{First quickly, if you're here for the Dub link straight to Anime-Planets dubbed only catalog or the Dubbed Anime Challenge Link for viewing, on the occasion that Anime-Planet. Com does not have the show available, then you can try the challenge link that I use. If you're still having trouble finding one leave me a comment below and I'll try to find it for you. They are the only two links on the page and are highlighted and underlined. Thank you for stopping by.} Oh, it's 2020 now

(Update: After having the same 2 paragraph bio here for 4 1/2 years . I actually wrote one that explains why I only rate shows in my best unbiased manner, but don't write 10 point reviews  because I'm not an actual critic  just an avid fan of anime)

Dub link( direct link to anime planets full list of dubbed anime catalog. See the Dubbed Challenge Link at the bottom of my bio for the link to, and story of the challenge put on me to watch 1000 dubbed anime series by 2020)

Note: All anime series watched and rated on the My Life on Anime statistics portion of the profile are all dubbed anime series, with the exception of Random OVAs, special release release DVDs Etc, that were never dubbed. 

But there is a very good and quite interesting reason for that. 

Okay, now that I got all that done, here is my old and new Bio. 

Here is my original bio from joining Anime Planet May 2015

May 2015: Huh, Don't know what to write...I do enjoy doing cosplay and AMV's for fun and compititions at Anime Con's and stuff, but mostly when I win.

Cats, Star Wars, Star Trek,  Stargate SG-1  and it's franchise, and, Battlestar Galactica 2004 reimaged which, in my opinion, the greatest live-action television sci-fi show, TV budget-wise and best produced. But that's live action and we're talking about anime cuz this is an anime site  but this is my bio. And other Sci-fi/fantasy stuff like D&D, MTG (Magic), Skyrim, RPG or video games are great too! Astronomy, cosmology, and various Departments of physics are Hobbies of mine but definitely at the amateur level. 

HaHa, well just messing around with my first Bio here. Ask me for, or send me any great shows.

>^._.^<

[well as of 2/8/2019 this is a real bio of me. Things in the Bio, like numbers and time passage, years and future dates, for example. May not get updated all the time. But, the statistics on my life on anime will always be current] Start... 

  The thing is I don't write full reviews. But, I rate every anime I watch. After watching anything for 40+ years I see the limitations of genre and anime is especially redundant in this issue. But that's why my star ratings are so equal. I see new people come onto the page and they give five stars to all their favorite shows. Also, if they are a super noob, say for example, I have seen them 5 star all 10 to 15 they've seen. But after me watching over 600 shows, some shows multiple times, which puts me in the 23,000 episodes viewed range. These are shows I have watched multiple times. These tend to get my highest star markings but I don't mark everything as a five-star because I think it's my favorite or because it is the newest release. I rate them throughout the entire series or season of total story continuity, art, and effects, even original visionary Concepts. Then they get my star rating basis thanks to this site. The shows I have have access to, tend to at least be 3.5 Stars and that's me being unbiased but if you check my watchlist you'll notice things like Fairy Tail or Sword Art Online and many 'MANY' other multi popular anime like FMA Brotherhood or the original still get high star rankings from me. It's got nothing to do with the popularity of the show from the rest of the anime community, some need I have to fit in with groups that often show early signs of the next breakouts, or be swallowed up in the fans mass consensus created by the advertising and marketing departments. It's just simply that they are just good shows.

  Key thing to look at if you are actually using anything I use as a rating system since I don't write reviews is how many re-watches I've done of the shows and I believe that's listed in the website if you click on a user's name at the moment, click the 'watched' tab and list view not grid view and you can see how many times they have watched it and how many Stars they rated them. However, for this instance I must mention Fairy Tail 2018 episode 1-8 have aired dubbed so that's what I'm watching at the moment but I'm not going to jump out and say oh my favorite anime is back! It gets 5 stars automatically. I'm still judging it fairly I've been on this website for many years and just don't have the time or talent to do a full breakdown 10 point review of every anime I watch and I think I'm at 628 shows as far as series goes not including movies. So for me to have broke down each one of those in an unbiased but critical review in a 10 point scale would take another lifetime and I would miss out on what new and improved things are coming out so it's taking me five years to change my bio but I hope that you can understand that I value the shows I've watched already and rate each the best I can. So, here's the breakdown, anything I rate 3 - 3.5+ I believe any anime fans should watch at least once. 

