I find it difficult to rate anime. To ease the process I generally put anime into 3 groups series, OVA, or hentai. This allow more accuracy when rating, allowing me to compare them each to appropriate titles. Music and animation have little impact on my score, in the end it all comes down to my enjoyment of the show.
General List information
Often the plan to watch list is not updated but all other status are fairly accurate. I try to never drop any anime, almost entirely due to OCD. I like to give the show a fair chance. So far I haven't dropped one yet.
Shikamaru is my favorite male character, I like to think I am similar to him in many ways. Most of the episodes featuring shikamaru were very entertaining and clever. The negative ones being I'm often lazy in a bad way. Positively I like to think Im smarter then average.
Tessa is my favorite female character because I love everything she does she is just awesome in every way. Saber is on the list just because she was decently cool and didn't hook up with shirou in the end.
For various reasons I highly enjoyed Elfen lied, Fate/stay Night, Trinity Blood, The first half of Death Note, Naruto (episodes 1-99), FMA:B.
More Anime Favorites
I usually skip watching most OPs and EDs. Out of the few I have seen my favorite OP is from Black lagoon. My favorite ED is from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
