So when is Tower of God being added to the database? It had an anime adaptation recently announced, that is reportedly being produced by a Japanese studio as well.
It was announced at the Seoul comic con event.

So since it's being produced by Japanese studio, it should then fit the guidelines to be added to the database, correct?

No in the same way how just because there is a https://myanimelist.net/anime/6919/X-Men anime doesn't mean all the X-men comics get to join the database.

Manga/manhwa/manhua still have to follow the Manga database guidelines regardless. At this point in time Tower of God does not meet the database requirements, with the anime announcement S.Korea might print the series formally which at that point it can then join the database.

I'm referring to the anime only, not the manwha. I realized that the Tower of God manwha isn't allowed in the database only because it isn't published in print, nor is it from a recognized publisher.

However, the anime is a different case, being produced by a Japanese studio, so MAL should definitely add the anime to the database at least.

I thought you were talking about the manhwa b/c you talked about it in the Castlevania thread about how it's not in the db.

Why don't you add the anime yourself? MAL is a user-submitted database, they can't approve something that nobody submitted.

Just did! I've never submitted an anime before, nor did I really know how the process worked, I just saw the forum "Anime DB" and other people making threads similar to this one for other series they want added. I just did the same, but yeah hopefully it's approved.

Other anime that have only been announced with basically zero other information such as Dorohedoro were added to the database, so I'd hope Tower of God gets similar treatment, and gets added even though there isn't much info on it quite yet other than an official announcement.

Yeah, great news, I think the story fell off a little bit. But 1st season is awesome, I hope the anime adaptation will do it justice.

if there is so much disconnect between the sites guidelines and the wishes of the users, maybe the site should think more about how to adjust the prior instead of constantly having to deal with explaining why they won't add it.

but nah, that is too rational of an approach.


i think the problem is because MAL is owned by a japanese company DeNA then now MediaDo so they want to prioritize japanese media more

@ugmon probably, it's not like I blame the mods, they get enough backlash for just doing voluntary work anyways, I'm not gonna join in on that lol

but yeah it must be tiring to continue having to deal with these threads, feels like the users want the site to change but the site doesn't really want to change it's awkward


welp AniList hopefully becomes more popular if MAL cannot evolve further
AniList currently has 300K users while MAL still have 6 million and counting

Oh come on, even here in MAL there is this shit of mutual prejudice / resentment between Japan and Korea?

It is not a question of "priorities", or CHINESE works would also be neglected.

The truth is the deep cultural rivalry. It prevents korean authors to allow their works to be adapted in Japan, or japanese companies really RELEASE a series based on manhwa*

*Note 1: Ragnarok anime does not count, because before manhwa, it comes from MMORPG - see the source: https://myanimelist.net/anime/417/Ragnar%C3%B6k_The_Animation

*Note 2: As far i know, the only case of famous legit Korean Manhwa/Webcomic to be adapted in Japan was the single episode ONA of Noblesse: Awakening, in 2016.

Don't be so sure about ToG, even if it was announced.

probably when it gets an announcement of what studio will do it, not sure if they have said specifics yet


Lots of anime get added to the database despite not knowing any details about the studio yet, or any info about it at all, such as Dorohedoro.

Tower of God still hasn't been added to the database despite being announced over 2 weeks ago. I sense a bit of bias.