       Okay here's one tricky or confusing part.

 I have put 3.5 in two separate categories at the same time. Why? How? The fix is this, a viewers genre preference. Yes, Anything I put 3.5 falls into must watch once. No matter the genre. But there are some rules to be met before viewers should step out of their comfort genre. A few as a start are like, subject matter, age requirement, story synopsis (example: if the only way they can get to watch is to go to a store and buy a nonrefundable hardcopy and the synopsis isn't of any interest to them. then it has failed to meet the requirements for purchase  and viewings, at least at that time. So add the show to the 'want to watch' tab on their profile  page. I think any 4-5 Stars, someone should watch more than once. Unless they have an idyllic memory or quote-unquote photographic memory because there's things in there to be missed on the first viewing, and I binge watch my anime episodes in full seasons at a time the standard being 1-13 episodes or 25-26 episodes a season. So I took a year to watch all 268 of Fairy Tail (and the 10 eps of Fairy Tail Zero) and  catch up on my favorite live action shows. while I'm making AMV's. So for an entire year the only AMV's that I was making were from Fairy Tail but they've all won in my heart. So of the 42 (PG-13) entries I've won 1st or 2nd Place with the exception of two 3rd place wins, and oddly enough both were set to Metallica songs, over the last 9 years that I've entered AMV'S into a competition at Anime conventions... and it's just a hobby, combinding two of my favorite things. Music and anime. 

HISTORY (1971 - 2019)

I guess I've watched anime for a few years. Like when Starblazers and Speed Racer aired (seems like forever ago) in the US mornings before I'd go to school. [This was in the seventies and both my parents had jobs that started before school opened and drop me off at a daycare center, that drop students off at school in the mornings] In the morning Star Blazers and Speed Racer aired on TV (About 1973 to 1976) and the daycare allowed us to watch these cartoons which at the time weren't known quite as anime yet before loading us on the bus to take us to Public School in Memphis Tennessee. {43 years ago actually is the best math I have to count my first animes I watched aired in the US }. Even at around 5-6 years old these two shows combined had all the features of fiction/ fantasy/sci-fi I needed to fuel my mind. 

>^._.^<

Dubbed Anime Challenge Link ( in summer 2009, I had both returned to home and college. Once I was on break between classes watching some anime. I had several groups of friends that would meet up in the Student Center. Some who just played MagicTG in between classes. However, at times, 8-10 of us fellow MTG players were huge anime fans as well. So much so that 10 years ago, for 3 days in June and 1 Saturday in November an Anime-con for 10 years called Hamacon (unfortunately life still moves forward after college, jobs no longer in the city, wives and, husbands raising children. But for twice a year for 10 years these guys and women set up, coordinated, and ran operations and security  for close to 2,000 to 8000 people depending on the time of year in our City's Convention Center Arena area. 

(I am pretty sure that I finally corrected this next statement. But for any one who did want to read the strike throughs even years later. I'm leaving the original promise that I would edit my bio.) 0

I believe I must have been drunk or something when I wrote the rest of this I'm going to strike through it and leave it here so that I can come back and edit it because, it seems like I repeated the same basic fing multiple times, as well as the fact I was probably using voice to text which isn't always accurate a lot of it is mistranslated typo crazy autocorrect autofill BS or like I said maybe I just have to be drunk that night. Either way I just now noticed it and it's been months since I posted this and I will repair it.

The majority of them volunteered to run a true anime convention. these are the friends that you  meet in life. I would always get asked to volunteer or well asked if I wanted to volunteer even though at the time, I'd been pushing to win  both the Cosplay Contests, which except for the last one, before that I won 1st place in one category or another depending on the character I would cosplay every time. But, primarily I was there to participate in the AMV competitions. I would create one animated music video for each category (cuz I'm greedy, haha). If made one AMV for each category hopefully as least one would win one of category, LOL. But turns out I never had a problem with that after all cause I have entered 42 and they all would end up winning. Except for 2 got 3rd place and ironically they were both songs I use from Metallica (so you know maybe 48's a little old for a cosplay contestant and 1980's Metallica is a little old for the 2010's LOL.

