I like that you are a fan of Clannad, so bonus points there. You also seem to make pretty good use of the rating system though I wonder if, once you've seen more anime, you'll keep all those 10's. I say this because I had a lot of 10's when I first got into anime and then I changed my rating system.

I also have to say that you should try out some older anime series since most, maybe all, of your completed anime is from the 2000's. I noticed that you have NGE on your PTW list and I think you should give that a try considering you enjoyed You are (NOT) Alone.

As for your list layout, I suggest that you make the font a little bigger. 7/10

Actually, you seem to have similar tastes to me as most of the shows on your favorites are some of the first anime I watched when I first joined MAL.

Nick_xD, you list could be a little more readable, I'd make it bigger or bolder. Rate things before you've finished them, it seem like I'm the odd man out on on all this trend, well whatever. You rate your drops pretty high, 9 for Naruto, though I can figure that one out. In fact you rate everything pretty high. You only seem to watch new stuff, you might want to break out of that.

6/10

5757, 81.3% compatibility, you're off to a terrible start. List is too bright for my old man eyes, but at least I can read it. You don't rate things you haven't finished, I had begun to think I was the only one. You seem to have wathed Code Geass R2 but not R1, is this so kind of mistake. Your list is pretty must the modern anime starter deck, maybe you should want to break out a little maybe watch some older and/or unpopular stuff.

7/10

ShadowbladeEdge (note: if I'm late, I'm late.)

You have an average rating of 8/10, which is a little high for my tastes. Having compared my ratings against your own, it appears you often give at least one point more than me, sometimes two. And, where as I have been critical(ish) of the likes of Code Geass R2, you haven't.

You throw 10/10's at titles I wouldn't. I don't get how you could've given S2 of S&W top marks, taking the flawed second half into consideration, for example. I'd underatand if it was S1, but S2? That I don't get.

You could do with more in the way of serious titles on your list. You haven't even watched Wolf's Rain yet, and there's no Kare Kano? That ain't good.

On the whole, your list isn't bad. The lack of a background makes browsing down it dull but it's easy on the eyes. It's just that you're missing some key titles required of being watched by every anime viewer and rate higher than me.

Our rating scheme seems to be rather similar, with our score for the Kara no Kyoukai being the exact same except for the second movie. I also wonder if that 10 for Death Note will stay there after you finish LOGH, you'll see why I say that in the later stages. Also, I guess we can agree that Whisper of the Heart is better than Spirited Away.

I personally dislike dropping series, but if you don't like it I guess you don't like it. But, I don't think you should rate a dropped series. Especially when you've only seen a few episodes. I'm sad that you dropped Maison Ikkoku, as it is turning out to be one of the best written romances I've seen. I think you should give it another shot.

I like how you don't give out 10's that often, but I disagree with all those series that I've seen. Also, you have a few unrated series.

Increase the size of your font, otherwise your list layout is fine. What's the wallpaper from? Bakemonogatari?

I'll give you a 8/10. This thread was great idea by the way.

Your list is kinda hard to read due to the colour clash, but anyway, you have watched many anime. I noticed your rating for Death Note was an 8 (I think it deserves a 10 though the manga's better).

First of all, watch more anime and then tell me if you still think DN is worth a 10. Don't get me wrong, it is a good show but it lacks a few things that make me give a show a 10. I will say that at least you haven't handed out 10's like candy, so far. That's always a plus for me.

Honestly, though it's hard to rate you when you haven't watched much anime. I can totally agree with you on the rating of Code Geass, and I definitely agree that DN is a much better anime.

One suggestion I'll make is to watch older anime and don't be afraid to check out different genre's besides shounen. I see you've already seen some films like Whisper of the Heart and that's certainly a good start.

As far as your layout, I like it. Especially your background. And I changed my layout based on your suggestion.

I'm currently watching more anime but I don't have much time. Well, regarding older anime I have watched Slam Dunk and Pokemon. I viewed your list again and the background is the same (perhaps it hasn't changed yet).

For the record I like R2 in an ironic sense, go here and see my post for the only way I can convey how I feel about it, through metaphor. You right though, it's completely non-critical.

