Hey, its Exp. I grew up watching Pokemon, Yugioh, Megaman on TV in the 90s and started being interested about anime ever since.
I like any type of animes so it hard to say which anime or genre I like the most.
Characters need time to development they may not come out strong but weak at the start and build up to be a strong character at the end. A basic concept for any shows/movies that directors and producers use to keep us, the viewers, entertained.
Genres are broad topics, any genres could have bad and good topics behind them, but if we leave them out we will miss out on great shows or stories that we have yet to explore.
Any stars and reviews i give are not 100% accurate because I do not intend in giving my all in writing it out and deciding what the anime is about and the reason behind I liking them. (Although in the future I may write reviews so I can go back and see oh thats why I like this). This is a reason I will not have many reviews and many 5 stars are just animes i really enjoyed which is probably 60% of the anime I have watched, if you want to hear my opinions you might as well ask me directly via profile or message me or look for my name in the forum discussion of the anime if there are any from me for that anime.
The list of anime I have watched is very old, most 5 stars are just ones I really liked, or has a good story. I will try to keep my new anime added to the list up-to-date with this outline:
5 star - Excellent Anime, might re-watch in the future (may not be 10/10 on review could be 9/10 or 8/10, but it is based off story)
4 star - Good Story and anime may lack in some fields(bit rushed. need more seasons?, unanswered plot holes)
3 star - Decent Story but missing something (ie... Lacks storytelling, Lacks character development, poor background details, rushed)
1-2 star - Bad story development? Bad character story/background?
Every anime is unique, if you start comparing them to another, then what is the point?
Some or most anime may take the ideas from previous aired anime/manga or mangas that was never produced into a anime, and either may or better or use their idea for their own story. Most animes have very similar concept to one another, but what makes them unique? Its their story they are telling, the characters, the plot, the background, the settings and so much more. Don't Judge a book by its cover. Some people whom watches take a few episode and goes oh this remind of X, but if you watch the whole season it may not. Sometimes it just might be worth sitting through them.
Is my list accurate? Yes I did, once upon a time I watched every single anime on the list and re-watched some.
Do I remember each one? Probably not, I can give a vague summary unless I re-watch them or it was recent or I really enjoyed them and remember their story.
Want my opinions on some anime I have watched? Feel free to post and comment on my profile I will try to get back to you as soon as possible
