I am Yozora's air friend, Tomo-chan-kun. Or, well, maybe not. Tomo is actually a play on my name, Thomas, and some site said it's the Japanese version, but.. eh.. that's probably incorrect. Aside from having genius naming skills, I also have epic taste in everything.
Anyway, ironic self-glorification aside... If my taste somehow sparks your interest - and the first part didn't scare you away - feel free to hit me up. I'm always up for a discussion, and if you just want to send a simple friend request, that's fine too.
I made this account just to keep track of the anime I watched, but after a while, I noticed I enjoy putting my thoughts about series into words. So if you're interested in that, you can find it in the comments (beware, not the tags) on my list. The more eleborate reviews are often for sixes and lower, but I've also written small ones for all the others (everything in completed, on-hold and dropped).
My review of Meng Qi Shi Shen:
Promises to have an actual story in the beginning, but uses it only to set up romantic tension in an underwhelming way, and any feeling of danger fuzzes out after the first few episodes. Its cooking scenes look good, but the anime only has those sparingly, and a few are competitions with absolutely no tension. Nevertheless, the interactions are often pretty funny, and a few episodes have a fun, adventerous feeling to them.
And if you're interested in statistics, here's my Anime+
It's based on the MAL descriptions, but I took some artistic freedom with the following ones:
3/4/5 (very bad - bad - average) becomes (bad - weak - mediocre): Transitioning from bad to average is just laughable. I think 'average' is a vague and shitty word anyway, so I use mediocre instead. I'd say the jump from bad to mediocre is still too big, so I placed 'weak' in between.
8/9 (very good - great) becomes (great - excellent): I consider 'very good' and 'great' to be synonymous. In my opinion, the term 'excellent' does more justice to a 9, and I use the term 'great' for an 8 instead of a 9. Not that any of this matters, but I wanted to say it anyway.
10 (Masterpiece) - Something I fell in love with on a conceptual level. Nothing about it actively bothered me.
9 (Excellent) - Really spoke to me in some way, and was an amazing watch all the way through.
8 (Great) - Has many distinctive qualities, and is well worth a watch.
7 (Solid) - Very likeable show. Has its problems, or isn't that exceptional in the long run, but does well for the most part.
6 (Fine) - Doesn't really speak to me, or has major flaws, but is still enjoyable overall.
5 (Mediocre) - I don't actively regret watching it, but its shortcomings are abundant, and might have made me drop it partway through.
4 (Weak) - Has some redeeming qualities, but is fundamentally flawed. Just a tiresome watch, overall.
Remaining are votes I'll probably never give, since I'm fairly picky about what I start to watch... Let's describe them anyway!
3 (Bad) - Its positives are futile, and I dislike it quite heavily.
2 (Terrible) - I liked absolutely nothing about it, and was either annoyed or bored beyond belief. Probably both.
1 (Atrocious) - Like a 2, except it deserves to burn in hell.
I should note that I watch anime out of basically all genres, and have a few shows I love out of most of them. That said, my preference usually goes out to these genres: comedy, romance (without romcom clichés), music, adventure, supernatural, mystery and the godly genres known as psychological and thriller.
