Hello visitor! ¿Qué tal?
Oh how wonderful it is to 'meet' you!
Welcome to my page, as there is not much to see here feel free to read this drivel that I have spewed forth from my keyboard.
I'm just some Brit living in the good ol' south of England; I can see the sea from here, but not really. I have been watching anime as of September 2014 which still makes me fairly new to anime, but I have seen a fair few shows since I started. Even so, there are still so many shows I need to watch (about ten thousand or so).
Why did I start watching anime I hear you not asking me? Due to the increasing frequency at which I started to notice it, not to mention some of my friends had been watching a bit already, I decided to have a look myself. I started with Kill la Kill, the show I had heard of most recently at the time, and that basically plunged me into all things Japanese media.
I have delved into manga a bit too, only barely brushed the surface though. I have liked a lot of what I have read so far, some stand out examples being Sasameki Koto which I found to be a wonderful read, and Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! that I had started due to having thouroughly enjoyed the anime. I'll expand my manga horizons in due time, I have quite a few things to read that I like the look of.
I joined the Anime Planet chat in April of 2015 and was appointed a moderator in August of that same year.
Favourite anime: I have a fair few, in fact I have lists for these sorts of things. Obviously Kill la Kill is one of them:
How I rate: My ratings are a simple representation of my overall enjoyment of an anime or manga.
I set 5/10 or 2.5 stars as the 'neither good nor bad' rating, just mediocre. Generally speaking, shows I would recommend are going to have a rating of at least 7/10 (3.5 stars). It goes without saying, yet I am still going to type it out, that the higher the rating the more I'd recommend the anime or manga in question.
Because I was bored I calculated my average rating. I found it to be 6.10 (to 3 significant figures) at the time I had 399 things rated. That's going to change obviously so I'll just say that my average rating is 6/10 (3 stars) approximately. Let me say that a 6/10 is still a 'good' rating, it's just where my average sits.
Some interesting facts about me: None, har har!
I don't really know what would qualify as 'interesting' but if you want to chat then feel free to leave a comment. Some basic stuff: I live in England, I am a student, some other thing that I forgot, I play games on the ol' pc, and finally I watch stuff like anime which goes without saying since I made an account on this site in the first place.
Anyway that's enough from me. Thanks for reading all my nonsense.

100th anime: Steins;Gate: Fuka Ryouiki no Déjà vu
150th anime: Ghost in the Shell
200th anime: Blazing Transfer Student
250th anime: Flying Witch
(Episode 24 of Lovely Complex was episode 2000!)
300th anime: Haibane Renmei
350th anime: Traveling Daru
2πth anime: Little Witch Academia
400th anime: Princess Mononoke
450th anime: Devilman: Crybaby
500th anime: Daily Lives of High School Boys
550th anime: Kara no Kyoukai Movie 3: Tsuukaku Zanryuu
25th Madhouse anime: Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen
I also decided to keep track of every fiftieth manga too, if I do it for anime I might as well do the same for manga:

100th manga: Philosophia
150th manga: Vampire Hunter Maira
