Shawn you know full well I'm more qualified than anyone. Some people just don't have it in them and some do, like.. moi.

Well everyone 18 and up are legally adults.


Well, that would have been fine if he was talking about it in the legal way, which he is not, I mean he is not trying to have sex with her or anything, at least I hope not. The way he phrased it, it just sounds like anybody below eighteen is an immature person that you can't talk to, which is of course complete bullshit. There is also a difference between using kid or child, seeing how kid is a term often used to describe somebody immature, it is a very condescending term. Of course I too know that anybody below the age of 18 is technically a child, but drawing a line like that just seems stupid to me.

Although about MAL, I'm not sure if that's exactly a good way to get a good review on an anime. Recommendations are usually okay but reviews are pretty messed up on both sides.


Yeah, you're right there. Still, I think MAL is a good tool to use, especially when you are new and want to keep track of what you have watched already. Plus, MAL's top list is a good place to look when you are new to Anime and don't know what to watch. But as usual with the internet, you have to tread carefully.

Ok. Want to reply to everyone individually but I will just lay this out for all. I didn't really expect any replies to be honest but I am really understanding now that I am awake and off work how poorly written that was. Especially the female and 18 part. What I meant strictly by that was best case scenario. Obviously trying not to pick up chicks or anything online or whatnot. Just meant that would probably be for the best. Why I said 18 (and I swore I put around, and by that I mean like 4 years, but again, worded poorly), is just because it is around my age and I do find it the easiest to connect to people of the same age, no? Male or female, any age, I care not. I also saw someone post about choosing your own Anime, while I agree, that is part of the awesomeness of having choices, I was really leaning more towards someone I can ask questions about the Anime's and anything I might have missed or got confused about. Plus there is a lot of good Anime that I might skip over because at first I don't find it amusing. I just thought it would be a cool idea to get better connected via instant messaging rather than going through the forums and constantly refreshing for a reply. Granted, the forums have there plus side don't get me wrong. I am going to say I'm sorry now for any confusion. I will just scratch my first post off as a failure for now and move on haha. Thanks for the replies though. Kind of surprised me with how active the community is. I will slowly work my way into it now when I have some free time.

Honestly, you should probably just take out the age and gender specification because you do sound like you're trying to pick up girls. Those girls you wanted probably got as far as that line and hightailed it out of here.

And if you are just looking for someone who knows a lot about anime or what not why does that even matter? I don't automatically gain wisdom, insight or maturity because I'm female. I got those from being down right awesome.

Ok. Don't know why I didn't do that sooner. Done and done. And a bit egotistical are we? I'm just kidding. Almost feel like I should just delete this post (I would assume that's possible as well right). Might leave it up just because, and since some people were helpful and offered to help thankfully (or hopefully?) not taking what I said in the wrong way. I will just stick to asking the forums any time I need answers. I kind of butchered this idea pretty bad.

I think it's smarter to just research the topic properly. I mean it's not that hard if you're talking about holidays, or items. Come on I didn't know what a otoshi-buta is, so I googled it and got my answer :| Even with genres or phrases if you just add anime after it I'm pretty sure it would work out just fine. If not, post a thread about it on Crunchyroll.

What can I say, when you're awesome you're awesome. Can't deny the truth, can we?

Just know that in the future if you are trying to find some girls to chat with, purely platonically, you probably shouldn't start with anything along the lines of "females, 18 and over please".

I definitely wouldn't call myself a sensei or anything, but I like anime and can type. I could try to answer any questions you might have and I'm always open to recommending shows if I have some familiarity with the genres you're intersted in.

Trust me. I don't usually say things like that, I just purely wasn't thinking. Now anyone who has seen this thinks I'm pretty weird and/or creepy. I can't blame them though because if I saw the same thing I would avoid that person as well. Really working backwards from my original goal of
reaching out to people haha.


On another note. Found this picture that fits how I feel about this whole thing pretty well.

There are already too many posts in the thread about said creepy statement. All the over 18 anime girls will read them and run away

it's too late to go back now



Just embrace it

Oh yeah... I didn't think of that.

Dude, you're screwed. :p

Batman can't save you now. Maybe Sailor Moon could have, but not Batman.

You may want to ignore this since I haven't slept in... I can't even. Do. The. Math. X_x
