Just an Egyptian teenager that likes watching anime and playing video games.
I plan on not dropping any anime no matter how awful and painful watching it was (and will eventually continue watching the stuff I already dropped)
I watch all genres of anime except mecha, ecchi, hentai, yuri, yaoi and zombies (i hate mecha anime, i stopped watching hentai and other stuff, yaoi is too gay and i'm so bored of zombies) but that doesn't mean i won't watch them from time to time and if they're good. My favorite genres would be: slice of life school comedies and psychological anime. Sci-fi can be included to but i'm pretty specific in what i like in them.
For the favorites part (if anybody actually checks those stuff), in the anime part, I add my favorite installment of the franchise to not put the same anime every time (for example, I have the disappearance of haruhi suzumiya in my favorites but other installments aren't there. it means this movie is my favorite in the franchise but i still love all of them). For characters, my favorite chars are usually the ones that give me a good laugh, are too smart or the ones that go through too much psychological suffering/breakdown. For people, the top entries is for favorite voice actors and bottom few are for favorite bands/singers.
Those characters deserve being in those "Top 10" down there too but it's too much to have over 9 characters from the same series in a Top 10 so I guess I'm moving them over here. If anybody will ask: "Why are they all from monogatari?". Idk, All of them are very likable and I love every single character in that franchise. Those are just my favorites of the favorites in the franchise.
Probably inaccurate considering i'm only using MAL's sorting by list by finish date. I also begin counting starting from my watching of Death Note as i count everything before it as my "childhood anime" excluding Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal which i consider as a special case.
This will start with Summer 2015 as it is the first season I technically start watching seasonal anime in. I didn't watch many anime during Summer and Fall 2015 so I consider Winter 2016 as the official start. Each season will have 2 categories, Favorite Anime of the Season and Hidden Gem of the Season. I'll include movies and OVAs in both favorites and number of watched anime depending on whether I think they deserve to be included so it'll be so random sometimes. I'll also include things I ended up watching later.
The start of my seasonal anime watching. Didn't watch much back then but that season lead to me adding many anime to my PTW over time.
Total Anime Completed: 4
It was the season where I was considering the actual start of watching seasonal anime frequently. At that time, I picked up the only things that caught my eye. Checking back after a while, I'd still only pick the same anime and nothing more. It was a lame season like pretty much all Fall seasons.
Total Anime Watched: 8
My ratings are totally based on my personal enjoyment of shows and how I remember it in the weeks/months after I completed them.
10: an anime I love and would gladly rewatch again. I like every aspect of it even if some parts weren't the best
9: something I enjoyed a lot and will probably rewatch it at some point of time. I felt something was missing from them but they were still great
8: I liked them and might rewatch a few episodes of them some time later
7: good but not the best
6: they are bad for the most part but there are some funny scenes every now and then to make it good
5: extremely average anime with nothing special.
4: bad, i sometimes enjoy shows ranked 4 more than the ones ranked with 5 but it depends on the anime
3: very bad, it just fucks up so hard at everything but still manages to have at least a few moments to not make me give it a worse rating
2: awful, this one is just the worst of the worst. this anime is just a pain to watch and i sat there wondering why i started it every second i'm watching it. it makes me very dissatisfied by the end of every episode and makes me very satisfied when it ends cause it's finally over so i can proceed to forget about it.
1: unwatchable. this is a mistake by the human kind. every moment of it is a moment of suffering and torture. this should have not existed in the first place as it is just inhumane to even make. as of right now, no anime has had the (opposite of) honor of being given a 1 by me as i tend to look at the slightest good thing of an anime. if i gave something a 1, it's probably after breaking my rule and actually dropping this shit.
Edit: The Great Honor of being the first shit to get a 1 rating by me goes to: The Reflection
Edit2: The honor for the double 1 goes to: Shichisei no Subaru and Lord of Vermilion: Guren no Ou
i like most genres but i sometimes judge anime like i'm some kind of a critic. i give predictable anime/anime filled with cliches low ratings unless they make up for it with something else (e.g. plot twists, good art, good moments....etc).
you can also check the tags section to see how i think about the anime. for the anime with no tags, i either have nothing to say about them or i'm waiting for them to finish airing if they're still airing
don't hesitate to send me a friend request. 11 times out of 10, i will be accepting them
