Pretty straight forward right? Well maybe it will become more of a challenge when you see what I’ve watched. Comment your recommendations or send me a post of your own list of recommendations.
I’m a staunch believer that you shouldn’t recommend someone something you haven’t watched, read or listened to yourself. With this I’m also a staunch believer in not taking any recommendation seriously unless the recommender has watched, read or listened to the recommendation themselves. Like with the credibility of anything, whether it is an idea or a suggestion of media, my default position is zero. I will not be completely convinced of its quality or even its existence, until I see the evidence that backs it up. Therefore if someone is trying to convince me that a recommendation is good enough to spend my time watching, their own conviction would have to be one of a person who has watched it themselves.
Not only having watched it but also reasons, what aspects of their experience convinced you it was good enough to be recommended. It’s at this point where you could say something positive about the characters, plot or story, or even show me an AMV, trailer or clip of an action scene to show me the quality of its animation. Better yet, if it could be compared to something that I have enjoyed in the past then a comparison would work along the lines of their similarities and how these elements were done well. Even at this point I’ll still be skeptical, but if done correctly I just might give it a go.
So I guess a good place to start would be what I’ve watched already and if there is anything similar to those rated 9 or 10 go for gold.
