Scoring System 10 - Something that makes me emotional like nothing else in the world does. Benchmark: Eden of the east 9 - Both technically excellent and entertaining, leaves a strong impression, but falls short of having a personal connection. Benchmark: Kyoukai no Kanata 8 - Slightly lacking in either appearance or story, but is generally a well-rounded series. Benchmark: HaruChika 7 - A good series with less impact. Likely has one or more characters/ideas/themes that I really like. Benchmark: Bungou Stray Dogs 6 - A decent series. A pleasant watch at the time, but something I feel I won't remember in the near future.
Effectively means nothing to me. Benchmark: Sore ga Seiyuu 5 - Absolutely unremarkable. Neither good nor bad. Evoking little to no interest from me. Benchmark: Coluboccoro 4 - A series that isn't awful but just can't hold my attention, or was disappointing in some way. Benchmark: Zankyou no Terror 3 - Has one or more characters/ideas/themes that I actively dislike, with few redeeming qualities. Benchmark: Le Portrait de Petit Cossette 2 - Visually, narratively, and thematically poor. Benchmark: Million Doll 1 - There's a special place in hell for shows that offend me this deeply.
