I use MyAnimeList, it's quite popular and multi-use, so you should be able to find what you need there.

IMDB is often reliable, plus it's good for the 'related' animes bit (so comes up with recommendations).

I was going to ask why IMDB wouldnt suffice but then I thought, well, I guess, these anime people have their own fan-base sites with their own sub-culture and stuff...

Lol "these people". People that appreciate art in its many aspects hardly warrants the need to be seen with such difference. Philistines and the rest imho.

I did give them a chance, tsar, most of them seem mediocre to me, I see no big deal in the genre. "These anime people" was sarcasm indeed though. Keen eye, shooter.

@dd
Now that's what I call a connoisseur!

I personally have a little method of viewing, I base myself on these priorities in:
Italian dub
Japanese dub with Italian subs
Japanese dub with English subs

I don't even consider the idea of watching an English dub, it always gives me a vibe of looney tunes or animaniacs for some reason.

We had a great tradition of dubbers, I don't really find any shows worth watching that were dubbed in Italian nowadays (or maybe that's because I'm not searching enough), but most of the time I find it's the best at capturing the emotion of a character and of the scene. (Though sometimes it can be hilarious, rest in infamy Shin)

And that's also outside of anime, I will forever cherish the dub for Warcaft II, in my opinion one of the best works of dubbing.

I mean, it's sort of fine when you're watching a comedy but there are certain shows that I wouldn't like that.

Besides I have refined tastes.

*closes tab with monster-musume streaming*

Yes, very refined tastes.

I have never actually watched an hentai anime, they keep recommending me a masterpiece called Boku no Pico, but I need to find some time to watch it.

I reccomend it to all of you by the way, it seems a great show!

Don't actually do it, psychiatrists expressely say not to watch it, you've been warned.

*scoffs pompously*

that's downright preposterous. if you were to sever your own leg and assault people with it, you're "beating them with your severed leg". kicking involves using leg muscles, and since the muscles in this instance are part of a now inanimate object, it cannot be then described accurately as "kicking". this is limb-beatings 101, and quite elementary, indeed.

edit: left an unneeded word. *severs own leg and beats self with it*

I'm using anime-planet but like any anime site, I tend to be wary of ratings. Lots of hyped kiddies with license to vote.

Generally speaking IMDB has the same problem that MAL has, that is, popularity brings good reviews. IMDB is not as bad as MAL(probably the worst offender in new series category) in this regard but still problematic. In my experience Rotten Tomatoes and Anime-Planet(this one suffers from inflated ratings on older series) are generally a little better in this regard than MAL, but not by much. The problem is pretty simple, most people don't rate things based on how good they thought the piece was objectively, they rate on based how much they enjoyed it. Which is of course a problem because "like" is subjective and changes from person to person. For example, my ratings on A-P are generally ½ stars lower than average but for athmospheric philosophy about humanity, they can be drastically higher.

Then there's this. It's a funny joke because it's true. I did a quick checkup and the spring season anime has an average rating of ~6,85 on MAL with a median rating of seven when the scale there runs from 0-10. So when you see something with a rating of seven, it does not mean it's pretty good, it means it's exactly average. This is partially because people are stupid and partially because people only tend to watch what they think they'll like in the first place.

Your best bet is finding someone who's general taste/criteria for judging matches yours and leech off them. Maybe a TV blogger, a movie critic, fellow HCer...then just follow after their watchings and watch what they like.

I'm guilty of it. lol. Though in my defense I only watch a show if it either has a premise I like or if I saw some scene that I liked and wanted to watch the rest of it.

I like to think that the 10s I give are actually worth 10 and it's not just because the show was entertaining.

I don't get it, are there actual sites with "5 to 10 score systems" in general? I've never stumbled upon any. How can you look at a score system of 10 and not realize 4 is an option? And how can it be so common, not just not realizing it but also a group of people with such generous scores that they wont see low scores already given in the past. Didn't they ever visit IMDB or similar sites with the same score system?
