I'm an Android app developer and anime fan, and would be interested in using your API to make an AnimeNewsNetwork app, if ANN approves of it, of-course.

It's a public API and it was made to be used; there's no need to ask for special permission.

Fixed.

Not working again. Same symptoms. (btw, nslookup fails to find cdn.animenewsnetwork.co.uk, but is able to find animenewsnetwork.co.uk as well as www.animenewsnetwork.co.uk).

To confirm:

Page: www[dot]animenewsnetwork.co.uk/encyclopedia/api.php
Links to (e.g.): cdn[dot]animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/api.xml?anime=4658
Which redirects to: cdn[dot]animenewsnetwork.co.uk/encyclopedia/api.xml?anime=4658
Which returns (in firefox): Network Error (dns_unresolved_hostname)

(note: links broken to ensure the forum does not reformat them)

Is that still a problem? I think I fixed it before, but since I'm not in the UK it's a little difficult to test.

Hi Dan & Shiroi Hane,

I was trying out the API and noticed there are some cast/characters missing from the output of the XML API.

e.g. for
http://cdn.animenewsnetwork.com/​encyclopedia/​api.​xml?​title=​13857/​13888/​13507/​6704

For Code Geass, some of the cast/characters not available:
- Kousetsu Urabes
- Kaguya Sumeragi
- Nagisa Chiba
- ...

For Accel World, same issue:
- Yellow Radio
- Sand Duct
- Aqua Current
- Red Rider

I'm not sure if this "bug" is intended or so. Can you clarify on this?

And if you don't mind me adding a request here as well.

Will really appreciate if we can have the song information (OP/ED/INSERT) and related anime/manga added into the API.

Thank you.

- Zylias

Apparently it only includes primary and secondary cast, not minor. Whether or not this is intended, I do not know.

Thanks Shiroi Hane, that would explain. Can I ask then any chance for implementing what I've mentioned (Song Info & Related Anime/Manga) into the API?

That's up to Dan42. (It may take awhile before he answers.)

Song Info... yeah, that makes sense and it's easy enough to do. You'll see it appear in the data over the next 24 hours.

Related anime... let me think about that.

Woot. Thank you very much, u saved my day! And if you wouldn't mind as well for the minor characters and related anime infos... hehehe. (Excluding unamed characters as end-users usually can't relate them well.) Twisted Evil

Is there a way to get info on people/voice actors through the API? If not, would you consider adding it?

I tried accessing the site through curl, and various other methods on my server, but I always get a 403 forbidden response - is the ip blocked, perhaps? I tried on my home network and it works fine there. Any ideas?

If the exact same thing works on your home IP but not your server IP, yeah it's probably an IP problem. What's your server's IP?
