The Anime News Network (ANN) is a news hub for information concerning magna and anime. Founded in 1998, it is now one of the largest, online English hubs for all things anime and magna. Content includes: forums, videos, encyclopedia, news feeds, press releases and more.
The API allows access to the ANN encyclopedia two ways: basic reports and more detailed results. You can build a basic database for your third party app using the Reports portion, or you can include more complete information by using the Details part of the API, which also includes the ability to batch results (caching is encouraged). Returns from the API are formatted in XML.
You must reference ANN in any public website that utilizes the API.