First if any of thes flaws refer to the mercantilism of the show, that's not why I watch it. I don't know how satisfactory this'll be, but that's how it goes. The thing about S&W is I liked it plenty enough, in case that 9 didn't convey that, but it didn't have that intangible spark that it need to be a 10. Now season two comes along, and it's got the same stuff going on as the first, but it's oozing this charm that I found just so endearing. I think the fact that me just thinking about it right now makes me smile should be a satisfactory explanation for it's position on my list.

Never seemed like my thing, but I'll read up on it.

I'll probably end up reading the manga instead. In fact I''ve read the first volume, not sure if it's on my list off hand, I haven't followed up though because it didn't really grab me as something fantastic, no bad or anything though.

I blame my poor time management skills.

Now to your list. As intensely lovely as Senjougahara is, the contrast the contrast between her and you black background is taxing on my eyes. Maybe I should just put "You rate things before you finish them." in my sig. The only thing that really stands out to me is a 1 for Riding Bean. I not sayin' it's the greatest anything ever, but a 1 is pretty harsh.

8/10

As an aside your average score is 7.2, a mere half a point lower than my 7.7, for what it's worth.

Since when was there a specific list of "Watch all of these anime series or you are noob"? Besides, not all males are into shoujo series like Kare Kano for instance.

It's because I haven't watched all of it.


Then your giving it a 1 based on the one or two episodes, not for the whole series.

Did you read any of the prior posts? I don't give a shit that she doesn't like Lucky Star, I was frowning upon the fact that she graded something(s) prematurely. Maybe you should brush up on your English, broha.


Giving at least 4 posts upon this one subject isn't really frowning upon. Nice English too, brotha. I don't give a rat's ass about English on the forums. Check my English on my papers, maybe then I'll give a fuck.

Come on man, read ShadowbladeEdge's post. He's saying this because nii-nii dropped and rated it a 1. And, for the record, I disagree with him on a few things but I do agree that you shouldn't drop a show at two episodes and give it a 1. Though, I can sort of understand nii-nii's reasoning it doesn't mean I have to agree with it.

But, anyway cartier-ngo it's hard for me to rate you when alot of your anime is stuff I haven't seen. Your list is pretty easy on the eyes and you seem to use the full spectrum of the rating system, which is always a plus in my eyes. I don't know if anyone else has asked you this but do you rate critically or based on enjoyment? Because I think your ratings could be either way.

Otherwise, I'm gonna make my usual suggestion and say check out the older stuff. And, hell, check out really bad anime like Apocalypse Zero or MD Geist II if you want to see how bad anime can really be. But, only do this if you really enjoy anime. Otherwise, it'll be a waste of time.

Edit: Awesome, I'm late.

@ShadowBladeEdge, fair enough you have some pretty good points on your rating system and such. And, yes, technically Rebuild is better. But, I don't know, it takes alot more than that to impress me and I just couldn't get over them taking out the brilliant, which is purely my opinion, episode 4. And, well, we'll just have to agree to disagree on whether or not the first half is better than the second half for NGE.


Too little time to watch anime. I'm trying to get as much done as possible. I watched more than what I listed, but those were like 3 years ago and I can barely remember anything (Like Rurouni Kenshin, Gundam Wing, Pokemon, Etc).

Edit: Camavan's list:

Nice list of animes. Are you waiting for the missing gintama subs or did u already watched up to episode 180 while missing some parts? Don't have too much low ratings so you probably pick shows that you really liked. A surprise rating for Death Note. Happy you watched Bacanno. Upset you dropped One Piece :(.

We've only seen 18 of the same titles, so it's difficult to compare and contrast.

The small amount you've seen did highlight your rather bizarre Narto ratings. How anyone can rate the first series, covering the best of the manga and going at a decent chapter-per-episode pace, 3/10 and its abomination of a sequel 5/10 is beyond my understanding. I can only assume you hated Tony the Tiger or enjoy mental torture.

You strike me as a more critical person than myself. Or, at the very least, you think of numbers a little differently. No 10/10's yet and a number of 1-3/10's suggests you aren't going to enjoy a lot as much as me, or the small army of raving fanboys that inhabit this place.

Go down my list and try some of my 9-10/10's ASAP. If you still don't have a 10/10 after that, all hope is lost. You might as well quit while you're ahead before you experience Melody of Oblivion.

And, finally, your list design is dull. Changing the font colour to red doesn't make it better.

