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!

I really appreciate your reviews and you sense of musical knowledge. It's pretty hard to find musicly inclinded people these days

I think my core issue with the plot of KnT 2 stemmed from the fact that their relationship took a HUGE step backward at the start of the seaon and seemed to go against all the implicit agreements they'd made in the first season. Had this season run by itself, I'd not has been as upset.

In addition, they whole "everything that could go wrong, did" progression seemed a little tired without a villain or any additional emotional urgency. Compare it to say, Toradora! where Ryuuji and Taiga's deep family problems and life plans dominated the second half. I understand that there is some veracity to what went on, but it still needs to make for compelling watching. Compare Toradora!'s computer lab scene (plays out very much like high school FELT, and was entertaining to watch) to the night before the school festival (much more like high school was LIKE, but felt a little more sedate).

Hey what's up. I read some of your reviews while looking for shoujo anime and I thought they were really funny. If you like shoujo a lot you should definitely check out an old anime called Super Pig. It's really fun magical girl/shoujo anime and based on the animes you review I think you might like it. I'm also looking for new anime so definitely don't hesitate to tell me about any good shoujo/magical girl or any good anime.

Hi, I appreciate that you took the time to write such a detailed reply to my comment. I see your point and I'm sorry if my comment was too harsh (which I feared as I typed it), but I felt like I had to come to the defense of an anime that I respect so highly, especially since I saw important points being ignored. Of course, a review can only be so long, and you can't address everything that's revelant.

Becoming a site reviewer does sound interesting. Perhaps I'll have time for that now that summer is here, though I admit that I'm not entirely sure how one goes about doing it haha.
