My Anime Rankings

Locodol Anime

I decided to create this blog to explain how I rank different anime. If you would like a reminder on how I rate shows just see the link here, My Rating System.”

I don’t compare anime with each other I just rank them base on how I feel about them. For example, I would normally rate Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun with a One Thumb’s-Up, but as it has made me laugh a lot I bumped the show up to One Thumb’s-Up and a Pinky. There are some anime in the One Thumb’s-Up and a Pinky that I don’t like as much as the others. I like Gonna Be the Twin-Tail! and Cat Planet Cuties! more than The Testament of Sister New Devil. I like those shows more than One Thumb’s-Up, but not quite enough to give them two. As a compromise I’ve gone half way by giving One Thumb’s-Up and a Pinky.

I decided that I’m not necessarily going to review every single anime that I have watched or am currently watching. With some of them I don’t necessarily have anything to say except that “I think it was good” or “I thought that was ok.” I enjoyed the anime World Break: Aria Curse for a Holy Swordsman but I don’t really have anything to say about the show at this moment in time. I enjoyed it and I liked the concept of the characters remembering what they did in their past lives. However, I don’t have anything to say about it. I just liked it. I may write a review about it in the future but not anytime soon.

Here is my ranked anime list.

THANKS FOR READING

From now on when I review anime I will add the link of this blog to each one. I will put it under the conclusion heading of the review and right next to the “My Rating System” link. I don’t know if I will do a separate blog to list my ratings for manga, films and games. I’m happy at the moment just doing this.

Thanks for reading. =)

World Cup 2014

Summer Tidings.^^/

 

I’m having a very good summer so far. There are number of stories that I would like to share with you about the shenanigans I got up to. Like my thoughts on Mario Kart 8, going to Applewood Farm Pub Quiz (World Cup special), my illustrations, potential new ways for me to socialise and completing the anime Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic. I really enjoyed that anime and I will be looking to pick up Magi: The Kingdom of Magic.

 

But- all of that is irrelevant to this blog! 😉 I’m talking about the World Cup 2014! =D I will be watching this as religiously as Thomas the Tank Engine and Non Non Biyori. Haha. =D My first thoughts are ‘COME ON ENGLAND!’ my second thoughts ‘I can’t wait for the first match tonight.’ =D Because of the time zone in England I’ll be watching most of the matches at 9 or 10 in the evening. They’re roughly the times when they kick-off  here in England.

 

I have made initial predictions about who will qualify from each group…

 

GROUP A: Brazil to qualify on top, Mexico runners-up.

GROUP B: Spain to qualify on top, Chile to come runners-up

GROUP C: Ivory Coast to qualify on top, Colombia to come runners-up.

GROUP D: …wishful thinking perhaps but England to qualify on top and Italy to come runners-up. 😉

GROUP E: France to qualify on top, Honduras to come runners-up.

GROUP F: Argentina to qualify on top, Bosnia and Herzegovina to come runners-up.

GROUP G: Germany to qualify on top, United States to come runners-up.

GROUP H: Belgium to qualify on top, Russia to come runners-up.

 

I feel that since the hosts are Brazil, and considering the whole terrain and climates I feel that the South American nations will have a big advantage over the European nations. I’m up in arms about Group B as well. Spain is probably the best nation team in the world, or at least one of them, so there’s no doubt in my mind that they will come out on top. I initially predicted the Netherlands for second place, but then I remembered that it’s based in Brazil so I switched it with Chile.^^

 

I must admit that I’m not very optimistic about England’s chances. Of course I will get behind them 100% but how well will they adapt to the terrain, climate and air before they play Football? I think it was a good idea that they had warm up matches against Ecuador and Honduras before the World Cup event. With the quality in our side we probably should have won comfortably, but to be honest, I think two draws is more than we could have hoped for. I’m especially thankful though that we didn’t come away with any injuries, the tackles by the Honduras lads during that game was horrendous. I’m not sure if they were deliberately trying to rough us up or if they were missed-timed tackles, but regardless, I’m just happy that most of the players are fit for the World cup. =)

 

How do you rate England’s chances? Are you watching the World cup? Are you excited? Roll on Brazil vs Croatia. =)

 

Fare Thee Well for now.^^/
