I'm not sure what the purpose of your post is. Do you want someone to recommend decent manga? Or are you just pointing out some of the limitations of this site's rating system?

I do agree with you that most of the comment and manga ratings on this site are inaccurate or inflated, but that's pretty normal for any rating system contributed to by non-professionals. Professional critics often have a code or set of standards that they try to adhere to, but most people who read manga tend to make biased judgments on mangas that they liked or didn't like. I often tend to pay more attention to the comments of people who give mangas mid-range marks (anywhere between 3 and 8), and never pay attention to comment ratings.

What I meant was that because the positive comments are rated not useful . It confuses me. Like "so other people disagree with this" "so is it going to be worth the read"? Well I tend to look at the "Did you find this comment useful?" rating so I get to know other people's opinion as well, I mean I might agree with the "Did you find this comment useful" ratings more than the comment. ( Sorry I can't explain clearly cry :crysmile

My only question if it's worth reading since quite a lot of people disagree about it being good. biggrin I wasn't pointing limitations, I actually like this site's rating system ( I guess since it's the only manga tracking website I use.)laugh

Yea, I guess it's true that some people make biased judgements eyes
