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.

I would like to become a site reviewer, but I have a problem. The problem is, when I tried to apply to become a site reviewer. The thread was closed, preventing me to apply. Lucky, I read some of more informations, and it lead me to you. Since it said, that you can answer my questions. Therefore my questions are, can you help me to solve my problem with unable to apply? Since I am very knowledge of Mangas. I read a lot of Mangas that Anime-Planet don't have a review of it. Which is the main reason of why i want to add reviews into this website, so there will be more people to learn about those mangas. I am not very computer knowledge, but I am fast-learner. Hope you can help me out.

P.S. My English are pretty decent, but not perfected. However, I hope it would be suffice. Thanks in advance if you answer my question.

I enjoyed it all and have no big criticisms. I understand that some people will probably be put off by the dialogue or interpret just another formulaic ninja show, but for me these turned into PLUS points. And indeed, after the first episode, the fights got marginally more interesting to watch, and then from epsidoe four I knew they'd just been holding out like the dirty teases they are. This show ended up building something unique from the ground up. It's all in the refusal to adhere to our expectations. My specific view on the ending is here in spoiler tags:

I'm trying to convince ThePatches that I will be giving it a 3/10, so currently not revealing where it stands. I like watching him have a heart attack. Anyway, I shall be checking out Bakemonogatari after all. Not sure when exactly, but I'll get round to it.

So just finished watching Katanagatari. I started writing my site review but can't seem to get beyond 'Awesomest thing ever?' Think I'll get away with just repeating that to make 1000 words?

Up to episode 7. I am 100% satisfied with this show. I haven't watched something to all-round awesome in ages. I am tempted to add Nanami to my favourite characters. Hmmm...

Jury is out. Katanagatari is the awesomest thing I've seen in maybe about two years. Just finished episode 3 and the preview for episode 4 had me wetting myself with excitement.
