I am a lover of anime and an aspiring writer, hoping to live a creative life and entertain people with strong emotions and thoughts. So naturally I enjoy critiquing and looking at the different aspects of story-telling, wishing to learn how to sharpen the portrayal of those innermost fantasies we have.
I am rather selective in what I review, mainly to avoid repeating points I've made before, and to have a specific topic in mind when delving into an anime.
When looking at a new title to review I ask myself some basic questions. First and foremost, what does the story want to convey at its heart and how well does it deliver this message? Secondly, how fleshed out and developed are the characters? And finally, how well does it live up to its genre?
I hate aimless slice-of-life with few exceptions, and I hold a personal love for death tournaments that I can't help. While I don’t see anything wrong with being biased on those two points, I do my best to judge each show by its own standards.
