Ah, that makes sense!

Well, yeah, you're right when you say "having a love interest in itself detracts from the character". Claire wasn't distracted from her mission at all. But why did they have to show that a woman needs a man (or love) in order to grow/lead a fulfilled life/be truly happy? Why can't a woman be single and remain happy? That was my issue with that pairing and ultimately, why she couldn't be my #1 fav character. In that regard, Mikasa's better. Even tho she's obsessed with Eren, she's been so ever since she was a child. At that age, she didn't know better and as she grew, her feelings for him grew too. Plus, she was Eren centric from the beginning of the anime, and her character revolved+grew around that aspect of hers.
As for Saber "put the little girl aside while the men takes care of the real business" is practically what Alex said. He would always call her a "girl" and use it as a derogatory term, and that annoyed me. And Saber finally let his words get to her. smh.

There's nothing wrong with skewed gender dynamics so long as it's a product of the setting
But exactly what kind of a dynamic could genuinely justify 1 woman to 10 men? Except ofc a post apocalyptic world where mysteriously more women died than men. As for GoT, I agree completely. But try saying that to a fan's face :p That show is so trash. It's the ecchi version of Hollywood and I cannot for the life of me, understand how people justify unnecessary nudity, sexual objectification and abuse of women, as something that's integral to the plot. It's not. It's for TRPs. And it worked.

but if it's gender dynamics then it depends a bit more on the context
Very interesting. Mind elaborating?
As for Claymore, don't you think it would have been better if Claire didn't fall in love with that dude? I was under the impression they had a bro-sis relationship, till she kissed him. Totally took me by surprise, bc she immediately fell short of being a woman whose life did not involve a romantic interest. Same with Fate/Zero. All it took was a little speech by that Alexander guy to make Saber doubt who she was, and I thought to myself,"If this girl can be influenced this easily by words, how strong could she really be? Especially seeing how full of BS Alex's words were"

Surprised you didn't name fan favs Mikasa, Esdeath, Olivia Armstrong or even Hawkeye, for that matter.

Only one dropped show? That's dedication.

Good reviews and you've been here 10 years and have Tatsuki in your top list haha nice.
Sonal1988 Oct 16, 12:39 AM
Half my ratings wouldn't make sense, my old reviews are trash that deserve to be eradicated
I hear ya ­čśé I haven't even been watching anime for a yr and I'd say that my initial ratings would probs need an overhaul, along with my reviews. But eh, so much work.

I see you aren't actively watching anime or reading manga. Can't blame you. Grew tired of the medium or life got in the way? Perhaps both.
And oh, good God. Don't even get me started on sexism. As a woman, I'm more attuned to what's considered sexist, and when I pick up on those very minor details that are just so casually slipped in anime as facts, ah, well. The best way I take out my frustration on such anime is by giving them a poor score, honestly. Not much I can do beyond that. Or anybody else, for that matter. The problem lies in the massively patriarchal and 'traditional' system in Japan that still refuses to view women as, you know, human beings. Tch.

Greetings! I've recently just started a club with a very specific purpose and I was wondering if you were interested in joining and/or if I could use some of your reviews for it

The purpose of this club is to try and create a community of talented writers who would like to make a more reliable scoring system than the one currently provided by MyAnimeList. Instead of a show being scored by a hundred thousand no-names, we would have the scores for a show coming from well-written reviews by anyone who is willing to participate. All of these reviews will be able to be accessed through our forums, so the mean score for each show will be more personal, since you'll know who's contributing and who isn't, and you can read what everyone thinks.

If you're still not entirely sure if this club is for you, you can go HERE for more details

This is a very new club, so things are barely put together.

If you’re not particularly interested in joining, I would like to know if I can have permission to use some of your reviews for the aggregation.

"Several love stories... they will make you cry. Definite recommendation.
Love. Tragedy. Sadness. And a happy ending. (...)"

Did you just spoil the ending in the second line of your review? What. The f*ck?

Thanks for your review of Elfen Lied! :)

Good reviews dude!

On your Haruhi Suzumiya review, and possibly others, your apostrophes and some other puncuation have become messed up. Like ' has become ' - you might want to edit those out / correct them. Because your review on Haruhi is super popular! Hope you read this~
