Seems like this anime has also come under the effect of trolling, check out the stats(About 3% with 1 rating).
Its looks like soon, top 10 will only be occupied by the more popular ones.

That's unfortunate. However, I am expecting an overall fix very soon, so I'm not too worried.

Its score was 9.10 when i joined MAL, thats pretty sad, its an easy target because it has a small fanbase.

The funny thing is that this isn't even the worst Chihayafuru had to go through, it had 30% 1/10 to 25% 10/10 at some point

Yes, a lot of the fans bumped all their scores to 10/10 just to balance it out so now, it's 17.8% 1/10s.

Not everyone who gives something a 1 is a troll maybe they just didn't like it, it also has it's own fare share of boosters.
They promised they are gonna solve this issue so we just have to wait for them to implement the solution.

I just check the stats and just moving 3-5 pages, I have found 5 troll accounts, who rated it with 1, one can confirm it himself or herself.
Also, the score drop from 9.02 to 8.99 in a few days time span is huge.

Proof -


Some other profiles I have found who rated this anime "1"
izyaniyan
LavonteConner

I am just saying that MAL being one of the most used site by the anime community, these things are going to hit hard, especially for the new fans who want to venture into something new, apart from the more popular ones. Low scores of some good/genuine anime which may be of their taste may prevent them from giving it a chance.
One good example I can think of for myself is Uchouten Kazoku and also my all-time favourite Now and then, here and there
Both for me are excellent anime but low scores and less popularity cost me a while to get into them.
Now I have learned my lesson. :p

@Mirai
No matter what one says, low scores definitely hinder an anime's growth and I am speaking in a general sense, not specifically for this anime

Wow the score just dropped hard lately, it used to be at 9.10 before the trolling that began last year (and would be at +9.20, threatening FMAB without all the fake accounts)
And then, God missed a step of his stairs

Lol, ok, that's rather unusual, I could've swown the score was still at 9.04 a few weeks ago when I started it. But honestly, why should fans care so much about validation, everyone who has seen it knows how good it is and that should be satisfying enough.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Hopefully once MAL finally rolls out anti-botting software after millennia of waiting, and many of those accounts are removed, the score will jump back up to around 9.10 where it was a few months ago. This'll also boost up the scores for a lot of top rated shows.

The only reason they're targeting LotGH is because of the low vote tally, as a few hundred votes can easily influence the rating by quite a bit, just like Chihayafuru with it's few thousand votes before the trolling commenced.

LoGH ratings have been trolled for as long as I've been on this site. Surprised its taken this long to get it below 9.

Mayuka said:

The vote totals are roughly the same, but the percentage of 1 votes is more for Chihayafuru 3 because less people have scored it.

LoGH used to be higher than 9.10.

If you expect the devs of this site to be able fix anything competently, you haven't been around long enough.

False, it's literally 99 percent trolls. Before the bots came in it almost didn't have 1 ratings. So check your facts first before you speak.

So are you saying that you personally checked every single account that gave it 1 and concluded that they are trolls?
All I said was that not everyone who gave it one is necessarily a troll, I didn't say that trolls didn't exist.
Besides score don't even matter enjoyment does, they are hardly a reflexion of quality.
The drop in score won't hurt LOTGH since it is already a well known anime in anime community.
Kineta already said that they are working on a solution so you just have to wait.

Trolling? Are you sure that it's not just because not everyone likes LoGH (me included)? I wouldn't rate it 1 but come down, who cares?

I'm not a math guy, but if troll accounts are deleted, I'm pretty sure LOTGH won't return to its 9.10 score but instead jump to ~9.20 (before getting downvoted again by panicked FMAB fans)

I love this anime and I don't care where it's ranked becuz this top 10 list is just full of troll accounts who manipulate the list according to their taste so that no anime can beat their favorite. Unfortunately this a pretty old and not a mainstream show so obviously it's easy for some salty shounen fans to downvote such a lagendary show. I honestly would have never watched this show if I haven't seen this show in top 10 but I think a lot of people know it's reputation so it doesn't matter to them but people who are new and doesn't now about such anime will give it a try if it's highly rated.

Theyre doesn’t seem to be much progress on that front, infact I don’t think MAL is doing anything. Chihayafuru, The Great Pretender, now LotgH is suffering the same fate. I honestly don’t care much about this anime’s fate with the score, but clearly trolls realised you can just make 10’000 accounts and just fuck with all anime you want until you downvote it into oblivion.

Also the 1/10 votes are clearly bots, incase u still have doubt about that. The overall 1/10 votes were in the very very low triple digits just a few weeks ago, I checked it myself.

Why would anyone watch 110+ episodes of an anime they score a 1/10 tho

Same with Chihayafuru season 3. Why watch season 1 and 2 if you're gonna give season 3 a 1/10?

Accounts that are not "verified" or have some long time since creation shouldn't even be counted in the score.
Just to show a basic thing and how the score system on MAL is a joke, just see how my list is scored

I know a german Elitist-Youtuber who watched complete Naruto (220 episodes) and Fairy Tail (first Season) and gave both a 1-2 on MAL.
But he says himself, that "these shows were entertaining, but it's trash and trash deserves a 1". Don't ask, I don't understand this mentality either.

I know a MAL user who watched 700 plus episodes of One piece and gave that a 1.I question why these people would go through the task of watching such enormous amount of episodes only for the aim of giving it a bad rating but i digress.

I think entertaining anime are doing something right if they can get someone to keep watching it. I finished SAO s1 with 25 episodes, it was entertaining. That's 8 hours of my life gone. But I don't think it's a 1/10. Obviously it has a lot of flaws but decent parts to it, like an easily digestable story, good visuals/art, music.

If an anime were really 1 or 2 or 3/10 and it was like more than 12 episodes, I wouldn't even bother. Just drop.

I think possibly a few shows would jump up in the 9.10s, probably very close to the 9.20s

Probably because people give up because its old or cant keep up with it and it has no action for the shounentards. Plus LotGH has some huge elitist pricks in the fanbase so people probably dislike it for that reason also lmao.

LOGH being targeted by certain groups is not new. I remember back in the day some hardcore Clannad fans getting together to bump it down in order for Clannad to overtake it.

In a few years it might not be even in the top 50. As long as Gintama pumps out sequels and with MAL not solving the sequel bias problem, its bound to happen.
