MyAnimeList 15th Anniversary Giveaway Event!

SAN DIEGO, CA – November 5, 2019 - MyAnimeList (MAL) is proud to announce its 15th Anniversary on November 5th, 2019. By celebrating this milestone, the founder of MyAnimeList Garret Gyssler and present CEO Atsushi Mizoguchi have commented:

"MyAnimeList was originally started as a niche hobby site and provided only a single feature: listing the anime you’ve seen. Now in its 15th year, with the help of numerous volunteers and passionate anime and manga fans, MAL ranks among the top most popular anime database, social media and of course anime listing sites. I’m excited to see MAL’s continued growth and am eager to take part in our continued goal to reach even more enthusiastic fans. Thanks to our amazing community, I know we’ll be successful in reaching out and engaging with the wider international world!"

Founder Garret Gyssler

"We are very happy to take part in this great celebration and we will do our utmost to keep our community growing with all of you and continue to offer you our best at all times. With the help of our most important MAL members, we look forward to even taller heights this year."
