hey i'm alex (he/she/they)

Just an aging, queer manga fan bored by how terrible most shounen is, and catching up on shoujo and josei classics. Fan of instant coffee. I love slice of life stories with strong character development, manga featuring queer narratives, thoughtful looks at human relationships and their intersection with oppressive systems, and dark deconstructions of popular tropes.

My favorite characters are chaotic, gay, or dumb. Goals, honestly. My least favorite shows are heavy on fan service (especially that of minors), have misogynistic undertones (particularly when written for a male audience), or have poor characterization and character development.

I don't watch many new shows, because the types of stories I like are rarely created anymore, and are mostly drowned out by a series of low-quality drivel (and some excellent stories that are not my personal taste). Here's to hoping we can have a resurgence of shows like Nana, Utena, Honey and Clover, and more.

My scores are inflated (5, to me, is truly average) because I tend to watch well-received classics that cater to my own tastes. I tend to give abysmal reviews to a lot of seasonal anime or recommendations others give me, since the quality is just so lackluster. A "6" rating isn't a bad show: it's slightly above average. A scathing review or anything below a 3, however, is atrocious.

> Recently, we decided to start reading her shoujo manga that had princely characters in them, and I'm afraid she's become completely addicted.

It me.

My top 20 series are:
1. Utena
2. Nana
3. Skip Beat!
4. In This Corner of the World
5. Chihayafuru
6. Yuri On Ice
7. Mars
8. Lovesick Ellie
9. Wake Up Sleeping Beauty
10. Honey and Clover
11. Natsume's Book of Friends
12. Kimi Ni Todoke
13. To Strip The Flesh
14. Princess Jellyfish
15. The Water Dragon's Bride
16. Snow White with the Red Hair
17. Iguana Girl
18. Mermaid Scales and the Town of Sand
19. Last Quarter
20. Basara

They spam me with confusing votes, but I'm grateful cause they brought my review to the top :D You probably know that MAL users are so mature, it's impressive.
Sh1ro_ Sep 30, 2022 12:07 PM
Yup, it's even more funny when they get mad about a random review. This also says a lot haha.

Facts, was gonna try and push through it to try and understand why the show is so hyped up but I'd rather save my time and watch an anime that is good right from the beginning.

Your opinion on Kill la Kill is valid.

MyAnimeList suggestions are so hilarious.

> I've watched some shounen and hate like 95% of it.
> All my favorite shows are shoujo/josei with queer themes or BL.

We think you would like more shounen involving generic adventure crap. How is your algorithm this terrible?
It’s time to ditch the text file.
