KEEP IN MIND that it doesn't mean I give generous scores that easily and that often. There are series I still enjoy a lot but still rate very low due to flaws I can't ignore or aspects I highly dislike. My mean score is pretty damn low mainly due to rating certain OVAs, specials, or some other extras that never saw the greenlight for high production value.
My Favorites in terms of anime need two or more of these qualifications:
1. At least have a score of 9 or 10 by me.
2. Attained at least above average in terms of enjoyment levels.
3. Have at least one or two prominent characters I really like or love.
If one wants to maintain validity in judgment when rating, either use the whole MAL rating scale from 1 to 10....or just don’t fucking use it at all.
Judging anime adaptations strictly based off their ties or fidelity to their respective source material is one of THE MOST ill-advised and idiotic things you can do as an anime fan.
F--K the "classics armor", it's probably the worst excuse to gas up any old-school show that likely didn't age well.
Screw MyAnimeList for not letting me be able to list more than 10 favorites without a paid subscription...smh.
When the legendary Hayao Miyazaki said "Anime was a mistake", he was right, but not in the way that many people still interpret it as of today. P.S. May I add that he's kinda a hypocrite?
Anime isn't a dying medium...western TV entertainment is. Those are the straight facts, and anyone who tells you otherwise should consider seeing a psychiatrist.
P.S. Where's your EGAO, desu?
Your friendly neighborhood “unconventional elitist".........DESU.
