Who is Chii[AR] and where can I find her?!

Chii[AR] is a bot, which can be used to maintain your mylist, cast votes, check crc's and various other things.
You can get a complete listing of all commands Chii[AR] supports using !help
Chii[AR] can be found in #Anidb and #Anidb-spam

Note: ALL Chii commands are lowercase!
Various commands for Chii[AR] require you being logged in!

How to login?!

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 and !vote,... doesn't?

this works:

<Rah> !anime i my me 
<Chii[AR]> ANIME: I My Me! Strawberry Egg (93), also known as Ai Mai Mi ! Strawberry Egg,
13 eps, Year: 2001, Genre: Comedy Romance School, Rating: 7.54 (490 votes), Reviews: 7
(avg: 7.71), DB: 18 eps/166 files, More info: 

but this doesn't:

<Elandal> !vote i my me 9 
<Chii[AR]> VOTE: no such anime in db: i my me 

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 animes 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?)

Can be used to get a random anime name.
You can specify:

  • !randomanime db (or without param)
-> random anime name from db
  • !randomanime watched
-> random watched ep from your mylist
  • !randomanime unwatched
-> random unwatched ep from your mylist
  • !randomanime all
-> randomw watched or unwatched ep from your mylist

Mylist - adding/removing files/changing states


Can be used to add a file, which is already in the db to your mylist.
NOTE: you CAN'T add new files with this cmd and there is no way to do that via IRC, you have to use the CGI for that.
You can add a file via 1 of those 3 methods:

  • !addfile <anime/aid> <epnumber> <group>
  • !addfile <fid> (use !file <anime> <epnumber> first to get the fid)
  • !addfile ed2k link
Note: Note that you can add a "w" at the end of the command to add the files as watched to your mylist.
Files added with that command will be added as unknown to your mylist. Use !state to change that.


The opposite command to !addfile used to remove files from your mylist

  • !remove <anime/aid> <epnumber> <group>
  • !remove <fid> (use !file <anime> <epnumber> first to get the fid)
  • !remove ed2k link
  • !remove last (Last is last file shown with !file.)


Allows you set a file to a different state.

  • !state <anime> <epnumber> <state>
  • !state <fid> <state>
  • !state <ed2k link> <state>
  • !state last <state>

<epnumber> may be all or upto <epno>, last is last file shown by !file
<state> is: unknown/hdd/cd/deleted/shared/release


Can be used to mark one or all file(s) in your mylist watched or unwatched.
You can either change the watched status of one single file with:
single episodes:

  • !watched <anime> <epnumber>
  • !watched <fid>
  • !watched <ed2k link>

several episodes:

  • !watched <anime> upto <epnumber>
  • !watched <anime> all

for single files it works also the opposite way. meaning you can set files unwatched when repeating the command!

!watched - passive

If you're logged in and change your nick Chii[AR]will check if your nick matches a known anime+ep combination and will mark the file watched should it be part of your mylist.

i.e. let's say you have ep 1 of NGE in your mylist marked as unwatched.
If you login @ Chii[AR]and change your name to


Chii[AR]will mark that file watched in your mylist and send you a notice.
If the file is not in your mylist you get a notice to. You could then use the !addfile cmd to add it to your mylist right away.
Another possible naming scheme is:
