Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access MyAnimeList - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Having Problems with Accessing
Kraig Amundsen · 25 February 2014 - 04:34

I can't seem to get on the site at the moment, even though it says that MAL is up and reachable. Whenever I try to get on the site, it says that there was a connection failure. Is this happening to anyone else?

Bruno Choco · 20 February 2014 - 10:56

I Cant acess any page of myanimelist but here it says that is UP and reachable. The website is probably down just for you...
I already restart the pc and nothing... what do i do??? (damn it)

Daniel Rodriguez · 20 November 2013 - 23:53

i can not log in! it says "Cookies must be enabled to log in" and i check my settings but it still does not log me in and i even changed my password?!? i keep having this issue?

Silvana Schuhmacher · 24 September 2013 - 14:18

Hope its still a maintenance... Would be bad if they are down again for days ._.

Michael Trix · 24 September 2013 - 14:16

This just in from the IRC: MAL down for maintenance. Should be back up within the hour

「Anime & Manga Universe」 · 24 September 2013 - 14:15

Aww it's down again D: Like this anime page please :) 「Anime & Manga Universe」

Robin La · 24 September 2013 - 14:14

Well, MAL isn't working again. If you're looking for a back-up, then try AniList ( ). They can import your MAL list to their website, and also supports decimal ratings. There aren't many members at the moment, and it would be great if more of you could join, even if, just to back-up!

Kyoko Amemiya · 8 September 2013 - 08:09

Well it's good that MAL is back, still cant work properly though... It won't let me log in, i try many times :c //sigh

Yanique Grant · 8 September 2013 - 04:39

STILL having problems. whenever my laptop is on standby or if i come off the site for a while i would need to log in again...

Harley Taylor · 6 September 2013 - 07:47

Site is back up but it's not working properly. everytime i leave the page fo a few minutes it logs me off. then i have to try to log on atleast five times before it lets me actually log on :@ so annoyinh

Adrià Rico Blanes · 6 September 2013 - 01:43

It seems the hacker deleted random images from the site..? What a shame.

Sly Hato · 5 September 2013 - 22:23

still cookie problem... went to the site, i was logged in on my panel, i click on my list and poof im logged out :L

Sly Hato · 5 September 2013 - 17:54

having the cookies problem too... it threw me out 3 times already, have to login again every time

Cylk Chu · 5 September 2013 - 17:51

This damn thing still doesn't work for me. I deleted my cookies and restarted my browser three times.. And still nothing :

Dalinh Ly · 5 September 2013 - 17:27

am i the only one having the cookies problem? it says "Sorry! We've had a problem keeping you logged in.Please clear your cookies, close your browser, and try again to log in. Thanks."

but i've already cleared my cookies 3 times + restarting the browser, and it keeps popping up when i try to update my list >.

Jordan Hogben · 5 September 2013 - 16:44

Didn't realize how much i relied on this website until now, can't imagine why anyone would want to DDoS some anime site though.

Alina Grundmeyer · 5 September 2013 - 16:12

I dunno myself. You can go and ask the admins in the MAL IRC ( if that's their real account. But i'm pretty sure it's not fake.

Danny Mariano · 5 September 2013 - 16:07

All we can do is allow the admins to work it out, unless anyone knows who the hacker is and is willing to kick their ass, the best thing to do is be patient and wait it out.

Alina Grundmeyer · 5 September 2013 - 16:05

You guys should always check MAL's twitter account for any updates and the current situation:

Nathan Nguyen · 5 September 2013 - 16:00

It's back up.. well for only 15 minutes xD
then back to reload page =3=

Scott Cavender · 5 September 2013 - 15:58

I can ping MAL but and it has a decent ping but it is running really slow for me right now.

Naota Nandaba · 5 September 2013 - 15:54

Stop trying to enter MAL for a while, I think that is the excesive ammount of people trying to get in at the same time.

Elven Cheng · 5 September 2013 - 15:40

longest week ever, didnt realize i used MAL so much. For everyone complaining/worrying: they're doing their best.

Macro Gil · 5 September 2013 - 15:29

I managed to log in and look at my list before it goes back down again. I think it's safe to say it will be solved and alright.

Yliana Torres · 5 September 2013 - 15:14

0o0oo0 managed to get to my list while it was up for .2 seconds; now i know where im at in my shows yeeeeeee

Luis Romero · 5 September 2013 - 15:10

It was up for me for like 3 minutes and then it just went away, but I am glad I saw my list one more time, at least now I know it is safe and I hope that the rest of your lists are fine as well.

