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.

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.

Thanks for your comment on my review of Utena!

I agree with basically everything you said, especially the entire shoujo-ai thing. Most Utena fans I've talked to promote the show as a shoujo-ai which I think is misleading. Sure, there's lots of that going on as well, but the entire show dealt with SO many different topics that choosing one of them and emphasizing it like that doesn't really work. Ikuhara has more or less confirmed that Anthy and Utena do love each other (which is made even more clear in the movie) but that is just a tiny piece of the story that covers a really broad range of themes.

I never skipped the stock footage either (because it's awesome!) and I'm also one of the few persons who didn't mind the filler episodes that much.

Ooooh all this talk of Utena is making me excited for a re-watch! Do you have a favourite character? Mine is probably Juri - she's just perfectly imperfect! :)
