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").

Haha. I will when I actually start watching it. It's on "Eps" at the moment, because I wanted to finish the others before I started something else. At least FMP Second Raid before anything else. Who am I kidding? I'll start it now.

Thanks for the comment!

I can agree with you on that, NMG certainly wasn't as deep as its prequel (being 2 arcs versus 5, this isn't surprising). That's a legitimate criticism - it just didn't bother me personally. My comments about the fanservice were more directed at the community than your review... your critiques made sense, particularly regarding the characters. Nadeko and Suruga really didn't get enough time (though I confess that I quite liked the scene with the former).

Cheers!

It's alright, just a month or so late. :PGlad to hear, I'll give it a spin after FMP, Onegai Teacher, Macross and Clannad. I have a feeling it's going to take a lot of effort to finish those last two. Ergh.But yeah, thanks for getting back to me.

Yeah its weird how drastically different Nisemonogatari is executed compaired to Bakemonogatari; must of been real confusing for a person jumping into Nisemonogatari then going back to watch Bakemonogatari afterwards.
