Weekly Ratings – Week 13 Final

Winter 2014 is over and now we can hopefully look forward to warm weather! Sadly where I live it’s still in the 40s and but not for much longer! I’m ready for green grass and flowers over the snow and ice. Remember next week I’ll have a new format for the ratings, old format will still be around but won’t be talking about the MAL taste of anime much.

Only shows not done yet are two cour or Saki because it got pushed back by the Japan elections. Everything else is done and seems to stabilize a bit in the rankings. Did have four big jumps in the rankings though. Hoozuki, Buddy Complex, and Pupipo! all jumped at least 500 placements. Z/X Ignition also jumped a good amount but the show is more in the middle of the rankings on MAL so it’s a little easier to move about. On the Fall two cours we have Nagi no Asukara making the top 100 list with Kill la Kill. Even Gundam Build Fighters jumping into the top 500 list.

Even have some extra graphs for us to look at for the final. Both graphs show the same type of data, it’s the growth of a series over the course of the 13 week season. Positive number would mean that the series got “worst” in the eyes of MAL raters compared to the first week of the season.  This is only one of many ways you can analysis the data. I also took the season’s average and median % change.  Average was 7.14% for the season and -4.96% on the Median. Median would show that more shows had a “better” rating by week 13 of the season. Average is positive because I kept outliers in my data which are pulling the data positive or worst in the case of the anime show.

Do know that normally the winter season is known to be the weakest of the year for anime series but since this is my first time doing this I have nothing to compare too. I want to say that having a negative median is a good sign for the season and anime in general. Shows that series more than not are better than we first thought aka First Impressions. Hopefully after some seasons I’ll have more results to compare to each other and learn a little more about the general anime watchers.

*Edit* Okay the outliers thing was bugging me so I went back in the data and found the outliers for the season to take them out. Outliers for us would be series that did way better or worst than we(MAL raters) thought. Low outliers are: Nagi no Asukara, Kill la Kill, and Hoozuki no Reitetsu. High outliers are: Hamatora the Animation, Wizard Barristers, Sakura Trick, Chuunibyou demo, and Mahou Sensou. You could in a way say that the high outliers were over valued shows and the low outliers were undervalued. After outliers are out the average is -11.50% and the median of -6.05%.  Values much closer together so I’m happy. Maybe next season we’ll have even a lower % but not going to be easy with 4 shows in the top 100 and it’s not even a week into the season yet. Please remember that the analysis still has errors in it. Some would be that I don’t have the data for the first cour of the fall continues and I didn’t have every single show that aired this winter in my data list. If I did have that data we could see different numbers but I’m hoping that with taking out the outliers should have helped for a lot of the errors. You can see the data Here.

Weekly Ratings- Week 10

Image from Random Curiosity.

Feel this week was very good for the more serious anime titles of the season. Hmm maybe drama base shows would be better. Golden Time, Nagi no Asukara, Noragami, and Saki all felt good to me. Golden Time really stood out with either a love or hate feel to the series now. If your into romantic/drama titles than you should check it out.

All the comedies this week wasn’t very good or in my opinion, even though they did well in the rankings this week. Best and Worst movers the same from last week: Hoozuki and Mahou Sensou respectfully.

The one series I didn’t watch that I’m thinking about starting soon is Magi. Watched some of the first season but never finished it. With the third season green-lighted I’m thinking I should catch up on it. Maybe I can get that watched over the spring season.

Weekly Ratings 2/15/14-2/22/14 (Week 7)

Even with a surprise ending in Hamatora and the action picking up, both Hamatora and Toaru Hikuushi slide back in the rankings. While Space Dandy and D-Frag doing the same mindless episodes and move up the ladder. I’ll never understand mal ratings by people.

Hoozuki is really funny or I’m enjoying the show a lot. It’s this week’s best mover by moving 168 places. Worst on the ratings this week was Mahou Sensou, gaining 300 places. The shorts haven’t been that good this winter, we have Seki-kun which is good but then everything else is so so or very bad. Pupa btw is still falling to the bottom.

Random facts for the season so far: Saki: Zenkoku-Hen is the least watched show and Noragami is the most watched. Biggest mover as in positive is Hoozuki no Reitetsu. Week 1 it was 3868 and now its 2450, on track to break 2k by week 11 based on this pace. Worst mover in placement isn’t pupa (that was bad from the start), but it’s not really a shocker as it is Mahou Sensou. Madhouse doesn’t always make winners.
