angelmcazares's Anime

I am only listing here the series (movie series and 1 ONA) I have watched because that is the kind of anime that is the most important to me, and I enjoy the most.

3 Masterpiece, 19 Excellent, 61 Very good, 124 Good, 119 Decent, 87 So-so, 13 Not really good

I took into account the quality in story building and telling, character development, originality/uniqueness, production values and conclusion when rating my watched anime. My personal enjoyment is also taken into account, but I also want my ratings to reflect as much as possible how much I would objectively recommend a particular anime.
