If you somehow come across my profile and want to use my ratings to find something new to read, here is an explanation:

3 is true average. Not necessarily bad, just a good middle-of-the-road read. Or it had both bad and good elements, so it gets a 5/10 overall.

4 = quality (to me), and 4.5/5 are personal favourites.


Stalled = waiting translations, or bookmarked to read later.
Dropped = Not all necessarily bad, just not my cup of tea.


Ratings:

I'll rate something higher if it has: strong MC's with agency, entertaining chemistry/banter, situational humour, dark themes, and complex characters.

Biased towards: BL's, antihero's (especially if they are the MC), romance mixed with thriller and horror, psychological elements such as mind games, action. Philosophical themes or historical accuracy get a thumbs up, and I also enjoy fluffy stories if they get their humour right.

I'm partial towards unusual, twisted or unique plotlines/characters even if they are rough in other areas. I'm irrationally angry towards MC's that lack a spine, only lack one whenever a male lead is involved, or devolve into having the maturity of a 2 year old part-way through a story because the plot demands it.

Biased against: Boring/badly-written characters. Also: one-dimensional or annoying MC's, inconsistent logic, unnecessary angst, lack of communication, non-con that isn't depicted as trauma and cringe-based humour. I'm not usually a fan of school/office settings, and omegaverse isn't my thing.

Reviews: I won't typically bother writing about something unless enjoyed it. Since I use anime-planet to keep track of my guilty pleasure reads, anything I write is comparative to other manga works I've read in that genre (as in, I might write "fantastic characters" for a BL manga, but I'm not saying it holds a candle to Game of Thrones or The Expanse you know?).

Yeah I hope so too because I've heard there is one but it didn't say if it was the MC's or not
