New idea for anime reviewing

So I don’t really enjoy the normal method of reviewing, I think it’d be more fun if a review was purely how you felt about the episode as it progressed so I’ve come up with a way for me to do that. I will watch an episode and post my commentary as the episode progresses. The link to the video will be at the top and I will post the minute and second of the video for each comment.

At the “end” of the episode I will give a rating of how the episode was and my average feelings throughout the episode. ie. anger – 4/10 , sadness – 6/10 and so on so forth.

I plan on releasing the first one on Saturday the 2nd, it will probably be a bit rough so I will be looking for feedback on what you thought of it.

Please feel free to let me know what you think of this idea and don’t forget to vote for which series you would like me to do first.

 

** I know I haven’t released the reviews for Black Rock Shooter and Elfen Lied  yet and I will try to get those out as soon as possible.
