This database has been incredibly helpful to me as I've worked to make as many Wikidata items as possible for mangaka (Q191633) useful and intelligible to Westerners, even without running it through Google Translate, and I don't even speak Japanese. For example, this is the first resource I consult when trying to determine a creator's gender (information not always provided on Japanese Wikipedia pages, at least not in a way translatable by Google Translate), denoted by corresponding pink and blue icons. It also includes Romanization of names, birth/death dates, pseudonyms, and creator social media and web links, all clearly discernable even with virtually no knowledge of Japanese. Also, I've noticed a slight imbalance in Wikidata properties relating to anime/manga towards Western (especially English) language sources, and this would help address that imbalance.
