I'd think it'd be nice to have a link to the manga's information page on the release - if someone sees the release - they might be more inclined to read it if there was an easy way to find out information about the manga and since the manga page has links to the newest as well as older scanlation and translation releases- it'd be easy for the person to get the download link from the manga page.
There should be the option to order the scanlations/translations/raws (in its respective tabs) by both chapter # and the default of date posted. - This would be especially nice since sometimes some groups release random chapters in random order or jump ahead and then jump back for the missing chapters. This would lead to ease of finding scanlated chapters.
Another option to have - in the scanlations AND translations tab for a manga page - sort by language - This would promote ease of finding a specific language for a particular manga. This way people don't have to scroll through the long list of releases for the chapter *cough*Naruto*cough* AND have to be looking at language.
If BOTH are implemented - language sort and chapter sort (this would allow reverse chapter sort so newest chapter goes on top) - this would make it easy for people to find a particular chapter in a specific language.
Another option to offer for Translations (though not as incremental to ease of use) would be to sort by particular translator AND/OR likewise for Scanlations- sort by group name
I noticed that you now show the rating on the top-rated manga tab (http://beta.mangahelpers.com/manga/top-rated/). However, I suggest that you show the rating on the page that you voted on so you can ACTUALLY see what the rating is for a particular manga and how you affected the rating since I would assume the top-rated manga tab shows ONLY the top-rated ratings and not ALL.
I also noticed that the top-rated manga page lists 'shounen/shoujo/etc' as demographics and in keeping with consistency, I suggest changing the manga detail pages and search page (http://beta.mangahelpers.com/manga/search/) to reflect this change- change 'genre' (which lists shounen/shoujo/etc) as demographics.
I noticed you didn't put yaoi as a 'genre,' and although I'm not really a fan of yaoi, I think that it's a great disservice to the manga fans. If you are aware of a manga poll done by mangaupdates which asked for the favorite demo- you'd be aware that the top 3 spots were yaoi (20.6%), shoujo (18%), and Seinen (15.8%), and you'd be aware that there is a large yaoi fan base and it'd be a great oversight to dismiss the yaoi fans and yaoi releases.
The shoujo-ai 'genre' is also missing.
