Way to dampen my mood.
Anyways, I understand why you guys have to take the site down, thank you for your hard work over the years. I really loved using MALGraph for its recommendations, achievements, and statistics; I hope one day MAL will revive this popular future.
this sucks, i updated my MALgrpah whenever a new title was added to list or a bunch of changes/updates had been made to ratings/eps seen ( when 1 update per day limit allowed it ) because i freaking love statics like this.
I'm still hoping someone who has the time/money to keep it alive will propose to take it over in order to keep it around for everyone, but since that's probably won't happen as you don't get rich having enough free time to watch a lot of anime and being a big anime fan won;t leave much time to maintain it, does anyone know what the next best alternative is?
I've always loved MALgraph and really enjoyed the stats and achievements that the recent versions have provided. Sad to see it go, but did have a feeling it would be gone one day, as it seemed the devs were often experiencing problems with it, many as a result of changes made on MAL's end. It would be great if someone else picked up the project, or if another site emerged which provided similar functionality. Would be really good, too, if MAL could start to integrate more extensive user stats, and even things like achievements, into the site itself. I'd certainly find myself making greater use of and enjoying new site features that increased user engagement with the site and its core functionality, as opposed to the recent changes that have been introduced, like heightened social media integration.
This may prompt me to give more of a chance to one of the alternate anime listing services out there. Over the last few years, the reason I've been reluctant to fully migrate to something like Hummingbird or Anilist is that I would lose out on relevant MALgraph info, which I love so much. So with MAlgraph no longer a factor, I'll feel more free to try out the alternatives. And who knows? Maybe these sites will introduce MALgraph-type functionality into their lists. I mean, if I was looking to create an alternative service to MAL that's based on its core functionality, I would look at what MAL lacks and what the users of that service want, and then provide it. Certainly, something I really wish MAL had, and MALgraph provided, were comprehensive list stats.
This is a shame, but totally understandable. Thanks for your hard work maintaining and updating. I will miss MALgraph my anime experience feels like it will be missing something without it's neat data collections.

Müller said: I think he's quite godly as a groom, too.
Thanks to MalGraph I've been trying out some more genres besides romcom; it was so nice to see the stats. The amount of school/romance anime I've seen suprised me. Having used it for barely a year: thank you so much! no reason to watch BnP anymore tho
For me, the worst thing about it is losing that monthly history. It was the best to see how my tastes evolved, to see the lazy periods and intense periods, that slow start, that moment of becoming serious person. Would be so nice to find something similar.
Fuck. This is a devastating loss, it's almost sad how integral malgraph has been in my history with anime. I've used it extensively, I spent hours reading through my stats, which anime was my favorite year & such, the works of certain studios I've seen & perhaps my favorite, how much anime I've completed per month. Because of malgraph, every year in March I attempt to complete the most anime possible & that's huge. & the achievements were awesome too! I was so happy, just last month I finally got another achievement besides "complete x amount of anime" & it was the GAR achievement! I'm going to miss it tremendously.

Aw man, I was really starting to get on a roll with checking my stats. Thanks for all the hard work, guys. The three proudest moments I've had since joining MAL were when I maxed out romance and slice of life, and reached four hundred anime; I will surely miss that feeling until another stats site appears.
goodbye sweet prince
Thank you but it hurts because I enjoyed looking at stats on a regular basis.
Definitely added an extra oomph for me during all this time i've spent on this website.
because we all know that MAL is missing quite a lot of useful things...
