The 'Submission Sources & Notes' panel

TIP

Please see the Websites section for useful sites to help you source information.

# Information Sourcing Example

Please note the sources for this example are all Japanese. All the example is for is to help state the value of finding as much information as possible.

I first heard about Alice-tachi no Hyouhon from seeing the article in Natalie's new serialization feed. The specific article is https://natalie.mu/comic/news/304388.

This article contains the series title (アリスたちの標本/Alice-tachi no Hyouhon), the author's name (小松万記/Komatsu Maki), and the names of the main characters (クララ/Clara and 高垣睦月/Mutsuki Takagaki). It also mentions the magazine issue containing the first chapter (週刊漫画TIMES11月2日/Shuukan Manga TIMES 11/02) went on sale on the day of article posting (本日10月19日発売/On-sale today, 19th October). It also provides two images that could possibly be used as a temporary cover or character portraits - the first image also includes the romaji reading of the author's name. The rest of the article is a description of the story.

There are two links below the article, one to the magazine (https://shukanmanga.jp/), and another to the author's Twitter (https://twitter.com/kmtmaki). Googling the author's name can also often bring up Twitter profiles, blogs, or Wikipedia articles.

The publisher's website has a sub-page for the specific magazine the manga is serialized in (https://shukanmanga.jp/s_times/). Entering the year and month of serialization, 2018/11 for this example, displays issues that mention the series - with the earliest stating the new serialization, color page, and on-sale date.

At the time of writing, a tweet from the author was easily visible referencing the new manga (https://twitter.com/kmtmaki/status/1051231595129012224). The tweet mentions the on-sale date, magazine and a description of the series. The included image also gives a bit of information about the characters and another option for character portraits. The author's Twitter avatar can also be used for their profile image on AniList, as well as including his Twitter link in their bio.

Altogether, the links above of the news article, magazine, and authors' Twitter, contain enough information, reinforced between them, to create a decent looking submission.

# Titles

Ensure all titles are used officially. Do not use the native title translated into English as the English title.

Titles for the 'Ao Buta' anime

TIP

Even if the titles are identical, it should still be entered in the respective field. For example, Sarazanmai has identical Romaji and English names but both fields are filled out.

# Romaji

The correct romanization of the title is preferred over all else and is required.

TIP

Please see the title formatting section for information on how format titles.

WARNING

Terms like "eiga" and "gekijouban" should be removed from the Romaji name.

# English

This field should only be filled in with the name given when the entry has been officially licensed or is being officially streamed in English.

English titles written on the cover or announcement of works (often as subheadings) are placed in the ‘synonym’ section, as they are not licensed titles.

TIP

It is acceptable to use the English title when a work is translated into English by legal streaming or reading sites such as TOPTOON (which is a Chinese service that supplies Chinese, Korean and Japanese works in English, Chinese and Japanese).

However, it could be replaced if a native English publisher (such as Seven Seas, Viz etc.) later licenses the work, or a publisher of the same native language as the original work (Example, TORICO is a Japanese publisher that releases Japanese works in English).

TIP

Sometimes a work, when released in English, will receive multiple translated titles. In this event the English name of its home release is preferred over a TV or streaming only release. In addition, in the event that multiple home releases exist, whichever is the newest release is the one that should be listed in the English field. Any outdated English names should be included in the synonyms field.

WARNING

English titles created by scanlators or fansubbers are not accepted.

# Native

The official native title.

In almost all cases this will be written in Japanese, Chinese, or Korean. However if the work primarily refers to itself in any other language, then that title should be used rather than the Japanese, Chinese, or Korean subtitle.

# Release Data

The release status for the 'Ao Buta' anime

# Release Status

The current status of the work.

Status Description
Finished Releasing The work has finished airing or serialization.
Currently Releasing The work is currently airing or in serialization.
Not Yet Released The work has yet to air or begin serialization.
Canceled An official announcement has been made that the work is canceled.

