How to Delete a Myanimelist Account? (Answered)

Myanimelist allows you to delete your account permanently from your profile page. Sometimes all you have to do is to send them an email. And once your request is successful your settings, device data, and location data in Myanimelist’s main user database will be removed. However, Myanimelist may retain some of your personal data for certain legal, security, and other needs.

The procedure for deleting your Myanimelist is slightly different depending on the method you choose. You can cancel your Myanimelist account from your account settings, or by sending a request that your account should be deleted to Myanimelist Help Center.