John Roder · 5 September 2013 - 14:52

It was up, look at down time: ~3min. I was able to make 3 posts or so :)

Viktor Andersson · 5 September 2013 - 14:29

For all of you that have MAL in your phone, i noticed since the app doesn't rely on MAL server yet it's connected, i could just copy my whole list from there into a document on my pc, though i had to write every title for itself, couldn't copy paste since on 2 different platforms :( there are probably 200+ animes in there ;_;

Jim Matthews · 5 September 2013 - 14:02

Successfully added ratzjm to queue at position 11174. Since MALgraph processes about 10 users per minute, this shouldn’t take more than 1118 minutes.


Anas Aharbi · 5 September 2013 - 13:57

I found 2 websites has some features similar to MAL you might wanna rely on it for the I current time ( -, check them both and see if you like it or not

Michael Jones · 5 September 2013 - 13:32

My thing is that I'm a completest. How will I know if I've watched every single OVA and ONA now? No one else bothers to list them all (especially the ONA's). Come back, MAL, come back. You're breaking my heart!

Yanique Grant · 5 September 2013 - 13:18

This just reminds of when playstation network was hacked. It was down for over 3 weeks. 2 days they said it was gonna work. Please work soon! I've had enough of having to wait and use my tempory list on my laptop which isnt up to date

Lysanne van Montfort · 5 September 2013 - 13:14

at least I can view my MAL updater to see where I was with everything, but I guess I'll have to update later...

Kaśka Ashi Sorycz · 5 September 2013 - 13:04

It's kinda funny how much most of you depend so much on mal that you can't read/watch anything and are whining like little bitches. Grab a random manga/anime and just write it down so you won't forget to update your list later. Idiots.

Talon Robello · 5 September 2013 - 13:03

where art thou MAL? where am i supposed to waste all my freetime now? D;

Mark Davinciko · 5 September 2013 - 12:45

"We're still working on bringing MAL back online. Currently exploring alternative 3rd party solution to mitigate the attacks"

Yep, they're getting Clouflare, Arbor, or something like it that offers DOS attack prevention.

Ivan Mishinov · 5 September 2013 - 12:32

I just finished one of my series and i want to start a new one but because of the sonofabitch that hacked MAL i can't. I will find the bitch and rip his balls off

Hime Crycho · 5 September 2013 - 12:17

I've been sticking to only watching anime on Crunchyroll while it's been down since they keep up with what episode I'm on in my animes. I realized how reliant I've become upon MAL :\ If they said Thursday morning it should be soon.. right?

Marco Tritschler · 5 September 2013 - 12:17

sad thing.. always some asshats and trolls offending till they get banned and then raging around.. sure that guy is some hardcore mal user.. i'd even bet that guy is in the mal irc -_-

Amphibrach Perekosobochilo · 5 September 2013 - 12:15

What about site mirroring? If there would be more sites it would be much harder to ddos them! Also, after all this attacks malgraph looks kinda stinky...

Akito Dana · 5 September 2013 - 11:57

"Since MALgraph processes about 10 users per minute, this shouldn’t take more than 1047 minutes."

David Myrick · 5 September 2013 - 11:53

If you need to see your list go to and type in your username. While it can't update like usual, it still has the stuff from before so you can see everything.

Seerious Nublo · 5 September 2013 - 11:50

Justin Leach How the hell can you stop a DDoS attack except by banning all the individual IPs? If they aren't even from the same ISP there's no other way..

Akito Dana · 5 September 2013 - 11:38

I wonder who will back up there list and move on to another site after or if MAL comes back online

Kees Van der Menen · 5 September 2013 - 11:23

I hope i dont lose my list if thats the case then i will probably i will give up on mal because its too much voor me to search everything again anyone knows if Mal updater software works?

Elsie Gregg · 5 September 2013 - 11:19

I knew I should have made a back up list. if it comes back, I'm definitely going to have to make a back up list...

Sly Hato · 5 September 2013 - 11:07

getting pretty sick of waiting... even if they are working on it, dont tell us it will be up around thursday morning pst if it isnt

~Alex-chii* · 5 September 2013 - 10:24

wow o_o already 2 days, since I last had connection to the site... how long will it take?... Need to refresh my Anime- And Manga-List ;^;

Adi Adrian · 5 September 2013 - 10:17

damn this is getting annyoing any new updates regarding the site's status?

Jacob Roberts · 5 September 2013 - 10:02

people forgot their is daylight savings time so here is the reall time in pst

Daniele Boh · 5 September 2013 - 09:52

I hope that coming back soon, this site is irreplaceable. Pray together ;__;

Justin Gray · 5 September 2013 - 09:50

Don't be afraid of losing your lists. There have been several comments from mods stating that the lists are fine, besides if you lose them, not all is lost, just use the wayback website and it's likely they'll have your list - perhaps not completely up to date but it's likely it'll be at least from the past 2-3 months.

For those who still want their list even when MAL is down you should get MAL updater after this little mess gets taken care of. Of course I can't update my list but the program keeps the list updated from the last time you logged in, so you can check it out even when MAL is down.