While I do agree LotGH is excellent, and I may very well award it 10/10 IF I ever find the motivation to finish it, I don't get why people think they should lower their other ratings because of it. If you're objective with your ratings - not voting 1/10 or 10/10 without good reason - then there shouldn't be a need to go on a rating editing spree.

It's like saying you should change all of your movie ratings after watching The Godfather.

In terms of story and characterization, LotGH is top draw. No doubt about that. And I'm sure it'll only become even more epic as the story comes full circle. But it's draining to watch. There are so many names and faces to remember it can be a struggle, and its length makes it difficult to push on with. If I do give it 10/10, it might be the most boring 10/10 series I've rated.

As for Death Note, I'm a DN fanboy. DN is my number two, but in terms of sheer fanboyism it's my number one. I have, in the past, made a LotGH sized message or two to someone who rated it lowly. Even though I'm well aware of all its flaws - me having read the manga and watched the anime a few times - I love it too much to rate it lower than 10/10. In my mind it's the closet thing to a perfect manga adaptation; one with excellent visuals, the best soundtrack ever, the best voice acting performance ever and plot fixes.

Death Note is special in my mind, quite possibly because I watched it weekly from the start. It was like a drug for me, back then - I'd stay up until 2 AM for the sub.

If I wanted to be anal, I could reverse question your NGE 10/10ing. In your mind, DN is 8/10 worthy. In my mind, everything NGE is 8/10 worthy. I watched it when I was green and, though I thought the characterization was very good, the lack of story details and terrible ending prevented me from ever loving it.

I only rate incomplete titles when I'm fairly certain my rating won't change much. If I feel my rating will only change by one point, then I'm happy to leave a 'What I think of the series at episode X' rating.

In terms of what I'm following, my ratings are only an indication of how I feel. They aren't final.

Check my manga list, or look more closely at my profile page. I rate the manga highly, and I even typed up a far too long, in need of editing review. It was fifth in my top five before GTO.

I dropped the anime because the one chapter pacing and filler ruined it for me. The art not looking as nice as the manga irked me, also.

insan3soldiern said:

I tried to do so when I changed my background awhile back. For some reason, I couldn't get the font size to increase. In the end, since it's readable with Opera (depending on your resolution - mine is 1440x900), I gave up.

There's a three-in-one volume out. I own it. It's a good thing to pick up if you see it going for cheap.

Kare Kano starts out amazing, very fast-paced and including wonderful characterization... but then it gets way too drawn out. Side characters got focused on, the main relationship got ignored and I ended up bored with the manga. It's a pity the mangaka wasn't able to follow up on the start, and that the anime had a non-existent budget...

ShadowbladeEdge said:

It probably is harsh, yeah. A lot people seem to give it 7/10.

Awhile back I picked it up for 99p. Then, one night when I was bored (and half asleep), I chucked the disc into my player. It only included an awful dub. I can't remember much of anything specific now, but I remember thinking of the story/characterization as being woeful, the visuals being uninspiring and the action being utterly retarded. I saw nothing of value and, unusually for me - someone who hasn't yet given a 2/10 - decided to go as low as possible.

If I watch some of the titles considered the worst ever on MAL, I might raise its rating. You never know.

...Oh, and for my R2 views, I posted a long-arse post about it and Shippuuden in the over-rated thread. If you can be arsed, look for it.

I believe quality shines through. If something is truly amazing, and doesn't offend people in some way, then a person should be able to judge it without awarding it 1/10 because of taste. Then again, I'm willing to give almost anything a try, my only 'NO!' being yaoi because, as a straight guy, I don't get off on guys kissing each other and being touchy-feely.

I mentioned Kare Kano and Wolf's Rain because cheap collections are available, making them very easy to watch. I imported Wolf's Rain for £18, and there was a budget Kare Kano set released recently. In order to experience different things, I feel buying and watching those titles would be a good way to go - that's why I mentioned them. If he, or you, feel I'm being a dick for mentioning them, I'm sorry... I guess?

I did the change when I first came on MAL, I was just too lazy to do anything about it and I'm not the creative type person. I was experimenting cuz I didn't know anything about MAL.

And as for Naruto, I'm the type of person, who finishes the series through. Since I already watched 150+ Naruto episodes, I went and grinded the rest of the fillers, and let me tell you, it wasn't a fun experience. If it wasn't for the fillers, Naruto would of received an 7, but since I am grading it based on 220 episodes, it definitely deserves a 3. Shippuden didn't cause me as much pain as did the first season.

