CraveOnline Buys MyAnimeList.net

PaidContent.org is reporting that “men’s entertainment and lifestyle site” CraveOnline.com has bought MyAnimeList.net, “an anime and manga community that introduces you to people. anime and manga”.

I haven’t been able to find a second source to verify it, but I trust PaidContent.org. I thought it was a little weird at first because on a quick glance, CraveOnline.com looks like a less horny MaximOnline while MyAnimeList.net is about as basic a website as you can get. The only images on it were in a banner ad for something called Mabinogi, “a MMORPG without limits”. However CraveOnline has a comics section, so I suppose there could be some overlap.

CraveOnline is owned by AtomicOnline, which also owns SheKnows.com and TeenCrunch.com. Either of them would seem to be a better fit than CraveOnline, so I am interested in why PaidContent.org stressed the CraveOnline connection.
