About mahoganycow
I watch anime in my spare time. I write a review now and then.

I welcome feedback from anyone. If you disagree with something that I say in a review or on a forum, please feel free to send me a message or drop a comment on my profile. As long as you keep it coherent I'll gladly have a discussion with you. Similarly, if you enjoyed a review I wrote, let me know. I have fun writing reviews, but it's also nice to know that they're not just disappearing into the internet without being read.

As far as ratings go, I rate things as more than just a sum of their parts, i.e. my "overall" score for something is not just an average of the different categories. I rate the work's effectiveness in its entirety. Regardless, I think that these numbers are a half-step above meaningless, and so is arguing about the "proper" way to rate something. I wouldn't put much stock into them.

I don't have a favorite genre, nor is there any genre that I won't watch. I appreciate anything that's made with care and intelligence. Comedy, drama, romance, action, sci-fi...you name it.

I haven't listed my "favorite anime" because choosing a favorite anything (song, movie, book) is difficult to do. The favorite characters list is now rotating. Ten slots is not enough.

I loved your review on Sakasama no Patema!

Gymkata | 10-17-14, 3:02 PM
I had to agree with your review of Noein as well. This is a series that seems to get nothing but praise for what should be (on paper anyway) a sci-fi fan's wet dream. The first half, I'd adimit, was very intriguing. But the second seemed so mired in pseudo-scientific techno-babble and specious quantum mechanic theory/contrivance, that I lost all emotional connection to its cast. I think Rahxephon excelled in the area this one failed: its characters always took center stage, even in its most perplexing moments. But my biggest problem with Noein was the head-on collision between its light-hearted SOL and more consequential sci-fi elements. This probably isn't an objectively fair criticism given that they're middle-schoolers, but the contrast was jarring at times--ahem...Atori's transformation. There was some good stuff in this anime, but an equal amount of lost potential, in my view.

Yeah I couldn't take anymore LOL. The teenaged angst-ometer was burning through the red, and the music...uggh. Weird too because I have a wide range in taste musically. Couldn't take anymore. Just not my flavor or something *shrugs*.

Anyway, NICE reviews--articulately written and very thorough. I always look for them when deciding on a show.

Thanks much

I saw your comments on Infinite Ryvius and just had a quick question: Does the music integration get any better as it progresses, because right now it's killing me LOL? I just started this and the characters are ok so far, but the hip hop/rap seems totally out of place, and everything else tinny/simple/uninspired--like the three- note rhythm in the tragic moments of the L.Delta's descent o-O. Wtf? This is mind-boggling because the same composer did Crest/Banner of the Stars, which was fabulous?!

I'm rebuilding my list, but looking at yours it would seem we'd have about 90%compat LOL.

Great taste

The day my kawaii highqualitywoodwhore comes to me is a day for celebration.
Yes, I shall make an event out of it!

Well tell me when your first review is out. I'll be happy to read it and tell you what i thought.

Eastunder | 08-20-14, 11:42 PM
Hey, we only talked a few times before, but i heard from a friend that you got accepted for a writing job at ANN so i wanted to say congrats.

I actually went into the video not knowing who the author was so i went in with a keen interest of hearing what the person had to say, by the end of the video i was just mostly laughing assuming whoever made it was just a troll of some sort. I actually had to watch 2 more videos before i realized it was Roriconfan, and in the other two videos he even indeed pointed people to his review page asking for upvotes, meaning the purpose of the videos are nothing more than attention whoring, one of the other videos was even pathetically a show he reviewed and was on top of the review page but simply wanted to criticize what the person in the second position had to say.

Anyways, immediately i discovered it was Roriconfan, i just didn't care and viewed it as the trolling, i've actually had conversations with him in the past but mostly about him criticizing my reviews for ludicrous reason. I do admit he is a good writer but he'd do himself a favor if he stopped his elitist approach to everything, the sad thing is he actually has a decent amount of people who actually follow and agree with what he has to say.

Hello

Nice Mushishi review

Gotanon | 07-10-14, 8:13 AM
G-give that review back, I worked hard on that...


WAT
You're on Kapo's side?! H-how could you! ;A;

He has been so mean to me lately! Also, he's not the only one who has been mean to me...

I told lpf I didn't want to read Le Petit Prince but then lpf made me an offer I can't refuse. It also seems I'm not the only one lpf has done this to... True story.

That's fine. Gotanon can have all the love he can get. He deserves it.

What's more interesting is how you've improved over the years. You went from being great to being great! Wait....

Kapodaco | 07-08-14, 11:24 PM
And once again, you provide the kind of reviewing that this site so desperately needs. You are truly among this site's best.

Adds Sakasama no Patema to PTW list.
