Do you for the most part agree with the rankings on MAL?

I don't myself I mean Ashita no Joe isn't even in the top 200 that's just blasphemy. Also Code Geass is pretty high up but I saw one episode and hated it so much I don't even know if I can pull myself to watch episode 2. Steins; Gate was good but don't know about top 5 good.

On the other hand, this makes me sad: http://myanimelist.net/topanime.php

Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki is in there now, really MAL, really? I mean, I lost all my faith in you people a day after I joined this site, but this is ridiculous, even for you guys. But well, I guess it's Madhouse, and it's not moeblob and the story is uber touching, so it has to be amongst the top 30 anime I guess.

Ok, wow, KuroBa is above Madoka. Yeah, I kind of loathe this community, too bad there's nothing more decent either.

No but I also don't care about them. It's impossible for them to fully match up with my own ratings.

Well I said for the most part since there is no way they can exactly match your opinion. That would be just silly if I said that.

I pretty much understand why those shows were ranked the way they are. I'm too lazy to figure out whether or not I agree with the rankings. Isn't mathematically computed or some crap like that? Plus, that list is useful when it's time for me to pick a new anime to watch.

Oh, and the rankings on MAL are probably a 100 times different than the rankings in Japan.

Anyway, Gintama is number one - so I'm not gonna complain.

For the most part it's just a big popularity contest, so no.

There's always going to be something ranked high that you don't agree with. I don't get worked up over it. What's the point?

Rather than for or against, I'd say I'm just indifferent. Also, it's important to note that Ashita no Joe isn't completely translated so a lot of people who are interested in the show, like myself, probably haven't watched it for that very reason.

Yeah I know but their are other examples of great shows with lesser rating like Saint Seiya and City Hunter. Also I don't take the ratings that seriously in case I made it sound like I do.

This thread should be locked by a member of staff, this type of discussion only leads to all out war :P So without getting into it, I'll simply say no I don't agree with the rankings. Problem is the vast majority of people casting votes here are under 15 lol...... and I don't trust the opinions of anyone at that age :P

Sir, for someone who is requesting a thread to be locked, your double post is a violation of forum rules. Also, it is okay for this kind of thread to exist, but not when there have been multiple threads about MAL rankings. Not to mention, this thread is just a typical thread whimsically created under the premise, "the stuff I like isn't rated high and the stuff I don't like is." It's fucking redundant, simple-minded and obnoxious.

I'm sorry I just wanted to ask the great and wonderful people of MAL what there thoughts on the rankings of this site were. Its been a long time since I last visited and just wanted to ask a simple question. I don't really care what the ratings are I just stated I disagree with them. Sorry if your butthurt over my simplemindedness.

That's the thing, Saint Seiya and City Hunter I could see why people don't like them a lot, even if they watched them. City Hunter was just like a lot of older anime where they are long and they repeat similar situations a lot. And Saint Seiya, I don't know how to explain it, but I don't think MAL users would like the story and characters even if they got past the art.

I'm not shooting them down, because I did enjoy them (at least City Hunter, I got bored of Saint Seiya). I was saying that I could see why people wouldn't like them, and older anime have kind of an advantage in the ratings, stuff like Maison Ikkoku, Touch, and Igano Kabamaro are rated quite highly partly because of the small amount of users that have watched them.

I was being silly lol. Actually it's all a matter of taste I know this but I disagree with older stuff having an advantage. Only one 80s anime in the top 30 and thats LOTGH.

That's probably more depending on how MAL is calculating its ranks. IntroverTurtle was right, allthough I'd put it more harshly than him.

What 80s anime is missing in the top30 in your opinion then?

I know if I state my favorites your going to tell me why they suck and how ashamed I should be but i'll do it anyway. Ranma 1/2, City Hunter, Hokuto no Ken, and Saint Seiya. Fortunately as I mentioned LOTGH did somehow make it.

haha, no, not at all. Even though some people here will tell you differently, I'm not particularly enjoying simply hating on other peoples taste. I really was just curious.

Wanted to check out the score of the shows, and they did land some pretty good ones (lots of straight 8s for example), it's exactly the thing IntroverTurtle described. About them not showing up in the ranking: It's really just a calculation issue, if you're interested in the details, you'll find the algorithm they use to calculate the rankings on the rank page. I think the key issue in them showing up so far behind, is the comparable average score (as opposed to Logth for example) combined with the few people who watched it.

Sorry for jumping to conclusion but I figure you would understand why I expected a hateful remark ( I expect this from most of the internet not just Mal ). Thank you though for a dignified response. I know they don't have poor scores but I just find them superior to some of the ones in the top 30 ( City Hunter is by all means just as good as GTO but with more episodes ). Still I don't think the top 30 is all that bad at least their is Monster which was wonderful.

I take 'em with a grain of salt, or at least for the ones I've watched up there. For the most part I agree that most of them are probably well-made and have merit to them, perhaps even deserved merit, but whether I legitly like them or not is totally up in the air.

Ratings of a show have little or no effect on what kind of score I give a show or if I watch a show or not. So, in conclusion, I could care less about ratings.

For the most part, no. Popular shows tend to have inflated ratings simply because they're popular.

Well Steins;Gate got like a 9.5 or something, which I cannot understand.

Then again this is an average of all the ratings of everyone on this site. If most people like it then the one with the deviant opinion is me, I am the weird one. Therefore I look at individual reviews and ratings and don't get my panties in a knot.
