About PockyG
I tweet episodic mini reviews for fun. Please follow me!

I'm heavily biased towards Gainax animes. Sorry about that. Other than that I try to stay as unbiased as possible in all my scores.

I do not rate dropped or on hold animes. However if it was dropped, most likely I did not like it enough to finish.

Please don't take these ratings the wrong way. I'm trying to use the entire score range and the descriptions used by MAL:

3 or below
Something I absolutely hated but still somehow finished. These are so bad it's funny.
Fail Rank

Major issues but still watchable. Advised to skip.
Rank D

Anime with some problems but still decent. Not recommended.
Rank C

An enjoyable anime overall. Does nothing stand out or advance the genre but good for hardcore fans. Many animes will fall in this category per season. Not recommended for casual viewers.
Rank B

A legitimately good anime that I highly enjoyed personally. Does almost everything right and very little wrong. Top 20-50% per season. Recommended for most viewers.
Rank B+

Great anime that I would recommend to any fan in a heartbeat. Does something extremely well to stand above most others. Given about three times a season. Recommended for all viewers.
Rank A

Absolutely amazing anime that I would highly recommend to anyone. Benchmark for all others. I consider these classics or essential viewing. Only one or two animes a year deserve this score.
Rank S

Nearly impossible to achieve this score. Possibly controversial anime. Reserved for the best of the best and genre defining animes. Perfect and flawless. A Masterpiece. Only given out once or twice every 4 years or so. Only the top 1% of all animes earn this rank.
Perfect Rank

If you disagree with any of my scores, let's debate about it!

Essential criteria that I look for in animes and what the scores given are based on. Included are highly rated examples in each category.

Originality - What does this anime bring that hasn't been done before? Has it influenced/changed the genre afterwards?
Evangelion is inspired by many animes before it. But it gave the mech genre far more respect, credibility and character insight. Mahou Shoujo Madoka completely redefined the magical girl genre by giving it a far darker and serious tone while still being true to the genre.

Emotional resonance - Do I care or am I invested in these characters? Does the plot tell a great story? Does a thriller build bone chilling tension? Does this comedy make me laugh till it hurts?
I cry like a baby when watching most Ghibli films.

Excellence in genre - An anime that knows what it is and does it well. I don't expect a comedy/slice of life to have heartrendingly tragic moments. Does this harem show have cute girls that I fall in love with or cheer for? I don't need or expect an anime to be completely original but it must excel at what it does.
Azumanga Daioh doesn't tell a great story but it makes me laugh harder than nearly anything I've ever seen beforehand.

Direction - Does this action anime have inspired and fluid choreography? Are the shots well or creatively done? Is the series well paced? Is the tone done correctly to hold suspension of disbelief for the genre?
KyoAni and Shaft are known for their beautiful and creative shot selections.

Packaging/Polish - Does the opening set the tone for the show correctly? Does the sound design immerse you into the world? Are the voice actors well chosen for the role? Are the character designs well designed, attractive or appropriate? Does the music enhance every scene? Is this fantasy world well realized or developed that I want to know more? All of this ties an anime together into a cohesive package.
Spirited Away combines music, world building, character designs, storytelling, and character development into a stunning narrative.

Sending this newsletter out to all of the IS fanclub members to let you know that the club will become very active before the second season kicks off. Regular member cards as well as limited edition events are already under development and will be open when we finalise the designs for everything.

There is only one requirement needed to participate in all of the events that open within the club; that is to be the holder of a membership badge and number.

You can claim your official membership badges here if you have not done so already.

As some additional fun there will also be a variety of games that the staff will be creating which will entitle you to some rare limited edition cards as well on certain themes.

We are also currently seeking some more staff! If you are interested in applying for a position please do so here as we would gladly appreciate your help.

Thank you, for your second event participation, in One Divine's Valentine Bash! We hope for those who participated, enjoyed it to it's full extent, but unfortunately, yet again, some users did not receive gifts because of the some who did not feel like taking 5-10 minutes out of their life to actually do what they signed up. No animosity here, just pointing out something ♥ Now with that over, we will head on to new and different things. For now, we introduce a new game brought out by one of our members; JustRad. Name a Flaw, the details to this game will be seen here! I would also like to announce that we will soon be holding something brought back from the dead, though should be one of the most enjoyable of all activities in One Divine; One Divine's Art Competitions will soon be held in the club, and we would love to witness the artistic abilities of you all! So when the time comes, please check out the details and participate for a chance to have your work displayed and a nice award banner to boot!
