I despise people who post opinions without having a clear passion for what they're targeting. People who view their opinion as something that will improve their own agenda rather than serve as something helpful for other people. I am talking about 1 particular person with some very questionable principles, and they have not realized that any person is capable of seeing what's beneath the surface, except their kind, as I say this I'm sure that this particular person will despise me for "generalizing". I won't name who it is, but let's just hope this person has a level of comprehension beyond and beneath the surface, if they want to determine who they are.

I am relieved to say that it is not you I'm talking about, and very much so since I liked your review for Sakurada Reset, people who dropped the show immediately unfortunately have some comprehension issues, that or either they simply cared more about certain types of shows (bias), so I can't really blame them. Reviewers on this site tend to be very different from each other, on the same idea that the color of my clothes right now could be different from yours, but we still call them clothes. There's the people who write reviews for the sake of other people that could potentially watch it/have taken interest in it , then there's the people who write reviews for the sake of their opinion.

I have come to this conclusion that this site should provide options to write your review as a "service" or "opinion". Having read someone's opinion is definitely helpful to some degree, I won't deny it. And thankfully there are people who provide actual helpful information such as yourself.

It's also important to note how helpful your score system is, others will perceive anything that has a "3" score as something of a waste, but you admit it as something that has working ideas that deserve to be called out, but only drowned out by flaws, which gives off a rather hopeful vibe, someone who has the ability to believe in others, someone who has immense passion for things that they love. And I have soft spot for these kind of people.

Hello! I liked your review of Sakurada Reset and I'm happy someone enjoyed it as much as i do :)

I saw the article too that you mentioned and it really made me annoyed because I feel like they weren't really aware of what the show is trying to portray. I feel so weird because a lot of people are saying the characters are boring and robotic but I actually think that the characters are what made me enjoy this show the most especially the three MC's. I really loved the philosophical aspect of this show. I actually learned a lot from it and I'm sad that its finished :(

I'll even be sadder when Sakura Quest finishes huhuhhuhu ;-;

Hey, I really liked your review for Sakurada, it looks inviting and flows well, easy to read and the wording is nice, so that can get people interested in it. Good job!

What I wanted to add about it though, is a bit of a warning for the future. Try not to assume reasons for people disliking something, because you will inevitably end up generalizing people from the other side of the conversation, which I assume is not something you want to do. It's especially bad when you assume that everyone who dislike the thing you're reviewing are the same ones that belong to some other group of anime fans. It's just disrespectful and wrong to assume things like that, you have no proof, you're just being an ass about it. Just keep writing, making points and arguments, and try to not take sides with any groups as much as you can.

With that in mind though, if you're thinking about writing more often, I'd recommend checking out the Anime Metacritic Club, where a lot of talented reviewers from this site have gathered to create a scoring system based on well written reviews. All that they're asking for, if you want to participate and get your review aggregated, is that you make points, and provide arguments to back them up. I'd be more than happy to see more from you in the future, and if you want to learn how to write better than you already do, you can check out reviews on there or ask people from there, they've helped me a lot and I'm sure they'd be happy to do the same for you if they'll be able to.

No worries. I share a similar philosophy in that I only write reviews when existing ones are entirely misconceived or are simply inadequate for what they ought to accomplish. Nevertheless, not too much to lament about as it seems there is some sort of sanity on the review page for Sakurada Reset.

Just droping here to say that you made an Amazing review for Sakurada Reset. I didn't know it was considered a "miss" on an announcement, but I did knew that there were a lot of people that gave up on the show that easily. its quite sad, since it has very much to offer
Kirik0h Sep 13, 11:43 AM
Although I was personally not a fan whatsoever of the stylistic choices in Sakurada Reset (although nonetheless in concurrence with your views on the show's story), I admire your attempt to balance out such terrible reviews lacking in comprehension and to a certain extent, undeserved denouncements on MAL, although given the userbase here, I don't think your review will receive the attention it deserves with respect to the other reviews on the front page.

Hello hello, just saw your review on Sakurada Reset and I just wanted to say, that when I read that article declaring it a miss, I was pissed for several days and contemplated picking a fight with the author (but I suck in those so meh) so I'm really grateful to see someone speaking up against it because this anime definitely deserves better. It's already gone in my favorites. Thank you for the review!

No need to apologize, I was just curious. As long as is not because of reason like my fav character didnt get enough of screen time or my otp didnt become canon, i can understand. I got annoyed with 'we are professionals' too, it looked like author tried make them look pro by these lines instead by plotline. Not sure what you mean by "You're not a walking-talking MovieTropes entry, let's fix you!" ?? Also to constant repeat of qualities I can relate too. It became just waste of screen time after a while, especially Utaha, with Kato I cant be objective, since I enjoy all scenes with her and arc with her being mad and disappointed i found refreshing and as development of her character.

Why did you give Saenai heroine 2 score 1? :(

Your review for Fukumenkei Noise was absolutely hilarious and accurate LOL had me dying. I still wanted to believe in the goodness of music as I was watching, but there came a point where I lost all hope. The annoying MC would open her mouth to either scream that annoying melody in a pitchy voice or shout twinkle twinkle little star in the most uncalled for situations, I wanted to replace her face mask with duct tape because it wasn't working well enough.

It's been awhile since I've seen such a horrible show it is honestly a disgrace to the shoujo and music genre. They should seriously take those tags off of MAL lol thank you for your review since it literally is probably a life saver. People should not even be bothered with that show.
