    It's been another challenging year, and we hope you and your family are safe and healthy. As we head into 2022, just wanted to thank our database moderator team who accomplished a lot last year, and also announce this year's challenges are ready for joining!

    New 2022 community anime and manga challenges

    You can now join three new challenges for 2022. Motivate yourself to watch anime and read manga, and compete with your friends, by joining our Anime-Planet community challenges!


    Database growth stats for 2021

    These images show our database growth stats for 2021 - thank you so much to all of our volunteer moderators who work daily to add your requests and other missing content!

    This image shows the total growth for info pages for the anime, manga, and character databases:


    Here's a breakdown of how many anime info pages were added to Anime-Planet's anime database. Donghua had a huge uptick this year!


    On the manga database side, moderators continued to add a great deal of information for webtoons and Chinese manhua, which are very popular in the Anime-Planet community. These combined types made up roughly half of the total manga info pages added last year.


    Here's a breakdown of what percentage of all content in our manga database are manga, novels (all types), manhwa (Korean manga) and manhua (Chinese manga), as of now.


    And a breakdown of how our novel info pages grew in 2021. Light novels were the highest percentage added, but web novels are close behind. Also see our Light Novels Database.


    One more manga database breakdown, this time for what percentage of our current info pages in the manga database are webtoons in comparison (whether OEL, Korean, Chinese, or the rare Japanese webtoon)


    Finally, a fun stat about how many BL and GL manga info pages were added to the database. We hope everyone has a Happy New Year!

    Woow, What a MASSIVE!! difference in between BL and GL . XDDD

    ... also I just discover, AND LOVE IT! :-p) the thing you have a LN (light novel) separate Data Base page.
    ... But I would like too, if you do split the MANGA list, into two Manga/manhwa/manhua - Light Novel/WN/Novels.
    Making it 3 list, instead just 2 as it's now.

    That's just the real difference in how many of them are made. Girls' Love is not anywhere near as big as BL in Japan.

    If you're a GL fan, remember you can help improve those numbers by submitting titles we don't have so we can add them!

    I think having the reading challenge go by volume or chapter rather than by series would be better!! That way one piece isn't counted the same as a one-shot.

    There are also a number of fun forum challenges you can participate in to help you get back into the anime-watching spirit, like Anime Bingo, The Eleven Deadly Sins Challenge, and the Anime Lottery.

    Woow. Well, I don't know, A) coz I don't live in Japan. Neither I speak often with Japanese people ... even less with BL Fans. hehe. :-p
    But if you say that is as it on the stats here... Wooow. I am trice surprised!. XDDDD

    Iee, Chigaimasu. Not, I'm not a big GL fan. So with the number of GL in the DB and my really poor Nihongo ... I dubt very much I could be of any help.

    m( _ _ )m Gomen nasai.

    +1, this is an interesting point, so it will apply to Metantei Conan too, and few (lots ??) more Anime, not to mention several more Manga/manhwa/manhua.

    I mean, this definitely shouldn't be the case, mods here have strict guidelines about how/where to get info and we generally pride ourselves on accuracy.

    Can you elaborate more about the types of errors you're seeing? Generally speaking we'd appreciate if you could please let the mods know here: https://www.anime-planet.com/forum/forums/manga-submissions.106/ so that they can update
