Most anime nowadays is total shit. If you have a recommendation for me, please do tell.
Despite the harsh intro statement to the profile, I'm a pretty approachable guy who likes stuff and doesn't mind talking to people about anime and other things. Feel free to shoot me a message, and I'll respond in kind.
Hi. My name is Levi. Yep. I play a lot of video games and table top role playing games, and am an aspiring author, as well as being on my way on studying to become a teacher. Currently, I'm not watching a lot of anime, nor reading manga, as most of the stuff coming out today are pretty bad, but I try to watch some select shows when I fancy a viewing. I might write things here sometimes: Clickety-click!
While I don't write a lot of them, I do like writing about and discussing anime. I try to hit every point and highlight negatives and positives alike, but I do probably have a preference towards bashing negatives. If you find anything you agree/disagree with and/or want to discuss, feel free to hit me up on PM or a comment below. [Hurr almost no one gives constructive criticism on MAL why do I even try ;o]
Current anime endeavour: none :o
Just found this again, randomly:
Kagura is mine, so you can't have her.
I don't care whatsoever what anyone else's criteria are, I judge based on my own experiences, not by some set objective anime scoring rule, hurr.
I tend to value Story and Characters the highest, but can give out plus/minus for art and sound if those departments are truly spectacular or absolutely god damned horrible. Enjoyment should be equal to my final score, because that's what I'm judging a show on - "How much do I enjoy it?"
Score definitions below:
10: Masterpiece, I guess. The best series I have seen are 10's, naturally. Obviously no anime are perfect, but I find it ridiculous to say that 10's are only reserved for perfect anime. All things have flaws, but some series' are so unbelievably good, they rise to the top of their medium and the viewer's mind. Those are my tens, at least.
9: Fantastic, but missing something that otherwise would have made it a favourite. Could be anything from a plot-twist being dumb or a few elements of the story, say characters for example, take away from the overall grade.
8: Very, very good.
7: Good stuff.
6: Decent enough for me to make it through without suffering all too much.
5: Barely made it.
4-1: Terrible. Hated every moment I was watching these. Some I was stubborn enough to finish.
Scores into recommendations:
10: Highly recommended for everyone.
8-9: Highly recommended, especially if you like the genre.
6-7: Kind of recommended, but only if you like the genre.
5: Only recommended if you disagree with my negative thoughts on the series.
1-4: STAY AWAY.
