What is this forum and how does one write a review?

Post by takenoko » Wed Feb 18, 2009 7:40 pm

It's kind of like the idea I had for people to write summaries of the shows, except this one will be strictly for people to browse reviews of shows assuming that they're new to the show and want some spoiler-free information about it.

If you want to write a review, just create a new post in this forum, and I'll link to it here.

Possible fields:
Plot
Main charactesr (maybe be split into protagonists, allies, and villains)
Catchphrases, devices, weapons, vehicles, bases, other show special features
Trivia (translator notes)
Reasons to watch

Rules
1) Terms should match the translations used by TV-Nihon
2) Names should use Japanese order, the way they're done here

Heh, there's a guy named Brian who's doing reviews on HM at the blog Disciples of Boltax (bonus points on getting the TF reference). So far, he's done the first four episodes:
I might do reviews on one of the TF series... But, it's only a thought for now. No promises. ;)

This forum is for introducing a series or movie to a person, so information about plot stuff beyond episode 3 of a TV series is probably not a good idea. Also, movies are pretty short. It's supposed to be a summary, something short for people to quickly read and see if they're interested or not

Pictures are probably a good idea

Also, I added a category for reasons to watch. If you don't like the show, please don't bother contributing. Up front, I'm going to say that I'm going for a positive bias with these reviews. I don't want these forums to turn into a debate that'll distract from its main purpose

We have episode release threads for more detailed discussion, spoilers, etc.

Err, I already have half a summary written up on Dekaranger. I'm just getting usable pictures. I'd really hate to have all my work go to waste.
