Adds type, genres and other info to entries tags. Can also delete all current tags.
< Feedback on MyAnimeList (MAL) Tags Updater
Also, could you make it so the score tag only grabs the first number so it would be easier to sort through anime?
- English dub tag: sounds like a bad idea, especially for anime like Afro Samurai, which originally was dubbed in English. Anyway checking voice actors is not an option, since it will require fetching a lot more data, hence the number of browser requests and time of tags updating will be increased A LOT.
Currently the script parses all necessary data from Pictures tab (e.g., http://myanimelist.net/anime/1292/_/pics), since this tab seem to have as little unnecessary information as possible in comparison to other tabs, so the pages can be loaded and parsed VERY FAST. If you have an idea how the English dub can be checked from the Pictures tab, feel free to let me know.
- As for your second request, I added a new option 'Rounded Score'. Grabbing only the first number doesn't look like a good solution, for example the score 6.97 should be considered as 7, not 6. I hope you agree with me.
I do not believe that changing it from pics to /characters/ would have much of an impact on performance since both /pics/ and /characters/ use 2mb of data(or at least thats what my browser says). In fact, I noticed little to no difference when changing it from pics to characters. Noted, I wasn't as precise as milliseconds but I noticed no difference as far as full seconds.
2mb? The script doesn't download the images.

As you can see, changing pics to characters will decrease the performance, and it's not worth for a simple tag nobody wouldn't even use, imo. Sorry, but the answer is still no.
English dubbed anime isn't that hard to find, by the way. There are a lot of lists, even on MAL.
For example this club: http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?cid=807
When using this script https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/7905-myanimelist-mal-series-highlighter it's easy to see which club relations are already in your list.
Tag for dub
I would like a tag to check whether or not anime have a dub version. This can be done by checking if there are english voice actors in the anime staff list.
