MAL is an easy way to see wincest though. I watch wincest anime because it's rated low there because MUH THEY'RE SIBLING IT'S DISGUSTING YOU KNOW. Though it's a bit disappointed that both NBRshit and BRshit get the same rate, so sometimes I get NBRshit anime.

MAL only good for that, and for tracking sales, and for backlogging.

Jacob Rivera

This 2 are accurate, if you didn't like it from the start but wanted to continue try it until episode 3 and if still you didn't like it, drop it altogether. The anime is one of the rare ones wherein if you didn't like it from very first episode just drop it. Monogatari is more of an acquired taste than a "3 episode rule" anime.

Adrian White

IMO bake was a quite different show than we have today. OP, keep going through it, it picks up in Nise when best girl shows up selling curses. After that, monogatari is way better. Season two has best arc with best girl.

Caleb Phillips
Caleb Phillips

I don't use MAL personally, but some of the highest rated anime on those sites tend to be popular shounen. There are more people who casually watch anime than there are who are serious about the medium and can rate shows with a broader perspective. They are scared and turned off by the avant garde and love the typical. Thus, ratings can be considered somewhat skewed.

However, if they support your own opinion of a show, then they're of course 100% accurate.

Jason Butler

Something being popular does not correlate to it's quality at all. Do you believe Harry Potter is the pinnacle of literature? Besides MAL is full of more cancer than most anime communities.

Ian Allen

Popularity DOES correlate to quality. Correlate - not guarantee.

Note that quality series ARE popular, too. All of the 'best' anime is massively popular, it just doesn't have the kind of sales low brow stuff does. Or maybe it even does.

In any case, we're discussing subjective ratings, not popularity.

MAL ratings are always massively skewed for popular & unpopular shows with westerners. Just about anything averaging a 9+ on MAL could be massively overrated in your own opinion.
Ratings and reviews on MAL are different, don't look at the score then say one autist explained his points so there for everything is justified, hundreds make reviews, tens of thousands click a button to rate and be done with it. A lot of reviews there also falls into the modern rating dilemma where 7= shit 8 = good 8.5= very good 9 = great 10 = amazing.

It's only merit is tracking things in your backlog and being a repository for looking up seiyuu and other staff history outside of wikipedia IMO. Also like that user said being able to add to the average score for a show before it's even finished airing is bullshit and skews the rating even further because tons of anime have great starts and then fall into being just mediocre - average.

Why did you shoehorn 'western' into your argument? How is that relevant at all?

In any case, the ratings aren't perfect, but to make the argument that they don't at all correlate to quality is completely asinine. Of course they do, in aggregate. We don't know the strength of the correlation, but I suspect it's stronger than "asshole on /a/'s opinions" - even substantially so.

Furthermore, that the scale is somewhat universal as you pointed out is actually good, even if it is in practiced normalized to 7 rather than 5.

Nathan Kelly

here's what i do: start with some anime you already know are good, then look at some of the reviews on MAL. click on the users with solid reviews and see what anime they've seen or added recently. i almost always find something good that Sup Forums never talks about

for example, i started watching inou-battle wa nichijou, which is a comfy SoL with chuuni antics, and in all my years on Sup Forums i dont think i've ever seen a single thread for it

No. The first couple episodes were a struggle in and of themselves to get through but held some promise of something more involving. Everything beyond that is pretty much intolerable unless you're one of those new age weaboos that loves them some unconventional convoluted storytelling and characters just bantering at each other while some occasional fanservice and text flashes across the screen. It's practically the franchise that ended the very idea of decent late night TV anime as we know it since now there's tons of shitty LN's with annoying as fuck characters and prattling pretentious dialogue just flooding the market. Now everyone just chases after the fanatical demographics like Monogatari's.

David Lee

At the end of the day this fandom is all about the circlejerk and trying to fit in with what's cool.

MAL along with Crunchyroll is like the chief example of why the anime fanbase is absolutely retarded and as hopeless as the medium they prop up right now. Bunch of braindead idiots who can't even think a single unique thought or opinion for themselves running around shouting hype this hype that and just making the exact same comments over and over again in threads by dozen. Basically take everything that's shit about Sup Forums, double it and remove any of the potential upsides, though again really practically the same thing nowadays once you strip away the bullshit and pretense. I'm just waiting for Sup Forums to become entirely like MAL in ultra shitty commercialized seasonal anime taste and commentary style so that I can quit here too. I'd say it's like 3/4 of the way there already. Should be totally converted by the end of this year just in time for anime to really go to complete and utter hopeless shitty mobage commercials, fujobait and even more samey popular wish fulfillment LN adaptations for 2017. You know instead of the mostly hopeless state it's in now with that one tolerable real show nobody watches because it doesn't contain cliche waifus and possibly Aniplex hype marketing to tell the community what to watch/like state that it's in right now.

