    Joint Bleach 485 Review

    this thread is the place where we will prepare the review. I will post the infos and the format. anyway,let's start with your preferences. I will do the analysis (the plot of the chapter with comments),but another one of you can help me in doing that.

    this is what Alphabeta said,there shouldn't be problems in reporting it:

    Whatever, here's a small tut about the format of this joint review.


    Predictions:

    The predictions are more or less the easiest thing to write in a review, however, the secret between writing a good prediction and just making up random guesses is a little tricky. The thing is that in order to come up with a reasonable prediction you need a good understanding of how the mangaka handles things. You need to know the manga on a very good level. If someone asks you in which chapter a certain event happened you should be able to guess the correct chapter within ± 10 chapter range (though, I’ve never actually tried this, lol ^^).

    In the end, just like with everything else, you’ll just learn it after a couple of times. It’s nothing hard. Though you probably won’t need it in your first review, but predictions are divided into short term predictions and long term predictions. In 90% of the cases, a review features short term predictions, but periodically, long term predictions appear as well.


    Impressions:

    If the predictions require a good amount of knowledge about the series in general, the impressions section focuses on one individual chapter instead. Generally, this section can be divided into three main “sub-sections”. Plot, Art, and Characters. Obviously, these section can have an endless amount of their won sub-sections, but that’s something you review when you’re confident enough.

    For beginners, just make some comments about those three sub-sections I mentioned and everything will be fine. Add a small remark about your opinion of the whole chapter and the impressions section is ready.


    Analysis:

    I daresay, that this section is the toughest one. It’s kinda like a “reverse-prediction”. A prediction requires knowledge about the previous chapter to imagine how the future will look like. The analysis requires the same knowledge, but instead you have to explain how this chapter fits into the storyline of the chapters before it. It’s actually rather complicated to explain, especially since there are no strict rules or guidelines for a review format and additionally every reviewer evolves his/her own writing style, so that easiest thing to do here, is really just read other people’s reviews and try do it “like them”. You’ll develop your own style in the process.

    One of the biggest mistakes beginner reviewers make is writing a summary. DO NOT EVER WRITE A SUMMARY! You mention what happened in the chapter, and after that you explain what it means. The explanation part is the most important thing in this section. If you don’t write it, the analysis section becomes a boring text version of what the reader has already seen in pictures.

    Re: Joint Bleach 485 Review

    I already contacted them,The Underscore won't be with us this week,and the others haven't replied yet. I'd like to know what part they want to review,before starting the discussion.
    Anyway,the group should be made of:

    Mattiaildivino (Team Captain)
    Mrlazsa
    danzouismadara
    SaitoSpike (?)

    these guys should start requiring me what part they'd like to review.

    I'd like to do the easiest one. So, the predictions, since it's my first time attempting this. Let me know what you think, okay?


    Can someone message me an anime that's similar to d grayman or claymore or deathnote?

    Ive seen Deathnote, deadman wonderland, fairytale, shigurui, ao no exorcist, beelzebub, samurai champloo, code geass, devil may cry, Hakuouki, monster, blood plus, gantz. Basically, something with demons and gore.

    Re: Joint Bleach 485 Review

    O.K. With three people on board, it should be possible to pull this off. From what I've seen so far, the distribution should look like this.

    Analysis: Mattia

    Impressions: Lasza

    Predictions: Danzou


    If Saito pops up, he'll share the analysis with Mattia.

    So, team captain-san, what do you think of this plan?
