And in other news, the sun rises every day~

Who actually pays attention to those ratings though? They're one of the least important things when looking for an anime.

MAL is only good for keeping lists imo. They have bad taste over there, and their forums are toxic to no end.

Although how they rate anime over there kind of baffle me. But then again, I do like some of their topic on their forum. It's kinda handy for me as references to be honest.

I don't really keep anime lists, seems like too much a pain. I just use it the rare time to browse through genres as a starting point to find anime I haven't seen.

The forums are terrible, so many stupid people. I only use the site to organize anime and manga that I've seen/ will see. It's good to have an anime list so you can go there if you're having trouble remembering certain anime that you've seen.

Use AniList if you don't like MAL and btw, I can copy and paste MAL lists of anime/manga to AniList. Someone just said "Crunchyroll is superior to Myanimelist". Well, okay girl! then how do you explain the amount of people over here being childish and idiotic too? I don't see how everybody here is better than everybody in MAL, see the hypocrisy? a certain amount of nice guys on CR does not speak for the rest of the community; the same goes to MAL.

If anybody is gonna complain about MAL reviews, then take a look at how biased Anime Planet reviews can be by being routed solely on ignorance and nostalgia. I looked up Inuyasha in AP and there were insufficient critical helpful reviews. Reviewers over there barely know how to write, anyway. Those Inuyasha reviews, for example, were mostly rip-offs of each other. It's not that they ran out of ideas, it's just that most of them can't get their own s**t out of their noggins before writing reviews. Weeaboos! Weeaboos everywhere!

Every website has it's own up and down. I agreed that both CR and MAL forums are no different. I don't understand the hate.

You're in the minority.

CR is a lot more civil and jovial.
MAL guys are savages.

I'm on CR forums a lot, and you don't find the kind of shit on MAL here bar the religious and political debates. And even the political debates can be civil. We got the one dude who's 15 but is probably more well versed than 80% of the voting population.

If you couldn't tell, I don't see then in a great light. The anime discussion threads are...... wijnwiubdwuibfwefwe

I encounter a lot of civil-minded fans on MAL too. As I said, I got to both MAL and CR they both have up and down and to me, I see no different. If you spend some time on MAL, you would be thinking the same thing like I did.

The Ratings posted on MAL are the Japanese ratings, not the US ratings. In Japan, Nudity and sexual situations are not all that bad, but violence is. In the prudish US, nudity and sexual situations are bad, but violence is just fine.

Can't you request on MAL that the ratings be changed (most of the time, they deny it since they're probably ultraconservatives)

also, check out this PDF (http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/document/view;ECFSSESSION=JJkzW2ZZdy34gp2mpYfQBZ7mzGg6JXDYFnLvF8hykChQyDcTNHYf!-1566059965!1951721665?id=7022137466) that explains how stupid US censorship standards are

Being new to the whole anime scene in general, I don't really have much experience with it. But looks like I shall be avoiding them from now.

Stepping into the MAL forums is like stepping into Hell.
