"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.
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...

Dream: ...to the 2000s series.

Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.

Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.

Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.

Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.

Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.

CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...

Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys

Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.

Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
