Anime-Planet was created in 2001 as the first anime recommendation database on the web, and many people use it to date to figure out what to watch next (based on looking up a specific anime and seeing what other users recommend). Now that V4 is out the door, our goal is to make Anime-Planet an even better resource for figuring out what to watch or read next, including other types of recommendations and suggestions. We'd like to still prioritize the user-contributed recs, but also plan to offer other types of suggestions you might personally enjoy. Today we've launch a V1 of one type of suggestion, and will launch some other types of suggestions very soon to join them. Now, on the anime homepage, your profile (under the ratings area), and a new personal suggestions page, you can see a set of anime that you might like. This content is based on what you've marked and all of the user recommendations in the recommendation database (so keep adding recommendations on the site, since users will see them via the personal suggestions page too!). V1 is very rudimentary and only filters out recs for titles you've rated a 2 or below. We'd like to launch a set of user preferences sometime soon so you can filter all suggestions further - for example, 'only show suggestions that are rated higher than [x]'. We also plan to implement weighting on the suggestions based on the tags you've marked loved or hated - for example, we'd prioritize showing you series that have tags you've marked loved, and deprioritize ones with tags you've marked hated. With any suggestion, the tooltip provides an option to 'want to watch' (like on the watch online page, the season page, etc), or 'not interested'. Not interested means we won't show you this title again in any of the suggestions sections - you will continue to see these in the user recommendations for certain anime or manga. Clicking either option will remove the suggestion dynamically and show you a new one. You can also opt-in if you'd like us to add 'not interested' titles to your 'won't watch' list. To do that, go to your edit profile page and choose the second option from the Personal Suggestions dropdown: Anime automatically marked 'won't watch' using this opt-in feature will show up in your feed and will be auto-shared if you've opted in, just like you had marked it yourself. Upcoming updates (asap timeframe) Random loved tag anime (ie, "Horror anime you might like") - a random list of anime tagged with one of your loved tags Related anime you haven't marked - a list of anime related to stuff you've marked, that you haven't marked yet A new 'Recommendations' landing page from the main nav to showcase this type of content, instead of just linking to 'recent recs' A similar set of suggestions for manga We have lots of other ideas, but just wanted to get this V1 version of one type of suggestions out the door first. Hopefully this initial feature will help make the user recommendations more discoverable, and look forward to many new updates for this in the future!
