A little bit about me: I typically watch anime purely for enjoyment and tend to rate my anime based off that mindset; I'm generally not very critical or over-analytical of most anime, though I've come to realize that the more and more anime I watch, the more critical/cynical I become of most anime.
A little bit about my rating system: If I thoroughly enjoyed the anime and really had no big problems with it, it gets an 8. If I enjoyed an anime but see that it definitely has some flaws or it never really stuck out to me, it gets a 7. If an anime is meh, it gets a 6. Anything below that pretty much coincides with MAL's description of the numerical ratings. I generally don't begin to rate a show until there are enough episodes to get a good grasp of the inner workings of an anime. I also tend to stick with a show until the very (and sometimes bitter) end and with every passing of Halley's Comet I may even drop a show.
As for reviews, I review what I feel like reviewing and I generally won't review a show until it is complete. I believe reviews based on an unfinished product and "first episode impressions"-type reviews will just give misleading information and are detrimental to the show as a whole. No professional in their right mind would ever review or even score an unfinished product; impressions have a place, just not as a review. Rant rant rant rant rant.
Anyway, thank you for reading, I hope you have a pleasant day. orz
For those on my Skype contact list
As you may well know, I was hacked. My password ended up being changed by the hacker and Skype won't help me with it even after I sent them a support request so just delete my name from your contacts for everyone's sake. I don't plan on making another one any time soon so, if you wish to contact me, send me a message on here and I'll get to it whenever possible.
There is no long-term benefit in getting facts wrong.
True strength lies not within not relying on others but in knowing when to rely on others.
Google is your friend.
Shoujo, where the only things that matter are characters.
Regarding random friend requests:
If you're going to send me a friend request and I don't really know you, at least send me a message explaining why you want me as a friend, otherwise I'm just not going to accept because I don't know you. That's about it about that.
