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!


The Fanlistings Network has been around for a very long time, and as a partner network, The Anime Fanlistings Network shares the same dream and mission. Our goal will always be to provide a network and central listing directory to "unite the fans" of as many different anime/manga subjects as possible.

The Anime Fanlistings Network is run by a small group of people. We are, however, a group of volunteers. Most of us are students, people who are employed full-time, or people who are currently between careers. We are not millionaires, children of Donald Trump, or gifted with the power of growing money on trees. The Anime/Manga section of TheFanlistings.org, now residing on this network, has experienced a rate of growth that is unlike anything we have previously seen before. Since 2004, this section has gone from less than 250 subjects to over 6000 — and our growth is still increasing!

The following sections will, hopefully, outline for you the costs associated with operating The Anime Fanlistings Network and will show you how we need your help. If you decide that you would like to help us, your options are at the bottom.

How Much?

At the moment, The Anime Fanlistings Network can fit on a shared hosting plan, and currently costs $9.95 per month. We hope to raise this through occasional donations and through the sale of donated goods on eBay. We also pay $28.90 per year for the domain names, which will be funded through the same sources. As the network grows, these costs will likely increase, and the need for donations will certainly rise at that time. For now, your donation ensures that we have no problems paying hosting, and will raise up a surplus against future costs.

What Does Donating Give Me?

Donating to The Anime Fanlistings Network will give you a warm, happy feeling for helping out a site that you love and that is in dire need of financial assistance. It will give you our undying gratitude. It will give you good karma. It will not mean that you get preferential treatment in any The Anime Fanlistings Network approval decisions or any otherwise VIP treatment for the time being. We will, however, keep records of donators and might potentially develop some sort of appreciation system for your very generous help.
