    Not bad but one thing is probably not right here: I don't know what this site does or the product does... and I prrrrrobably should get the idea like after 10 seconds there.

      Toshocat is a desktop program that helps you track (and discover) anime/mange you've watched/read.

      I agree, it isn't super clear what this product is. If you have any more feedback I am all ears!

        I have a feeling that it probably makes a lot more sense to the target market? I'm with Milosz in that I don't get it, but I barely watch any anime (just Bebop and Sakamichi no Apollon).

        Nice and simple design though :)

          Thank you!

          Yes, before I released the site I made sure to check with people who are familiar with anime/manga, and they got it. I also tried limiting myself to only highlighting three key selling points which might be too little info for laymen.

          I think I should update the site with a small description below the hero text.

      I got it in 5 seconds. I used to watch anime so I'm much closer to the target I think.

      At first I wasn't sure, but after reading the title again it made perfect sense. I feel as though the target market would instantly understand.

    This is great! I'm a heavy anime watcher myself and though I currently use Taiga to scrobble, I'd love to use something as well-designed as this. However, I'm gonna have to wait for Plex web detection. Once that's integrated, I'm in!

      Will look into Plex scrobbling! I have personally never used Plex, but I've heard great things about it :3

    Hey, I just ran a quick five second test and on the whole about 12 out of 25 people got what the application does within 5 seconds. Link to results here.

    I think on the whole it appears that the page does an alright job of communicating what it does, but I think the use of the word "Notepad" is throwing people off.

      I'd second this, I track what anime I watch already but definitely not by manually maintaining a txt file using notepad. So initially I was vexed as to what you meant by tracking with notepad.

      Big thanks for doing this, Matt. I initially thought that the average anime watcher maybe used notepad, or something similar, to track their progress (I certainly did LOL). I think I was a bit too naive believing that.

      I'll definitely make some changes now that I've seen these responses.
