So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Really love the science fiction manga by Hoshino Yukinobu (whose adaptation of the scifi Inherit the Star won the Seiun Award this year), particularly the artwork that conveys sense of wonder really well.

I dropped it though. Was it really worth the watch?
Why are you watching the S2 of the anime that you loathe?
¬‿¬ And give the suggestions board some love please.

An idea similar to my suggestion here got implemented but because of another guy. But I get to enjoy its benefits. So I Got That Goin' For Me, Which is Nice.

It was entertaining... I wouldn't say it's award winning though.

Congratulations, Bodacious Space Pirates! ^_^

I appreciated the story for what it is and not what other people expected it to be.

I can see why Bodacious Space Pirates won the science fiction award. It spent a lot of time exploring its setting and explaining battle tactics (which probably scared away some viewers) and especially the political aspects were really interesting.

I think it was pretty award winning worthy though. It was not pretentious which other series like Psycho Pass seem to suffer slightly from.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I'm really glad Bodacious Space Pirates won, it may not have been an outstanding anime, but I think they did a good job with the sci-fi elements most of the time.


Edit: wording.

Yeah, I was surprised to read this news at first, but they did quite a good work on the sci-fi part of the series, so I can see how it could win this award. Especially with these nominees.

Rinne no Lagrange <3

I'm surprised that The Avengers is in the Best Media category. Japan has good taste in Western Superheroes.

It was entertaining, except that filer arc at end of the series.

I watched the first episode recently just when I was bored and going through a bunch of series first eps just to get an idea of what they are like. I have to admit I was surprised, I expected tons of dumb fan service. Basically Moe' Pirates in SPACE! It reminded me more of all those 90s sci-fi anime, and I will eventually go back and finish it. I gotta say I judged it by my first impression of its cover/poster, and it misslead me. I think people who like stuff like Mighty Birdy ext, would probably enjoy this. Not award winning from what i could tell though..
