You can get a complete listing of all commands Chii[AR] supports using !help.

Various commands for Chii[AR] require you being logged in!


How to login?


Requirements You need a working account on AniDB. (See: How and why signup to AniDB?)

Join the channel #anidb and open a query (pm, personal chat/message) to Chii[AR]. In the query window write:

  • auth <username> <password>
    Where <username> and <password> are your AniDB username and pass.

Alternatively you can also use the /msg version. For that do a:

  • /msg Chii[AR] auth <username> <pass>
Note DON'T forget the "/" or you'll post your password in the channel!

Either of what way you choose, if the login worked Chii[AR] will send you a message saying login accepted. If you get the message login failed and you typed your username/password down correctly(!), you either don't have an AniDB account or you haven't activated it yet. In either case please read the Signup FAQ.

Why does !anime work, but <!...> doesn't?


This works:

<UserA> !anime strawberry egg
<Chii[AR]> ANIME: I My Me! Strawberry Egg (93), also known as I My Me! Strawberry Eggs, 13 eps, Year: 2001, Rating: 5.51 (2686 votes), Reviews: 11 (avg: 7.52), DB: 34 eps/491 files, More info: https://anidb.net/a93


But this doesn't:

<UserA> !vote strawberry egg 9
<Chii[AR]> VOTE: no such anime: strawberry egg


The reason behind this is that all commands other than the !anime command require a full match. That means the anime title you enter has to be the main title, a synonym or an added short title for that anime.

This is done because the result of an !anime command with a title which is not in the database can lead to pretty unpredictable results. The same request could even return different anime on each execution. This makes it unsuitable for all other Chii[AR] commands. (i.e. you don't want to vote for the wrong anime, now do you?)
