My two special talents: memorizing an inordinate number of voice actors, and formulating needlessly complex analyses for these Chinese cartoons. I am presently working on a third talent: writing compelling stories through first novels, then--in the hopefully near future--manga and video games.
Basically, I write stories and form opinions that I would like people to check out!
I don't use the scoring system at all, originally because I would get confused on what criteria to judge different series on. Now I don't use it because I'd rather freely talk about the ups and downs of a series without having to defend a number.
My anime list is composed of only original seasons. This is so I can keep track of how many different SERIES I get into (not including spin-offs). So if you see an anime on my list, chances are I've seen any sequel season, OVA, or movie related to it.
My manga list is kinda all over the place since I read many things that are still being translated. I mainly use this list to remember what I definitely FINISHED.
