Anime Characters Database

Site Stability Fixes
Jan 11, 2018
We're off to an interesting start this year, with high traffic knocking one of our servers offline twice this week!

It is possible you may see:

Error 503 Service Unavailable
Try again in a moment!

Over 12 hours, only 2 requests met the criteria I set to trigger this - so hopefully it will be a pretty rare occurrence.

I'm also looking into doing another round of optimizing / rolling back inefficient queries.
Merry Christmas !

PDA Icon

Members will see a PDA icon next to Anime Characters Database.

Clicking it will bring up a simplified interface for your watching list~!

Any anime you are currently watching, you can click the Add to Anime Planner link. Then easily keep track of the last episode you watched.

It's funny, when I first created ACDB in 2006, I did it using frames. Then I read something, possibly in an AdSense Policy that frightened me so much I never used frames again on ACDB.

But given the choice between writing hundreds of lines of insanely complex AJAX code, or a simple function + iframe ... you can guess what solution won out. xD

I've started watching Made in Abyss and I'm finding it to be quite good! It's different from what I normally watch, but stays true to the adventure theme. Check it out if you're looking for something good to watch.
