A typical MyList

Your MyList will probably be the feature of AniDB you spend most time with, so getting to know it well should be a priority; that's what these pages are for.

You should also take a look at: How to Add Files to Your MyList.

Your MyList is where your list of anime are. Every anime that you have added a file for will end up here, and you can at a glance tell when you have a complete anime and what you have seen. You can see what you have voted and if you've written a review for a particular anime. It takes just two fast clicks to see which files from which groups you have for any anime, and you can quickly tell if you have them on your HDD or on CD or not (this is called the file's state). If you want to change a file's state, you can do that from here too. In the rest of this article, we will tell you how to do all these things, and much more.

Note The information on this page is based on having Javascript enabled on AniDB. Some things might be different if you have it disabled. We recommend enabling it in your profile.
Note When viewing other people's mylists some features will be missing.

Mylist-expanded anime.png

When you have expanded an anime entry, you will see a list of the episodes you have files for for that anime.

The table contains the following rows that cannot be customized:

Expand

At the far left is a plus-button (Plus.gif) which you can click in order to expand the entry. This will expand all episode entries you have showing on your screen.

EP

This will show the episode number.

Title

This will show the title for the episode and an icon if you have watched it. The episode title is clickable, and you can click it in order to get additional information about that particular episode. In this column you can also see an icon indicating the mylist state of the episode as well as one indicating when it was was watched. Hovering over the later will show the date when it was watched.

Length

This shows how long (in minutes) the episode is. If this says 0 it may either be a very short episode, or the length haven't been added to the DB. Feel free to add it yourself.

Date

This will show when the episode was first aired or released. If this date is shown in italics it means it shows only when the episode was added to the DB instead of when it actually aired. If you have this information, feel free to add it yourself.

Files

This will list how many files you have for this episode.

Action

If you only have 1 file for this episode, you can change whether you have watched it or not here.

Expanded Episodes

NEEDS UPDATED IMAGE Mylist-expanded episode.png Expanding an episode will show a table that can't be customized with the following columns:

Checkbox

At the far left of the expanded file entry you will see a checkbox that you can mark in order to change some things about the file. See the Update Selected Files section.

Tip You can select multiple checkboxes by clicking on one, then holding shift and clicking on another

Fid

Here you can see the fid of the file, it is clickable so you can use it to get additional information for that file.

Group

Here you can see which group has released the file you have. It is just the group's short name. If you want to find out more info about that particular group, just click on it.

Size

This lists the size in bytes of the file.

Lang

Shows the languages of the audio and subtitle streams.

CF

Shows the container format of the video and audio streams.

Quality

This lists what quality people have thought the file was. This is very subjective and not something you should heed without question. If a file is listed as bad quality however, that is usually correct. If you feel the quality-rating is wrong, feel free to change it yourself.

Misc

Shows two flag indicating if the file was avdumped or not and if the CRC matches the official CRC as released by the group.

Storage

If you entered anything in the storage field when you added the file, that will be shown here (e.g. if you want to indicate that the file is on Anime DVD #21)

Source

If you entered anything in the source field when you added the file, that will be shown here (e.g. how you obtained the file). Activating the "Show file source instead of personal source" option in the profile will display the source of the file instead (e.g. VHS, TV, DVD).

State

This lists where you have the file stored. On HDD/CD/deleted/unknown. You can hover your mouse over the icon to have what it means written on the screen in a tool-tip. This also shows if you have watched the file and on what date.

Action

These icons let you mark the file as watched/unwatched, edit the entry, or remove the file. You can hover your mouse over them to get a tool-tip on screen telling you which icon does what.

Update Selected Anime

This button has an accompanying select-box, which is illustrated to the right. This select-box lets you choose different things to do with the entry/entries you have marked to update:
