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 7 million requests weekly. And this includes the use of the most popular Anime/Manga apps around!

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.
