Welcome, my fellow Anime Planetarian'! I am an avid reader of many different storytelling forms. In my opinion, the art of storytelling may traverse through any style the author wishes to use. Be it literature, or illustrated pieces, as long as the story is "good," I will support it.
Now, what makes a story "good?" A personal opinion? Perhaps. But for me, the key ingredient in making a good story is consistency. If a story is consistent, the author may write about whatever they please. What does it mean for a stroy to be consistent? The art of storytelling comprises of several technical aspects: Character scheme, character development and interaction, plot progression, and world building. There are other aspects one may account for in writing a good story, but these are the most important to me. A story, no matter how ridiculous, must be consistent in all of these aspects. If a story has, for example, developed a character to a specific degree, then decides to contradict that character's development, the story is faulty. The author must ALWAYS take mind in what they are writing. All of my ratings will be guided by strict analyzation of the title. If I happen to give a title a low rating, it does not mean I didn't enjoy it. A low rating simply means it is technically inconsistent. However, I often have trouble enjoying titles that give me such a displeasure.
Lastly, feel free to greet me with any topic you would enjoy discussing. And remember, the theme of a story is not to be judged, for the judgment is only your personal opinion. If one is going to critique a story, do so by the consistency and skill of the author.
