I am a 23 year old with a degree in psychology and dance. I started watching anime (excluding pokemon and yugioh because I hardly consider those anime, more like cartoons) in late middle school early high school? on Adult Swim. My first animes were Inuyasha, Wolfs Rain, and Witch Hunter Robin. I didn't watch much beyond that until I was in college and figured out how to watch online (yes I know it's not that difficult) and since then I have been watching anime almost every day. 

Some of my favorite animes are: Mirai Nikki TV, Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin, Inuyasha, Code Geass, Attack on Titan, Arslan Senki (2015), Junjou Romantica, No. 6, Steins Gate, Another, Angel Beats, Jormungand, Black Butler, and more.

My least favorites that I have actually fully watched (or close to) are: Shakugan No Shana Season 3, Chaos;Head, Death Parade, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, D-Fragments, SOA.

Favorite Movie: Kiki's Delivery Service (No matter how old I get or my tastes change, I like this movie)

I write reviews when I have time although due to time and a bad wrist I keep a lot of them short. 

What makes an anime good in my opinion is not much different from what makes a good story period. It has to have a beginning, a middle, and an end. The beginning should draw me in. If you lose me in the beginning, what's the point of even having anymore episodes. The end should be conclusive. It should tie up that part of the story. It should provide closure. It doesn't have to reveal everything, especially if there is already a second season planned, but it should be conclusive enough that it can stand on it's own if it has too. I shouldn't have a billion questions. A conflict should have been solved and it should be the main conflict of that season. The story needs to be developed well too. The plot should have the proper structure and be well paced. The characters should also be well developed and interesting. Sterotypical characters need less development but should still be interesting. Depending on the genre, not all of these things will apply equally, however, the ending is the most important thing to me in the end (lol...okay bad joke I know). I don't care how good the rest of the anime is, if it doesn't have a good ending that concludes the story, it might as well not even exist in my mind. 

Animation style and art style matter somewhat. There are some styles that are beyond my ability to tolerate regardless of how interesting the story seems. As long as it's pretty normal though, I don't care about it much. It's the same with sound.

There are other things that apply only to certain genres, but I won't list them.

If you don't like my reviews, write your own. 

I have started reading manga a little, but it's expensive. 10 volumes costs more than 100 dollars! I can't read for free online because I can't stand reading on a screen and I lose interest in words on a screen pretty quickly. The only manga I have finished so far is A Silent Voice which I really enjoyed.

I DO NOT PLAY GAMES. I don't even own a game system. The games I play consist of solitaire and suduko on my phone. I did have a nintendo ds lite a long time ago but it's broken and I only played nintendogs on it.

Salutations,

Had the pleassure of finishing Occultic;Nine today and I am not really impressed to be honest. As I had previously prognosed the series sadly suffers from same problems and Chaos;Head did. The story dragged too long on trivial subplots and had too little time to resolve relying on some heavy deus ex machina. I also feel like a lot of information has been withheld from the viewer not familiair with the source material. Characters themselves were not really great and the 'antagonists' were really just moustache twirling villains one the Saturday morning cartoon level. (Also what was Phoenix Wright doing there playing the bad guy?) The ending felt really rushed, like literally the ending just cuts halfway to the end credits, and it feels like there was an entire episode cut just to finish this anime before 2017.

Overall a forgattable anime, which is a shame because the graphical style was pretty decent, but that is pretty much all that sticks in the mind.

Thanks for the comment, I completely understand what you're saying. I finished the anime but my reaction was mainly for the first episode. I was pretty sure (praying) Emile would turn out to be a girl because if not it would've been really weird honestly lol. These animes just get irritating to watch you know when the mc acts like that, that's just my opinion. I understand where you're coming from though, it was a good comment.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my list ^^, yea I agree I'm probably missing some other titles that would fit into the list.

I was also wondering about your opinion on what kind of characters fit. I was thinking about some sport anime with timid characters, not like Ookiku furikabutte, but others where they're fairly timid but their redemeing quality is courage/they get braver and more independent. It's character growth, but I debate whether they should still go on the list or not. By reading your comment I thought of a soccer anime Days, and another katekyo hitman reborn(and a few similar other ones). hm, I wonder if Tsuna should make in on the list or not :V he was normally pretty chicken? 

I feel like there's a thin line between a shounen character that's kinda timid, and one that's mostly timid with shounen once and a while.

Hai! I saw one fo your reviews on C: The money of soul and possibly control and i saw that you said that 11 eps animus generally are rushed and don't really have a good ending, soooo, thought that you might enjoy Un-Go .. thats it x3 have a nice day~rwr
