What is Anilist lacking for you to never look back?
I'm one of many who have turned to alternatives due to the unacceptable issues MAL has had over the past month. Anilist is so far the best website I have stumbled upon, and it has many features I prefer over MAL, however it also lacks some features that would truly make me not want to look back. One such example is the Recommendations feature, which I've seen suggested a few times, however I have seen no admin respond or provide any form of ETA. The lack of such feature forces me to go back to MAL when I want to see recommendations. Are the admins of Anilist sufficiently capitalizing on MAL's situation? What is Anilist lacking for you personally? What would make Anilist the best Anime website so that more and more people can come over? ModEdit: We now have an AniList Roadmap with planned features that you can check out here

Learn Japanese with AniList Friends :)
So yesterday I posted about wanting to take learning Japanese seriously and my post was met with a few people who were interested in joining me. I thought it would be interesting to make a discord group for anyone interested in learning the language together, that way we can keep each other on track and share what we've learned . So if you or anyone you know would like to join the discord and learn Japanese with us; feel free to join by clicking here Note: I haven't added any channels or permissions or anything yet as the discord doesn't have members but once things get going I'll be sure to make it look nice and have a bunch of text/voice servers

Achievements
Hi, Are there some kind of achievements here similar to the ones on graph.mal? I think there are no "official" achievements but I saw someone with a 100 days watched badge.
Two Factor Authentication?
I'm quite a big fan of the site, I love the sleek design and functionality in most cases. Sure, there's a couple things I'm still missing , but most of that I can survive without. One thing that does frustrate me, unless I'm completely blind and oblivious, is that I can't find any way to add another layer of security to my account. Why is there no 2FA support for apps like Authy? It's quite a standard feature at this point and the thought of losing my account like that has be worried. If I'm missing it, please let me know where to find it. I'll try to delete the post as soon as I get it enabled. Thanks for reading.

Reccomend 1 single cour anime that the above user MUST watch.
This may be a bit more work than someone may want to do, but if you do play along I ask that you at least follow these rules . . . When recommending Single cour is typically 13 episodes or less, a show that would have aired throughout a singular season. don't recommend anything longer. If you are recommending something try to make sure you at least gave it an 8 or above . no one wants to watch trash. MAKE SURE THEY HAVEN'T ALREADY WATCHED IT look at their list beforehand. . . . When watching Obviously, if you don't like it drop it. When you're done come back here and give the person who recommended it your thoughts If you somehow can't watch something recommended ask for another recommendation or tell them you can't watch it. . . . Start with me
Dororo is going to be AOTY 2019 material.
Based on the work of one of the most influential mangaka in history , directed by the same craftsman that directed the Shishio arc of Kenshin, Trust & Betrayal and HXH, series composed by the same person composing JoJo, and last but not least the music from Dead Leaves? And not only all of that goodness, but done by Studio MAPPA, who's given us some of the best animation in recent years? I try not to get hyped about anything, but I'm just about vibrating in my seat.
Which video game(s) are you playing at the moment?
As a freshman on AniList, I just started working on my anime history that I have put on hold for perhaps a decade long. I always had a stronger presence in various video gaming communities, but that pretty much changed as of late. Although I lessened leisure time for gaming and watching anime instead, I'm still curious about the gaming habits of fellow AniListers. On top of that, quite some games nowadays are intertwined with existing anime and manga. There's no doubt that many people here enjoy playing video games as well. Without further ado, let's see what the AL community is playing right now Do discuss further; may it be about current progress, completion, consoles and handhelds, merchandise, fangirling, you name it: as long as it's within the broad bounds of gaming, anything is allowed.
