Greetings! I've recently just started a club with a very specific purpose and I was wondering if you were interested in joining and/or if I could use some of your reviews for it

The purpose of this club is to try and create a community of talented writers who would like to make a more reliable scoring system than the one currently provided by MyAnimeList. Instead of a show being scored by a hundred thousand no-names, we would have the scores for a show coming from well-written reviews by anyone who is willing to participate. All of these reviews will be able to be accessed through our forums, so the mean score for each show will be more personal, since you'll know who's contributing and who isn't, and you can read what everyone thinks.

If you're still not entirely sure if this club is for you, you can go HERE for more details

This is a very new club, so things are barely put together.

If you’re not particularly interested in joining, I would like to know if I can have permission to use some of your reviews for the aggregation.

"Several love stories... they will make you cry. Definite recommendation.
Love. Tragedy. Sadness. And a happy ending. (...)"

Did you just spoil the ending in the second line of your review? What. The f*ck?

Thanks for your review of Elfen Lied! :)

Good reviews dude!

On your Haruhi Suzumiya review, and possibly others, your apostrophes and some other puncuation have become messed up. Like ' has become ' - you might want to edit those out / correct them. Because your review on Haruhi is super popular! Hope you read this~

I'm sending you a friend request because you're not my boss and I do what I want because I am my own person.

Hi! you said in a review: “(Baka To) Test has it in itself to bring out laughter from everyone and nobody.” What is this supposed to mean?
JcqIsHere Dec 6, 2016 12:45 AM
Hello I notice you have been on mal for quite some time so you must be quite knowledgeable in good anime
So out of all your favorite anime ( Besides Clannad: After Story ) which one of those should I watch first
I also would like to send you a friend request because you seem cool :)

Is your opinion from your reviews from 2008 is still the same or you have changed some perspective overtime? You have made earlier reviews from MAL before so I am interested to ask, what your current opinion on the show you see are wonderful.

Umino has one of the cutest styles while not following the moe archetype. It's just adorable. I am not a big fan of Hibiki, although it was one of the best shows in these last years, definitely. :> I am completely tone deaf, have no sense of rhythm and I sucked at playing any instrument.~

Also looking forward Natsume.

I am a bit scared to start hating programming. Every time I start doing something I like as an obligation I start hating on it more than I should. I need some self discipline to learn how to deal with frustration. So let's see how this works out xD

Yup. I think the changes were needed if they wanted to sell well, but I liked the gameplay in DA:O a lot more. DA II was (at least from what I saw) extremely popular with console gamers. Many people enjoyed it more than they enjoyed Origins, but most PC players were quite frustrated and disappointed. I think that Inquisition was a great effort to keep both kind of players satisfied.

The HUD in Mass Effect 1 really bothers me. xD After finishing Witcher 3 I will probably take a break, play Ori and the Blind Borest and LA Noire, and then I'll play Mass Effect.

I am too shy to use english (or even my native language) to speak to people online. Even with people I know and that are close to me in real life, I avoid doing audio or video calls because I start stuttering.
I used to play Ragnarok online and when anyone got close to me I would just teletransport myself to another location. xD Weird, right? That's why I avoid playing online, even stuff like pen and paper rpgs.

To me it depends on the kind of horror...I hate gore and most kinds of horror. I do enjoy psychological horror, though and that's why I am a big fan of Stephen king and of these kind of games.

MTG is excessively expensive. When you need to pay sometimes +3000€ to have a competitive deck, it's absurd. The game is awesome, but how the market works it's stupid. I know people who buy cards, expecting them to increase in prize and then sell them. It's like the stock market...they study the metagame and do price speculations. Absurd.

Eh, got quite used to it. As long as I can use both of my hands, it's fine.

For next season I have hopes about 3gatsu no Lion. I really enjoy the manga and looking at the pvs I have somewhat high expectations. The manga is drawn by the author of Hachimitsu to Clover - also did the character design for Higashi no Eden. I hope you'll like that one. 〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)

Well...there are two issues. First one is that there is no employment for new psychologists. My masters was focused on therapy with young victims and offenders and...despite having a masters and despite having done an internship already, to get my license I need to pay a bunch of money to our National Psychologist Association. Then they will give me an internee license and tell me to get a paid internship somewhere...which is impossible since I will need to find a place where they already have a psychologist with 5+years of experience to be my supervisor and they'll have to pay me. No places want to do this, specially public institutions with kids that were taken away from their parents and/or are in risk, detention centers, orphanages, etc...because these places don't even have the resources to hire a trainee.

