Hello and welcome to a world of eccentricity and confusion...
-Formerly GibbonTheTurtle, so-called for the breakneck pace at which I've devoured anime over the past ten years.
-Equal measures of serious and casual in my tastes, but overwhelmingly favour older works over newer ones
-Often my score isn't the whole picture, which is why I've since started providing descriptions in the Tags section of my animelist. Hopefully they should be able to give a clearer picture of just how much subjectivity factored into my scoring of any given anime (I do try to be forthcoming about it - wherever it catches my notice, of course)
-The Tags in my animelist are mostly self-explanatory, but the tag "Typical Gibbon Fare" is something I myself find hard to put into words, as it describes an odd kind of niche I've created for myself - typically consisting of mostly-forgotten or (more typically) ignored shows from the 80's, 90's or even early 2000's that lie somewhere between eminently-forgettable to enjoyably-bad, that I seek out not necessarily for ironic enjoyment, but rather for a certain indescribable aesthetic appeal
-Retro aesthetics, especially from the 80's and a fair bit of the 90's as well
-Authentic depictions of Japanese (or any other) culture, both older and contemporary, as well as folklore
-A healthy dose of the silly, the frivolous, and the patently absurd and nonsensical
-People with 300+ entries in their lists (or otherwise generally well-informed users) persisting with the Western convention for Japanese names ("Mamoru Oshii" is my biggest personal offender). I do realise that puts all but a small handful of users on this site in that bucket...
-Female voice-actors voicing adolescent/adult male characters, often in unconvincingly hoarse/raspy voices: I'll tell you what - why don't you have well-known male actors un-ironically voice female characters in falsettos not played for laughs, and we'll call it even.
These days I don't take anime very seriously, coming back only for the occasional so-bad-it's-good fare, or some typically obscure retro-OVA or such. And as such, I may not visit my account for several months on end. So sorry if you don't get a quick reply - or even a reply, period.
