For me, it's when an anime fails miserably in every aspect, and is simply an insult to the word "Anime" and to all it's watchers.

Have yet to find something worth a 1. To be honest though, I think I would have to try really hard to find something that 'bad'.
Lowest thing I've rated was a 4, and it was from mild curiosity, not trying that again.

Just this once, I'll fulfill whatever your wish is.

Basically when I have a small/big personal dislike towards it, and it has bad storyline, clichés, which are not fun too watch. Mediocre to bad animation, lousy soundtrack. Repetitiveness, where nobody learns from their mistakes, shallow characters. Over-hyping while the show is mediocre, etc. etc.

"Appalling" - that is what you interpret. Higurashi Kira is the only anime I've rated 1, because it was a spit in the face of the rest of the franchise. If it's so bad, it probably doesn't make it to my list, since I would drop it 1-2 episodes in.
I'm also filled with pure-hearted ulterior motives.

The only 1s I've given were for the purpose of lowering the overall site score. I usually put the real score in the tags.

I rated one anime as 5, Kenshin's 2part OVA remake. Honestly, unless if you vote purely by enjoyment, i don't see how it would be possible for an anime to be such a fail that could fell under the category of 1-3.

The only one I've rated a 1 was Yugioh, because it was simply horrible in every criteria. It had a bland and irritating cast, a cliché story that was just a ripoff of Pokemon, and god-awful animation, as well as one of the worst soundtracks I've ever heard in an anime.

Theoretically, if I were to score something a 1, it would have to actively offend me in some way. And I don't mean necessarily by being racist or antisemitic or whatever. I mean it has to take something near and dear to you and treat in an utterly horrible and embarrassing way. In that sense, I guess if you were a giant fan of some Manga, and the Anime adaptation completely changed the point of the story, then I could see why you would score that a 1. That's how I feel about the upcoming World War Z movie. That book is a favorite of mine and they are throwing everything that was good about it in the garbage and making some dumb Brad Pitt action vehicle. I could easily see myself scoring that movie a 1 if it is particularly bad.

I don't have a 1, but it'll base it off my 2. From the only 2 (Natusuyuki Rendezvous) on my list, I'll see if I can describe it right (insert chewing professor here of course):

A show that has an interesting premise where you really look forward to the next episode, but somewhere in the middle you find out it's just a bunch of garbage. The execution becomes a letdown.

BUT, you keep watching in the hopes that "it gets better." Which is why it doesn't end up dropped. So you keep watching, episode after episode, hoping that it'll redeem itself in a sudden twist or climax.

...It never does.

If seeing someone compliment any element of a series whatsoever makes me lose all faith in humanity, and any reference or allusions to it make me feel physically ill, then it is a 1/10.

I hope to never encounter such a series again.

Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).

I kind of consider 2 to be my lowest score because I don't really think I could dislike something enough to give it a 1. I did give MOD a 1 though just because.

Unwatchable wasn't the right word. There's at least one anime that I felt failed in every aspect, terrible animation, bland soundtrack, poor plot writing, bland/annoying characters, yet I was still able to sit through it so I didn't feel right rating it a 1.

Well, I don't know about the whole "unwatchable" bit, since a terrible movie that's a little worse than terrible series can still be more watchable, because a movie is only 1-2 1/2 hours long, while a series can be dozens or even hundreds of hours long, making it harder to sit through even if it's slightly better than a terrible movie.

Hope that made sense.

Also, what do you mean by "You still haven't watched Yugioh"? I actually have, it's on my list if you hadn't noticed.

On the rating scale, a 1 used to be labeled "Unwatchable" before they changed it to "Appalling".

While the first half of GX was...compelling, the second half just threw the show in a river and hand cuffed it. I remember loving Yu-Gi-Oh! so much when i was a kid, that even my little cartoon kid mind knew that GX went downhill pretty fast. With all that being said it did have a decent start.

Either way they're both kids shows (4Kids Yu-Gi-Oh! especially, the original subbed version is still a tad darker), and shouldn't be taken too seriously. The original is still very good for what it is.

EDIT: Why was the first half of GX compelling? It's because it combined card games (which i loved watching) and a good school atmosphere, which is always fun to watch, and it managed that rather well. The show started to suffer once it began deviating from that, and tried to become something more.

I have 3 titles that got 1 from me. All of those are some of the worst anime I ever saw.
Mars of Destruction
Tenkuu Danzato Skelter Heaven
6 Angels
What makes them a 1. Horrible plot or more like no plot, awful art, and overall making me loose hope in humanity. Yet they would be great to watch drunk with a bunch of friends. Alcohol makes any anime good, but watching them sober and alone is just painful. It's not even like masochism, because there's no pleasure from the pain. Just the feeling of sadness.

I agree completely. One of the worst things that can happen to a good series is for it to try and become something more, something it isn't. After episode 25, Death Note tried to change, and tried to up the scale of the show, adding a lot more characters and some additional organizations, and I think that was a huge mistake, it was perfect the way it was. I think it would have been a perfect 10/10 if it had ended on episode 25, and Yugioh GX would have been much better if it hadn't done the same.

A nonsensical plothole infested hideous piece of thrash. E.g. Mars of Destruction.

And when I think back about it, the last episode of Hidan no Aria fits the premise just perfectly.

It's a gamble. If it does succeed in its ambitions it becomes a 10, a great show and what not. Otherwise it will be one of 'those' that tried and failed. But for any show, that step is a slippery one indeed, a greedy step, so to speak. But most have to take it if they wanna consider themselves 'epic'. And I use those comas in the most sarcastic way possible.
