My rating system:
1: absolute trash (Idk if I'd ever watch a show to completion that was this bad)
2: really pissed me off due to terrible second half or moments that fucked the entire plot
3: some things in the show pissed me off enough to have a negative opinion of it
4: was bored at times watching it, otherwise nothing really bad, but nothing really good either
5: a nice watch but nothing that really stood out
6: things started to stand out, has some memorability, liked the show
7: personally really liked the show and remember them favorably
8: talk about these a lot, will recommend them, personally they wow'd me, made me emotional
9: fucking fantastic show, top of the top, incredible shows that I loved, made me super emotional
10: my absolute favorites

ENTIRELY COMPARATIVE. Most of the stuff I have at 4 I'd give at least a 7 if MAL actually would let us give decimal scores!

Glad to hear you liked it. I've been meaning to go back and rewatch it, might be a good time to do it now

It's certainly very polarizing but I loved it. I've had several friends say it was boring or the plot didn't make sense, and I can see how people would feel that way, but I still go back and periodically watch Izumiko's dance from episode 3 because I find it so moving, and that's more than enough to overcome whatever flaws it has for me.

Always happy to meet a fellow Granbelm fan as well.

Hi,thanks for accepting the FR.
Ya,Sola is awesome but sadly it's not popular.I was addicted to that anime for some time.It has good animation,story and a good soundtrack.

Thanks for being respectful, i really can't see qualities in 86, maybe you watched a different version...A good version...

It's great to see someone else with Kenichiro Suehiro as favorite, his work is amazing.

Love your review of Granbelm, it's one of the few real mecha to come out in the last few years. Basically everything else nowadays is just resorting to corner cutting 3DPDCG.

Where have you read the Umineko light novel?

Well, I mean, very rarely we get "show, don't tell" shows that really pushed the narrative so well. It's a tried-and-true method that always works.

Glad you found your AOTY!

Finish it man, we're waiting for you to finish 2020!

Again, I am reviewing this season. This has always been my stance. If you have read my reviews like you said, you would obviously know this.

I'm really not knocking it for the beginning. It had nothing that interested me for the first 8 episodes, then their friendship started blossoming into something interest. The mysteries still revolved around one-dimensional side characters, like Yuuko and her boyfriend. I couldn't care less about them.

I liked Michiru and Nana's relationship. As I said in my review when Nana's heart becomes warmer it makes for the best moments in the show. That's why I gave it a four, which relatively is a fair score. I swear, if the entire show was about their relationship and Nana's resistance to the government that enlisted her to kill innocent children, it would be a 7-8.

Wrote my review the day it ended. I watched the final episode as it aired. It did not change my opinion.

Like I said, I review based on this season. You may be willing to give him the special privilege, but I try to be fair in my reviews. If I started giving leeway to every anime I had a biased towards, my reviews would be disengenous. I never want to become that kind of reviewer.
It’s time to ditch the text file.
