Hello. I am only here for one reason.
« on: May 14, 2014, 10:38:20 PM »
I have been long following The Nihon Review for the purpose of getting deeper and better insight into reviewing anime, as I believe this site is the best for that. I have always wanted to talk to the reviewer AC in particular. Given the low population of this forum, I don't know how else I would approach him other than through this.

If he is willing to talk to people anyways.

Welcome to the forums. You can message AC by clicking here. He is generally very busy in real life but he is usually willing to talk if you have something meaningful to say.

Now wait as Mods lock this thread.

AC, huh?  Interesting.

I don't know why I find that interesting, but I do.
I'm just like you, only smarterô.

Probably wants to complain about his terrible K-ON!! review. The show clearly deserves an 8. How dare he give it a 5!

Also, surprised this isn't locked.

Got moved to the right place by Sorrow, no reason to lock it unless the OP disappears.

Also, you're right, that K-On review is way off the mark, but last I checked we stop at zero.

I don't know, it just feels strange that a topic specifically calling out to someone would actually be allowed, since that's what PMs are for. Everything we can possibly post in this thread can only serve to derail it more from its original topic.

But honestly, AC's review was actually one of the things that led me to the site in the first place. The full story was something I wrote for the 2011 Staff Contest, but I ended up never submitting it. Here's a segment though.

I would love to see a 0/10 review for K-ON!! written by you. It'll quite possibly be the best thing I'll read in my lifetime.

Honestly I wouldn't give K-On a zero.  After all, a show that has been recognized by the Food and Drug Administration for being a valid alternative to melatonin deserves at least a point for being useful.  Also, the typical Kyoto Animation production values were there along with some inspired music.  That's at least three points.

Giving something a zero is not something I do lightly, even K-On doesn't deserve it.  That doesn't mean my review wouldn't be an endless cascade of "z"s only stopped by a "3/10" rating at the end.

Also, you're right, this thread sucks.  Locking it.
