A poor student in North Carolina (life update: no longer in NC and not a poor student). I tend to be pretty particular in the anime I choose, so I usually like what I watch. I'm also forgiving in my opinions about anime, if I feel like a show does something particularly well I can overlook other misgivings (looking at you, Gundam Seed and Twelve Kindoms). I also tend to enjoy the more serious shows, but I'm not past a good dose of comedy.
I also must say that I deliberately seek out terrible shows. For some self-defeating reason I find these hilarious, no matter how painful. Seriously, how did I watch all of Shakugan no Shana?
Outside of anime you'll find me tending to school. I have lots of hobbies, ranging from being a fencer (for >10 years now), to Judo, target shooting and plenty more.
.5 : Extrordinarily bad. Made me extremely angry about its stupidity.
1 : Extremely bad. You must dislike yourself actively.
1.5 : Very poor. Often outright nonsensical, probably ugly, just generally not good.
2 : Poor. Below average, with a few major flaws.
2.5 : Mediocre. Typically average with a few significant flaws.
3 : Completely average, no stand out qualities either good or bad.
3.5 : Above average. Average, but has some likeable qualties.
4 : Good. Overall interesting, but is lacking in some sense.
4.5 : Very good. Extremely high quality, overall consistent and enjoyable.
5 : Wonderful. High quality and consistent plus I personally found something special here.
So I've started writing reviews. I only intend to review shows that I've watched fully, excepting ones that are split over multiple seasons- I'll probably review the seasons separately. That's OK, though, since I tend to watch enough stuff to get pretty broad coverage across a lot of genres. For the technical part of the review I do my best to stay objective, while in the summary and conclusions I'll be more into describing whether or not I enjoyed a show.
I'm also endeavoring to review some obscure and/or terribad titles, so if that's your thing check 'em out.
When assigning scores, I assign the individual technical scores objectively. The final composite score, however, might include some influence from whether or not I enjoyed the show, so it won't just be the average of the others. The review scores I give also might not match the score given on my profile as I consider different things for a review versus a rating.

You're funny dude.
Hello there! :) Btw, I liked reading your "about me" introduction. I'm also pretty picky when it comes to what anime I'll choose to watch next ;P