 Rurouni Kenshin was my first 1st place wins in the Cozplay Contest, and I was an Animated Music Video (AMV), I guess you'd say artist, cause I entered 42 (I've made over 60 but to enter they had to be PG-13 or Tv-14 something like that).

But I was very welcomed by these people. They were Organizers, Co-organizers, Security and Volunteers of this AnimeCon we ha twice a year, one 3 day in June and one full Saturday in November. I've just moved back from Florida and besides knowing some of them from college, others aslo went to the same gaming shop I did. Playing D&D, Magic The Gathering, video games and watching anime in the screening room. Well, some people just completely didn't understand anime and why this group of people that we're also anime watching friends of mine were so into the stuff. Most said they tried to watch it the complaint was the subtitles and the distracting noise in the background of hearing a language you didn't understand that they just couldn't get the story and like many people have spoken with just found the whole thing stupid. So there were about 10 people from the Conn discussing how to bring new people to the anime community and anime convention sitting around us at the time. So, I said English Dubbed shows, I had already been showing them in the screening room to people who came with their friends, husbands or wives who didn't play games. However, most of them were Subs only anime viewers, so said that there wasn'tenough EEnglish Dubs to make it worth it, and it sounded like a challenge to me so I told them that I would watch 250 complete anime series all in English dub. And if I could do that then they had to start watching a short list of dubbed animes that I consider my favorite and give it a try and the 10-15 people also at that table all agreed cuz the people at that particular time were all video game and Skyrim fans not just my group of anime fan watchers. Which most of the anime group I hung with were all Subs only watchers so I was even an outsider. Even though I watched both subbed and dubbed I just prefer Dubbed to Subbed as I'm getting older and reading Subs is harder on my TV or computer. Anyway, point being there will always be Subs over dubs anime fans and vice versa that's just the way our Community is in the west or USA. I accomplish the goal quite quickly actually using the link that I've provided here which takes you directly to the website that I watch all my anime and normal American cartoons on. So even with people graduating, dropping out, or plan just moving on. That group of people were friends on my Facebook page. So when I reach 250 I put a list of what I thought the best of those 250 dubbed animes were for them to watch so I had completed the challenge but that wasn't enough for me I decided to go for watching 1000 dub animes before 2020. I'm at 640 right now so that's not going to happen just because that's 6 months from now and I have watched so many dubs that I've caught up to where I have to watch them on a week-to-week relais bases release bases the only difference is thanks to using anime-planet I can track how many times I have watched each series take Fairy Tail for example which may not finish before 2020 otherwise breaking that goal wouldn't be possible but I have watched the first 266 episodes of Fairy Tail 6 times. So I've done that with many of my favorite shows and thanks to the check mark box of times watched on Anime-Planet my anime list I've actually watched over 22,000 episodes which if broken down properly by 2020 would definitely be over 1000 animes series that's based on the standard 13 episode seasons versus the 24 to 26 episode Seasons which most light manga anime are based off of 2 shows like bleach one piece and fairy tale, which are continuously going on as long as the writers are coming up with new stories.  the dub Link at the top of my bio takes you directly to anime planets complete dubbed list for cataloging any other anime that you use on anime planet as a catalog of you'd want to watch haven't watch won't watch and what not. The the link here at the beginning of this paragraph. Dubbed Anime Challenged link, takes you directly to the website where I watch first dubbed anime, subbed anime. So if anyone ever tells you they just can't stand anime because they hate reading subtitles Now you can tell them where to go watch English Dubs

