Before sending me a friend request you might want to read my profile. The reason why my comment and message boxes are private is to avoid being trolled again. Sorry. Also, I'm having a bit of trouble saying hello to everyone here due to work.
Who am I, really?
Greetings. I am TerrorH3ctor, but TH works, too. Just a crazy Puerto Rican (my Spanish sucks) who's down-to-earth, gentle, easy to get along, and has a big sense of humor. Enough about that.
Since my teenage years anime has become a huge part of my life. I just CANNOT live without it. It's one of my personal passions in all entertainment (besides rock music and video games). I can't remember my first anime experience but I do remember watching G-Force known as Gatchaman) when I was small. I didn't know about the term "anime" until I was 12. I grew up on Toonami (WELCOME BACK!) and Adult Swim's Saturday anime block. Nowadays, I watch it online whenever I want. The Dragonball series, mainly Z, got me to watch MORE titles. As for manga, the first I read was Excel Saga vol.1 when I was 18. However, I didn't pay enough attention to manga back then (HOW STUPID OF ME!). Now I love reading it thanks to my brother. If you know any titles to watch or read, don't hesitate to let me know. Someday, I want to start my collection on anime DVD boxsets and manga volumes. ADV Films and Funimation are my favorite DVD distribution companies. I also like Bandai Entertainment and Geneon (R.I.P. both of you).
I really HATE it when people outside our anime/manga community mistake (or just refer) anime as "cartoons". Noobs--NOT all forms of animation are cartoons. I'm in university so for now, so I watch less anime.
One more thing I'd like to point out: Friend requests are welcome but I will not accept trolls, spammers, elitist taste pricks and the high-horse riders known as weaboos. Sub fans are fine as long as they're mature with their language preferences. Respect my tastes and I'll equally respect yours as well.
My overall taste,view, and ratings
For my rating in anime and manga, it depends on my taste and enjoyment. "Popularity" , hype, and/or critical acclaim are NEVER my concerns. If I like the characters and the art (doesn't have to be high-budget), I'll like the series. If I don't like the characters, I won't enjoy the series and screw the rest. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy some mainstream titles, but again, I don't care about much about content, period. I don't take anime/manga seriously like the majority of viewers/readers (but to each their own, yes?). Therefore, I score on how much I enjoyed and if I liked the ending, not what the series (or season) "deserves". My tastes are not dictated by genres, studios, directing but rather by the art and characters as mentioned. I like to watch many different anime depending on my mood (funny, dark, violent, light-hearted, romantic, raunchy, whichever). Although, I still struggle with monster/card battles and the usual dark hentai (I prefer light hentai like vanilla or close) . I'm a bit picky on manga depending on the art. I enjoy watching dubs and subs depending on the voice acting and if the voices match the character's age and personality. For subs, I prefer to watch them if licensed. Fansubs are a LAST resort if an anime takes longer than 3 years to get licensed or if I can't wait any longer. As for anime adapted from manga, I like seeing some new/different things that adds more fun without neglecting the original work's charms. Otherwise, it'll look like there isn't anything new which could be a letdown for me. On another note, I'm not always up to date with the newest titles.
