Hey, there... I'm Speedlion... I'm a Dutch guy, 21 years old and I enjoy watching anime and finding the better ones between the pile of bad ones. And sometimes, I find a gem and I'll be very delighted.

I'm a list person, but I prefer making lists elsewhere. 

- An up-to-date "top 100 anime and manga".

- A slightly out-of-date "top 200 anime and manga characters".

Order of the lists is based solely on my own enjoyment of the series/characters and is not an indication of what I think is the best in each respective list. They are favourites.

I understand the pain and struggle of trying to manage the On Hold list. Occasionally I will take a break from "normal" anime watching and marathon a couple of my On Holds just to cut down the number. Sometimes I'm pleasently surprised by one and end up wondering why I stalled it in the first place.

Katanagatari was written by the same guy who wrote the Monogatari franchise, so they have a vaguely familiar style to them. However, Katanagatari has next to zero fanservice, a more concise story and, in my opinion, a better script. It also has zero connection to the Monogatari franchise.

I've never tried Detective Conan... But I loved all the original Sherlock Holmes stories, so it's been on my plant to watch list for a while. Hopefully I get to it eventually. 

My first anime was Bleach. No regrets, it was a great intro anime. I've even rewatched it a couple times for the nostalgia, even though the presentation is cheesy and the animation is...terrible. 

Gems, of course, mean different things to different people. For example, I consider Kokoro Connect a gem because it was way better than I originally thought it would be, it has some of the best character development I've seen in a series that doesn't even have two cours, and no one talks about it. Similarly, Katanagatari is pretty fantastic all around, but it similarly under the radar. On a different note, we have Teekyu, which despite being stupid and short and low quality is so endearingly creative and hilarious that I laugh through every second. 

Unfortunately I'm pretty behind on recent anime, due to work and all that time-consuming grownup stuff, so I haven't touched the majority of the anime this season. The only one I'm following at the moment is Teekyu 7, because not doing so would be a crime and because it's really easy to fit a two-minute episode into a lunch break.

How long now... About seven years. The time has really flown. When I look back at what I used to like when I first started watching... Good times. Cringe-worthy a little, but good times.

It's hard to define a gem, I think there are two types. There are anime that are better than you'd think, and there are anime that are more fun than you'd think. Of course, both quality and enjoyability are subjective, so one person's gems might be another person's headache; it's always hard to tell.

Thank you! Years of dedication to a hobby will certainly turn out results <(^_^)>

I do like your opening intro statement about finding the occasional gem, that is very warranted.
