Change for the better.
Some of you may have noticed I’ve been using richer content for my reviews. I try to embed a trailer of the series and some screenshots. I talk about the style of the animation, but never really showed examples. Therefore I tried to implement more media to give the reader a better sense of how the anime looks and feels.
I’ve also seen higher traffic thanks to this change. I knew Google liked images and rich media, but its really indexing my content very good. I also want to mention I got inspired by The Infinite Zenith, who goes the extra mile to always find the right images. You can read more about The Infinite Zenith in this special post.
While I’m trying to be more elaborate about visuals, the contents haven’t changed. I still try to write with a few things in mind, such as:
- Did it refreshen its own genre?
- How much did I enjoy the series?
- Was there any character development?
- Were the visuals on par with the studios abilities and the year of release?
There are many other factors that determine whether a series was good or not. I don’t want to be influenced to much by the community or hype around a certain series. It may cloud my judgment or personal experience. These are my reviews and, while there are factual matters that are equal to all viewers, it still remains a personal piece.
I hope you enjoy this updated reviewing style. If you have any feedback concerning the reviews or about this blog, you’re always free to drop them in the comments sections below.
