Other Sites I Use For Anime
How I rate
10 - Breathtaking: Wow, a show of this caliber is filled with so many outstanding moments and almost has no mistakes. A show like this rarely pops up and is a must see. Also, good luck trying to do anything else in real life. Ignoring family members, losing sleep, failing a test would be some of my personal examples.
9.5 - Spectacular: Take the 10 rating and add a few mistakes.
9 - Superb: A 9 indicates that it's on a whole different level than the average anime. It has a moderate amount of masterpiece moments that make this show highly entertaining. Although, I can honestly say that I’m disappointed with a lot of the 9's I had to rate. I think certain 9's should have been 10's, but its potential was held back by new content that didn’t belong. Anime Examples: Sword Art Online, Bleach, Naruto
8.5 - Excellent: This is when anime starts to get kind of addicting to watch. Not only does it bring a strong performance, but the anime also becomes beyond amazing. However, the amazing moments don’t occur enough. Regardless, you'll watch the anime all the way through, even if it’s long.
8 - Really Good: It's a solid anime, glad I watched it. I feel like an 8 isn't ground breaking, but it delivers.
7.5 - Good Job: It's above average and at this point I’m moderately entertained.
7 - Average: It's pretty good, but it's really nothing I haven’t seen before. I'll probably finish the first season and stop watching.
6.5 - Not bad: There are some good things here, but it’s in small increments.
6 - Alright: This is the middle road for anime. It’s not entertaining, but at the same time it’s not annoying. However, I’m looking for good anime, which is why I’ll be more than likely be dropping this around 3 episodes into the show.
5.5 - Lacking: If an anime goes below a 6, I’ll avoid watching it. As a whole, it's not enjoyable watching anymore. Recycled Material, Predictable, boring are usually the reasons.
5 - Dull: For every moment I’m entertained, there's a moment I’m annoyed. I'll probably finish the first episode and then drop the anime.
4.5 - Poor: Boring story, annoying characters, and out of date animation would be some of the reasons I'll probably make it half way through the episode when I decide to drop the anime.
4 - Bad: There are a few good elements about it, but it’s pretty quickly forgotten with how many mistakes it has. I really enjoy seeing anime try new things, but a 4 will usually happen when the show try's to mix certain elements together that just weren't meant to be. It would be like putting pickle juice on waffles.
3.5 - Really Bad: Unfortunately, some anime that was popular fell into this category for me. I watched these shows all the way thru and it never got any better after the bad start, which was so disappointing to me. Anime Examples: Wolf's Rain, Monster, and Moribito.
3 - Terrible: Anything good about this anime is buried under loads of bad.
2.5 - Painful: It’s mentally painful for me to watch and brings stress to my life.
2 - Tormented: It's so freaking annoying that I’ll be surprised if I don’t drop the anime after just a couple minutes.
1.5 - Torture: Just about every piece of content is at its lowest point. After I turn this off, I sit there wondering WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!
1 - Unbearable: A kid screaming in my ear, the screeching of a chalkboard, and the shattering of my $150 monitor are some of the similar emotions I'll be experiencing while I watch an anime that goes this low on the list. This show just drives me insane and that’s exactly why I'll probably turn this off within the first 30 seconds.
