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.

Thanks for the link!  You're right, there are so many manga in this site that either need more tags or don't have any tags at the moment.  So, I'll check that forum out and see what I can do.

Hi there sothis! I'm glad you enjoy my recs :)

Thanks for letting me know about the tags, off the top of my head I can already think of quite a few manga titles I've read that are yet to be tagged. As for the tags themselves, seems like you've all done a wonderful job with that already, I doubt I could add anything of substance.

BTW, are you accepting synopses? If so, I'd be glad to help.

Many thanks for the detailed reply!

I've already said it a bunch in other threads, forums and on Facebook, but the changes as they stand are brilliant. I fully understand that having too many tags for every term, some of which would barely be used, would make things too cluttered and complex.

Regarding 'gender bender', I'd argue that just because an offensive term is widely used, that doesn't make it any less offensive, and personally think that a change in that tag would make this site stand out for the better from others that continue to use it; but that's just my opinion on the matter.

I'll be sure to keep thinking of character changes to suggest in the thread, and will try and get a few other people to suggest some (preferably in person instead of through me all the time!) :P
