Just your standard old-timer who cut his anime teeth on NarutoPokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh.  With that in mind, forgive me if I don't treat all popular anime as mainstream trash.  I generally prefer shounen, comedies, and action/adventures and can do without harems, yaoi, most mecha, and any anime with animal protagonists.  I am a completionist so I find myself almost incapable of dropping an anime regardless of how much I dislike it so, if nothing else, I tend to end up with a full picture of the anime that I watch.  In fact the only animes that I've "dropped" were ones where I happened to catch a few episodes on television and didn't bother following up.  

Despite it falling somewhat outside of my standard tastes, my favorite-ever anime has got to be Toradora!.  I normally don't like romances (anime or otherwise) as I find them too forumlaic and cheesy, but Toradora! is the clever, with well-designed characters and a truly heartwarming story. No matter how jaded you have become Toradora! will have you believing that true love exists once more, as corny as that may sound. Simply put, watching Toradora! is one of those rare experiences that give you a new perspective and legitimately affects you in a deep and meaningful way.  Not bad for an anime.

As for my least favorite anime ever, that honor belongs to Hamtaro. I don't think a reason is really needed there, I mean...  My least favorite anime that I haven't dropped? 07-Ghost.  A decent first episode followed by 20 episodes of some yaoi emo walking around in a church capped off by 4 episodes of hectic nonsensical chaos and a finale that served more as a TV ad for the next season than as any sort of plot builder does not a good anime make.  You'd think that'd be obvious, eh?

With respect to my reviews, I suppose I should I should add a caveat here: I have no intention of writing any further reviews.

You betcha! I'm glad my review was helpful to you! I'll probably write some more at some point, but there's no telling when. I just finished watching Redline...wow. I went to check out the reviews and see if anyone else had already said what I would have said- and they were right on the money- well, aside fromt he two that gave the movie a 6 or 7. 9 or 10 is much more like it. Redline was superb! A must see imho.

Thanks! I have thought about writing reviews, but they are just so time consuming. Answering other people's reviews with a comment just seems to be easier overall, lol. Besides, the formating involved is so cumbersome! I very rarely have much to say, aside from the general views that other people have already posted. I'll try to work up the effort to write a review on Planetes, which I have only just started watching about five minutes from now (12:02am EST - 8/26/2011). TTFN!
