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.

- Epic / Grand / Fantasy

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

- Star Trek-ish / Star War-ish

It's the near future, and there is only one video game, called "The World." In the virtual reality of "The World", all sorts of people play. However, once a character named Tsukasa is unable to log out, and weird events start happening, "The World" starts to seem much more mysterious than anyone ever thought.
.hack//Tasogare no Udewa Densetsu
Five years after the events in the .hack video game series, The World invites twin siblings Shugo and Rena to play limited character players. These limited characters turn out to look exactly like Kite and Black Rose, the hero characters from the .hack video games, who were legendary .hackers that solved the riddle at the center of The World and made the game safe to play for everyone. Unfortunately, things start going sour as soon as Shugo and Rena show up; overpowered monsters killing low-level characters and sending their players into comas. It's up to Shugo, gifted with the Twilight Bracelet and the power of Data Drain, to solve the mystery and defeat whatever evil has taken over The World this time.
