What all the bits mean....
Type: series or movie
There might also be short movies and compiled series.
Genre: science fiction, fantasy, cyberpunk, martial arts, etc..
This would indicate only a general genre of the movie or series, and
does not indicate what sort of classification Anime is typically put
Dub/Sub: Dubbed or Subtitled
Animation quality: range from 1 to 10
If the program could compete with a full length Disney film, then it
would get a 10. A 1 would be assigned to something resembeling 1960
almost-single-frame animation. Most Saturday morning toons are a 5.
Generally, the animation quality of most Japanese animation is around
7 or so.
Rating: range from:
This indicates a range of rating based on the rating system used in
the U.S.. Basically:
G - "General audience". Would not offend anyone and mostly
suitable all ages.
PG - "Parental Guidance suggested". Basically, this movie or
series would have bits which are probably too intense for the very
very young. It might contain some adult language, but probably
not any nudity. It probably is a bit violent, but probably not
particularly gore filled.
PG13 - Parental Guidance, some material may not be suitable for
children under 13. Basically, PG++.
R - "Restricted". A basic adult movie or series. It could very
violent, have nudity, adult situations, and adult language. Most
Anime ranges from PG to R.
NC17 - "No child under 17 admitted". More or less a more intense
R. The movie or series probably contains extreme violence,
and/or adult situations.
Why: why I think this rating applies.
N - Nudity
V - Violence
AS - Adult situations
AL - Adult language
MT - Mature themes
MO - extream "monster" out effect
A lowercase character indicates a "minor" "why", such as minor nudity.
General overall quaility: range from 1 to 10
A 10 would mean that you should go out any buy this program
NOW. A 1 means that the tape the program is on
should be recycled to more useful purposes. Most anime I own is an 7.
