This is genuinely the worst and most intrusive change I have ever had the displeasure of witnessing firsthand.

EDIT: Don't even care if its a prank. It has to be funny. This isn't funny. This is 100% something I would expect to see as an unannounced permanent UX change.

Thought it was real for a split second, maybe because the current review UI is already halfway there by hiding the score and showing a bunch of emoji.

Missed the chance to call something rated around 5 "mid" or have a skull emoji for very low scores
Objectivity? In my anime scoring? Of course not...

Needs a "mid" option. Still, I'm not sure if I like the change. Cut off for the lowest tier should start at 4.50, not 6.00. :CCC We were able to say most MAL users just had shit taste when the overall score of a peak anime was low. Now even MAL is encouraging the shit taste by labeling it as "Uhhh". :C Perhaps if the ratings were animals instead then it'd soften the blow so we can be MyAnimalList as I always suggest.

@kanarazukarasu It looks like older users fell for it too lmao

Ngl when I first hopped on to just check something rq and I saw that new rating thing I actually groaned. I thought I was going crazy thinking I was looking in the wrong place and was so confused why the rating was gone but so glad this isn't real lol I have to ask why this is up now though

@phantom346 pls realize this is a joke LOL unless you're just playing along with it 🤔

…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.

It was better last year 🐱 + when we could give 💯 instead of ten imo, but 🗻 nice despite most of fictions have it right now. It would also be interesting if something was added for character and people profiles.
