About This Page:

Anime reviews. Did that phrase just now excite you in any way? If it did, then what you'll find here will tickle you senseless and fulfill your wildest dreams! If it didn't, then, well, sorry. Maybe check out my stuff anyway, just for curiosity's sake? Because my overlong opinions on anime are all you're going to find here, so I wouldn't expect to find anything else if I were you.

About Me:
I'm just a loser who's got an English degree and is really into anime, video games, movies, music, and D&D. And...that's really all there is. I write reviews, after all--that should clue you in on how boring and empty I am.
