ThePatches is chii*

Greetings, Anime-Planet denizens. I am one of the site reviewers and character moderators here on the site. So, if you're looking for opinion, look somewhere else: I am always right... Ok, I kid.

I came to anime years ago in a friend's basement and have had a strange obsession with the twisted artform ever since. In the wake of my first conventions at a very advanced age for that kind of thing (26), my real fandom started to take shape and I eventually found my way here. Since Bubblegum Crisis and Dragonball Z, my tastes have gravitated more towards high school and comedy anime, as I generally like to laugh, but I also love sci-fi and fantasy stuff, so yeah...

Some Site Stuff

We are always looking for more site reviewers and character moderators, so please, show off. Character moderation is possible for anyone who can consistently follow the rules set in the Submission Guidelines and loves the site.

Site reviewership on the other hand has a higher bar. The 'Reviewer Drive' thread has lapsed into disuse, as the person in charge of it can no longer fill that role, but it doesn't mean that we're not interested. Write two reviews in SITE FORMAT in your 'User Reviews' section and direct me to look at them. Fair warning: We are looking for someone with a college-level facility with the English language and good analytical skills. Our reviews are one of the best features about Anime-Planet, so we're interested in maintaing their quality. BUT, if you think you're up to the challenge, don't hesitate to take it on.

Note about Ratings

I use my AP star ratings to measure my enjoyment, unlike my official reviews that reflect a (hopefully) more objective assessment. For example, I love K-On! 5/5 Stars, but I generally concur with Sheex's 7.2/10 review.

*ThePatches is a certified source of chii, but not equivalent to a daily serving.

MY AVATAR IS AWESOME!

You should check out CubeWatermelon's site, Kiwi Blitz. It's keen (and her art is "tight").

The art style looks fairly similar and the plot seems kind of similar to Code Geass too. Guy has a family tragedy and he gets a mysterious power... But it seems that they don't look as much like noodle people like in a lot of CLAMP's other stuff.

Your review was really helpful, by the way. :)

Hey ThePatches,

Sorry If I confused you, but what I meant to say was that I was really looking forward to hearing some nice soundtracks by Megumi the moment I saw her in the list of casts. It kinds sucks I didn't get to hear something awesome since I loved some of the songs she did in Macross F series/movies. I agree though, I guess there's a limit to how much VA's can give to the viewers; Like you mentioned, I loved Yui Horie's role as Minori from Toradora (and the second OP she sang, though I can't remember the name off the top of my head), but couldn't like some of the shallow characters she plays (Negima, Zero no Tsukaima and what not). 

Thanks for the reply btw :)

Yeah...I enjoyed it until the end but that's just me turning my brain off, I went in expecting nothing and got what I expected. Still something good to watch if you just want beautiful visuals and nice fights and don't care about anything else.
