Have absolutely fallen in love with anime this last year. Spent the majority of my life judging it, thought that only weirdos liked it... then I tried it... A guy in my College Dorm at University of Oregon was watching Fullmetal Alchemist in his room when I walked in. I immediately proceeded to giving him shit about watching anime, and he turned to me and said, "How are you going to walk into my room and tell me what's acceptable? What's wrong with people being able to just enjoy things in life?"
That is where my view changed, not just on anime, but on the world itself. I'm not gonna go into my worldview, if u wanna know, ur free to ask me. I will, however, go into this. I was 100% wrong and I'm sorry for everyone I had judged, I am now one of you. I decided to try Fullmetal Alchemist when i had gotten home for Summer Vacation. I had finished the series in 3 days... my interest in Anime spread like a virus from there.
Now I can't get enough of it, my favorites are those that have really good, deep stories and character development. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is by far my favorite, like head and shoulders above the rest. Part of that is because it was the series that awakened this beast inside of me, the other part is that its just that damn good. After that I have to go with Fate/Stay Night and Utawarerumono. Two shows that fell in love with and watched pretty much in one sitting. Then comes Elfen Lied... or what I like to call, the litmus test for a person's soul. I found it to be extremely angelic underneath all the nudity and gore. The message at its heart was truly beautiful.
Really stoked that I found this website because it has helped me grow my tastes exponentially, I hope to meet lots of new cool people who i can relate to, and hopefully can make up some of the things I said in the past. Cya around everybody XD
0.5 - One of the worst pieces of crap I've ever seen
1.0 - Terrible
1.5 - Bad
2.0 - Below Average
2.5 - Average
3.0 - Above Average
3.5 - Good
4.0 - Great
4.5 - Amazing
5.0 - Absolutely Perfect (I mean PERFECT!!!!!)
I'm a tad harsh with my ratings, but I like it that way. If u see something on my list that you're interested and you see it only has 3 stars... Its still a fun thing to watch so don't be scared of trying it out. Also don't get mad @ my ratings because something that you believe should be 5 stars isnt 5 stars. When I say 5 stars is Absolutely Perfect... I mean it Any little thing wrong... I mean ANYTHING... and it gets bumped down to a 4.5 automatically, this does not mean that I am not fully in love with the show.
