As my college professional career swiftly progresses approaches, so too does my appreciation for anime grow. As such, I like to share my opinions about anime with people whenever I get the chance. I guess I'm an intellectual of sorts, so I really love discussing this stuff in detail. But you don't have to think of me as just the resident Ivy Leaguer (we're not as uptight as you think) ;). In addition to watching anime, I'm also a huge football fan and <was> an avid 360 gamer (Dishonored = Game of the Year last great game I played lol). I also regularly listen to Japanese music. Not just anime songs, I regularly keep track of the weekly Oricon charts.

I like(d) writing reviews in addition to discussing specific anime (both completed and ongoing). My review schedule is totally erradic now nonexistant, so but I'll try to keep a going log here on my Prof. I mostly watch the newest ongoing stuff nowadays, but I like to watch a completed series here and there (when I'm bored and don't want to get work done). I could really use some recs in 13 ep or less range. Actually probably just movies and OVAs are all I can manage now -_-.

So give me a shout out some time! :D Leave a profile comment, don't be shy I like talking to new people on the site :). And I'm always willing to discuss the latest series ;).

Recent Reviews: (New reviews coming <no time> soon!!)

Gargantia review is UP (NEW!!!)

Sakurasou review is UP

My new review rating system now basically mirrors my star ratings, but on a 10 scale and w/ a half point buffer to compensate. But considering I haven't written reviews in forever, my actual star ratings are far more important. I use pretty much a tiering system with my star ratings, each tier representing what I feel to be series of similar quality. Of course, the 4.5 and 5 tiers represent shows I really loved (the elite series) and the 4 tier would be the best of the rest (and that's no slight). I'm also constantly reassessing my star ratings to maintain consistency.

I now have an established history of recording what I'm watching ( /have watched) with Lists. Note that the lists are ranked, and the ongoing list I try to update weekly. As I try to emphasize, I only include series which I've watched ( /am watching), so if it's not there, I didn't watch it, so don't complain about it <please -_->. Note that I classify series by when they finish, not when they start. Ergo, for example, you'll notice I've labeled Steins;Gate as a Summer anime although it did in fact premier in the Spring. I've recently decided to make an exception with the 22 ep noitaminA series, which I will list under both seasons over which it aired. Of course, for the premiering season, the ranking accounts only for the events of the first half of the series. In case you were wondering this was because of Guilty Crown lol. And just like my ratings, Lists are to be considered fluid. I'm a firm believer in judging longevity almost as much as the immediate impression upon completion.

I finally made up a top 10 anime list! I just haven't posted it on the site yet... And it's been a while so who knows if it's accurate.. Yeah, not much of an announcement -_-.

Guess what... I posted it now ;).

It seems that Lists don't show on your main page anymore so please click on the tab at the top of the page and take a look. You can get a good feel for the kinda stuff I like. Now there's even character lists! And I just updated, hooray!!!

I do welcome recommendations, but in all honesty unless it's something ongoing or in a coming season, I probably won't get the chance to watch it right away (or anytime soon lol).

Lastly, I keep an open door policy, I'm not one for forums and such but I am regularly available on both gchat and skype now ^_^.

~ ~ Peace ~ ~

Never my fanart by the way, I have no artistic ability.

But if anyone wants to show off their art or just something they found,
I'd be more than happy to take a look :). Music too for that matter ^_^.

You'll notice my avas and sigs always come from ongoing series (at least they used to).

ava = ClariS (cause they found a new member! :D)
sig = Onodera + Kirisaki f/ Nisekoi (not that you can see it anymore...)
header = Super Peace Busters f/ AnoHana (1000 x 300 everyone for the header photos)

Yay! :D

Hm, I'm not that sure about it yet, but at the moment I tend to journalism. But who knows if that will change soon. ^^

Well, one question that has to be asked would of course be: What's you favourite anime? :D

Is it AnoHana (because of your header photo)? I like that show. ^_^

And don't worry, I like *hugs* too! :)

Okay then, even though I'm pretty bad at stuff like this:

I'm 16 (as you can see) and I currently attend highschool (and will hopefully graduate next year! ^^").

I love to chill and my perfect weekend would be relaxing and watching anime - I'm not really the party-kind of person!

But I also love shopping and going in the city in my spare time like many people my age. ^^

Concerning anime, I started to get into it about seven, almost eight years ago thanks to my best friend (she used to love anime and manga, but now she's more into western style comics and cartoons) - and I'm really glad she showed it to me! I really love anime, especially drama-, historical-, romance- and sports-related series!

Now it's your turn! :)

Well yeah, she was. A bit. But that haughty and tsundere attitude is what makes her a good match for Maki ufufufu

Yuri bears' remind me so much of Bakemonogatari. Just. Without black screens. Wonder what would have happened if Shaft did Yuri bears. Their Koufuku Graffiti this season has a moe shoujo-ai feel to it and every episode was satisfying. I get hungry whenever I watch it. If only I could cook like that....

Hmm...I've been taking cooking classes every Saturday. It really necessary to at least know how to cook for yourself (= ω =)

EH!?!?!?! You're kidding me, right? That's....SHOCK! KUMA SHOCK!!

Yeah. It's such a FAIL. I ruined Maki's lovely appearance and I know she's going to get mad at me. Definitely. orz

No. That series just has a lot of symbolism and a plot that only "yuri geniuses" will ever understand.

Same here~ It's been boring to not have anyone to talk to about anime stuff.

Btw, I plan to make a fanart of Nico on White Day next. Wish me luck (> ω <)/
