Hello there, visitor of my profile!
Nice to meet you! I'm Tebak, an anime fan for just over 10 years. I'm also a gamer and a Japanese learner. Feel free to leave a comment on my profile if you'd like to have a chat, I'm always happy to get to know new people!
My ratings and preferences
I tend to like unique anime that have fun/interesting characters to show and stories to tell. Good art, animation, music and direction can also be important. When it comes to genres, the only ones I don't really care for are mecha, harem and ecchi. Robot fights usually don't interest me, and I don't watch anime for the purpose of looking up skirts.
You may find my ratings are generally low. That's mainly because of the way I use my ratings. 1.5 is the middle point, where everything above is a positive rating and everything below is negative. I made it this way because I don't see any point in having multiple ratings to distinguish between different levels of bad anime. If an anime doesn't have anything of its own to offer, then it's a waste of time either way. Therefore I only need two negative ratings: One for bad anime that has something to offer, and one for bad anime that has nothing to offer.
Keep in mind that my ratings are of course my personal opinions, and in no way an attempt at telling anyone what is and isn't objectively good
5 stars - Masterpiece. Could not realistically have been better for what it is. Not flawless, but the negatives are insignificant compared to the positives. I have yet to discover an anime that I can consider for this rating.
4.5 stars - Favorite of Favorites. An anime with this rating is near the peak of how good anime could ever be in my eyes. Anime with this rating will have prominent 5 star qualities, but fall short in other aspects.
4 stars - Favorite. An anime with this rating or higher is among my absolute favorites, and I've spent a lot of time thinking about it even after having seen it. In other words, it has a lot to offer and is very memorable.
3.5 stars - Fantastic. An anime with this rating has won my heart and there's nothing quite like it. It's without a doubt worth watching more than once.
3 stars - Great. Very enjoyable to watch and has something that makes it stick out and be memorable. Probably worth watching more than once. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind its genre.
2.5 stars - Good. I like it.
2 stars - Decent. The positives outweigh the negatives, if just barely.
1.5 stars - Average. The positives and the negatives are equal. Would recommend to a fan of the genre.
1 star - Bad. The negatives outweigh the positives, but there is still some form of value in watching it.
0.5 stars - Garbage. Either has nothing that stands out whatsoever, or stands out only in bad ways.
