NEW! New releases and encyclopedia

We've added two new features for you to play with! The new releases page will show, er, well, new releases. From here you can add items to your wish list OR your new upcoming list. (You will notice that your "wish list" tab is now a "my lists" tab and underneath that are your "wish list" tab and the new "upcoming" tab.) You will be able to keep track of upcoming releases that you wish to buy. Currently, we are only receiving items from Tokyopop and Viz but we will be working in the future to bring you releases from other publishers.

Secondly, the encyclopedia is meant to be a grand source of everything manga and anime releated. We've added a bunch of stuff to get it started but feel free to add stuff as well. Mangatude members can add and edit entries. And don't just stop at traditional releases - Dojinshi and other items are welcomes as well.!

More new features!

Going on vacation or going to be away from an internet connection for a while? Use the new vacation notification feature. Just go to your "Profile" tab and set your vacation notification to "ON" and type a short message. People who make offers, reply, or accept your offers while you are away will receive your short message. Just turn it back off when you are no longer away. That simple!

Thank you to Zehr for suggesting this enhancement.

New features!

As we grow the trades will start to pile up. So, the ability to "file" away your old trades is now available to you! Once a trade is complete or abandoned you can click on the "file under old trades" link. This will place the trade under the "Old Trades" tab and out of your way. Some time in the future, we will add an enhancement that will have old trades age out after a certain period of time.

New features and new navigation!

We've improved the navigation and added new features to Mangatude. The improved navigation will allow you to easily jump from myPage to your profile, wish list and so on. The My Trades section is also improved to show the offers you have made, the offers to you, the status of your trades, new messages and the abilty to rate a trade once it is complete.

With the new features you will be able to:

Reply to comments in myPage. This icon - - will allow you to reply to any messages left in your myPage area as well as messages left in your friends' myPage area.

"Copy" your items. Want to trade 10 volumes of the same series but don't want to upload it ten times? Hit the copy icon - - on one of your trades and it will instantly duplicated. Just edit the new trade and change the volume #. Viola!

Delete, edit, or change the image on your items. This feature is not new but is made easier with the new delete, edit, and change image icons - that you will see pop up under your items.

As always, if you find any bugs, have any comments or suggestions please leave us an email at or leave a comment in Mangatude's page
