My life consists of Anime Watching & Music Making...
My rating scale:
10 - A pure masterpiece. It did everything right, period. This is an anime that I will remember forever.
9 - Basically perfect, minus some minor flaws. Definitely an show that will be on my favorites list for a long time; if forever.
8 - Very, Very Good. This is a show that thoroughly impressed & entertained me while watching. While it's no masterpiece, I definitely felt a strong connection to this show and would highly recommend it to anyone.
7 - Good. Basically a majority of shows that I've seen thus far. Definitely entertaining with pretty good characters/story overall. But nothing over the top that makes your socks fly off.
6 - Fair. A show that gets this rating would be "alright." Nothing too entertaining, but just enough to keep me motivated to watch. Still above average and holds a pretty good feel in the end.
5 - Average. Anime that get this score did nothing to impress me, but also did nothing to make me hate it. It is probably a show that either confused me, or just wasn't too entertaining. Might even nod off while watching.
4 - Meh. MAL considers this bad, but I consider this to be a "meh." It's just not good, like at all. But there's probably some reason as to why I (probably) completed it.
3 - Bad. Now this, is bad. Not many anime make it down this far. But the ones that do are quite special, because I can usually find some redeemable factor in most shows. Please just stay away from this.
2 - Horrible. I haven't found too many shows that has been this bad. But I assume at this point I'd continue watching only because of how laughably bad it was.
1 - Atrocious. This would be considered hell. It's basically so bad that I probably wouldn't even consider it anime. I hopefully will never come across a show this bad, but I'm sure they're out there.
