I'm a 22-year-old guy from Europe and I enjoy watching anime, movies and playing video games. English is not my native language, so please excuse any grammar or spelling mistakes in my reviews, blogs, etc.

When it comes to my anime history, I consider my first one to be Devil May Cry: The Animated Series.  I'm a huge fan of a PlayStation 2 title called Devil May Cry 3 and, at the time, was anticipating for Devil May Cry 4 to be released, so my friend and I ended up watching it. Even though I had seen various anime (such as Pokemon, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh etc.)  in my childhood prior to that, they are not added to my Watched  list and I’m reluctant to call them “the first” anime I’ve seen due to the fact that at the time I was not aware of the concept of “anime” and referred to them as “cartoons” instead. I consider the DMC animated series to be a reference point in my life when it comes to me and my attitude towards anime, thus only anime watched after DMC is added in my Watched list. 

From age 10 to 13 I didn't watch any anime or cartoons at all due to my belief that sort of media is childish and it would be juvenile for a person of my age to watch them. Devil May Cry changed this opinion and opened a never seen world before me called "anime".  The story telling, animation and violence both surprised and impressed me, so I decided to check out more of it. My second anime was Elfen Lied and after that came Death Note. Though Devil May Cry: The Animated Series is what initially peaked me interest, it’s both Elfen Lied and Death Note that completely sold me on the concept and both still are two of my favourite anime.

I dislike overrated and unnecessarily prolonged (milked) anime. Though surely, I might pick an anime to watch based on its popularity, I won't jump on the bandwagon and say that it's good just because everyone else seems to do so. I form my own opinions and I base my judgments on my own experience. I don’t expect people to necessarily agree with me, but I expect others to respect my opinions as I try to respect theirs.

Star rating represents my enjoyment of anime and not necessarily my "objective" opinion of it. So just because I’ve rated something 5 out of 5 stars doesn’t mean I think it’s perfect - it means I highly enjoyed it and would watch again. In my anime reviews, I try to give more „objective” ratings and always back them up with solid arguments. That being said, all reviews still are opinions and all opinions are subjective. 

Feel free to ask me anything =)

Yeah I can't wait for Persona 5 either, Catherine is a pretty good game btw. I can believe you have only completed one jrpg, I've put down and forget to pick up again quite a few jrpgs because they required me to level up aload before I could beat the last boss and I couldnt be bothered to level at the time or the story didnt pull me in enough and I just stopped playing.

Hm, on the last boss on Persona 4 you need to save as much sp on the first form as possible and on the second form make sure to block after charges. always use the defense and attack increasing skills or if you have the one that increases them all in one skill use that. Also maybe you need to level up abit.

Yeah alot of people are prejudice but thats because they know nothing about it and everything animated they have seen has been aimed at kids.

Aigis is my favourite character ever, I love persona 3.

In the end it is your choice but i still recommend you give Naruto a 5-10 episode try. Don't worry, no one is asking you to watch all the 200 episodes in one shot (i tried really hard but failed :P loved it that much). Give it like 2 episodes a day or more if you want.

I also say drop Dantes Inferno. It is a 2 hours waste of your life. Read my review on it for more information. You will not like it and yes Dante DOES scream "Beatrice" a whole lota times in the anime too, if i remember correctly
