about me

Introductions are always the most difficult task I face with any community that I become a part of, hehe :)

My name is mariprosa-a combination of the Spanish terms "mariposa" (butterfly) and "rosa" (rose)-so you could say it means "rosy butterfly". I'm soon to be 25 years old and a college student-always busy. I've watched anime for more than 10 years (give or take, because way back when I didn't even know Sailor Moon was anime-that was pretty much my gateway series aside from Cowboy Bebop). Since then, I've seen a lot of series-that being a gross understatement, but I think of anime as one of my active hobbies.

I love reading, creative writing, volunteering, playing sports (favorites are soccer, swimming and basketball), hanging out with friends and family, and I'm a bit of a calm, free-spirited person. I love meeting new people as well :) I'm from the United States, speak a few languages (Japanese is something I'm trying to learn on my own-and it's going okay, but not as much since I don't have a lot of time-but I get practice from watching anime too-so it's a plus)-Spanish, French, very little Portugese, and I know Latin and Greek to some extent. So you can say I'm very open-minded with everything I approach.

With anime-I'm a combination of being constructively critical and also consider it as something to freely enjoy. There are some series I have biases against (harem series, usually), while I have biases for others I really, really enjoy (slice of life), but I set those aside and will pretty much watch most things you put on my plate-just as long as its not too OTT.

Well, that's me in a nutshell.  I'm glad to be a part of A-P, even if I don't find myself on here as much as I would like. ^_^

General note for my reviews: anything above an 8 I'd classify to be a favorite and a definite recommendation to watch. Anything between 7-8 are definitely good series, but probably had one or two kinks to it. Series in the 6 range are decent watches, definitely worth watching once, but might be more oriented towards specific audiences. Series that are in the 5 range, I personally don't care for them, and had points to pick, but I wouldn't rule them out in the recommendation range because there were points that they may, or may not have done well. Some of the series in my 5 range I actually enjoyed on a base level, but not enough to really hit home with me, or I found it too trite/cliched.

Below 5...and I probably will review a few series that reached this point... little to no value for me, unfortunately. I hate saying that, because I don't really like to give too many series the boot, but some of the series I've watched, in the 10+ years I've watched anime, go beyond the series in this range.

Yes omg, I loved Trigun so much <3, that anime made me laugh so much at the beginning, then at the end the story got all dramatic and intense, plus the action scenes were great too.  Gotta love Vash, hilarious and goofy, yet extremely bad ass all at once.

 And yes ^^ I just have that much more to look forward to! :D I'm workin on it ;P Though being in college and all it's tough to find time to sit down and watch much anime ^^ Usually only have enough free time on weekends and such to watch a good amount. 

 Havn't seen anything on your top 5 myself except for some of FMA, which is another one on my list to watch, what I've seen so far has been great.
