April Fools is now over! Thank you to everyone who played along with and fell for our prank this year. I'll post a selection of funny responses to the petition in the next day or two, for those interested to see.

Look forward to our Easter event coming up in three weeks! And we'll count on you all forgetting about April Fools again for next year~


We have recently discovered that to be in compliance with GDPR—an EU law regarding data protection and privacy that went into effect last year—we must also apply these privacy mandates to characters. As we try to navigate the legal implications of displaying character names and images without their guardians' permission, we have hidden all character images and names in our databases.





Don't despair!
We plan to and will protest these authoritarian tactics to SAVE OUR CHARACTERS!


What can I do to help?
Step 1: Please fill out our petition below. First we must identify how many users are against this change, the most affected characters, and what we can use for negotiation tactics.




Click Marumaru Yamada


Step 2: Spread awareness about these changes and encourage more users to sign our petition, using one of the following banners (to be updated as more are created):

Profile Banner

Forum Banner

Step 3: Consider creating your own banner to help us rally for change! Please post it in this thread once you're done.


Thank you for your continued support as we do our best to fight this.
We'll update you as the situation progresses.

Was going to make a comment about this being the dumbest protest ever and was actually kind of pissed off a bit but then I realized it's probably an April Fools joke. I didn't take this into account first because it's still quite a few hours until it's even midnight over here.

So even MAL fell victim to EU's new law, huh? Well, this website had a good run while it lasted.

I might have got that this was an April fools thing if it wasn't still 3-31 for me.
