"Anime database website MyAnimeList and e-book distributor Media Do Holdings announced on Tuesday that Media Do has acquired MyAnimeList from DeNA.
According to a statement from MyAnimeList founder and site administrator Garrett Gyssler, DeNA will continue to operate the site for the next few weeks as "bunch of logistics and legal hurdles are still being worked out." After this, a new team from Media Do will take over and will have a "new vision" for the site's future.
Media Do's press release mentions that it plans to "enhance MyAnimeList's functions as an overseas e-book distribution and marketing platform." "
smart business move
You bought a website that had people making lists as the main gimmick. It has a forum community.
Done with the Twitter and Discord promotions of the Best Anime and Manga of 2018 results.
Will log into MyAnimeList
I will extend the associations because I never thought of adding the best anime and manga of the year associations. there are folks who join the club page from the MyAnimeList side through looking those associations.
(and maybe update my own personal lists as I'm woefully behind)
There are more overlaps in the manga 2018 with the chosen sidebar. There are no webtoons listed in MyAnimeList since they go for retail covers. Webtoons don't have physical publications. No UnOrdinary or High School of God.
Taka For me Dr. Stone is a great read. The idea of having to rebuild society from scratch, albeit with plenty of knowledge is quite an interesting read to watch. Then as will be shown in the series as more people are added to the cast the interests of people will start to go in different directions leading to discussions and conflict. While the initial protagonist is just too plain to make it interesting, after not too many chapters a change of protagonist will propel the direction of the series from survival to rebuilding society. Despite the cause that chained the world being highly in the science-fiction territory the series is quite down to the ground, staying close to realism with their science. The series itself is very light in the action department, but it hinges more on psychological games and humor.The change of art-style from detailed to simplistic during these humorous moments works and shows the series does not take itself all too seriously at all times. The drawn facial expressions are overly exaggerated, which works well in contrast with the detailed artwork that is shown during the serious moments. Though i'd have to add the art-style in general is very good, with its attention to detail. Summarized it's a great read, and despite its classification of shounen it greatly distinguishes itself from other shounen due to the direction it takes on some of the typical shounen tropes.
Taka I actually already made an account to note my series that i have read/watched and are planning to.
Taka: I'm going to make new discussion threads for Winter 2020 anime while trying to finish unfinished business for Fall 2019.

Taka: Sorry to hear that Hungryworld. Dream Been mostly PC. I did use MAC a lot because that one school class had MAC. Not sure what DIO is. I have to say PC since that is I'm mainly using. I'll be present in the weekends.

Taka: My hometown is affected by MLK fever. We celebrate him every Sunday of this month. That's why I'm absent. I wished I get time.

Dream: Taka: Looks like you didn't click on the link in my last comment. You'll get the DIO nod when you click on it.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.

Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
