A very subjective perfect score
This anime has many, many flaws.
But as a musician no anime, tv series or even film has ever portrayed playing in a band as this anime did. I love how real it feels and the struggles the characters face. Obviously there's some spicy stuff added which would never happen in real life, but at its core it stays true to the hard times one has trying to break through as a band.
You can see the genuine love for music the people behind this anime in the anime. From the knock-off band shirts, to amazing guitars being shown. The moments that pay respect to the underappreciated members of most bands (the rhythm section) are something that I love dearly as a bassist myself.
Again objectively it could be 6 or 7 at best. But because it feels like the story is tailored for me personally and I see the love and effort put into it by its creators I have to give my favourite anime a perfect score.
