Applying Baka-Raptor Ratings To My “Completed” List

The Baka-Raptor rating system is interesting because anyone can easily implement it. It does away with the most challenging elements of most rating systems by not requiring that shows be compared against one-another. Everything is determined by objective readings of one’s subjective experience with a series. It also looks like a lot of fun, so I’m using it.

I chose to interpret the question, “was the show strong all around?” as, “did the show never bore me?” This means I had to not only recognize the show as strong, but actively enjoy the whole of it. I did this to prevent shows that I like and respect as strong but don’t totally enjoy from getting a ++. I assume this is similar to how Baka-Raptor uses the question.

Fact: This is not 100% of the shows on my MAL completed list. I left out a couple of things that I either am not sure I actually have completed, or don’t remember having completed. I also left off things like “Code Geass Recap Episodes.”

Counters and Percentages: (of 453 ranked shows)

+++ 35, 7.7%

++ 114, 25.2%

+ 145, 32%

~ 102, 22.5%

~~ 50, 11%

~~~ 7, 1.5%

Glancing over at Baka-Raptor’s percentages, I have an overwhelmingly larger percentage of ~ shows. The reason for this is closely tied to my also-overwhelming number of dropped shows (418 to Baka-Raptor’s 49, meaning 41.4% of all the shows I’ve seen to his 9.4%)—I watch everything. If Baka-Raptor watched as indiscriminately as I did, he’d have as many shows he didn’t like.

Why are there so many shows that I don’t like which I didn’t drop? Most of the ~~s consists of shows under 30, probably under 10 minutes long.

Baka-Raptor has finished at least 4 shows since making his post, which gives him nearly the *exact* same number of ranked shows as I have in this post. The interesting take-away here is that he’s finished more shows that he enjoyed than I have. If I grind out the rest of my 92 “on-hold” and 32 “watching” shows, will I match up with him, I wonder?

6 thoughts on “Applying Baka-Raptor Ratings To My “Completed” List

  1. Skimming your list, I saw that you’ve watched Candy Boy Episode 0 but not Candy Boy itself. I hope it’s on your “in-hold” list, I enjoyed it very much.

    • Actually it is in my on hold list I think. I probably watched the first episode. It could be in dropped though, I have no idea. I’m not particularly excited for it or anything.

  2. I watched a lot of of anime indiscriminately when I first started watching anime, but after a year or two I started going mainly by reviews. If a lot of other people liked a show, chances are I’ll like it too, so mostly + grades. Even for shows that are currently airing, I tend to wait out the first three weeks unless I’m pretty sure I’ll like them (sequels for example). Let other people sit on the front lines. If the consensus is that a show is good, I’ll pick it up around episode 3-4.
