My username is a portmanteau of several of my aliases: Vouivre Critique (Twitch and main YouTube), EchecCritiqueMisc (other YouTube), and MamaWeegee (Conceptis). Also, it's pronounced vwee-shek-wee-gee.
Here is some additional information about me.
Profile icon: Nowi (dragon form) from Fire Emblem Awakening + Luigi (aka Weegee) from Mario is Missing
Place of birth: Halifax, Nova Scotia
Other languages: Je parle bien français.
Favorite anime opening: "Identity (アイデンティティ)" by Mikio Sakai (from Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry)
Favorite anime ending: "Maware! Setsugetsuka (回レ！雪月花)" by Hitomi Harada, Ai Kayano, and Yui Ogura (from Machine-Doll wa Kitzutsukanai)
Favorite anime, manga, and characters shown are in descending order of ranking. (No, I am not joking when I say that Mondaiji is my favorite series.) For my character list, I tried to make sure all characters were from different series; otherwise it would be mostly Mondaiji characters, and some of the series that didn't make my top 5 list wouldn't be represented.
Why do I only rate anime and manga from 6-10 or not at all? I'm not especially strict about ratings on this site. If an item in or out of my list is not rated, one or several of the following are true: I'm too early into the anime/manga to give a reasonable rating, I haven't gotten around to watching/reading it, I don't feel like watching/reading it, or it's just not worth rating.
My personal rating system is as follows:
10 - one of my favorites (or a sequel/OVA/movie/side series thereof)
9 - although not among my favorites, I really enjoyed it
8 - had its strong points, but nothing stood out too much
7 - average; nothing was really too exciting, but it wasn't too bad
6 - kept me at least somewhat entertained, but something about it was unsettling
There are a few special cases that I use to add or deduct one point (e.g. Juuou Mujin no Fafnir +1 for Kili, Mahou Sensou anime -1 for its "conclusion"), but every other rating follows the above principle.
Why do I not write reviews on here? Simple: I just don't feel like I'd stand out as a reviewer, let alone on this site. If I'm writing anything recreational, anime or not, it will be on https://vouivreview.wordpress.com/
Behind the name Vouivre Critique: It all started when I bought Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock for the Wii. The game allows you to give yourself a name of up to 16 characters. I started out as Hidden Insanity, but I changed my name to Echec Critique (French for "critical failure") a month or two after. A year or so after that, I got to know a Guitar Hero Wii group started on Facebook called Team Wyvern. Since I was a part of it, I decided to rename myself Vouivre Critique (French for "critical wyvern") to commemorate my inauguration. I also changed my icon to the picture of Nowi in my current icon (took me a while to figure out what to use as an icon, to be honest).
