How I use my ratings:
0: Awful/I forgot to rate it -_-
2: Below average
2.5: Slightly below average
3: Average (shows that are awesome in one half and boring/bad in another half often get this score)
I used to be very exacting when I made my ratings. Then I eventually ran out of universally praised anime, the "classics" i guess. I had to lower my standards significantly since then, or I probably wouldn't be able to enjoy anime anymore. So now I just rate with my gut intuition.
Interests (aside from Anime): Current events, History, Podcasts and Videogames
