As y'all know I watch a grip of anime, so over the years I've decided to create a standardized rating system I can use to help me grade anime as fairly as possible.
10 Star Rating System:
L - Looks (2 Stars)
I - Integrity (4 Stars)
M - Memorability (2 Stars)
E - Ending (2 Stars)
There are a couple of reasons why I use this template. I'll break it down for'ya.
1.) Looks (Quality).
This grades the animation quality. Was it asthetic or visually appealing? Were the character models original or tasteful? Is it watchable? (2 star value)
2.) Integrity (Continuity).
This is based on multiple areas of the anime. First is the animation integrity. This is different from looks. It grades the consistency of the animation quality (ie: how you can see a disparity in the animation quality of Bleach episodes). Next it measures the plot integrity. This is based on how well the anime adheres to the main conflict or idea. Finally is the character integrity. This is based on how well the characters were developed and whether or not the characters act in accordance to their personalities. (4 star value)
3.) Memorability (Originality).
This is a qualitative measurement on how much you enjoyed the anime. Was it enjoyable to watch? Was it original? Does it stand out from the competition? Would you recommend it? (2 star value)
4.) Ending (Closure/Last Impressions).
Did the anime accomplish what it set out to accomplish? Was there some type of closure or tragedy? Were the loose ends tied? Was the main conflict resolved or explained? Was it rushed? Was it too slow? (2 star value)
By using this structure, it's easier to make grading animes (which is in essence is subjective) a less biased and more fair evaluation.
Hopefully this helps you understand how I see anime, and how this can be used as a tool to identify key aspects when attempting to grade an anime as accurately as possible.
