MyAnimeList is a very popular site not only to get Anime and Manga news but also to read reviews and receive recommendations for anime and manga you may be interested in. There is also a section where you can look at the top anime in terms of score or popularity. I have visited this site on multiple occasions and leave shocked at some of the scores anime receive. I always tell myself that you shouldn't take the score seriously, but there is always something in the back of my mind rather disgusted at the average score some of these anime get. Basically the point of this topic is:

What anime score are you most disgusted by?

I have multiples but i will pick Nisemonogatari randomly.

Thing is, we all have different tastes, so I'm never shocked if I see an anime get scored highly that I personally didn't like, and vice versa. As for an anime score that I'm most disgusted with... I guess I'll have to go with Gintama (though I don't really feel disgusted with it - it's more like I could never get into it):

Personally, I do find MAL's scoring system pretty helpful, I actually do tend to agree, or rather, like a lot of the animes that are scored pretty high.

HA.
MAL ratings are such a joke, when Free! was announced butthurt kids on there were giving it a 1 and 'dropping' it before it even aired.
Hilarious.

Though no offence to Nise it does not deserve that score, personally my least favorite part of the Monogatari series.

I don't take MAL scores seriously, nor will I ever. I think sales figures paint a more accurate representation of how well an anime is perceived towards a general audience.

let's just say there are reasons I pay no attention to reviews/scores.

It's much more reliable than most humans in here,
and AnimeKami, that's for sure.




This though.
It deserves a 7 at most.

+1

majority of MAL's scores is subjective, i know some that prefer to use ANN to check on certain animes.

a large sample is not necessarily a good sample

SNK for me. I mean I like the show, but number 10 of all time in highest rated anime? At least rank the anime once it is all done.

I understand what you mean when an anime hate for no reason other than the fact that people just like to bash on it, but with MAL the only way your vote counts is if you've said that you've seen at least 1/5 of the anime series. If not then they don't weigh it in so if people drop it or whatever the score probably won't change.

Haha, yeah, the characters were too overly eccentric for me, that when serious stuff happened, I couldn't take it seriously, lol. And I tried. I struggled thru the first 11 eps before I threw in the towel. I'm sure it gets better the longer the series goes, but if the characters still act as goofy as I suspect they probably do, I already know I won't be able to take the drama seriously, lol.

Pretty much this.

I never let an overall rating of an audience influence how I rate my shows. That being said...some of the scores on MAL are a bit strange. Some I agree with though, others I don't but that's just me and my subjective opinion~

You've seen only 11 episodes and haven't really been introduced to anything serious at all.
Gintama is very good with the serious parts as well.

Plus when you see a goofy character like Gintoki turn into this crazy epic badass,
that's where the goosebumps start happening.

Hmm, well I do remember in one of the video comments for one of the eps that someone was planning on building a time machine so that he could go to the future and finish watching the series. I suspect he finished it and shared the time machine with 57,951 users.
