There are certain things about Asia that can be surprising at first. When my son was a young boy we would go to the onsen hot springs at least once a week, a fun way for a father and son to experience the togetherness the Japanese call “skinship.” Once he took me aside to ask me why another young boy who was in the bath near us had what appeared to be a blue bruise on his butt. This is the Mongolian Spot, and it’s a skin condition that affects Asian babies until the age of three or so. (My kids, being haafu, did not have this spot, which caused some concern during their health check-ups at the time.) Another interesting aspect of Asia is what’s known as “East Asian age reckoning,” which was the tradition of counting babies as being one year old at birth. The system was ended after WWII, but older Japanese still consider themselves to be one year old than they really are, and insurance documents ask customers to “write your age according to the Western counting system.” A version of this age counting system seems to be quite big in Korea still, where people’s “Korean age” (your age rounded up one, more or less) is quite important culturally.
What I’m watching just to catch anyone up to speed.

Nice to see you again Ani-Ladies and Ani-Gentlemen. I’m sure it’s been two long and arduous months for you without your (not so) regular blog posts, but don’t worry! We’re here once again to fill you in on what’s been going on with AniChart, AniList and our other pet projects.
In case missed our big announcement on April 1st for our new weeaboo dating site:
A few months ago I was working on a anime recommendation engine for AniList, as I know that’s the main feature everyone obviously wants the most. And I had a rather ingenious thought; what’s the one thing we as people, we as AniList users, we as anime fans, we as otaku and we as weeaboo lack… yes, its love.
Surprisingly the code for the anime recommendation works almost perfectly at finding an AniList’s users true love, so I gave it to the great Lemon, and he told me to fuck off… but eventually he set to work on the site, and what a site it is.
I am very happy to announce the launch of our newest Ani-project, an anime dating site for you all!
Weeaboo.Singles uses your taste in anime and manga to find your perfect match from the users of AniList.
P.s. I’ve now heard Matchai is already planning a proposal thanks to the closed beta service we’ve been running for the past few hours!!
We were very happy to see all the positive feedback. Many life-long couples were made that day, and we hope to see more to come. Unfortunately, I was rejected from my proposal. It turns out she was not too happy with my plans to recreate the harem from Shuffle!. I guess the recommendation engine still needs a little work in that regard.
Although we’ve been focusing our attention toward AniList in the last little while, don’t think we’ve abandoned AniChart!
AniChart now has a newly implemented “Filter Anime” field, which will update the website immediately with any filter results. The filter will respond to any query that is in the title, studio name, description or genre, allowing you to easily pin-point the shows that you intend to watch next season.
Lazy Loading has now been implemented into AniChart, which will speed up the site for users, making only the images on-screen load in the browser. As you scroll down, you’ll now be able to see images fade in, which will save you bandwidth and shorten the initial loading time.
Josh is now putting some time aside to work on a new visual layout and mobile-friendly version. So keep an eye out for beta access to updated AniChart layout. We’ll be making a post about it in all the normal places: Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and here.
AniList has had quite a few things added and fixed up in the last update. I hope you’re as excited as I am!
Simplified User URLs
You might find that remembering your friends’ user IDs is a pain, and we totally agree. That being the case, you can now use their usernames in place of their ID:
Both http://anilist.co/user/2 and http://anilist.co/user/matchai now direct to the same fantastic user.
New Settings Page
The settings page has been completely redesigned to allow easier navigation and access to all the buttons and knobs to personalize your account and your experience on the website.
One of the new settings that you may have noticed is the “18+ Content” toggle. This will now let the naughty users of AniList have access to the mature website content that was temporarily restricted, so you can now let everyone know what you were *ahem*… “watching” last night.
Keep in mind that some of the new settings that are marked with red exclamation points, like this one: , are experimental features that have not been completely implemented, and are only there for people who like to live dangerously. Those features will be explained in a future blog post when they are ready for the public.
New ‘@’ Community Feature
A newly implemented ‘a’ feature allows you to link directly to a user, while notifying them. You can use this handy new feature in your activity feed and forum posts.
My Airing Page
Want the look of AniChart with the personal data of AniList? We’ve now the new “My Airing” page, which allows you to see when the next episode of the shows you’re interested in are coming out.
You can check it out right now, by going to anilist.co/airing
Since the launch of AniList 6 months ago (holy damn!), we’ve been updating everything but the lists themselves. It was about time we got deep into the dirt and started working on the site’s most important feature, your AniList.
Let’s start with the most noticeable:
The new header is a highly CSS-cusomizable navigation bar that slides away when you don’t need it, making more room for the list itself.
The custom lists received an update, allowing you to hide a show from its default category (e.g. Watching, Completed, Plan to Watch, etc.), and only show it in the selected custom list(s), allowing you to make a more concise list.
Never was a fan of ordering your list by score instead of alphabetically? Well don’t you worry! We’ve now implemented a toggle in the settings for individuals like yourselves.
Shows that are currently airing will now have an “Airing” label on your list. Keep in mind that it is fully CSS cusomizable.
(Don’t remind me how behind I am on my anime…)
Rewatched and Notes Tags
Now, instead of having to search for the shows that were rewatched, or have notes, by clicking on them one at a time, we have included identifying icons that will label shows with relevant information.
In order to bring a more dynamic interface, we decided to opt for having less clicking and more responsive hovering, so you can quickly go through your friends lists and see what they have to say.
Although this is a minor change, we know that this has been bugging some of you for a while. Shows will now set themselves to completed once you’ve watched the maximum amount of episodes.
If you’re an AniList user who likes their list personalized and loaded with CSS, then it might interest you to know that we have added a whole bunch of CSS modifiers that make certain looks easier to get. For more information regarding those modifiers, check out this forum post written by Josh.
Super Secret Project
Our new AniProject is still being worked on, but it’s temporarily on the back-burner until we push out some more big updates for both AniChart and AniList.
There you go! Another wonderful bundle of updates! We’re always working hard to keep the site and database well oiled, so there will certainly be another post about site updates in the near future.
See you around the site!
