Recommend me some post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk, psychological stuff!
- or obscure 80's and 90's OVAs.
- or short animations you found cool.
- or punk and metal music videos.
If I sent you a friend request it's because I like your taste and I'd like to see your updates to check what other cool things you found :)
You can find me on TVTime under the same user name (use the app, the web version sucks)
I'm also on LeagueOfComicBookGeeks but I rarely use/update it. I'm very willing to talk about comics, though.

And also on Facebook (same content, easier to follow if you like).
Something happens in my heart when I see Seiya with his first anime cloth... I probably have seen some random episodes of Speed Racer and Kimba before, but I really got into anime when Saint Seiya aired in my country in 1994 and I was 5yo. After its success there was a huge flood of anime on free TV. Dragon Ball, Shurato, Ronin Warriors, they'd even show some random OVAs like MD Geist and Genocyber for the kids between Sailor Moon and Captain Tsubasa. I also got a VHS of Akira back then and fell absolute in love with it, no wonder I became teenage punk later on. Some anime I watched in the 90's I hold dear are Street Fighter V, Yu Yu Hakusho and Samurai X (and Akira!).
In 2001, when I was 12yo, my family got a paid TV service and there was an anime channel. I got to watch tons of random stuff but also Cowboy Bebop, Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell, Serial Experiments Lain, Jin-Roh, Perfect Blue, Animatrix, among others, that blew my mind and completely changed my view of anime. In 2003 we changed service and I no longer had that channel, the anime on TV were the likes of Yu-Gi-Oh! and Bey Blade and I couldn't get into those, my bar was set too high already, and I didn't watch anime through the rest of my teenage years.
In 2008 I started watching some episodes of One Piece and Naruto on my lunch break and it was quite entertaining but they didn't air too many episodes on free TV. I got curious to see how the story would continue but my internet wasn't good enough to watch online so I looked for the manga, then I discovered that manga (of those shounen, at least) are so much better than anime. It's fast paced, they don't repeat the same dialogue ten times per episode nor have a flashback every five minutes, and from there I started reading a lot of manga, and although friends got me reading some stuff I regret wasting so much time on like Fairy Tail and Noblesse, I also discovered Berserk, Basilisk, Gantz, Attack on Titan, Eden, Death Note...
It was late 2015, I was hanging at a friend's house and the guy said there was this cool anime I had to watch, I thought he was going to show me yet another shounen and I was pretty bored at the whole genre already, but he showed me the first episode of Gangsta. and I absolutely loved it. When I got back home I watched the whole thing, there were nine episodes out and I was so excited but then, like a curse, when I finally got back into anime after twelve years, the studio went bankrupt and the anime was dropped two episodes later, not even completing the season lol.
But now I was back at it and started looking for other stuff, discovered Ergo Proxy, Texhnolyze, Sky Crawlers, Darker Than Black, Code Geass, From the New World, Terror in Resonance, Psycho-Pass... I was watching a lot of stuff, and then I found MyAnimeList, joined Jan 5, 2016. The rest of my updates you can see on the site :)
I think I added every single anime I watched as a kid.
Surely a lot of them I wouldn't even start nowadays, so quite a few "weird" entries around...
It's hard to rate anthologies and collections since they have ups and downs, so I just rate according to the piece I liked the most instead of trying to find an average - I feel like it wouldn't be fair when there are outstanding stuff in the middle.
On Hold is stuff that I can't find to watch/read.
Music videos I rate more based on how much I liked the song.
Found some video incredible but the music annoying it will get a 5 at very best.
I like the song but the video doesn't have anything special? Don't care, might give it a 10.
Why do I keep watching new seasons of shows I keep rating low or average?
Well, they are available on the streaming service I have on my TV, so it's a kill time out of convenience really.
The rest is as arbitrary as it should be.

The only anime in the stacks are short films and music videos. TV and feature films are not featured in the stack.
I hope that makes sense to you.
I found it as a Shinji Hashimoto (animator) fan, but I didn't care for it. It has a decently unique aesthetic, though I don't like the character design.
Are you planning to make a music video list at this rate?
btw, am I thinking of someone else or did you just shave .20 off your mean score in no time? XD
