People always give a positive review. It sickens me. The show has to be really, REALLY, bad to get anything other than 5 stars.

My answer is that feels wrong to rate shows you didn't watch.

I didn't really like e.g. Sword Art Online, so I dropped it early on. That's not enough to give a fair review, but I'm not going to subject myself to something I'll probably hate just for the sake of a fair review. I didn't give it a negative review--which I probably would have if I finished it--because hey, how much do I really know about it? I'm not really the target demographic anyway, so it's best if they review it. It isn't always the best attitude for accurate ratings, I'll admit.

On top of that, shows I reject out of hand without so much as looking at an episode, I will also not rate. This in itself heavily skews the average.

"Sword Art Online/Attack on Titans/Fairy Tail is the best anime ever, must watch! Before you die" sort of commentaries.


I definitely feel you on the SAO and AoT animes, people tend to ignore half of SAO, because they're so obsessed with what the first half of the first season did. Though I have to disagree with Fairy Tail. If you pretty much ignore the first few episodes of Fairy Tail, the show gets progressively better. I mean it has over 200 episodes...so a show with that much investment, can't be -that- horrible, can it? People must obviously like watching it, if it's gone on for so long. I could be biased though.

I honestly prefer MAL. They have a fair share of bad reviews for most shows.

There no hope for season 2. Ending was original.

I really don't pay attention to the reviews. If it seems interesting and I wanna watch it....well I'm gonna watch it.

The only time I'll notice the reviews is if I click on a series I know nothing about and see it has like, one star. I still never actually read them though.

If the description itself of the series is too vague for my liking, I might click on that review button to see what others have to say.

Or in a more recent situation, I wanted to maybe start into the Monogatari series, and the reviews instead helped me figure out the relative order to watch them in. lol
