Many years ago, Anime-Planet launched a unique feature called the life on anime bar. Today, we're announcing a related "life on manga" bar. This bar only displays if you've marked any manga (similar to the manga rating/stats boxes on your profile) We've been somewhat hesitant to build an equivalent manga counter, because unlike anime, how fast a person reads a chapter or volume is subjective. But many of you have asked for many years, so we've launched what is probably the best approximation (but of course, chime in if you have feedback!) The current calculation is based on: -1 chapter = 5 minutes -1 volume = 30 minutes We don't have plans to allow each user to add a custom speed value, but it's possible to update these values if need be. The current values came from ample research (long threads on sites like Crunchyroll, our own community feedback, etc). Enjoy the new feature!
