Show my rating system:
The numbers in tags are adjusted into being links themselves, so if you click on a number in a tag, it will show every series I've assigned that number. The +s imply the show was close to the number above it, and the -s imply the show was close to the number below it.
For example: A show with a 7+ in the tag implies it was close to getting an 8, while a show with a 7- in the tag implies it was close to getting a 6.
10/10 Masterpiece tier: Best of the Best. While these shows technically have problems when scrutinized, they do such a great job of convincing you that they don't that you end up loving them regardless. Feels landmark in a way, some sort of special achievement you rarely see.
In grade terms this would be an A+
9/10 Amazing series: Nearly perfect. Above and beyond with its intention, shiny gems among the anime cave. Feels like more than just another show, one that left an honest impact to me as a person, in its goal to stand out. Grabbed me by the hand and never looked back in a quest for glory.
In grade terms, this would be an A
8/10 Great series: Some flaws that keep it from being amazing, but the show is really special when it does something right. 8s are shows that while not always phenomenal, hit this REALLY special soft spot that won't let me forget them. Almost consistently engaging, these are the start of shows that really resonated with me.
In grade terms, this would be an A- or B+
7/10 Good series: Whatever flaws this series had, they honestly did stick out, but the good qualities worked very well to make something rather enjoyable regardless, leaving for a solid series.
In grade terms, this would be a B
6/10 Okay series: A show that had potential or pretty good ideas but didn't follow through on them fully, while not botching them all together. Could be a series without much ambition with one idea going better than expected. Maybe had top of the line animation but a mediocre plot. More good than bad and had something to edge it ahead of the curve from other series. A title I enjoyed watching and didn't actively waste my time, but I don't have interest in seeing it again.
In grade terms, this would be a B- or C+
5/10 Meh series: That was....an anime. Either is a complete mixed bag, doesn't try hard, or doesn't live up to being good or terrible. Shows in this category are often "harmless" or having little to offer besides being "time passers", so in turn I'm largely indifferent to their achievements or failures. Can also be a case of wasted potential.
In grade terms this would be a C.
4/10 Mediocre series: The point where I start disliking shows. Make a lot of mistakes along the ride. Good elements exist but they can't save it or make it recommendable, but they still don't make the show awful, even if there's a good chance the writing was. Is the first rating where something has left me with a feeling of anger or discontent.
In grade terms this would be a C- or D+
3/10 Bad series: Very flawed and pretty darn terrible. Maybe one character was decent or one concept worked but it's a trainwreck through and through. VERY misused potential. Near bottom of the barrel, walked out hating it.
In grade terms this would be a D
2/10 Awful series: Don't ever watch this. Fails in nearly every way possible and the show feels like it's punishing you while watching it instead of being entertainment
In grade terms, this would be a D- or F+.
1/10 Sh*t beyond Sh*t: The worst of the worst. You'd have to try and fail this bad. A ridiculous achievement in incompetence. No redeeming value, over 95 percent is totally awful. In grade terms this would be an F.

20. Archer (Fate/stay Night and Fate/stay Night Unlimited Blade Works)
Truly his character is like no other character ever seen before in an anime. He's not just a three dimensional character, he's fourth dimensional! No other character has felt so realistic and so intriguing complex as this one. All writers should aspire to make their characters just like him!
The amount of thought put into this character's motivation must be admired. She says "Yuki" so many times she's practically a Pokemon. Her one trait is special and unique and she gets tons and tons of time away from everything else important. The backstory is so relatable and sympathetic that everyone will fall in love with her by the series end....and then die for not being Yuki. Every female character should have as much character as she does!
