New reviews added! Check out the recent posts for linky goodness for reviews for Black Butler, Skip Beat, Little Butterfly, Diamond Girl, and more! Thanks to Kate for doing some data entry recently! We still need people to add manga series and review links to the database, so drop me a line if you’re interested.
Also have added a bunch of review links over the past few days for series like Wild Adapter, Your and My Secret, Stolen Hearts, and more. Check the recent posts lists for links!
I do need some help with data entry! If a handful of bloggers would take fifteen minutes to a half hour a week to add links to their reviews, that would free up some of my time to work on site improvements, adding entries and reviews for older series, etc. Drop me a line if you’re interested in helping out. I’m not going to stop updating the site, but I’m running into a bit of a sustainability problem.
I continue my march through the Manga Views review database, adding new review links! Take a look at the recent reviews for Karakuri Odette and Ikagami the Ultimate Limit.
Also, there’s a new blogger profile up for Dave “Manga Monday” Ferraro of Comics and More. Check it out!
I’ve also filled in a ton of reviews from A to E. Many of the titles that just had one review link as a placeholder now have 5+ review links, so I hope that will be useful! This month is going to be extra busy for me, so while I’ll still update the site as I can, I’m not likely to have time to do a huge block of data entry until next month. I’m planning on going through all the manga in the Manga Views database and adding additional links eventually. If any bloggers out there have time to add their own review links, that would be great!
We have our second blogger profile up on David Welsh! We’ve been adding new links to reviews every week. Did you know that Manga Views has a RSS feed? Add http://www.mangaviews.com/rss.xml to your feed reader and you’ll be notified every time there’s a new story posted to the front page of the site!
We’re going to try to start featuring more original content over on Manga Views, and one feature that we thought might come in handy was manga blogger profiles. We’ll promote different bloggers on the front page of Manga Views each week. Would you like to be profiled? Fill out this handy form and we will feature you and your blog!
If you want to keep up with what’s going on over at Manga Views, I have a blog over there where I post about site updates and improvements. I’m happy to see so many people registering and using the site. Our manga review list has gotten so long, I switched it to a paginated format. Not all the manga on the list have reviews yet, but we’ve got a great structure to build on. I think we started with only around 25-30 individual manga in the system and probably 50+ reviews for the manga. Now we have over 150 manga and I think 200+ reviews.
I thought I’d highlight a couple manga pages that have multiple reviews so you can see how the site works to collect opinions from different manga blogs. One title that captured a lot of attention when it was released was Black Bird, and we’ve collected six reviews for it. Critical darling Children of the Sea has seven reviews you can browse. I’m hoping that collecting these reviews will be useful as we will continue to add more content. I often find that when I’m looking for manga reviews on google or another search engine I end up having to filter through a ton of scanlation sites in order to find a couple reviews, so I’m hoping that Manga Views will help to provide a central place to find reviews from a variety of bloggers.
