Thanks :)

Even his shitposts suck!

Compare these two reviews. One is very clearly a funny shitpost while the other is so lost I have no idea what it is at all:
SunlitSonata Sep 27, 2018 11:45 AM
Thanks a lot mate! You’re the second person to thank me. He really had it coming.

That review was just a quick review while the whole thing was getting tons of undeserved hate because of a certain big youtube channel. And it only goes up to episode 6 too. The blurays fixed almost all of the animation issues thus far too, as expected. And now that we got to an acceptable point to judge the whole thing concretely, I would change some stuff, for better and for worse ever since that review. The rate will probably be still be around 7,5-8/10 at the moment, but I do have lots to cover with it.

Ignore incomplete 4-6 episodes reviews in this site, they by no means reflects the thing as a whole, the positive ones just serves to either not disencourage people to watch something that either is good or has lots of potential to improve further just because someone with more public told them to by episode 2-3, while the negative ones to do the opposite (most of the times).

I think I said something along those lines in tha review itself too. Thing is pretty bias and not quite well formulated. in the episode discussion I entered in more details of everything that was in or that was missing, lacking or even expanded compared to the source material... that is, until MALpocalypse.

Your welcome:)

Ah I actually found you through a friends profile.

Hey! Thanks so much for accepting! I hope we can become good friends!

So I'm supposed to find evidence that your anecdotal points are more than opinion, but you don't have to support those claim with anything but declaring them "facts". Literally the only thing you've supported your arguments with was that "nobody complained".

See, this is why I said we have nothing to discuss!
Or to use your rhetoric style:

You don't understand what a "fact" is. That's a fact. Also, nobody else has said anything negative about this statement of mine, so you cannot reasonably do so either.

How is anything i said about the anime false? I mean if you know jackshit about swordplay or samurai mentality, then that's your problem.
GenesisAria May 6, 2018 6:42 AM
I write unified field, don't talk to me about misunderstanding facts and truth lol.

It's not egotistical at all... you are the only one who seems to take it that way as most people appreciate the fact that i drew their attention to things they didn't notice. All i said was "hey! look at this, you missed something, there's more here."

You keep saying "your ideas" and "your opinions", but you'd have to back that up with something. Because me saying that this is accurate to real swordsmanship for example, is a fact. What you do with that fact, is up to you. If you think it's cool that there's so much samurai passion put into the series, then sweet, if not, suit yourself. It's simple lol. You're not obligating to like my review, i just did it because i wanted to, and wanted to pitch in a little to support the series. Judging by most of my feedback, i'd say i did my part, and i'm happy for it.

That initial statement is a hook my dude, it's to grab peoples' attention, because the series was getting seriously underappreciated because it's being associated with a bunch of generic trash, when it is far from. The truth remains, it's not what people think.

People can have whatever views they want, all i've done with my review is given something for people to look at and think about that shows why this series is not some pushover, and that it's designed with love and care and a lot of knowledge put into it.

A review is a brief response and analysis to subject matter for the potential use of giving people some insight as to whether to try or not try it. How people respond to it is completely up to them. In this case it was nothing to do with preferences and shit, people weren't rating shit show because they genuinely though it was bat, they weer rating it low because at first glance it seemed like it was a generic battle girl anime, they barely paid attention and dropped it. My words have gotten a number of people to retry it, and that's a wonderful thing. I love anime, and seeing more people possibly finding a new show they like makes me a happy camper. If they still don't like it after recognising what actually has gone into the show and what it's merits are, then that's cool... it means they still have it a shot.

You're literally the only person to complain to me about the review, it seemed to me people have been appreciating it as well. You're also coming out of nowhere telling me to reevaluate myself etc, based on your own personal opinions and views which you are pushing on me... The irony is, i've been in, out, all around myself, subject matter of all kinds, and explaining concepts to people. I feel you're kinda barking up the wrong tree...

Nothing personal, no offence taken, i'm not bothered at all, and don't intend to bother you about it. Sorry if it came across as pretentious or whatever, i just immediately saw an impressive amount of swordsmanship knowledge and samurai psychology within the series, and wanted other people to see that the series is backed by a lot of detailed understanding, demonstrating it to not be another throw away series, but a properly conceived project that takes itself seriously. That is not opinion, that is just fact. Whether people appreciate those facts or not is up to them.

I'll get right to the point:
Stop trying to convince yourself that your own personal enjoyment of something means that it's objectively flawless!
Seriously, why do you feel the need to validate your taste with a faux critique?
Can't you just enjoy it alongside other like-minded individuals without devaluing others' views?
There's nothing to convince, i'm not a subjectivist. I appreciate things a lot, both on an emotional personal level, and an objective level... i don't try to kid myself that everything is opinion and that nothing else matters, because that's extremely egocrentric. I don't feel the need to validate anything, because there's no validation, all i do ix express observations and study, on a technical level and philosophical level when such things seem worth talking about. If you don't appreciate that, then it's fine, but coming in here and shit-talking me is not constructive.

I don't devalue anyone's views, i just don't appreciate people thinking their opinions are paramount, because they aren't, and mine aren't either, opinions are transient. They mean nothing to anyone but yourself. Things which CAN be discussed are things which persist regardless of opinion. There aren't many people like-minded to myself lol.

Thanks for the compliment! I was really looking forward to that one too.
