I have just recently started giving reviews on the things i watch... and i do it in an informal way. I got tired of reading those reviews that people make so formal and gramatically correct that its boring to read. (at least to me, although i do think there is a place for formal things) So thats why i wanted to give my "advice" in an informal way, for that specific crowd out there. I hope it helps. The purpose of my reviews focuses on "do i want to watch this?"... Since... sometimes when i look for new anime, I want to know a little bit about it from different people, or in an informal way. I can tell a lot about an anime, just by hearing what a person has to say (their opinion). Even if their opinion is stupid, if they said they didnt like the anime, maybe i would. Get it? Stupid people have purpose! lol jp, although.. I do have a point. If you are a fellow user that dislikes my reviews then tough cookies: but foreal, leave me alone. If you are an admin that is getting upset from something i have done, then tell me, and ill delete them. Please let me continue to use this site for documenting my watch history though. I've donated in the past and probably will in the future. I love this site.

To those of you that like my reviews or at the very least... say... "I dont really like them, but he has a right to post his opinion. Maybe someone else will find it useful." ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU!!! you get it! I have no problem with people teaching me the error in my ways, so that i may learn better methods of doing things. The problem i have is with people that tell me im wrong (shouldnt review, etc), and give bulls shit reasoning so confidently that it may influence others that are easily influenced to look past all the good straight at the bad.

I watch anime because it distracts me from all the bull shit that is going on in the world. Obviously all the other reasons too.. but that is one that i find unique/important to myself. I think i should mention this: I cuss. Its basically like an exclamation mark, but from a different perspective. The only reason cuss words are such a big deal is because people make a big deal out of them. There will always be violence and ways to express one's self, that someone else isnt going to like, but making it taboo, will only create more problems, or at the very least solve nothing, since it doesnt solve the root cause. Anyways, dont take my "french" badly. :) Sometimes I say things, and may seem like an ass, but im just blunt. Youd do well to appreciate bluntness. It saves the hassle of beating around the bush. Thats not to say that i dont see the value in being "considerate". I just dont see it as much as others lol!

yoroshiku onigaishimasu... XD

I do not like english dubbed anime (except pokemon, since its funny as shit lol). At the very least the anime is originally made to go with japanese pacing, and when they put it into english its awkward. But there are many other reasons. I like the good old fashion Japanese dubbed, with english subtitles.

Hehe, they were pretty interesting watches. I don't really deign to align myself with anything. Politically I'm very central, leaning towards the left more than anything.

I'm actually 19 at the moment. My birthday's in the fall. :)

Monster is great, just because it asks such good questions. A brilliant neurosurgeon loses everything (his high position, his fiancee, his respect) when he chooses to operate on a little boy rather than the town mayor. If he'd have operated on the mayor, the hospital would have got some very much needed funding, but deciding the little boy is more important (though he agonises about his decision to 'save the more important life'), the mayor dies in an operation with less-skilled surgeons. He wanders through his life in a stupor for the next few weeks, but soon enough, all the surgeons and hospital officials who oppressed him are killed off by what appears to be a poisoning. Years later, he realises their murders were actually linked... and that little boy he saved is now a prolific serial killer. I mean, what a great concept for a story. I'm no philosopher (in fact, I cannot stand most religion), but I never really thought more about the value of life than when I watched Monster. ^^

I went through the same period while I was in my 'read all the time and read all the classics' phase. It's so, so difficult to go back to reading modern writing when your only comparison is the glut of 18/19/20th century greats.

I'm planning on taking a degree in Japanese with a heavy emphasis on their modern culture, so wish me luck. :) I had no Japanese classes whatsoever in my area (well, unless you count the $40,000 a year private school nearby that does this weird 'pay teacher on commission' policy x_x), so I solved my problem with buying books, importing Japanese magazines and kids' manga, heck, I had some really complicated kanji flashcards I ordered but never used because I misread the fact they're study aids for high school students. XD

Peace~

Thank you for commenting back. I like getting comments, as you may have guessed. ^_^

And yeah... tsundere types are horribly common in anime/manga these days. If only because these kinds of characters are so horribly popular. x_x It's some kind of weird masochism among the extreme otaku that a girl should have that sort of personality. I suppose in the West, we're like: 'Ugh, I'd take that stupid girl down a peg or two', but for the otaku, it's fine. This is essentially because a tsundere girl has her moments of sweetness, but still has that lovely masochistic aura that shines through just when she thinks she's exposed her emotions too much. This also happens in shoujo or BL, and encompasses both genders. Probably a long-winded explanation (me being a psychology/sociology nut), sure, but that's how I try to empathise with why tsundere types are so popular.

I'm 20 this year, and I agree with the low intellectual level of a lot of anime. I like romances, comedies, fantasy, etcetera, but I like it to be anchored in some aspects of real life. I love Nodame Cantabile because the characters are written in a way so you can relate and maybe even recall knowing someone like this. 

I write a lot (I like writing teenage fiction, mostly), and I sometimes find the young adult books that are churned out by publishers to be utterly appaling in quality. Characters speak like no teenager speaks... For example, in one book I read, this girl is a vegetarian. The other character replies: "Oh? Hippy parents or your own pathetic attempt at teenage rebellion?" Happens all over the board, unfortunately. :<

But yeah, I don't want to condemn Japan, because they are great at what they do at times. I'm watching Monster at the moment, and it is brilliant. No silly anime tropes present, and genuinely gripping drama that treats you like an adult. I have a Japanese pen pal, and even she admits that it's really hard to find anime with intellectual plots.

Sorry if this comment got a bit long. XD Hopefully I addressed all your points.

Nice talking to you. ^^

Ok, let's assume said little girl is intelligent. "Mature", and "wants it" by the age of 12. Two problems with that, brah.

1) The average adult male human's penis would DESTROY a little girl's funny parts. That's right, your little girlw ill be nice and "mature", but that shit will PHYSICALLY hurt the kid.

2) In no court of law will they listen when a little kid says she "wanted it". Ever.

Sure, maybe a sixteen year old isn't necessarily messed up morally in that she's engaging in sexual activity, but jesus dude, she's being FORCED INTO IT. BY HER SISTER.

Hi man I like your sig, just wanted to say I felt the same way as you with Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru, wich is why I gave it a 6 instead of lower. It's a bit of Originality from use'n old settings, and doing it poorly. Wish them did it better as I can't help but feel it could have been good atleast.