Yuki Meyer · 5 September 2013 - 09:47

does any1 know when MAL should start working? I really want to use MAL again :(

Akito Dana · 5 September 2013 - 09:39

It will be sad if we loose our list. I've seen way to many to remember thankfully MAL helped me keep track of things.

Remigiusz Wawryniuk · 5 September 2013 - 09:09

Ppl, dont panic, and if you dont know what time is it (PST) :

Fokje Zandstra · 5 September 2013 - 07:53

They said thursday morning PST so that'd be before 12 PST. Let's hope it's up by then. Only now do I realise how much I rely on this site.

Sly Hato · 5 September 2013 - 07:47

what do they count as thursday morning pst .__. according to the internet its almost 8 am pst..

Adrià Rico Blanes · 5 September 2013 - 07:41

"MAL will be down again until Thursday morning PST, sorry everyone :("
Still down.. TT

Firouzeh Emam · 5 September 2013 - 07:34

i hope this problem will be fixed soon... It's been almost two whole days T^T

Shirley Landewee · 5 September 2013 - 07:11

I hope Mal is back soon. I hope their fixed it so fast as Possible. Because I need Mal !!!

Marcus Screamz Melson · 5 September 2013 - 06:09

When is it going to come back on -_- been like this for a few days... its my main site where i get all my animes from

Judit Stettner · 5 September 2013 - 05:34

You can view your and others' lists and various stats on MALgraph:

Chandra Askew Martin · 5 September 2013 - 05:19

Wasn't it a DDOS attack that also took down a while back? I don't think Demonoid ever recovered.

Justin Leach · 5 September 2013 - 04:46

Anyone know how I can get ahold of the head people of MAL cause I learn from my Air Force Tech School how to fight against DDoS attacks I might be able to try and help get the site back up cause it being down for so long is starting to annoy me please shot me a message with the info

Amphibrach Perekosobochilo · 5 September 2013 - 04:32

I'll would use MAl anyway, any surrogate which want to get a bit of fame on this incident is completely suck. Also, sore losers who hacked mal is just a bunch of... losers!

John Moon · 5 September 2013 - 04:10

Step 1. Disable MAL
Step 2. Advertise your site by "MAL is down but we're not"
Step 3. Get your new users, unaware of fact that you are that pissed them off by disabling MAL
Step 4. ???
Step 5. Profit

Samantha Stargazer Lynn · 5 September 2013 - 03:23

It's likely that MAL faced a DDOS attack... come back to life, please.

Kaśka Ashi Sorycz · 5 September 2013 - 03:06

@Fleur Kronfeld But how can we believe it's not you? Maybe you're just saying that it's not you while in reality it is you. Or maybe it's me. I'm certainly laughing at most of these comments. But I think that it's not me.

Fleur Kronfeld · 5 September 2013 - 02:54

I'm suspicious. There might be some hackers lurking around, reading all these comments and laughing. Heck! It might even be me... But it's not me.

Sandra Keehl · 5 September 2013 - 02:36

I feel empty without this site, lol, it really takes a long time for them to fix it:(

John Londy · 5 September 2013 - 02:01

Why don't they block the IP's which are flooding the site or even the country?

Sam Victor David Evans · 5 September 2013 - 01:46

DDOS attacks are really annoying since they spam the original soures with complete random infomation causeing the system to lagg and collect irregular infomation preventing actually needed infomation to be processed. unfortuantly this form of phlashing is f#!king anoying...

Ahmad Mdl · 5 September 2013 - 01:38

This is fun. I mean looking at the bright side, we finally get to see the glorious faces of the people of MAL, and it seems not everyone in there are traps!

Luis Martin · 5 September 2013 - 00:09

Wow!! It actually works, that girl actually is helpful, Now I can watch myanimelist again! Thank you Diainita

Dianita Macias · 5 September 2013 - 00:03

Hey guys!! I discovered a way to use some of the features of Myanimelist!! Here is the link:

You can watch all the page exept for the flash stuff, and Im not sure if you can log in. But at least is something. Its a recorded archive from the page in August 05 2013, Its kind a backup copy of the site. Sorry for what I wrote before, I really dont know if is it for sale or not, Im just very impacient and upset for the issue, thats all. But check the link, you can find even other sites right there. Just put the link on the top of the page and then choose the aviable dates of record. See ya

Cruz Gonzalez · 4 September 2013 - 23:45

@Rino, SSJ Master is the hacker and Xinil is the creator of MAL, when SSJ Master hacked the last time, he changed the names of some anime into SSJ Master vs Xinil. And since this is his second time I guess, that's why it's "season 2".

Zack Reed · 4 September 2013 - 23:22

This is getting f#!king stupid. How long does it take to fix the damage of a low-level scrub hacker. Basically just troll hacking. The incompetence behind MAL is ridiculous.

