A Little About Me
I'm not a crazy anime fan however, I do watch them often. When it comes to watching them, I'm quite choosy. I will first make a judgement based on the anime summary or background. Then, if I "really" think it might be a good one, I will download, rent, or even buy it. More times than not... rather, nearly everytime it would be worth the time I spend on it. If you look at my scores, none fall below 39 out of a possible 60 (which will be virtually impossible since that would declare a "perfect" anime). The reason for this is because I attempt to make a judgment based on existing reviews, synopsis and first impressions before choosing to spend my time on an anime. As well, I will take and accept only reviews purely from Mikomi here since I believe that I will find more honest and "fare" reviewers in this community.
Subbed vs Dubbed
Ahhh, there's the age old question. First, I don't understand Japanese thus I'm stuck choosing these alternatives. My choice would be Subbed, 100%. Reason? I want to know exactly what the voice actor/actress is saying even though I can't understand it and I want to hear it in all it's original glory... meaning the voice, tone and emotional aspects of it. As well, I'm a fast reader and can read and understand a block of text purely from peripheral vision without missing any of the animation itself. There's only been a few rare cases where I would have to go back, pause and read the text over; i.e. when it display for a quick sec or get distracted.
A little about my scoring system
The scores I give a series will not reflect the "Overall" rating. For me, the "Overall" rating includes much more than simply the 6 rating characters that follow it; (art, animation, character design, music, series story & episode story). The primary determination of the "Overall" rating is how "I" relate, understand & feel about the series I just watched. If I get drawn into the anime weather mentally or emotionally, and feel good overall about the series, then chances are, the "Overall" rating will be a rent or buy even though the 6 other ratings might be a bit on the average or low. As for a score of "10", I will rarely score 10. 10 represents "perfect" or a breath away from perfect. In my opinion, almost nothing is perfect.

- Comin of age / All ages
- Types of anime I try to AVOID:

Dokuro-chan is an angel who comes from the future, She begins living in Sakura-kun’s house. She looks quite young but has a glamorous body, and she is innocent and cute. And she's here to protect Sakura from being killed by other angels from the future (because in the future he'll be the intentor of the ultimate lolicon immortality technology which is something that God cannot allow toexist). However, every time something happens, she beats Sakura to death with “Excaliborg”, a special bat with thorns. But, don’t’ worry. When she casts a spell, “Pipil Pil Pil Pipilpi~”, he comes back to life... this is how, a bloody heart-warming story of Dokuro-chan and Sakura-kun starts.
Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan 2nd Series
The original Dokuro-chan series told the story of Sakura Kusakabe, a second-year junior high school student who sometime in the future was going to offend God by inadvertently inventing immortality. In addition, women would be affected so that they stop aging after the age of twelve, and Sakura is accused of creating a "Pedophile`s World". Dokuro Mitsukai, a member of an order of angel assassins called Rurutie, was sent from the future to kill him. However, she also has the power to raise the dead. Believing that Sakura can be redeemed, Dokuro always brings Sakura back to life each time after she kills him - with her gigantic spiked tetsubo (club) she`s named Excalibolg - on a moment`s impulse. Sabato, another assassin of the Rurutie order who uses her feminine wiles to do her jobs, was also dispatched to complete Dokuro`s original mission.
