Hi there! I'm a not-so-normal girl living in Seattle, WA. I work for a software company as a writer of developer documentation, but my background is computer science and programming. In my spare time I enjoy video games, especially console RPGs such as my obsession, Dragon Quest (or old school PC ones such as Ultima aka best games ever, or Sierra adventure classics), anime (duh!), sci fi, movies, my cats, and various other nerd things.

I created the Anime-Planet site many years ago, as a simple hub for a community. It has grown so much since then, and I'm proud to call myself its creator and admin. Please enjoy your stay here!


My anime list stats and uses:

Watched: as it should be used, this means I've seen the entire series.

Watching: Either am currently watching or plan on continuing at some point soon

Stalled: I mark things as stalled when I either can't continue (no more episodes available), or plan on finishing eventually - just not right now.

Dropped: I don't plan on finishing this anime.

Hey Sothis, me and my group of currently 41 members, are in a predicament. We've made sure that our movement doesn't call anyone out, nor directly offend people. Yet countless people seem to be warning others of our group. I'm aware of your possible animosity towards me and my crew, but we would like equal treatment. You once warned me(to which I obliged), to stop warning people of the 'Welcoming Committee'. Now people are doing it to us, and if we can't do it, we'd like them to be warned as well. We know most will not like our followings, but we've not singled anyone out, nor directly attacked them. We're just trying to clean the name of anime. I've done my best to follow the rules you gave me, and made my profile non-sexual, non-racial, and fair. Until weeaboos are the minority, anime will continue to hold a negative connotation.

It's okay sothis, after all you are only human; similarly to all humans, we all make mistakes.

While you may believe my reviews are of poor quality and therefore should not exist on the website, I would say that they have been around for long enough that they have become ancient literature - while certain pieces such as Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' and 'Romeo and Juliet' may not be to your taste, you cannot simply remove them from existence.

I would also like to say that badges and not spoiling TV shows are just causes, as the fine delicacy of writing a review goes into question. What is a review? According to Anime-Planet review guidelines [1], a review should be 'around 4-5 paragraphs' if free form. Obviously, these old reviews do not qualify under these guidelines. This is why I believe they should be stripped of the review title and instead given the title of 'Ancient Literature in Japanese-English Studies' so that future generations can understand what anime used to be like.

Thank you for your time.
