Today we've launched another preliminary change to the anime and manga pages, in preparation for the "full" redesign launch. We hope to have the full version, which includes a major change to the top area of the page, out sometime soon. The top of the page looks a bit... strange on empty pages (for example, obscure titles). But we wanted to get out the numerous improvements asap as a checkpoint to the full version. The full, pretty, amazing version is coming soon! This launch includes some functional changes, and many visual changes: Tag separation Tags are now separated from "trigger" (aka content warning) tags, in a section called Content Warnings. Trigger tags now have a minimal style compared to "normal" tags, but you can still hover on them to get the tag definition. OLD (manga: Killing Stalking) NEW Franchise separation Franchises are being completely revamped so that pages are less noisy. There's now an "other franchise" and "same franchise" tab. Other franchise links to the first item in other/related franchises. One good example is Dragon Ball. Mods have finalized some initial rules for this section and are slowly migrating content, so it will take time before every page is updated. We understand that on pages with huge franchises, this means there's a lot of cards appearing. We'll clean that up daily. Also, the infrequently-used feature to mark a series' status from the relations area has been removed for consistency with the design. **EDIT/NOTE** If you have comments about the relations feature change and your ideal "mark a franchise" feature, please read and reply in this thread instead. We'll read and reply to your feedback there - and things we've heard so far are summarized in that thread. We can then look into creating the sort of feature you're looking for somewhere on the site where it makes sense. New "card" view, bottom section of the page The entire bottom of the entry has been replaced with something close to the full redesign. Full width (no right-hand column past a certain point) More recommendations appear by default More videos appear by default A standardized "card" style with 8 per section A greatly enhanced mobile experience and appearance Feed section has been removed, but you can still access it with sub-navigation "No content" images and calls to action You can now love/hate (characters) or love (staff) from the card itself There's a new "Staff" page for anime/manga entries, as we only show a max of 8 on the entry homepage. Right now these show the same card design as the entry homepage. As we progress through the full redesign we'll look at new ways to handle these sub-pages. OLD NEW Other changes Other miscellaneous changes: The add to list/custom list widget has been shifted around a bit in the header area. This widget is turning into a button in the full redesign, and we might launch that ahead of the full redesign. The aggregated Stalled and Won't [Watch/Read] stats have been removed from the entry pages. You can still mark these statuses, but the aggregated counts no longer appear. This was a purposeful decision, as these stats are mostly irrelevant to the wider community. We do plan to launch "friend" info later on. Known issues Table view is a bit weird on some pages (such as the rating star widget being on a new line) The discussion area is full width right now - it shouldn't be, that'll be fixed first. Rather than posting bugfixes here, we'll do so in this bug thread, so please subscribe to it if you'd like to see what gets fixed over the next week. We'll close it after that. If you find other bugs, please do not post them here, post them in the bug forum in a new thread. Next steps We'll now immediately pivot to finishing off the top of the page. If you find bugs, please report them in the bug section (not here). Thanks, as always, for your support of Anime-Planet. We're really looking forward to showing you the full redesign!
