Hello!

I am currently a sophomore in college pursuing a B.M. in piano performance, as well as a B.A. in English. It's an interesting life; I have to keep reminding myself of this.  

My first anime love is shoujo, having fed my fantasies for several naive years in high school. Lately, though, I have been drawn towards less commercialized titles dealing with troubled individuals who struggle to find their better selves. I am constantly on the lookout for my next Post-Awesome-Anime Depression (coined by VivisQueen), so please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Ahh, I understand - thanks very much for the kind words, hopefully over the summer it could happen if I actually get around to watching anime in spare time, and so on! I doubt I'd be able to get on the team anyway, all of the reviewers are so fantastic at what they do. Didn't realise it had been a topic of discussion though, that's a tad humbling, to say the least...

Yeah, it seems like we do share similar taste! Always great to see. Ahh, 5cm...such a staggering achievement. I suppose that it can't match in terms of being conventionally 'beautiful', as you say - I think you summed up the difference (and similarity) between the two really well. Regardless, School Rumble is definitely high on the watch list in the near future! I've never played any anime soundtrack songs on piano, but I'm thoroughly intrigued by the 5cm suggestion - many thanks for bringing it up. I'll take a look and see how it turns out!

You're more than welcome, honestly - though I doubt that'll be the case if I ever write reviews for A-P! And now you have me slightly concerned that all the reviewers know something about me that I don't :P  I'll definitely pick it up and give it a spin though, it does sound...well, beautiful. I'll never turn down slice-of-life, least of all something as highly recommended as School Rumble!

I can imagine it must have been quite a shock - I always envisaged that seeing so many fellow pianists of such a high standard in one place would be very odd, especially since typically you usually don't see too many clustered in the same area. Really glad to hear that you're enjoying the entire experience though, great stuff! I'm definitely keeping up with my playing, whilst continuing to branch out into other fields (dabbling in audio engineering with a mind at producing ambient-based works over the few years), but I'll always love piano above all else. And agreed, it is always fantastic to see someone else who's serious about it...best of luck with the course!

I know I wrote this on the review itself, but I really felt the need to visit your profile and say it here too - your School Rumble review is absolutely brilliant, one of the best (if not -the- best) I've ever read. I definitely intend to watch it at some stage! Thanks for writing it, and all of your other reviews too - you have a great writing style and your scoring seems very fair. =)

Incidentally, how's the Freshman year going for you? I was going to enrol on the same course (Bachelor of Music, Piano Performance) but eventually decided against it - how're you finding it?

Thanks again, hope this post finds you well.
