I rate shows based on how much I enjoyed watching them. In my reviews, I try to assign points a little more objectively.

Below 3 stars: Factor of how annoyed I was by the end of it.

3: Average story/characters, somewhat enjoyable.

3.5: Average story/characters, enjoyable-very enjoyable.

4: Above average, enjoyable.

4.5: Above average, hugely enjoyable.

5: Above and beyond average, hugely enjoyable, unusual/memorable, and well-done.

HI :) I am impressed with your anime list and agree with most of your reviews of shows I have seen, to a degree. But one star for FMA? D: whyy?

Also please spread the word to your friends (even if they don't use AP!) ^_^

I used to be much more into the SW books, but fell behind six or seven years ago and just started going back. The X-wing series was always my favorite, but I also really liked how the New Jedi Order was a bit darker and grittier, pulling away from the classic Good vs Evil, Light vs Dark dichotomy and showing that the Force (and life) has many shades depending upon the user. The Legacy of the Force series isn't impressing me all that much, but it's quick and entertaining, and three of the books were written by Aaron Allston, the man who brought us Wraith Squadron, and contain his usual humor and focus on starfighter combat and pilots.

There's as much fantasy on my shelves as sci-fi: Wheel of Time, Sword of Truth, Codex Alera, Mistborn, many of Feist's Midkemia sagas. My favorite authors are probably Michael Scott Rohan and Patrick Rothfuss - The Name of the Wind may be the single best fiction novel I've ever read. I keep picking up various stand-alones and series from other renowned authors, but haven't had time to start most of them yet.

I've also got an entire shelving unit full of epics, plays, and histories of ancient Greece and Rome (leftovers from earning my Classics degree) and histories of the pre-Columbian South- and Mesoamerican civilizations (Archaeology degree). Throw in the occasional instructional taijutsu book, a few military action thrillers, and a bunch more random sci-fi, and you've got my collection.

I added you as a friend a while ago, but I just got around to comparing our lists. You've watched considerably more than I, which is a bit of an accomplishment (congrats, I suppose), but we have so many 'watched' and 'watching' in common that it took me almost fifteen minutes! We also have remarkably similar ratings for things we've both watched. So, I'll be relying on you for recommendations and opinions in the future, and please feel free to ask me anything, as well. I'm also a martial artist and a teacher, so apparently like flocks to like! :)

I hope I'll become like you someday.. though I'm more interested in germanic, romanic and slavic languages ^^
