Random translator who cares too much about his anime/manga/books/VNs stuff.
Language collection (pick your poison):
I still have been trying to find an anime at least at the same level of Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu (so far, it STILL is -dated animation aside- superior even to other anime I rated 10/10, in an overall perspective). I wish I could rate it 11/10 like that one guy did to Nisemonogatari way back then, here on MAL.
I also still drop no anime nor manga, and for that, I pay the price of sticking around with freaking Shin-chan for the rest of my miserable life (and just saying, it's so difficult to get RAWs for that thing nowadays, just why...).
No longer in hiatus, but I'm not so sure when I'll finally finish the rest of this profile thing.
If I don't answer even if I'm online it means I'm just not in the mood or care enough to reply to your message. Straight to the point, that's pretty much it. Don't take it personally though, that's just how it is with me, and I rarely get remorseful towards anyone really. "I'm not a bad slime".
(UNDER CONSTRUCTION) Regarding How I Analyze My Stuff Before Rating:
The more I got to read books, watch movies, anime, plays (theatrical performances), blaze through some exciting manga, read carefully crafted visual novels (as well as kinkshaming-worthy eroge titles), enjoy a nice game, and overall anything fiction has to offer, the more I started to realize I should judge each work in regards of their own peculiarities and storytelling inside their respective genres, while also carefully considering what do they represent or at least did represent back in the day they were published/screened/presented (which can also be a double edge sword -which I will try to be as fair and square to them without trying to be harsh unless it's just that bad, since there are even Literary Masterpieces replete with these I will now mention- likely due to Values Dissonance issues).
Be it Execution, Presentation, Adaptation, Editing, Representation of a Particular Idea, Messages, Story, Characters, Music, Art Style, Animation, Overall Attention to Detail, Symbolism, Historical and Cultural Significance, Personal Enjoyment and Relatability the Work May Bring and of course how does the full picture stands on its own with all of these elements applied.
When I pick a work, I'll run through all of the content analyzing it with these in mind and rate it accordingly in its own genre. Genre-Hybrids, Genre-Roulettes and Genre-Busting works will be a bit more troublesome to handle in their own right, so I rather classify them either inside which is the more predominant, or just put a genre hybrid such as "romcom" as a genre per se, or in cases it really is something nearly undescribable in terms of classification (obviously, as per definition, Japanese stuff tends to go Widget Series, but that aside, most of these end up falling heavily into Metafiction, Magical Realism, experimental (a.k.a. exclusively experimental work such as Ningen Doubutsuen) and/or Comedy at some point, so it's not that much of a big deal), I'll put it as "Shiny Behemoth" (Umineko is probably the closest I have to that, and I would give it a masterpiece rating in either Metafiction, Mystery, Psychological or Drama genres anyway...not that these are the only heavily predominant genres in there either).
11/10 - Lair of Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu (aka Masterpiece among Masterpieces), for now. It would be too much of a hassle to reduce one point of every single show (and far too unfair with other animated masterpieces not to give them a 10/10). Thus, only in here, I shall state its well deserved place.
10/10 - Animated Masterpieces are found in here. Whether it is for their flawless plot elements (their presentation, execution, messages, overall content, always taking in consideration their respective genres, of course), pure art with no actual plot (Walt Disney's Fantasia has its place in this category, for example), both pure art with flawless plot elements in their own regards (hello, Mushishi, Kaiba and Tatami Galaxy), or just historical importance for their very own period of time (Namakura Gatana and alike find their place in here as well). I also include the best of their respective genres, with the exception of Ecchi, as it just is mostly a matter of pure guilty pleasure, and if it isn't, it normally goes under some other genre, doing more harm than good to it, as it is most of times (there are exceptions) pretty much irrelevant (the closest an anime arrived in that genre in especific for me was Prison School with an 8+/10... and no, I don't think I can put Yuri Kuma Arashi in this genre, as it isn't all all the main focus of it... though it remains one of the few that uses its sexual elements in the right way, as, for example, in the Monogatari Series, it mostly hurts what would be otherwise an espectacular tale.).
9/10 - Flawed Masterpieces (some elements are not exactly great enough to be a "10/10", like Tehxnolyze's crazy nihilistic approach to everything that kinda ruins a bunch of otherwise clever symbolical inputs, philosophical messages and thought-provoking themes) and some partial content of a masterpiece animation with the pretty much the same amount of quality goes here (c'mon, Mushishi overall would have 4-5 "10/10"s otherwise, I gotta equilibrate properly my stuff, it's dificult to just consider an especific alone when it's part of a much bigger thing altogether... in short, there are many exceptions).
8/10 - (Provisory) Awesome stuff with too many things that don't work altogether in a full overview of the content and its ideas, but that is nonetheless a very enjoyable ride, and at times, even superb use of several main tropes of which it is composed of. I've seen some of these make as much of a great use of their elements and messages as some of the titles I consider to be Masterpieces, yet unfortunately they are dragged down like a big chocolate cake covered with mud. Also home for many experimental anime that for sure did their part helping to establish something other shows in the future would make better use of, and anime that besides being quite formulaic following overused plot devices and cliches, masterfully stand out with their great execution of these in their own right (can escale further to absolutely epic 9/10 proportions such as TTGL if also adding some creative spice and effective messages to their content).
7/10 - (Provisory) Solid shows that rarely stand out from their own formula, albeit still providing a higher quality time than most of its not as well composed counterparts would (Mushibugyou is my by-the-book definition of this in the battle shounen genre, for example). Also where I would put highly creative anime that fails espectacularly to live up to their expectations, but at least tried to do something out of the ordinary and managed to retain a memorable impression after the run was over.
6/10 - (Provisory) I put guilty pleasures (including very enjoyable messy trainwrecks of the best kind) and okay anime in here. They don't stand out at all but are still good time killers to watch here and there, especially with friends who enjoy the same kind of guilty pleasure. Also includes most of my disappointing adaptations of great source materials, as long as it was at least enjoyable enough to watch and that would probably be sufficiently attention-grabber enough for people to go search for said better material out of their own volition and curiosity regarding what it was all about. But any less than that...
2/10 - (Provisory) Terrible!! These can't no longer even be considered "so bad, it's good/enjoyable" or even a guilty pleasure, they just suck, and will most liikely insult your intelligence.
1/10 - (Provisory) Why does this thing even exist!? This is the filth that even a living septic tank would find repulsive at best. Stay away!!
And of course, my tribute -not really mine, but you know what I'm trying to express- for the greatest one ever written (in my opinion, that will be yours too, if you actually manage to absorb all of its magnificent content):
