Check here.


Usually whenever I come across a new anim00 on the web, I use sites like
MAL, ANN and Anime-Planet to see if it's good or not.

I think most of the time anime rated 8.0 or higher in MAL end up being decent/great.
This is based on experience, y'all.

So is your fave watchable or not according to MAL?
Does it have a MAL score of 8.0 or up?

(Post your fave and its score)

Mine:

1. One Piece - 8.64 YES
2. Gintama - 9.10 YES
3. Clannad: After Story - 9.15 YES
4. Major - 8.49 YES
5. Monster - 8.76 YES
6. Berserk - 8.32 YES
7. FMA: Brotherhood - 9.21 YES

Bakemonogatari 8.48
Black Lagoon 8.32
Fate/Zero 2nd Season 8.89
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 8.46
Nijuu Mensou no Musume 7.69 (fools!)
Steins;Gate 9.17
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann 8.88
Baccano 8.70
Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita 8.05
Michiko to Hatchin 7.90


So sad... I have too many favourites, so not going to expand more than that on the list. It's getting harder and harder to have a "top 10" list. Though Ghost in the Shell, TTGL, Steins;Gate and ... ah fuck it, I can't do it.

I wouldn't trust MAL's ratings. Everyone has their own personal tastes, so you would be cheating yourself not to watch a show just because MAL gives it a low rating. I think people already know the type of anime that they like. I usually at least watch the first episode of a show even if it is rated low to give it a fair chance!

I agree. Everyone interprets an anime and its story differently. Some love One Piece while I think it's total garbage, it's just the matter of the vast majority. If you want to experience anime to its fullest just pick a series from a list and watch it. Whether it appeals to you or not shouldn't be decided by a rating. It's also a way to find out your hidden tastes. You may not like romance but a particular anime can present it in a way you find interesting. It's a weird and wonderful thing really.

Letting some anonymous poll pick the shows you like for you, strikes me as rather... mindless.

2. Bakemonogatari - 8.48
3. Toradora! - 8.57
4. Clannad: After Story - 9.15
5. ef - a tale of memories - 8.38
6. Chihayafuru - 8.43
7. Hayate no Gotoku!! (S02) - 8.19
8. Ga-Rei-Zero - 8.02
9. The Tatami Galaxy - 8.56
10. The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya - 9.03

So yeah, all my top ten are above 8 on MAL. But it's important to note that this doesn't mean that every anime rated above 8 on MAL is guaranteed to be a favourite. Let's have a look at my bottom four:

1. Kurozuka - 7.21
2. Xam'd: Lost Memories - 8.01
3. Pokémon Black & White - 7.40
4. Lucky Star - 8.18

Half of those have scores above 8. So although my standout shows all score above 8, so do some real stinkers.
