Hi there, folks! I've been an anime fan since I stumbled across Naruto in 2009. I've since found that I actually enjoy genres besides action. I'm particularly fond of sports anime. (Like Kurobas, not the drama-filled Free!) That said, my favorite anime is Gungrave, an action-filled mafia sci-fi delight.
My star ratings are subjective. This shows most obviously when an anime is technically good, but offends or bores me. Also, I'm harsher with my ratings than I was in my first year or two, so something I gave 5 stars in 2010 might now only be 4 stars (or even 3). And sometimes the difference between 4.5 and 5 stars might just be my mood that day.
Other Places to Find Me:
Beneath the Tangles, where I write about anime and my Christian faith. Yes, really. We like to talk about anime, manga, visual novels, and religion at BtT—sometimes all in the same post. I met the founder here in the Anime-Planet forums way back in 2011, and that connection led to me joining the website four years later. ^_^
