The site is currently in beta and is designed to be an interactive version of the current image-based anime charts.
The interactivity comes in the form of clickable links for anime, studios and external sites. The text is also copy-pastable and the sites colour scheme can be changed to your preference.
More information can also be shown by switching tabs, revealing info like Simulcast links, Original source, director and more.

Countdown to next episodes and other external site links (e.g. AnimeNewsNetwork, Anidb, Wikipedia etc) are planned features, along with more MAL account integration.

Thanks! Any constructive criticism is very welcome.

Wow I think it looks great although my only criticism is that the movies and ovas are not separated from the anime's

I think it looks very nice and well organized. I really like the black background and the font choice, it makes it more fun for the viewer/audience. I personally think it looks well-done (though I'm no expert). The layout is really good, it's neat and organized, it's easy to use for whomever visits it....I think one thing you might consider changing is the section titles (OVA, TV, Movie). You could make the font bigger, or you can change the color (perhaps red or blue), because as I was scrolling down I kind of missed it and got mixed up as to what was a movie, what was a TV anime, and what was an OVA. Did you write the descriptions yourself or did you take from other sources, or both? If you wrote them yourself, some of them can be a little more brief or more personalized to make it your own personal site or style.

Those are just my opinions after looking at it. I think I'm just nitpicking because overall I like the site, even if it is in Beta.

Thanks! I've made the font much bigger now, hopefully that will fix the issue, if not I will think about adding a border or maybe some colour. :)

No, I didn't write them myself, they are just from mal or animenewsnetwork - it would be nice if I could write them myself be the time that would take for every anime on there is just time I don't really have.

I totally understand about the lack of time. The descriptions are good the way they are, and while I said it looks more professional (like it came off of ANN or MAL), it does make it more official, so they are just fine :D

I think some color or border would really help, but see what other people think about it. I'm just one person after all lol. I hope I could was a little helpful.

would be nice to have like the different genres so say i wanted to find a mecha one i wouldn't need to search through all them i could just click on something which give me a selection of all the mecha ones. that would be a really handy thing to have on it.

Brilliant idea, makes you wonder why its not been done before considering all the image-based charts. I like that you're planning to do a countdown to next episode feature aswell.

The main issue I see is spacing between the white lines and the text, and between the sections (Movies/OVAs/Shorts/Etc).

I've added a tad more padding to those areas, hopefully that's fixed it - its kinda difficult for me to tell as I don't get that issue on my machine.


and between the sections (Movies/OVAs/Shorts/Etc).


Yeah, I've made the text bigger but I am struggling to think of a way to make it more clear without making it look crappy.

Thanks!
