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 :

On a movie hunt mission, any recommendations?
Most of the movies I come across that are highly rated are related to a series. The rest are all relatively low What's a movie you think I should watch? Make sure it's a standalone please. Here's my humble list of movies I watched. : 450

Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta... Episode 9 Discussion
Poor Geordo, he thought to be alone with Katarina.. but it was just a farming session with everyone :D Mary has a dangerous plan.. they would probably be executed if try to to run away. So that's how Katarina got her maid. It's nice that she was saved.
Endro~! Episode 12 Discussion
One of the best possible endings. Yusha no longer has the responsibility of slaying demon lord. Mao no longer has to destroy the island, and can live in peace now with the maid. The mystery about chibichan still unsolved. Brings me back to the episode where they want to make chibi the leader of the party. Funny when he was trying to stand on two legs. xD 8/10 Endro music cd that I ordered from japan arrived. : Music is crisp and clear to the ears. Yusha and friends have cute voices. box opened 500
Princess Connect! Re:Dive Episode 9 Discussion
nice in a way this feels like a Kokkoro episode. ^^ hmm, she's not familiar with swimsuit. Well, but her princess costume already sort of looks like a swimsuit at the top. That underwater scene at the end was simply beautiful, looks like this anime is going the Kokkoro route? Karyl alone planting rice in the fields, didn't expect her to take it seriously. Good cat. : And of course, nice to see vice captain Saren and her maid again. Some new girls introduced as well.

Looking for Anime Recommedations
Recently, I've been running out of things to watch. Can anyone give me some recommendations? I'm not really looking for any harem or ecchi type anime, something with more of a story. It can be from my planning list if you'd like because I'm not sure what to watch from it Edit: If you could give a general idea of the plot without giving too much spoilers and why you like the anime that would be great :
Recommendations ( Romance Anime )
Pls help me out :D I need some recommendations for the AWC "Genre Challenge: Romance".
Thoughts on studio change for Attack on Titan Season 4?
I see a lot of people freaking out over the change from studio WIT to MAPPA for the final season of attack on titan, but if the recent trailer is any indication of what the quality for what the season is going to look like, I feel they did an equal, if not BETTER job with it than WIT. What do you guys think about the studio change?
"Herbivore" males in anime
Herbivore men or grasseater men is a term used in Japan to describe men who have no interest in getting married or finding a girlfriend. The term herbivore men was also a term that is described as young men who had lost their "manliness". What do you think about this type of characters in anime? Do you think they are used just to preserve the "purity" of the female characters? I personally can't stand this type of main characters in anime, to me they are just an annoying overused trope.
