MAL is a good place to keep track of anime you watch and converse with fellow fans. Right now MAL proves to be really useful actually. I haven't watched anime seriously for about a year (Uni kind of got in the way at first and then I lost the drive). Life just isn't the same. But as it seems, anime never leaves my life, so now I'm back again. 2016 autumn I re-watched Wolf's rain and left, now Noragami. And soon TG for like the fourth time I guess? I just love it
Either way MAL shows me pretty well where I was left off.
We'll see if I'm in it for new ones too. For the last year it's been basically only re-watches, and a few at that. And I should start reading manga again, I just loved manga so much..
So I guess I'm kind of back for now.
(sorted out my huge library of pictures, that's what brought me back to Noragami)
I might not be very strict about rating anime, but I just give the rating which feels right for me. I find something great in any anime I watch, therefor I can't rate it very low. As time passes I might lower some ratings, but mostly I think they'll stay the same.
You see.. I'm an 'emotional' rater. I rate anime based off my emotions during and after watching it. I don't over analyse them. But I do take plot into consideration, since some anime don't seem to have much of a plot...
And I really love to have conversations, especially about anime! I'm always trying to be open minded and consider other peoples views. I never push my opinions down on people and expect others to do the same. Mutual respect and consideration are good to have when discussing something.
My all time favorite anime is Wolf's Rain and that's probably never gonna change. I love each anime I've seen in a different way and will remember all of them, but Wolf's Rain is the most special one to me. There's something about it...
