Distribution of anime scores on MyAnimeList.net anime scores anime

Oh wow. With the standard deviation, we can actually know if an anime is good or not according to MAL ratings. Gotta save that 6.502639987 ± 0.888527941 somewhere.

level 2 · 6m Nice! Just curious, but did you web-scrape data directly from MAL or did you use a pre-existing database? If you did, then I’m really interested if you do a horizontal bar chart about the popularity of each first genre of anime
Much closer to a normal distribution than I would have guessed and the mild positive bias in average score is 100% understandable given that most people drop stuff they don’t like, and watch things because they’ve heard it’s good . This analysis makes MAL look much better in my eyes.

Yeah, I also think a 1-10 scale system is pretty well representative compared to others like 5-star ratings or yes/no to recommending something. MAL gets IMO more shit than it deserves when it comes to anime ratings, I even find the highest-rated anime and manga pretty agreeable and inoffensive. anime scores It’s much more believable having a highest-rated show as 9.18 than IMbD has a lot of ratings in the 9.9 scores.
Wack, my mean score in literally 6.50 lol
level 2 · 6m Bro I’m having statistics classes right now in my engineering course, seeing all that stuff applied in real life, especially with anime, it’s just sexy
I do sometimes disagree with the ratings of a show , but much more often than not, I find them pretty spot on.
level 2 · 6m There could also be a cultural bias. I know in the US, school grades are a function of your %score in the class. A 70% score correlates to a C grade, which is the bare minimum to pass. 60% is a D and a failing grade. So even though a 5/10 is supposed to be “average”, people sometimes feel like 7/10 is the “passing score” for liking vs. Disliking a show they rank.
The nerd in me is kinda surprised this isn’t closer to a normal distribution considering the number of shows.
