Welcome to my page, I welcome friend requests made if you feel we may have anything in common, but if I feel we may not, I won't accept the request. Below are my favorites in anime titles and characters, my favorite anime are those I enjoyed most and for characters are those that I'm fond of. I found a variety of titles entertaining that encompass various genres and decades.
I watch various anime consisting of older series and new titles of those that capture my interest. When it comes to the anime I watch/would like to watch; the criteria I look for is a good story/plot, interesting characters, and a talented cast of VA's. When watching an anime, I look for how well the story/characters develop. I rate by looking at the whole picture; I won't give something a good score just because it's well-regarded and highly rated by others, there will be some where I won't share the same opinion. At times I'll watch a lighthearted or guilty pleasure anime that seems like it will be a fun watch and rate those types differently. Enjoyment is also key, most of those I rate 8-10 are ones I like to re-watch. I dislike loli/imouto anime, trashy ecchi like Masou Gakuen HxH & Prison School, reverse-harem, those long running shounen anime that goes on for 200+ episodes...they become a chore to watch and quality diminishes. I refuse to watch those kinds of anime.
I feel in today's anime, it's lacking in having a number of great female seiyuu who made their mark in the 80's and early 90's voicing main characters and are cast aside to supporting roles, which is sad. I'm mainly a fan of the female seiyuu that were active in the 80's and the 90's because I love their voices and those that I favor are excellent in terms of their acting and singing talent. I encourage all to support these fantastic veteran female seiyuu for their amazing talents. As a fan of older anime, I disagree with those who base their superficial arguments on disliking/not watching older anime because of the animation. When it comes to anime; the story/plot, characters, and how both progress is what counts, not what the series looks like or how pretty it is. I encourage everyone to watch anime of the 80's and 90's, there's plenty of awesome titles to choose from and you'd be surprised on how entertaining the classic anime titles are.
IN HONOR OF THE 30th ANNIVERSARY OF KIMAGURE ORANGE ROAD & REMEMBERING HIROMI TSURU
This year the iconic 80's rom-com anime Kimagure Orange Road celebrated its’ 30th anniversary (hoping to see a BD release made of the series as it richly deserves). Sadly, the seiyuu who voiced the beautiful Madoka Ayukawa, the talented and versatile Hiromi Tsuru passed away recently. It is truly a heartbreaking loss of such a beautiful person as she was. So, in honor of both the 30th anniversary of Kimagure Orange Road and celebrating the legacy of Hiromi Tsuru I’ll have Madoka Ayukawa on my profile and share favorite videos and songs of Kimagure Orange Road and Hiromi Tsuru.
Madoka Ayukawa is a character I cherish for her allure, charisma, courage, dedication to her endeavors, kindness, maturity, passion, strength, zest for life, and how she develops throughout the entire series. It is obvious to see why she is best girl of Kimagure Orange Road and why Kyosuke Kasuga had fallen deeply in love with her. Their scenes together as a couple show how strong their chemistry is. I truly recommend watching Kimagure Orange Road; I believe it’s the best 80’s anime rom-com ever made with its’ engaging coming of age story, fun and colorful characters, great music and songs, fantastic performances by the seiyuu cast, and is an enjoyable series to watch.

-Kyosuke x Madoka ship greatness…I love them together so much ^__^ 💕
Hiromi Tsuru is one of my most favorite seiyuu whom I will always cherish for her great talent that she had brought in her career with so many amazing character roles and her versatility as a seiyuu. She will always be remembered and loved by all who were closest to her and fans of her work and will greatly be missed. My thoughts and prayers to her family, friends, and fellow seiyuu she closely worked with over the years as they mourn the loss of their beloved Hiromi. Hiromi Tsuru will forever be a legend, always.
-Madoka’s image song by Hiromi Tsuru, “Whispering Misty Night”. It’s a beautiful and melancholic song that will make you cry.

My Rating System
10.Masterpiece-Ultimate perfection, re-watch is a must because it was so terrific a series to watch that I can enjoy endlessly without it ever being a dull moment.
9.Great-Truly awesome and a definite re-watch, but just barely makes it to the level of masterpiece.
8.Very Good-A pleasant watching experience, some re-watch worthy, but has at least one or two flaws that prevented it from getting a higher score.
7.Good-A decent series, just a few flaws, yet was entertaining to see.
6.Fine-Could've been done much better, but wasn't too bad.
5.Average-Just meh, not bad but not great either.
4.Bad-Nothing really good to speak of because the flaws outweigh anything good about it.
3.Very Bad-Flawed and possesses no redeeming qualities.
2.Horrible-Too flawed and too horribly made, a complete waste of time.
1.Unwatchable-Things like those trashy harem ecchi and lolicon anime is what I would consider unwatchable. Tasteless anime like that is beyond horrible. Also anime that makes me facepalm myself and say WTFPWP!
