My ratings and preferences
I like unique anime that have fun/interesting characters and writing, the latter particularly in the philosophy department. In other words, I like anime that get me to think. Good animation, music and direction can also affect the overall experience to a large degree. When it comes to genres, the only ones I don't really care for are mecha, harem and ecchi. Robot fights usually don't interest me, and I have yet to see a case of fanservice and interesting writing combined.
You may find my ratings are generally low. That's mainly because of the way I use my ratings. Everything I put above 2 is what I would consider a good anime, and everything under 1.5 is anime I did not like. This means that all the anime I didn't like is split between two ratings, whereas there are 7 ratings for anime that I did like. I made it like this so that I can have more nuanced ways of saying "I like" rather than needing to waste my time choosing between multiple ratings for anime I don't like. It's the anime we like that matter, after all!
Keep in mind that my ratings are of course my personal opinions, and not in any way an attempt at being objective or telling anyone what is and isn't good
5 stars - Masterpiece. Could not have been better for what it is in any way. Not flawless, as nothing could ever be, but the flaws are easily excusable and insignificant. I have yet to discover an anime that I can personally consider for this rating.
4.5 stars - Life-changing. An anime with this rating is near the peak of how good anime could ever be in my eyes, and has distinct traits which left an everlasting impression, and in some cases, even affected the way I see life. Anime with this rating tend to have prominent 5/5 star qualities, but fall short in other aspects.
4 stars - Favorite. This anime is one of my absolute favorites, and I've spent a lot of time thinking about it even after completing it. In other words, it has a lot to offer even after it's over, and is truly unforgettable.
3.5 stars - Fantastic. An anime with this rating is one that I love and certainly sticks out from the crowd. It's without a doubt worth watching more than once.
3 stars - Great. Either has a great purpose, or something that makes it stick out and be memorable, but I wouldn't go as far as to say that I "love" it. Probably worth watching more than once. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind its genre.
2.5 stars - Good. I liked it. Definitely worth the watch.
2 stars - Decent. The positives outweigh the negatives for me, and it was probably worth the watch.
1.5 stars - Average. Watchable, but nothing special. Would still recommend to a hardcore fan of its genre.
1 star - Bad. Not my taste at all, barely watchable, and chances are it was not worth my time.
0.5 stars - Garbage. Most likely either very poorly executed, or with a complete lack of originality with nothing that stands out whatsoever. Was a complete waste of time.
