I am a fan of any sort of film medium. I am not an art critic but as long as I can see whats going on and the story is written well, I dont care.

My very first anime was Devil May Cry. I had just finished the first game and I thought that the anime looked cool. It is still on my top anime that I have watched so far (Coincidentally, all of the games in that series except for 2 and DMC: Devil May Cry are my favorite games of all time). Dante is a freaking badass.

I rely on a lot of outside recommendations on what I should watch and my list reflects that. I use Anime-Planet for the purpose that it was created: to recommend anime and to keep track of watched and currently watching anime. Sometimes I will spend a little bit of time away from a series and then come back to it but I forget what episode I was on.

I like a lot of goth shows, movies and anime. Theres just something about the dark side that draws me in. But dont let that be a reflection on my character. The darkness is just so interesting is all. I also like a lot of shows that have deeper meanings. XXXholic is a good example of this.

When it comes to watching anime, I dont just watch the first episode of the series and base all of my judgements on that. I usually wait about 3 or 4 episodes before I decide if I will continue or not. As the scholars say, "Patience is a virtue."

Whenever I rate an anime I usually start with how much I liked the anime and then take half a star off if I don't feel like the anime was given a conclusive ending, if the anime wasn't developed enough, if it had potential but didnt follow through, or if an anime might not be accessible to non anime viewers. For example, I loved Elfen Lied but felt that the ending wasn't conclusive enough. That being said, a lot of the anime that I really enjoy and have on blu ray have been knocked down .5 or 1 stars due to the above criteria

I dont really read a lot of manga but I will if I like a series enough. I dont really plan on reading all of my "want to read" list. I just wanted to have some options for the future.

I have been watching the Sword Art Online franchise a lot lately. This has grown to be my favorite anime to the point where I have bought most of the video games based off of it, bought the blu rays, and am reading the light novels. It has also set a high bar in anime for me going forward.

I also think Attack On Titan has redefined what anime is. Going forward, it will definitely be the anime I recommend to people wanting to get into anime but don't know where to start. It's also a good anime to convince those that don't like anime that this form of entertainment has merits. I can't wait to start the final season.

My 3rd favorite anime has to be the When They Cry franchise. That includes Higurashi and Umineko. The only episodes from that series I dont like are the first 3 Kira OVAs.
