Welcome to Ratchet573's Profile

It's coming up on my fifth anniversary on the site, half a decade of anime binge-watching and reviewing. I don't really participate on the forums or chat too much with people but I do have over 150 reviews for you to indulge in if you'd like to see my thoughts on certain subjects. I'm not a convention-goer, I don't really talk much about anime outside of the internet. I'm just a casual viewer who writes down his thoughts for fun.

I'm into more adult, serious shows for the most part and have a soft spot for nineties animation especially. I watch a bit of everything but my favorite genre tends to be sci-fi.

About My Scoring:
So many people take offense to a 6 and consider it a bad score, so I thought I'd address that. A six is an above-average. It's a good average and I tend to enjoy shows with that score. Anything above a five can be considered good. A five is an average so boring I rarely write long reviews for fives. And anything below that can be considered trash.

My Favorite Anime:
Outlaw Star
Steins;Gate
Monogatari
Black Lagoon
Shiki
Big O

 ALL HAIL THE DARK LORD RORY MERCURY

Doesn't your big o rating need some ratings at the bottom?

Hi, I just wanted to say that I won't be very active here for a while because I'm having final exams in less than 2 weeks and shortly before anime I also got into some British TV series three months ago and I want to finish them first. Just watched the first 2 series of Peep Show and The Inbetweeners and it was the most hilarious show I've ever watched, no anime came close to that. Also Black Mirror is great if you want some creepy sci-fi stuff.

HI, just wanted to say that i really like your reviews (although sometimes i don't entirely agree with them): they are elaborate and well-founded, and it isn't just pure ranting or purely praising. Keep up the good work :)

Yes, they don't usually say anything really valuable, but they are nice to listen to in the background.

And I don't get how those people who make boring chapter/episode reviewers get so many subs, you could have easily watched the whole episode in the time of one video. I also noticed that now that list guy got popular, more and more related videos I see are top lists with clickbait boobs/ass thumbnails.

I get what you mean about commnity, the anime community is pretty shit on most places, it's an echo chamber either filled with casuals or pseudo-elitists with complexes, I have yet to find a decent one, but this one and AniDB are probably the closest.

I kind of wanted watch see SAO to see what the fuss was all about but now I have very little desire to now that every critic hates it.

And I considered writing some reviews, but as you can see I'm not a very good writer, my reviews on MAL were completely downvoted which kind of demotivated me even though I know the community is shit. If you could give me any advice I would be grateful.

And PT are a great band, they've been my favourite band for long time. They are that kind of "cult" band mainstream and most press ignores yet they are absolutely loved in prog circles. Unfortunately, they haven't been active in 5 years, but their frontman Steven Wilson has been releasing succesful solo albums and just recently his 4th came out.

Oceansize, Riverside and Tool are some other great modern prog bands similar to them.
