Hi, I would like to suggest changing the cover image

I think this is the reason why Vivy is so low in ranking on MAL this season since the cover photo makes it look like an idol anime when it's sci-fi.

For reference, this is what Wikipedia uses:

I do prefer the second one too but there's no way that the current pic has anything to do with rating.
I love One Piece and Gintama

It does, watch Gigguk's reaction about Vivy at:

And I kinda agree with what he said.

The first impression it makes because of the cover image is an idol anime.

I also think the second image (key visual) you proposed would fit better as the anime's cover image, but I kind of doubt it's gonna be changed tbh.

Signature and profile checks out. :p
Don't mind me,
just passing by...

Can confirm. I initially passed on this show because I thought was a weird idol show with an Android, kinda like Miss Monochrome but a little more serious. It want until I saw the first week it made it in the top of a lot of polls I decided to watch the first episode. But did I make the right choice there

oh yea, i didnt mean to make it seem like i disagreed with you, what I said was more of a statement of disappointment with the sad truth, rather than mocking what you were saying. Yea its kinda dumb, I mean if I judged what to watch based on the cover I would've never even considered watching madoka magica. I mean how hard is it to look at the synopsis or at the very least look at the genres

No offense taken :) Sigh, hopefully MAL consider changing the cover image soon. There's only 6 more episodes to go.

Actually amazed the change was done in only 5 hours lmao.

I'm really curious to see if this will have a positive effect in the series' popularity, I have been keeping track of that for a good while already (we finally hit 9th place in total members this season yesterday!) So this change is very interesting. This one is definitely cooler so there are chances it will grab the attention of people who would have just glanced at its old pic and ignored it.

But why such aggressive approach my nephew, why fighting with?
I am just sharing my opinion, I will do nothing beyond that.

Those who got wrong impression by looking at the poster did that even before the spring season has started, not to mention the stupid mood of the crowd at that point - "Winter season was packed, spring will inevitably suck!".

It is an interesting effect - classic judging book by its cover?

I for one read the synopsis before deciding whether or not I'll try the show out and Vivy and 86 stood out from the rest this season right away. When I read original Vivy synopsis the first thing that sprung to my mind is that either this is going to be a full on post-apocalypse where Vivy is just an insane bot hunting down the remnants of the humanity while being a creepy laughing bogeyman or a tragic tale of someone being manipulated by a time-traveler. It definitely exceeded my expectations with the production quality, but did not surprise me at all with the plot.

However, when I showed this show to my friends most of them instantly discarded it as something silly - blue haired robot idol? talking teddy bear?..

Visual first impressions are very important in a medium which is primarily visual, considering how much stuff is being outputted these days. Average consumer doesn't have the time to check multiple episodes of each new show through multiple mediums every season to see if they'll enjoy something so this happens.

I do believe wholeheartedly majority of people judge what they first see and make a quick assessment based on their preferences.
A prime example is youtube; almost everyone click solely on what the thumbnail or the title appeals to them. clickbait

The new image fits well.
"Manga readers are annoying, all they do is complain or spoil the anime we discuss in an anime forum.
They should really do their whining at manga forums.

I liked this change a lot, thank you for asking for this. Nothing against the old cover but it really doesn’t make the anime and it’s themes justice.

It only took them a day to change the cover....I'm impressed.

Anyways, I agree with the fact that the old cover is probably the reason why a lot of people avoided this anime in the first place. I initially wasn't even going to watch this anime, because based on the cover, I thought this was just going to be another stupid musical idol anime.

The anime being produced by "Wit Studio" is the ONLY reason why I gave this anime a shot and I'm so glad I did.

Good point, it really did look like one of those idol anime which are usually located at the bottom and are definitely not everyone's cup of tea.

As Gigguk said it was also placed very low in the seasonal anime list but now it appears to be higher. How does that work, I wonder? Are they lined up by the rating or popularity?
