Blog Carnival, Clannad After Story, idividuality, K-On!!, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Toradora
Having read all the 17 entries of this Blog Carnival, the participants all have agreed that rating an anime is highly subjective due to an infinite number of reasons.
So why is that so? Anime is an art. It’s an expression that is purely creative with the intention of stimulating our imaginations. Clearly, individuality defines the perception of the viewer–albeit we are using our brains or hearts. And because of this, it’s exceedingly impossible to recapture that sole authentic entertaining experience. For instance, none of the 17 participants came up with identically the same criteria or basic elements that affect the way they enjoy an anime. Indeed, some agreed that animation, plot, and character immensely influenced how we take pleasure in watching anime. But, if we are going to dissect what makes a good character, plot and animation, nobody stated exactly the same factors that defined these.
