~Introduction~

こんにちは (Konnichi'wa) everyone! I am HKBattōsai (HKBattousai). Welcome to my Anime-Planet (A-P) bio page! After many years of utilizing this site for anime reviews, ratings, recommendations, and more, I finally decided to officially join the community.

        

~A Little Anime Background~

I first started watching anime in the late 1990's when I was still in high school. I have always been into Japanese history and culture, but even more so since anime.

When I got to college I met a wonderful woman and friend in Karin Maaka, and the rest is anime history. However, it was not until a few years later that I truly introduced her to the medium. For the longest time it really was not her thing, but that would eventually change. Ironically, she watches more anime than I do sometimes! Plus, somewhere around 2010 I discovered RightStuf (now defunct as of October 10, 2023) and that forever changed the amount of our co-anime consumption exponentially!

My favorite anime of all time is Rurouni Kenshin. It is not the best anime I have seen but it is certainly awesome. It is the main reason for getting me into anime (Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon are two other signifcant reasons as well). Shinta, err, Kenshin's character is an excellent combination of humor, wisdom, courage, seriousness, and deadliness. His Hiten Mitsurugi-ryuu is amazing and is the best fictional sword technique in my opinion.

Amakakeru Ryuu no Hirameki

My A-P anime and manga history include series and movies from 2010 to now, which is the time I really got my wife into anime. I am leaving a few series and movies off my lists because they were watched many years prior, where only watched partially and I cannot remember where I stopped with them, or I missed a few episodes in between. Some examples of pre-2010 anime include Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki, Rurouni Kenshin (first watch), Outlaw Star, Monster Rancher, Sailor Moon and Vampire Hunter D. They were the most common and popular anime shows that were available on TV at the time in the United States. Nearly the same applies to manga as well.

~Favorite Genres & Highlights~

Some Key Notes:
#1 - There will be some main genre crossover
#2 - Each title is filed under the best main genre it represents
#3 - Each title represents all seasons of the series I have watched
#4 - Each title will have an Entertainment Score (⭐) of at least 3.0/5.0, since I have watched some bad ones
#5 - I am not too genre-picky either, typically—these just happen to be my biggest favorites

Josei/Shoujo/Villainess/Romance
                      

Overpowered Main Characters
         

Samurai/Sword Play
        

Idol/Music
         

Baseball/Sports
         

~My Ratings~

When looking at my ratings there are a few things you need to know. First, the ratings are primarily based on how much I am entertained by the anime/manga. Plot and characters can have the biggest impact on the entertainment value, although, a weaker story can be more forgivable if there are excellent, relatable, and well-defined characters in it. Art, animation, sound (music and effects), and voice acting can affect my ratings to a lesser degree.

Second, some of the ratings are given from when I saw the anime a LONG time ago, which means that a few of them may (or may not) fluctuate in score if I re-watch them again.

Third, many of my ratings will average out “3” or higher because I try hard to find anime that is of greater interest to me and higher overall quality. Online sources like the Nihon Review, Anime News NetworkTHEM Anime, Anime-Evo, and most of all, the A-P community help me to accomplish this; the opinions, ideas, and expressions of our community of anime and manga fans is fantastic! However, I can make a poor choice from time to time, including anime I put on in the background, or get stuck watching something I would not have necessarily chosen on my own.

Forth, all anime given a star rating has had at least two episodes watched (and typically more than that) with very few exceptions to that rule, such as movies, single episode OVA's, etc. If an anime has not drawn any interest after two episodes, then it will go on my Dropped list unless I have heard from other viewers/reviewers that it gets significantly better later on. If it is in my Dropped list without a ⭐ rating, then it does not meet that criteria. There are very few anime that I Won't Watch or at least consider attempting.

Lastly, here are two very simple, general guidelines to reference:

My ⭐ Entertainment scores:
≤1 - Awful (no entertainment value, enough said; absolutely no replay value)
2 - Poor (entertained, a little; minuscule replay value)
3 - Fair (entertaining enough to usually finish it; low replay value)
4 - Good (an entertaining watch, even owning; better replay value)
5 - Excellent (entertainment galore - watch it, buy it, you won't regret it; typically the highest replay value)

My anime/manga review scores:
≤3.4 = Torturous! Avoid at all costs unless you are sadistic, masochistic, or both
3.5 to 4.9 = Tolerable, most of the time
5.0 to 6.9 = Most anime and manga falls into this category
7.0 to 7.9 = Still flawed, but definitely good
≥8.0 = Could be amazing, but if not who cares! It's still a must see or must read

Side Note:  Do your best to never overhype any anime or manga. Otherwise, you decrease the chance of truly enjoying it to at its fullest since you may be hyper-critical about everything. That is just my opinion and a suggestion.

📝 My Anime Reviews 📝

I do write reviews for certain anime and manga, more so since April 2019. Here they are below, if interested. Constructive criticism is always welcomed and appreciated. Lastly, a superscript (¹) denotes an old review that does not have the added Achievement Score. Please see "♛♕ Special Profile Updates ♕♛" just below the "📝 My Manga Reviews 📝" for additional details.

📝 My Manga Reviews 📝

♛♕Special Profile Updates♕♛

🆕 January 2018:  2017 was collectively the "Year of Anime" for Karin Maaka and I, amassing a total of 1,562 anime episodes combined (961 for her, 601 for me). That is the most for the both of us. If this keeps up, her personal episode count will exceed mine! 🆕 January 2020 Update:  2019 became our new "Year of Anime" for Karin Maaka (670) and I (1,060) as we collectively watched 1,730 episodes, beating our previous record by 168.

🆕 October 2018:  All reviews have been updated to include the Entertainment Score (anime) and Enjoyment Score (manga) as part of the Overall score calculation.

