Oooh so many awesome recommendations ( ⋂‿⋂’) thank you, it is greatly appreciated!! Although my "to watch" list is starting to get dangerously long now... so much anime so little time...

I agree absolutely with your comment. There is nothing that puts me off a series more than a lot of gratuitous anything, whether it is violence, sex or whatever else. In large doses it makes something a "hollow affair", like you said.

Anyway, you're welcome for the feedback, it is always nice to read an intelligent and well thought out review of something (negative or positive) and yours definitely fell into that category IMO. I will read through some more of your reviews too :)

P.S. Can I ask what your profile pic is from?

Just stopping by to say I really enjoyed your Shigurui review. I quite like a bit of brutal violence and gore if it serves a purpose, so it was really helpful that you called this out as simply being gratuitous and without any real substance. Needless to say you managed to steer me away from something that was about to find its way onto my Plan to Watch list... thank you xD

Read your review on mushishi, loved it. I dislike how the usual method of review that people go about is sectioning off their text with "story" or "characters" or "animation".

I love how in your review an aspect rarely seen in others, you just simply talk, you just try to describe the experience that is the anime as detailed as you possibly can.

Simply put, you write your reviews in such a way that it feels as if i am reliving the anime again just reading your text, i truly appreciate this, thank you. Will go searching for more of your reviews if there are any.

If it wasn't for that chemistry, the story wouldn't work for 26 eps, that's for sure.
Haha, it looks like we have similar impressions about other shows as well - I was surprised to find someone who shares an opinion about Paprika, Shinsekai yori and Mirai Nikki. I couldn't even pull myself to watch the latter. I'll keep an eye on your list, you've got nice tags too :)

Hey there. Nice review of Infinite Ryvius, I feel the same about most parts of the show, but the characters. I don't think they get the development they deserve, but couldn't agree more about the music and the general handling of the story. Cheers

Have you watched the second season? I think it builds on very well from the first and indeed the manga goes even further.
NotLethalWeapon Oct 13, 9:25 PM

I won't let it, don't worry.

I see you recently watched Chihayafuru! How did you find it? Personally, even though it has very romanticist perspectives, I think it's such a strong character-driven show.

Way late on the reply, sry. The amount of anime I watch has decreased drastically in the past couple of months, but I really appreciate you giving your detailed thoughts on those series, and if I ever get around to watching them when I watch them I'll def let you know what I think.

btw I did end up finishing HxH. The show had one redeeming quality, but it really wasn't worth the 148 eps imo! Makes me a bit apprehensive about checking out YYH, but if I ever get in a shounen mood, YYH is one of my most likely choices in the genre.

Can I be the guy who puts KnK's script through a paper shredder?

Your Shigurui review is totally outrageous! You are like horse with blinkers, hard entrenched in your own little world of how Anime shoud look like and which topics it should deal with and anything outside your comfort zone you stubbornly turn down with terms such as, and I quote, ''exceedingly gruesome gore'' (is there any other kind?!?), ''manner of violent sexual predations'' (whatever that is?!?) and so on... A little further you actually come close to experience a heavenly enlightenment with, I quote again, ''I don't believe that art is under any obligation to be shiny and happy'' (hallelujah), but you utterly fail to comprehend the meaning of what you've said and resentfully continue to complain about the absence of, quote, ''high production values'' (wtf?!?), ''outdoor gorgeous backgrounds'' (yap,land of milk and honey), enchanting ''characters'' (of course laddy-Hitler never existed), attractive ''facial features'' (nor did/do ugly people), ''aesthetically pleasing designs'' (LOL), ''fluid animation'' (OMG,what if that was intentional) etc. Surely-having your head pushed so deep in your ass you couldn't come to any other conclusion than, quote, ''it feels like the result of one big case of writer's block'' (and you rated it with 4)!?! I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be offensive,but sure feels that way, doesn't it? Perhaps your review is also, towards both - producers and us,viewers,who find Shigurui one of the best Anime ever?! I can agree that everybody has his own opinion but MAL community and certainly I expect, that one who writes reviews possesses a certain width, which can only come with age, experience, with degree or two from Social Sciences and Fine Arts, who attended hundreds and hundreds of exhibitions held in galleries and last but not least-have pronounced interest in Japan, its history, culture and Art. As someone who meets all of the above, I find your review on Shigurui simply...

I am very honored to be blessed by the heavens. However, I'm sorry to say that I lied. "Mantis" (which was supposed to be illustrative of my IQ) was a euphemism for "flower". I'm actually a flower, and kind-hearted Lethal labeled me "mantis" to ease the pain. I am at least glad to know that I am a beautiful flower.

How is one a cow and Shiki Ryougi at the same time? Are cows actually the original bearers of the Mystic Eyes? Are you a mahogany-colored cow, or a cow made of mahogany?

I am not on cocaine although I may be a mantis

Don't listen to this KanadeSong guy/girl. she/he has an IQ equivalent to a mantis on cocaine.
