MyAnimeList

Post by Crisu » Wed Feb 18, 2009 5:59 pm

If you haven't heard of it, it's like Facebook for anime.

Have a hard time keeping track of what you've watched? Or you want to find out what you watched on this day one year ago?

Start filling in your anime history on your profile and log your fandom.

There are also cool features like auto-sigs, like the one I have below.

It's hard to think of what life was like without MAL, and more specifically, the MAL Updater program. Ah, how easy our lives are now...

Before MAL, all you could say was "Ah, Haruhi? That was ... 2006 right? Yeah I watched it and was all confused about the order, but it was a good show."

Now, you can go as far as, "Ah, Shana II? Yeah, I totally started that on October 27, 2007, and here's what I said about the first episode in the message board. My opinion of Kazumi totally changed by ep x -- which I watched on ___, __ by the way -- when she did this and that. And oh I rated it an 8 and wrote this review that 20 people liked and .............."

It is interesting that on, say, the forums there is 10x as much stuff in the Akkikan forums or whatever as the Haruhi forums.

Animes before MAL get shafted in the MAL discussion forums. Look at the difference in the amount of stuff per ep even between HAruhi and Kanon. It's fairly remarkable.

I remember before MAL I wasn't able to watch more than 3-4 shows at once because I used to forget which episode was the last I watched.
The wonders of the interweb!

MAL is a good site for keeping organized. Ever since registering, I've kept good track of what series I've completed, I'm currently watching, planning to watch, and have on hold. It's also got a variety of clubs that you can join to support your favorite anime, manga, characters, and video games. I've also met some good people in the site's community that have introduced me to a lot of awesome series and helpful devices, such as MAL updater.

It's not only helpful when it comes to fulfilling your otaku needs, it also provides useful reminders such as upcoming friend birthdays, the latest news in the world of anime, and reviews and recommendations of the past and most recent series. I think it's very beneficial, and it's got it's own advantages over other anime sites.

Look up high into the beautiful sky, with a steady gaze. Lets commit this moment to our memories.
We will make the beautiful sky even brighter. I will embrace you and your wings.
I want to protect that radiance. It is what keeps me going.

I have a MAL account. I only use the bare bones basics, and I don't update it a whole lot, but it's there.

Real men use Excel on top of notepad

And I dumped both after discovering MAL. I used to be a pretty big contributor to the community (5000+ forum posts) but the whole site has just been crashing and burning lately. I guess it was to be expected when its popularity took off but it still kind of sucks.

And that's why we worship MAL Updater 8D

rofl, notepad x4 here. I don't know how to use Excel, BUT I'M NOT AFRAID TO ADMIT IT! Am I man now?
As for a Plan to Watch list, I made my own custom heap of ANN links to each of them in my Favorites folder, in order of what to watch next. It's still there, because I'm too lazy to delete all 30 links.

But MAL totally beat my previous recording system by 9001 miles, of course. My life was complete after I got MAL Updater, resolving my laziness to update each episode everytime. BANZAIIII

Heh... I was using Excel, too. That's the one thing I dropped after I got into MAL. But I still use notepad for keeping track of where I'm at in a series.
