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 :

[User Feedback] Clarifying what recaps are allowed and the inclusion of recuts into the AniList database.
Hello Everyone It was recently brought up internally that some of our moderators wanted to add a handful of entries to the site or didn't think we should be rejecting them. One such example is the TV recut of the movie trilogy "Wave Surfing Yappe". Due to how allowing the TV recut of the movies to be on the site would be an expansion of what we allow on the site, it was discussed different ways that we might be able to modify the rules on this and other potential entries that might fit within the same framework. We felt it would also be a good idea to publish this for the sake of getting feedback on holes in the logic and hopefully improve the new rules before they go live. What I am looking for in this thread is hopefully people are able to point out examples of titles we will still be excluding from the site or titles that we will now be making eligible for entry on the site . I can’t promise that every complaint will be feasible to address and I can’t promise that the guidelines will not be further locked down in the future but I am hoping this can help solidify them a bit than if the mods were the only ones to discuss them. So with that out of the way, we are looking to change: https://submissionmanual.anilist.co/criteria.htmlrecaps The Recaps section will be read as follows: Recaps are only to be added if they are a recap movie from a TV/OVA/ONA series. Warning: the same warning that is already there Other than the aforementioned format change, recaps are also accepted under the condition that they are intended as part of the series’ total episode count. Examples Example 1: the same example that is already there. A new section will be added titled “Recuts”: Recuts Database Criteria Recuts are defined as alternatively cut anime, for example a director cut of an anime. Recuts are only to be added if a sufficient amount of new material is added to the work. A sufficient amount of new material will be generally defined as any of the following: A movie that has an additional 10 minutes of runtime For a series with episodes that are 15 minutes long, at least 50% of its episodes must have at least 2 minutes of extra content. For a series with episodes that are between 15 and 5 minutes long, at least 50% of its episodes must have at least 1 minute of extra content. For a series with episodes that are Warning: Early screenings are not permitted even if they splice multiple episodes together. Warning: An English release splicing/combining episodes together does not justify adding the English release to AniList. Warning: Extra content needs to be more than just continued panning over stills or other generic content that may contribute to an extended runtime. Examples Example 1: Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni and Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni. There is an additional 30 minutes of extra content added to the Sara ni Ikutsumono movie. This is justification for it to be added to AniList Example 2: Wave Surfing Yappe and the Wave TV series. Given that they have different OP/EDs and that the movies do not appear to simply be prescreenings, both versions are permitted on AniList. Example 3: Haruhi and Haruhi . Haruhi was a release of 28 episodes of anime, 14 of them being new, and 14 of them being released in 2006. The 2009 release not only credits the 28 episodes as a continuous run of episodes 128, but future releases have typically followed this as well. There has been some discussion about tying the amount of new content instead to "% of total runtime" or "% of episode length" instead of a hard value for a given episode duration. This is something in particular I am hoping to maybe have examples given that might help iron this out. Thank you everyone for reading this and I look forward to your help in this matter

Unwanted wasted movies and confusing titles
Binge watching Dragon Ball Super and I just got the part where this https://anilist.co/anime/20778/DragonBallZResurrectionF/ actually happens I find it to be pointless to even watch this movie at all since they already have the Dragon Ball Super Episodes for it entirely. This movie honestly isn't worth to even exist at all, all the money put into this movie is a damn waste Not only that but the title is also confusing, how or why in the hell there's a Z instead of Super in the title? In the middle of a single arc already aired in the series they decided to make a movie showing the exact same shit but they wanna put a damn Z and not Super, Who in tf gave this a fuckin green light? And that's not even it, but also this shit here https://anilist.co/anime/14837/DragonBallZBattleofGods/

Yuru Camp season 2 vs season 1
In my opinion, I do not think Season 2 is all that great compared to season 1. Season 1 made my top 5 animes YET season 2 I am on the verge of dropping. Anyone else feel like this? It feels like the comfy levels have been significantly lowered as well.
