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").

Hola Patches! Looks like you've settled in quite nicely here. Much more than I have!

I dunno why you would bother with pretty cure unless you have a magical girl fetish that sailor moon can't fill ;)

hi there again, now im done with HnG exam arc, It was a bit boring, though the mini arc in between when they went to those go salons was cool.

just a question, what happens in the final eps? i mean not spoil anything specific, does sai learn the hand of god, or do we just follow hikaru around in the pro world and then it suddenly ends on ep 75 etc?

You'll pay darn it.

And heh, yeah, some of the stuff that's purposefully stupid I'll let slide. It's just that one really irked me for some reason "Oh you're so ace Yui, even though you're a complete waste of oxygen"

Ha, thanks. I was just paraphrasing part of an essay. It was actually more about Ghost in the Shell (which also hadn't impressed me at first) - sort of convinced me that post-modernism wasn't just gibberish. The Paprika soundtrack is awesome though. Actually Kon has been my favourite anime director since Perfect Blue.
