What is AniDB?

AniDB stands for Anime DataBase. We feature detailed information about all forms of CJK (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) animation.
Why should you use AniDB?
  • AniDB is not-for-profit (no ads, no spyware).
  • Your privacy is important to us!
  • By fans, for fans!
AniDB is shaped by its users, and is constantly evolving. Our content is constantly kept up to date, with revisions coming straight from your user input. With your feedback and suggestions, new features are brought to AniDB. Your participation will transform AniDB into the most informative anime database on the Internet.

You can find more information on our website: https://anidb.net
Please refer to our news post for more details on our Patreon campaign:  https://anidb.net/post435773

Why are the funds needed?

For 15 years AniDB was hosted on the generosity of someone with a lot of spare server capacity, providing this to us for free. Sadly, all good things come to an end, and in December 2017, AniDB was without hardware to provide its service on.  We are eternally grateful to our unnamed hero for their long term support.

AniDB has since restructured our backend, and moved to a German service provider, Hetzner. At this point, our hosting costs come out to around ~$240 USD per month to maintain. This includes estimates for Patreon fees, withdrawal fees, currency conversions, and some averaged out annual incorporation costs and taxes.  Please see the Accounting page on AniDB for details.

Using Patreon allows us to post monthly to request funds from our supporters.  If we have enough supporters, a single post may handle multiple months, and so we will skip posts as needed to avoid creating any surplus past our rainy-day contingency allocation. Patreon activity will be published on AniDB in the public record.

Currently, the reward tiers are purely for bragging purposes only, and are not associated with any type of reward.

Goals
$1,612 of $1,680 per creation
7 Month's Costs per Post:
With ~$1,680 USD per post, we would be able to maintain the hosting for 7 months with a single post. Please see the Accounting page on AniDB for details.

Our goal is keep AniDB running, not to make money. The more donors we have, the less often we will post. Patreon activity will be published on AniDB in the public record.
