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.

Well, it has always been a problem, i can't really pinpoint why exactly, that the few shounen that are good story and character wise always end up in some random studio that fucks em up, and studios that can produce quality animation and sound just pick whatever random shit they come across. Like madhouse for whatever reason thought that overlord and no guns no life are worth their trouble. Beats me. 

I don't know, like yeah, demon slayer has a better story than fairy tail, but character wise is even worse i believe, overall its probably better cause also it isn't like 600 episodes long for no reason but yeah, i just throw them in the same bin. There is not much difference between an average shounen, and a shounen that is slightly above or below average. Same shit. At least fairy tail is not pretentious, it is what it is, fighting, boobs, nakama. Demon slayer went for some drama and atmoshere that completely flew over its head.

One shounen i found suprisingly ok, was world trigger. But it had to be Toei that made it... like... dreadful production values. If it had demon slayer level treatment, everyone what jizz their pants about it. Community just goes apeshit whenever something with such pretty colors and sound comes around. They did that with demon slayer, they did that with one punch man and they ll do it when the next medicority that has amazing production values will come.

Thanks for your input

Well, we agree more or less, but i wouldnt call it impressive. Its presentation, yeah, that's impressive.

And the blonde mop head, he is the exact opposite of pleasant. Maybe he is bearable in the manga, where you don't have to hear him. 

And i wouldnt say it's better that those other shounen, but it isn't worse either... (except dragonball, anything is better than that)
