Larkawolfgirl's 2017 Anime Challenge- Open to everyone:
You must watch all the anime on this list to complete the challenge. Feel free to join the challenge even if you are unsure if you can finish. It is about the fun, not winning! I chose some of my personal favorites as well as some I have not watched yet. Series are from various genres for diversity. Just tell me if you want to participate in the challenge, and I will add you to the list of participants.
I waste most of my life thinking about fictional characters. I like all genres, but my favorites tend to be action, romance, fantasy, sci fi, and yaoi.
Basically my life--as well as this page--is full of inconsistencies. I don't really have any defined standards by which I rate things (mostly it is based on the plot and my overall level of enjoyment).
About my anime ratings (since people sometimes ask)
.5 One of the worst things I've seen
1 Dang that's bad
1.5 That is pretty bad
2 Not my thing but I saw a bit of potential
2.5 I saw some potential but aspects of it were just bad (or undeveloped)
3 My sort of catch-all category for average. Anime with a good plot but bad development, unncessisary aspects, etc.
3.5 Good plot and any negatives are outweighted by the plot and/or characters
4 Really good and few negative aspects
4.5 Truly great
5 My favorites (nearly perfect)
My manga ratings are less specific, and more of the 3 ratings fall on the "this is good but only average" side instead of it having specific negatives aspects I disliked.
