I am a 22 year old psychology and dance major. 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. 

I mostly prefer serious anime. I'm not a fan of episodic anime or animes like Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece, SOA, etc. I am very picky when it comes to romance and comedy and I usually avoid it. I like historical settings whether feudal Japan or medieval Europe. 

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, and Black Butler

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.

Also please forgive the creative typos that come with speed writing. Although I do enjoy mad-up words and Command Themes, I doubt many people will immediately realize that I was merely rushed. It's usually pretty obvious what I meant to say.

Hello! Thanks for the constructive criticism! I will take it into account :D

This list has a built-in bonus of being instructional, yes, but also serves as a log for myself about what I think of each anime as I finish it. Therefore, I do occasionally employ some mad-up words, selective vocabulary, awkward hashtags, and random capotilization for Emphatic Notation of Command and Recurring Themes.

In most instances, I use "tropey" to refer to something that employs a large number of tropes, or commonalities in storytelling. While tropes are not inherently bad, they are common, and excessive use of anything too common will make your show/plot/character/setting feel...bland. For example, a tropey cast might include a cardboard collection of a tsundere, a kuudere, a Genki Girl, and That Generic Nice Guy Protag, each basically one dimensional in their presentation and development.

As for what I like and what I dislike, I've recently been trying to TLDR that at the end of each mini-review by saying things like "Do recommend" or "Watch when dead." This stands in contrast to summaries of how I personally view a work relative to the general popular opinion I see; in this instance I will use terms like "Overrated" or "Underrated" with the occasional descriptive adverb tacked on for emphasis ("severely," "tremendously," "slightly," or the boring but useful "very").

See my actual anime list for ratings I give each of these shows as well. I rate primarily based on comparitive quality within genres, with a little boost or detraction based on personal enjoyment (again, which fluctuates depending on genre; I will rate a Cute Girls Doing Cute Things show more based on personal enjoyment than uniqueness, for example).

Daily reminder that no one is allowed to have mixed opinions and balance pros and cons on the internet; we either must LOVE something or HATE it. I try to find that balance, hence why sometimes you may find it difficult to determine how much I truly enjoyed a show.

Ask any time for specific clarification or more details! I'm free in the evenings :D

It's not early at all to bash it. If a show, regardless of a medium, cannot give standard and quality entertainment, it has failed. Especially if it's coming from such a respectable studio. Nothing I said is untrue or unfair. The show will continue to give lack luster artowork, and cliche tropes on top of lazy directorial work. This isn't an opinion, it's a simple fact comparing it to the other shows out this season, as well as other shows by the exact same people.

Hello Purple-san!

I'm also a psychology major (finished my BA two weeks ago) and the story was somewhat convoluted, recondite, and farfetched during the first 5-10 episodes of season III. I didn't compreehend why Yuji enigmatically vanished and unceremoniously reappeared as the snake gof festival. I wondered what transpired from the conlcusion of SII with them obliderating the clock tower constructed by Hecate into the sinister reincarnation of his former self. Overall, the anecdote was invigoratingly fascianting because it reminded me of A Certain Magical Index & A Certain Scientific Railgun amalgamated into Shakugan no Shana with a hint of Aria The Scarlet Ammo. Personally, I'd prefer Index over the show, but it was such a beautiful compelling archetype that it astounded me. I agree with you to an extent on certain aspects mentioned in your biased review, but I tend to keep an optimistic eye open towards anime.
