__Series' overall ratings (personal preference, subject to change)__
Everything underlined below is a link to said page on anime-planet
This is strictly for anime (and anime movies)... if the day comes when I've read
a bunch of manga, I'll prolly make a separate thing for those. I enjoy voice-acting, animation
and various little things about anime to the point that I hardly read manga at all. I get that
there are several cases where anime adaptations fall way short of the manga in different ways.
I also very much understand people who prefer manga over anime by standard and why they do...
If I had twice as much time to put towards this stuff, I'd probably devote some 40% to reading
mangas, but I'm rather busy. I'll definitely look to start reading manga more at some point.
Nothing is going to make or break a series... It's always about all aspects put together!
I often appreciate series (and other things) beyond their "quality", because they happen
to resonate with me in a way that can't really be explained... sometimes I just 'get into'
stories, environments, atmosphere, characters and such...
It's noteworthy that visual quality has very little to no impact; as technology and technique
have developed further over time... Same goes for sounds/music.
No separation of different seasons of the same continuation, but spin-offs (such as Railgun
and Fate/kaleid liner) are exclusive. Metas with exclusive iterations (such as Fullmetal Alchemist and
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood) will usually be separate.
If I've yet to watch something, it won't be on the list. There's a lot of stuff I should've seen
by now but just haven't yet.
Many of the series that appear below have more than one season or sequels that might not always
be obvious! A good example of this is CLANNAD, where the 2nd season "After Story" is essential!
Kanacchi, Toyosaki Aki, Amamiya Sora, Miyano Mamoru, Koyasu Takehito and Hiyama Nobuyuki are
brilliant seiyuu <3
