Name: Alex Black|
The name is Alex. I'm a 22 year old writer/artist/anime freak from the heartland who supposes that my opinion matters. I Try to share honest and thorough opinions in a detailed way. I also take issue with some people because they scratch their heads and say "I hated it because it was confusing"...I will never review a series that I don't understand enough to give a meaningful review to it. Enjoy, and feel free to mail me w/ comments (if you do, please enter "mikomi" into the subject box). And as long as I have the space to rant and (presumably) someone to read it...
What's with the overuse of the word SURREAL?
i swear, I see it in every review...check it out people, surreal does not mean confusing or wierd...surreal has a very specific meaning...briefly, it means nonsensical. If your dictionary ssays 'dreamlike or having the quality of dreams' or some other garbage, you need to find yourself a new dictionary.
Utena is not surreal. Neither is Lain. They both make sense in a literary fashion...if they were truly surreal, they wouldn't possibly make sense. OK, enough of that. Enjoy the reviews.
