TWGOK ,Super Robot Anime Fan and aspiring reviewer.
I review anime based on rather,objective factors of storytelling.
Normal stories stick to their novel premise,Very episodic storytelling methods or linear story-lines.Basically "I can see the ending" .They stick to established "genre" tags.
Exceptional stories have strong overarching elements that make you have to watch till the end to see it unfold to have it happen or understand it.
I'm not really interested in realism on its own.Why would I want anime to be too equal to real life?. It defeats the purpose of the medium.I'm interested in logical consistency; things must happen for a good reason.The route must be treated with as much importance as the event.
Normal stories tend to be more informative and show "a lesson learnt" .Or dramatic for emotional fulfillment.
Exceptional stories tend to makes characters grow and change over the course of the story,With believable progression and development based on experiences, not just dialogue.
Proactive characters for the most part, are better than reactive characters.
Emotions forced or genuine?
Do you present a story with black and white morals?Or do you present grey ideas that people may question due to" outer status, power, image" absurdity but can stand cause its emotions and ideas are true to reality?
