Hello people, welcome to my profile. I speak Spanish but I can write in English (with some help from the google translator). I prefer to keep my identity anonymous. I can only say that I like to watch series, as a hobby. Despite having watched anime for so many years, I don't consider myself an otaku, maybe I am, but I don't feel that way. Most of the anime I've watched have been seasonal anime. There have been few animes that I have watched out of season. Also, for about five years I haven't watched long animes (more than 25 episodes). I think the last one was Shamang King. This is because if I have to watch an anime, which is not "currently airing", I have to watch it straight away, without many days of interruption. When I was in high school I had much more time, now I don't, besides, I don't have to distract myself too much watching anime for a large part of the day, every day. I consider myself a lonely person, I don't interact much with people. And I'm studying at university and I'm 2 years away from finishing it. The career I study is on a topic that is closely related to the anime Kino no Tabi (ok maybe not much).
The recommendations are welcome, as long as they take into account my preferences that are visible in my favorites and the genres that interest me the most: Sci-fi, seinen, psychological, philosophy, drama, slice of life, comedy, thriller and mystery.
Scoring system: I recently changed my scoring system. Before the score could vary between a 4 and a 10. Now it is in the traditional style, from 1 to 10. Due to this change, the anime scores also changed. I have lowered the score to almost every anime I have scored previously. The scores fell between 0 and 3 points, so those who were close to 4 fell around 3 and 2 points, and those who were close to 10 fell 2, 1 or 0 points.
My rating scale:
I would like to score with decimals, but MAL doesn't allow it, however despite that here, on another website, I have the list of animes with decimals, much more precise and more orderly:https://anilist.co/user/Grimmer/animelist
Objectivity: I try to score between 1 and 10 points as objectively as possible (although I recognize that my subjectivity influences the score). I try not to rate the animation, the soundtrack, or the political, ideological or moral positions (everything said depends on the subjectivity of each one and their particular tastes, and also, I am not someone who knows about animation and its techniques, so I don't consider myself competent to try it), only the history and its development, more than anything its coherence, its congruence. The development (and the type of development depending on the genre of the anime, be it comedy, drama, or historical) must be able to explain most of what happens in the anime, from changes in the personality of a character or why they do certain actions, and even why certain events occur (it cannot be that everything happens by chance). And the more predictable it is, and the more conveniences it has, the anime's score will be lower.
Subjectivity: Now comes the most subjective part: I give a bonus to the score (+0.5 or +1) only if I really liked the anime and if I think it deserves it (for its originality or because it shows that it was done with great care or for another reason), such as Kino no Tabi that have a score of 9 (9.5 to be precise (it's in my Anilist account)). If I give an anime a score of, for example, 7.5 and I didn't like it enough, the score that remains on my list is a 7. There are some anime that I watched and rated before I had this system and the previous one, like Code Geass, so I would have to watch them again to rate them correctly, but not wanting to do it for now.
Dropped anime system: The anime that I mark as "dropped" are those that bored me, stopped liking me, ceased to interest me or didn't hook me until the fourth episode. If I start a new anime first I see if I like the first episode; If I don't like it, I'm not interested or it's so bad that it's not worth continuing to watch it, I'll leave it (I don't mark it as dropped), otherwise I'll continue until the fourth episode.
Hiciste clic, así que asumo que viste Serial Experiments Lain, y si no lo viste te pido humildemente que te vayas lentamente, esto es para los que adoran a Lain. Si al terminar el anime te quedaste con ganas de más, acá tengo algo que te va a gustar: La traducción al español del juego de SEL para ps1, traducción hecha por una buena persona que tuvo la valentía y las ganas de hacerlo (recomiendo que vean el blog de esta buena persona, publica cosas interesantes). La historia es diferente a la del anime, pero cada fragmento (o mejor dicho, archivo) vale mucho la pena. Esta historia es como un mundo aparte, se enfoca más en lo psicológico. Si no sabes en que orden leerlo no tengas dudas en preguntarme. Más abajo, en el otro botón, también dejo la versión en ingles que es interactivo y mas parecido al juego.
You clicked, so I assume you saw Serial Experiments Lain, and if you didn't see it, get out of here, this is for those who love Lain. If at the end of the anime you were left wanting more, here I have something that you will like: The english translation of the SEL game for ps1. The story is different from the anime, but each fragment (or rather, archive) is very worthwhile. This story is like a separate world, it focuses more on the psychological. If you don't know in what order to read it, don't hesitate to ask me.
