Thank you for all your wonderful submissions and votes. We are very happy to announce the following winning designs, chosen by the MAL community!

New Templates

These brand new list layouts were the top three most-voted designs in the contest! These winners will receive an official MAL T–shirt of their choice and one year of MAL Supporter.

  • Dungeons & Dragons

    Dungeons & Dragons

    created by Half_Bl00d

    Layout based on the Monster Manual and Character Sheet for Dungeons & Dragons 5e. Grid-type list with large images, that can fit all data (columns) and adapts based on which columns are turned on. The grid itself as well as the other elements adapt based on the screen resolution, so it's usable both on smaller and larger screens. Adapted for manga list as well.

  • Blackout


    created by Valerio_Lyndon

    A dark and futuristic take on the regular anime list, with a completely redesigned page layout. The list itself is highly dynamic and should adjust to any configuration. This theme works great with vertical cover images, perfect for displaying posters or characters!
