MAL's policy is to showcase the Japanese release. Anime which premiere in another country earlier will bear that air date so that the entry can be opened for the select few that had the opportunity to see it. But seldom does anyone return to these anime and request the Japanese update date. Mods do requests people ask of them, they do not have a catalog of 'things changed in future'. They are after all regular people like you an me doing this for free in their spare time.

The reason the JP air date is used is because of the 1st database rule "1. The following entries are allowed in the anime database: Professionally produced, animated works created: in Japan for the Japanese market;". If a show never airs in Japan, then it was never for a Japanese market. The same applies for format, take the new Lupin for example which is a TV series and a Specials rather than just 1 TV series
and the new FLCL which is two movies rather than 6 TV eps each

The air date does exclude pre-airs and premiere-premieres even within Japan, limited time limited location entries are opened for these dates but are converted the the nation-wide release later. Many TV anime are like this, in one season sometime in the last 2 years there was over 15 shows that pre-aired in Japan before being regularly broadcast in Japan.

So even if you ignore the country issue for the anime you asked about, they wouldn't have those dates anyway because of their pre-air restriction. Know that most of MAL's database came from AniDB, it was copied when the site was created. So Jin-Roh is listed with that date since the day it was born on MAL because AniDB lists that date.

A long time ago the pre-airs were treated as the normal start date but with time it's become an absolute mess with anime companies trying to one-up eachother so MAL has unofficially tossed that guideline in the trash in favor of "biggest japanesyest nationwidest release possible, for the common nihon man" as the display date. I'd be great if MAL could get multiple aired slots like wikipedia. So we could have a nationwide Japan air date, a very first in the world air date, an online premiere date, a DVD/BD release date, etc.

Well I honestly don't know what the exact policy was for those cases but there definitely is one, but if you didn't find it in the Guidelines then it's probably part of the stuff that veteran mods tell newer ones. Active mods will be able to give you a more reliable reply tho. But it should definitely be consistent so something is probably wrong. Either always the japanese date or always the first screening. If that's not the case then either some mod made a mistake or misunderstood the guidelines and edited one or more entries while the others haven't noticed, or maybe there's some weird exceptions depending on the prestige of the film festival where it was screened and not all of them qualify for an 'offical' date. It could also be that there were always inconsistencies and they only recently settled on a fixed method and started editing some entries. You really won't be able to find out what exactly is going on unless you ask an active mod directly. Maybe try discord.

Sorry I couldn't help.

Ok, thanks for the answer!

Hey, thanks for accepting my request to join the club. I have a question though: can I vote for manga You Decide/Resurrection if my manga list doesn't have the required 100 completed entries to enter the club (only my anime list does)?
fastghosthunter Jan 7, 10:49 AM
I have a question about the You Decide threads. I read very little manga, so pretty much all my votes for the manga you decide threads will be abstained votes. Do I still have to contribute to those. My only real input would be the anime YD's

Someday I'll join the CAH fun. I'm actually going to be writing a review on By Night. I'll link it to you.

Wen is indeed a whore.
CodeBlazeFate Dec 26, 2018 10:05 AM
Yea Wen's a whore and he shan't win a game of CAH this time

How was your Christmas?

I don't rage much :D

I'll look it up. (i'll write more about by night if you want. It's a great novella)

Pffft, mal reviews as art? Suna, please. Yeah, the elusive Suna review continues to mystify people with its lack of existence :/.

Oh yeah, HR world. How's that going? Hope you transform the HR world into a more likable, useful department. Also, yay to games. I play so much Civ. That's probably my most played game. I recently got Frostpunk which (with similar concepts as Civ) is amazing. I've really been enjoying it and sinking enough hours into it. I played a little bit of Hollow Knight and it seems promising.

Interesting. Last good thing I read was my re-read of Bolano's By Night in Chile. It was for my discord server lit "club". We have yet to discuss it. I looked up Kaas. I don't see any translations (at least not on first look). Sad. What's so great about it?

Of course. Thanks for the rec. I'll check it out soon. I haven't been much into the anime lately. Though, watching Anne with a friend has been nice.

Just been working and traveling. reading a lot. The usual. How about you? Anything new with you?

Actually, the reason I wanted to join is to heavily criticize everything this club stands for, its ruling, membership requirements, and overall a heavily-cynical, almost elitist fog of stink surrounding it. The reason why I waited for your response first to accept me as a member of this washed-up poet society would be so that when the criticism arrives from my side I am not viewed as just another whinny kid who is angry because of the rejection.

Firstly, I find it laughable that one of the main requirements for a certain critic is to have a considerably lower (on average) mean score to be approved. Now, I understand that you are trying to make an impression that only people with an "advanced critical thinking" could join the club, and that you are trying to avoid the casuals who just happen to enjoy every show they come across, and have basically no critical approach whatsoever. However, I find it rather hypocritical that you don't have a lower limit as a criteria. This, I'm guessing intentional "laps", clearly shows that you would actually accept a member with an average score of 1.0, yet not a one with slightly above 7.0. I'm fascinated by the fact that you would rather approve someone who hates nearly everything this medium has to offer, but won't approve someone whose score doesn't quite match with your, very improvised and baseless limit.
Which of course, leads me to my second point, which would be that you value quantity over quality when it comes to criticism, in a sense that you don't really care whether the one's critical consensus seems valid enough, but rather that you accept any criticism AT ALL, as long as it's sharp. Laughable how you try to sell the weak talk about not being an elitist club when just your requirements show how much of a farce that statement is.
It seems to me that you fail to understand some of the most basic principles of understanding and valuing art (keep in mind that I'm not using the term criticizing here). What vastly surprised me is that you somehow have the idea, judging by the overly-complex process of the "way of putting a stamp of approval" you described in the Club Goals spoiler tag, that "true masterpieces" must be loved by everyone, as everyone gives them a high rating and majority agrees on them being UNIVERSALLY fantastic and one of the "upper echelons of their respective medium"... yet, in a statement not far behind, you said that one of the MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS was the ability to "rise above the hype and not give a rating of 10 to any show just because it is popular." Now, you may argue that the voted shows aren't popular, and that the quality is what determinates their status, but then why is the opinion of the club about the highest-rated shows of a greater value than of the majority? Because of the "membership requirements" that determine how valid one's opinion is? Farce indeed.
And then on the stage jumps in the elitism I mentioned before. And a rotten, cynical one it is. The one where the opinion of the majority on a global scale is of a lower importance and is categorized as "hype" and "popularity", yet the opinion of ThE cHoOsEn FeW is regarded as valid, "critically approved by the majority", and hilariously, egoistic enough to claim to belong "to the upper echelons".
I'm not a person who approves the opinion of the majority. What's more, I usually disregard it before I try to approach it and measure it myself. I understand that "the majority" is always on the average aspect of Gaussian Distribution, and that especially when it comes to understanding any form of art, the opinion of the majority doesn't hold much water. But that does not mean that improvised elitists have any rights to put their voices above the rest.
Have a good day.

Really liking Giovanna's character so far let's see where this goes.

You've actually dropped nothing thus far I am quite impressed.

It's just funny that due to my 0.07 (Bond?) I can't join.
