I know we shouldn't take MAL scores too seriously and I may look like a hypocrite saying this but hey... it's rare for a BL anime to be rated this highly so I'm happy at least.

Bwahaha, it's funny you made this because I literally just made a post about it for the MAL Facebook page to go out later.

Kek I was actually monitoring Given for a while now to see if it can somehow manage to break through the 8.00 mark since it was really getting close or will it fall off because I remember this one was just staying afloat along the 7.7 range.

Sksksksk waiting for the commotion in the comments section then.

The mark is now 8.01 and it is deserved. I just hope more people will watch this gem. The whole progression of the relationships and the music are simply great.

Please support KyoAni!

HMM...a BL-music series standing in toe to toe with last Fall's Bloom Into You?

That's a thing, or even better.

"Given" is one of my all time favorite mangas, and honestly, I wasn't expecting the anime to be that good. I was so pleasantly surprised by it! The pacing, music, atmosphere... Everything was really well done. It totally deserves the 8+ and I hope they will adapt the rest as well.

Watching things for their story, direction and impact is much more important than caring about the focal sexuality of the characters. Given is a masterpiece of a show in most ways and if it was straight-centric it would be extremely popular.

I don't care about this is BL or Gay anime, which is clearly "Given" is the best adaptation of BL anime not only in terms of the story that really follows the manga, but Visual also the theme song of this anime are really worked with epic. It is not wrong to give high marks to this anime. Visual Story and BGM I give 5/5.

Once it reached 8.08 after episode 9, I expected it to reach 8.3 and I am glad it almost reached it.
Best Boy's love/Men's love anime I know.

Well or you could check it out and maybe you will get what they meant instead of being sarcastic like this.
Edit: Nevermind. Of course you have given it a 'try' and dropped it after giving it a 1. Not surprised.

Giving a 1 just because of that is a very childish and immature behaviour, congrats for acting like a 8 yo




I'm glad Given almost reached 8.3, it truly deserves it
And then, God missed a step of his stairs

It is really too bad, why would you judge the anime based on some comments on the forums? I mean, even if it was not a masterpiece, it was done very decently. Even if you only refer to the anime, and leave the manga aside.

Score threads don't encourage discussion, only arguments and baiting between people who liked and disliked the show. They usually sum up to people claiming how the show is overrated or underrated and we already have a thread for that purpose: Most Overrated/Underrated Anime Discussion Thread v.5
