Unfortunately, MAL has been getting slower and more unusable lately. Apparently to the point where I’m subjecting myself to Endless Eighting Mushishi episodes.
It’s a shame, because even though MAL seemingly hasn’t been improved in years, it’s actually still a fantastic cataloguing and listing site. But the glacial speed and the multi-hour delays in list updates is getting to be a bit much. So after flirting with Anime Planet for what seems like months, I’m going to spend the next couple weeks using it a lot more to see if it can be a worthy replacement to MAL and report my findings. It has a handy MAL list import function which makes the transition easier. I could use some friends to see what that functionality does, so please drop on by!
