So I just finished adding genres to all the anime on my website Anime Gauge.
It took awhile because I had to do it manually. One by one. I also followed Beocat's suggestion and used Anime Planet genres instead of MAL. Anime Planet just categorized anime better.
With that done I can now build an "anime suggestion" feature for my site. I have a vague idea of how it should work. But I would love to hear from you guys.
Currently I'm thinking it should go like this:
A user can put in anime that they like, for example I type in: Death Note, Case Closed
And it would suggest a list of anime similar to those two.
You can also type in genres, for example I type in: Isekai, Slice of life, Ecchi
And it would come up with a list of anime that are like that.
So do you think that's a good enough anime suggestion thingy? What else do you think is missing?
