2. Brand Change
Anime Database API -> Minako API (This name is copyrighted)
3. Rate Limiting Changes
Since I'm getting a lot of DDoS attacks (1000k requests in 1h, every week or 2 weeks), it's not possible to provide the service without rate limiting. So I decided to apply rate-limiting logic across all services including non-registered and registered users.
Global Website (https://cryental.dev, https://keycipher.dev, https://minako.moe): 250 requests per minute. (IP based)
Minako API: 500 requests per minute for registered users, 100 requests per minute non-registered users (IP based), global limit to 50000 requests per min.
Keycipher Enterprise API: 500 requests per minute for registered users, custom limit will apply for company panthers. Global limit to 50000 requests per a min.
Other Services: 800 requests per minute for registered users, 300 requests per minute for non-registered users (IP based), global limit to 50000 requests per min.
You will receive a JSON response with
xAuthError, 429 status code. Please check headers if you get the 429 status code. It follows standard guidelines.
4. Copyright Changes
Minako API collects data from TMDb (https://www.themoviedb.org/) and notify. moe. Thank you for notifying me. moe (https://notify.moe), mainly Akyoto to giving me permission for using their data. Minako API will use notified. moe as a main repository in the next update. Minako API can charge you in the future as a subscription model for the server cost (For dedicated resources). But mostly not if your requests are not that much affecting to our users.
5. New Features
Minako API (Previously Anime Database API) will get a lot of new features. It will notice in my website.
Keycipher Enterprise API will upgrade to v2, including security changes and route changes for RESTful API standard guidelines.
Keycipher Enterprise API version v1 will be deprecated due to security issues and it will be removed soon.
Finally, thank you to all companies and users who support me. I'm glad you to provide such services for free. If you have any requests, feel free to leave a message here!
