My name is Blaize, I'm a British Anime addict and DVD/BD collector.

I became obsessed with Anime just over 9 years ago and found Anime Planet very early on. In fact when I first joined Anime Planet I had seen only 2 series. 

My tastes have developed over the years as I've sampled pretty much everything Anime has to offer in some way or another from most decades. Favourite Genres tend to be Seinen series, Supernatural and Shoujo Romance. I enjoy  my fair share of Shonen also but it can get boring after awhile.

I very much enjoy OVA's from the 80s and 90s so I've seen alot of those as well.

I don't tend to keep up with each season, instead I usually marathon a show after it's aired or I wait for a home video release so I can often be out of the loop about the latest shows.

My Goal for 2017 is to watch all the older Anime series (70s, 80s and 90s) that I keep putting off as 'someday I will watch that'. Well 2017 is going to be full of the somedays where I finally watched that. I also want to finish alot of franchises by watching all thats available for shows like Fist of the North Star etc.

If you recognize me from Youtube then feel free to follow me and say hello : )

I'm not surprised by your dislike on the robot love aspect of Chobits, it's one of the few major contentions to it's "good for general consumption" status. Most people either don't understand or don't like the idea of a character falling in love with the artificial. Indeed, I understand the reaction though I still loved the ending for the exact reason you disliked it.

Once again, much appreciated feedback to my review despite the differing of opinions!

It would be hard for me to recommend the History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi manga to you since you weren't that impressed with the anime, but I will say that the manga does actually get better as things progress. There becomes a real background story and reason for the fights instead of just fighting for the sake of fighting.

I'd say give is a try, if I remember correctly the anime finishes at around chapter 140 something and it's still ongoing currently on 449, so really if you're 50 chapters in and don't really see much to your liking still... *shrugs* might not find anything else to sway you.

Thanks for your review comment and your opinion on the show, much appreciated. Hope this helps ya a little!

Hi there man! It's so nice to see Kaiji in someone else's list. As you said that anime is an amazing masterpiece that's very different to anything else. I love Fukumoto Nobuyuki's (the original author) dark ambiances and that wonderful, deppressing vibe of despair, self-destruction and non-achievement, all while crossing the limits between life and death and learning lessons the hardest way. Corruption and betrayal are everyday ocurrences and hope is a mere illusion for sore losers. Plus there's the the thrills and the twisted, sadistic implications of everything that happens. I was holding my breath throughout the whole thing and the ending is one of the best I've ever seen, with a flawless thematical conclusion and a 10-ton heavy moral. It's just perfect!

I'm so excited about the next season starting in less than two weeks that I think about this show everyday. I watched it last summer and ever since I've hardly found an anime that was remotely as enjoyable as Kaiji.

Ok, since you read my review, here is a tip.  Definitely watch the Funimation English dub for laughs.

Here is a link to the official Funimation Sgt Frog Page

and here is a link to episode one english
