It's a great balance between the three actually. It is surprising how good that show is. I only wanted to give it an 8/10 but it just was too good, had to give it a 9.
Oh, I promised I would explain my rating system. But first off, I'll explain something. I do indeed drop a lot of things but I only do it if it fits my criteria to do so. I basically won't drop something I started unless it is a reallllllllly long shounen with no end in sight(one piece, naruto...) or if I give it 10%(rounded down) of it's total episodes. So, for something like senjou no horizon, which was 13 episodes, I had to watch at least two episodes before I dropped it. I'm very trust worthy of my anime senses and a lot of times I watch things that I know will not be good to me just to reassure that. Now most of the time I do give anime more of a chance than that because some things need further evaluation but I'm confident in when I drop something and rarely do I pick it back up but on that off chance, I may feel I didn't give something a fair chance. Hyakko and Turn a Gundam come to mind.
Anyway, here's how I rate things.
I really like a show with some/ a good amount of romance. is bakemonogatari the one?
I thank you for ur list. I rate things very similarly. But i also often include a nother rating for "stupid enjoyability" it's one of those things that i feel. As long as an anime has what i am looking for, a good ecchi factor sometimes, romance , action and what not. it gets a good score here. basically just hits my points. I agree with all the ones in ur 5 list getting 5. as they wre just bland. but some get a good score on the "stupid enjoyability" scale
I;ll go down ur list and see how i feel about ur ratings.
3/10 haha yep. fhukufuku no campanella. it was one of those that i thought would get a good "stupid enjoyability" score and just an anime to generically watch...nope...couldn't even last the first episode. after the first episode was over..i was all...wtf?
4/10Darker than black did not interest me at all! lol , inuyahsa had a good non generic score and a good/decent stupid enjoyability score. but the series lenth and how it keeps on repeating some themese dropped it down to this 4 also
5/10 I saw Tayutama, to aru, asura crying. other than To aru majutusu. I give tautama and asura crying a decent/good score on my stupid enjoyabilty scale.it's when u start thinking and stuff that drops it too average...to aru majutstu...come on!!! it's repeating the same mistake inuyahsha did omg torlolololol. you have good female leads that u want to see development in...u almost do. and then it's over. u basically restrt the whole and every single thing. This would get a 4/10 if not for the production values so yeah i agree
6/10 MAYOO CHIKI! lol! great score on my stupid enjoyability factor. it's when u start thinking that makes u go :/
7/10 ..hmm i liked the idolm@ster but i would drop it down to a 6/10. it wasn't generic too much as it was an idol thing and u don't see those too much. but other than miki and one or two other characters. they were all just very bland. the ending also leaves much to desire. Aishteruze babay >_< if it didn't get such a low production budget, this would make my 8/10 list(anime) easily. the child's voice..perfect. just perfect and adorable! the manga gets a 9/10. i never finished hanasaku iroha. im on 22 and have the rest on my hard drive...finish? Kampfer...a bit weird and gneric with not much ging on. i give this a 6/10
8/10 i think usagi drop got a "Drop" haha on aishteruze baby due to production values in ur mind. i would drop (lol) bunny drop to 7/10 due to not too too much happening and just a sweet story. if we add in the manga. it remains an 7/10.
9/10Gungrave.....how else can u say amazing...other than amazing(9.5/10)?!?!?! Really...just how fricking else...can you say amazing without being just blown away by this masterpiece here based off an american comic or story or somethign!? Cross game made me cry at the first episode, but after. not much happens. for me. a 6/10. I don't remember school rumble. i saw it before but don' remember it. Clannad...the regular stories in it and arc's are pretty boring. just slice of life...every day. KEY, nothing amazing here. but what Key does do amazingly. IT DRIVES HOME. I cried the most in this anime. not afraid to admit it. how it mixes in sound with emotion...perfecto. Spirited Away. great movie...absolutley stuning. how do u fit all that in a move...wow. other good movies i would add here; voices of a distant star, 5cm per second
10/10 i've never seen legend of galacgic hero's....and the old art kinda puts me offf. if u don't mind. im interested since u loved it. giving me a description of everything u like and a personal plot? :3
Never saw Metropolis. i got a song thta somebody made an amazing AMA with it in though. Toradora. i give it a 7.5 to 8 for me. had great charcter development and stupid enjoyment points but didn't drive it allthe way home for me. Never saw the original macross; but the macross froniter, i thoroughly enjoyed. i would give that an 8.5 though. Code Geass and Death note...now for me...they live here. Gungrave is teh close next door neighbor.
OK IT'S DECIDED! LoGH is my next full anime to watch. The reviews have spoken :) After reading about Poor Annerose, i just had to know what happened to her. and then everything just sparked. looked up review and went on nyaa. the rest is history :)
