Hitting The 1,000 Anime Milestone

So if you haven't seen my signature, I created a website called Anime Gauge. It's basically a Metacritic for anime. It gathers reviews from reviewers all over the Internet and averages their scores into one. Which gives you a good "gauge" if an anime is worth watching or not. 

The site also ranks the anime from worst to best. Similar to the Billboard Top 100 for example.

So I've always wanted to boast that Anime Gauge has ranked 1,000 anime. And I finally can!! Actually I hit this goal weeks ago. Currently, it's at 1,010 anime. And I have no plans of stopping.

Now why 1,000? Why not less than that? As far as I know, there hasn't been a website that ranked that much anime. Maybe 500 best anime of all-time. But I don't think anyone has done 1,000 best anime of all-time. Correct me if I'm wrong of course with a comment below.

And so the question, now what? Comes into my mind. Well I plan to just keep going. The goal has changed and gotten bigger. Now I want Anime Gauge to rank 2,000 anime.

Doesn't MAL rank all its anime by users?

Also Congrats!

I think Anime News Network uses a ranking system too. I think the metacritic (meta-analysis) part is probably what is unique about your set-up.

 

Still, it's cool you have your own site and that it is growing :) I'd really be interested in a guage by genre list (space opera, reverse harem, mecha, scifi, etc) but that could be pretty complex seeing as so many snime cover multiple genres or have subgenres throughout.

It does. I actually use MAL as my guide in what shows to add. :D

But Anime Gauge is different from MAL as it includes scores from MAL and ANN and IMDB and Ani List and Anime Planet and so on.

It's more comprehensive than MAL scores.

Yeah a lot of users have suggested the addition of genres. I think its a good idea. It will be very useful.

So I need to figure out how to add that soon.