🆕 July 2019:  Retroacting to the start of 2019, I am personally classifying an anime series as consisting of five or more episodes and/or being 120 or more minutes in total length. This will affect select anime placement on certain custom lists I have. The only exceptions to this rule are when an anime is still listed as a "TV" or select listed "Web" series. I Can't Understand What My Husband is Saying (TV) is counted as an anime series, where as Castlevania is not since the first season is only four episodes in length. 🆕 March 2023 Update: Retroacting to the start of 2023, all OVA and Web series will be put on my "Anime OVA and Specials I've Watched" list unless they total four or more episodes and 100 or more minutes in total length, unless stated otherwise using my own discretion. If an OVA/Web is already on that list and I re-watch it, it will still be counted only on that list and not the new custom list trackers I create every year. For whatever reason, I always complicate this portion of my anime and yearly tracking. This will hopefully, finally solve this self-made conundrum.

🆕 July 2019:  Another couple of changes are being made to the Anime reviews. First, I will be including a suggested Age Rating based upon my own opinion. Second, I am now including an Achievement Score, which has the potential to impact the Overall score. The first review to feature this is Myriad Colors Phantom World. Here is the breakdown:

Achievement Level:  Expectation (Overall Impact):

Age Ratings:  Minimum age and older:

For anime reviews a TV- will prefix the rating (i.e. TV-6+) and for manga reviews R- will prefix the rating (i.e. R-A).

🆕 August 2020:  I continuously attempt to refine my review scoring system to create as accurate a review as I can possibly write. Beginning on August 1, 2020, two significant changes are being made to my reviews. First, all future ones will consist of a weighted average system, thanks to my recent review of No-Rin. Second, all past reviews will be updated to the weighted average system. A superscript (¹) next to them means they do not contain an Achievement Score. A superscript (²) next to them means that they originally have an Achievement Score that has been recalculated to the new system.

The review categories will account for the following weighted percentage points:

~A Little Non-Anime~

I want to share a little more about myself by making this a part of my bio page, while not taking away from all that is anime and manga. I have many other interests/hobbies and always open to trying new things. I am a former musician who once played the piano, guitar, and drums, with the latter being the longest at more than 12 years. My favorite drummer is Danny Carey. Music is probably one of the very few things that is more important to me than anime. My favorite artist is Tool and my favorite genre is progressive rock/metal.


I am a former athlete and thoroughly enjoy sports in general. My favorite sport is Baseball. The New York Yankees are my favorite team and my all-time favorite player is Tino Martinez.

Another thing I want to share about myself is my video gaming life. I've noticed LOTS of A-P users are also big time gamers. In fact, many of my A-P friends are definitely into gaming. Here is my list of all-time favorites games (gaming system), in order:

  1. Borderlands 2 (PS3, then PS4)
  2. Legend of Zelda, The (NES)
  3. Diablo 2 (PC and PS4)
  4. Kingdom Hearts (PS2, then PS3, then PS4)
  5. Ninja Gaiden/Ninja Gaiden Sigma (XBox, then PS3)
  6. Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle (Mobile)
  7. Grand Theft Auto Online (PS4)

 

That's it! I used to have more listed, but decided that I was getting carried away with all things me that are not anime and manga. 

~Supporting anime-planet~

Support anime-planet! There are a number of different ways to do so. Click >here< to find out how. It's a no brainer!

My own personal way of supporting A-P is being a for over five years (August 2017-). What does that mean? For me specifically it means that I am co-responsible for making sure People (formerly) and Characters are added and updated accurately and appropriately. Seasonal anime I was, am, or will be directly responsible for while they air:
[] = seasonal claim totals

Anime I was originally responsible for but ended up not moderating for a variety of reasons (this list is mostly for my own reference):

Plus, I pitch-in on acquiring anime screenshots and cover images, providing anime tags, and writing synopses when possible. Some projects I gladly provided additional contributions to were Fairy Captivity, The (everything), My-Hime (updated everything; added missing VA's and characters; provided screenshots), Night Raid 1931: The Shipboard Shoot's Conclusion (synopsis; anime cover image), and Strike the Blood (TV, OVA, II) (updated/added characters and VA's; screenshots for OVA and II)

More or less, whatever >this< person asks me to take care of, I gladly do so. After all, she is my senpai and she always has my back (and likewise). I am quite fond of our online friendship.

~Final Thoughts~

>Anime-Planet Code of Coduct<

Newer A-P Members:  Please feel free to ask me for anything, or just go >here< if you need assistance of any kind. Other than asking any seasoned A-P member it's probably the best place to go.

Thanks for checking out my bio page on A-P! I am open to comments and suggestions any time. If any one does message me on my profile I will respond back. Someone takes the time to do so, then it's only polite for me to reciprocate. You can find me on the forum >here< as well, although I am hardly on it anymore.

Lastly, for anyone who wants to chat and get to know me and other people on A-P more, I have a small community of anime, manga, and gaming fans on my own Discord server. Just converse with me on the A-P forum >here< and I can send you a link to it. さようなら (Sayōnara)!

That's a fair point. I do think RK is a good anime. I do wish that more people gave old anime a chance. It depends on their taste, to be honest. People tend to lean towards the newer version if a newer adaption is more manga-accurate or has more modern animation. I definitely prefer older Sailor Moon. Crystal has a more modern animation style, but I don't care for it. I like the OG animation style better. I think there are exceptions to people preferring the remake to the original or vice versa. I prefer FMA '03 despite most people preferring FMAB

That's true. I look forward to shows with a good cast of characters

All good characters. Horrid villains are great characters. Side note: Have you seen the new RK anime? I haven't

That's fair lol. I've got time lol
