<aside> ⚠️ WARNING Doujinshi, Manhua, and Manhwa are not separate formats on AniList. Instead, you have to toggle the Self-Published option for doujinshi or change the Country Of Origin for manhua and manhwa.



Provide the source that the work was adapted from.

The available options are: Original, Anime, Manga, Light Novel, Web Novel, Novel, Doujinshi, Visual Novel, Video Game, Comic, Live Action, Game, Multimedia Project, Picture Book, Other.

Like relations, sources will almost always all branch off of a single entry.

Source Type

| --- | --- |

<aside> ⚠️ WARNING Just because earlier released entries are based on a source material, does not mean all subsequently released entries are.

Example: The movie Sword Art Online Movie: Ordinal Scale is a direct sequel to Sword Art Online II and a direct prequel to Sword Art Online: Alicization however, it is not based on any portion of the Light Novel series.


<aside> ⚠️ WARNING At times an earlier released work may refer to a later released work as the source. This may happen with a manga releasing months before an anime as promotion for the anime. The manga should have the anime listed as the source.

Example: The movie Summer Wars was released on August 1st, 2009 but its manga was released on July 4th, 2009.


Country of Origin

The country that the media was originally published in and is targeted towards. This means OEL (Original English Language) series, French comics, etc. are not eligible for the database.

The available options are: China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan.

<aside> ⚠️ WARNING Overseas works that are later published by the above four countries do not count.

Example: Radiant is a French comic later published in Japanese by EUROMANGA.
