Nope, the rating system on this website is by general consensus to be extremely gay for this reason and lacks granularity.

Whole numbers are all there is.


It is obvious that "obscenity" is not a term capable of exact legal definition; in the practice of the courts, it means "anything that shocks the magistrate".

They should really add 0.5 ratings in between the whole numbers.

Anilist from what i recall, has 5 different rating system which is super cool. I really wish we had a similar stuff in here as well. That'd be awesome.


so your thinking anilist is better? Because i dont know what to use

Just use your tags or something. This doesn't really need to be a built-in feature.

Bigger userbase and community. One could argue the average scores are a better reflection of the anime community as a whole. Usability, appearance, not so many pretentious hipster snobs who use Anilist just because they think MAL is too mainstream.

As for the question of the rating granularity, I think 1-10 is fine. Would I prefer 1-100? ... maybe. But it's not a big deal.

Decimals? Nah. 90% of MAL users use 5 or less numbers to rate anime

Better than allowing people to rate shows 0.00 or 0.01.

2 ways of scoring shows would be a cool feature, but definitely not necessary. If it was ever added, I think it would just troll those who are looking at the score though as you'll see people quickly hopping on older shows and either giving them super high scores or giving them a 1, so it doesn't give an actual representation of how the community views the show.

Decimals only make sense when we average all the votes for a given show. For individual votes we have more than enough with 3 possible values (good, average, bad) or at most 5 (very bad, bad, average, good, very good). Any extra values only add meaningless random noise.

Both anilist and MAL have cons and pros.

MAL might have a larger database, more users, better forums, way more reviews, a recommandation system, clubs etc. that's the differences i can think about.

AL on the other way has 5 different rating systems for everybody, has more themes (for people complaining about white theme), community and users are more friendly there in my opinion, AL also has the following system and the global chat, which makes it easier between users to communicate.

to each their own, but i suggest you at least to update your list on both sites. you never know when one of them might go down, you don't want to lose your list.

also one more difference about MAL and anilist : anilist has more manhua/manhwa in their database (chinese and korean comics) while because of MAL policy only a few make their way in their database. as an user who reads lot of korean comics i really need to have them in my list, because without them my manga list looks empty

MAL is much simple to use. I don't know why you need 100 methods to rate like on Ani. It's stupid. You simply rate anime in your watchlist, you are not making a scientifical study, nor are some professional critic who needs to spread his/her subjective wisdom on the masses. The 1 to 10 is perfectly fine. Each number has a meaning too. For example 5 - average, 6 - fine, 7 - good, 8 - very good, 9 - great, 10 - a masterpiece. Is a simple scoring mechanism that is way more practical than giving, I don't know... 8,7 to an anime. What's 8.7? How do you calculate that? How exactly is different from 8.6? How do you decide that?

#/10 is enough and simple enough scale.
I don't need #/100000000000000 there is no point. Scoring is subjective. They could get rid of numbers altogether and simply keep their scale on their description form. (but no point.. as 10 numbers and descriptions for them are much cleaner and minimal)

Or well, don't score alltogether and add ur own scaling in tags...

@Nashy maybe you can enlighten us.

Sometimes I have hard time deciding between 6 or 7. Can't imagine how I should decide between 6.5 and 6.6.

Me and my friend realized we f up when we decided to stop near a gate beside the road on our left as soon as we saw a police roadblock ahead in just like 20 metres away. We were busy admiring the scenery on our right and the fact that tonight is a weekend around here. We got pulled over by 3 motorcycle (cops in disguise) as soon as we try to cross the road to where we come from.

Long story short, 3 minutes later a car did a quick u-turn and so the chase began. All unit were mobilized so since we were still not at the roadblock checkpoint we were able to just escape quickly while cops at the roadblock could only report back to send back at least one superbike cop. We were able to feign ignorance at a traffic light where the superbike cop could only stare as he rode past us as he wasn't so sure if it was us.

This happened 2 hours ago, we were just 3.5 minutes away from signing a ticket. The car which was beside us (prepared to chase us in case we didn't stop) had me in surprised as he shouted multiple time to move my bike quickly as he quickly drifted the car into main road to chase the running car which is usually because of drug possession.

It took me 28 minutes to write this as I was rubbing my cat to melt my anxiousness away and hope they didn't remember my plate number (small number with a small plate for this rare occasion).

i want the option that i can better compare anime. If i give 10 anime a 8 out of 10 i want to rate it that i can say this anime was better than this. so i give this one a 8.7 and this one a 8.4 or something

Why would you even need decimal places at all to rate in the first place? I don't get it.

Personally I find even MyAnimeList's whole numbers too be too much granularity; my rating system is essentially a five-point system.

because i watched 150 animes and 10 numbers are just bad to rank for me. because i want every anime rate eventually. so i can give a 10 then a 9.8 and not 5 animes a 10

I mean even simpler option would as well work.
"Bad"
"Average"
"Good"
"(Favorite)"

But yeah.. number system is more useful as it's easier to make statistics.. especially for "top" lists. And others..

I've watched over 2,000 and I don't see any issues with the system. Not judging, but it just sounds a touch OCD to have decimals.

You have the option to put a comment in the tag on each anime in your list if you are so obsessed with details. Or make your own list in Word or Excel and make a top. For the rest of us, there is no point for an overly complicated rating system. We usually see anime as categories, not as individual pieces, because let's be real, you won't remember what 90% of the anime you watched were about in 3-5 years, so it really doesn't matter. Having categories for shitty, good, great and masterpieces, is simple and practical. Is not that hard to make a system where you rate what you would consider good anime on a scale from 6 to 8 for example, give a 9 for those who were great but not good enough to be considered masterpieces, and give 10 for those select few. The score on MAL is not like the one on Amazon where the ratings sell something. Is something simple that help us chose what we watch and something that remains in our list, once we totally forget about those anime we watched... Decimals would overcomplicate everything.

Maybe it's different in a site with millions of users, but all they have to do is change the database number type to a float with some limited decimals, and bin the numbers for visualization purposes. People like you won't notice a difference and can still use your 1-5 scale. People who want to be able to mark the difference between 2 anime if they've watched more than 10 shows would be able to.

Give people 10 points and they'll stick to 5. Give them 20 and their scale won't be much different. People here are just too shitty at rating anime to trust them with half points.

I really would like to have a 0.5 system up to 10. There are anime which I don't want to give a 7 bc I think they are better than a 7 but I don't want to give them a 8 either bc I think they are just not "Very good".
