My name is Chijike and I am a Game Designer, Programmer & Environmental Artist that is fresh from Kansas and currently living in California. 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!
Note's "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 specific studios, There is no guarantee of a second season!
So, finish it up in the first season, or don't stop making episodes until you do have an 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 to many people view graphics as something that defines the equality of story or anime. It rarely does and if it does you can tell in the first episode it was designed to do that. As such I don't treat art style as part of my raiting scale unless it is creatively used. Also, I hate it when shows mention locations we will never see such as minor countries or ancient locations. It just gives the impression of a larger world that we will never see. Don't bring up interesting shit and waste potential by not using it unless the location was either destroyed. it's a back story as to why X party came here or why the nation is in the state it's in today. Unlike most people, I care about lore and take great joy in reading through episode wiki.
For me, the primary concern is character development, world-building, Immersiveness, details.
