Understanding ReynTime's Rating System and How it Works For You
Warning: All scores are randomly reevaluated and are always a work in progress. My ratings are for your personal knowledge/benefit, but they are based on my experiences with the anime. Should you deem something controversial, I'm more than happy to discuss my logic behind the score in detail. If you like my taste, feel free to ask for recommendations or if you think I would like something please let me know!
When I watch an anime, there are a multitude of factors that go into a score. The most weighted factor that goes into my scores is whether or not it was enjoyable. Other factors that go into consideration are plot, character development, animation quality, art direction, its impact on me and the community, soundtrack, innovation, and so forth. I would like my ratings to be a guide for those deciding whether that particular anime is worth watching. I rarely review anime so if there are any inquires on an in depth opinion on an anime just PM me or leave me a comment on my profile and I'll gladly take some time to give you my final impressions of a particular series. Please keep in mind that my ratings are just one guy's opinion. Listed below is a general idea of how I felt while watching a particular series.
Abomination A disgrace to all forms of entertainment. It's going to be near impossible for anyone to disagree with me that this show is an abomination to have existence. I lost precious time that I cannot take back. There is ZERO VALUE to watching this. Even if you want to watch garbage, you will not find value, There's ZERO FUN to be had, it's a downright. travesty and should be avoided this AT ALL COSTS If you're a masochist by all means, but any self respecting viewer should stay clear from this. The show is harmful for your brain and you will feel nauseous and uncomfortable while watching.
Degeneracy I felt appalled and upset that I wasted my time on the series. There were no redeeming qualities. The show was so bad, it was outright offensive. If you have any self-respect for yourself, avoid any shows rated a 2 or lower by me. Any show rated 2 is for the masochist or someone who intentionally wants to be pissed off. All anime rated a 2 were watched because they were known to be terrible and I secretly wanted to experience how bad anime could get. Trust me, there are anime out there that are a disgrace to the art-form and entertainment in general. The only highlight for a 2 is that there's something else worse out there. There is no entertainment to be had with these shows. The show is undeniably bad. Why do these shows exist? For the train wrecks! These are legit bad anime without question. You want a train wreck? Look no further! A dropped 2 which is extremely rare means it was too long for me to finish, but my hatred for it gave me a very strong opinion.
Appalling It took more than significant willpower for me to watch it much less finish it if I did. A 3 means that I personally could not stand the series and would write essays on how much I hated the experience, but there's a actually a good chance that if you have low compatibility with me that this series is worth a shot for you. If I had the choice, I would go back in time and not watch the series. A show rated with a 3 is a show that has little to no redeeming qualities and will bring out rage or confusion. Essentially, watching these shows will be detrimental to your well being. Personally anything at a three or less is worse than fan fiction.....
Very Disappointing It's a multitask anime. The anime suffers from mediocrity, being poorly executed and is a bad anime in general with almost no redeeming qualities. If you're looking for "bad" look no further. Anything rated a 4 or less is something that has made me face palm and wonder why the show exists.
Bad, but Tolerable The show has something going for it, but I had a difficult time keeping myself engaged and interested. There's a chance that I found some sort of enjoyment from the series and maybe a few redeeming qualities about the show, but I found myself more disappointed than satisfied.
Okay Good enough to give it a try. It has its niche. Some anime that have received a six started off very strong and I adored the series until it reached an important plot development and went straight to the garbage. Other shows made me feel "been there done that". A six is a solid score that lets you know that ReynTime enjoyed it to an extent, but something was missing.
Decent The anime is "good", but the series has some notable faults (lots of tropes/ lack of polish/bad pacing, etc) that detract from the experience to firmly recommend. I may enjoy this show a lot, but I understand that the show isn't revolutionary and it's simply a guilty pleasure.
Great I recommend this anime. I thoroughly enjoyed the series. Definitely take a look into it. The show does many things right.
Amazing I highly recommend this anime. Anything 9 or above is something I consider to be an amazing anime. It played with my heartstrings. It was memorable. I'm a huge fan of the show, but the passion is not as strong as the shows I've rated a 10.
Genre Defining/ Masterful The show has earned my highest recommendation. It may not be perfect, but I forgave its shortcomings due to its outstanding strengths. The satisfaction and fulfillment I've gained from watching that anime has lasted months, years, and perhaps forever. The show gave me utter delight and happiness. Whenever someone brings it up, I instantly gush about how much I enjoyed it. In fact, any anime given this award deserves all the prestige and praise it gets. This anime will inspire you and help you enjoy enjoy your life more so than prior to watching it. Essentially, I am a fanboy of these shows and I believe that these anime will be celebrated for its outstanding achievement in entertainment. There are currently 4 anime series that have achieved this accomplishment.