Phillip Stafl · 4 September 2013 - 23:10

I need myanimelist ;_; I don't know how many episodes of any Series i watched :O

Mason Rossignol · 4 September 2013 - 22:06

Meh, why would someone want to mess with MAL? Thankfully Google has plenty of cached copies of the pages, so at the very least we can check out info. Wish I could update my list though :\

Kyoko Amemiya · 4 September 2013 - 21:25

Is been almost two whole days... MAL still down :c
Damn it hacker! you seriously have no life huh?

Haley Milan Sember · 4 September 2013 - 21:08

These hackers need to knock it off. I really am at a loss without MAL. ;w;
It's ben down for like two days... I have so much stuff to update. >.>

Rino · 4 September 2013 - 20:40

Oh my..Oh my... Actually what the point of attacking this site ? Haiz.. .Annoying hacker. Anyway what dafuq is SSJ Master vs Xinil Season 2 ? New anime ?

Mira D. Reina · 4 September 2013 - 19:55

Welp this sucks, I have never found anything like MAL to find anime. Without it Im pretty useless in finding something to watch.

Xuesos Ivanovich · 4 September 2013 - 19:43

Heh well damn, it was funny when he changed the anime names but this is a bit annoying. SSJMaster 2 | Xinil 0

Also, how the hell is he even doing this? If it's just a DoS attack, MAL would have him blocked in no time. But where would he get the people to do a DDoS attack? Maybe he spread some virus during the first hacking attempt that allows him to make people's computers spam MAL without them even knowing.

Wilson Lu · 4 September 2013 - 19:38

if its the ssjmaster guy i swear he/she needs to get a life. he/she gets banned from the site so as revenge he/she hacks it 2 twice in the span of 2 months.

Alejandro Rodriguiez · 4 September 2013 - 19:29

actually it would be season 3 Alex Brandenburgh as this is the 3rd year its happened due to this guy

Aaron Jensen · 4 September 2013 - 19:16

This is true but if they host their website then they can set their router only to allow a certain number of packets from a specific computer at a time. Using a botnet would get around this though. There are some things that can be done but when it comes to a DDOS, usually not much can be done.

Jake Schlottmann · 4 September 2013 - 19:03

So THAT'S who SSJMaster was?! I was wondering what happened to a lot of my anime...

Mark Song · 4 September 2013 - 17:44

Where is the Hebrew version of MAL? Perhaps you can access a foreign version of MAL.

Aj Reyes · 4 September 2013 - 17:31

When will MAL start running again. I mean my profile's there, and I've been here for 3 years.

Talon Robello · 4 September 2013 - 17:31

Dammit all i wanted to do was check which ep i was on. now i gota play the guessing game -___- is this all because of that damn hacker? it was bad enough the BBcodes were down but this just sucks >:O

Michael Jones · 4 September 2013 - 17:20

@Arnold Melendez - I can't speak for anyone else, but during the brief time it was up today my list was just fine, so it will probably be OK.

Arnold Melendez · 4 September 2013 - 17:16

guys on it says that MAL will be down again until Thursday morning. Does anyone know if our accounts are safe from this attack or should i be worried ?

Michael Jones · 4 September 2013 - 17:15

From the IRC channel:

"MAL will be down again until Thursday morning, sorry everyone :( "

Ryan Pratama ATz · 4 September 2013 - 16:53

Got the same problem as osu! (a few days ago) apparently, might be the same person behind all of this mess

Alex Daw · 4 September 2013 - 16:41

The servers just start for a brief moment and then everyone tries to get on at once and it just strains the servers therefore the constant crashing. Well thats just my theory of why the servers keep going on and off all the time now. And just a heads up, I am aware that there was a DDoS attack.

Anna Weberg · 4 September 2013 - 15:51

Its Been down for the past 3 days for me. Killing me cause i cant remember which episodes i was on..

Emma Nicole Germanotta · 4 September 2013 - 15:46

Guys, they posted a thread, the website keeps going down but it works at times. the thread says:

"Yesterday at around 9:50am PT, MyAnimeList was the victim of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks from an unknown and malicious source. We've been battling this every minute since and are doing our best to put blocks and fixes in place so that we can get the site running back at 100%.

If you know anything about the attacks, please contact us at If you are the attacker, please contact us at and let's talk.

We have worked tirelessly to bring MAL back online. If more attacks occur, we may have to go offline again in the future and it may be ongoing for a number of days. We would like to apologize in advance and hope you understand.

We are sorry for the trouble and hope everyone can stick with us as we continue to work through this issue. Thanks for being a part of our community!

Jared Bartley · 4 September 2013 - 15:45

It's back up for me right now. Haven't been able to access it for a solid day so hoping it stays up!

Kelli Rau · 4 September 2013 - 15:43

Bummer I missed it being up. I really just want it to be up long enough for me to export my list so I can have a back-upon another site in case this happens again.
