Knew about anime for a long time. Just wasn't... interested. I thought it was weird. Some time during the end of 2015, I had a chance encounter with an anime called The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls. I enjoyed that show very much, even when finding out it was a rip-off of the original Idolm@ster. It holds a place in my heart just because I never knew an Idol anime of all things would make me come to love this medium. I watched Love Live a few months after watching Cinderella Girls (enjoyed that show too), and after another few months of thinking, I decided to make an account on this website. And now I'm stuck here. It's not so bad though
I rate based on personal enjoyment, for the most part. I typically like rating anime because it's fun for me. I follow MAL's definition for ratings (Good, Great, Appalling, etc), but here's a brief explanation of my scores. If you don't agree with the scores I've given to certain anime, then... that sucks.
10 - Reserved for absolute perfection. Has a special place in my heart.
5 and above is recommendable
Anything 4 or below is not worth talking about since it's easy to guess why. A "1" is reserved for stuff that offend me. I usually don't rate my completed anime these low ratings (some exceptions) because I usually drop it before that happens, but I'm trying to watch more of everything so I'll see how it goes.
Anime tagged as "*" are shows whose animation made me enjoy it more, or gave me a better experience watching it. It could also be because the weather, the time, my mood, all these factors worked well together (because I love watching anime, especially certain genres, during cloudy or rainy weather). It's complicated.
