Guess this thread'll be revived for a bit.
Regardless, to answer the question, people who watch anime on CR aren't generally critics. They CAN be critical but why bother? Anime is meant to be enjoyed. There's no reason to sit down and watch a series only to point out it's flaws and why it sucks. That's not fun (for most). Also I wouldn't bother wasting time writing a review for a series I only thought was average. I'll watch it then forget it and move on to something else that interests me.
I can counter this thread's question with another question: why bother caring? Is it INCONCEIVABLE that people have an opinion that differs from yours? It shouldn't matter what people think of a series. If you like it you like it and if you don't you don't.

Being honest 80% of anime on this website is what I would consider 2 star level. Yet almost every show is sitting at 4.5 or higher in terms of rating. Why is there such a lack of negative reviews?


Consider the possibility that you might like a certain genre of anime, but have been watching stuff that you don't like. For example, maybe you like anime like "Love Live," but hate anime like "Attack on Titan."

EDIT:

*FACE PALM*

I fell for another necro'd thread....

I am honestly surprised any people liked Himegoto. The Student Council were piece of shits that should have been in jail after trying getting off as voyeur to Hime's rape.

I really have to question the state of mind one has to watch in order to think Himegoto is anywhere near decent.

I guess it's just that a lot of people worked hard to make most anime shows, so I don't usually give them very negative reviews.

Or maybe that a show that doesn't do it for me might be amazing to someone else.

When I rate/review, I do it based on my feelings for the anime not based on scientific critique...

5 stars - it's something worth owning as I know I'll watch it again and again and again.
4.5 stars - Pretty much the same although I acknowledge I wouldn't watch it as much as a 5 star.
4 stars - I wouldn't buy but would stream-watch more than once.
3.5 stars - Just a little above average, I might or might not consider marathoning it again sometime.
3 stars - Meh. It was okay, but not really worth going out of my way to see again. I'll watch it again only if nothing else better is on or enough time has passed for me to forget it.
2.5 stars - borderline passable. Don't see myself ever watching it again but admit it could have little bits of enjoyment.
2 stars - One watch is more than enough. Won't be watching it again.
1.5 stars - What the hell was that I just watched? Ick. What were they thinking?
1 star - You have just failed the 3 episode view test. You have been eliminated!

Given this, you will most likely see me give a higher score to something like Konosuba rather than Your Lie in April or Golden Times.

Because some people are not self-proclaimed anime critics trying to look superior on the Internet and they like watching shows based on their entertainment value.

Rating based on entertainment value would be great if everyone had the same taste in entertainment...

At least say why you found it entertaining, plz.

Everyone has their own opinions. I like a lot of shows that people (and my friends) don't like and vice versa.

Let me put it like this:

The show Eromanga Sensei exists but I'm not going to watch it because I have a good feeling that I won't like it nor will it be a glorious trainwreck I can derive sadistic pleasure from. So I am not going to watch it. Nor will I review it.

You're surely not criticising my holy grail of anime, are you?
