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").

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
