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

Not Star Wars. Star Trek. :p

In that case, I'd definitely recommed Space Battleship Yamato 2199 (2012). It's a remake of an old Yamato, and last 4 episodes are not subbed yet (it has a weird way of airing). It's something like Star Wars, but imho, a lot better. Gorgeus animation with top notch quality and insanely entertaining sf stuff. Good war drama and goodness all around it. Getting into it is not problem because it really swallows you in only 1 episode. I'd definitely recommed it over Aot or bake at any time.

Heh, I'm currently skipping a year of college... and I'm out of work... so it's a whole year of time wasting for me. I guess I'll finially go for my language diplomas. But I know how much pain in the ass all that shit does... I found it impossible to work and study at the same time, so good luck with all that.

I didn't find much goodness from anime nowadays. The most recent anime I really liked (2012-13) were From The New World and JoJo's Bizarre Adventures (and Inferno Cop for being the most ridiculous thing ever). 

I do follow every season... but that's mostly because I'm running out of anime to watch. I have maybe 20 more titles before I start watching Legend of Galactic Heroes, and after that I have yet to see anime that would impress me. 

About Bake; when it all goes down to light, it's just a really well made waifu porn. It's not dumb, by all means. Characterization is where it's at, and there is some sort of depth in each charachter, but mostly in Hanekawa Tsubasa, who had the most masterful arc I've seen in a year or so. But that was in Monogatari Season 2 which is still airing. If to speak in general; I'd say that it has a depth of a puddle... but sometimes it leaves me amazed. 

Even though AOT has its flaws, it's really fun to watch, if anything.

Np, man. I'm glad it was of service.

Ah, I like Slayers as well. Heche the name Naga, which I took from Big-breasted big sister of Rina Inverse. :3

I'm currently watching The Big O and Zegapain. I'm 6 episodes in in both of them, and I really like what I'm seeing so far. And I'm also finishing SoulTaker, one of Shinbo's earlier works (Bake series and so on).
