Hi, I'm Hotspot!  I love anime, video games, nature, art, drawing, graphics, photography, suikoden, kya dark lineage, chrono cross and boomerangs!

 I'm currently working retail, but I really would like to get a more "Artsy" job, preferably graphic design, but it's not as easy as you'd think it is!

I mainly watch Action Adventure, Comedy, Mystery and Yaoi anime. I am not a fan of Mecha, Yuri, Ecchi, Incest or romance anime (That does not involve two men).
I'm pretty easy going, especially when it comes to video games and anime! I tend to rate things very high, if I loved it, it gets a 5, if it was great! It gets a 4, shows that I like are 3 and everything else is below. I don't understand people who give low ratings to every anime they've seen, it makes no sense to me...  It's no wonder half the anime on Anime-Planet is all 3.0 and under... People are too negative, if you ask me.

Hello! Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment, I appreciate the feedback!

I do not believe I have an inherent problem with shounen ai anime, rather I have yet to find one that interests me. The three you specifically mentioned I obviously was not a fan of, but even then I don't necessarily count them all as shounen ai. To break down my personal opinions in quick summary:

  • Dramatical Murder is a shounen ai, yes, but with uninteresting characters and a plot quite reminiscent of Accel World, which I wasn't fond of in the first place.
  • 07-Ghost has a somewhat shounen ai feel in places, but that's mired under Shingeki no Kyoujin levels of angst and without the pacing or script necessary to keep it engaging. I tried pretty hard with this one, and followed the manga a decent bit past where the anime ends, but ultimately I couldn't get into it.
  • Owari no Seraph feels nothing at all like shounen ai to me; only vibes I can even suppose at are from protag and his best friend, and I took those far more as them being emotional about their reunion after protag spent years thinking his best friend had been murdered before his eyes. And again, bury that under epic levels of angst and one of the worst scripts I have ever seen, to say nothing of the totally unoriginal plot.

That's my opinions in a nutshell, but again, they're just opinions. I've heard plenty of people say they enjoyed 07-Ghost, and I'm continually mystified at Owari no Seraph's popularity.

Still, I pride myself on being pretty open to any genre, and I feel I just haven't had proper exposure to any good shounen ai anime. If you could recommend a couple, I'd love to take a look at them.
