Anime-Planet is one of the biggest anime sites in the world, and most people are surprised to find out that it's run by only a single admin and a small group of volunteers. We're anime fans just like you, and work on the site for free because we share your passion for all things Japan.
If you love Anime-Planet and want to help support the site, you're in the right place! Here's all the ways you can help out:
Anime-Planet's server hosting is expensive and as the site grows, the costs grow. The only way we can pay for the servers and other site costs is through the few ad units on the site, and also your donations (through Paypal). All donations go straight into supporting the site!Make a donation
We know, ads are a drag. They're also the main way we're able to pay for the servers. We've tried to keep ads extremely minimal because we know they can be annoying - for example, there are no ads in the profiles, very few on other pages, and we'll never put up pop-under, in-text or other intrusive forms of ads.
If you use ad blocking software, please consider adding anime-planet.com to your exception list!
We partnered with Crunchyroll to bring your favorite content here to watch on Anime-Planet. Crunchyroll offers premium memberships that give you access to ad-free, HD streams (which you can watch here on A-P!) and faster episodes of brand new anime. By signing up for a free trial through the link on Anime-Planet, you support Anime-Planet as well.Get a free trial now!
We're looking specifically for people who have a good amount of time and would like to stay on the project long term (as opposed to only having a bit of time here and there). We work on a private Github repo.
If this interests you, please contact us and let us know your qualifications, any code samples, etc. ^_^
Finally, if you'd like a fun way to help out that involves meeting lots of people, consider joining one of our forum-based site clubs. These clubs are run by fellow Anime-Planet users who are dedicated to helping people and the site out.