# Season

This will be the season that the anime has aired in and used for the purpose of compiling information for the present and future AniChart. This can be left blank if the airing date has yet to be confirmed.

WARNING

If a series starts release within the final few weeks of a season, it should be pushed forward to the next and be considered an early seasonal release.

WARNING

Seasons should not be applied to music videos, advertisements/commercials, or experimental shorts.

WARNING

Until AniChart has region filtering added, seasons should not be applied to non-Japanese media. Anime co-productions will have seasons applied on a case-by-case basis.

Season Period
Winter January 01 to March 31
Spring April 01 to June 30
Summer July 01 to September 30
Fall October 01 to December 31

# Start Date

The date that the work began airing or began serialization.

If a title releases early but then continues that release in a regular schedule, the start date should reflect that earlier release and the airing episode count should reflect it as well.

If a title was pre-screened at an event, regardless of location, the normal broadcast date is to be used.

TIP

For works such as one-shots, standalone movies, and anthologies, both the start and end date should be set to the same day. This gives it a 'Release Date' label in the main entry.

# End Date

The date that the work is confirmed to have finished airing or finished serialization.

# Format

# Anime

Format Description
TV Anime which have episodes of or more 15 minutes in length and broadcast on television.
TV Short Anime which are under 15 minutes in length and broadcast on television.
Movie Anime that have originally been released at theaters.
Special Specials that have been included in DVD/Blu-ray releases, picture dramas, pilots, etc.
OVA (Original Video Animation) Anime that have been released directly on DVD/Blu-ray without originally going through a theatrical release or television broadcast.
ONA (Original Net Animation) Anime that have been originally released online or are only available through streaming services.
Music Music videos.

# Manga

Format Description
Manga Professionally published manga with more than one chapter.
Light Novel Light Novels.
One-Shot Manga with just one chapter. This includes pilots for manga that were published fully afterward.

WARNING

Doujinshi, Manhua, and Manwha are not separate formats on AniList. Instead, you have to the toggle the Self Published option for doujinshi or change the Country Of Origin for manhua and manwha.

# Source

Provide the source that the work was adapted from.

The available options are: Original, Anime, Manga, Light Novel, Novel, Doujinshi, Visual Novel, Video Game, Other.

Like relations, sources will almost always all branch off of a single entry.

Source Description
Original The work was not adapted from any other form of media.
Anime The work was adapted from anime.
Manga The work was adapted from manga.
Light Novel The work was adapted from a light novel.
Novel The work was adapted from a novel.
Doujinshi The work was adapted from a doujinshi.
Visual Novel The work was adapted from a visual novel.
Video Game The work was adapted from a video game.
Other The work was adapted from another form of media.

Example:

The light novel Ookami to Koushinryou was the first published release of the series, so it would have the 'Original' source.

It then has both anime and manga adaptations announced. Both of these would be given the 'Light Novel' source.

Any further spin-offs and similar relations would also be sourced to the light novel.

WARNING

Just because earlier released entries are based on a source material, does not mean all subsequently released entries are.

The movie Sword Art Online Movie: Ordinal Scale is a direct sequel to Sword Art Online II and a direct prequel to Sword Art Online: Alicization however it is not based on any portion of the Light Novel series.

# Country Of Origin

The country that the media was originally published in and is targeted towards. This means OEL (Original English Language) series, French comics, etc. are not eligible for the database.

The available options are: China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan.

WARNING

Overseas works that are later published by the above four countries do not count.

Example:
Radiant is a French comic later published in Japanese by EUROMANGA.

# Episodes & Duration

The final episode count of the anime. This should be kept blank until an official count has been provided, but can be altered if there are further announcements of episodes within the same series.

# Episode Duration

Please use the average length (mode) of episodes, rounded to the nearest minute. The 23-25 mark is standard for most TV anime. This can be left blank until a full-length episode has been released.

TIP

The mean duration can be used for entries with wildly varying lengths, such as Genius Party.

Volume and chapter counts are only added when the work is completed or confirmed complete. if the work is still publishing, both remain at zero.

