I'm clerikal, and I like anime a little bit. I've been watching anime on and off for most of my life, but only really started diving in deep in the Fall 2017 season. I'm working hard to catch up on my ever increasing backlog, and am always looking for show recommendations. Feel free to add me so we can compare lists and you can tell me how wrong my ratings are.
I try to update as often as possible, but my AniList is more up to date
1st: Spirited Away
300th: Hibike! Euphonium
400th: Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei
10 - Perfect: One of my all-time favorites. I see no flaws with these shows and will defend them. Highly recommend that everyone watches these.
9 - Amazing: Only slightly below a 10. A show that I thoroughly enjoyed, but only just fell short of an all-time favorite.
8 - Great: A show that I probably binged or was impatiently looking forward to each week. I disagree with the problems people see with the show, but I'm not going to fight over it.
7 - Good: I know the show has flaws, but I enjoyed the ride. A lot of guilty pleasure shows probably fall into here.
6 - Above Average: Not good enough for a 7, but I enjoyed watching the show and didn't drop it. As the same with a 5, I might have fallen behind during airing, but still finished it eventually.
5 - Average: The baseline where I start my ratings. A show that I didn't drop and didn't mind watching, but also might have fallen a few episodes behind during airing or put on hold before finishing it.
4 - Bad: I could see why some people like this show, but it's just not for me. I might have finished it because of a group watch or a bad show guilty pleasure watch.
3 - Horrible: Shows down here had some real problems. Animation, major story issues, no redeeming characters, poor OST. A show here has one or two of these problems, but not more than three.
2 - Garbage: Shows with three or more of the above stated issues. Animation, major story issues, no redeeming characters, poor OST. I probably finished it because I felt I was too far into the airing to drop.
1 - Appalling: An offensive show (in terms of how bad it is). I probably watched (and finished) a show at this level because a friend insisted on it. It's a miracle I didn't drop a show and it was still rated this low.
