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.

Whilst I am not near as strict as you in what I watch (I like a little of everything as far as genres are concerned) I really enjoy more 'adult' types of series. Mentionables would be Lain, Paranoia Agent, Haibane, Mushishi and Monster. Dark tones, mature stories, and no real 'anime cliches' involved. How come you haven't filled in your anime list? *asks for the selfish reason of wanting to pick through it* It could be really beneficial, ya know :D 

Anyhow, I see you on the forum all the time and happened to run across your profile so I figured I would say "hello"
