Larkawolfgirl's 2017 Anime Challenge Completionist: ME, bmaca10
Hey, there! Feel free to call me Dria or Larka. I waste most of my life thinking about fictional characters. I like all genres, but my favorites tend to be action, romance, fantasy, sci fi, and comedy.
Since sometimes people ask me, I don't really have any defined standards by which I rate things (mostly it is based on the plot and my overall level of enjoyment).
Sort of how my anime ratings work
.5 One of the worst things I've seen
1 Dang that's bad
1.5 That is pretty bad
2 Not my thing but I saw a bit of potential
2.5 I saw some potential but aspects of it were just bad (or undeveloped)
3 My sort of catch-all category for average. Anime with a good plot but bad development, unncessisary aspects, etc.
3.5 Good plot and any negatives are outweighted by the plot and/or characters
4 Really good and few negative aspects
4.5 Truly great
5 My favorites (nearly perfect)
My manga ratings are less specific, and more of the 3 ratings fall on the "this is good but only average" side instead of it having specific negatives aspects I disliked. (Basically, if when I'm caught between 3 or 3.5, I'm more likely to rate an anime 3.5 but a manga 3. Idkw)
Some of my lists (although I have not updated these in forever)
List of least-favorite anime (aka, worst anime I've seen)

░T░h░i░n░g░s░ ░I░ ░l░o░v░e░:░
Stories with meaning/symbolism, kick-ass women, anything with wolves, characters with development, characters with tragic back-stories, time travel, psychological stories (ones that make me think about existence, or those that mess with my mind), fantasy, unique stories or artistic elements, rounded villains, polyamory.
░T░h░i░n░g░s░ ░I░ ░d░o░n░'░t░ ░l░i░k░e░:░
Stupid/annoying people, endings that make the entire story meaningless such as it all being a dream, pure episodic storylines, shallow female characters with only one or two character traits (give them character! It shouldn't be that hard), dragged out fight scenes, rapey yaoi tropes. Also not really a fan of love triangles. More just because it has become such a trope and I think "why can't you just all get along?"
