My real name is Willow. At sixteen years of age, I am an avid watcher of classic Shounen anime. My preferred genres include fantasy and adventure, but as long as a sufficiant plot and well developed characters are present, I can enjoy basically any sect. I attend nearby conventions regularly. My two favourite anime are Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto and Yoshiro Togashi's Hunter X Hunter. I suppose you could say that I'm drawn to mainstream anime, but that fact is simply because I have a lot of free time, and mainstream series generally have higher episode counts. I tend to grow solomn at the conclusion of an excellant anime, like many others also do. As a completely ramdon sidenote, I am currently learning how to speak Japanese, and am an aspiring novelist.

My Rating System For Reviews

10 = Absolute and utter masterpiece (It will never happen)

9 = Masterpiece with minor flaws

7 - 8 = Above average/highly recommendable series

5 - 6 = Average

2 - 4 = Poor

1 = Absolutely horrid

I may use these terms in my reviews...

Plot story = A story that focuses on the plot or the setting more than the characters. Basically, in a plot story, the characters are simply tools with which to tell the story. More than often, plot stories feel rushed and stressed, but every now and then comes a plot-story that doesn’t include these elements. Two examples of plot stories are J.R.R Tolkien’s, The Lord of the Rings and Tite Kubo’s Bleach

Character story = A story that focuses on the characters more than the plot. Basically, in a character story, the plot is interwoven with the character’s developments (usually the main protagonist’s or main antagonist’s). Two examples of character stories include Natsuki Takaya’s Fruits Basket and Yoshiro Togashi’s Hunter X Hunter.

Now, not all series’ fit into these two categories. There are some that manage to fill both, and deliver fairly equal amounts of plot and character development. This variety of story contributes to my favorite genre, and includes series’ like One Piece, Rurouni Kenshin, Harry Potter, and Naruto.

no dude just no you cant rate shippuden a 5 and say you want to become a novelist well you still can become a novelist but you wont like naruto as much once you do become a novelist. You will realise how terribly written the series is the only thing carrying it is feels and fights which isnt even that good im so confused as to how someone who wants to become a novelist LIKES NARUTO AND why do you not like edward? he is easily the best protagonist that actually learns mentally and physically he develops unlike naruto and if you are fan of itachi i have lost all faith in you, liking a plot device character and not knowing that HE IS A CHARACTER THAT BECAME GOOD NOT FOR THE SAKE OF THE NARRATIVE BUT FOR THE SAKE OF SUBVERSION and to ruin sasukes character even more and. to become a plot device.
