Hah, I remember that review, one of my favorites here, because it's short and very concise, and it doesn't give away much information, just the right amount to get you interested. I'm guessing at some point Ro gave her a chance or perhaps she quit before writing any other reviews.

I wouldn't even call it a review. I've occasionally written comments in the "What are you watching?" thread that are longer than that "review". It also has the unprofessional writing of a typical forum comment including the ...'s and all.

Visitors to the site sort of get to know a reviewer through his, or her, reviews and are able to get to a point of being able to gauge their own tastes with that of the reviewer to get a better idea of how they will like a given title.

So it must be just me - I couldn't care less about the name of the author, except if s/he has an entertaining style. If I like the review I'll take a look at the Anime. That includes the style of writing and, more important, what is being said about plot and characters.

On the other hand, even that is tertiary... the first and most important active impetus for me to watch a certain show is the Seiyû list, if that's not enough to get me interested, I look at screenshots, and only if that fails I read what it's all about. :lol:

"Active" means me looking for something to watch. If I passively, surfing aimlessly, stumble across nice screenshots or an interesting review I might skip the preceeding motivational steps.

I believe it's just your Apocalypse Meow review and Wolfwood's Last Exile review. I'll post a bit later as to the winner.

Hey, I wrote about "Sakigake! Otoko-juku" - the contest was open for live-action reviews, too, right?
Nobody stands a chance against Wolfwood's, but I don't want to be forgotten completely. :D

I didn't forget about ya, per say, just figured you didn't want to bother entering it since you had been so disheartened :lol:

You are correct though, Wolfwood is the winner of the non-adult review contest. Really went the extra mile with including screenshots too :D

No one ended up winning the adult review contest, since no one entered it :sigh:

Nice work Wolfwood, congratulations! Let me know your address and the two box sets you would like. Since no one entered the adult one, you can choose from any of the 8 titles available.

Oh... uh... well, I... I'm just a foreigner who couldn't understand all of the instructions... well enough... sorta thing. :lol2:

Congratulations to Wolfwood. That Last Exile Review was totally awesome.
It should become a textbook example.

Wow, this is awesome! A first for me. I'm really excited about i!!!t :D
Acmurphy, I'll pm you my address soon, with my choice as well. It's going to be hard to decide. I will need to do some research first since I haven't watched any of the series, well I did watch some of YYH but not enough.
Thank you everyone for your kind comments, I really appreciate it. :D
