Hello and welcome if someone got lost here. Either to discuss something with me or to throw salt at me.

My name is Alex, I am now 25 years old and have been watching anime since I was 10. Originally I was something you could also call a "weeb" in the early years of my anime scene. Back then I rated every nonsense with 10/10 stars and I didn't think that there was actually a difference between good and bad works and that it was all in the taste of the people. In the meantime I am enlightened and write critical, neutral as possible reviews. I spend the rest of the time at my campfire and try to organize my thoughts on my trip.

In any case, there is one point that has never changed for me over the years. I still think bad anime can be entertaining too. There are actually one or the other anime that is below average and can still come across as personable. Nevertheless, one should not be guided by feelings when making ratings.

My evaluation standards are as follows

1⭐Disaster. To go down that far, you have to make one mistake after another without making up for it with positive points.
2⭐Not worth seeing. A work that failed in almost every area.
3⭐Weak. Such series have almost nothing to speak of, but you can still watch them somehow.
4⭐ Below average. Titles that have a lot of wasted potential.
5⭐ Average. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
6⭐Series that can be called "above average" through their implementation.
7⭐Very interesting series that cannot be at the top, but are very well remembered.
8⭐Great anime that stand out from the crowd. They are lacking in some areas, but these works will never be forgotten.
9⭐ An unparalleled top title in every aspect. Will stand above almost all other works in the future and many will talk about them.
10⭐A title that could come closest to the "word" masterpiece. Such works are almost flawed and have shown great quality in every area.

Intermediate evaluations such as 5.5⭐ / 10 ⭐
show for me only that the work was able to stand out from the average through a few special events or scenes, but could never prove itself further.

And noted, there are no differences between the genre focus.
A comedy can be on the same level as an extremely difficult story flick. Each work has its own genre approaches and must be assessed and judged according to its own standards.

i agree, and i still don't like it today: i wanted to clarify that i wrote that before i developed my own taste, so i ended up just looking for things to hate and giving it no recognition whatsoever.

my apologies i wrote that when i was,,, not the most reasonable person?? i think i just looked for things to hate, honestly.

Loool I was half asleep when I made this, I'm gonna correct it but episode 12 (I think it was, the one in the forest ) really shocked me just out of nowhere.

Well I liked the plot but I realised that it was not going the way I would enjoy.I don't necesserily hate it, I like the aesthetic, I liked some of the characters, but things were getting predictable and I realised that I would eventually lose interesrt. plus I would rather watch something that meets my standarts and not waste my time on something I can't set my heart to.

P.S thanks for commenting

Thank you! I think i will read the manga just so i can continue to see my favorite characters and how they develop. Although the anime stops following the manga after episode 20-24 like you said, I wouldn't say the rest of it is horrible.
