Re: Anime ratings - How do you rate anime?

I go into every show assuming it's a "3", which is your average anime,...

My rental queue rotation has wrapped up a bunch of shows lately, so I've had a lot of "Volume 1" rentals lately. (The main reason I use my rental queues is to check out older titles that I never got...

Re: [request] Hover popup in search/browse results

^ Yeah, like that.

It's a common enough website design element nowadays that I come to a-p and find myself hovering over titles and just *expecting* it to be there.

Re: Unreliable narrators in anime

It's been a while since I watched it, but I think there are several instances of unreliable narrators in BoogiePop Phantom. The series switches up the POV character from episode to episode, and some...

Red Garden. The first couple episodes, I thought I'd be getting sick of the crying and whining the girls were bound to do - but they did a good job with making the girls likeable enough that I can...

It's always exciting to see someone who shares my awe of Kino's Journey and the Kino character. She's totally my hero. :D

I have a weakness for the "generic" bishie design, so my man-harem would primarily be populated with a lot of dark-haired, average-Japanese-guy types like:

Re: how much anime have you dropped?

Re: How do you rate anime?

I'm another one who uses 3-stars as my baseline. Anything that is at least mildly enjoyable, with no major irritating bits, gets a three. It goes up or down from there as a combination my personal...

Another vote for 1995. Mainly because that's when Evangelion hit. That's the game-changer, imo.

The big titles of the early 90's feel like they have a lot more in common with their late-80's...
