The Chrome app on iphones gives you the option to automatically translate as well. It does make the page jump a bit and sometimes cause buttons not to work though.

Oh does it? I didn’t know that, wow!

But then again Chrome is such a big app, I never have space in my phone :weary::joy:

I’ll continue with copy-pasting and translating :hugs:

F for respects. Do you have a phone you can increase storage on? Non iphones tend to have a microSD slot, so you can add quite a bit of space

No, unfortunately iPhone owner here (and one from 7 years ago which has only 16Gb :rofl::rofl:)

I actually need to buy a new one, so I’m thinking of getting a Samsung… Or just something not iPhone :stuck_out_tongue:

edit: The main thing I’ve changed in this update is to make the series identification code more accurate - and it seems this has its ups and downs. While digging around I discovered that e.g. Cells at Work: CODE BLACK (1, 2) is no longer being included because it only has a mangaupdates rating of 7.05, where it previously could skate in by being mismatched with Cells at Work! proper, which has a rating of 7.65.

Now that the series identification code is producing fewer false positives, I may relax the requirements a bit from next week. One other thing I am thinking about doing is also including anything which is known to be licensed in English - at least because it’s easier to find a parallel text if you like reading in that way.

Bonus manga for people who read the developer notes:

Touko (1986) - 0.00 - Educational

I have no idea if this is any good, but I am a sucker for both two-tone illustration and educational comics.

I’ve been having a lot of trouble lately pulling data from mangaupdates to update the notable works list (due to SSL issues), so I am trying out the anilist.co API.

Works get selected in if they are

  • whitelisted, or
  • have an average rating of 70 or higher, or
  • have an official English translation.

Anilist unfortunately doesn’t seem to have tags for “Award Winning” or “Classic Manga”, and it also seems that it has less material indexed, generally, than mangaupdates. This will mean some items that would have been selected in under the old system might get lost here (and likely vice versa). While this is a bummer, the setup is much easier for me to work with and it takes far less time to build the actual posts.

One last thing - the posts now contain fairly verbose tags. I believe these are user generated, and start showing up on the work once they’ve been applied 18 or more times. I find stuff like this useful in choosing what to read, but tags can spoil. I would be interested in hearing people’s thoughts on this.

Hopefully the next big change after this will be integrating Natively level and book club tags.

I really prefer having the tags, personally! I don’t read works that heavily center around heterosexual romance anymore, so it’s helpful to have a better indication if the manga contains LGBTQ themes. I think it’s also good to have some content warnings for triggering themes like sexual assault and suicide, which could be dealbreakers for people.

These types of tags aren’t really spoilers to me, since they don’t really give away specific plot points. I find this kind of information more helpful than genre when choosing whether or not I want to read something.
