Frequently Asked Questions about Extensions.

Aniyomi does not endorse or recommend any source, and there is no best extension.

Instead, we encourage users to spend some time trying out a few sources themselves and discover what sources work best for them. What works well for somebody else might not work well for you.


Aniyomi isn't responsible for slow, down, missing chapters/episodes, or subpar image/video quality of sources as it doesn't host content.

What is a fansub source?

Non-officially licensed series are translated by scanlators, often found on their websites or MangaDex. Compare with official sources like MANGA Plus By SHUEISHA or VIZ Shonen Jump. Learn more in this Wikipedia article.

How do I request new extensions?

Open an issue on GitHub if not already there. Check the removed extensions list first.

Enabling third-party installations

When prompted while installing your first extension, allow unknown apps installation from that source. For newer Androids, enable per-app in Install unknown apps.
