I am a 23 year old with a degree in psychology and dance. I started watching anime (excluding pokemon and yugioh because I hardly consider those anime, more like cartoons) in late middle school early high school? on Adult Swim. My first animes were Inuyasha, Wolfs Rain, and Witch Hunter Robin. I didn't watch much beyond that until I was in college and figured out how to watch online (yes I know it's not that difficult) and since then I have been watching anime almost every day. 

Some of my favorite animes are: Mirai Nikki TV, Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin, Inuyasha, Code Geass, Attack on Titan, Arslan Senki (2015), Junjou Romantica, No. 6, Steins Gate, Another, Angel Beats, Jormungand, Black Butler, and more.

My least favorites that I have actually fully watched (or close to) are: Shakugan No Shana Season 3, Chaos;Head, Death Parade, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, D-Fragments, SOA.

Favorite Movie: Kiki's Delivery Service (No matter how old I get or my tastes change, I like this movie)

I write reviews when I have time although due to time and a bad wrist I keep a lot of them short. 

What makes an anime good in my opinion is not much different from what makes a good story period. It has to have a beginning, a middle, and an end. The beginning should draw me in. If you lose me in the beginning, what's the point of even having anymore episodes. The end should be conclusive. It should tie up that part of the story. It should provide closure. It doesn't have to reveal everything, especially if there is already a second season planned, but it should be conclusive enough that it can stand on it's own if it has too. I shouldn't have a billion questions. A conflict should have been solved and it should be the main conflict of that season. The story needs to be developed well too. The plot should have the proper structure and be well paced. The characters should also be well developed and interesting. Sterotypical characters need less development but should still be interesting. Depending on the genre, not all of these things will apply equally, however, the ending is the most important thing to me in the end (lol...okay bad joke I know). I don't care how good the rest of the anime is, if it doesn't have a good ending that concludes the story, it might as well not even exist in my mind. 

Animation style and art style matter somewhat. There are some styles that are beyond my ability to tolerate regardless of how interesting the story seems. As long as it's pretty normal though, I don't care about it much. It's the same with sound.

There are other things that apply only to certain genres, but I won't list them.

If you don't like my reviews, write your own. 

I have started reading manga a little, but it's expensive. 10 volumes costs more than 100 dollars! I can't read for free online because I can't stand reading on a screen and I lose interest in words on a screen pretty quickly. The only manga I have finished so far is A Silent Voice which I really enjoyed.

I DO NOT PLAY GAMES. I don't even own a game system. The games I play consist of solitaire and suduko on my phone. I did have a nintendo ds lite a long time ago but it's broken and I only played nintendogs on it.

Yes, all of it. The only 'insult' in there was clown. I think there are worse things than that. Regarding your one episode reviews, I'd say that's a very decent word to describe them.

Salutations,

Ah well, we can have a normal conversation after all. I do appreciate you replying to the post I’ve made.

First, as normal as it may seem to post an anime's first opinion, I hardly consider it a review. Therefore I am a firm believer in that such posts belong on a personal blog and not a review website. I have tried to hammer on this plenty of times, but alas my pleas have, more often than not, gone unnoticed. You can't really argue with a pubescent teenager, which majority of such ‘reviews’ usually belongs to.

What is also beyond me is how people can judge an anime, book, movie or pretty much anything by just quickly glancing at it and writing it off as tripe. Case very well pointed with Occult;Nine as the score it has right now (2.7) is abysmal. I would just personally hold off any sort of opinion and would watch the whole thing before actually writing on it.

Secondly, reviews in my opinion are two things: guidelines for somebody either in doubt or oblivion about something OR a way to voice your thoughts on a particular matter. When I opened Occult;Nine, I once again saw a single episode biased rant akin to: anime bad, too hard to understand, breasts, HULK SMASH! Hardly any sort of promotion for somebody on the fence about the anime, if you get my drift. This has, once again, sparked this whole thing we have going on now.

Lastly to justify what you deemed like disrespectful comment(s), I do have to apologise somewhat because this is how I am. I see no point in sugarcoating something therefore I would rather just give a dose honest and rock-hard reality. Such approach usually just works best, even if it seems low by most of the society, partially because nobody nowadays can take any criticism.

Well be it what it is now, I do hope Occult;Nine turns out be more like Steins;Gate and less like Chaos;Head the anime.

The comment you deleted wasn't rude or hateful at all...

Salutations, 

Mind enlightening me on what basis you have reported me again? I do not recall there was any profanity in my review, nor any insults. You were basically 'hurt' because I actually pointed out the stupidity in your writing, hence why you changed the review immediately the day after. English might not be your primary language, which is fine and dandy, but one does not have to have a degree in psychology to at least proofread the 100 words they have hastily scribbled down on the internet.

Regarding your 'don't like the review, do not read it' claim: if you feel like bashing an anime based solely on a single episode, I do not see any law stopping me from pointing out how absurd you 'review' actually is. Also here's a word of advice, and I realise that these words are falling on deaf, ignorant ears:  if you can't say something constructive, entertaining or informative, refrain from speaking until you actually can. It will make you look less like a clown.

Finished watching the whole thing. In my opinion it is better than a lot of garbage that comes out every season, but the lack of budget I think is what really killed it for most people in the end. Oh and while your review might not be the greatest, that other guy who said to delete this garbage is out of line, too bad trash like him won't just die.
