Uou may see a reminder dialog when you launch the program or certain features exclusive to users who donated. However, core functionality will be unrestricted. If you want to help support the development of Shukofukurou, MAL Updater OS X and Hachidori, consider purchasing a donation license.

Any proceeds will only be used to cover development costs and keeping the Unofficial MAL API service alive (hosting and domain names).
