I'm addicted to shoujo anime. I have to possess incredibly obnoxious amounts of it or I get the shakes. I won't hesitate to spend money just to get my grimy paws on new shoujo anime. Oh yeah, and if somebody tells me (or if I read on some site) that so-and-so is the greatest shoujo anime ever to grace the face of the earth, I have to have it or else it will eat away at me. So it will be a cruel joke to tell me that a title is really good when in reality it's not even worth the disc it was recorded on. Because I will search high and low to get it. Really.
Shoujo anime consumes me. It consumes me so bad that I have shoebox after shoebox filled with them. I would spend hours cataloging them, alphabetizing them, reburning them, and relabelling them. What? That just means I'm anal retentive? Oh. Okay.
Over the years, my taste in anime has significantly narrowed. I already preferred shoujo anime to other genres of anime before. Now, I have become much less tolerant of any anime that doesn't have
1) A female
1) Sudden girlfriend
Well. It sure helped me trim down my anime collection.
The synopses and the reviews also use a lot of anime terminology. Hopefully, they would be common enough to be understood contextually if not lexically. The sections also make references to other anime. If the characters are well-known, I probably won't elaborate about them too much. For example, I would talk about Usagi and would be implicitly referring to the heroine of Sailor Moon. But if the characters are relatively obscure, I would then provide some elaborations.
