This template generates a short link to AniDB. The last parameter is used as link name name (unless you define the <altname>).

Alternative names

  • {{a|<aID>}} - Special alias for anime IDs, <ID> = "a" + <aID>.
  • {{short}} - The short template name.
  • {{anidb}} - Alternate short template name.
  • {{AniDBShortLink}} - The full template name.


The template can have 1 to 3 parameters:

  1. {{AniDBShortLink|<ID>}} - Link to anime related ID number.
  2. {{AniDBShortLink|<ID>|<name>}} - "Official" name of ID.
  3. {{AniDBShortLink|<ID>|<name>|<altname>}} - Alternate ID (English) name.
      <ID>  =  a  + anime ID number     - used to reference AniDB anime.
               cr + creator ID number   - used to reference e.g. a AniDB seiyuu.
               ch + character ID number - used to reference AniDB anime character.
                    Many more IDs are mentioned on the Short links page! 

    <name>  =  Official name of the "ID related page", used as link name.
 <altname>  =  Mention a better-known (English) alternate name.
