My real name is Willow. At sixteen years of age, I am an avid watcher of classic Shounen anime. My preferred genres include fantasy and adventure, but as long as a sufficiant plot and well developed characters are present, I can enjoy basically any sect. I attend nearby conventions regularly. My two favourite anime are Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto and Yoshiro Togashi's Hunter X Hunter. I suppose you could say that I'm drawn to mainstream anime, but that fact is simply because I have a lot of free time, and mainstream series generally have higher episode counts. I tend to grow solomn at the conclusion of an excellant anime, like many others also do. As a completely ramdon sidenote, I am currently learning how to speak Japanese, and am an aspiring novelist.

My Rating System For Reviews

10 = Absolute and utter masterpiece (It will never happen)

9 = Masterpiece with minor flaws

7 - 8 = Above average/highly recommendable series

5 - 6 = Average

2 - 4 = Poor

1 = Absolutely horrid

I may use these terms in my reviews...

Plot story = A story that focuses on the plot or the setting more than the characters. Basically, in a plot story, the characters are simply tools with which to tell the story. More than often, plot stories feel rushed and stressed, but every now and then comes a plot-story that doesn’t include these elements. Two examples of plot stories are J.R.R Tolkien’s, The Lord of the Rings and Tite Kubo’s Bleach

Character story = A story that focuses on the characters more than the plot. Basically, in a character story, the plot is interwoven with the character’s developments (usually the main protagonist’s or main antagonist’s). Two examples of character stories include Natsuki Takaya’s Fruits Basket and Yoshiro Togashi’s Hunter X Hunter.

Now, not all series’ fit into these two categories. There are some that manage to fill both, and deliver fairly equal amounts of plot and character development. This variety of story contributes to my favorite genre, and includes series’ like One Piece, Rurouni Kenshin, Harry Potter, and Naruto.

Rewatched 2 LOOONG animes and played 2 LOONG games backwards? Sounds somewhat boring. Meh, maybe that's just me :L

Tomorrow I'm probably just gonna see this movie thats about to come out. I guess you already knew I'm not a fan of anime con's xD

But yeah, have fun, I guess.

That's what I meant by "reasons" ;)

You?

I know! She does such a great job at voice acting, but I'm sure she's very busy and active since she does a lot of roles and is extremely popular. I know she's going to some con somewhere in the U.S sometime soon too. Hmm... that's so hard to say, I loved the majority of the characters. I'd say Killua, Hisoka, and Gon would be my top three in no order. I lovelovelove the relationship between Killua and Gon. ^_^ I always look for a strong bond between characters in anime and theirs is just so amazing to me.

Yeah, although I don't mind a remake, I feel like it would make more sense to continue on with the series instead. I'm a little saddened that the old voice actors won't be returning but oh well, I'm still excited. I'm surprised that they brought in a completely new VA for the role of Gon... not too sure about that.

I loved the OVAs too. I'm thinking of picking up the manga sometime soon since I want to continue with the HxH story but I haven't gotten around to that yet.
