I'm more of a glasses man myself.

Before you read any of the below, I'd like to remind you that we all have differing opinions, perceive different anime with varying mindsets, and therefore may disagree as to how to evaluate certain anime. This applies to manga and light novels as well. Also, ponies.

If you're reading this, you either A) clicked it by accident and will close the tab now or B) are interested in my anime preferences.

Personally, I'm a Civil Engineer in New York. I spend most of my time these days playing video games and bugging my friends by saying "no I haven't watched the latest episode of [fill in the anime here]" while playing said games.

I'll watch pretty much any anime as long as I find it interesting. My favorite genres are varied, but I tend to enjoy high drama (a.k.a. melodrama or forced drama) more than anything else. There are some genres from which I tend to stay away, in particular the so-called "ecchi" genre. When attempting to judge an anime "objectively" (I will contend that this is impossible) there is one standard that I hold above all others, and it isn't a category you will find in site reviews. An anime's ability to affect the emotions of the viewer directly impacts the overall quality. If there is no emotional response, then the flashing images, sound, story, and even the characters mean nothing.

Generally my reviews follow the same criteria, just converted to a 10 point scale.

The funny thing is I leech word definitions I've been searching for from other people accidentally... so thanks for "satricial" :D

But yeah, I though they were really well done regardless of the fact that the rest of the show sucked. Sure, the framerate isn't super great, but aside from that the animation is perfect. As for the sound, it's really suiting and well done, so why not give it a high score?

Granted, this being Gainax, they could compound the trolling by actually making that second season, thus trolling everyone that had caught wise.

Either way, it's hilarious.

Then you forgot to add the points, I'd give sound a 8/10, if not a 9. The voices are amazing. The  ending is great too. And Anarchy is just excellent. Not sure why you took 3 points out of the total (10).

 

But obviously, each to their own opinion. PaS was pretty much crap, but I really did like the sound aspect of the show xD

When you find a series like YnS in the future it would be wise to do research on it first. To a lot of people this show WAS worth watching, however it might not seem that way to you because you didn't know what to expect when you dove into it and you may not enjoy this type of series. As far as the writing goes it's not THAT bad when it comes to AVN adaptions. And the "awkwardness" you felt was more drama to other people. I will say this though: When it comes to your review writing skills, they're damn good. Even though I like YnS I found your review interesting(although a bit harsh) but I try not to base a review on my own preferences. Overall it was a well structured piece and I wouldn't want you to stop writing them even if it meant you giving another of my liked series a good bashing. Good luck in future reviews!
