Now that I read a bit about sampling bias, I still think that as biased as I am with my god tier taste, it still makes sense for 5 = Nami-level futsuu averagely normal average.

Hyperbole and taste aside, someone still should explain sampling bias in a less convoluted way than Wikipedia to me. :P

The "character" in Super Sonico is in of itself just a mannequin for various big-breasted fetishes in every literal sense. Good of them for trying to make a character out of a "character" I suppose.

They separate trash into combustible trash and incombustible trash in japan.
In the case of incombustible, It's called "moe nai gomi"...
which can also mean "trash that is not moe".

That's interesting.
:)

K-On was pretty much the only anime I've ever watch for the moe factor.
I watched Tamako Market because of the mochis!
And that sums up my list of moe anime that I completed :|

Most things you measure you do by taking a sample. For example, you can't test something on all the people in the entire universe, so you have to do with a finite number of them, say 1000 people. These 1000 people are your sample.

However it's often impossible to select those 1000 people at random. For example you might get your sample by putting up an ad in the newspaper, but then all those 1000 people will be the readers of that specific newspaper. Usually then, those people have something in common too, which might alter the outcome of your measurement.

Say for example I'm testing how many people smoke out of 1000 people. If those people are all very highly educated I would get a significantly lower percentage than if I'd choose those people at random from the entire population. That is because the sample I used was biased.


In my case I'm basing my rating not on the average quality of all shows that have ever aired, but rather on the average of the shows I have watched. I also base my expectations of how good something should be by comparing it to stuff I have already watched -- not the shows I haven't watched yet. This causes a sample bias, and in my case my expectations of shows keep rising and rising causing me to drop shows at the tiniest hint of not being really good.
As such I would find it unfair to call a 5 average, when really my sample on which I would base that average is extremely biased. Hence I decided to raise the definition of average to 6.5-7 ish.

FUUUUUU~~~~~!!!!!!

The exact same thing I'm learning in school now..... I got a D+ in maths last semester.....

Since when do they teach total Total derivative, Partial derivative and the del operator in highschool anyway.....

Sad things like math should not be allowed to be featured in animes.

I enjoyed this anime. Really nothing outstanding though.
A bit overly dramatic here and there IMO
And the last episode was...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
....almost Oreimo-stupid.
That made no sense at all.
At least they did not ruin the whole end (well maybe for the people who missed out on the two minutes after the ED)

Nuh uh.... -_-

 

Twas awesome but yeah, I know that some saw it as just random schiit pulled out of nowhere.

D-Frag
Mahou Sensou
Nisekoi
Noragami
Nourin
Sekai Seifuku
Space Dandy
Wake Up Girls
Witch Craft Works
Wizard Barristers

What you see here are a lot school-life comedies. There are a few reasons for this: 1) School Life Comedy has a wide appeal and is easy to digest, aka after only 1-2 episodes you can tell what the rest will be like, there probably won't be any surprises re: plot depth/direction. 2) I like Moe 3) I like Comedy. I'm not afraid to admit it either wink.gif

*P.S. I am not giving these an unconditional vote of confidence, my experience tells me that 9/10 of these will be getting 6 or 7/10 ratings. These are just the types of shows where if someone asks "what should I watch?" it would be easy to rec. these and have them find at least a couple that they would enjoy.

*P.P.S. This list will be completely useless to Tilpo.

 

Yeah, most of those shows will probably wind up being average.

(I personally don't rate anime because I found it nearly impossible to standardize them.)

Lol, I love how the name imperial scale caught on. I say that a lot but I say 'imperial' as a double parody. The first one being because ImperialX first made me aware of it, and second because imperial is also a type of 'scale' or standardized measurement of sorts and what not

Nice! That actually looks legit.

See, easy.

 

Yay, another imperial scale user

There are....partial derivatives?

 

I ended school year with a C in math.

 

B's and A's in quizzes, hw's and class participation and everything...D's and F's on every every single test and exam....

Or if they do, at least make it more interesting math than vector calculus. I have to admit to that stuff being boring as hell.

http://www.reddit.com/r/anime/comments/1v6h4s/2013_tv_anime_sales_rankings_update_klkknk/

 

TV Sales and rankings from Autum 2013 have been updated.

 

BOOM!, as of right now. Arpeggio of the Blue Steel is in second place behind IS2 YES!!! And Valvrave 2 is also up top, just in front of White Album 2

 

http://www.reddit.com/r/anime/comments/1ge8w9/alltime_bestselling_tv_anime_average_sales/

Chart of best selling anime ever 

 

Going by other chart data, I would say, and so it seems that the 3,000 units WA2 and Valvrave sold were repsectable, and looks to be enough for WA2 to get a S2.

 

Again, I think charts like this are important in seeing why anime feature moe and otherwise stupid elements today in its series and why more and more 'serious' anime have an addition of comedy and SoL to it. A good chunk of the best selling anime of all time are 'serious' anime, but if you look at yearly charts, you have to account for just how MANY serious anime didn't chart or go anywhere relative to how seemingly easier the SoL and moe-comedy charted. A large portion of the top selling anime of 2013 had fan service in them. With most of the top ones having an excessive amount. SnK breaks that chain, but again, the data is the formula to producers.

Speaking of moe, any of you watch Natsuiro Kiseki? I see Tilpo watched it. I feel it was pretty good with some interesting social issues being raised, but none of my other animu friends watched it.
