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.
NOT REALLY GOOD
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.
