…Why? Doesn't the ranking already speak for itself? Does this mean every anime up to a certain score percentage is considered "peak"? I ask because can't anyone just go to the ranking list and check out the top rated series?

Because it's more of a meme word, I have a feeling this is going to age poorly.

EDIT: A reminder that MAL, an English site that enforces an English speaking rule, posted this late in the afternoon on March 31st for most English speaking territories. Posting April Fool's jokes on the last day of March is lame.

Is this your attempt to avoid to do better job when it comes to score boosting and deboosting ? Because your current system can barely do a god job when it comes to reducing the spam scores from fake accounts which have ruined many anime, manga etc.

Yeah sorry but this is an awful change.

Now instead of an easily readable numerical score, the score is now tiny and you have these horrendous looking thumbs instead. In what way is one and a quarter thumbs more intuitive than a 6.5. It looks terrible.

EDIT: Just looked at the date because someone else mentioned it. Thank fuck lol

@Plats Because many of the changes that mal has done to ''improve'' the site were like an April fools joke so now we can't be sure of this is a joke or not

Oh doy, I feel like an idiot. I hadn't even realized April Fool's was tomorrow, probably the same for most of the detractors here.

Instead of giving us the option to rate by a Point Decimal for example that's what we are getting?, we get the ugliest and most useless change ever nothing was wrong with the number score or anything you just made it look worse with a picture of Mountain Fuji that adds nothing to it. It made it harder to see the score now and the definitions of peak uhhh and all the other definitions are fine but like was this change necessary? NO

So:
0% to 59.9% (0-5.99) = Uhhh


60.0% to 79.9% (6-7.99) = Okay


80.0% to 100.0% (8-10) = Peak

Every year so many people fall for it. Every year I hope some of them are just playing along with the joke. At least this one isn't super obvious like some in the past.
