I rate anime/manga based on how much I enjoyed them ( most of the times ). I give 9 and 10 to those I find extremely interesting and re-watchable. Most of them would be either of the genres; Mystery/R.C/Shoujo-Ai/Yuri/School Life/S.O.L.. though, I honestly just watch whatever I find interesting, regardless of its genre. So I don't actually have a preferred genre like other people. I thoroughly read the synopsis of an anime before proceeding to watch so that I wouldn't regret wasting time on something I won't enjoy. 8 goes for great animation and enjoyable plots. 5-7 Means "okay". 4 below means totally MEH :/ Anime can sometimes get really cliche and I totally hate that. I also dislike the ones with totally unbelievable plot/powers.
