Because you know, I skipped over the review and went right to the forums. (^_^)v

I like how the one dude who's actually a fan of Kanokon finds the lack of scale grades in your review...the first thing he gripes about. XDDDD

I have to ask, was it a 3.5 out of 10? Because you might wish to go lower if it's out of 5.

I'm not the one who formatted it that way. :P But it was fixed very quickly.

I gave ep. 1 a 2 out of 5. I debated going as low as 1.5, but it was the first review I wrote, and I needed room to go lower, just in case.

So YOU'RE the new ANN reviewer!

Why? Was it an ongoing mystery or something in anime circles? ^^;

BTW, check out the bio I wrote up for ANN. You'll notice something...interesting. ^_~

Heh. Wonder how many flames you'll get from this^_^
do excuse my cynicism

There's no email contact directly on the site. Anyone who wants to get in contact with me is going to have to expend a little bit of extra effort...thus eliminating the average flamer. ^^;
9th-Apr-2008 01:43 pm (UTC) - re: what does Blassreiter mean
It's not a real German word but it is made up out of blass, which means pale and Reiter which means rider (usually on a horse and not a bike).

^^ I'll be looking into Itazura na Kiss definitely
