Hi! Sorry you didn't enjoy Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, I was the one that recommended it to you for Cheeky Santa. Thanks for being gracious about it anyway in your impressions, hopefully it'll go better next time!

Oh? Thank you very much for reading it!

1) Naked Lisa Lisa. I think it's perfectly fine and SFW, but I'm not sure how MAL's guidelines would feel about that, lol
2) I quite enjoyed it! If there were more episodes I'd definitely see it getting anywhere from 7-9. Also, on that note, the live action version of TSKR is actually REALLY good, IMO
3) Yeah, you can read my novels here: If you do read them, I hope you enjoy them! :D

Thanks for your work of investigation around the 1981 Special of Hashire Melos. This format isn't always distributed in home video, but if I ever come by a Japanese raw, I will certainly provide English subs.

every entry i added to PTW, i made sure to count the number of episodes and put the total number on the tags
then you can export to excel, with excel wizardry you can get the total number

@ Gaussian: In the early days I did more grooming and pruning, but with now almost 1500 entries everything is slow and cumbersome. MAL hasn't good tool support. I find myself handing out many ratings 7-3, and "too few" very good and very bad ones. So from time to time I promote and demote a few. Basically anything in 8/9/10 is of similar quality, and the higher two basically mean they touch something personal for me. The problem with media types is common, OVA and 100 episode shows just don't work well together on the same scale. Many people (including me) factor that in by rating OVA 1-2 points lower, i.e. factor in run time. But there's no hard rule I use. I understand that for AMV this must be even worse.

Important point: offers you to see your average and distribution based on watch time OR title count. In the former, my average goes up to 7-ish territory. Other sites such as anime-planet or also offer other views, not only the title count MAL version.

Overall, I'm a lot more relaxed these days because sheer mass seems to regulate itself pretty well. I check every few weeks and if all looks half-way OK, that's fine. I don't really watch bad shows to balance the distribution, but fortunately I'm a sucker for 80s and 90s OVA. Those are a reliable source of < 5 ratings with only reasonable time investment.

Marimite seems to have a large Latin following as I run into a lot of Spanish/Portuguese(?) AMV's for it on Youtube. Maybe because they tapped Spanish voice-actors for a Spanish dub (if you expand the Characters & Staff menu you'll see that), or the larger Christian demographic among those countries, maybe. Someone did an AMV of Touko's facial expressions with Spanish captions which I actually took the time to translate for myself (fortunately for me it was just single words or short phrases). I'll spare you the link (for once :) plus it's a tad spoilery in places anyway.

Thanks for the friend request :)

Looks like your post filled a lot of holes for you (including my info dump on Marimite lol). Speaking of which I finally got around to correcting a couple of typos on those quotes. When I made them I lifted them direct from the fansubs but it's on me for not noticing them earlier and then putting it off. Linking them in a post finally goaded me to action though. The typos were "all right>alright" and "you're>your".

You are right in taking the context into account when rating a show and that is how most of the time I proceed too. Besides the seasonals I am watching Princess Tutu right now and it has similar genres to Fruit Basket (comedy, drama, romance, fantasy, mystery) and it too uses shoujo-ish character archetypes (like Myuuto, the sad-eyed, lonely prince-sama, who is both in personality and appearance seems similar to Yuki in FB) and there are a few scenes with over the top comedy in this too, which could be called "childish" but in spite of that I like this anime; perhaps because it has the nostalgic mood and the endearing charm of the old-school tales (though, as I have heard, the tone will get darker after a few episodes).

Princess Tutu has been on my PTW list for a while like you had Shouwa Genroku and there are other series among your favourites (like Monster or GTO) that I have my eyes on for a long time and based on what I have heard about them those too put me under the same kind of pressure you have mentioned :)
Ishitateso Nov 11, 2020 6:42 AM
Hi, thanks for your appreciation, though I don't know where it has come from :) (I mean how did you find my profile). As regards Fruit Basket, the first season had its moments and arcs that made me emotional, and I regard highly shows that focus on characters dealing with trauma and their inner demons but in itself that doesn't necessarily make an anime good (mostly because how those themes and characters are presented). What made me drop it in the end was - on the one hand - that most of the side characters and their behaviour were irritating af., like for example the shouting high-strung boys, or the hyper-aggressive girl (Kagura), the brain-dead Yuki fangirls, or the exaggeratedly effeminate and theatrical Ayame Souma and so on...
Let's take the latter one as an example to make myself more clear, since him especially irritated me - I didn't have problem with his effeminacy or theatricality in itself, but instead how and to what effect those traits were portrayed.(If you have seen Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu you know that one of the main characters' (Bon) demeanor could be described with the same words even so he is in my favourite characters list.) In Fruit Basket these attributes (and those of the other characters I listed above) are so exaggerated and twisted for the sake of comedy that, in the end, that made those characters irritating to me beyond words. And this same comedy was what ruined the otherwise promising story as well because it too frequently broke the tone or mood that the previous scenes might have upbuilt. Because of that it was a struggle to watch some of the episodes where the aforementioned characters showed up and done their usual antics in more then one scenes, and in the end I just could't take it anymore. Let's not mention that at the beginning it was not easy to digest the premise "cute boys turn into cuter little animals by a hug" but I had seen weirder shit before, so that was not my main problem.

It’s time to ditch the text file.
