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").

XD indeed it does. I'd have to say my number one anime is either Elfen Lied, Shuffle!, or Vandread. They are all great animes and hard to pick a number one ^^

Well my handle over there is the same as the one here: RingoStarr1991. I am in the process of rewriting a manga review for MxO and Mahoraba. When I originally came by this site I was astonished at how little appreciation the manga had so I quickly jotted something down just so people would know what they are getting into before they invest some time. The whole reason I want to be an "official" reviewer is because everyone reads those reviews first and you guys have this overwhelming influence when it comes to your thoughts. I don't want someone to be turned off of something like the 8th Pokemon movie just because someone gave it a 1/10 and wrote a sentence about it. I will message you on the forums when I am done with one of the reviews so you can look over them.

Really like them; I have a couple reviews up at the moment but they are not fully finished. I am going to finish them all up (as well as review some of the pokemon movies as those reviews are limited to people giving them a 1/10 with no data) so when you get the chance sometime next week check out my reviews? Really enjoy this site. I am really interested in reviewing manga as the ones I have read have not been reviewed by anyone.
