I'm a 20-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 =)

Haha thanks. I am used to people trolling so it doesn't really affect me. Actually I enjoy it because then I have something to argue about. That blog website is an awesome idea. Yeah I will go check out everything you editted again for sure. Laziness is a chronic condition for most of us it seems. I was planning to back up my blogs on dubtopianreview (successor of Just-dubs) but apparently they dont have a blogs section yet so i will keep them saved on my PC until I find somewhere to put them. I am in the midst of moving homes currently so sorry for the late reply.

So I wrote a new blog, if you have the time go check it out. I am happy because my months long writers block if gone so I can pump out some new content, all thanks to you. That push you gave me helped a lot so thanks again. Hopefully will get in another blog and review soon

Yes! I told you to forget about the accent and other such nuisances. Just make the review. I've read most if not all of what you have on this site and it is much better than a lot of other reviews and blogs. Give the video a try. Check out the AMVs i have on my account, the first one is HORRIBLE, but i still made it public. Embarrasment teaches you what skill cannot haha
