5 - Perfection.
Not only were animation and plot fantastic, this show actually had me hanging during most of its eps. It either made me laugh myself to tears or cry for life and all the sadness of the world. These animes were absolutely perfect in execution and they even took it a notch higher by making me get the feels.
4.5 - The real 5.
This is the real 5 of the world of scores. They're perfect in execution, but the feels weren't quite there for me. No stress for the characters, no shaky teary eye, no "will die if I have to wait till next week to watch more". But, overall, animation and plot were top notch. ie: Mushishi. Amazing, but it won't make me feel.
Some are 4.5s and some are 4.7...4.8s..... but since I can't split them like that, there they are. All 4.5s.
4 - My Average unless plot sucks.
Pretty much that. My average score unless plot or art/design sucks. Then I'll probably start heading to the 3s.
3.5 - It lacked. Probably story, character development and such.
Despite the plot not being even close to amazing, I may score higher than deserved, from most people's perspectives. This is because I deeply and genuinely admire animators. So, unless the animation is hideous or I SERIOUSLY started getting annoyed by a character, storyline or hated the show itself, I might not go under 3.5.
3 - Animation may have started to lack.
The story was already borderline basic and it was topped with the animation being a bit too far from special. I didn't particularly hate anything so it didn't get lower than this, but.... yeah. May have wasted some time with this anime.
Hereon it's quite subjective even for me. Anything lower than 3, I either hated the characters, found the plot absurdly lame or just wanted to punch the screen out of hate for everything on it as I watched. Yeah, I'm watching you Special A.
2.5 - I definitely wasted my time. AKA, chances are I stopped watching somewhere along the first 3 eps, after enduring all I could, expecting it to somewhat un-lame itself.
2 - Not watching. Just not.
1.5 - Hated the damn thing. Why I even went past the 3rd ep? No idea. Probably wished it would get better. Maybe I just wanted to know how lame it could get, just so I could complain about how I don't understand wth Special A has more than 3 stars on this site.
1 - Hated the damn thing. Don't even remind me about it.
0.5 - Why the hell does this even exist?
