Hi! I am yellowbuds. Yellow because it is my favorite color and Buds because my friends call me that. I watch anime for as long as I can remember.
My first anime that I have watched was Super Pig (I think, I can't really remember).
The first anime CD that I bought was Fushigi Yuugi ( it was very expensive for me at that time)
I made an account here at animelist to make a guide for all the anime that I have watched. I made one using Excel before(LOL).
Sorry I am very lazy on making things like this but here is a brief description about my list.
At first, I watch anime to relax myself and as time goes by, it became a hobby (or addiction :)). I pretty much watch all kinds of anime except for yaoi, yuri and hentai. When I started to observe my anime list, I realized that my rating tend to be high and so I came up with an explanation for that. I try to appreciate the anime that I watch as much as I can depending on their genre or how it is made. I also read the synopsis and reviews first before watching it so I know if it will fit into my liking. Sometimes I watch the first few episodes(minutes) and when I feel that I will not like the show, I drop it (But I hate dropping a show because I am still hoping that it might get better). Here is the distribution of how I score an anime:
Story(Flow, originality, creativity, etc.) - 30%
Entertainment - 30%
Characters - 20%
Art - 10%
Sounds(Seiyuu, OP, ED and the background music) - 10%
I started reading manga 5 years ago and so I haven't read that much. The first manga that I read is Slam Dunk. I noticed that most of the manga that I read are those sooo cliched shoujo manga. Before, I hated girly stories (same in anime) but suddenly I got bored and watched a shoujo anime. I think it was Ouran High. I enjoyed it and after a few years, I started reading the continuation of Ouran. And after a few while, I noticed that I am reading too much cliched and shoujo manga (But some of them are really good, e.g. Fruits Basket). I don't know why, but suddenly I enjoyed them. My girly persenality awakened perhaps XD. But now I started reading genre like those serious ones.
My reactions in my ratings
10 - Wow.. A Masterpiece
9 - Soooo good, loved it so much. Just have a little fault and they can have 10
8 - Good. Definitely worth to watch
7- Between not bad and good. A little mediocre but still enjoyed watching it
6 - average or there are some things that I am annoyed at
5 - meh
4 and below - I just wasted my precious time *facepalm*
