    Mangadex has links to Novelupdates and Bakaupdates on some mangas. It would be nice to see links going from Novelupdates to Mangadex and/or Bakaupdates.

    People who wouldn't read the novel version may read the manga because pretty pictures are nice to look at.
    People who want to read ahead of the manga most likely come to Novelupdates.

    Having the ability to go directly to Mangadex or Bakaupdates from Novelupdates would save time.

    If the titles of the series are the same, the ln I think it shouldn't be to difficult to put this in place with some level of automation?

    Titles are the same, so hopefully @Tony can give NU some love. :justabotheart:

    Titles aren’t always the same, which would make this feature even more useful. There was a comic I was enjoying and recently learned was discontinued after season 1. The name is completely different for the comic than it is for the novel…

    Edit: I just realized that I had it backwards. Oh, well..

    It's possible there are multiple titles to a single novel. Unless translations are super terrible... Can't help you there.

    That should be the case for majority of the stuff. The ones where it isnt so can always be reported or user filled afterwards.

    Sadly, Mangadex and Mangaupdates both have a weird policy that prefer titles in the original language instead of translated titles, so there are plenty of titles whose name doesn't match.

    most series on NU have the original title under alternate names, matching shouldnt be hard.

    oh well adapted to manga tag kinda help plus original title is enuf~

    that aside rather than link to manga imo better to link original source of raw~ so the takedown will be easier lul~

    honestly no
    let those mangareader crawl to NU for novel ver while novel who search manga ver crawl searching if such thing exist~

    Off topic, but any recommendations for manhwa? :blobsmile:
