I am a 17 year old Anime Fan from Germany. I got into anime last year and have been addicted ever since. I would say I am neither a Casual nor an elitist but my ratings tend to be rather sharp and I rarely (if ever) give 10s. I am also crazy active on Mal so feel free to write me a Pm or leave a Comment regarding any of the series I have watched or any Manga I have read.
An all-time personal favorite that I ll revisit for years to come. This rating is something I only give to shows that I perceive as perfect so it's not something I give out lightly.
One my favorites but with a minor flaw that prevents it from being perfect. This is usually the highest rating any show can get from me (with very few exceptions).
=Very Good show
A series that I enjoyed from start to finish. It's positive aspects overshadow the majority of its problems. Still something I am likely to revisit. And everything rated 8 and above is a definite recommendation.
A good and still recommendable show. It has noticeable flaws but the positive aspects still overweigh. Overall it was a satisfying experience but nothing I would go out of my way to revisit.
=Above average Show
A decent show overall still enjoyable but it's flawed/boring moments are very noticeable. But it did have something like a very likable character, interesting setting or interesting plot twist that elevated it above the average show.
Something that I didn't dislike but also not something I enjoyed. Everything 5 and below is something that if I could tell my past self not to watch them, I would. Shows with this rating often just didn't appeal to me or they had an somewhat equal ammount of great and boring episodes which balanced eachother out.
An actively boring show with very few redeeming qualities. Often something I drop or don't watch the sequel of. Everything I rated 4 and below is something I only finish if it's a show that was recommended to me, is part of a franchise I like or a something that I enjoy laughing about.
=Very Bad Series
Very bad shows with at most 1 little detail that prevents me from giving it a lower rating. Also something I only finish if it's so bad that it makes me laugh otherwise I drop it immediately.
An entirely bad series with nothing I like about it. This is pretty much the lowest rating normal series can get unless they mange to make me mad.
=The show made me angry/disgusted me
A rating reserved for shows that just made me hate them, not necessarily the worst of the worst, but something that I dislike with a burning passion.
My Rating mostly comes down to my personal enjoyment but in a way that also includes Sound, Characters, Plot, Art etc because those factors impact my enjoyment depending on how good/bad they are executed.
