Short introduction

AniDB is a mostly user-driven database. Changes to most entries can be requested (short: creq) directly on the website, using the "Request Edit" link which is displayed on the anime/ep/file/group page (only if you're logged in), everything else can be done via the DB Change Request forum (please read this first). If you added an entry yourself, you can directly edit it. Otherwise, the changes will be reviewed by a mod before being granted. Since there may be questions concerning the change, please make sure you don't miss any new anidb-messages (myplace -> mymessages).

Golden rule: Except for obvious changes, always describe the reason for the changes you made and/or the source of your information.

What exactly can be corrected and where can I find the "request edit" link?

Anime entries

On the bottom of each anime-page, you can find a "request edit" link, where you can change the title, type, episode-count, release-dates, producer, url, image and description. If you want to change the secondary titles, synonyms, genres or remove relations, please either describe these changes in the creq-description or use the DB Change Request forum. To add new synonyms or relations to other animes, you can use the corresponding links right below the "request edit" link.


By clicking on an episode-number, you can reach a popup with the episode's details and the "request edit" link. There, you can change every property of an episode.

Group entries

Every group detail page has a "request edit" link. To reach this page, click on the group-name anywhere in AniDB, for example in the grouplist. There, you can change most properties of a group-entry. To add or remove a sub or parent group, please use the DB Change Request forum.

File entries

When expanding ( the episodes on an anime-page, you can reach a list of files assigned to each episode. Clicking on the (mostly 5-digit) file-id in front of each line opens the file-details popup with the usual "request edit" link. You can change all properties of a file here. Explanations of the different values can be found in How to add new files to AniDB. To delete a file, move it to a different anime or merge it with another file, please post the reasons in the DB Change Request forum.
