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").

Thank you very much.

I am grateful for the advice, and the critiques. I understand what you mean regarding the vague assurances of qualtiy, and i will work on that aspect of my writing. I will continue to read and analyse my favorite review authors in order to perfect my reviews. thank you again for reviewing my entry. Although i do have some college experience i will admit that my writing education is lacking. i will get better, and i will apply again once i feel my skill has risen a notch or two.

Hello patches, i read on your profile, and was relieved to see information on posting an official review. could you possibly take a look at my review of Steins;gate and see how you like it? I noticed that no one has posted an official review yet. If it's not up to par, that's fine. but i would like some input on what you thought, or on any additions you find necessary. If you could do that, i would be very, very grateful. When you said to post two reviews, i was unsure of what you meant. having at least two reviews under your belt, or having two copies of your review present. If it's in reference to copies of the same review, i will gladly see if i can do that. If not. I do have more than two reviews under my belt. I'm not quite sure what SITE FORMAT means. But i assumed it was using the ratings system. Thank you for your time. please let me know what you think

No, I totally agree with your assessment of the Aoi Hana anime; it is quite inferior to the original in most ways. Thanks for the tip on Wandering Son, it looks like I have yet one more series to add to my ungodly huge and ever-growing wishlist. ^o^
