Also, what's a good place to check anime ratings. I'm not talking about looking for top rated anime so I can watch them. I'm more concerned about watching something that's horrible. Tenjho Tenge was bad, but it sounded/looked interesting, but if I would have seen it rated low I wouldn't have watched it.
The only places I know of are ANN, MAL, and maybe AnimeNFO. At least which of these is probably the most accurate.