As for my ratings, they aren't that critical. Only reason I left a 10 blank is because I hope and I know that somewhere in my time, there will be this super exceptional anime that will make me cry with tears of whatever kind and that I'll remember it for the rest of my life. I'm saving my 10 for that special anime if it ever exists in my life time. I watched a lot of animes I didn't like or wasn't my type to experience different types of animes. I watched well over 150+ animes, but I forgot a lot of them so I didn't put them in my list since it'll fog my judgement and not give a clear rating.

After reading your post above i understand your reason for giving Naruto(First season) the low score you gave it. You really shouldn't have put yourself through that torture of watching those fillers.

We have also only watched 18 of the same titles, so it is hard to get a good feel. I noticed you rated Samurai Champloo a 9 so i highly suggest you pick up Cowboy Bebop, they are the same in the feel. While Cowboy Bebop doesn't deal with Samurai's, they are directed by the same person and essentially deal with the same thing.

Since it seems you don't like Moeblob but have tried a few anime's in the romance genre i suggest you check out Nana. Best romantic anime i have seen, has the realistic story and character's out of everything.

And it's nice to see another One Piece fan xD

Well, your list contains a lot of what I plan to watch. I salute anyone who can tackle long ongoing series. With so many for me to watch and a lot of tempting recs, I only have that much time. It seems fairly balanced on the genres even with your 'Plan To Watch' list.

I can't really comment on your rating as I feel that part is more personal than anything else.I'm fairly extravagant with my ratings because I do that on enjoyment basis. You have ratings for 'On Hold' list?

It seems that people are also commenting on the visual look of the list. Well, what can I say...I can read it.

You've certainly seen quite a lot.

The first thing i notice is that you give out a hell of a lot of 10s. I can certainly understand some of them, but there are quite a few anomalies in there, at least from my point of view (Hyakko, Mnemosyne, Vampire Knight, and Lucky Star seemed to stick out for me). In fact, around 60% of your scores in completed are either 9s or 10s, which seems a little excessive. I might just be saying that because i'm never sentimental about series that i've watched, so quite often i'll drop series 2 points a while after i watch them since i can analyse better while not watching.

As for the look, Motoko wins me over, although it'd look better if it didn't obscure your plan to watch.

Dang, I thought so. Made the links bold now, but I had to change the font size. I'm keeping the help cursor though :P
and you haven't rated some things you have.
I'm still doubting what score to give some of the anime I've completed. I'll leave them unrated for now.

TsukikageRan
Once again, that's a looong list. You started watching anime religiously just 4 years ago and you already have 500+ titles. Cool xD With the lots of 10s and 9s there I could say you're easily pleased with what you're watching, and MAL doesn't influence what you wanna watch. Though you do give out 10s (and 9s) most of the time it's hard to figure out which of those 500 anime you truly consider a masterpiece. Visually, I think your list looks pretty good and easy on the eyes. 6/10.

Nitre
Gintama theme! Me likey. Compatibility's pretty good too. I'm liking your scores for the 63 anime we share. Lots of PtW there. I also see a lot under your watching (and stalled) list. There's around nine titles you've given a rating after watching only one or two episodes. Other than that good list. 7/10.

There's a lot on my watching and stalled lists mainly because i've lost the attention span that i used to have for watching over this summer, when i started watching anime. I had nothing whatsoever to do, and so i was watching 5 or 6 whole series a week, but it slowed down eventually, and i seem to watch a few episodes of a series, get bored, and start another one. It annoys me, but ah well. Generally if i haven't completed a series the score is provisional, but it usually turns out that what i give it as a provisional score tends to stick, or go down gradually.

As for yours:

I remember commenting on it in list design a while back, but it's great, although the text is a little hard to read.

A few decent series that i've seen are on your ptw, as well as some that i want to watch as well, once they air (Nodame Finale, Disappearance).

Unlike me, you seem to finish most of your shows, which is good. Good use of the whole range of scores as well. As you said, most of our scores correlate quite well with each other. As ShadowbladeEdge said, you've missed a few scores, but i don't really think that matters too much.

8/10

I'm not sure why we have a 56.2% rating when there's only a 0.3 difference between our ratings, most of the differences being only one point. I never understand how the numbers work...

