Less toxic but also very inactive. Guess you can not have both without Zuckerbergian (=expensive) active moderation, and I speak out of 25 years of experience with social media here.

P.S. Just did the math, my friends list has 13 of 22 having watched it with an average rating of 8.84 - and they use my scale. Which means it is somewhere between "strong recommendation" and "masterpiece".

I haven't even seen all anime genres yet, uncovered or hopelessly undercovered genres: sports, military, space, superpower, meccha. I definitely like slice of life, but can handle only so-and-so much cute girls doing cute things emotions per month before I need something with more brain appeal again. Monster is a crime/horror story with deep characters and good plot twists from what I hear, which leaves you thinking long after it is finished.

The truth is in a good mix, some brainy stuff, some moe, some wtf-stuff. I'm just not into action, superpower and shounen, that I know already from my experiments. Even the outstanding test subjects i watched (Mob Psycho, One Punch Man and Fate/Zero) were no bangers for my taste. I've no doubt they have excellent production values and are masterpieces of their genres. Just not my genres :D

Modern as in story telling, not necessarily in time period. Shounen is named after the magazine which leads the JP market for that type of story, Shūkan Shōnen Jump. They published the manga, see https://myanimelist.net/manga/96792/Kimetsu_no_Yaiba

And yep, FMAB is on my endless list too. I decided to do the about equally sized "Monster" first because of the ratings I see in stats/Recent Activities/Friends. I have a small but hand picked list consisting exclusively of people with 70%+ affinity, rating within +/- 1 of my own distribution on average, and similar fanboyism (e.g. Monogatari). That is my "advisory council", so to say. I'm also in "MAL: The later years", which is the club of age 30+ MAL users. It's a different world of sorts, lol. But that is what I am.

I think I skip Demon Slayer after this weeks experience with Fate/Zero. Ufotable certainly is top-3 w/r to animation, but I seriously had a problem with the story and wasn't really entertained. From what I read about DS it is a modern shounen, which is not my genre. Brilliant animation doesn't help here.

My next stop probably should be one of the heavyweights again, https://myanimelist.net/anime/19/Monster as a large one (50+ episode wall of bricks), and https://myanimelist.net/anime/1210/NHK_ni_Youkoso/ as a mid sized one. That should keep me busy and earned 9s and 10s from people I know have compatible taste. In between I have some feel-good-moe, just started https://myanimelist.net/anime/35839/Sora_yori_mo_Tooi_Basho

And then there is that ton of seasonal isekai upcoming, and being the fantasy trash I am, we probably meet again in forums of one of those too.

Of the recent shows, Slime is what I see recommended most often, yup. One of the reasons why I did that Re:Zero poll was to learn about the genre I love in it's non-japanese form of high/epic fantasy. My elitist buddies recommended an older show to me to be relevant, but few have watched it. The two (of 22) who have gave it a 10 and a 6, which means something as 100% of my friends list are people with my stricter rating approach.

Ooopsy, makes me a bit frightened then that I felt adressed and urged to justify myself, lol.

Off-forum because I do not want to derail the topic-oriented debate. You still deserve an answer.

Honestly im curious do your scores reflect your enjoyment in anime? Or are you like one of those people that have a profile for objective scoring and a profile for subjective scoring, I mean absolutely no offense with the score thing, just curious.
Yes, I thoroughly enjoy anime, there are no two profiles. Quality, enjoyment and taste are corelated, but I aim to be fair to genres I'm not a fan of too. Genres I like (e.g. fantasy) get a bonus, as with anybody else. Making movies and writing stories is both art and craftmanship, ratings a mix of both. E.g. Fate/Zero S1 is a mess of a story with brilliant production values - 6/10 (Story 4, Animation 10, Sound 8, Chars 5, Enjoyment: 5; Overall: 32/5=6.4=6). My approach uses the full range (1-10) and Gaussian distribution (aka Bell Curve) over it.

A 9/10 isn't an A, it means you are offered to skip a year because you are too good for your class. A 10/10 means Harvard offers a grant just to have you. Your 10 is my 7.5, and that is easily reflected by our rating averages. A 1/10 gives you eye cancer/brain bleach/zzzZZZzzz.

Most things man makes are mediocre, so easily one third are 5/10s, that's room temperature. If I enjoy watching them more than expected the rating is 6-8/10, if less so then it is 2-4/10. A 4/10 is not bad, if I like the genre, I would watch it. I don't trust anybody with a dramatically different distribution to be completely honest (to himself too!).

Shield hero's 6/10 means I've enjoyed it more than the average show , but don't consider it to change the world. I've reviewed SH, the link is on my profile, check it out if you like to know how I get to that rating in detail (Story 7, Animation 3, Sound 8, Chars 5, Enjoyment 7; Overall 32/6=6.2=6). It's not rocket science, it's a 6 like Fate/Zero because the production values suck but the story is better, and as a fan of fantasy and not so much of action sequences, enjoyment is also higher. Your mileage certainly will differ, and your opinion is as good as mine.

I'm new to anime, but not to visual entertainment or books. I'm not a fanboy, I'm a fangeezer, way above the age average of MAL. Assume you discuss anime taste with your dad's older brother, because that's my age group. Taste doesn't stay the same troughout your life, I'd be utterly suprised not to differ. I just love the movies for decades and have seen hundreds if not thousands. "The Matrix", "Inception", and "Black Swan" are based on anime originals, that is what brought me to anime and MAL first hand: curiosity about the source. Based on that I do claim some understanding of visual media and story telling indeed, and coming over as snobby is my known bane. If I could fix that easily I would, but I promise to try harder.

And yup, I'm a man of strong opinions and am not shy to express them. That's me, always has been. I don't trust anybody who has disabled comments on his profile like SSL443 - probably a result of a history of trolling and flames. Just like myself, only less experienced and with less self-control *grin*. If he bothered to write a review, I'd happily read it. But just entering forums with flames doesn't impress me much.

I've already seen it :p
Melody2222 Jun 9, 11:02 AM
But why don't we hear their inner dialogue more often in anime? That could work right? Maybe there are too much and the studios think it would be boring for the viewers? :(
obvious_troll Jun 8, 11:25 AM
Hell Yeah
obvious_troll Jun 8, 10:52 AM
Thank you
Melody2222 Jun 6, 2:01 PM
Really? I had no idea! Welp, I'm going to remember about the Naofumi of the anime then and not think about what I've just read... x)

Do you think it happens a lot? I mean that a character is really different in the anime compared to the source material? I know a lot of people where disappointed about how Emiya Shirou was portrayed in Fate/stay night! His famous quote probably didn't helped... you know the one. :p
Bobby2Hands Jun 2, 5:26 PM
Thanks for accepting the friend request.
And no, I don't just care about animation. The voice acting and story were actually both great in the latest AoT episode.
Bobby2Hands Jun 2, 5:21 PM
Yeah I don't care so much about the story or any weird...basement stuff.
I'm just glad they have got back to having high quality action packed animation.
