First of all, I only rate animes after I have finished them. Thus, I'll never be rating dropped, watching or on-hold animes, as do I believe entire series must be watched before being able to be judged. For that reason, it is rare to find a score lower than 5, which drives to my second point: If I'm watching an anime I'm definitely not enjoying, the chances of me actually completing it are quite low. Therefore, there aren't many low score animes at my list.
Besides that, I follow exactly what MyAnimeList suggests to use as a scoring system. First of all, I rate them in terms of Story, Art, Sound, Characters and Enjoyment; then I average all partial scores in order to have the definitive one. Below you can read my understanding of the scores I give, mainly for the "Enjoyment" partial score.
10. Masterpiece: Reserved for the best of the best. These animes have touched me in some profound way, and I consider them "masterpieces". 9. Great: Animes that were marvellous, but did not hit the mark to be considered a Masterpiece are evaluated as "great". Maybe I feel the show was too long (Death Note), maybe there was a damn annoying character I fully despised (Code Geass), maybe it has some logical problem (Ano Hana), or something else. 8. Very Good: These are animes that I enjoy, which made me pretty engaged with it. They have some flaws. 7. Good: The bulk of the lot. If I enjoy watching an anime, but feel nothing more than that, I feel it is "good". 6. Fine: Animes which I find entertaining enough, though lacking in many aspects, receive this rating. 5. Average: In general, these are pretty "alright" shows. I could have not watched them, and I wouldn't be missing anything. 4. Bad: Shows I disliked to watch, though nothing more than that. 3. Very Bad: These have left a pretty bad taste in my mouth. 2. Horrible: It has some quality that redeem it; despite that, though, it was a painful experience to watch. 1. Appalling: The worst of the worst. Hopefully I won't ever have to give this rating to an anime.
Retroactive score: I watched this anime before having a critical mindset about the medium in general. My memories about it are a bit fuzzy, and a rewatch would most likely make me change the score slightly, though I feel they are quite accurate.
Watched as a kid: As is implied, this is an anime I have watched as a kid - however, this tag is used only for those I have never rewatched. Therefore, I try to judge what I used to feel about them back then, and further modify the score by what I think about it nowadays. I do not factor nostalgia in. Also, since I used to watch them on TV, I'm likely to have missed a good ammount of episodes (DBZ and Pokémon come to my mind), as well as I might have rewatched different parts of the story multiple times.
Skipped fillers: If this is an adaptation and it contains fillers (typical for long-term shounen animes), I have not watched them.
Plan to rewatch: I will eventually be rewatching this show, mainly due to presenting complex themes. I might modify the score after this due to better understanding. Besides specific ones, I tend not to rewatch animes.
Watching with others: These animes, categorized as "On Hold", are only watched when I'm with certain people. Thus, their progress is slow, though it does happen. When the anime is finished, I remove this tag from it.
