Hello there. This is my first post in my shiny new blog. My name is ** *** ( edit: I hid my name. Oh noob blogger giving out his name :p) but keeping with the gimmick of my blog, I am the pant-less blogger. I love anime and I’ve been watching ever since I could remember. I have a huge love for anime and I’ve sort dipped my toes in every genre. I’ve tried everything from mindless comedy series to drooling fast paced action up to disturbing hentai and everything in between.
I’m an active member in MAL (myanimelist.net) and I’ve done some half assed reviews there. I love doing reviews and I’ve been doing so since I joined MAL back in 2008. I’ve been clamoring for something more so I packed up shop and moved here. I feel that I’m ready to brave the storm and officially join the anime blogosphere.
My blogs are mostly reviews and personal opinion about anime. I’m honestly not as smart as I hope I can be so my blogs are simple. I do hope you can appreciate its simple-ness. They’re spoilers free and I hope I can turn this small hobby of mine into something worthwhile.
I have a personal goal of reaching 1000 reviews. Every journey starts with a single step. I’m not certain if I’ll reach a thousand reviews. Heck, I’m not even sure I can reach a hundred since I always lose interest or chicken out when no one reads my works but that is the goal and pray the gods I can achieve it.

I suck at English so go ahead and laugh. Those grammar nazis are welcome to laugh at my efforts. I don’t really blame you cause I laugh at my English too. Please refrain from profanities though. Nah, I kid. You’re welcome to use any word available.
Your opinions are welcome and greatly appreciated. This blog aims to reach 1000 anime reviews. This’ll gets ugly and I haven’t even started a review yet.
May 21, 2012 I suppose I should expand this bit. I’m from the Philippines and I’m 22 years old. The Philippines is a small group of islands just below of Japan. Anime is pretty prominent here. We have a local station airing anime that is pretty up to date. They have Shiki and other good bits. We also have Animax that simulcasts with Japan. We’ve come pretty far in spreading the otaku disease. We hold almost one convention a month. Its pretty awesome.
The problem is that they dub the anime. I hate dubbed anime. It sucks the genuine soul of an anime. I do agree that some dubs are pretty good but I just can’t stand hearing any other language in anime. Its gotta be Japanese. So I download my anime. I’m not picky with subs so I watch fansubs. I don’t prefer a single fansub group. I’ll settle as long as its properly subbed.
I don’t discriminate with anime. I’ll watch any kind of anime. I’m pretty flexible with it. I’ll pretty much watch any genre as long as the plot is good. The story needs to be watchable. I don’t care if its predictable, corny, stupid, or a four panel comic adaptation. I’ll watch it. That is why I’m pretty confident on reaching 1000 reviews. I haven’t dropped a single anime ever and my list already have 500 anime in it. I just need to re-watch them to do a proper review.
My personal favorite genre is mystery, action, drama and fantasy. I have a deep interest with slice of life too.
I’m keen to watching light novel adaptations. I’ve been pretty wary of some manga adapted anime because they often end prematurely. I still have a dark emotion coiled up in my head after Air Gear, Groove Adventure Rave, Twin Spica, Kare Kano, 07-Ghost and Flame of Recca ended abruptly.
You might say that I should read the manga and stop b*tching. I don’t read manga though. I can’t stand reading books or manga because my short attention span can’t handle it. I also hate wise cracking A holes who always spurt out the words “the manga is better”. Reading the manga often affects anime enjoyment so I just don’t read them at all. You might say I’m missing out but I don’t think so. I’m anime fan and I love anime. I hate manga and people who spout stuff like “Go read the manga, its better.” You’re free to tell me so but I’ll never touch them. Sorry.
Let’s all enjoy them pant-less. Peace.