In any event, the only rating that stands out is your 2/10 .hack//SIGN rating. That's just wrong (in my opinion, of course - no drama here!). I have feelings of affection for it because it was my first good anime, and Kajiura's music blew me away. (I still listen to the soundtrack, even now.) Sure, it's slow, but it's also involving, with some very likeable characters. I cannot understand your rating.

Since you can't use 0/10 scores, it'd be amusing to see how you scored .hack//roots if you watched it. Go watch it. You'll cry manly tears, with a Brummy accent adding to the pain of those around you at the time.

As for your list itself, I like its look. The grey on white works well and having a non-moving background makes lists a whole lot better.

One thing that's slowly turning into a habit ;O As for my list, I don't know what to do with the text anymore ;_; If I make the font size bigger the whole thing will look cramped. Smaller, and it's more difficult to read. Gah.

Good list. Good amount of shows you're watching, and in comparison to how much completed anime you have I guess you've dropped quite fair enough. I don't see why you rated D.Gray-man a 7, presuming you haven't finished episode one, amirite? Also goes for Devil May Cry and Shippuuden. Bleach... it's an 8 on your list and that's a high rating IMO, and you got as far as episode 63 too. And a 4 on Howl's Moving Castle makes me cry ;_; I'm unfamiliar with most other titles. 0.94 difference in rating is I think not that bad. Oh, and +10 for Senjougahara xD

10/10 for having a Bakemonogatari style list. Almost the same amount of anime seen as me with a similar taste. A bit stricter on the scoring tho. I'm surprised you didn't see ARIA and sequels. And a few other anime. Not many dropped and on-hold anime which is good also (I could certainly learn of it ^_^; ).

A lot in common, but much more generous in the ratings, especially in the Kyou Special. Aside from that, ratings were relatively similar, but disliked School Days. :(

We have few shows in common.... So far the only thing I have to say is that your list is quite small and you need to expand it, try to watch some older classics .

I don't really like to comment on the scores because it's just a matter of taste but anyway you seem to be a fair judge

Simple white background not much to comment on this subject.

I wept real tears when I saw Death Note and Code Geass up there.. ;________;

WHY? I was expecting something good from Char avatar and LoGH signature. Even more when I went to your profile and saw more LoGH..

I am really sad. I AM SURE YOU HAVE YOUR REASONS, JUST.. :(
I think Code Geass is worse than Death Note, though. The Code Geass anime and the Death Note manga started off well enough (granted, DN was better) but they just got :/ I could forgive a 7/10 or 8/10 rating for them, but their flaws are too significant for me to understand why anyone ever gives them 9 or 10 /10.

Death Note was one of my first anime, so I have an emotional attachment with it, still I think it's a good anime


Code Geass: I have nothing to say about R1 it has the grade I think it deserves . R2 was a total trainwreck but the pure amount of enjoyment with all its craziness and trollish cliffhangers still makes me give 10. I know it doesn't deserve it but there are few shows I enjoyed as much as Code Geass

@Soulstrider......our tastes are similar in your high side. You love to watch OVAs and Specials alot especially if you like the main series. Regarding list style, it's quite ok. though red on black background will hurt my eyes after a while. No comment on background. My background is far more simpler than yours. XD Btw, why you drop phantom?

Ok, I'm going National now.

Olaaaaa. A tua lista merecia um fundo todo à maneira *cough*Reinhard*cough* Tudo muito alto, excepto uns quatros que por ali parecem ser violentíssimos (Mars of Destruction não conta, é claro). Para quem gosta de LotGH dar 10 a TTGL parece-me criminoso. Precisas de mais romances e cenas fofas e de voltar a pegar em Ergo Proxy. E dos outros filmes de LotGH, aquilo é Ballet com naves espaciais a explodir. Lista muito virada para acção e coisas sérias com cores frias e escuras, acho que um momento ou outro de rosa não faziam nada mal. :3

/National

Basically, I said that the 4s on the list seem odd compared to all the other scores (pretty high) and recommended sparkly shoujo mecha. ^_^

@exospectral You see I still ask myself why I dropped Phantom, it's an anime that has everything I like but....for some reason I found it extremely boring, each episode seemed to take several hours just to finish it.

