I second that. Love the featured reviews bit.
I do not know if this has been brought up before or not but the "reviews" tab on the anime pages tends to be really confusing. What i mean is that many animes have alt names and once someone writes a review, his/her review has two links. Now when more people write reviews on the same anime, they all get two links. This creates a whole list of links that makes it harder for others to choose different reviews. Though this may be a small problem, making the reviews tab more organized and appealing might help with the overall image of this site.
As for the review quality themselves, that is dependent on the person writing the review. Focus should be given to motivate the writers to write understandable reviews. I agree with sothis that <3 and </3 buttons will only be abused. The only option is a "review police". Selected people who go around with a set of rules and judge user reviews based on those rules.
