About Us

A fanlisting is a web clique that lists fans of a particular subject. Unlike most web cliques, a person does not need a web site in order to join.

The Anime Fanlistings Network is a directory comprised of anime and manga fanlistings.

Come and join our community!


If you got to this page using any other means than the main apply page (the one with all the categories listed), you risk your application not making it to the appropriate staffer. Don't rely on your memory or a bookmarked page — we sometimes change the email accounts or the names of the categories. You might see the form but it will send to the catch-all account and we can't tell which categories they are supposed to go to.

Sometimes you will not see the category in the apply form, if this happens, go back to the Categories Apply Page and click on the link again. If you don't see the category your application WILL NOT get to the correct staffer!!!

Adult Requirements

  • Please make sure you've read the rules carefully and checked the approved section before applying.
  • If you're applying for more than one fanlisting, please use a separate form for each fanlisting you want.
  • If the fanlisting you want fits into more than one category, please apply in both categories. Please check the rules for more information.
  • You may submit only six applications at a time for all categories. If you have already sent in six applications in any of the categories on this network, you may not apply again until they are either approved or rejected. If you already have six fanlistings on upcoming, there is no point in applying because you cannot be approved for anything further.
  • The Adult category only covers fanlistings for officially produced mature manga and anime series (e.g. Genres: Yuri, Series: Kizuna). Unofficial productions such as Doujinshi or Fanfiction must be applied for under the Fanstuff category (e.g., Doujinshi: Naruto, Fanfiction: Yaoi).
  • Please make sure your information is as complete as possible. Include the full names of series, characters, songs, etc. Given names should be in the original Japanese order (in most cases, this is family surname first).
  • Adult fanlistings are no longer approved solely based on sexual and/or violent content. Where the Series was published is the major determining factor on whether the applied topic is to be listed in the Adult category or not. For example, the manga series Haou Airen was published in Sho-Comi (Shougakukan), a magazine for high school-aged teenagers, and so it is listed in the Series category; on the other hand, the manga Love Mode, which was published in BexBoy (Biblos), a magazine for adults, is listed in the Adult category under the Series subcategory. If you are unsure of whether your fanlisting belongs in the Adult category or the general categories, please feel free to fill in a contact form before applying.
  • Adult Series and Adult Movies/OVAs are to be applied for using the full Japanese and English (if it has an official English version) name of the series/movie/OVA. Please do not apply with only shortened names or translated titles (e.g., apply for G-Senjou no Neko (Il Gatto Sul G), not the shortened title G-Neko).
  • Adult Character applications must include the full Japanese (and English, if there is one) name of the series AND the full original (Japanese) name of the character. If the character has a Western name or if their name is always written Western style in the original Japanese series, then write the name, ”Surname, GivenName” (e.g., for the Western named character Mina Tepes, apply for: Dance in the Vampire Bund: Tepes, Mina).
  • Adult Relationships are to be applied alphabetically and listed as: Series Full Title: SurnameA NameA & SurnameB NameB.
  • The Adult Songs subcategory is for adult anime themes only, and listings are to be applied for as: Series Full Title: Full Song Title (Opening/Ending/Insert) (e.g., Gantz: Last Kiss (Ending Theme))
  • Companies, Conventions, Genres, and Magazine applications have to be mature-oriented to be listed in the Adult category (e.g., Companies: 801 Media, Genres: Yaoi).
  • Please accurately indicate which subcategory (Series, Characters, Relationships, etc) your topic belongs to in the subcategory field. Failure to do so may result in your application being disregarded and/or returned to you.
  • If the topic you wish to apply for does not fit into any of the current subcategories, PLEASE send in a contact form before applying.
