I’m just a guy who watches anime very inconsistently because of my plamo-building hobby and schoolwork. My favorite genre is mecha. Also a longtime Transformers fan.
WHAT MY RATINGS MEAN (I don't count animation, art, and sound design as points, since looks can only get you so far. I also don't give specials ratings as I just watch them for fun without paying attention to the quality.):
10 = Masterpiece; a must watch for everyone regardless of if you like the genre or not
9 = Amazing; minor flaws; if you like the genre you will definitely enjoy this
8 = Great; has some flaws but an enjoyable ride alltogether
7 = Good; enjoyable, but not for everyone
6 = Average; has major problems; but I still kinda enjoyed it
(I hope I don't have to use any of the ratings below)
5 = Mediocre; Meh; there are parts where it can legitimately be bad/terrible.
4 = Bad; Self-explanatory; not very enjoyable
3 = Terrible; only has a few good points and I wouldn't recommend you watch it
2 = Appalling; the show is a huge letdown and I didn't enjoy it at all
1 = Unforgivable; I want to unsee this show
