Loyal long time MAL member deserving of an "Honorary Moderator" Title.
My name is Akemi Mokoto. I am an anti-censorship activist and TV news Photojournalist. I own the Photography studio, Otaku Photography in Virginia Beach and a news stronger organization called HADS Wire Service. I run the [url=http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?cid=135]Lolicon Defense Task Force[/url], I am also the Owner and Director of Special Media for @PCALive(Twitter). I am a Contributing Photographer with Getty Images, Real Estate Photographer for various Hampton Roads real estate companies, former Breaking News Editor with PZ Feed, trained SKYWARN Spotter with the National Weather Service and Chesapeake CERT Volunteer.
I believe my first Anime was either Yu Yu Hakusho, Inuyasha, or Cardcaptor Sakura, or Neon Genesis Evangelion. What I believe made me become a bigger Anime fan was Fooly Cooly(FLCL). The first Anime I passionately fell in love with was Saikano, which I first saw after I picked up a copy of volume 1 from a local library. I spend an average of $7,000/year on Anime, manga, and products related to them(figures, shirts, posters, etc) and I drive an Itasha.
When judging an anime, I tend not to simply consider my personal taste or level of enjoyment, but objective things that makes a work of fiction, particularly anime, quality - great works. These include...
1) Plot consistency/Continuity
2) Animation quality
3) Character development
4) Script Quality
5) Character design
10) A Conclusive Ending
#10 isn't generally required in most circumstances. And all of these are entirely dependent on the genre, theme and target audience. So, for example, I wouldn't expect an anime intended to be funny only to be an anime that's supposed to be a work of quality writing. I have personally enjoyed a lot of anime that I could also admit were objectively average or bad. Just as you can eat McDonald's and enjoy it but realize you're eating garbage made by an idiot.
HOW I RATE ANIME:
10 - Among the best anime I've seen/flawless
9- Almost perfect but missing the IT factor
8- Very fulfilling and satisfactory
7 - Good enough for me, but pretty basic
6 - Tedious to watch
5 - Sterotypical from star to finish & lucky I didn't drop it.
4 - I wish I dropped it sooner, if I didn't already drop it.
1-3 - Likely dropped or hated with a passion.