One-Shots should have the chapter count as one and the volume count left as zero.

WARNING

The use of ‘original’ below is due to the fact that series can have new editions printed, omnibus volumes if licensed, etc. These can have different counts than the original runs.

# Chapters & Volumes

The total number of chapters in the original serialization of the work. This does include things such as ‘side’ chapters (Example: Chapter 5.5), bonus chapters and some prologues and epilogues.

This does not exclude special pages for things such as advertising volume releases or author comments.

# Volumes

The total number of volumes in the original print or eBook run of the work.

# Genres

List any relevant genres to the entry, always try to include at least two or three, but don’t force them if they’re not strictly relevant. They do not need to be overly prominent but you should be able to come to a decision on whether it is suitable.

# List of Genres

Action Music
Adventure Mystery
Comedy Psychological
Drama Romance
Ecchi Sci-Fi
Fantasy Slice of Life
Hentai Sports
Horror Supernatural
Mahou Shoujo Thriller
Mecha

# Synonyms

Official alternative titles for the work. These can be alternative licensed titles, shortened versions of the title, or subheadings shown on the advertising or cover.

# Examples

Example 1:

The series Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! has the synonym of ‘Watamote’.

Example 2:

The manga Shoujo no Skirt wa Yoku Yureru is also advertised alongside the subtitle 'Girls Skirts Fluttering in the Wind'. As the work is not licensed, this remains in Synonyms and not the English title field.

WARNING

Please be aware that titles created by fansubbers or scanlators are normally not allowed unless widespread in common use.

# Description

A basic, spoiler-free description of the entry. This should be in English and a source provided (whether taken from another site or written by yourself).

TIP

Descriptions use HTML.
Please use <br> for line breaks.
Links can be added as so: <a href="website">NAME</a>

# Formatting Best Practices

1) HTML Code

<br> is for line break. Always use this whenever there is a line break.

Example:

Mari's girlfriend, Arisa, loses her memories of the past three years, including all memory of their life together. However, it turns out that being crazy in love with someone transcends all realms of possibility.<br>
<br>
(Source: Girls in Boxes)

Will produce:

Mari's girlfriend, Arisa, loses her memories of the past three years, including all memory of their life together. However, it turns out that being crazy in love with someone transcends all realms of possibility.


(Source: Girls in Boxes)

TIP

<b> and <i> are for bold and italic, __but don't forget to use </b> or </i> at the end of the text you want to format.

2) If the entry includes one-shots, use:

<b>Included one-shot:</b> Romaji Title (Translated Title (if available)).

It should be placed at the bottom of the description.

Example: Mayoke no Darling
Example if the manga has multiple volumes: Nijiiro Days

WARNING

Don't forget to put the one-shot names in the synonyms.

3) For compilations or anthologies, enter:

Chapter Number. <b>Romaji Title</b> (Kanji, Translation); Magazine (dated)

Example:

6-9. Imouto☆Control (いもうと☆こんとろーる); Comic Megastore 2011-10, 2012-02, 07, kakioroshi

This means it's chapter 6-9 on that compilation manga.

Example Compilation: Hatsukoi Ribbon
Example Anthology: Gunjou Gakusha

4) Use italics if the description mentions the work.

Bakuman follows the story of high school student Moritaka Mashiro**...**

Example: Bakuman

# YouTube Preview ID

Only official videos by a rights-holder will be accepted, while this can be a CM, a PV is preferred when possible.

TIP

If the video has been region-locked, then YouTube re-uploads or Dailymotion uploads are accepted.

The ID is located at the end of the YouTube video URL.

For example, the ID for https://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=fq3abPnEEGE is fq3abPnEEGE
To add a Dailymotion video, prefix the Dailymotion video ID with dm--

# Twitter Hashtag

The official hashtag used by the studio or Twitter account for the anime. Include the # sign.

