The season of summer... the season of anime as some people call it. And the season that started a small new chapter in my life.
I've had my fair share of anime and manga ever since I was a kid. I used to be the typical kid that went crazy over Beyblade, Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon, and Pokemon. As I grew a bit older, I moved on to reading and watching Shaman King, One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach. Having watched and read all these anime and manga focused heavily on fighting, I never expected anime and manga to have such a wide variety of genres (At least, none of the other genres appealed to me). However, I soon grew older to appreciate masterpieces like Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, and Slam Dunk. And for awhile, I stopped reading/watching anything else because I thought I got a good enough glimpse of the best that the anime world had to offer.
I was given a reality check when I started watching a number of amazing anime that I never knew existed, during the summer of 2013.
Ever since the start of summer, I have been powering through several well-known anime series. After watching a fair share of all these amazing anime, I even found out my love for the slice-of-life genre, because slice-of-life anime tends to calm me down after a stressful day of college and extracurricular activities.
By making an account on MAL, I believe I will be able to explore more about anime and grow to love it even more over time. And as my duty as a MAL member, I will spread the love that I feel for anime to other members. If I get at least one person to read my reviews and start watching shows that I loved, that means more to me than being "top voted" or "most helpful."
The reviews that I write are mostly at the spur of the moment, and I try to hash it out within a week after finishing a series. I usually only write the reviews if the anime left such a strong impression that I had to write something about it. This is not to say I'll write about every anime that I give a high score. Some of the high-scoring anime are too well-explored, and others are too faint in my memories for me to write a satisfying review about them.
Feel free to leave any sort of feedback regarding my reviews!
Having said all that, I hope you all enjoy what I have to offer to the MAL community!
