The description looks good to me. Might also want to mention the supported languages.

Is this still a problem?

About policies:

https://developer.chrome.com/webstore/program_policies
https://play.google.com/intl/en_us/about/storelisting-promotional/metadata/

We don't allow apps with misleading, irrelevant, excessive, or inappropriate metadata, including but not limited to the app's description, developer name, title, icon, screenshots, and promotional images. We also don't allow user testimonials in the app's description.
Here are some examples of common violations:
① User testimonials
② Excessive details
③ ④ Misleading references to other apps or products
⑤ Repetitive, excessive, or irrelevant keywords
Here are some examples of inappropriate text, images, or videos within your listing:

  • Imagery or videos with sexually suggestive content. Avoid suggestive imagery containing breasts, buttocks, genitalia, or other fetishized anatomy or content, whether illustrated or real.
  • Language inappropriate for a general audience. Avoid profane and vulgar language in your app listing. If it is a critical element of your app, you must censor its presentation within the store listing.
  • Graphic violence prominently depicted in app icons, promotional images, or videos.
  • Depictions of the illicit usage of drugs. Even EDSA (Educational, Documentary, Scientific, or Artistic) content must be suitable for all audiences within the store listing.

Here are a few best practices:

  • Highlight what's great about your app. Share interesting and exciting facts about your app to help users understand what makes your app special.
  • Make sure that your app’s title and description accurately describe your app’s functionality.
  • Avoid using repetitive or unrelated keywords or references.
  • Keep your app’s description succinct and straightforward. Shorter descriptions tend to result in a better user experience, especially on devices with smaller displays. Excessive length, detail, or repetition can result in a violation of this policy.
  • Remember that your listing should be suitable for a general audience. Avoid using inappropriate text, images or videos in your listing.

I used these text and screenshots:

As I assume,

  1. The first screenshot contains an unacceptable anime picture of a sexual nature.
  2. The second screenshot contains registered trademarks - Google, Yandex, TinEye.
  3. The text in description contains registered trademarks - YouTube, Vimeo. ("- Embedding player to YouTube and Vimeo links.")
  4. The text "Vichan, TinyIB, LynxChan, FoolFuuka" may be banned due to connection with 4chan/8chan and other dangerous sites.

I think the most likely cause were the images containing thumbnails of risque nature. Thus, the rule of "excessive details" was violated. I don't think that trademarks or the board names were a problem. Well, maybe "FoolFuuka" could be misunderstood.
