I admit my powerlevel isn't that high at all. I've probably only watched ~150-200 series but watching something based on a review is just stupid.

By director, by animation studio, by VA, by source-material authors, by lewd doujins, by soundtracks, by reading the source material. I'll never understand the concept of anime reviews; "let's watch to see if my opinion is vindicated/validated by others"

This would make shitposting an anime easier, just watch the review then go to /a/ to shitpost.

Probably the same retards that watch people streaming video games instead of just playing the games themselves. Something is seriously wrong with these kinds of people.

How can you be so lazy that you can't even play a game or watch a show by yourself? You need other people to do leisurely activities for you.

I fear for the future.

I don't know, GoatJesus?

He's pretty young though (only 19 I think), so he doesn't always have the best experience in what he's talking about. At least he actually talks about shows based on their thematical elements and weaknesses from a storytelling perspective, which is something I wouldn't see in most reviewers.

On the other hand, he liked FMA 2003, and I don't know how to respond to that. At least, I think he liked it.

I'd be down for watching something if the content is actually good and I respect the person's opinion. But honestly, the only thing remotely close to that I watch is TB for vidya occasionally if I want to find out what a game is about.

Every anime related channel I've seen is absolute horseshit, run by people with the anime experience of /r/anime and MAL.

>>121662489
Depends on the manga. In general, though, I'd focus more on meaning and narrative value, rather than things like art style and technical details. As far as I know, good English-language manga criticism is nonexistent, so it would be fun to fill that niche.
Of course, I probably don't have anything especially valuable to say.

>>121662586
>>121662667
I was of the opinion that those who watch reviews are either individuals who can't form their own opinion and perception of a work, and therefore seek reviewers to spoonfeed them one, or are looking for validation of their own opinions because they feel unsure about them.
>>
>>121662975
>>121663161
These. Only the part about MAL ironically watching him, I'm pretty sure that reddit and MAL actually take his shit seriously.
>>
>>121663015
Fairly sure he made a video saying that lolis didn't cause any harm to anyone, but should not exists because:
>muh morals
IIRC, he seemed to jump from each side, ending up on the lolis r bad because morals viewpoint.
If you've watched a few of his other videos, you can see why this conclusion generally goes against what a reasonable person would have expected.
>>
>>121663198
That's mostly correct. I personally watch TB as I said, to view an opinion I trust on whether a product is off good quality or not. I don't adopt his opinion on whether X game is good or not, because our tastes defer.

Most people don't use reviews like that though, sadly.
>>
>>121663015
>>121663015
Holy shit how new are you? This and the waifu video exploded when they came out.
Long story short he did a video on how lolis being bad (I can't remember exactly, watch it for yourself) and then claim that his video was shit.
At least he left it up compared to some other bitch.

>I had to get my anime in 3 parts on youtube.
If you're over 18 you never had to do that unless you were new to the internet.

>>121663198

Well, that's a rather simplistic way of putting it.

I mean it's not wrong that some people are indeed that way, but it's just as true that there are plenty of people that like to see how the other person perceives a creative work.

Also like >>121663270 said, seeing another person's video on a game, even if you don't agree with their opinion, can give you an idea as to what the game is like and if it'd be worth spending your money is, because being informed as to how a game is makes you a more intelligent consumer.
>>
>>121663215
>>121663274
He's right though, loli is morally wrong and I can't wait for it to be completely illegal within the next 20 years. The majority of the civilized world governed by intelligent, rational non politically backward places are already working towards this goal.

The only people who complain are pedos and they can all die for all I care.

Admittedly Op I watched episode reactions of Fate just to watch secondary reactions. The ones after Saber was choked out were especially humorous

>>121663400
I think you should learn the definition of loli. There is nothing wrong with having young girls on screen.
Governments are banning/banned child pornography, including for most countries 2D pornography.
By the way:
>loli is morally wrong
That is not English.

There's never going to be a S&E of anime. Those two went to film school, they extensively studied film as an artform, they understood why some things work in films and others don't. And even then the two had very different tastes (Ebert liked Tomb Raider after all).

I don't watch any videos, but I'll sometimes read a review on THEM anime or the Nihon Review. I'll usually do this after I watched the show.

It's nice to get a different perspective and look at things a different way when watching a show again, not that it really influences my opinion. For example, I've seen CotS/BotS 7 or 8 times and no complaint in a review I've read of it has any valid point in my opinion.

>>121664274
Seriously, in the past week or so it seems like there's been a huge influx of people just generally posting shit and acting like they're fresh off the boat. Capitalization, abbreviations like "IMO", and of course the pushback when told those are the wrong things to say here.

This may be 4chan, but there are some standards. Kill yourself.

I only wish that the mods would accept the interpretation of >>>/global/rules/13 that says using a tripcode/name as one would use a username on other websites like reddit, tumblr, forums, etc. is essentially attaching a signature to all of your posts, which would violate rule 13. With moot gone, you can't just email them and ask for a comment on it, since they never reply to the Feedback thing.

>>121664501
It's still something video game related, and two people being able to say it pretty much simultaneously just shows /v/ is afoot.
