The Magical Mahou Thoughts:
"Someone please give me a job"
10 - Masterpiece. Defies the medium and stands as what I'd consider one of the greatest, most personally important artistic works of all time. Works that I feel are life changing, inspiring, emotionally overpowering or even challenge the very standard of art itself. Some of these works resonate very deeply with me and go light-years beyond the shackles of being a product and becoming, in and of itself, a sincere personal, human experience.
9 - Unbelievable. A work that defies a standard of perfection, not only for the medium but for media in general. Works that resonate with me on a profound level and I feel hold a great importance to myself that allow it to go beyond being called "entertainment"
8 - Amazing. Exemplary on all fronts, a product of pure excellence. Works that I consider to achieve near perfection in the medium. Effortlessly induces incredible emotional highs and highly engaging. Superb in every way possible!
7 - Great. Engaging, memorable, creative and overall solid works. Pieces that I feel bring out some of the best the different elements of anime has to offer as well as being overall really fun and memorable experiences.
6 - Good. Interesting, fun and inventive pieces that uphold a good amount of integrity, sometimes engaging. Works I have enjoyed watching and liked overall.
5 - Okay. Interesting shows that fall short of being more than what they could be or never improving upon a boring premise or boring execution. Can be enjoyable, but to a degree.
4 - Below average. Considerably boring, drab, unimaginative works. Could also be pieces that fell so short that it could not re-achieve a former greatness it probably had. Particularly, also, works that I personally dislike for whatever reason but might hold up on some other front.
3 - Bad. The bottom of the barrel. Works that reek of the gutter waste that fester in the medium and storytelling in general. Generally, incompetently made.
2 - Awful. The worst of the worst. Abhorrent works so dumb, bland and juvenile you wouldn't believe it was made by actual human beings. No amount of merit it has could save it, if it had any at all.
1 - Offensive. Works that should have never been conceived in the first place. Not just bad beyond belief, but also disgusting and offensive. I feel physically ill after watching them.
*This system only exists to *generally* explain what I think of a show based on the score I gave it and of course, this would not apply to all as I see some works deserving scores for a completely different reason from what I listed.
