So, what do I do when I'm bored at Uni (and should be doing other things). I think about pointless crap like "I wonder what NHRV's review rating distribution is". So, here it is:

x-axis are the ratings, and the height of the columns give the number of reviews people have done with those ratings. Chances are I've miscounted somewhere, so it's probably not 100% accurate, but it's close enough. Oh, and I only counted anime reviews.

So, what can we draw from these graphs? Well, Tale's distribution (red) is almost a perfect bellcurve. And, ignoring the massive number of "9s" he's given, Kuma's is almost perfect as well. Difference: Tale's center is around "8", while Kuma's is around "6"... which either suggests that Kuma is a harder reviewer, or Tale has reviewed better anime.

Genki hasn't reviewed nearly as much as Tale or Kuma, but ignoring the large number of "10s" she's given, she's pretty much got a bellcurve distribution as well. DK's is the weirdest distribution, but I think that relates to the fact that he hasn't got nearly as many reviews as everyone else. (OMG WRITE MORE REVIEWS DK!!!!11ONE)

Me? I'm flatline, just about. I haven't written a huge number of reviews, but other than "10" and "1" I have at least a review with every score. I also have exactly the same number of reviews with a score greater than 5 as with a score less than or equal to 5. Coincidence? Of course.

So, what trends can we draw from this? None really, since it's all based on coincidence. I just wanted to see what it'd look like. Now that I think about it, I probably should have done a graph of totals... but I didn't think of it at the time, and I'm too lazy to add it in. It pretty much looks like a slightly larger version of Tale's distribution (surprise, surprise).

Discuss... not that there's really a great deal to discuss.
