Madman Anime Reviews
My Reviews are graded out of 10. Mostly because that is how I have been rating Anime ever since I began watching.
a score under 2 is a territory we best not partake in.
a 3 is is just terrible, it would atleast have some good art or music.
A 4 would be a “so bad its good” kind of anime, its horrible and we all know that but its tolerable to some extent.
A 5 is generally just below average not necessarily good or bad anime , I would not recommend it to anyone except hardcore fans.
A 6 is an average score and is an anime I would recommend to a fan of that particular niche or genre. for example I would only recommend Canaan to action fans.
A 7 is a good anime. Any show with a 7 rating is recommended.
An 8 is a very good anime and is a show I would recommend fans to buy.
A 9 is an excellent anime and is one I can recommend to everyone, even people new or alien to the medium
a 10/10 score is a masterpiece.
While animation and music are very important to have in order to complete a great series or movie, the story is what I mainly focus on. In an anime that does not have a central plot at its core, the character interactions is what I use to judge it by.
Because I will be reviewing DVD and Blu ray copies of anime, The English Dub will also play a very large role on getting a high score.
Extras and Packaging are also put into consideration in my ratings.
Buy It! : Speaks for itself really.
Borrow It! : If the anime is either too expensive or is just luckluster in certain areas but still very good, this is the final verdict it will recieve.
Try It! : If the anime is good but only recommendable to a particular niche, this is the final verdict it will recieve. ( This refers to seeing at least an episode or two before commiting fully to a purchase)
Look Away! : Speaks for itself really.