Seriously though I've never seen the anime scene nor it's community look as hopelessly bleak as it does right now to the point where it's just like why even bother much. Not even back in 2009 when the global economy all but crashed, production dropped off and it looked like the industry could even potentially have some major bankruptcies. At the very least the community wasn't complete hot garbage then like it is now when almost nothing good was coming out for a couple years. Right now it's like almost nothing good has come out in nearly 3 and looks to continue that way at least on broadcast TV.

Really though I'm not even entirely convinced it's the same medium I got interested in in years past, I mean yeah the aesthetics are similar but the tone and overall message has changed for the excessively commercial and pointless.

The one key remaining difference between Sup Forums and MAL is that MAL is an exceedingly hype based community. Everything from ratings to reviews to commentary and it's frequency revolves around what is said to have the most hype currently whereas Sup Forums will just claim to like or hate anything on a whim. Same end result of ridiculous ways of reaching conclusions about shows, different methods of getting there where MAL has literally one path to follow and Sup Forums is just anything goes to fulfill the narrative necessary for the thread and what the OP is trying to do with it.

It's not a false dichotomy when it applies. I can only repeat that you should go elsewhere if you want deep discussion about your mature shows. Leave Sup Forums to people who aren't retards but aware of the nature of what they're watching.

Even if that's possible for you - why do we care? We don't. Fuck off with your dumb shitposting and obsession - we're not interested in seeing through the prism of your mental illness.

I never tried to claim I'm fully there mentally (I'm not as conflicted as I used to be since I barely care about anime anymore much like the rest of Sup Forums which is probably why I'm even still here) but I don't see how it's possible to reach any other conclusion at this point when all you have to do is look around you at the community and the kind of shit that keeps getting announced to see it. It's just undeniable if you're capable of seeing it, which IMO still not a lot of people are (even if I think more people are slowly waking up to the reality I saw as far back as 2014) because they're entirely caught up in their own bullshit and constructed narratives surrounding things and have yet to look up at reality in a while. Right now there seem to be two camps, ones that have accepted things are hopeless and moved on from the community and anime a while ago and thus no are longer able to make purposeful commentary and make things at least tolerable (the one I'm guaranteed to join by years end if not any day now) and those that just don't give a fucking shit and stick around to shitpost like Sup Forums, to be their when the hype goes down like the MAL community or to laugh at the state of things like me. The one thing they all have in common is that they don't really seem to enjoy anime much anymore.

Right now I guess I'm mostly still here to see if anything remotely interesting happens in 2016 and to laugh at the people that still haven't realized what's going on with this medium but seem to be slowly coming around to in the face of overwhelming supporting evidence. I want to see how far that goes, how much deeper the hole gets and how big a ball of resentment gets built up towards this now shit medium before years end.

Brayden Clark
Brayden Clark

A lot of reviews there also falls into the modern rating dilemma where 7= shit 8 = good 8.5= very good 9 = great 10 = amazing.
A much greater problem I see is that due to the fact that MAL ties into a community, a review is also going to serve as a vehicle of self-portrayal for the reviewer. i.e. you'll rarely see someone positively review a show focussing on ecchi/fanservice, even if the show does that in a very good manner - in a sense of accomplishing its goals. In most cases people would dismiss something that would be regarded morally questionable by mainstream society and rate it more lowly than it deserves. On the other hand if a show has a positive reputation, if it is highly regarded by people who hold authority within the community, then the show is going to gather much more positive reviews since people would use their rating as a badge of presenting themselves as 'tasteful' or 'cultured'.

This is why communities with persistent identities are fundamentally flawed.

Like I said come on already people, it's long past time to drop all this pretense already but again you're not going to because that'd contribute to breaking the fragile illusion you're trying to maintain that this community holds any value beyond a place to shitpost and talk about your often literal circlejerks over sexy character designs and relentless bad dialogue that passes for development of said character designs. Like fuck me I'm glad I don't give a shit about all this pretense anymore. Yeah anime has some sexy artwork, it's all good, I just refuse to sit here and pretend there's much more to it than that or that the community consists of much more than shitposting, people trying to trollbait each other and talking about who the best girl/guys are.

I mean sure that's enough to get superficial impression of the show and direction style, but there's so many characters and oddities that hadn't even shown up yet and taking in consideration the number of books adapted checking the 1st season shouldn't be too hard. But maybe I'm just way too predisposed to give shows time and let them sink. Being used to older stuff with longer episode order.

With MAL the best way to tell if a show might be any good or not is usually to look for something in the 6 or 7 out of 10 score range. The reason for this is that it probably means it's been little watched by the typical hype based MAL community with it's taste that is dictated by whatever is shilled the most before the season starts and has probably only attracted some people with slightly discerning tastes who use anything other than 1 and 8/10 on the rating scale. This probably means that it's somewhat aimed at people that have a mental capacity greater than that of a small child and thus potentially has some merit to it. No guarantees but it's what I've learned to work with and it works out surprisingly often

i started watching inou-battle wa nichijou, which is a comfy SoL with chuuni antics, and in all my years on Sup Forums i dont think i've ever seen a single thread for it
Get the fuck out you massive lying piece of shit.

Obviously you weren't on Sup Forums while it aired.

