For recommendations, they usually ask from a genres point, then ratings, then volumes. So I suggest we arrange a listing based on search engine:

Allow listings along multiple genres, so that they can get a list of manga fits their genres specifications

Along that line you allow to rearrange that list accordding to ratings.

And some like short and sweet while others prefer to break their teeth on multiple volumes. So you allow a rearrangement according to the number of releases of each series. While info about its original raws's volumes maybe incorrect and hard to check, info about releases are easy found and can be rearranged, right? For old finished manga you simply add a complete tag, as well as number of vols released (easily checked on lurk's bots).

Auto-recommendation list! With cherry on top!

I've used it a bunch of times already. I'll go thru phases where there's a particular manga I really really like but I've already read it all and I want something similar. Please keep it!

What might make the recommendation system more useful would be to allow users to rate the relevance with a thumb up and thumb down like we can with the comments. Still, it's a good start and I've already found it useful.

This sounds great! One suggestion I have is to have the yes/no affect comments overall, not just for the user logged in. So voting yes would make the comment stay on the first page longer, or bump it up, and voting no would bump it down. That way the one line "this is a great manga" comments can be filtered out and we can see more in-depth reviews. 8D

And, maybe put an option that lets you either organize comments yourself, or show what other users have voted, to keep the original idea?
