Heeeey! Um....well...errr..no not really haha...Ill just keep working things out though...so don't worry about that!

Anyways, its good to hear from you again! What have you been up to? Got plans tonight/tomorrow? Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

PS. You've never even been on Skype!

Okay, that's it. I'm watching it tonight! Lol, sad to say, but I would mind seeing a hot rapist in that situation.

Hmm, Paradise Kiss doesn't seem so bad after all. Hanazakari no Kimi-tachi e sounds like a hilarious story! How is it Sci-Fi though? I hate to judge, but some ppl can't appreciate true works of art if they find BgI to be of poor taste. Lol

Doing summaries is bad.
My point is that you can analyze anything without including spoilers and at the same time make the reader understand if the show is what he looks for or not.
The formula looks like:
1. You state something about the show/characters or w/e
"The story of SY is a complex one,"
2. You provide the explanation for this (the longest part)
"because it takes on really intersting aspects of human society with all its ups and downs. It doesn't make things perfect, but instead provides only actions, which depending on the point of view you decide to take on, they can be either good or evil. The show focuses on several questions like What is the requirement in order to be accepted as a human being?, How education can change humans and how a society that might look alien to us can prosper? and How could humans possibly exist and progress if they had been a lot stronger?. The views on it can differ a lot from person to person and this story might even stir up interesting debates. Also, SY doesn't give the viewer a single way to look up at things, but lets him decide this for himself."
3. you might (or not) add up a short sentence about how you perceived this aspect
"This is a thing that not many anime deliver so well and I was forced to analyze things instead of simply watching them happen."
There you go. Full on analyze with zero spoilers/summaries.

Now you do the same about everything else
several points regarding just the story besides complexity:
-originality
-pacing
-plot twists
-consistency
-presence of cheap moves (crappy cliffhangers or Deus Ex Machinas)
-realistic (or no)
There are more ofc, I just named the ones that 1st got into my head.
Also if we take the same SY you can instantly notice by these points that we have as well some negative aspects to it:
-the story is quite predictable
-the pacing is crap *cough* *cough* I mean... It is very slow paced and a lot of people might not like it.
which are things that kinda should be mentioned in any real SY review >_>

Good luck if you want to continue writting reviews. And if you do, develop a bit of a critic view on things. Seeing bad stuff about things might be harder tho xD

I'm really glad I could help you and you're absolutely welcome!
I hope that I can read more of your reviews in the future.

Enjoyed your SY review
Valik93 Dec 14, 2013 6:07 AM
comment on SY review:
1. You focus solely on your own personal perception of the show. (its not like you shouldn't at all, but you should keep it as low as possible)
2. Biased. Not trustworthy at all. There are obvious flaws in the show that you didn't notice (you could name the flaws, but later add something like "I personally found this to be of no major importance, its all about taste."). Also because of them (flaws), giving a 10 mark in a review looks bad.
3. add more info and actual reviewing. You say that you liked it, but for example as a reader I see no damn reason why whould I like it. You must focus here on providing enough info for me (the reader) to decide if the show is worth watching or not.

......There's a hot student with blue hair? Hmm, was he the rapist? I'm becoming tempted now. Lol

I have so many shounen-ai and yaoi titles on my PTR list that I'm pretty set with those. Lol, I've been skeptical about Paradise Kiss for awhile, whether it's as romantic as it's claimed to be. I'm finding a lot of searches for Hana Kimi. :-/.. What's the full name?.. Hana Yori Dango seems really good, and the artwork is similar to BgI! A lot of ppl complain about BgI's artwork, but I love it!

"P.S. I still pretty much suck at reviews, but I'm trying! Criticism is highly appreciated, but please be civil."

Your reviews aren't bad. Not at all. I just find them to be a bit too subjective. When writing a review, you have to be as objectively as possible.
http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=575725
This page will help you. Really.

I've just read your "Shinsekai yori" review, and to be honest it's a fairly written review. I was only a little concernced about the 'I's and 'Me's in it. Just like I said, try to be as objectively as you can.

I hope I was civil enough? ;)
Demi_V Dec 12, 2013 3:26 AM
You're good, b/c I shut off Enzai after the first gang rape scene! It was so bad that I threw up constantly the following day. :-/.. #tragic.. I'm glad I didn't stick around!

Thanks for the feedback on my BnP review! One thing I dislike is that some of the downvotes come from ppl who say it isn't as funny and sarcastic as the others. I refuse to go along with those trolls.

I might try what you reviewed first and will try the other versions if I like this one.

Words cannot express how much in love I am with Bokura ga Ita! I'm craving for another romance manga like it, but I may end up rereading it! You wouldn't happen to know of any suggestions, would you?

Thanks for giving me another hentai to try!
