Hello, welcome to my profile! The picture is of me settling a bet over whether a completely untrained and out-of-shape dude could roundhouse kick a cup that was higher than his head. Don't I look awesome?

I'm a recently graduated physics/math major who writes anime reviews for some reason. As I finished up my physics major, I realized that I just wasn't interested in pursuing the field as a career, so instead I kicked some ass at my GRE's and got an assistantship to study at the department of statistics at Colorado State University. Why statistics? Well, WHY NOT?

Besides anime, my main interests are writing, strategic gaming (poker, magic: the gathering, go, chess, etc), and internet piracy.

As far as my reviews/star ratings go: In general, a 6 (***) is watchable, a 7 (***1/2) is good and an 8 (****) is a must-see.

You know how when everyone goes on and on about this great show that you think was more so-so and it just makes you want to bash it harder than it deserves? It's a bit like that, although I didn't think I was ragging on Toradora that much. I just find it average and don't know what all the fuss is about. I couldn't warm to the characters, I found the content unoriginal, and I never quite got how the romance was supposed to work. I did like the animation and the plot overall wasn't bad - heck, had its moments of giggles. For me it was like a wishy-washy Haruhi. But I appreciate it's one of the most popular things on earth right now, so maybe I just wasn't paying attention *<--- actually thinks everyone's just blind*.

Incidentally, it was a good idea to drop RotLW at ep 3. It only get worse. I'm on episode five and there was a ball where Deedlit runs around being admired by all the ladies. Wow. Just wow.

I was so bored watching Record of the Lodoss OVA that I thought I'd come and check up with your rating of the show. Because maybe I missed something and it's really great or something. Lo and behold, you dropped it at episode 3, the episode I'm watching and groaning to right now. Probably one of the greater mediocre yawn-fests I've seen in a long while. Kinda like FMP and Toradora, generic in every way for their genres, offering nothing that I haven't seen before. Anyway, glad to know I wasn't just going mad.

Deedlit must die.

Lol Ya Really.

Eh, those werent my best insults btw but basically right back at you brah. Your gonna find ppl who dont agree with your reviews and there will be at least one person that in turn will say something "inflammatory" about them.

Sure Ill give you the fact that calling you a fan boy was some funny irony, but it was also ironic to me that you called what I wrote a "rant", when in reality its you review that read like a rant. Face it brah its wasnt a very good review. Dont get butt hurt that you got called out, and believe me, I had no intention of trying to impress anyone. If you want to engage in an intelligent conversation, be my guest but my advice for you in the future, when you write something harsh dont feel like your reality has been shattered when someone responds with something that is equally harsh.

(and btw, i took a look at your review list and totally agreed with all your scores....figures, well GG lol)

A couple of years ago I took a screenwriting class, which is when I realized that my fondness for both movies and writing could be put to great use. Ever since then, I've set my career goal in that direction, and really immersed myself in movies. I have seen Oldboy - I liked it, but I like the other two films in Park Chan-Wook's trilogy more.

I think I just fell out of sorts with anime. There must have been a patch where nothing interesting was being released, and I'm sure I thought to myself that it wasn't really for me anymore. I still have a soft spot in my heart for the really great stuff like Monster, Kino's Journey, Honey and Clover and the like. I think the last anime I watched that I'd call truly good was Kemonozume, though I liked Higurashi for all the wrong reasons. :D

It's too bad about Pantha. I talked with her on AIM for a while but then she sort of disappeared off of that too. I'm friends with Sinai on Facebook. Other than that, I don't really talk with anyone else from the site. And you shouldn't view sticking with your hobby as weird - think of it as disciplined! You're a stronger man than all of us.

If you have any recommendations that you really feel I should watch, I'm all ears. I do admit to having a surface interest in Ergo Proxy, but after reading your review I'm not so sure. :]
