I've never quite been able to give up anime because it's a great way to keep the child in me alive. The child in me happens to be Sakura Kinomoto; the adult in me is turning day by day into Eva Heinemann. So you see the need.
My anime time includes writing reviews for Anime UK News and co-presenting what is arguably the UK's best anime podcast, Nakama Britannica. The latest episode is a review of FLAG, Ryousuke Takahashi's strange and unique war series. As for my tastes, I can forgive most flaws if a show offers well-crafted characters, and I sometimes watch shows just because nobody else has. Lastly, if you're looking for something fun to do, why not join in the awesome forum club, Find Your Anime Buddy! Go on… you know you want to.