Multiple tags can be included by having a space between each tag, and the link on the entry page will include all hashtags separated by an ‘OR’ gate.
(Example: '#三ツ星カラーズ #カラーズ' will direct the user to '#三ツ星カラーズ OR #カラーズ')-

# MyAnimeList ID

The ID number for the entry as per MyAnimeList. This can be found at the end of the URL.

For example, the first City Hunter anime has the URL http://myanimelist.net/anime/1470, with the ID being 1470. Please make sure you are linking the correct anime or manga ID as this is used to accurately import lists.

WARNING

Please don’t add a MyAnimeList ID if the entry is unapproved. You can normally spot unapproved entries as they will be on zero user lists you'll receive a warning message if you try to add one to your own list.

Each submission to MyAnimeList generates its own ID, so it’s possible that the ID for the entry submitted to AniList will not be the ID of the entry that MyAnimeList later approves, as some series will have multiple unapproved versions on the website.

Incorrect IDs mean users using the import feature will receive an error or incorrect entry. Unfortunately, MyAnimeList can often take a long time to approve works (more so for manga), as such you may not be able to link entries for a while.

# Self Published

This is unchecked by default, and should only be checked if the work is a doujinshi.

# Adult

It is important that you check this for any 18+ releases or pornographic works (hentai). This is used to filter adult anime if a user has disabled 18+ mode on their profile.

Works that feature sexual content as plot devices or for fan service without it being the central focus of the series should not be marked as adult. For example, series like Yosuga no Sora and Shinmai Maou no Testament are not marked as adult.

However, other series with strong sexual content such as BL (Boys’ Love) and josei focused manga and anime like Rent Boy or Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita should be marked as adult. Although they don’t fit the typical western definition of hentai, the intent behind them is enough to consider them pornographic.

TIP

If you’re unsure whether or not a series should or should not be marked as adult, feel free to ask in the Discord and/or ping one of the hentai moderators.

# Locked

A lock check will disable the option to add the locked entry to lists or favorites and append ‘(Locked)’ to the title. This should only be used for entries that are to be later removed.

WARNING

This feature is not available to standard users.

# Forum Thread

This will create automated threads in the Release Discussion section of the forum 24 hours after a new episode of an airing anime being released. This can be used at your own discretion as to whether you feel that relevant discussion will be generated on the thread. Excessive use could cause a high amount of empty threads.

TIP

Users may also wish to create their own threads and it can be disabled for this purpose. If the option is enabled, a post will not be made if one has already been created by a user.

WARNING

This feature is not available to standard users.

# Images

# Cover

This is the cover image for the entry. A cover is required.

Only official artwork or assets should be used, and the piece should be from the native release. This means no use of covers with translations unless there REALLY is not anything else.

Examples of good covers can be seen at the bottom of this section.

TIP

Please refer to the Image Dimensions and Templates section for additional information on recommended sizes, if required..

WARNING

Images should not have borders around the artwork. Crop them out when required.

WARNING

Pornographic works should have appropriate censoring of the genitals and visible breasts.

Image addition page for the 'City Hunter' anime

Image addition panel on the regular submission form.

TIP

Local image upload is currently available to moderators only.

# Animated Media

For anime, the cover can be a key visual, announcement piece for a new anime, a textless VHS/DVD/BD cover, official illustration, and, in cases where nothing decent is available, a screenshot or cropped piece from the work itself.

# Written Media

For manga and light novels, where possible, the cover image must be the Volume 1 release of the original print run for the series.

For series that are web-only or have yet to receive a printed volume or eBook, the cover can be announcement pieces or official illustrations.

If nothing else is available, the first page of the series itself will do (many one-shots will have this).

WARNING

Please don't crop volume covers for written media unless removing spines or borders. It is fine to upload them directly.

Spine Example:

    # Animated Media Examples:

      # Written Media Examples:

        A suitable image to use as the header banner in the entry for the anime. As with cover images, this should be official artwork or assets only. The image should be of decent quality and not too gaudy, it is up to yourself what you think would look good as a banner.

        The image should ideally be cropped to 1900x400px and either .jpg (.jpeg) or .png format. However .png banners will be converted to .jpg (.jpeg) for storage.

