Anime Relations: Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan
In the early hours of the 3rd of November 2018, I decided to remove all of my scores.

Before removal, I had a mean score of 7.91, which some considered abnormally high and worthy of criticism. I simply enjoyed what I watched and that's all I wanted to do.

Eventually, I realised how much of a chore it all was. I had to keep justifying my scores to toxic people, I had to stress over what score to give an anime, I fretted about whether or not I gave the right score, etc. It was sucking away at my enjoyment of anime.

Scores are there more for other people than yourself. I know how much I enjoyed or disliked something, and that's what matters the most. Scores are mostly there for others to judge you, and I really didn't need that.

I realised I didn't need scores, so I removed them all and now I feel freer.
