Everyone is free to do what they want, but I am kinda sick and tired of hearing people saying "I was planning to watch this show but after I've read your review I am not gona touch it." How can you possibly know about that anime from a damn review while not even peeking at it is really beyond my knowledge and my comprehension.
I also hate these official reviewers for their high leveled vocabulary. Its nice to see a slang here and there and some advanced stuff (it makes you realize that they are pro in what they are doing) but this community is not exclusively english. Not all the members are native english, you are not neither am I.
As for reviews, I promised alot yet in the end I couldn't keep my promises, well rest-assured i aim for politics. I wanted to do several reviews about some anime shows and about some manga but I always postponed and postponed. For months I haven't posted anything. I hope that after my exams (which begin next month) i will be able to write a few.
Hehe, you spoil me with you comments, but eh, i can't really compare myself with none of the official reviewers. However i have my own conceptions about reviewing, so in this way i think i am a little better even though i do not possess an advanced english vocabulary like most of them do.
My conception about anime is all about enjoyment, i do not watch anime just to criticize i watch anime for enjoyment. Da Capo was like a mixture of sweet and salty. I like shows that do not focuse on just a genre (i.e. drama, comedy, action, etc.) i like shows that have more aromas and Da Capo surely had this charm.
And about the official review. Whoever choses to believe a review even though he/she has not checked the show to see for themselves how it is, then those persons are the types that can't find happiness even if it stands in front of them.
A review can't be objective 100%, so it has to have a doze of subjectivity. Some of them are way too subjective, in the end its like you hear an opinion and thats it. I always read reviews after i watch the respective show and not before, because in one way it spoils the show, in the other way you watch it expecting something and there is a chance that you can end up not receiving what you really wanted, that's why those words "sometimes a mystery should remain a mystery" have a dose of truth.
The person that gave it a 2.5 probably had other tastes when it comes to anime, can't blame him but the rating was so repulsive, i had to give this one justice. Though i do not understand what he/she expected to find in this one.
Da Capo is not original, infact it doesn't have any originality at all since i can come with many other series that are like born from the same mother. However it had that thing that kept you watching it until the end, alas, the rating i gave it, be it high or low, it representes my thought about the show. I usually do not do reviews about shows i do not like...since its a mather of tastes in the end because i tend to be biased from time to time or without even knowing.
