    Its absolutely the second best. I'm amazed how it got so better in such a short time. If you don't want to use MAL, jump here. Unlike a old site like Anime-Planet where you won't find any hentai anime, advertise falsely as watch and read free everything and the active community is most 12 year old girls...this site is pretty user friendly.

    The scoring system, the layout and the customization are better in my opinion. Also it's easier to update your progress and sort your list. MAL feels clunky in comparison. I don't know about the social aspect since I abstain from posting in forums, but from what I've heard the mods don't admit more than one topic for each foreign language, which might put off some people.

    The people who run the site actually take the time to help you out instead of ignore you when you've lost your password.

    Better alternative to track manga, more manga are listed and some of the information present is not tracked by Myanimelist which might be useful for western users, better tags, etc.

    Count down feature, Tracking seasonal animes works better imo, Their android app is way better than MAL Official android app for now, and you can have its News widget on your home screen!

    Because this app is ad free, easy to use, has anime release countdown feature, know about the official platform to watch that anime and many more.
