Support AniList & AniChart (Donations)
Why do we need your help? AniList & AniChart currently runs out of pocket, and is run by volunteers. The sites are free to use, but adsupported, however ads don't make enough to support the sites and we don't want to fill our pages with countless ads that can ruin your experience. Your donations will allow us to cover our server payments and keep the sites running long into the future. With more donations we'll even be able to hire a full time developer to work on improving and adding to the sites consistently. Why don't you make a "Pro" account with more features instead of relying on donations? Simply put we don't want to block features from users who can't afford to pay. We don't have any features in the pipeline that would cost us more to run, and we feel restricting features that don't cost us any extra would be wrong to our users. What do I get for donating? As we don't want to restrict features from any users, donator rewards are largely either sentimental or cosmetic. As we implement new features into the sites we'll be sure to think of more things we can offer to our donators . The minimum donation amount is $1 but please check below or the Patreon for specific rewards at this time, onetime donations will receive equivalent rewards for the same amount of time . Monthly donations or Single donations We'll be incredibly thankful for any donation you can give, tho recurring monthly donations will allow us greater financial stability in the months to come. If Patreon isn't your thing you can also do monthly donations via PayPal. Donation Rewards/Month $1 Tier Donator badge Discord patreon role Test out beta features before everyone else $3 Tier AniList & AniChart ads removed Custom profile colors $5 Tier Animated Gif Avatars Increase your genre, tag, voice actor, staff, and studio stats from 30 to up to 100 cards Full stats update every 12 hours Custom donator badge text on profile $10 Tier Custom donator badge text sitewide Full stats update every 6 hours Super discord patreon role $20 Tier Full stats update every 2 hours Sitewide animated rainbow donator badge A massive thanks to anyone who donates, we really appreciate it :

Symphogear XV Episode 12 Discussion
Really solid episode We finally got to see best girls Amalgam form and Shemha's plan taking action. Also the three monsters are now presumably dead, which in my opinion was better than redeeming them. What was your favorite scene/moment from the episode How do you think it all will end next week?
Fire Force - Episode 8 Discussion
If you didn't drop after the last episode, you should probably drop now. This episode was pretty fucking bad. I'll clarify with some details: The villain is absolute shit. Extremely cringe, no development, entirely unlikeable. Villains don't have to be likeable, but if you're going to make your audience hate your villain, it should be done intelligently rather than simply creating a psychotically deranged character. The final scene was so predictable, the show telegraphed it from a mile away. The entire episode was just a giant pile of tropes and had basically no original ideas or storytelling to speak of. The way Maki gets the shit beaten out of her without resisting *at all* when she is also a capable fire soldier, where her opponent is literally just kicking her without using any powers at all diminished her character to *nothing* more than a damsel in distress, when previous character development suggests she's *more* than just that. It's incredibly sad to see characters diminished to the oldest tropes in the book in a way that actually breaks from how they were previously established. Honestly, I've never used this word to describe a scene in anime, but this scene seemed very misogynistic to me. I cringed into the next dimension watching it. The anime's tasteless contrast of incredibly childish/immature characters and incredibly dark, disturbing imagery is absolutely disgusting. It can't decide what it wants to be and what audience it wants to appeal to it's like putting mustard on oatmeal. Don't get me wrong, this *can* be done properly , but this show *does not* do it right. Nonexistent themes, garbage character development, inconsistent plot, etc. E.g. the villains introduced several episodes ago haven't been mentioned or considered by any of the characters at all. The show introduced them only to have everyone forget they existed. I have no idea what the show is trying to say, because it's literally saying nothing. The closest thing to a theme is "don't give up, be a hero", but that theme is stupid even for shounen and was only really a central focus in two episodes, so I have no idea to be honest. Random introduction of "insects" these come completely out of left field, aren't believable, and serve no purpose other than to achieve a gut reaction in the audience. Wasted screentime with meaningless dialogue and incredibly obvious stalling. etc. etc. etc. The whole thing is just incredibly bad.

Notification for anime added to the site that are linked to what you saw (how to get rid of them?)
Hey, I don't know if it is recent but I now get quite a lot of notifications for new anime added. If there is a way to disable that I would be happy to know how. Otherway please make one. There is nothing under "notification" menu in setting : https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/577071021992050714/625674827214356508/unknown.png So if there is a way I don't know maybe it would be more logical to add it there ?
Toggle to change the Stats -> Overview -> Read Year data
I don't really mark when I start reading something which means that the section mentioned in the title doesn't really work as intended for me. I do, however, mark when I finish a series so I was wondering if it would be possible to add a toggle or something in Settings or wherever else to make it so that the Read Year tab took the Finish Date instead of the Start Date as its base when calculating the data it needs. This section if it wasn't clear
My 64yo mother just finished Diamond is Unbreakable
Hello everyone,, JoJo has always been close to my heart. Watching Phantom Blood with my roommate, screaming at the screen and throwing popcorn at Dio's treachery, is one of my fondest memories. My love of Joseph Joestar and the camp of Stardust Crusaders led me to name my first band Hermit Purple. I fell behind on Diamond and knew that I had Golden Wind to look forward to. To that end I was binging to talk about JoJo on my anime podcast and my mom and brother come by to visit for a week. I'm about to change the program and my mom tells me to keep watching because she thinks the way everyone poses and how they are dressed is interesting. My brother comments on the color scheme changing so much. They pick up on the murder mystery aspect of it. My mom was thrilled at the idea of the killer, the face swapping power of one of the stand users, the tension of not knowing who was capable of what, and Rohan's frustrations. She laughed out loud when she heard the Japanese VOs saying Highway Star and Cheap Trick. I know JoJo doesn't need any more hype than it has but for anyone that hasn't given it a try yet know that the love for this series is real. It's way more than memes, though JoJo also has the best memes
Re:Stage! Dream Days♪ Episode 11 Discussion
