Whether it be the score of weighted scores, or the scores of another user, or even your own scores.
When I think about it, since different people use a different system of ratings, scores become somewhat weird to use as a base to “should I watch this or not”.
Seeing average scores before watching something might make people biased or judge a show without even seeing it yet so I think they aren’t to be taken so seriously.
So anime scores for me feel pointless since very different ideas are being merged to present a majority idea instead of an absolute idea.
Some people care about their own scores because then they can see how their watching/reading habits evolve and others get more value out of people actually discussing what someone thought about a series(its strong and weak points).
I feel that most people rate based on enjoyment. Ultimately, the average score doesn’t really matter if you like something, but it is a good guide of what you can expect.
There is no perfect show that everybody likes. Every person have their own personalities, ideas, perspectives, experiences, and opinions. So a score defines a individual’s different opinion in that particular anime and helps us understand that particular user’s interests.
The rating of an anime is up to you on whether you want to rate it a 1/10 or 10/10. I don’t really care about the rating. Rather than judging the anime by other’s rating and reviews, It’s much easier to watch the anime and decide for yourself.
