About MAND4
I base my ratings on following:

- Characters: for me, characters have always been a backbone to everything else - in any type of medium. If the characters are inadequate, there's a great chance I'll lower my score immensely from what it could have been.

- Enjoyment: an obvious one, really. If I'm personally incapable of seeing my time spent watching certain anime as "enjoyment", there's a huge chance that that anime will receive lower score.


- Story: to me, story isn't all there is to it to anything really, but it's still important. The reason being is that you can have a great anime without good story (Daily life of Highschool boys, as an example, carried completely on gags and characters). However, if the story is anime's selling point, or one out of major ones, if it's not competent I'll have a hard time overlooking it.

- Sound/Music: while I agree that, sometimes, soundtrack can make or break anime, it's not something that I'll hold anime accountable of if majority of other things work. However, having a great soundtrack, and sound itself, is always a major upside.


- Art: I also agree that art can sometimes really, really up the score of the anime. But that's only the case, at least for me, if everything else works. While it's true that the artstyle is, in most cases, the first thing you catch, I never really completed anime for art alone. To me, art is only a catalyst for everything else. The reason, probably, being is that I read a lot of books so the art never truly mattered to me. Whether it's pre-historic or modern, if it compliments the story, characters and the rest of it well, or even if it doesn't, I won't lower or up the score that much.

As bitter as this world can be, I don't want to leave it. As much as it hurts me to see her with him, I'll keep watching her. Broken, bent and torn, until all the pieces of my heart are in shreds, scattered in the wind, I'll stay here. Even if I have to crawl, I will. That's what it means to love someone, but, above all, that's what it means to want to live.

Glad you liked it! In my opinion, it's kind of a shame - if it was done with some more caution, I'm sure it would fare much better. I guess there's always Nodame Cantabile, but I haven't watched it yet.

Happy holidays to you too!!

What kind of anime,biatch?

I liked your ao haru ride review. I think the anime gets too much hype and isnt really original at all.

Ao Haru Ride is not that slow as Kimi no Todoke ad is quite enjoyable for now. It's just that I hate when the entire season keeps building up to the point where main characters should almost go have sex, but instead of confessing they just do nothing ( like in Kimi no Todoke ) :DD Anyways, I will keep watching, since I don't think anything can be that bad as Kimi no Shitoke. :D

Hello, nice review on Ao Haru Ride. It does seem similar to Kimi no Todoke. And not to offend anyone, but that was a horrible anime, in my opinion. It's ending was so awful that I almost smashed my pc in anger why I wasted so much ours of my life. :D
So can you tell me if Ao Haru Ride has a similar ending ( the main characters don't confess, nothing happens ) ? Cause if so, I don't think I want to waste my time.

Hahaha :) No worries!

Hi, i really like your Love Lab review. It was definitely on point! I just wanted to let you know that you got Maki Natsuo's name wrong lol. You said Mika instead of Maki :P

I agree with your Clannad review completely. it's been almost a year since I started watching it and I stopped at the 16th episode. After awhile I spoiled its "deep and impactful" ending for myself and didn't even bat an eyelash. As far as I'm concerned it's probably the reason we have so many school/slice of life/harem anime nowadays. Average at best.

Oh, ok. I understand now, thanks for clarifying. Also, great review keep it up!

Hey, just wanna say I love ur review of Clannad, I was getting tired of seeing reviews where people kept smoothering an obviously average work with prize, like brainwashed zombies .lol. anyway good job :D

Read you Clannad review. And I was wondering if you could clarify one sentence for me. It was this one: "but ... I can't care for some unrealistic character I know does not exist in this world." What did you mean by it.

Almost every anime is fiction and the characters don't really exist. So, I was wondering if you could clarify. Am I making any sense?

Nice Chihayafuru review. I enjoyed it, but I felt like a lot of the moments especially when they tried to force tension on Chihaya were a little over-the-top and a lot of them were cliche.
