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. I'm a self-proclaimed all around good guy :D
"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.
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 :)
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. >:]
