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
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.
