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 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.

Wow, I like your page. Very neat, and warming to read.  And I'm not saying that because you are the creator of the site. I really do like it. You are open. Not afraid to say whats on your mind in reviews, and I do like your love/hate lists. But now I'm getting off topic to what I had wanted to ask while I remembering it.

As you know, I just recently started getting back into the flow of using this site. One of the things I wanted to do, aside from watch some anime and keep track of my lists, was to write reviews. Unfortunately, I'm don't have that much of an easy time with them. Well, I do, if I were writing in a notebook. But once I read what I wrote back to me I want to slap myself for I feel as if I were some silly kid. (I have that problem. I'm shy, I'm not that much of a social person (I'm even a little afraid of being laughed at for writing this to you. -_-) so I feel as if I'm stumbling.)

I came here, and I was reading over your reviews, and I liked how you were able to get your points across. Especially with the Death Note one. (I don't get the hype of it either. It wasn't special or anything, and the endless ours of inner monologue.. Gods I felt as if I could read two books and have been done by the time he was threw with talking to himself.) You were clean, open, and I had fun reading them, and they were helpful to some point or other. That's what I'd like to be able to do but, aside from being shy, I don't feel as if I my points off clearly enough.

So, I was wondering, do you have any tips as to writing a helpful review? Thank you, and sorry to bother (and for rambling at some points.).

Thanks for your comment, and the inclusion of my recommendation in the Crunchy Roll article! It was pretty cool to see something I wrote appear on a major site, even if it was just a paragraph. I used to make some pretty detailed blog posts before the feature was KO'd, so I'll try to make the switch to writing regular(ish) reviews from now on. If you like what I write in the future, please let me know, and I'll be happy to keep contributing.

Hey Sothis. People may have already raised this issue, but something that I really liked about the old version that I only just noticed is not here anymore is that you can't sort anime by the number of people who have watched it/are watching it. I preferred to look at that sometimes rather than what is highly rated. The most watched anime are the most widely known and most popular.

It's just that a lot of people don't do ratings and people seem to change their ratings frequently. Many of the top ranked anime came out in the last couple of years and not many have seen them. Not that they're not good or anything, but I think following the top rated anime is more like following what has been good in recent years or what is popular among hardcore anime fans who keep up with the newest releases.

I may be alone in this, but I would have thought most casual viewers would prefer to know what everyone else has watched/is watching. I'd like to be able to see what the most popular releases ever have been, rather than just what is good now.

Sorry for the overly long message, and I appreciate that you're probably still very busy with the whole changeover thing already. But I just thought I would raise the point in case nobody else had.

And a comment, can you change the way reviews are displayed?  It is really horrendous scrolling through short clips of people's reviews I dont want to read just to find good and/or critical reviews of an anime.  The old system of displaying the title/score was cleaner and you could select what you wanted.  Was it high across the board?  Was it mixed?  Now I have to scroll through huge walls of text to see one score, next wall of text next score, not fun.
