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 Onetime 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 Custom donator badge text on profile $10 Tier Custom donator badge text sitewide Super discord patreon role $20 Tier Sitewide animated rainbow donator badge A massive thanks to anyone who donates, we really appreciate it :

Sayonara no Asa ni Yakusoku no Hana wo Kazarou / Maquia [Spoilers / Discussion]
Hey guys, I wondered how do you feel about the movie? Was it exciting? Boring? Unusual? Thrilling? Share your opinions. Personally the story took me by surprise and at times I couldn't keep the straight face due to how the models were drawn. But I could still feel the emotions put into this movie. https://www..com/watch?v=KBZ2weTl4j4

Global manga feature, like Radiant.
There should be a search option for every manga that aren't japanese, chinese or korean: which is Global Manga.
Editing Activity History
I've been watching anime everyday for several days, but the "combination" function, or when you watch episodes of the same anime in a row, they combine, going from "Watched episode 6 of X" to "Watched episode 67 of X" are keeping my activity history from showing up on the right days. For example, I watched episodes 56 of Btooom in one day, one in the morning and one in the evening, but the combination happens when I watched episode 7 the next day, which screws with my history. It would be great if we could edit activity history or at least be able to turn the "combination" feature off on certain posts.
Help cure cancer! Folding@home
Folding refers to the process by which cells in our body fold proteins into various shapes and sizes used for many things around the body from creating enzymes to creating the collagen found in your bones and capillaries. Our favourite cells platelets use a protein called von Willebrand factor to stick to the collagen in our blood vessels in order to clot blood and prevent bleeding. Proteins play a vital role in our bodies 220 And when these proteins are mis folded it can result in terrible disease such as Alzheimer’s, cystic fibrosis, Huntington’s disease, and many forms of cancer I'm sure many of us have family members that have fought these dreadful diseases at one point in our lives. In order to fully understand how these proteins are folded and how this can effect the body scientist must perform millions of calculations, and finding the computing power to do so is very expensive This is where YOU come in In the year 2000 Stanford University started the Folding@home project. People would offer up some of their computing power in order to help scientists solve these issues. When thousands of people just like yourself work together and use their computers to solve these calculations it's almost as if a super computer is working on these calculations. By running the Folding@home software on your PC you can help solve these problems. You may think your computer may not be powerful enough to run this software, but you can fold with just about any computer, be it an old HP you have lying around collecting dust, a raspberry pi, to the most cutting edge hardware you can buy. The software simply uses your computer's processing power whilst it'd idling and runs these calculations in the background.
