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 :

unpopular opinions
Just a thread to list some unpopular opinions you may have about anime/manga/characters/ etc. I'll start: I don't like Himouto Umaruchan, and I don't think Umaru is cute
Activity History not showing up
This past Friday , I watched an episode : 500 But it's not showing up in my Activity History: 500 It seems like sometimes there is a disconnect between when a show is dated for the Activity feed and the Activity History grid. Sometimes when only one show is watched it doesn't register to the grid?

Fairy Gone - Episode 2 (Release Discussion)
So it was definitely smart to keep expectations low, I am certain this is the first time I've seen a P.A works series that was centered around heavy action , I have been inactive for 2015 till Fall 2018 season so if there were any shows from P.A works between those years, never saw or heard of it/them. What is a lot clearer in episode 2 is the storyboarding and directing, in general, seems to be unsettled, at times it is very noticeable that it is jumping from A to B frantically. We got to see a bit more info about the fairies, normally they are implanted but Marlya seems to have gotten her's naturally, more so, it chose her. And thus far, her fairy seems to be more sentient as its more focused in defending/protecting her and acts accordingly on its own at times. And we also saw that there are different types of fairies with different abilities, they are very similar to that of JBA stands. This episode was sort of a retelling of episode one, but this time, centered around Free and a friend from the past in Wolfran. We get to see some backstories, a little segment about their last meeting and Wolfran at graves of his loved ones. I think the two factions here are going to be the type where by law, one is right and one is wrong, but morally it will be up in the air. It is hard to imagine that Wolfran and Veronica are paired with the mafia to score some coin. Seeing the episode count locked in at 24 episodes is kind of worrying, this is definitely out of P.A works comfort zone, its an original series and the budget seems fairly modest, only time can tell. Visually, I am not at all too bothered by the CGI, and this is coming from someone who really prefers shows without it, it's not as bad as people are making it out to be, like making your eyes bleed? Some people are massive edgelords. There are worse examples from other shows. Besides that, I quite like the art, backgrounds, color palette even the soundtrack is good, while it's not within the themes of the show, it is still good and heightens the feeling of specific scenes in where it plays. It continues to throw a lot at you, I guess little by little, questions will be answered. What did you think of the episode? Favorite scene/moment? Enjoying the series so far? What do you expect or want to happen next?
Gunjou no Magmel - Episode 3 (Release Discussion)
A story of regret while touching on some grey areas. I was hoping this episode would touch on the little hints of an actual narrative from the previous one but I guess we are going to have to wait might not ever come. What happened to that guy's friends was messed up, honestly, I'd put them out of their misery personally speaking. At least he did some good deeds, in the end, putting his money where is mouth is. What did you think of the episode? Favorite scene/moment? Enjoying the series so far? What do you expect or want to happen next?
Midnight Occult Civil Servants - Episode 3 (Release Discussion)
So our protagonists got out of that dire situation. Kohaku is a god of mischief who leaves destruction in his path, he's able to cause chaos and war to entertain his curiosity. This Ae no Seimei had to be one hell of being to have the respect of someone like him. Now the big question is, who did Kohaku deal with? The answer will bring Kyouichi a step closer to finding out the truth about his sister's disappearance. What did you think of the episode? Favorite scene/moment? Enjoying the series so far?

AFTERLOST - Episode 3 (Release Discussion)
Ok, so this episode was both interesting and confusing. We got more information about Tamashi as they are the will, unfulfilled desires, and dreams and the one that our protagonist dealt with here is Yuna's from the idol group she had so much regret that her Tamashi took the form of a world where things played out in an infinite loop, a moment where she regretted not taking stage after she learned that the idol groups destiny was to disappear and Yuki and Geek helped her to play out that dream of performing with her fellow Idols. The big twist came at the end when Yuki was confronted by her brother and in an attempt to save Takuya, she explodes with power, to the likes of what the Lost explosion looked like . This is the confusing part. On another note, this episode's art and animation were a lot better, less CGI compared to episode 1 and 2. What did you think of the episode? Favorite scene/moment?
