Welcome to my profile! All friend requests are accepted but you'll have to chat with me first. So feel free to leave a comment and I'll respond whenever I can! Idc about your mean scores and I couldn't care less about rating affinities either.
While my ratings are based on enjoyment, I value the quality of the work as well. Enjoyment does not always necessitate to a good show. People's rating standards is not always merely based on entertainment either. You can enjoy terrible shows too and perhaps continue watching since you pinpoint a reason to care about how a show ends. It is solely that the enjoyment does not always result in a positive value. There is ironic enjoyment as well. In some cases, while some shows may not be boring, they rather feel utterly pointless or lacking in purpose. Enjoyment and the quality of the work are not synonymous.
10/10:In simple words, a powerful cathartic experience. These works are the most powerful-heartfelt works that I have never come across before. This includes great series that I resonate with on a deep-personal level. They remind me of the sole reason I love this medium in the first place. Objectively, there is no such thing as a 'perfect' anime/manga but these are entries I will ride with despite the flaws it may have. If there is a series that is 10/10 despite no resonating effect, it means I don't feel comfortable to rate it lower.
9/10:Peak. The main difference is I might not resonate with these series. This medium at its prime with content that peaks above all. They can contend with critically acclaimed pieces from other mediums. Works that innovate this medium. Heavily explored themes, stories, and characters. It perfectly conveys and presents the abilities of what it is trying to offer conceptually. I would consider these to be my favorites as well.
8/10: Series that I love with a passion. These are still the best works the anime/manga medium can offer on a entertaining or conceptual level. They may not always leave a strong personal connection but it still leaves a big impact.
7/10:Works that I adore wholeheartedly. The difference is that it might not contend with entries that I love with enormous passion. These are works I can easily recommend despite the flaws. While they are not compelling series, they were still charming and makes me crave for more.
6/10:Series that I like or respect a lot despite the flaws. Decent/above average. Better than your average anime/manga. These titles have positives that outweigh their negatives. They had promise but may be lackluster due to poor execution or flaws that prevents it from grasping their full potential. I can still recommend these series.
5/10: Definitely not bad but mediocre. Not a lot stands out to me. While the show may have a lot of positives, it has just as many negatives. It may have unique qualities but the series does not utilize anything to make use of it. This is where it can be forgettable for me unless if it's a popular series.
4/10: Below average. Doesn't mean it's terrible - but rather there were a couple more flaws than positives, but not by a staggering amount.
3/10: This is where I can safely say the work is dreadful. Very poorly written and presented. They offer minuscule value. Easily digestible titles with nothing to take from them.
2/10: Dogshit. It can't get any worse than this...right?
1/10:Sigh. It does get worse and I question my life decisions as I'm watching this fuckfest. Series that I hate with a passion.
These would be authentic ("realistic") characters that are unique and three-dimensional. With real-life attributes, extraordinary appearances, endearing personalities, and meaningful backstories. Motives that inform their actions and decisions which helps construct a narrative in the story. Not all of these characters are gonna be complex. To put it simply, it also includes characters that I adore, resonate with, or aspire to be.
Yes, but only in a positive way. There are only two types of people that could possibly be influenced by fiction to do bad things. People that are mentally unstable, and people that can't differentiate fiction from reality.It is literally that simple. Anyone with common sense and a healthy mind know this. We're going back to the "video games cause violence" controversy. If I have fun shooting people in FPS games, does that make me want to shoot people irl? No. Do you see how absurd it sounds? There are no creditable sources that back up the claim. There's also sane people who complain anyway because there would be fictional works that doesn't align with their political views or it hurts their personal sensibilities. But that sounds like a personal problem from there, not the work itself. Sorry to say.

Shaping up to be another one of my favorite series :) I'm expecting quite a lot from Origination, and even if my high expectations don't get fully fulfilled, I'm sure it'll still be a really pleasing experience. The Natural episode 26 was so good, man.
As it is now, probably yes tbh. It's not just fading novelty but also increases in quantity without actually making an adequate profit. Adapting ongoing popular IPs is the safest bet to dominate the market, but this ironically leads to big studios snatching all the rights > having too many shows on their belt > production issues > not so positive receptions.
big moment may have been the wrong word, I just meant stuff that are good by themselves, but also build on everything that comes after them.
like having every pay off be the build up to another pay off.
when I said big moment, I just meant anything important. and stuff like character growth counts for sure.
You nailed it with the breakdown. Check out my own thoughts on AniList while you’re at it. Of course there will be subjectivity with how many will view the redemption process positively or negatively.
actually a perfect character that defines a character being good because of the story is a character in your favorites. homura.
akemi doesn't really have that interesting of a personality. both her original, and her changed self are quite dull. and in an uneventful show, it would have been very boring to watch.
but she has such a strong character arc, that it doesn't matter. her story, what she goes through, and the choices she makes, makes you care about her.
on the other topic, I actually haven't seen any of the shows you used as examples yet. I know they're great, but there is much good media out there I constantly feel like I'm playing catch up. lol
If I was to use shows as examples that perfectly build up their events without being slow, it would be the vinland saga, arcane, and the promised neverland season 1.
the key is to use build up new pay offs, withing the previous pay offs. so the factors that help create the first big moment, use that as build up for their own big moment. which is why more than anything else it takes planning.
these aside though, how do you quote on profile comments?
I've seen a few people do it. I thought I would figure out at some point, but never did lol
so when I try to criticize something on "not having enough build up" there needs to be a massive room for it. since anything can improve by "an" amount with more build up.
and I at least can't think of anything that character could have done before the drama that would have added enough to the impact to be worth it. specially because she didn't actually die.
I also think the fact that it's dealing with a relatable topic, would make most people resonate with her for that alone. specially since this topic is rarely if ever actually depicted well. while he was using it to criticize the show, I think literaturenerd actually used the perfect episode to compare this to. which was that one odd taxi episode about gocha games and gambling.
we feel for the character because of the story around her.
it's actually a double edge sword if you think about.
if the story the character is going through is interesting, you care about the character faster.
if you care about the character more, you get more invested in her story.
Too bad no new episode next week. Apparently it was planned beforehand to fill in the empty timeslots unlike with Mashle, Hell's Paradise, and Kamikatsu xD. Cause only 11 episodes total.
