Hey! Im very happy to announce that we made a few big steps forward in finishing the calendar beta version! Our coder (God bless him!) went rampage for the last few days and gave us cool new update! Starting from long awaited clicking in titles to get some more info to watching anime online in damn good DivX quality!
- Twitter and Facebook icons on the top-right side of the page.
- Clicking on titles available, giving you lots of info
- Small news/notes system on the main page (you can read previous notes clicking the small arrows << >> on the left or right side of the note)
- Clicking on your username will direct you to your profile, after clicking on settings you will have options for your profile too.
- New link in menu ‘Anime List’
- Small covers that are shown on summary popups
- Check next month on the calendar, you will see text ‘Probably airing in this month:’ - there will be shown episodes without exact air dates, something like waiting-room, after we will know the exact dates, episode will disappear from there.
- Final episodes are marked with purple icon.
- You can choose what titles you want to see - English/Romaji or Japanese
- You can switch on or off the small covers showing in summary popups
- Listing every title that we have on calendar
- Options - Show all or Show only recommended (recommended by the staff of animecalendar.net )
- Top100 if you will look for something to watch
- Series are divided to Shows and Archive (series that are older than 1 year) to eliminate long titles searching in filters
- Titles are coloured (airing, upcoming series, finished) to help you find fresh series.
Series Page (example):
- Basic info, alternative titles etc.
- Links to aniDB, animenewsnetwork, animeNFO, anime-planet and official anime site.
- Icons saying if anime is recommended (gold stars - if recommended than active) and if you can watch this title online (animeFTW.tv logo - if available online icon will be active)
- Nice big cover.
- Episodes listing, list upcoming episodes or all episodes (click-able, click there and check )
- If anime is available to watch online, small TV icons next to episode titles (on the list) will appear - click in active - it will redirect you straight to animeFTW.tv and the episode you want to watch.
Watching series online is possible because of animeFTW.tv, remember that animeFTW.tv and AnimeCalendar.net are two different websites. AnimeCalendar.net doesn’t take responsibility for videos that doesn’t work. In order to enjoy those very nice quality episodes you will have to create an account via animeFTW.tv and install DivX Web Player. Quality of the videos is worth it! Enjoy!
Hope I didn’t forget about something, its all for now. Every bug’s you see please report them via our contact form.

Hey! We updated our calendar system, so as you can see things look a little different now and hopefully it will work much much better. We encourage you to check the settings where we added few new options (more coming soon) and we fixed the most annoying bugs like login and others. The script isn’t fully finished yet we are still working very hard and you can expect lots of more new functions soon, please be patient!
Uh, i just don’t know where to start…
Probably you noticed that there are no translations, well, due to system change we had to re-write whole calendar. Long story short, the translations that we had are no longer useful. I’m truly sorry about that, just please bear with it.
About new options:
- Theme/Style change, for now you have 3 different color themes to choose.
- Week starts from Monday or Sunday.
- iCal, you can synchronize your personal calendar with animecalendar.net
- Profile settings
- Log in with user name.
And more more to come.
- Fixed login, calendar will not log you out after one hour which was very annoying.
- Fixed lots and lots of few minor bugs.
At the moment, please report any bugs via our contact form and be patient its just beta version and we work very hard to finish it as soon as we can.

As much as i love this one, it gets me a nice headache because of the airing dates.
For everyone that don’t know whats happening - i’ll tell you - first episode of Suzumiya Haruhi S2 aired May 21 and it (as far as i know) will air every week on Sun TV and few other TV stations.
Add it to your filters.
For everyone that missed it - just google ‘DB suzumiya haruhi’ and you’ll get tons of links to download it.

yeah, we know that the end of the world is coming shortly, we saw the “bug” … but don’t worry, we will fix this “end” soon, our mighty programmer is working on that.
And… NO, the calendar’s day is not going to an end so no worries.

Just wanted to let you know that we’re here. ohh and we would be very happy if you could click on google ads once in a while and spread a word about our site to your friends, as they say - more people, more fun

Today we updated our calendar system a little bit. Here is the Changelog 0.3:
1) New option (you can find it in ’settings’) allows you to change language, but at the moment we have only one translation which is English. Thats why we need a little help from you. Please check this - Page - if you want to help us make this calendar better.
2) New options in Filters - [ Show only selected titles ] [ Mark selected titles ], go to the filters page and check it, you will see the difference.
3) Better ‘Log in’ and ‘Settings’.
Don’t worry, there will be more much useful updates in the future! Just wait a little bit.

We got few emails with questions about “Xam’d: Lost Memories” anime, here is one of them:
What about the anime Bounen no Xamdou (Xam’d: Lost Memories). It’s a good anime, and I would like to know when it is airing.
Well, we really wanted to add this anime but there is a little problem. We tried to find any useful information about air time for this series but… well… shame on us, we failed.
What we know about it is that:
Xam’d: Lost Memories premiered exclusively at the launch of the new video service on the PlayStation Network. For those of you not familiar with BONES studio, they are the creators of the great anime series Full Metal Alchemist and Eureka SeveN as well as many others. This truly is an original piece, by masters of their art, and it’s only available to you PlayStation 3 and PSP fans!
We tried everywhere, on google, on Plastation Network sites… but we didn’t find any legit source of information about air times.
So, when is it airing ? hmm, we heard something about every Tuesday but… we couldn’t confirm it anywhere. Sorry…

Long time since we wrote something here so… let me say few words.
Animecalendar.net was offline for 3 days due to unexpected server change and we hope this one will work very hard to satisfy you curiosity about series airtimes. Anyway, i want to thank very much our new hosting provider for saving our calendar with the speed of light.
Next important thing is our e-mail address. LISTEN CAREFULLY! Temporarily our mail (*@animecalendar.net) will NOT WORK!. So, our contact form is closed for now. (Our contact form is working perfectly now) Of course we cant cut ourselves from you just like that so we made a new (open 24h) mail adress: firstname.lastname@example.org . If you spot the enemy bug at our site please contact us, we like to read mails.
As you saw before, there was no updates till 18.07.08, well… we took some days off from this project but now its all up to date (we hope) and we work very hard to keep it that way. If you see something wrong please… please mail us.
The last thing is our calendar. Yeah theres going to be a huge calendar system update and you will love it! Just wait a little bit for it ^^.
Your Beloved animecalendar.net Admins.
