So I've been wondering this for a while, and I created an account just to post this comment. For the last few GN reviews how come every one had a B, B-, B+ ? Nothing seems to be below a B- and nothing seems to be above a B+ are these series just all B series?

Seeing as how you made an account just for this I figure I'd give you some kind of answer. You don't have to listen to what these writers say. This is their opinion and criteria so they are not right. it's up to you to decide. This is meant to give a general score to the volume as itself. The story is of course as a whole (at least the manga version and not anime) a 10/10 for me because of it's distinct characters, fights, art and attention to details. But some volumes do have varying grades if you were to look at them separately but that's a given as some parts will drag and other's won't. If you are asking why this particular reviewer gives B's, maybe he/she just makes all volumes have a borderline grade and goes from there?

Apparently, the reviewers thought so. The reviewers are free to rate things however they want. It's just a coincidence that there were several reviews from this reviewer in a row that all got B ratings.

^Yes, pretty much. I really, really want an A or a C series to cross my desk sometime soon, because I was starting to question myself with all the B grades I've been giving. (I'd rather not have a D series, though...) I do consider each grade before I give them, and this truly felt like a B volume with some of the overdone/heavy-handed elements, no matter how much I wanted it to be an A.

I think the fanbase would agree with you on the Grades for the early volumes