@ladyxzeus Eu tenho este fundo porque a minha lista tem um bug qualquer em que não consigo centrar uma imagem direito.
Eu sei que comparar TTGL a LotGH é criminoso, mas infelizmente o MAL não me permite que LotGH rebente com a escala.
Quanto aos scores muito altos, por alguma razão não me sinto bem a dar scores baixos, acabo sempre por pensar "Ah vá lá não foi assim tão mau".
E já bastante gente comentou que vejo poucos romances mas eu ando a compensar isso.Pessoalmente eu não tenha nada contra romances apenas calhou que não visse muitos.

And where can I find sparkly shoujo mecha??? Now I want to watch them xD

Dunno if they really exist, but Crest of Stars is really close to it.

Edit: But you watched it already. I fail hard. I also heard that Gundam Victory is actually for girls, but still haven't watched it.

Your anime list is simple, nothing special but the words are readable. Watching Death Note (rating 8), wonder whose side you're on- L or Light. Anyway, you like Higurashi too (same) and you're a Shion fan.

Indirect_Purple (The lowest person down that I haven't done yet.)

List style is pretty funky, such as having the section headers removed. Rated things before you've finished them, most notably a 10 for Hellsing Ultimate. Now I'll admit it is incredibly boss, but still. It would seem to me that we have pretty opposing stances on how we enjoy anime, for the most part. So in a sense I disagree with a lot of your scores, but that's how it goes.

A good selection, you seem to gravitate slightly towards the cute girls, romantic, and slice of life stuff. I'm noticing some noticeable absences, notably Princess Tutu. It could also stand to have a little more of the arty and cerebral stuff, but I'm glad to see that you got Welcome to the NHK and scored it appreciably.

The only beef I really have is the high score you gave to Chobits. >:(

8/10

Our anime compatibility is 59.3. I like that you balance your time with anime and manga. It seems you try to keep up with all the latest releases so I find you Plan to Watch list a little too ambitious, but if you ever manage to see them all, wow and I tip my hat to a person who accomplishes his goals without fail. Great list but you really need to get your priorities right. Welcome to the NHK is a must watch ASAP

Soulstrider, it's okay. I think Death Note was at least better than Code Geass (I only read the manga, though).. until of course MELLO AND NEAR.

Code Geass had potential but....................

That's because I was too lazy to use my old list style. There is no list style. Don't worry about it. It's a joke. look at selective_yellow's anime list if you care as to what my last list style was. :/

Also, I've read the hellsing manga, and the OVA I have been watching for years, and it wont be done in years, so I have no problem rating it while watching. However, I didn't rate monster and it took me over 200 days to finish until after I was done. Same for LoGH though that took me less time. Hellsing Ultimate is about the only thing I've rated while having not finished. But each to his own.

You.. you rate everything too high. I don't know what to say, because you have so much that is rated 9 or 10. Some of it is okay, some of it sucks.
Um, how are you liking brotherhood?

@Cadarn - Compatibility is at 39.7%, which is low. I don't see how Code Geass and Gundam Seed deserve such low scores. And I'm shocked you have dropped ToraDora before it even got good. To each his own, not trying to start an arguement here just stating my opinion. I notice you're a gundam fan like me, but you seem to generally like U.C. better. I'm more of the opposite, I like C.E and A.C. better. G gundam was good, but I don't think it was 8 worthy.

I wonder as to why you put Geass at such a low score? Other then that pretty big list and I'm happy to see someone who's seen almost as much gundam as I have.

I can understand how you'd think this, but the way I work is I watch shit I think I'll like, save a few odd men out. It just so happened that I figured I'd like most of this season, much to my surprise. I'm just glad that some factors keep me for watching half a dozen more.

How so, or do you just mean watch NHK?

Rate things. Finished. Before. Pretty much the same kind of feeling as I_P. Not surprising since I can detect such strong sexual tension between you two.

FreedomT1

Score things before you're done. You seem to be a Gumdam fan, and everyone knows that Gundam fans a awful people, nothing but rapists and murderers. Maybe you should want to watch some more different mecha anime? I hear Votoms and Patlabor are good.

