Shu Ouma, Natsu Dragneel and Kirito as well as Asuna I won't get into a debate about why I think they are bad but they all have traits in their character I can't relate to and I feel detract from the story. Shu Ouma especially and out of all characters from every kind of entertainment medium I have never come across a main character who annoyed me so much. He had no traits that could define him as someone relatable because he was so selfish and misguided. He didn't really fit into the war either and only cared for his crush despite so many lives becoming dependent on him.

Basically I will like character like Akainu, Squeeler and King Bradley as I feel despite these 3 examples being pretty despicable and horrible individuals they fit in well with the story. They have good motivations and the reasoning behind their actions you can relate to even if you don't agree with them. They also are a challenge to the main cast who try to prevent their wicked ways meaning their is a sense of intrigue, progress and challenge these are key elements to making a story to capture your attention. A villain that posessing no challenge to the main cast is just a bore and you can't help but think he/she wasn't much of a threat anyway so what have the protagonist and friends actually achieved during the course of this show?

Accelerator while playing the role of the villain meant I disliked him and his actions personally but the role he played was well done meaning the character he represents is well done and easy to like but as an individual and a fellow human being during the sister's arc I despised him. Hopefully my really long explanation makes sense and sorry for rambling on so long about it.

I hope you do get around to reviewing it as I am not the most popular person on the site due to my strict views on what is good and what isn't. All animes need as much diversity in opinions as possible and your reviews are well constructed as I can tell from my quick browse and easy to read. My own are just rants that arn't always easy to read as sometimes it is just big blocks of words. However it is important I feel to put down the feelings you have felt when you have watched the anime even if it doesn't come off well. Yahari impacted on me in a good way and it is something I have felt has been missing from the anime industry for a while now.

I look forward to seeing what you have to write myself as already Linksword has offered a better constructed review than my own which just goes to show I have much more to learn. Most importantly I hope you do post a review so I can learn something from it that I didn't see myself so thank you a lot for your kind words and i hope you have the time to write one of your own.

I know you weren't trying to be rude :) I didn't take it that way, I just needed to update the review anyway, and you helped me put more thought into it.

Yeah, I agree with you now that i think about it, it was way too overdramatic in places expecially when the Main guy gets his videogame rejected. I'll update the rating.
