Where do I begin?

Tale's Spirit of Wonder review

"Characters: Straight fromv cookie-cutter."

"my favorite by far is his Journey around the moon where an engineer and and millionnaire"

Kuma's Cat Returns review

"The cat came back the very next day, thought he was a goner…never mind."  I don't get what this means.

Lots of other various errors here and there.  Too many to list.  But the point of this post is just to point out that there's an issue with a lot of the new reviews.  They don't appear to have been proofread very well.

I didn't proofread them yet and I told DK and Pheld (I think...) that the drafts should not be uploaded until I do them...

Well, this is the result. I'll try to do as much as I can today because it's my only "free" day for the site.

EDIT: Actually the Cat's Return is not an error. That is an allusion to The Cat Came Back, a children's song.

Yeah, I've been submitting the dates in all my reviews in Australian format (ie dd/mm/yyyy).  I don't care if those get changed, if out of consistancy than anything else between reviews.... but I still don't want my "colours" and "flavours" to be changed.

Quote
However, I submit that its story is a fascinating yarn that ranks among the best romance that anime has seen and that, even without an attempt to create the pulsating atmosphere it did, Petit Cossette still would have been an interesting tale.
should be "romances".  It's funny how you're more likely to spot errors if you haven't read your work for a couple of weeks.

I'll fix the dates if I can notice them. Sometimes I see things like 10/7/something and I'm never really sure if it's July or October, that's why I always encourage MONTH/DAY/YEAR.

I did not proof-read the reviews just uploaded (except for Smile), so I'd like to apologize, just in case any of you thought I did. :(

Tale's Speed Grapher review.  Company should be Gonzo, not Bones.

^ was never fixed.

My le Portrait de Petit Cosette review has been uploaded twice.

Also, in my Futakoi Alternative review:  "but the supposed polar opposite of the original bland harem is actually an engrossing, and highly unconventional story surrounded a set of believable, yet inspired characters."  Should be "surrounding".

Actually, I fixed that problem before...  Deja vu.

Everything else is fixed.

That sounds like a problem with your end, because I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with the email system.  You do realize that all our email addresses are protected by reCAPTCHA.  The email addresses in our profiles are deliberately incomplete, and to get the real email addresses, you must click on the three dots like these "...", and then solve a reCAPTCHA.  Otherwise, all email addresses are simply the staff member's SN followed by "@nihonreview.com".

If there's a specific email address that doesn't work, report it here.  If none of the them work, wait and try again later, it might be a temporary server problem.  But I'm pretty sure they're not all broken.
