I'm LofZOdyssey. I have been an anime reviewer since 2015 and an anime fan for much, much longer. Currently, I am based in Osaka, Japan. As a rule, there is no anime I will be unwilling to review, and any series I start, I must finish. I hope to hear all sorts of feedback -- positive and negative -- in the comments.
