Wanna see how an anime got rated on myanimelist while airing?
I have a project called Anime Stats.
It collects all statistics of an airing anime and displays the progression from episode to episode in little charts. Since Spring 2016 statistics from AniList and Kitsu are collected as well!
Take an example look:
I see anime as a form of entertainment like any other medium and therefore watch it as such and don't care about stereotypes and find Otaku-slang ridiculous.
Actually I am quite passionate about all kinds of media, be it visual or acoustic.
Things you may or may not learn from anime:
If you meet a rabbit with a flower in its hand a) run for your life or b) try to kill it with all you've got
- if b) doesn't work which is very likely go back to a). (Kobato.)
Japanese students in the age of 11-18 are the better adults. They know how a society works, can dance/cook/sing like professionals without any prior training. (Basically any School anime)
A profound friendship makes you voluntarily go through hell to help your friend. Even though when the right thing seems to be a lost cause there's always hope for success in one way or another. (Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, Akemi Homura)
Children in the age of 11 are suited to deliver letters all over the country, fighting weirdly huge and surreal techno-bugs without any training whatsoever (Tegami Bachi)
