Anime Rating System...

OK, I mentioned the anime rating system I use which was developed by a friend and revised by me to include equivilent Anime News Network ratings. Here is is...

Z-scale for rating anime

I will here place the numbers and reasoning from Z for Z’s rating scale (the Z-scale!) and where the ANN ratings correspond (in bold; note: ANN ratings fall between the corresponding number range). Note that it goes from 0-10 vice 1-10 so that 5 will be the absolute average.

0 – Obviously an absolutely terrible abortion of an anime.
1 - Horrible anime in almost every way.
2 – Just plain bad. Boring, horrible story, ugly animation.
3 – Bad. An anime you would wish to skip.
4 – Disliked. Not all that bad, but it had more things to dislike about it than it had things to like.
5 – Neutral; didn’t like or dislike it.
6 – Not bad. More things found to be enjoyable than not.
7 – Good anime. Interesting during most of the anime and you are happy that you watched it.
8 – A pretty good anime. It was enjoyable in pretty much every way.
9 – Great anime. It kept you excited the entire time, and you loved it.
10 – Absolutely amazing and pretty much flawless. It was enjoyable in every way possible.

Credits obviously go to Z. I will hotlink this scale to the side panel for when it drops off the front page here.

I'll start something new (well it's not really new because I tried this before) by doing short reviews of anime that I've finished watching. I'll probably post an explaination of the rating system I use in a later post...

So the first one I will do is Kampher - this anime was basically a no holds barred fanservice joyride. A guy wakes up to find a strange talking stuffed animal with it's intestines hanging out in his room and the fact that he has changed into a girl! The animal explains that he has been chosen to be a Kampher; a warrior who has to fight other Kamphers. Unfortunately for him, Kamphers can only be female. The majority of the anime is basically harem stuff and battles while the girls try to fathom the true purpose of Kamphers. The last episode was an extra semi-Christmas special where the dolls switch places with the girls and learn what it's like to be alive.

Pros: The story was really pretty interesting and the fanservice wasn't the in-your-face type like you find in shows like Queen's Blade.

Cons: The last few episodes were just lame and the story didn't end well. The extra ep was just so much fluff...

I'm rating this a 6.5 on the Z-scale (just what the Z-scale is will come later)

Now go watch more anime!
