Hello Hello. So I will start by stating the obvious: I love anime and manga. As a child, I adored Dragonball Z and Sailormoon and even Pokemon. However after that, I did not return to anime until high school when I was introduced to OHSHC and now I am an avid fan.  I enjoy a wide range of anime/manga though there are few genres that I tend to avoid such as yaoi, yuri, ecchi, hentai, and explicit violence and nudity. Even then, I may compromise if I get good recommendations. For the most part, I am always up for trying new animes and manga so please feel free to recommend anything.

Some other interests including cooking and baking, playing the piano, doing yoga, running, reading, and just being with my friends. I am also currently a pre-med student and am hoping to become a doctor. If you want to know more, feel free to ask.

*For a run-down on my star rating system, let me first state that the star rating simply dictates how entertaining I find the series. It does not technically have to do with having a great cast with rich character development in conjuction with an innovative and thought-provoking plot now how I would choose to recommend the anime/manga.

5: This rating remains an exception to the above statement. I find the plot original, suspenseful, and incredibly well-thought out. The cast remains diverse yet memorable, with each character having their own significance, and there exists substantial character development. I would highly recommend this series to just about anyone regardless of their genre preference.

4: If I find a series entertaining but not amazing, this tends to be my go-to rating. I would consider this my generic default rating, as long as I am thoroughly entertained but not blown away. I would probably recommend this for anyone who enjoys the genre but not necessarily for anyone who does not.

3: For series that are subpar but still somewhat entertaining. The series, though not awful, seems lackluster and only mildly entertaining. There exists a low possibility that I would recommend this but for the most part, I simply found the anime mediocre at best so nothing really worth noting. Not really horrible or an eyesore but nothing all that great and note-worthy either.

2: This remains for series that had potential and has few genuinely decent moments but overall fell flat. Lackluster plot and cast that may be at times be entertaining but for the most part did not compell me to continue further. Since the series really has little redeeming value, I would not recommend this, even to someone who enjoys the genre.

1: Horrible. Absolutely horrible. I would never recommend this to anyone, regardless of genre preference. Series with this rating are lacking in every sense. The characters are either completely generic stereotypes with few if any defining or likable characteristics or are just horrificly disgusting characters that should only exist as villians, and even that could be pushing it. The plots lack originality, good humor, and remains either boring and vapid or completely bizarre to the point where little makes sense. There is absolutely nothing remotely redeeming at all about this series and I would never even want to discuss such a series.

Hehe... I'm a bit beyond Collage myself. ;) Approx 15 years to be exact. But I still enjoy anime and even if my father calls me childish and wonder when I will grow up I think he will be disappointed. :P People can't be judged by age. It depends on who you are and what you do with your life.

Were can you be found then? In the states I guess?

lol you said it all, pretty much.  i have yet to see a bishounen anime that rivals OHSHC...I was actually kind of hoping uta would be a little more original...but the creators seem to think that the bishounen make up for the lack of plot development.  i think the music is decent, at least.

it's good to be back on AP.  haven't checked up on comments or updated anything in a while, so i apologize for the late response :)

I'm not even done with the first season yet. But, the great thing is, I have it on DVD! YEAH! But, yeah, Code Geass kicks ass. It's one of my friends least favorite anime though. But whatever.

 

Say, just a quick question, what do you think about my reccomendation(s)?

First I will say that I am really bad at telling what i think about something.. so please keep that in mind :)

Then I have to agree that it wasn't anything special or outstanding and that just like you I loved how all the dishes she made were followed up by the recipe. But I disagree with you about the everyone has to love her. Because through out the manga she is rather disliked by everyone in her class, especially when Sora died and everyone blamed her for it. I also think it was a change that for once the person who had an accident actually died instead of getting better straight away. Like they mostly do. And I also liked that she didnt win the second contest, somehow for me that makes it a little bit more realistic. Okay she won all the other things but.. at least not everything... I don't think the manga was that bad.

Of course there was the mean 'model/populair' girl that didn't like her but I guess a lot of manga's have that one in recently. I am wondering what kind of plot of manga you do like and what you would advice me instead of this one. So what manga('s) is almost perfect for you so to say.

Before I answer your question, I just have to say something. I think we finally found something we can agree about on Skip Beat! That guy is good.

 

Anyway, to answer your question, I LOVE the show. It's my new second favorite anime. That's how much I love the show.
