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...

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").

I knew you'd give in ;)

You should post a review in the review section of the forum (http://www.anime-planet.com/forum/anime-reviews/). There's a list to show which series already have threads, and it links to all of them. If your series is on the list, you post your review in the thread. If it's not, you just make a new thread.

I'm not sure what you mean by "framework". If you're referring to the procedure, then, well... I guess I just covered that =). If you're referring to the format of the review, then just take a gander at any site review. You'll see they're all laid out into sections, and you ought to structure yours the same way (My first review was nothing more than a glorified stream-of-consciousness rant, and I had to put a bit of work into fitting it into the standard review format)

In any case, I'd love to read what you made of Muteki Kanban Musume. I've got a half-finished review of it stowed away on my harddrive somewhere, but it's been too long for me to go back and finish it =/.

Oh, and don't worry about the lack of scathing reviews. You wouldn't be the only reviewer who drops bad stuff. However, I would recommedn sticking with a bad series if it's short. Just because there's a lot of cathartic joy to be had in lambasting something that you weren't very fond of.

Best of luck :)

A lot of the Wallflower manga is similar to the anime. As far as I've read, the character hasn't changed too much. Although, she may be more aware of her feelings for a certain someone, and he may be more aware of his feelings towards her :)

Thanks very much for the response and please feel free to take your time, if that's how you feel most comfortable. I personally started reviewing at about 30-40 series watched, but that's pretty unusual, and I still sometimes have trouble rating the animation and the sound. It's something to do with the fact that I feel I could write a better story or better characters, but I'm no artist or composer, so it feels strange criticising work that's way out of my league.

As a side note, I did read some of your work for otakuberries this morning and I've got no doubt that you're good enough to be welcomed in as a reviewer with open arms. However, I'm aware flattery will get me nowhere, and no-one likes to be pressurised, so I'll revert to what I said before. Take your time and whenever you feel like it.

Nice chatting to you

Yeah, Eureka Seven was really wierd like that. The bigest wtf moment for me (don't know if you got that far) was when things were going really slowly, and then suddenly the Children of the Corn show up and infest the planet with flying eyeballs. Yeah...

Random question, but have you ever thought about reviewing? I haven't a lot to go on (just a couple of posts and a bio =/) but you seem like an intelligent person and a decent writer. If you are interested, feel free to message me, we're looking for new souls at the moment. If you're not... well, that's cool too :).

Take care
