"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.
Old Man Dream: Well, I went ahead and already spoiled myself over later events in the series. Looks like that gets fairly messy with handling its little plot twist involving Rika, Satoko, and the mentioned story element having some assume there's some sort of...

Old Man Dream: ...Umineko crossover. May have liked the idea with better handling of the story development. But it's basically made Satoko a rather unlikable character now.

Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...

Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
