hey, i'm young98, and i live in OC, CA. i love to watch anime, more than i like to read mangas, but i read mangas if the anime was really good, and if the manga isn't too long, i like almost any type, the only type that i'll avoid is hentai or shōnen-ai (guy-guy love) anime, i'm a night owl, so you might catch me online at obscure hours of the night
10- This is like the perfect anime, maybe not in all aspects, but at least in what it tried to accomplish, and what its genre was. I wouldn't give a 10 to an action anime that had the best comedy I've ever seen, but if it was a comedy, I would. But like all animes, it needs a good story line that moves at an appropriate pace, good character development, good animation throughout, no BAD fillers (cuz some fillers are funny) 9- This anime is nearly perfect, but had one or two things that bugged me, or I noticed weren't up to par with what I thought the anime could bring. Something like sketchy animation, bad filler episodes, character development not at full potential...stuff like that. But otherwise, some of the best of the best. 8- This is a very good anime, but there is something that is wrong about this anime, that occurs for most or all of the series/movie. This could be bad animation/character design, unoriginal/bad story, little/no character development. Truly, this isn't too much different from a 7, but I simply enjoyed it more. 7- This like an 8, but I just didn't enjoy it as much as an 8 6- This is a decent anime that had quite a few flaws. One of the biggest things that can get an anime into this category for me is the dependence on fan service. I don't hate or love fanservice, but if it's appropriate, it's okay. But if it is one of the driving forces of the show, it will most likely end here. There are other reasons, but I can't think of any now. 5- This anime barely made the cut. It's one of those animes I would not buy the DVDs unless they were on sale at 75% off, and I had enough change in my car at the time. Many many flaws like too much fan service, no real plot, shallow characters, predictable story, you know, basic symptoms of mediocre anime. 4-1- I have yet to assign an anime a grade in this range, because I make sure to research the anime I watch a little bit to make sure I'm not stuck with a dud. But if in the off chance that I happen to watch something this bad, I would guess it would be because there was bad animation, bad character design, bad voice acting, no plot/story, using fan service as a driving force, etc. And I'm thinking that the only difference from 4 to 1, is to the degree which I feel I have been traumatized, 1 being the most.
