- If the series is base off a light novel, visual novel, game, etc. that I don't know, I will not compare it to the original material (ex: Sword Art Online/Bakemonogatari/Nisekoi)
- If the series is base off a light novel, visual novel, game, etc. that I do know, I might compare it to the original material (ex: Devil Survivor 2/No.6/DRAMAtical Murder)
- Original material is better in many ways, I don't shove all my love and hate into a series
- Once again, solely on entertainment. I don't want to put alot of effort into judging a show/series
My scores are usually an average 7, 8, or 9. However some are actually 7.5 and 8.5, I round them up. If you see something on my list that is higher then the series is actually graded for, you know why. I don't give a score out of 10 unless it's SO good that everyone must watch it kinda thing. Anything 4 or under is crap that I wasted my time on, so don't watch it.
For new series/unaired, "Test" just means I'm trying out the series. I give it about 3 episodes, and if it manages to hold my interest, I'll watch it to the very end. If it doesn't, its instantly DELETED.
Manga in my dropped list has reasons to be there: boring, slow translation= forget, lazy, simply lost interest. However I might re-think and will give it another try.
