Hey there!  My name is Ryan but I usually go by Skip or Skippy :> Like everyone else here I'm a big fan of anime and I love video games.  I've been playing MMO's since I was a wee lad. Whether its watching anime, reading a book or playing a video game I'm always critiquing it my head, such as, "I wonder what made them go with this over that?". I'm very interested and invested in the world around me and there's nothing I love more than beautiful artwork in all of its shapes and sizes :D


My Reviews

"Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae." -Kurt Vonnegut

This is pretty much my motto when writing reviews.  I try not to let my reviews turn into rants and I certainly try not to build a superiority complex while writing.  Oddly enough I usually enjoy the "bad" anime anyways.  Sometimes I just like good old fashioned mindless fun.

Star Ratings

The ratings I give animes on my watched list may differ from the score on my reviews.  This is because I try to give credit where credit is due, even if I didn't personally enjoy it for some reason.  Sometimes I'll give a bad review to an anime that I enjoyed.  Numbers are just technicalities.  The tone of my reviews generally reflect how I truly feel about them.  Read my review before getting snippy on my score :)

★☆☆☆☆: Torture

★★☆☆☆: Bad

★★★☆☆: Average

★★★★☆: Great

★★★★★: Incredible!

Your Criticism

I want my name to be equated with high quality and helpful reviews.  I encourage comments on my reviews.  I put a lot of time and thought into what I write so naturally I'd like to know your thoughts!  And feel free to critique! Seriously, if you ever read anything I write and it comes off like a ten year-old wrote it, let me know.  Even minor things that can improve flow and consistency are welcome.  Oh, and by the way, I love debates.  If you disagree with one of my reviews or opinions, send me a message explaining why.  I'll take it as an early "Thank You," before I totally turn over your world. >:]

Well, I just got to the first episode with him, but I like this Charles dude in Eureka 7. I don't want to say he is my favorite character yet, because they have yet to put all the flaws on him yet, but I am liking him more than the majority of the Gekko state people. I think him, Jobs the bald engineer, and either Holand or Eureka are my three favorites thus far.

I am still only around episode ten, but I have seen episodes of it before watching it now. I like him alright, but not really too much, but I wish MoonDoggy had more speaking lines, not that I like his voice or his input of opinion, but I like how when he talks it reminds me of my cousin Dallas.

Holland is my favorite thus far, I would like Talho, but she has her touchy moments more often than I would like from a personality like hers, so she isn't in my top three or anything but I like her, I like the bald engineer, even if he is rarely seen. Eureka I like better than Renton, but even though she hasn't become much of a character yet, I think I am going to like the pink haired chick.

Ah I see, he is really well dressed to be just an engineer.He may be bald, but he is a bald man with style.

So who are your favorite characters in it?
