Lazy writer wannabe constantly distracted by everything (even writing all of this is an excuse to skip working on my novel, dammit Lelo).
I like to give everything a chance, no matter the bias I can have about it, and it's rare for me to actually drop a show (and there's always a reason for that). I tend to see something good in everything, so I focus more on the good aspects of certain shows instead of bashing them for their flaws (unless there's just too much of the latter). That's also because the point of anime/manga is to be entertaining and nothing more, and even something terrible can be memetic enjoyable.
I'd like to say that "I love to discuss with people about shows and their flaws and strong points", but considering how internet works, it's more along the lines of "if I get a chance, I like to discuss with everyone. Otherwise, I love to see people raging and flaming about literally nothing because they didn't like a show".
Jokes aside, I like other people's opinions and the more a discussion is calm and positive, the better.
So yeah, I'm kind of a really generic and boring person, am I not?
It's who I am, so if you still want to talk with me and/or send a friend request, well... thank you.
I think it's pointless to say what are my favourite series/characters since you can just read my preferences in my anime/manga list, but I only have one thing to say: if Gintama is not in your top 5 of favourite series of all times there's something wrong with you.
(jk obv, but I really can't understand how anyone could not like Gintama. Seriously, I believe in personal taste and opinion, but Gintama is simply... universal. If someone doesn't like it, something in the universe is not right, the Force is out of balance or some stuff like that)
I'm also a huge Yu-Gi-Oh! fan so don't take my votes about this series and its spin-offs too seriously, I rate each of them in a 1-10 "YGO scale" instead of a regular 1-10 "anime scale".
Also, I usually give 10 to those series/movies that left a great impact on me and that I never get tired of rewatching.
To understand that, here's more details about my ratings:
No rating - I'm still not sure about it and I need to maybe rewatch the series, OR I don't care enough about it to even think of a vote. Could be either of those.
1/10 - Something that shouldn't exist. That's the only possible reason (for me) to rate a show 1/10. It's not bad, it's not stupid, it's beyond all of that. It's something that is literally pointless in its whole existence and should have never been made.
2/10 - N/A (for now)
3/10 - It's memetic bad. It's wrong on so many levels it basically becomes kinda enjoyable for the sake of MEMES. Nevertheless it's really bad in every aspect. I usually rate 3/10 anime adaptations/spin-offs/sequels of something I know that fail miserably in what they were trying to do.
4/10 - Something about it was good. The animation, the basic plot, the concept. Just... something was very appealing. But I either HATED it or was bored to death watching it.
5/10 - Pretty bland, it's the "grey zone" of my ratings. The show was neither good nor bad, it didn't manage to be memorable in any sense OR, if it was an adaptation, was confusing and not well structured, but not at a 3/10 level.
6/10 - I generally liked it but it had some problems OR I didn't particularly liked it but it was technically good. I'm glad I saw it and I may rewatch it sooner or later. I often rate 6/10 second seasons of show I watched/I'm watching that weren't as good as the first ones, OR shows that didn't really grab me but were easy/appealing to watch. 6/10 it's my most versatile vote.
7/10 - I liked it and it was good. The story and/or the animation and direction were good, and I may rewatch it. Nothing more to say, it's an actual "Yep, I liked it", but it wasn't more than that. It's often a 6/10 that was especially good in a single aspect (for example the animation).
8/10 - Really good series, I still remember a lot and keep rewatching some parts of it. I'm generally pleased and satisfied with an 8/10 show, but I usually hope they were a little more of that. I want a lot of my 8/10 to be at least 9/10, but they didn't do enough to earn that vote in my opinion.
9/10 - The show was great in basically everything I can think of. The soundtracks were great, the animation were great, the plot, characters, setting were great, it was just really really enjoyable to watch, and I often rewatch it, either some episodes or the entire series. A 9/10 could also be a show I didn't really expect to like and/or was able to surprise me.
10/10 - All my votes have a huge personal taste component, but I try to be as "objective" as possible while rating a series (even tho objectivity in critique doesn't quite exist). But that's only for the 1-9 scale. The way I give 10/10 to a series is completely subjective and it's probably different from the objective vote I would give to it. So, I rate 10/10 shows that may actually be 9/10, 8/10 or even 7/10 in my own objective scale, but that meant something to me on a personal level: those are shows that I constantly rewatch and constantly think about, shows that left something to me, helped me grow as a person or taught me something really important. Those are shows that I hated to know were over, but I was also really happy to see complete their own story.
The 10/10 is a really personal vote.
