MAL Related FAQ's
When did you first start watching anime?
I started watching anime the summer of 2015, and I have loved it as one of my hobbies ever since. The only anime I’ve watched before I ‘officially’ started watching were Naruto and Bleach (you won’t find Bleach on my MAL though :P).
What are your favorite genres of anime?
I tend to like slice of life anime as well as dramas paired up with either romance or psychological themes! I personally don’t mind forced drama; when you are watching anime to ‘tag along for the ride’ with the characters, drama archetypes of all sorts give a wonderful, thrilling experience.
I notice that your MAL average rating is quite high! Care to explain?
I have been humbly graced by the fact that there are very few anime that I’ve watched that I would consider ‘bad’. Even though there are anime that I dislike, my judging criteria is not heavily influenced by my enjoyment for a show. When rating I come into terms of how other anime viewers would view the anime as well. I have not yet decided to venture into the territory of terrible anime yet, and I am not sure whether or not I should commit my time to watching low ranked shows. Thus, my average rating is quite high, and if MAL graded based on decimal points it would be a lot higher! :)
I see that you haven’t dropped any anime! Why is that?
I give myself a policy to give every anime I watch the benefit of the doubt. When I start an anime, I always intend to finish it unless special circumstances occur. Of course, as seen through my average rating I haven’t really watched any bad anime yet so I haven’t had a valid reason of dropping one so far. If there is an anime I put on hold for a while, it is typically because there are other anime challenges I have to get done before picking up the series again!
Where did your username, Sandrean, come from?
Sandrean is the name of my free trial World of Warcraft level 20 blood elf priest! I created the character in around 2012 and have been using the tag ever since!
What is the first anime series you completed since you ‘officially’ started watching anime?
To my surprise, my gateway into anime was The IDOLM@STER, and as a guy it may seem really strange. But I love music, and I stumbled upon this anime while browsing the internet. I’ve watched this anime twice already, and I’m pretty biased towards it. Maybe it’s time to lower that rating…
What is your favorite character/’dere’ type?
My personal favorites are Kuuderes and Danderes. Some notable examples for me would be Shiina Mashiro, Kawai Ritsu, Chizuru Hishiro, Akiyama Mio, and Sonoda Umi.
