I love to write. I love anime. Being a reviewer simply allows me to marry the two interests!
My reviews come from the perspective of a hardcore subtitle fan who holds most dubs in low regard (though some are good). I prefer cerebral anime to fluff, but am definitely not above a fun anime every once in a while. And though my first anime loves were shonen, the titles that I'm enjoying now tend to be more shoujo. Which makes sense, since I'm a girl, hahaha!
As you can guess by the name, Shoujo Kakumei Utena is my favorite anime of all time! Other favorites include Rurouni Kenshin, Trigun, Cardcaptor Sakura, X TV, and Android Kikaider.

|Rent||Twin brother and sister Aki and Aya Mikage are about to celebrate their 16th birthdays. Earlier on, Aya had visited a psychic and was told the fated day when the moon and stars of 16 would meet is coming, and that all hell and doom would break loose. Mysteriously their grandfather invites them over for a "birthday party" and gives them a gift which brings out new powers. Now suddenly the entire Mikage family wants Aya killed since "she will bring them nothing but harm." Aki is no longer allowed to see Aya. Along with that, an ancient legend of a Tennyo (girl from the heavens) is said to have come down to Earth and bathed in a river. A nearby fisherman spotted her and stole her hagoromo (feathered robe) that was hanging on a tree nearby. Without it she could not return to her home in the heavens, and was forced to marry the man and have his children.|

Kinomoto Sakura is a bright, cheerful, cute little 4th grade girl. She lives with her 17-year old brother and her widowed father in a nice home in Japan. One day, she hears strange noises coming from the basement of her home. Cautiously investigating the source amongst the rows of book shelves, she discovers it is coming from a glowing old book called "The Clow". Unlocking the book, Sakura discovers that it is in fact a storage box for a deck of odd cards. While attempting to read the English word "Windy" on the front of the top card, she accidently activates the magic card, causing the entire deck to be scattered and disappear all over Japan. The only card that survives is the "Windy" card.
