this is my first forum topic, so please excuse me from any mistakes

I've used My anime list for a little over 2 years now and it has been my favorite "anime list" out of all the other ones i have tried. While other websites seem to be more up to date, i feel as if my anime list has not changed at. I bring this up because of the recent anime-planet redesign. I probably would never switch to another website because i've used mal for so long and i think it has the best community from what I've seen. But I love a modern looking website like crunchyroll and now anime-planet, and besides looks it seems to have a lot more new options that I would love to see on mal

So one of my questions is, will My anime list ever update? i tried googling it and got no where. If so, what should we expect. If not, should i switch over to another website and which one. (preferably one with that mal support so i don't have to manually add all my anime in again... that would take forever, and possibly an iphone app)

And for my last question, what do you use to keep track of all your anime and manga and why?

Thank You!

Probably not, they're incredibly lazy. After years they still have not implemented notifications.. -.-

The community IMO is a bunch of ***holes. Some good apples but a lot of them are bad.

Eh it's the same here just more controlled an looked at. Also, I too like Kuriyama, Mirai. I am actually about to write a tasteful review on Kyoukai no Kanata.

MAL really is just a simple tool more than anything to show what you are and are not watching. I don't think it was ever meant for more than what it does, which it does well enough. Don't try to fix what already works, it leads to more problems later.


If you are looking for flashier, possibly better, sites to use I think there is Anime-Planet and Hummingbird. Don't know how well they are compared to MAL, but I know others use them and praise them so I would check them out.

One nice thing about Hummingbird is they did have an option to import your MAL list over, so for someone like me with over 700 titles, made it simple to transfer over.

Don't remember seeing that option of Anime-Planet.

As for me, other than updating my list (it's a convenient way to keep track of what I watch), I don't use MAL for anything else. I don't think they'll be updating anything any time soon.

Same, here. I use MAL only for its intended purpose and maybe have a few friends on there, here and there.

I just wish i could do something like http://myanimelist.net/animelist/unLockd it's kind of hard to remember a show just by it's name only.

There are a couple of things that I want to happen with MAL. But the biggest thing I want is for tags to be sortable. I click on a tag, and I am expecting to only get entries that have that tag, but instead it does absolutely nothing. It's a simple tool to keep track of what I am watching, and for its purpose it definitely does its job.
