I was going to put some chibi gif.'s here, but who needs that when you can have a wall of egotistical text !?!
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.
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 shouldn't be separated 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, for art's sake!). After that would be script writing and character 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 to only be written by japanese accounts, it can still teach us of our past and our human nature.
Hobbies: Piano/Keyboard (Jazz and lowgrade Classical), Cycling (living near city/mountains/sea is an oportunity not missed), Roleplay (Dungeons & Dragons and Dark Heresy), Reading (only read for 5% of my spare time but love it none the less), Absorbing all human knowledge.
