Like I’ve mentioned in my Seasonal Recommendations post, I’ll be changing the way I rate the series. With that, I’ll also change last 5 reviews (basically the ones that appear on the front page) to correspond with the changes. I’m changing it for few reasons.

  1. Some shows have high rating only because of how the system works (average score = final verdict), meaning that if the story was flawed, but the technical side was amazing, it’d get a higher rating. A rating it didn’t deserve.
  2. I felt binded by 1-10 scale, and had a lot of trouble rating some of the recent shows.
  3. Just because.

In all honesty, the system worked fine to a point. So, instead of being in “shackles” of the numerical scale, I’ll rate the shows differently.

  • Categories have no score, but I’ll try to explain maybe more in-depth what are the strong and weak points of each of them
  • The “Final Verdict” category will contain a rating system similar to what Glass Reflection uses (If you are not familiar, he goes from “Fuck it” ~> “Stream it” ~> “Buy it” ~> “Certified Frosty”, with the last one being his best of the best).

With that said, here’s how I will rate the series from now on, from worst to best :

  1. Skip it/Avoid at all cost
  2. Rather niche title/Appeals to minority
  3. Fairly decent/Average Joe
  4. Quite good/ Really cool/Amazing
  5. Masterpiece

And for some quick explanations.. The names of the categories will vary. Some won’t, on the first glance, have anything to do with those written above. They will differ from review to review, or they may be exactly the same. However, they’ll be kept intact with those “bases” above.  You will be probably seeing some mix of those categories as well. Best example would be Sword Art Online II. It definitely wasn’t an amazing series (Category 4), but it wasn’t the most decent-ish thing we’ve ever seen either (Category 3), as such I felt like giving it a mixture of both. It’s fairly simple if you think about it..
With that out of the way, I humbly present to you Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo Ghoul √A joint 2-in-1 review!
