Shukofukurou for iOS is a light weight and easy to use Anime and Manga library management and title discovery application for iOS that allows iPhone and iPad users to manage their Kitsu and AniList lists in one place.
Note: You cannot watch Anime using Shukofukurou for iOS as it’s only meant for tracking and title discovery. Shukofukurou for iOS can provide information where you can watch a certain title.
The app costs $2.99 to download from the App Store (to cover distribution costs, e.g. Apple Developer Program) and is considered as a donation to the project. All future updates are free once downloaded. The source code is available for free for all users to compile and run on their devices, but without official support. (Note: The app can only run for 7 days on free Apple Developer accounts).
Now Supporting MyAnimeList (Coming Late October/Early November)
MyAnimeList support is now back, meaning that you can manage your MyAnimeList libraries in addition to Kitsu and Anilist. Beta testing is available to active patrons and people who downloaded the app. Want to help beta test Shukofukurou for iOS/iPadOS 2.0, become a patron.
If you already download Shukofukurou for iOS from the AppStore, you can request a TestFlight invite by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “TestFlight Request” and attaching your proof of purchase. Proof of Purchase can be a screenshot of Shukofukurou for iOS in your list of purchased apps or a receipt. Note that you will only be able to access the beta for 2.0 and not future versions.
Manage your AniList, Kitsu, and MyAnimeList Lists in One App
No longer you have to use different iOS applications to manage your AniList and Kitsu list. Shukofukurou for iOS allows you to manage both your AniList, Kitsu, and MyAnimeList Anime and Manga libraries within the same application.
Explore New Titles
View information about a specific title or browse through current and previous seasons. You can find new titles you can become interested in. You can also view related titles, cast information (Anime only) and read reviews/reactions.
Learn More about Characters, Voice Actors and Staff
Shukofukurou allows you to browse and search through staff and characters. You can view the character’s backstories, appearances, and voice actors information. In addition, you can view detailed information on staff members, manga authors and voice actors.
Never Miss an Episode Again
In the past, you have to check the airing schedule to find out what anime is airing on a particular day. With Air Notifications in Shukofukurou, you can receive notifications on when the next episode it airs. You can select which library and which titles to receive airing notifications. In addition, you can view which titles are airing on a particular day.
Note: Full support on AniList, but on Kitsu, you may not be able to receive notifications on some titles.
Optimized for iPad
Don’t settle with a AniList, Kitsu, or MyAnimeList Library management app that is a blown up version of the iPhone version. Shukofukurou for iOS utilizes the big screen on the iPad to bring an experience similar to the desktop version. When in landscape mode, the sidebar, which allows you to access different functionality is always shown. Also, additional swipe buttons for viewing the title on site, advanced edit, manage custom lists and more at your fingertips. Lastly, you have access to keyboard shortcuts when a keyboard is attached or connected via Bluetooth.
Your Lists are Safe with Us
Shukofukurou for iOS is the only iOS application that allows you to export lists in MyAnimeList XML, JSON, and CSV format. That way, you can easily back up your list to cloud storage services and local/external storage, adding peace and mind.
Scrobble What you are Watching
Shukofukurou for iOS supports scrobbling of titles you are currently watching through a share extension. You can easily use the title and episode of the show you are watching in the Safari web browser or Crunchyroll app to update your entry without manually updating it.
Note: VRV and Hidive is only supported through the Safari web browser using the share feature.
Lightweight and Feature Packed
App Size is becoming a big problem since third-party apps keep growing in size. Shukofukurou takes a different approach by taking a minimalistic approach by following the iOS design guidelines and not needlessly add unnecessary graphical assets while being coded in Objective-C. This allows us to deliver the best anime and manga library management experience without taking up your phone’s storage.
Compared to our competition, on the iPhone 8 with iOS 12 installed, our app currently weighs only 4.3 MB in size.
Note: No support will be given for unofficial/self-compiled versions.
