I think that Durarara! is just a weaker version of Baccano!, not to even mention that it's from the same guy. It's a lot slower and not as though out. Charachters are interesting, but most of them lack development, and main 3 charachters in focus are not all that great. It's quite good, though.

Ups, and I almost forgot; thans for the review. :3

And about Space Brothers. It seemed to huge for me to watch, and some people I know put me off saying that it's all about backstories or something like that. I like slice of life... but when there's some sort of plot here. I dislike pointless sol like K-On!, where there's literally nothign going on. I like sol like Tatami Galaxy or Welcome to N.H.K where a lot of crazy stuff hapens but with a point and purpose and still manages to deliver way more than just usual sol shenanigans. I also really liked the most recent Usagi Drop.

Regarding Madoka; I don’t think it’s really necessary to be experienced in MM genre, since Madoka became famous for avoiding all the usual tropes. It tried to deconstruct the genre and do something completely else with the stroyline – something Evangelion did to mecha – but it failed, imo (since it was already done a while ago…). So, it’s completely fine to give critic.

About AOT; I’m quite different with that. I can’t even make myself care for an unimportant character since my emotional investment into his character is 0. I need to meet the character properly, see him do stuff, hear his story and give in to his appeal. He needs to make me care for his hardships and make me care for his actions and well-being. My definition of good fight would be the one where I’m standing behind a character anxious and excited… not when I’m expecting 10 deaths minimal. There should be some sort of suspense. With AOT, it became pretty clear that there’s plot armor on many characters and that they won’t die, but for the sake of edgy atmosphere, they will indeed kill as many scrubs as possible. After a while, I just got used to it and embraced it as an entertaining factor, not an actual drama. Millions of them could die and I probably wouldn’t even flinch because that’s not a real war drama, it’s just statistic I couldn’t care less about. If Jean died, per se, I think I’d probably cry… and that is pretty much the contrast I’m trying to give you.

And I’m with you that Mikasa is just nonsense of a character. Her background makes no sense and her actions even less – almost a complete Mary Sue. She clings to Eren like a sticker even though we only saw him doing 1 thing for her… and that was it. The show expects us to swallow that and fap to her as overly attached waifu… sigh sigh. I was so glad when Jean told her that he’s sick of her clingy shit. Made me smile.

Man, love me Sailor Moon – swallowed it all when I was a kid. I’m really looking forward to that remake the next season.

Np. Just tell me what you like/want to see and what genre you feel like watching, and I’ll give you a short briefing about pros and cons without spoilers and why I think you might like it.

Cheers!

Oh, if you're ever disagreeing with my review, you are free to ask me about it. I'd be more than willing to explain something I didn't incude or go in depth with somehting you didn't agree with. (tbh I'm really curious now) Depends, it might even be that you're right. ^.-

Thanks for teh kind words. Cheers!

Thanks for the review. I'm glad someone reads my stuff. :3

And yeah... it had a lot of potential. But I hated the way they handled the world building... they never explain anything clearly, so you can pretty much come up with any MMO mechanic and excuse it and no one could prove you wrong. I hated that. I believe that world should be self-explainatory, and not be explained by mechanic in x y game. I mean, come on... 

ALO... ow gad alo... no. 

Also, I'm taking your comment section virginity. muahahah.
