I'm a person interested in almost everything this life has to offer. Some of those things are art, music, good stories and oriental culture. The reason why I like anime is because it combines them. Simple as that.

In general, I'm more or less open to all genres. The only two things that make the difference are the execution of a particular show and whether an anime is a silly cliche or an original work of art provoking thoughts & emotions. Also, love hunting for old-school & obscure stuff, and my ratings are quite approximate (but I hope to sort them out someday).

Last but not the least, you're welcome to read my reviews, and don't hesitate to comment.

Giving 1/5 after one episode is a bit extreme, isn't it? I mean as an introduction episode the first one was one of the more interesting ones out there.

Also I finished a rewatch of EP and I have to say that it is even better than the first time. Another thing, which other works did the director of EP work on?

True that, Tatami Galaxy is very easy to like. You do have a point, it is hard to understand. Wouldn't be as interesting if it were simpler :)  But honestly I haven't met a lot of people who liked GITS and NGE and disliked EP, they are usually liked by the same people.

I've read your EP review and it's much better than the one I did. Much more attention to details and more work and effort put into it. 

As far as criticism of EP goes I believe it's due to the fact that it doesn't have any 'fun' elements. It doesn't have tits and asses, it doesn't have big explosions, it isn't direct and requires much more attention than well every anime I've seen outside Lain and GITS (movie). It's just the nature of the medium, it isn't as serious as books and it tried to be like one. Of course I loved it because it took itself seriously and had a lot of dignity to itself, even great works such as NGE had to resort to sexualisation of characters.

Why am I always drawn to the weirdly confusing yet engrossing mind-screws? I swear, it's a really weird habit that I probably need to get out of ^^; But I'll definately be looking at that one! I've heard a lot of people compare it cat soup and you know how I felt about that so there's a high chance I'll enjoy it ^^ 

That is, when I've motivated myself to get off my lazy butt and write some halfway decent reviews... Honestly, reviewing is something I love doing but I'm always just stcuk for how to start some of them. Thankfully, I managed to get the cat soup one done halfway decently even if it was confusing as hell how I wrote it. Thanks for all the awesome recommendations by the way, I'm really enjoying mononoke so far! Some parts of it remind a me a bit of paranoia agent, except with an even more surrealist edge. ^^

Thanks for the recommendations! :D I'll be sure to check them out, the second one looks especially interesting... maybe just because I'm a massive sucker for animation that's strange or does something different. I can't help it, I'm a total animation geek.

And thanks for the reply! It was a pleasant surprise and now you've given me two new animes to add to my watch list for this summer... along with trying to motivate myself to finish evangelion and bebop. Yes, I'm one of the few anime fans who haven't watched those series yet. I keep trying to motivate myself but I can have the attention span of a pencil when I want to xD.
