This may seem a little bias because I am a reviewer, but I don't see them as useless. However, I never really watch reviews before watching an anime (useless I'm really on the lookout for something new) I usually watch episode reviews and I watch them afterward watching the episode for further discussion.

hehe I make reviews but they are mainly for me to remember what I have watched. I don't watch reviews but I will look into anime that people say are similar to a series that I really loved

I will read a review but I have no interest in watching one of the many ADHD youtube vbloggers.

My time is too precious. I don't have enough for watching anime, so why should I waste it on watching/ reading reviews.

I honestly don't I am the kind of person if a reviewer hates it thats the moive I want to see. For most part they range from helpful <giguk and gr> to down right nasty <JadedOtaku> lets hear your point of view

Well uncletim, I sometimes watch/read some reviews every now and then, but regardless of what a reviewer's opinion may be for a series, it's really up to me. I don't allow their reviews to influence what series I watch

I like watching reviews.

Currently subscribed to everyone from Podtaku on Youtube. So far, their reviews have pointed me in the direction of anime that I ended up loving, and given good views on anime I've already seen.

Even reading reviews from various sources has helped me pick out anime I'd like to watch. Read a few positive reviews, then a few negative ones, and it's easy to determine what anime might be worth sinking time into. I really don't like to just pick an anime at random, or based on simple summaries of the show. Sturgeon's Law applies to everything, after all, even anime.

I like Podtaku too but it almost boils down to three guys picking on one girl but they do know thier stuff

I read reviews rather than watch it over in youtube. I only read it to compare views on the anime I'm currently watching. I think it provides great insight to see where you agree and disagree.

Rofl, so many stuck up people here, honestly. "Why would I waste my precious time" Oh god.

Anyways, I will listen to some of Forneverworld's anime reviews. It's the best thing I'm going to get to hearing opinions of others on what I like to watch. since I don't have any friends who watch anime. He may also bring up some points that I didn't think about. Also kind of a nice re-cap of what's happened. Just interesting to hear someone else's views.

damn i guess i'm one of the few who actually would love to watch 5-6 reviews after im done watching the newest episode of a weekly show (AOT, HxH, naruto/bleach chapters)

My experience with the episode wouldn't be complete or the same of i didn't watch these reviews.
some are funny, some are interesting and raise questions and points you haven't considered before hand.
reactions to awesome scenes that you're excited about and want to discuss.

it really does help filling that gap of having friends that don't watch anime or aren't excited about as you are.
but i'm really surprised people don't feel the same way. some of the YT reviewers are hilarious and some are sophisticated
it really is fun to watch these kind of people discuss your favorite anime and episodes.

P.S: try watching their reaction/review after watching your weekly episode:
Sawyer7mage, thephone999, forneverworld. these are my top 3. there are others that are good as well.

I don't watch anime reviews on youtube because sometimes they seem stupid... If I want to see how an anime is, I read the wikipedia or watch it myself or comments from the video... The only thing I watch for anime stuff are unboxing videos for dvd/blurays like <SlightlyOtaku> since they have good unboxings...
