    RandomAnime.org Review

    Hello fellow designers and coders.

    I'm here today to ask some advice from everyone and anyone, all responses are appreciated. I only ask that any criticism come in a constructive manner, telling me something sucks doesn't help me improve. I am interested in improving myself in every aspect of my career.

    Today I want you to take a look at a pet project of mine, a niche site. It's doing very well in the search rankings, but I want to turn my attention more to design and functionality now. I would love to hear all opinions about the interface, though it is simple, and also thoughts on user experience.

    Websites Objective

    This websites sole purpose is to assist those who want to find a new anime show to watch. It simply selects shows based on the filters given in a random manner, and then returns information about that show such as: Title, description, trailer, and where you can watch it.

    Potential Improvements

    -News page. I am working on expanding my niche slightly to include news from the anime world. I am already working on the functionality that will take source from Crunchyroll, reddit, and others (giving credit of course).

    -I want to add relevant news to the anime landing pages, but also want to avoid cluttering up the interface. This is something I've thought about, but have yet to start working on. I figure it would be nice if you could see the latest news surrounding the selected anime series.

    Problems

    -The interface is simple, and unprofessional. In a way, I meant for it to look like it is. It's meant to be simple, easy to use. However, I can't help but feel that it could use some improvements. Suggestions welcome.

    -Maxed out my niche. As of now, I've about maxed out my potential gain from my niche, which is why I am looking to expand. I am top 3 in all of my chosen key phrases, which leads me to desire an expansion into similar niche topics (Anime News for example).

    I appreciate the time you took to look at my humble website. Please report any problems that you may have. Thank you once again, I look forward to hearing from you!

    I found it hard to use, because it is not clear what is clickable and what is not. And playing a video automatically is never a good idea.

    I agree with hiitsme about problems with visibility what is clicable and what is not. Also you dont have navigation bar in your header (top of your page), footer nav is 3 links so its hard to navigate your website (at least for me).

    About news and your concern about cluttering up the interface ther is a lot of ways to avoid that. For example showing only 5 latest news with a button under that leads to page with "more news".

    For me its okay..
    It's just not user friendly and not catchy..

    I will be bored by just staring at it..

    Advice:

    Make it lively.. Improve your design..

    **EDIT**

    For anyone who is still interested in providing feedback, I recently pushed out an update on the site Thanks!
