Bio? Well, better left alone.

How I got to this site is a short story: for some reason I happen to be highly interested in visual art and non-mainstream movies. For anime, I don't like it as a generic thing just for being drawn or being Japanese, but there are works there which go far beyond just cartoons, and seeking a way to separate them led me here.

In general, I watch mostly serious seinen movies or series. But, as I've done with the ones most interesting, currently I'm looking into other genres, which have remarkable works as well.

A few words about how I rate anime, if you decide to check my list. 2.5 stands for "met expectations" - I got what was described. 3 means it's good, 3.5, really good, I liked it, and could recommend it. 4 means it's great and I'm going to watch it again, and 4.5 is really for the most immersive ones. And, if I rate as 5, then it also is on my top 5 list. This is all just about impression and not objectivity - I well realize some I've rated 4 are far simpler than some I'e rated 3, but perhaps they had something in them which made me watch them non-stop.

As for the "to watch" list - it doesn't mean I want to watch this, just that I got interested in the name, or a screenshot, or a rec, and tagged it to check out more info someday. If I actually wanted to watch something, I would have watched it already. There is nothing I want to watch now, out of what is released and available to me.

Whoa! I only just now noticed that you came back (After seeing that excellently worded rec for Planetes/Rescue Wings), glad to see you again :)

You are just completely saving me in the objective therad... your arguments are just so much more clear and concise than I seem to be capable of ^_^ I hope I'm not just getting in your way -.-'

Just wanted to give another shout out for the recommendations... really liking them so far. Keep up the good work!

Mmm, random comedic elements thrown in indeed doesn't always work :/ I was glad that FMA managed to keep such a good balance between the two tones and it just... worked.

As a note though, I notice you don't have a few things in your list that you really should consider watching: Mushishi and Kino's Journey (due to liking Haibane -- these are super intelligent as well; trust me!), Hi no Tori (a personal favorite, it's a looot like Kino and I can't really explain why. Quite, quite epic if you get all the way through it. There's a chance you might like Denno Coil as well but I wasn't a fan.
