I don't score dropped series (since, for all I know, it may have gotten 50x better the following episodes) and since I use the MAL scale (with a 1 being unwatchable), there is no series that can score a 1 with me.

However, I always give any series at least a full episode. So if a one episode OVA or a movie is so horrible I wanted to join the rebellion in Syria and destroy any remaining decency in the world, I would give it a 1.

Otherwise, a 2 is my minimum for a completed anime.

Pretty much this:
I almost never rate things I haven't finished, as things can change dramatically, in both directions. With a 1 being, according to MAL's scale, unwatchable, I would only rate something that low if I couldn't even finish a full episode. Obviously, that means I can't have finished it, and therefore can't have rated it, creating a paradox.

A 2 is as low as I'd even consider going, and even that's extreme.

Oof, I'm not sure. I've never given an anime a 1 before. I'd probably give that score to an anime that had ZERO redeeming qualities whatsoever. I've watched a few that have come close to a 1 but none that I could find myself giving a 1 before.

Well, the MAL scale for 1 is now "appalling", not "unwatchable".

I have never watched an anime terrible enough to garner a one (thought I might watch Mars of Destruction one of these days), and my lowest score is a three. That said, an anime could "earn" a one if it was:

A.) Laden with plot-holes and ass-pulls that are extremely obvious;

B.) Burdened with an awful cast of characters with no redeemable features;

or C.) Weighed down by terrible animation or an awful soundtrack.
And what if all love is an act of bravery?

Could you look me in the eye and say that you are not afraid?

Well hot damn! I did not even notice that until I checked just now. I wonder when that change happened.

I think I'll still stick to my previous scale though.

A 1 is when you say there's no way in hell I'll ever watch something worse than this. I haven't given out a 1 yet, but I might change my mind about mahou sensei negima.

In my opinion, nothing can really deserve 1 out of 10. If an anime isn't to your taste ok, but don't give 1/10. This is not criticism, it's hating already.

Then its not a 10-point scale, its a 9-point scale.

Yes and there really is an invisible 11 and 0. Nobody should not give a 1 or a 10 because it's not the lowest.

Yup. A 10 doesn't have to be perfect, and a 1 shouldn't be suicide inducing.

A 10 anime for me, would depend in the outcome of the plot, I don't really care if it starts slow, but if what's next compensates the beggining, it could be a 10.

If it's only fight and fight, I would not care, but an anime for me NEEDS to have a strong plot. It could be a easy 1 if the plot sucks.

What makes an anime a 1 out of 10?
Simple, when nothing in it works.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone.

I'd have to really dislike the plot for me to give an anime that low of a score. I can never bring myself to give an anime a low score though, so it'd have to be pretty bad.

1 = Appalling. So to me, it means exactly that. It lacked pretty much everything in all the character and plot departments.

That, or it just laughably bad.

A show that deserves a 1 for me would probably be something dreadfully unentertaining that has no significant positives that I can pick out.

The lowest score I've ever given out was a four, to be a one it'd have to be pretty Godawful, like not even fun in the "it's so bad it's good" sense on top of everything else being done horribly wrong.

Still haven't given an anime a score of 1.
But if I did it would probably be to the one that's really painful to watch. In which case I'll just drop it.

I've been lucky enough to avoid any anime that would fall below a 4, and when I do run into those kinds of series, I end up not bothering with them. If I had to think of a series that comes close to a 1 in my book, it'd be Chitose Get You.

I would agree, except Hinako COMPLETELY saved that anime for me. She might be one of the funniest characters I've ever seen in an anime. Take her out of that series, it's a definite 1.

I haven't given anything below a 5 yet and don't think I will ever do so(even if it deserves it). Well, if every possible area is extremely UN-entertaining in a series then I guess thats a 1/10. Storyline is important, the character, theme, visual, music, etc...if everything is wrong then it will get 1 from the majority.

I can't give out 1's because I'm always trying to find something that can count as quality in a series, regardless on how bad it was. ; u ; I think my lowest score ever was a 5. Because even if the characters are dreadfully bland, or the story is rubbish; things like the music or art style can raise a rating for me. So I feel like someone would have to actually try to make a crappy series in order to get a 1, at least from me.

idk, for something to be a 1/10 it would have to be so earth-shatteringly horrendous that merely watching it was enough to offend the very fiber of my being.

I don't think there's many anime out there at all that are deserving of a 1. The lowest score I've ever given is a 3, and those are more of a personal dislike of rather than a critical score. For something to be a 1 for me, it would have some horrible, confusing jumbled-together plot that makes no sense at all and poorly-written characters who don't have any real substance to them. I value consistency highly.

I've never given a 1 because I could never finish anything that bad and I try not to rate things I don't finish. If I can finish an anime it at must have some redeeming qualities IMO.

It seems like most people rate things based on how much they want to impact the average score which is kinda sad.

my most hated anime is
Dragonaut: The Resonance

i gave it 4

i have only 5 anime with 3/10

i think 1/10 mean broken unwatchable uncomplete

i think of same 90's OVA like angel cop or things like that but even the worst anime will not get 1/10 it so harsh

but i know lots of cartoons (non anime that can get that)

search for titanic cartoon (there 2 titanic cartoon movies)
and NIMF 2

Check my list, I've only rated one show a one and I would say anyhting I could copare to it on the same level deserves at most a 3. In other words WTF why the hell would you even make this shit? Sort of deal. It has to be pretty terrible for m to rate it 4 or below.

An anime is a 1 when it's so horrendously terrible that i feel like killing myself from shame and disgust. Thank god it hasn't happened yet!

(Eiken would be a good candidate possibly lol)

If an anime is so bad it's good however, it would get the same ratings a generally GOOD anime would. I'm weird like that xD

For all the fans of the classic game, Chrono Trigger. I advice you to watch the OVA and you'll see what 1/10 material is.

It has to be complete and utter trash, devoid of any positive qualities whatsoever (besides laughing at how terrible it is). Mars of Destruction, Psychic Wars, Sword Art Online, etc. I have only given four anime a 1 though. Maybe that will increase if I watch more of the so-called 'worst', but you have to be some kind of a masochist to persevere through that.

A one means I would rather get a vasectomy without anesthesia than watch whatever it was again. It's basically reserved for the sickest, most twisted, disgusting hentai titles.,,,at least it should be but I haven't gone and double checked all my ratings after I entered them so there's probably irregularities.
