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.

Hey it's me again.I'm just here to say that i totally agree with you about the question of the harems,it's quite unreal but I normally don't care about that.And School Days deals with  girls that appear to have psychological problems and because of that the girls do everything to keep the boy to herselves and that generates a lot of bad feelings so i can see why most people don't like this anime.I'm not a huge fan myself but i can't say i hate it because there are animes that are so violent that make me sick like higurashiso i kinda like school days.Thanks for reading my message(if u had enough patience to read it) and it's ok to send me long messages since they are so convincing.

Haha, I can imagine the look on the nurses faces when they see you watching something while doing a surgey (hypotheticially speaking if you were to become a sugeon that is). I havnt watched much yet this summer. Speed Grapher was a mind trip to say the least and I watched ragarok online - that was mre annoying then anything due to the constant yelling of the word heal in a very high pitched voice. I have a couple more to watch that I bought down south but this summer has been more of a lazy summer then most.

Ah, thanks, I'm 15 episodes in. I see you have durarara as one of your favorites. I was thinking about watching that soon, how was it? Also, kind of weird question, but how do I post on the forums? Do you have to log in twice? is it the same username and password as my anime-planet account? It won't let me log in for some reason. Could just be that I'm typing my password in wrong. >_>

First of all i gotta say that I agree with almost everything that you've said in your profile and, considering the number of animes that you've watched you must be an expert but you are wrong about School Days. It really has a disturbing end but is deeply connected to the real world,and either way if you browse you will see that this is only one of the many ends of the Visual Novel.Everybody seems to hate this anime due it's end and i gotta agree that it was a bad ending,it was extremelly bloody and the girls were merciless but suited the situation,after reading this big comment you probably are tired but pay attention in what I'm saying.Tragedies have their beauty.Thank you for reading this appeal until the end and i hope that it have changed your mind about tragedies.
