Website Edits and Updates
Below you will find a timeline, from most recent down, of all the updates I've made to the site (since I started tracking, anyway). This can be anything from a new page to simply adding anime to the site.

Fall '22 Anime Added
I've added the anime in this latest season (Fall '22) and some others than I found on Netflix. With this update, there are now 1800 anime on the site! That's a crazy number. Have a great day everyone.

Random Anime Spinner (4.1.3)
Introducing the Random Anime Spinner! I've had a few people email me about making a more fun way of selecting an anime, and this is the first attempt at that. The spinner holds up to 20 anime and will randomly select one after you hit spin. The spinning varies in speed to add in some randomness. There are still improvements that I want to make, but I figured it was best to get it out into the public to see if people enjoy it. So, give it a whirl!

Custom List Page Update / Donation Modal (4.1.2)
I've updated the custom list page to now open a modal where you can adjust your view/language (previously just dropdowns on the page), as well as re-generate your list, or generate a new one. The form will pre-fill with the options of your current list, and you can change them from there. I've also added a donation modal to raise awareness, it will only display to returning visitors once every 30 days.

Spring '22 Anime Added
Just quick update - I've added all anime from the Spring '22 season. I've also added a few new Netflix anime, as well as a couple that were suggested to be added. That brings the total anime on the site up to 1741 :) Have a wonderful day!

API Re-Build, Minor UI Fixes (V4.1.0)
I've FINALLY got done with the API work; it has been completely re-written. I originally wrote the API using Lumen, a framework based off Laravel. However, once I entered testing...I found that it was incredibly slow. The response time was wildly unreliable. So I wrote my own stripped down version, and it's much better now. I've also made some minor UI updates to hopefully improve the UX. The most 'visible' change will be in a custom list, you'll notice genres that match your included choices will be bolded.

Anime Links Updated
Good news! I've recently gone through and refreshed all of the anime links. That means there shouldn't be any broken links, but I can always miss some. I finally have a dedicated admin page for editting links, so I should be able to update them more often. I figured this was necessary with the migration Funimation is doing into Crunchyroll.

Winter 2022 Anime Added
Been a while! I've been keepin' busy, so sorry for the slow updates. I've added a list of suggested anime, as well as this season's. That brings the anime total to 1710. In this update, I also removed some anime. I decided that an anime must exist on both AL and MAL, which ended with me removing 7 anime from the site.
January 3, 2022
Happy new year! I've made some small updates regarding connect links in the footer. I've also added Patreon as an official way to support the website.

Generator Form Re-Factor (V4.0.4)
Happy holidays! I've updated the generator form for the first time in quite a while. You will notice that there are now range sliders now, and that the dropdown menus are more concise. I've also added a new filter option: watch links (under advanced)! I hope you all enjoy the new look.

Minor Search Update
Updated search functionality to be a bit more forgiving. If you omit a space, apostrophe, or something, your result should still come up...hopefully.

Editted All Entries
Editting and updating entries based off new information. Done in batches over several days.

New Custom List Generation (V4.0.3)
An email from a user a while back had me thinking about the way I created my randomized lists...so I re-did it. In the past, the way I was storing these lists was expensive, so I only stored lists for 14 days. I've found a new, more effecient method. Now, lists will be stored for 30 days after their last view date. So, only visit once? It'll be gone in 30 days. Repeatedly visit a list? It'll always be there.

RED/Entry Popover Fixes (V4.0.2)
I fixed a minor bug in the entry popover where if you started to vertical scroll, then motioned left/right, it would close. It will now read the initial motion (vert or hori), and only respond to that. I created a check for the RED, as it appears a caching issue is keeping it from updating consistently.

Summer 2021 Anime (and others) Added
I know. I'm late. But, they're added now! I've added all of the summer 2021 anime along with a few others. With this latest addition, the total anime on the site is now up to 1650! Closing in on 2000!!

Entry Popover Update (V4.0.1)
I added a close button to the bottom of the entry popover that will appear after scroll. This button also provides basic instruction for closing. Hopefully...this will improve usability on the popover. Also, moved around some assets server side.
