About AngelsArcanum
Canadian anime fan/greenhorn critic. I follow any anime that interests me regardless of how anyone else sees it and base my judgments solely on my own experience. Genre and demographic are pretty much inconsequential so long as the story is good. I'm always looking to learn more about critiquing or having discussions about anime and games I enjoy. While it may sound pompous from my mouth, (or in this case, texts) I'm a sincere guy with strong opinions and love a stimulating debate/discussion on anime, so feel free to add me up or have a chat.

First legitimate anime I had ever seen was Inuyasha when I was 8 if you don't count Ghibli movies which wouldn't totally lend themselves to being as distinctly foreign as a kid, otherwise, it would be Kiki's Delivery Service (used to rent it all the time when I was 5 but never got around to owning it, and now I don't remember a lick of it). Watching Inuyasha weekday nights at around 8 P.M. on the Canadian channel YTV (Youth Tele-Vision) after learning about it from an old friend. The first episode I saw was the one where Shippo was introduced and he was being pestered by the thunder gods and whatnot, and I was immediately hooked. Going under the assumption that most "cartoons" and stuff on TV in general have books of sorts surrounding them, I looked around on a whim at my local Chapters one day and found the "Manga" section of the store and started delving into the world of anime and manga. Watching the Bionix anime program block (a.k.a the COOL version of Toonami/Adult Swim) on YTV Friday nights as a stepping stone, doing some research online, browsing anime and manga sections of stores, etc. Here I am 10 years later still going strong!

Things I look for in an anime/things I like:

Things that I give demerits for/things I hate:

How my ratings work:
10-A work of brilliance; any flaws are few and minor. Reserved for the best of the best.
9-Short of greatness; a little nitpick or 2 that detracts a bit from the overall enjoyment, but still totally recommended.
8-Exceptionally good; there are some great hooks that make it worth while and excel in some area but are still held back.
7-Very good; there's enjoyment to be had here and it's worth a complete watch or more, but there are things that hinder it.
6-Above average; worth about one complete run possibly as a time consuming romp, but somewhat unremarkable.
5-Mediocrity; there's some value in watching it, but still leaves much to be desired.
4-Below average; maybe some minor noteworthy things worth a look, but a potential waste of your time or something you can't finish.
3-Trash; very little to be enjoyed here, some peripheral or minor factors are saving it from being a complete waste.
2-Crap; There's maybe one element that saves the show from being a 100% disaster through and through.
1-Torture; reserved for abuse, whether one is masochistic or wants to mess with other people.

Current Anime Rankings (Top 50):

Top 5 Favourite Story Arcs:

Banes of my Existence (in descending order with part of my hatred of the first 3 selections stemming from their popularity when weighed with their quality and total lack thereof):

Video Games:
Aside from anime, video games are my main schtick I guess ;P. My favourite genres are fighters and RPGs; here's a list of my all time favourites (in no particular order):

Plus, MonPokes:

Dream Harem of 24 Waifu (lol):

Your recommendations were the best so far I think, thanks for that =), and I have planing to see rahxephon in the current days ...

ClinT- | 04-13-15, 4:30 PM
Okay Thanks =D

ClinT- | 04-12-15, 6:58 PM
OMG Angels Arcanum plz recommend me some stuff because everything I pick seems to be shit and I tired of it.

NotJizzyHitler | 04-11-15, 2:29 PM
I think people hate the last episode so much just cause they went in expecting something continuing the story, its not a particularly good episode(its kind of WTF worthy at the end) but it really isnt all that bad, just whatever, the actual final episode (11) is fucking awesome

also dont worry about the gundam talk, im a gundam-fag and it hasnt been that long since i stopped started the franchise(last febuary,yeah i watched all that gundam in less than a year, im a no lifer)

Ducat_Revel | 04-11-15, 6:10 AM
It hurt to watch

NotJizzyHitler | 04-11-15, 5:36 AM
MS team kind of banks heavily on the 2nd half(also heads up its actually a 11 episode series with a special epilogue episode in ep 12, the real ending is episode 11) Ms team benefits from having one of the most human conflict in the franchise and the tactics used in fights is unheard of in some of the other entries which were just "my mech is more powerful than yours", I was semi disappointed by MS team but its 2nd half really did please me and it was nice to see such a different entry in the series

NotJizzyHitler | 04-02-15, 10:02 AM
you honestly cant really loop around CCA to get to unicorn, its not jsut about char that ties into it theres quite a lot more, besides its only a 2 hour movie its not that big a loss even if its dogshit, plus you cant be a gundam fan without joining in on the quess & hathaway hate train.

NotJizzyHitler | 04-02-15, 6:17 AM
sorry but gundamfag info dump incomming

G-reco actually does get better around episode 9 or so i think, nothing major but things do seem less dull or all over the place, i was gonna give it a 5 until the finale which was just lolworthy

Yeah CCA is probably my 2nd most hated entries, its pretty godawful writing wise and while it features some incredible action i cant enjoy iot from how frustrating the characters and story are, though i have badish news though, CCA isnt something you can really skip, the original few tomino gundam really dont feel like single installments but rather a really long 150 episode series, same goes for ZZ which will actually spoil a shit ton of 079 and zeta which are very good despite their poor aging and sloppiness, that and watching CCA(and the rest of the tomino UC) actually sets up the excellent gundam unicorn which watching without prior knowledge of the entries before it will almost cause a guarenteed drop in potential enjoyment. I really reccomend for that one you just watch the UC as a whole so you see the ups and downs especially cause ZZ actually has some really redeeming qualities but i dont think they would be noticible without knowledge of zeta and 079.

though if you want black sheep definitely give a watch to age, though it sounds like from the non tomino-fags G-reco wound up being worse than it and honestly i believe it, a poorly executed story that you follow is still better than a nonsensical one, plus i hear age's first generation is really good legitimatly and doesnt really go to shit till the 3rd one

NotJizzyHitler | 04-01-15, 6:26 PM
i didnt realize you were watching G-reco, hopefully your enjoying it more than I but man it looks like your watch list of gundam shows is pretty much all the shit tier ones(ostensibly since G-rekt is to my knowledge unknown to how you like it). but all i can say is there is one sure fire thing about G-reco, is its final episode is fucking hilarious and has just left me giddy since watching it.

AgehaMist | 04-01-15, 4:01 PM
cool :] nice to meet you! haha

RoyLegacy | 04-01-15, 4:00 PM
Great taste yo, we even share the same favourites from most shows we've seen.

AgehaMist | 04-01-15, 2:57 PM
Hello! not at all XD i just randomly friend request people from time to time LOL but yea im part of the uber elitist club too, and i thought your name was cool :]

Ducat_Revel | 03-19-15, 2:30 AM

Got them here. Initially I wanted to make a banner of the current team I'm testing, but I got tired and did this instead.

ClinT- | 02-28-15, 2:41 PM
Hello man ! Remember me ? Hope yes because I remember you !
I came here to ask you soemthing Im curious, you're the one who is entering on my list from time to time ? And perchance seeing the same shows I watched because of my influences and things I have said about them, like Sky Crawlers and Magi?

ForgoneReality | 02-14-15, 8:16 PM
Just watched Bobby's Girl and it seemed like something you would like. Checked the scores and sure enough, I was right.

PS, I left a helpful on the School Days review. Figured you'd need all the help you can get on that show, haha.
