My New Anime/Manga Characters Birthday Interactive Dashboard

One of the more popular posts on my site is a list of 1850+ anime and manga characters’ birthdays. However, it is a static list. You just read through it and remember what you can if you want to analyze it beyond looking up information for reference or curiosity.

Today, I just turned that list into an interactive dashboard (building off a database) where you can SEE the information in so many more ways! It shows distributions by months, days, groups of characters in series, etc. It also makes it easier for people to see what I’m missing, and also have wrong, to help me improve it! I’m sure I can crack 2000 characters one day soon… and cover for the 5 days during the year without a character birthday when some have over 30 characters sharing birthdays!

Unfortunately, I had to put it on another blogging platform, as I will have to with all my Tableau Public “viz” creations because WordPress doesn’t allow for JavaScript. I understand why they do it, but it’s a limitation I can’t work with in blogging about these creations directly. I hope you’ll have a look and see it, maybe even give suggestions for improvements!

Of course, with this set, I can now create something similar for any large set of birthdays for any group with something in common. I’m seeking superhero birthday sets, for example, but I can do famous athletes, actors & actresses, or anything you can think of with birthdays… or even death days!

Know of some such data sets? Please let me know in a comment! Thank you!