        TIP

        Please refer to Image Dimensions and Templates, if required.

        # Characters

        # Adding Characters

        The characters page will let you manage the characters that feature in the work. Adding existing characters, creating new characters, and assigning their roles and voice actors are all done here.

        Character addition panel for the 'City Hunter' anime

        # Add Characters

        The popup after pressing the ‘Add Characters’ button will let you search for the character you want to link, which you can then select and confirm. Back on the main page, you’ll now be able to add a role and voice actor.

        TIP

        Multiple characters can be selected at once. You are also able to search for a new name and continue selecting characters. Everything will be carried over when 'Done' is pressed.

        WARNING

        A singular narrator character is used for all narrator roles in which the narrator does not have a physical apperance in the work.

        # Character Role

        Each character has the option to be set as a main, supporting, or background character. For many of these, it will be up to your own judgment.

        # Create New Characters

        # Given Name

        Their given name(s) in correct romanization.

        # Surname

        Their surname or alias in correct romanization.

        # Native Name

        For native names, the order should be ‘Surname Given Name’ without spaces.

        Example:

        Eriko Kimura’s native name field should be '木村絵理子' (KimuraEriko).

        A lot of current entries are incorrectly written as '絵理子木村' (ErikoKimura), which is the wrong way round, or '木村 絵理子' (Kimura Eriko), which contains a space. So, if you see it, please try to correct it.

        TIP

        Dictionary browser extensions can help with kanji readings if you know hiragana. if not, then feel free to ask for help in Discord.

        An exception to the above is when a name is natively western.

        Example:

        Reinhard von Lohengramm’ would be written as ラインハルト・フォン・ローグラム. Keep in mind the rules of the language the name is born from, as terms like 'von' and 'van' in German would be tacked onto the start of the surname.

        Additionally, any middle names should be placed at the end of the given name.

        Character entry for Miu Matsuoka

        # Alternative Names

        Any alternative names that the character is known by, excluding spoilers. Example: Ryo Saeba from the series City Hunter is known as City Hunter by some characters.

        # About

        A basic description. It should be spoiler free (or contain spoiler tags) and contain basic information on the character. This can be hobbies, birthday, and qualities, to a background introduction.
        Example: Akari Mizunashi

        # Image

        This is the cover image for the character.

        A clean headshot or head and shoulders portrait should be used where possible. There is no preference for designs if a character has appeared in various media formats.

        Format should either .jpg (.jpeg) or .png

        WARNING

        A character's image should not be a spoiler for the work.
        Example: A character transforms into something else in a way that would be considered a plot spoiler.

        WARNING

        Covers should be as close a 2:3 ratio as possible.

        If you have to crop or create new images then 230x345px is the recommended minimum. Larger images will be downscaled to 230px width.

        Please refer to Image Dimensions and Templates, if required.

        TIP

        Local image upload is currently available to moderators only.

          Please refer to Image Dimensions and Templates, if required.

          TIP

          For many staff, images such as Twitter, Pixiv, or personal blog avatars can be suitable replacements if a photo portrait doesn’t exist. Cropping these isn’t required
          Example: Yamakawa Naoto, Takayama Tatari

          TIP

            TIP

            The language is set on the staff page itself, so if you are adding voice actors for multiple languages, you will need to add the same character again, then add each additional voice actor to the respective duplicate.

              # Staff Role

              Choose the role that the staff member had in the work. If the staff member had multiple roles, you will need to add the staff member themselves multiple times.

              # Anime

              In terms of anime, for staff, if they have specific episode credits, they should be credited in the following formats; ‘Storyboard (ep 5)’ or ‘2nd Key Animation (eps 1, 3, 8, 11, 13)’ with a comma, followed by a space after every episode number. If they are credited with a studio next to their name, do not include the studio. If they are credited for at least 3 consecutive episodes then it should be formatted as ‘Animation Director (eps 7-9)’. For insert songs, the name of the song should only be used in the event that a single episode has multiple insert songs such as ‘Insert Song Performance ("Song Name"; eps 7-9)’, otherwise it should be formatted as ‘Insert Song Performance (eps 7-9)’.

