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. >:]

It's probably better that you did delete it, I understand man. But as for recomendations I would say try your hand out at Outlaw Star, it has some stuff in common with Gurren Lagann and Cowboy Bebop, so if you thought they were good your would probbably like Outlaw Star too, but if you want to slow things down and watch a good anime that takes things slow, Hunter X Hunter is good at that.

I have yet to watch Black cat, I have wanted to watch it, but I never remember to go out and see it.

Alright, I will jot that down to so I can watch it along with Eureka 7.

I haven't been able to watch much of anything the past couple days, family friend is in from out of town, so my time is devoted to that.

I replied to the your comment in my CG Rant. Don't expect tapping on the back from my side. If my style of writing seems aggressive to you, don't worry, it's normal.

I promise to look up your "character analysis", I think I will do that tomorrow.

Haha no i didn't like her either...like at all. I'll agree a lot of the characters they made/gave the oppertunity to become friends with are HIGHLY annoying. To be honest i just ignored them all really xD except i've always liked Sanjuro, Elk, Mistral. Black Rose just got on my nerves because of her cocky attitude. xP Then again despite the fact i am a girl i find myself rarely liking girls in animes/games. They always seem bitchy or stupid, lol ^^ and i added you back.
