Hello! and welcome to my profile!
I am Raux, for about a year before joining, I had stumbled across this website while trying to find some recommendations of good Anime to see. I found this site to be the most informative I could find, and shortly after joining i began to write my own reviews. Although i do not pop them out like rabbits, every review that i write is given hours of consideration and many rough drafts. I am not fast at these. I don't quite enjoy writing reviews about Anime's that i do not like. Yet even though i don't like it, I realize it's benefit, it shows you what you like and what you do not like. I give this website credit for giving me a way to increase my writing skills, and for developing my judgement in art. The friends I have made here I hope to have for a long while.
I love stories, Anime has some great ones. I was prejudice against Anime for a while because, like the cursed twilight saga, it obtains some wierd followers that make your skin itch just being around them. As I've grown, I've realized, there are people who I make itchy, and it's a poor reason to judge. There is beauty, as well as deformation in this artform. But in the end it comes down to this. I loves me a good story!
Here is my rating system, for those of you that are interested. first and foremost. My review rating system and my star rating system are totally different.
With my reviews, I am logically analysing everything I see, the progression of story, the feel of the score, the appeal of the animation. Although I will express my personal feelings of it, I try not to let personal preference completely hinder my judgement.
10 - Hasn't happened, just like perfection, it is a goal that i always shoot for, but will fall short of. It's a method of motivation
9.5 - Best of Best I've ever seen. if someone argues with me about a 9.5 in person, I will very likely start raising voice as if defending a family member. These are stories I feel have changed me and affected me for the better, down to my core.
9 - Amazing, if it were a person, I'd have it raise my own child in my stead if I were dead.
8 - a great watch, a few problems, but overall it affected me very emotionally and was a very well-built artistic machine
7 - Give it a watch, it'll be awesome
6 - You bored? this will entertain you
5 - Good stuff, but only needed in small doses
4 - not really good
3- pretty bad
2 - Terrible
1 - .......why did anybody spend money on this? people really thought this was good enough to make?
0 - Just ignore it, like that annoying guy in class who seriously ate paper during class to see if anyone would talk to him about it.
As for my star rating, the method is quite simple.
5 stars - I freaked out hard core while watching it
4 stars - I freaked out a lot
3 stars - pretty good, definitely needed to eat something while I was watching it.
2 stars - not going to lie, I could have fallen asleep while watching this
1 stars - haha, I definetely fell asleep, my dreams were more entertaining
0 stars - hated it. hate hate hate
Favorite Anime - ok, I have something called my pedestal, only three are allowed on the top at one time. and they all share first place.
Note: the positions are going to change as more Animes are viewed, and as my preferences and tastes develop.
