I'm more of a glasses man myself.

Before you read any of the below, I'd like to remind you that we all have differing opinions, perceive different anime with varying mindsets, and therefore may disagree as to how to evaluate certain anime. This applies to manga and light novels as well. Also, ponies.

If you're reading this, you either A) clicked it by accident and will close the tab now or B) are interested in my anime preferences.

Personally, I'm a Civil Engineer in New York. I spend most of my time these days playing video games and bugging my friends by saying "no I haven't watched the latest episode of [fill in the anime here]" while playing said games.

I'll watch pretty much any anime as long as I find it interesting. My favorite genres are varied, but I tend to enjoy high drama (a.k.a. melodrama or forced drama) more than anything else. There are some genres from which I tend to stay away, in particular the so-called "ecchi" genre. When attempting to judge an anime "objectively" (I will contend that this is impossible) there is one standard that I hold above all others, and it isn't a category you will find in site reviews. An anime's ability to affect the emotions of the viewer directly impacts the overall quality. If there is no emotional response, then the flashing images, sound, story, and even the characters mean nothing.

Generally my reviews follow the same criteria, just converted to a 10 point scale.

I hate Imocho with a passion, partly because it looked good in the beginning. Then it disappointed me, and I am not one for disappointments. Plus, the fan service got int he way of the story, and that always ticks me off when people attempt to curb to horny fans by ruining a story with over the top sexual themes. But hey, to make a cake you have to break some eggs.

I guess. I don't know you that well, but I look forward to finding out.

I guess everyone does have different opinions, even about whether or not to express our opinions. I mean, i've always just taken a look at reviews as the analysis of writing, the story telling of the anime, and the presentation. So long as it tells the story well and without anything squelchy, I'll watch it. However, if it doesn't, then I'll give it a bad review.

No problem. I always attempt to do a little background on my reviews and such. Yuki Kajiura is an amazing composer, after all.

I loved the Fruits Basket manga! I read it online though and I only add manga series that I've read in book form to my list (I'm just weird like that XD)