@Blaze-Senpai, Planning to put sth on the left, but haven't found it yet. Thats why i leave my list as simple as it could be. Not so strange because of very low compatibility. Why drop naruto after watching only 6 eps? You actually note down the start date and end date for many animes. First time seeing someone with all three "started date, ended date and storage type" tabs.Regarding your background and list style, it's cute. I see the girl in your wallpaper isn't waring any underwears and(planning to take her short off). XD

Yeah, NHK is one of my all time favorites. Got to give it some priority over the others or at least put it high up on your to watch list. lol A lot of laughs.

Yeah, I have a hard time rating things low mostly because I only watch stuff I really like. However, some I just need re-rate since I added a lot of them really fast when I opened my account so didn't really reflect on how I really felt about them. Nevertheless, I stand by my 10's. lol

Brotherhood has been good so far. I fell behind though so I need to do some catching up.

Mod edit: Merged double post. Please edit posts if you have something further to add, instead of double posting.

Yeah, the ratings are a bit high, even by "I only watch what I like" standards. Speaking of which, your list seems to be concentrated around shounen and recent mainstream stuff. Might want to try branching out into genres you're not as experienced in. You might get some pleasant surprises.

Also, Harima = yes. (>_<)b

And before anyone else comments...
My list style is broken. I'm too lazy to fix it.

I found out how many episodes the entire series was, and I don't find it that interesting to keep going that many episodes.

Its more accurate after my join date; and I haven't had time to update the storage counts in a while.

As for the background, nothing wrong with a bit of ecchiness; keeps me going through life~

A number of long series there. Not much mecha and not a lot of older series. I tend to pick shorter ones and lately have been into movies like 'Le Maison en Petits Cubes.' 2 KyoAnis, Macademi Wasshoi, Kyouran Kazoku Nikki and TTGLagann for your 10s. Widely different from the way I rate but it's your list. I don't get gaga over rating something a 'masterpiece,' I leave that to reviewers. I rate for enjoyment. I am also an anime omnivore.

Dude with pink visuals - nice. I'm nearsighted though. The font's size makes me squint a little.

CaMaVan's list:

Nice list of animes. Are you waiting for the missing gintama subs or did u already watched up to episode 180 while missing some parts? Don't have too much low ratings so you probably pick shows that you really liked. A surprise rating for Death Note. Happy you watched Bacanno. Upset you dropped One Piece :(.

Yeah I'm waiting for Rumble to sub the Gintama episodes of 123 and up, though I could probably live with watching other subs as well. Think I'm just chillin'.
I'm pretty good at picking the good shows for me I'd say ^^
Death Note was the second anime I watched back 1.5 years ago when I had nothing to compare to than Naruto (which was my first, lol) so I'm not sure I got it right. I've got future plans of rewatching Death Note. The same goes for One Piece. When I first started it I just couldn't endure the show's intellectual level nor the art, but after having been round and about I'm gonna give it a second chance as well someday soon. Thanks for rating my list btw.
... Even if I took time to write alot of intelligent words of deep thought and meaning in my signature, would you really care to read and comment on it? ...

I was waiting for Rumbel to sub the rest of Gintama as well, but i stopped hoping for that anytime soon about 2 months ago. Horriblesubs' rip off crunchyroll is just as good as Rumbel's version anyway.

Maybe I should give that a try then. My mate had warned me that the video and audio track didn't match all the way through the episodes of HorribleSubs' releases...

Your list:
First thing; that list layout and theme ....... IS FRIGGIN AWESUM!!
You have very many titles on your Currently Watching; too many far my taste but the shows there are the shows I have personal interest in as well from either experience or expectations.
Overall we have pretty much the same scores in the "Shared Anime" though you have rated the Key Animation series (Clannad, Kanon, Air) somewhat lower than I have.
You should take time to finish Monster since it's a damn awesome show that you also seem to have a liking of, but it's a bit gray to watch for 74 episodes in a row so a pause would be essential. When I got to around episode 45 of Monster I took a break and watched K-On! to get some colours back into my head before finishing Monster, which I think was a good choice for me.
Soul Eater is also worth looking to the end, but you seem to already have enough on your Currently Watching.

To sum up: Even though there's a minor difference between our lists I like your style; 9/10.

I like the layout, especially how the tables are quite chunky, it makes it easy to see seperate titles, nice idea. You have a few interesting shows that I also like and I'm glad to see you gave Elfen Lied a high rating as it's one of my favourites :3 You have quite alot of anime that you want to watch so I hope you can get round to it soon and enjoy them.
