Hello, I am Lecremtinion a game dev with a past in Level Dev, narrative, programming and testing which makes me extra harsh when it comes to anime and game related anime content. I love to talk about a lot of things, such as... Security, Operating Systems, Anime, and Gaming.
Hmm, perhaps I should be more specific in describing myself since this is a bio.... ok... Like Hitler, I have a million kills and only one death, I camp more than Anne Frank, and get more care packages than Haiti. O, and I get more first blood than the eighth-grade girls' bathroom. Now that I think about it, it took Jesus three days to respawn...talk about lag.
If you have any questions feel free to ask. I'm generally fairly open about most things and try to be nice when I feel I can :3
Rating Scale ("be sure to check out the lists tab")
"What did this bring to my day?" / "What did this bring to my life?"
0.5 = Less than shit which is a true achievement! Id, like to erase it from my mind. [Critical Flaws]
1 = Eternal Dumpster fired Blessed by hell as sacred garbage! [Critical Flaws]
1.5 = Failure Too many things went wrong to salvage the worthwhile pieces. [Critical Flaws]
2 = below average / I expect at least this as a minimum standard for anime or manga before being released to the general public.. . [Critical Flaws]
2.5 = Above average / attempted something different/good try "Would I recommend this?" If it came up in context.
3 = Memorable / I smiled It was strong enough in its core factors to be memorable
3.5 = I thought / I was Emotionally Invested / I smiled --> I Smiled/ I was Affected or Immersed
4 = Excellent but rough around the edges/lot of questions. It might have been mired in its concepts by the end, but still innovative/dramatic/enjoyable
4.5 = Best Experience / Missing 1 or 3 Critical things.
5 = Favorite List Worthy / I laid back in my chair at the end & applauded or shed tears. Well Done!
Story Endings: Hot take regarding raitings
"Ending is "Paramount" a bad ending drops a rating number by 1 or 2 full stars. Story's should end at a point where people are satisfied enough that a second or third season is just bonus expansion content and not intended for the purpose of answering question's left unanswered by the first season. I keep finding ova are being used again and again as giant plot hole patches. Sword art online extra edition is a glowing face palm example of this.
Oh, you say they will continue in the second season?
Well, I disagree! Unless the creator is a specific studios, There is no guarantee of a second season regardless of any anoucement or sales numbers!
So, finish it up in the first season, or don't stop making episodes until you do have an legitmate ending!
The judgment does not take voice acting into consideration because I simply don't care about English dub, sub, or any other language as long I can understand it and the story is clear enough to follow. In most cases, I don't care about the graphics for two reasons. The first is that far too many people view graphics as something that defines the quality of story or anime. It rarely does and if it does, you can tell in the first 10 minutes of the first episode. If that is the case, it was designed as support to do that not a standardize anime style like 90% of anime today. The show Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls isn't a very good anime and yet its art style turns it into one.
As such I don't treat art style as part of my raiting scale unless it is done creatively and impactufully. Ya I will watch through all that BAD CG. Because often enough the rest of it is solid. Ive also seen enough game success being determined by its art and its honestly painfully sad.
Things I hate!
I hate it when shows mention locations we will never see, such as minor countries or ancient locations. I get the need to talk about all the alliances or cultral background and world building. But, it reaches a point where it becomes annoying to talk about those things and not show them or the after effect of those things even breifly in a few episodes. As game dev, world building can hurt you just as much as it can help and that applies even more so to anime due to time constraint and determination to stick to 12 episode by most companies. Worldbuilding creates a lot of questions and lot of plot holes and most people who start thinking about world building, never implement it well and its obvious that someone didn't try hard enough when you look at how tiny the wikki is. Don't bring up interesting shit and waste potential by not using it.
Unlike most people, I care about lore and take great joy in reading through and editing wiki's.
For me, the primary concern for something to be memorable is character development, world-building, Immersiveness and Details.
Other things I hate would be reviews before episode 5. Most anime studios operate under the episodes are the testing phase for style and direction. you only reallly should know what story is going by episode 5 because intros should be done by then. its pet peeve of mine to not drop anything untill at least episode 5 so that I give it a fairshake and even that its rare for me to drop something. So if I do something went horrible wrong and if my view matters to you then may want to consider the fact that i dropped (X) as a concern.
One last thing!
age is just a number
prison is just a place
raise your glorious hammer
and smash right to space
life is a game
sometimes you win
lolicons can be so lame
unless you have twin
scripts can be late
when it passes the date
better to comfy your mind
take your sister and go on a date