Thank you, and I love you because dial into your profile and I found as a matter of fact I'm already forgot cuz I'm trying to hit 800 series somebody's game Darwin's game so I appreciate you commenting on my Bible I've also join the find your bike program if you'd like to join in you're more than welcome I've already got one or two members and they're watching rise of the shield hero and I'm kind of f bombing them over cuz I'm watching season 2 bungou stray dogs where they're actually watching the genre I prefer it being Stranger in a Strange Land This what I call it call me and tell me their superpowers are not for example I was sent my God. I don't know but I was allowed to keep my cell phone or I was reincarnated as a slime so yeah that's really the ones I'm watching right now so if you want to join us feel free trust me I'm trying to literally and that's why I'm watching stray dogs instead of watching rise of the shield hero with the guy or girl that all that I'm trying to find my buddy with go ahead and join us if you want because I re-watch shit all the time actually considering my 20 almost twenty-nine thousand episodes of views but yet I haven't been able to hit the 800 Mark of series which is why I'm watching, so like my stats are crazy but my goals are obtainable my original goal was set at an anime convention about dubbed anime my 20/20 I blew that crap out of water if you ever want to look at my profile more than welcome because it explains it all and it's very long and I like to ramble which I'm doing now but aren't being the person male or female I don't even care I actually are two people that want to join into the Buddy watch Forum Forum of this websites hell I don't know considering the fact that I have the ability to watch drawbaugh 25% more anime than the normal human being I just want that Forum find your anime buddy to actually be worthy are all so if you would like I am going to watch Rise of a shield hero again as the person or persons that contacted me were basically on like episode 3 or 4 and yeah I'll catch up that in a heartbeat I just dissed new Siri sorry which is probably what I want right now I literally lol

I'm not sure why I would leave myself a comment but anyway point being is I broke my 28,000 episode viewed the other day and I have been doing re-watches of my favorite shows so I am still at 792 or 798 episode series overall... Cough dammit what is aggravating is that the only reason I have not completed 800 is because I am still waiting for the final episodes of season 3 also called well tea but I saw a certain scientific railgun season 3 or a certain scientific railgun t it's got 25 episodes I've watched 21 because that's all they have aired at least the way I watch my anime other words. According to my anime planet as I lift them is that makes no sense to you read my bio anime planet is all my tracking of dubbed episodes I have viewed with the exception of a few Dragon Ball super episodes if you wonder why that doesn't make sense or are just curious read my bio it makes perfect so It can sense then. After 113 episodes of Black Clover I assumed it would be one of the ones to clear me of 800 series and then with 21 episodes out of 25 of scientific railgun season 3 or scientific railgun I should be done and yet for some reason Black Clover stopped at 1:13 M complete but now that I believe there are 139 episodes I'm going to check that out but otherwise I'm actually pissed so that's probably why I am leaving a comment in my own comment section

Yes, I was asking you if you know of a site where I can watch the movie. I have heard Kissanime is good for finding movies/shows that arent anywhere else, but I have also heard that it is sort of a risky site to use, so I try to avoid it. If you have a site that I can use that has a dub that would be great! Thanks. 

MattFisher Jun 11, 2020

Hey Dellsimkin, I just read your post on Quora from April talking about 'I want to eat your pancreas' and where you said you might have the link to a website where I can find the movie? Heres the link to the post if you do not remember: https://www.quora.com/Where-can-I-watch-I-want-to-eat-your-Pancreas. I also browsed your profile for quite a bit and I have to say your are quite impressive, you have watched far more anime than I likely ever will. I am somewhat jealous.

November 22 2019, I finished my 699th Anime Rating on Anime-Planet. (all Dubbed, as it was a challenge given to me at a Anime Con) So, including that I have re-watched many either because a new season would release and I like to start back at episode 1 as a refresher before starting a new season, or that I just like watching my favorite shows again, many I've seen 6 or 7 times. My total Episodes viewed is 23,771. My is to have watched then rate over 700 by 2020 based on the challenge in 2012. From a mixed discussion of how to get new people to our anime world and Subbed vs Dubbed debate at the 3 day Hamacon anime convention in Huntsville AL. The actual challenge it's quite detailed. To add to this single post. However if anyone would like to hear the whole story or requirements and reasons that it came about. I can add it and comments if anyone asks and I believe it's in my bio on my profile but my profile is extraordinary long now considering it was two paragraphs for 4 years when I first joined anime planet. Yes I watch Subs as well but I use a different list for those.
