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.

haha well im currently watching hetalia.  it's sooooooo funny, but I can't really find the time to watch it anymore, what with schoolwork and all.  episodes are 5 minutes long i think, but there are many of em. i recommend them 20x over.

i can see why you like skip beat! i haven't watched it before, but the main character seems to be one that'd I'd be a fan of.  I watched a bit of shakugan no shana, and i have to say it was pretty darn bad.  although the badass teenage fighter girl was a nice touch, that male lead really pissed me off.

Yes. I would reccomend the Hellsing anime. Preferably dubbed. But, this is just me we're talking about, so, don't blame me if you don't like it. Also, I can site 1 major difference. You, like Skip beat! and I personally HATE IT! But, I do think we can be good friends still.

Haha wow thats so cool. I loved Pokemon when I was younger too! xD Its funny how when I was little, I had no idea what I was watching, I just liked the cute little characters jumping around and fighting each other.

Yeah I have to admit the second half of Death Note did not even compare to the fist half! Once they killed L off the series just went down hill. I think It moved a bit to fast in my opinion. Like one minute hes a high school and than its 7 years later, and hes thinking back.. "Hmm.. I remember High school." Lol.

Well for my favorite anime I'd have to say.. Code Geass. (WHICH I HIGHLY RECCOMEND!) It really is amazing. Much better than Death Note. Uhm for a manga I would have to say either Vampire Knight or Dengeki Daisy. They are both simply amazing. I loved both of them and the art work was awesome.

For a few of my other favorites, I would have to say..

Clannad- Hilarious, beautiful, makes me cry.

Vampire Knight- Hot Vampires running around.  Really cute.

Fruits Basket- GAH! Zodiac Animals, and hot guys xD Hilarious. Sweet, and even a bit tragic. Amazing story line.

Well I recommend every single story up there if you haven't seen them already, all of them really are great.

Whos you favorite anime character? Is their one or a few that you really like?

Haha. I know what you mean. I just started reading manga not to long ago. I love it though! :) I wish I could read it more but I hate reading it online for some reason, so I have to buy them to read them. I love watching an anime and then reading the manga to it. I love to spot out the differences. xD.

I first started liking anime because of a few friends of mine. Actually I had been watching and enjoying anime for a very long time. I just had no idea what it was. Ex. One of my favorite shows was naruto when I was younger.

Anyway at first I was a bit unsure if I wanted to get into anime or not. But my best friend forced me to watch OHSHC with her, and I loved it. I have to admit that at first I just thought it was a show with a bunch of gay guys but I realized that most of them were straight. lol. Anyway the second anime I watched was Death Note, and that really hooked me onto the idea of anime. Now I do realize that not all animes are as good as Death Note and OHSHC, I still love it anyway. 

Anyway Its very nice to meet you. I love meeting anime fans like me :)

Whats your favorie anime/manga? Any suggestions?
