There aren't many things i take care of. The aspects
which i consider to be the most important are ..
- a overall plotline which develops over the course
- how strong the story affected me afterwards
- and how well the main elements are executed ..
.. like, . . .
• when its primarily a comedy anime, how funny was it to me
• when it's a slice of life/romance anime, how well written are the characters
and their dynamic to really sympathize with them
• when it's a deep psychologiacal thriller, how stong did it affect me
and/or how much do i feel invested in this ect.
It hasn't to be deep to be a masterpiece. At least for me. But when a show tackles a specific topic,
i expect that this particular theme is treated thoroughly.
about yt links in my tags
i do add yt links to my "Tags" ... sometimes. It can be because the linked video made me love or appreciate the anime i watched a on a different level, gave me a certain feeling i subconsciously connect with that specific show or because i notice that the beat might be sampled from an OST of said animu. It can be everything and often applies to shows i watched a long time ago. Either way, these songs/amv's/videos always do improve my experience with these shows after i watched them and often made me even consider to rewatch them and change the score afterwards .. it's strange, just don't question it.
Edit: The same goes for manga - so when i connect a certain song
with a manga, or a mmv makes me wanna re-read something, i link it as well.

fav bois (slightly outdated)
fav anime movies
• What is a 10 for me
Basically when it's very enjoyable -> it's already a 9
and every 9 i give is already a potential 10 for me.
A 10 just grows on me the more i immerse myself in it's
Eventually this leads to the point where i find myself
gaining an appreciation for elements i didn't like at first.
Most of the time a "10" requires multiple watches
and expresses itself in 2 ways for me:
Which pleases my taste to the core and are perfect in execution.
I can't really say anything negative about it ( except for maybe really really minor things)
and my appreciation for these works couldn't go higher and provides me with
everything i want in a piece of media.
- Prison School (Anime)
- Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal - Zima Blue (Short film) - Breaking Bad
"the personal fav's"
... which i can relate to on a more personal level:
• always getting something new
out of it due to rewatching/re-reading it so many
... watchin' amv's and growing together with these works...
... or just spendin' time researching stuff about it,...
• analyzing the approach of the author and
learning something about them in the process
• applying ideas from these works
into my own philosophy ...
... to the point of shaping what i like and what i hope to see in future works
usually the themes* are presented in a painfully relatable way for me,
it brightens my day and fills me with joy** and hype,
or it grew*** with me and got even better bc of it (nostalgia bonus)
- Oyasumi Punpun*
- Attack on Titan (Manga) / Death Note (Anime)**
- South Park***
Hunter x Hunter is a bit of a mixed bag bc there are way too many
reasons on why i am so inlove with this piece
there might be reasons that i am probably not even aware of and not able to
fully articulate, ... but i plan on making a video eventually and capture
every aspect which makes it my favorite piece of fiction
- - - - - -
There are anime/manga who aren't in my favorite's list but
have elements i adore and expand my horizon on what
i value in a story.
like the approach in storytelling in 20th century Boys,
the thematic approach of life and art in Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu,
or the great treatment of the cast of Dorohedoro
Of course it's highly subjective what i consider "flawless" and what not.
Everything is based on my personal feelings and my ratings depend
on how much i can connect to a piece of work.
And one of the flawless ones also can have a big impact on me
and ofc i also look stuff about them. But the personal ones
are on a different level when it comes to that.
• favorite fights
• favorite arc's
• favorite character designs
• favorite protagonists
Guts || Kenshin || Eren Jäger || Yusuke || Kaiji
these 5 are my favorite protagonists
i love them all for different resasons so it's hard for me to rank them individually
but Eren might be my definite fav
there are a lot of fantastic characters which happen to be the
protagonist of there respective stories .. but my personal faves
are those who embody what the story truly means to me
--> yusuke might be an exception but he's great so whatever
• favorite antagonist's ()
i differentiate between villains and antagonists and base them
in terms of being a foil to the main character and how much i
--> having a personality outside of being a foil is a big (+) for me
