I love anime, and consider myself an anime-enthusiast and enjoyer. I don't identify with labels such as "otaku", but they may apply depending on your definition. I greatly enjoy books, movies and games as well, but you could say that anime is my medium of choice. When push comes to shove, this is where I most often turn for a quality experience. There's something very unique about the medium; the combination of fantastic voice-acting, peerless visuals and fabulous storytelling is what keeps me coming back for more.
Other than anime, I'm into playing old, cherished video games, pen and paper roleplaying, spending time with friends and watching movies, horror in particular. I'm also interested in history, nature, mythology/religion and language. Naturally, I also love music. In addition to anime-related music and J-rock, I love hard rock, metal (especially classic metal), game soundtracks, as well as classical music. I also love artists who are musical storytellers. Some of my favorites include include Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Nick Cave.
I usually don't add one-episode ovas or short specials (3 minute omake etc) that belong with other series, as they tend to just inflate the list and make it hard to navigate. If I've seen a series, chances are I've seen the accompanying ovas as well, even if the list doesn't reflect this.
Here is an estimation of what my ratings reflect:
10: Masterpiece ~ A sublime masterpiece, unforgettable favorites
9: Fantastic ~ An inspired show, nothing but the best
8: Excellent ~ An overwhelmingly positive show with high quality all around
7: Very good ~ A show with several great qualities, often worth re-watching
6: Good (ish) ~ A show which leaves an overall positive impression, worth watching
5: Average ~ An average show, likely a balance of good and bad qualities
4: Mediocre ~ Uninspired, lacking in one or more ways, might still be fun
3: Bad ~ Bland and/or offensively stupid
2: Horrible ~ The worst shows end up here, steer clear! Nothing redeemable
1: Abominable ~ Uwe Boll presents! (Never given, I've dropped anything I found this bad)
I'll add that simply because I've given something a low rating doesn't necessarily mean I didn't enjoy it, nor does a high rating necessarily mean that I find the show to be flawless and beyond dispute. Anything is up for debate, and I like to think I have pretty thick skin when it comes to people disagreeing with my taste in anime.
