I don't usually read other peoples reviews. I like to form my own opinion. Yet I do write CR reviews on occasion.

The only time I read reviews is when I've seen an absolutely terrible anime, and then I read the reviews of people who have loved it and I think "seriously?!"

damn it can't remember but what series was beginning like that.
Remember there was some that was REALLY good that started meh or quite boring.

Actually, The Asterisk War started really poorly in my opinion, what with OP music virtually stolen from Arpeggio of Blue Steel, ED visuals sneaked off of the cutting room floor of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and some horribly unoriginal characters and storylines. I'm glad I continued watching, because the show eventually came together (becoming one of my favorites last season), but those first few episodes were rough. . .

A hell of a lot better than MAL reviews.

Over there, people feel that if the anime ain't the best damn edge of the seat thrill ride ever in the history OF EVER and beyond than the anime is trash.

Fuck if it was entertaining amirite?

I don't look at written reviews unless the show gets under a 3*.

Because everyone does a 4 or 5* on CR even if it's kinda bad, a majority of 3* or lower must mean something's up. I still watch it, but I'll be expecting to not like it.

I look at the reviews of the anime I really like, sometimes. Everyone has different taste. Lol

Yes but missing out is easily better than losing the gamble and wasting my time with a poor anime.

As opposed to the vast amounts of time we all waste already I'm sure.

To each their own I suppose.

No. Why would I trust random users' recommendations?
