i love anime.. i love it that much that even though i find myself critically scrutinizing things on any particular show, i try my best to still enjoy it fully and appreciate whatever the creators did..
and nope.. i don't read much manga or light novels.. i like visual novels more..
how i rate
from 6-10.. if i finished it, it's fine.. so anything gets at least a 6.. incidentally, one can look at this as an equivalent of 1 to 5 star rating system, where i just raised the bar so as not to affect the anime ratings much and to give it a casual avid anime fan's rates feel.. statistically, it also has the effect of putting the mean at a few points less than 8.0 while keeping a very low standard deviation and keeping the rates discretely quantized to more obvious differences between each level because there are only 5 options.. this is to minimize the burden in me choosing between more numbers.. i drop anime, too but they do not have the right to be in my list..
6 -- meh fine average show.. or something that should've been good but ended up being a disappointment
7 -- good average show.. or overall meh shows that has a special factor..
8 -- a really likeable show that is executed well no matter how ordinary it may seem.. or a great show that i personally do not like..
9 -- overall great show..
10 - a masterpiece.. stands out from the rest and seems to be made as a masterpiece from the start..
