Thought I should add a reference to help me rate anime.
10 - Incredible. Fly through episodes, wanting to watch the next straight away. Felt a lot of emotion when watching, good ending. I will know when I give a 10.
9 - Same as above except has some glaring flaws that I can't ignore. Still enjoyed it immensely, but something obvious could've been changed about. Simple slice of life/comedy will usually be capped here, because lack of epic emotional moments. May have been masterpiece material the whole way but the ending wasn't satisfying. Shows with shit/lazy animation will also be capped here.
8 - Very good, enjoyed it, may have been addictive but actually technically poor, not enough character development. Might have been average in everything except one aspect where I liked alot. May have been brilliant until something happened in the plot that totally turned me off, maybe something so bad that I had to drop it.
7 - Good, but lazy animation. Studio didn't put much effort in, but something about it kept me watching. Or okay animation but lacking in depth. Something about it was enough to keep me watching to the end, or maybe I dropped it because of limited time.
1-6 - Dropped, probably didn't bother rating. Fundamental concepts I don't agree with, totally bad animation, no hook.
