if i add you it's probably because i like how you rate anime and would like to see what you think about things when figuring out my opinion / checking if i should watch something.
Animation and music always come last to me scoring anime, they will add to the score if they enhance the storytelling and they can take away from it if it does the opposite. Keep in mind if I don't have a note beside the anime then my opinion could be drastically different on a rewatch.
10 - Very close to perfection. Something that has themes and characters that kept me coming back and thinking of them as time went on. Anime that holds a personal and meaningful place to my heart. I always find myself thinking about these shows and they have impacted my life in some way.
9 - Same as 10 but has something that takes away from it too much to be overlooked, such as important questions not being answered, or lack of an ending. 9's still have that personal meaning attached to the anime for me but I may be unclear if I hold it as an all time favorite.
8 - A great anime that didn't latch onto me in a meaningful way long after I finished the series. Very solid characters and an interesting well-paced plot that keeps up its quality the whole way through with little exception. An anime that maintains a constant quality experience from start to finish with no real inconsistency's.
7 - Excels at one point but not all, may have fantastic characters or themes but a lacking plot or vice versa. Disappoints in a few ways but in the end was a great experience from start to finish.
6 - Nothing excelling but everything being rather good, no huge faults or merits. Often a simple story done well.
5 - Doesn't do anything especially good or bad, acceptable believable characters and plot that makes sense well maintaining being watchable. Boring.
4 - Same as 5 but instead of being completely mediocre it has something lacking that makes it drop below expectations. AKA Unbelievable badly written characters or rushed pacing.
3 - Badly written characters and bad storytelling yet still has some good sides such as nice action or fun stylized characters. Anime with this score can fall under "it's so bad it's good".
2 - Almost completely worthless with one or two points that make it watchable like a really cool scene once in a while or well done completely superficial elements.
1 - No good points at all, complete trash. It's a real accomplishment on its own for a series to get here for how hard it is to be this useless.
