While I absolutely love SZS, I think it's excellence lies more in how I can enjoy it after
watching it. When watching the anime itself it was more on a 8/10 level, yet I'm still a large fan of the series.

Yeah, I hate it too. Months after watching it you look at MAL and see 'huh? that show has a 9/10? WHY!?'. That's why I never touch any of the scores EXCEPT for the 10/10's. Those are special.
However, I personally have often less emotional reactions to a show than others. So I'm less prone to either love or hate something; I tend to be closer in the middle with everything. As a result I have a fairly even distribution in the scores that I give to shows, in contrary to many others. Like you can see in the ratings for a lot of shows on any site similar to MAL.Edited by Tilpo - 11/10/12 at 4:00pm
