I posted my first review yesterday. After posting, I decided to check out what some other reviews look like. Oh my goodness... we've got some problems...
(1) Extremely looooong reviews
English class flashback! Filling 5 pages with one idea that could be explained in a single paragraph. A lot of reviews I stumbled across were like this. I just want to know if its good and I want to know it fast. If I'm interested in an anime, I might weather through your long-winded description of its awesomeness or lack thereof... OR I could just go find a shorter one. :P
(2) Really big words
It's like a contest for how many big words you can have in one review. Dude, I'm on this site in my FREE time. I don't want to feel like I'm reading some college paper. And this leads to another English class flashback! -> Smaller words means reaching a bigger audience. So :P
I personally don't like knowing too much about a plot, if at all. I want to be surprised! All I need to know is if its good and worth the time. Oh and the genre. ;)
(4) No pictures
LAME. I'm a picture person. Pictures make what you have to say more interesting to me and probably a lot of other people. No pictures = recipe for lameness. Which is funny because what you're reading right now doesn't have any pictures. Self-contradicting? I think not! This isn't a review of a show. It's a... review... of reviews. Haha! :P
So, did I leave anything out? Probably did. But, I want to add that my first review isn't without its own flaws. Feel free to go pick at them. I'd actually appreciate it. I need good criticism because I want my stuff to be fun, easy to read, and provide some decent info. http://www.anime-planet.com/users/puriful/blog/posts/9163
Thanks for reading!
