So, I find grading things to be a very difficult task. I am a very indecisive person. Also, I am not immune to time, my opinions change. That climax-induced satisfying feeling after finishing a series can fade over time. Romanticizing old favorites may elevate a score where present standards aren't met. Another factor is what mood I was in when I entered the scores. It's sad because at times I look at my lists and think "Wow, I graded that harshly..." Maybe I should go back and edit some of them... but then what if my first score was a more accurate reflection of the series as a whole? Not to mention I'll probably end up with an overwhelming number of "8" scores (I'm easily satisfied, and "8" is a satisfying number). Ah, but other times I know exactly what score I want to give a series and lament at the fact that I can't give it an "8.7". I guess you could say that I'm unstable (Read: Zetsubou-sensei Ch 20).
That said, please take most of my scores with a grain of salt. If it's scored "7" or higher then I really did enjoy watching/reading it. If it's "6" then I found redeeming qualities about it but I also had some issues with it (or at least my memory does). I rarely score anything below a "5" because I naively believe that there is always something to find redeeming/amusing in a series no matter how bad - otherwise it's not worth watching far enough to grade.
Eh?! If you've actually read the above and are still with me, well... thanks, I appreciate your attentiveness. But I'm afraid I'm not very exciting. Obviously my primary hobby is anime and manga. I like to write - but I only do so when prompted. I love making AMVs, though I'm slow at it. I used to draw quite a bit, but not so much now. I like to start sewing and craft projects - finishing them is another matter. I enjoy video games, but I rarely play them over a long period of time (I prefer games that can be finished in less than 20 hours or ones that are easy to get back into after a hiatus). I'm shy, even on the internet - but when I do type something I tend to ramble (apparent isn't it?).
Senien, josei, mature shoujo and shounen titles, comedy (low and high-brow), slice of life, drama, survival, mystery, yaoi/boys love, yuri/shoujo-ai... er, I'm game for just about anything
