It's still worth watching but it has distinct flaws. Same as 7.

literally this

5 is "average" and that's it

But 5 isn't average. On a scale of 1-10, 5.5 is average.

Above average. Enjoyable, but has many flaws.

For most people, it means good. For me, that's below average.

I am personally offended whenever somebody rates Strawberry Panic a 6/10.

A masterpiece in boredom maybe. Never watched it.

I have no interest in re-watching it and wouldn't recommend it to anyone else, but it was enjoyable enough for me to not regret having seen it at all.
Now you're wondering if there's white text in any of my other posts.

Over there, I'm everywhere. I know that.

Not good, not bad. It's a 'meh' rating when it comes to me. That means it wasn't bad enough I'm crying about wasting my time, but not good enough to leave a lasting impression on me overall either.

Everything 6 and above means I enjoyed it. 5 means I was watching to kill time but didn't dislike it. 4 and below means I was watching it to kill time but didn't like it. Most of them I actually dropped but I felt putting them in my completed list or it'd feel like a waste of the 4 and below scale.


This exactly sums up how I rate. I do usually complete animes despite rating them low. The only thing is that if an anime is given a 1 I'll watch it but then make fun of it with my boyfriend and crack jokes during the series lol.

I guess you can compare it to a grade in high school.

Passable not really good tho. Not something you would show to your parents or friends. Wouldn't want to score again in a class or assignment.

I wouldn't necessarily say it's a "bad" rating . But I only give 6's to things that still have some kind of interesting theme to keep me watching , but isn't impressive in any other way. 6 is seriously just the "it's ok" rating for me .

6/10 for me generally means that a show is pretty good for the most part, but suffers from a major flaw or several minor issues.

Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita is probably my favorite ecchi because the mc girl is so freaking cute and the theme is hilarious. I rated it a 6 because I thought the writing was kind of bad lol but I don't think it was meant to have "stellar" writing anyways. The series was meant to keep your attentiona and it did exactly that.

I just don't understand why people wil get on me about giving certain animes a 6, but a 6 meant that I liked it.

Even some animes with a 4 had things I enjoyed, but they were overall really bad lol. It doesn't mean they will be bad to everyone else.

To put it into perspective I rated the first season of Yuru Yuri a 5, the second a 6, and the third a 7. When I told my brother this he said "oh, so it's not very good" and I told him "no, it's an amazing anime. You should really watch it".

I loved yuru yuri, but I also rated it a 6. I think it's a nice show, but that is all.

I am sure there are better yuri animes out there.

I rate an anime with a 6 if I find it to be slightly above average. Mostly stuff that is not really outstanding or good but that is not that bad either.

why can't they make a spin off anime with her as the mc only?
She was the best thing about that show lol. I love her so much.

My opinion is the same as many people here, good and enjoyable, but not so much that I'm going to talk about it and probably wouldn't recommend it. It is definitely a positive score though.

Same here. The scale on MAL lists what each number on the represents so I just use that as the guideline. No need to redefine what a 6 is.

5 and 6s are both ratings I give to series I found average.
My 6s are shows that maybe failed to move me but still had interesting settings or intriguing characters that made the whole time I spend watching it worth it.

6/10: I don't actually think it was bad, but it was really boring. Uninteresting. When watching a 6, I'm not paying attention much or getting attached to the story much.

I see many people voted that they think a 6/10 is considered bad. I'll list some of the animes I have given a 6 and I'll explain why I gave them the score. Why am I doing this? Because I am bored and I need to be mentally stimulated somehow.
You guys should also explain why you have given certain animes a 6 :) it'll give me something to read lol.

Clannad:after story I loved the scenery and I actually liked the plot a lot. The plot was the best thing about the series as well as the character Ushio. Why did it not get higher from me? I hate the character cliches, and the cliches are a bit too much to overlook. Also, despite the plot being good I thought the actual writing for the plot was underachieving. I know many people said the ending ruined it for them, but I didn't think the ending was as bad as people claimed. Although, it would have been better if the ending was completely different.

Dirty Pair To me, it is mindless entertainment. I enjoy the girl power theme and I like how both the characters are strong female role models. However, there is nothing special about the series at all. There is nothing bad about it, but there is nothing good about it other than the characters (even then the characters aren't stellar).

FLCL I know people will hate me for this lol. I loved fooly cooly as a kid, it was my favorite anime at the time I watched it. I watched it when I got older and I now understand the theme, but I also don't think it's spectacular. Again, there is nothing bad about this show, infact the writing is better than any of the 6s I have given to the other animes I just listed.

The big O I love the writer for this anime (he helped write for hellsing and serial experiments lain), but there was something missing from this show. I thought the theme was great, but I felt the writing was a bit bland. This is surprising since the lead writer wrote such great animes.

Yuru Yuri This show is so freaking cute I can't even take it. I know some people say it's geared towards men, but I felt it was geared towards women actually. I can't rate it higher than a 6 because nothing stood out other than the cuteness.

Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita Like I said above, I actually love this show a lot and I usually don't like ecchi. Yes, there is fanservice and I hate fanservice, but I knew that going into this series. The writing is not very good, but it's not meant to be good and I don't care. It's funny and Fino is so adorable.

lol that explains my mean score. It's not super low, but I mistakenly watch animes that I don't enjoy and I will sit through them out of pure boredom or the hope for something better.

THANK YOU! In my eyes I think the grading school system should have 50% as a D (that's how it was in my differential equations class and organic chemistry class).
