I only use MAL to keep track of the anime I've seen, am watching, etc. also with finding ratings for anime (to see if it's appropriate enough :P).
I don't pay attention to the reviews, simply because almost every anime I like is trashed upon by reviewers on there. I'm not going to listen to someone elses opinion just to determine whether I should watch it or not.

MAL is a horrible site for any type of reviews. The only feature for MAL I feel people should use it for is just to track the anime you've watched other than that it can be helpful on wanting to know the staff/characters or other seasons of an anime.

I just use it to post forum topics and make a list of my anime/manga.

Stay away from the forums and reviews and mal is gold.

If you want to know whether or not to watch something, read some info about it, then watch the first episode or two. If you don't like it, then don't watch it.

Meh, I mostly use it to organize my anime and manga I'm indulging myself in. Nothing more. I really don't care what that community has to say about it.

Only started using MAL about 2 weeks ago but I hate how when I want to update a show on my iPad I am inundated with ads that block the page, as well as being unable to scroll down in the add window. Also, since yesterday they have been asking for a CAPTCHA every single time I go on the page.

I am trying anilist.co now and it seems pretty good. I like how they let me choose the English name over the Romaji name, though there are some weird resizing issues with the website.

I only use it to keep track of shows and manga. I've never really even noticed the reviews.

MAL's forum section is shitty and I HATE it. Everything else seems fine with me.

I use MAL for keeping track of what I'm watching. Same goes for My Drama List. I never read the reviews on either site because I honestly don't care what other people think about a series I'm thinking of watching. Most of them are ridiculous opinions given without much thought anyway. Rating a drama before it even airs? Oh please.

Posted 600+ times on the forums on MAL, the people are all a buncha idiots.

It's a great site for having an anime list, though, which is why I still log into my account there

It's goof for keeping track of what shows you've watched. The forum is full of awful people.

to start with iv been going on myanimelist for anime title how long is the anime series and rating's manga,music singer's etc. then they came these bad reviewers. lets say i finish watching inuyasha. beautiful story romance action and comedy super natural and repetitive flashbacks that get so addicting lol and the name's kagome..kagome!! ..inuyashaa..inu-yasha!!. anyway's my point being is the poeple on myanimelist talk trash and keep poeple from watching good anime. in general all anime is great i love them all. i thought we otaku's are trying to get more poeple into anime not be against them. what are your thoughts and opinion's on this site?


Seems like you can't accept that people have different opinions from your own. I am a fan of fan reviews.

As said above, it is good for keeping track of the shows you have watched. It's also a pretty decent place to see what an anime was rated, not because of individual reviews, but because of the sheer number of ratings. If you were trying to decide whether or not to watch Ano Hana, you could look it up on the site and see that with over 210K reviews, it has a rating of 8.71. You might not rate it the same, but for the most part, if a show on MAL has a rating above 8 it is unlikely to be a complete waste of time, provided it has a significant number of ratings. The other catch is that you have to wait a good while after the show is done airing, because a number of people will rate a show before they have finished it.