2nd issue is that I am still looking for something that I need to do to fulfill myself. I think I won't be a good psychologist when I am still not "good with myself". While in uni I spent lots of times in activities and joined students associations. Even an European one. I gave lectures, prepared congresses and conferences, met lots of people, worked lots of times as a graphic designer and even got to be in charge of a team. It was great. I grew a lot and overcame the social anxiety I had dealt with for years. But there's still something missing and for now...programming makes sense. I know a bit of development and I find it fun and maybe, for now, maybe I just want to do something fun. If that gives me money, the better.

The Witcher series is probably my favourites. Until I played Witcher 3, DA Origins was my favourite game but...right now I am feeling completely immersed in the Witcher world and I can feel empathy towards even regular NPCs (I even teared up with the Baron story), which is something most games don't make me feel. In my favs we can also count Bioshock (except the second one), Fallout 3 & Vegas. After finishing Witcher I plan to start Mass Effect...but the first one is making me feel so off. ahah. I also have Dishonered to finish...Actually my steam is full of games I never touched because only now I have a decent laptop...wanted to build my own pc, but my previous laptop burned and I was needing a laptop for the classes.

Yeah I know it, although I still have to try it. It's also kind of difficult since I play with my bf, his brother and some friends but lately we're all in different cities and depending on dorms or uni internet...which is...impossible if you want to use skype.
World of Darkness is my favourite because of the horror and lately I created some ways to let us play...we use google drive and we have these blogs that belong to "some characters" and where I post and give clues and they try to find more about what's happening.
Example of some materials I created for the game (the setting we are playing)

This last one is a cap of one of the blogs...all blogs have a password so no one will randomly find them and think there's an actual child missing or a real crime :>

xD I also find Magic a very expensive hobbie and mostly it's my boyfriend who plays...we own a bunch of cards because of boosters but most are worth...nothing. His deck though as some expensive cards because he likes to play in tournaments and such. It was me who introduced him to MTG though...and to anime.:<
We also play GoT Living Card Game which is also real fun and it already has 4 pre constructed decks if you just want to play occasionally with some friends.

I suck at most sports. ¯\(◉‿◉)/¯ Tennis was one of the few where I didn't suck so I ended up playing it for a while. But besides wrists I am not really healthy. Lots of back pain most of the time, my arms are really weak, I faint easily if it's something above 28ºC (which is not rare in Portugal) and I have severe arrhythmia. So I am basically depending on pain medication a lot.
So it's basically the same with carpal. I end up taking pain medication...although because I have some tolerance built to it I have to take more than recommended and I put something warm around my wrist along with some tight bandages. Tight bandages might alone help if it's not severe pain, since they restrain some movements and relieve the pain.

That is a shame. Really. Even your old reviews are helpful and have some thought put into them which is something we can't say about all reviews in MAL. I agree though about seasonal anime...lately there has not been much to grasp my interest. Rakugo Shinjuu was probably the last "seasonal" I enjoyed seriously. I honestly enjoyed Eve no Jikan...Besides visually engaging the show takes a different approach to "humans and robots" than most anime. The interactions between characters and contemplative moments are really well done.

I did that once or twice but sometimes I found some weird hentai that disturbed me more than I like to admit. ◝(๑⁺д⁺๑)◞՞

I understand you. Currently I am in "holiday" mode but in two weeks my classes will start - I was accepted in an intensive course on Programming. Because it's only one year we have 2x times the amount of work and time in class than a normal course. The good part is that they guarantee you a job if you pass the course. I just finished a thesis and internship report to finish my masters in Forensic Psychology so this time off is doing me some good.
I agree :> I like to meet people online.

Hm...I am...ahm, very, very geeky, I guess? Besides anime I enjoy reading (I adore ASOIAF, many of Stephen King books, and many other books...although my favourite books are The Perks of Being a Wallflower and the book The Little Prince). I also read comics (non-manga) like Batman. I spend lots of time gaming - actually because I had to get a new laptop for this new course I have been spending lots of time around Witcher 3), I play pen & paper RPGS and I love to be storyteller/game master in games like World of Darkness or Dungeons and Dragons. I also like to write horror stories (which I often use as settings for these games)....I like boardgames and I sometimes play Trading Card Games (specially Magic) with some friends.

I used to draw a bit and play tennis but I have severe carpal tunnel and even if I get surgery just after some weeks I am back to not being able to properly move my wrists without pain.

....I was almost certain that I had seen your nickname along with your profile pic a couple of times. :> I read your reviews lots of times. Actually I watched Eve no Jikan after reading one of your reviews. Really, since I have an account in MAL that I have been reading your reviews. Keep your good work.
I am one of those people that will watch everything as long as it's not hentai so, sometimes I find really amusing things while dwelling away from the most popular shows.

Also I am fine. Thanks for asking!

What about you? :>
