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 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 :

Reccomend 1 single cour anime that the above user MUST watch.
This may be a bit more work than someone may want to do, but if you do play along I ask that you at least follow these rules . . . When recommending Single cour is typically 13 episodes or less, a show that would have aired throughout a singular season. don't recommend anything longer. If you are recommending something try to make sure you at least gave it an 8 or above . no one wants to watch trash. MAKE SURE THEY HAVEN'T ALREADY WATCHED IT look at their list beforehand. . . . When watching Obviously, if you don't like it drop it. When you're done come back here and give the person who recommended it your thoughts If you somehow can't watch something recommended ask for another recommendation or tell them you can't watch it. . . . Start with me
What is Anilist lacking for you to never look back?
I'm one of many who have turned to alternatives due to the unacceptable issues MAL has had over the past month. Anilist is so far the best website I have stumbled upon, and it has many features I prefer over MAL, however it also lacks some features that would truly make me not want to look back. One such example is the Recommendations feature, which I've seen suggested a few times, however I have seen no admin respond or provide any form of ETA. The lack of such feature forces me to go back to MAL when I want to see recommendations. Are the admins of Anilist sufficiently capitalizing on MAL's situation? What is Anilist lacking for you personally? What would make Anilist the best Anime website so that more and more people can come over? ModEdit: We now have an AniList Roadmap with planned features that you can check out here

Kaguya-sama: Love is War, I'm okay with this
Of course, everyone who has read the manga had been anticipated this anime since the adaption was announced, myself included. I really wondered how they were going to portray this great manga into an anime and my final verdict is.................It's alright. I'm uptodate with the manga and have been reading it for a long time now, so watching the first episode was really refreshing. The animation is really good but the opening was kinda offsetting so I can't say I liked it. They nailed the personality of and interactions between Shirogane and Kaguya and while their voices were similar to what I imagined they'd be, Chika's was a bit off for me but not bad . I can already tell that the anime is going to be really good. It's probably going to be about 12 or even 24 episodes long but most likely 12 and have sequels later on, depending on how good it does. The manga is really long so I wonder how many chapters they're going to adapt.

Plz No More Female Lolicons
Okay, um......I just want to say that I hope anime like these don't become a trend because I'm surprised that another one came right after. Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru was the first and only anime about a female lolicon that I watched and it was really weird in a cute way but sometimes creepy. I guess that Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru's female lolicon character was so popular last season that they had to give us more. The first episode of Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita was moe but still a bit weird and I'll tell you why. The main character is your usual runofthemill female neet who awakens as lolicon as well as her first? love for her little sister's friends in which both of them are in elementary school while she's a college student, ok. If you liked Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru then you'll like this anime too since they're kinda similar.

Two Factor Authentication?
I'm quite a big fan of the site, I love the sleek design and functionality in most cases. Sure, there's a couple things I'm still missing , but most of that I can survive without. One thing that does frustrate me, unless I'm completely blind and oblivious, is that I can't find any way to add another layer of security to my account. Why is there no 2FA support for apps like Authy? It's quite a standard feature at this point and the thought of losing my account like that has be worried. If I'm missing it, please let me know where to find it. I'll try to delete the post as soon as I get it enabled. Thanks for reading.
