Jikan API

Unofficial MyAnimeList API

Jikan (時間) is an open-source PHP & REST API for the “most active online anime + manga community and database” — MyAnimeList. It parses the website to satisfy the need for an API.

Free & Open Source

You can focus on making your app while we keep the requests rolling.

REST API

With nearly limitless quota on requests, you have the freedom to create without the need of writing your own parsers. Save yourself some Jikan.

Jikan caters to OVER 5 million requests monthly. And this includes some of the most popular MyAnimeList apps!

PHP API

The PHP API is the parser itself. It's what powers Jikan's REST API service. You can help us by contributing and reporting issues - so we can keep this API running bug-free.

Sponsors

Jikan's REST API runs on multiple servers to help distribute high loads of traffic and requests to MyAnimeList. This is thanks to Matsujo Hibiki, who has been been keeping the lights on for the Jikan REST API since 2018.

Furthermore, a shoutout to WolfDan who was sponsoring us before that!
