1. The best way to get better at writing is to read a lot and write even more.

2. Research is more important than opinion. Opinions are like aresholes. Everyone has one and they're usually full of shit. On the other hand, research will give you facts and a foundation upon which to build your own perspective and arguments - many of which you should be able to support with evidence or comparisons with other titles or works.

3. Never react. Always give yourself space to process what you've watched, and form an opinion in your own time. There's no rush. Anyone who believes that being a reviewer or a critic is some kind of time-sensitive or popularity-based competition is a deluded fool.

4. Try to avoid asking friends for feedback as they will not want to hurt your feelings by telling you anything bad. Getting better in anything is a struggle unless you have some kind of innate talent that far outweighs everyday logic, so it's usually better to develop a thick skin and get the harshest criticism you can.

5. Just because everyone else is covering it, doesn't mean you have to. Don't force yourself to work at the pace of the crowd as you'll burn out very quickly.

6. Don't just stick to anime and manga. There's a whole world of entertainment out there so explore it. We had generations of being ridiculed, bullied and beaten for liking games, anime, comics, sci-fi, etc, but now it's cool to be a geek and even former star footballers like Eric Cantona are making references to Captain Tsubasa in their videos, so if they're willing to open their minds and watch anime, why aren't anime fans willing to do the same and try other things? Give other media a chance and you'll find that your words will have greater weight because you will have a much broader perspective than the average anime fan.

Just some suggestions. Take them or leave as you will, and all the best with your writing!

No don't worry, it's fine

Aye thanks! Really any review with a 4/10 should be at the very top, I don't want BNHA to be the highest rated shounen of all time, so we need to fight the fans!

Ah man, that review took me a while. I would say that the review probably took 8 hours in total, but I also wrote it over the course of multiple days.
Arimias Jun 27, 3:17 PM
I've heard about that short film or whatever before yeah. Ill add it to my PTW since Im not sure why I didnt have it there already in the first place lmao. Thanks for the recommendation though, and Ill let you know my thoughts if I ever get around to it.
Arimias Jun 23, 7:34 PM
No problem man, glad I could provide some feedback.
supersmashness Jun 23, 12:10 PM
Interesting response, I for the most part understand what you're saying.

Either way, I think it's a good series. It's really not unique or original in a lot of ways, but it's fun and has some cool serious moments, although that's typical of shounens I guess lol

No problem :D

You should read something about BBCodes, they have everything you need (spoiler tags,etc.)

It's going good man. Been busy with work, but I'm holding up. What about yourself?

I haven't seen BnHA season 3, or any of the seasons in that manner, so I may not be the best person to ask for improvement advice. One thing that's a sore thumb about your review just by looking at it quickly though is the grammatical and spelling errors. Reviews should be proofread before submission. If English is not your native tongue, then you should specify that in the review. Also try to avoid using contractions. Not too sure what "1/3 pts" means, because in the art and animation section, you have "1/2 pts"

Other than that though, looks like a solid review. I can't really judge it any further than that since I don't know the story of BnHA.
supersmashness Jun 22, 4:01 PM
Uh sure I guess. The biggest flaw in the review as a whole is the spelling I guess. I understand if you're not natively English, but correct spelling helps cohesiveness exponentially. Your "story" section was decently thought out, but using "manipulative" to describe an anime is incorrect (at least, in this context it is). Also, I understand your criticism on the formulaic approach of the show, but at the same time the show IS apart of the superhero genre, which is obviously very formulaic and rarely diverges enough from its general idea to become unique enough. What it comes down to is whether or not the formula is used in an entertaining way. Your critique on the costume designs is also kind of flawed. Being a superhero show, all the superheroes will have costumes. That's basically just superhero 101 when it comes to writing a story within the genre. The costumes don't always need to improve abilities either. Look at Midoriya's costume: it's some stupid silly ripoff of All Might's design. The thing is though, that's exactly the point when you consider WHO Midoriya is a character. The same goes for most of the other characters I can think of. Bakugou's costume does actually boost his abilities though. Within the grenades on his hands, the sweat and stuff that builds up there is used to create even bigger explosions. He can't do that outside of his costume.
I also think your characters section is somewhat right, but not entirely. Midoriya, Mineta, and Bakugou are all indeed one-dimensional to a degree, so their characters aren't particularly special. Midoriya kind of develops in this season so I think that might actually be up for debate. Other characters, however, such as Todoroki (which you mentioned), Iida, Momo, Uraraka, and even All Might have a noticeable amount of depth and development to them though, which spans all the way back from the first season. You're probably not wrong about the relatability part either, though going back to the superhero genre aspect, that's kind of the point. When it comes to superheroes, a large part of their purpose is for the audience to feel like they can relate (by personality, obviously). It certainly helps that most of the characters are teenagers, who I assume are a large part of the fanbase. Your criticism of the music usage is kind of off, imo, as well. Studios aren't really going to make several new tracks for each season just to keep the OST "fresh", especially when it's already a damn good OST at that. The repetition of the music is meant to act as a sort of "key" for viewers, I would think. Whenever you hear the song when they're training, they're training. When you hear the action/fighting song, they're probably fighting. So on and so forth. It's something that really every anime, movie, game, any piece of media really, does. So really, using it as a critique is kind of shallow. Your last paragraph, from a storytelling standpoint at least, I do agree with. I think some sort of psychological threat would suit the show really well and do something to separate it from other shounens which often times have fake out deaths. While I don't think that every show needs to have an in-depth story in order to be good, I do agree that My Hero Academia would benefit from taking risks outside of its formula.

Oh alright, that's cool. And yeah simplicity is a better word to use, although I don't know if it's a word you can use in a justfied negative connotation as you sometimes do
supersmashness May 16, 10:59 AM
I don't know man, in my opinion I guess making sure your spelling and wording is perfectly understandable would be the most important thing. You oftentimes put apostrophes in the incorrect places and commonly use words like "basicity" which isn't even a real word (apparently it's used when referring to chemistry, but only then is it "used"). It makes your overall writing style more coherent if I don't have to pause and restructure your wording in a more comprehensible manner, though I suppose that could just be me.
Arimias Apr 29, 5:53 PM
Oh okay, no I didn't mind but it's alright.
