I give you two words: Thank you. Thank you for beign one of the few who actually noticed that some shows have flaws, one who noticed that there are some good qualities in shows that are not that good, one who doesn't get blinded to what others say, and one who wants to give the best experience possible for fans. I go to your blog because of this and because you are a good person and a great fan, Because sadly, some people just watch a show in order to criticize about it. It's so toxic it hurts!?
You’re welcome, Anonymous. When I first read this message, I smiled from ear to ear and got a little teary eyed. I needed this.
I always try to stay positive but when I see a problem with something, I will mention it. I do not believe in the uncritical consumption of media. You can love something and still recognize the flaws in it without suddenly becoming a “hater”. Conversely, you can notice good things in something that is otherwise flawed and objectively not good. This is why no matter my initial reactions to a show from the pre-release designs and concepts, I give every tokusatsu series 5 episodes before I pass judgement. I am oftentimes pleasantly surprised as in the case of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. Yes, sometimes I get caught up in the pre-premiere negative hype but I am willing to admit when I am wrong and eat a little crow when something turns out to be better than it looked.
