Rotten Sushi (A pun on "Rotten Tomatoes", Crunchyroll is a type of Sushi, gettit?) is officially fully functional.

Originally, I merely wanted to have a system that would associate ratings with each show in a list format, rather than to have to go to each individual show page to see how it was rated. Also, I'm not a big fan of the "star" system. For some people, a "4" is very high praise on their personal scale, while others will easily give out a "5" just because they are naturally exuberant. This makes for completely arbitrary ranking numbers calculated down to several decimal places of meaninglesness (in my own opinion, of course).

So to try and remove the sense of a numerical value, I came up with these distinctions. Note that these are not the same as RT, which only has binary good/bad as choices...

  • Recommended and Re-watchable. This rating is for whether you liked a show enough to watch it more than once.

  • Worth a watch. This means that you don't regret the time you spent watching it. It was enjoyable enough that you would still tell other people to watch, but in all likelihood, you don't think you need to see it again.

  • Meh. This is kind of a catch-all. Rate something a "Meh" if it is something you would tell someone to watch if they had nothing else to watch and just wanted to relieve their boredom.


  • That's it. Don't rate a show if you hated it. Over time, as the numbers fill in, new viewers will have the option to view the poll results if they want to be influenced, or to leave the results closed and form their own opinions before voting themselves. Popular shows will have many more votes than unpopular ones, so having a negative choice isn't really necessary.

    There is a CR poll object associated with each show. The same poll stays with the show no matter where it appears on all the hundreds of pages I have created, so you can only rate a given show once. The more people who participate and actually rate a show here, the better.

    Bumping to get the forum to show a count, because apparently initial thread posts are counted as "zero".

    Edit: Here is something interesting I just realized.

    If you consistently submit poll votes for the shows you have watched/completed, this project can serve as a "Watched Series" history for you here on CR, as opposed to the episodal history that the site provides. Any of the pages you visit here will have your poll vote open on it (for just you). If you have not watched/rated a show, it will show you a "Vote" button.

    That is a kind of nifty way to use it--but is a little limited in that if you watched a show, but liked it so little that you wouldn't even give it a "Meh" rating, it wouldn't be reliable as a "watched" indication.

    I'm really enjoying coming here and doing the polls and seeing how I compare to others. I expect I'll keep coming back!

    Not yet

    Would you consider spaceflight to be included (/voices-of-a-distant-star)? Or just atmospheric flight shows like:
    /the-princess-and-the-pilot
    /the-pilots-love-song
    /the-place-promised-in-our-early-days

    Offhand, I can't think of any others on CR right now, but the next time I go through the list I'll try to keep it in mind.

    I know it's a tricky question, especially since many space shows have both air and space craft, not to mention mecha. But, to make it easier to separate the two, I think aircraft should be its own category.

    True, there aren't many on CR now, especially since some shows have expired. Would Shirobako count? They were making an anime about flying in the second part of the show.

    I'll add it in there. I prefer to be over-inclusive to the point where you might wonder why some shows are tagged the way they are, than to miss out on including something.

    That's an odd thing... I never type that text in manually, always use copy/paste when I collect them, so it must have changed from when I first started gathering data. But, it'll be fixed in a month or so when I add the current season's new shows into (what will be) over 900 pages by then..

    Thanks.
