Could you make it possible to switch between Japanese and English titles of the series.

Often i have to look up the same title again and again, as i am not sure witch is witch, the main reason is that i dont recognize the title as they all are ehhh..... lets say Japanese to me. ;-)

If the title could be also displayed in English i would recognized it easier, i know most people properly dont have a problem with this, but the animation lovers that are a bit dyslectic have a harder time doing it.

Saki - The Nationals is a lot easier to recognize then Saki: Zenkoku-hen, or Space Brothers then Uchuu Kyoudai.

A option in the settings page "[x] Display titles in English" would be very useful to the people that have a hard time recognizing them.

    I quite like this idea.

    Unfortunately it might be a bit unfeasible due to a) I'd have to implement the ability to do this (not too hard); and b) it would be added work for me to manage titles. I suppose its not a great deal more effort than me merging titles already; but I struggle to find time for that as it is.

    I'll definitely try to fit this in; but no promises for now.

    In the meantime, I do my best to choose the most "common" names for titles that people use online; unfortunately these usually end up being Japanese. Also - if you do a search for the english name; this should always find the right shows (assuming I've done my job correctly).
