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.

Hello there. And thanks for looking at my other reviews! Haven't had a chance to check out any AMV websites yet. My week's been ridiculous, and right now I'm having trouble seeing past my blurry contacts, it's 3am, and I just fell asleep through the last of 9 Claymore episodes I've been watching consecutively (yes, I'm boasting). Anyway, the X score, is it really that generous? Looking at my sketchy personal scale: 5 - BAD, 4 - VERY BAD: many major problems. The latter is also applicable, I guess. I believe a 5 is fine because the movie landed just on the wrong side of passable (which is a 6 for me). It had all the elements there to keep it coherent, and the animation raises its rating slightly too, but it just could not produce anything for anybody who is not a 14-year old newbie. Occasionally, it even manages to be amusingly bad, so it isn't quite a 4.

So, you're interested in strategic gaming. We should play a game of chess sometime, or any of the other things you mentioned, I like them all! :D

Well, I just got through looking over ALL your ratings hehe. I was also kind of strict with my 5 star rating. After I was done I was like, "Should I have gave more?" But then I decided I was generous enough with the 4.5 stars. ;) Now it'll be even easier for me to see what I need to watch next, based on other people's opinions.

I'm sad to inform you that I'm watching Monster and it's probably going to knock Excel Saga off my top 5. *cries for Excel*
