There was an option like that before. But it put too much pressure on the sever so it had to be disabled. It will be back at some point but not anytime soon.
It's never going to be back is it?
Why would you lie to us the way you do?
Updated signature because Tinypic is shutting down.

I don't understand why the site would need to process every single user though? Surely it would just compare the people who watched a common anime with you? And you could limit it to, for example, users who watched anime you rated 8-10 (and also gave it a similar rating perhaps). Those stats are already attached to the anime entries.
The site would take your list of high rated shows, and look through the users who also gave high ratings to find those most frequently recurring.
Sure, it's still no small amount of processing, but there's no need to scour the entire database when most users have probably never seen your favourite show.
It wouldn't even necessarily need to include rating either if it complicates things (although narrowing it down may make it easier? Idk), simply "who has watched the same shows as me?"
Some people do have long lists, but a lot of users' lists are quite short.

Why don't we follow an organized system to limit the number of users who can use the feature?
For ex, we have 5M users, u can put an option to activate the feature which not every user will use immediately
Now for ex 1M users has it activated
Limit the feature to be used once every 100 days
1,000,000 ÷ 100 = 10,000 per day
10,000 ÷ 24 = 415 per hour
Also we can limit it to calculate shows only above 7 or 8 rating.
Of course not everyone will use it and it will be limited so i think it will be a good implementation.

Several limitations required.
1. Last time logged in - not more than 1 month ago. Currently inactive accounts will be useless for user anyway.
2. 40(50) or more shared animes for representative sample.
3. Each account(or individual ip) can use this feature only once per 3 days.
