Good Bye 2008, Hello 2009; New Year, New Scoring Scale

With the wrap-up of Mouryou no Hako, all series that are going to end in the last season of 2008 have ended. But there is no time for a break, because several January 2009 season animes has already started, though most are webcasts instead of aired on televisions.

The scoring scale I've been using up till now is the common "5-star" system, which is a 5-point scale. Some of my friends told me that this scale is a bit confusing because many people are used to the 10-point scoring scale. Since I don't have those fancy star icons, people that are not familiar with my blog might get confused what kind of scale am I using unless I explicitly state it every time. To fix that, from 2009 onward, I will switch to 100 point scoring scale. To compare the old scale score with new scale score, simply multiply it by 20 should be roughly accurate.
