Good thing that you people finally work on it, because I've ran into some animes that are pretty new, but already aired and they're still lacking pictures.

And I don't think there's any anime that I've watched before checking out what it looks like. I always want to make sure that I can stand that drawing style for 12 episodes or more.

I think this is a great idea. Now there won't be so many pages that are completely blank

Will you be doing this with Manga as well? That would be awesome if you would.

err, not sure if you've looked at the manga database, but we already put up an official volume cover with every single manga (except one shots, which don't have covers). that's how we've done it since day 1, there's no such thing as screenshots with them

The confusion is actually understandable, because there are quite a few oneshots in the db, thus one does encounter quite a few "no image" entries. In lieu of cover pics for these, I think it would be good to have some standard pic that says "ONE SHOT" on it.

the percentage of one shots to normal is extremely low

True, but even just 1% of 13,000 is still a lot. (13,000 being based on the "everythingwatched" acct, which has just shy of 11k "read" and just shy of 2k "reading" manga.)


I just did some reasearch here;
The "one shot" tag lists 1,780 mangas. Some of those do actually have a pic cropped from a page of the manga, but many don't.

Applying the "browse->no images" search to manga gets in 1,778 results.
"No images" + "one shot"= 841 results. Many of the remaining ~900 or so results have no tags at all, approximately 100 of those ~900 have "webcomic" tags.

Meanwhile, the "no images" search when applied to anime gets 2397 results. Which means that when looking at percentages, the anime had nearly 50% "no images" (again, based on the everythingwatched acct, which has about 5k anime marked), while manga has about 13% "no images". When looking at raw numbers though, there are nearly as many manga entries without images as there are animes with no images or just cover images.

'no images' is based on screenshots, not covers - anything with a cover will show up under 'no images'

anyways, this is an announcement thread for anime and he asked for something that exists for manga, so let's keep the discussion to the new feature or questions about it :)
