~ About Me ~
I started watching anime as a kid, way back (can I say that considering my age?) and would watch literally anything after discovering the genre. I didn’t start for real before a couple of years back, though. I’m also a complete rewatch freak, so go easy on me despite the low number of completed series, okay? I haven't even entered rewatches for the Pokémon movies because of how ridiculously high that number would be (considering I've watched several of them 10+ times each and I don't remember the exact count).
Higurashi was the first anime I watched while being conscious of it being one, and it is still my favorite series after almost 10 years with the franchise. Although I haven't read all of the manga, I am currently playing the original VNs and am at Tatarigoroshi-hen at the moment. Several of the people I know aren't really interested in anime, but I'm pretty darn sure that every person I call my friend knows of Higurashi, even if only one of them has actually watched it. I mean...I even felt the need to write a paragraph about it here. I literally didn't have a single reason to do so, yet here we are.
For all that other stuff: If you’re interested in what I do in my free time other than watch anime/do anything anime-related, I sing quite a bit. I’m not that good, though. I’ve been debating whether I should start posting covers for a while now, but I dunno. I’m probably the person I know who’s the worst at sports, or anything physical for that matter, so don’t even bother wondering about that. You can consider me a professional dog-patter. I mean…I pat my friends too but mainly my dog.
Please don’t be shy about posting a comment (But sorry in advance for taking a literal eternity to respond, I’m just terrible at communication)
I'm also open to discussions, so shoot me a message/comment whenever

I don’t think rating “objectively” is possible, but I don’t base the score on pure personal enjoyment either (does that make sense?). I usually judge from several different factors like story and characters, visuals, soundtrack, voice acting and so on. These factors usually don’t affect the score to the same degree, however. Story will usually be prioritized over visuals, for instance. The degree in which I consider each factor also depends on the series, so I guess it ends up being a pretty open system, huh? Either way, I can enjoy, or at least be entertained by, a series despite giving it a low score. In fact, I have a tendency to end up really enjoying the downright bad ones more than the average ones.
9 - 10
Probably not an actual masterpiece, but it feels like one to me personally. The series has close to zero flaws, or at least very few flaws that get in the way of my personal enjoyment. The show had a serious impact on me, and I think of it regularly as one of my favorite series. The difference between 9 and 10 is more of a gut feeling than a specific quality.
The series is good and I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t groundbreaking. It did most things right, but I felt like some element was lacking and didn’t live up to my expectations. The show may be universally regarded as predictable, but I didn’t find this to have had a negative effect on the overall quality. I found myself getting emotionally invested in the characters and probably got teary-eyed by the end.
I enjoyed it and found it consistently interesting and/or entertaining in some way. The series did most things right, but also lacked a lot. I most likely didn’t get fully invested in the characters, which ultimately kept me from scoring it 8+. If I’m rating an anime 7 and I’ve read the original manga, there is a certain probability that I thought it was an okay adaptation, but that it didn’t live up to its source material. Often, a 7 is actually an 8 that simply got good too far into the series and wasted a lot of time in the start.
If I’m rating something 6, it was either average in almost every aspect, or it was a series that could’ve been good but was particularly lacking in one element. Often, it’s originally a 5 but I like the ending enough to add a point to the total score. There also may have been a twist to the premise that I took a liking to. If it’s a wasted potential, the pacing is messed up or I just really didn’t like the characters.
It’s so completely average. I’ve most likely seen the story a hundred times before, or it feels like it because of how predictable it is. Unlike certain shows, this predictability works against it in a way that will annoy me to no end. Either that, or the story and characters were so boring that I missed half of the series because I was constantly daydreaming.
3 - 4
The series is just plain bad. A lot of the time, it started off average but the writers decided to add a twist or two to make it more interesting...ultimately ruining the story. I hated the characters from the start. If I find the story downright stupid, this is where it end up.
It’s so bad that I end up liking it. The series has so many obvious flaws that I find it entertaining to watch just for the lower-end aspects of the story. Half the time, I will recommend the show to at least one or two people saying that “it’s so bad it’s good”.
It’s so bad that I have trouble making fun of it, and have instead taken to feeling pity for how blatantly shitty it is. Most series that end up here disgust me and it may even cause me to get an actual stomach ache. I have most likely almost started hyperventilating at least once because I got too riled up when ranting about it.
Games Favorites: Now with mini-reviews! ...Not because I think anyone will care, but because no one wants to hear me talk about my favorite games and I wanna put it somewhere there’s a slight chance someone will actually read it
Bravely Second: End Layer(sequel to Bravely Default) 10/10
- Good story with characters you just can't help but love
- Amazing music
- Classic turn-based combat with some twists + class/job system (who doesn't like those?!) It's technically a sequel, but I actually recommend playing End Layer first.
Corpse Party 8.5/10
- Classic RPG visuals
- Manages to be creepy without relying on jumpscares
- Fucking magnificent story and characters
- More nice graphics
- Classic RPG with a lighthearted style ...unless you insist on acting like a fucking bitch
- This goddamn soundtrack makes my bones feel good
To The Moon & Finding Paradise (+ A Bird Story) 8.5/10
- Makes you feel all the emotions
- Even more nice graphics
- Even more good music
Satsuriku no Tenshi/ Angels of Death 7/10
- More the gameplay than the story
- ...but although the story isn't the best, it manages to keep you interested
- Technically horror, but it's more like a puzzle game
- I swear it's so much better than the anime so please go play it
Yeah...they're all RPGs
I play visual novels sometimes and I really like Fire Emblem as well, though
