I was wondering if there's a script (like the awesome ComicVine Scraper) to scrape data for manga in it's original form (in Japanese that is)?

I've started entering the data manually but it's a lot of work so any form of automation would be a huge timesaver!

So far I've found scrapers for US comics or manga scraper in English, so I was wondering if there's also one in Japanese?

Thanks in advance!

ComicVine scraper will likely support manga from the AnimeVice database one day.

AnimeVice stores their data in nearly the same format as ComicVine (probably because both websites are owned by the same company.) The only problem right now is that AnimeVice doesn't provide public access to their data the way ComicVine does.

Also, that still might not be what you're looking for, since I don't think AnimeVice is in Japanese.

I was just thinking the same thing. Maybe using AnimeVice DB and mangaupdates DB will have better effect. Because AnimeVice doesn't have DB of Korean, Chinese and French manga.