No, we're not.

The average are retarded weeaboo retards who think anime was mature entertainment for mature people like themselves like the faggot in this thread who thinks it was only "modern" anime that is shit and who's surprised that people on Sup Forums talk about female characters they want to fuck.

Another honest post that can see the damn well obvious. The sad thing is that it's the same pretty much no matter where you go. I might slightly enjoy this medium a little more if there was anybody I could still talk with that was even remotely honest about it and the things they claim to feel about it anymore but nope. Maybe if there were any actually decent shows still coming out it'd be different but that'd just be arguing theoreticals which I'm not really up for this close to going to work.

MAL has literally one path to follow and Sup Forums is just anything goes to fulfill the narrative necessary for the thread and what the OP is trying to do with it

This. I was one of the first people to convince everyone that Deku from Hero Academia was a crybaby faggot and people ran with it, creating their own "Deku is a faggot" OPs and ruining the threads forever.

I'd say it was a success. You can literally engineer people here to think a certain way as long as the manga/anime/LN/whatever is still early into its life and you have the willpower to consistently make OPs and regular posts that parrot your ideas.

And hence why it'll never get any better. If this many people are fine with the status quo it is what it is. I just which they'd bitch and whine less when somebody dares to go against the hivemind and gets told to fuck off to a board that's barely any different

What is "better"?

If you want to talk to people who are deluded about anime being deep and mature entertainment you're better off elsewhere.

What a helpful post. Anyway if OP or any other irresolute faggot is still lurking past the derailing point I think the payoff to many storylines doesn't come until Second Season. The only one whose arc gets somewhat resolved is Crab. And Shinobu a major player doesn't utter a word till the next one.

Unless you absolutely loathe it stick wit it a little longer.

I don't give a fuck. This is no hivemind. Shitposters are easy to spot and ignore. Threads get worse for a while and go back to mediocre after it tops airing.

Elijah Lee

The second season is even worse, so I don't recommend it.

You should drop it OP, it's really not worth it.

Because I'm not actually shitposting, I'm just commenting on inconvenient truths that people here don't like. The thing that people don't get is I'm not just fucking around here and trying to be contrarian, everything I say I'm being 100% honest about. You shitposter types are just so used to things going a certain way you can't even tell the difference hence another reason why you and the community is fucking hopeless now. Amusing if slightly irritating but hopeless

Chase Nguyen

Uh huh yep, any other gems?

To me real conversation and real opinions and not just trying to trollbait and be contrarian about everything which is what Sup Forums clearly values the most as quality posting.

Nathan Gutierrez

I' talking about SS not S2. That is just a setup like Neko. All the arcs in SS are considerably better than the ones in Bake. Even if you liked the original style better.

Owen Wright
Owen Wright

This man is correct, monogatari is an acquired taste and the snail arc is the most monogatari arc in bake. It takes some time to ease into it and the other arcs in bake do that better. I would say you need the three arc rule for bake, not the three episode rule

Charles Moore

anything that deviates from my opinion must be trollbait and people being contrarian

Sounds like you have some growing up to do there, champ.

That's actually pretty funny. I'm pretty sure it's ridiculously easy to get Sup Forums to go along with any shitposting narrative you choose as long as you understand the psychology of the average Sup Forums poster and how to construct such a narrative using the right language and memes. The best part is those people probably aren't even watching those shows, they just want to be there when the shitposting goes down much like MAL and being there when the hype goes down

Can't you fags just have fun on Sup Forums?

Do you not realize that people just want to waifupost, talk about fucking a girl, and other things because most anime plots are shit?

No, anime is not some shit to take seriously, most is mindless entertainment, fuck off with your intellectualism to reddit please.

It has always been this way, and if you actually want discussion, go to fucking airing threads/release threads because most shit gets discussed then. Not 5 years after the shit aired, and most already discussed the shit to death.

It's not Sup Forums fault that you watch shit late as fuck.

Right now I guess I'm mostly still here to see if anything remotely interesting happens in 2016 and to laugh at the people
What is this Mal tier garbage.

Just fuck off already you pretentious bastard. Go back to bitching on Mal where you belong and go see a doctor while you're at it.

If you are forcing yourself to watch anime for whatever reason, then that really means you have some kinda mental illness.

It's really not. All you have to do is put your idea there and mask it with memes and general Sup Forums speak and people eat it up, but only if people generally have no opinion on the idea yet.

Stop being a fucking faggot. You whiny fucking autistic cunt just go and watch the show, or don't. Nobody gives a shit.

its all good and well to say "fuck off out of Sup Forums and go watch animu" but you have to get the idea to watch a show from somewhere

Carson Harris

I dunno why people say episode 3 is the best. It's the first arc that shows the twists and turns of the show but other than that it's not that good, I found it rather boring my first time around but everything else felt good and enjoyable to watch.

It's fucking shit, don't bother with it. People like it because of fanservice and MUH DEEP STORY/CHARACTERS wich are both shallow and sad compared to other works where not everything infomational is thrown at your face via a solid brick of monolouges.
