…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.

What's lame is you being a sore looser after falling for it. Chill it's just a prank and they will revert it back like usual.

It ain't that serious bro lmao. Posting an April Fool's prank on March 31st is lame, but kudos to the MAL staff for making it believable. After terrible updates, such as using emoji to rate user reviews, anything is possible on this website. Despite the joke bring poorly worded, its believabilty is what makes it better than prior year's pranks.

This is the first time I actually fell for a MAL's April Fools' joke before looking at the comments

Same xD mostly cuz there've actually been people on MAL begging for scores to be removed

That said, if this really had been to appease them...

LMFAO give them a cute lil mt fuji just to shut them up but the scores re still freaking visible ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Great april fools prank ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ whoever came up with this has really been paying close attention to the forums

You know... out of all AF jokes they have done, this one is the lamest out of them. Not only i's unfunny but it also looks like something they would actually do considering the emoji system for the review section.

Still the fact that many people fell into the jokes every single years is quite hilarious to see lol.

It's unneeded and unwanted. Another "improvement" that was unnecessary and unwelcome. If you can understand basic math you shouldn't need to highlight a good score. Who are you catering to? What demographic needs this?

I am a COMPLETIONIST. Aiming to finish AS MANY ANIME as possible before DEATH, Despite them being SATISFACTORY or if they are BORING.

I WATCH THE LOWEST SCORED/RATED/RANKED ANIMES ON MAL (OR you can CALL THEM The WORST animes in the WORLD - No Joke Like Seriously)

No anime has actually satisfied my anime taste, That I can call a MasterPiece (10/10), still searching... hopefully one day I will find that show and obsess over it till I die.
RULE NO.4 I MUST WATCH ALL CONTENT FOR THE SERIES I HAVE FINISHED, NOW THIS ONE IS QUITE EXHILARATING.

@TheDefCrypt so you admit to my point that it was sold off to a Japanese company. it doesn't matter if the site is "US based"

the Japanese company and developers, Media Do, can celebrate holidays according to their own timezone. the world doesn't celebrate holidays according to America's timezone
