Indeed, I have the same problem :) my mean score is relatively low because of all the random things I've watched many years ago and hated, but I couldn't just ignore that stuff when creating a list, so I had to at least try and re-watch it partially to give a proper score. And some stuff I ended up omitting from my list anyway, like horrible battle shounen spin-off movies and some random specials. If I rate all that stuff, my mean score will go even below 5 lol not to mention it'll be painful to try and re-watch for the purpose of rating. So, I expect improvement in terms of the mean score too, unless I decide to be too adventurous (which I kind of am already, since I plan to watch 1 anime from each year, starting from the earliest available, and I'm sure there will be years without super interesting choices and I'll end watching something more or less unenjoyable).

Thanks for the friend request :) oh, I also forgot to ask you in that thread if you use the default MAL descriptors for your ratings or not. I kind of found them to be too imperfect, distasteful and judgmental in general, so I decided to use my own interpretation of those numbers. Of course, now there is a sad side effect of me underrating almost everything :p since MAL average is so inflated, but that's the price I'm willing to pay.

Alright, that's awesome. I hope to hear from you soon then if you have the time to watch it again.

I see, that does make sense. Mizuka has a genuine love for Kouhei while Misaki and Akane don't. Those two having sex with him is, like you said, a coping mechanism for them to deal with their problems (Misaka dealing with her blindness and Akane dealing with her missing childhood friend). Thus, their connections to Kouhei aren't strong enough for them to remember him.

This is completely different with Mizuka, eho has genuine romantic feelings for Kouhei and is truly concerned for him, thus the connection he has with her is far more powerful and meaningful. It also keeps him more "grounded". Their connection with each other is what allowed Mizuka to remember Kouhei. This also lets Kouhei use their connection as a guide so that he can come back/escape from the Eternal World a year later and reunite with Mizuka, the one he's truly in love with and vice-versa. She's the only one who genuinely loves him, and so he comes to truly love her as well, thus the two reuniting a year later in their classroom after he returns from the Eternal World. Theu then become a couple.

Your theory makes a good amount of sense, and it does make everything that happened in the OVA understandable, and make sense in context. Weird that we don't see Misaki and Akane again in the final episode of the H-OVA. Are they still around? Hope to hear from you soon.

So, both Misaki (episode 1) and Akane (episode 2) completely forget about Kouhei the next day after he spends time and has sex with them (Misaki tells him that she doesn't know him at all on the roof when he comes to meet her again, and Akane looks at him like a stranger at the place she's always at)? Is it because the bond he developed with them wasn't strong enough to allow them to still remember him while he's already disappearing to the Eternal World? I know True Stories follows the story of the VN more closely and faithfully, but it's weird that Kouhei will spend time with Misaki and Akane and thus have sex with him, only for them to completely forget about him the next day. I would think the OVA follows one route or something.

Mizuka was the only one who still remembers him, despite her forgetting the events of the two of them having sex yesterday? When Kouhei finally disappears in front of her, right after she tells him that she hasn't forgotten about him, Mizuka still remembers him (due to their strong bond with each other) and holds hope that he will eventually return, which he does a year later thanks to his strong bond with her (which he uses as a guide to leave the Eternal World), coming back to and reuniting with her in their classroom where the two hug each other and become a couple, with their class cheering them on. This means that Kouhei's bond with Mizuka is developed much stronger than his bond with Misaki or Akane? I hope to hear from you soon.

Glad you do. I just dont like the genre and getting complicated.

After coming home from a long day of work, I prefer to watch comedies, SoL and mostly the laid back kind anime. Never had time for steins;gate

Pretty good now. Just haven't been watching anime much recently.
Well back in November there was a big wildfire in California that destroyed my whole town. So it was a pretty crazy experience and I've been trying to get back to stable living since.

Hey I read your Armitage III review and would like to address some incorrect information you gave on it. The issue is Ghost in the Shell is based on a manga that came out in 1989 and this anime was released 1995.

Hi, i really enjoyed your review for Hakkenden. Especially the beginning part where you put words on my own thoughts exactly by calling it fascinating and boring at the same time. I dont understand how the series could be so fast paced and still feel dragged out and bland. It could have been great for sure.
RediceRyan Mar 16, 2018 6:20 PM
Book update? I still remember!
RediceRyan Aug 14, 2016 2:41 PM
How do you feel about the Rewrite adaptation so far? Is it really your 6th favorite anime?
I wish it was done by Kyoani and it was 26 episodes long instead of 13.
RediceRyan Jul 14, 2016 10:41 PM
That does sound chaotic. You've mentioned wanting to get into sports broadcasting/journalism before. So you're working with college athletes now? That sounds great.
Now that I look, it doesn't seem like you've seen many sports anime. I know you'd love Cross Game.

When you do finally finish the book and get it on amazon make sure to tell me about it.
RediceRyan Jul 6, 2016 7:35 PM
Still waiting for that book!

Sorry to intrude again, but I noticed your profile says you enjoy mystery anime. It doesn't seem like you've seen Monster yet. You should definitely check it out sometime. It's an outstanding mystery series.
