About Otaking09
What My Ratings Mean

  • 10 - Utterly flawless; I look forward to watching it again, it is incomparable and it goes about itself uniquely.
  • 9 - Though virtually flawless, it has enough nitpicky flaws (EX: convoluted narrative or a sense of aimlessness) to stain an otherwise very well made and memorable experience.
  • 8 - Does enough to be memorable, but at the cost of frequent generic choices (EX: boring/ordinary characters, lax pacing, a badly made ending) the full potential is hindered and strained but not destroyed.
  • 7 - Well made/very memorable "one-trick pony" experiences; the first impressions are usually astonishing but they struggle to move past it, expand upon it, or have diversity.
  • 6 - A worthy experience but with many ill-put decisions/planning making it too bumpy to revisit the whole thing again; the flaws can overcast the beauty.
  • 5 - Eh, you see these all the time; easy to make, easy to tell, pretty easygoing experiences. Nothing too memorable beyond a gimmick or two.
  • 4 - These have potential or a uniqueness, but they squander it for cheap generic storytelling at best, pointless filler-like meandering at worst.
  • 3 - Pervading and irritating sense of pointless/poor plotting to the point of unintentional hilarity (at best) and grating boredom (at worst) disarm any premise.
  • 2 - Generally nothing works or makes sense, letting a barebones plot/characters be the sole remainder to any reason to watch.
  • 1 - THERE IS NOTHING! (at worst) But the sheer sense of WTF could lead to some entertainment regardless (at best)


My very loose Top 10 Anime Series

  1. Welcome to the NHK! (Favorite Psychological/Black Comedy) - *...for illustrating the dangers of obsession, loneliness, and the need to communicate and be understood while having some of the best black humor in the medium...*
  2. The Tatami Galaxy (Favorite Surreal/Mindf*ck) - *...for being a surreal masterpiece of life's endless possibilities and the beauty of every single one of them with an equally masterful characters and wit...*
  3. NANA (Favorite Slice-of-Life) - *...for painting such a timely modern excerpt of everyday life with something everyone to relate to...*
  4. Koi Kaze (Favorite Romance) - *...for pushing the boundaries of love so subtly, without insulting intelligence, allowing empathizable characters to rule it all...*
  5. Zegapain (Favorite Sci-Fi) - *...for evolving an often gimmicky premise fluently, gently and powerfully; never losing heart, never breaking laws, always rewarding/satisfying...*
  6. Haibane Renmei (Favorite Fantasy) - *...for creating a mysterious universe containing and using all the pieces necessary for its ingenious and poetically human story...*
  7. Persona 4 (Favorite Game Adaption) - *...for thoroughly and naturally adapting one of the hardest genres of games and giving it plenty of spirit and wit to thrive despite the social weight/inherent flexibility of its brilliant source material...*
  8. The Super Dimensional Fortress Macross (Favorite Mecha) - *...the first mecha that didn't treat love, music, themes, and characters one-dimensionally, making an endearing, romantic, epic-unfolding story packed with the 80's trademark sense of individualism = an anime of the ages...*
  9. Martian Successor Nadesico (Favorite Parody/Comedy) - *...for loving fun anime enough to mimic and express itself while not slapping or demoralizing the beauty and camaraderie of fandom...*
  10. Yu Yu Hakusho (Favorite Shonen) - *...for being a shonen that stays true to the roots; fueling the story while making notable flaws endure ...*

Raptor1221 | Aug 26, 2013 11:57 AM
I have a wierd feeling we are some what mutually cringing at each others tastes(thought the Tatnami love is mutual)

Raptor1221 | Aug 26, 2013 7:31 AM

moeslasher | Aug 26, 2013 12:35 AM
who on MAL has the highest real (many have fake stats) stats?

sushiisawesome | Aug 26, 2013 12:27 AM
If I were to use your style, my favorite series would probably be:
Favorite Psychological/Black Comedy: Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Favorite Surreal/Mindfuck: ...Does Infinite Ryvius count?
Favorite Slice-of-life: Clannad. Let the killings commence.
Favorite Romance: Kare Kano.
Favorite Sci-fi: Steins;Gate
Favorite Fantasy: FullMetal Alchemist or Berserk. Can't decide.
Favorite Game adaptation: Persona 4.
Favorite Mech: Eureka 7. Geass is a close second though.
Favorite Comedy: School Rumble. The ending never happened.
Favorite Shonen: Hunter X Hunter.

Opinion?

sushiisawesome | Aug 25, 2013 11:25 PM
I like Madoka Magica and Clannad. They were far from flawless series, I admit, and certainly not the best of their genre, but they did what they did very well.

As for best of those genres?
Princess Tutu = Best Magical Girl.
Kare Kano = Best Romance.

Pretty decent taste you've got there as well. May be some major differences, but you some to be more accepting about other people's opinions than most.

sushiisawesome | Aug 25, 2013 10:52 PM
Well. I have no idea what to say.
Fantastic reviews by the way, nice to see a fellow Persona 4 fan :)

pls tell him μπουαχαχαχαχα τι εκανες παλι? θα σε κανω αντ απο το φέισμπουκ του αδερφου μου λεγεται νικηφορος ζορμπας
thank you very much for getting out of your way to let me know, I really appreciate it

Bayrock | Aug 25, 2013 4:22 AM
Alright, no problem. But, you can't base an anime review on the manga. I mean you can but that's about as dumb as reviewing it at ep 4 in my opinion.

moeslasher | Aug 24, 2013 11:01 PM
why is he banned?!

Esheraz | Aug 24, 2013 7:44 PM
Ah. I see. Sorry for being mean.

younz | Aug 24, 2013 12:53 PM
Thank you changed my life

sushiisawesome | Aug 24, 2013 12:11 PM
So wait, he enjoyed Boku No Pico that much?
I'm not sure what to make of that.

I was watching some Roriconfan/ThatAnimeSnob videos and I have to say that you fucking rule!

I disagree with you on some shows, but I think your critical evaluation is spot-on.

NullMoon94 | Aug 13, 2013 8:16 PM
Koi Kaze is indeed the greatest romance I've ever seen. I just finished rewatching it a few days ago and literally had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING bad to say about it. Art? I loved it. Ending? I think it was perfect and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Very few anime left such an impact on me tbh. I'm glad you also love it!
