about me

Ratings Scale:
10-
This score will never be given to anything because nothing is perfect.
9-Masterful. Very few issues and maximum enjoyment.
8-Great. This is an anime that contains flaws but still manages to be entertaining.
7-Above Average. This is the score I tend to give most series. It has many flaws but is enjoyable in some way.
6-Average. It just...exists. Anime around here don't really exhibit any stand out qualities.
5-Meh. Meh is worse than average because it's an average where I don't care. Something completely stagnant.
4-Poor. This is an anime with very little to offer.
3-Bad.  Anime in the 3 range exhibit no redeeming qualities, though are sometimes so bad they're laughably good (School Days).
2-Terrible. An anime so bad it should be avoided at all costs.
1-Spawn of Satan. An anime that's as putrid and reprehensible as they come.

Well, as I told you, I can't really say I enjoy one more than another, there are some serious anime that bored me to death and there are some comedy anime that also bored me to death, I enjoy both equally. I preffer more philosophical types of anime for the whole thinking thing, like Serial Experiments Lain or the very Ghost in the Shell, they always manage to bring up things that make me question my whole morality and values most of the time.

I'm able to watch shows about mindless comedy because what's important tp me in any story, be it book, anime, movie, game or whatever, is the cast. Not the plot, not the direction, not the music, not the graphics or anything else, the most absolute thing that I require from any story is to have characters that I can feel like I'm their friends ( or co-worker in anime like GitS ), characters that I can feel that I'm interacting with them throughout the story, it's one of the reasons why I loved YuruYuri so much, seeing all the girls messing with each other was fun as hell and I felt that I was their friend even without being part of the story, I could feel empathy for them, this is all that matters to me. Look at Guilty Crown though, Shoe was so bad of a protagonist ( even if he man'd the fuck up later ) that I hated the whole story just because of him, I couldn't feel anything for him except hate. Now, for another example is the classic Ikari Shinji, I wasn't able to hate Shinji because he had a reason to be like that, we all know Shinji's life was a fucking trainwreck and he had all reasons of the world to be a little whinny emo. And even then, he still tried his best to not be like that whenever possible, I can say that I even admire Shinji's willpower to struggle against all the things that happened to him.

You gotta understand that anime is not about all that stuff. As I told you, anime is entertainment, if anime is not entertaining you at all then you might aswell leave the hobby and go for books. I'm quite happy that we don't get things like those series often, I don't watch anime to feel intellectual, I watch anime to have fun, because that's what it's supposed to do, if it happens to be a serious series then there's that but I don't expect everything to be like it, I would be a entitled faggot if I complained about the industry while being a dirty pirate. It's as they say, beggars can't be choosers. Oh, I buy figmas and BDs from time to time though, I normally get my absolute favorite every season since...you know, those goddamn prices.

I don't really mind highschool setting, it gave us awesome shows like Yuru Yuri ( fucking season 2 in one week or two, hell yeah ), Azumanga, Pani Poni Dash and a few others. Well, if you don't like it then that's fine, everyone has their own tastes.

So, TL;DR: nothing changed, everything is still the same. If you still don't believe me, check this

Indeed...I saluted the screen at the final scenes...with manly tears in my eyes.
