If you're here for the first time you might want to go to the last page and look at the current stats

But you're also welcome to work through the pages to see how shows have fared from 21st Sep to date.

If you have any questions about the stats or some advice about what I could do better/differently feel free to post a comment.

Be warned though, suggesting I shift from MAL to another source of data will get short shrift

You can however flame me over the colours and layout I've used in my graphs, you won't be the first


Original Post:

Ever wondered ""Am I a 'lone wolf' or do I 'run with the pack' "

Nope me neither

But I sure find it interesting to see how others view and rate the stuff I like (or dislike).

Here's how the 2018 shows were faring last Friday, September 21st (we'll see what's changed tomorrow)



Disclaimer - I only go as far as the top 1000 so if a show doesn't make the cut it's not on the list.

Ranking the shows by Members on MAL is deceptive as totals include those who have not watched the shows.

For 2017, ranking based on people who are Watching or have Completed AoT2 and BNHA2:

About 44,000 more people have watched BNHA2 than AoT2.

Over 130,000 people say they Plan to Watch AoT2 but haven't yet. However, their intention is included in the ranking despite what their actual rating may eventually be.

Yep I'm well aware of those and other "anomalies"

Some future work I have planned will be to pull apart this data, but that's a little more complex than screen scraping the bulk stats.

You should have went with "A MAL-formed Opinion", but who knew MAL's ratings, like all modern rating systems, are based on guesswork and outright lies. No one could know that.

That's a bit tortuous isn't it

There's no guesswork, you have to select your show and status manually, the methodology may be flawed but the intent is fine, and the main thing about MAL is, people actually bother to put their data out there.

The other issue is people intentionally spamming and trolling the system with false data. All in all it is a flawed system, but we really are lack for a better one at the moment so we just have to make do with it.

Great Post! - Very Interesting Numbers.

Thing I hate bout stuff like this is all the fake pretenders. It's like these people who give reviews without ever seeing the movie. So damn annoying I know some idiots in real life who this bs.

That's something that really doesn't work on MAL

If you get a review in early with enough trigger points you're likely to get enough up-votes for that review to stay at the top of the lists for the whole run of the show.

For sure it only takes 3 or so episodes to get if a show suits your personal likes but a review needs to at least come towards the end.

In case you were wondering.

These spacer comments are so I can get the headline stats at the top of each page.
