The Flawed Rating System
Posted 3/29/10
First off,

The star rating system is flawed in so many ways. Foremost, is that fanboys of any anime are given the freedom to spam, yes spam, a constant 5 star rating on every episode they watch of whatever anime they're infatuated with. Most especially Naruto, the fanboy base is so biased in their ratings of every episode that ZERO constructive criticism can ever be seen.

So I propose that a universal multiple choice questionnaire be tied in with the star rating system so that a REAL rating for any anime can be achieved. Individual star ratings for each aspect (dialog, art, music, immersion, satisfaction etc) should be used to generate an averaged rating of all the viewer rating submissions.

As it is right now, it is f'ing useless but that's not to say that it couldn't be improved and to the point that it could foster the potential to becoming an invaluable resource for the creators to refer to when looking to find viable feedback on their animes and the individual episodes... at least within the non-japanese viewer audience.
