First of all, why am I here?  Why I like Lists. I tend to have a habit of making lists.  Lists, lists and more lists while procrastinating in my spare time.  Also being nosy and seeing my life go by so Anime Planet was the perfect place.

I first got into anime (putting Pokemon aside) when I was 15.  Before all that a friend tried getting me into anime, but it didn't catch my attention. I properly found anime after watching a movie countdown list on the British channel E4 when I was 14. Seeing one movie on the list that caught my attention titled Princess Mononoke, since I was into Chinese mythology at the time and thinking it was Chinese I made a mental note of it.

When I was 16, friends introduced me to the tv channel dedicated to anime.  On it, I found my 2 favorite anime series, which was Cowboy Bebop and Ghost In The Shell. Also, after watching them I found my favorite  composer, Yoko Kanno. Also picking up is loved for Jazz and classical music instead of just Metal. Probably also why I took up Jazz and Classical Piano up to this day. 

Moving on...  I do like to give referencess to other medias on my reviews or just recomending word of mouth, since I feel anime can be a standars media/art form and shouldint be sepperared from others such as books.

 On anime being individual I would rate things rather oddly.  What appeals most to me is music and background animation (aesthetics). After that would be script writing and charector development followed by story and so on. Shows that make you think like Evangelion, Lain or Paranoia Agent.  Anime is an art forum like others.  Although it is restricted from Japanese accounts it can still teach us of our past and our human nature.

hey! thanks a lot! :)

and it's hard to find anime like rose of versailles since theres nothing quite like it. ;_; but i would perhaps recommend oniisama e for you. like rose of versailles it's based on a manga by riyoko ikeda. it doesn't have a historical theme but if you enjoyed the gripping melodrama of rose of versailles then perhaps you would enjoy oniisama e, as well!

i also recommend revolutionary girl utena, probably moreso. it's a lot more modern than rose of versailles, but there are a lot similarities in it's themes and characters. most rose of versailles fans that i know are also fans of utena. ^^

It's awesome to find out someone else read that criminally underrated series! Shouldn't have been cancelled but what was there had me sold completely and got me into his music. Still remember when he played at the bar for the first real time, could see the music pour from the pages.

I meant your anime list is good, but you should make a list on anime that should get more hype on this website and anime that actually had a powerful (or deep) ending that made the show better overall. (:

I'm kinda biased, because I'm really into the mecha anime genre for the most part(especially the gundam series), However I enjoyed the series and If your a fan of mecha anime It's worth a watch.

And to answer your second question, Yes she does And i look forward to every dance
