      Hey what's up! I'm like just about everyone around here in that I love anime, but I have interests in many other areas. (mostly reading, writing and gaming) My dream would to one day become a famous and respected writer, preferably to do novelizations, scriptwriting, critical reviews, and/or original stories of many famous manga/video games working full time. I feel the stories of many famous manga/anime/cartoons/comics/games are over-looked simply because there are stigmas against their mediums of origin. I hope to change that notion by creating original stories inspired by anime or manga, quality video content, and personal reviews that readers can empathize with.

Inspirations for my writing: Video Game Industry

- Eric Nylund & Joseph Staten (The two creative minds behind the Halo series from Bungie Era 2001 to 2010)

- Kevin Levine (Creator, Director of System Shock and Bioshock series)

- Marc Laidlaw, Erik Wolpaw, & Chet Failszek (Half Life & Portal series lead writers)

- Todd Howard (Lead Designer, Director of The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind and Skyrim, Fallout 3 and 4)

Inspirations for my writing: Anime and Related Material

- Shinichiro Wantanabe (Director of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo)

- Akiyuki Shinbo & Yukihiro Miyamoto (Creative Director and Series Director of Madoka Magica and the Bakemonogatari Franchise)

- Tetsuro Araki (Director/Episode Director of Gungrave, Black Lagoon, Death Note, and Attack on Titan)

- Seiji Kishi (Director of Angel Beats!, Assassination Classroom, Yuki Yuna is a Hero)

- Mari Okada (Director, Writer of Maquia: When The Promised Flower Blooms, Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine)

Inspirations for my writing: Film

- Christopher and Jonathan Nolan (Director and Writer of The Prestige, Interstellar and The Dark Knight trilogy)

- Alex Garland (Scriptwriter/Director for The Beach, 28 Days Later, and Dredd)

- David Fincher (Director of Fight Club, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl)

- Martin Scorsese (Director of Goodfellas, Casino, The Wolf of Wall Street, and The Irishman)

- Quentin Tarantino (Director of Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Bastards, Django Unchained, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood)

Inspirations for my writing: Fantasy & Fiction

- Brandon Sanderson (Author of Mistborn)   

- Roger Zelazny (Author of The Chronicles of Amber)

- J.R.R. Tolkien (Author of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings).

- Jack Vance (Author of Tales of a Dying Earth)

- C.S. Lewis (Author of The Chronicles of Narnia)

Inspirations for my writing: Critics

- Roger Ebert of The Chicago Tribune

- Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw of The Escapist

- Demolition D ("DouchebagChocolat") of Youtube

- Colin Cowherd (The Herd)

I hope to be amongst the heavy-hitters of the creative pantheon of the world someday. 

A note about my profile:My reviews are meant to be long, arduous, and an in-depth look with my experience relating to an anime and is more a diary than anything...to help myself come to terms with these unique experiences in this somwhat odd medium. And then move on. Not necessarily to advertise a series, or be an objective or critical analysis to "win" over viewers. This profile mostly came about as a result of the "P.A.D.S." [Post-Anime Depression Syndrome; its a thing] As for scoring: the main metric I go by is comparative scoring. So a series will be rated based off how much I enjoyed it compared to other anime. Unlike some of my contemporaries on this site and elsewhere, I don't view a series looking for flaws. In an optimal world, I'd rate everything I watch a 10. (Which, I know is somewhat conflicting with how I score. Just bear with me.) How this profile ultimately will end up, and how I generally limit myself from over-scoring, is how I rank is comparable to the United States education system: a 7/10 is a minimum score to pass, or a "bottom-line passable recommendation". Most of my scores will be around here. Anything a 9 or above is exceptional and I hope to only end up having around ten 9+ scores that will utlimately become my top ten favorite anime. Currently I only have three 9+ scores on this site:

- Steins;Gate (10/10)

- Madoka Magica Film Trilogy (9/10)

- Mawaru Penguindrum (9/10)

I'm open to any and all fellow enthusiasts. I only started writing reviews in the last few years. As a general rule I only write reviews for shows that I've just finished. There are a number of other anime that I would have in my "top ten" and/or a 9+ score (Including titles like Mushi Shi, and Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine) that I refuse to list or review until I've had a chance to thoroughly rewatch them again; preferrably in a binged fashion. I also try to commit myself to writing a review before deciding to take a chance on an anime series- which hopefully will create a more "even" profile where I don't just have universally positive reviews. In any case, thank you for stopping by. Feel free to drop a comment on my profiles or reviews and I'll try my best to respond!

I stumbled across your profile and fell in love with how passionate you are about writing and storytelling in general. I'm a fellow writer myself, so hopefully our dreams of getting published will come true someday <3

Nice to meet you!

Hey, thanks in return for the follow. It's great that there's another person who is also a diiverse fan of sports. I'm not crazy about gridiron football myself, but basketball is a sport I do have somewhat of an interest in, particularly at the collegiate level.

For baseball, it has always been my favorite sport to watch. There's not a professional sports team around here, but there is a Triple A baseball team nearby, so I like to go to the ballpark to watch the team play. Unfortunately because of the pandemic, it hasn't been since 2019 since I saw a game in person.

Soccer, I played it in high school and really enjoyed the sport. Our team was not good at all, but we all worked hard to improve and I have a lot of memories of playing in games and it was just a lot of fun. 

Thanks for the follow again by the way.
