About MAND4
I base my ratings on following:

[MOST IMPACT]
- 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.

[MEDIUM IMPACT]

- 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.

[LEAST IMPACT]

- 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.


No, you're wrong. To love someone isn't to be willing to die for them, but be willing to live for them in spite of everything.

Thanks

It really was. I had a friend suggest I watch Love Lab after it aired and I never thought twice about it. After I read your review I actually debated on it and finally decided to give it a try.

Well I can say I honestly look forward to seeing more from you. Norm or not you have gained a fan.

goshujin_sama241 | 04-27-15, 9:36 AM
I have got to say that your review was spot on. For what Love Lab was it was highly entertaining. As people who don't typically watch a lot of moe shows would say, it was refreshing. I got a lot of laughs, I found the characters to be likable and enjoyable. The story, while not extreme, plays well in the whole purpose of the anime. (I am starting to sound like your review)

I still like your profile picture... it is just really good.
How often do you review anime?

goshujin_sama241 | 04-07-15, 11:49 AM
It is really good. I appreciate good art.

I will and when I am done I will let you know what I thought.

goshujin_sama241 | 04-06-15, 9:58 AM
Love the profile picture. It is amazing. Where is it from?

Also your Love Lab review makes me want to check out the series.

Okey doke, thanks!

ThatOneAfrican | 03-23-15, 8:31 AM
No problem :) And yeah, I think it's an amazing book, but I also tend to be a very lenient critic, so yeah. Lemme know your thoughts on it if you get around to reading it okay?

ThatOneAfrican | 03-21-15, 8:04 PM
Hi! I read your review of Gekkou and thought it was very informative for a new reader such as myself. I was wondering what your opinion is on this other light novel, Utsuru no Hako to Zero no Maria, if you've read it? Considering I just finished it recently, I'm still on that 'post good book high' so I can't really be objective towards it.

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!!

Hello darkness my old friend.

What kind of anime,biatch?

moonofchaos | 08-18-14, 5:50 AM
I liked your ao haru ride review. I think the anime gets too much hype and isnt really original at all.

robis798 | 08-11-14, 3:22 AM
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

robis798 | 08-11-14, 1:31 AM
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.
