Yeah it's because of stupid inconsistencies in the API. When I load the user/news feed, the user data is given, but without the number of minutes watched. Same thing happens with anime data, I get given most of the information, except for trailer id, cover image url, so I have to make an extra request to patch up the missing info, it's so goddam annoying. Hummingbird V3 can't come soon enough
I'll get around to fixing it later tonight.