              WARNING

              Keep in mind that some titles do not follow conventional episode credits (Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt or Princess Tutu are both good examples). Care should be taken to convert episode credits into how AniList lists episodes.

              For example, Princess Tutu is often credited as if it were a 26 episode anime but AniList lists it as 38 as episodes. Episodes 14 to 37 were aired as 12 minute long episodes. A credit of ‘In-Between Check (ep 26)’ elsewhere might be ‘In-Between Check (ep 38)’ on AniList, you’ll need to determine the convention used on the site you’re pulling the data from. Conversely, for a title like Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, a credit for ‘Episode Director (ep 2)’ would be ‘Episode Director (ep 1b)’.

              # Manga

              In terms of manga, for staff, credit writers with 'Story' and illustrators with 'Art'. If a creator is both, credit them with 'Story and Art'.

              WARNING

              For spin-offs and related works undertaken by other authors and artists, you will need to use the Original Work or Character Design roles. This will almost always apply to anime adaptations.

              (Example: Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa)

              # Add Studios

              # Relations

              This section allows you to set the relation of works compared to others in the same series or universe.

              Relations page for the 'Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!' anime

              WARNING

              Relations should be in chronological order.
              Examples: Bakemonogatari, Fate Stay/Night

              # Opposite Relations

              When a prequel, sequel, alternative, character, compilation, contains, source, or adaptation relation is added, the corresponding reverse relation will be automatically added to the affected entry.

              Example 1 (Adaptations):

              The light novel Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!was announced to have both manga and anime adaptations:

              Adding the novel as the 'source' to both the manga and anime automatically adds the manga and anime as the 'adaptation' to the novel, and vice versa.

              WARNING

              If a work that isn't eligible to be on the website, such as a full novel, receives multiple adaptations (such as anime, manga etc.). They would be linked through the alternative relation.

              Example 2 (Sequels):

              The anime City Hunter had a second season released:

              Adding City Hunter 2 as the 'sequel' to City Hunter automatically adds City Hunter as the 'prequel' to City Hunter 2, and vice versa.

              Example 3 (Compilations):

              The now-defunct magazine, Pure Yuri Anthology Hirari, which solely published one-shots, released an anthology containing a selection of six of their one-shots:

              Adding Isshun no Asterism (one-shot) to Shuuden ni wa Kaeshimasu (anthology) with the 'contains' relation automatically adds Shuuden ni wa Kaeshimasu as the 'compilation' to Isshun no Asterism, and vice versa.

              # Parent Relations

              When updating all other relations (spin off, side story, character, summary, etc.) you have to do so from the 'parent' entry. The parent relation will then be created on the other entry as the opposite.

              Example:

              The light novel Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! had the manga spin-off Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Bakuen wo! announced:

              To link the entries, you must be in the light novel entry and set Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Bakuen wo! as a 'spin-off'. The 'parent' relation will then be set in the opposite direction back to the light novel.

              WARNING

              One-shots that are adapted into a proper serialization are linked through the 'alternative' relation. The source would remain 'original'

              # Branching

              Relations should always branch off the first publication of a series if the series has multiple formats, unless it is clear that a spin-off or adaptation is clearly branched off from a later format.

              Example:

              The light novel Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu was serialized in January 2014, and had a manga release, Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu, in May 2014, which is linked through the 'adaptation' relation.

              Two spin-offs, Mushoku Tensei - Roxy datte Honki desu and Mushoku Tensei: 4-koma ni Natte mo Honki Dasu, were then serialized in December 2017 and October 2018 respectively. Both spin-offs only branch off the light novel, and not the manga, so are only be linked to the light novel.

              # Removing Relations

              Removing relations at this time is limited to moderators.

              WARNING

              While adding relations often will automatically add it to the related work, removing relations does not. Moderators need to remove the relation on both related entries.
